XMAS IN JULY 2016 - July 1st - 24HR Grandfrig Pillage - LOTS of prizes!! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



as always.....it will be 24 hr NONSTOP pillage on a GRANDFRIG ...

but we have BIGGER AND BETTER PRIZES this year!!!

there will be AT LEAST 15 FAMILIARS to win this year!!!!

date is set to start July 1, 2016.. at 10am game time ... and end July 2, 2016.. at 10am game time.. so it should not interfere with any blockades (jobbing offer goes up 9:30am)

the format will be generally the SAME as previous years...

Xmas in July 2011
Xmas in July 2012
Xmas in July 2013
Xmas in July 2014
Xmas in July 2015


we sail nonstop.. get into battles along the way... like a regular pillage.. with 4 main differences....

1) everyone that comes.. will be given a FREE red candycane outfit (red stripeys)

2) we will also have hundreds of SMALL items that will be passed out RANDOMLY as 'stocking stuffers' by the "elves' all day

3) every few minutes.. we will be doing fun things to win 1 of 400 wrapped presents ... that could be familiars--ships--pets--furniture--OM items--poe--dubs --or other great items ... (check back for the sneak peak later in this same thread)

4) we will be keeping track of duty reports and giving out points based on performance.... with prizes for the overall top 4 scores in EACH station type (so the longer u stay the more points u can rack up.. points do NOT have to be consecutive.. yes you may leave and then come back.. so hop on often)

Points will be given as follows:
2 pts. for each Incredible
1 pt. for each Excellent

***points for gunning station will be scored differently (and will NOT count towards the 'combined overall score') (more information on this later... as we work out the changes to the scoring tool)

SCORING WILL BE AUTOMATED... that means we will only need a momentary pause at each DR to tally..

a PRELIMINARY PRIZE LIST is as follows:

Top combined OVERALL score (regardless of station(s)) will Win a COLORED red /green parrot named Santa Claws!!!!!

Top MALE pirate will win a Green /Tan PARROT FAMILIAR!!
Top FEMALE pirate will win a Red /Tan PARROT FAMILIAR!!

(note: there will be THREE overall winners... so technically one of the winners will be the 2nd place overall for their gender)

the 3 top winners will have a PORTRAIT taken with Santa (peg) titled "Xmas in July 2016 Winners" taken....(a framed copy will be placed in our HALL OF FAME onboard the Event ship for posterity...and each will receive a copy for their portrait page)

The pirate that stays the LONGEST will win a BLACK OCTOPUS FAMILIAR named 'COAL'!!! you MUST be onboard when we set sail and can NOT leave the ship for ANY reason (if there is a TIE for longest, we will use an onboard gaming table to determine the winner, ie., each pirate spinning the roulette wheel once and highest number wins! smaller but significant prizes will be given to those that do not win the playoff)

1st place Sails -Yuletide Class Sloop
1st place Rigs -Yuletide Class Sloop
1st place Carp -Yuletide Class Sloop
1st place Patching -Yuletide Class Sloop
1st place Bilge -Yuletide Class Sloop
1st place Guns -Yuletide Class Sloop

2nd place Rigs -Scrooge Class Sloop
2nd place Carp -Scrooge Class Sloop

-'Frostbite' custom named Ice Blue sloop with corsairs helm/cannons, griffin figurehead

There will be 400 wrapped presents this year!!!

Present(s) will be won every few minutes.. (400 in 24hrs.. averages 16+ per hour)....for various reasons (could be top good on carp this league.... could be XMAS TRIVIA... could be top 1st/14th/37th and 87th in treasure haul lol.... could be the first person to show me a requested item... could be ANYTHING THAT POPS IN MY HEAD.... something for all skills levels).. the winner will win C H O I C E of ANY numbered pressie onboard.... so its totally FAIR... pick carefully :)

We will also have portrait easels onboard ... take a portrait to commemorate ur participation... (just ask if you would like 'Santa' or one of the 'Elves' to join your portrait)

There will even be 4 "Portrait with Santa" prizes wrapped up!!!

I will make a separate comment with a sneak peak at SOME of the wrapped prizes later!!!

MARK UR CALENDARS NOW .. so u dont miss out !!!

Points will be given as follows:
2 pts. for each Incredible
1 pt. for each Excellent

***points for gunning station will be scored differently (and will NOT count towards the 'combined overall score') (more information on this later... as we work out the changes to the scoring tool)

SCORING WILL BE AUTOMATED... that means we will only need a momentary pause at each DR to tally..


update as promised:

YAYYY we have an updated scoring tool!!

we will be tallying EVERYONES scores this year from EVERY Duty Report (engage/grapple/league point)

sails/rigs/carp/patch/bilge will receive pts from each exc/incred (same as always)

guns will receive 1 pt for each cb loaded!!

guns will NOT be receiving pts for exc/increds.... ONLY for #loaded...

note: this means that guns will NOT be counted in the OVERALL score regardless of station... so will NOT be eligible to win Santa Claws....

however... due to the limited number of gunners.... you will be facing MUCH less competition for the top 1st-4th place prizes for your station type...



