I'm an old guy who started playing Pirate101 as something my 10 year old son and I could do together and I absolutely love Cool Ranch. It also helps that I am a fan of Westerns and can appreciate all the little Easter eggs that the developers have put into this zone. Almost every character and every boss has roots in western lore whether they are based on a real person or a popular fictional character. For those of us who are old enough to get all the references, it is a wonderful tribute to the great old west.
I like the western style although at first i was a little confused since from my knowledge the golden age of piracy ends before of 1800 (for sure before of the American Civil War) and to pass from Skull-Island -> Monquista -> Valencia to Cool Ranch could be a time travel wich chould make proud Doc Brown , well i accepted this and by moving on i would ask if in future will be possible to buy some 1800's steamer for to travel around the skyways, i think it would be fun .
