Looking for pirate or maritime MMO

LoktofeitLoktofeit Member RarePosts: 14,247

To go through what I've played so far:

  • PotBS - turned into something I don't care for.
  • Uncharted Waters Online - felt sluggish to me and didn't care for the UI
  • Puzzle Pirates - pirate themed and liked it but looking more for a 3D experience
  • PotC - I genuinely thought it was crap.
  • Tale of Pirates - liked my turtle boat and the cute graphics, didn't like just grinding levels
  • Voyage Century - seems to get pricey the more you want to get into it

Looking for:

  • owning a ship (or several)
  • crafting of ships, gear, etc
  • PvE preferred, but PvP is okay, too
 
Game doesn't even have to have ships/sailing as the main focus, just have it accessible by mid-level or lower.
 
 
What MMOs are out there that match or sort of match what I'm looking for?

    I haven't played any of these but managed to come across those. Good luck!

    I know you can craft ships in wurm online.

    Vanguard had ship building at some point. Anything I know about it though is years out of date.

    You've tried most of the major ones, that I know of.

    ...because it was a piece of crap. ;)

     

    Damon, I think I'm going to revisit Vanguard. I haven't tried the boat building or sailing there yet. Thanks!

    No crafting, but Pirate 101 is still the best pirate themed MMO out there.

    if you have some extra SC lying around you can purchase one of the basic ships in the store.

     

    that is if you are not morally opposed to such a thing.

     

    otherwise, building a ship in Vanguard seems to be a pretty cool and intense community experience, so immediately join an active guild, there are a few believe it or not. last i heard Twilyghte Songe (sp?) was still fairly active.

    just another thought. i remember being told that DF1 had ships. if DF:UW also has them you could actually be a pirate in that the game is FFA PvP with full loot.

     

    i am not a fan of that playstyle, nor have i ever played DF in any version, aside from a quick trial that was unplayable on my machine back in the day.

     

    however, you could conceivably build your own ship and then raid costal towns or villages or even keeps i would imagine.

    Aspekx, good point about the guild thing, and thanks for the suggestion.

    My tip

     

     

    Assasins Creed 4

     

    Not an MMO but it seem to have some of the nicest ship action in a long time, and it might have a sea battle multiplayer part.

     

    Beyond that i think you are SoL.

    Uncharted Waters Online. It think its on steam also.

    As mentioned Darkfall: UW has ships. No idea about the details though it was a few months they upgraded it with more ships.

    Archeage has ships again no idea bout the details.

    I know its not pirate themed (or even out yet), but you did say Maritime MMO.. so i'd throw  World of Warships into the ring.

    It's still in beta I think,  as far as a western release goes, but ArcheAge has ships and even a pirate or lawless faction you get put into after enough piracy or murders or something like that. If old single player games are an option then there was a game published by Bethesda/Zenimax for the Xbox called Pirates of the Caribbean. The movie tie in was just slapped on and the game is the usual Bethesda tier of bug ridden mess but the sailing and ship combat bits were just awesome.

    On the XBox I used to play The Legend of Black Kat. It had a multiplayer ship battle game I enjoyed playing with friends. If I could find something like that for PS3 or PC, that would be great. Free Realms has a cool ship battle game, which is really fun against other players but you end up mostly playing against NPCs.

    Will keep an eye on ArcheAge.   Thanks!
