I am Kimmy on Midnight and have done so much as her and do not want to change her name. There is, however, a Kimmy on Cobalt with no stats/no pics/and I don't know if she was around first or not.


Well, this was answered. If the pirate is indeed older than Kimmy of Midnight, provided they haven't logged on in the last 2 years (which considering I don't see any "Sixth Order Jolly Rogers" on their page) you're safe.

Well. This will be interesting.

Edit: I don't agree with the pirate rename ability open for everyone. I would recommend it only be for those who have the suffix. It seems like having it open for everyone would cause confusion and could be exploited in the social puzzle.


But - what if the wrong pirate gets renamed? I started on Hunter, but now play almost exclusively on Sage. The pirate I don't play will keep the name, and the one I play all the time will get renamed - But I can't name it back without renaming the old pirate something else.

See the problem...

I am not sure if this point has been brought up before or not, so if it has been forgive me :)
During the one month where blockading will be suspended, can we get the ability to build on islands to be frozen as there are many opportunists on all oceans who'd sieze an isle before the merger to be able to build easily 8+ shoppes in a month for quick money. Thanks

P.S. I do agree we should have commemorative trophy/trinket indicating our original ocean :)

For all of you who are worried about merged pirates (same name) - there is a fairly simple fix you can do.

We're going to be told when the merge happens.
The day or whatever before, simply transfer your assorted "wordly" goods to another pirate (alt greenie if you have no other option).
Delete the pirate you don't care about in your merged environment.
Your "oldest" in use pirate will keep the name.
Transfer your deleted pirate's goods to your main pirate.

The only issue really is going to be housing.
If you have housing on two (about to be merged) oceans, it would be nice if there was a one time (HEY - OOO - pay attention) chance to transfer house ownership between pirates.

Question: I personally own a pirate named Asheme on both oceans under the same account. Who is to be given priority there as there can't be two ashemes on the ocean?

And if I have no rogue marks to rename one or the other?

Just curious about that fact.
----------------------------------------
Asheme - Malachite/Viridian Oceans - (2009 - 2011)
Mastorakis - Meridian Ocean - (2013 - present) that is all.....

I would tell you to read the Q&A but people don't seem to be doing too well at that.

The pirate you made first will have the Asheme name. The more recent one will gain "east" or "west" onto their name. A pirate that has their name changed can alter their name for no cost after the merge.

If Cobalt and Midnight are merged will I get 72 hours of labor per day per account on the combined ocean? Or will I only get half the labor that I currently get for the same subscription price?


This has been mentioned twice in the thread and its something my shop keeping hearties (with shops on both oceans) have asked me too. I am hoping you are able to answer it. Thank you.

Will there be only one route between oceans, or many?

(aka, will there be anything special about the journey between oceans? Or is this just a bigger world map?)

Hate and love this merge, I'm keen to see what happens when the oceans do finally join.

Will there be any changes to memming after this merge? Since memming two oceans from scratch will take incredibly long, could the requirements for memming a league point be nerfed from 2-8, to something more practical like 2-4?

Another idea could be to change the way charts are used, since at the moment, charts don't play much of a part in the economy.. just a thought.

For those who are so thankful to OOO for doing this;

Do you ever think about why did they create Cobalt in the first place? what was the damn point ? Or having 4-5 dub oceans?

So now they are just doing whats need to be done, about 5 years late. No need to make it a big deal.

No, that's about as good as Hunter can get. Hunter needs more action on its western end, where the connections are.

My concern is that the inter-ocean routes seem short and frequent. While I think that having more than one route between oceans is important, I would skip the route from Sayers and probably the one from Manu. I would also probably add one up north near Qaniit, adding a new archipelago in if there isn't anything like it on the Sage side. I might also stretch out the routes I didn't scratch so that they're longer than four LPs-- maybe seven or so.

Have the merged ocean maps been decided on already? If not then I would much rather see Hunter on the east of the Hunter/Sage ocean with the connection to Sage around Alkaid Island.

I don't know a lot about Sage but the western part of Hunter could really benefit from the increased activity and I think keeping Aimuari and Admiral at opposite ends is a good idea.

A few things...

Someone on the forums suggested Viridian/Malachite become Meridian. It's a fantastic idea. It combines both names, and fits the nautical theme of the game.

I don't know where the oceans will be attached, but the logical place for the interocean route is either off Yax Mutal or Olin's Brow. It would make sense for it to be a long route, at least double the length of an interarch, say 25-30 LP. Another option would be to place Mala below Viridian, with an attachment off Oasis.

In the case of a name conflict, what happens if the first has been dormant a long time, but less than 2 years? Can the account stuck with -east wait a few months for the main one to reach 2 years of inactivity, and then claim it?

As for renames, it's been discussed on the forums recently, and enabling it is a horrible idea at any price. Allowing -east players a one time rename is fine, but allowing anyone to clear a bad reputation for 100k will do a lot of harm to the game.

I really wish the devs would find a way to merge pirates of the same name on the same account, instead of leaving two pirates, one with an east or west on the end of it.

My merge proposal. Red routes indicate new inter-ocean routes.



This isn't a terrible set-up of inter-ocean routes for Huntage, but I agree that the routes are probably too frequent and too short. I would keep just the one from Alkaid and the one from Barbary. I would also move Hunter up a tad (or Sage down a tad, depending on how you want to look at it). The northern route could be Wissahickon to Alkaid or possibly Hinga to Alkaid if it is too long from Wissa. The southern route could then be Barbary to Hubble's Eye. The routes should probably be in the 6-8 LP range.

This set up puts the least populated/utilized large islands of each ocean (Barbary, Alkaid) at the end of an inter-ocean route, hopefully promoting activity at both of them. This also puts the main economic/population centers of each ocean (Admiral, Aimauri) fairly far apart from each other, hopefully keeping things at least a little spread out on the new super-ocean that is being formed.

Also, as has been mentioned, please increase the hearty list limits again. Not sure why limits are so small as they are, I had my hearty list maxed out on Malachite with 150 players online at peak hours, let alone on these new super-oceans that will be at 1000 or so at peak hours.

Out of all the oceans it had to be Viridian? ><

EXACTLY.

My name for it:
Meridian
Because it's a word, and it's appropriate.

They probably won't take my suggestion, though, due to my irate comment in the Hunter/Sage name box, since I don't care too much about that one.

I think it should be just the opposite, especially if the goal is to eventually have the new servers seen as one big ocean. 25-30 LPs would make an artificial barrier to moving ships across that distance, which would only serve to segregate the existing oceans, at least in some ways. I don't see how the new ocean is served long-term by doing that.

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

Oh, and I definitely like the map that has been put out there for the Hunter-Sage merger. At least in some form. I like multiple connecting routes that are shorter in distance. And connecting from Alkaid on the Hunter side puts that under-utilized, but rather nice, arch right near the center of the new larger ocean.
