PvP League

Hello Hunter,

Goldhat and I have been kicking around an idea. We were thinking of a PvP League.

Here are some basics to the idea.

1) Each week the event could be hosted at a different Island.
2) An entry fee (fee amount would be determined by hosting flag).
3) Entry fees would be used for prize packages.
4) It can be 1 vs 1, or a last man standing (just like Immy's was).
5) Sinking/non-sinking would be determined by hosting flag.

Your input would be greatly appreciated so we can fine tune it.

**Edit was for typo's

Re: PvP League

Not bad of an idea. Different times every week would be nice. That way, you can please every time zone.

Re: PvP League

Yep, the idea rocks mate... one suggestion (and yes, I know some may well shoot me down in flames, but i think it's valid), is about looking perhaps at different events for players with different skills and experience to give some of the greener players a fair shot... how you do this I havent thought thru but dont think it would be too hard and might open up the game play a little more. Looking forward to hearing more. D

Depending on how many enter there could be 2 leagues, one for elites and one for newbies/less able people.

Re: PvP League

Who will keep count of the score?
Would prizes be distributed after every event?
Could one sign up at any league they want or will there be a qualification required?

My thoughts on this would be to make the "newer players" events non-sinking and the "elite players" events sinking. We would really need to rely on "elites" restraining themselves from going in after them for taget practice.

Each week the event will be set up and run from the Island controlling flag.

1 - The Island owning flag would have their own score keepers.
2 - The Prizes would need to be awarded each week at the end of each event.
3 - The elites would not be permited to enter the newer players events, but the newer players would be permitted to step up to try their luck against the more experienced players.

Sorry for the double post. I wanted to give answers to each person seperately.

In view of the current doubloon<-->PoE prices, can I recommend not making all that many sinkers? While my shipyard would love the business, and I know the elites can afford it, it might be nice to to burn too many unneeded doubloons.

Re: PvP League

I have already worked out most of the kinks of this idea, I am

currently having trouble coming up with the three classes of skill.

Im looking for three titles to be given out so we can identify one from the other. My point system for titles are going to be lowest is a 1 middle is a 2 and top is a 3. If a 1 challenges a 3 the 1 would either win 3 points or lose 1. But, if the 3 refuses he is docked 3 points for declining a challenge from a lower rank.

So, all im asking for are titles for those 3 for my system. After I finish working it all out i will make a new thread showing all the rules, how its balanced, and thanking those for helpful input. Come on hunter lets think :P

I know that Drake, later Twisted, ran a Hunter PvP Ladder that was rather successful though no cool prizes other than PRIDE. These, were 1 versus 1 battles which essentially pitted players ability to solo a sloop (and to some extent, swordfighting skill) against each other.

Are you thinking more about a team-style PvP? Similiar to the OCL Sea Battles?
Or something like The Eye's Hunter Blockade League with prizes?

Because all of the above I have participated in and would certainly participate in again, given the time.

We were thinking it could be all of the above. Some people would like 1 vs 1's and then others would like battle royal (last man standing) and others might want multi pvp (teams). It would depend on the event set up by the Island owning flag and the navvers involved. We could have a little of everything. I'll talk with Gold and a couple others to see if we can iron out the details and get a better (more detailed) answer for this question for you.

Also, that was me going suicidal for the last turn.

Not completely, you would want to slow the other competitors down, so you would tend to shoot them also, at least that's what happened to me and what I did to others after wards.

It's called strategy. And everyone knows i'm a retard by the way that I bnav. I still sunk you. And *cough*I won.*cough*

And if I suck, you suck more, since *you* were the one that sunk. You can't say I lucked you out because I'm pretty sure we both had the best sailors.

Lol,you need to calm down, didn't mean anything serious from it, and yes it was pretty even with jobbers, until they got bored watching your "strategy" and left which coincidentally was when you decided to actually fight. And you said yourself that you were running.
