The Grand Drinking Finals!
Date: Sunday March 27 (Qualifying tournament date/times TBA)
Registration Time: 8:30AM
Event Time: 9:00AM
Prize: An Octopus of your choice
Format: All Qualified Players (See Qualifiers) must register with Ajax before the event (see registration times) so that we can get a list of participants together. Latecomers will not be admitted. All participants will be jobbed into Ajax's crew and will board one of his ships for the duration of the finals. After being disqualified, participants are welcome to stick around to watch, but will be asked to keep quiet for those still competing!

Qualifiers: From the 11th through the 25th, we will be holding eight different qualifying drinking tournaments, placing in one of those is your ticket into the final familiar rounds! The top two winners from each qualifier will be guaranteed admission and the two runner ups will be alternates. Alternates will fill in for missing or redundant winners with priority given to those who qualified first (i.e. alternates from D1 have priority over those from D2, D2 over those from D3, etc.) If only one alternate can be chosen from a qualifyer, the two alternates will play a Bo3 standard set to determine who gets priority.

Finals Format: There will be three different parts to the finals with scores being wiped after each part. All drinking games will be the standard 1/4/4 settings.
  • ]Part 1: Three rounds of a Swiss style tournament with double elimination, one game per set. Eight players advance.
  • ]Part 2: This part will be a Round Robin with 1 game per set. Players will be ranked based on total games won/lost and any ties for 2nd place will be resolved at this time with a Bo3 set. Top two players advance.
  • ]Part 3: Bo3 match between the top two players, winner takes home a familiar![/list:u:f34d321a89]

    List of Qualifiers:

    +----------------+--------------+--------------+--------------+
    | First | Second | Alternate | Alternate |
    +----------------+--------------+--------------+--------------+
    |1:*Haruko |*Arualga | Blkdragon | Rochelle |
    |2:*Stevolopolis |*Kallista | Raiva | Bladen |
    |3:*Aaliyah |*Diesalot | Dorien | Slicer |
    |4:*Fronsac |*Paradise | Hatchetback | Evilgohan |
    |5:*Dorien |*Mitos | Ninjaguy | Blkdragon |

    |7:*Lamoran |*Hatchetback | Risen | Basher |
    |8:*Spyglass |*Croyalis | Piplicus | Rangery |
    +----------------+--------------+--------------+--------------+


    Please post results from Qualifying tournaments so this list can be updated!

    * - denotes a guaranteed slot in finals (assuming they're on time!)

Any info on the Literary Contest yet?

BTW, thanks for the Bo1 on the drinking tourney. I'm sure there'll be a ton of people showing up. Bo3 would be insanely long.

AND the Sailing Bakeoff is on the same day I fly home from Spring Break. Who do I have to bribe to get it scheduled as early as possible in the morning?

Ok, with multiple oceans now, we have a bit of a problem.

Will doubloon players have a chance to compete for familiars?

Will subscribers that have choosen to play on colbalt be competing? Will duplicate tourneys be run there? For SF or drinking, this might not be important -- for SF, just get an OM to magik up a duplicate of your other ocean sword. For duty puzzles, you can't just start up a cross ocean alt because of differing puzzling boards.

Will familiars be transfered to the other ocean?

For things like "Design a wallpaper" -- can I choose which ocean pirate will be receiving this? Maybe I want it on a doubloon ocean instead of a subscriber ocean -- maybe I'm not a subscriber.

Have I given you enough headaches yet?

Okay, I'm not official word or anything (haven't even spoken to anyone about it so don't even know really), but my guess is that there won't be much in the way of Events the first few months of an Ocean's opening, give them time to get on their feet and establish themselves first.

The oceans are completely separate so events run in one ocean will remain in that ocean, prizes and everything. Nothing will ever be transferred between oceans. We don't want you to do it and we won't be doing it ourselves.

For now assume any events listed will be done in the midnight ocean and with prizes given out only in the midnight ocean unless otherwise specified.
