I know that I'm gonna make somebody upset but here's my toughts:
NO safety should be provided to players in the pvp server apart the capital area.People do not quit the game because they got sunk in reinf zone,they quit because they do not want to learn this game,they quit because the game is hard,as it should be,they quit because this game simply is not for everyone.I am playing from 2015 and back then we had no safe zones,forts or magic ai reinforcements and yet here I am.Do you know why I am still here?Because I LIKE the game,i like the naval combat(there is nothing on the market comparable to NA ship combat)I like to improve myself facing the difficulties and not fleeing from them,using my brain to elaborate tactics and applying 'em.I've got sunk billion times when i started to play,even just outside the harbour, but i ve never complained,i took those battles as lessons and learnt how to play the hard way.
Everybody complains about nubs getting sunk and quitting the game but I'll tell you a secret:
Nubs will remain nubs because they already have too much protection and absolutely no reason to leave the reinf zones,they will learn nothing.Removing RZ will eventually make some nubs quit the game but some nubs,who actually like the game no matter how hard it is,will learn to play and finally enjoy it.
Ready for crucifixion.
