Excerpt: "...as the community of the pirates - the Brethren of the Coast. If you decide to go for a country - you get to choose between Naval Officer, Privateer and Freetrader. The pirates on the other hand have a choice of Bucanneer or Cuthroats. Despite the names all of five character types are quite capable of running out the guns and leading bloody sword fights on the enemies quarter-deck. Set up is easy. character face and clothing allows characterisation, ...
Pros: Interesting concept with a player based economy, lots of quests and player vs player PVP
Cons: Population imbalance can mean that some nations are almost impossible to play .
Conclusion: If are looking for a game that needs more brain than speed and you don't have to play 16 hours a day to be a part of, this has got to be it!! The game is Beautiful I think it has the right balance of crafting (business),Roll play (Arr ye gets ta fight the French and Spanish) PVP (fight the French and Spanish ) And The ships look like ships and even act quite like them. A game for adults maybe more than kids.
A Ok game, but with many bugs and limited lifespan

Conclusion: Ive been playing the game since beta, into pre-boarding and now launch. Yes, at first its fun, new and a change to your usual MMO. However, after many missions which look and feel exactly the same - shooting ships in a similar fashion 100's of times, you can imagine that it starts to ware off.
Conclusion: PvE although it's there is just the same thing either sail around looking for enemy ships and try to avoid PvP area's or do the same boring quests until you reach max level. Ships graphics look ok but land based look they come off an old PS1.
Conclusion: i have been playing this game since 7th jan (yes i did the per boarding thing and got it 2 weeks early) i have had some major lag issues with this game and got next to no help from the official support team. what i have learned from this is besides they support team are useless, is it make no difference how good or bad your PC is it can work fine or lag like mad for you and there seems to be nothing you can do about it.
