I don't have a lot of free time, and due to the fact that I have to level up via combat in order to get merchant skills that have nothing to do with sailing a ship or firing a cannon, I'm giving up on the pirate life. Putting levels into this game was a mistake, or at least in forcing me to fight ships in order to get a skill that lets me post buy and sell orders. I'd even rate this as a cockstab, since I'm no longer playing due to this design decision.
Better luck next time, FLS.
Why am I homeless? Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question. They called it The Prayer, its answer was law Mommy come back 'cause the water's all gone
