Idea: Bringing “Agony” to [PvP Carribbean] & NA-OW @admin @Ink @Hethwill This is the second and final expansion idea from the original idea Norfolk nNoob goes Gank-ing...! Here we’ll discuss the PvP portion after Norfolk nNoob completes the Stage Level Break on PvE. Part1 http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/25951-idea-norfolk-nnoob-goes-gank-ing/ Part2 http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/26076-idea-start-missions-and-storyline/ Part3 https://agony-unleashed.com/ https://forums.agony-unleashed.com/index.php?/forum/2-enrollment/ https://www.youtube.com/c/AgonyUnleashedPVP?reload= You’ll need a beer... Norfolk nNoob completed the 6 missions on PvE and has a PvE PC there which operates as a normal Character. He’s logged into [PvP Caribbean] using the same name under the GB Nation. He start’s in K/PR with 1x Brig 1x Trader Brig and 10,000 Currency. He has NO Rank or Craft Level. He’ll need to use the BASIC Cutter to start with having not enough crew to manage the other two ships. This is to give him a nudge to do the exams. A Message appears in PORT. Message_1 Welcome [Norfolk nNoob] to the GB Nation at Kingston/Port Royal. You may now take the sailing exams and the FINAL Exam. Passing the first 4 exams will grant you Rank 03 plus 3x “AGONY” Tour Papers.... Passing the final exam will grant two rare items. You may take them at any time. Practice on the PvE server with your PC there doing the tasks asked (they’re exactly the same). We strongly advise you to do these exams next, but it’s not compulsory. Good Luck and fair winds Captain... Norfolk reaches a Standard Level of Competence... Here Norfolk nNoob will be at a standard level of competence within the game after passing the four exams. A second message will appear for the EXAM PASS and The AGONY Tours Invite. This just explains what they are. So, you cannot get onto AGONY tour without successfully completing the exams. Message_2 Well done [Norfolk nNoob] you’ve passed all four exams. You are promoted to Rank xx. You will find in your redeemable folder 3x AGONY Tour Papers. You can try to complete the final exam now. This will promote you to XX and you will receive 2 unique gifts only viable from passing the FINAL EXAM. AGONY Tour Papers Each paper when used is an application to take part in the AGONY PvP Tour. This is to get you started into PvP-ing. Its open to anybody but a $20,000 levy is applied to each application. This is returned once the tour is completed. If you fail to turn up the money is forfeit. After using all 3 Papers, if you still want to continue on the Agony Tours, DLC Agony Papers can be purchased in the shop. Good Luck and fair winds Captain... What is an AGONY Tour...? (Please read Part1 for agony background and website) A Saturday Evening... A GamesLab staff member [GLM] like @Ink or @Hethwill or even @admin will take a large battle group of players x15 in basic unrated ships for a sail. Purposefully seeking out any player or player fleets of any size. Then to attack them. If you are sunk, you’ll automatically respawn back at the starter PORT with a new ship. The [GLM] will guide the group via in game group battle chat through the battles and also fighting himself. This is to get you into the mind set of fighting and getting sunk. Usual rules, first sunk drinks 3 shots of vodka, last man standing 2 lines of marching powder & a Disco Biscuit... Plus, you get to see and play with the Dev’s at first hand. This is much better than the normal restrictive FORUM format. How do I get on tour? You need $20,000 and an Agony Paper. Open the Paper and agree terms and conditions. At which $20,000 deposit is taken from you and a locked AGONY PORT will appear in your Outposts tab. After triggering the Paper Tour, you will receive a mail with a UTC time and date in which to be present at your own PORT. Example Saturday night 7:30pm. Nothing else is now required from you. In Norfolk nNoob’s OUTPOST tab the AGONY PORT on Saturday at 7:30pm will turn live. A mail reminder will also be sent. Norfolk nNoob just clicks the AGONY PORT. Transfer and BASE PORT... He will then be transferred to the BASE PORT. This could be anywhere the [GLM] chooses. Norfolk Noob for the Tour’s duration will be a Neutral Nation Player and NOT GB. At this point introductions will be made and you and Norfolk will be grouped up even if you are from different starting nations. Each person making sure all in group chat is all understood. This should be straight forward having done the earlier Co-Op missions on PvE. The [GLM] will give a quick brief on PORT exit, group sailing rules etc and where we are