Nyan Cat Crafting Cavalcade! -- Six puzzles, Six familiars {Finished!} Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote


Artwork by the lovely Misscee

The Preface:
Who doesn't love Nyan Cat? Well, Nyan cat's wonder has inspired me to run a old-style crafting bakeoff for each color of Nyan cat's wonderful rainbow tail!

This event will deliver prizes to any of the production oceans, but will be run from the wonderful Cerulean Ocean!

The Schedule:
Sunday, February 12th: Blacksmithing for a tan/red parrot
Monday, February 13th: Weaving for an tan/orange parrot
Tuesday, February 14th: Foraging for a tan/yellow parrot
Wednesday, February 15th: Alchemistry for a tan/lime parrot
Thursday, February 16th: Nothing!
Friday, February 17th: Distilling for a tan/blue parrot
Saturday, February 18th: Shipwrighting for a tan/purple parrot

Monday, February 20th: Weaving for an tan/orange parrot

crappy copy-paste work by Stevensam

The Rules:
(rules and guidelines are modeled after the events run by Bia in 2005-2006)
Joining
* You must log on a character who is ranked Novice/Able at all puzzles, as well as having no trophies for puzzles (this includes token trophies, incredible plaques, ultimate trophies, etc.)
* Jobbing for the event starts at 12:45 PM game time.
* In order to be jobbed, send a tell to Poebarker with the name of your main pirate.
* Make sure that your Do Not Disturb is off and please be patient.
* You will then be jobbed aboard the Lime Emperor.
* All pirates who are jobbed aboard are required to stay on board, or you will be disqualified from the event and removed from the jobbing crew.
* You must also remain jobbed into the crew throughout the duration of the event.

Stat checking:
* Fifteen minutes before the event starts (1:45 PM game time), jobbing will stop. During this time, the stats of every pirate on board will be checked.
* It is suggested that everyone participates in this checking process.
* Any player found to have any stats above Novice/Able and/or any trophies indicating playing of any puzzles will be disqualified.

Competition begins!:
* At 2:00 PM game time, Poebarker will announce "Go". Until that point, no pirate is allowed to leave the ship.
* Should anyone say "Go" or otherwise indicate that it is time to begin, that person will be disqualified.
* Once Poebarker announced the start of the event, find your way to a stall (or ship for Foraging) and begin puzzling.**
* Each competition will last for 90 minutes and end at 3:30 PM game time.
* For each increase in your ocean-wide rank send a tell to Poebarker stating the rank you have achieved. I will check this, note the time, and send a confirmation response.
* Each tell will be logged, so even if there is a slight delay in my response, your tell will be received.
* No tells are needed when you increase the Archipelago-wide rank or experience rank.
* Throughout the event, Poebarker will announce the remaining time periodically.
* Once the time is up, Poebarker will call the end of the event. Any tells sent in after this point will not count.
* Pirates are then asked to re-board the Lime Emperor.
* Players will be ranked according to who reached the highest rank the fastest.

**(For foraging, pirates may stay aboard the Lime Emperor, or move to a different ship of their choice).

Prize distribution:
Once a bake-off has concluded and pirates come back aboard the ship, I will announce the winners. I will need the winners to tell me the ocean and pirate they wish to receive their prize(s) on. The Ocean Masters will then magic the prizes to the winners' inventories.

The Prizes:
Each of the six bake-offs have the following prizes:
1st place: Tan/{color} Parrot and a Fancy Ribbon Trinket.
2nd place: Sleeping Pet Furniture and a Fancy Ribbon Trinket.
3rd place: Rare Artifact Furniture and a Fancy Ribbon Trinket.
4th-5th place: Grey/Grey cat and a Ribbon Trinket
6th-10th place: Ribbon Trinket
(note that the sleeping pet furniture and rare artifact furniture will be of random types.)

The Extra Stuff:
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to send me a PM or post it here!

Reserved for Q&A

Q: What happens in the case of a tie?
A: When a pirate sends in their tell announcing their stat increase, that time is noted. Whichever pirate reaches the highest rank first wins, there shouldn't be the possibility of a tie.

