New regional refits

Recommended Posts

1. Build outposts in the the only 1-3 ports on the map that have the special regional bonus blueprint ingredients.

2. Collect exploit cash in your zerg clan.

3. Put ridiculous buy contracts on the item that is never in stock and only resupplies 1-2 per day for a tiny amount.

4. Profit??? and Monopoly on the refit

I like this new system...

 

First i thought everyone could access all upgrades with some effort in this new upgrade/refit system.... oh boy was i wrong... You want competitive PvP without playing the carebear game for weeks on end? Well, hello kitty you, mate. Can only hope the new arena game does better than this.

But meanwhile lets find more ways to put casuals and those in smaller clans at a disadvantage to drive them off the game harder, please.

Why the ability to monopolize trade of certain items is bad for a player driven sandbox game?

yes it is because you want other players outside of the great trade cartels playing to ... if they realize they are only there to amuse the big ones they will leave and have enough ...

Because it puts people who can not afford the refits at a disadvantage and looking at the significant buffs a big disadvantage... It's a make the rich richer and the poor poorer mentality that can never be healthy and much less so for a game. You already made upgrades like "copper plating" which is essential for a good pvp ship a RNG drop which i really dislike, but at least everyone has the same chances here and sinking more ships gives you higher chances to get the drop = effort is rewarded. I like where you are taking the game and many changes are awesome, but please make it managable to build a competitve PvP ship for everyone ( NOT a SOL but a small frigate everyone should be able to kit out with upgrades and refit with a bit of grinding ) Thank you for your effort and answer. Please consider what i have stated...

This sums it up pretty well, actually. It's a common practice to make free2play players content for the premium players in pay2win games. But for NA everyone paid 40 bucks for it ( the game is worth every cent of course but thats not the point here). EA or not you need every player you can get and while i like the game and enjoy it more since the 10.00 patch than ever ... be very mindful about catering to all types of players as much as possible without taking away from the experience of the game( hardcore, casual, lonewolf etc. ).

I am a sandbox gamer MMO PVP gamer, I like the current patch, I like it a lot.  Yes it needs some tweaking but it is by far the best patch they have had since I have been here.

And I bought the game on sale, so only 20bucks for me. :P

So you're basically agreeing completely?

I, for my point, don't like random drops. make the resources availeble for anyone for cash. If you mostly want to trade but you need a fast ship to escapeif getting attacked and don't want to grind pve for some random drops why are you forced to do so?

Yeah you can say that simply buy it if same player will sell it by contract. but maybe that what you are looking for isn't availeble for weeks. 

so the way you earn these upgrades is up to you and not forced by game mechanics. aswell i don't like the pve/pvp/ conquestmark system out of the same reasons because it forces you to a playstile you might not like.

Case in point. It's even worse than before. You used to be able to buy all upgrades from other players for big $$$ but not anymore, thanks to this new system...
