Forgive the complete blanket post and I have also read the ultimate guide to Piracy thread located here: The Ultimate Guide to Piracy!
But for not have been lucky to participate myself thus far I would like to reach out to current players and get a few questions answered.
Is It worth it ?
What additional stuff do you get as a pirate over a East or West faction? Is it Just purly the non standing loss for pking?
Is It Viable ?
Can you make enough cash through plunder to finance your game ? or is this a real uphill climb ?
Do pirates have a safezone around there shore for fishing ect or any safe zone at all?
What penaltys do pirates have for ganking other pirates ?
How good is the pirate island ? what are the best features of it ? ( never seen it so would appreicate screenies) and how big is it ?
Can pirate guilds raise castles ect like other guilds ?
Can Pirates still have houses ?
I mean the pirate life always has drawn me and in eve I spent 4 years with the restrictive gameplay as I love it so much however Id like to know what I plan on getting myself into
