--Privateer-- posted a topic in Current Feature Improvement SuggestionsI'd like to see a player ranking system, not a daily ranking, a permanent list. I don't know how the rankings should work, that can be discussed. However, one important thing is it should be a ranking of player skill, not based on time spent. The daily pvp board is just total BR sunk, so that's obviously time based. Once there is an initial list of player ranks, people should be able to challenge those ranked above them, and if they win or the challenge goes unmet, they move up the rankings.
Ship History Idea.. Just an Idea
GRUENE posted a topic in Current Feature Improvement SuggestionsThis is just a lil idea. I don't know how much coding it would involve. But, just an idea. I would like to see and I think it would be cool, if the ships, when you look at the details, have some history for that particular ship. Such as, how many pvp kills it has, or what port battles it was victorious in. I think this would give the owner of the ship a little bit more pride in that ship and it could go a long way with the players. Just a though, Gruene
Hey there. From my first battles and hearing from other new players it seems that getting stuck in the wind is a common problem, especially after abandoning the Basic Cutter and moving to square rigged vessels - of course the best solution is adding tutorials with one for manual sailing, rewarding the player with XP and gold for completing the tutorial in the beggining of the game (like a mission). But there are other threads outlying that, and I've heard the developers are currently working on UI which would hopefully include tutorials. What I suggest is not a replacement for tutorials, but a reminder and easy way to help newbies to understand manual sailing in the middle of a battle if they didn't play the tutorial. When stuck in the wind there should be yellow text possibly flashing on the screen (NOT IN A BOX, that would block view) telling the player that he is stuck in the wind, and a quick explanation what keys to press to get out of thewind. Example: --- Captain - You are pointing your ship in the wind! Use manual sails to catch the wind again. Q / E - Move front sails right/left Z / C - Move back sails right/left To enable auto-sailing again press the F key For a more in-depth explanation please view our tutorial in port. --- I find this example too long in a battle myself, but I wouldn't know how to phrase it shorter. Maybe cut out the last part and have the State Clerk send the player a message after the battle saying "It seems you were stuck in the wind last battle - View the tutorial on this in the harbour to ..." This is, compared to adding tutorials, a quick fix and would definitely help in many situations with new players. NOTES: You only get this message when you are stuck and have 0 or minus speeds. You don't get this message when you've completed the tutorial so this doesn't annoy experienced players (more advanced) You don't get this message when being pushed into the wind and therefore being boarded.
