ANOTHER SAFE ZONE RANT.

Recommended Posts

@admin is this kind of players and gameplay you wanted in the safe zones?

on the bright side for the devs. at least you can make money with the pay to win Hercules because its the only ship you can afford to go mess with people in the capitals now since you can just redeem a new 15.5 ship the next day. just had to remind myself why there is no point in going out for pvp anymore. #great gameplay.

you just make it so that pvp is not possible in safezones but that would decrease the need for your dlc so that's not going to happen. 

you know what im not even going to bother posting ways to fix the problem. since I have made this post at least 3 or four times now.

How is this any worse than the super buffed 1st rates that used to spawn next to you in the safe zone. People cried that they were too hard and they wanted the safe zone nerfed so they could go get PvP in the safe zone, well now you can get PvP in the safe zone, you just do not like it when you get a OP response. 

I did not see you complaining the other night when you came outside KPR with a few large ships and a load of inexperienced players in 5th and 6th rates jumped in. It was 10v3 at one stage and the 10 Brits did not even reach the BR of your 3 vessels and you still had at least one more vessel join.

You know the RoE of the so called safe zones before you enter so why do you complain. If everyone stopped camping safe zones and went elsewhere there would be plenty of OW PvP, but people use the lame excuse that the safe zones are the only place to find players.

Personally I think the safe zones should allow no PvP but they should be changed so OW fleets in these zones give no XP, gold or drops, lower level missions should still spawn in the zones and higher level missions still spawn outside the zones.

yes to all of this BUT there should be a SAFE way to rank up and get gold. only the most basic ship building resources in the safe area. all good MMOs have pve content and pvp content. just gotta get the carrot on the stick to draw captains into more dangerous but profitable waters.

waaaaaa why can't I gank right outside capitals and get away scot free?  

e1e98562872e18cecfeed99ebddb4cdc-png.jpg

This was in and around the US safe zone today in a herc.  Solo.  I also helped out a swede while jumping another battle and almost took out an inger (he was down to 90 crew in boarding) before reinforcements were able to join something like 40mins after the battle started and broke it up.  I was astonished. 

Some folks are good solo safe zone gankers and then there's you.   stop sucking.

Just quit hunting noobs and people that don’t want PvP and you won’t get counter ganked? You know... those people outside safe zones? Or maybe, I don’t know, grind up a port or go to the PvP zone? 

It may take closing your mouth and breathing through your nose once in a while, but I believe you can do it!!

only newbs should be allowed in safe zone. that means some one who isnt good enough to complete tutorial. BUT.... OH WELL. no reason for anyone to leave safezone.= death of open world.

Proud?  No.  Just proving a point.  Safe zone ganking is possible if you don't suck at it.  Aka don't show up in a wappen outside a major capital and not expect to get sunk.  You made a post complaining about not being able to gank in the safe zone, I replied showing you it's possible.  if you don't suck  I've achieved similar results ina pirate frigate and a trinco.

BTW this also my tutorial herc that only goes 14.2.  Despite purchasing the herc DLC I haven't actually lost one yet.

Stop whining about having to work for your supper or just admit you want lazy pvp.  This post is very unrepublican like of you.  Donnie is not please.  Take personal responsibility of your situation, pull yourself up by your bootstraps and git good at safe zone PVP.

You do t have to have a 15knt ship to solo pvp.  I’m using a 13.5 not surprise with all 6 lbs with a clan mate in a Trinc on our

Spain alts down in Belize and can escape just fine.  If they are fast enough to keep up with us they get a good fight or split up and sunk.  I also been using a purple P. Frigate that is 14.5 for solo hunting.  What don’t see me doing is going to KPR and camping the green zones lol.

hercs aren’t win all either we been sinking them in shallows with H Rattlers and Niagara since they dropped on the OW.  Got a pretty good system to take them down now too.

know I’ll admit the xebec is a bit more a pain if you don’t have any in your fleet to match them, but man one good broad side and they loose most ther sails and you just dog pill (not board) them and focus and they sink fast.

Black Desert Online (one of the more popular MMOs right now) has mostly unrestricted PVP. 

Past a certain rank I think that you should be unable to earn combat rewards in safe zones period. This would include PVP marks and such. Then players would have to venture out and play the game. Don't want to be attacked? Travel in numbers and stay away from free-ports and hot trade zones.

After playing the game for 6 months or more I came to the conclusion that safe zones are indeed a  problem. GL will not invest the time to create a proper 'breeding' ground for newbies, instead we have these major pain in the ass chunks of sea that are magically protected and which encourage a zerging mechanic. What happened to 'hardcore' as advertised in the steam store page for the game.

People are dumb and just need to do their pve away from the safe zones. Stick a ship in a remote outpost of your nation and use that location to Pve. You will never get jumped.

Do use the multitude of threads about the same subject existent in both discussions and suggestions.

The amount of threads about the same exact subject is HIGH volume and often written by the same users.
