Patch 9.93 - Bucentaure, acceleration rework and many other things

Recommended Posts

Awesome.  I do think that surrender should be available when you are sinking and on fire.  That is when you are supposed to surrender.

But it is too late then. You are on fire, you haul down your colors, your ship explodes and everyone dies. Surrender was pointless. You are sinking, you haul down your colors, ship goes under and everyone dies. Surrender was pointless.

That said, I would prefer a more nuanced mechanic, e.g. a combination of "freezing" leaks / fire after surrender to preserve prize for opponent, but also a longer surrender timer to make last second surrenders riskier.

Awesome! One important request from me and many other players - please, please for the love of Zeus remove that chicken shed from the back of Bucentaure ship. Such beautiful lines unbalanced by a not needed box on the back of such beautiful ship.

Everything I find on the internet (with minimal looking mind you, 10 or so minutes), has the shed.

Was hoping for a new frigate also :/ Moderators spoiled us showing them of i guess. As for the imbalance, theres already mods (best of which cost quite a penny) and the general fact that a high level players will be sailing in a super frigate or a line ship, so i doubt officers make that much of a difference :P

 

More advanced players well established already have more advantages and a nice collection of upgrades accumulated, then can use SOL's to grind quickly the 35K XP in PVE and get more advantages on the top of this, players starting or in frigates or 4th rate need way longer times to grind the officer, not counting in this the players learning and doing errors ending in getting ships sank and arriving at M&C or Post Cpt level with only a couple of officer life's remaining, those having it the easiest way in game get it even more easy with all advantages some of the perks gives and how easier it is to get XP using Sol's in pve risk free missions... not logical to favor the highest ranked players and create such imbalance from my point of view.

 

And can only hope the Santa Cecilia will be there but forgot on patch list like they done a few times, pilled up parts and LH contracts last weeks for this ship and want to make at least 2 of them , one live oak for fights one fir wood for chases, both with speed and possibly one in oak for both tasks , was going to get make me a few of those and use them for a while as they fit my gameplay :/

 

After all Admin on previous announcement said " + of course new ships." so there is hope .

Looking forward to most of it but what still could lead to discussions is:

1. still only one Officer - that means usage of perks is still limited,

2. crew cost is still at 500 - covered a bit by two officer perks (see 1.) and

3. Surrender not possible when sinking or burning

I like it except for the surrender mechanics. When shall one surrender? When is the damage high enough for not taking water (sinking), but short before? How shall I know that, sometimes I have still some armour left, but the water is coming in.

 

I would prefer to have it like it is now. To give the opponent the chance to save the ship, he should have to board after surrendering and repair the sinking ship in a given time (maybe 2min). That would give him the time to get the ship, if he takes some effort and stops fighting the remaining battle, but he has to send the crew to take the price and has to leave a price crew. If not, the ship shall sink and is gone.

Auto-escape functionality when connection problem : Yes !

 

Leaks tunned : Yes !

 

Interesting new perks, new sotl waterline, improved sails animations, i think i will like this update.

 

I'm just not sure about no surrender when sinking or burning, surrender when sinking or burning should auto set your crew to survival and be considered a kill for you opponent if your ship sink before he leave the battle (you still save your captain and crew).

 

Too bad just the Buc' being added but that's nothing. Keep on the good work!

could you please clarify if the Bucentaure is being dropped from any 3rd rate ship Bellona/ 3rd rate (bellona 74) or just from the bellona74?

Content patch: July (Work in Progress) 

  • Finalization of crew and officers
  • Testing of land in port battles
  • Finalization of accel and deceleration for vessels
  • XP for trading 

 

Finalization of crew and officers - YES

Testing of land in port battles - NOPE

Finalization of accel and deceleration for vessels - YES

XP for trading - NOPE

 

Honestly calling this a "content" patch is really stretching the definition of content.

Bucentaure isn't content?  I don't know what content is then.  How is xp for trading content?  It isn't.  Land in Port Battles takes time. 

 

Comments from #Seven is why most developers only give limited insight to their players.  But, thankfully, Game Labs is involved in the community.

Every time a cannon ball hits that shed a cloud of chicken feathers should erupt.

1. still only one Officer - that means usage of perks is still limited,

Isn't that a good thing? Your are forced to chose. Even addition of one more officer with no other changes (i.e. 10 points per officer) would create huge differences between players with and without officers, devaluing skill in what is supposed to be a skill-based game. It would also mean you get to stack things that currently (thankfully) cannot be stacked, e.g. Pirate (speed bonus) / pirate hunter (reload bonus) + master (speed / reload bonus).

If more officers are added, then they must draw from different perk pools, and have fewer perks per officer.

Land is being tested, but not live yet. Wait for testbed and you will be able to try it out. There are many things in development that devs keep in secret. Please don't get discouraged that easily. Development is moving.  :)

I already have a Bucentaure thank-you, what other examples of true content this month do you have to offer me?

 

What I quoted was slated for this month, and wasn't delivered.

 

Comments from Prater is why most developers never hear criticism on their forums from the vocal minority and the player base of their game continues to drop.

Before building a house you have to set up foundation. Devs picked the right time to set up foundation for many important things that later will take shape. We all know that many people are traveling or sailing during summer time and have less time to play. 95% of content was delivered on time.
