Is anyone playing this https://pirates.my.com/en/about ? I'd love to hook up with some old GOIO comrades.

meh, not really similar to GOIO except for the floating boats thing. Not that people wouldn't like it or w/e. Have you seen this though?

This is more GOIO style and might attract some of the players. I think this game is very good competition for GOIO. This game will attract more people to GOIO because it will (hopefully) show GOIO as a recommended game. Who knows? I plan on getting it.

Sea of Theives, yes. I have looked at what is to offer on that one.

Looks like Canyon Ambush / Clash at Blackcliff when both teams are going around the edge of the map in the same direction.

I'll pass.

Might be for some people, but not me. I can def see potential as a LAN game / game with online friends but I have to see better gameplay videos if I am to get the feel that it would work for pub games.

Looks like a flying pirate ship version of Dreadnought and Fractured Space.

Was going to say the same thing. It looks like a spin off Fractured Space.

That said, it'll probably be fun. Although I pretty much haven't played Fractured Space for a long time now. I know they've added a lot of content and it's better now, but the game just got both formulaic and I got tired of the lack of teamwork. Then with new ships and the F2P aspects of it...ehh.

Steel Ocean ended up being much better than Fractured Space and I swapped to that for awhile before I hit a high enough tier where I just had no opponents anymore. No one else would level up past T5 it seemed.
