Hopefully they will never allow for the purchase of actual, whole ships.

 

Maybe they could implement a concept of "premium ships" where you could purchase or build the ship with the in-game economy and then you have to purchase a cash store writ to sail it (anyone can buy, sell, trade or build the ship in game but only people with store writs can actually sail them)?

 

I hope to not see any total bypasses of the in-game economy.

Pretty sure it will be a complete bypass, but they won't be as good as exceptional (or I hope mastercraft) player built ships, and will only be up to 4th rate.

There aren't any premium ships available for purchase now. I don't know if anybody knows for certain when they might be added to the game.

I look forward to being rammed, blown up and generally trolled by players in premium ships.

You can get quality ships from other players right now or even build them yourself.

Just ask who can build the design you want in your nation chat. When you get a ship from another player you enhance the game for yourself, the other player and those who play along with his supply chain.

When you just buy a premium ship from the game store you only enhance your game experience and a small portion of the Econ game potential disappears forever.

I know this is probably not the answer you were hoping for but if I'm going to be a ship builder in thus game then I need customers.

Would really love to see some premium ships. I would say that I would like to see a cosmetics shop but after about a month you see so many of the same combinations it becomes impossible to have a unique design.

On the dev Q&A live stream a few days ago (http://www.twitch.tv/braincage/v/39127630) one of the devs said premium ships were an option they had considered when they weren't sure about the funding level of the game. Currently though the sales have been good enough so they're not worried and that if it continues as it is now they may not need to do premium ships to raise funds.

I want me a  big ole boat that is always yours. One you can drive in to an island and watch it espload and do damn stupid stuff with and not worry about loosing it. That was one of the early concepts that drew me to this game. I don't know how it will work or effect game play as far as conquest and such but I want it.  I did just have a thought. Make them only for the PVE servers. They will not be p2w then but we will still be able to sail them just for the fun of it. There could be a duel mode for bragging rights that will not effect conquest in the PVP world. That "duel" mode would be good for training as well. I haven't looked at the forums in a long time and this idea might have been already thunk up, but it would be a cool mode which would not effect the conquest aspect of the game.

 

PS the miss-spelling is just fer fun.

Personally I don't think premium ships are a problem as long as they aren't the most powerful ships in the game. I would definitely buy a premium 6th or 5th rate equivalent though just so I don't have to deal with the cutter grind whenever money gets reset.

Look at yaht. Is it game breaking. ?  

 

I hope one day to get Premium ship Similar to Constitution.   I would dive head on into pirate invested waters and sink all day long, but have fun on my way down to Dawy Jones Locker. 

 

Redeemable ships will not break the game. They will add more to pvp world. 

 

Make ships expensive = no pvp. Only ganking squads. 

 

U go hunt other ppl and for 5 hours u have no pvp. only run away encounters. Y that is a good game play.

 

Make a ship cost 300 000 and no one will pvp in it.

 

 

Take a POTBS. First rates did not see pvp what a waste. 

 

Take a look at World of tanks.  Lowie did not break Game. It give developers funding, it gave players  Fun.  

 

 

I tell you. Yacht system redeemable ships with few durability's and 48h cooldown  is a way forward.

As long as it's not pay to win or pay to troll I'd be all for premium ships. One question though....would they be capturable? If so, assuming they were like the yacht and could be redeemed multiple times, the system would be very open to abuse. Then I'm not sure if the yacht is capturable , havn't actually tried.

This is what I think the biggest downfall of this game will be. It's going to be the same crap as Eve Online where nobody in their right mind is ever going to engage in a fair fight, just a lot of running and chasing to set up ganks.

 

The best skill based combat mechanics in the world don't mean crap if the only people who will ever fight it out with you are the no lifers that can spend all the extra time grinding for gold.

Developers are aware of this and they will do all they can to encourage ship battles.    

 

I have alot of hope for this game, where POTBS failed.

 

Do not make ships Expensive. Its not that hard to understand.

one posible alternative is to sell premium versions of the ships you can find in the port shopp

 

this keeps premium ships at 4th rate highest, opens upp more people to pvp caus they no longer need to grind to replace losses, colldowns on claiming new ones would diversify the ships you see sailing around AND would not lock any content behind a pay wall

To be fair, the amount of work it takes to build a battleship in Eve has stayed constant, the fact that they are selling for more is only an indicator that the money supply is up.

 

Still, Eve is ultimately a space tycoon simulator. It's not about who shoots better or flies better, it's about who can throw more fists full of ISK at you.
