  1. For those wanting a wipe remember, this is still EA. There will be at least one more wipe at launch. So, what's the big deal about having to wipe with the update? Balance the PvP action, no real need to wipe. There is zero need to wipe PVE.

    Post your idea for how to make sailing less dull.

    Hey, you brought up life and your singular view. Would you rather I assume or base my thought on what you actually stated. Wrong, playing solo does not mean alone. See, in an MMO, you can interact with other people, ally up, work together when needed, trade, etc. As far as NPC's, they are a necessity. I prefer sailing with others in my company however, how many companies can crew a fully equipped galleon?

    Playing solo does not mean alone. You have a singular point of view when it comes to life.

    Can't do ANYTHING in life on your own? Like what? I can do anything I want to, alone. Solo play cannot be penalized, it is a perfectly acceptable way to play, even in a MMO. Good thread, @Boomernoncannon. Definitely no warp speed sailing, I've made my opinions clear on this before. Currents, trade winds? I can't see an issue with that. As was said earlier, the expanse of the game is a core parr of it, don't take that away. I'm one of those that is fine with the sailing. There is no need to sail more than 4 or 5 zones except by choice. For whales or for maps. All resources can be found within 4 or 5 zones, except for some, Ironwood for example. I feel this is and was designed to be a more hardcore game. Not a game of instant gratification.

    Transferring Character to Single Player

    Don't think that can be done.

    Island owner rights?

    How was your company cheated? @Largocarne

    character stats

    You will most likely be changing those stats around from time to time, depending on what you will be doing. You will have level ups and after each one, you can reroll stats and skills.

    Totally chocked about this stream

    What about your hat?
  9. Wtf, man. Seriously. You really misinterpreted his op. Which, fine, that happens. But then you just heaped loads of snarky on it. @Decado, I'm with @Boomervoncannon, great feedback for the devs. I am planning on watching the live stream since I happen to be off. I am hoping for much from the new lead designer.

    Livestream Q&A

    Is a server option possibly in the works to make a PVP/PVE hybrid? I hate to bring up another game but, Conan Exiles has one that allows PVP against players for a set amount of hours, while keeping one's base secure from being destroyed by other players. That doesn't mean that their base cannot take damage from animals, bosses, etc. I do think that this type of "conflict" server, would cater to those that do want to PVP but do not want to see everything destroyed offline. Ship PVP could certainly be an option during this time period as well or, ship PVP/Player PVP could be an option all the time. I do think this would entice more players to play PVP that cannot be online all the time nor, have a desire to play in a larger company. Thank you.

    Are weight crates a scam??

    Recent and real life example. Loaded up on wood, 28640 kg out of 33900kg. No rack, was making 7-8 knots (ish). Stopped, created rack loaded it up max. New speed, 10.25 - 10.8 knots.

    Don't forget the undead in the trailer.
  14. You're a very cruel individual.
  15. Nothing new, unfortunately. I am thinking it's not a bannable offense. Have tried sending in a ticket with the coords?
