That's silly, what if a pirate say Woodenleg logs on after the 6 months since they are firmly retired?

if they are firmly retired, why would they log on or care?

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.

agree+++

maybe make it a temporary Rogue mark shoppe addition that is only usable by any pirate with the suffix, and only leave the option available for a set period (6 months, perhaps).


That's silly, what if a pirate say Woodenleg logs on after the 6 months since they are firmly retired?

flawed logic

Then they probably wouldn't mind being named Woodenleg-East, since they are firmly retired. I don't think there's really a need for the option to go away after 6 months, though.

Will there be any way for the players of the oceans to vote as to where the interoceanic routes will be placed on the oceans? Obviously for a Viridian to Mala merge there is going to be at least one arch on Viridian that is going to get the short end of the stick for an Interoceanic pillage route. I think as players we might like a vote in which arch(s) wont get an Interoceanic Route.

How long will the new Interoceanic routes be? I'd like to see red routes with a harder difficulty and higher pillage pay outs with longer than Interarch length but thats just my opinion.

Regarding labor on subscription oceans:

Right now for each subscribed account I get 36 hours of labor per day on Cobalt plus 36 hours of labor per day on Midnight = 72 hours of labor per day.

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?

I ended up going with gemstone names for all my suggestions; Emerald was my choice for "Huntage", Diamond for "Midbalt", and Sapphire for "Viridalichite".

Just putting in my two cents,

Q: What happens with outstanding Doubloon Exchange offers at the time of merge? A: All doubloon and PoE offers will be cleared before the oceans are merged.


Does that mean someone can just come up and screw the dub prices, or will the OMs do something about it?

So anyone from virid can buy 30mill of dubs now for example. Move to mala and get 45 mill+ for them. Leave it in Poe then wait till the new ocean and have made 15mill from nothing. Let alone if they buy loads of coloured fams for like 2poe each or whatever retarded price they are there now? This means people can become twice as rich instantly?

No because the mala dub market already crashed to even with Viridian. Unless someone already did it your stuck with the same amount of poe you had.

I'm wondering how long the inter-ocean routes are going to be, and if there will be any waypoint islands along the way-- either isolated outpost level islands, or even possibly small mini-arches with 2-4 islands. And/or if the cost of swabbying is going to change, given what the cost of going completely across the new ocean will be like.

All in favour of renaming Viridian/Malachite to Viridian?


Aye.

Also, maybe people who are complaining should consider the overall benefit to the playerbase rather than whatever petty economic losses they'll personally suffer.

As a Malachite pirate who doesn't post on this, I just thought I'd have my say in the matter, haha.

My feelings are rather neutral towards the ocean merger (cause my activity levels will probably be decreasing towards the start of the year anyways), as it does have its advantages but I know for a fact that one of the reasons that people play on Malachite is because that it is a small ocean where everybody is familiar with each other, therefore that sort of defeats the whole "community" feel of Malachite, no?

I definitely think it has positives though, such as the increased amount of islands that Mala has been anticipating for a while. Having said this though, as many come on Mala for it's size (which a lot of us do); won't making a huge ocean just defeat the point of the ocean for a large proportion of us?

I do think the ocean merger could be a positive, I just believe that the decision is rather sudden and hasn't been thought through as well as I'd have expected.

Cobalt/Midnight: Sapphire

That's what I went with. Not too sure about Peridot.. but couldn't think of anything better.

1. I don't want my loyalties tested. I like my crewbies on Viridian, but Malachite will come first, and I do not want to lose them to a prior commitment.
2. I don't want to be crushed by Viridian. My crew is number 6, and it'll be number 300 after the merge (approximately).
3. I don't want to be discriminated against. Being from Malachite is cool on Malachite, but some people on Viridian can be complete jerks about it.
4. I LOVE MALACHITE JUST THE WAY IT IS. I love my crew, number 6 in the ocean, even though it's relatively small for Viridian. I love the Saltstraum Rock Inn, even though it's sometimes empty, although it is the most popular one on the ocean. I love being heard and known, having about a tenth of the online ocean on my hearty list, and being a member of that little ocean.

It's not too late to reverse this xD

I'm guessing a lot of people will hold off on selling familiars until the merge is done now.

I went with Chrysoprase for Viridite. I had thought of Jasper first, but jasper comes in too many colors. Did go with Sapphire for Midalt, though I like Turquoise as well.

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.

Makes the most sense. It balances the population levels better than adding either Sage or Hunter to Viridian, and at least in theory, your combined doubloon market should be near where our combined doubloon market ends up.

Why don't they make the map a globe, so top joins to top bottom to bottom left to right right to left. This would make any inscribe arches more active making it a lot easier to move around.

Globe ftw.
