Ahoy everyone !
This thread is written to discuss the "sail to the end of the world" notification pirates receive as a result of sailing beyond UNCHARTERED waters on POTCO.
*For those of you pirates that are unaware, limitations exist on the game as to how far you may sail your ship (for both 'normal' sailing & plundering & privateering SVS).
A few days ago on the game, as I was privateering for France, I had sailed a little too far beyond the realm Disney would allow my ship to be Captained. As a result, Disney informed me that I could proceed no further & issued a warning inked in red lettering. This Disney warning took "the wind from me sails," so to speak. As a result, a couple of things I would like to say within this thread on-the-record.
OK. First of all, has Disney not heard the news??? THE WORLD IS ROUND, not FLAT!!! Um yeah. Hello, lol! Anyway, well...I guess we shouldn't hold it against them too much. It's a "small world" to them after all & maybe someday they will eventually catch on, lol.
Also, is it just me or does this abrupt notification while sailing remind you as it did me of the ending scene to the movie, "THE TRUMAN SHOW." See link below & read the information provided.
* Overview - Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) discovers his whole life is not what he thought it was. Rather than a life filled with truth, it is a life based solely for the purpose of a reality tv show broadcasted 24 hours a day for people to watch. Truman is unaware that he has been watched since birth, and the people around him are "acting" out their roles & relationships to him. The island of Seahaven, Truman's place of residence, remains as fake as the sand upon it's beaches & has been constructed for the purposes of "sheltering" Truman from the truth of knowing the outside world.
Anyway, I feel Disney should create something far more interesting on the game to inform us pirates that our world is coming to an end while sailing. IDK. I have a few ideas. How about you? Let me hear of your suggestions &/or ideas you have concerning this matter. I don't know about you but...the effort & time it takes to sail to these unchartered waters should be worth at least a few glasses of lemonade - or better still - Rum in my book, lol.
