  1. First, let's understand that the Devs have a vision of this game involving heavy trade and mercantilism. That sounds awesome for a game involving ships, and pirates. However, this can NEVER exist in a game that promotes mindless PvP and destruction. If you want the first part, you have to put throttles on the second. So how to do that? I believe that several things can be done. First, we do want PvP. We do want raiding, and we do want to sink ships. But how can we do this in a manner that doesn't inhibit fun gameplay? The basis would be a Reputation System that mimicked a justice system. This does not have to be hard or complicated. It simply has to recognize that all PvP and all Destruction are not equal. First, you have a system of lawful and unlawful points awarded, and and then have a few different player standings related to that system. At a minimum, they would be: Lawful Outlaw Most Wanted Outlaw (option) Dread Pirate With Lawful, you are unrestricted, you go anywhere and enter any port, freely. With Outlaw, you are free game for other players to shoot at, and you can't enter lawful ports. AI would shoot at you and your ship if you enter. With Most Wanted Outlaw, Lawful players are given a buff when combating you on land and at sea, and an AI Royal Navy hunts you. But people also want to sink ships, a lot. So, you put in smugglers, and pirates in all ship classes, with their difficulty ranging by the class of ship they are in, and the rewards for sinking them equal to their class. Sloops easiest, and Galleons hardest. Sinking them also gives you lawful points. Lawful points don't build up, they just remove Outlaw points. Conducting trade with lawful sailors and merchants in other companies, gives lawful points. Raiding adds Outlaw points, but so long as the destruction is not mindless, this won't add a huge amount of points. This is determined by what you destroy. Doors, hatches, and containers won't add a lot of points. Damaging ship hulls, masts, sails, etc...adds a lot of points. Sinking them adds a whole lot of points. Same goes for bases. Containers would also have an option to just destroy the lock. This allows for less Outlaw points as you do not destroy the container. This allows you to take what you want, and the owner comes back to find what you did not take, still in the container. This will allow for more mercantilism and trade because you don't lose everything and start from scratch. You have something to trade to get gold to purchase important things you lost. Presently, the container gets destroyed, the raider may not even take anything, but everything in the container is lost. The above will actually, also encourage real Pirate game play. You have somebody outgunned, and no way to run...you offer them the out of letting you board, and take what you want, then leave without a lot of destruction. Time will also be a modifier on your Outlaw score. Time lowers your outlaw score by a set rate, if no outlaw activities have been committed within a set number of hours. This would need to be subject to testing, balancing and tweaking to get it right. Companies and individuals could accept player placed missions for escort duty. A player merchant asks for an escort for their merchant ships, and other players accept the mission. Only upon acceptance do you learn where the origination and destination are. The original request only tells you within a 3x3 grid where both are. Once you accept, you are duty bound to do the job. This will affect your Outlaw score. If your company or allied company attacks this merchant, you get HUGE Outlaw points awarded. If a rival company sinks it, you get some, but not a lot. Getting the merchant to safety removes a good number of points. This also, would need tweaking to achieve the desired effect. Doing trade/business with lawful players and companies will add a small amount of lawful points. Declaring war on another company, would reduce the penalty for attacking ships and bases that are not ORP protected. You still want to encourage PvP, not PvE disguised as PvP. Also, a modifier based on your company's Outlaw status, and that of the Company you attack, could come into play. For instance, if you have no outlaw status, or a very low outlaw status, but you declare war on a company with a much higher outlaw status, you won't suffer gaining outlaw points as much. Individuals and Companies that reach Most Wanted Outlaw status, cause others to receive an offensive and defensive buff when battling them. Your status would not be a secret to you or others, and so the leaders would need to manage the activities of themselves and their members, and remove members who don't follow orders regarding this. Removing a rogue would not immediately remove their affect on your company's outlaw status. Time would remove it as per normal function. This prevents exploiting this system by kicking out those with high outlaw status, and bringing them back in when it is low, as a means of managing the company outlaw status. In short, once balanced and tweaked, this would not punish raiding, and PvP, that is not mindless destruction, and create an environment for a thriving economy. This system, along with some form of ORP, would prevent one person sinking a Brigantine, or Galleon, from shore or a raft, with some fire arrows. That is not the kind of game play most people are looking for. You cannot have mindless destruction and PvP in a game where you want to promote trade and mercantilism. However, a good system would also not eliminate PvP. It would instead promote it in a manner that made the game more enjoyable. Gamers, and especially Meta Gamers, will do what the game allows and rewards. They will not do, or do less, what the game punishes.
