Ezi buff and figureheads swapping

    There is a question we'd like to discuss with our community, especially with those, who are active in naval pvp.
    As many of you may know, in pvp battle players can receive an ezi buff. This buff gives you a chance to customize ship and swap items on it for 45 seconds.

    Recently we received the complaints on the abuse of the game mechanics by constant swapping of figureheads that is possible under that buff.

    We want to know what players think about it:
    • That's fine and that's not a problem or abuse.
    • No, something needs to be done with it.

    If something needs to be done, what do you suggest?
    • Remove the possibility to change ship equipment under ezi buff.
    • Reduce buff duration from 45 sec to 15 sec.
    • Buff gets removed as soon as ship receives any damage.
    • You have another idea (don't suggest adding cooldown as it will not be technically possible).

    Suggesting a cd when the last part said:
    I'd say either the reduce buff or the removed when receiving damage. In the latter scenario, you'd have to move to a safe location to do whatever you wanted to do with the buff, and then go back into the melee, or risk losing the buff. In the first scenario, gotta think/act faster.

    Keeps full functionality of ezi buff to swap things out of combat while adding a counter-play to hotswapping
     
    Aglarond, Sjaaktrekhaak and Aviendha like this.

    Its fine, the pirates already use macros to jump up 200 meters so we gotta level the playing field

    Ezi light works just fine and has been for a long time.

    Pirates constantly cheat and macro then complain when they lose.

    Feelsbadman, when pirates cry about Figurehead swapping because they can't do it. But when it comes to dry docking they won't complain because they can do it and block boats LOL

    This is just a clever use of game mechanics to spice up PVP, I see nothing wrong with this.

    It wasn't allowed on live but it should be allowed here? Why? All these PN names defending it when it shouldn't be a thing whatsoever.
