I don't mind all the new currencies that have been brought forth. But I would like to be able to use them towards a discount in the premium shop. For example I want to purchase the Cossack admiral 2 pack. But it cost $117 Canadian. Why not use the Guinea much like the coupons in the arsenal to give you a further discount. I understand economic on the other end and everyone needs a paycheque yada yada. But a player is very limited and I am more frustrated that if I want just the basic Cossack. I can now buy Guineas in the shop and not earn them towards getting a free Cossack sort of speak. You get combat mission cards to play when you purchase the English crates earning you a free ship after you have completed the requirement. Which I think is great. The whole all or nothing buying option is a little frustrating and would be nice to have a chance to discount the purchase price of ships with the constant evolving in game currencies. We have, coal, copper, steel, coins, dubloons, molybdenum. It's just getting to be a very suffocating money grab of which I really like this game and I'm funneling way to much money into as I am a relatively new player.
The flip side would be to just not buy and self control. I realize that. But why should I be limited in such a manner. If the somewhat very little skill I have doesn't earn me any significant chance to get a new ship or upgrades it is very frustrating.
I think we would like to see a more uniformed and refined entrenched economy is this game. With the principle that skill gives you a greater discount on the ultimate goal you wish to achieve and finally be able to spend your hard earned money to purchase what you wish in the game.
That's what I would like. Anyone else have anything more to add would be great!
