In the last decades both sides suffered terrible losses in mutual fights and now the Black Flags members are scattered in the outer parts of the galaxy.

The Space Merchants: Arena player can play against opponents on the same platform (Platform arena) or against players on all platforms (Global arena). Best players are shown in leaderboards and their glory persists to the end of days.
