Blackwake

Recommended Posts

For the heads up the Blackwake price has just shot straight down on steam, currently its no longer £24.99, its gone down to £14.99 and is on sale on steam down to £13.49, I can't say what local prices are in the Euro or Dollar but I would imagine similar savings and a price of around $20.

its 18 dollar/euro for the first week and after it, its 20 dollar/euro

Kickstarter price was 20 dollar

was always planned to be this price.

 

But its an awesome game, its a long time ago that i had so much fun in a game.

And that for only a 2 person Dev team

For the price yeah. But can't roll it longer than 2 rounds in a row, that's how repetitive it gets at the moment :)

Hopefully there's more game modes coming but i'll hold my breath. Also the lack of wind dynamics was a let down.

Overall it is good for fast food type of fun.

Ah okay, it was definitely  £24.99 on steam last week when the thread was first posted, which is why I put it in my wishlist and didn't buy it straight off. Perhaps it was just more expensive on steam which has now been fixed :)

It is good for historical setting ego shooter types then :) not open world historical setting fans.

True story, captain'ed a schooner for the first time. Did superbly good but was target of a mutiny due to favouring maneuvering and grape rakes rather than boarding....

Still need to try being captain once. :)

A few times I've pressed the mutiny. Some captains are really bad lol.

I bought this game a few days ago and played it for a few hours.  It is worth the $18 I spent on it.  While I will probably never log as many hours in this game as some other games, like NA, its fun to play.  It is definitely a more funny less serious type of arena game.  I like it. 

P.S.  I just checked and it is still on sale, so get it now if your going to get it.

Its indeed not a game for 1k+ hours like NA

But we are a lot of the time fully manning a ship with people from NA and then the game is so much fun

Managed to play a good solid hour in a RP server. There were no juvenile sexual innuendo / "my grandfather was a good fascist soldier" type of ship names, no shrieking on voice and everyone was in a good mood taunting back and forth. It was highly competitive and with a lot of shooting and eventually an all out boarding with all ships crews fighting aboard the two galleons locked in combat with the Pirates in closed quarters defending the gun deck like badgers holding on to their honey combs, was nice but the ping tells with the cutlass spam :)

Definitely looking to perma-death option for servers ( and still hope they enable wind as an option ) and will stick to RP ones for now. fun factor is definitely a 9. longevity is not more than a 3.

Final word on Blackwake: Bought, installed, played for 17 hours, deinstalled.

Those games should be free-to-play in early access. But, well.

Was worth the time I suppose. 20 Euro spend for some 20h fun.

Ha Ha.

Best captain. I never did this.

You need a TOP GUNNER sruPL??? I am good at fast speed firing at the low deck.

My accuracy never drops below 80%.

Problems the other crew member.

They steal too often the guns I loaded....

 

Tell the others, you got this game from the nicest person at Naval Action!!!!

Cheers

W.

 

 

I need to reconsider my review on this game.

It is better than I thought. 

 

You just need to look out for the right server and group of people,

Also, on the forums are organized events.

Thanks for the game @Wilson09 :D Will be cool to get a full crew for Blackwake from NA players for example :P

god. maybe then we would actually have a crew that knows their aft from their fore, and can tell me what he starboard and port is. It drives me crazy sometimes, when i say go to port side, and everyone asks what side is that. ugh. shotty land dwelling lubber lards at best.
