Preliminary discussion of the changes to conquest - clan wars are coming

It is a bad economy if riskless trade brings the same amount of profit than risky trade. Why should I risk to sail to La Orchila to buy Dutch trade goods, when I can flood the Swedish capital with French trade goods from La Desirade?

I can do a risk-free trade run from La Desirade with some friends, 6 Indiamen and some frigates as guards, built a battlegroup, nobody can tag us. Gives millions of profits.

Of course, missions are profitable as well. Or crafting can be profitable as well. Usually players do a mixture of everything, wich is okay. But the amount of time needed to fund PVP is rediculous. This is the real time sink.

If I waste two hours chasing others in OW PVP, I am dissapointed, but that is okay. If I have to waste two hours for trading/missions to replace my losses from PVP, I am deeply annoyed. That is the difference here.

I don't see it. I'm at LD right now with a shop price list of Gustavia to cross check.


Fine Fabrics is 100g per unit, weighs 15t, so 7g per ton. That's 28k profit for a full indiaman.

Sevres is 41k, buys for 22k, you can fit  9 in an indiaman, that's a 171k profit per indiaman

Normandy Cider is 107g per unit, 9.6t per unit so 11g per ton. 44k per indiaman.
Languedoc Violins aren't listed in the Gustavia shop, supposedly sells for 5.3k, so 2600 per unit, 43g per ton, 173k per indiaman.
Parisian Furniture - only 1 available, so there's that, buy for 159k, sell for 379k, 220k profit for a 1000t item - 220g per ton.

For that, you sail empty to Les Des for 45 minutes, (because they pay less for Swedish goods than you buy them for in Gustavia, which I have to say is a really *bad* part of the economy, and then you sail back for an hour (your ships are slower now) This is really only worth it if you bring multiple indiamen for this trip, and therefore cripple your account on captain perks.

If you want to make millions of profit, that's at least 8 indiaman you need to fill. And then you spread that across how many players? How much money and combat marks and experience can you make in that time if you just shoot 4th rate fleet missions instead.

reminds me a lot of Elite Dangerous trading. Because the limit is not the quantity of goods available, all that matters is the size of your cargo hold, and trading before a Type 7 or Imperial Clipper is just a huge waste of time. It seems slightly  better simply because of the limit on Parisian Furniture.  Frontier, take notes. lol

Suggestion for Port Battles.

A year or so ago, before the county changes and major PB system changes, we had flags which although exploited were a fun system that provided a lot of pvp and screening opportunities making the battle enjoyable for many.  The abuses of the system were numerous and well documented driving the changes.

As we enter this new system I propose a combination of flags and conquest.

Here goes;

Use the current conquest system to grind contention to 100%.

At that point, in 22 hours (as it is today) for a window of two hours a flag can be pulled from any national port of the attacker.  However, unlike the previous version, the flag can ONLY be pulled by someone in the top 10 in contention points.  Meaning that the individual pulling the flag had to participate, and not in some minor fashion, in the contention grinding.

The individual who pulls the flag is then designated as the Fleet Commander for the PB and that individual designates (after the flag has been planted) which Captains can enter the Port Battle beyond those with the minimum amount of Contention points (ie, those who would have to wait the two minutes).  This identification system achieves the goal of rewarding those who grind contention but also eliminates ALTS from attending the PB unless they are "invited" to attend by the Fleet Commander.

Just a barebones concept but enough to get feedback and thoughts.

very very just. except the entire effect it has on the systems, local faction influence and reputation, other than your pocket :) and having AI security and pirates actually providing a interesting threat, if not real at times. plus nothing like running the gauntlet smuggling arms in a conflict area.

I get your point.

Thing is that (1) yes there are guys that have multiple indiamans.

(2) you can do this while being more or less AFK, so reading a book, watching a TV series or whatever. You cannot do this while grinding missions.

(3) There are of course even more profitable ways of making money through trade, which however involve crafting (e.g. selling muskets to NPCs). As Labour Hours are restricted, I do not want to include these ways into my argumentation.

