I have moved on to other games, but still love and admire how POTCO did ship battles, wish my current interests had similar action.

Too bad this game was not nurtured by Disney, it could have been so much better.

Anyhow, my condolences to all ye pirates out there.
Its sad that the sun now sets... on POTCO.

Take all ye can! Give nothing back!
Good Times, Lots of Memories... it really is unfortunate the turn of events which lead POTCO and the other games here.

Had the Game Division and the Parks Division got together for 1/2 an hour, anyone could see that they could of expanded POTCO into their Pirates Ride and had a massive business opportunity - but a chance lost...

Had Disney just provided the expansions earlier than they did - it might of been a savoir for many left during the almost 2 years it took before any real expansion came - another chance lost...

The Game Division never did grasp the concept of Free to Play and make money with add-ons, not to say I support this, but many others have done it and people buy it up - too many chances lost...

So many chances, all gone now

So I sail the Vagrant Executioner thru the Caribbean one more time, just like I did when I first got her many years ago, sinking thy nasty Navy Scum, them ETC scoundrel, and the Undead... as soon, we'll be in Davy Jones' Locker

To friends and those I have met through here, a toast of Grog to you and hope that one day we sail again on an ocean - as Pirates...

Drink up 'me hardys! Yo-Ho!

Perhaps, just perhaps, the news I saw this very morning on GMA [Good Morning America] by Nick Watt will not bode well for Disney. A new film called Cellphone [not sure if the title is correct] is growing in popularity exposing how such devices, all sorts of mobile devices, are becoming more of a nuisance in our lives. A certain backlash of their use is growing. Not good for a company that seeks mobile apps as the way to go...moving forward.

In other words, best keep our online games for a little while longer!

Very sad news indeed. Although for the most part I can't say I'm all that surprised. There hasn't been a decent update for over a year now. I know Disney has a lot of responsibility, so I respect their decision to close a game for the better.... if what they said over the phone is true about another company taking over.

I still have no plans to log back in to the game. I will, however, try to get back with the community on here (as I know I have said a million times). Since it's been stated that POF will stay open, I will do my best to communicate here.

Nevertheless, this game was one of my best childhood memories. Through the rough waves and calm seas, it was always fun. POTCO has several memories that will be left in me 'ol treasure chest.

Doubtful. Not banking on them whatsoever. They're simply saying that so you can feel better about the situation. The down right cynical view would be that they're saying whatever they have to say to get us off their back and get lost. They're happy to move on with Infinity whose sales are doing fairly well.

Unfortunately, the game never stood a chance. The game was released in 2007, around the same time Disney bought Club Penguin and started diverting resources to that game. It was more of a sponsor for the movie than anything. I enjoyed the first three years but with no new content it's hard to stick to a game.

It's nice to see old mods and admins returning to say their farewells. It's a shame the game wasn't looked after better.

Oh, gee. Seeing Sarah, Max and Zep again under these rotten circumstances is very saddening.

While not a shock, this is lousy news.

It may be a lost cause, but here's a lonely little petition - if nothing else Disney might be persuaded to sell it to someone if they see enough interest. Someone who would actually allow it to achieve its potential.
