Hello everyone,
does anybody else have problems in signing in with facebook?
Coins for signing in have now risen to 10k, but whenever I want to connect it says I'm not connected to the internet.
However my W-Lan works fine, and I can even look at the privacy policy, which shouldn't work as well if I weren't connected to the internet.
thanks for Help

Ever since I reinstalled this earlier this summer I haven't been able to sign in to facebook OR buy any IAP! So, that and their F2P model ensures that they'll never get money from most of us.

Update: IAP works fine BUT Facebook will still not connect. Very frustrating when they offer all those coins to connect and then tell you that you can't connect!

Default Greetings and Salutations

I'm new here, but I have been playing ACP for a couple of months (Android version). Just wanted to answer some of the questions that I have seen posted on here.

There is NO cloud save, and no mechanism for saving/restoring your game data (unless you are using a rooted Android device). For a game that requires IAPs to make money, this is nothing less than criminal IMO.

Slavers, Whales, Drowning Sailors are randomly generated. There is a perk called "Dynamic Event" that improves your chances.

You don't have to do the survivor (10 battles) or SuperShip missions immediately - you can move on and come back when you have a Man O War and ace them - particularly if you add some legendary perks.

Best way to make money fast: Kill Traders - they yield 10x cash that navy ships do. Use Tactical mode for getting around fast. Traders don't re-spawn - just re-load the location (map screen, then click on your current location) to get a bunch more. It is easy enough to make 50k-100k/hr.

Don't bother fishing unless you are having trouble sleeping - it's a waste of time and money.

Hope that helps. I have written a review on my blog ([url]http://wizardprang.wordpress.com/2014/09/12/arrrr/[/url]), and also a list of bugs I have found ([url]http://www.wizardprang.com/acpbugs[/url] - no spoilers though!) I am writing a Game Guide - free version is at [url]http://www.wizardprang.com/acp[/url] (Admin, no evil is intended, please remove the links if I am breaching forum rules), or just email or pm me.

Default Assassin's Creed Pirates Walkthrough & Tips

This is a short walkthrough with some tips to help my fellow pirates save a lot of time and effort.

When you start the game, you are taken through the primary missions of Devil's Rock and Scorpion Reef, which also serves as a tutorial. Upgrading your ship to the schooner "The Wanderer" (thankfully for free) and buying your first crew member (which gives you the Speed Up rare perk) are non-optional. At this point, you are upgraded to Level 2 and given the freedom to roam around Scorpion Reef. From here on, all decisions you make affect how fast and how much efforts you spend to you progress ahead in the game.

Time for a few tips:

1) Upgrade your ship speed (1000 coins) and the speed up perk (1000 coins) right away. You will immediately recover these coins because this completes 2 of the 3 daily challenges.

2) Do NOT spend a single coin from this point onwards. Any purchases you make on early in the game are sheer waste of coins. Despite Jumao telling you earlier to keep purchasing crew members frequently, you shouldn't!

3) The entire game can be completed by owning just 2 ships, one of which you already own. The next ship on your radar should be the frigate "The Fearless" which costs 90,000 coins so start saving up.

4) This is probably a good time to check out the Animus (pause menu), the panel at the top of the screen when you hit the top right icon showing your current Level. Make sure you check out the Profile (leftmost icon) and Legend under Settings (rightmost icon).

5) The game has 4 types of resources: Coins, Supplies (or fish), Wood and Books. Coins are needed for any and all purchases and upgrades. Supplies are needed for progressing to next level, Wood is needed to upgrade your ship and Books are needed for upgrading perks.

6) Your aim should be stockpiling all these resources to make some heavy purchasing at a later point in the game. The best way to earn these is to complete the main missions (assassination, mystery, race or merchant). In any particular map, all of these missions give the same rewards, so pick a mission which takes relatively less amount of time and keep playing it over and over till you level up enough to reach the next level. Assasination and race missions are usually the quickest.

7) There are a lot of optional missions for each map. Completely ignore those until you finish the final map, there will be plenty of time to go after these later.


Keep playing the main missions, you should reach Level 5 (3rd daily challenge finished here) in no time at all so you can progress to the next level. Keep using the strategy pointed above in Tip 6) to progress to the next map and so on and so forth till you reach the Grand Bahamas.

