I haven't played this yet but I bought it anyway. This looks like some great PVP fun. If any of you guys get the game lets all take a ship out and let the comedy begin!

We will have to be in TS or whatever we are using these days. Looks like a lot of fun!

Watched a few videos. Some things need fixing but it looks like a ton of fun. You can actually grab a cannonball in your hands, board a ship and smash people with it.

I'm buying it too. All the videos I watch are epic!

Sure the melee combat isn't that great but everything else makes me want to hop in game! I assume to be serious in this game we'd have to wait until a later release, but right now at $20 for what looks like an evening of fun and full of laughs, I'm down.

I played for an hour tonight. It's a really fun game and the score system rewards teamwork more than anything else. One round I placed third by just repairing damage and loading cannons. The melee combat needs a lot of work, there's some missing animations so it looks lame and feels ridiculous but it's like original CS with knives. The gun game is alright. I failed with the grenade launcher hard but the musket is pretty decent. There doesn't seem to be any bullet drop yet but that's alright. I had a lot of fun. I just wish I had a captain that called the sides better for the cannons.

Did anyone else grab this? I'm having a ton of fun playing it. Would love to give a coordinated effort a shot and see how that goes. I've just been pugging other people's ships, it's be crazy. Some are serious and we do intense battles, others goof around and we beach our ships and have land battles on carribean beaches, which is also epic.

Though I saw a lot of bugs at first I've gotten over them. You get used to them and learn to play around them. So far I've specialized in repair. I still haven't figured out how to put out fires, especially when I'm on fire. The captain role is of the highest importance and makes or breaks a game. One crappy captain and your whole team can lose. There's a lot of potential with this one.

It does get repetitive but luckily the sides change players frequently and there's always new captains and new strategies. I have only played one game where all the ships are coordinated, and it was amazing.

I have not played a game where we've used grapples or grapeshot effectively. Most ships avoid them and just pull up broadside and fire cannonballs which kills gunners. I think if anyone can load the cannons strategically and use them effectively, it's TG.

New update!

http://steamcommunity.com/games/Blackwake/announcements/

They added spyglasses and spotting to make coordination that much better. Next update should feature a new game mode where you have land battles and boarding to capture or defend treasure. Also, boarding pikes.... I'd love to spear people.... and throw harpoons at them!
