Pirate101 April Fool’s PvP Tournament

We are excited to announce our April Fool’s Day Pirate101 PvP Tournament! Unlike many other tournaments, this one doesn’t take itself very seriously, as you’ll see from the rules ;). Before any of that, here are the logistics of the tournament

Basic Rules

  • All participants must be on the US Pirate101 server and be level 60+. You will declare a single pirate during sign-ups. There will be no switching pirates between rounds.
  • The tournament will be a single-elimination, bracketed tournament (the finals, and only the finals, will be best of 3) and will start April 1st.
  • All participants will join a tournament-exclusive Discord server in order to schedule their matches with their opponent.
  • Participants are given 1 week to complete the matches for each round. If you and your opponent cannot schedule a mutually acceptable time, let an organizer know and we can look into providing an extension.
  • All matches will take place in the Spar Chamber.
  • Your internet connection is your responsibility. Should both players disconnect simultaneously (due to a server DDOS attack, for instance), the match will be restarted with no consequences to either player.
  • Prizes are as follows:
    • First place: 10,000 Crowns + Ball ‘n Chain Mount
    • Second place: 5,000 Crowns + Ball ‘n Chain Mount
    • Third place: 2,500 Crowns
    • Fourth place: 2,500 Crowns
    • All players that complete all of their matches will receive a code for a 399 Crown Pirate101 Booster pack

As I noted before, the rules for this tournament are very unique. Please read them extremely carefully, as to not accidentally break them. Should you have questions, you can contact us in the comments, on social media, or on Discord.

Gear and Power Rules

  • All “No Auction” gear is banned.
  • All pets are banned.
  • The following powers are banned:
    • Valor’s Fortress
    • Blast of Discord
  • Any two pieces of gear that you equip cannot have the same power grants. For example, I can only run 1 piece of gear with a revive power on it. Running 2 or more would be illegal.
  • Weapon restrictions: (pay close attention)
    • All weapons used must be of a singular type (ex: only 1 of smashy, slashy, stabby, shooty, or staffy).
    • No hybrid weapons (slashy stabby weapons are banned, for instance)
    • Melee pirates (swashbucklers, buccaneers, and privateers) cannot use melee weapons (smashy, slashy, and stabby weapons). They must instead use either shooty or staffy weapons
    • Musketeer pirates cannot use shooty weapons. They must instead use staffy or melee weapons (smashy, slashy, and stabby weapons)
    • Witchdoctor pirates can not use staffy weapons. They must instead use shooty or melee weapons (smashy, slashy, and stabby weapons)

Companion Rules

I’m sure many of you have heard of “meme” companions. Units like Nurse Quinn, the Monquistans, and the Chicken Miner are units that largely fail to see play in PvE or PvP. The idea for this tournament is largely based on forcibly giving these “meme” tier companions a chance to shine. So, we’ve made a list of companions that are legal for each class of Pirate. The companions on this list are all obtainable from storyline and side quests exclusively. Purchased companions of any sort are not allowed in this tournament.

Remember, your companions must come from your class’ list of companions. If you think we’ve missed one, contact us. Just a note, we have pre-emptively banned some side quest units for power level concerns.

  • Are we allowed to wear pieces of gear with a power we already have, for example a Witchdoctor with a piece granting Mojo Storm?

    • Yes you can!
