Or sail as fast as you can to the nearest non-privateering island and dock ASAP.

Twice now I have been sailing between Cuba and Port Royal and I have seen a blackish shape for a half a second before it blinks out. It looks like a small fortress taking up almost all of a volcanic outcropping jutting out of the water.

That does not seem the right place for a new island. Is my imagination running rampant or something? Is this a ghost of an old island?

(Since Tortuga and Port Royal were both south of Cuba, the geography of POTCO is highly suspect anyway, so it is as good a location as any other, I guess.)

rofl, I think I saw it too when we were last crewed together Crimson. Maybe I'm wrong. I simply thought it was a bug because Port Royal was missing altogether. I kept seeing it pop out several times or blinking as it were, and it never corrected itself after we landed. It's fine now. I'll log in shortly to investigate this mystery. o_0

On topic, SvS is no longer great. Yeah sure we have Infamy Points to gain, a couple of quests to complete, and a rank to show off our achievements every where we go, but truth be told, it's time for POTCO to fix it by putting it in a separate server. Once they do that, then they can add a third island and perhaps a fourth. We don't need it in normal servers anymore. It was great to see, when it first debut, all those Spanish and French sails. The only way to have a different sail was to privateer. With ship customization finally out, those privateering sails lost their luster as pirate ship after pirate ship are hoisting their own colors. And it's no mystery as to why the lag becomes incredibly horrid when SvS happens, even on a quiet server.

I loved what POTCO has finally done and await, like many of you, to see what the Grog is for. Having all PvPs, including SvSs, in separate servers is the next best move imho. I understand if you all like it 'as is'.

I like the idea of a dedicated privateer server. I'd also like a new nation or two. I'd go with the Netherlands. Dutchman "pwnage"! Portugal would be a good accession too. I oppose the addition of England; the Royal Navy is already part of many aspects of this game.

Earlier I heard about people wanting to go out any island on any server and sink anybody. Won't work well for people just going and looting, then loosing all their loot. Or the lower levels won't ever level up on sailing much because the war ships always come for them. Imagine you just got your first Light Sloop, your excited for just entering the game and wanting to see Captain Jack again. You come out of Port Royal, and you get a fury broadside and you sink. I bet you'd be thinking ' Man this game stinks. '

LOL reminds me of when I started playing. Had no idea I'd be attacked by a Death Omen I can only imagine the results of letting players attack each other outside of PvP/SvS. Another idea I had about privateering: what if ships had to be boarded like flagship. Now, I realize the obvious drawbacks, but it could be interesting. If attacking crew wins, it behaves like normal flagships, with the crew returning to their ship. If defenders win, I don't know. It wouldn't work to let them take the attackers' ship, since you respawn in SvS. Maybe defending ship survives by virtue of salvage? Probably to complicated for PotCO, but a boy can dream.

A lot of us keep dreaming and isn't Disney THE place where all ours dreams come true? Sorry if you're hearing the tune like I am right now lol.

They can put all things PvP/SvS in a separate server. The ocean itself where the duel will happen can look different and should really along with the size itself. That ocean should be considerably smaller. Even the islands will get an extreme makeover along with the rules. For example, when you privateer for one of them, all your pirates on that same account can only privateer for that country for 24 hours straight. It's quite ridiculous to see players switch to the winning side so readily when playing SvS. I also highly doubt players can do the Bounty Swap anymore either in this new environment.

I can see two whole new nations involved for a total of four. Singapore being one of them that's for sure. Each one would be located at their own corner of the map. The free for all battle can take place in the middle. No need to put some silly invisible shield around each vessel anymore when docked. Instead the shield walls off each territory. Must pass through the shield to engage the others. Can't use your territory to shoot safely from behind the shield either. aww

However, the new shield drops during special event moments when a nation is permitted to invade the territory. I honestly see more dynamic play in such a new environment. I can see boarding one another's ships as well. During a Muertos Moon I see players walking underwater and doing battle there. It really has potential. And how I wish upon that star to make it so...

I found something that would HAVE to come with an update such as this, or some people would get so mad. A guild war server, unlimited soldiers, possibly prize money. Is they don't want riots in potco making more people quit, I advise that they let out both at the same time. Though it would demolish peoples ego, causeing them to quit, it don't look as bad as six guilds quitting rather than one.
