Ship wipe - coming soon!

Recommended Posts

Example - after a lot of months at sea in the surprise your surprise will surprise any fresh leda captain, if you lose that surprise you still know how to sail it well. 
I can see it now 400 people online 360 on auto Sail headed east at slowest speed to la la Land.  With a macro moving the mouse every 10 mins

I fear that will be a problem. I hope they find a solution to prevent that. Maybe giving XP only while player is in a battle instance with active enemies.

Will there be any refund for the ships that are taken away? My biggest fortune (which is small for you guys I reckon) currently is invested in ships, which basically means I lose pretty much everything I have. It would be kind of great if I could buy some ships after the wipe so I can actually keep playing without having to back to a Cutter.

It will also solve the problem of ships being less expensive than some upgrades.

All Ships become have 1 durabilty as it should have been from the start

Ship blueprints will not change significantly so you can and are encouraged to stockpile resources and materials for ship crafting after the wipe.

In 2016 the game has done the number of experiments and because of those experiments the amount of resources or wealth due to bugs or welfare for early access does not allow to tune the economy for the release state. It was known in advance and we have said before that assets will be wiped several times before the release.  We absolutely need to do this wipe to see if everything we learnt over last year will be applied successfully.

Wipes are impossible on release date, thus they have to be done now. Participants of the early access will be rewarded on release for all the pain.

I suggests a full wipe.

it will be the best update since the release of the armor, but it would be nice next time, the developers released "good running things" in Eve Online faster, and not a year after the open alpha)

Ned Loe orders his crew to open all gunports, run out the guns and hold fire while sharpening his butcher's knife and listening to his black flag flapping in the distance displaying a skeleton painted in human blood.

It's a new material i guess. You can buy it in the regions and then for example craft strong hul ships in your capital

Yeah - could be or could be something we have to build, it's not clear yet. Hopefully Devs will clarify soon.

I fully understand the wipe, but with the current inflation I can barely buy a single ship back after the wipe, which basically renders the game unplayable for me. It would be really nice to receive some kind of refund so I can at least buy a ship back that belongs to my rank. Even a small frigate costs 2 million nowadays. Also, am I still considered a participant of Early Access, even though I bought the game on Steam?

Would also be good to get clarity on whether there will be some sort of recompense (and what sort) for the ships and upgrades that are wiped. The sooner we get an answer the better, so that we know whether to hang on to them to get the compensation as the wipe or to break them up and/or fight them till they are lost before the  wipe. Even if the answer is that there will be no compensation, that's ok, we just need to know so we can deal with it.

Didn't they say to stockpile materials? This means:

1. Scrap ship for materials, so you can craft another one after wipe more easily. 

2. Don't scrap ship for materials and loose all. 

I think it's self explanatory. N1 is a requirement before the wipe. Scrap them all boys, they will be deleted soon. I wish there was a 'blowup' button for OS with nice fireworks. :)

But it is clear

So you need a OP and a shipyard in any port you want and you can craft any regional bonus you want in your shipyard

I stand corrected! :)

No need for port battles anymore I guess.

Post No. 1 sounds interesting - this may blow fresh wind in our sails!

As a PAINT addict, I MUST ask: will the NEW PAINTS, which are already announced, be added with this ship wipe?

(I cannot live without them much longer!)

They mentioned new figureheads, so I am sure new paint will be added as we go. I want to see new sail textures. From ugly to nice and clean. I think it's simple enough to implement.

Figureheads aren't meant in the literal sense, more figurative mods as seen in PotBS.  At least, this is my understanding based on the test bed.

So all the nice "gift" ships we all received will now be taken away?? :blink:

 

Will the "non-craftables" be craftable now with this patch?

I think there could be an alternative meaning to what the Devs have said. Would it do any harm to ask them to clarify? Probably not!

But....I stand corrected. Twice in one day, I must stop posting on this forum. :)

  1. All Ships become have 1 durabilty as it should have been from the start

I'm not sure what the above means.  Does this mean that all ships will be destroyed forever when they are sunk?  A ship captured is not available to the person who loses it?   Or can a ship be destroyed once or captured once and still respawn for it's owner?

Not trying to be obtuse. But the wording is confusing perhaps it is partly the wording "become have'.

If the ships are actually destroyed it would be great.  There were elaborate discussions about this when I first   started playing.  RamJB was a huge advocate.

Crafting needs be have purpose and deliver benefit and I can't see anything in the development thread that encourages us to invest in it:

  • I hate the inability to receive some blueprints through crafting effort
  • I like the ability to choose ship characteristics through crafting - regional bonuses and build choices plus the economic impact of these

Now it appears all ships all be created " almost the same" and we will be get even more "admiralty drops" or can "buy" refit options.
