    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    Also I'm sure the cut off is that nothing above 9 pb frigates. Bell Poule could prob go in theere but it's a 12 pb frigate. Lets not get all carried away as there needs to be some type of balance. You just want the exxes cause it would wreck most of all those ships. Also all the ships being allowed in the shallows are 240 crew and below. So a new player that did the exam and Master Com could man all those frigates if he wanted.
  2. I call BS on this cause it's not like every game. I know a lot of games that either don't allow you to PvP at a certain level or have safe zones where you can't PvP. In fact most MMO's restrict the PvP zones to a very small part of the game while most of the rest of the game is for PvE. No one is asking to dumb down the game, just make it some these folks can enjoy there game too and they will stick around longer. Green zones should never be the main source of PvP for most players. We have 99% of the rest of the map for that. They should be where new players and casuals can grow and enjoy the game. I would prefer a game with 1000 players than a game with.....hold on let me check...164 right now..
  3. They don't need additional starting point they need safe zones that work to protect the casuals and noobs that don't want to be farmed. Safe zones should never be prime hunting grounds for guys that are to lazy to go find proper PvP. The other thing we have to many nations and if they merged US with GB the US coast could be made the GB second area so yes I have been avicating for things to be fixed along with many others. Devs can fix the issues by making the zones properly safe zones instead of as per @admin, "Free Gank Zones" as he once called them. Knowing that is all they are. Until these are fix we won't have our numbers back. And telling folks to go play on PvE is a cheese cop out for not wanting to fix a problem that needs to be fix.
  4. But your not still getting killed over and over? Some guys are and that all they know of this game. Is getting smashed by the capital gankers. NOt ever one is perfect elite expert Privateer Hetwill the Red. Until you guys live the shoes of most casuals you will never know how it is. Agian I known folks that have played this game for two years, never got a PvP kill but been killed hundreds of times. Those are the guys we need to keep around. You really should of came to a nation that is full of casuals and sail with some of these guys. Many of them still don't even know how to manual sale, but you expect them to jump up and learn and be as good as you. Not every one got the time or skill for that. Bet you if @admin let folks look up there data from this. It will tell a diffrent story about who is having fun and who isn't cause they can't just play the game and enjoy it without being gankd every time they go out. Lets see how many kills the high death side of the data gives you? There are many players that aren't having fun and we are loosing them over and over and they aren't coming back.
  5. You never see them fight each other cause they don't want good hard targets. The only folks that want that are the Duelest which aren't the same players. Those are the guys that want fair 1 vs 1 all the time. If you look at all those guys with really high kill count I bet you the very few times they died wasn't to another hard core vet. I still want to know the kill rate of the guys that got the hightest death rates. I'm going to bet @admin will never show us that side cause it show some guys been killed a 100 times before they killed any one, hell one of my clan mates didn't get his first kill until recently and he's been laying for a few years now, but I know I killed him prob a dozen times over on Global. The hard cores have to have the casuals or they won't h ave any one to kill, the casuals don't have to have the hard cores cause they have AI or other casuals to kill when they feel like it. Until you get killed over and over and never win cause a bunch of pricks are farming your capital...than you rage and quite. You know something I'm sure you never experienced We all want to have fun in this game, your fun is one way, other folks have fun doing other things, but if they aren't having fun they stop playing and player numbers go down.
  6. You know when they figure out 1000 casuals is much better tha. 100 hardcore guys it will be a great game. Removing safezones and making the game hardcore is not going to bring back the majority of players which was the 1000 players part of those numbers. The biggest problem is keeping new players but farming them to death will not do that. But hay what the hell we know we been playing this game for what now almost 3 years for me and I been on both sides the wolf and the sheep fighting.
  7. I like that they stay expensive but can you give folks something to do with VM other tha. Buy SOL permits. They aren’t worth much on the market cause you can use dabloons to buy them if you don’t get VM From port battles. Which falls back on the reward for RvR are not realy worth it. If somenone can buy them wit doubloons than let me sale them for doubloons too. That just gives the RvR guys anouther source of doubloons.

