Forthcoming patch info

Recommended Posts

Patch will be deployed this or beginning of next week. 


Preliminary info on important contents.

  • Finalization of battle rewards (properly calculated even if you switch ships to avoid players losing marks if they switched to enemy ship and later sank it)
  • Bot fixes
    • Almost all bot routes through land will be fixed
    • NPC hugging will be fixed - bots will always fire if they have a shot. 
    • NPC reload freezes will be fixed
  • Crafting rebalance ( @Coco patch)
    • Crafting levels will be changed (there will be only 7 ranks) and thresholds rebalanced
  • Former free towns will be added to nearby counties.
    • This will cause the reposition of standard resources in those counties
      • Building wipe will be required
  • Additional PVP upgrades for the admiralty.
  • Group missions will return
  • Delivery missions will be adapted to allow players to make some money on short term r
  • Final pre-release DLCs will be added (when valve approves the pages)
    • L'Hermione - french concorde class frigate
    • Rattvisan (Ретвизан) 24lb gun forth rate
    • Pandora might get in as well.

We will try hard to push port management into the build but it is looking unlikely. Port investments allowing expansion of resources will be deployed in the hotfix if this feature does not get in with patch.

Diana, constitution classic... what about them?

There is also no news from great ships like temerarie, montañes and wreker 🙁

 

Can you show an image of the Rattvisan, please?

Rattvisan (1763) the 64?  That's arguable as a SOL but fair enough.  I guess its the same class as Agamemnon.

Can we know what's happening with Diana and constitution classic?@admin

constitution classic Constitution is in game and is crafteable. Permits can be received from the admiral's chest.

From game files it looks like a third rate:

From historical sources looks like a third rate:

But hey! I forgot Consitution is a 3rd rate with 450 crew / 54 guns while being a frigate-class and 630 crew / 66 guns SOL will be a 4th rate...

I have done some research as well but still in the shadows.

eh...

I'm looking forward to group missions and the eventual port management..

but more pvp upgrades? a large DLC drop of ships? 

It's like every new ship will be a DLC now, what a drag.

Also.

Nothing on Ship stat re-balancing? Should we expect it to come? 

Nothing on permits being too limiting? it's just - "yeah they good?" .....

A dangerous move to have such ship as a DLC.

I think this will be interesting; we've seen from the herc/requin that players will act more aggressively, and PVP more when they have redeemable ships. Expanding that to 5ths/4ths I hope will have a positive effect on the frequency of PVP!

But... I don't think we can have both a wide array of DLC redeemable ships AND the present system of ultra-rare/expensive permits for so many ships. The influx of DLC ships that will almost certainly make up a majority of PVP traffic has to be countered by a diverse and competent selection of craftable ships for those not willing to pay for DLCs to compete. Right now with so many ships locked away under rare or expensive permits, the selection of non-DLC ships is limited and new players would probably be daunted.

How often will you be able to redeem that 4th 1/2 rate ship?

so lets see how it'll go

1. more crew than any other 4th rate? check
2. likely more HPs than most 4th rates? check
3. more guns? check
4. 3rd rate in 4th rate disguise? check

wow, it's almost like another pay-to-win power creep vessel.

didn't learn a thing since the Requin I see. Only DLC ship that should have been considered would have been the Hermione, even that is a stretch.

A good number of folks have asked for changes to current ships, permits, RoE - but it seems to not be addressed at this time. I only hope something is in the works...

I feel like the DLC ships we already have are destroying the meta. Sinking them doesn't even feel satisfying since they are so easily replaced. Even larger DLC ships are sure dominate the seas when so many players are chickens when it comes to losing something with actual value.
