Is armed escort coming back?

Recommended Posts

Is armed escort coming back? Will we be able to once again fleet a battleship with our (main) trader and make port?

This mechanic being taken away has killed it for me. I've played about 2 hours in month and a half....

I think  this mechanic was removed because players used it to position warships in enemy ports.  I haven't heard that anyone had a problem with Traders having a escort for defense.

Perhaps we could allow Traders could use warships, limited to the fleet, with conditions;

  • The warship can not be sailed out of an enemy port under player control,
  • Warships cannot leave a battle instance under player control,
  • Players must return to a friendly port to gain player control of the fleet warship,
  • Players can  switch from a traders ship to a warship inside an instance, but cannot leave the instance on board the warship. 

Think about it.  Might work.

Two types of perks, fleet perk and escort perk, escort perk being focused on traders to allow their escort ships into port with them, not being denied access for coming protected which isn't the worst idea ever is it?

Fleet perk being as it is, Escort perk giving you 1 armed escort per perk, only allowed 1 for now because that's a big change that should be implemented with all due caution to balance.

they should have option to man the fighting ship if u attack and a better interface to manage ships in fleet in battle , for after battle good shuffling, they just should not have the option to have books activated, can earn xp, but no books activated, so for trully pvp purist to play without there pressious books and advatages, they dont like that... so traders will have this way means of defence and even limited offence (if u attack for example traders or ships of sertain kin) 7-6-5 rates exept the basic cutter
