    Re: 2019 Shark Week

    Why would they skimp out on only providing a RENTAL mount code without other crowns shop perks like discounted Cutthroat Bundles, shark companions, gear, and ship equipment? I can clearly see the copy/paste resemblance, but without "the chance to win a PERMANENT" mount incentive, there's zero worth for this year's Shark Week giveaway item. This would have been a great time to improve the Shark Week promotions with consumer item sales, given that Shark Week only happened ONCE in 2015 for Pirate101. Alas, it appears we must ONCE AGAIN... HEAVILY disagree with whoever's in charge of Kingsisle's marketing with no rebuttals from their end.

    I'm guessing that would have exceeded the Five-Minutes-for-Pirate101 rule that appears to be in effect at Kingsisle.
    @Bat Masterson?

    Re: 2019 Shark Week

    They didn't do anything special for wizard101 tho, you also only get a rental mount and no chance for permanent. So guess they just didn't feel it for shark week this year.

    @Bat Masterson?

    I'm not sure why the items were in place this time the way they are. What was it like last year for Shark Week?

    If you read my initial response, Shark Week never happened in 2018. The previous Shark Week for Pirate101 was in 2015, but at least the code redemption gave at least a 10% chance of a PERMANENT shark mount for lucky redeemers. There's no coupons, crown shop discounts, or any other benefits that happened besides the one measly code redemption. Anymore questions?

    Yes, did Shark Week ever happen in 2018?... kidding

    Thanks for the reply! I'll inquire with the team here to see if we can make these a bit more... interesting.
