Please repair OW PvP. Current state is unacceptable and does not fit to announced by you "we want people to go pvp".

To do list:

- fix the PvP rewards, they are DRASTICLY too low;

- Revenge fleets (inverse ganking), we need ANY way to safely exit the battle;

- Lack of "fair fight" factor - signaling perk;

- Some kind of tp to freeports (for example with long, even 3-4h cooldown).

 

Please look into it and do something. I really belive that i speak on behalf of many devoted PvP-ers.

Unrelated but speaking of the Essex, if it normal that the 1st knowledge slot needs 2250 xp and second one 9050 xp on this ship ?

Compared to something like the Indefatigable that is quite tanky, have better guns and able to rack up xp way faster and more easily in small fleet PVE battles for example, a ship that if i make no errors need 2700xp for the 1st slot and 10900 xp for the second,  same for some ships ranked a bit lower that need way less xp, requirements XP for knowledge seems off for the Essex, surprising to see it so high comparing it a bit with some other ships, does not seems scaled in proportion with other ships.

The only time I really see this is an issue is if there is an overwhelming force outside of yours battle. If there is shouldn't you be sunk? If you head to enemy waters and the enemy mounts a force to hunt you down, they should be able to take you out. If it is in home waters, then you need to work with your nation to stop the enemy from mounting such a large force in your waters. If you don't want to get ganked, don't put yourself in a situation that it can happen.

Why? TP to FP only supports the idea of ganking and no recourse. If you TP to a Freeport that is not in your nation's waters, then you are hunting or trading in those waters. You should be open to attack any time you are in enemy waters. 

 

It sounds like you want to be able to safely hunt enemy waters and not worry about the enemy mounting a counter attack.

Well they are all 5th rates, but I haven't looked to see if the rate of xp is base off BR or rate of ship yet.  I do know the light frigates take a lot less for sure.

It has been discussed million times. There is nobody outside my batte when i attack, but attacked player can magically talk to other captains that are miles away and call for help, then those captains magically using time warp sail those miles and camp the place where you are fighting your battle. Then magically using time curvature you appear in the same place and time when you finish your battle :huh:.

If you remove ALL forms of communication between players (its impossible) the current system would be ok, but the fact is - it doesnt work ane need to be changed.

level the field and get rid of the 3 mark system. 

single 'mark' with varied ways to earn them.  Of course my feeling is that PVP should earn the most.

 

As for Teleport to free ports.... YES.    this should be allowed,  maybe with a cooldown.

I can agree with every point except second one. Invinsible gives you ANY way to safely exit the battle. Instead of looking for facilitations for gankers, Devs should think about new systems/events/rewards which will increase PvP rate in different regions than capitals.

So you say, that we cannot help our friend, cause you are ganking him. I see your point, but remeber, with current system you are "magically" closed with him in battle and we are not able to do anything even if it is in front of our capital and it doesnt make any sens too.

You forgot about time compession in "OW" and "in battle" sailing speed. 30 sec invisibility is useless, gives no protection, because escape route is easy predictable.

Just remember back in the 1800s, it took weeks and months for this ships to go anywhere. So if a private attacked, the surviving crew would get to shore and tell the Admiralty, the Admiralty would send out ships to hunt him now. The game just doesn't work that way for a ton of reasons, so communication is instant and you have to sail smart. You can successfully hunt enemy waters and not get ganked, you just may not be able to sail up to the capital. He'll a guy in a Lynx and a Reno to a fatman yesterday.... no ganking. 

Sail smart! Sail S-MART!!

I remember about time compression and in my opinion it is the bigest disadvantage of this game. But you cannot predict how long battle will be, and maybe in this time somebody would be able to join. Tbh whole system should be rebuild if we want make good system for both sides.

I do, however if I go into enemy waters, I expect a revenge fleet. It doesn't sound like you do.

A thing like surprise needs 950 and 3800 xp for the 2 first slots , a cerb needs 4050 for the third slot, 6650 for the 4th slot, and yes they are not the same ships in terms of armor or firepower, all are 5th that will encounter mostly the same ships in PVE missions and get the same rewards when sinking them,  some will get it easier in pve missions than others of course.

