Got doubloons for sinking my own fleet ship


Recommended Posts

During the last portbattle my ship got damaged by enemies. After I boarded one of them I switched ships and gave sink command to my old ship. Then I could loot doubloons.

Around 38:00

Player controlled AI or in general? Yesterday I got in fight with someone who specifically sank my fleet Indiaman just to loot it. It makes sense to me, but could you confirm this as a feature?

cant you just explain how the mechanics in the game should work instead of speaking in codes? Its impossible to know what to give feedback on and correct feedback if there are no clear answer.

Admin confirmed that all player AI ships can drop doubloons. Regardless if enemy or friendly.

All NPC ships may drop dubloons. Means a NPC you attack in the OW, means your own fleet NPC that gets sunk/captured, or a player NPC fleet ship that gets sunk/captured, etc

All NPC ships may drop "crew pay" in form of dubloons. May means exactly that - not guaranteed.

The question is: is sinking free and spare dlc AI ships for doubloons considered feature or exploit?

Due to the lowered droprate it would be the most ineffective of exploits. I fail to see the problem as those who might try it would learn there are other and much faster, easier and better ways of trading reals for doubloons.

Currently we have 2 dlc ships so I agree. But what if we get more?

Ah, yes. Forgot about that. Still wouldn't be a massive doubloon machine. What's the harm in a tiny trickle?

One harm is that it sends false signals to players. Why nobody reports bugs? Because they stay and get named feature. Like the mod duplicating that was viewed by some as feature. 

Even it's a chance it's an unfair advantage for no dlc users. Small but it is. That's what some even call doublestandard.
