Uniting the Oceans!
Ahoy, mates!

As you may have already guessed from the recent journal entries of Velasco Thorsson, intrepid explorer, we have some momentous news: early next year, we will be connecting certain oceans, allowing you to sail between them!

We've been working on a way to consolidate the game's oceans for quite some time now, and after much deliberation, we determined that the fairest way to go about this is to combine the geographies of two oceans on one server. This means that the six English oceans will soon become three large oceans. Players from both existing oceans will be able to play together and explore the archipelagos of either ocean.

Here is what this means for you:
  • There will be more pirates available to fill ships on your ocean.
  • You will have a massive new area to explore, settle, memorize, and conquer!
  • A larger share of incoming new players will be set loose upon your ocean.
  • This will not affect any of your property. You will keep your home and everything your pirates own. All flags will keep any islands they currently hold.
  • We have requisitioned shiny new server hardware specifically for this purpose, so that these larger oceans will run as smoothly as ever.
  • You can help us name each of the new oceans! Please use this poll to send us your suggestions.
You are sure to have more specific questions about how all of this will work, especially with regards to how we will deal with your pirate's name and other stats. To that end, we've attached a rather extensive FAQ below that has more details on the process, as well as answers to other questions you may have.

We love Puzzle Pirates, and uniting the oceans is part of our continued commitment to maximize the player experience. Today marks the eighth anniversary of the launch of Puzzle Pirates, and we look forward to many more exciting years of new content and pushing the limits of what the game can be! To that point, we'd like to thank everyone for supporting Puzzle Pirates and Three Rings over the years. Your enthusiasm for the game is the reason we do what we do here. There be many more leagues to sail, mates, so let's have at it!
