FLS gambles with risk free Skirmish PvP

It''s long been a wish for FLS to introduce a Skirmish system as an add on to give players a form of risk free no loss fun PvP for those that don't enjoy the existing high risk red zone PvP.

Skirmish was delayed due to a dev leaving but FLS has now employed dev Snap who has been actively coding PvP changes & has now got the clever Skirmish system up & running on testbed ready for release in the next patch.

The system allows for all nations to join in risk free combat at anytime which will be particularly helpful for newbies to learn to PvP without loss which has a steep learning curve.

I think this patch could spoil regular PvP but only at first. Once the people get confident in their skills they will PvP in normal realm vs realm..

A lot of the new people playing are younger players & FLS seem to be making moves to add more video game features in the future. FLS have failed to hang on to many of it's regular subscribers for various reasons but modern internet players perhaps play to a different style.

They are an impatient lot & don't like losing the stuff they worked for. In Potbs it can take a long time to build a 1st rate Sol, kids want it now, when they lose it they leave the game. I know its sad but true. FLS has to change for the new market which is now more youngsters playing the game. Kids don't like spending a lot of time doing the things this game needs, They want instant action, this patch will provide that for them.

I don't support youngsters playing these sort of historical 1720's games as they tend to ruin them. However I love this Age of Sail game and in order to play it FLS needs to make money sometime. So with that in mind I will support these changes in order for me to keep playing.

These views were from a poster on the FLS forum which I agree with; I hope Skirmish will be a success but there is a danger it may not be used, the proof will be soon realized. writes:
