    Great find, Aliceblue, and good to see you!

    I've been so busy lately, I haven't had a chance to be online much with fun stuff.

    Hi Tink and Aengus :)

    I doubt I'll be playing this one myself, as I can barely manage one game and I have yet to run out of things to do in Wizard101. (Can't believe I've been playing it longer than VMK now..... :()

    For any of you folks who still play Wiz, it looks like the two games may be interconnected in terms of accounts, crowns and memberships.

    I still play wizards at least a few times a week but I signed up for this one too. DS likes the way the combat looks like it is going to be on this one.

    I believe it is in beta or soon will be. As far as I know, it hasn't gone live yet.

    I'm in for the beta and I'm still playing Wizard101. Takes some time to get used to the gameplay, but I'm interested in seeing how it will all play out.

    I was invited in for beta and, so far, I am really enjoying this game. Play style is a bit different than Wizard 101 but the well-done graphics, enjoyable Easter eggs, are all present and accounted for. The change in play style keeps it from being just a pirate version of Wizards. Can't discuss much more than these general observations due to the Beta agreement as well as not knowing what will make it past the beta testing into the live version. For those who enjoy Wizards (as well as my old VMK comrades), I think it will be well worth your time to at least take a peek when the time comes.

    Just saw this announcement on their website:

    Not sure I want to download the preview game, but I thought those of you who didn't get into the beta might be interested. :)

    Ill be playing Pirate 101, already had bought the bundle when it was released and was included to play Beta. Our entire family plays Wizard 101 (3 generations to be exact) My husband and myself and our son who just turned 7 and my father. Its our family time. We skype and go in and do different quests together :thumbsup2 What i like about Pirates is that the game play is different than wizards, but still has the amazing graphics and great storylines :goodvibes We are all looking foward to playing it on Monday (when those that bought the bundle/card) goes live, and then it starts for everyone on the 18th of October :hyper:

    Hi Alice, hi Aengus. I've played in Beta for several months now. Really recommend it to my old VMK chums. Look forward to seeing what you think, Tazgirl, as to whether it's fun for your family the way Wizard 101 is.

    have any of you beta players found a particular class to be an easier start than the others?

    Hi Aengus.
    I'm partial to the Privateer class due to some useful healing talents which come in handy during the bigger boss battles. Like Wizard 101, however, each class has its strengths and weaknesses so I'd say it comes down to preferred play style. A very nice addition to the game is that you pick up "crewmembers" as you go along. These are from the different classes so that you can balance some of your avatar's weaknesses. You can also select which of the crew you want to be your First Mate. You will usually have 2 to 3 crew members join you in battle. They obtain training points along the way so you can build them up along with your own experience.

    You can also purchase pets that will turn up occasionally although you can't control them directly the way you can your avatar and crew members.

    Don't hesitate to ask more questions. I'll be glad to try to answer.