going. Departure time 8pm. My Ship... In the BASE PORT you will find 1x BASIC Ship. This could be a Pickle or a Brig maybe a Le Requin Xebec that @admin wants testing who knows. All gunned out with medium cannons and in the Hold the right ratio of Hull, Rig and Rum repairs. No Permeant mods what so ever. Your ship knowledge skills and Perks though will work. What type of Group PvP https://wiki.agony-unleashed.com/index.php/PVP_Classes If the AGONY tour becomes popular then different types of Tours could be offered. The above link shows the different types the original idea ran. For NA-OW we would start with the [PvP BASIC] covering Basic Fleet Maneuvering, PvP BASICs and Communications and recon procedure. Take it from there through popular demand. Use players such as @rediii for maybe an advanced fleet group, to maybe others wanting to learn the small group advanced Ganking skills. All driven by demand and DLC Paper Purchases. The First Roam, The First Contact, The First Gank… The [GLM] will then lead the group in a roam around the area hunting for players. First Contact will be fun. If Norfolk nNoob is sunk he will just respawn back at the BASE PORT. There will be another ship waiting. He then needs to catch up to where ever the fleet is. After first contact we may find some of us in the fleet are in need of repairs and such. With the FLEET having “Neutral” Status we can enter any PORT to recover. The Roam will only be for a couple of hours, but I think will give the new players more confidence. Plus, a very addictive adrenalin rush... Back to BASE... At the end of the tour we all return to BASE. In the OUTPOST tab will be an Agony return PORT and when hit it will return you back to PORT. Status back to GB and $20,000 returned. The [GLM] will close with a speech like... “Go home get your friends in a gang and go gank...” “You don’t need me...” The AGONY Tour Ends... AGONY Mechanic... Keep it simple and under lockdown. Use AGONY Papers to trigger the client link. All Players turning into Neutral Nation will make handling easier. Also, the Tour providing the Ship and content stops delays hassles and chancers. Re-spawning with a new ship should encourage some offensive maneuverers. The Junkie...? This is a very simple basic and formulaic system to take a brand-new player finishing with worthwhile PvP content. Starting with the PvE Ladder ends with 2x PC on each server doing the exams and final exam. At a measured basic level of competence. The Learning Curve and the Navel Action-Ego now allows our Rookie to develop dependence tendencies as he’s being allowed time to learn different skills like sailing and communication while not in fear to explore his open world. He’s more likely now to become a Junkie... Using the PvE server at first is the Key. He is 100% safe. Negates all the safe zone bollocks and over complication. From the first four tutorials through capturing the AI thief “Too Fingers, Too light Tony” with the first mission. All this in open world that takes Norfolk nNoob into a Pirate storyline mission that threads the player through all the different skill sets needed like navigation, exploring, crafting and trading to the final Co-Op mission... Norfolk nNoob plus mates must breakout of the PORT Siege held by the AI Pirates “The Black Seal Clubbers...” Then the Tier break allowing the PvP entry. Here the exams and final EXAM Message gives a perfect bridge from the PvE to PvP world. He’s not left high and dry. Finally, 3x Agony Tours run by the Guys that built this world... Norfolk nNoob is now at a measured level of competence after completing this short journey. He will still get sunk, he might never be [ELITE] but he is so much better prepared to take on [PvP Caribbean] with some real Naval Action... In-Closing... The [GML] input is vital as I stressed in the original post. In time yes, it can be farmed out but at first it must be them. These Saturday Night Romps I can see been an event drawing in both old and new players alike. The Old guys keep going on about the “Trafalgar...” play before my time but what if you heard @admin was running a fifteen strong Gank squad of Heavy Rattlers heading towards K/PR. You’d want to look... This will help build back up the community spirit and moral in our noobs. A Clan head simply cannot achieve the same effect. This idea born out of solving seal clubbing gives something much better to the whole game. Making a more formulaic starting structure helps give polish to the final product. And for a Junkie what's more appealing than a well-polished surface... Thank you for reading, and let me know what you think... Norfolk nChance [ELITE]
