Why even make threads and ask for player opinions if you're just going to ignore everything thats said by the people who actually go out to the content?

Tuesdays Kraken is gonna be lit in terms of player attendancy.

I like the idea with Luscas. PN cannot block people from doing these.
6 Ink Sacs each Kraken. That should flood the demand to the point it becomes more affordable to people. 10K a sac is still 60K for the group getting them but its cheaper for those looking to buy.
If PN decides to hoard sacs and not sell them outside their group, they'd be damn stupid or stubborn as it will only decrease in value even more with 4.0.
They're sort of forced to sell them now once nobody in their groups needs one anymore which should happen fairly quickly.

Though you could've just left it untouched til 4.0 as a whole.

I'm sure they listened to more than the 20 PN players that wanted to secure their chokehold on progression of the rest of the server and were spamming that thread with bullshit.

Not everyone in the thread was even PN, and you and your entire guild don't even go to kraken and have never showed up.

In the middle of a dom between a couple of PN1 and PN2 guilds during Luscas, the West was able to be completely strongarmed out of simply getting 5 Luscas kills less than a week ago. Imagine if the PN's weren't actually fighting each other during this. That's going to be Luscas now.

im pretty sure pns will be smart enough to realize a sure kraken drop is worth more time investment then a small chance to get it at the other events and continue to compete over that

then again intelligence can be questionable at times

If luscas have a tiny chance say 0.02% of an ink sac drop, PN isn't gonna go to luscas and risk losing 6 guaranteed sacs during the 20minutes in which they are busy trying to avoid us from getting a single one.

The only reason we (east/west) should be worried about this change is if kraken starts ending before luscas or if the lusca ink sac drop chance is way too high.

They wouldn't need to. We've already seen instances of them working together. You don't think they'd join forces to just take the Kraken with a skeleton crew and send more boats to other content to block?

What I'm saying is, if the drop rate is supposed to be a "lottery-win" for whoever gets it, as in the chance of getting one is tremendously low, then any PN player that leaves kraken and weakens their main-raid to go to luscas only to play the lottery is an absolute idiot.
Luscas with low drop rate is such a tiny fracture of sacs compared to as what can be obtained for killing kraken. PNs are still going to dominate the supply of ink sacs. I don't get why they are so upset about someone else getting lucky for once. I don't see people flip their shit and go around and insult & threaten other players or the devs of this server when they see someone pop a mythic "because he had it handed out for free, and i was never that lucky and had to actually grind gold and go buy one."

This aside, I've seen PN leadership say they don't / very rarely actually sell an ink sac outside their group for gold. It's either handed out for free to people who can show proof they need it, or they get it with a heavy discount.
Everytime a west/east player who supports this change, says the price of an Ink Sac hinders their progress, a PN player comes along and says "hurr durr t5 to t6 makes no big difference, it doesn't slow down your progress at all."

So not only do PN players not really give a shit about the raw gold value of it, as they rarely ever sell it full-priced. But also they know their value in actually using one to gear up is very modest.

So why do exactly these people complain about a soon to happen drop in value of ink sacs ? It makes 0 sense.
Watching PN players get super salty and threaten to cuck Abyssal or Luscas is another funny story. Kraken raids are average of what, 35 people ? Send half the people to Luscas and I want to see how you manage to steal every single lusca tag and gain dps superiority for drops. With how large of a radius the luscas spawn, I doubt any of this is doable and just a massive failure of a threat.
Sending 1 or 2 Ships with Eternal Cannons to dps Abyssal is the only cucking they'll ever be able to do, or if Kraken ends early and they all show up to Luscas. But that wouldn't be any different from now cause that's already happening regardless of this change.

I'm just here to drink Player Nation tears. Carry on.

The solution spreads PN too thin to get them all. That's hilarious. They will be forced to go for the big pot (stay at Kraken), try to spread themselves between the big pot and the small pot (Abyssal), or try to spread themselves between all three. I love it.

But Muh Free Farm Content NoooOOoOOooooo

Oh, and alliance with East incoming or some other such nonsense because the game can never be left alone without trying to control something somehow.

Although this will make the duopoly PNs have on Ink Sacs require more effort to maintain, this will likely just serve to eliminate Abyssal / Luscas as content for non-PN players. Kraken spawn time should be changed to match Abyssal spawn time since PNs will likely show up and just rape everyone else at these events now to have even more Ink Sacs in their coffers.

They can't. The fact that you could get 6 from Kraken means that it's likely Kraken will get more contested, too. And PNs can't risk someone winning something they currently control. That would mean a loss of control, and the narcissism is way too strong.

Not only more contested, btw, but kraken ink sacs basically spawn at RNG within 40m. If they're not careful, one or more could be snatched and stealthed away. Which is also hilarious.

I'm sure they'll take it out on East/West by dominating Abyssal / Luscas every night. They REALLY hate losing and will go to extreme lengths to end changes to their routine. Just look at the 2v1 against Budget PN.

like OP stated they will prefer krakens drop over a lottery ticket drop, the moment they send members to the other events they would only weaken their fighting force in the kraken event, im pretty sure the leaders of both pn realize this and are clever enough to see the same thing

they would only show up if kraken dies too fast wich rarely happens the average kraken raid is 4hours or so so they wont be able to control this IF they would be able to control this then they would welcome this change because it would yield them more ink sacs the reason they cry about it is because they CANT control all of the events at the same time if kraken doesnt die fast enough

bob marley - no worry

most of the comments stating that they will destroy the other events are just fear statements