    Muskets need to go

    Remember the LRQ is still a 6th rate so it follows 6th rate musket rules (what that 50%) whole 5th rates get less (20% crew?). That is whey it is so more noticeable with the LRQ. Again it should be a 5th rate base off its crew count and balance of the mods. most mods need to be allowed to not be stacked too. Allow one mod and one ship knowledge only one that type. Obly allow on e of the three big books. You can have gunnery but now ship handleing or 5 rings. If you want 5 rings you can’t have art of ship handling or gunnery.
  9. I haven’t had that luck. I was actually doing this with an alt more trying to get repairs as I was grinding out a Cerberus and tagging ships I could take to get repairs off. I got some booze, cedar some rum, some sail repairs but no dabloons so far. Honestly RNG hates me.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    You do know the Gulf of Mexico is almost 50 % of the map.....and by giving up half the map they are giving up areas too. Again being selfish in stead of getting the devs to worry about one game you want it all to your self. While we are trying to give up half the map to make a better game for all. It would even give folks options to play both styles when they want to. Combining the servers has nothing to do with the RvR or PvP issues, it's called putting all our resources into one place to make it easier to make a better game, but you keep playing on your 100ish player server and all your empty neutral ports with no content......I love PvE just as much as I love the RvR/PvP side of the game, but for me and many others that just seems very boring being on a server with little to no content or goal. Actually good for pointing that out I didn't even notice that part and I don't remember it saying that before, but I could be wrong. Ok I was wrong about that time, though would love to still try to test that out. Let them have there dead broken contentless server but let those that want both worlds test out having a large PvE zone with two nations being the example (France and Spain would work great for this since they have second regions over there) and see how folks like it. Hell might get more players to come back simply cause they aren't forced to PvP and have the option.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    I would love a million dollars in RL but that doesn't mean I'll get it. The problem is we have a half ass server for them that gets little work on it. I would prefer to see one strong serve that caters to both type of players. You want to play PvE only you go play in the safe zones, many games are like this. You want to PvP/PvE you play on the rest of the server. Remember there was never a promise of a server just for them. The only resent promise has or almost expires (since they left it at 18-24 and we are at 21 months). Instead of paying for a server that has hardly 100 players on it they can take those resources and put in actual PvE content for all players alike. Sounds more like they are just being selfish and want the whole cake and not just happy with a slice of it. I'm all for more paints. I still got a few Kritimati mast in stock as I only used it to test it once. Makes you way to slow for what you get unless your into dueling. Poods you can buy if you know where to look, hell I bet you there are some sitting in a port right now that haven't been bough, right @SS Minnow?

    We want outlaw battles!

    As @Wraith mention all you have to do is join the fight and it's positional join. We wold do that to bring it into a fight on our terms. Near the end of Global some of the GB/US started to get smart and actually join these fights and found out they could trap us and actually started to win some of the fights. The biggest problem with the US/GB/DUTCH back than was that they would be to chicken shit to join the fights and actually FIGHT. That and bring frigates to a SOL fight half the time didn't help them either. You do understand that in half those fights you weren't figthting 20-25 guys. I never lied back than when I said you where only fighting 15-20 or later 10-15 guys. We where so multi boxing in half those battles that if you ever figured out who's alts was who ya'll could of used it against us. Hell half the port battles Simmon would go AFK to give his kid a bath....lol. Again I think like back than a lot of folks just don't understand FFA fights and how they work.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    I tagged the old post that @admin first brought it up. The map is so big there is no reason why it couldn't have been done other than folks complaining and it would allow them to work on one game content for it. They only made a promise to keep the server open 18-24 months too. 24 months is only three months away. So it wouldn't be breaking any promises they made to do this.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    Would actually be interesting to be honest, but to many folks will complain that they can't play the whole map and all the nations. I'll be all for it if they add in Barbary Pirates and I know what area I would be in.....lol You do know a PvE server was never actually promised, the only reason they open one is cause a some players asked for one in sea trials. You should be happy you get what you got. Though honestly I would of loved if they did the concept of turning the GoM into the PvE zone with French and Spain being the PvE/PvP nations and tall the others PvP. If you want to come play in the RvR/PvP part of the game all you have to do it sail over to that part of the map. If you want to be safe than you play in the PvE part of the map. Which has only basic rewards and such (only can get PvP/RvR rewards from the PvP side). That would put more players on one server and allow folks to keep there resources in once place. The only restriction is all ready taken care of as you have to sale your goods from one area to the other. Any of the special woods would of course be keep in the PvP side. If some one wants to make good money they can make trade runs between the zones and trade back and forth goods. Still think this was a good concept.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    Didn't even know PvE had a PvP Patrol Zone's? I mean isn't that the point of them to PvP not really PvE? Though honestly ya'll need more content. Yah should be allowed to have PB's with AI and have the map reset every 3-4 months. There is so much more they could do to help ya'll get more content.

    We want outlaw battles!

