Puzzle experience event Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hello!
I've noticed that many times the pirates with high experience in puzzles are called "no lifers" or other mean things. (I saw that some days ago on a ship: someone with Transcendent experience was almost insulted for having it). This made me think of an event to "pay" the pirates who spent a lot of time on puzzles.
--First of all, the event and rules will be announced on Events Thread
--What pirates have to do to participate? They only need to post their pirate name and ocean
--What contains this event? After the time for signing up expires, every competitor will be checked on his pirate page and give points for their puzzles experience
ex: Broad-1pts. Solid-2pts. Weighty-4pts. Expert-8pts. Paragon-16pts. Illustrious-32pts. and so on for each experience
--The person with the most points wins. About prizes, I'd like to see a familiar for top (tan or colored)
--I was also thinking about making categories Piracy/Carousing/Crafting/Overall, and every pirate is allowed to join only one category, but I suppose Overall should be the winner of the top prize
--Also I'm not sure if prizes for tops should be given on each ocean or only a winner for all oceans.


This is the main idea of the event; I would like to see what you think about it and if there is any chance to run such an event. I haven't seen any similar event in the past so it's going to be something new.

I don't really see this as an event per se, but more of a reward for playing a lot.

Hmmm.....it takes a really long time to gain experience in a puzzle. Also someone could enter and win without even doing any puzzling for the event. It also does not make it fair to all players since not all of them are going to be starting at the novice stat. Its a nice idea though, maybe you can expand on it

I agree with the others. You actually don't need to do anything to win this event, you just need to sign up, and the person with the highest exp wins.

To make an event out of this, one solution may be people who sign up start a fresh alt, and given a certain amount of time (1month-2months), they see who can gain the most points. (Using your point system or something similar)

Unfortunately there's people who just booch on puzzles with the navy in order to gain experience already (and then hyperrank to get their stat back to normal), so an event like this is leaving it open for people to do something similar.

They still have to spend time on the puzzle, though. You can't just afk the entire process, or you'd just time out.

I could sit with my laptop on, on a bilge station and move my mouse once every 13 minutes while I did other things, on or off my computer. I don't think that's what Twittly had in mind when he suggested it.

This is correct. I did not have this in mind. There are also auto clickers out there that make them go constantly. :/
