Worth it
A general question about whether this game is worth the price or not. For example are there regular updates with bug fixes or content. How many game modes are there, maps. If there are lots of people playing and if there will continue to be in the future. Thanks.

I like the game a lot, but it is not worth the price.

No regular updates with bug fixes or content.
No auto-balance, so teams are often stacked.

It's no surprise, then, that server population is low.

The game has a lot of promise, but the developers should sell it to a company that wants to work on it and is competent enough to do so. They spent the time and energy, however, to have t-shirts and mugs printed. Wow.

We have released 3 versions after the initial release so far:
Dec 10th, version 1.01
Dec 20th, version 1.1
Jan 2nd, hotfix 1.1

We're working on another update with bugfixes and some new content at the moment but unfortunately can't give an exact release date for this yet. The guys working on the other stuff are faster than the guys working on design, code & gfx.

I have had this game for not even a month and have racke dup 50+ hours on it.

I find that finding players is a problem at times. But when you play at the right time its a treat.
The community of dedicated players are all really nice and if you dont know how to play you can stand on a ship and watch while gaining exp to help you get started with the perks system.

This perk system could be better, It has many Extreemly usefull perks then totally pointless ones.

Summing up. this is a really good game for all ages, and great fun while learning how to get on with other people in order to make an unstopable force of buccaneers that are addicted to magic

Not worth it, keep your money and wait for updates.
For the moment the game looks more like a beta than a finished product.

I really regret my purchase.

The game has potential but until more contents come out it's repetitive and the lack of auto balance is a big black point.

If you like the premise it is worth it, especially if you like action games. However, it's not what I thought I was buying, because I had only played versions prior to the new release, and the removed some of my favorite features and added some new features that messed with the playstyle (perks and infinite range gliders). To me it's not worth what I payed because I thought it was a game that it isn't, but I would reccommend it if you haven't played the old versions, or did and didn't like them.

I bought it after TotalBiscuit's video and I personally prefer Guns of Icarus Online over AirBuccaneers for varius reasons, but considering that this game cheaper, if you are looking for this sort gameplay and style, I'd say it's worth it.

I like it, picked it up during the sale for -33%, now it's -50%, damn. But still, was worth the purchase for me, so it's definitely worth it at -50%
