I think it'd be awesome to have ariship pvp battles between guilds. Not just within a ship, but between ships. Ships would pull up along side of each other for boarding, people would shoot and cast spells across the gap, people could fall off, it would be all sorts of fun.

Also there could even possibly be great ideas like, options at the helm where the ship could be slowed, sped up, or turned in combat. Perhaps new armor plating and weapon eplacement ameneties like rail crossbows, ballistae, small catapults, or mini cannons. And if we want to go really wild the ships themselves could be given health bars and armor. The repair skill would be useful in combat for fixing the ship and like normal pvp, some things like firewall or other spells either wouldn't be allowed or could harm the people on deck but not the ship itself. Ships could lose speed and maneuverability based on damage, tons of other fun stuff.

There are dozens of other ideas that could go into this, and for those who love pvp, this would be a whole new dimension to it! Inter ship capture the flag for starters would be sweet.

Let me know what yall think.

I think we shouldn't waste what would be a HUGE dev time investment to do what you want on PvP. This is not a PvP game. There is no point in PvP in this game. Teh majority don't want dev time invested in PvP. When devs have given PvPers exactly what they claimed the wanted in the past those features ended up pretty much unused.

No to PvP development.

That is true. PvE is more important and I don't play PvP very often. I was just a cool idea for those who enjoy the PVP aspect.

On the other hand it could make PvP less pointless or time wasting by giving prizes such as guild renown, extending of airship amenity timers, or temporary discounts on airhsip amenity prices.

its a cool idea that wouldn't work in this game due to the horrendous balance towards pvp. i liked the brawling area in guild airships idea but thats not other thread.

I enjoy PvP'ing sometimes, but i agree, this is not a pvp game and i am satisfied with only having the brawling areas.

I think all PvP should be moved to airships, and outta the taverns.

For me this is very cool idea but... no for PVP but for quest!

Special RAID for guilds only :) We must fight against some flying pirates, and take down their ships. We can aboard them, destroys by using turrets ect ect.

Great idea for quest, but I don't thing that developers will bring this idea alive. :(
