I am missing one key aspect of the pirate fantasy and that is stealing ships. Of course it would suck to come online and your ships are not only destroyed but even worse, they are stolen. So here is my idea: Every ship is claimable like it is now but with one change. If the ship is not anchored, the further away it is from any coastline the less time is required to claim a ship. So from the current default time of several hours down to 1 hour minimum if in open waters. If a claim occurs in open water the default of 1 hour is increased/decreased by +-10% for every crew member the defending group differs from the attacker. The moment a claim flag is placed on a ship it can't be scuttled and parts cannot be demolished. For example: If the defending ship has 5 crew member (npc, tame or player) and the attackers get on board with 5 members aswell it is evened out and the claim time will be 1 hour. If the attackers have 6 members on board. The claim time is reduced by 10%. (Of course the numbers are just an example more or less might be better/worse) So what does that mean? Finally we can board enemy ships and steal them. It would require a lot of skill and strategy. This would open up new strategies and possibilities for PvP and Roleplay. Your ships would still be safe in your harbor because of the insane amount of claim time. I have never seen a ship without crew in open waters. So it would bring a new aspect to PvP. Not only stealing a ship. But what about stealing it back? I would love to board enemy ships, fight on the deck, kill the crew to get an advantage over the other crew. If this is a viable strategy, it could change PvP fights. Would love to see rope shots for ballistas to actually attach your ship to the opponents (but that might be too much) So what do you guys think?
So basicly we currently having the problem that everyone seems to be able to steal our Land. They ripped down our Shipyard with our almost finished Galleon in it. Is there a way to protect your claims while beeing offline and how to protect it while beeing online? And does anyone know if i can contact the dev´s somehow? Would be cool if they would change Claim for PVE in a way that the Timer before u can steal territory increases with every built structure on it. That way u either need to spam structures to keep your territory or new players have a chance to claim unused territory but its way harder to claim territory with bases and shipyards on it.
Claim stealing and how it works presents a big problem in PVE atm people can lose everything in an hour and a half stealing territory from another company even less for boats which gets annoying pvp should be enabled against those claim stealing, a system so even if one is offline they dont get wrecked, boats shouldnt be claimable in PVE or some system that makes it inline with the idea of PVE while still giving new players a chance to acquire land without having to join a mega company.
Hey, I noticed most islands are claimed at this point. I have one in mind but it is heavily claimed by a few people I was just wondering how to I steal peoples claims. I tried traid shoving a flag next to theirs. however i nothing seems to happen the flag does not place even though the outline looks as though I can place it.
