I'm a good CD player, gotten to the high rounds many, many times, and picked up Rev Ram... so if you need me, I'll be available.

Pretty much everybody who I previously mentioned can no longer play in this game. Wow. Things certainly change fast...

Blacksmith isn't responding, so I need to give his spot to somebody else.

Dark_Pixie said she wouldn't be able to participate immediately in an earlier post, which means this game. (She'll be in the next game if she still wants to.)

Slasher left Wednesday to go to the coast, putting his status to unavailable.

So basically the only people left, and the people I am now asking to participate are...

- Igor Greybeard (Already knows about this and is locked in.)
- Helga Greybeard (Assuming she knows about this and is willing as well.)
- Captain Sharktooth (Going to message as confirmation coupled with the message regarding times and dates for this, since I am assuming he still wants to play, but must be sure to validate, as, AGAIN, things change and he might have become unvailable for reasons unknown, like Blacksmith.)

With that being said, I am locking this game officially to any more applicants and will quickly send messages to all official participants so that we can set up a time and date.

It is the weekend. There couldn't possibly be a better time to begin. Lets avoid procrastination and figure out how we are going to work this.

It has been 6 days... I think I'm due for my CD game after all my hard work lol. Lets make it happen.

I can do a CD game with a couple of days notice, provided that it's no later than 4pm EST, beecause of time differences.

Edward The Great, Dark Pixie and Slasher: Sorry for the inconveniences and misunderstandings but at this point I've got 3 people locked in to play because I honestly thought you guys were just going to remain unable to join until later down the road, where as I needed the game set up ASAP.

As soon as I am done with the first game, I am going to be setting up another and you guys can play then. An even larger problem is, at the moment, EVERYTHING I SAY is currently being approved by moderators, so I have to wait a relatively long period of time before my post is even available to be seen... THEN I have to wait for a response after first responding late MYSELF, and then respond back to THOSE responses. Its fun.

I feel like I'm a dog chasing my tail trying to get all this worked out. It seemed like such a simple concept at first, but then again, since when has anything involving Cannon Defense ever been anything less than crazy difficult? I've not even figured out times and dates amd yet I'm so close. It took me days and days just to find out for sure who was playing and who wasn't with all the craziness of constantly changing schedules and responsiveness from people.

Yet I've been able to keep some level of organization in my thread generally, so thats something.

With that being said, I hope you'll consider joining the next game. This is the first time I've tried to organize a CD game FOR REAL so I never expected anything to go perfectly (It clearly didn't).

Captain Sharktooth. Need your response to my PM when possible.
I'm assuming Igor is speaking on Helga's behalf as well, as they share the same last name, and since Igor already made an attempt to meet me in the game (which I logged off of, RIGHT as he was walking up behind me to say hi apparently... [I was on medication and it was late so I got tired earlier than I would have liked so I logged off]) that means they're still in this, and I only need to speak with YOU at this point so we can begin... whenever?

Post You've got to be kidding me.

Last night I crashed on Andaba. When I logged back on, I appeared next to 3 experienced cannon defense individuals (WOOHOO!) who had lost their 4th player because he had to leave. They were in need of a 4th player so they asked me.

The entire game we all sat and did nothing because somebody used some kind of glitch with the Ice Shot where you lay infinite amounts of ice that never disappears, and covers the entire playing field. As ice slowly damages anything that passes over it, that means any ships, even the big ships, were nearly INSTANTLY killed upon spawning into the game. I got to wave 56 doing this because I had to leave in the middle of the game to take my brother to the doctor. He wasn't feeling well, but before I left I picked up the famed Fleece Cannon Ram.

Now... I realize that Chain Shot +3 and Critical Strike Rank 3 isn't exactly the best I could have asked for, but it WAS ON MY LIST of rams that I wanted to take away from the game that I am currently setting up.

The game I am planning now is still on... But I feel compensated now for all my trouble planning this out... Shiny new Ram!

I also managed to pick up the Murauder Cannon Ram earlier on which grants you Infinite Chain Shot, Chain Shot +2, and Firebrand + 1... Somebody somewhere really wanted me to improve on my Chain Shot skills... Lol. Am I that bad at slowing ships down?

