Well, "A date with Diana" is a great first event on our server(s). As someone who organized the first public event ever on Peace Server back in may 2019, I really endorse events in this game and there should be more of them. But diversity as always rules - we could contribute to the success of that principle if we had a powerful editor for setting up events of our own design. Of course this editor would have to be cheater-proof. Means, you don't store the result on your HDD but upload it to server as a "planned event" pretty much like scheduled port battle are planned ahead, and devs or a moderator could look into your event before it takes place to eliminate any fake content or cheating purposes, manipulated data or what else could happen... Data on server will be secure. Now what could be desirable for an Naval Action Event Editor (if it is DLC or not)? - different sorts of events - freedom as much as possible in planning - scheduling in time, according to availability of yourself and participants - rewards and who contributes to them (a) Sorts of Events - regattas, boat races over defined routes, following checkpoints - organized fleet battles, with parameters concerning number of players for each side and ship sizes. - durability test, like people having to face waves of enemy ships, measuring how long they survive and how many kills they can achieve meanwhile - silly fun happenings like having to fight a First Rate in tiny gunboats - achieving a score, like making the most money in trading over a defined time period, no matter with what merchandise, by buy + sell to ports. (b) Planning - user defines number of participants, classes of ships they are allowed to use, even what cannon type is allowed on them. Starting point on map or location of the event, a zone: a port to start from. (c) Scheduling - user enters time when event starts and time when it ends. Should always be a few days minimum in advance so people learn about it and can adjust their real life activities to attend, if they chose so. (d) - donations can be collected for the prizes given out after winner(s) are determined by the event, if any. Events can also be organized without any prizes. A neutral place to collect donations would be helpful to avoid cheating. Like you pay/give to "state clerk" who keeps an account of things for an event and administers the payoff according to given victory definitions.
1st rate challenge weekly event
Ameruccio Vespigo posted a topic in Support(PVE, Peace) Today before maintenance I tried to claim my reward for 1st rate weekly event, being 9th in the leaderboard. I tried several times since this morning (10:00 on GMT +2) until the warning of 15 min. left for server maintenance, when the "0 hours" was clearly displayed in the event window, but the "claim" button was always grey and clicking did not produce any effect. I assumed that the reward could indeed be claimed only after the maintenance, once the event leaderboard was finalized, but when I relogged after 12-13:00 daily maintenance there was just the possibility to accept the new weekly challenge and no trace of past event. At around 11:30 I also wrote in the help chat asking if some mates already succeeded in claiming their reward the previous week, with no answer due to lack of players online. Could you please help me in pointing out my eventual mistakes in the claiming procedure (whose conditions and terms are not very detailed in the game) in order no to repeat such failure or tell me if there was a bug that prevented me to claim the reward. Thank you.

z4ys posted a topic in Current Feature Improvement SuggestionsThe suggestion: Admiralty offers every player for the duration of a week 3 event vessels of 2 different rates ( rates and vessels are RNG but for all players the same) for free To Devs: Some time ago a rework of the Redeem function was announced, implementation could be achieved through a new tab like "Weekly Event redeem" Details: Every player receives 3 ships out of 2 different rates. The ships are equal for all players Wood,build-ins are determined by admiralty perma mods cant be equiped only certain books are allowed claimed or unclaimed ships get deleted after their event week to make room for the next 3 ships Those ships are called for example "Event Cerberus" (they cannot enter pbs, but have normal RoE and can be used in OW) They cannot be captured or used as fleet can not be traded Event ships have reduced pve reward in order to guide players towards pvp *edit* How outfitting with determined books could work: Pros: reducing fear of loss guide players to all kind of different ships they normally wouldnt use reducing fear of loss give access to ships even for casuals all players become competitive by giving them "equal equipment" skill matters Cons: Could be used to troll people because free ship - but kind of same like ow captured AI ships and quantity is limited to 3 each week for every account. /discuss

Bring back Chest Event
Aventador posted a topic in Current Feature Improvement SuggestionsThose events really spiked interest in the game on the weekends and got the server filled with people trying to go for the chests. Many people complained about them but if they did them throughout the weekend it would create great pvp and something to do.
