Plunder Pirates “Free to Pee” Update Out Now for iOS (v1.3.3)

At long last, Midoki has released their much-anticipated Plunder Pirates v1.3.3 “Free to Pee” update! This release adds two awesome new features, tons of enhancements for existing features and fixes numerous gameplay and troop AI issues. This update is available for iOS now with Android and Windows Phone versions expected in 2015 (I know it seems like that is a long way away, but it’s really not).

Now, without further ado, this update includes:

  • New Pirate! The Sky Raider: Like a 17th Century commando, he can parachute in behind enemy lines, and with his Rain of Fire skill, he can reduce enemy defenses to rubble without touching the ground. Just watch out for those tall buildings!
  • New Guild Perk! Pirate Catcher. It’s like a mousetrap for pirates! Get your guild to find it, and when it’s active, this perk building will speed up crew recruitment by 15%. More plunder more often is a very good thing.
  • Wall Edit Mode: Now you can select, move and upgrade entire wall sections! Arguably the #1 most-requested feature, this is just the first part of base editing mode that will be rolled out over the next few updates.
  • Plundercam is Back! Now when viewing a battle replay, you can tap the camera icon and view the replay in 3D. This is by far my favorite feature.
  • No more stuck troops! That pesky bug where Juggernauts and other elite troops suddenly stop moving in mid-battle has been fixed! Also, troops will no longer walk through walls, or be thrown through walls by a nearby mortar blast. There are also numerous AI improvements for the troops.
  • Observatory is now affordable: The funding cost for this guild perk building has been reduced by a whopping 70%. Now everyone can keep it running 24×7!
  • The Battle Points (BP) cost to build a Level 1 and Level 2 Academy has been reduced.
  • Available loot is now scaled down when a player attacks someone with a lower level Pirate Hall. This will greatly reduce the incentive for the high level players to beat up on the new guys.
  • The pool of players you can be matched against for battles has been greatly increased. Now players who were active in the last 28 days can be matched. (previously this was 7 days)
  • Removed Halloween Mode – Players can still use their existing Frankenbrutenstein and Pumpkin Poppers, but once they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
  • Dozens of bug fixes! See the Release Notes for full details.

The name catches my negative attention.

Multiple Pun on “Free to Play” and “P=Plunder” aside, you’d have to play the game for it to make sense. Players have been complaining about the super-long training times for a while. (Mine are 1 hour. High levels can be 2-4 hours). That’s just their way of saying “We hear you”. The team that made this game is based in the UK, so there is a generous helping of British humo(u)r all throughout the game.

British Humor? You mean I can go in there and experience Jeremy Clarkson levels of literary roller coaster puns? Awesome. I have to play it.

Also did a double take on the name of the update, and posted it to friends while in an MMO gaming session. They are like “huwat, who is free to pee!?” Hahahaha!

@les-toreadors It’s pretty subtle, but it’s scattered through there. I’m always finding things to crack me up, but then again, I am easily amused. :)

To tell the truth my ‘humor’ is often OTT to extremes. I am amused by Goat Simulator MMOs, tactical nuclear penguins and Exploding Sheep :3

Thanks Luqman, I’m slow, but I’ve been waiting for this for so long, I wasn’t about to let it go unnoticed. :o)

Forgot to mention: Thanks to Tortuga Nest guild member Gorgeous George for providing the replay so I could get that 4th photo of the 3D Plundercam battle.

The fact that it can happen IRL just makes it more hilarious.

I downloaded the game once, but I deleted it later. Now, I want to download and I can’t start from scratch, opens where I left off before deleted it. How can I start from scratch?

David – I don’t think you can start from scratch. But if you want to try, do this:

Open the game and go to the Log book icon at bottom left
Tap the Gears icon at top right of the Log
Tap the Help Life Preserver at bottom right of that tab
Tap the Support button to open an email to Rovio Support (with your Pirate account info conveniently filled in)

In the email, explain that you’d like to have this account deleted or reset. I’d word the email so that it sounds like you really need your account reset for some good reason, not that you’re just wanting to start over. Since there’s really only one way you can screw something up permanently (maxing useless Witch Doctor or elite troops skills), they probably won’t allow a reset without a good reason. If they do allow you to reset, could you please let me know by replying to this, and mentioning @kelani ?

Have not played the game much but the video above is funny. After reading all the posts it made it even more humorous watching it a second time. May have to reopen the game and play a bit more.
