I am getting a feeling this is a game for the old and not the new players, First because only a player that has been around for a year + will have everything they need after this patch that has put me back at ground zero again. I was so close to getting the navy loads man mod.

Now I might never get it. And with that said I don't ever seen myself reaching the clouds like older players. I think the Devs are the big guys and they are keeping the little guys from ever reaching them. 

With the patch that has cut me down and stolen so much I worked so hard to get, I see this game becoming a 3ed rate game on my play list. That's right devs that's just a coffin nail that you just hammered in. 
I thank you for the great time I had and only wish you would stop breaking a good thing when you have it, But I guess that's a hard thing to see when your holding it behind your back.I wish I could find a game where the Devs do what the players ask and not what they think is a better way. for the game to go. Because we all know how often a good game gets destroyed by the devs and their updates that just drive away players.

I know they mean well. But they need to step back and talk to a new guy to see hove to help them to build and grow so that the game will grow. I am thinking they should start a new account and see how a player gets no where. Then try to help the new guys out and still keep it fun for the older players. Because the more players the funner it will be for the pvp guys. 

I know many people do not like the new patch and I am one of them. But before I take this game off my play list. I would like to see how other new players feel about Having the upgrades they need to get up to the level of the people that hunt them, 

Do you think the cost of the upgrades are to high now?

Do you think the older players will have a harder time getting the upgrades when they do lose a ship? 

Do you think the game has become easier with this patch ? Like so many people said it would be..

It seems to me Crafting harder now! .

Yes easy to craft if I could build the buildings needed to craft. I know I didn't' get all the buildings all built back up.my shipyard, workshop and every building was built up,. but now I can't get my shipyard up the lv 2 and a building like the academy lol now I need a building just to craft the stuff I was already crafting.. so yes and no.   Yes it is easy to craft If you have the buildings needed. you know the ones I don't have anymore! or at least have back to the lv where I was at.

Well I will see how many players feel as I do and how many players are not affected by the change, because the stock piles they had

I kinda wish they would have taken everything away. the ships the ports the gold put us all back to one port and a b.cutter  but keep our ranks. make it like a new game where everyone is making a mad dash to get ahead. yet no one is so far ahead that they are like gods to a smaller player. Thats what I wish when a big change like this comes around. Because now this game is dead for me. because fair is fair but only if your fair is bigger than mine right?

 Thats it I am done see you you all in a week to see how you all feel

with the patrol zone reward boosts its pretty easy to make doubloons. 20k damage which is about 2 5th rates gives you 2000 doubloons. Yes the risk is higher as there is enemy players concentrated there, but all you have to do is do damage so even if you capture a ai ship/buy a shop ship with me guns you can pretty quickly get doubloons every day.

Keep in mind there is to be a wipe before release.  However, it seemed to me that there was nothing that cost more than 10,000 doubloons - which sounds like a handful of traders.

To me it seems super silly and random that you can get a good 1500 dubloons off a npc traders brig, but then again get next to nothing in a pvp frigate duel?

Can someone explain to me the sense behind this?

People keep mentioning the huge drops of dubloons from traders as if every trader you catch drops dubloons, while the truth is that it is very random with only very few traders dropping dubloons. I have killed quite a few traders and so far only one has dropped dubloons and that was only around 300 dubloons. So yes there is a chance you can hit the jackpot and get lots of dubloons but the chance is very slim.

Admirality should be giving rewards for sinking player enemy ships. I think it should give old pvp mark amount times a fixed amount as doubloons for rewards. So sinking a 5th rate should be around 150 doubloons ?

Doubloons are not PvP marks, get that out of your head now.  If you want rewards, take missions for 4th, 5th, and 6th rates.  You'll be amply rewarded.  I think I saw a tab for PvP missions too, just not implemented yet.

Is there any information why this wasnt a full wipe?

Especially new players suffer from massive inflation, that just needs to be removed! This would have been necessary directly after they messed it up shortly after patch 10. A whole year they did nothing! Testing "new" economy, and asking for economic feedback now based on a completely broken situation is ridiculous. When a full wipe finally happens nothing will work, because nothing was tested and figured out properly.
