When this game was announced, I was like FINALLY, the Naval/Land based sandbox game that I've been waiting for!!! I know this is an EA game and there are going to be issues, that's all fine and dandy. The problem is, those of us that were sitting at our pc's waiting for steam to update and release the game to be purchased, those of us who have been playing since it went live, we have given our opinions and suggestions from the start, and you guys (Devs) aren't listening. I know that the PVP side of the game probably has way more players than the PVE, so I understand the new format for them. But how about we fix whats wrong with the game and stabilize the servers before you add new game formats? The claim system you had before had its bugs but most of us were happy with it, what we wanted was a limit on flags placed, that's it! Period! Now smaller groups can claim an entire island? And on pvp it only requires one person to claim so on avg 5 islands per zone X 225 zones. That's just over 1100 islands minus lawless and freeports. So in theory 1000 players could effectively claim the entire system of islands? That doesn't seem right to me. Another thing, guys, what were you thinking telling us you're going to wipe the servers 3 weeks before you do? Ignorance is bliss sometimes, I don't think you'd of lost as many players if you had just waited on the announcement. Lastly, I'm not a business executive or anything but if my time in the military has taught me anything its having discipline and leadership, get your crap together you guys. There's nothing that shows lack of professionalism more than a dead battery on a camera as you go live with your stream. Its not like it was a surprise you were going live. These are the things people see and care about, all those little things add up. Again I know this game is still in the process of being created but lets get our crap together and listen to the people playing the game. You guys are in the process of creating a game that could do way better than Ark did. You really need to think about adding GM's to deal with complaints and stuck players and overall general issues within the game, and I'm not saying hired employees. But people that are active and know a thing or two about how the GM side of things works, have a GM be in charge of a section of 25 zones, that's only 18 people you'd have to add onto your trusted list. 9 for day shift 9 for night shift. That way people won't have to wait a month and a half for you guys to deal with a rogue player blocking ships in a bay on a pve server like I did. I want to be positive about this game but its very hard especially sitting here waiting for NA PVE to go live. I want this game to grow just as you guys do and I'm excited to see the possibilities of new maps, maybe even a "super" continent with navigable rivers with lakes!! Maybe a dev will read this maybe not, maybe you guys agree, maybe you don't. Sail on mateys!!
