Post Well, it's officially over now...

Well, our favorite little world in the Caribbean has now officially gone dark.


Where were you when you closed it for the last time? Did you see the end?

I stayed deep within the catacombs of Padres Del Fuego to spend my final moments with Jolly Roger.

I had thought of spending my last moments at Tormenta. Instead, I ended up at General Darkhart with my brother. It was there when I first got my fame ever, the Seven Seas Cutlass, a couple of years ago. My brother was able to get his first Legendary, Silver Freeze, from there last year in late July. I had just gotten my first Summon Chicken potions a couple of days before during a Boss Battle to celebrate a friend's birthday. He was Basic at the time which made it extra special that his first and main pirate got a Legendary. I didn't. No matter how often I played, it didn't happen. I didn't redeem those Legendary codes either for El Patron or Barbossa. Just wasn't right for my main pirate to do.

And so there we were with Perseus and Pegasus. I activated that chicken potion while Per activated his Super Flatuent Fizz award. We laughed so hard listening to all those sounds and seeing all those green odors liven up that Undead area. We even managed to complete that Father's Day quest together in those final moments leading up to it. Per's had just expired while Peg still had his. And yes my chicken flapped his wings too.

And it was made sweeter by the fact that I pirated my last with that same laptop I used when I first set sail in 2008.

I wasn't even on the game when it ended... I have to say I don't really feel anything still except disappointment. Time to move on I suppose... It was a nice 4 and a half years playing this game

I gave all the jails a thorough inspection the last time I was logged in. Sad that I won't be able to anymore, but there's always a bright side

After defeating Jolly one last time in an invasion, I jumped on to the Victory Shark with a bunch of my guildmates and friends alongside me, and we sailed off to the horizon

I myself spend the last hour hanging out with the McRaging guild and some of the people who worked on the game, which made for some really interesting conversations. Then I watched the final fireworks from my very first Light Sloop the Shadow Fish (I'd never had the nerve to delete it) holding the sword I got from the El Patrons quest so many years ago, which I found was fittingly named the "Bitter End".

But then when the game didn't shut down on time, I wound up sailing on Eric Mcrage's ship one last time, and eventually we landed on Cutthroat Isle, where the game eventually ended without warning, but I was still clutching the Bitter End, to the bitter end :P

Before the moon came down on Tortuga, I spent the time behind the bar in Kings Arm. And I continued standing there at the counter hoping one of my favorite customers will appear...

I had to say goodbye to Orinda. Loved that ugly wench..




After seeing the masses on Port Royal I needed to go sail, so I did.



Then I spent the last few minutes in game making it to the end.




Fair Winds Mates. It's been a wild and crazy ride.

Spent the last night on Tortuga. Spent most of my money on clothes. Had 86 cents left.
I then danced the jig with many pirates on the shore and dock of Tortuga. Dancing, Talking and being merry and sad at the same time.

I then set sail on my ship "The Dark Revenge" and set course off the map and away from the islands. (I Videoed it and put it on youtube)

NOW, BRING ME THAT HORIZON !!

We're devils and black sheep, and really bad eggs,
Drink up, me 'hearties, YO HO !!!!!!!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one, Sarah. No, I didn't bid Orinda a fond farewell. She were always a fearsome homely, timid wench, and never a favorite of mine.

But I did feel the need to sail to world's end.



A perverse aside - I always thought it would be funny as heck if, when you sailed to the world's edge, you'd find a big, neon Mickey Mouse sign, with a waving mechanical arm, next to an equally gaudy neon sign that said "Eat at Joe's" with an arrow. Just my weird thinking.

After that I sailed back to that sweet spot - midway between Port Royal, Tortuga and Devil's Anvil and just watched the new game day unfold. I saw brave ships out there plundering until the very end.

I'll give Disney one thing - they rendered a sky like nobody's business.



Sarah - I saw you, and Sven O'Smythe (Svenny!), and Kat O'Hara and Frank Hardy and others online there towards the end. I was torn. I kind of wanted to shout out to all of you but I also just wanted to experience it alone. I went the selfish route and just stayed at the wheel of my ship until it was over.

But I've got to give it up to those pirates on Abassa - in the final minutes that server was still full. There must have been some kind of party going on there. Way to go out, me fellow swashbucklers! They were partying like, well, pirates over there!



It was beautiful. I've taken more screenshots in the last week than I'd taken in my entire 6 years playing the game.

I don't know whether to curse Disney or bless them. What a great experience, but how bitter to have it slip away.
