The current round is due to end on 27 February 2021, 6:00:00 pm game time.
At the conclusion of the round, the game will be locked down for determination of the winners and a reset. The lock-down should take around 10 minutes.
When the next round is started you will have all of your stats and doubloons reset. Treasure chest capacities will remain unchanged. Your admiral, privateer and explorer days will remain, and all admirals will keep a percentage of their gold (20%) from the previous round. A bonus of 25 gold bars is paid per valid referral to each pirate that has referred other new pirates to the game in previous rounds.
All fleets (but not flotillas) are removed and all enemies lists are reset. Your inventory will be cleared out. Certain items are perpetual items and will not be deleted. These include prizes from previous rounds, barrels of rum, treasure chests, and jail keys.
Your Notes section will not be deleted but all your alerts and non-archived mail will be removed. If you want to keep any of your mail, make sure you move each message you want to keep to a custom folder.
Now is an excellent time to refer your friends to the game. They can learn how to play and get a fresh start when the round resets. You get extra gold for referring them, as well as an entry in a private major prize draw for each level they gain before the end of round, and if they find End of Round Golden Tickets they are eligible for the prize draws.
There are many prizes to be given away upon the conclusion of this round. These will be announced in the General Forum.
Please note that general gold sales will cease on 26th February. You may still buy gold after this date, but only by contacting myself.
If you have any ideas for what you would like to see in the new round, feel free to post here, or in the Changing Winds forum.
Edited to update round end time to 27th Feb.
