Sailing Bake-Off - Sunday 4th January 2009, 8:30am

What: Old-Style All-On-A-Ship sailing bake-off
Date: Sunday 4th January
Time: 8:30am game time (use /info to find out game time)
Who for: All the sailors on Cobalt!
Who by: Apollo / Sun


Here's how it will work.

  • At 8:30am game time, I will put two event whisks up on the Noticeboard. These appear on the Events tab of the noticeboard at any colonized island.
  • Each event whisk goes to a bake-off ship. You may whisk to either. You do not need to be jobbed into the crew to take part.
  • These two ships will run parallel sailing bake-offs. If fewer than 140 participants whisk onto the two ships, we will merge onto a single ship for the bake-off.
  • I will not broadcast the event unless participation is much lower than expected.
  • Each ship will have plenty of stations for the competition puzzle. Find a station as quickly as possible so that you are not hunting for one when we start. There are stations all over the ship, including throughout the main deck, down in the hold, and in the cabins.
  • Stay quiet and do not spam. Keep chat and greetings to tells.
  • I will keep the whisks up on the board for approximately 15 minutes, or until the ships are full, whichever is the earlier. Once the whisks have gone from the noticeboard, entrance to the event is closed. Be careful not to "fall off" the ship. Participants will not be jobbed into the crew to get them back on board.
  • Once the whisking time is over, or when the ships are full, (whichever is the earlier), I will start to give instructions for the bake-off.
  • From this point, spamming or unnecessary chatter will cause you to be planked.
  • Once I have run through the instructions, the bake-off will begin.
  • In these bake-offs, the contest will consist of a single 30-minute puzzling session. We will set sail, engage with another ship, and stay in sea battle for 30 minutes. We will then disengage and return to port.
  • Competitors must be on a sailing station from the beginning of the puzzling period, and must stay on station throughout the contest, until we reach the island at the end. You may dismiss and re-take the station if you need to, but you may not stay off-station. This includes pirates who disconnect, who will get about one minute to return to station. In order to avoid confusion, anyone remaining off-station after a warning tell will be planked.
  • The duty report at the island (not the one at disengage) defines the winners.
  • For each bake-off ship, a real-life prize will be available as an option on the prize list, as well as a colored familiar, rare furniture and trinkets. There will be 12 prizes offered on each ship. Each of the top 12 finishers on the duty report chooses one prize from the list.
  • Prizewinners must stay on board. If you are not on board for prize distribution, you forfeit your prize, and the next best finisher is added to the list of prizewinners.
  • In-game prizes will be distributed immediately after the bake-off. Winners who select real-life prizes will need to petition or PM me immediately after the event with a real name and mailing address for the item to be mailed to them.

Prizes
There are 12 prizes available on each ship, and each prizewinner gets one prize and winners will take their pick in order (first place chooses first, followed by second, etc). Note that this means you cannot win a familiar AND a real-life prize!

  • Real life prize*
  • Yellow/gold parrot
  • Sleeping pig or piglet
  • Sleeping tortoise or turtle
  • Leviathan's tooth rare furniture
  • Stone tablet rare furniture
  • Magenta rose x 3
  • Purple lily x 3

* The real-life prize is a choice between a tote bag, a mousepad, a mug (various designs), a pack of Y!PP playing cards.

This prize list is per ship, so if the bake-off contestants are all on one ship, just one set of these prizes will be awarded.

Note: If I am running this bake-off on TWO ships, please be patient if there are delays as I give instructions, answer questions, or distribute prizes.

Look forward to the event! Just one question, you have (as bolded above) it stated that you can't win both a real life prize and a familiar, but I don't see a familiar as one of the listed prizes. Can we win a familiar in this event?

Re: Sailing Bake-Off - Sunday 4th January 2009, 8:30am

I agree that future bakeoffs could be improved if the scheduling didn't allow inter-ocean alting. This makes it fairer for the natives of the ocean, and ensures that the people who are good at a certain puzzle win things for their skills. Most inter-ocean alts sell the items they obtain for POE, which gives the players with more POE a much larger chance to gain rare items. Since the point of a bake-off is to reward players who puzzle well, I believe certain changes could be made to ensure that the prizes that actually end up in the hands of an ocean native are rewarded because of their puzzling skills and not the large amount of POE they have.

I think you should need a certain amount of experience to participate in competitions/tournaments with high-stakes.

Not only that. Maybe there should be a requirement such as, only allowing subbed accounts to participate? Perhaps this would discourage the casual competition ocean hopper and encourage more subbed accounts? Just a thought. It is very frustrating to know that no matter how hard you try, there is a very good chance that someone and ALT, who doesn't even regularly play on this ocean, is going to win. Oh well. /me shrugs

Re: Sailing Bake-Off - Sunday 4th January 2009, 8:30am

I came to Cobalt for the fun of competing in a Bake-Off for my favourite puzzle. As I don't, and never will, play on a sub ocean, I have been swayed by the number of 'h8h8h8' tells ingame and the posts in this thread, and I'm going to give the familiar away in some way or other.

