"New players will encounter Premium Areas earlier than previously. However, both of the following new Premium Areas will be given to all accounts that have existing characters created before these updates are released to the live game:
Prologue: Part 1—the first Premium Area will be encountered during the Quest "A Good Ship?" after talking to Dockmaster Dan.
Prologue: Part 2—the second Premium Area will be encountered during the Quest "To Jonah Town" just before players dock to Jonah Town."
Yup that's right KingsIsle is cutting on free to play areas. Instead of making Pirate101 actually free to play, KingsIsle is doing the opposite.
KingsIsle also falsely advertises Pirate101 as a free to play MMO. Is quite interesting how greedy a company can become. Is no wonder why people are leaving their games. Good luck with their business model.
