Make All Flotilla Sinky Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I was wondering what people thought about having ALL BK flotillas set to Sinking?

Non-sinky flotillas are simply not attractive enough and they are sometimes difficult to load (larger vessels) when competing with SMH, especially with the current population numbers.

I wait for a Thursday Noon GT for flotillas to drop and sometimes I am left a bit disappointed when no sinking flotilla spawns, or any flotillas at all.

I believe if all flotillas were set to sinking, it would spice up the ocean a bit.

(Also why has Barnabas the Pale not spawned in almost 10-11 months?)

I love flots. I keep missing them as too tired. Leave 1 non sinky for people to practise but i would say they should be sinky

You make a good point!

Perhaps Admiral Finius can remain as the sole non-sinking flotilla, whilst the others become sinking?

I have personally fought for years to get 2 extra sinky flotillas ...

Change isnt simply gonna happen on YPP anymore ... 5:3 is already a good ratio personally

Allows the non sinky flotillas to drop on islands aswell so more blockades the merrier!

+1 from me to increase the Sinky flotilla ratio


 

Non-sinky flotillas are simply not attractive enough and they are sometimes difficult to load (larger vessels) when competing with SMH, especially with the current population numbers.


With the current active player base, loading any kind of flotilla would hog 1/5 of the current active pirates at any given time... good luck filling a non-sinky flot without actually losing poe in the process!

Additionally, having some other incentive that is exclusive to Flotillas that could benefit all would be great. Convincing others to come for just plain poe and a chance at non-naver trophies is simply not enough motivation for some.
I understand that its been suggested in the past. But flotillas are a great way for players to get involved in some high paying fun without purchasing a badge.

Anyway, sorry for the rant ahaha.
This post has my vote for making more sinky flots!

Yes and yes and yes!!

With the minimal players we have now, we usually only run sinky anyways. I think they should make them all sinky or at least double the amount so you don't have one option to get to on the entire ocean.
