An idea for a new event

I was just trying to see if the April mission briefing was up on the main site or to see why there doesn't seem to be any regular minor weekend event going on this weekend, when a random thought pooped into my head for a new event.  This event could be as significant as next year's April Fool's Day event, or maybe a Halloween Event, or just some random event at some other time.

 

Pirates  :Smile_izmena:

I'm not suggesting something as silly as a line of pirate ships.  But I could see a pirates idea being leveraged in any number of ways.  For example, an April Fools Day or Halloween event could have ship skins based on a pirates motif, with pirate themed captains.  Or perhaps WG could come up with some a small number of ship clones/skins (one for each type, I suppose) and treat them sort of like the ARP or Dragon ships, and have a campaign to earn these clone ships or skins for existing ships.

I would suggest using British and French ships here, for historical reasons and to get away from every ARP/Dragon-like clone ship being IJN based.  For example, I could see using a clone of the Queen Elizabeth and calling it something like the Queen Annie's Revenge (Yes, "Annie" not "Anne", since the Queen Anne's Revenge was a real pirate ship).  Or maybe use the RN T5 BB Iron Duke and call it the Golden Duke (or Golden Duchess).  I'd think that there are all sorts of amusing names that could be created.

Or perhaps a pirate themed operation, where the pirates were the bots and it was your job to escort a convoy.  But rather than the bots seeking to sink the ships you're protecting, maybe they're trying to destroy the escort ships so that they can capture the freighters.  So, it'd be the players' job to not only sink all of the pirate ships, but to protect the freighters from being sunk by stray enemy torps, etc.

Or it could just be something on a smaller scale like a Pirates! weekend event, with some missions to earn certain flags and camos that had themed mission requirements.  And along these lines, I could see the devs coming up with a pirate themed camo.  Not a full blown reskin.  Just a camo paint job with a pirate theme.  Possibly something like that GZ Adler pain job, but instead of that color scheme and the eagle, maybe something that's mostly black with ya olde Skull and Crossbones in the paint job on the side of the hull.  And to really make it pirate themed, other than the normal base camo benefits, it should have a bonus to credits earned, since after all, isn't that what any good pirate is looking for, more coin?

 

Anyways, I thought that I'd just throw this out there....  Yo ho ho, me maties!!!

I like. Here's the mandatory theme song for the event:

 

 

Good one, Stauffenberg.  I used to be a big fan of ELP back in the day, and I remember this one.
