PVP Patrol Mission Feedback

Recommended Posts

Shallow waters was fun, but lots of gank. Swedish and Russian were ganking like mad.

Joined a battle 3 swe vs 2 usa, joined usa. When battle loads usa already sank. So it is 3 vs 1 , and ta ta 6 swedish join. Becomes 1 vs 9. Thx to them I think I managed 9k damage :)

Gathered 6 players from my clan, tried to join a so so even fight. We were 7 they were 5, boom we are 7 they are 15. And boom 15 Rus join our side. Few min. later, it was 25 vs 23 :)

Cutters are the real annoyance for shallow water patrol mission. Very difficult to hit, takes long time to kill. Cutter shoul be banned from patrol, anyone can buy a ship from shop 25-50k gold.

If missions are improved,will be a blast for sure. 1,5 BR difference is a good idea. Please give us also PVE missions, where we attack famous pirate X, in a BUC which is a bit overpowered with 2 pirate frigate escorts, let people join with max tier 5 ships. So 10 ships attacking famous pirate NPC, like mmo boss battles.

join timer is too long. Even if you engage into a even fight you can be sure it wont be anymore after some minutes

I think 20k XP is a bit much for the shallow fights.  3 battles yesterday and about 2/3 hours worth of fighting with 10+ people in all 3 fights was not enough to do 20k.  I did 14k.  I'd rather not have to farm AI in there.

10k seems appropriate.

I did 3 battles (2 times in a navybrig and one time in a brig, no slots unlocked and basic cheapcheap perm upgrades) at Shroud yesterday aswell (+two outside the area, one of those was against 6 prussians, probably because it would have been an interesting and challenging fight? :-p)... got plenty more than 20k damage in the event area.

I always joined the low-br-side.

Seems lots of people are having the issue where you cant join the low BR side. The few times the battles worked properly were wonderful. Over the course of the battle which ever side was weakest would tend to get new joiners and after the battle closed it was a 15v17 showdown. So much fun.

Sadly yesterday when the Russians were dominating with their sol fleet, the danes and Prussians made an alliance to take them out. The danes started the battle with the russians then we tried to join their side but couldn't. So the danes ended up in horrible odds and we were stuck outside.

I suggested that the multiplier changes as the odds change, so it would be based on the BR present when the damage is done.

I like the idea of a hostility version of the combat patrol.

Lots of fun today with the patrol missions, LOTS of people came out we had many good battles

BUT balancing is still an issue, as I got a few of these battles as well

Noticed a lot more people coming out for the new rewards, I would've stayed longer but ran out of ships. Overall the tiered rewards were a nice addition that I think adds a lot to the regular missions and more of this variety would do really well for PVP and NA as a whole. Credits to the devs for the quick work.

I should drive a lynx up there this evening and have a look-see at how it works.  I tried to get to Tumbado to try it out a couple days ago but somebody attacked and stole all my repairs before I could get there.

Repairs, the big issue since devs change the system.

Sailing over an hour to try to set up an outpost there was the other problem.  I guess if I had fleeted another t-lynx with half the repairs at least I would have been able to salvage those, but I expected to make it to the port before server reboot and was a couple minutes short.

It was  great, at one point I was looking at 3 different 5v5+ battles to choose from in the zone. I joined the underpop side every time :)
