    Good luck Onion. I look forward to sinking...uh, i mean seeing you soon.

    Blame devs for everything

    I wonder...if NA had 3000 people playing everyday - how very different the forums would be, how many issues would disappear and what kind of new rhetoric would ensue. Perhaps we will see one day. Never get 3000 you say? lol I have seen stranger things happen online. Ever hopeful - always Pirate.

    Patch 25: Open world user interface update.

    Im excited about the patch. Will there be things to adjust or correct? I'm sure - but for now, lets see what we have to work with as a testing community. I understand the concerns, but after playing this as a tester for thousands of hours and through many BIG updates/wipes, (and losing my mind on occasion too)...things will work out and the game will continue to be fun. Stay positive.

    Reinforcement zone....lol

    Either do away with reinforcement zone or make it work. NO ONE fears the reinforcements called. Given my personal experience, I dont fear attacking anyone in their zone. The AI called are completely useless...some not even firing or often sailing away. Just thought you should know most people consider the zone worthless as it stands.

    Trade in Sea Bottles

    I think that is one of the parts that make it fun...the risk and adventure. The danger in getting there and back - and the difficulty of getting the right ship there. Getting occasionally caught in a Trader and robbed makes the successful trips all the more sweet. I like the way it is....except the bottles need to be turned up from "virtually never" to at least "hardly ever".
  6. Beware the Headless Parrot

    As his aim is poor when pissing

    Its really quite something to stare at

    as I never said which head was missing.

    Le Requin Testing and Feedback

    I dont like it. Plain and simple. I dont like the way it sails and i especially dont like how much the water comes into play when aiming. Perhaps it will be tweeked into a better ship, but for now, if you gave me another...Id give it way. I am grateful for new ships however and I know some enjoy it. This is not a ship I would want to buy as it stands.

    Name 5 things you would like to see in NA

    1. A wind direction indicator while in port. 2. Double the number of mission cancellations from 3 to 6 a day. 3. Small Fort Towers with 1 long range cannon placed all over the map - can be killed in three accurate broadsides. It instantly regenerates and serves the Nation that last destroyed it. It continues until it is killed again by a different nation. (Devs already have the game mechanics for this) 4. The ability to buy and sell Paint in the port shops 5. A new Treasure adventure. Keep the present sealed bottles and their corresponding wrecks. I mean a NEW kind of Treasure wreck. Perhaps adding a "High risk sealed bottle". The "High Risk" bottles could unfold as follows: High Risk Sealed Bottle reveals a wreck. The high risk wreck contains a treasure locker that weighs only 50 tons and is carried in an enemy AI ship. Show up in any ship to claim the wreck and you are met by the sea demon himself, Davy Jones - always in a super strong matching rate ship (with red sails) and set to be one of the strongest AI Captains in the game. High risk loot can be equal or close to an epic chest in value. The key is to make the risk so great that even a seasoned Captain really has to consider he probably wont come back alive.

    Hurricane Regatta (a post for NON-Pirate players)

