    Good evening, friends and fellow pirates.

    It's official. At long last, the date for POR's Open Beta release has been set for May 26th, 2017, the same day the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie, POTC 5 - "Dead Men Tell No Tales" will be premiering in theaters across the USA! Open Beta will include Sailing, Crews, Poker and Blackjack, PvP, Cannon Defense, Caves, Quests, and hundreds of bug-fixes and performance enhancements. Our development team will be working extremely hard throughout the next two months in order to ensure that this deadline is met. We're all very confident, and excited for our Beta release, and would like to take this opportunity to thank the Pirates Online community for their unwavering support throughout the past few months. We never could've come this far without each and every one of you!

    Great news. I have only one question concerning release: Pirates will still be reset, correct? That was always the original plan and I for one hope I am not the only swashbuckler longing for a fresh start when Open Beta is finally released. Thank you to the POR Staff for being persistent and firm in your actions. Thank you.

    Oh, might I quickly add, I am actually elated to hear that the official release of Open Beta will happen in late May. I am sure it was not intended (at least primarily, as I understand open beta is meant to be accessible to the public on the date of the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie's premier), but the timing of it's release conveniently coincides with the end of many common spring semesters and the opening of summer break. I would expect an influx of users around that time not only resulting from the announcement of Open Beta, but also just the plain and simple fact that starting around that time many of the players and contributors to this community, including myself, will acquire an immensely greater amount of free time. I truly can't wait to become a larger part of this indefatigable and driven community.

    There is a voting poll on if it should be reset or not however it is started by a member in our community not an admin so even if the vote goes through it's not confirmed that it will proceed it is up to the owners after all.

    I will say however how will this be considered a beta? got majority of the stuff needed for the game in place and ready to go? [sorry being a little wondering.]

    Has not gotten on for a while waiting for updates that where needed for fun one im sure must be there now is being able to attack an enemy and that enemy chasing my sorry rear down for me being to weak or what not.
