    Magic Mythos

    A lot of the player base can only get on during the weekends and look forward to the 2x in order to make up for loss time, I believe there should be something for a rotation if they plan to do a 2x every weekend but at the same time I try to play the game on the weekends just like I would through the week and not get used to a 2x event. The one thing that I’d like to see addressed is the breeding, start at 10 in the morning on Friday, you have four hours of babysitting, so it’s 1400, 8 hours later for a imprint it’s now 22:00, 8 more hours and it’s 6 on Saturday, imprint, wait till 1400 Sat afternoon, imprint, wait till 2200 Sat night, and finish up 6 in the morning on Sunday. This is bears of course but all the same, two days is a bit excessive if you ask me.

    Ship name change

    We have the option to change a ships name but I don't see where to change it ? Does anyone have any ideas ?

    Laptop is a mobile, at least that’s what I’m guessing they are referring to. I also play on a laptop.

    No Large Cannons on Deck

    I don’t think anyone is suggesting that you sail up along side and trade cannon fire and see which one sinks 1st, you can catch a ship from behind or as it’s turning and empty a round or two on them, sail off and circle back again. Yeah they will give chase but plan ahead, get out in front and turn broadside and wait, they will come. Slow your sails but stay at the ready, your ship should be faster so make that work in your favor

    No Large Cannons on Deck

    It has never bothered me how people build, build to your heart is content then build some more for safe measures. You know the only reason I chimed in on this conversation was because someone said it wasn’t fair and they couldn’t do it. I just wanted to point out that it could be done with some strategy. I never said you were a newbie to the forums, I said that anyone who has seen some of my post knows I don’t pvp and that was not directed towards anything other than someone saying my OP was fine in pvp but how about pve. In this game as long as I’m able to play as I want within the rules of the game then what my neighbors do or build doesn’t bother me as long as it doesn’t interfere with what I’m doing. As far as I’m concerned to be honest, build a Schooner with 56 cannons on it and 1 shot any SOTD you come to. If the rules in the game change then we as players in the game have to change with it or find another game, you and I both know that it may be wrong today and right tomorrow with this game.

    No Large Cannons on Deck

    Those who’ve been a part of these forums for awhile and have seen my previous post already knows I don’t pvp. So your saying pve players ( solo pve players) can’t take on the SOTD without front or rear facing cannons? Rethink your fighting technique and I’m sure you can come up with a way you can. You may have your render distance to close otherwise just plan your attack. I carry normally 6 gp’s and 4 rp’s, extra steering wheel, bucket and repair hammer with plenty of resources for bad situations. I also place all points into Sturdiness and skill up the reduced sinking rate. I’ve sailed a long way with what appeared to be just the skeleton of the ship. It sank of course but it was still amazing.

    Post some information if you figure out anything, I was thinking it had something to do with playing in the PTR because I never had the issue prior to that.

    No Large Cannons on Deck

    Those of you saying you can’t fight SOTD groups without front or rear facing cannons need to come sail with some of us who do. Those who say it can’t be done shouldn’t get in the way of those who are already doing it.

    No Large Cannons on Deck

    Placing cannons on the front and back of ships was great if you wanted easy kills, the issues was that it caused just that, kite to win. The developers are attempting a naval battle by allowing the use of large or small cannons in gun ports you still get some creative ideas on how you’d begin a fight. Pre-wipe I never used cannons on the front or rear of the ship but I did plan my fights and some fights drug out for periods of time due to the slow turning of the Galleon and lack of cannons on the Brigantine. Fights were fun though but it did require planning to win especially having to deal with the wind.

    I play on NA servers and since the NA server came back up, when I go to log in it just sits there then gives the message of a host time out, I hit the rejoin button and go straight into the game. Not sure what has caused this but I’m hoping that the recent hardware upgrades will help resolve this.

    Hunting the Fountain of Youth again

    I’m not sure which is the easiest to do, honestly I found one that was easy and kept going back to it.

    Hunting the Fountain of Youth again

    It’s been constant at all locations before the wipe happened. C6 is pretty easy to run solo if you’d like.

    Not getting the crosshairs unless I’m aiming at the the ship, nothing when aiming over the water. I have 5 placed on the back of a Brigantine and I’m not sure whether it’s a height restriction, proximity restrictions or if something else is going on.

    Ballista help

    Pre wipe when using a ballista I would have green crosshairs, I placed 5 on the back of my Brig and of I’m pointing at the ship I get the crosshairs but not if I’m aiming into the water. Is there a height restriction or proximity blocker, do I have them to close to one another? Does anyone else have any idea or have you run into this before ?
  15. What the problem is that in pve you can’t kill a thieving pirate so allowing someone to steal off the corpse of another player is not pve. That is pvp gameplay. Keep in mind the person looting the key off of another player is not playing against the environment, they are exploiting a pve game flaw.

    Anyone else spend 50% in-game trying to combat bugs?

    It doesn’t matter if it’s alpha, beta or full release. We have all played games that were released as a full version that was worse then this. Cash grabs, fix it afterwards and not worry about pissing the community off. At least here the graphics are amazing compared to other pixelated games on the market, the developers are trying to work with the community and fix issues quickly and they do try to keep us informed with the Captains Log and patch notes. Honestly I’ve been very impressed with the team working on this even know I’ve gave the game itself a bad rating for now. The game is incredible and the possibilities are limitless to what this game could become but only if it doesn’t get sunk before it gets to set sail. Those people who jump at the chance to tell someone to quit until it comes out of EA are in the wrong and I’ve possibly done it in the past but honestly we should encourage those who are here now to stay and warn possible new players on what to expect and be fair with our warnings.

