What is the state of development? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I realise there is no developer. I played this game since I can remember and I don't want it to die the inevitable slow death that it is doing.

What will it take for them to release the code to a developer who actually wants to retain what is left of the community.

They have the money to keep the payment gateways running so you can buy dubloons but what about when there's nobody left to buy them?

You can't stop the decline, I'm surprised Emerald still is alive after Obsidian. But I've heard its rapidly declining.

Whenever people RMT less which is not gonna happen, probably whenever Grey Havens has enough money to pay for a developer.

Then Puzzle Pirates will be shut down, wouldn't be the worst idea at this point.

Well, I'm trying to keep people interested in the game and remind them that the community is actually holding up, for the past 2 months the amount of players online has averaged between 200 and 350 daily, it peaked last Sunday almost reaching 500 players, the weekend before that it peaked at 400 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I wouldn't say the game is alive, but it's not rapidly declining :P

It's only 400+ on weekends due to the mass amount of alts, in blockades which is around 200 everyone does it. You'll be surprised on how low the population is without alts. Obsidian piled on more pirates than emerald ever has since the first merge. Better off moving to obsidian than die in on emerald.
