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

Only 1 day left!

The event will be held on the 'EU 2' server, a dedicated chat channel 'TOGLikeAPirate' will (hopefully) be present.

There is no predefined time, but we can coordinate and team up with any people you know and/or meet in the event chat channel, so hopefully there will always be a good number of fellows to TOG it up with over the course of the day.

 

 

Prop your engines, hoist your flags and polish the sand and dirt off your proud warships. In less than 2 months it's finally time. The first 'TOG Like a Pirate'-day, conventiently placed on September 19th, on the international Talk-Like-A-Pirate-Day, so you can add your fine nautic wartalk to this grand event.

 

 

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, why not just seize September 19th and get two holidays in one. Isn't that awesome?

 

How?

The deal is simple. The next September 19th, 2014, 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 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.

 

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.

If I am playing on that day I will take the Tog out for a spin. But I am not going to talk like a pirate people look at me as if I am a bit strange as it is. :smile:

I count millions1 of TOG II*s in the Dinger's possesion. We've even got a fleet somewhat organised. We all hope the Dinger's fleet helps brake the MM on 19th September.

Well, the original idea is/was for the event to last the entire day, so as to increase the general TOGiness of this day and the general chances of encountering one or more of our own during this day. I didn't pick a specific time, though with a channel to talk in, we can very much team up the people that are there at any given time. And I suppose we should at least agree on one of the EU servers. May as well be EU 2.

A dedicated channel actually sounds like a good idea, though I don't have much experience yet with creating those channels. If I create one the evening before, will it stay?

HMS Repulsive reporting for duty, well if anyone is online mid afternoon anyway...

(and yes most of the dingerz have TOG's, but very rarely play with 'em)

My TOG is still near-mint factory condition with only a few test runs performed on her after the acquisition of said vessel.

Alright folks, tomorrow's the day. The ingame channel stands, it's 'TOGLikeAPirate'. It should stay up until the first people enter tomorrow. I shall join as soon as time permits. May the TOG be with you.
