Invented just a few days after Sep. 19th, 2013, sadly it was too late for it then, but now it gives us the more time to prepare for next year. I present to you

The 1st European 'TOG Like a Pirate'-Day

Why?

We all know the joy that starts to grow on everybodies face when they face a TOG II*, be it friend or enemy. Gritty rounds turn into friendly matches, stress and relief, win or loss, no matter, the fun suddenly jumps into the foreground. So, let's dedicate a special day to every tankers best giant, slightly sluggish friend! And because everybody loves puns and every HMS <TOG II*> Captain secretly wishes to be a pirate, we just seize September 19th and get two holidays in one. Isn't that awesome?

How?

The deal is simple. The next September 19th, on the 20th International 'Talk like a pirate' day, we gather together and show the world the mighty EU Warfleet.

Commands be shouted, sails and flags be hoisted and enemies be walking the plank, for the fun and joy of all, good or bad, landship or not.

The long time until the event starts gives folks enough time to prepare, polish their trusty ships (or maybe decide to acquire one), and hopefully get the word out to more fellow captains.

With a bit of luck, the European TOG like a Pirate day might even become a globally International TOG like a Pirate Day.

Can I support this grand event?

Well, there's not much you'll have to do. The only thing required is to just hold out till the day is there and get your TOG out of the garage. Tell your friends.

If you want, draw a picture, do a music video, whatever floats your boat (pun intended  :smile: ). I'm not restricting you from anything, nor force you.

This thread is open for all your ideas, praises, rants, whatever.

Also, here's a smaller signature version of the above picture, if you want it to help you spread the message:

Have great days and good matches, fellow tankers.

Genius...I think you should ping this idea over to the community team and see if they can do anything special for the day (TOG on sale, TOG competitions, WG TOG platoons throughout the day, etc...)

Oh, please, WG, produce a marketing video for this event, featuring Brian Blessed as the narrator!

(Incidentally, "TOG" means TRAIN in Norwegian and Danish...)

So do I! Could WG maybe put a Skull-and-Crossbones emblem and/or a Jolly Roger in the exterior paint module so we could paint our TOGs adequately for this event?

No, no, no, no! No pinning... no one ever reads pinned threads if there is more then one. Everybody that ever managed a forum would know that. This thread needs to be bumped every now and then instead.

Great idea/thread Silvercrow. It is positive, no whining, no complaining and it made me smile.  Have a +1

I would love WG to pick up this idea and run with it for next year.

Glad you guys approve :-)

Out of interest, would the community team consider running a competition of some sort for the modding community to create the best TOG II pirate ship skin?  I realise that only people good at creating skins would be able to participate, which would exclude a large portion of the player base (including me!), but you could always counter that by having the competition have two winners - one for the best actual skin and one for the best design for a skin (I haz stronk MS paint skills!).  That way everyone has a chance to win.
