& now seemed like a good time to thank Fem & all the others that helped organize & run the event.

Unfortunately I took my 1st Amtrak trip the next day after it ended to do some work in Arizona & wasn't aware that coach didn't have access to wifi until I was on the train...I was gonna send a thank you on the train on the feedback site & couldn't & by the time I got back home the feedback site was gone.

I did start one before I left but had to go before finishing so made of copy (to be sent on train) of which I will start w/& continue from there:

 

1st off I would like to thank all ye scallywags that helped put this event together & for allowing this scurvy dog ta participate.
 
I used to work at the Renaissance Fair & enjoyed the roll playing (which unfortunately would tale me all night to type this out if I tried to stay in character so I'll just try this in plain old English...ARRRG...sorry about that).
 
Unfortunately my 2 finger typing skills (& my computers issue w/not wanting to paste the message at times for me when I hit CTRL V) were not up to keeping up w/chat w/out being distracted at times resulting in many instances of being out of place too early or needing to reverse off of an island or 3 here & there resulting in me being more of a detriment to my team than a help at times (more so on smaller maps where engagement issued early...but sometimes even on bigger maps if the pirate exchanges continued for awhile).
 
I wasn't chosen in the 1st wave & was surprised to see the invite because some of the originals couldn't make it (& I thank them also)...unfortunately it didn't give me a whole lot of time to set up all the ships I wanted to run. I tried to run as many different ships as possible (other than a couple of T6s & T8s at the end I never ran the same ship twice) as I wanted (& again appreciated the opportunity) to try out as many premiums I don't have as I possibly could.
 
Unfortunately that resulted in a lot of me forgetting what consumables I had at hand on certain ships because each battle was a different combination at times...I'm kinda making excuses for my poor win rate as I personally wanted to do better for my teams than I did. I'm sure I would've done much better had I just stuck w/just a few ships (or even just a ship type) but Tragic Loss requested we run a bunch of different ships so I just went w/that as my theme (I just got tired towards the end & did some repeats in some of the T8s to try & finish w/more wins but it backfired unfortunately).
 
For Friday I decided to run just T1s & premium T2s for the 1st wave...& all the T9s & T10s (except CVs...I'm not above T5 in CVs yet) that I haven't obtained yet on the tree...for the 2nd wave.
For the scheduled tier battles (Sat & Sun) I exclusively ran premiums (other than the Kuma for the 1st T4 battle).
 
I personally had a blast & out of around 90 battles (I lost about 10 more than I won so had around a 40/50 W/L ratio but don't remember the exact #s) I survived less than 15 (& I was farmed by 3 or 4 Pirates) but was able to give out around 70 rewards & was glad to be able to help the community in that way & again would like to thank you for the opportunity...07 to all who participated.

It was a ton of fun. I do hope to be a pirate myself one of these times... 

Speaking of such things... I got one of ya and 98% of another (ks'd for only 2K) so when again did they say those rewards were coming?

I believe Fem said CoB today was the target.

It was a fun event, but I did not get anything for sinking a pirate crew.  I sank pirate crew that was in Graf Zeppelin from my Yamato, but forgot to take screenshot, and got nothing for it.

Give a couple more days.  I was part of the Corgi Events and sometimes takes them a few days to get it done.  If not I would contact them, they get the data about sinkings from WG I believe.  And that is how it is handled.

Maybe you are right.  After all that was the only Graf Zeppelin kill for me in months.

I have got everything but the Pirate flag, which I assume will arrive in due course. Thanks WG!

Yup!  Received premium today with pirate fleet hopefully coming in the future.

It was very well-run and I hope to participate again in the future :cap_like:.

Oh I forgot I was going to get rewards for killing two pirate crews.

Though honestly I'm expecting a glitch or something to prevent it from happening given the debacle the communications on this subject has been.

Well in Texas that'd be what, 5pm/6pm/7pm? Curious, as it's ~7:30pm EST and nothing, nada as yet. 

Maybe it'll show up later or even tomorrow, eh ?