PvP2 - Convoy attack Event
Elric posted a topic in National newsPvP2. Would anyone be interested in setting up a couple of battles with traders on one side (and a few escorts) against a fast raider fleet of 5th and 6th rates intent on capturing/sinking the traders? Using the PvP Deepwater Event or big battle missions, we could have battles where 4-5 LGV/Indiaman with 2-3 escorts are attacked by other small Frigates or smaller. I used broadside weight as a rough balancing number. BR doesn't really work with traders. For example an 8 v 8 event Merchantman - total of 873 broadside weight 1 Indiaman - 225 4 LGV - 90 1 Belle Poule - 180 2 Navy Brig - 54 Versus Raiders - total of 810 broadside weight 2 surprise - 150 2 renommee - 129 1 Niagara - 90 3 Rattlesnake - 54 To make it more interesting and to ensure balance, there will be two battles, the roles get reversed after the first battle. The merchant players and raiders reverse roles. It would be nice to get at least one player form each nation/republic/whatever the pirates are involved The crew numbers: Merchantman = 1,890 versus Raiders 1,475 - making it difficult for the raiders to board unless they kill lots of crew. If we use the PvP Event, there is already a reward for doing well. If we use the big battles, we'll have to come up with something we all contribute to. So... any interest?
Attention captains on PVP2 Server - Arranged PVP Events
Koltes posted a topic in National newsTo all captains of PVP2 server, PVP events are designed to bring people together and encourage fighting by providing rewards to top 10 captains on the list. As you all know our server is greatly suffers from loss of population. On top of that people do not show up to those events in fear to be ganged. The common believe will be that if I'm not surrounded by friends there is no way I could get a fair fight. Those few of us who come to PVP Events and wait for hours just to get one or two fights can confirm that the above is not the case. Knowing how hard it is to get a group together on PVP2 we have been arranging fair fights for a few days now. Therefore I would like to propose that all PVP events on PVP2 server will follow basic rules below: 1. Everyone shows up in the middle of the circle in their ship of choice no matter the numbers; 2. There shall be no ganging, chasing lone captains or any unprovoked attacks; 3. When people get in the middle they arrange fair fights whether 1on1 or team on team based on numbers and ships; 4. Players who break this rule and attack without arrangement shall be exposed by screenshots, shamed and hunted by others for the length of the event NOTE: Copy / Paste this post in Global during the PVP event so everyone who participates and those who wanting to give it a try will be on the same page. Thank you for your attention [BLACK] Koltes
The idea is: Spread "cards" or letters of credits or merchants credit around the OW (bottles) AND random in ports. When in sealed bottles the player already get its property (as LH); when in ports (at consumables tab- random too) it can be purchased. With the letter of credit in hands the sailor open it and there shows the instructions to Exchange it at random port. It can be exchanged for upgrades, LHs, paints, and so on...maybe can be put 3 kinds: small letter, médium letter or big letter. By the amount, the player can choose to get the risks and go to Exchange it or simple put it to sell to another one interested. That can be fun and can improve more trading and smuggling around OW.
Roche Brasiliano posted a topic in Current Feature Improvement SuggestionsThere is any chance to implement manilla galleons fleets when Pacific finally get open? Will be nice to try to intercept big and strong NPC fleets with lots of loots. Btw, why dont implement too the great spanish armadas (armada de barlovento, armada de guarda, armada de la carrera de las indias, armada de nuestra señora de guía)? Right now, the NPC traders just dont worth nothing. I know there is a huge effort to just get rid of NPC traders (and i really like the idea) but with the average pop of players it cant be done for a long time without break the game, because OW stills empty enough to do it.
