Here is the rub, it has been in this status for how long?  Three years? Maybe 4 now... 

At this rate it will never finish. 

As long as features are added, it will not change status. It will change when it is considered to be feature-complete and everything is then only about finding the last bugs. The fact that features were added is mostly because they were demanded by community. So stop demanding and we'll see ;)

Believe it or not -- you have bought a software piece in ALPHA status. This means not even beta. Consider it to be full of bugs and be glad when you've found one. Don't see it from a serious perspective.

I know what i bought and i have no problems with fact, that bugs happen. I have problem, that alpha is using for justification for everything. Taking responsibility for these bugs is normal in final product, and in alpha aswell. In my opinion, if we are testing their product, cause its "Alpha", developer should make for us fair environment in which bugs dont decide about (for example) RvR results. In this case they did.

No one can ensure that a bug will not decide about RVR results ... ? It's a test environemnt, nothing more but nothing less aswell. You have the chance to learn all the game mechanics before release so you will have a great advantage then over new players. Be glad for that :)

if you look at things from the "Achilles and Tortoise" paradox then all things will never finish 

http://platonicrealms.com/encyclopedia/zenos-paradox-of-the-tortoise-and-achilles

 

I am just pointing out the obvious.  No need to get defensive. 

And I can list a few dozen if not a hundred vaporware games that have never left "alpha" stage.  But 99% of those are not sold on STEAM at an "A" list game price.

Just saying.

On further review of this patch it is a good patch.  I just wish you would look at the redundancy of some of the ships and stop adding ships that werent successful or even used in the region and add ships that were used.

Have you ever heard of Duke Nukem Whenever?

See above reply.  And Duke Nukem is a special animal... if you wanted to talk about things talk about anything Paradox did... or didnt do.

I have always seen it as a reference point.  When you see a store has a big sale, you know not every thing listed will still be there when you show up, but maybe you will find a good deal any way.  That how I see the trader tool

I agree . but if a port has a produce able good and no players producing it then the port should .that way your not sail all over looking for it  hours

it was confirmed 1000 times before. Trader tool is useless overall if you want to make a purchase decision.
Trader tool is only useful if you are selling something. it does not provide reliable information on purchasing at all

Do you plan to work on Econ and more Advanced shop? maybe something similar to Albion or Potbs AH? or we are going to live with this primitive one. 

Thanks. 

P.S. Yacht is missing guns, with shadows still on while on OS.

I'll underline it again. Test doesn't mean, that dev should not respect our time in game. And big advantage? I paid for it. Everyone can. Tbh that argument is pointless, cause anybody in every game can say, that other players have big advantage becouse of longer play time.

I only meant you should play for the fun of gameplay and don't take everything so seriously because it is about testing a piece of software ...

I'm taking my time seriously. And i will do it, even if we are talking about piece of software. It doesn't mean that i don't play for fun, because im doing it. And in my opinion this is the end of this discussion. I said everything what i wanted. o7

You are not using facts when making your statements. Port battle bug was fixed the next day. Find a game dev who fixes bugs faster and then we talk.

I've seldom seen devs who implement new content over and over again in this relatively short development time ... must state this clearly -- and game content is already much over the promised amount.

Maybe you should produce the coal. 

The market is yours as you've described it.

We all make faults and sometimes something that looks good on the papers turn out to be bad in reality. That's life but I can say that the changes made to gameplay over the past 1.5 years aren't trivial at all and that it is a huge effort to implement them over and over. Everyone who has only the slightest insight in game development knows this.

I do have a coalmine just because of that problem along with many thing I produce . But like many you fail to get the post. Most player don't won't to craft at that level because it requires a large investment . so most most ports don't have raw materials available because dev expect players to produce toughs goods .but there not henceforth you can't readly find them .that's why raw materials basic port stock should be available

@admin can we maybe get a short little list of the hotfix from the last two day. Nothing big just maybe mention which big bugs have been fixed and what not.  Really the crashing in battles is turning a lot of folks off from playing and we all ready lost two 1st rates cause of them and a few other ships.  F11's have been done and ya'll are pretty good at replacing them when it's the game fault, but would be nice to know if those bugs where found and fixed or still pending.   Keep up the good work I won't mention names, but another game i love to play just did an expansion, some major bugs on there single player mode and they pretty much said, "we will prob get to it some time in October with a hotfix."   I was like really you charged for this and than want us to wait almost a month.  They did a small hotfix but it didn't cover the very bad bug that was left in cause they didn't have the single player in the beta of this expansion.  That is the things we are glad ya'll don't do.

BR 250 for a Wasa is not really what it's going to be, right?

Honestly it needs to be between the 4th rates and 3rd rates BR wise and prob high enough to maybe not be made into port battles, but than again it's easy to get and what's the diffrent from going from the Aggy Meta to now the Wasa Meta?  Though do think the BR needs to be raised some.

So in reality what does the Raised BR do....apart from make it more difficult to tag them in the OW?

Haxus dev of Shores of Hazeron.

You challenged.

And it should be...

"Find a game dev who fixes bugs faster and then we'll (or we will) talk."

Not trolling just helping.

I find these raw materials in the national trade hubs.

Hello Everyone,

I am a new player, a newbie, started last week before the patch so I got a bit of the before and after the patch. As a new player, in my opinion this patch is a step forward and hopefully the game continues down on this path. The ship notes, the improved rewards are all great things for a new player and this game needs new players and for the PvP aspect to be able to bring them to speed faster. The ships, consumables need to be relatively cheap on a PvP server so you are able to get in/back to PVP fast. A game heavily relying on crafting and PvE grind should belong mostly to the PvE server. On a PvP server you should spend most of the time PvP'ing and if that doesn't happen you have to look for the reasons behind it.

Regarding the new players, based on my experience on a PvP server, the PvE grind is real. I think there still is a lot of room for improvement in that area to bring the new people faster to a meaningful PvP level which should be starting around 5th rate ships. Just my thoughts.

if you want pvp, just go looking at a place where a clan has control of a few towns, youll have pvp in no-time, ofcourse  the whole map still needs to settle, but thank god seal clubbing days are over...

if i want pvp i will just sail to a national capped ports im pretty sure the defending clan will come out quickly..

as for the cheaper ships, well its ok with me,it promotes more pvp, but im afraid everyone and their sister will be millionares in no time-and have everything they want and need, thus getting bored and leaving, it also takes away some of the tension, if you can make 600k in 40mins, who will even care if they still lose a ship? there should be a fine balanace between rewards and trade/crafting profits..

im not gonna craft ships anymore thats for sure, ill make way more money and comabt marks just running 1th rate missions.

That's the whole point, in my opinion the players should mostly care about losing or winning and not their ships.
