    You can hope all you want mate! :p, it's a part of the freedom we pirates have aye?! October 31st would be awesome and I also predict they will come out with beta on this day if not sooner, either way just remember like many have said the longer the wait, the better the late, for much progress goes into quality over trying to jumble quantity of a bunch of things that don't operate together well. Stay savvy mate!

    Couldn't agree more, setting sail again on the 31st would be awesome, it's a reasonable date to expect as well. :cheers:

    Apologies if this has been covered, but how does one go about getting these beta keys? I never played the alpha, so no key there. Just wondered how I can play the beta, as and when it launches?

    Keys are won thru contests. Just keep an eye on piratesonline.co to see when contests are announced.

    When Beta launches, you can play by having a Key, or by scheduling a Playtime. Read this thread for more info - https://piratesforums.co/threads/playtimes-q-a.12359/.

    Currently there are no dates for any release. However the devs are working on getting all the bugs worked out as soon as they can.

    The day Beta comes out is going to be the day I'm away from my computer, I swear.
    Still hyped for it, though.

    I'm afraid not. Beta release isn't based upon a date or time. It's based upon a list of things that we need to finish. Bugs and other such things are much too unpredictable to toss a date out. Not being able to release before even a ballpark date would be extremely disappointing.

    I agree completely but with how Mike had previously stated that this is the stage of beta, not full release I realize the agenda is to release beta with full features with minimum bugs as possible, but of course in beta we will find several bugs, glitches, and improvememts to be made don't get me wrong the reason I'm posting this is because I'm not looking for an eta from you, honestly I'd enjoy to be suprised, and as for me its obvious that you guys will release most likely, by the way this is just my prediction, either days, weeks, or months, and a couple of weeks was my guess previously, but now its starting to look more like days until beta, so like I know there is no eta you can always respond to hype the fans by saying something along these lines though, " The best possibility is beta coming out within a couple weeks, worst possibility is a couple months, of course anything can happen to prevent it from being around Christmas time, such as encountering a huge bug. " Anyhow, you do whatever you want your the best customer service staff member, for anything I've ever met. Stay savvy mate! Can't wait to see all you guys in the game fighting the Navy and undead.