(4) Your point even enhances my point that fixed prices are bad. Why should you be able to constantly make more profits selling Parisian Furniture? Why should be price in Gustavia not change if everyone delivers Parisian Furniture, but noone delivers Fine Fabics or Normandy Cider?

So the point is not about the amount of money you can make, but (1) that you can make it quite riskless if you are clever and (2) that the economy does not work well with fixed prices and fixed supply and demand for everything except the player-based ressources.

I think this is the most common reason we bleed players.

Many of you here love the economy, the depth, the meaning of it all, the thrill of risking loss. I know and respect that it is your raison d'être.

It puzzles me, though, that you expect OW PvP to PvE ratios to be better than in EVE.

IMHO placing start location at national capital big trading and shipbuilding center is not helping to populate game with new players. New players have to first get used to the game, grind ranks and explore the game content. If one cannot rank up and learn on PvE server and than migrate on PvP server, there has to be separated protected areas. Players should be able to understand where to sail to find certain type of gameplay. They should be not afraid of unexpected changes happening when they don´t play for few days. Progress in this game is slow so players are very sensitive when they loose game progress. Unprotected zone means higher risk because of unpredictable human opponents.  So PvP should offer rare resources and provide loot that cannot be acquired in safe PvE areas, to balance that.

That s why I suggested a neutral faction for new players with a few non capturable neutral ports. To allow them discover the game mechs and early levelling  safe from national pvpers and rvr. But still possible pvp vs pirates m. And then switching to a nation via joining clan: reduce grief via alt problem+ blind nation choice.

I proposed this already earlier. Let new players start as neutral, not attackable by national players and let them sail trade and gain xp by missions. When they have settled in, and wanna have some outposts & shipyard then they must decicde for one specific nation where they stay. Beforehand they can easily scan the map, sail out to all capitals and then stay where they want to. National player can advertise their nation in neutral chat. "Hey newbie, wanna join the swedes? We are nice small nation around gustavia and we help all new players. Been to gustavia already? Just visit us and see ......." Very easy and very promising I think

You mean start as neutrals and cannot interact in any way with other "factions" ? Live a true PvE layer until rank 4 ?

Why would you change or deprive a whole group of players with a completely different play style of their server?

It isnt denying them anything.  They can still play the game, and it would still be there.  It just wont be as big.  They will still have access to around 30%-40% of the ships in game.  If the developers arent going to be bothered to have aggressive AI on that server why bother with it outside of making it a training server.

Pirates were supposed to be the hardcore mode, in the facts they always were and still are the easiest faction in game

WTF? Can you elaborate on this please? Give me 1 thing that makes it any easier to play a Pirate? Just ONE thing that made it "always" and "still is" and easiest nation in the game.
The ONLY thing that national dont get of what pirates have is Green on Green. Does this somehow makes us more powerful? Would you like to have Green on Green in your nation too?
I certainly would welcome that idea!! I can hunt you then with the same flag as yours and at the same time benefit of being in the large nation. If anything GnG makes it harder for us.

Do we get same player intake when new people coming to the game?.. Nope, no one turns pirate when they start. Its usually US or GB that they choose naturally.
Do we get same access to BPs?.. Nope. We have to smuggle them from nations.
Do we get access to stronger builds than nationals?.. Nope
Do we get access to bigger ships than nationals?.. Nope
Do our ships sail faster and guns shoot further?.. Nope
Even the Pirate perk we had was accessible to everyone.
And don't even let me get started on the alliances that we used to have while pirates could not ally.

So yeah. Please explain exactly what you mean. I want to know how am I in advantage being a pirate?

If a large organized group want to make big profit they need to bring slow trader ships with big hull and an escort. The opposite could try to capture them even with lower numbers but more battleships. Maybe it is also a good idea to craft items to bring there, wich are needed to craft the trade goods. Those item carriers would be an intersting startegic target. The whole big organized fleet craft their items and starts sailing back. Sometimes they are disrupted by the several fights. This is the time for the smaller groups and lone players. Either to sneak to the craft spot and craft goods for themselves or attacking the smaller parts from the former big organized fleet.

