World Cup Sweepstake + Other Related Events! [All tickets now sold] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

This summer, all eyes will be in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. We are going to bring some of this fun to the Cerulean Ocean so you can win some great prizes.

We will be hosting a sweepstake to get things moving. Do not fear if you do not know what a sweepstake is, see below for an explanation on how it works.

We are selling 32 tickets at 10k each (1 ticket for each team at the World Cup). When all the tickets are sold (Maximum of 5 tickets per pirate) there will be a draw using a random generator to give a nation to each pirate with a ticket. The prizes will then be dished out to the pirate who has a winning team from the following categories:

Winners of the World Cup
Tan Monkey
100k
A sloop renamed and painted to be themed after the winning nation
Trinket

Runner up
50k
A sloop renamed and painted to be themed after the runner up.
Trinket

Third place
25k
A sloop renamed and painted to be themed after the third placed team
Trinket
Winner: Netherlands

Team who scores the most goals
Banana Cutter
Winner: Germany

Team who conceded the most goals
Spring green Sarcophagus
Winner: Brazil

Team who scores the least goals
Banana Elephant
Winner: Three teams were tied but Iran were the last to score so win the prize.

Team who conceded the least goals
Ancient Pottery
Winner: Costa Rica

First red card of the tournament
LE Duroc Pig

Winner: Uruguay
-----

There are also more chances to win as follow:

With it being World Cup 2014, there is a chance to win again if your team scores in a minute or second the number 14 is used. You will win 5k for every goal throughout the tournament (I'll be using BBC sport to take exact goal scoring times).

For example:
If your team scores a goal at 14:58 game time you will win 5k. If your team scores at 14:14 you will win 10k. If your team scores at 15:01 you win nothing.

Brazil 5k V Chile

-----

In addition to all this there will be a free raffle to guess how many goals will be scored at this years World Cup. If you guess correct you will win 250poe per goal scored.

For example:
You guess 150 goals and that is correct, you will win 250 poe x 150 which equals to 37,500poe! Once a number has been used, nobody else can use it.

-----

If you would like to be part of this event, please catch myself (Yorkyblue) or Fleurs in game to buy a ticket(s). When paying for your ticket please say how many goals you think will be scored at the World Cup.

Entries and how many goals they have guessed will be put into the next post down.

Regards
Yorkyblue

I was sad enough to look back at all the results for my 5 teams and none of them scored at 14 mins :( (btw how are you going to clarify the seconds time BBC sport website doesn't state seconds just minutes, you would have had to have watched every match lol)

I was also sad enough to look back at the results for all games while I was on BBC website and I noted the goals scored (not including penalty shoot out penalties scored as their not actual goals) and counted them up and made it 162. I guessed 161, are you sure that's not a typo and it should've been 162? :P

He would watch all of the games if he could, trust me.

The goals scored are 171, so no one actually won that prize :(

Hi mate.
On the BBC website there is live text commentary at the bottom of the match report. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/28181689

I used those to get the numbers. I even included penalty shootouts to try get a number 14 as it only showed up once (for Brazil).

I got most of my info for other prizes from here in case anyone would like to look :)
