    Does anyone still play that game anymore?
    I checked recently the website of their devs: www.portalusgames.com

    Apparently, regular server crashing means the game is still live, but does anyone know if it is energetic atmosphere in there or is it dead?
    Download is too much for me to just pop in & check so I thought if anyone is currently active on it to inform me :p

    I have installed it last week again, mainly to look what has become to my character (With a Centurion, Treason and Abbadon's Will) and previous guild, which I abandoned a few years prior to move over to AoP2: CoaS.

    PvP and port battles still going strong, but the auction house is pretty much dead, as almost nobody produces ships of the line anymore. I'm desperately seeking for the new Trydent 4th rate, but there's no offer and the only one I've found was the Valiant for almost 2 million. Which wouldn't be so bad, as I could just buy it for burning sea-points, but unfortunately, buying those for ingame cash is currently disabled.
    Not to forget that the AH-prices have inflated greatly.

    And I'm currently stuck again, as all my ships are in harbours in PvP-zones, which will take some days until I can sail out again.

    But oh well, I'm not really missing the game anymore. It looks pretty, but behind that nice face is just an obnoxious grindfest with shitty combat and a broken player economy.

    Yea I mostly liked the economy and thats why I quit.
    It was so bad to the point that I had a word document with 60 user names and passwords for alts to produce my entire economy lol
