Bullet redskullWhat is the Grog Blog?

The Grog Blog is your way to speak directly to the Pirates Online Crew. In the Blog, you can share your thoughts on the game - so tell us what you like or don't like. We encourage all your comments - both positive and negative.

Bullet redskullHow are comments selected for the Grog Blog?

All comments are pre-moderated for length, clarity, and content. When we review the Blog submissions, we look for comments that pertain to the topic and are player friendly - rude or explicit language is not accepted. All comments/submissions are subject to policies outlined in our Terms of Use. We make every effort to display an equal amount of both positive and negative comments -- although due to the large number of comments we receive and display limitations, not all comments can be posted.

Bullet redskullCan you give me some tips on getting my comment posted?

Due to the high volume of comments we receive on every subject, following these tips will increase your chances of having your comment posted on the Grog Blog:

Stay on topic. If the conversation is about weapons, keep it about weapons, talking about ship battles are out of context unless you're talking about cannons, which are of course, weapons.

Use your Pirate Name or make up a name, but make sure it's acceptable, i.e. player friendly. Disney character names, such as Captain Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann, or Barbossa will not be accepted.

Be clear in the thought you're trying to communicate, saying something like "I hate the Quest that gets you the thing that helps you beat that monster," could be less vague, reference game items and locations by actual names.

Keep your comments player friendly, it's OK to challenge or question someone's comment, but don't be rude or vulgar.

No HTML links, if you run a site called Pirate Cooking or have an image to share -- sorry, this blog is not for personal promotion.

No inappropriate language. We have players of all ages -- please keep that in mind as you post comments.
