Im fan of pvp. I have done many small battles and I haven't lost one yet. In this thread I will explain how and some of the problems. -Less and less people are queueing up. It's easy to see why. - There are no rewards for risking ship === exp and gold is horrible. My best score was 4 kills and few assists, which rewarded me with horrible 320exp. This was after the patch that increased pvp exp. http://imgur.com/a/2kIF9 ^ Best battle so far. Everyone sunk and I almost lost dura as well. However In most of battles people just flee to not lose dura which makes rewards even waaay worse. In same amount of time I could have gotten 1000-2000exp from grinding AI fleets, which present waaay smaller risk -Most of ships are cutters, because risking a good ship isn't worth it! Also shooting cutters is frustrating. However, I have always taken my biggest ship, because > -Biggers ships are overpowered. I know decrewing is very effective against bigger ships. For example a single cutter can completely disable renomee, just by hogging her back. However this can be easily countered if teammates protect each others rear ends. This leaves smaller ships in very bad position. Side armors of bigger ships can't be taken out without substantial risks and back armor isn't enough to sink. Today I had 3 ships facing my Trincomalee. Brig, Suprise and cutter. My teammate was a Pickle. By the time they got 30% off my side armor (on 1 side), I had got all 3 sinking. Suprise and Brig managed to escape. I got 100 exp xD My suggestion is Further increase pvp rewards Fix br balancing. Exp rewards should be lifted from 0.5 to at least 2.0 There should be reward from ships that fleed the battle. (For example assist for everyone) There should be reward for winning team. For example 2x rewards + greater chance of obtaining mats and upgrades. Queuable battles not bound to 1 server. (Not sure if possible at this time) This way queueable battles could be as profittable as AI Fleet, with risk of losing durability. The only problem I see is that all the all the grind could be done from the port, which could make other areas desolated, same as what happened in wow. Few entrances to queuable battles could be set on high seas, which would encourage more sociable experience within and outside a nation...
