    Pvp sharks frenzy idiots killing this game

    Apologies sir. Next time I intend to attack a structure I will hire a private investigator to learn the players history. Only once I know this person is a savy veteran will I attack.

    Ship destroyed but not in log?

    I think the logging is jacked up. Couple days ago we had 5 ships sunk. All missing at least 1 plank and a couple 3-4. The planks were listed as being destroyed in logs, but no log of them sinking and who did it.

    is this game officaly dead now?

    Many of my friends and I refuse to touch anything EA does. I know there are many around the world who swear the same and hopefully most of them actually do it.

    Eh worth a shot. Maybe enough people do it and forces their hand.

    Why are cheaters not getting banned?

    If you don't get in trouble for aimbotting I doubt you would get in trouble for naming them.

    Too close to enemy gate or foundation

    PvE? Spawn somewhere else. PvP? Tame a bear and put a cannon on a cart. Blow it up......or spawn somewhere else and build one.

    Either Do Something, Or Just Cancel the Game Already

    I doubt the money they bring in from new sales outpaces the costs of running those servers at this point.

    Now genesis is out, is the focus back to atlas?

    Grapeshot games does not have a wiki page. Maybe someone here can set one up and let the world know how well things are going by listing a timeline of events.

    Too much negativity

    Yeah its the internet and people behave like children because they are protected behind an avatar. If a lot of the people here on the forums acted the same way in real life and in particular professional life they would not be very successful. I've complained about it as well. Its a lost cause.

    Rethink the Road Map

    Its instanced. I hate MMO's that do this. I love my large persistent world where everyone sees the same damn thing.

    Now genesis is out, is the focus back to atlas?

    I'm half hoping someone out there with deep pockets, friends in the legal industry and access to a pro-consumer courtroom decides to open up legal proceedings. Getting to the point I am wondering if all this was just a money grab.
  12. Can I turned in my cards?
  13. This is why I joined a company that can actually defend itself.

    game keeps crashing pc

    I've been getting less crashes the last week or two. Its so inconsistent it is hard to pin down to a given patch.

    question about bears

    They had two bears. Possible the bears were imprinted and had mating bonus. I don't know the exact differences, but there are bonuses for this.
  16. I don't think crew had a anything to do with it........at least for PC. I've moved newly launched boats around manually and whistled ladders up and down.
  17. The BP drop changes are definitely not a nerf. We've gotten more usable BP's the last couple of nights than we have the last month or so.

    Base Defenses VS Bees

    Bees do not knock my NPC's off. Hmmm will have to test this.

    Maps difficulty been increased

    Not the best of options, but given the sitaution you can do a couple things. 1. Wait on GS fixing the issue and risk the map spoiling. 2. Contact local land owners/megas. Sell them the map at 2-5x gold listed on map. I know lots of people willing to spend a good chunk of change on a legendary map. Very rare occurrence. 3. If you have a good relationship with any of them get them to join your company with crabs to kill the AoTD. This way they get a good chunk of XP and toss them some other benefits as needed.

    Are there any pre-made sail designs out there?

    I've never seen a repository for sail designs. Would be a cool resource to have.

    opinions Your Ideas For Atlas!

    Hot zones: Every 2 hours a random zone is elected the hot zone. When this happens there is a server wide announcement specifying which zone is hot. Also if possible the map shows which grid is the current hot zone. This zone has increased SoTD spawn rates at higher levels, increased BP and gold drops for SoTD and shipwrecks. Also maps for this zone become boosted during this time increasing gold and BP drops. Maybe increase high level wild creatures (more level 30 spawns) as well so the breeders have something to look for. This will increase zone and sailing traffic in and around these areas as everyone looks to cash in on bonanza. This should increase sea combat as people look to profit off of these events. I stole this directly from Shadowbane. I loved this game mechanic. You could profit from this greatly and also always guaranteed a good fight.
  23. I think players are a bit more skilled now so SoTD's in greater numbers is less of a concern than it used to be. I remember how crazy it was at one point and would not mind seeing that on occasion. IDEA: Random 2 hour hot zones. When a zone goes hot its announced to the server and that zone has increased spawn rates, higher end SoTD and increased payouts for BP's and gold. That could make for some fun sea battles.
  24. Eh seems a bit of a stretch to me on the map side of things. The increased spawns and improved drops for SoTD and shipwrecks seems to fit though.

    large handling sail

    I've had that happen a couple times and I think Sleepinator2k is on the right track.
