1/12-13 The Great Race Frenzy - win a familiar! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Race Results

What: A race similar to the BK Fruit Frenzy held in June 2007. You are able to do the race at any time within a 48 hour period and enter the race as many times as you want!
When: The 12th and 13th of January
Deadline: Entries must be posted before the end of the day on the 13th

Prizes:
1st: Golden Monkey Familiar & 3 gold ship medals
2nd: Tan Monkey Familiar & 3 silver ship medals
3rd: Bronze Fish Artifact Furniture & 3 bronze ship medals
4th: Blue Nautilus shell & 3 plain bronze pins
5th: White Daisies & 3 white ribbons

Rules:
- You will order a bid ticket at each island on the route to mark your progress, the logs on your ship will record the time and place which will be verified later.
- Time starts when you order your first bid ticket and ends when you order your last.
- Times will only be calculated to the nearest minute. See below to see what happens in the event of a tie.
- You must engage one brigand or barbarian after each island you visit such that it appears in your ship logs. PVP does NOT count. So your route might look like: Island1 -> Brigand -> Island2 -> Brigand -> Island3.
- Routes can be run either forwards or backwards, so you can run it Island3 -> Brigand -> Island2 -> Brigand -> Island1
- You may enter as many times as you would like.
- PVP is allowed, even encouraged! Within reason, obviously - if you've engaged someone once, you've probably ruined their time already.
- Ship logs will be checked after the race is over to verify times. Only those who have posted the best times will be checked, so make sure you report your time accurately!
- Only one officer should be managing each ship. (i.e. only one officer, the entrant, should show up in the logs of their ship) If you lose your ship, we cannot verify logs and your entry will be disqualified.
- Swabbie Transport and Greeter Pillage modes are not allowed, if it's not clear that you have had commodities on board through the entire voyage your entry will be disqualified.
- If your rank is Officer, and you do not own the ship, bid tickets will appear in your pocket, and not be noted in the vessel records.

Ties
We will not be rerunning any races. In the event of a tie for first place or second, the actual prizes will be determined by the number of people who have tied.
- 2-3 people will all receive the 2nd place prize.
- 4-5 people will all receive the 3rd place prize.
- 6+ people will all receive the 4th place prize.
Any other ties for places other than first or second place will receive duplicate prizes.

Entries:
Entries must be posted on or before January 13th at 23:59 in the Entry thread. For more information on entering, please read my post there!

Routes:
Cobalt: Spectre --> Harmattan --> Terra (~ 36 Leagues)
Hunter: Gallows --> Quetzal --> Saiph (~ 35 Leagues)
Midnight: Waterberry --> Spring --> Namath (~ 35 Leagues)
Sage: Kasidim --> Greenwich --> Kashgar (~ 36 Leagues)
Viridian: Spectre --> Harmattan --> Terra (~ 36 Leagues)

Any changes to the routes will be made at least an hour before the event is set to start, so please double check before you start. No changes will be made to the routes after that time, even in the case of a blockade. You have 48 hours to complete your race and at least 24 hours notice of any blockades, so you should have plenty of time to plan and prepare!

Edit: Swabbie Transport and Greeter Modes are not permissible for this event.

Do we have Golden monkies?

Yes, I suppose they are really yellow but it sounds so much better when you call them gold!

A sample route if you were on Sage would be Kasidim --> (engage a brigand) --> Greenwich --> (engage a brigand) --> Kashgar

This is probably a dumb question but about this:

 
- You must grapple one brigand or barbarian after each island you visit such that it appears in your ship logs. PVP does NOT count. So your route might look like: Island1 -> Brigand -> Island2 -> Brigand -> Island3.


Do we have to grapple them? Or can we get grappled by them? I didn't realize that either of those things showed up in the vessel records so just wanting to make sure...even though I got owned in the November Race....

The only requirement is that they show up in your logs, whether you grapple them or they grapple you isn't important.

If it's like the previous races (which it says it is) then you can have as many people on the boat as you want, and each reported time will count as an entry. I know some people placed more than once in some of the previous races.

So can we just disengage, or do we actually have to do the sf/rumble?

You have to complete the swordfight or rumble, since that's what makes battles show up in the ship logs. You should make sure you've got items in the hold for the bots to steal if you lose, I believe the battles only show up if something was won or lost.

So, if you pirate was to set the fastest, and second fastest time on their Ocean, would they pick up both prizes?

I think in past races you would win the highest prize you were eligable for and then the remainder of your races would be tossed aside.

Artemis may change that for this time, but I kinda doubt it.

If we did not allow that, you could get around it with alts anyway - and I don't relish taking the time to double check everyone! So yes, you can win multiple prizes in one race.

Ah good reason. For those entering multiple runs, keep in mind the rules about prizes in the case of ties in Arte's original post...

No, they're not available from the Palace Shoppe - they are only given out for events. They're on the YPPedia trinket page, in the medals section.

Based on how quickly they complete the race including all the requirements. Obviously you will post the results on Artemis' results page once it is setup and then she will verify once the race times have ended.

Two questions: When we fight the brigand/barbarian, must you engage in a swordfight/rumble? (This would be to appear in the log, I guess)


Must I get a bid ticket at just Spectre, Harmattan, and Terra (Viridian), or every island along the way?

Yes, you need to grapple for the fight to show in the logs. It will show in the logs if you win or lose. If you win - it will show the amount of poe given to the pirates on the ship. If you lose it will show the items taken from yer ship.

 

Must I get a bid ticket at just Spectre, Harmattan, and Terra (Viridian), or every island along the way?

You only get bid tickets at the islands listed for each ocean.

So buy a bid ticket at the starting island, then sail and fight a battle before you get to the middle island stop. Buy a bid ticket to prove you stopped at the middle island, then sail and fight a second battle before you reach the final island. Buy the 3rd bid ticket at the final island.

Since you have to grapple would purposely losing (someone I know called it sucide) be legal?
