    Then I started hearing some really shitty stories about the current owner.  IIRC there were some ethical concerns with payment, subscription cancelling... something along those lines.
    Well it's F2p so those stories; even if true, shouldn't worry you.

    Was just on a couple of days ago.  World map looked pretty quiet on Roberts, but Antigua had an upcoming Port Battle and a bunch of area's in unrest so there's still action going on.

    I played it heavy when it first came out, but it's become a secondary game for me.  Something to jump on and do some sailing and ship sinking on my lvl 50 or do some of the quests on my lvl 36 alt.

    There is, but less than there would be if you started at level 1.  As an lvl 80 you could go back and do all the quests just to see the storylines.

    As an lvl 80 you now have access to the Raid Finder, Raids in general, World Boss is easier, various solo or group dungeons, the different villa's in Tant's Noble District.

    The real problem is unless you've played your character all the way up to lvl 80, you really don't know what you're doing.

    Last night on Chat they were talking about one of the Raid Finder runs that must have had a bunch of new auto 80's in it.  The best quote was:  'looks like a bunch of headless chickens running around'.

    I will say Thank You Funcom for the Anniversary gifts, especially opening up the old (2008?) Anniversary Dungeon.  Always nice to run something new (to me).

    Very much a game where more is better.  What we'd start with, 6 servers?  Didn't take long for that to go to a steady 3 (I think).  Had a good run.   Now it's just 2 servers, and except for the rule you can't have different nations on the same server (in your account) they'd do well to combine them into 1.

    Great game absolutely fantastic.  Only major downside is the game doesn't deal with wind direction very well.  So any advantage one would normally have with wind doesn't exist in this game.
    I don't know, it is kind of interesting how the wind can go 180 out while in Open Sea, but if I attack with it at my back than that's how it will be when it shifts to the battle map.

    My biggest complaint was always how HUGE ships could go faster than the small one's.  'Don't send that frigate, let's send the 3 decker!'.

    The old O forums used to be filled with the back and forth on the games flaws, but we all loved it.

    Naval Action is an updated version of it. While they say it isnt its almost identical. Other than it doesnt have avatars. Its all ship battles.

    Problem with that game though is its 40 bucks and its early access. But a few people play it. Lot less than used to though.
    I've had 2 different players tell me that after trying Naval Action people are leaving and coming back to PotBS.  I guess it's a bit too realistic and the nit picky stuff gets in the way of the fun, plus as it's all ship action you can't break it up by doing ashore missions like PotBS.

    Beautiful looking game, but $40 vs F2p that I'm familiar with; welllllllllll........
