All Hands on Deck

WINNERS for this event have been announced. A hearty "Thank Ye" to everyone who participated!

Avast, Puzzle Pirates on tablets is closing in!

Please note: the event location has changed from Emerald to Meridian.

In preparation for the tablet release of Puzzle Pirates, we're looking to our dedicated community of buccaneers, scallywags, and ne'er–do–wells in order to conduct a performance test of our recently upgraded server hardware. This test needs live pirates gathered on a single ocean, so please board Meridian on Friday, May 24th from noon to 3 PM PDT, and see if you can bring the server to its knees! We know that it can be hard to motivate a pirate without the promise of loot, so we will be giving away an iPad for every milestone of 1,000 pirates logged in concurrently on Meridian!* This means one iPad will be given away if we first reach 1,000 players logged in on Meridian at the same time during the event, a second iPad will be given out if we reach 2,000 logged in on Meridian at the same time during the event, and so on. As an additional bonus, we will also be increasing base pillaging and treasure chest payouts and increasing injury chances for the duration of the event.

Please see the OFFICIAL RULES for full details.

Surrounding the event on Meridian, we will also increase payouts and chances of injury on each of other oceans according to the following schedule:

  • Cerulean: May 24th, 4 PM to 7 PM PDT
  • Emerald: May 24th, 4 PM to 7 PM PDT
  • Jade: May 24th, 4 PM to 7 PM PDT
  • Opal: May 24th, 8 AM to 11 AM PDT

*Eligibility for physical prizes is limited to US and Canadian residents. We love our international players, but a pack of Atlantean lawyers saboteurs struck before we could maneuver through the hoops to expand eligibility. We hope you understand and will still join us during the event!
