The devs at FLS have been busy lately by not only releasing an extensive av-com revamp but have also been listening to their players & gathering data about the economy from a wide variety of sources.

The Pirates of the Burning Sea economy has always been one of its best features which enable players to produce most things including ships necessary to maintain the push in RvR (realm vs realm) that is the key to winning the map.

This new package is designed to streamline production to promote distribution throughout the game & auction houses so that the economy becomes less gated by closed eco-societies.

All in All a very good move to get manufacturing back up on its feet so that the less eco-minded PvP players have a constant supply of good ships.

New content like port governors has been slow in being released but this is a welcome addition that will make for a more popular balanced mmo where the excellent ship combat has already been nominated by as one of the most innovated years features in any mmorpg.

So they're making the economy more generic to deal with lower populations and trying to adress the lack of profitability in making smaller ships.

Lame.  A major selling point of the game was the diversity and uniqueness of the economy.  They dumbed it down because of low server pops and too much gold from running pve missions.

RvR is trademarked by Mythic... Interestingly enough, they used it anyway to describe their PvP.  I wonder if anything will happen.

@ Lame

Totally agree that the economy was a major selling point but it was promoted as a PvP game so this stimulus package will make Potbs as originally intended so that players don't need to spend so many hours in the economy.

I might have given this game a try but I can't get past their business ties with SOE. Meh, everyone has their hangups, I suppose. :D
