Rules:

  • NA Only at this time
  • Bring a V25 tier 2 German DD with a 3 point captain.
  • Front two torp tubes only, no guns.
  • Any module configuration is allowed.
  • Each contender will fight against their own teammates, inside friendly cap circles. (This way we avoid too many ram kills).
  • 3 Rounds, top 4 players from each team will advance to the next round. Except in the last round, the jousting for each team ends when only 2 players remain, to avoid the possibility of cutting the match short for the opposite team.
  • 72 players MAXIMUM.

Have you tried the web based version?  This is a know way to circumvent most issues with the desktop client.

Damn, I'll be working. This sounds like my kind of nonsense. I would buy back the v25 for this. Maybe next time.

So are your own clan member/ allied clan members eligible for the prize? Since it was not explicitly forbidden in the event description, the assumption is your own friends and clan members can participate and be eligible for the prize. If that is so, then this is for you

 

Quote

While this Psammis was king of Egypt, there came to him men sent by the Eleians, who boasted that they ordered the contest at Olympia in the most just and honourable manner possible and thought that not even the Egyptians, the wisest of men, could find out anything besides, to be added to their rules. Now when the Eleians came to Egypt and said that for which they had come, then this king called together those of the Egyptians who were reputed the wisest, and when the Egyptians had come together they heard the Eleians tell of all that which it was their part to do in regard to the contest; and when they had related everything, they said that they had come to learn in addition anything which the Egyptians might be able to find out besides, which was juster than this. They then having consulted together asked the Eleians whether their own citizens took part in the contest; and they said that it was permitted to any one who desired it, both of their own people and of the other Hellenes equally, to take part in the contest: upon which the Egyptians said that in so ordering the games they had wholly missed the mark of justice; for it could not be but that they would take part with the man of their own State, if he was contending, and so act unfairly to the stranger: but if they really desired, as they said, to order the games justly, and if this was the cause for which they had come to Egypt, they advised them to order the contest so as to be for strangers alone to contend in, and that no Eleian should be permitted to contend. Such was the suggestion made by the Egyptians to the Eleians.

Yes they are eligible; however, an 07 member won the last event and elected to forfeit his 12,000 duobloons.   As a result, three non members from non allied clans took home the prizes.  The purpose of this event is to meet new members of the community and have some fun.

That is not true, there are several people who participated in the thread that are not purple the important thing for us however however is meeting and interacting with people in the event. The last time we held this event there were people from multiple different clans that participated and had fun. Comments like your are not only wrong but they are divisive and create an unnecessary separation in the player base. This is our attempt at meeting other people who share our passion for the game and who we havent yet met. I dont think its wrong of us to try and meet other players and we happened to choose a method of encouraging players to meet us by putting together a fun event with some prizes. I hope you can understand, this is not supposed to be some ultra competitive stressful event like ranked or supremacy league, just some fun entertainment with some prizes that hopefully brings some people over to say hi.

Hmm, there aren't any carriers like last year?

Well, I'm afraid I'm a bit too busy to participate, but good luck to all contestants!
