Universe A Presents - Touch My Junk 2 (Island Give-away) Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote


*Amazing artwork by the lovely Cattrin.

Based on the great turnout this event had last time, we are going to run it again, but up prizes, and alter a few minor things, to hopefully increase the fun, and the turnout! We're hosting this event as a thank you to all of our jobbers, and to give non-island holding flags a chance to win Papaya Island!

This event will be taking place, 10:00am (PT) on Sunday, April 14th, 2013. It will be an event blockade, on Papaya Island.

How-to Play:
Each team will enter the board, ocean-side, on a sloop. The junk will enter island-side. To win, you must score the most points, points are scored for every bump on the junk. Sloops will chase and attempt to bump the junk, every bump you get, will be a point to your team. If the junk sinks on your bump, you score 6 points. If the junk is sank, another will be brought in momentarily.

Rules:
-Registration is required in this thread, but can be done at any time, including after the start of the event. Just put yer driver's and flag's name.
-Only non-island holding flags, Element's of Fear, Super Awesomeness, and Rogue's Riding, may participate in this event. (The 3 flags that currently hold islands but may participate, are welcomed to participate because of their recent interest in the island, this does not mean they will show up, but are welcomed to.)
-The event begins at the start of Rd1, and ends on the turn that the round ends, not in between rounds.
-Each team can have 1-7 people, but they must use a sloop.
-Maximum of 1 sloop on the board at a time, per flag.
-Cannons will be ineffective, so no need to bring cannon balls.
-If you sink, you may bring in additional sloops, please send a /tell to Zarchi, so I know that this new boat is you.
-Participants must enter ocean-side.
-If there are ties for any of the top 3 spots, a sudden death round will happen in Rd2 of the blockade, first person to get 3 bumps on the junk wins. Because our governor forgot to make it 2rounds, we're going to turn this into a PVP, first person to land 3 shots on the other wins.

Scoring:
-Bump on the Junk = 1pt.
-Double ram on the Junk an adjacent tile= 2pts.
-Double ram on the Junk from 2 spaces away = 3pts.*
-Sinking bump on the Junk = 6pts. (If two or more boats bump it at the same time, they will be awarded 6pts each.)
-Sinking bump on another sloop = 3pts.*
-If your sloop sinks = -2pts.*
*New or adjusted ways to score points from the previous event.

-Last time we ran the event, people constantly were asking for scoring updates, because it is very hard to count all the bumps, and keep typing who scored what, we will be announcing the score during breaks, and that is it, unless we have a moment to type it and announce it. Please refrain from asking what the score is, as it just makes it harder to keep up with what's going on.

Prizes:
In order of placing, the top 3 will choose their prizes.

-Papaya Island (Or 100k PoE if you do not want the island transferred to you.)
-The junk used in the event, with stock of 100rum, and 250lrg shot.
-75k PoE.
(In addition, all three of the teams captains, will receive trinkets commemorating their efforts.)

*We also will be looking for a few volunteers to help puzzle on the junk, we'll be paying 500/segment for those people.
*We ask that any blockades planned for that Sunday are dropped earlier in the day, or done on Saturday, it would be very appreciated.
*This event is open to all non-island holding flags at the time of this initial post, if a flag enters and then wins another island, they may still participate if they desire.

If no one chooses to take Papaya Island, we will scuttle the island to Barnabas the Pale the following week.

I always wonder why all those events are only open to flags that don't own an island. I for once can't tell my flag: Hey, fun event, let's participate, but even if we win, we get nothing.
On the other hand everyone is allowed to pay 9999 per segment.
All you island give away flags should wonder if you don't want rather to make a pay cap so the flags actually win themselves, not with paid jobbers!

-When we have away Orca, which yer flag won, it was open to all flags. When we gave away Olive, it was open to all flags. This is our first event for non-island holding flags that we have run. We will also be giving away Beta down the line, which will be open to all flags, so stay tuned for that!

-I assume most flags can load a sloop of 1-7 people without jobbing anybody out of flag, or if they do, with few jobbers, as there is only one sloop allowed on the board at a time per flag, (unlike last time this event was run, where we allowed 2) I don't see this being a big enough issue to make a rule about it. I feel anybody who wanted to load a sloop could get enough hearties if not flaggies, without having to post a job offer of 9k/seg.

Thank Ye for the offer but Super Awesomeness will not be entering this event, the only reason we attacked in the first place was so that the island was in the hands of an active flag and although we were not successful in our attack our goal was still achieved by Elements of Fear, Riding High and yourselves (Universe A) owning the island and therefore we have no further interests in owning the island. But good luck to all entrants, should be fun, if I'm around I may watch from the sidelines

The event's time has been changed from 12pm PT, to 10am PT. Ransackery sucks at dropping events in the proper time zone. The event will be at 10am PT, on April 14th, 2013.

Edit1: To make the sarcasm obvious. (Cobaltians will get it! :D)

Don't forget to post your intent to join in this thread before the event begins, we'd really like to see some non-island holding flags get a chance at a new island!

*If we get less than 3 flags signed up by this Thursday, April 11cth, it will be open to all flags.

As previously posted, this event has not received enough entrants to continue, therefore, this event is open to all flags interested. If we still receive no more entrants, then the event will be cancelled :(. Come sign up, everyone is welcome!

Sorry will not be entering due to the double drop we're doing, don't want to take the chance of getting an island away from others seeming as we may gain 2

If we can get our act together on time, Atsumari Bouekifu will be participating. We don't really have any interest in the isle, just like the idea of bumper boats blockade :)

Bnavvers will be a mixture of Tinkrrbelle, Phaytesend, probably Lestatia and myself. We like to take turns!
