Can you board a players ship, kill the captain (owner or driver), and hijack the ship?  All the way to unspawning it and keeping it for yourself?

Yes you can board a players ship, kill everyone on board, and hijack the ship. But eventually the ship will despawn, and when it does, it goes back to the original owner in a damaged state, and the original owner will have to repair it to make it sea worthy again.


But hijacking a ship can be worth it, especially if the ship is carrying valuable resources.


Here are some videos of people hijacking ships and stealing their goods.

That's no fun.  I guess we get what we get with a so called "sandbox" game that really isn't.  I can take the ball away from my brother but mom (developer) is always there to give take it from me and give back to him.

The cry of people that got their ships stolen would be way way bigger than the cry of people that want to steal ships

Want an example? just look the reception to some 'pvp-friendly' features that this game has and the housing thread, people want the most themepark-ish experience they can get out of a sandbox

 

This is why I despise the mmo community as a whole, they just cant decide what they want

Or the fact that most sandbox MMOs are made for PvPers and not PvEers,

so changes like that gives the sandbox fans who aren't into All that community destroying PvP elements, can finally have a sandbox game for them. Why you want to ruin that? I just don't get it.

why not play one of the hundred other sandbox PvP focus MMOs if that's all you care about in a sandbox, and leave AA alone.

If you want a PvE sanbox, Minecraft is calling.  PvE defies the very definition of "sandbox" by restricting and limiting what it is you can and can't do.
