This game is missing the RIGHT kind of conflict.

Because this game is billed as a "PIRATE" game (mostly younger) players have assumed a faulty and misguided persona of trolling and messing with people.

I suspect what many of us have in mind for this game is more of the "Privateer" version of pirates -- Historically Pirates were not all "Criminal" -- many were hired by governments to mess with rival countries or companies. Piracy only thrives when there is a thriving resource trade -- Merchants!! <-- I'm sure this is in the works...

Here are some ideas that might be fairly easy to implement:

Craft-able MARKET (like the Bank) -- Allows players to put up resources, ships, animals, and gear, for sale on their own land. <-- also a taxable resource

TRADE HOUSE/TABLE/CHEST -- Similar to above, but allowing for a safe trade/transfer interface similar to other MMO''s where two parties can put up their individual offer, and either accept or decline.

Property TITLES -- For any "Claimable" (ships, animals, land, even chests or connected foundations) allow the player to generate a "Title" that can be put up for sale or traded to another player. Titles would just be another commodity. 

Issue LETTERS OF MARQUE -- These were given to captains of renown to "legally" hunt rival ships. <-- This would allow for a second layer of company interaction. Not allies, but a hired guns (cannons) <-- they could receive a (negotiated) cut of the profits, or run off with the loot and gain a price on their head. This would allow for limited PVP on PVE servers. If the player gets a price on their head, they are fair game for PC's as well as NPC's <-- It's important the the bounty be assigned by the game, not other players... this is just another avenue for trolling.

Agree. right now the game is more focused around owning as much land as you can by spamming land claims and less about I dunno... playing a pirate? Even in the fantasy terms of what a pirate is.
