Beta Testers – Become A Level 15 Pirate…Immediately !

Level 15 Testing Needed

In case you’re a Beta Tester and you missed the news two days ago, KI is asking for help and giving you a boost to get there. On Aug. 22nd One-eyed Jack posted his latest Captain’s Log — Spiral Date 400301 and stating:

One thing we’d like to encourage is that our players test more of the mid- to upper-level content, so we’ve added an old friend in Avery’s Courtyard by the life fountain! Please join us in making a new level 1 character and taking Boochbeard’s quest to immediately level to 15 and be ported to Cool Ranch so you can help us better test this content.

So Pirates should run on over there and get their immediate upgrade to test the higher levels of the game.

Pirate101 Co-Creator Josef Hall Talks Grub Guardian And Future Games Expansion in Forbes Magazine.

Here’s the part of the article that caught my attention the most:

When will people be able to play Pirate101?
Soon! In fact, we have already let thousands of external testers into our Beta test, and we’re adding more testers on an almost-daily basis.

Yeah!! I like that “daily basis” part!

There is a continually updated list of giveaways located at: Pirate101: Closed Beta News.

What’s Your Pirate Name?

Find Your Pirate Name

Do a quick Google search and you’ll find several places online that generate your very own Pirate Name. A topic of discussion on Pirate101 Central. Our favorite place for these generators is A Pirate Quiz.

We found ours:

I’m: Sneaky Scarlett Jack
Scarlett Jack sounds like a wench all by itself. Add the Sneaky part and she sounds like a great thief. What else would a pirate wench be anyway! I like it!

The little kid went looking for his as well:  Dirty Sam Bonney
I can’t keep this kid out of the bath he turned out “Dirty” is beyond me!

No Beta Key For Us

It’s A Sad Day

We tried, but we didn’t win one of this weeks Beta Key give a ways. Pretty bummed about that. But there’s still hope. I’ve heard a rumor that KingsIsle will be making new contests and offers soon. We’ll keep everyone posted on that. Not like everyone is clamoring to get to our new blog here, but never know who’ll be stopping by!
