I am a nerd captain who tries to properly dock at each location, rather than just pressing x asap to land. Who's with me??

In some places ( especially in Aquila ) "proper" docking techniques don't work. I can name 3 in particular, that if you approach the docks, will not let you dock; you have to come at them from the side. These places are: Achaea, Knossos, & Laestrygon.
So I just ram my ship toward the land then click "x", it's faster and simpler.

Sorry, I'm a "sail into the island and hit the X as soon as possible" pirate. I don't even pretend to try to dock properly. Sometimes I'm not even on the dock side of the island; I just go for the X. I'm glad you enjoy trying to dock correctly, and wish there was a badge or special ship item for folks like you, to reward your efforts. I'd never get it, but it'd be nice for others to aspire to.

I'm with you about half the time. The other half I spend when I'm Pirating out of pure boredom.

Yes Knossos does not work well at the dock, agreed.

I LOVE trying to dock properly. It's fun and keeps me immersed in the fun of the game.

Most of the time I dock somewhat around the docks but if it's too risky I go for the land and press X

Most of the time I try to do so, but if I'm in a hurry (Like if I'm being attacked or have to get off really soon.),I dock as soon as possible, or if it's simply impossible (Like places where there's literally no dock.).

Although, when I can I will dock at the dock.
