Partial materials wipe - advanced warning

Recommended Posts

Really how can we get paints in game right now?  Only paints I know of was NYE paints we got.  Other than use we haven’t seen paints in over 9 months?  Don’t know why they keep them out of loot drops when every thing gets wiped any way upon release.

I made a mistake. The correct sentence is:

Admin has said that paints are going to be obtained playing the game.

 

Paints new system require a full ship wipe. Maybe it is reason we dont see them anymore.

Well it's not a bad ship now, @rediiijust released a nice battle with it. For some reason the idiots didn't chain him once but the wasas problem is that the Bellona is simply better. There is no way to fix things like this. Bellonas are heavier ships but wasa is still more than capable of taking a Bellona out in good hands. I would not call it useless. 

I used it because I had it. I see no use of a wasa atm since Bellona does the same but better. In PBs its only a filler with BR but not used normally.

Wasa is too much of q glasscannon I think. It should be either a bit faster to be a alternative to the bellona or get more HP.

I dont know myself how I could win that btw. That 1 ingerkanland broadside they shot into me showed how easy it should have been to kill me (I was in a mahagony fir wasa)

That new system has only been hinted at and that was like what 9 months to a year ago (when did the wipe happen?)    There is no reason why we can't have paints in game until they change the system and do such wipe which would be prob on released any way.

So your saying we will have to wait until release to get pints back into game?

Yep. But dont get mad. Game will be released at some point.

Hopefully not this year because it is not close to be ready for a successful release.

Wasa should have a BP option to craft maybe.  Not it sits at a spot that folks really do t want to spend PVP marks for a ship that you can just craft a bellona to do the same thing.  Maybe give it a CM price too?  The only folks I see use it are folks that farm the crap out of capitals and are prob drowning in PvP marks

@admin

Please can you update and re-Write this Partial materials wipe discussion. This with the Real Currency introduction in mind. Maybe some rough target dates to help prepare and the google sheet update...

Now this thread alone is 11 pages with 12 additional internal posts from your good self

I would like to see a preview before the Update is just dropped

Do the devs ever know what they actually want with this game?

First I read you want to streamline crafting and 1 month later you say you can't because there are bigger priorities.

Please just do what you have in vision for this game and stop getting distracted by people in the forums who think they know better.

This may be a stupid question but, when will this happen?

#soon

When ever they get done with UI done which they said by the end of this month.

Than we have localization and any final things they want to and/or more likely the end of the year.

You don't get too many pvp marks when your in a group of 7 or 8 and mostly just seal clubbing.

If they farm enough it adds up.

Hey, so I created a forum account just to say this.

I have played the game since 2016, been apart of several big GB clans like DMENT, SLRN, and ROYAL, fought in alot of port battles and had a blast. I even started the Tournament between the clans going, with big help from Olav and a bunch of others. I absolutely loved this game. That was, until the player base started dying off from all the drastic changes being made in crafting, and cost of 4th rates and up. Then I quit Naval Action for a year and just came back about a week ago.  I like some of the changes that I see, like the UI, navagation and map UI, but that's about it. I have been spending this whole week gathering resources to craft a single 5th rate, and I haven't even gotten to build it yet because of the ridiculous needs of upgrading the shipyard, 1,000 iron fittings, 500 stone blocks and 1k oak and 500k gold, just to upgrade it to level 2?? That would be easy for a clan, but for people who play by themselves, that is alot of work. Not to mention we can't even buy decent ships in the port because the only ones for sale are green or blue Renomee's or the occasional constitution classic. If this patch drops that makes it even harder to craft the large ships, I will uninstall this game and probably not look back, because the player base will further die.  For the love of all that is holy, do NOT make it even more difficult to craft the larger ships.

It is perfect, as it is now I really do believe so.  Maybe minor tweaks, but they have something nice.  As far as building the ships man it's not that hard, you really need to get yourself to 5 mil gold to become powerful enough to build and drop resources at a whim, until then yes building ships will be hard.  You get to 5 mil initially via trading, so start with small goods, then flip larger and larger goods in larger and larger ships until it starts to snowball into a large sum of cash..  If you need help sometime PM me in game and I can help you make money quick via trade, then you can sustain it via PVE/PVP or continue trading and get richer.  But seriously once you hit 5 mil gold, it makes all things in the game much easier.  Wealth is power.

I must say, I am confident that Econ will be Easier to understand when crafting ships and mods. I'm on the fence about it being easier to get into, but I know that Crafting 5th rates isn't too difficult. Your point about the shipyard having a high "entry cost" holds some merit, but I know a lot of folks who are more than willing to donate or help you or anyone else along the way.

contrary to popular belief, Veterans enjoy helping newer players and returning players so that we can have a larger base of players :).

I got stuff like that in a couple of weeks with a new character, no problem - and I'm not even any good.  Also, shop for your "decent" ships at a place like La Mona or a national capital, where there are usually plenty of crafted ships for sale at prices that are easy to afford considering the massive payouts we get for curbstomping helpless AI traders.   Looting and sinking AI T-brigs and LGVs is like taking candy from a baby.

Go to the testbed server and you will see that the crafting system is being streamlined. Many of the intermediate goods such as iron fittings, carriages, ballast, etc have been removed. So ship crafting is easier in general.

Ok I am a fan of the streamlined crafting then, but I am still worried about the doubloons needed for crafting 4th rates and up (lower?), I just don't want the larger ships to become even harder to get and craft. I'd get on the test bed server, but I don't have the time, always working.
