Re: Server future, Opt-out PvP, Neutral Crews
 
It's no secret that PVP is half the point of Dark Seas. It's practically been in the strapline since the first announcement post.

Yeah, that has always puzzled me. PvP in YPP isn't that fun of a puzzle and has lots of other problems with it. Bnav vs brigands isn't too bad because brigands are fairly stupid and fairly predictable. Bnav on the blockade board can be quite fun.

But 1v1 PvP? Yuck. It can be "fun" for the attacker when they cheat by using low stat alts, or loading up the other ship with alts that jump ship when the PvP happens, or doing various other things that will get you banned eventually, but two well staffed ships can shoot hundreds of cbs, be pretty aggressive, and still end up being a pure waste of time.

Back when OOO ran the OCL, they went to great lengths to make sure that ships had barely enough players and combined with the glass-cannon long ships, meant that you actually had fun.

So, yeah, PvP is the "big" thing about Obsidian, and yet GH hasn't done squat to make PvP good.
