    Just curious, since I'm relatively new with only 400+ days of piracy. Who were the first few to play PP but later retired? I do think there might be some still-active players who might give the names, so do post them. I, for one, know that @Bear and @The Fish Eyed Pirate are two such retired players.

    The oldest players are probably in the Chinese guilds, or where ever Midoki first rolled out the beta version of the game. I know there are also several European players that have been playing since the early release. Most of us US players joined upon worldwide release. I'm sure there are still many of those early players around. To the best of my knowledge, all the members in our guilds joined at time of, or after, the worldwide official release.

    The game was soft launched in Canada actually. I don't know who the oldest players r, but oh Canada is the oldest guild in the game.

    I downloaded PP four days after the US release (circa early September '14) and there were already maxed bases, which I later realized, as @Spongee stated, the game was released in much of the world (China, Euro, and Canada) prior to the US. Much of the players I I've known from the beginning I met in PIrates United.

    I joined within days of release in Australia (867 and counting) many of the original guilds from back then have gone but Tortuga Nest and RFF still active. As for the forum here, there are many worthy past members that helped pioneer this game, most are in the Members Tab - Noteable Members. But sadly a lot have moved on.

    As much as RFF is a long standing and highly reputable guild in the game, they were not around in those early days when game first hit worldwide release. Many members were part of Piates R us or whatever. I never joined them because I could not bring myself to join a guild that couldn't spell Pirates correctly in a pirate themed game. Think original Black Flag is still around and struggling. RFF would win my award for longest running guild to remain competitive and relevant.

    There was some guild that Oak Doak and I were in, PU was recruiting in their early days. If I remember correctly, Nicko and Knope were the ones sent to said guild I was in to recruit. And the rest is history.

    I think We R Piates was the guild I was recruited from PU. I remember now, that I didn't catch in to the misspelling until after I'd joined, haha.