"only give profits for privateers and organized large pvp groups". A big organized fleet would always try fight for the biggest profit spot. If there are some other lower profit spots, maybe there is the chance for smaller groups or lone players. But all spots should be close together to create a bigger pvp area. Or maybe use shallows to create sneaky ways for smaller trader and lone players a big fleet would not sail trough.

 

 

I agree. Traders needs to be SLOW and sluggish. Have larger cargo capacity. They can take the risk. If they succeed they will make more than before. If they get caught they cant run away. The slower traders will get, the faster they will learn to organize trade caravans with an escort. Bigger their hold will be, more affordable it will be for them to pay for escort.

In EVE Online hauling ships are sluggish and an easy prey. Yet items gets delivered somehow. Its player made content. I used to even play as an escort for some time my self.

That's a BS argument. Outlaw battle opens for full duration. Nationals can achieve exact same thing by attacking AI fleet and the battle will close in 3 minute.
Do you have any other real arguments? Question was HOW am I in advantage? Even in this example using Outlaw battle does not give ANY advantage. In fact it puts us in disadvantage in comparison.

"Largest nation because of reasons" means what exactly? First of all we are not largest nation. We are nation that have largest veterans base. We didnt get them because we are pirates. If BLACK were Spanish we would do exact same thing as a Spain. When I was recruiting I personally went around the server and cherry picked players who had the right attitude. This effort took months. How being a pirate helped me to do that? You are mixing up player's efforts and the game play. Whatever advantages we have now as pirates was hard earned by my clan. We were given nothing for free. Nothing that you didn't have

It's not the economy, its the cost of things.  There wasn't enough reduction in blue print required resources when durabilities were reduced to 1.  And, on top of it, we now have million dollar modules.  2 hours to replace a 5 durability ship...that might be acceptable.  2 hours to replace a 1 durability Surprise, that is unacceptable.

Not all haulers in EVE are slow and sluggish.  There are specific ones that are designed as blockade runners.  

Traders in game dont need to be slow.   Trader ships in game need to be the same base speed as their non-trader counterparts.  The cargo slows them down enough.  

It makes ZERO logical sense for a Trader Snow to go 10.9kn while a Snow goes 12.95kn base.   Why is the Trader Snow 2 knots slower when empty?   Is it because it has half to crew... oh that cant be it, because that is for cargo space.... can it be because it has thinner masts.... nope that is for cargo space too....

You all have been saying this a lot lately.  And I highly doubt that would be true.  If BLACK was Spanish you would be frustrated and limited.  God help you if you were US and tried to deal with clans that dont want to work with you because of what ever reason they have.   You wouldnt be able to exact a revenge on them and beat them into line by tagging them and attacking them.   Well you could but that would result in a lot of tribunals.

Hodo, I dont care, what flag I carry and how many clans are there in US. If we were to bring BLACK to US we would NEVER EVER rely on their clans. If they come and do something good. If not, who cares. This is how it always was in Pirates. Mort rats where always doing their own thing. BLACK did their own.
You just fail to see that its ONE clan that is beating you. Not the nation. No matter where you take this clan the results will be the same

I'm ignorant in the ways and rules of the game, but are there things the nationals can do and the Pirates cannot and vice versa . I know outlaw battle is something they can do , are there others ? I don't mean things that can be easily sorted with alts ..

 

People often bring up, we're or you're the biggest Nation, but do we know this for a fact or are we portraying our perception as fact when it's not entirely true ?

 

Seems to be a lot of facts churned out which are only opinions , not helpful for  a reasonable debate

Funny didnt seem that way at PaP a few weeks ago.   Let me see... BLOOD, BLACK, HYDRA, GS6, and a few others.  Sounds like more than ONE, UNO, EIN clan.

Pirates have the one thing you listed and one unintended feature.  

The outlaw battle mechanic is a way for the stronger larger clans to enforce their will on the smaller less powerful clans.  Which BLACK has done.  

The unintended mechanic is they can use this outlaw battle mechanic can be used to attack NPC Pirate fleets in a region that is under threat to greatly prolong hostility grinds.

