These guys steal 2 full tradeships in less than 30 minutes. long video but good overview of how this game will not appeal to carebears. http://www.twitch.tv/kalum_rants/b/366495910
It is my understanding that trade packs are all player crafted , resource intensive and to make good money they need to be taken to the enemy lands and sold by ship. but thats where the pirates make their money! I personally love the system.
