Congrats you guys, great job! Thanks @admin and the Devs for making the challenge. It used to take forever for me to cap an AI LGV, now it's quick - and they're often quite lucrative.

Well done to all that participated.

Was a time race but all have proven that it is possible to emulate captures of line commerce large ships with a sloop same as many passages in history.

Snappy salute.

Well congrats to the winners and interesting video....though this really should of been per server not top 3 of all players.   It's really hard for the smaller pop servers to compete with the larger pop one.

 

OH and 15 Ping?  Where the hell do you live @TommyShelbyin the basement where the server is? lol

I agree, nice event; more of this kind would be appreciated

e.g. demast a t-brig in a cutter as fast as possible / sink any other ship in ship xy as fast as possible / ...

And / or to keep the players playing, maybe add daily 'missions', which give additional rewards, example:

  • Day 1 - Complete any mission - 15 PvE Marks
  • Day 2 - Deal xy amount of damage to an enemy player - 5 pvp marks
  • Day 3 - Sell X amount of trading goods - Ressource XY as redeemable
  • Day 4 - Sink an enemy player 5th rate or higher - random skillbook
  • ...
  • Day x-1 - Craft ship XY - 5 Labor Contracts
  • Day x - Participate in a Port Battle - 5 Conquest Marks

Objectives and rewards obviously are up to be changed / adjusted. Just a few ideas.

Abusable though alts i know.. But IMO players need a kind of motivation to log in the next day, especially when they had just lost a ship they grinded for several hours.

Congrats to the winners!

I actually recorded a video too but didnt upload it because i didnt want to steal rediii's place. Now regretting it since i wont get the participation award :( But well, i came with nothing and i go with nothing, so what did i lose? Nothing!

 

Anyways, shameless upload (maybe the devs are in a generous mood haha):