    I have been asked a few questions: Question: Should I have more than one Trader Lynx set up for the Hurricane Regatta (a back up)? Answer: I highly recommend having at least 1 back up...if not more. They are not hard to come by - but I would plan ahead. Question: Are there any rules or safe guards to help protect contestants from enemies? The First Locations/legs of the race will not be given out until the moment the race starts. The other 4 will be given out over the next hour in 15 minute increments. This will help avoid a build up of ganking/hunters at the start. In addition, once all locations are known, the contestant may take whatever route they feel is the safest. The further into the Regatta we get, the easier it will be to know where to be as an enemy....and the more dangerous it becomes for the contestants. I promise you this....once the last destination is revealed... ships will be sinking. Question: Can you race in a clan group? Or have sacrificial bodyguards sail with you? Answer: Other than the basic rules that will be formerly announced when the Regatta date is announced, THERE ARE NO RULES. Sail alone...sail with body guards...hec, sail with a huge fleet. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be those first, second and third contestants that turn in the 5 required screenshots. I assure you it will be challenging either way. On that day, there will be Millions upon millions of prize value up for grabs by contestants and enemies.
  10. The Pirate community has a contest coming up after the material wipe. It is called The Hurricane Regatta "...the deadliest race on the water." YOU as a non-Pirate player can enjoy this contest as well. Here is how: As a non-Pirate/ "Enemy player" you will have tons of Trader Lynx sailing everywhere, in groups and alone. That means plenty of chasing, escaping and PVP. Now, to make this worth your time, 3 Pirate Captains (chosen at random) will be "Bounty ships". Each of these 3 ships are worth 1 Million in a Gold Bounty when sunk. So, no matter the number of contestants, 3 of them will be worth far more than a couple of PVP marks. No one will know who the bounties are until you catch and sink one... surprise! Each Bounty Captain will be instructed to declare if they got sunk and by who so that payment can be made. Below is a short post with some news on the Hurricane Regatta: The Hurricane Regatta... "the deadliest race on the water." Hello Captains. The Pirate Headless Parrot here. So, in my last contest for the Pirate Nation, I gave away over 20 million worth of Prizes with the "Pirate Captains Tour Contest". Congratulations Captain Privateer. Now, Im working on another and would like your help. The new contest/race will be called the " Hurricane Regatta " - ...the deadliest race on the water. It is open to any Pirate player of any rank. Every contestant Captain will be in a Trader Lynx (made any way - with any upgrade and any knowledge skill he has access to) and MUST be flying the smuggler flag. Once selected, the date and time of the regatta will be widely advertised and known to all other nations. In other words.....MANY enemy will be hunting you while you're trying to speed from port to port. If you get sunk, get another Trader Lynx, the 5 required items and try again. The winners will be the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Pirate Captain who posts all 5 required screenshots. To avoid out right slaughter at the start, the first leg and destination will not be revealed until the moment the race starts. Subsequent legs/port destinations of the race will be revealed in National chat, in 15 min increments after the race has started to insure that locations are not totally known to enemy players until the first hour is up. This is to help contestants get started and once all locations are revealed, the player can take any route to any location. Make no mistake...you can expect more and more enemy as you near the end of the race. Much like my last contest, a screenshot will be required from each leg of the race. The screenshot must include, the contestants Trader Lynx at (or passing by) the destination port, the port name clearly seen in the background and the 5 items (specified later) in the open hold. There are 5 legs to this race - each revealed over the first hour. Estimated time for contest 2 hours. (will be held on a weekend) The contest will be advertised for a few weeks prior to the actual "Hurricane Regatta" to insure maximum participation from Pirates and their enemies. o7 Captains. Look forward to more updates on "The Hurricane Regatta" soon!

    Tow To Port Changed?

    Tow to port takes you, after a countdown, to the nearest deep water NON-Capitol port.
  13. Headless Parrot

    Repairs are far too powerfull

    The reference was made to new players being frustrated with seeing the damage they did - undone. However, it works the other way too. New players are often grateful for repairs (the way they are) as it helps them survive.

Here is how you can help if you are a Developer or Pirate Player: I am personally supplying a few million worth of prizes, but I would really like to make the 1st, 2nd and third place prizes worth the "Hell" most contestants will go through. So, If you are a Dev or Pirate Player and you wish to donate toward the Regatta Prize pool, please contact me, let me know what you can supply and please be able to trade it to me. I am collecting all prizes for the race and once the date of the race is announced, the Prize donation collection will stop and full prize package will be displayed for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. As we have a partial material wipe happening any day, the Hurricane Regatta will not take place until after the wipe. While we are waiting, please Donate: (no amount too small) Ship notes Gold PVP Marks/ Victory Marks/ Combat Marks Rare Books or Upgrades Consumables Please spread the word to your fellow Pirate Captains/Clan mates as the goal is to have TONS of ships in the contest. That is far more likely to happen if the prizes are incredible....so please help if you can. No amount is too small...(or big). I will try and be on for a while, at least 3 times a day to collect donations from those who can. o7 Captains. Look forward to more updates on "The Hurricane Regatta" soon!

    Hurricane Regatta (a post for NON-Pirate players)

    Yes. That is what I was referring to. Thx DeRuyter. The value and name of some items will probably change. This is why the date for the Hurricane Regatta will be posted after the partial material wipe. That way all references to ships, money and prizes are accurate.

    Thank you to those stating their donations here. Others are also stepping up to support the Pirate community contest (even non-Pirates). The "Hurricane Regatta" Prize Package will absolutely be greater in value than the last 20 million contest. LOTS of fun and goodies to look forward to. o7 all

    Limit missions

    If this game is to survive, we have to stop trying to find ways to go after new players, just because ow pvp is lacking. (limiting safe zones, making treasure wrecks seen by all, limiting missions - all of which hammers new players). We have to provide a way to boost experienced pvp play instead.

    While I agree real sailors carry more, the 1 of each was just an anti-cheat precaution against older screenshots. o7

    Holy Grail of Shipwrecks

    Regardless of where the bulk of it goes....If those who put in the effort to find it are not greatly rewarded, others will not be motivated to seek treasure and those that do wont report their find.