On a lighter note, I'd like to thank Apollo for running such a fantastic series of bake-offs, see you at the next one (as long as it isn't Carp, ew). :)

EDIT: I managed to give it away a lot faster than I thought I would. Congratulations to Hohumdiddly for finishing his event ^_^

Yes, thank you very much for the kind offer. It goes to show you that some people do it for the pure enjoyment and challenge when they cross-ocean job, and not as a means for getting more poe. Best of luck to you in the future mate!

Re: Sailing Bake-Off - Sunday 4th January 2009, 8:30am

Pre-tarting: Thanks for the bake-off, Apollo! I had fun. Congrats to everyone who won spiffy prizes. Thanks for having more than just a handful of prizes!

 
Most inter-ocean alts sell the items they obtain for POE, which gives the players with more POE a much larger chance to gain rare items.
IMO this is far better than it just sitting in the inventory of an alt that never logs on. Also, the ability to purchase a familiar is nice for the vast majority who have no hope of ever being #1 in one of these puzzle events. IMO buying a familiar is like winning the "all-around pirate" award.
 
I agree that future bakeoffs could be improved if the scheduling didn't allow inter-ocean alting.
Simultaneous identical bake-offs on each ocean would be great.

Finally: big big thank you to Cobaltgeo for trading his parrot to Hohum. Familiars need light and fresh air! Well done, sir :-)

Why does it matter if an alt participates in our bakeoff? If you were better than them, then you should be able to beat them. Does it really matter if someone is playing on their alt?

It does if it conveys an advantage (though these people should be getting complained for alt abuse, then); there may be an optimal level for stars in a puzzle.

As far as other oceans go, though...it's more a nuisance than anything else. (For one, it can increase the overall quantity of competition, even if it doesn't increase the quality of it...or even keep home ocean players out.)

However, I'm pretty sure that home ocean mains and alts typically take home the vast bulk of prizes, no matter how many people complain otherwise...:P

I came to Cobalt for the fun of competing in a Bake-Off for my favourite puzzle.


I've entered a whole lot of bake-offs, mostly on Cobalt, and the hostility mates show toward the winners has always bothered me. One thing I have said before and I'll say it again is that I really respect the mates who come to compete from the green oceans. Unlike the Cobalt natives competing, they have no chance at any "material" reward for their efforts, only the satisfaction of a job well done. Not that most entrants are focused only on the prizes, I think, but still. The few items I have won I've been able to proudly display on me main on me main ocean. Perhaps due to experience I've become a very good loser. I sincerely congratulate the mates that win, especially the green ocean mates. In the tri-duty bake-off long ago, a mate from Sage (Kerix) won a tortoise and was getting mean vessel chat about it. I sent him a tell to congratulate and welcome him to Cobalt, he offered me the tortoise. I tried to convince him to keep it, offered him a ship to put it on, maybe he could come visit, but he insisted. So I'm waiting for him to come back, as well as another mate from another bake-off named Bigboy (I believe he was visiting from Viridian) who also gave me a tortoise.

I believe the true fun of a bake-off is not in winning the prize, but in competing against other mates in a very difficult environment. Any placement at all (that includes last, it means ye got on the ship and didn't d/c) is something to be proud of. Because they run bake-offs at different times mates should be able to compete at the time that works for them, even if the place is not ideal. So, congrats to the mates who played in this bake-off! I really see a lot more Cobalt natives in the winners' circle this time, and I hope that is because the other times work better so mates get to play at home instead of abroad.

It matters because they can hit an incred alot easier when they are narrow and im illustrious.

And from what I hear, someone from Cobalt did win using an alt on the ship I was on because they wanted to "even out the grounds", but, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

And from what I hear, someone from Cobalt did win using an alt on the ship I was on because they wanted to "even out the grounds", but, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

I honestly don't see how entering an alt is "wrong." I am not sure if the same principles apply for sailing, but whenever I do certain puzzles on my fresh alt, it is more difficult to pull incredibles because they are less stable, and when my shiny dies it drops way down.


Also, an alt is a subjective title to give anyone. My captain from Midnight came to compete in the bakeoff fun, because sailing is his favorite puzzle, very similar to Geologist. But, he has been on cobalt since the opening, and has a weight/ultimate puzzle, does that make him an alt? I wouldn't think so based off of his stats.


Lastly, there were many people who were quite rude about an alt winning on the ship, this isn't directed to you bob, you were more polite than some of the other people on the ship. Some people had said along the lines of "cross-ocean scum ruining the fun," (and various complaining) which was struck a cord for me because the winner wasn't cross ocean, nor were they scum. And despite the other winner being from another ocean, he was very generous and certain unscum-like Also, they had said this in front of Apollo's alt, which seemed like a crass comment to make instead of the nice comment of "Thanks for the event."

Anyway, Apollo, I certainly had fun despite what some of the whiners had said on the ship
