    Congrats on the launch. What was your focus in the game development?

    I gave it a go and it’s fun. Reminds me of Man’o’War, the old games workshop game.

    I think a problem might be that it rewards people for lurking outside a fight then dashing in to kill off players when they are beat up.

    YAR HAR FIDDLE DEE DEE, BEING A PIRATE IS ALRIGHT WITH ME

    I'll probably give this a go later. I'm not really a fan of Battle Royale games, but I gotta do my part to help out our boy Sokobro. Combat looks fun; I'll probably spend most of my time ramming people and letting my crew handle the dirty work. (Also is it possible to push other ships into the sea monster zone? Because I would totally be down for that strategy.) Undead fleet should be neat, but try not to go overboard with the stealth mechanics. I don't tend to have a problem with it myself, but I can see how it would get out of hand in a BR. Glad to see you're bouncing back after Pox's downfall!

    If you aren't a fan of battle royales and shooters, it MAY actually be up your alley.

    It's 10 minute fights with no inventory management, has out of game progression and asymmetry.

    There's a variety of mates and possible builds on each ship so there's a bit of a deckbuilding element there.

    Yes, pushing other people into the Maelstrom is a totally legit tactic - especially in conjunction with the knockback mechanics available.

    Or shooting out someone's sails when they are in the dead waters where the thrashers will kill them.

    I've been enjoying this an awful lot thus far.

    The biggest issue I've run into is that most of the folks in any given match at low level don't seem to have a complete grasp of what they're supposed to do.

    I've already won several matches simply by sailing away from an enemy as the zone shrinks only for them to keep put putting around and get nommed by a sea monster.

    Aside from a few performance hiccups, I'm liking it thus far.

    Reminds me a bit of the old Sid Myer's Pirates game which is a good thing. I sunk many hours into that game as a kid.

    First PC game I ever played; if I were to imagine a multiplayer match-making version...it would look like this

    The sharks pulling the ship is a nice touch.
