I don't really see a point in adding something like that. All you will see are ships sailing to a certin outpost and just disappear. Also it will make servers a bit of a mess, since people will just join and leave a minute later.
- because it's immersive game design that really fits this game.
- It will let you seamlessly join and fight while in the normal mode of the game without having to quit out to the menus and rejoin with your current crew.
- You could come back to your own server instance. They could lock your ship in a canal and then you sail out when you finish your match. There's a lot of possibility.
- It would be a new area with new characters, and new things to do. Why stop at queuing for an arena match? Why not have a dueling arena for various other types of fights within the server? Why not also add mini games like gambling, target shooting, etc. for crews to have fun with?
It could work if the servers were big and there were enough players at all times, but not in the current condition.
Maybe. If this addition grows the player base like I think it will, that will help, but the server matchmaking def needs work to better fill up servers.
