Puzzle Pirates

Alright, before you criticize its name, I suggest you really take a look at this game.

I used to play it a few years back, and I have to say it's the best MMO I've ever played (granted, I've played a LOT of unknown and known MMO's). It's basically a mixture between a sim, an RPG, and a puzzle game. You start out by choosing your ocean (server) and customizing your character. And of course, you start out in lowly rags with nothing but a foil. From there you start out on any random island (which are all player-governed, with player-run shops, stalls, and businesses) and are able to walk around and visit the various businesses. The whole "puzzle" idea is really just a minuscule part of the game, and is used for fighting and activities. You're able to join, or create, a crew, buy ships of all kinds, buy and sell businesses, own a number of different pets (from dogs to elephants, to monkeys that sit on your shoulder), and even buy yourself a house (ranging from a shack to a multi-room mansion). After years and years of playing I eventually led a crew as a Captain, bought a mansion, and bought myself nine different ships (even a Grand Frigate), all of which I still own. Unfortunately I never did conquer an island (considering you'd need about seventy ships to do so), but I did have a chance to war with many different crews and even establish my own flag and become a King.

As for the puzzles, whenever you go to do an activity, such as swordfighting, drinking, sailing, or anything of the sort, you do it through a puzzle, which, in my opinion, is a lot more fun than watching your character simply slash away turn-by-turn, or even mashing your keyboard hotkeys at rapid fire. And it does involve high-stakes Poker at the taverns.

It's a very extensive game that has really gone under the radar and been so underappreciated. Although I haven't played in a while, I suggest to anyone who favors a good overall game that doesn't keep you sitting at your computer all day and isn't graphically demanding (neither ugly), try it.

If I become a bit more motivated to play again, I probably will, seeing as I don't wanna leave all of my items behind. And for those of you not interested in paying your actual money for a subscription, go with a Doubloon ocean so that you can earn your way through hard work. There isn't that large of a roleplaying community, but it's certainly possible to do so within your own crew, which is what I used to do. And the game certainly gives you the support to roleplay.

And what game doesn't? And how are puzzles childish? Last I checked, most people don't play games to get the most mature experience out of it. Had you actually tried the game, you'd realize it's insanely in-depth and worthwhile. I'm assuming you didn't even bother to read my post which explained how puzzles are barely a factor in the gameplay. If you play MMO's simply for blood, gore, and senseless fighting, don't bother posting on this thread.

Great game. Recommend it highly. Sure it's quite simple on the surface, but when you get into blockades, tactics, alliances, filling ships up for blockades, defending, running pillages, it gets complex and is very very interesting. I normally play it ever now and then for a few weeks.

I don't see why people consider it a child's game. It's probably the most inventive, complex, and creative MMO's. Not to mention a lot of people I've played with seem to be pretty mature. You're more likely to find kids playing games that don't seem childish, like Rift and WoW, because they usually don't get to, and because their childish inhibitions of slash-and-kill makes them.

Yeah, back in the old days it was much better, because they were actual people that played, now-a-days most people use hacks or bots, especially in high staked poker games.

Anyone still into this?
I may start playing again.


And to those who say it's childish, I can honestly say I have never met anyone on this game who claims to be under 15 and I have even met people who are married with children. I know, they probably lie. But the point is, the types of 'puzzles' or mini games they have on here are actually really clever as well as being mathematically and intuitively challenging for the brain.

I've actually been thinking of playing again, since I've got a lot of shit and I don't really have time for other games with classes and all. I'd love to play me some Puzzle Pirates to pass the time in boring lectures.

What ocean are you playing on Angrenost? And what's your pirate's name?
I've started playing again because of this and the puzzles are way harder than I remember... I guess I'll just have to practice 8)
