OOO tweets: new LE ship Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I would have never have read this tweet from OOO if OOO still hadn't fixed their ISP problem, but I think a lot of players (especially players that run SY and apoth stores) would be interested:

We will be issuing a new limited edition ship later in September.
Here's a snippet. Speculations?


Note that I don't think OOO wants you to speculate here on the YPP forums. OOO is only interested in speculation from twitter users.

Can I tart a bit now that I'm back home and the - at least for a moment - server/ISP issues seem resolved? How nice would it be to have these tweets and posts be posted on the forums as well or would that just be useless? I know the latter applies when they're down and in general, the forums are more or less unstable but why not post it here as well when possible? I don't personally have either Twitter or Facebook and rarely really check the News-department on the noticeboard.

I guess I'm just one ancient barnacle for not following all the social media, and not doing enough to be updated with PP stuff? Maybe my headache is making me too pissy and seeing something complaining worthy when it actually isn't?

There would have been no point to post on forums since they were down.....I personally could not reach forums consistently for the past 48 hours so having updates on it wouldnt have seemed logical. You can see the puzzle pirates facebook page without liking it if you made a fake account. You can see the twitter page without even signing up to twitter.

Nice. You contradict yourself in the first two sentences in your post.

You don't need to have to forums available 100% for it to be useful to supply information about the problems. For things like this LE ship announcement, the only reason why it wasn't posted here also is because OOO is lazy and is more interested in putting on a good general public face than informing their player.

Yeah, I'm aware of all that (hence why I posted the bolded part). That wasn't my point but the feel of being neglected - you see, it's not the first time in the history of PP that things are posted somewhere but not everywhere even though it would make sense. I am also aware (and in the past been defensive about it in advantage to Three Rings) that they have limited resources and not every single little thing works well in every media but still. I just wish for some more communication?

Meh, maybe I just want too much. These little things are things that add up and make it all feel so sour. Well, usually it isn't something big and bad but a bit here and a little there that makes the experience bad. But I do know the solution to it though, so don't really know why I'm whining here.

Sorry I meant to post I could not 100% reach the forums in the past 48 hours if thats what you mean by contradicting myself. Do they usually post about LE ships on the forums vs just the notice board?

I can definitely see what your saying :) I wish they would communicate better with their playerbase, however I'm not quite sure the communication between the OM's, who are the communicators, and the devs, who are the fixers is quite clear. Have you ever sent in petitions about technical issues, or actual questions and noticed they can be quite evasive with their answers? That evasiveness points out to me that there is not clear communication within their own office...

What would be nice if they put in a widget of their twitter feed on their homepage.

It will auto-update with any tweets they've issued, and you can see it right from the homepage.

Edit: there is a link to their twitter page on the homepage, but I'd still like the feed.

Does anyone else think that the new LE ship doesn't seem to have a very cohesive theme and looks like a cross between casino, phantom and rogue class sloops?

More or less. It looked to me like they were trying to get a new LE ship without much new artwork or coding, and ended up with something that was too chaotic. And this is coming from someone who makes a habit of crowding ships as full as I can get them.

Agreed. And I feel like the chaos of the ship is the point, since it's "roister" class. But it is a little overwhelming. :P

The parrots in the rigging is incredible. On my point on the nasty wench figurehead, feast your eyes on these beauties. She looks like a pig and you know it = ) Dont kiss her in your drunken state.

Looked like a casino/skelly/smuggler ship to me, no real theme. I think they could've done a better job on it. The parrots were lovely, though.
