Combat medals are for combat?

Recommended Posts

Please make combat medals non-tradeable. They should have to earned through combat and combat alone; not bought from money easily gained from afk trading. 

Discuss. (?)

The only reason I will disagree with you here is because combat medals can be traded in for mods/books that are flat out more powerful than the majority of what you can get by crafting/farming. In my opinion, this game has a real problem with gameplay that focuses too highly on getting the best gear. Those who "lose" the race effectively can't ever "win."

That being said, I think I could be convinced to make them non-tradeable if we took a look at balancing Mods (which seems to be what will happen?).

as a side-note, I'd love if we could trade our victory marks to the admiralty store to buy combat medals or doubloons.

I like financing my ships etc. by pvping / selling combat medals, and maybe doing the occasional trade run. Taking that away would mean more forced PvE

You could still sell the items you buy with them just not the currency itself.

I agree on the Victory marks and pretty much on everything else too. 

The reason I propose for CMs to be non-tradeable is because there's too little participation in the activities to obtain them. PZ for example is generally empty or with a few gank groups. If anyone has a better idea to make people actually play the game to earn them I'd be all ears.

I can see your point. But what I see in the server is the majority avoiding PvP and doing PVE or trade to get CMs, in the PVP server. Its boring.

Then what is the point?, people will just start selling CM-items instead of CM... so players can still avoid pvp to get those items anyway.

How about we just do pvp where pvp is.   Cough cough LT channel. 

 

There is enough to earn your cms.  Not sure why you don't like that other players could buy it.    You have pvp and income. What others do doesn't matter. Btw if they go out afk trading they are pvp targets. I know it's hard to see that.   So actually if people do trading  they sail from Port x to port y. Means they are pvp targets all the way until they jump into port.  Also the sea isn't "empty".   There must be sonething else in it what you think of Changing how cms can be traded etc

This is useless.

Combat Medals are needed for ship permits, books and upgrades. If CM are not tradeable, players trade permits, books and upgrades. 

Think before u write

Either for CM's or something else, cause a lot of us are sitting on a ton of them after ports are upgrade with nothing really to spend them on.   I could see a few refits that can only be bought with VM's or maybe some mods.   That way it's more things that can be traded for.
