Pillage 'til ye Drop! - April 16th to April 24th Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Do you like to feel the salty breeze of the ocean while puzzling? Do you like the intense emotion of battling Brigands or Barbarians?
Then this event is right for you!
From Saturday April 16th until Sunday April 24th every registered crew should try to win as many battles against Brigands or Barbarians as possible!

How to Participate:
(Registration is now closed. You can no longer sign up for this event.)
*Register your crew before Thursday, April 14th at 11:59 PM pirate time.
*To register post your pirate name, crew name and a designated event contact for your crew in the entry thread for your ocean.
* Listing an event contact is optional. The event contact of your crew needs to be a member of the crew and be noted in the crew statement in the following way: "Event Contact "Pillage 'til Ye Drop": (pirate name)".
*Any officer or above at the time of registration may register their crew.
*Set sail and pillage 'til ye drop!

Prizes:

*1st place
Imperial Class War brig, Cupid Class War brig, Inferno Class Sloop, Emerald Class Sloop, Phantom Class Sloop, 4 Sloops
250 rum, 500 small cannon balls and 500 medium cannon balls

*2nd place
Verdant Class Cutter, Harvest Class Sloop, Frost Class Sloop, 3 Sloops,
150 rum and 300 small cannon balls

*3rd place
Frost Class Sloop, 2 Sloops
100 rum and 200 small cannon balls

*4th place
2 Sloops
50 rum and 150 small cannon balls

*5th place
2 Sloops
30 rum and 130 small cannon balls

*6th & 7th place
1 Sloop
20 rum and 80 small cannon balls

Notes:
*We will be checking the number of battles everyday by looking at crew battle records on the rank page.
*Any officer who runs a pillage during that week will contribute to the crew's overall battle count.
*It does not have to be your vessel or your pillage, so long as it's a vessel in your crew that is winning the battles.
*Vessel size doesn't matter and there are no bonus points for pillages on larger vessels.
*There will be no penalty for battles lost, only the battles won count for this event.
*If you borrow someone else's ship, please make sure to restock!
*If you prefer that your ships are not borrowed, make sure to keep them locked.
*Any prizes the registered crew may have won will be delivered to the designated event contact. The event contact needs to be a member of the crew and be noted in the crew statement.
* If no event contact is given, prizes will go to the officer who registered the crew. If more than one officer signed his crew up for the event and no event contact is given, prizes will go to the captain of the crew.
*PvP battles do not count for this event.
*Make sure you port and divide booty every now and then! There won't be any problems regarding this event or battle records, but if your pillage turns into a marathon with lots and lots of battles, the booty division might not credit everyone appropriately.

Time to pillage!
Here are some details relevant for the actual time frame in which your crew's battles will be recorded for the event:
  • All battles fought (and won) from the beginning of April 16th until the end of April 24th will count for this event.
  • A "day" is defined as the 24 hours between midnight and midnight game time with regards to battle records. (Use /info ingame.)
  • Battle records update at about 2am every day.
  • There is a separate thread posted for each ocean in the according event forum. In the second post of each thread you will find a list of the top scoring crews on that ocean, which will be updated on a daily basis (some time after 2am game time).
  • Changing the Event Contact: You are allowed to change your crew's event contact until the end of the event time frame. Event contacts (as per the checks at the start of the event) have been added to each ocean's list of participating crews. We will double check all winners and contacts again before awarding prizes and you may update the event contact until the end of the event time frame. Please do post in your ocean's event thread and update the crew statement if such a change occurs. The updated contact needs to be noted in the crew statement, just posting won't count. Goes without saying that the new event contact must be an active member of the crew. Please note that we will probably not be updating those changes until after the event is over and the contacts have been double checked.

Prizes are per ocean.

Since BK and merchant battles show up in the battle statistics like normal fights against brigands and barbarians, these do count as well.

* If no event contact is given, prizes will go to the officer who registered the crew. If more than one officer signed his crew up for the event and no event contact is given, prizes will go to the captain of the crew.

Are these dates inclusive? i.e. does the event start at 1 minute before 00:01 on Sat 16th and Finish 1 minute after 23:59 on the Sun 24th?

The battle records page will show all your wins for the day of the 16th through the 24th. If it it says 4-16, it counts. If it says 4-24, it counts. (At least that's how I'd do it >.>)

Just to be sure, we're talking about wins, not battles, correct?

Also what determines a tie?

That is how I would do it as well, but rigers may have some other method, however I don't even know if the the battle records page works from midnight to midnight game time (it could be updated at some other off peak time like the ult lists, for all I know it could be that the game calculates if for your system time.

Stephensam's response is correct:
The battle records page will show all your wins for the day of the 16th through the 24th. If it it says 4-16, it counts. If it says 4-24, it counts.
 
That is how I would do it as well, but rigers may have some other method, however I don't even know if the the battle records page works from midnight to midnight game time (it could be updated at some other off peak time like the ult lists, for all I know it could be that the game calculates if for your system time.

We will be using Stephensam's method as mentioned above, it's clear and simple. Crew records update ~3am game time every day, we are still waiting on clarification as if the battles between midnight until the time of the update count for the previous day or the current. More on that later on!
 
Just to be sure, we're talking about wins, not battles, correct?

Yes, only won battles count for the tally but losses do not affect the count in any way.
 
Also what determines a tie?

In the very unlikely case of a tie, Thalia and I (with the aid of mighty Apollo) will decide a suitable tie-breaker ^_^

Thank you all who have taken the time to help us answer the questions. We are very excited to be running this event and we hope you all have a wonderful time participating!

Any battles made, what ever mode the ship is set to will be counted in on your crews Battle Record, and they're going after the record.

Is there any bonus involved for smaller crews?

A crew with only 6 officers (officer and above, ranks) won't win as much battles as a crew with 20 or more officers.

It will be the just the one thread with the scores for every ocean. When we are closer to the start date we will add direct links on the first post of each ocean's entry thread to the battle records for that ocean to make it easy to find.
