Captains, the 10.28 Update is deploying Tuesday, July 7th at ~9:00 PM PDT. 


The update includes support for July Raid: Hold Fast and two campaigns: Pieces of Eight and Strike from Down Under. 


Read on for more details! 


Reminders: 


CONTENT CHANGES


NEW (7/7)

Please note the following additional changes for the 10.28 Update: 


  • Enabling red bubble counters for successful hits - Giving someone a blue bubble still potentially triggers a red bubble. (This hopefully decreases dumping opportunities and protects you from being farmed as soon as you drop your bubble.)

  • Increasing the gap between players to get the maximum medals. - For example, before, a pirate would get 49 medals from someone 160 medals above. Now, they need to be 300 medals above to get the maximum number of medals.

  • Capping the maximum medals you can get from a successful attack - The new number will be 29 max instead of 49. Attacking will still yield more medals than defense, just not as much as previously. 

  • Defense payouts remain the same - We will not be reducing them to a maximum of 10 as previously indicated.


Note: These changes will not impact Bounty or Alliance points. We also recognize the need for ongoing improvements and will continue to evaluate and revisit in the coming weeks. 


PvP, BUBBLES AND MEDALS - OH MY 


For the 10.28 Update, we are making the following changes:  

  • We are going to change the 7 day & 28 day bubbles to no longer add together. You will receive warning before you buy one, and you will effectively get 7 days from time of purchase. 

  • Stay tuned for an update (today or tomorrow) on further actions around medal dumping. 


Thank you for your patience.
