  1. 1. Do you think Event Zone RoE need adjustment?

  2. 2. If you voted Yes - Do you think players should be able to join battles on each sides until it has reached...

    • 1.2x the BR of the other side
    • 1.3x the BR of the other side
    • 1.4x the BR of the other side
    • 1.5x the BR of the other side
    • 1.6x the BR of the other side
    • Other
    • I voted No
  3. 3. For how long should the battle be open for anyone to join, without BR restrictions?

In testbed we now..

I assumed it was just to make everything more accessible for testers, I still think we will have a dedicated coin type for PvP.

Liq, baby!

Nothing's going to happen while they're pushing out this giant patch.

Maybe after some hotfixes?

Nassau with the updated ships BR is not that bad nowadays. Actually it becomes a nice squadron vs squadron battle most of the time.

While I dislike how patrol zones currently are, I must agree that the Nassau patrol zone is probably the closest one in a good state.

2 things I'd consider doing.

1. Halve the BR limit on all patrol zones except nassau (it's in a good place)

2. Possibly bring the old "x1.5 Br" style mechanic back for the defending side...or whichever side has lower BR. If there is a battle that starts off as 220 (herc) vs 70 (snow) the side with less BR has the battle open for others to join up to x1.2-1.5 the BR of the originally high side. In this case, the 70 br side would be able to allow an additional 194 (220 ×1.2 = 264 total) or 260 (x1.5) BR.

 

...Or the devs find a way to limit entrances on whatever side has more BR until the max BR is achieved.

Glad we finally found a use for the Nbrig! :)

Poor sod... i still remember the day she was introduced into ST. Love at first sight.

No meta, just love. And found out about the bow sprit because two hercs tried to break the Nbrig one but they broke theirs... was funny to say the least.

That should do it. Even Nassau, because all Hercs most of the time :)

Now that you mention it. I don't think i would halve nassau. Go to 600-700 BR.

The small battle challenge was 100 times more fun than pvp zones. On top of that it was player created. Bring it back!!!

Ooof!

I had a frigate run from my frigate last week. To me it describes how absolutely super-shitty player psychology gets with eco turning brains to poop. Yes, I blame eco! If not eco, what makes people turn away from a potentially equal fight but come back in numbers to ensure the other party suffers loss? What else could make people min-max fun out of their gaming experience? Why do I point at eco? I've played another big world, do-what-you-want, RvR online game without eco where people didn't exhibit this behaviour. [/rant]

Yup, we need anti-gank-pro-fun-pro-challenge mechanics in patrols desperately.

Sorry @Liq happens to me almost every time I play the game. Players do not want a challenge, they want their enemies to sink while having zero risk of losing. I will take note and put these players on my "do not respect" list.
