Barrels

Recommended Posts

I came to this game to have exciting boat fights. What we have is a band of nudes putting barrels in the seas. Great job

You can’t put them on ships but you can place them next to ships in the water. You can also place them on claimed land. So walk up to some ones door, wall ect and throw them down. So instead of making it harder to offline raid they made it easier.

No they gave us more PVP options which is a positive thing. If you don't want your boat blown to smithereens by some sneaky folks don't be lazy and put defensive guns around it. Puckle and swivel guns exist for a reason. Use them.

We use them all along our harbor. I don’t think that will stop some one from swimming up to the front of our boats from the sea. We’re going to need to redesign them for that reason.

So you swim close of a ship and u can put the bareel next to the ship and make damage?

Here is the patch notes. 

 

“Explosive Barrels will be undergoing some changes with this patch, please note that they're still in the process of receiving their redesign, but this puts them close to it:

  • Limited to 1 carryable stack per person.
  • Stack size will remain at 10
  • You will not be able to store them in creature inventories, however, legacy ones will remain there.
  • They will be able to be placed near enemy structures and water without needing a claim flag, but not on boats itself.
  • You will not be able to equip them into your hotbar, they must be placed from within the inventory.
  • There will be a restriction to how many can be put down at a time within a certain radius.
  • Reduced Explosive Barrel damage by approximately 20%
  • Reduced Explosive Barrel explosive radius by approximately 20%”

More pvp options is def a good thing, i think the issue is there are hardly any defending options. Puckles and swivels are okay but the tame cap and the sheer amount of gold requirement/no gold management systems make it impossible to properly defend a base when you’re offline.(lower idle cost would be amazing so you could unseat NPCs when you log in to reduce cost while you are active, but then again the tame limit really twarts this idea)

There is also no warning system for when an attack begins, people could be blowing up your base as you’re our farming, on that same island, and you wouldn’t  know.

puckles dont work underwater? Just swim barrels under people’s boats

 

I also think people should not be able to use gliders or climbing picks when they have grenades or explosive barrels. Barrels should be 400-600 weight imo as well.

Offline raiding should be easy. That is the whole point..

You're attacking when your enemy is weakest.

I had 30 cannons mixed large and medium, A dozen swivels. and close to 30 or more puckles on a harbor.. And dudes walked in and flame arrow boats at will. all they gotta do is find one blind spot while naked. then when they have a path in, come in with the arrows, stand in one place and burn all your boats. SO lazy has shit to do with it. Its broken.

 

Also that costs like 2-3k gold a day if you include youre boats crew and land battlements so yeah. i can make 300 fire arrows and a ramshackle. in about 30 minutes and be back to your harbor in an hour, sinking more of your boats. GG EZ
