Tournaments by Northern Star!

Hey all!

Some of you may have noticed from time to time that I will launch a large tourney with a Sloop deed as the main prize plus some goodies for runners up. Since those tend to be random, I decided to pre-plan a large tourney, this time it will be a longship "Grateful Pollack", as the main prize. A sloop will be offered in the secondary position. Plus whatever goodies I can come up with.

I will start the tourney Saturday March 19th, between the hours of 10 am - 12pm game time. The tourney will have a buy-in of 5 k.

So come one! Come all! And.. Good Luck :)

P.S. I haven't decided which type of tourney it will be... ;)

Will it be winner-take-all or cascading? 5K to join? Why not make it free to join? After all that's more of a giving-back-to-the-ocean vibe than making people pay 5k to enter. what will be the tourney settings?

Swrodfighting? Drinking? Rumble? TD?

2 of 3?

Seems like you skipped some stuff

I don't recall stating anything resembling "giving back to the ocean" etc...
If you don't like the terms don't join. Fairly simple.

Wasn't planning on it. I'm just saying the "event" is in 2 days and people who might be interested may wanna know more details before they decide if they wanna be on for this.

EDIT: You are correct. You never said anything about giving back to the ocean.
I still feel that making people pay 5k for a tourney in which there is a longship to be won is a bit much. Others might disagree but that's my opinion.

Re: Tournaments by Northern Star!

You are more than welcome to your own opinion Freak, however, the idea is to gamble a little for a bigger prize. I think 5k is quite a reasonable buy in for a chance at a longship.
As for the tourney itself I know what type of tourney it will be and the specifics of it. I was hoping that the nudge, nudge, wink, wink smiley would be self explanitory. Again it's all about the risk ;)

Re: Tournaments by Northern Star!

Get on at a possibly inconvienient time to find out the tournament you wanted to enter is your worst puzzle, then risk 5k for a Longship....

Seriously, there are tournaments with more valuable prizes just for the hell of it all the time. If you want a "big" tournament, you should up the anty.

Re: Tournaments by Northern Star!

Doesn't really seem like much of an event to me.

Re: Tournaments by Northern Star!

Congratulations to the winners of our tourney!
Quite a nice turn out and multiple complaints about missing the tourney! I promise to those who missed the posting that I will post with at least a weeks notice next time.

The tourney was:

Treasure Drop
Turbo with holes
Double elimination (because I like to give out prizes to 3rd and 4th :P)
Seeded by rating
10k pot prize + buy in cascading arithmetically


1st prize won not only the longship but 2 black box trinkets, a valuable (according to the black market pricing) HS trinket and a Atlantean band in a rare color

2nd prize won the sloop plus multiple uncommon trinkets

3rd Prize won a brand new black/blue dirk plus viking/IO trinkets

4th place won a pair of new purple lime coloured brass knuckles and a couple of trinkets.


I won't post the names of the winners as I don't have their permission to do so.
