The Pirate101 Test Realm is Offline

Pirate101 Test RealmWe’re Closed … For the Weekend
September 7, 2018

I was having a good time in the Test Realm today. And I was looking forward to sailing to each world and finding the new quests that have been added this evening and through the weekend.

But alas, the Scurvy Dogs who cater to the Royals in KingsIsle have been chained to their grindstones and put back to work again.

We’ll see you next week. In the mean time you might want to check out what we’ve seen and learned so far.  Visit our Test Realm Observations, we’ve made some updates today.

The Pirate101 Test Realm is Offline

Pirate101 Test RealmI Think We Broke It
September 1, 2018

If you logged in to the Test Realm this morning, you received this message:

The Test Realm is currently offline for the weekend and will be back up sometime on Tuesday. Thank you for testing the game, Pirates, and see you when the Test Realm comes back online!

For those of you new to the Test Realm, the whole purpose is for players to help KI put the new updates through their paces and find the issues BEFORE they are released in the Live Realm. We as players do something for KI and in return we get the chance to see what’s coming before the release. That’s the fun part!

But that also means we Pirates can stress the system so much, the Royals at KI may need to take the test realm offline to make corrections. It’s thankless job, but I’m sure the programmers will make their tweaks as quickly as possible and get us back online soon.

Really Big Updates on 09/26

Pirate101 Beta TestKI Makes Several Small Tweaks and Adjustments

If you were excited to participate in the Ship Party on Wednesday and were disappointed it was cancelled, here’s you’re chance to find out why. Check out One-Eyed Jack’s Captain’s Log—Spiral Date 413802

Check out the updates that occurred Wednesday evening and see what’s been done to the game to prepare Pirate101 for its opening day!

And if you were like us and you showed up for the party anyway, you got a chance to see a lot ships hanging out in the Skull Island Skyway. It was truly awesome. I wish I had thought about it last night and had taken a screen shot to mark the event. But I didn’t think about that until today. Even at 7:30 there were 10 to 15 ships gathered around checking each other out. It was truly a neat thing to see.

Jack has mentioned that the party wasn’t completely cancelled, it’s simply been rescheduled. So stay tuned and look for the next gathering coming soon to a skyway near you!

Pirate101 Ship Party

We’re throwing a game-wide ship party this Wednesday at 7:00pm Eastern!

Bring your best ship and prepare to recreate your own version of Flotsam with all the other players of Pirate101. After a few cool screenshots of our groups, we’re encouraging the entire fleet of players to destroy Cutthroat and Waponi ships in a giant mass as we all slowly sail our way to Jonah Town!

Woohoo!! It’s Party Time!!

Date: this Wednesday, 26 September 2012

What: The Beta Ship Party!

Where: Avery Server (In as many areas as we can accommodate) between the Blood Shoals and Skull Island proper in the Skull Island Skyway (you know . . . it’s that big safe area between the windlanes just outside of Skull Island from the Skull Island Docks! Just look for the mass of ships hanging out!)

When: 6:00 – 6:30pm Central / 7:00 – 7:30pm Eastern (feel free to keep the party going afterwards!)

Who: Everybody in Beta who can captain a ship of any kind! Come meet other players and introduce yourself!

Why: We’re having a giant ship party

1- to get a lot of users online at once.
2- to test what it’s like out there in the skyways when you get a lot of ships together in one place, and
3- TO HAVE FUN! We know when the game launches our awesome players will find every reason to party, and we think that’s awesome.

We’ll see you there!

Beta Pirates Say “Good-bye”

Bold Victoria BristolCharacter Reset Happening Tonight 9/18/2012

Beta Pirates! A lot of great changes are incoming with the new build of Pirate101 scheduled for tonight, and this will make it necessary to say goodbye to our old characters and hello to new faces. While it is sad to say goodbye to our characters during Beta, we hope you will continue to enjoy exploring Skull Island and beyond as we draw ever closer to the launch of Pirate101.

From One-Eyed Jack.