For what i could experiment: at best you will encounter a frigate that gives around 366xp in those M&C missions, the xp bonus for completing the mission does not add up to the knowledge experience ( same stuff when attacking traders AI in OW with any hip, they are now all armed, have a setup for boarding with marines, muskets etc, and no matter if under-crewed for a trader ship they still shoot back as a warship fire rate, but nothing earned as xp for capturing or sinking them, no matter if you attack a LGV with a cutter or with a essex ).In the pve missions you do to get a bit of cash and try to unlock a few slots so you won't be "naked" and too much disadvantaged later for pv,p the more often you encounter 2 navy brigs, one merc and a navy brig, one renomee and so on but all those give less than 366xp a frigate gives per mission if i make no errors.

Unlike the indefatigable you will probably not do a small M&C fleet mission alone in a Essex even less in one of those other ships, redeemed my indefatigable yesterday only, have not sailed it yet as still missing some guns for it ( cash grinding here i come ) , but guys i know suggested me that it was not hard and well earning to do the fleet missions in solo mode with this tanky and well armed ship, so while it is also a 5th rate that will encounter the same ships in pve missions ( and I suppose deal with them in a blink with the gunnery it have) it has the capacity to earn way more and faster in pve M&C fleet missions or by taking on bigger AI ships in OW bringing more xp, yet it is only a bit higher than a essex for xp requirements.

The requirements for the Essex just seems extremely high compared to this ship and some a bit lower, have not seen requirements for all ships, when i restarted 10 or so days ago i looked at the wiki and only a few ships were listed, not sure if there is a list with all ships and xp needed so we can really have a global picture and compare, but yeah for me it seems off and odd to say the least.

Doubt he does. Basic cutter scouts that simply follow any group worth attention and summoning revenge fleet is common practice now. Just yesterday had 4-5 hours of battles vs 25+ spanish like that.

Sits in greenzone and refuses to give battle, then sends basic cutter to follow your group. After exiting epic event voila 25 spanish including 1st and 2nd rates. That's to meet our 10-15 group of 5th-4th rates.

 

Another amazing "tactic" is to tag bots in front of active town and sail away during NPC battle. Have a cutter outside camping waiting for someone to leave port. This one should be countered that if no damage done for 5 mins it kicks everyone out of the battle.

With ow pvp Otto means the destruction of solo players and newbies with 3-5 vs 1. After that he would like to be safe.

Supporting these playstyle would be an impudence and more newbies quit.

If u have a fair battle there comes no revenge fleet.

But pvp rewards must be raised.

Freetown teleport please at least 24h cooldown.

I think that maybe cool solution would be to give a choice to defender to close or leave open battle in PVP (in OW)... so if you are not in the circle and defender will instantly close the battle after ...you need to face him alone. So gankers if want to ez gank one dude will have to put more effort in OW...also if gankers face revange fleet the choice is now on their side how to work it out... and revange fleet has to put more effort to catch smaller and propably fast ganking group...

I saw that battle on Moscalb's Twitch Aphilas. Its a shame we have to face such a terrible mechanic.

Getting ganked is not the problem..its getting ganked by the people who can get to the battle because of ow time compression and sit outside and wait for you to be dumped in their lap

ad 1) I agree

ad 2) you can quit playing for a moment if you are afraid of revenge and come back latter to safely recover your ship

ad 3) what do you mean by "fair fight"?

ad 4) I strongly disagree, because players should be located on map in some sort of predictable manner, not TP everywhere anytime. Freeports should be not bases for random raiders.

If teleporting between friendly ports is allowed, then teleporting between free towns should be allowed as well. 

Just add a cool down timer.  

Like the tow feature. 

6 hours. 

Or.....

maybe only allow pirates to teleport to free towns?

None of this should be posted in patch notes but.

Revenge fleets didn't exist in the age of sail. If you can't log out after hours of doing battle, I don't understand how you can deny there is a problem. ANYONE Who does OW PvP consistently and isn't a green zone camper understands it.  Naval Action has transitioned to hardcore PVE/PB players and OW PvP players are getting the short end of the stick. Ignore it until it is no longer a problem.
