Forthcoming Seasonal Update Information - NSFW Leopards and NPC Port battles on the Peace Server

Recommended Posts

Well, the game receives an update and that is a good thing to see.

Although personally I would love to see in the game the tweaks that the community has been asking for (less BR in ports, way more profitable trading...).

on another note though, wouldnt it make more sense to fix game content and balance before more paints are being produced?

I get why you want more DLC but at this point I feel like it should only be for cosmetics. There's already way too much spam with redeemable ships as it is. Despite the huge variety of ships I keep fighting the same ones over and over again. What the game really needs right now is rebalancing. A bunch of ships need their stats tweaked and the BR limits for port battles need to go back to where they were previously.

Sounds ok, and happy to hear PvE server is getting some love even though i play on PvP.

Another DLC ship some will like, and after all is a choice to buy or not buy. 

Can you bring diana back into the game as non DLC perhaps, or is this also destined for the same fate?

Well if the stats is what I googled, then I don’t see much reason to buy the ship. But I could ofc be wrong. Not sure keep Selling dlc ships is the way to go. Maybe make some Real content, and sell that as a dlc

What are the Stats of the Leopard? The API stats must be wrong. Its only a small 4th rate of 44m and no agamemnon or wasa like the Stats looks like.

Is it possible, that every player gets a Leopard Note for free? Just for testing before wasting money? 

No comrade, you spend money. If you don't like ship, too bad!

Can you get rid of "Enemy Player" and allow visible names across nations as well please?

Socializing is main PvE content.

I ma excited... especially for the possible NPC capture of ports... very interesting and engaging. Cant wait to see what happens with this.

And... the paints look awesome.

Also... is this a 3rd rate or 4th rate? All I know is it is obviously a type of ship of the line... oh... sorry I just realized it is a DLC ship! It is definitely a 4th rate then...

If it continue like that it will be the PVE server that will kill the PVP server :D:D:D:D

 

Give the option for consensual duels/small battles in PVE and set aside 1/2 of the map for clan wars (in which only members of warring clans can tag/fight each other) and boom in a month the PVP server will be a dead husk while everyone (including me) is living the good life on the PVE server.

PVE server is about 1 or two  updates away from killing the PVP server at any time, I know we shouldn't speak for everyone but I think most people don't really like the anarchy style "warhammer 40K in ships" mechanics of the PVP server and would much prefer a server that offers a mix of activities and options without constant fear of gank fleets or getting destroyed by rvr zergs.

Talked about it with my clan mates.

If the peace server got port battles against other player clans - pvp server would be dead.

At this point - if you put ANY form of consensual type pvp on the peace server, pvp server would die.

  • NPC will try to capture rich ports from large clans using unique raiding mechanics on both Peace and War servers. If NPC's manage to capture the ports the port will then have to be recaptured. We do not know the intentions of NPC raiders on the port assets (yet). 
  • Most importantly this means that ports could be recaptured from NPCs, which will open clan control, taxation and investments for the Peace server, and long overdue map fluidity. 
     

 

Raids

  • Small groups will be able to raid rich ports for profit and glory. They could become a second or maybe first source of admiralty rewards and money for adventurers like you. They are oriented for all segments of players and will be accessible even to those who only have 1.5 hours in the evening. 

What will be the trigger that will make Neutral NPC attempt a retake of the port? Is this just random? Or will there be a player influence that can attempt to trigger it? Meaning, can enemy nations supply Neutral NPC with Combat Medals or Victory Marks to try to influence NPC on attacking a port? Or maybe are players required to "maintain" ports in some manner to prevent NPC attacks on a port?

Will Raids show up in Missions tab?

2 months since release and the biggest update we've had was additional paints in a DLC that was promised back in march or april.   

Quotes like this come from people who severerusly underestimate the time and complexity of a skin in any game and have no idea. There were no promises on dates and if they were they were always with the disclaimer that dates might change. 

1 new paint can take from 3 to 10 man days (depending on complexity including qa and programming time). Game has 250 paints now all tested and working. Some were done in unity 4 and had to be remade from scratch and retested before patch. You can easily calculate man months on the paint project. 

 

ps. Apex legends - a 100 mln dollar game - have recently shipped 24 skins for 150 dollars as part of a major content update

@admin You mention three new features for the Peace server, but you mention War here too.  So will NPC port flips happen on War Server too? 

This would be interesting, but than again it's a PvE server with elements of PvP after all while the Peace is a PvE only server.   I mean bring it on if it makes for a  more exciting map if folks aren't fighting other wise.   Maybe if there was like an AI/Nation, but really can't see it working for War.  Though a deterioration on ports maybe, if no one uses it or pay?   I prefer some means for Clans to change ports in nation first before we have any AI/NPC attacking ports.  I mean what type of fleet will they have?  Will they just be ELITE BUFFED up fleets or something or just normal ships of that BR range?

Let us all sit back and wait for the massive attack on Vera Cruz, at server time 0300.

NPCs will follow SOME rules and will attack within timers.

Another DLC lineship.

Not sure if I should laugh or cry honestly.

I honesdtly would prefer the LVG Refit be made a DLC or they give us a Refit of the Indiaman, hell just a DLC trade ship would be nice....While more 4th rates in game would be nice, but do wee really need two DLC 4th rates?   I would prefer it to be in game craftable and not a DLC or hiden behind random RNG loot drop of permit.

For Peace server never understood why they still had this, cause it's not like your going to fight each other or run away.  Most likely you might join the same side of a battle.

We can only provide information that we provided above, and Yes.. NPC aggression comes to War server too and it includes attacks on ports.
