Same as everyone else, I'm not really having too much faith right now. But still.... building a little base, making ships and arming them, doing testruns with them, sail to freeport for crew. Next to some taming, wich is pretty obsolete now for the farmingpart and treasuremaps/sunken ones, also the caveruns (nekked with pepper up my pegleg) are too much fun not to do. Even playing solo it is doable (PvE here btw). Exploring islands, making friends (some foes along the way) that's what's counting for loads of players.
The thing which most of us keep on trying and hoping what eventually , again with loads of hope, happens;
All those bugs from "Season 1"(Still can't get used to this season thingy), after each wipe
Want to build trust among players? Live up to your expectations. This is a pirategame ffs, not a zoo. We want way more action at sea. Bigger battles, more skills in the skilltree so we do not need those bp's anymore.
We want to be a trader or an outlaw, blacksmith or perhaps farmer to build our own trade/kill routes. Bp's are getting way too much attention, this should be diverted into skillpoints and more gold to trade. Let us start out as 1 of those and dive into the trade you choose and expand knowledge.
Farmhouses should be way more limited as well, 2 or 3 per company/island.
Let us start out with a basespot on an island as a soloplayer. When we want to team up, let us buy an island and REALLY manage it. And pretty please, get rid off lawless.
Oh, and 1 more thing...
Add lasers.Those bugs are getting pretty annoying.
