Which Update made the Biggest Impact on the Game?

Every great update brings something new to the game - a new challenge to face, new horizons to explore, and sometimes, it may even change the game as we know it. Compared to the beginning, this game has undergone a lot of changes - but which update, do you think, has made the biggest impact on the game?

I went through the old News Articles and compiled a list of the updates that, per say, made the "biggest splash" in the game - now, it's up for you to decide which one made the game what it is today.

(The poll was, for some odd reason, not put up, so here's that nifty list I had made

- The Black Pearl Boss Battle - 5 Votes
- Avatar Customization/Emotes
- Weapons/Clothing/Fortune Quests - 1 Vote
- Privateering
- Island/Cave Redesign
- Jolly Roger's Invasions
- Expedition Fleets
- Notoriety/Weapon Cap Increase
- Inventory Release - 4 Vote
- Raven's Cove Quest
- Scoundrel of the Seas
- Other (Explain)

I would have to say the Black Pearl Boss Battle. Because that completed a cycle that most of us waited while a lot others just left due to the incomplete quest. Besides that One Chapter keeps many (with lower level/new pirates) with something to do other than hanging out and plundering/leveling.

The Black Pearl ....although the quest was too long (IMO)...the anticipation did build....and it felt awesome to complete it. Especially after you get your leadership button. Makes a Pirate feel good to see his ship glow.

I agree. The Black Pearl Boss Battle. It is the culmination of the first chapter.

Boss Battle. It's definitely a perfect example for battles, and if this was used as a practice run for future Bosses, then they did well. Except that they made it easier. Then they just screwed that up....

And just because I can, I'd say Invasions made the second biggest, with Fleets coming in third.

The Black Pearl Boss Battle is definitely the most significant part of the game, but I wouldn't say it's the best update. It's really always been here since the game started, and I would have to say Weapons, Clothing, and Fortune Quests has kept a lot of players still in-game (mostly the weapons).

Not technically - the Boss Battle was constantly being taken in and out of game, until it was taken out for a few months until it was re-released.

I'm thinking inventory for some reason. I think that really made a huge impact.

I was thinking that the answers of this poll will vary accordingly to the time the start to play the game.

Also, (even though I completed my Black Pearl Boss Battle at level 28) many pirates do not even care about the Boss Battle, and I've seen many high level pirates who aren't even close to finishing. That's why I think the weapon expansion was a better update for Disney. But, (this isn't a choice) bringing the ability to create and join a guild was also a big update to this game.

I think that even though I didn't like it as much, the weapon releases were the biggest impact. I guarantee a TON of people joined/stayed in the game, solely to loot.

Boss Battle. It has made the biggest impact in the game, and people still do it for fun.

The boss battle was an update? I always remembered it being part of the game... since January of 08. But even in light of the Boss Battle, I still think that the inventory was the biggest game update. Face it folks, it really changed the game. Going from 4 different weapons in every category (Besides grenades, which had and still only has 1) to dozens per category, finding treasure and weapons from land and sea, weapon quality, clothing drops, ammo drops... it's so monumental it even beats a boss battle.

Many pirates prefer to level before doing the Pearl Quest. My first pirate did the Pearl quest first, but since then I level first. It seems my pirates are much stronger and it makes the Pearl easier to finish. That said-it's really difficult for me to choose. I imagine the weapons, inventory expansion, & "Scoundrels" are my favorites. But can't narrow it down more than that.
