All arguments regarding "it should be heroes vs villains":

Have you played Prelude - Fort?

What about Ramses?

 

Afterall the enemies you fight in arena and hunter are his pirates.

 

Other than him, it makes sense to play as anyone really.

ND is apparently "satisfied" with the state of co-op, which is sad and says how complaisent they are. Bugs, glitches are still present even after update 1.15 (not to mention obvious skins issues with chloe, which have been on for a long while now). Using villiains only adds a bit of variety and ND doesn't seem to br bothered to make any, if slight, changes.
Even begging them to add the other maps to the rotation on arena is out of the question because of "design" problems. Adding new maps would be great, but working with the ones already on the competitive rotation should atleast be tried.
It's like the whole "Wetsuit Elena". They say it's hard, time consuming, etc. but I bet, that if ND would ask programers from this forums to do it, they'd probably do it... maybe even for free, just give them the tools.
In other words, "when there is a will, there is a way"... unless you are ND, which their quote might be "striving to be the best, but we just don't want to" or "we hear ya', but it's just not worth the time and effort".

@sand Eddy's also a pirate. It could be argued that Eddy pretty much killed his own pirates in Fort - Prelude, because Ramses doesn't even know the place.

Well it is pretty obvious that nothing in the Adventure mode is canon...for one Laz, Flynn and Eddy are alive.

We know how Eddy's pirates look from UC1 and we know how Ramses' pirates look as well, and these are obviously his pirates. Eddy even exclaims to them in the chapter "you are sh**y pirates" most likely because they are nothing like his own.

Yeah, exactly, nothing is canon. How can you be sure they're Ramses' if you're not even sure Ramses exists in Co-op universe?

Well, because they are exactly the same as the enemies you fight in single player while in the ship sections. Who are all enemies under the command of Ramses.

They could've gone solo once Ramses 'went for a swim' xD

They just got together and formed an alliance after he was gone Smiley Wink
