  • You may enter the board as many times as you want within the time frame
  • Sail back, divide the booty and place ending bid

  • The same team may attempt multiple entries with different ships but only one will count, make sure to submit best run for the event!

How to Participate

  • I do have an issue with this. There isn't a large pool of jobbers onthe Midnight ocean, as well as Cobalt and Mala. Is there no way to allow only one entry per pirate, but that another pirate can join multiple trips?

    Edit: This just means Harrjm can run a trip, and Jacid will job with another, and Evasion with another....etc. Same for Tzz, Tzl, Tzm, Tzb. Blah!!

    Aye but it also means that the competition won't be dominated by elite teams and their alts? Gives a more even spread to the particpation.

    No, it just means I have to take 30 seconds and log into another account to use a different pirate. Blah as I said.

    This rule is very fair!

    If you allowed pirates to join multiple trips the same 7 pirate could win all the prizes.

    For example.

    Winners
    Navver- Pirate A

    Jobbers Pirate B , C , D , E, F & G

    Runner Up
    Navver - Pirate B

    Jobbers - Pirates A , C , D, E , F & G

    These are the same pirates but with a different Pirate 'leading' the CI run.

    Correct me if I am wrong (Clotho); but the above is actually possible if you just use alts.

    Do you mean that if a pirate enters the event with another team, his participation will not count on the second run, or that the whole team's participation will not count?

    Tbh, the prizes are kinda lame, maybe throw in a couple of the new features of CI as prizes? Such as furni, the new crown or maybe a gator or two..

    Edit:

    A CI sloop maybe?

    Basically, just use an alt for two of the three trips, and win all 3 of the terrible prizes.

    My question is do we have to do this in the actual span of 120 minutes, or can we do one trip that is 60 minutes one day, then another that is 60 minutes the next day, and have that equal the 120?

    It is stated that we "must place a bid" As, allot of CI maps, especially the good ones are off of uninhabited islands, could we say, destroy 1 unit of stock when we leave and one unit when we get back? That leaves an equivalent note on the vessel record.


    Looks like a really fun event, I already got part of a team >.>.

    A prize upgrade would be really great.

    Arrrrr, CI event.

    Am I the only one who participates if there aren't any prizes at all?

    Those prizes are no fams, gators or uber-rare furniture, but the event itself is nice, so i will participate.

    Do we have to find our own CI charts, or will the OMs "magic" one up for us prior to start time?

    I have an issue with Rule 3. I want to Judge as well.

    Sorry, Apollo took all the judging spots!
     
    I do have an issue with this. There isn't a large pool of jobbers onthe Midnight ocean, as well as Cobalt and Mala. Is there no way to allow only one entry per pirate, but that another pirate can join multiple trips?

    There is enough time from now until the date of the race to find a suitable team, I am pretty sure you will all be able to find 6 more pirates to attempt a run. Due to the nature of the race, we doubt that anyone will be jobbing off the notice board for this event. And the rule stands, only once per pirate!
     
    Correct me if I am wrong (Clotho); but the above is actually possible if you just use alts.

    To make the rule clear: only one pirate per account is allowed to participate. If you wish to participate again on an alt it must not be a pirate on that same account.
     
    Aye but it also means that the competition won't be dominated by elite teams and their alts? Gives a more even spread to the particpation.

    That's the idea.
     
    My question is do we have to do this in the actual span of 120 minutes, or can we do one trip that is 60 minutes one day, then another that is 60 minutes the next day, and have that equal the 120?

    The one run must be a maximum of 120 minutes counting from starting bid to final bid and it must be between the 21st and the 24th of July. Runs outside those dates or above the time limit do not count!
     
    It is stated that we "must place a bid" As, allot of CI maps, especially the good ones are off of uninhabited islands, could we say, destroy 1 unit of stock when we leave and one unit when we get back? That leaves an equivalent note on the vessel record.

    No, sorry. There must be a starting bid and a final bid, please take this into account!
     
    Arrrrr, CI event and I'm on vacation. Am I the only one who would participate if there wouldn't be any prizes at all?
    Those prizes are no fams, gators or uber-rare furniture, but the event itself is fun.

    Exactly! The idea is to have a fun event for everyone, and the booty in the chests is added bonus. Besides, there will be more prizes added soon!
     
    Puhleaaaaaaase post links back to this post on entry threads!

    Done!
     
    Do we have to find our own CI charts, or will the OMs "magic" one up for us prior to start time?

    There is plenty of time to find your Cursed Isles charts, prepare to loot!

    You'll have the normal odds of winning these items on your CI trips themselves. In order to preserve the "specialness" of prizes limited to specific types of events in game, these are not used as OM prizes for OM events.

    With that said, we are still determining a fair set of other prizes to sweeten the pot, currently marked "TBA" (to be announced). I'd keep reasonable expectations here, however.

    I'm going to post this as a dumb question..

    But some people play multiple oceans. Say I was to place in the Viridian, but also say Sage under the same account and pirate name is this allowed?

    No they will not. You have to make a starting bid and a final bid. Find a CI next to an inhabited island!
     
    But some people play multiple oceans. Say I was to place in the Viridian, but also say Sage under the same account and pirate name is this allowed?
    I think you can only use one pirate per account, no matter what ocean-s- you use.

    Can I buy a ticket to the jelly wrestling?

    Sorry, those are not available, Apollo snatched them all!
     
    But some people play multiple oceans. Say I was to place in the Viridian, but also say Sage under the same account and pirate name is this allowed?

    Each account may participate with one pirate per ocean.

    Regarding the bids, Lolwat got it correct, thanks!

    This event sounds like so much fun, especially when it feeds my Ci addiction! I will cross my fingers and wiggly toes that I will have stable internet connection during that week!

    Although, this might have already been asked or mentioned and I may have been a doofus and missed it but...!

    You mentioned that the same team may attempt the run on different ships, does it have to be the exact same team, person per person? or could there be minor changes, such as 1-2 different people than the previous team on that different ship.

    Thanks!

    Any pirate can enter once. You can attempt as many runs as you want, but once you submit one, you're done.

    Im sorry - but i feel as if there should be an easier way to mark when we start out other then a bid ticket. Seems a bit impossible unless you have a map around an inhabited island. Anyway you can rethink this? make it a tiny bit easier for the people on smaller oceans - who love their Cursed Isles?

    I am sorry, but in this case we do need to be consistent, there is plenty of time to find a suitable map. On the other hand, every team will have the same restriction, even in our newest and smallest ocean: Jade!

    No offense intended Clotho, but you've said this before, and it took me a day or two to mull it over. You say there is plenty of time to find a suitable map... but the maps dust after 8 days. So really, there isn't plenty of time. There is only 12 days - including the 4 days of the event. That window is even shorter for people wanting to take multiple stabs at it, as any map spawned on the 13th will dust on the first day of the comp (spawned on 14th will dust on second day, usw.) I play primarily on Cobalt. Considering that pillaging is dead there, the odds of winning a CI map on a pillage are pretty small. The odds of winning one between the 17th and 21st (the range required to have the chart available for the entire comp period) are even smaller. Add to that the odds that it will be off an inhabited island, and you may as well figure there will be no more than 1 or 2 competitors on that ocean with a real shot. It would seem that the real competition here is in acquiring the proper chart - at least as an unintended consequence.
