CI Sloop Race 4 - The Pirates' Retribution: 3rd May 2013 at 4pm GT Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

First there was Chaos and Carnage in the Cursed Isles followed by the Birthday CI Sloop Race.
Then came Revenge of the CI Sloop Race.
Now it's time for:


CI Sloop race 4 - The Pirates' Retribution





This race will take place on Friday 3rd May 2013 at 4pm gametime



Teams of 7 will be provided with a sloop stocked with rum and cannonballs, and a CI chart to the same area. Starting from port, the race takes you into the CI area and to the island where the idea is to get as many bone boxes as possible so that you are the first to port with a total of 300 or more bone boxes.

It is up to each team to decide how many times they re-enter, whether they thrall, and whether to port in between. Just to make things more interesting there is an element of jeopardy as you are allowed to shoot each other within the CI and PvP each other between the CI and port. In the event of all ships sinking, the last alive will be declared the winner, otherwise it is the first to port with 300 or more bone boxes.

Of course, if you make it to port with booty, you get to keep the booty divide as with any normal CI.

The winners will receive 20k PoE each, a CI trinket and a small momento of the competition,and all participants will receive a small momento of the competition.

How to take part:

You will need a bravery badge to take part.

You must be able to play until 7pm GT (although it will likely finish earlier this is to allow for the setting up and the distribution of prizes)

Please let me know that you wish to take part either by PM, or replying to this post, or by sending me a tell in-game.

Please include what your best station preferences are (eg Carp only, or sails/bilge) and if you wish to be considered as bnav (please put station preference too though).



I will assign people to teams to try to ensure an even balance in each sloop, using 2 for sails, 2 for carp and 2 for bilge, and with consideration of trophies gained. In the case of having too many pirates wanting one station (eg carp only), I will review your pirate stats to allocate to a different station. The bnav will have time to talk to the team about the plan of action, so can change to a 3,2,1 and decide thralling vs non-thralling, listening to what the stationers say about their abilities. The bnav should also consider nominating a deputy bnav in case of disconnection.

I will contact all the chosen bnavers to tell them they are bnaving and give them the opportunity to ask questions. It would be great if the bnavers can make themselves available from 3.30pm so that the sloop allocation can go more smoothly.


A maximum of 56 people can take part and in the case of oversubscription will take the first 56 registered. If there are absences on the day, then I will put out to jobbing and rearrange the teams accordingly.

I will start jobbing at 3.30pm, and will set up a reminder tourney for the hour before that (with the aim of having the tourney finish before the 4pm start). There will be tables on ship, and maybe other entertainment too whilst people arrive and I organise the sloops.

Each bnav will receive the deed of a stocked sloop once all the stationers are on the sloop. This keeps everyone party to crew chat but allows the bnav control of the vessel.
It can take 30 minutes to get people in the right place so please have patience and co-operate with what you are asked to do. Once the sloops are filled, the race will start - this will be as close to 4pm as possible.

All participants must wear an enlightened mask


I will act as the referee for the race, communicating with the bnavs and watching from within and without the CI. In the case of any dispute, my decision shall be final. Any sloops not sunk will be returned to me.

If you have any questions then please ask via the forum preferably, otherwise asking me via a tell ingame will be fine.

The past races have been much fun and highly amusing (except for one bnav who got miffed at being sunk!) - join in and see for yourself!

What if we have a full team of 7? Do we all have to register separately and hope to be on the same boat?

You do all need to apply as individuals (or a list in one forum post), but you are unlikely to end up on the same boat.

I have tried to run this event before with teams applying, but there are usually dropouts who need replacing and there can be an extremely good ci team against a not so good ci team which does alter the fun a team might have.

Putting together teams myself means I can adapt to dropouts, and try and balance the teams. So this then becomes about a pirate doing their best and trying to work as a team with pirates they might not have worked with before.

I hope this does not put you off - remember it can be fun to get a win over a crew member in a different team!

Can we know more details about this? Is it based off rank, xp, both? And token trophys, fren forage trophys?

I don't mean to be annoying, I'm just curious about some of the more fine tuned details of the event.

Good question - I make up a spreadsheet containing rank, token trophies and frenetic forage trophies. I'll then sort the players according to stations and try to create a first mix which matches a stonger carper with a weaker carper (for instance) and where I can will try to see if I can get at least 1 out of each station as a possible tokener. Obviously stats only tell you so much, so the bnav will have time to work out any changes. If the first mix is not working, I'll keep reworking until I think it is as fair as I can make it.

The other problem happens when there are dropouts and jobbing into spaces - there then may have to be a compromise made about getting the right type of jobber and actually doing the race.

That's as about as detailed as I can make it without knowing all the participants
