Captains, the 10.52/10.53 Update is deploying Tuesday, December 22nd at ~7:30 PM PST. 


A reminder that the 10.52 and 10.53 Updates will be combined (so there will be no downtime or official “update” for 10.53), but notes will remain separate to avoid confusion. 


This week, we see support for the Krampus Snow Brawl special event and three campaigns: the NEW Return to Honor Ronin campaign, Creeping Barrage, and Hold the Line.


Read on for more details!


Reminders: 


HTML5


We’re on the home stretch! We advise everyone to play Battle Pirates exclusively in HTML5 from this point forward. Having trouble with HTML5? Please visit our forum post for a list of best practices and how we can help. 


Tip: If you’re having trouble with Battle Pirates, try using a different Chromium-based browser. For example, Opera GX or Edge (Chromium).
