Re: Server future, Opt-out PvP, Neutral Crews
 
So, yeah, PvP is the "big" thing about Obsidian, and yet GH hasn't done squat to make PvP good.


Pretty much this - and in some ways, by upping the risk to "innocents" (those not actively hunting other players and/or going about their daily business) by introducing sinking... They've made PvP worse from the point of the view of the "innocent" players.

It's no longer "I've lost some stuff and now I need to carp and bilge". Now it's potentially "I've lost everything - cargo, poe, and dubs (to recover a sunken vessel)". When losing a single battle can cost you days or weeks of work, the average player (and especially the merchants) likely aren't going to stick around very long.

Unless you're Eve Online, the player numbers and the money aren't in enforced high risk non consensual PvP.
