    Change in Admiralty

    I would like a couple of changes in the admiralty. We have modules, books and PvP. This make little sence to me after we have removed PvP marks, unless Admin plan to put in special PvP reward later. Now you have modulers, where only upgrades are and books, where only books are. But of we look on PvP it is both upgrades and books. All cost today Dubloons. My sugestion in to remove PvP and put upgrades in module and book in books. Pro: Easier to find what you look for. New players will never be in doubt what they buy. Con: Can't realy see anyone. The other change I would like is put in a tab, where you can buy basic upgrades for reals. Pro: Those that hasen't enough Dubloons still have an easier acces to some upgrades. It remove some of the grind on AI's to still be able to some extend improve your ship, with out of give it the same benefit, as those that use crafted,- ore doubloon bought upgrades. Con: It might have an impact on how much you can take from crafted upgrades. It might also limited some players sailing in Ow. The first part just make more sence to me after patch 27. The second part is partly a bit selfish since I don't grind AI's and neither grind for Dubloons. That said I still think part will be a good thing for casual players and new players.
  2. I also get your point. It just anoyes me when ppl claim ppl only sail Lrq. It is basicly wrong. But sometimes ppl also have some fault in it. How many times dont we see traders with out cannons. A fleet of traderships with out an escort. Yes I know it dosent count for the new guys. But even in a small ship, if you learn to sail with the wind, learn to do a defensive tag, you would stay a better chance against the Lrq, even with a leg with elite pirates.

    Nassau right now. Think there only is 1 nation that can fill a Pb of the size of Nassau and challange the brits. But you are right when it comes to BR and ships the shallow could be an interesting place to be. Why not then. My guess most of those guys that could make it happens, just don’t play much right now. Those that are back of content maker, well my guess they see little value in 1 port. They win it in a fight, But what then. Nobody are going to try get it back.
  4. Well Le Reg isent the only ship you can sail on. Yes some choose to do so. I have only used mine in PB, witch I can’t anymore. A couple of times in Nassau when I just have needed the last damage. How many of the top PvP players have you seen on a Le Reguin? I would claim and pretty sure I am right. 9,5 of 10 times some body goes hunt in Dk-Ng waters it is on another ship than a LRG.

    A Slight Tweak to Contracts to Encourage Those Who Sail

    It will reward those that make RvR. The general idea of RvR guys is RvR are dead because of 2 reasons. - Port dosent matter. - To much AI grind to flip. Your idea will make ports matter. So plenty of RvR. If thats not enough, well lets bump Down hostillity to. Should give plenty of RvR. Thats the Pro. Is there a Con to the idea. Might make the game more unbalanced. But not sure it is bad. It is a hardcore game and better to reward those that make content, then those that dosent.

    I have faith in admin. He will see the light and make the change in a days work.

    Change in Admiralty

    Nope, not a redevelopment. Just put book under books and upgrades under moduls(Those under PvP tab.). They should still be bought for Dubloons. But I ask another tab where you can buy basic upgrades for reals. Soe basicly just move dubloons purchaes upgrades/books in PvP tab to the 2 other tabs. Rename PvP tab to "Real Upgrades"(Feel free to find a better name) and lest us buy basic upgrades there for Reals.

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    My remark has nothing to do with you fighting in your own time zone. It was a remark about Crissy couldn’t use his normal treat about Night flip because us are in the same time zone. Continue to win? What does that tell you? Well me it tells you only go find easy tragets. Witch The Us is. Try Kinky. Look at the top “Top EU time zone” they lose rather often actually. The time where Sweden seal clubbed the entire server is long done. But fair enough that Crissy need to Pick fights he is sure to win. Dont think his track record since the merge is impressive.

    No But do I need connies. I can always sail a basic cutter. They are for free. Do I actually need more.

    So only the clan hold the port get the ressources and can sell it. Do it do it. I don’t Belive it will change a bit. But just do it. Lest see if we get more pb’s from it. I doubt it. But if ppl are right. Just do it. Think the Idea is. RvR has purpos. More do RvR, gives more Ow PvP gives more work to crafters, witch then give more need for traders. Sound like a win win. Go ahead and do it. I havent played under such system, so can’t really say if it will work. But I just have to trusth ppl. I would have thought the strong would enjoy it. Those that cant get acces would simply give up and not even try. But what do I know? To make ports matter. Lets let the the clan decide what happens with the ressources. Lets only have 1 port on the Map for each important wood and parts for craft upgrades. Remove all upgrades that you can buy for Dbl. Now ports matter. Lets not waist oure time on boring hostillity NPC. Lets make it to 1/4 of what it is now. Lets make the ressources very rare. Lets say Wood, so you can build around 100 ships a week and upgrades maybe 25-30.

    Well first of all. The game is what it is. Somebody like the changes other dosent. Patch 27 killed the little interest I had in RvR. Last pb the danes had, I was asked to join. I refused. I am plain an simply not going to grind Dbl’s to build ships for Pb. That fine. It is my choise, so now I just play a bit on a 5 rate. Is there enough dbl in the game. I have no idea. I have now about 6k. So my guess I can build a 3 rate a month ore a 1 rate abouth every 2 month. Is the hostillity to boring. Some say yes and some say no. But we could easy test if easy pb gives more RVR. Just give the 2 biggest RvR clans in each nation a free pb a week. They can only use one a the time. There have to be 2 days between. Ports dont matter. Why not lets nations Capitol be capturable. You loose your reinforcement zone. And after a week you loose a port a day, if you have lost your Capitol. Think that would make Ports matter.

