    Hercules OW Spam

    We read you fine. Admin has said he's thinking about making speed profiles special again so your suggestion would fall under that proposed rebalance. He also said that herc would be kept as a capable and powerful ship, so you might not get what you want. I think your OP suggestion is a bit overboard. I wouldn't want a knee jerk buff of all frigates just because you're annoyed with all the hercs providing pvp content in OW.

    I think rebalance is more likely than messing with cooldown. You may discuss all you like but I don't think that's on the table nor will ever be.

    Hercules OW Spam

    Unsure... At least I wouldn't bet on it. The convenience of imported ships here is greater here than prem tanks in wot, and people spam prem tanks forever to grind cash and crew. I am in no way unique in that regard: I give up! Stupid, buggy spoilers that are uneditable!

    Naval Action Meme collection

    Could you please explain? Just like @Poryv I don't get it.
  5. This is fantastic! Now the guys will get what they want but they have to pay for it in perks. So dragging fleet ships and sextant leaves little room for fighting perks. Meanwhile I completely ignore fleet perks and sextant for full-on fighting perks.

    I know you're not stupid. It surprised me to see you write a stupid thing, I just want you to snap out of it

    Dunno if it's controversial. I just think you wrote a stupid thing

    Nah, I'm not going to pretend there is an adult conversation to be had about what I quoted in my previous post.

    I need to smack you over the head until the stupid falls out.

    I fit that description No, I haven't seen any of "us" campaign for first rate austerity. I wonder what posters you have in mind? There are posters of the history, eco and wargamer variety that have publicly asked for 1st rate limitation and exclusivity.
  12. Why do you think that is so? What factors drive the meta focus?

    Banished calls out from foul-mouth purgatory and claims that the above quote is misrepresentation of facts. See, @xDDDDDDDD? This is why I ask you to refrain from running headlong into the banhammer. Now my reputation is ruined! Everyone now knows I'm just your obedient forum sock-puppet. edit: ___________________________ Alt usage vs. eco vs. RvR is interesting, though... Everyone: "We need meaning, depth, rewards and reasons to do stuff, then it will work!" Also everyone: "I just bypassed all of the above with my alt."

    Patrol zone allowed teleport to all

    I would like that too. I also wish i had unlimited tows to the patrol zone freeport du jour. There is a voice in my head telling me this can't happen for reasons I don't fully understand. Remember that some people wish we didn't have patrol zones at all because the zones don't adhere to their idea of sandbox play.

    Any word?

    No, there was an announcement and following discussion here and in general OW forum. The above post is interpreted differently depending on the individual posters perspective and wishes. The people who were afraid of Legends taking over the player base let out a sigh of relief and called Legends "a failed concept", that argument still pops up every now and then when people want to impress on others how terrible pvp-on-demand is or pvp quality of life features are discussed. Nobody can dispute that player retention among existing NA owners in the closed beta testing of Legends dropped off dramatically. I never feared the player retention after wipes and open free to play release, but this is where mileages vary. I'd go as far a saying that it was almost impossible to keep up the numbers in the stage of testing Legends was in when the project was dropped. I think Legends would've worked great, most likely better than OW as far as concurrent player count is concerned, but I guess this element of fear and doubt took hold. Admin also said that they couldn't properly develop both titles simultaneously and had to drop Legends to focus fully on OW release. This statement gives me hope that the arena concept may be revisited at some later time, but we don't know and it's likely that question won't be answered for many months or years. NA is truly a fantastic thing whatever form it takes, but I can't help but think that the top tier fighting mechanics are wasted on an anal-retentive and timid player psychology that grows like fungus due to eco with it's inherent high time demand. Others think that's what's great about OW, so there we are...

    The Rock-Paper-Scissors of boarding.

    This? It was made from dev info and we haven't been told about any changes, so I assume it's still valid. Mods have changed quite a bit since then so I'm sure it can feel different depending on books and mods.
  17. Of course she did! She wants him to pump up those rookie numbers!
  18. Yes, so they tell me, so sorry.
  19. Same for me, but all is relative and I don't have time to play as much as I'd like. After the return to 2 min timers I've ditched the gank-zone and done proper OW hunting.

    Battles closing under watch

    This post is from the first major forum campaign to get timers that would enable smart OW PvP hunting. It's a short and good read with pictures an all. RAKERS and TDA were "bitter" enemies at the time but we stood together on this point along with most prominent players and forumites. @Prater's (Oh, brother! Where art thou?) illustrations and examples indicates that even if you see something in OW (like crossed swords) you can still be days away depending on ship and wind. So, I challenge your idea of "I can see so I should be able to enter" and how logical that is. Allow me to suggest that what you're experiencing is related to emotions and not logic. It's the same for everyone; OW time-warp leads us on and let's us down when logic (2 min wysiwyg timer compromise) denies us the fight. It happens to me too and even I get involuntarily frustrated. This is my weak point as I'm often tempted to ditch sensible OW mechanics in order to shoot at ships. However, since 2015 we've argued that (best compromise) wysiwyg OW mechanics will attract and retain the type of player that OW is made for. I'm a Legends and patrol zone guy so I sin against the true OW experience, but I hope I can atone by fighting alongside true OW players to save the Open World from devolving into one big king-of-the-hill patrol zone. If you're available for open ended conversation; I'm willing to test crossed swords visibility, measure distance, calculate OW time vs. instance time factoring in good wind and bad wind. Are you a true OW champion or are you corruptible, like me?

    I've thought about it. Big circle made it hard to not get bots inside the pull. I might've whined about that, I can get downright pissy about the PvP-griefing bots.

    Battles closing under watch

    Allow me to be non-combative but testy with you... I understand the frustration of coming up on closed battles. You want to fight or help your nation or friends, it's commendable. But by beating upwind in a slow ship and still being able to join any selected battle allows you to cheat on a carefully planned OW attack. You can see it, sure, but in a 1:1 time world you would've arrived well after the fight was concluded. That's not fair to the guys playing it smart. You would get a science fiction teleport into the fight. Consider your frustration towards closed battles you were too far from against the sensible OW/instance time and space break compromise that 2 min timers provide. Think of the wargamers, the "playing it smart" dudes and the careful OW hunters. Do you want smart OW play or do you prefer patrol zone-like arena mechanics? I'm not teasing, I'm dead serious. ___________________ I've forgotten @Vernon Merrill, what kind of whining made insta close RoE go bye-bye?
  23. How very forthcoming of him to make everyone aware.
  24. Been proposed many times. It's a good suggestion, I think. Won't happen until after release, if ever... most likely.
  25. I was about to say "it's neither here nor there for me, I'll take anything from nothing to gps with a shrug", but then I realise I want revenge ganks to be as hard as possible so I would actually vote for "nothing".
