I just found one of those light blue community royal convoys. I needed it to unlock the Aquila figurehead. I rammed the first escort, killed 5 crew & sent it to my fleet no problem. Then I started chasing second escort & as I was getting closer it just blew up & sank for no reason. I didn't even fire on it, I was getting ready to ram it. WTF? :confused: So then I rammed the frigate & it said to hold B to board. So I held B like usual but instead of boarding it blew up & sank instead. DOUBLE WTF????

Is the icon still stuck in your game with no actual ships there?

Just go to taverns and they'll give you locations of Royal Convoys. Blue Royal Convoys are convoys you've discovered and have been added to social events. Blue Convoys stay there for your friends to see and go there and fight them. But they do have a limited time.

It might've been a bug when they blew up, but there's a bunch of Royal Convoys.

No, the icon for this one disappeared. But there's one up North like that. It's been there since the beginning of the game. I went to it 2 or 3 times but there's nothing there, it just keeps blinking. Is it a glitch or something?

I already cleared over 5 of the ones the taverns gave me. But I can't unlock the Aquila's Figurehead. I read that you have to find the light blue convoys & board all 3 ships. If you sink them it doesn't count.

Hmm, I got mine easily. Not sure if I went for social events or the regular convoys.

I think I have the same situation as yours (North eastern part of Cuba) and I don't know if it is related to the Box version since I used the 360 for playing that game?
My story: I missed that social convoy on day 1 because first I didn't know exactly what it was and second my jackdaw was too really weak for boarding a frigate yet and I got involved in a fight with the nearest fort there, and I since have a floating blue icon on the map, once I went there later for seeing a ship sinking, another time I really got a Royal convoy but it was a normal one and not a blue one. The icon is still there floating but nothing really happen when I go there.

Royal Convoys are always Blue. Naval Convoys are the white ones, and only received (or discovered) from barkeeps. Royal Convoys are only discovered.

This is true. The Naval Convoys do not count.

I don't remember exactly what happened. It was early in the game & I didn't know what I was doing & I think I got killed. It's been sitting there blinking ever since. It's at (750,741).

Oh well. I just finished the game so it doesn't matter anymore. I'm going to start a new one.
