What has happened with the La Mona Patrol Event? (PvE)

Recommended Posts

The La Mona Patrol Event used to be one of the worthwhile patrol zones, compared to, say, the Antilles one, which has always been terrible due to it's bad positioning.

Yesterday, I did the La Mona one, and found that it has changed drastically. I spent nearly eight hours, tediously and patiently patrolling that zone, and found only one LGV in all that time. Mostly, the only targets were a very occasional trader brig. It took me eight hours to earn a mere 12 combat medals, and loot a pitifully small number of doubloons. This is absolutely ridiculous. Can the @admin please do something to rectify this?

Excessively nerfing the doubloons available from delivery missions was bad enough, but combined, these punishing changes have made this game more trouble than it's worth, IMO.

If you compare the map of ai routes devs published a while ago to Patrol Zones, you realize that Patrol Zones were never made for PvE server. There is a  mismatch of both routes and ai class vs player class.  Also ai rate/typ distribution varies day by day, so there is a thhird potential mismatch.

Basically there are very few patrol zones worth your while and  in those all experienced players camp the little ai traffic there is in the same spots.

Thats why I posted several times already a suggestion to put some ai spawns into patrol zones or adjust ai routes to match patrol zones.
