Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

Cause we said so!

But really, the creators of the event are anticipating an upcoming blockade on Turtle, and it's possible for an opposing flag to pay the minimum bid of 3k for all the pirates being auctioned, and use them for their side of the blockade. Creative way to pull a bunch of us, who are supporting Turtle, away from our side, and onto theirs, and have no say about it.

Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

Sorry, but I'm going to have to pull out.

1) I'm busy over the next three weeks
2) I have lots of in-game chores to do, never mind others
3) I need all the time I can get to make myself some money (read: low on coffers)

(If you really want to buy me, I think I'm being auctioned off in a month or so)

What Pip tried to do was something totally unprecedent. He, in some strange way, used Midnight as a test server, without him even knowing. [Crap, it sucks I was not online when he did that :'(... pfft, anyways]

Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

I'm not a rock star, but some of you may think it's worth bidding on me just to have a guaranteed three hours to like, prohibit me from posting on the forums, LMAO.

I honestly don't expect anybody to bid, since I'm not so notable at anything, really...but since it was brought up, there is ONE slightly useful thing I have, which is...I too, have the entire ocean as it stands today memmed on Midnight. (No dead routes or training routes, just what exists today).

I'd also like to point out that in past auctions, they've had a disclaimer that you can't make the folks being auctioned spend any money or buy you stuff during the time you own them. So, If I was to bid on Xiaohu and win, I can't make her pay for a portrait of the two of us together for me to have. I can make her take the portrait, but I'd have to pay for it msyelf.

About the only other thing I'm useful for is to make me do your officer training for you, and the way I train...3 hours is like, 3 people trained, LMAO

I wouldn't call most of the participants rockstars, or even gamely names for that matter.

But what do I know, I'm just an old crab.

You and your damn popularity contests...

Still though, I'd be more willing to buy popular names. A guaranteed way to take money from my purse is to put Ajani up for sale.

Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

For those stat bashers, just like to point out that one of the people on the list, is currently top of the ocean rankings in two seperate puzzles.

I hope the event raises lots of poe though, for the upcoming blockade.

p.s. I do not want to even hear them sing. /me trembles at the thought

Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

I was being sarcastic. One just needs to log on and /who to see everyone's stats. At the time of auction, I was top in the ocean and my arch for sb rating. Damn server timing out on me as I was attacked tonight made me lose that.

However, we are well known in our own circle, and those of us auctioned are good at duties, as well as good pirates all around. The very well known would be a little difficult to get a hold of. As it was, the auction did pretty well for us. Too bad the ebil OMs wouldn't allow us a broadcast for the event. =]~ We still love them, I suppose.

Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

The auction is on Midnight, but are we able to use the time "won" on, say, Cobalt? :)

EDIT: Then again, I missed the actual auction. So blah! :P

Re: [over] AUCTION! Win yer favorite Midnight Rockstar!

There were a few more folks I had meant to bid on, unfortunately it was a very busy evening for me and I was afk the majority of the auction.

So, it seems you all raised a fair ammount towards the defense of Turtle Island. Now all that remains is some dastardly pirate to come force you to defend.

Now taking wagers on who that will be, and when.