if anyone has any questions about this... or anything else... just post it here... or send me a PM here on the forums .. or catch me ingame... or on facebook

im SOOOO EXCITED for july to hurry and arrive!!!!!

we do our own little version of bot-check periodically.....

it is not a perfect world... but we do what we can to make it fair for everyone... but if we notice u are afk in battle you will be planked and replaced with a bot for the fight.... and if u str8line in the fight... you will be planked

Meaganz takes more pleasure in this part than is actually required (due to the fact that the rest of the year... I have trained our officers to avoid planking)

Perhaps periodically send tells at league points to suspected botters? There are bots for sword fighting and probably re-stationing as well. Simply straight lining isn't enough sadly.

it has been arranged that ALL pirates that stay the ENTIRE TIME (never leave vessel) will not only be in a spinoff to win the BLACK OCTO fam ... but will be GUARANTEED to win a ship !!

thanks to all the wonderful pirates that helped me collect up 'extra' ships for this purpose!!!!

also.... EVERY pirate that stays ENTIRE TIME... will also be given ... a special INSCRIBED WINTER ORNAMENT trinket (the kind available only thru automated OM tournaments or other special events)... so good news for those that collect winter trinkets!!!

(I will need time to make the trinkets AFTER the event... so they will be passed out personally by me within a few days of the event or perhaps snuck directly into your inventory)

I hope to be able to come for at least some of this. I may not be around at the start (you know, keeping my job comes first, sadly), but I should be able to stick around for 12 hours or so.

And thanks to the OMs who donated eggs as prizes.. now I'm doubly excited. :)

Major-

Your main pirate is on cerulean isnt it?

I want to encourage pirates from other oceans to come!!

pirates from meridian can win items... then sell them and turn it into dubs to be used on meridian..... thats easy enough...

but ppl from cerulean? hmmm....

so... I WAS actually contemplating having a trinket that said "you have won XX amount of poe on cerulean" (or perhaps other nice prizes that non subscribers would have a harder time getting....)

this would work 2-fold... would help ppl that already HAVE pirates on cerulean... but also..... might encourage someone to make a pirate there and have a kind of 'starter package' to play....

so... if you have a donation ON cerulean.... I would love to meet up with u there.... to collect it (my name there is pegasiswolf also.. tho i rarely have played there since items do not transfer to emerald)

maybe u have an idea of an amount of poe or which items would be best to use as a prize from that ocean......

(note: the pirate 'RAID' of the crew 'Son of a Son Of a Sailor' = Jimmiebuffet on Emerald... my Xmas in July Elf!!)

(another suggested prize... could be a /gift of a month of subscription.... or perhaps the dub equivelent?)

if anyone else would be willing to do something similar.... plz send me a PM here on the forums or ingame.. ty ty

we have lots of wonderful SECRET TRIGGERS this year!!! (special familiars/ships)

TAN OCTOPUS FAMILIAR - named 'TREE TRIMMER '
GREEN KRAKLING FAMILIAR - named 'THE GRINCH '
GHOSTLING FAMILIAR -named 'GHOST OF XMAS PAST '

GOLDEN NUGGET - a custom-renamed Banana/Black painted sloop decked out with treasure chests and Banana decorations, Notorious Corsair's Helm and cannons and a dragon figurehead

HAUNTED TRILL - a renamed ROGUE sloop - decked out in haunted and vampire and other holiday deco


FROSTBITE - a custom renamed Ice Blue sloop with griffin figurehead with corsair's cannons and helm.. random ice blue and similarly colored items

and same as in previous years.. these secret triggers could be just about anything ... something u do/say.... something said/done to u..... something that just happens..... who knows..... well ONLY PEG knows... but she doesnt give hints....

so continue to have fun trying to stumble upon one of the above secret triggers....


BUT...

i ALSO have a little something different this year ...

originally I had planned to give out TINSEL... a pretty SPIDER FAMILIAR ... to the one that won the spin off for staying the longest..... however.... we got a BETTER prize for that.... a BLACK OCTOPUS FAMILIAR....

so.. what should i do with Tinsel now? hmmm... make her a secret trigger.....

but.. with a little twist.....

the spider is named Tinsel.. because in many countries spiders are used as decorations on xmas trees.. and there is even a "Legend of the Christmas Spider" which is an Eastern European folk tale which explains the origin of tinsel on Christmas trees. It is most prevalent in Ukraine, where small ornaments in the shape of a spider (pavuchky, literally "little spider") are traditionally a part of the Christmas tree decorations.

interesting bit of trivia huh? i thought so...

so...

TELL ME MORE TRIVIA. .. about ANYTHING Xmas-related!!!!

the person that stumbles upon the XMAS FACT/TRIVIA that i have picked ahead of time...

will WIN TINSEL!!

so brush up on ur xmas trivia.... and share it DURING the event .... and u may win urself a SPIDER FAMILIAR!!!

(reminder: triggers and such will ONLY COUNT ... AFTER EVENT BEGINS ..only AFTER we have set sail at 10am!!!... so dont waste ur efforts before we start lol)

and hopefully everyone will have fun learning random new facts :)

Its beginning to look alot like XMAS!!
