    I hope all the players that left the game over the last year or so get this email notice, or they will forever lose all there accounts.

    Though, it probably wont matter as I doubt they would D/L game just to migrate accounts anyway, hope you do somehow find a way to work the migrate process without having to be in game.

    It would be a pity for all them accounts lost forever.

      Wouldn't say the game shutdown by SOE part has come unexpected. Attempts to dumb the game down to attract another customer segment; introducing a few fast cash ships in hope of attracting last minute $; reducing econ output to (just my theory but still) reduce the primetime PvP activity spikes to be able to run on cheaper hardware.

      What has come unexpected is that former employees have decided to take over. If it's just because of being able to streamline profits by removing the chunk to-be-paid to SONY then I do not have much hope for prolonged future either.

      It is however possible that the changes of past months have been pushed out because of the dictatus of SOE (pushing out standard eol procedures) and with the Devs (who see the real situation) not necessarily agreeing with it. Because the real situation is doomy because of constantly fixing the wrong things and not because EOL has come. There is just no other Age-of-sail game around with such in-depth crafting/pvp combination.

      Therefore I will not judge you ppl before I see what you are really up to. On the contrary, I'd like to thank you for believing in POTBS future (at least the near one) and maybe you ppl even believe in finding ways to profit from bringing out the strengths this game has instead of trying to make another game as have been the recent efforts by Sony, in that case I wish you good luck and really hope you have one! I think you deserve support and encouragement at this moment.

        Why not? Account history is great! A trader/eco-maniac (but also a pvper) can have 10multiple account, mostly of them premium or cc, why do u want to make login process so boring for 80% of player base?

        How SOE laucher works for players (not how it works inside) is the only right thing SOE do for PotBS so, after all ships nerf, dont nerve launcher behavior also!

          Only 2 of my 4 accounts got an e-mail about that so far. Sure you sent the mail to all your customers?

          P.S. Don't forget to advertise on steam, you will reach millions of potential players.

              Dear future owners of potbs...

              Fire the staff who created 2.11/2.12
              Do not retain them.

              If the staff involved are the same people obtaining ownership...hmmm hi!

                Uhm... No! If possible, please disable people from using 10 econ accounts! The auction house may get more important and if 10 slots really are too little these days, I suggest you to enable 20 slots from TA instead of allowing players to have 10 econ accounts with crazy names like "zinc supplier" and "wood cutter"...

                    ok, different day, more questions offcourse...

                    I think a good one would be for most of us in this game at this time...

                    Will there be any patches going live or on testbed before the 31st of Jan. as i would understand there would not be a patch untill the relaunch... wich would come with a patch anyway... offcourse.

                    And if this is the case of no patch untill relaunch... Will there be any patch notes released before the relaunch of the game? if not only on the forums. it would be good to know where we stand, and i think enough of us understand this...

                    Surely econ wise ((and i don't do any econ except spending money on boats and ammo)) there will need to be some clarification, as i do understand people do not want to have the same deal as with their hulls this patch, and the LSB removal in 2.11

                    I am sure, some of those players might want to know wich direction they are heading before they start producing more... and if they start producing more atleast we can have boats to sail till jan 31st without having to worry abouts them...

                      Will Portalus have its own forum on the new web site? Or it will stay the same here?

                          I read it different, I think Hamled means your log in account details will not be saved...like the current launcher, so when in game you can log in a diff account but you need to punch in the password etc, then you can still have multi accounts logged in game.

                          I may be wrong but that's how i read it. So I don't see no prob with it.

                                Speaking of leaderboards, the leaderboards for Roberts characters which didn't work since the server crash are working again - it might mean they're about to get the server online soon.
