Tales of Pirates: Post Launch Interview

MMORPG.com's Joe Iuliani caught up with Frank Yang from IGG to talk about IGG's recently officially launched game, Tales of Pirates. Yang is the Product Manager for Tales of Pirates.

MMORPG.com:

Has the launch of Tales of Pirates shown a growing Frank Yang membership, or is it just the same members who are playing other Frank Yang games?

The launch of TOP stands for growing Frank Yang membership specifically in TOP and overall. Although some players have come from other Frank Yang games, most new members are new to Frank Yang as well as TOP.

MMORPG.com:

Does the launch of TOP have any effects on downloading or game play?

Frank Yang:

There hasn’t been a big effect on downloading. Players simply need to download the latest version of TOP, Paradise Found, which was released along with the launch of TOP. The new version will offer players more fun because of its new content such as Sacred War, the Rebirth system, the Marriage system and the Study System.

MMORPG.com:

Who are your particular target players for Tales of Pirates

Frank Yang:

We mainly aimed at North America.

MMORPG.com:

What are kinds of character personalization?

Frank Yang:

Players can personalize their characters with many different items. They can have different hairstyles and change their appearance with all kinds of decorations. All of these will make players unique in the game world of TOP.

MMORPG.com:

Will the casual players be able to stay competitive in Tales of Pirates?

Frank Yang:

We all know that there are no athletes that can win a competition without any training and exercise. But it’s not all about competition and PVP in TOP. Players can still enjoy the game by exploring the game world and making friends here.

MMORPG.com:

Will there be any stronger “BOSSES” that require relative several players to defeat it?

Frank Yang:

Yes. We will just list two BOSSES here: Players need to send a guild to defeat the Black Dragon on Summer Island. Players also need to send an armada to defeat the Prehistoric Giant Octopus, the most powerful critter in the sea.

MMORPG.com:

Are there many sorts of PVP in Tales of Pirates?

Frank Yang:

Yes, the different kinds of PVP are as follows:

  • Argent Bar: Players can PVP each other at the bar in Argent City to obtain honor points from combat.
  • Maze: There are three big mazes in the world of TOP, the Forsaken City, the Dark Swamp and the Demonic World. Players can PVP each other in these PVP maps.
  • Sacred War: It’s a battle field between two different factions, Navy and Pirates. The Soul of Goddesses will appear in the winning side’s base after the battle ends.

 

MMORPG.com:

Will non-paying members be at a disadvantage over those subscribers who spend more money in the Item Mall?

Frank Yang:

Not really. The Award Center offers non-paying players an opportunity to obtain items in the Item Mall and compete against these subscriber players. Players can also use credits instead of mall points to buy items in the Item Mall. Players can exchange their reputation that they get from the game by training disciples for credits.

MMORPG.com:

How can a free online game compete against those pay-per-month games?

Frank Yang:

As a free online game, the advantage is that players have no limitation to join the game. Players have a choice to decide whether to pursue the extra service and experience or not.

MMORPG.com:

Free MMORPGS are on the rise. Are you worried about Tales of Pirates being considered the same as other Frank Yang games?

Frank Yang:

All Frank Yang games have their own style, especially TOP. Different systems strategies and different ways to play the game, these will make all Frank Yang games fun and unique.