Best thing that has ever happened to me right after a total server crash... Actually it is the ONLY good thing that has ever happened to me after a crash now that I think of it.

General notice: The current CD game has been moved to this weekend instead of just trying to attempt it earlier and the next game has obviously has been moved to the weekend following.

Unhappy /Sad /Sad /Sad ***Spamming***

Weeks of stressful planning to make this CD game happen, and on the weekend we attempt to play it, the CD game crashes us no matter which CD fort we visit, and no matter which server we choose...

CD is the ONLY thing I have been playing the game for to earn some cannon rams to sail with, and use to cannon for friends' ships. I can't play CD, and I don't have a good Ram for anything but tearing down sails SLIGHTLY easier. So what am I even paying for this game for anymore? Talking? Running around killing enemies for weapons I don't need anymore? NO No no... I'll pass on that...

POTCO may have just got on my nerves for the final time.
It is as if they can't fix something without breaking something else.

Reminds me of Ice Age The Meltdown when that squirrel thing is trying to plug the holes in the ice wall that has water pouring out, and every time he plugs one, a new hole opens and water gushes out of THAT hole. Or maybe the wack-a-mole game at that pizza place near my house... Darn those moles.

A big thanks to those of you who attempted to participate, and those of you who officially met me in the game to make the countless attempts we made to try to get the CD game to work without all of us crashing at the load screen.

I think what makes this entire situation so tragic is how much effort was put into it. This was so undeserved it isn't even funny... Maybe it would have been KIND of funny if I didn't make like... a 2 page long thread about a SINGLE stinking CD game setup or something crazy like that..

I'm not overreacting am I? I hope not. I would like to think I have the right to be this annoyed that the only time I have free time which I freed up ONLY to play CD, is now gone because CD decided to stop working... because it felt like it? I can't even express how rediculous it is. I wonder how many other people have planned so hard for a CD game and had it ruined this way? Everything was perfect... The way I met up with you guys... The time zone... How quickly we found an empty CD zone on Padres... We even all new exactly how the game was going to go down! Then... *Flushing Noise*

Anyways I'm going to go calm down a bit. Again, thanks for participating and I apologize if this seemed like an overreaction. For all I know CD could be up and running by tomorrow, but what if it isn't? I might as well get my ranting out NOW so that Pirates Online Staff (by some small chance) may have it catch their eye and realize how EXACTLY they have inconvenienced me as a paying customer, with all the work I put in to this garbage.

I'm glad I was least able to play the "See How Big Of A Thread For CD You Can Make Before You Fail Horribly" game.
Thanks guys... If this doesn't work out this weekend, sorry about making you free up time only to have it not work out... I realize you probably could have done countless other things with the several hours you put aside JUST to help me... Some random guy. Means a lot to me really.
If this does end up working at some point tonight or this weekend, I sincerely thank you for providing me with the game.


Goodbye for now...
Eric Sunloather

FYI guys, I'm going to be on Abassa Tortuga at around 9:00pm est. so feel free to meet up with me there and we can try this again like we did last time. I have not had the time to log on today to see if CD works correctly but I will find time after breakfast to log on real quick and check for you all! Wouldn't want EVERYBODY to crash and maybe mess up their game for a long period of time... I'll take that punishment.

And by the way- My last post was edited for trolling? Care to explain? I can't even tell what was edited out. I'm not mad because I'm sure I overlooked some kind of posting guideline but... If you told me here or maybe in a Private Message what I did wrong it would help me be more proactive about exactly what I post in response to people...

I've read the whole post that was made about Trolling but to be honest I didn't even know what it meant until I read that, so clearly I wasn't making an ATTEMPT to troll. I'm still not sure I remember what all was said in that post about it actually. I just know it was a big big big definition.

Guess I'll go back and read that post again then, huh...

Anyways good luck meeting up with me tonight at 9:00pm est. Again, it will be Tortuga. I haven't changed that. It seems to be a place where a lot of people meet anyways so why not...

And on a slightly unrelated note I've changed my Cannon Skills to prioritize faster firing and reload but kept barrage, so now I'll have some more confidence... Heh.

Anyways see you later guys... Happy plundering.

Hope you have better luck but CD has been down to me on both Regular and test since yesterday evening. And of course online support does not work Sundays.
