Also, the announced competitions shouldn't be a test environment for exploits. Or should they?

Still an issue!

Artificially playing slow instead of lazing does the charm.

Specific LP management allows nearly the same score.


Will Obsidian now have tournaments with tracked scores? Will Forculus investigate the issue with actual pirates that know how to break the game?

Could we please get an update on this:
 




The issues are not resolved yet and it is still possible to min-max your score. I have sent Forculus a PM about it but didn't receive a response.

This should be a public concern as it affects every pirate on all oceans.


Could we please get some transparency?

Hey doesntsave,

Quit using my avatar.


As to the topic, yeah manipulation for puzzle comps blow. I was great at bakeoffs, but there's no competing with an impossible score in puzzle comps.
