Paradox Interactive and Nitro Games has launched an all-new contest to reward players of the popular DLC East India Company: Pirate Bay. Based on the naval strategy title's in-game reward system (which offers points to sea dwellers as they progress in the game and climb up its ladder system), the two week event will call on players to challenge themselves to gain as many points as possible in the Pirate Bay campaign.
At the end of these two weeks, the top three players who have managed to gather the most pirate points and top the ladder will receive a $100 Gift Certificate on GamersGate for any Paradox titles released on the platform prior to September 13.
The contest will start on Monday August 31st at 3pm CET/9am EST and end on September 13 at 6pm CET/12 noon EST.
In order to be eligible to compete in the contest, players must download Pirate Bay Patch 1 (1.06). To access the patch, press the "Check for Updates" button on the in-game "Options" menu.
