Spice up your life, PvP Style!

So, I've become bored with pillaging again. I imagine most of you have as well. So, I've thought up a silly little idea. PvP's, for me, have been the most enjoyable part of the game, even more so than Sea Monster Hunts. And I feel that people should have a real incentive to do them, seeing as the pay is usually terrible, and that's a primary reason that people avoid them lie the plague. So, what do I have to offer, to excite people about PvP's for a timespan of more than just a week? Well, I'll tell you!

I will be placing bounties on not pirates or crews, (Unless it's a large, independent crew) but on Flags that are on the Malachite Political Map found Here. These bounties will be changed every week, on Saturday. I'll update the thread each day. As it stands, the pricing scheme stands as this:

For winning a battle with the same sized ship as the other person, 10k. For each ship size higher than your own, an extra 5k. For convenience, I shall place ship sizes as so:
Sloop,
cutter/dhow/fanchaun/longship,
Junk/Baghlah/Merchant Brig,
War Brig/Merchant Galleon,
Xebec.

If you sink the other ship, you will win 30k.

Screenshots must be provided of the engagement, and the winning of the battle or sinking, with the current time (used by /info) in each screenshot. You may only post the screenshot if you are on the winning ship. If the officer running the pillage is unable to post on the forums, but you can, then feel free, but the naver will still receive the bounty.You may not post for the opposite ship, if you lose, and they win.

Every class you're over the other ships class, according to my scale, the bounty goes down 5k. So, for example, a dhow could still make a bounty on a sloop, but it would be only 5k, instead of 10k. A sinking of a smaller class from a larger class will not count unless the larger class uses the same size cb as the smaller class, and is only a one class difference (sloop-cutter, Baghlah-War brig, etc.). Perhaps this will keep it a bit more even, while still encouraging PvP's without having to worry so much about ship sizes.
Both navers must have at least dist+ Battle navigation.

I will give 15 bounties a week, for both winning battles and sinks. However, after 15, sinks will still receive bounties, but just winning a battle will not.

The flags that are being attacked can also win the money in the same manner, provided they provide the screenshot.

All money will go to the naver, who may keep it all, or may divide between his jobbers, it's his decision.

If foul play is seen, or expected, I reserve the right to not pay.

I will use a random generator for the first two weeks, to decide which flags will be bountied. For the third week, I'll create a voting thread, where everyone may post a vote each week for which flag they wish to be bountied. Depending on how this goes,we may or may not continue it.


This week's target (July 22nd-July 29th) is none other than Bite Me!

Re: Spice up your life, PvP Style!

i spose i should ask exactly how random is random ... only because the first crew is LB but then again other ppl might say the same thing if it were there crews so i'll ask what method you used to become "random" in the choosing

Re: Spice up your life, PvP Style!

So if I attack a sloop with war brig there will be no deduction to bounty?

Re: Spice up your life, PvP Style!

To Hissy - I gave each Flag on the Malachite Political Map a number, and then used a random number generator foundHere.

To the other person - I suppose that's a problem. I think what I'll do is change it so for every class you're over the other ships class, according to my scale, the bounty goes down 5k. So, for example, a dhow could still make a bounty on a sloop, but it would be only 5k, instead of 10k. A sinking of a smaller class from a larger class will not count unless the larger class uses the same size cb as the smaller class, and is only a one class difference (sloop-cutter, Baghlah-War brig, etc.). Perhaps this will keep it a bit more even, while still encouraging PvP's without having to worry so much about ship sizes. As this event goes on, we'll make adjustments. I imagine this first month will be touch and go with most all of the rules, and that quite a few adjustments will have to be made.

Re: Spice up your life, PvP Style!

Woudn't you rather put LS in higher class? Considering it can shoot 2 small per turn and has 4 moves...

Re: Spice up your life, PvP Style!

I've considered doing that. But at the same time, it's not strong enough to compete with the class above it. And if I were to move it to a higher class, it would only be to make the PvP of a smaller ship more convenient, while making it more difficult for the rest of the event.

Re: Spice up your life, PvP Style!

you may have mentioned it but are you gonna take out the flag from the list after week is up or is it gonna be put back into the frey?(eventually adding em all back in when they've all been hit) it would seem unfair to one crew if the randomness was not in there favor and say they got 3 weeks in a row of pvp bounties while the others got off free and clear

I forgot to add this, but I have considered this. How it'll work is that after a flag's bounty week is up, they'll have a month of freedom, and then they'll be placed back into the chance of being picked.

It seems silly to keep updating this with nothing going down. Mala, show me you've got that PvP initiative! Updated again, hopefully not for the last time.
