New ocean coming soon: "Hunter" Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Preparations are currently underway to open up a brand new doubloon ocean next week (the week of April 17), which will be named Hunter.

Thanks once again to our crack team of cartographers who contributed to the new ocean!

These will be our special rules for starting up the Hunter ocean. We may need to change these as we go along.

Reclaiming your old pirate name
If your preferred pirate name is taken on Hunter during the first week after it opened you may petition us to ask to reclaim the name if you already have it on 3 older oceans (Midnight, Viridian, Cobalt or Sage) on that same account.

We offer this as a special service to you, but realize that not everyone will be able to get their names if they don't meet the requirements.
Please respect if your request is denied, or if you log on and find that your name has been changed due to this.

Please do not reserve names for your friends, they have this same week to log on to claim the name and it creates a ton more work for us if you reserve it for them.

Cheap Sloops at the Palace Shoppe
Sloops are sold at a discounted price 3k and 20 doubloons at the Palace Shoppe. We will increase the poe price slowly over time.

Charts
You may buy charts from the starter islands in the Shipyard stall we have open.

Cheaper stalls
Stalls will be cheaper to open during a startup period.

No need for rum
No rum will be needed during a startup period.

No OM pillages
Oceanmasters will not be running pillages as this tends to give a huge advantage to the lucky few who can get a spot.

Requirements to start a crew
The requirements to start a crew during the startup period is: Narrow experience in Swordfighting and Bilging. Own a vessel. Own a Captain's Badge.

Ahoy pirates of Hunter!

Starting this Monday after a reboot 8am PST we will change some of the startup settings for Hunter:
- Free Rum will be turned off. Don't go sailing without rum, thirsty pirates are unpredictable!
- The price of setting up a stall will be raised up to 75% of to the normal cost on all other oceans (currently set to 50%).
- The price of Sloops in the Palace will be raised to 8k.

Also note that we are no longer reclaiming taken pirate names.
