Hello Everyone, Now that I have achieved the highest rank (1100 crew) on a pvp server, I thought I would voice my review, opinions, likes and dislikes of this game- what better place to review it then after you've seen pretty much all that it has to offer? I'll try to be short and concise and to the point and base it on known and current game mechanics Grind Time: I actually like this one, it took roughly 700 hours to achieve rear admiral, but it could of easily been 550-600 that's a pretty good number for time invested to reach the "top level" for $ invested in the game, worked out really nicely. Grind Mechanic: I was a bit let down by some of the higher end PVE Missions, I was hoping they would be a bit tougher, Rear admirals contain 2x third rates at the moment, I'd of liked to see 2x third rates and their companion fleet of smaller ships ( tops 7 ships) to force the player to involve in some social aspects the entire game is schooling you with these missions first from the removal of A.I fleet to the sudden jump from a frigate class ship to 2x constitutions or 1 third rate. (No solo fourth rate mission) Port capture: I'm glad to hear it is going to change, currently deep water ports can be taken by one person (if undefended) There is not much to add here until the admin have the port siege in its final form. OW PVP: Here is where I get hung up, right now almost every ship except the largest can achieve similar speeds, Having an alert eye knowledge of wind and ships can grant you almost total immunity to OW PVP I find PVP is too easy to avoid and or cheese in its current stance (Cheese as in manipulate game mechanics unintentionally) Holding battle screens, Reinforcement buttons, Logging off, Teleporting. And when you do catch someone on OW the 30s counter gives them quite some time to try and get out from under you so the battle starts at range, and you have to spend another 30 minutes chasing them down in battle Make OW (open world) PVP Faster, Remove the 30 second timer, or reduce it to 5 or 10 seconds. Adjust not just battle speeds but OW speeds as well 20 knots is excessive, if we need 20+ to achieve good playable travel times, shrink the map scale and speed up the in game day time Small and large battles: What is the point? if it is to teach people to pvp, limit it to levels, if it is to give access to instant combat, why? Shouldn't OW combat be that fulfilling and rich? Isn't catering to a need for instant queues admitting that OW PVP is lacking? Durability: Neat idea, but I'd make it tougher, have durability stop being a thing at the surprise from then on out it is only one durability, this will aid in keeping the ships of the line rare and help dwindle gold stock piles and push more people into crafting A lot of my suggestions have already been brought up by the Admin and are in development stages of ideas to fix them, I just wanted to add my two cents in case anything was missed, Over all, I enjoyed the game a fair bit, and enjoy the path it is headed for.
