The whole point of Treasure Fleets is banding together in a rag-tag armada to overcome the deadly SOTL that takes out Frigates in a few broadsides. If pirates were granted access to it, the game would be over quickly and give less experiance to other ships. And with all that loot that will collected so easily from other ships, pirates will soon grow rich and their lives will be more easier. The SOTL in a nutshell will only make the gameplay less challenging and I pray that I will never see it on the seas.
WHO'S WITH ME!!!
