roaming around the seas looking for PvP. Spending say 6+ hours a session a day at times during the week...
and yet other players seem to always find PvP players within 5min of login at the Outposts....and they dont want Pvp
Feels like a drag trying to find PvP at times, can take hours upon hours finding a worthy opponent.
Define "Worthy" because I dont deem anyone worthy if they dont have Loot to fight or defend for. Meanwhile..everyone without Loot seems to attract these PvP and they sink them regardless of 'worthy'
by far traditional server hopping is the most efficient in finding willingly targets.
Or not hunting, just play the game as you said before, collect treasures and wait....Dont hunt.
wasting hours upon hours trying to find decent fights is de-motivating over time...
Single minded players who only want PvP. Meanwhile the real dedicated players who do PvpvE are still having a blast with no need to quit because one side is pity.
Sorry to say, the average player is a ''bot'' that cannot defend a boarder if their lives literally meant it...
Try not boarding for once, the ship combat is much more engaging. Until you disable there mast and pull up beside them, then Board.
As much as I love the PvE and story of this game, I have completed FotD over 100+ times, done countless world events, PvP is the thing which I am liking the most as of lately, a lot of experience to be had...
Commendations completed? Achievements acquired? How about that Shrouded ghost?
some players seem way to lax and give up/scuttle on the sight of a PvP encounter and complain how it's toxic
Only if PvP offered me a reward. Non loot carrying players I dont mess with or care to fight back and risk my own or nothing else. If both ships have nothing, I dont pvp because it pointless fighting with no end goal other than to "be skilled" at a skillless game.
So far. PvP has no reason to be engaged with other players who aren't seeking it or want it. As you mentioned, maybe some rewards/commendations would help?
Or those will be ignored and left in the dust for those who still dont wanna do them.
and reading all this, As many PvP players Ive noticed, do the same thing. Sink ships because they are bored. Meanwhile...Im still working on FotD commendations (since Im not part of any dedicated discord or alliance stuff) and Im basically an casual gamer who just, plays.
