Making a 30-60 minute route not including any engagemnts would deter people crossing oceans cause theyd need to spend a lot of theie time on moving ships aroud. If they make it a long route, do 7-10 max. We want tp ne able to easily move ships around

What this person said.


No. You do not make a game more interesting by making it easier. You add challenges. The main point of the merger should be more jobbing opportunities, a fuller Voyages board. Shorter load times for larger boats. Things of that nature. It is to give you things to do, places to see, people to meet. Not to keep you in the same old rut.


Your stated goals are all accomplished without making traveling between what had been separate oceans an hourlong (or more) time investment.

I think following the advice of massively long "inter-ocean" routes would just ensure that everyone forever views the new ocean(s) as two separate servers that were plopped together. That's the wrong message to send. The goal is to contract the game into something that has one, larger population (or 3 larger populations as the case may be). Not two smaller oceans playing on the same server with the same jobber pool.
