Wink Tutorial Troubles - Cookiecutter's Last Stand

I'm sure you all know Rambleshack as a quick and easy introduction to the Caribbean. That was not the case for one misfortuante Freebooter. To begin, the lad's name was supposed to be George Cookiecutter, but apparently Disney does not allow that name so instead he was named Burger King, resulting in the temporary name. But not being allowed a name was not the first trouble for Mr. Cookiecutter. Soon after he stepped out of jail, he fell completely off the island into the treacherous waters below. From there, the land by the jail was too steep to get onto, so he swam over to Bo Beck's sloop and got on the beach where two skeletons awaited him. Being previously denied his only chance to get a rusty cutlass from Will Turner, Freebooter was left to fend for himself, weaponless. A skeleton began attacking him with a dagger and poor Freebooter couldn't fight back, so he ran over to Bo's vessel. Beck had strangely lost some weight and the cap, and had grown a beard, but that's besides the point. Freebooter desperately cried for help as the skeleton ruthlessly continued slashing with the knife, but Beck just watched from his boat without responding. He wouldn't even let the poor lad on board. In a matter of minutes, Freebooter was out cold on the dock, the skeleton left unharmed. From there Freebooter was supposed to go to jail, but the game got stuck on the Jail loading screen so he was left in an eternity of loading. And that is the end of the tale of George Cookiecutter aka Freebooter's miserable fate. Attached are some images of Cookiecutter's tragic last moments.
Mister Cookiecutter was just a merry cookie cutter in a Port Royal bakery, and clearly did not deserve this fate. Now who is going to cut the cookies? This is a great loss in cookies for the people of the Caribbean. And this loss calls for an uprising, a revolution. It will be called the Cookiecutter Revolution, and pirates from across the ocean will join forces in retaking the island of Rambleshack and searching for a way to restore Port Royal's cookie production.

Any questions?

CarribeanThunder is a pirate wannabe
RIP The Cookiecutter.

(On a side note, I thought the game prevented you from being knocked out in the tutorial? I swear I'd tried this once but I would remain at 1 health)

Honestly, I find the tale rather humorous. I was just cracking up hard as I read it. The moment he glitched in the jail cell, he was toast. He needed to get back into that jail cell and try again. Program is designed to let you choose to proceed with the tutorial or not when you click Shift to exit the jail.

I guess we have a glimpse of what it would be like to bypass that. With the way the game tends to become like Swiss cheese, sooner or later, we will have more players meet the fate of the late George Cookiecutter.

I miss his cookies...

Yeah, my brother saw me playing and said George wasn't going to get knocked out, but somehow he did, probably because of how much glitching had taken place before hand :P Then I logged off because Jail wouldn't load and George spawned in jail when I returned. I actually clicked the option to do the tutorial again and nothing happened so after a while I just skipped and then at PR he wouldn't take out his rusty cutlass. There were a few other things I couldn't do but I think my connection was fine because I was invited to a crew. The cutlass problem and other problems weren't fixed when I walked into Fort Charles, but of course logging out fixed it. I was just surprised at how I could actually mess up my gameplay so much for a while. I also better add that George didn't simply fall off Rambleshack, he squeezed through the fance by the jail though it was probably obvious.

Surpisingly, the Potco services people actually took the time to reply to some kid asking why he couldn't name a pirate "Cookiecutter". They told me to name him "Cookiecuter" and they would later add the second T themselves :P I actually kinda wonder why they bothered responding... anything else I should tell them once I reply? >: D

Just a simple 'Thank you' would do.
