More than six months ago I had the pleasure to chat with one of the guys behind World of Pirates. The MMOP! (Massively Multiplayer Online Pirates!), which also features city management aspects, is currently being beta-tested and it's interesting to see how things have developed since then. An update mentions some news on the latest build. And while it might not directly affect anyone who isn't in the beta test, one can read some more information on a few fresh elements added to the game. The diplomacy system was finished and players now can also hire specialists to upgrade their fleets. If you want to know more about the title or try to sign up for the beta, head over to the official homepage of World of Pirates.
