  • Unable to complete a quest? Quit it with !Pirates Governor Quest Abandon

 

Ship Speed - The ship's speed be based on many factors. The fastest a ship can travel while sailing to a port is 13 knots which equates to a travel time of 2 minute per cell (see the map).

The formula for ship speed is: 13 - {Normal time to sail across a cell (currently set to 10 mins)} + 1 (if rumor is active/ship is hidden) - Damage (-1 for every -10% ship HP) + Speed Bonuses (cleaning and/or greasing) + 2 (cotton sails ship upgrade) + 1 (copper plating ship upgrade) + 2 (custom routes !Pirates Sail Path) + any other speed bonuses. Maximum number o' bonuses be limited to +8.

Ship vs Ship Battles - This event puts your ship up against another ship may it be a player run ship or bot ship.

Ship vs Ship battles will start if:

  • Both ships are connected to IRC
  • Both ships are sailing
  • Ships are within 3 cells of one another http://tiny.cc/PiratesLive
  • Cells are equal to 2 leagues
  • Ships are not in a ship battle cooldown

Ship battles will consist of 4 phases: Chase, Battle, Boarding, End

  • Ship battles will start at the Chase Phase. Once ships are within 2 leagues of another, the Battle Phase can be initiated.
  • If the ships continue in the Chase Phase and the distance is 0, they will collide and the Boarding Phase will be initiated.
  • If a ship starts the Battle Phase, the Boarding Phase will can be initiated once a ship has <25% HP. If a ship has <10% HP, that ship will surrender and the End Phase will start.
  • In the Boarding Phase, once all pirates are defeated in duels, the End Phase will start.
Ship1 = ship that initiated the attack
Ship2 = ship that is being attacked

If time limit is reached, battle stops and both ships will resume sailin' to their previous destination:
  • Ship2 will be hidden an unable to be attacked until docked or moored
  • Chase phase has a 15min time limit
  • Battle phase has a 15min time limit
  • Boarding phase has a 15min time limit

At anytime...

  • Ship1 can abandon the attack
  • Ship2 can surrender which will initiate the End phase


Command Cooldowns - in order to even the playing field between small and large populated ships, (!P Battle Unfurl, Reef, Fire, etc) will be based on a base cooldown + number of pirates onboard + number of pirates active

 

Chase Phase

Both ships must be sailing and near each other
This phase will be initiated by a vote from the crew or the Captain
This phase begins with Ship2 having the choice to run away or fight from the Captain or a number of the crew. The longer it takes for Ship2 to decide, the closer Ship1 gets
If no response, Ship1 will incur a speed bonus that may enable it to catch up (then have option to attack or board the ship)
If Ship2 decides to run, both ships will have the ability to raise/lower sails
If Ship2 decides to fight, the Battle Phase will begin


Ship2 trying to escape:
Ship2 will be able to choose what direction to sail, (North, East South, West), and must be cognizant of land masses, weather, and borders of the live map
Ship speed will be dependent on what direction ship is moving in relation to the wind and wind speeds
Sails on both ships will be set to half (6/12) so players can unfurl them to increase ship speed
Once Ship2 changes direction, Ship1 must match the direction. The time it takes for Ship1 to match Ship2's direction will be factored into speed
Ship speed will be based on: ship upgrades, speed bonuses, number of sails raised, direction (for Ship2), direction change time (for Ship1), wind direction, if Ship2 is idle, and ship1 will receive a speed bonus

If Ship2 goes over 10 leagues, the ship 'gets away'
If Ship1 closes within 2 leagues, The Battle Phase will begin
If Ship1 does not get within 2 leagues of Ship2 within 15mins, Ship2 will be hidden from the live map and will not be able to be attacked by Ship1 for a short time

If Ship2 is running, Ship1 can abandon the chase and continue on their original voyage
If Ship1 gets within 1 league, Ship1 can start the Battle Phase
If Ship1 gets within half a league, Ship1 can start the Boarding Phase
If distance becomes 0, battle phase will be skipped and boarding phase will commence. Both ship's players will suffer penalties for the ship collision (stunned, stamina or power loss, etc). Speed at time of impact will determine how many pirates are stunned and how much stamina/power penalties they receive


Commands:

  • Abandon - Ship that started the attack can stop the chase. Cannot be performed if the other ship has decided to attack back
  • Attack - Ship that is being attacked can use this to start the battle phase

  • Reef - Lowers a sail to slow down

 

Battle Phase

This phase will be similar to interactive port battles, where you can raise or lower sails, steer the ship, shoot your gun, shoot cannons, etc.
Depending on what ammo type is used, will affect damage to the sails, hull, or pirates
More sails raised = faster ship is at which means more damage and chance to hit other ship
The more damaged a ship is, the slower it will be...
The faster of the two ships will be more accurate in shooting the other ship or pirates
Players who are hurt during the battle will either unable to perform commands for a short time or lose power/stamina
There is a chance a cannon shot can take out multiple inactive players (for the rest of the ship battle) during a successful hit (Critical)

If a ship reaches <10% health, the ship will surrender and the End Phase will be initiated

Pirates can 'power up' by visiting the store for blackpowder, sharpen, rum or using items that give power or stamina.
Players can see their boarding power wit' !P Power
Captains will gain +2 favor with each duel
Inactive pirates (pirates not !P Awake) will automatically fight in the background. On shared channel ships (in !P Game Options, Reduce Msgs: ON) the duels will not be announced to prevent excessive messages
Pirates that lose a duel or are critically hit, will be unable to continue the battle
If the boarding phase is taking too long, chance for multiple inactive players to be taken out by RNG to 'hurry up' the boarding

Whaling - Have a chance to experience life as a whaler! A minimum o' 3 pirates be needed!

Whale events will occur when at sea, at random, or during a party.
When a whale 🐳 is sighted, there will be a call for players who want to join. !Pirates Whale Aye This is the best time to ensure your stamina is full as you will be leaving the ship.
After 3 minutes has elapsed, the rowboat will be prepared to be launched at which time players must choose what position to choose from.

Rowboat Positions (in order of need):

  • Coxswain* - !Pirates Whale Iron - Tis player will act as the captain of the rowboat and direct the other players with commands. When the whale is near, this player will also use the whale iron ➘ to "harpoon" the whale
  • Rower* - !Pirates Whale Row - Responsible for paddling the boat out to the whale.
  • Rudderman* - !Pirates Whale Steer - Tasked with steering in the direction of the whale.
  • Lineman - !Pirates Whale Line - Tis player must keep the line from bein' tangled n' ensure the line does not get too hot from friction.
  • 2nd Rowerman - !Pirates Whale Row - Responsible for paddling the boat out to the whale with Rower #1

* - Required to launch the rowboat

Players must only perform the command when the Coxswain says, and only once... The Coxswain will receive specific messages on when and what to direct the crew to perform.

Reason for a whale to escape:

  • Crew fails to perform a command 3 times
  • Coxswain fails to "hook" the whale in the alotted time
  • Crew does not unfoul a tangled line
  • Crew does not cool the line and loggerhead
  • Crew does not row away from the whale once harpooned

If the crew fails to perform their tasks after the whale has been harpooned, the rowboat will be destroyed and the crew will suffer

If the crew is successful, they will be rewarded based on the number of actions they have performed in doubloons and receive whale oil
