Battle Pirates is a Free Browser Based
[BB], complex hardcore Strategy MMO Game [MMORTS].
Build an island fortress, customize
deadly ships, and rule the high seas in the most epic MMORTS. Battle
Pirates casts players in the role of a commander of a new island
base, through building and upgrading their base, researching new
technologies and battling opponents the player will grow in strength
and demonstrate their supremacy to others.
The base building aspect sees players
with a limited amount of room to construct buildings and upgrade them
to make them more efficient. Building defensive structures around the
perimeter of the base is also a must if the player wants to remain
safe from other human opponents. Upon entering battle, the player is
presented with a waterlogged arena, with the two fleets facing off
against each other from opposite sides. Players are able to give
direct commands to individual ships, it's also possible to leave the
battle to resolve itself, however, and early in the game this is just
as valid an approach as micromanaging the fleet. As the player
researches technologies and builds ships with more specialist
equipment, however, micromanagement becomes more important.
With Battle Pirates, Kixeye has ably
demonstrated that they “get” what the hardcore player wants. The
gameplay is simple to understand and easy to get into, yet offers
considerable depth for those willing to invest time and effort (and
not necessarily money) into the experience.
