Reply with Quote

Event ended, You can still see the leaderboard tho :)
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16LZOyHFEdlW1GEosguJOlp95RrqR4iH-gzH40VwVSDQ/edit?usp=sharing

We will be having our next competition on the 23rd and 24th of April. It will be a kraken hunt much like events we've held in the past, but this time all entries will be hosted by flag volunteers. To enter, simply check the notice board on those days when one of our hosts is available.

Prizes:
Overall prizes will be awarded to the highest scores out of all the entries.
1st. KH ready Lovestruck Class Sloop won by Nightkiller
2nd. KH ready plain Sloop won by Privatesam
3rd. 200 lifeboats from Armstrong Island won by Jarviss

A prize will also be awarded to the best score of every entry. In the event of a tie, both players win a prize from one of the following chosen at random.
Bravery badge
Large whisking potion
Labor badge


In addition to the prizes listed above, a raffle will be held for all flag members who participated! All you have to do to enter is join at least 1 entry.

Rules:
Players will enter on a flag hosted ship, every pirate for themselves.
You earn 6 points per egg, 4 per pod, 2 per locker, 1 per cuttle and ink.
You can enter up to five entries, but only your best entry will count towards the grand prize drawing.
In the event of a tie, your next best entry will be used as a tie breaker.
A map will be dissed if the bomber either does not sink the head in 7 minutes or dies three times.
A map with a side egg, no tunnel, AND a non speedable pod will also be dissed.

Offering a vote to keep a trip as one of the 5 allowed after the bomber has died 3 times (the last time in the last 5 minutes of the entry) when the leader is your flagmate (and one of your top hearties), but not offering that same vote when the bomber has gone down 3 times (the last with 7 mins to go) but the flaggie has not done so well, is not the way to run a competition. Either keep to the rules or do not run competitions. I was really looking forward to this but i do not think I will be participating in any more comps your flag has if they are not going to be run fairly.

Toni, I'm sorry you feel that way. The entry that was counted was a generally high scoring entry with 17 eggs I believe while the one that was not was low scoring all around. In any case, each pirate name gets up to 5 entries with only their BEST score being counted towards the grand prize.

The 3 death rule is basically to say if the bomber is not fairing well we get rid of the map before we waste any more time on it. If we dis the map regardless of time left or overall scores there is the opposite problem of not counting a good entry. I hope you can understand that giving the hosts some level of judgement on the dis is favorable.

In regards to the flaggy prize, the small prizes are worth about 20k. I highly doubt such a small amount is going to sway the hosts judgement. I could make many more examples of when a dis hurt a flaggy prize just the same.

All I am asking is that we stick to the stated rules. Its either none or all when the "Bomber dies 3 times" rule is stated. If they die 3 times, the board is dissed. Period. Or just take the rule out of the equation. Thanks and good luck with your competition.

I was the one running those entries. I apologize if u felt I was unfair. When we make rules for competition we just cant foresee every possible issue and write a rule about it. I did not make my decision on my own but discussed it with people who were involved in making competition.

I am sorry if u felt cheated for it, and really hope u change your mind and u join us sometimes, but I cant promise that all will be perfect. We try our best, but as anyone, we do make mistakes.

Our main idea is fun for all with a chance to win prizes... and since in KH we cant guarantee same conditions for all participants at least we try to even it out... So on first map I had a feeling that bombers deaths had much less impact on eggers than on second one, and that was my main reasoning for dissing second map.

Once again I am sorry.
