My buddy and I were slooping while in a discord call and there was an active fort right next to us. We sailed right over and began clearing waves, but before we finished, a friendly galleon showed up and joined our alliance (we left the flag up by accident). Now, my buddy and I weren't going to be satisfied with 50% of the cut, so we plotted to sail away with the key. We killed the captain, left the alliance, and managed to escape while they were still confused. Apparently they weren't too happy with our betrayal, and they chased us off. We sailed into the wind, so they fell behind after a little while. After about an hour of trying to lose them and make them give up, we decided that it was pointless and so we sailed behind a rock and scuttled after hiding the key. We started to do voyages to kill some time, and every so often we checked for the galleon. Sure enough, they stayed camped at that fort. We fought them several times out of boredom and got sunk every time. This repeated for 4 HOURS. After waiting for so long, another fort popped up. The galleon was last seen sailing towards the second fort at Mach 12, trying to make a return on their poor investment of time. My friend and I collected our key, got our loot, and sold it off. We ended up making around 17k from voyages and the fort combined.
Now for the actual discussion part.
Why would you wait so long just for a fort key? I mean, yeah, 10k gold might be a lot to some players, but you could easily make that much doing voyages. What is the incentive for waiting that long? Is it for the easy money? Is it so that you can kill them repeatedly? To me, it seemed like an attempt to defend their pride. But in the end, everyone loses for wasting their time.
