        This makes it sound like the F2P model tanked the game.

          Except that the game is staying F2P.

            Dear GMs,

            When bought a game there was a bonus-code which gave me Captain Club membership till 2019. Will it be finished too?

                I really just hope that this means faster development and more interaction with the communitys suggestions

                  I'm so glad that SoE will have nothing to do with this game anymore. They should never have had anything to do with this game from the start.

                  That we can now get a more serious group of people who truly wants to improve the game can only be a positive thing. FLS haven't done much to improve the game at all in the last years.

                  This is great news in my opinion

                    Wow. This is somewhat awesone!
                    Many players said it bevore, that SOE is killing Potbs and Imo they contributet quite a LOT to the state of population NOW.

                    I want to see this as a CHANCE. To get the communication back wich we once had between devs and players. To add GOOD! new content and multiply the fun of the game. Cause atm its only a shadow of its former appearing.!

                    I am looking forward to this changes in a good mood!

                    gratz,
                    Nicolas Aubrey

                      it could be a very good thing just would like to know who are the devs that are taking over the game hope not the ones that created last two patches?

                      to have fun we need to have maneuverable ships like frigates competitive in 6vs6s and pbs for skirm group...sailing SF bricks without any option then to fight until the end of the map is not fun!

                      pls listen to players and bring back frigates in to 6vs6!

                      also removing invincible (tmtd) and fd removed lot of options from fights especially pbs we dont want realism we want fun sinking narbs

                      hope this time devs will listen to players

                          This is, by far, the best thing SOE has ever done for PotBS.

                          Finally, the game will have the chance to grow.

                            Or finally die on its own... Either way, after Jan 31 it should be a interesting first 6 months. Especially for a lot of people who take breaks for months on end and come back and find they have nothing to come back too (character or game-wise)...

                              So how exactly does the game start growing after departure from SOE? If by growing you mean adding more meaningless cosmetic elements to the game or tweaking some stats here and there then that's all they can do. I hope you are aware about the fact that the same people who were responsible for the latest patches are just picking a new name for their company to operate.

                              SOE can now wash their hands from this game and give all responsibility about the game to Portalus which seems to be created in December this year. Who would want to explain all the paying customers that it's time to close the shop? Also many accounts will be lost due to people on hiatus not making the migration in time.