Q: What if there are more than 159 pirates entering?
A: I do have a backup ship to accommodate more pirates if need be.

Q: Can I use any cheats or exploits?
A: If I suspect a pirate is using a cheat/exploit, I will disqualify them. Play fair and make this fun for everyone.

Q: Do I have to use 6 different pirates for the 6 bake-offs (assuming I play more than one?)
A: I'll require a completely fresh alt for your first bake-off, but you can use the same one after that, provided you do no puzzling outside of each bake-off.

Q: What if I drop in rank?
A: As long as you get your increased ranks recorded, there's no penalty for dropping rank, other than having to work even harder to get the next rank.

Q: After I send a tell for rank increase, can I keep puzzling or should I wait?
A: You can go ahead and keep puzzling.

This is such an awesome idea! Can't wait. <3

I have a question though (I'm a bit dumb about ranking), what if there's a bit of a tie? Or do you expect that one will most clearly prevail over them all?

Each player's timestamp on the tell I receive announcing their rank up is how I determine when a pirate increased in rank.

Just to clarify, if there are three way ties in rank, etc, the tell that's first with the highest rank wins?

By the way, love the theme Sam. xD

Oh it will be fun, dont get me wrong. Im just saying that having to get people to wait, Correctly /tell during the event and then getting back to the correct place on time should be interesting.

I applaud Stevensam for taking this event on, and look forward to it. In all of its rainbowy tail glory.

Personally, I don't see any problems with sending correct tells. Before the competition, you can create some messages on the F-keys. This will only require you to push one button and you can continue immediately. About the waiting part: I think that's unavoidable if you need to check maybe over a 100 pirate lists. Then again, you have to wait a bit for most events and I think 15 minutes is a relatively low amount of time.

I have one question myself: I assume there will be another ship available, in case the Lime Emperor hits an amount of 159 pirates?

Aye, in the unlikely event that there are more than 159 pirates entering I have a backup ship as well.

If I decide to do all six bakeoffs, will I have to have six different pirates, since all will have to be all Novice/Able?

Edit to add: I assume that hyperranking will be disallowed?

If you choose to do all six bakeoffs, I'll expect a fresh alt in the first tournament (meaning no stats at all). Following that, I'm okay with pirates who want to use the same pirates for each one, provided they don't do any other puzzling on that pirate outside of the bake-offs.

Hyperranking, or using exploits by any other name will not be allowed. Same goes for cheats, hacks, etc. If I find evidence that a pirate has used an exploit/hack/etc. to increase their ranks I will disqualify them.

I don't like to use the word "automatic", but provided said pirate did not do anything to get disqualified the first to ultimate would be the winner.

Well "over" perhaps for the first place prize, but there's still 10 top placements. I know back in 2005 and 2006, I didn't play these style bakeoffs to win, I played to have some fun and I hope lots come for that very reason!

I'm assuming there will be some type of random checking of pirate information so that people don't send the tell a little prior to them achieving a higher standing?

Well, if you send me a tell before you achieve a higher rank, you're just wasting your time and my time. I don't see this as a huge problem, but if it becomes a problem I'll have to start disqualifying pirates for lying to me.

There's no penalty to losing rank. If you got to a certain rank and got it confirmed, it doesn't matter if your rank tanks afterward.

You no longer are foraging fruit, but "practicing" still gives you a score and contributes to your rank.

As has been said, just use the practice button and you'll be able to continue foraging.

Edit to add: I assume that hyperranking will be disallowed?

If you choose to do all six bakeoffs, I'll expect a fresh alt in the first tournament (meaning no stats at all). Following that, I'm okay with pirates who want to use the same pirates for each one, provided they don't do any other puzzling on that pirate outside of the bake-offs.

Hyperranking, or using exploits by any other name will not be allowed. Same goes for cheats, hacks, etc. If I find evidence that a pirate has used an exploit/hack/etc. to increase their ranks I will disqualify them.


I wouldn't call hyperranking an exploit (isn't it known by the other name of "quitting the puzzle"?) but I would have thought it doesn't really work for crafting anyway.
