Re: Give the game back to the players.
Oh, they do - but the mentioned items are not part of the economy, when they could be, which would add another layer to the fun.
Since sloops do actually fill up with swabbies... I'll point out that it's not bots=fail in such situations, but a player's failure. However, I don't believe failure at the social game should be as limiting as it is. People don't like waiting in dock, and generally don't. I consider that partially a game mechanic failure, particularly when, as you mentioned, even a sloop can fill with bilge if you don't have the talent to move it.
You're wrong, of course. What it will do is allow big flags to attempt to expand their reach, without locking small flags out of the blockade game as it has... forever.
I've been gone three(?) years, so a couple of days back hasn't given me enough time to absorb all of the changes. Perhaps I'm just reading too much into the ocean merger as an attempt to retain a player base that's been bleeding.
Not trying hard at all, really, and OOO doesn't need to do anything; these are just my recommendations to lift the game's permanent appeal. To me, anyway.