    Anyone else spend 50% in-game trying to combat bugs?

    Most of the bugs have work around a, sometimes it’s not a game code but a hardware (graphics) issue. The ladders since post-wipe have been buggy, I placed one ladder on each side of my ship and no longer have any issues getting on or off as long as I don’t use the emergency ladder. NPC’s have glitch since game launch, they have been working to make the situation better, it’s in the patch notes. The islands not matching the maps, well this is something I would imagine is on the to-do list but with more islands being implemented this summer, I’m not sure if we will see a fix until after the next wipe. The NPC were never meant to be used to move from one side of the ship to the other, I believe this was an exploit someone found to save gold cost on the crew members. I could be wrong but it only makes sense. There are a lot of bugs in the game and there are patches released every week in a attempt to fix some of them. This is a testing phase of the game, some of us found out the hard way with the 1st wipe, there is nothing stating what is fixed now will even be in the game next week. I’m sorry that you’re letting the bugs cause you frustration but I would suggest that you should either post in the bug section of the forums or simply work on something else for a little while and come back to the stress later. Keep in mind restarting will sometimes fix issues or sailing through region barriers will at times reset the npc crew that gets stuck.
  18. You have had some good suggestions and I’ll add mine as well, as others have said, the higher quality maps will offer more gold for your time, same with floatsam (use a spyglass to save time looking for the higher quality), if your in a desert region then you probably have salt, iron and other rare resources ( honey for example) pick up some and advertise as your sailing around. Set your tax rate to 20%, it doesn’t affect other players but nets you 20% of all gold collected from people doing maps on your island. In the area I’m in my neighbors and myself try to complete maps on each other’s islands and in turn it helps with the upkeep cost. Also more tenants that settle on your island will increase the amount of time needed for each upkeep cost to be met. Just food for thought.

    leveling ships is so slow

    So what is max level without mythic ? Or are you saying max level is 50 and with mythic it’s 55 ?

    Fountain of Youth

    I’m looking forward to it, that gauntlet was fun. I know some companies may have fought their way to it but a lot of people just ran and figured out a path. I was one of the ones who just ran, multiple deaths but it was fun.

    Great Big Thank You @ Grapeshot

    All they done was made the islands like lawless except the owner of the island can clear out foundation and pillar spam or any structures that have been built on rare resources. Some island owners will abuse this and demolish any settlers who try to build on their island for no more reason then they have the power to do so. No one living on someone else’s island gets taxed anymore, the only thing you have to worry about is the limited window for your builds, if the island owner doesn’t demolish them in (I think) 24 hours then you have nothing to worry about. Not saying someone can’t build on top of you but I’m sure you get the understanding of lawless.
  22. Sounds like you spent some time enjoying the game and doing the content but your letting some random player ruin it for you. I don’t believe you’ll uninstall the game over losing your loot this one time, those of us who have been playing since release have lost everything but we are still here, keep in mind that your playing to have fun, so what if you have lost a few hours, we all lost a couple months when the wipe happened. Don’t let something so minor ruin what could be a lasting experience for you.

    Vanishing Structure Pieces/Ceilings

    Jat this is a little off topic but related, I’m experiencing shrubbery coming up through the floors, I know pre-wipe that had been addressed but I wasn’t sure if anyone else has been experiencing it or not. I’ve only tried the wood floor so far. As far as ceiling tiles and walls go, I built a taming pen and walkways but I’ve had no issues with anything disappearing.

    leveling ships is so slow

    Wasn’t there something about your shipyards being used to determine your max level for your ships. With a Masterwork or Legendary only being able to produce a max level pre-wipe ship and now post-wipe ship levels are based on that. Or was I just misunderstanding the notes ? Here is the notes : Balance Changes - The higher quality shipyard used when building a ship, the more level ups a ship will be able to obtain.

    Tenant and taxes

    Ok, I didn’t play in the EU pve server so I really didn’t have much to comment on but here is my take thus far on the claim system. IT SUCKS !!! 1st of all being a landowner is great, I was able to obtain a 15 point island and I have one tenant whom I consider a friend. The island cost me 76 gold every 12 hours (I think), you can spend time gathering floatsom to pay that cost or do a treasure map or two. Now the issues are that taxes are charging everyone who gathers materials from the island 20% cost which is the max now, the downside is that the flag doesn’t require materials but it requires gold, so unless someone does a treasure map on my little island then the taxation doesn’t help a bit in the upkeep of the flag. Having more tenants may reduce the cost of the upkeep but to be honest just two of us can keep the island bare of resources just building what we want to build at the current gathering rates. I cleared almost every tree off building a sloop which the re-spawn rate isn’t horrible but it’s not great either. Now I could cancel the taxes while we are building or divide the mats up in the flag accordingly between the two of us but knowing her she wouldn’t take them and I wouldn’t use them because she wouldn’t. There is no simple solution, limited claim flags only helps so far because then you are limited to building where you choose to place your claim flag, now with this system you try to keep someone else from building where you want to build or you don’t want anything built which in turn makes the landowner the villain.
