Subject: Triple Threat Fleet Challenge!   PostPosted: Mon Jul 11, 2016 3:50 pm Reply with quote

Ahoy, sailors! Welcome to this Triple Threat fleet challenge!

Yer challenge, should ye choose to be acceptin' of it
Design an up to 60 point, nation pure fleet consisting of three three-masted ships and assorted crew.

Rules 'n' Such
1. No keelhauling! (That means no events, ya hear me?)
2. No freebooters! (That means only crew of yer nation, and no Limit crew!)
3. You can use pieces from any official set--including Return to Savage Shores! Make sure to use similar ships as proxies.
4. You can include one unique treasure.
5. One fleet per entrant, please!
6. Judging will be subjective (but not arrrrrrrbitrary), looking at running, gunning, etc.
7. Write a description (and mention this challenge in it). This will help me to understand your fleet.
8. Include "Triple" in your fleet name (this should help me find it).
9. No forts, flotillas, or canoes (see below).

Deadline
July 24th is the Grand Reveal day! Make sure your fleet is shipshape and Bristol-fashion by then.

Tha' Loot
Bragging rights and the chance to make the next fleet challenge!

Are Canoes and Flotillas are forbidden as well [as forts], on account of having 0 masts instead of 3?

(Mostly just confirming the assumption, in case anyone got a crazy idea to try to bend the rules more than what appears to be intended.)

Flotillas have a flag, which is not a mast. Native canoes do not have masts. Woelf's assumption is correct; both types are illegal for this challenge.

are Silver explorers allowed?

Yes, but the silver coins count for your UT.

I was wondering when the next challenge would start! As usual I'll be submitting a fleet. Smile

Exclamation Oi, captain! An enemy has been spotted on the horizon! Razz Laughing

I've already made my fleet and I'm in love with it. Laughing I like it more than most of my challenge fleets, although I reckon that's partly because of recency bias. Smile

Yarrrr, this does sound fun. It's not overly complicated like the challenges I've run, so if anyone is looking to join a challenge for the first time (as in, EVER, or as in recent times) then this is a good place to start. If you're short on time this summer, it'll still be easy to join. If you've got time, you can also get creative and complicated with it. I'll try my best to join in, too.

Oh I am in, and I already have a great idea on my fleet. Well, maybe like 6 ideas lol.

Part of me wants to know what nations people are using - I don't want to pick the same nation as anyone else lol

I'm using the Pirates from SCS. I would have a lot of ideas as well, but I purposely picked my personal restrictions very fast to avoid that scenario heh, and it's worked out well.

I took a very different approach from my normal fleet building, choosing ships from only one set like Ben. However I'm not going to spill the beans on my fleet until grand review day, muwahahahahahaha! Very Happy Twisted Evil

You just can't wait for Grand Reveal Days can you? Razz

If you're bored, go vote and comment on some miniature reviews!

This challenge is getting interesting, especially if lord_denton makes a comeback.

I found a little spare time this afternoon and threw something together: Triple Threat fleet.

It's locked so you can't actually view it yet, but the name should provide a hint.
