BEACON BRAWLERS

Beacon Brawlers, Masterminded by Fortune Union is one of the community's newer events.

Beacon Brawlers! It says it in the name! 

Each crew will be assigned a flame color.Their goal is to light the Brazier at the top of the island and hold it lit with their team color for a total of 5 minutes! 

For this particular event, each crew will be bringing forward four Pirates to duke it out at Devils Ridge!

Teams will fire themselves from the ship's cannons to the island and battle it out to light the Brazier and claim victory!

Setup

  • Each crew will be assigned a colour for each round: Blue, Red, or Green. 

  • Each crew will be dressed in the same outfit matching the color of their team. Please be prepared with an outfit for each colour, as teams may need to change outfits depending on who proceeds to the finals. 

  • Each crew will be assigned an event staff member who will be responsible for loading the team captain in and out of ships. We will provide you the staff member gamer tag/IGN the day before the event so that Team Captain can add them to friends list ahead of time.

  • Galleons will be positioned and anchored in place and are not to be moved even if under attack from PVE. 

  • Merchant missions & tall tales will be active on all ships to minimize the difficulty and frequency of skeleton spawns - Players are not to cancel these missions please. 

  • A team timer will start/continue once the beacon is lit with their color flame and will stop when it is either extinguished, changed to another color, or gameplay is halted due to PVE. 

  • Boundaries will be set on the island using crates/chests/gems. Please keep event play within the boundaries.

  • Ships will be restocked with available fruit between rounds in a storage crate. The amount and type will be divided evenly between the ships, and will depend on what was gathered during setup. Any fruit remaining on a ship will not be removed by staff between rounds.

Victory
