A date with Diana: Event

Recommended Posts

Captains!

A Date with Diana event started!

zyLlHRG.jpg

Solo Diana frigate and Santa Cecilia frigate will sail in 3 locations in the Caribbean.

  • South Antilles, North of Trinidad - French and Dutch ships
  • West of Tumbado - area between Cuba and Tumbado. Spanish and British ships
  • South of Hispaniola. Pirates and Danish ships

Ships will sometimes drop the note for the vessel as loot. If you don't get it on first try dong get discouraged.
Additional rare ship was also added to the south of Hispaniola. It will not drop a note.

Event will run for this weekend and several days during weekday next week (From 6th March until 11th March next week). Ship nationality might get changed based on the nearest ports depending on initial feedback by players.

 

Additional changes

Rare flag Kronstadt Rebellion Flag was added to the admiralty stores of Russian Empire and Pirate Republic.

ps. A date or The date?

Since it's a big event, "The date" is more appropriate.

Nice event!

Maybe in the future more of this kind of event , and/or maybe some pvp tournaments :D

Edit: The capturable ship will have port bonus?

This kind of events are very positive. Almost every mmo or online game has special events to give something different to his playerbase.

If you capture one in a cecilia you get extra style points.

This weekend we will run a short event called "A Date with Diana" based on some awesome ideas provided on the forum. 

Several Diana patrols (with some other rare ships) will cruise around a central location on the map. Ships will be capturable + will sometimes drop additional notes for the ship. 

Some changes will be also deployed on permits (finally). We will add full patch notes to this topic tomorrow. 

 

will it be possible in the future to maybe add treasure fleets? say you find a treasure fleet sailing from Havana to Panama, the it says 10 medium ships (indiaman) and 15 large ships (elite lineship escorts). Could be same even as these, maybe escorted by rare ships and happen at random times and maybe once every week to make it unique

How about having the patrols all over the map so people on more out of the way places get to enjoy, rather than spend all the time just sailing to the location. It would also help to spread out the action a bit.

A date with...would suggest it would happen again. The date with...  would suggest more a one off event.

Maybe several and with a reasonable respawn time so the event could be enjoyed across different time zones.

The "fleet destroyed" event is kinda failure as only the closest and fastest players enjoy it. A event that lasts 15-30 mins at best.

yeah the fleet destroyed is farmed by the closest ones since you go in a 15kn indiaman. But i dont think a frequent respawn timer would be good though, to keep it from being farmed. It should rather be a fleet you find randomly and you would want your friends to come out and help attack it before others can spot it. It would perfectly replace the epic events as we have today. The loot from epic events vs combat missions are terrible so they are not sought after. I remember when they just launched the epic events people would fight over them because those instances were the only ones that would drop special loot.

Why so much effort when you can just redeem redouts?

oh my god! If you think there are too many Redoutables now, take an Essex, sail and kill someone. Other people do it too crybaby. Incredible that whining all the time!

I think the idea is more about frigates having lost most of their purpose outside shallow patrols when Redoutables&+ are everywhere & gank groups in snow are better as cheap disposable do it all ship.

So making such beautifull but "meh" frigates so rare is difficult to understand. They will mostly end taking dust as dock queens.

Ok for the event, but give us admiralty notes/ permits too !

We do like your replaceable, but we do also like all the other 3rd rates, but whats the point sailing a bellona when the BR is allmost the same and its outperformed in all ways vs replacable? You dlc the next strongest ship in the class, its bound to happen

Thx devs for this event. Sounds good!

But devs, you have bring a functional and practicable diplomatic - alliance System ( in my opinion between Clans (of all nations) not with Nations)

That happens when community votes for late launch date ships / best of their class. You end up with ships that outperform the early ones.

Implacable is better but hidden behind a rare permit keeping.

Also, it would be nice if the event lasted at least a week. Some of us work on the weekends and don't necessarily have time to play.

I still have a few.  I might just have to send a char out hunting.

 

@admin make sure they respond through out the day so all folks get a chance at them.  I’m still working crappy hours but want to try this event.  Also don’t have all in big fleets so folks can solo some of them.
