Me, personally.  I would come back if I could get multiple accounts without paying $50 per box.  They should let you get multiple accounts with the same box (as long as it uses the same credit card).  Of course, gold farmers would be an issue with this.

I'd be even more happy if they added functionality to the economy.  The blind auction house did not do it for me; in the end I hated it.   Take lessons from EVE;  Let players set "buy" orders and sell orders.  Just get rid of the blind auction house entirely.

Also, I think there is no money to be made as a freetrader.  Yes the map is sort of big, but why would I spend all this money on a good when I can take a 15 minute sail to the other end of the map and buy it for much cheaper or harvest it myself.  On Eve, buying/selling worked because it can take an hour to cross just a fraction of the map AND you were vulnerable to PvP in many cases.

Technically I haven't left yet.  I still have a week to go on my free month.  BUT...not going to resubscribe.  Today's server fiasco is just one too many.  Game is too buggy.

Also...it's not fun.   Shooting ships and handling the wind, and different ammo is fun for awhile..but I'm at level 22....I've seen it all it seems.  The end game is PvP?...but that's just a Gank (gang killing) fest, with no reward to do (but lots of loss/penalty if I do)

Game is just unfinished.  Technical issues are just overwhelming.  and...the real kicker....it's all my fault.  It's my router, it's my Nvidia card, it's Vista, it's my Spyware, my Virus protection, my Firewall ...it's bs cause I don't have any problem playing other games...why this one? Hell I can play Crysis for god sake. 

So what would make me come back? um.. fix the game....finish it, get the technical stuff fixed, I would play if for free (ie no monthly subscribtion fee) from time to time cause the naval aspect is different.  But the game is just not finished...not by a long shot. 

I feel ripped off $50

An actual open seas PvP server or at the very least much more PvP without all the crap PvE grinding necessary to get there

 

As it stands now on my server there is one , count it , one PvP circle -

 

They are taking too long to fix that too -

A 'perma flagged open sea' PvP server would be great.

I beat this horse until is was dead and deceased on the FLS forums....lol

No dice...

4-year old bump. Can you place buy/sell orders in POBS like you can in EVE? Or does the blnid auction house still exist? Thanks.
