Pirates of the Burning sea has often been praised for its original ship combat or massive potential & deservedly so.

There have been those that want to play it again but need proof that things are moving along & to see promises fulfilled.

Since release in Jan 2008 there has mainly been a series of re-vamps to existing systems but no major content updates with the exception of some daily missions & the like. Despite The CEO's Rusty's comment that FLS remain fully committed to Potbs additional in game content has been extremely slow in arriving; in the meantime FLS have engaged in a new project of setting up their Casual Division which has at the very least diverted attention from Potbs. The lead designer Isildur has not been well last year & now rarely makes any comments.

As a result the promised land or potential of Potbs has so far failed to be realized & players are tired of delayed or broken promises.

Let's take a look of some of the public forum comments FLS have made last year!

 

Q) Any plans to increase advertising?

A) This is what Aether (& now Rhaegar) now spends most of their day on, yes

Q) Any plans for an expansion?

A) Yes, in discussion the details are still TBA

Q) Will treasure be introduced?

A) It's on the list.

Q) Any plans for PvP port av-com?

A) I wouldn't be surprised if this is something we did. It's not actually "on the list" but the list for "how we improve RvR" is very incomplete.

Q) Can we have diplomacy as a free skill?

A) Maybe. In discussion

Q) Ever going to add buy orders?

A) Maybe. It's a feature we favor.

Q) When are you adjusting the Lineship Bundle mechanism to be more interesting and useful to our players?

A) Expect info to go public in a month or two...

Q) When will port governors or the vital missing eco sinks be arriving?

A) The first step will be the ability for players to make av-com weapons no ETA on the rest.

Q) Will ganking be reduced?

A) Yes, Whilst we may never eliminate it longer term we’re going to make ganking go away.

 

To be fair there have been some improvements compliments mainly due to devs Snap & Lum but I could dig out a lot of other FLS unfulfilled comments so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that progress has been dreadfully slow. As it only now takes about 2 weeks to reach level 50 players tend to lose patience & leave.

I sincerely hope that FLS will eventually get the above more in-depth content implemented & can hold on to some very limited populations in the meantime.

This is likely to be my last blog entry for some time & has also been posted on the Potbs section of the forum here as to reasons why I no longer participate.
