We have to move on Reply to this Post

We are currently in a state that the game is basically stuck. We are stuck with 3 islands that does not even have the "new" buildings that were released >= 2012 or so e.g trinkets and such, we are stuck with only stalls and ships and the game is barely moving on, it gets really boring.

I am not talking about myself, I am used to it because I know it will come some time, but the new players we gained, 1 month ago, above 800 players online, for days, weeks! all are almost gone, i barely see 500 online at weekends.

Why aren't blockades coming yet? atleast a test blockade, its been a long time

Couldn't agree more I have found myself asking why I am playing anymore. I love the game but its boring, I have less here then on the other oceans and they nerfed the poker I loved. I can go back to my wealth on Emerald and enjoy my fleet. Something has to give soon to keep me on Obsidian! I really hope its not a trickle of islands being released. We need to spread the shops out and be able to buy stock.

The draw to the new ocean is that their were people and pillages went well load times were fast. Now its more fun to just go puzzle on the navy....

Totally agreed. Last week at this time there would be well past 500 people and SMH ships would fill much quicker. I see Shiaku sitting in his Xebec trying to fill it for well over an hour (I jobbed it well over any hour ago), when I jobbed he had 7 people, now he has 9. I just miss the old Viridian days when Atlantis and Flotilla runs would fill within 20 minutes.

I was thinking maybe just maybe the issue was Halloween, or nearing spring semester finals. But If that was the case Emerald would have seen a similar drop.



The other issue is the players that are on are approx 25% on Port Venture, before you blame poker there haven't really been more the 3 tables most of the time.

Maybe its HS, but no cause CI''s are still out and the decline has been steady. A simple look at the job board and you will find about half the people seeking gunners... this is one of the bigger problems every one wants to run a pillage (self included) but lack of gunners really makes it hard to do. Of all the things in my opinion to fix the game would be kades yes for existing base, and returning players but for the new player having decent bots or a 2nd gunning puzzle so we have more gunners in the game would be great. Even better 2 ship puzzles for each duty station are needed to reduce boredom and provide a little variety.

Couldn't agree more. Everyones stocked up and ready for blockades, and as far as we known they might not even come out till 2018... It's starting to get boring we basically have plain YPP with SMH Ci HS and KH.

Yeah I have absolutely no reason to spend any more money on this game until there's at least bigger housing. And with nothing compelling to spend resources on, there's not much compelling me to play. Back in the day, we'd all sit logged in anyway just to chat, but we've got crew and flag discord now, so don't even need that.

Seems a little off that there is -less- content than already exists, on the new and exciting server.

First actual blockade, as in, that results in players coming into governorship of an island, appears to not be until January though.
