Never did get a chance to play the original unfortunately, actually didn't even hear about it before way after there were no servers any more. Which was a bummer because people on these forums praised it.
This is great news, it looks like an absolute blast to play
Anything with pirates is already awesome. So now you add in hot air balloons and flying ships and yea you know where I'm going with this. Adding anything to the game in addition to pirates ;can only get better. :IS2:
