The Pirates are beaten and bloody, they are on the run and surrounded by the Nationalistic Fleets supported by their home Nations far afield. Once allies who struck deals have turned now against their comrades. Everyday another Pirate ship falls to the cannons of Privateers and Captains out to make themselves a name. Where once rich ports flourished, they are now reduced to rubble and squalor.

 

The battles of old are almost forgotten. The heroes who pushed back the mighty British and American Armadas have all but vanished from sight. All that is left now are the wrecks that signify the staging points for some of the fiercest naval battles ever to be witnessed. The blockades of Saint Nicholas and Baracoa, Bloody Sunday and the breaking of the British fleet at Jéréme, The conquest of the Americas and the assault on Jamaica itself.

 

This is not what the Pirates are meant to be. Looking back on their past achievements and lamenting the future for there is little hope.

 

I say we fight!

 

Keepers of the Oath are returning. We call to all Pirates now. Gather your courage. Councils will be held; the Coalition will rise again from the ashes and the Dread Fleet will once again lay waste to our enemies! We will show no mercy to those who supported us when we were strong but have taken advantage of the Pirates in our absence. We shall fly the red! No Quarter to be given, no bargains to be made.

 

I call now to those who have since chosen to fly another flag for the safety that it offers. Return to the Black. The time of Piracy and great adventure is once more upon us. Do not settle for what is given to you by your Nations. Take what you want and to hell with the taxes!

This is exactly what pirates are meant to be and I say this playing as one... Pirates were hello kittying filthy thieves and savages. The life of a pirate was most likely the most miserable on sea, except for their freedom. People watch too many disney movies. Pirates were some of the freest people of their time and even had some sort of democracy going but they paid for it by being thieves and murderers that were hunted like animals and most likely lived as such too... 

So when you have pirates in game almost ruined and hello kittyed by everyone, that's how you know it is how it is meant to be ( if by "meant to be" you mean historically accurate ).

I still think pirates should get some special mechanics by the way... still waiting...

Another pirate town conquered by the Empire. 

Despite being attacked by muricans, spantards (yeah, they help making hostility missions with the muricans) and pirates we keep sinking all of them at port battles.

KOTO will be like SLRN, a clan which never recover its past glory. Just give up.

 

Weak words from a weak man.
