But that STILL doesn't change the fact that I had just gotten a ship that I'd wanted...can't remember what it was...was a special deed from a turn-in at Tortuga...Didn't want to drop the deed there, wanted to take it to the port I had a bunch of stuff I was saving for it.
Immediately after zoning into the open sea, I saw about 4 ships heading towards me...I was screwed...Bam...Battle...I couldn't combat 4 ships on my own...and I had the wind against me. Needless to say...I was sunk...and lost that shiny new deed.
From the time I docked at Tortuga, until the time I left...it was clear...Between the time I checked the map for the red circle, and the time I loaded into the open sea...it was turned into a PvP zone....
I liked how PvP was setup there....but the Death Penalty was a bit much.
I am not against DPs....just not a fan of losing everything because I died.
