    It seemed to me like it was wrote by a player. I don't know the "screening process" of writing on that site, but it's definitely something an angry Pirate101 player would say. I can see it being an angry KI employee too though. Regardless of who wrote it, it's just things we all already know anyway and has been said a hundred times before.

    Some of the voice actors are Kingsisle employees, and some are professional voice-over artists. I'm not sure that anyone's career would be affected greatly by the continued lack of new Pirate101 content.

    How so? What is it about the review that rings false to you?

    Re: Glassdoor Review

    Even if the review is completely false.....it doesn't change the current status of Pirate101.

    Imagine paying a 60 dollar annual membership for almost zero content updates in that year, because that is exactly what happened from September 2018 to September 2019 in Pirate101. There weren't even any new membership benefits. The only new thing was a limited time Krampus fight that was available for three weeks (animation/sounds imported over from Wizard101). What exactly is membership money going towards? Why encourage potential new players to waste their money?

    I also don't think it was a coincidence that the original Wizard101 and Pirate101 creative team left at the same time the CEO made the decision to branch out to the mobile department. I'm sure the remaining "originals" like Blind Mew and Ratbeard are not happy with the current state of Pirate101 with all the effort and energy they've spent on making Pirate101 and the subsequent revisions to make it better.

    I hate to make yet another negative post, but how many posts need to be made to convey that a Pirate101 update needs to be worked on and not just "charted" or planned. I can't even find an outcrying by the community demanding more mobile games......but that's what we are getting. If anyone still thinks there are two KI development teams (mobile/MMO) you are being mislead. There is a Wizard101 team that a portion of that team works on new mobile games. This is why Pirate101 is in its current status now.

    Haha, yeah, I get what you're saying, but nooo. Some of the voice actors might work at KingsIsle, but a lot of them are probably freelancing or hired online for gigs, etc. (There are lots of places online that people can hire others for voiceover work.)

    On the other hoof, it would make sense if they were hired online, but I do know that some of them either worked at KingsIsle or were there during the time that they posted the Ryan's Make-a-Wish Visit to KingsIsle video on YouTube (since some of the voice actors were there with Ryan at KingsIsle HQ). So I do get what you're saying.

    I don't have to imagine paying for the annual membership, I'm living it. I would still encourage new players to sign up, because there is entertainment value in playing through as a first timer, however, continued membership should be given a lot of thought if players don't feel they are getting value for their money when they have all topped out characters.

    I have my 6 maxed out characters, and I rarely spend on crowns (the last time I did was for the companion sale - bought Fin, Goro, and the water mole sumo guy etc). Buying membership for me would be totally redundant as I have all areas bought. The "benefits" are too - double this and double that when I can already do it. For example, for the half off of miracle mitch. I already have the sources for tons of gold where it isn't really a struggle. It isn't much of an incentive for membership nowadays. If you want to save money - buy the areas.

    There probably won't be confirmation nor denial, they have a right to discretion.

    I apologize if this came across as a bit negative. We just don't want to demoralize Bat from the forums if there's too many inconsequential mentions.

    Yeah, my comment meant to say that new players shouldn't waste their money on an annual membership. New players will certainly find the same enjoyment most of us did several years ago. However, I would highly encourage them to either buy the areas or only pay monthly membership. The game is just not updated frequently enough through the year to justify an annual membership....especially when you compare that 60 dollar value to Wizard101 (not to mention really old MMOs like Everquest from 1999, which still gets more annual updates than Pirate101). I'm pretty sure even old dead MMOs that have been revived like ToonTown and FreeRealms get more updates than Pirate101.
