i haven't read much on it yet so i can't really discuss, actually it was quite a surprise to see that a remake of pirates is in the works [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
as for the fights, afair, the duels were pretty easy when your party was an overwhelming force so it didn't depend much on your actual dueling capabilities but was a mere simplification of the calculated battle between partieswith a little help by the player.
i guess it would become pretty boring to have some RPG type fights between parties of characters - at least for me that type of fights always becomes repetitive and uninteresting very quickly.
what i would have liked to see in pirates back then was to not be restricted to the caribbean seas - let me sail through magellan's pass and rob the spanish in the pacific, or the portugese in asia, dammit! [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] maybe it's possible in that release - but i guess not.
