Publisher NGames has announced a plethora of special events to celebrate the closed beta launch, including:

Event one: Play and become the VIP (Very Important Pirate!)

During the closed beta, players can become a VIP3 and receive 200 gold just for creating and customising their very own character. With a range of colourful character options and a choice of four professions (classes) on offer, players can become the pirate they've always wanted to be.

Event two: Stay online, win gold

Every pirate worth his weight in sea salt has a yearning for gold treasure. With the Pockie Pirates closed beta, players can simply click on an icon at the top of their screen to receive free gold every day.

Pirates can also earn gold through fishing and exploring the oceans for treasures.

Event three: Gold for bug submission

NGames are rewarding pirates with 2 items of gold for every bug they discover and report to the developers. Make the seas less rough and earn gold in the process "yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for you".

All events run from June 21st until the end of the closed beta. For more information and the full list of events, visit the official Pockie Pirates forum. http://pirates.forum.game321.com/

Team Battles

The closed beta is kicking off with regular crew battles, which pirates can join every day at 19:00 (CDT).

Players can hire friends to be part of their ship's crew. As a role-playing game with highly customizable character options, ship captains need to pick their pirates and organize them carefully in order to succeed in combat.

Team battles bring crews and fleets together to battle each other until a winner is declared. Each team captain strikes first, with the other players then striking automatically. Upon victory, winning teams are rewarded with random luxury prizes.
