Idea: Start Missions and Storyline... Inspired by @Wind http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/26065-naval-action-needs-a-good-story/ This is an expanded idea from Norfolk nNoob goes Gank-ing...! http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/25951-idea-norfolk-nnoob-goes-gank-ing/?tab=comments#comment-553556 Give this a quick read first. Containment of storyline... The idea of a storyline is to contain the alternatives and “what if’s” as much as possible while still having the effect of an Open World environment. For the Brand-new player logging on His only option is Player Character [PC] name... In our case Norfolk nNoob. Starting on the [PvE Enviroment] at La Navasse without a Nation as “Neutral”. In PvE there is no PvP of any kind so Nation status can be sidelined at first. The tutorial and mission storyline are NOT voluntary, but must be easy, friendly and draw the player in. The first Message Pops up... Message_1: “Hello Norfolk nNoob...” “Welcome [Norfolk nNoob], before letting you loose on the God-fearing Populace of the Caribbean you need to complete some basic skills of sailing. Please Complete Tutorials 1 to 4. They maybe done multiple times for practice...” Here the first four missions are a closed environment in a Brig. All well and good, when the fourth tutorial is completed successfully a second message appears. Also, the Brig is now in his ship selection with cannons and repairs in the hold that were taken... Message_2: “Capture the theif “Too Fingers Too Light Tony...” “[Norfolk nNoob] we have a problem, the scoundrel thief “Tony” has stolen some “Madagascar Jewels” from the Governors daughter (maybe her virtue too) in La Navasse stealing a trader brig as a getaway. Can you go race after him? Capture and return both the ship and jewels? The Governor would be in your debt. You will need to open PERKs left side PORT UI and select “FLEET CONTROL” using your 1 point. This will allow you to control both your Brig and the Trader Brig to bring both home. (All other choices are locked.) He was last seen travelling North West to Portillo...” OK a special AI T-Brig spawns “Too Fingers Too Light Tony...” along the area no other PC can tag it. PC captures the brig finds the jewels and needs to allocate crew to bring both ships back. He’s given the T-Brig as a reward and some cash but not the jewels. Complication Opens the next level... These missions continue which uncover trading, ship skills and crafting mechanic missions that then go to help solve that particular mission. The PC must complete the mission successfully in order for him to open the next level. Failure will see the mission respawn till complete. Later Missions... Later missions as I’ve said before start to involve Co-op with other players (it’s an MMO). This is open for any other PvE player to help out but must be in the same BASIC ships. These Co-Op missions involve the PC integrating and using his community for HELP and assistance. Setting up Team groups, PvE global chat and in group chat... Suggest a form of strategy to use against the AI objective to encourage team work. The Last Mission... This one Involves La Navasse under siege by Pirates. Norfolk nNoob and his friends must go out and break the siege together... Level Stage Break... After this last mission is completed Norfolk nNoob will be asked to relog into the game. This time he’ll have the choice to create PCs on the [PvP Carribbean] and [PvE Enviormrnt]. Then as now he’ll be asked to fill out Nation choice and a new PC name is desired. When Norfolk nNoob now logs into PvP he’ll spawn to his Capital of choice. He’ll have two ships 1x fighter Brig and 1x Trader Brig plus 10,000 equivalent currency. He doesn’t start from scratch. A message pops up offering him to take the “EXAMS” and “Final Exam” with what rewards they offer. If he then relogs into the PvE server same again new PC load up with exam options and starter pack. Exactly the same and can play both... And finally giving “Application Papers...” to join “AGONY” tours in PvP only... Closing... If we imagine just 8 to 10 missions that can cover all aspects of NA-Open World. Crafted into One Storyline that gets Norfolk nNoob immersed into the game with others. Using PvE as the Ladder is ideal giving 100% total protection. This bypassing all Safe Zone overlay reworks. This I think would help turn our Noob into a Junkie. But it would need a good storyline to keep interest and not too long... Once again thank you for taking the time to read it and as always do your worst below... Norfolk nChance[ELITE]
So lets start by going through the numbers. a Privateer cost you about 11K without cannons. You need 12 cannons for a Privateer and 6pds are at 2496 a pop for a total of 29,952. Your total cost to outfit a Privateer is 40,952. Basic midshipman missions nets you 1K for the mission and about 3K for sinking the ship. Total of 4k coin a mission and around 100 exp. So it would take you about 11 midshipma's missions to get into a Privateer. Based on these numbers the grind may be a bit steep for some players while others may have no problem with it. What about the noobs, a new player who has no info on this game would have to spend hours in game before even thinking about attaining the next ship. In addition they should have leveled their rank up 1.5 to 2 time before they can buy a new ship. We all understand that the econ will take some time to get rolling and having players run around with hundreds of millions of coins is not a good idea. So what suggestions do you have to ensure Noobs are not turned off be the grind?
