Limited Edition Ship releases Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hi All, Admittedly I had been away from YPP for some time before my recent return last year but I am as attatched to it as I was in the early days. I appreciate the oceans are quiet and may seem of little use to feed much in but please please please bring back monthly limited edition ship releases just do the same as obsidians releases. For me and I am sure others it gives me something to look forward to and play to achieve, and would make my subscription feel a little more of value than at present. I love the game but I miss this terribly, anyone else agree?

Thinking more of the sloop variety which is more achieveable in gathering the stock and poe required. I petitioned the OM's with this and was responded too really quickly (thank you) with the War Galleon which is available across all oceans, which is fabulous I don't deny but not really attainable for the likes of myself on Cerulean. Disappointed that the War Galleon is available but not the Alice Sloop that's currently up on Obsidian...

the LE ships on Obsidian are all recycled from previous LEs on standard oceans. re-releasing them here, as much as we would like to see some, would make them "kinda LE"

Well, "limited" doesn't have to mean it's a one time thing. I wouldn't mind seeing an occasional recurrence myself.

I can't imagine anybody would be against the idea - has it been discussed in the main forum (I am mostly lazy & don't read that part often)? I would think most players would support it, especially all the completists who want a phantom class wf and SY operators (not necessarily the same thing as SY owners).

Re-Releasing LE ships will destroy there value as collectible items.

Example I have received offers of 1M poe for a few of the LE's I have Skelly War Brig, Smuggler WB, Casino Sloop, Inferno Sloop. I have not idea what the offer was on the inferno WB but it was ridiculously high.

Same goes for Casino WF and others that are rare/popular.

Yes re-releasing them would benefit a bulk of people but the value of the rare item would be lost as people can just wait for the re-release.

Can see this with the Familures and box pets the Panda's were hot, now they are just a trash pet that is very common as they let them out every color under the sun, the rareness is gone.... Yeti's same thing, the decision makers keep hurting those players who invested to get the rare items.

Keeping the items limited a one time release makes them rare and collectible, for example I stopped playing Obsidian as my regular ocean but have logged in monthly and bought every LE ship released, which has required me to buy dubs with real money to deliver them. It doesn't make much sense but if the ocean takes off or becomes the only one I want the collection, if they start re-releasing them the income would be lost and any urgency to make the purchase of the Limited item would also drop the surge in shop/stall business and a run on certain paints minerals ect.

TLDR: I personally don't want the ships re-released as it destroy's the value of the LIMITED product, that long term players have earned by playing for a long period of time.

I seem to recall OOO getting a LOT of flack when the re-released certain "LE" pets. Players said that if OOO was going to put them up for sale every year, they should call them "seasonal".

So, yeah, I can imagine LOTS of people would be against it. Probably not as many people as would support making them available again, but they might care a lot more about the issue.

Aye, I've obtained most of the smaller ones myself (I never had interest in bigger ships, so forwent most of those). Personally I don't mind the idea of doing a sort of flash sale of something that has been unavailable for a long time. They've done that with some pets, I think (and actually those were some pets I couldn't afford at the time, so I was quite pleased to see them again). I get what you're saying, and I get that certain people would be upset that something they have somewhat exclusively is available again. LE ship production/design has waned, though, and it begs the question of how they're going to fill that void, if at all.

Ideally a moderator could move it. (Are you there, gods? It's me, Minsiem.)

This, in a nutshell.

Though to be more precise, not LOTS of people. More than a few, less than some. But they would be incredibly vocal about it, in all likelihood.

It might be possible to get the best of both worlds by having them won as very rare prizes in Haunted Seas. I mean, these are ghosts of LE ships past, right...?
