Best island?

Was writing a comment on a blog post, and began to wonder what the 'favourite island' is. I've put down all the main islands, plus the three old islands.

My favourite island would have to be Raven's Cove, as it's very atmospheric and a lot of fun. Haven't played the old islands, so I'm hoping for a Nostalgia Server. :P

I only remember the Old Tortuga slightly... because it was the only island I ever got to see when I tried to play back in January 2008... But from what I remember, it was a pretty awesome island. I voted for Old Tortuga.

There are very few things that have ever made me feel more magical in this game than the first time I ever looked out over the hill leading up to Fort Charles.

I voted Old Port Royal.

My all time favorite island is the Old PDF for one main reason... Cliff Diving. I do miss the old one, but the current one ain't half bad.

I remember having a special feeling when I first started playing. I enjoyed running through the old Port Royal, and going for the long run up to Fort Charles, and there was a place in the town I would stand and pose with a Cadet that never attacked...

This is a hard decision to make.

I've seen all of these, and I like the Old Islands more than their current form. I do miss the Cadets walking the streets of Port Royal... but I'd have to say the Old Padres is what I miss the most. (including the caves and the old Las Pulgas)

Although I am perfectly fine with the new islands, I still have a heart for the old ones, and Tortuga was one of my favorite places to be.

I remember little of the old Las Pulgas... but Old Padres del Fuego by far. Why? Cliff diving. You can on Raven's Cove, but the cliff of Padres was much higher. I also like the layout a bit more, with the town off on one side of the town with Gunner's Shack, Beckett's Quarry, and Fort Dundee on the other.

Old Port Royal is a close second. The Cadets patrolling were nice (why'd they take them out?) and like others have said, the hill leading to Fort Charles was quite amazing. I remember running up to Fort Charles as a level 2 and running in fear as I got chased by level 10 sergeants. Good times.

Lol, now that I think about it, if they had a weekend in memory of the old islands, that would be real fun, and the players from the older times of POTCO would probably feel the same way.

Old port royal was my fave old island, (I never went to PDF before I quit for like six months) the hill was my favorite place to go, good times. they should have kept fort charles that way. I spent most of my time sailing, not much on the islands. I miss the old sailing graphics...

I don't have to say much about that devil, or Jolly-forsaken island. Doing the quest makes me jump to the shore near the boats. The most horror and so close to death times for any pirate would be nights in Raven's Cove. Only place to be safe at night- Crazy Ned. I never got a chance to see the old islands, however i wish to. I wish i could have seen these island's map buffer at the least now. Any chance you guys know how to still see these islands?

I voted for... the Boiling Bay aka Padres del Fuego. Closely behind is the devilish island of Raven's Cove.

I voted for Raven's Cove. I love the island; it's probably my favorite. The music is somber, the setting is desolate and eerie... I especially love the island at night, when the music changes and you can hear the wails of the Rage Ghosts.
