Midnight + Doubloons = Pwnage....???

Alright, a few months ago I discovered that Cobalt is the same as Viridian except characters, doubloons and subscriptions shoppes, politics, and all that jazz, then I went on to midnight and thought:

Offerz thought,
 
This ocean is so much better than viridian besides the fact that it doesn't have doubloons."


Then I thought, what makes Viridian and Cobalt so special?
Why isn't there a doubloon version of Midnight?
Post your oppinions here~~

Well yeah I know that, but why were they picked to be duplicates instead of Midnight?

Because Midnight's islands were designed before the whole size designation stuff came into being. It has a disproportionate number of large islands compared to the other oceans.

Re: Midnight + Doubloons = Pwnage....???

order of ocean creation -

Azure (the 'original' test ocean - eventually eaten by sea monsters)
Midnight (just like Azure but with better pwnage)
Ice (new test ocean - too cold for sea monsters to eat)
Viridian (where green is the greeniest) / Cobalt (Viridian's good twin)
Sage (because ye just can't have enough green)
Hunter (okay, now we have enough green!)

Doubloons have cost exactly the same price for years. 42 dubs for $10.

Oh, what's that? You want it to be easier to play the game FOR FREE? Sorry, kiddo. No sympathy.

No, because it still existed during the early days of Midnight. My very first sloop on Azure was sunk during the testing of ship sinking. My bestest pirate buddy replaced it on Midnight as a Hearty Day's prezzie. (huggles Dragonlilly)

Why isn't there a doubloon version of Midnight? Because - from my understanding - Cobalt was originally supposed to be the doubloon ocean, but someone in OOO decided that it would be a better idea to release a new subsciption ocean as well as the experimental doubloon server because people will still want to play that particular layout.

It's simple, if the doubloon experiment had gone bust and noone used it, Viridian would likely have been deleted and we'd be playing on Cobalt now. Capice?

Re: Midnight + Doubloons = Pwnage....???

I'd love a doubloon version of Midnight - that'd be a lot of fun. They could tweak up the island sizes; reducing some of the smaller larges to Mediums, designate a few more as outposts.

I always liked the arch layout and scale of Midnight - I still think it's the best.

My understanding is that it was an issue of timing as much as anything else. Once they decided they wanted both a new sub ocean and a new doub ocean, there wasn't time to prepare two sets of islands, so they just made both new oceans the same.

Re: Midnight + Doubloons = Pwnage....???

I think I heard somewhere that Viridian and Cobalt were released at the same time.

Ice was created before Cobalt & Viridian. When it first openend up, everyone got 100 doubloons for testing. Then there were big blockade parties on the three large islands before the ocean was wiped and turned into a normal subscription ocean.
