[All Oceans] April Familiar Tournaments and Auctions

Tuesday is my long shift. I work from Midnight until 8am, piratey time.

In order to remove any potential for boredom, on Tuesday, April 25, I shall run 16 familiar tournaments during my shift. Every half an hour I shall start a tournament somewhere. By the end of the shift, every ocean (Midnight, Cobalt, Viridian, Sage) shall have had one tournament of each type (Swordfighting, Drinking, Treasure Drop, Rumble).

  • I do not have a specific schedule. You shall just have to wait and see.
  • The tournament details will be decided at the time I begin them, except all tournaments shall have a 30 minute lead time.
  • The familiars awarded shall be in gifts.


    April Auctions

    The familiar auctions for April shall be forum-based auctions with pieces of eight.

    Rules:
  • Each Ocean Bazaar shall have a thread started for that ocean's auction. All bids must be made to that thread.
  • Bids may be of any amount. The earliest bid for an amount shall take precedence.
  • If your bid is beaten, make a new post with your next bid.
  • A bid must stand for at least 48 hours before it is declared the winner.
  • The auction shall last a minimum of 1 week from the time it is posted. Any bids submitted before the 5 day mark shall have a longer period they must remain the high bid.
  • There is no set end time for the auction. If bids continue to come in within each 48 hour window, the auction may extend indefinitely.

    Winners:
  • When a player has been declared the winner of the auction, he or she must place the entirity of the bid on an alt character and send me (Bia) a PM with the name of the character. Also the PM should include the choice of familiar (any type, any colours, no solid black or white).
  • This alternate character shall be checked to see if it has the complete bid. If so, the money shall be taken and the familiar left on the alt.

    Auction threads:
    Cobalt auction
    Midnight auction
    Sage auction
    Viridian auction

    I think Bia's just going to decide on her personal whims- I'd venture to guess that you won't see any repeat formats for drinking, swordfighting, or rumbling.

    Denying the inevitable for as long as possible is a waste of life's work.

    Still. It seems much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much more logical for familiar tourneys to at least be on weekends... And on different days and weeks, so at least we can make one of them.

    I think it's safe to say not to expect any... for a while. The point was to get people to start buying ships, but the people who'd win are those with built fleets already, not those who rallied to get ships. Heh.

    Heck, I wonder when the auctions will stop, if ever.

    I like the ship auctions also. Remove some of the deadwood out of the system at least.

    Hey, it's the only form of ship decay we have right now.
