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

I am "almost" finished reading thru all the chat logs (its like a novel lol) from the event.... and something stuck out to me... a number of ppl were saying things like "its rigged" "the same people win every time" "when will i get a chance to win something" "there are no stations open now i cant win"

etc etc....

i work VERY HARD to try to ensure that there is a chance for ANYYONE to win....

the questions are various types and levels of difficulty... and that I rotate thru the stations... as well as the various skill levels in stations (bottom good in each station for example) so that hopefully ALL players can find something that they have a chance to win... and of course.. there are many times that it is JUST PLAIN LUCK (nobody can TRY to get 16th in forage... or 91st in treasure haul lol)...

of course since this is was the 6th year doing the event... some players have a SLIGHT advantage in knowing to watch chat for random shouts from peg... and to jump right in with ur answers... and are already familiar with the instructions on the verbose and crossword and anagram questions.... (altho i tried to do quite a bit of that at the inn leading up to the event so more ppl would be familiar with the idea)...

and of course .. the longer u stay ... the more opportunities to win pressies....

there were 191 different pirates that won pressies .... and there were about 400 stocking stuffers (small prizes just passed out for little or no reason) and about 500 stripey outfits passed out..... and of course... if u were there for battles. there was grandfrig PILLY POE (with 100% divided... + over 2 mil total ADDED into booty by other players)... and those that stayed ENTIRE 24hrs.. not only had the opportunity to win a nice familiar in the spinoff... but were guaranteed a ship no matter what!

so NOBODY should have left empty handed!!!


congrats to all the pirates that won one(or more) of the 400 pressies!!!! tho it may have seemed that only a couple ppl were winning.. here is a breakdown on the pirates that won pressies and the number each won.....
