Another hit to the sub oceans from OOO

Thank you heartily yet again for ignoring the sub ocean's need with the new launch on the Ipad.

Yes its great you have gone onto a tablet, hopefully it will bring (and retain players) to the game. However, you put a big "offer" on the noticeboards advertising money of doubloons, great amazing attraction to new players, and a great way to directing them towards a dub ocean. So I look to see what you offer to attract players to play the subscription model.... oh wait that's right, a big fat nothing!

So why not offer a discounted sub, or an old fashioned free trial for 1 month, would that really be so hard to do?

Show some commitment to your subscribers, they deserve better than being treated like second-class players.

Re: Another hit to the sub oceans from OOO

that's no problem. Tablet players won't even know that there is a subscriber model as they can't choose Cerulean...

Re: Another hit to the sub oceans from OOO

It is probably best to leave sub ocean discussions to cerulean parley so as not to waste the time of real puzzle pirate players.

Re: Another hit to the sub oceans from OOO

Interestingly, after I downloaded PP to my iPad it gave me Cerulean as my first option to log in on.


But I do agree with you all that hiding the sub oceans is not a good thing.

Eurydice said this problem will be fixed in the upcoming updates.

Re: Another hit to the sub oceans from OOO

As mentioned by Aphrodite here existing subscription ocean players can enable Cerulean on their tablets in the Game Options. Enabling this option will make Cerulean appear in the ocean select for you just as it does with the desktop client.

As far as new players are concerned :

"We do intend to include subscriptions and a front-and-center offering for the game in a subsequent update. There are several issues remaining until this is ready for release.

Cleaver mentioned that we'll be working on improvements and polish over the coming weeks. The immediate availability of subscription Oceans for incoming players is one of those improvements.

Sorry for the wait, and thanks for your patience."


For discussion of the iPad release and relating matters please see this thread . Thanks!
