Treasure ship/pvp hunt

Ahoy mates! As some of you may have seen, I posted in a thread, designed to bring a certain thing, down a level or two. Apparently, the original poster got exactly what was set before. So, posting here in an entirely different thread, to appease the crowds of people who say I am spamming the forums, and spamming the FB ypp page.

I didn't realize one could spam here. Thought that was what the forums were for.

At any rate, it's PVP time! Player versus Player, in a hunt for riches and fame!
Trmntr (Me) has generously donated a Cutter to chase, for the purpose of honing the skills of pirates on the ocean, and to make riches!
Somewhere on the Midnight ocean (when I am driving) there will be a Cutter, hold filled with commodities, maybe some gold, cloth, and yes, fruits, as well as a minimum of 100,000 pieces of eight. That's right, 100K! Plus Cannonballs, plus rum, plus grog and swill! Yes, it's all there and ripe for the taking!

All you need to do, is /w Trmntr to find me, and find which route I'm on, and set you and your crew to sail! I will be with only my bots, since this is purely for fun, and I don't intend to put up a fight. You need to chase me, for I will run, and running I can do well. :P I have won several sloop races, both with crewbies aboard and solo, on multiple oceans, so I am able to evade really well.

The winner of this PVP battle, because I will try to run while on the battle board, will also receive FIVE Rogue Points! Yes! You read it correctly, five Rogue Points to do with as you please. Rename a ship, rename your mutt, whatever you choose to do with them. What? Basic rename takes six RP's? Hmmm. Ah well, yer gonna have to earn that one later on. I'll think on how you can do that. >:D

So! This week I will be jobbing around the Midnight Ocean like crazy, gathering the pieces of eight, commods, other stuffs, and cleaning out the litter box. Next week, maybe, I will post on the tournament board, a nice little card. "I just spotted Trmntr in the PVP!"

Once that goes up, know that I will be setting sail, from an unknown arch, and unknown island. Upon the finish of the tournament (10K worth), I will set sail. So once "Insert Name has won Trmntr's Tournament!" is on the screen, I click the sail button. It is up to you to figure the route I am taking, and where I am going.

I know, some will ask about me porting. Answer is yes. If I can make it to port, we will do it again the following day, all over again. I will not, however, simply make it a whole 2 lp course from one island to another. It will be a minimum of ten LP's, but more like 15-20. However many islands are in those LP's, doesn't matter. It will be ample opportunity to get your ships into place, and intercept the target. This is like a scavenger hunt, and game of hide and seek. Unlike BK's, however, you don't need a compass to find me. Just use the basic pirate skills and come and PVP me.

As stated earlier, the CB's aboard will be used for booty only, and will not be used in a defensive or offensive manner. The cannons will be empty and I will run. If I disengage from the battle successfully, don't expect me to stick around. I'm gonna flee the area quick as can be done, and I won't even look back. :D It's not cowardice if I'm the one submitting my own rules beforehand. lol!

Since I have the entire Midnight ocean memorized in my charts, there is no arch or route that is off limits to me. If you cannot chart your ship to where I am, I suggest spamming your hearties and asking them to come along. Giving you all a wide selection of ships to choose from to attack me with. I certainly hope to draw a crowd of dozens of ships chasing me. :D

Oh, and one more thing, I recall. If I happen to enter a non-sinking Flotilla, whichever arch may have one when the time comes, by all means, the one who autoports me, wins all the commods aboard, and all the cash, not simply a percentage. Plus, you can all stay on that board and through teamwork, sink the flot easily. :D

See you on the ocean!


P.S. There's questions of me simply doing this to attract attention to my crew and flag. Yeah, right. Crew is me. Flag is me. How can I possibly gain any real attention by doing this solo? Most of you on Midnight know me, some like me, some don't. That's okay. I'm not doing this to garner friends, or gain poe. Duh, giving away at least 200K worth of stuff isn't profit for me. 200K? Yep. Gold nuggets, Rogue points, commodities, and pieces of eight. So this is not for profit, but rather getting pirates togother to have fun.
Some have said that I won't last a single LP. Okay, then I invite that player to come along and try it. Not this week's pvp, but the following week. I'll run from that certain pirate, and if he can catch me within one League Point, then by all means, you keep my ship. If you can't catch me, then you be quiet and stop being a braggard. Stop boasting about what you cannot do. And I want nothing else from you.
That's my challenge to that one certain pirate. Anyone else, let's have fun.
The time is set.
The way is shown.
The date . . . is November 17th 6:00 pm game time, Midnight ocean.

Anyone want to go ahead and make a side bet on if I can escape? :P

See you then!

Re: Treasure ship/pvp hunt

So, let me see if I have this straight...

You'll post a tourney, and when it ends is when the chase officially begins, right?

Absolutely. That way (whoever wins don't matter) the majority of Midnight will know when I set sail, and not a moment before. In this way, whichever drivers are looking for me, won't have to go all over the place. I'll start when that ends, and the chase begins.

Oh, and a little side bet is going on. To the first person who gets me at the first LP from my starting point, and I mean the absolutely FIRST lp, that person gets an additional 10K.

Any takers? :D

Looking forward to seeing who is participating Thursday.

Re: Treasure ship/pvp hunt

It was certainly fun while it lasted, and though I never actually caught you, I did come close.

Sorry about what happened later on, though. Sucks that you got thrown off your own ship like that. Didn't know bots could mutiny. o.O

Re: Treasure ship/pvp hunt

Okay mates.
Sad time on the Midnight Ocean. On the 17th of November, approximately at 6:30 game time, I was intercepted by a brigand junk. Not only was the junk "Red", but as I hopped off the carp station to drive the boat, the boat sent me to my home island. "Internal Error" was on the screen. When trying to hop back on, the boat was in battle.
Major bug issues happened that day, but I made things right by the person who's ship was closest to me. Scrach and his crew Scary Kids, did in fact engage in a pvp, and they did in fact win. Unfortunately, thanks to that lousy bug, I'm out an additional 90K pieces of eight. I paid the full amount to Scrach because I was not going to reneg on my promise. Unfortunately, he didn't get the two Krakens blood, nor the black paint or cloth.
So, with all the other goodies aboard, gold nuggets, black enamel, cloth of all types, fruit, I'm hoping that he and his crew enjoyed a pretty good bounty win.
I have asked the developers to please look into the problem, because that kind of thing should NOT happen. It ain't the cash I'm concerned about. That's only two weeks worth of pillies to make up again. I'm just concerned that someone else might get that happen to them, and that would just plain suck.
So, maybe next month, for Christmas, I will run another hunt of sorts. Maybe a PVP, maybe a peculiar type of scavenger hunt. Not sure yet. But, since the developers and programmers of YPP haven't come up with anything new in a while, maybe this will bring back the fun to a game we all know and love.
Thank you to Ebonsol of Midnight Spirits.
Swtbrwneyes of Wolf.
Scrach of Scary kids for hunting me.
It was fun while it lasted! :D
