Slooping Extravaganza: Windward Vale Giveaway Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

As promised in the Fintan Intend Schroedinger's Cats are hosting a sloop-only event with Windward Vale as the first prize.

When: May-17 at 6am Pirate time (9am New York, 2pm London, 11pm Sidney)
Where: Windward Vale
What: Non-sinking, 1-round event
Ships: 3 sloops per flag max. (safe-zone does not count)
Pay: 500 poe/segment max.
Prizes: Windward Vale, LE Sloop, 20,000 poe

The format will be one of the following ideas that we shamelessly copy as we had much fun in them ourselves:

1. Frigate Pinada
2. Truth or Dare --- Round-1 only
3. Sink that Fanchuan (modification of 1.)

Ties will be resolved by a PvP whose format will be determined by an officer of Schroedinger's Cat. It might involve evil schemes such as winner is last-one-standing (of those who tied) with all Cat's officers shooting randomly at everything that moves.

There exist more than sufficient supplies of grog/rum/shot at reasonable prizes (<52 for rum and <16 for shot) by either local merchants (prefered) or the Palace.

Please register your flag here to be elegible for the prizes. [We pay for island transfer fees.]

I am entering the following two flags for this event after talking to their royals/titled in game:

1. V For Vendetta (Captholland)
2. Arcane Sanction (Cenobite)

Should this be incorrect, a royal of those flags can here dispute it by telling me that I talked to the wrong pirates.

Given the short lead time ... the format will be the Frigate Pinada. I think the "Truth or Dare" event takes a little more preparation as well as 4 frigs and officers at the wheel. We'll may do that at Fintan should we hold it for longer than a week ... which we have every intention of ;-)

Please spread the word ... the more the merrier ... and I feel that large, active flags do have an advantage here.

Please note that the frig (or fanchuan) will shoot, that all sloops can shoot at each other also, and that ye can have 3 sloops on the board max. The safe zone does NOT count towards the 3-sloop max. Ye can re-enter with new/fresh replacement sloops if one of yers gets sunk.

Clarification:

Winner can chose between Windward Vale or the LE sloop as prize, Runner-Up will get what winner does not want. The 20K poe cash prize I will distribute as I see fit to reward one entrant for participation ;-)

Come to think of it, it is not clear how one determines a second place, unless the sinking of the frig takes place with two faction landing shots concurrently ... so there is an element of ambiguity that, I hope, we will resolve cordially. And while I will try to be fair and reasonable, it must be understood that neither "fairness" nor "reasonableness" are absolutes that everyone will agree on. The situation is perhaps similar to pornography: very hard to define in absolute terms, but most people know it, when they see it.

I have some questions just to make things cear and I do not want to break any rules by accident during this event.

1. Can sloops shoot at eachother during the event, regardless of the tasks? Or they are restricted to accidental shots while ganging the war frigate etc. so not on purpose shooting at eachother.

2. If a sloop is sank can the naver re-enter with another sloop or on the same sloop, or the person is out for good.

3. What are the rules of "sink that fanchuan" as I was not able to locate these?

Thank you in advance! Looking forward to this very much :)

As a participant in a previous event (held by Brianjd on Emerald about two weeks ago) and one of the initiators of this idea in the flag, this is what I can tell you:

1. Sloops can shoot at everyone and everything.

2. You can enter again with a fresh sloop if you sink.

I don't know the answer to number 3, because that event is new for me too.

Icee is correct:

1. Sloops can shoot at everyone and everything.

2. You can enter again with a fresh sloop, if you sink.

3. Not relevant as we will not do this.

Please note that the frig will shoot also.
