Anyone knows if there will be more islands colonized on Emerald?
I know the population isn't exactly high at the moment, but I still wonder if more islands will be colonized in the future? Some archipelagoes still don't have a colonized island..

On related note, anyone remembers which island was last colonized on Emerald, and when did it happen?

OOO has not allowed many islands to open in over 5 years, I suspect they will be even more reluctant now that the population has dropped. I hope OOO starts wiping islands and relocating all pirates/houses/stores/ported ships/etc. to nearby islands someday so that new islands can start to be opened.

The documentation in the yppedia seems incomplete, but if I read the official island opening thread correctly, the following are the last two rounds off island openings:

Aug 2006
Jul 2009
Nov 2011 (Both Hunter and Sage, wisely, choose to not open islands. I sure wish Cobalt did likewise.)

I thought Brigand King Blockades were introduced in order to balance the overpopulation of islands. That was the unspoken intent, anyway. But BKs have turned out to be weaksauce.

Pretty much. There have been several threads about ways to wipe islands; some of them have had decent ideas about how to make it less painful for shoppe owners. At some point, I hope something is done, because the oceans are too damn big at the moment.

I'd say there's zero chance of island openings until we have an island wiping mechanism and it's been used a lot of times. All of the oceans have probably twice as many islands as they need, at least. Either that or a massive influx of players, maybe a greenlight on Steam (oh wait ...) or something similar.

It doesn't have to be used a lot of times; it can simply be used once per two islands wiped, for a gradual bring-down.

Greenlight is Steam's mechanism of adding new games; it can't be applied to Puzzle Pirates, since they are already on Steam.

Adding Steam Trading Cards, or perhaps doing some other form of advertisement is the only thing that would help.

That would be the joke that was being made...