    I just poked a bit to Crissy, to get a bit if live in the tread. I have a long boring day ahead. So I can come here and get a couple of min of fun. Ps If he wants a pb, he need no reason than he wants a pb.

    Well what choise did Crissy boy have? He couldn’t treat you with night flips, he don’t fight the only guy with skill and players in the same timezone.

    Better Ships for All!

    The concers about financing maybe less abouth you ore more to others demand on removal of Dlc ships. When ppl demand something they react to a to something is wrong, they just often forget to look at the effect to. Ore atleast they only look at the effect thst suit them. I don’t Belive in fixing a wrong with another imo wrong, Witch your surgestion is for me atleast. I I don’t Belive there should be a bonus in battle just because it is a crafted ship. I said it many times that a Dlc also should be crafteble. So Thise that wont buy on also can have it. Neither do I belive it should be a bad ship. They should have there pris and cons, like all ships. It should be well balanced like all ships, You say they are better than a surprice and a cerb, But so is many ships right now, that are crafted.

    Better Ships for All!

    So because admin have said it, no more debate. Periode. Well no need to have any debate then I guess. But it is better in terms of upgrades, there is a higher chance, so in the long run over numbers of ships, it is actually better on upgrades. It is fine you think it should be so on every ship. I just allowe my self to have the opinion that there should not be an significant difference. Just a small one, so they have lived up to there promise. I put the other points up because if you read lots of the post in here ppl focus on crafting and econ to. There is also advantages by crafted ships witch ppl just ignore. Every ship have different stats, witch also can make it hard to decide if one ship is better than the other. It is fine you want to have crafted ships to have an advantage in battle. I just think a battle should be a battle no matter witch ship you bring. If the Dlc is op, they shoul in my opinion have stats so they fit the general class. Yes they can have some advantage in som areas and then some handicap in others. Just like crafted ships have. I just dont understand the demand for then to be sub to a crafted ship. It gives a better fight?

    Better Ships for All!

    Quit simple. As Dlc ships not should be better than crafted ships neither should it be in general the other way around. Basicly it is to pas judgment on one playstyle and say this is the right one and therefor those that prefere the other one is wrong. Crafted is allready better: - higher chance on extra slots. - No limited on how many to craft a day - No limit on the price if you want to sell it. - Can craft it and help a friend by handing it over. Crafted allready have a lot going for them.

    My next question is the one always seems to forgeten. Maybe I just are more of a realist than a dreamer. Why should ppl buy a Dlc ship if it is worse then other ships and I dont say it has to be better. Personally I think every Dlc ship also should be crafteble. And if ppl don’t buy the the Dlc, how are we to fund the game? I seriously doubt many online game only takes the cost price for the game and not more. Some can because they know ppl will by the next game in the series. I for sure can see things way worse than it is now. Think is they only had let one ship in each cladd be avaible and the rest you had to buy as a Dlc just to craft it. Personally I have a hard time see the Dlc is screwing everything of. They should not be better, But I don’t Understand why it should be punished either.

    Better Ships for All!

    @pit think admin have stated a crafted had about 3,5 bigger chance to get a an extra bonus. Wether it is much ore not, I can’t say because it depend on the actually chance. Is i 1-10 ore 1-1000.000. You idea have some merit, if we use the Dlc ship as the reason, should the extra crafting bonus then not be restricted to the same classes.?
  19. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    I know. But right now I dont spend anything on upgrades. Neither a Dlc ore a normaly ship when I go out alone. So bu his definition, I shouldn’t be allowed to do PvP. If I have looted an upgrade I use it. Thats all I do. Did earlier, but that didn’t cause any fear on that account. Yes I don’t Trow a ship away just to loose it. But that has nothing to do with Dlc ships. To get ship knowledge on my indiaman I took it to the swedish every day to pick a fight. Way more fun than grind AI. The only thing we get with fear is that ppl stay in habor and reinforcment zone. Luckely nobody ever have complained about that.
  20. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    Fear of loss. Well then I only should sail ships from 4 rate and up. And only because I don’t want to grind doublons. But even them I dont fear losing, Trust me it is a long time since I feared loose a ship. So guess I should stop playing PvP. But I agree with you, any Dlc ship should be crafteble, if thats your statement.
  21. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    Well not sure it is that easy to tell the effect on PvP. Ppl might have sailed other ships if not for the Dlc ships. But I am sure you could monitor an increase in plsyers comming back and play after the Dlc patch. Those playerd most like added an extra contribution to PvP.
  22. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    You are right your point is because of Dlc there are less PvP. The second opinion from you abouth pb’s how did the Dlc bring Down the numbers? Btw your right you didn’t say PvP was dead. But now where we are splitting words, where did I say they savef it?
  23. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    So you say the Dlc ship killed Pb’s and PvP? Must say I have a hard time to belive that Dlc killed the PB. I would have thought it was all the changes that came with the merge and clan implementing. But I will take your word for it. More ore less PvP. Well guess admin can proberbly find the numbers. Thefact is that the Dlc increased the avarage number of players in the game and must likely numbers playing. There is no sign that the numbers would have gone up, without the Dlc patch. My guess is that the more player the more PvP. But neither of us know what is right ore wrong without actually numbers.
  24. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    Well my guess is in the end, there would have been no players left without Dlc ships, except maybe 100-200. I rather have some fights, then non. But it is a fair point that only the right PvP matters. Rather play alone with a few guys and it is the right PvP.
  25. staun

    Better Ships for All!

    You are right on that point. If ppl wasent on Dlc ship, some will still have been on another ship and therefor there will have been other battles. But still not sure how much care ore upgrade ppl will spend on a shallow ship, unless it is for pb’s. But there is no doubt in my mind that they have kept player in the game and made more content.
