It's been a year and a half since I last looked at Uncharted Waters Online, a nautical adventure MMO that will probably remind many of you of EVE Online or Pirates of the Burning Sea.

I knew that the game would require more concentration and chin-scratching than I was used to in many games, so I was a little worri...
