Pirates of the Burning Sea server names revealed

Mike Schramm

Keen and Graev have the list of servers for the Pirates of the Burning Sea launch, coming less than a month away now. The game will open with 12 North American servers, six European servers, and an unannounced number of Oceanic servers. Some of the servers are named after pirates (Blackbeard, Morgan, Kidd), while others are named after actual places (Guadeloupe, Barbados), and there's no indication from FLS if the separate naming conventions mean anything (WoW, for example, names PvP and RP servers in certain ways from standard PvE servers). If you're planning to set sail in Pirates at launch, now's the time to pick your server. And don't forget that if you preorder the game, you get to jump in ahead of time.

Finally, on an almost-completely-unrelated- but-still-so-strange- we're-reporting-it-anyway note, West Karana points out that one of the servers' namesakes, Antigua, recently became a real place for pirates-- copyright pirates, that is. Antigua (the country, not the server), according to Slashdot, can ignore US copyrights for up to a year. So if you want to be a real pirate, there's only one server to play on.
