new prize just added!!

a SUBSCRIPTION STARTER PACK

a 1 month subscription (via gift)
an LE FROST SLOOP
100k
to buy whatever else u may need
(for those not familiar with sub ocean... NO dub cost on anything... so 100k goes ALOT further!! (like a plain sloop would cost u 15k... instead of 75-80K....(15K+20 dubs(60k+)


so hopefully someone will really enjoy having a kickstart to try life on the sub ocean (and access to ice for that month also)

of course... EXISTING cerulean players could enjoy this gift also!!! extend their subscription.. a nice LE ship... and 100k to play with....

so be sure to tell ur friends that play on cerulean... to pop over to EMERALD for some fun :)

This sounds like fun. I'd love to join for a few hours if that's ok.

However, (*IF* in the event I win any presents, I'm still brushing rust and moss off me) I'd rather have presents on Emerald, instead of Cerulean. I don't need anything on Cerulean, give it to a a dub pirate who'd like to see what the sub ocean is about.

angel-

there is only one prize on cerulean... the 'sub starter pack' (1-month subscription... with frost sloop and 100k)......and it is a secret trigger prize..... so no worries on the pressies..... they are ALL Emerald prizes!!!! (well the BOX EDITION is account-based.... so ur cerulean pirate would get the backsword/hat also)


PLUS.... in the event that u win items u dont need.... u can give them to a pirate that does.... re-gifting is very xmasy :)

:D


Jieret is the elf that is will the handling the BNAV- DNAV- GUNNERS and general XO duties to keep the PILLY side of the event running smoothly :)


while I am at it... id like to introduce everyone to the other elves:

Pegasiswolf aka Santa ... will be keeping track of the points earned on duty reports...and announcing the trivia/games/challenges for the pressies... watching for secret triggers... and passing out the prizes (among other things)

Bisca (as AdminElf ).. will be contacting the winners to find out which pressie they choose.. and other very helpful behind the scenes admin stuff :)

Jimmiebuffet ... will be running around like crazy behind the scenes to find and gather all the pressies and get them to Santa (among other things)

Slee and Tee (as Freestripeys ).... will be busy getting all the pirates candycane outfits.. and helping with general XO duties

Cheryll has offered to fill in for Meaganz this year removing those that straightline in battle or otherwise disrupt the event

Theepicness (as Xmasinfo ).. will be on land spreading the word about the event so others dont miss out on the fun

Princessmg ... will be onboard to help out where needed also

and ALL of the elves will be helping to answer endless questions about the event...

and many of the elves will have STOCKING STUFFERS (small prizes not worthy of wrapping paper)... it will be up to each elf who they choose to give them to and by what criteria .... these are GIFTS (not entitlements)... they will not be given out on demand

You will recognise the elves by their SPECIAL SANTA HATS

(as a side note: plz allow only the elves to use /shout during the event so we can get info out where it is needed... thank you )

im SO excited!!! only 23hrs til it starts!!!!

yes.. UNOPENED.... Oldwater was sweet enough to find and buy one online specifically for use as a Xmas in July prize!!!! isnt he great!!

it will be a SECRET TRIGGER prize!!!

the winner will have the CHOICE.... either share contact information and have the box mailed directly to their home unopened... or... if they are not comfortable with that... NO WORRIES!!!... they can ask us to open the box... and get them the code to enter online....to claim the benefits

(however the box and disc are a great souvenir to have at home....of our favorite game of course)

Xmas In July 2016 Results!


WARNING: THE INITIAL RESULTS REPORTED AFTER THE EVENT WERE SLIGHTLY OFF !!!(silly sleepy peg forgot to REFRESH her scoring page)... so when i clicked the convenient REPORT button tonight.... the numbers were just a little different

Honest mistakes DO happen..... and thankfully we didnt have a discrepancy with the top overall (familiar) prizes..... or the top winners in each station type... yayy.....

HOWEVER..... there are just a couple discrepancies with the 3rd-4th in sails and rigs... so each will be given the higher of the offered prizes!!

Guanping - 120 Scrooge sloop
Mombeard - 69 red/green sloop

Hugoboss - 161 Yuletide sloop
Wreckoning - 104 Scrooge sloop
Ladysamantha - 42 red/green sloop
Doccos - 41 red/green sloop

Congratulations Peg and Co! I have no idea how you find the time or energy to run such a long event but you do so wonderful well, and with the patience of a saint.

I was only able to stay around for a couple of battles, but it looked like everyone had a great time, and who wouldn't with all the time and effort you put in.

Thankyou again :) see you next year!

Thanks a lot as usual for the super fun, Peg and the gang! I had a wonderful time being merry and giggling constantly on the voice chat... even at Tee's jokes which were fittingly cringeworthy!

I'm already counting down the days until next years. :)
