But hey  DLC - Devs like cash.

Creating new ships is very costly.

I'm happy if ship DLCs help implementing new ones.

btw Pandora is free for EA testers.

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 

 

 

 What is this bit about?

Freetowns that were already switched?

 Yes me also, Devs neeed cash to keep game going.

 Now is just matter of balancing ingame so DLC are not all ships people use.

U-oh, this thread....

Could someone please enlighten me...both the Wasa- and the Gustav Adolph-class were considered 60-gun ships in the swedish Navy (and their plans say just that: 60 guns).

So how can one be a third and one a fourth rate? I don´t care about the overall rating in-game, but if it´s practically the same ship, there should be some consistency, right?

I think many will buy them to just reduce a bit of grind. They aren't P2W

 

If they are allowed in PBs they are P2W.  I’m fine with cosmetic DLCs.  Most games have them.  I even fine with DLC ships.  But when those ships are better than their contemporaries, just like the herc and requin were, then they are P2W by definition.  

Im even ok with a little P2W DLC content.  The devs do need to keep funding I suppose.... but we’re approaching what?  Almost 10 DLCs now for a game that wasn’t free to play and still has not been released.    Even the special early access ship promised to all of us for being loyal tester will probably end up as a DLC.  This seems excessive to me and it feels like all they are working on is DLC content to pump their loyal base dry.  Enough is enough

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...

You just have to get the right people to ask for it :P

Please..PLEASE make them craftable DLCs, not ship notes...

Make them "Imported ship" so we cannot trade them or capture them, but make it so that the crafting permit is redeemable from the DLC, not the actual ship-note like Hercules/Le Requin.

A 24/48 hour redeemable live/white teak/white 4th rate is going to bring all the problems of the Hercules in the past x10.

Please.

It will prob be 48 hours but I think that model going off how long it takes to craft them is poor model.  It should of been something like this.

Yacht every 24/24 hours cause it's a 7th rate

LRQ every 36/48 hours casuse it's a 6th rate

L'Hermione/Hercules every 48/72 hours cause it's a 5th rate

Should prob be no 4th rates or above DLC's unless they are trade ships.  I think a Indiaman DLC would be better than some combat ship, or something bigger than it, but never a war ship.  If they where allowed than make it something like 60/106 hours so they are more a once a week redeem.

Other wise your going to have folks in nothing but DLC and just farming every one else with redeeming there ships every 24 hours.

 

I honestly see now point in crafting now ships if all the best ships in each class is going to be pretty much the DLC ships.

 

That could be another way to gift all EA players with the Pandora, ok so it has to be a DLC that any one can buy right?  Well on day one give every one the BP that was EA in game....bang we can not only redeem it once every so many hours but we can craft it any time we want. I like running a crafting ships cause it's my ship with my name on it.  DLC ships should never be more than 3/5 ships if they are not crafted by players also.  No one should be able to redeem a ship and get a gold/purple ship that way.

I don't get it. Correct me if I am wrong but the Hermione is already in game right? Why is that becoming a DLC?

Its all that I will use with crafting so limited.  I used to love building my own ships, but I'm not crafting oak/oak targets.

Yea but if they aren’t a bit more OP, no one will buy them.  

That is incorrect. They just need to look nice. The aggy is a ship that would sell just because she is a work of art. The Wapen would be the worst choice ever.

wasn't that the restriction though ? Or was that what we were told before ? I have no idea as to whether DLC's are usuable in PB's so I am just asking

If they are . and then they are the best of their class, i can see your point. If not, then I wouldn't worry too much, for me it's a moot point as I won't purchase any DLc pre release for the simple reason i want to see what we are getting first

They are allowed in PBs and the requin in particular has been ruining them since it was introduced.

DLC ships are allowed in Port Battles. I'd love to see a port battle fleet that doesn't use a Requin.

@admin, I am not enthused about this announcement.  You still haven't addressed the current pay to win situation with the req and herc.  Please don't ruin your game.

so lets make the L'Hermione a DLC? Its already in game, its not even that popular of a ship, ppl hardly ever craft it, how is this not a cash grab

Possible Pandora DLC? the one possibly only reward we get for being an early tester, and you just sell it to anybody, How is it a reward if anyone can have it?

Sheez, just make all the ships DLC and make us pay to Sail them why don't ya.

It's not Casuals that buy the DLC, it's the hard core PvP players that do.  Most casuals don't want to spend a lot on a game.  They just want to pop in play and have some fun and get there 40 bucks worth.  I mean look at guys like me.  5 accounts worth about 250 dollars and I have about another 250 dollars in DLC content. I have over 9K hours in this game (mainly cause I wasn't working for a year and half) and I'm far from what one would call a casual.  Most my alts have over 4K hours.   We are the ones buying up the DLC content not the casuals and newbs.
