    I'm out again.

    I'm done... again. Decided not to play until there's a wipe and the whole stupid land claim system gets fixed. It started with someone claiming and taxing a previously unclaimed island where I was farming tin and cobalt. It got exacerbated when I was trying to build a ship to take on STOD. Spent a small fortune in time and resources, got to the part where I was trying to place a sail and it kept saying obstructed (even though it was blue). Ripped half the ship back apart and it was still obstructed (and got 0 resources back because it wasn't 'anchored'). Got pissed off and demolished the entire shipyard. Then, got to looking at claiming the island I was on (not because I wanted taxes but because I didn't want anyone taxing all the work I'd put into it) and realized just how much maintenance I'd have to do to keep paying for it. Screw that. If you claim the land, you're taxed by the game, forced into a time-sink to pay for it and the only thing you get is that someone else can't tax you. If you live on someone else's claim, you're taxed by them, spend 20% more of your time to gather the same amount of resources and get nothing return. If you live on an unclaimed island, someone can come tax you without so much as a by-your-leave and you get nothing in return. Of course, the other option is to live on a lag-fest lawless island and there, you are never truly safe from dickhead neighbors. Sorry but this is supposed to be a game, it's supposed to entertain the players. None of those options above are entertaining to me. Ta-ta.
  2. THANK YOU! My god that was a long time coming. Always pitched my gear out under something and couldn't get it back.

    Think of it like this. It's so much like reality. When you created the company you went to the bank and got a loan to start it. All of your shit was collateral. When you left the company, the bank repossessed. They just dispensed with all that bothersome legal paperwork. Here's the good news. Now that you know the secret, you can become rich (providing you're very likable.) Just start a new company, get people to join and then, boot them in the ass. Voila' you now own all their shit!
  5. Still hoping Realist. Still hoping. Have you bought the game yet or are you still spewing from a spectator's perspective? And for a serious response to this thread: Nothing is going to happen the way you want, the way you expect or even the way you hope. Thus far, Grapeshot has made it perfectly clear that they have some obscure vision for this game and they're hell bent on making it happen, regardless of how screwed up things get (remember paste to make a rock?). Early on they tried to make a comparison with EVE Online. For years, EVE players have had a voice in the direction of that game. https://community.eveonline.com/community/csm/ 10 players from the community are elected to that council for a 1 year term. CCP even flies them out to Iceland every year, flight and accommodations paid, in order to meet with the devs and discuss face-to-face the issues the players have. They don't always agree but, the players voices do get heard. This post, and the hundreds if not thousands on this forum like it, are nothing more than pissing into the wind. That gif that I made, and the reason everyone sees it as funny, is because that's the perceived truth. Until this game has something similar to that csm, you can jump on these forums and scream your head off all you want. Just realize, that gif is most likely how it's received.
  6. Funny thing, I made this like 6 months ago and it's still true today.

    Nope, game still fucked, not coming back.

    Game crashing has been a problem since day one. SOTD have been a problem since they flooded the ocean with them the first week. And not having your own loot drop in a freeport when you die was a problem the minute they released that stupid patch. You have no idea who I am but I do know what this game is.

    RIght, because we know this game has been perfect since day one. My god, look who turned into the fanboy.

Got my RSloop, next zone over, 5 SOTD dog piled me, ship gone. Lost all my shit, Ctl-Alt-Del, end task, fuck that. Waited a week. Restarted in a new freeport. Got my RSloop, Killed by 5 pigs, Lost all my shit. Fuck it.

    Give me my time back

    Because dipshits like you keep singing the praises of broken EA games, companies like GS can get away with making YOU pay to test a game for them. Damned funny isn't it? GS is laughing their ass off all the way to the bank selling a busted game and you're defending them like that's how it should be.

    Give me my time back

    Because god knows, that as a paid beta tester he should have no right to get pissed off when shit doesn't work. How dare he. Oh... wait a minute...

    Captains log Vol. 23 = full fail !

    I think you seriously underestimate the number of a**holes on this planet. So, let me give you a reason: Because some people just want to watch the world burn.

    Think I'm done here for now.

    Very clever. Any game that gives me an API where I can write my own C# code and create my own AI... in game... has my attention. I've owned it for years. Now, the servers are finally becoming stable enough that it's MP PVP is actually playable. He guessed it.
