And here I thought I was the only one who HATED Cool Ranch. Good to know i'm not alone .
However I do appreciate KI putting so much effort into making it. It's one of the complete worlds with a full story around. Which is probably due to it's abundance in pop culture references.

I'm going through the world again with my musketeer. And I've always wanted to get into the world. So i'm going to try to see everything about it in a new perspective.

Xol Akmul is a very weird place - if one of your companions senses that its a different place from where you started.
As for me I consider it a "pocket" world, part of but separate from Skull Island.

I dont dislike Cool Ranch. Sure it doesnt mix well with pirates... but does greek mythology?

Either way KI did a wonderful job with CR, first time I got there I was like "woah" and was really impressed by the view, especially after entering the first town, I felt like in a western movie!

But yeah it tends to get long and I dislike most companions too...

Well I do believe Bonnie Anne's line is just a reference to The Wizard of Oz

Still I do agree it's like a pocket world, is it like Azteca from W101?

It seems to be a small area where the Aztecans escaped to from Azteca proper.

It is lovely. I simply found the quests to be tedious and the animations irritating. And, before the advent of the never to be sufficiently blessed stagecoach, all the backing and forthing were painfully dull.

I wanted to smack Little Timmy upside the head with a clue bat. I was never a fan of the hero-worshipping little kid trope, even though I generally enjoy older (black and white) western movies, and the latter half of CR seemed to be all about hero-worshipping little boys.

Mooshu or Aquila - Not because they're bad by any means (I found much about Mooshu quite breathtaking, actually, which was a pleasant surprise after disliking the area so much in Wizards years ago), but because I'm just not personally into their themes.

I guess one specific thing that strikes me as a little unsettling about Aquila is that the towns seem to feel really empty compared to towns of other worlds. I seem to recall entering a tavern in one Aquilan town, and there was literally one NPC in there (maybe two?). It just seemed kind of ghost-town-y in what were supposed to be the population centers of the world. Cool Ranch taverns were always a hoot, packed with people and noise (and Dos Amigos y Uno!).

I'm kind of sad to see all the Monquista dislike. I absolutely loved Monquista, and I'm still dying to hear more about the state of affairs there, what's going on within the Church, and what happened to the Order of St. Simian (I know at least one of their monks is safe - he's often my First Mate!). Diablo Cut was also incredible, and one of my first "wow" moments in Pirate101 where I was just awed by the coolness of an area.

I also -really- enjoyed Cool Ranch, which seems to be another fan un-favorite for some reason. "Too long"? I didn't want it to end! To be fair, the stagecoaches were already implemented when I got there. Yeehaw!

I mean every world has it's ups and downs but the world that I REALLY can't stand has got to be monquista. I hate that it looks so dry and most of the monkeys are stuck up and annoying. Pretty much the only thing I liked about it was helping Gortez start his rebellion.

Port Regal

Regal is just annoying, and when I get to the point where I need to get in I just feel nothing but pain (Luckily only 1 more character needs to do it), the ships you need to defeat in Monq for the collect'em and the defeat 10 is impossible without a friend (unless you're the opposite of me and don't mind boarding), since the strongest ship you have access to at that point is the Bison frigate, >80% of the time it isn't enough to take them down

And when you get into the skyway it's all a breeze, just 17 battles in total (Iago, sewer crabs, scrimshaw rat, 8 battles of Fort Elena, 3 of Dreadnaught and 3 of Gov's mansion) along with 20 ships

Skull Island - especially The Gold Mine. Since I've made a few pirates, it's gotten quite boring and tedious to me.

Monquista because:

Talk to people
Dungeon
Talk to people
Ship battle
Dungeon
Talk to people
Dungeon
Talk to People
Dungeon
Talk to dead monkey
Dungeon
Talk to people

I'm not even joking. This is the world

Well Alex I think that was a very accurate Depiction of Monquista.

Definitely Aquila.

I found it to be dull at worst, although I still enjoyed it thoroughly. It was repetitive, boring, and the writing was incredibly lazy in my eyes.

Regarding Monquista, at least it had a story. Even to this day, I forget what Aquila's story was, it was so forgettable and boring.

Here's my list of worlds from best to worst.
  • Cool Ranch
  • Marleybone
  • MooShu
  • Skull Island
  • Valencia
  • Monquista
  • Aquila

At the same time, none of these worlds are what I would call "bad." Just some are better than others.

Monquista by far. It's kinda just filler in between the end of skull island and the main story, with Marco Pollo's map. It has a boring name, too. they took the species of animal that lives there (as in monquistador) and just cut the end to make it sound like a place. It is also WAY too short. They could have even brought it back for a bit at the start of Aquila, like the whole Port Regal thing before Marleybone. We could have done another quest in it. But no. We just went straight to Aquila (which isn't a bad thing).

Yeah, saying someone is freakishly large when they are not the same species is a bit racist. So, monquistadors are a racist group of people. Congratulations, Monquista.

No. Your not. Cool Ranch is my absolute favorite world! The music is memorable (sometimes, I even whistle the main theme), the companions are memorable, and the stories are memorable! I know it gets a lot of hate for being the longest world, but that's probably partially because the last two worlds (Monquista and Valencia part 1) were so freaking short! Combined, they were probably the length of one normal world in pirate101. It was long so the game in the long run wasn't too short.

Valencia pt 1. I just don't know why it just never really gave me the joy of the other worlds. Now that i think about i think a tomb was one of reasons why i don't like it. Another reason is the town above the tomb. Valencia pt 2 is good though.
