We have combat marks already. Why introduce yet another currency?

Combat marks could work.

Paying 50 combat marks for towing a frigate and 100 for towing a 1st rate.

Some Marks connected to pvp kills,  You want to make travel only for those who pvp? In fact there are 0 combat marks on the market in most largest ports on US server. This means it will not work if something like this happens. Unless you use PvE marks.

Tow trader to faraway port (100% safety) - sail halfway (minimal risk since you own the port, who the hell is gonna camp outside of sight range near it all day) - teleport home with cargo (100% safety) - rinse and repeat. Miniscule risk, miniscule effort, miniscule content.

But maybe the plan is to phase out trading completely by introducing crafting by notes for every ship. What a waste of an open world when all the content happens inside instances and its only use is for the 3-5 minute sail it takes to from port, to instance, to port, to instance.

You were able to teleport ships most of the time in NA (missions and duels) so lets see how it will work out.

I just hope that more players get back and stay

Have you played the game? You get combat marks from PvE. Much easier than from PvP in fact.

I try. Still 100 marks =  to almost 10 battles. 1 battle takes about 30 minutes in good ship to complete and all depends on fleet size. Question is how long does it take to get 100 marks in Naval Action if you want to use that as currency for travel.

I get 40 marks with my first rate (the same you want to tow) and 400k attacking OW fleets. While doing that I can switch off my brain because the NPC doesnt hurt me due to SoL thickness.

What about casual players who will not have 1st rates. Think from the bottom. Guy who got frigate wants to go pvp and tow. What now? We will limit his experience while Vets will have no problem again.

The only way you need to tow a 1st rate is if you have a 1st rate. If the guy in your example doesn't have a 1st rate he will have no need to tow a 1st rate. And in a 1st rate it only takes 2-3 missions to get 100 combat marks.

Make it 10 combat marks to tow sloops and brigs.

25 CM to tow frigates.

100 CM to tow Lineships.

@admin Could we have ability to send ships to enemy port with status available for all?

BTW
I don't understand why there are no ability to teleport to that ports.

This could work. How long it takes a guy in a frigate to get 25 marks? If time is reasonable to 1 hour then we have a winner. This means 5th rate 1vs1 mission must give away at least 10 marks.

A casual player can ask in national chat for a SoL crafter, for god sake.

No one ever saw Russians and their bears in Caribbean as well, but they are coming! You create history in game world. It's healthy for the game and it's population. One thing is if Devs stop adding content all these people will quit in a month. Game is too flat right now.

Upheaval in Europe
Colonial navies of 3 European Nations will start arriving to the Caribbean in the beginning of next week. The estimated  point of arrival is not yet known, but rumors point to Shroud Cay. It is already known that colonial navies will have no capitals and will have to establish the base of operations by conquest to get access to resources and admiralty services.  Captains who were sailing for foreign nations will be able to change allegiance by means of forged papers that will be provided to all. Captains who want to be ready to switch to their new nation right when patch hits could prepare by closing outposts in national towns moving assets out of them to neutral or free towns.

This is fantastic! I hope that the majority of nations will look like this in the future, with a minority of "Safe PVE" nations.

On the economic front
The windfall tax allowed governments to find the way to provide tow services to captains. From the next week captains will be able to tow 3 ships per day to an outpost of their choosing. To compensate for the cost of the tow service the reinforcement zones will be slightly reduced around uncapturable cities, to not cover 70% of the upper antilles. 

IMO, 3 ships per day is way to much. I also have a few questions regarding this.

1. Can you tow your ships with cargo? only with repairs?

2. How long will it take for a ship to arrive? one server restart? based on distance?

3. Will different ships take different amount of time to arrive?

4. Does this include the Neutral/Open for all ports? or only national ports?

I apologise if these are known facts, I did not play when this was in the game before.

@admin Any news on a server merge or at least some sort of transfer allowing players to swap servers with their XP and stuff?  3 more nations is great........but we need people to sail in them.  Global already has a couple dead ones and I hear EU has a couple that are hurting for numbers as well.  

Edit - this ship towing is going to ruin whatever little pvp there is left in the game.  The best chance to find any now is to catch players setting up their ships for that next day's port battle, now we won't even have that.
