Test Has Been Shut Down

I learned of it this morning, Mates.

If you try to log in, it will accept your access and proceed to load but shortly thereafter it will crash. Then it will open a Bug Report.

The link to download Test has the message as well with Play grayed out.

All we have is Live. Take as many screenshots of your last journey with your pirates. When our memories fade, those screens will remind of us of once was.

CarribeanThunder is a pirate wannabe
Yeah, I also saw that Test was down. It's a shame, too, because my War Frigate, the Shadow Cobra, was actually a Fortune Hunter, unlike on Live.
I'll have to strive for getting the Live version to Fortune Hunter.

Oddly, our last act of Testing is just that: Launching a closed game.

Still cold how they didn't allow it to stay open for a few days after the dreaded announcement of yesterday. They just ended it immediately. Where's the love? None there I reckon. The disdain is evident for us to see.

Only last week, Tuesday, August 13th, at 10 PM EST, my second Test Pirate, Billy Warmonger, finally defeated El Patron all by himself at Notoriety 31. No crew bonus, no glitching, no hacking, no alt nearby or at all in game. You get the picture. Just that dude versus my pirate. Oh yeah he summoned his buddies too. My pirate fell once but came back from jail to defeat him for good.

Its something I discovered on Test last year with my first Test Pirate. I told my closest friends but did not demonstrate how I did it. I suspected that somehow that knowledge would leak and every player will then do it. And that happened last year on October 30th. I had just reported someone for using God-mode and there I was wanting to prove something to myself. My first Test Pirate, Davy Darkwalker, succeeded on his first attempt. And to cap it off, it happened on the eve of POTCO's birthday.

I have those screenshots. My Bro even tested it out and succeeded as well. Those were the moments that made the game extra special. Not all of them were captured as screenshots. This game is a virtual relic. A world that once was. Take those screens like a tourist. Enjoy it while it lasts.
