Honey Badgers Cleo giveaway Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I have been thinking for weeks what I can do for an event to give away this island to a flag that would like some island owning experiance. After talking with friends, flag mates, and crew mates, I have come up with an event that I believe will be beneficial for the ocean. The event will be reguler blockade style, the flag with the most points, will win the island, but there are a few perks to it. Everytime you sink another flag, 25points is added to your score, and 25 points is subtracted from their score. Every time you take a flaming poop on another ship, its minus 25 points from their score. Sloops only are aloud in this event, but you can have as many ships in as you wish. Condition number 2: ONly flags with either no island, or an island that is an outpost or MEDIUM island ONLY can participate in this event.Now here is the big kicker, im a pirate that pretty much trusts anyone, and I would like to extend that trust to the ocean. This final condition is one that I of course can not monitor, its more based on your integrity as a person. You must have at least 2 players on your ship that do not play Puzzle Pirates currently. (This is defined as maybe a real life friend who has never played the game before, someone that has not logged on in a while, or has "retired" does NOT count as one of these players) again, this is completely a integrity thing, there is no way I know if you are telling the truth, so please do your best to be honest mates. The winner of the 1 round event blockade will be the new owner of Cleo. You must have established fame. Must be 2 new players PER SLOOP. or if you bring in 3 sloops I will lower to 1 Greenie PER sloop (Greenie of course being a NEW player)


I am setting this event to begin, April 7th, 2013. at noon Pirate time. If you have any questions, shoot myself a PM or contact me on game. Sign ups can be posted here, PM, or to myself on the ocean.

What does that mean? Every time we shoot them?

Are we allowed to ask other flag members to help us aside from the two greenies? And is there a requirement on how old the flag is or what rating?

how are the new players monitored? i imagine some may create a new pirate and simply just use it for the blockade and then never log on again? to me this seems like a huge gap in the rules? also, does there have to be two greenies on every sloop that is entered or just two per flag?

What a great way of taking a proactive approach to adding players to the ocean or reinvigorating old ones. I have NO idea if it will work, no idea how you will monitor it, no idea if people will be trusted (I REALLY hope they do as you ask) - but kudos to you for doing something!!!

As I said in the original post, that i can not monitor this... This is integrity, if you feel the need to cheat that is on your conscience.

You guys know that condition is BS right?

I understand what your trying to do..... But Bullcannon.


I just wanna get this straight, you took Cleos off a small flag that never had another island just to give it away to a flag that does not have a island? Did I get this right?

I have held it for 2 months now, I built a Gov building on it, and have taken great care of the island. I do not see why giving away an island in a event is such an issue? I understand where you are coming from about me obtaining it from a small flag, but when I originally took the island, giving it away was not on my mind. Just recently I have decided to do an island giveaway, and out of my 3 islands that is the one most expendable.

Also when I took Cleo, I was a small flag, I had 1 crew (that was mine) with 25 people in it, mostly alts. Their flag had 42members, (from what i understand mostly alts as well) It is not my fault they did not defend, I can do whatever I see fit with the island, now that ive grown a little larger and have more commodities i am moving on to bigger targets, giving other people a chance to have a island of their own who necessarily cannot just go out and blockade people is something I do not see a problem with.

You are a flag of 43 yet you talk about an island like its your own personal property. Islands don't belong to people, so I am assuming its your flags idea to give Cleo away, right?

Don't hate on the guy just because he's giving away an island. You also have given an island away after taking it. If he want to give it away, why not?

I'm not hating on him, I like the fact flags give away islands. I just don't like the whole "my island" as if they are personal property, when they do indeed belong to a whole flag - not one person.

I think you need to direct your dislike more at the posters who are calling BS on the event because of the rules Crowned has put in place, rather than a single comment I made.

Please, inform us who else has given away an island in the past other than Calamarie & Tyranny in this thread? Prior to your posting.

DI to MM was not a giveaway, it was a transfer from flag to flag, as part of a merger, and it was done in blockade-form, not even transferring.

Try again.

Are we allowed to ask other flag members to help us aside from the two greenies? And is there a requirement on how old the flag is or what rating?

Did they change things to allow greenies to generate influence? Because if you're supposed to get points and they don't generate influence... then you're going to need other people on the ship in order to get points.

you do have to have 3. But last time I checked a sloop can hold 7... 7 -3(greenies) -(the 1 subbed bnaver) = 3 spots left for that bnaver to job up to 3 more pirates (only needing 2 more subbed players)

Im having to call the event off for now. I did not know I had to schedule the event 14 days in advance. Our flag will redo the event when it sets up to our schedule. Sorry for any inconvenience
