@pithyrumble i will never understand your way of thinking. yes inherent risk…but again if your on a sloop solo or 2 man and a brig or galleon pulls up and destroys you its not your fault…your at an immediate disadvantage…they have more fire power, more people, etc yes you mave a sliver of a chance to take them down…like 1% chance…and sure you could head in the wind and try to make it to an outpost…but more likely than not your going down…now if your on a brig or galleon with full crew then i would agree with you 100%. however seeing how the majority of players are on sloops…this is a great
I do Solo slooping about 95% of the time and i have raised up Emissary flags all the way up to grade 5 on my own. I have never felt the need to have a mechanic to reattach a flag if I get it back. You know why? Cause most solo sloopers won't be able to reclaim the flag.
You'd have to be either really lucky or a PvP God to be able to retrieve a stolen flag. It'd be such a useless system for a guy like me who would never be able to reclaim a flag from a good galleon or brigantine crew. The odds are just completely stacked against you. In fact, I'll go as far as to say this:
Such a system would benefit bigger crews who got jumped by a sneaky smaller crew, as they can just smash them and put back their flag without any punishment for sinking
See the issue? This feature wouldn't help a guy like me who frankly doesn't stand a fighting chance against a galleon. If they sink me and take my flag, I'm already screwed. If I, however, manage to catch them off guard with a keg, they have a better chance of recovering their flag, and can then go on their merry way, and still continue to earn their extra gold, Emissary rewards, e.t.c. without missing a beat.
No offense to you mate, but this idea isn't good, doesn't help out a solo slooper like me, and wouldn't help the majority of my kind. It only serves to benefit crews who can recover better from being stolen from. I don't want to be rude or anything, but I will call out a bad opinion, and unfortunately, this is one.
