Pillage Madness! [June 19 through July 2nd] - Prizes delivered! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

As the sunny, hot, windy days come nearer, pirates long for the salty breeze to keep them cool in the summer heat. What best way to work this breeze than by chasing Brigands?

From June 19th through July 2nd every registered crew should try to win as many battles against Brigands or Barbarians as possible!

How to Participate:

* Register your crew before Thursday, June 18th at 11:59 PM pirate time.
* To register post your pirate name, crew name and a designated event contact for your crew in the entry thread for your ocean.
* Listing an event contact is optional. The event contact of your crew needs to be a member of the crew and be noted in the crew statement in the following way: "Event Contact "Pillage Madness": (pirate name)".
* Any officer or above at the time of registration may register their crew.
* Set sail and join the pillage madness!

Pillaging Rules:

* All battles fought (and won) from the beginning of June 19th until midnight July 2nd will count for this event.
* We will be checking the number of battles every day by looking at crew battle records on the rank page.
* A "day" is defined as the 24 hours between midnight and midnight game time with regards to battle records. (Use /info in game.)
* Battle records update at about 2am every day.
* Any officer who runs a pillage during that week will contribute to the crew's overall battle count.
* PvP battles do not count for this event.

Prizes:

* 1st place
Inferno class war brig, Smuggler class war brig, Verdant class baghlah, Calamity class cutter, Verdant class cutter, Smuggler class sloop, Alice class sloop and 4 sloops
500 rum, 500 small cannon balls and 500 medium cannon balls

* 2nd place
Smuggler class war brig, Verdant class baghlah, Harvest class cutter, Chocolate class sloop, Dream class sloop and 3 regular sloops
250 rum, 400 small cannon balls and 400 medium cannon balls

* 3rd place
Verdant class cutter, Casino class sloop, Gunpowder class sloop and 2 sloops
150 rum and 300 small cannon balls

* 4th place
Hunter class sloop and 2 sloops
100 rum and 200 small cannon balls

* 5th place
2 Sloops
50 rum and 150 small cannon balls

* 6th to 8th place
1 Sloop
30 rum and 130 small cannon balls

Prize delivery and crew contact:

* Any prizes the registered crew may have won will be delivered to the designated event contact. The event contact needs to be a member of the crew and be noted in the crew statement.
* If no event contact is given, prizes will go to the officer who registered the crew. If more than one officer signed the crew up for the event and no event contact is given, prizes will go to the captain of the crew.
* Crews are allowed to change their event contact until the end of the event time frame. Event contacts will be added to each ocean's "Battle Records" once the event starts.
* Please do post in your ocean's event thread and update the crew statement if such a change occurs. The updated contact needs to be noted in the crew statement, just posting won't count. Goes without saying that the new event contact must be an active member of the crew. Please note that we will probably not be updating those changes until after the event is over and the contacts have been double checked.

General stuff:

* It does not have to be your vessel or your pillage, so long as it's a vessel in your crew that is winning the battles.
* Vessel size doesn't matter and there are no bonus points for pillages on larger vessels.
* There will be no penalty for battles lost, only the battles won count for this event.
* If you borrow someone else's ship, please make sure to restock!
* If you prefer that your ships are not borrowed, make sure to keep them locked.
* Make sure you port and divide booty every now and then! There won't be any problems regarding this event or battle records, but if your pillage turns into a marathon with lots and lots of battles, the booty division might not credit everyone appropriately.

Battle Records

There will be a separate thread posted for each ocean in the corresponding event forum. In the second post of each thread you will find a list of the top scoring crews on that ocean, which will be updated on a daily basis (some time after 2am game time). Links will be posted here when the time comes.

* CERULEAN Battle Records

* EMERALD Battle Records

* MERIDIAN Battle Records

Entry threads:

* CERULEAN Ocean Registration

* EMERALD Ocean Registration

* MERIDIAN Ocean Registration

Nice, I remember participating a few years back.

Any Idea if there will be the same Event on Opal? Since it's the only ocean which seems to be left out.

Could you clarify? 11:59:59 PM on July 1 or 11:59:59 PM on July 2 (minus a second)?

[edit] Thanks, Clotho!

Quick question. Do battles lost count against you?

After these intense pillage madness days we are now at the end of this event. Thank you all who participated, your efforts have been noted! I hope that every crew participating had the satisfaction of helping train new players, new officers, that you made new friends and that the growth and unity in your crews helps you reach bigger and better crew goals, and let's not forget the PoE earned while pillaging!

This has been an ambitious event that still has many details to add or correct if we ever decide to do it again. I hope that this attempt at promoting Stephensam's "Just Pillage" event has been a source of fun for all of you and has reminded us all that we are after all, PIRATES!

The final battle records lists are up on every ocean and the contact lists have been updated. If there's a typo or a mistake somewhere make sure to post in the appropriate ocean thread before noon on Monday, July 6th. After that date I will consider the current tally final and prizes will be delivered.

Thank you for doing this event again.

If you are looking for variation perhaps you could get the programmers to make a record somewhere of individual pirate's wins? That would enable everyone to compete equally. This could be an alternative event or combined into this one.

I received a PM asking when prizes will be delivered. Here's the answer:

First of all congratulations!

As per my post: If there's a typo or a mistake somewhere make sure to post in the appropriate ocean thread before noon on Monday, July 6th. After that date I will consider the current tally final and prizes will be delivered.

This means that crews have a few days to double check records and correct mistakes. Prize delivery will start on Tuesday, July 7th - it's very likely that I will not finish deliveries exactly on that date so please be patient. I will post in each ocean's thread once deliveries are complete for that particular ocean. Thank you for your patience and thank you all for participating!

Prizes delivered!

* CERULEAN

* EMERALD

* MERIDIAN

Please note that most of the event contacts were offline, so the deeds need to be traded to an alt and back for the ships to show correctly on the docks.

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you all who participated. Hope you had fun!
