A Ship That Sailed 9 Years Ago
Pirate101’s 9th Birthday Contest

Can you believe it!? It’s only been 9 years since Kingsisle has launched Pirate101 to the public! And not just that, the introduction to their 2nd MMO itself was a blast! Whether you first joined this community during the beta stage, or following the trailer they’ve dropped with the first announcement of the game, or when the game first reached live and you purchased the Boochbeard Bundle that would make you the talk of the week if you still own one and appear in Avery’s Court, and of course we haven’t forgotten any of those who have their Marco Pollo’s Map with their Ninja Pig Companions to show off, there were lots of memorable moments in the game’s early days!

But that’s not it… We’re not speaking about just a simple accomplishment that’s taken for granted, we’re speaking about a nearly decade standing MMO in a time where it’s hard for an MMO genre game to be reaching this level of longevity. But Pirate101 has survived and made it!

It’s always that wonderful time of Fall season and especially October for Halloween that create moments and memories to be appreciated. Especially if you are a truly great pirate at heart with an experience enough to make you The Savior of the Spiral, you have lots of reasons to celebrate the existence of this game with this year’s update that has announced that Pirate101’s gears will be turning once again. Hopefully, this progress will bring a promising 10th year Decaversary that each and every Pirate in the Spiral, whether they are proud or an average fan, will be looking forward to it! Speaking of updates… Have you gotten your Fall PvP Champion weapons yet? The original set is back to the PvP Vendor with this Summer’s update!

Back to where we were saying.. Oh yes! 9 years of memorable things.. right? Looking forward to the 10th’s Decaversary, eh? Well, we can’t just skip the 9th while looking forward to the 10th. So in the meantime for the 9th.. We at Final Bastion got a contest for you!

The contest has ended. Thank you for the amazing entries, here are the winners announced below:

First Place – Blake Wright

“What might be just one of many bosses in Mooshu to most, gained a lot more meaning to me in my 3rd playthrough. Upon finishing my fight with Lo Pan, something caught my eye. I had gained 100 or so XP from said fight. Now that might not seem like much, but most fights give like 40 XP. This got the gears in my head turning and made me think: “Would I be able to gain even MORE?”. Long story short, my “top score” was almost 16k XP from one fight after hours in it (and no I wouldn’t break the level cap).”

Second Place – Wolf Walker

“The freedom one experiences in Pirate101 is like no other game. One can buy their very own private island house getaway after years of questing and defeating bosses. Turning an empty space into the ultimate treasure room is a pirates dream come true. These masterpieces will last forever with no cleaning, maintenance, or repairs required. One can finally retire from a pirates life after obtaining a place to call home sweet home. My pirate characters name is Loyal Wolf Walker.”


Honorable Mention #1 – Emily Robertson

“Very odd choice for a screenshot but it has some meaning to me. This was maybe taken a few days after I encouraged my girlfriend to play Pirate101 with me, absolutely no regrets. Every time we got to any major Armada boss, we would have so much fun talking about the character/s and engaging in the combat, the story has become one of my favourites in a while because of these moments.Β Bishop’s boss fights (the screenshot) have always been some of the most enjoyable and funny in a while.

Honorable Mention #2 – Pretty Jewel Jackson

In all the years I’ve played, sailing through Arroyo Grande in Cool Ranch has always been memorable. It’s one of the few passages where beneath you there is scenery. Instead of clouds or seas, there’s a river just below, and the canyons look beautiful. Pretty Jewel Jackson is my pirate’s name “

Honorable Mention #3 – Shy Matthew

This is one of my favorite moments because I randomly met this (at the time) low leveled witchdoctor named Leo who was asking for help to farm Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah in order to buy him as a a companion. My friend (Cruel Zane Kidd) and I helped him out while having casual conversation with him giving him advice and just asking him how his day was and overall it was just a really wholesome moment and I’m glad that we were able to become friends from it

Thank you everyone for your entries and we’ve truly had so much fun reading through them all! And much more fun in voting for the winners to announce. All winners will receive their prizes and will be contacted shortly. We’re preparing for Pirate101’s 10th next year, we hope to see you with us in 2022 in the skyways!
