Just going to be completely honest but Puzzle Pirates no longer has anything fun to do anymore. All we can do anymore is pillage and enter blockades. There are no engaging events up anymore that involve and interest many pirates and those need to come back. Players are slowly diminishing because of the bore Puzzle Pirates has become. I do realize most events like "Booty or No Booty" and "Black Death Tournaments" were run by independent pirates, but hopefully with a few events the OMs host, it will encourage other pirates to start hosting their own events for the fun of it all.

i agree it gets very boring at times, and i personally would also like to see the OM's getting a bit more involved, maybe making more fun competitions or tournaments, or just coming on and doing like a quiz or a scavenger hunt, anything like that, would make a nice change

there is atlantis, HS, CI, vikings, Imperial outposts, crafting puzzles, carousing puzzles, tournaments, and much more. of course if all you ever do is pilly and blockade you'd think all there is to do is pilly and blockade... broaden yer horizons =P.

if you get bored, just go talk dirty to people, always fun =P... even though OMs try to keep it PG, it never stays that way ;).

I never pilly or blockade >.< the point is nobody does any carousing puzzles people only go out on boats to do stuff and thats boring...i want events that are fun. Crafting is boring is just like pillaging but your by yourself...nobody makes any tournaments worth entering....and what i'm saying is change it up a little sometimes...events were what make YPP back in the day and now they are gone hardly existant.

Is that why you get your 'fun' by being arrogant? Someone would say that you're a complete tool but I had to mute you before I got to see everything you said so I guess I'll have to just say good game.

Do something. Don't just whine how this and that is wrong and everything is so boring and dead.

lol ^^^ I'm not arrogant I'm confident, and you're just a hater. Don't post unless its relevant. And to randomact, I'm not a pirate that has much money to spare, so i cannot really organize an event like the pirates that have so much money they don't know what to do with it can.

There's a difference between being arrogant and confident. You're the first one.

I'm sorry to say but it's not up to you if I can post or not. Pst. My post was relevant but in case you missed it:

Do something that creates the fun you're lacking of.

Not all events have SUPERAMAZINGMEGAMILLIONDOLLARSAWESOMESHINY prizes. Look around the events. Ask people. Get information.

No need to use the excuse of not having a lot of poe to spread around.

Well I'm not going to argue on something off topic, but anyways most events do have a prize of some sort, and I wouldn't mind if its as minor as a sloop, i would just appreciate any event that keeps pirates entertained and give them something to do while on puzzle pirates rather than just wait for something exciting that is never going to happen.

P.S. This puzzle is to get peoples attention so obviously I am doing something other than just whining.

Exactly^, I've run an event with 5k, two trinkets, and a politely written e-mail....

Over my time with Puzzle Pirates I've found my "fun" in certain puzzles (gettin ult etc. ) and participating in the forum art events which has allowed me to meet awesome people- and proved very fruitful in the poe department.

^this.

I've run multiple events with 20k, and do you know how rewarding it is to see everyone's interest and entries in? All they did was write a small 5 line paragraph too. Unless of course you're the kind of person who has absolutely no joy in giving to other people.

I've been playing PP for a very long time, and I still find tons of stuff to do. But I play very casually.

Puzzle Pirates is a very social game, so it seems like you need people to fuel content and make it fun. But you need more content to bring in more people. It's a sad cycle...
