Bounty Bay Online winners announced

Bounty Bay Online winners announced

The Bounty Bay Online competition is now closed and the winners have been announced.

Ok - put down your cutlass and wench, International Talk Like A Pirate Day may be a go but our Bounty Bay Online competition is now officially over.

For those of you who didn't enter and will thus be forced to walk that thar plank, we shall first recap!

We had three full copies of the pirate-themed MMO, Bounty Bay Online, to give away along with a whopping fifty account keys for two-weeks of free gameplay for some lucky runners up. All we asked in return is that you tell us the secret pirate name you've wanted since childhood.

Now, with the competition closed, it's time to announce the winners once and for all!

Our first winner, bagging himself a full copy of the game as loot, is Alex Manktelow, who has secretly harboured a life-long wish to be known as Captain Skankletoes.

Next in line is Ivan Lynn, who wasn't afraid to admit that he should always wished his birth name had been Captain Stinky Fingers, apparently for "obvious reasons". Moving swiftly on...

Our favourite entry by far however was from Tommy Giovannelli, who made even our most hardcore PC case modder chuckle with his piratey name of Captain Long-Mod Dremel Beard because, yes, a Dremel beard would be truly, truly awesome.

As for all you runners up - you need not worry. There's a tad too many of you for our lazy fingers to talk about (it was a late, grog-filled evening last night), but we'll be contacting you all directly over the next few hours and sending you the codes you'll need.

In the meantime, feel free to congratulate the winners or moan about your bad luck in the forums!

I think I may have set the bar very low here

But if I wanted the prize (I don't really) I'd submit Captain Bitbeard

Ummm, I've played this exact game before, telling by the screenshots... ->

It was called Voyage Century Online. ->

Look similar, anyone? Is this one of those open source game where people can modify it to suit their needs? Like Ragnorak Online or whatever? I mean, even the bloody website icon is the same...

I think your right Duste ... the GUI looks the same as well from the screen shots.

If this were Digg I'd so bury it down for inaccuracy. :P I mean, why pay for a free game? Lol.
