Re: So You THink You Are A Pirate Sponsorship

I see the prize is 20K, and you are in need of 20K... I would say, that atleast SOME poe should come out of YOUR pockets... it seems wrong to host a mediocre event (not to be rude or anything) and expect someone to fork over 20K, and it being ALL the prizes accumulated into one sum.

I know, someone may step up and donate 20K, like they have for the Black Death Tournaments, But those were widely renowned events.

QFT.

Don't expect to get 100% of the poe used from player donations, if you want to run an event at least use most of your own poe for it, or get OM support.

Re: So You THink You Are A Pirate Sponsorship

How is your pillaging mechanism broken? And what part of it is "Broken"?

Re: So You THink You Are A Pirate Sponsorship

I don't understand how your charting could be broken, and even if it was, someone else could chart for you. Also, I don't believe that you don't have 20k. You were on an Atlantis run last night where you must have made some poe. (I made 9k, and I didn't get that much from the chests) 20k is a simple sum to save up to...even if you can't run your own pillages, you can go on any number of voyages, or even hit the navy. If you have decent stall/shoppe jobs, that would help too. So, come on now, you don't need 20k from us...don't be selfish, spend your own money on your own event.

Re: So You THink You Are A Pirate Sponsorship

Honestly, if you are the captain of a crew and you cannot come up with 20k on your own, you might need to rethink being a captain. The last event I did for my flag, I probably dropped close to 100k on in prizes. Now look at my stats. I'm not any sort of "rockstar" pirate. I didn't use flag funds. This was all out of my own pocket, with a couple small donations from crewmates. Heck, I have spent more than 20k just for one person's in-game birthday present.

It's just ... not that hard to save money with a little work and patience. Seriously. If a 35 year old housewife can do it, I'm sure you can too.
