World of Pirates Beta

Open beta testing for World of Pirates is now underway. Here's the story on this upcoming seafaring MMORPG:
You will be a captain who will increase his abilities during the game - e.g. fencing, shooting cannons, trading or navigating. And the plunder travel is worthwhile: Among nine individual upgradeable ship types like sloop or war galleon over 100 cities and numerous quests awaiting the courageous explorer.

I'd much rather they do it that way, to be honest

With big-publisher mmo games, there's always a huge push to get it to stores for some release date, so they can be advertised and pushed to meet some initial sale quota, and then the publisher no longer gives a damn about the game (not always, but often)

This way, there's not as much of an up-front distribution cost, so hopefully they can wait until it's more polished and complete

Yeah, could be a gameplay > graphics game. Frankly, it had better be.

Well... normally I would agree... but these graphics really do look over 10 years old. Sorry... but even if the game was beyond addicting... I didn't spend all the bux on my rig to play something like that.

Hell... even modern consoles do way better than that... so it can't even be considered a 'wanted title' for a console port.

Definitely not monthly fee material.

What about the raping and plundering? Any good sea-dog worth his salt loves to rape and plunder.

Crossbone said it best:

Me? I'll stick with Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates http://www.puzzlepirates.com/

IMHO, No other MMORPG has as much good teamwork built in as Puzzle Pirates!

I'm really confused why I'm even playing this game, but as I have nothing else to play atm and I'm waiting for Pirates of the Burning sea, this game seems right up my ally. But it's just so pathetic... The only thing I enjoy in the game is firing my cannons. Sailing between ports seems really unbearable, especially over extremely long distances. I just fire my cannons the whole way.

I guess if there is no subscription charge, some people may play it, but...

"While the great seafaring nations like Spain or England making alliances or are at war you will rival in sword fights and thrilling sea battles with other human adventurers."

Hrm.

Oh, according to the FAQ:
"After the beta test, everyone can download the client for free and test the game for a while. Then after some time you have to pay montly for access to the game server, but more exact information is not available at this time."
