I like the old islands better, but i like the new weapons. I would really like a new ship which i hear could happen in the next few months. but the thing i want most is a pirate flag. What good is a pirate ship without the colors flying proudly

Im pretty sure everyone would probably have the same flag if they did add them...

rofl i remember when every ship had a figurehead! that was so awesome back then lol. Personally i think the game back in the day was better,because those were the games Golden Years and ALOT more people played, now the people who play are just plain out rude... but thats my Opinion.

I wish the game still had the old islands, permanent music, and yes the figure heads and holes in sails. But with a twist, the updates keep coming in as they do now.

BAD:

*passing through people ( no AFK pushing )
*can't shoot holes in sails
*can't see people on other ships in PVP ( that was SO FUN )
*can't shoot masts down after using grapplers
*can't shoot the captain of NPC ships ( or even see them any more ) while grappled
*The weapons upgrade quests are completely obsolete now and a waste of time. What they need to do is change the quests so that instead of getting a useless weapon, you get a new SKILL that can ONLY be obtained by doing the quest.
*Taking out the empty Kings and the hidden cave was a mistake. It was an AWESOME place to play capture the flag and other games that we make ourselves.



GOOD:


*WEAPONS AND CLOTHING DROPS!! Totally the best thing they have done for us mastered pirates!!
*Some quests were updated ( more needs to be done here )
*Raven's Cove is awesome, and Smash is a challenge
*I like the IDEA of the fleet, but the rewards are too wimpy and makes it not worth the effort ( I'm looking forward to the QAR, it's been fun on test )
* Invasions... are totally awesome .. but I think it should be limited to about twice a week. ( just my opinion )

I may add more to this list as I think of them.

Well, I started in 2008 so I don't know about the 2007 game, but up to now I guess there are some good things like invasions, drops, and the higher levels.

Personally, I think it got worse as you became a higher level. Things just got too easy. I miss the thrill of being level 20 and going to (old) Tormenta and killing a level 30 dreg.

That is true, I also liked going to Isla Tormenta when I was a lvl 20 with my friends and we would take out lvl 40s. Good times,good times.

I have noticed many pirates that have been gone from game, for quite a spell, returning & having a great time.

This is true as well. But how many of them still think it is fun?

A perfect example is a person in my guild who has not played since early 2008, he had maxed everything when he left but I am a higher level than him because the level cap back then was 30. He was truly amazed by the the changes they had made to the game, and said it was "Like a whole new game". It is kind of weird thinking that you can master a game, then come back three years later and have to relearn it.

lol... if he had come back at the level 40 cap, mastered, then come back at the level 50 cap, he could have mastered three times! cool

lol... 2007 is my current amount of health.

I think this game is still a baby. The game has progressed but by very little stuff has been added to gain a lot of attention from the old players. Almost all the new things added the past year have been broad ideas and nothing specific. I think Disney needs to make polls by emailing players or some other way to ask what ideas to add and what to remove. Like Kat said above on the BAD list, Most of that we weren't asked if it would make us players happy to remove/replace. One thing that has remained same and is very important is skills and i think players NEED to have some new permanent skills for all weapons.

Long story short, The game has remained about the same due to the fact that a lot of things were removed( like see people on other ships without asking player's opinions and didn't make players happy), added new stuff(like bosses and more weapons which made some players happy), and replaced some of the old things(like remodeling the isles which is not really progress and didn't change what players think about the game much).

It is better now. Better weapons. Better clothes. Fewer crashes. Bosses. You can sail forever instead of having to watch the timer and you can repair your ship in the middle of the ocean.

But I miss the old islands. I STILL get lost on most of them and have to use the map. And the players seem much younger and very rude. I had a Level 50 steal my rep while I was leveling grenades a couple of days ago. That NEVER would have happened in the old days. Level 5 noobs learned to behave from Level 35+ players.

Ah, well, the only way we can change the social aspect of POTCO is by getting a better mod team...
