This pirate thing is probably one of the worst ideas yet

In addition to the normal clueless players on the weekend, now we add a single ship that the whole team sails around the map chasing, all the while ignoring caps or at the very least, supporting them. 4 slow BBs chasing a pirate Makarov on a flank of the map is pure trash.

Wouldn't know...being in the PST time zone they cut off the pirate invasion before I even log on, so haven't seen any in my matches...

It is the same thing as the Corgi Fleet with a few tweaks on times and ship types. If is a way for free players and anyone else, to get some doubloons, containers and flags. The Corgi Fleet sailed a few times a year and I think the Pirate Fleet will do the same. It is just to have some fun, sink some WG staff, CCs and fellow players. Relax. One weekend of a bit of craziness will not doom your Grind to Glory.

 

Not to mention, if the Pirate is on your team, you should get good shots on the other team while they chase the pirate. If the pirate is on the other team, shoot at the people defending the pirate. I'm sure some of them will get out of position defending the pirate. Or play Ops all weekend.

 Thanks 1st one ever:fish_haloween:

I never got to sink a Corgi and haven't got a Pirate, but I did get to be a Corgi in the last Corgi event. It was a lot of fun! Especially, getting to play the special ships like the Iwaki Alpha, Ark Beta, Flint and Black.

I’m guessing you are unable to kill a pirate while sniping in back in your orion or kaiser...

i love the events, it’s a great way to earn dubloons!

The whole team stopped playing the match and chased the pirate and the match was a disaster since everyone died trying to get some free stuff???

The pirates are all playing in one tier at a time in 3 hour blocks. There are 9 other tiers you could play instead.

This has been a fun little addition to the normal grind that was well executed and co-ordinated, and provided an opportunity for some great bonuses. Stop whining about something so easily avoided should you decide it's not for you.

ALSO, there's co-op and scenarios if the great unwashed masses of random play don't behave the way you would like.

Just a bit of fun, like the Corgi fleet.  Simply don't play the tier Pirates are playing and you don't have to worry about it.  9 Tiers to choose from (except the current Pirate one).