GRAND BAHAMAS
While playing Alonzo's story in this map, towards the end Hume shows up with his Man O'War called King George. This is a tricky battle, especially with our primitive ship. While it is possible to sink this ship with just "The Wanderer" and no perks, its not a reliable strategy. It pretty much boils down to how the Man O'War uses the unavoidable broadside attack. So I just quit the main story and kept doing the assasination missions. I already had 60,000+ coins at this point and each completed mission gave me 3,500 more. 10 short missions later, I had 95,000+ coins which I used to buy the Frigate "The Fearless" and immediately upgrade its power to the max.

Now you are free to remove the spending ban I had put earlier on and decide how you want to spend. Obviously you have gone a long while without buying any crew members (and the perks they come with) so take a look at the tavern. What I would personally suggest is to save up 100,000 coins more and buy Calico Jack (Gun Crazy legendary perk) as soon as you can. It's extremely useful and makes winning battles a breeze. I also upgraded "The Wanderer" speed to max, so it becomes my racing ship while "The Fearless" is for all other missions.

Finish Alonzo's story, keep progressing to the next map till you are at the last map. From then on, it's totally upto you. Personally, I kept earning coins at this level till I had a couple of million (it sounds long but achieveable in a couple of days). First I bought all the non-legendary crew (the ones in white, not gold) in the Tavern and upgraded the useful perks to full (see list below). Then I bought the Man O'War "The Untamed" (it's slightly slower than the Goliath but better defense and half the price, so it's a good deal), upgraded it to max, bought Paulsgrave (Damage x2 legendary perk) in the Tavern and pretty much became invincible.

So the plan is pretty simple. Reach the last map as soon as possible, playing only Alonzo's stories and main missions. Then repeatedly keep playing the race/assasination missions or killing the super ship on the last map to earn coins and resources in crazy quick time. Buy/upgrade your ships and perks as you see fit. Then go back to the previous maps to finish the main and optional missions to get 100% Synchronized (Completed).

Other General Tips:

1) Treasure maps are found in crates after killing the Aggressive (Red) naval ships or Neutral (Gold) trader ships. Except in Devil's Rock, where the treasure map is found after killing the Super Ship.

2) While completing any main missions, its not compulsory to achieve all the secondary objectives in one go. So when u r playing race missions to earn resources, don't forget to use boosts to quicken the pace.

3) Using Speed Up perk in race missions doesnt qualify as a boost. So use it as frequently as possible and fully upgrade it when you can spare the coins.

4) The quickest way to earn only coins (but not other resources) is to defeat the super ships. Sinking each super ship gives u a cool 15,000 coins. Just reload the map and that cash cow is all ripe for killing again.

5) Don't play the game with just one set of perks loaded. Keep swapping them as needed for various missions (see list below). Trust me, makes a huge difference.

7) Whaling during night is a major pain in the ass, since u can't spot the whale at all. Just reload the map till u get good weather.

8) During whaling, make sure ur swipes are nice and long, but fast. I have lost many a whale despite making the proper swipes.

9) In the Mayaguyana map, finishing the mystery missions in the allocated time becomes difficult. The solution is to switch to a faster ship and avoid combat with the sentries. Its a bit difficult, but definitely doable with the Discretion & Harpoon King perks.

10) U get a spider shot after 5 successful perfect dodges (in cannon dodge mode) or 12 perfect defenses (in cannon defense mode). So keep a count while fighting the super ships or in the Survival missions. Sadly the count resets if u get even a minor hit, so be careful.

11) Fast travel locations are a pain in the ass and counterproductive, so do not capture them till all the other missions are done. You want to travel as much as possible in tactical mode to get dynamic events like treasure maps, slavers, drowning men and whales.

12) Don't upgrade any perk unless you have bought out all the crew members. Why? Because there are so many perks in the game, a better one might just be around the corner. So, wait till you have them all and are sure which ones you are going to use frequently (see list below).

13) Don't bother engaging the agressive (red) ships. Not worth the efforts as they give very few coins, just avoid them as much as possible.

Lastly, fishing is a complete waste of time. Sure, it may look cute and fun.....but still a complete waste of time.
