A great merge? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Let's be serious. most of the oceans are dead. or have little to no player base.
I think that Puzzle Pirates can't afford to keep all the oceans running. Lack of player base for a new pirate is a serious off-put and would make anyone stop playing the game, With lack of interactions!

Why don't we just merge all oceans into one great big ocean? We don't have to loose items or anything. Eventually the eco will work itself out, And so will standings.
And for the Subscribers oceans, just give them a reward of an X amount of Dubloons for being a Subscriber during the Merge!

If they don't like it ? So what... There's 5 of them anyway? (Laughs)

We need to sort this out! Also... I think a great way to advertise the game would be to get YouTubers on board. A YouTube advertisement doesn't cost much! I've seen private servers from other games manage to afford a YT Advertisement and if we get a decent enough of players from a YT Advertisement = People making YouTube Videos of your game = More members and more population. More voyages and much more for everyone else!

There's a lot that could be done to improve the player base on the game. And I'm not sure if YOU OOO Are making the right decisions to help people get involved in your game. There's money to be made, And ways to do it! If you don't know the correct steps.. Make me an OM And I'll single handed make the game populated again!

If people only read your posts on the forums, no one would want to play the game anymore. If all you are going to do is be a forum troll, at least be good at it.

Less people are playing so I'm doing a good job? I have given valuable knowledge to the forums, yet ppl don't like the truth so not my problem.

Shows how much people have given up on the game. But back on topic, great merge is pointless.

I'm not quite sure if you're serious or trolling. Meridian's economy never "worked itself out" as you eloquently put it and there were massive issues from the get-go. A lot of players actually left after the merger and I think having a game map of that size would be ridiculous. Not to mention that Emerald still has over 400 people on at peak times (which is actually pretty good in a post-Obsidian world), so to say all oceans are dead is a little exaggerated

Don't get me started on your subscribers idea, lol.

 
We need to sort this out! Also... I think a great way to advertise the game would be to get YouTubers on board. A YouTube advertisement doesn't cost much! I've seen private servers from other games manage to afford a YT Advertisement and if we get a decent enough of players from a YT Advertisement = People making YouTube Videos of your game = More members and more population. More voyages and much more for everyone else!


YouTube advertisements are notoriously quite expensive, while it would be brilliant to see YPP advertised on YT, it would be a big investment in something that may not even work in order to get a profit.

 
There's a lot that could be done to improve the player base on the game. And I'm not sure if YOU OOO Grey Havens Are making the right decisions to help people get involved in your game. There's money to be made, And ways to do it! If you don't know the correct steps... Make me an OM And I'll single handed make the game populated again!


There is a lot that could be done, for example, I've wanted new islands to be opened on Emerald (and Meridian) for some time and it would be awesome to see such a thing, especially in the Crab or Canis archipelagos. Oh and bring back double poe/chest weekends again for CI/HS/Lantis/Pillages/Flotillas, because that would actually be really fun and would hopefully get more people involved. but I'm hopeful Grey Havens (who took over a while ago from OOO) have their own ideas.

Personally I think all of humanity should be merged into a single consciousness ala Evangalion. I'm sure if they put up some ads they can get it done.

You both are incorrect and Heres WHY!

OOO sold the game to Sega that do sonic and etc, that's when the real decline of the game happened, then Sega didn't want the extra weight of a dead game so then Grey Havens who are former OMs that do not want to be unemployed, decided to try and keep the game running not save it. If your wondering about Obsidian's existence failing for a buzzkill not a perminate fix, neither the last merge, as it happened in 2012 it killed the stronger oceans which is why were stuck with Emerald. Enjoy!
