Whoa! That was some expertly hid passive aggressiveness.

I saw you talking about your skill level in that other thread, this game is perfect for you because you can come and take us all to school.

U may not know me that well. but I don't hide my aggressiveness. And on the other thread I was defending my amount of experience with open world pvp and trader hunting. I was just stating some simple but important facts about this new game. idk if it will be good or bad for naval action open world addition.

That was my choice; To pick between you not having a clue about what makes wot/wows/wt tick while pretending you do OR you raging about the arena game simply because you don't like it while pretending to state simple facts. I chose to not insult your intelligence.

There will be more drama to come about the new game and player migration. There is no need for enmity between the two player groups, both games could provide recruitment for the other. You guys could use the arena game as a training tool for your RvR guys.

Naval Action:  Lose Not a Minute!

 

But really, Legends is good as anything.  Legends as in Legendary ships, captains.  Legendary navies.

Love how you say I'm against the game. when I never stated that. I don't know if I am or not. I have not played it. I'm done with RVR. I just hunt people down and kill them because that's what I want to do. and the more they cry the more I enjoy it. Is it not a fact that WOT and WOWS games last no more than 15-30mins? is it not a fact that the players can play 1 game for 20 mins and then walk away? U can go look up the battle timers for WOWS if you want. BUT I guess those are just pretend facts... kinda like imaginary opinions or something.

as far as the two player groups getting along. I don't know if they will or not. one game may help the other or it may kill the other. time will tell.

Yup, that's right.

Maybe I should explain why I thought your post was a loaded one?

Stating how long matches lasts in other games is absolutely neutral so that wasn't what made me and Olav raise our eyebrows.

 UI is supreme. that's all that the world of tanks and warships has. is UI. rest is just arcade combat.

To think that a game has players because of the UI is a baffling statement. Why would anyone say such a weird thing without ulterior motives?

Overgeneralization usually comes from the need to politicize a particular point.

they want instant action that is fast paced.

Instant action is indeed the main forte of arena games but there are many players who are happy with NA's slower pace. btw, the pace in NA is already significantly accelerated so we're already sinning against realism.

 They want a 30 min commitment at the most.

When people sit down to play a game I'm sure they often make room for more than 30min max, even if they "don't give 2 craps about realism" and "want instant action that is fast paced". Your limitation of 30 minutes seems forced and artificial, which makes me suspect politics.

they want to play a round and walk off.

I'm sure many appreciate the option to just do a quickie. I've done that many times in Aces High, WoT and old Sea Trials. This does not mean that...

That's just crazy talk.

Now you know how I could misunderstand you so terribly.

Plenty of arena lovers play 6 hours in a row, doing 7 minutes battles. Do your math. ( they say they can't spare 2 hours and then spend 6 hours, but that's another discussion ).

They do not enjoy, particularly, the need to explore a open world. They want to get into the action and shoot stuff.

It is known the arena games do not deliver adequate realism ( AH lalas ? WT instructor ? WoT everything ? ), but that's a developer's choice hence becomes a player's choice to even get interested or not.

But the same happens with the big world games that require travel, terrain recon, hunt, chase, survival :)

So, the more choices the better as long as both products keep their own identity, and in the long run who knows, maybe even more models ships can be produced for OW and get to appear on the arena and vice versa.

Ironically in NA the battles got by far more realism than the OW :-)

That is correct :) the combat is top notch.

But as age of sail combat was anything but a designed arena, the living breathing simulation of the age of sail in a west indies map that leads us to combat beats any "fair, equally" combat realism which seldom was :)

Not a fan at all of Legends or Arena, reminds me of the flood of obscure bottom-of-the-barrel mobile games who just juggle any combination of the same terms.

Naval Action : Broadside (to Broadside)

Naval Action : Fire! (as she bears)

 

On a similar note though, in terms of marketing, promotional materials for new ships in the future and such, this is a trailer that I quite like and would get stoked about if it applied to age of sail ships rather than 80's military jets. Just for inspiration.

I don't like "arena" at all. "Naval Action Sea Trials" is too long. "Legends" sounds good, either

Naval Actions Legends

or

Naval Legends

I like "Beat to Quarters", it has punch.  A marketer would probably hate it though.

4chan would love it.

I like Naval Action Legends, and here's why:

For anyone who started playing after the launch of the open world, the much-lauded "Sea Trials" period - something that many in the community continue to celebrate and speak favorably years on - has become something like a "legend" within the Naval Action playerbase.

Insofar as I understand the new game to be bringing something like Sea Trials back, within our own community the "Legends" moniker is in fact spot-on.

And then there's the whole "Legendary" aspect of the ships we sail, many of whom are historically significant.

And the name implies the opportunity for players to "become legends" through their skill and dedication.

And of course, the whole "League of Legends" thing, though I don't know if I feel it's the most relevant allusion made by the proposed title.

Lastly, keeping "Naval Action" in the title makes sure to show the lineage between the current game and the new one.

TLDR: It's a fine name, I think.

Question

 

Will keeping naval action in the title bring too much of a negative connotation? Given some of the reviews and disgruntled players, is it a good idea to leave it a part of the name?

What about Naval Action: Beat to Quarters ?

Even though someone else has suggested this previously in the thread, this name is way, way, waaay too fitting in my opinion not to suggest or show support for it again.

It's historically fitting, retains the original game's name in the title, and most importantly : it arouses curiosity - from people both familiar and unfamiliar with the term.

Such a title would cause people who are not even in the slightest looking for a Age of Sail simulator to find out more. And more exposure is always a good thing.

Maybe it's the ow game we should rename, and keep "naval action" for the "legend" one

The base game could be "NA: age of sails" or "NA: caribbean" and the arena-one "Naval action", "action" fits more for the arena version

 

Otherwise, i would pick "Naval action: confrontation" or "Naval action: linebattles", "Trafalgar", "rolling broadside" or "raking fire" ".  Sea trial means nothing to me and legends sounds too fantasy.
