Important: Server status announcement

Recommended Posts

Captains. Please pay attention to the important announcement regarding the pvp servers

PVP EU will be renamed "Caribbean"

  • PVP global will be closed down 
  • All assets from the PVP Global will be transferred to the redeemables tied to steam account including
    • combat and crafting xp
    • slot xp
    • knowledge books learnt
    • ships
    • money and monetary costs of buildings and outposts and dockyard slots
    • resources
    • clan warehouses are under review - we will try to merge them too to the officer who logged in last
  • Defence timers will come back: clans will set the 2-3 hour defense timer that will be used to set up port battles
  • Defence timers will cost 100k per day, clans can choose to not setup the defence timers if they choose to do so.
  • Next day port battles will be partially abandoned. Majority of port battles will start the same day from the hostility generation.
    • If you raise hostility before the defense timer port battle will start during the defense timer (which sometimes mean immediately)
      • you raise hostility at 2pm UTC 
      • defense timer is at 4-6pm UTC
      • Port battle will start today at 4pm UTC
        • if you raise hostility to 100 from 4 to 6 port battle will start immediately
    • if you raise hostility after the defense timer port battle will start the next day during the defense timer
      • you raise hostility at 8pm UTC
      • defense timer is at 4-6pm UTC
      • port battle will start at 4pm UTC the next day

TLDR: One world - one pvp server.

    HOLY F*** DEVS YOU ABSOLUTE MADMEN! 

    We wanted big change and you brought it, will this make the game better? Certainly, but we still need big OW changes.

    You talk mostly senseless stuff, thats all.

    If you don't think the devs randomly dropping a server merge on our heads is completely insane, and that the game could use more OW content then we'll never agree on anything. But I digress.

    Global was literally on its death bed and you pulled the plug devs. Good move, it was more frustrating than fulfilling. Now Global players can return to a completely different game, and all opinions and suggestions from here on can be based from the same server perspective.

    :) All smiles here @admin. Welcome back to the real PvP sandbox my European friends!

    Is there a potential timeline for such a merger? What about those of us who have more XP on EU than Global? Can we finally get a reconciliation between the two?

    What different game? You really don`t know what are you talking about.Players from other timezones can play on same server when Euros sleep? AWESOME CONTENT.

    I don't like that a pb can be set immediately. 

    Attackers can do 4 hostility missions without anyone noticing before it's too late. 

    With the BR on ports the defenders need the right ships there and an outpost ofcourse.

    I would prefer a 4 hour time window. But I think these changes are needed and good.

    Seems good at a glance - going to discuss with folks.

    Currently I am partial to portions of the map having "timezones" instead, but I see nothing wrong with this.

    All hail to nightflips.

    I guess those 100 from GLOBAL can ruin the game completely  :P

    You set your time window, there is no nightflip then.

    Nightflips are okay, battles are in the primetime. It wasnt really like you could have prevented a port flip anyway. Its only 4 missions, you could do with enough people at once. Solution sounds fair to everyone.

    Agreed on this. I would prefer if port battles were still only set 22 or 46 hours later to give everyone some time.

    all the praise in the world for you, a minor complaint would be the instant pb's
