Question

In the past I have seen a map that shows all the activity on the map within a month. Can anyone post said map. I would just like to make a point that the only action in naval action is happening in the safe zones and it has been that way for some time. The reality is that capitals are to important and offer to much content to be the "safe zone" for newbs. safe zones need serious restrictions on content in order to force the players to venture out into HUGE map that we have. For example imagine that DAYZ had made the northwest air base a player safe zone where no pvp happened and you couldn't get ganked.all the loot spawned right there so that would make the whole rest of the map effectively useless.... that is what has currently happened in NA. especially during the usa timezones. I would bet that over 65% of all the combat in NA happened inside safe zones. in the last month.

Let's see:

1. OP continually camps weaker nations with his hand-crafted fleet of PvP-focused players... check.
2. Said group then caps nearly all neighboring ports to safe zone forcing players back into safe zone... check.
3. Players who don't want PvP 100% of the time retreat to safe zones... check.
4. Said group now camps safe zones and further discourages PvP-averse players... check.
5. Now group complains that only action to be found is in safe zones.

Not exactly a head-scratcher, and while I agree there needs to be significant incentives and content put in place to get players outside of safe zones, I also think that capital zones and their neighboring regions should be no-PvP zones (high-sec). But if you can't be a bit self-reflective and understand that you're part of the problem exacerbating this trend... that's on you babe.

safe zones are shit. the AI are essentially worthless. MANY people have posted about things to draw players away from safe zones. but we have yet to get any of that content so its capitals and patrol zones

1. IF there was a better place to find people to kill we would be there.... check.

2. VCO continues to kill themselves rather than fight so they will never get better.... check. 

3.  capital areas are the only place to find players..... outposts are needed by capital zones.... check. 

4. your crew of non hand crafted  non pvp focused players has been doing the same things since you left usa nation. and was doing it at belieze before that... check... 

Your reply makes zero sense.  lol

I did it only in one day, because for me it is not possible to keep a running game 30 days

While your specialist PVP ganker teams  continue to hunt newbs they will either not play or stay in the safe zones, go test Legends.

The we are looking for targets is wearing thin.

we are supposed to be testing, not destroying the new playerbase.

perhaps your behind but legends is no longer a project being worked on by game labs. the game as been pulled from development. So basically what your saying is that if we want naval combat for the age of sail we need to go somewhere else?

all pvp except port battles or arranged battles in naval action =a gank.
