Please lord no, if i have to spend all those 100's of hours again to get where im at now?? No way im doing that again..ill just leave right away, love this game but please no...

You do know they will wipe every thing except xp/rank/crafting Shipknowedge upon release of the game.  We will all be back in BasicCutters and Pandora's or any other Premium ship we might have at that time only.  I honestly can't wait for it as it would be nice for every one to stat at the same level since we have had a merge since the last wipe.

Will you deliver the patch by end of june as one big patch with economy, ui and all the tweaks we asked for rvr, patrols, hercules, safe zones, repairs?

Make it. It is the best. Half made things dont have the desired effect. In the meantime, people will get a rest for NA and bring back with enough energy to test all the improvements made.

...sure... 🙄

As I posted earlier, the sample of a warehouse. Even with all the materials converted, is there even real need to touch upgraded eco at all ?... Not really. Not if we keep it all. Just my 2 cents.

It doesn't take long to get things back, but I would actually love a dang port wipe to clean house of all those clans owning ports that aren't active but have so much money in bank they can keep paying for them and well some ports that was taking cause of bad mechanics or dead clans dropping ports.

If the clans arnt active then they are even easier to take then neutral ports so it does not really matter.

not really if they have folks on friendly clan list others can keep defending the port.  We did that with RAM until they screwed up the drop the port so some other clan could pick it up.  They really need an option for dead clans or small clans that don't want ports any more to hand them off to another nation clan.

I have seen nothing from the devs saying that gold and silver mines or ore will be removed. In fact, they were mentioning a new building; a mint. I'll bet it's not going to make coinage out of fir or oak logs. "It's not weird if you assume" they don't want to hand players resources for the mint either. Pity we are all left 'assuming' when they could just tell us what the plan is (presuming they know).

And where do you takle gold and silver if mines will be taken out?

I hope they will keep also  already learnt crafting recipes and skill books, since they are basically the same (grind) things as ship knowledge.

Ships, gold, assets, outposts and building can go (except for eventually premium contents, which would have been paid in real money)... they are not difficult to recover.

Not really those are things you get from drops and rewards, to be fair we should have to re-find those things just like any one else.  Even though I have all the rare books on my main I wouldn't think it would be fair to a new player that I can have OP gunnery and boarding mods they can't get straight out the door.

Recipes for ships you can buy in the admiralty store for every thing other than 1st rates (those will need Victory marks).   

 

Now what I can see them doing and some other games have done, is do a pre-release wipe, lets say when we official go to BETA stage of the game and tweeking out the last moment things.  Do this a month before official release.  Than let all those with pre-sales keep anything they gain that month.  So we get a bit of a head start or any one that buys before release.  I do think when they go to beta stage the Pandora should no longer be offer to new accounts as it should be the Tester special ships just like the Yacht is the Pre-Steam special ship.

 

And I agree premium content that is paid for before release should be there ready upon release day.

Then you should have also re-grind your ship knowledge as anyone else.

Everyone has its own concept of "fariness" here, and I do not see any objective reasons why to treat in one way ship knowledge "rewards" and other kind of rewards, since they both are "rewards" for time and effort spent in game.

And to TBH getting rare skill books takes much more time and effort than grinding ship knowledge, so they should be higher than ship knowledge in the list of "saved" things.

PS: keep in mind also that another hard-wipe (it would be the third or fourth, I do not remember) in the acutal situation really could bring with it the risk of killing the game population.

Sorry if this was already asked, but what will happen to the labour contracts?

They won't be converted, you will keep it.
