The current round is due to end on 25 May 2024, 6:00:00 pm game time.

The prizes for this round will be announced shortly.

At the conclusion of the round, the game will be locked down for determination of the winners and a reset. The lock-down should take around 10 minutes.

When the next round is started you will have all of your stats and doubloons reset. Treasure chest capacities will remain unchanged. Your admiral, privateer and explorer days will remain, and all admirals will keep a percentage of their gold (20%) from the previous round. A bonus of 25 gold bars is paid per valid referral to each pirate that has referred other new pirates to the game in previous rounds.

All fleets (but not flotillas) are removed and all enemies lists are reset. Your inventory will be cleared out. Certain items are perpetual items and will not be deleted. These include prizes from previous rounds, barrels of rum, treasure chests, and jail keys.

Your Notes section will not be deleted but all your alerts and non-archived mail will be removed. If you want to keep any of your mail, make sure you move each message you want to keep to a custom folder.

Now is an excellent time to refer your friends to the game. They can learn how to play and get a fresh start when the round resets. You get extra gold for referring them, as well as an entry in a private major prize draw for each level they gain before the end of round, and if they find End of Round Golden Tickets they are eligible for the prize draws.

There are many prizes to be given away upon the conclusion of this round. These will be announced soon in the General Forum.

Please note that general gold sales will cease on 23rd May. You may still buy gold after this date, but only by contacting myself.

If you have any ideas for what you would like to see in the new round, especially quest related, feel free to post here, or in the Changing Winds forum. I am looking through the posts in the forum and plan on implementing some of the popular suggestions.

I expect the next round to be faster paced than this one, with some powerful quests released much earlier than usual. There will be one extra XP weekend per month. There are also 3 new quests ready to go―thank you to everyone for their quest ideas.

Thanks. Fixed now. This is what working 60 hours per week on a 4 day schedule does to my brain :/

I've applied for a team leader role in a different area of the company so I can go back to "normal" hours. It's really taken a toll on me.