    And I thought it was funny folks said, "Pirates would just bully other clans around with it." We only used KOS twice on Global and one of them BLACK did not vote, all the other pirate clans Voted and we went with thier vote. Both clans that had KOS was US alts trying to stir the pot and cause trouble. Within 24 they left the nation and went back to US while there no trouble making clan mates melted into other clans. Again notice It was other nation alts causing the trouble.

    That was not the problem as @Wraith mention you can join at any time. The ABUSE came when National would bring out Pirate alts, tag other pirates and jump into the open battles with there National fleets. A lot of time doing this in the green zone around Mort since Pirates could tag each other in those zones. It wasn't pirates that abused it it was the other players. The other flaw to your pirate taging each other to avoid fights. FFA was positional join. They couldn't escape if you just pop in and than tell every one where they are and have them positionally join. Believe me know we loved this factor as it allowed us to better get back at these trouble makers when we could.
  18. A lot of those casuals are tired of the tanking and farming by vets. Many others just want to wait for game release. Those elites aren’t going any where while they are on top they are going to stay and keep doing what they do. Honestly most of them aren’t that great when you get them alone and away from the gank squad. And I agree they need to stop changing directions. If they work on getting numbers back and making the majority happy the numbers will be therr. And the shark/elite will have therr fun. If the casuals arentbhaving fun they will leave and that is who makes ion 90% of the game.
  19. I’m going from a guy that didn’t work for two years (why my hours 9k in game and post count so high) to working all the time. Right now I have so much stuff stocked up other than dabloon but so does most players. As much as it pains folks I’m ready for a wipe to be honest even if we go to beta stage to finish things up before release. Cause we need to test things on a clean slate before release.
  20. I don’t think that is the general view, maybe view of some. Why should we cater to 100 players when it’s the 1900 we want to stay around. Server pretty dead with 100. It would be much more fun with 1900 instead. The Division tried this to make elitist happy and pretty much killed the game and we are talking about a AAA game company. They had to go back to late and tweet the game for the average players over all. It was to late as the damage was done. They said they learned from this and won’t do it with The Division2. I’m going have to do some SOL hunting with my Christian as in the past o got crappy loot from SOL. Basic mods and one time 198 doubloons off a Santi. Need to open some slots on it after all;)
  21. It’s 6k for the level 3 but the problem I know in the past is a lot of folks don’t want to depend on a clan to build so they make there own. Some clans have more than one. I currently have 3 level but one I can dump. 3 level 2 but only one I’m realy using to get my last char crafting up to 50. I do t see a problem with the shipyard price as you realy only need the level 2 and Thant just 1k doubloons. Which isn’t hard to get. Not every one has to build first rates and with it costing more gives more reason to have just a few guys specialize in them and that it. can we get it where we can convert VM to doubloons. We can buy VM with doubloons which isn’t far for the RvR guys that they can’t be converted back. That or don’t allow folks to buy them so they would be a market for them. Right now there realy isn’t a market for VM.
  22. But this is the plan for first of the year post and we are a bit off topic.
  23. See your putting words in my mouth. I said you prob don’t PVP much and I worded it as a question not a statement of your actions. Simply cause I don’t know how much you do or don’t do. Again you stated I should use my VM to build ships, they are only used in. Building SOL’s. so that would mean I should build them and go fight in them. As for market of VM to real to doubloons I would have to look that up but back to the topic I stated we should be able to turn them in for doubloons. You can buy 1 VM for 1000 doubloons. So why shouldn’t we trade them back for the same? If I would them for reals and bought doubloons with my reward I would loose money and it means VM and RvR is pointless as the only reward other than owning the port has useless rewards. I take it your against it cause you don’t RvR or gain VM?
  24. You the last post. What else would you build with VM?
  25. I have about half a dozen first rates. About a dozen Bellonas. 5 chars with three of them with 27 dock space loaded up. I have a job and work so I can’t be on all the time to fight. Oh and I’m sitting on over 200 VM as my clan at one time owned 10 ports. Believe me I’m no where near where other players are. When we had Marsh Harbour port battle I gave out over a dozen H Rattlers with cannons and some where purple. I can make anouther dozen 1St rates of it wasn’t for the doubloons needed. Why would I go out solo in a 1st rate like a noob to just loose it? That the most regarded thing I ever heard. I take it you don’t PvP much? Most of it is done in 5th and 4th rates not SOL. right now what holds folks back from making SOL is not VM it’s doubloons and they aren’t cheap so folks aren’t using them. I take it you don’t go fight in them either or craft them?