I keep hearing this argument but still don't believe it.

Is there any veteran who is not doing PvP because he can't afford to? He has lost too much and no longer has the time to build more ships?

How many people quit playing and still had 3-4 perfectly good ships sitting in dock? I don't think affordability has ever been the problem, at least not for OW PvP.

i firmly believe it's to do with people being lazy and wanting a backup ship for their backup ship and on and on and being unprepared to put any skin in the game

Nothing that you didn't have

Pirates since day one were advantaged in game, yes your ships used to sail faster, not anymore indeed,  yes you still have a dedicated ship completely outclassing what the Nationals have as equivalent at them disposal, in terms of performances of BR and xp knowledge needed compared to what comes the closest an Essex completely nerfed and getting a stupid BR and XP requirement for slots while butchered by the Dev's to not be able to tack against the wind , yes you are the single faction in game able to grow up when crushing a Nation, Nationals leaving go for the most part to pirates no matter what you try to pretend, yes you have now green on green and this is an advantage, beside making blind by sending him into a battle or simply killing a potential spy like no other Nation can do, ( or a big clan imposing his views on others by making the powder burn inside a faction ) and yes they can use the outlaw battles at will, where they want, when they want, no Nation can do this, there is no way to reunite a fleet and jump into the battle to catch them as they will have just sail away and be uncatchable, and even worse when they start the outlaw barely 30mn before the server shutdown for maintenance getting an immunity ticket allowed by the Dev's and able to log back many hours after the server restart in time for the operations planned... But heh apparently it's fine if pirates do this according to dev's tribunal, yet only pirates can do it that easily in game...

You don't have the BP's for SOL's ... yeah but what masquerade is this when the Dev's at the same time don't hard code any restriction in game to enforce this ??? oh yeah ... alt accounts are a nice income i guess ...  Bp's just are like any other book or upgrade on the market, a mercantile good that pirates can get either for cash or just from them alt accounts or alt clans ... when it's not entire clans working on other Nations to craft & buy ships of National markets and provide them directly, this is the reality of how things are done...

880734pi2.gif

In the end it's easier and less risky to get BP's and permits than getting the best woods to craft a ship... what an impressive restriction ... not.



Pirates never acted as anything else than a regular Nation in this game, nor despites the green on green they attack themselves often, do they ?... and this even used to be punished by other pirates if one guy or one clan decided to go against the rule and attack another pirate. Pirates in game are just a Nation with extra advantages over the regular Nations, you can turn it all the way up and down but it's a fact, so why should they get special treatments or special features in game ??

Either they make them the hardcore mode the dev's  promised so many times, limiting them for what they can sail and this being hard coded in game with a crew limit restriction and then give them special raiding mechanics dedicated to Pirates only with no possibility of conquests like a regular Nation, but something different as counterpart or they give them the exact same rights and features as other Nations if they continue with pirates being able to do exactly he same as any other Nation in game, no bypass, no special feature, there is nothing that justify extra advantages for them in this last scenario, nothing at all.

I find it very funny to see how each time pirates try to minimize things, you are nothing else than a freaking Nation amongst others in game, doing the same exact things as other Nations ( and often doing better as more organized, but this isn't your "fault", props for that ) , you always had and still have advantages others don't have, you don't have any disadvantages as counterpart so stop the hypocrisy already, either play with the same rules as others, no special  features or restrictions, or let the dev's turn the tables and make pirates into real pirates...

77295353pi.gif

It's the perfect occasion for this with the conquest changes, let them work on special raiding mechanics and maybe privateer ones, after all the Dev himself spoke of raiding in this thread so let's see what they will do for this, it's a problem they are reluctant to touch due to the large playerbase in this "Nation"  but it's been years now so it is time to get the things done and tested or they can just say they are fans of Johnny Depp & Disney stuff and give up on promises of hardcore mode and historical claims of this game, if so then they need to make pirates working exactly the same way as other Nations, with the same exact rules as others, no extras for what is only another Nation in game...
