[Blockade Event] Terra, Jan 19, 6PM PST - PoE for Points, 300K prize pot

Score points to win PoE! The more points scored, the more PoE won!

This will be a one-round, non-sinking blockade limited to junks, baghlahs and weaker. The blockade event is three rounds, but that's just to allow people to mess about after the first round with the prizemoney is done. There is no money to be won in rounds two and three, only in round one. You will win the same proportion of money as you do points. Let's have an example!

Say the final scores are:

137 Inelastic Plastic
108 Dumplings for Dinner
76 Briar's Remossed
44 Ineluctable Exhortation
14 Happy Tidings' Undertow
9 Fresh Zeerust
4 Empty Set

137+108+76+44+14+9+4=392

100/392=0.26 (figure rounded up)

137/392=35.62%
108/392=28.08%
76/392=19.76%
44/392=11.44%
14/392=3.64%
9/392=2.34%
4/392=1.04%

That's 101.92% in total, but that's okay.

Money! All results will be rounded up to the next thousand.

107K IP
85K DfD
60K BR
35K IE
11K HTU
8K FZ
4K ES

310K in all.


The money won may be sent to any royal, so please make sure you're all on the same page. I will try to arrange for the money to go out soon after the blockade ends, but if this is not possible and your flag hasn't been paid after a while, please PM me and we will sort it out.

There's a paycap of 900 for this event. If you exceed the paycap, you lose eligibility for the prizemoney.

Mala invaded your flag Avienda. =P
It was very fun and very close. Glad I could help and sink a ship at the same time. Lottiez did a good job. She'd make an awesome VA...hint hint, nudge nudge.

Vice admiral, I think. A terms from smaller oceans that corresponds to a combination of land admiral (LA) and jobbing jontact (JC), if I have understood it correctly. The term probably refers to how the VA assists the board admiral (BA)/sea admiral (SA) in getting the ships he/she needs on the board.

No, the Vice admiral IS the Land admiral. Same thing, just a different name.

Oki.

I only just recently learned the difference between a LA and a JC, so listen to her in this case. :P

Virginia.

Or maybe Veteran's Administration.

Or the country code for Vatican City.

Vulgar Apostrophe's? Vindictive Aardvarks? Voluptuous Alewife?

That last one would make a decent ship name...
