GAME NOW COMPLETED WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED BY UBISOFT SHORTLY (CONGRATS). The exclusive reveal : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7SlP06mR_0
************************************************** ************************************************** **************************
At the "suggestion" :P by MR Shade, I am creating a new thread to discuss the special invitation event.

Now for those who don't know or where not invited:Here in the UK several Watch members where sent a direct email from Mark the UK marketing Manager who invited us to participate in a special pre launch event.

We had to submit our addresses and wait.... whilst not discussing it with anyone.So today has rolled around, and I've received a letter with an AC4 stamp on it, it contained a playing card which has clues on it.

I've also received an email from Mark which has the following:

"Assassin!

We are almost about to begin! You should receive something very soon.

This is your key. The question is to what?

Please feel free to share everything anywhere you like. Enjoy, and see you on the otherside!Mark"

************************************************** ************************************************** ************************************************** *********************************

OK so I've edited this since it's been a few days and we need more people working on this reveal when this goes live!

So the cards (as posted by Lady (thank you) show a message and a series of numbers (176.58.109.224) which of course is an IP address for :

www.ac4aceofspades.com

Entry is gained by entering the co-ordinates of the final resting place of the Queen Anne's revenge - Blackbeards first command (a ship he lost within 1 year.... are we seriously saying this guy is Kenway's mentor?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Anne%27s_Revenge

For those with limited patience, I.e. none, they are:
1st box
34°41′44″N
2nd box
76°41′20″W
(best to copy from wikipedia since due to formatting copying from other places can go wrong)

FYI - that is read Degree's, minutes, seconds - so Thirty four degrees 41 minutes and 44 seconds North, Each degree on a map is broken into time measurements for those who don't know.

A Web game for the launch of?????? - ? because we have to work towards a reveal, points for treasure etc will all add up towards this reveal (speculation a launch trailer)

The game itself is a web based pirate game where you can either sign up as crew or a captain. A captain has a ship and must recruit 5 members before 24 hours has passed or his ship fails. Crew sign up to a ship and help the ship (and themselves ) by competing in the games.

A captain will steer the ship (plot it's course on the browser) from the games activation day (September 30th - What time remains an open question since the server seems to be on CET). They will chose which islands to plunder ships to attack treasure to find etc etc etc (other players ships can and will liekly be attacked since in doing so you increase your chance of winning prizes and decrease their chances.... BE WARNED!)

"Captains… create your own ship, name her, recruit your crew and write the ship’s articles that you will live by. Set a course on the first day, set sail, explore and pillage gold.

With power comes responsibility! You must recruit 5 other souls to complete your crew within 24 hours of creating your ship. Recruit your friends or chose free sailors at the docks.

Failure to fill all 5 crew places means the ship flounders and your crew are returned to the docks to find another vessel. A failed captain cannot create another new ship but returns to the docks to join any other ship as crew.

Beware Captain, you can only create a ship once, so choose crew carefully and name her well."

"Crew… Apply to join ships that are recruiting at the docks or accept an invitation from a recruiting captain. Swear your allegiance to your ship and crewmates.

Each day hunt for gold along your ship’s course and grow your personal fortune as well as swelling the ship’s coffers.

Prove yourself and you could rise to captain your ship - the highest scoring crew member takes on captaincy of the ship for the next day.

Pirate ships operate under a crude democracy, giving crew the power of mutiny if a captain fails in their duty. Any shipmate can spark an uprising and depose a bad captain."

Come September 30th we will have 4 days of looting, pillage, battle to score points. the highest scoring player (Individual) on each day will win prizes

The 5th day's points along with other days totals (to be confirmed but currently reads to be) of the ENTIRE crew of a ship will result in one SHIP (all UK based players on that ship) being awarded the "grand prize"

Prizes are on the individual days -
Days 1-3
1st place Kenway figure (which version unknown). 2nd & 3rd keyrings, candles, T-shirt (unknown print likely the AC4 reveal T-shirt)
Day 4:
1st place Buccaneer edition of the game - platform of your choice) 2nd & 3rd keyrings, candles, T-shirt
Day 5
Crew of winning ship to receive (UK based participants):
A Black Chest Collectors Edition on their chosen platform
An Assassin's Creed hoody.
But best of all they win a truly unique prize - a super exclusive signed, numbered Vic Lee screen print - inscribed with the victorious vessel’s name and the names of the six souls who crewed her!

Runners up to receive
A super exclusive signed and numbered Vic Lee screen print
A cool Assassin's Creed T-shirt

This thread is to be used for discussing this specific promotion, and it's clues / information. (I.e. help each other when these clues become too much :D)

Thanks to google & a website that kinda gave it away I know what the key is & where to go, yay! Not sure if it is running yet cos im on my phone & about to get laptop but should I tell everyone? All I'll say for now is: they're not coordinates like I thought, where would you see numbers seperated by dots? Remember we're talking internet here ;)

Hi everyone :)

I didn't bother making a thread since there already is one. :P However, I thought I should post these for anyone that's interested.

The 'front' of the card is probably the most important part.

However, the artwork on the reverse just looks so great too. xD

09-20-2013, 03:18 PM
Ya'll making me jealous now I'm not home to open my mail! :p

okay based on these images... could it be about a ship wreck? lol Also,about the numbers... if they're not co-ordinates maybe it's an IP address?

Plz, don't reveal yet if you know the answer (or hide it as spoiler)! It's fun to speculate and give random answers! :D


edit: I had to edit my post to hide my speculation answer. Pfff... Because I just tested my hypothesis and it's correct. LMAO!

How do you add the spoiler button on this site??

09-20-2013, 03:54 PM
So is this exclusive exactly to a select few really? Or just everyone in the UK on The Watch?

Well those trusting in the initial email sent by Mark.

Got my card through the post today and without wanting to spoil things for anyone who hasn't seen theirs yet, even though yes someone posted the images up; anyone who know's anything about pirate legend knows what ship it is and the writing describing it as such.

Appears we are "early" however...


Anyone who's interested in playing AC4 multiplayer when it arrives, chatting about The Watch and this new project, or generally wants AC fans on their friends list, feel free to add me on Xbox Live on:

Oh the shame... lmao How do you add the spoiler button on this site??edit: It's okay. I figured it out.Yer it took me a little while, think u have to be in advanced editing. It was pretty funny the fact that you kinda guessed in your post & inadvertently told everyone like me lol.I still have a few questions etc. for people though and a bit of discussion, so here goes.

1) Does anyone have any idea when the 'thing' (as I shall now call it lol) will be 'starting' (Preferably UK time)?

2) Secondly, was people kinda disappointed like me when they received a playing card, until they read the email? ;)

3) Anyone have an idea what it's going to be? I'm going to be even more gutted if it's just an exclusive trailer or something because I'm sure everyone else will find out about it quickly.

4) What do we think are the chances of some kind of in-game exclusive content? I got excited about this or a beta when I first got the email.

5) Anyone know how many people were chosen for this? Was it based on the watch rankings? Or playing other AC games etc? I'm pretty curious to know :P

EDIT:

6) Also, is the hour glass real as in accurately counting down or just 'for show'?Feel free to try and answer or speculate any of the above using the numbers, cheers :)

EDIT AGAIN: Do the initials shown on the table next to the hour glass refer to anything/anyone in particular, any reason they're there?

Actually, Mr Shade initially asked me to create a thread and he said if I could add images then that would be helpful and great. The only thing was that another member beat me to it, so I just posted them on this thread because I was asked to in the first place.

I got my card and worked it out pretty quickly. Possibly the dice both being at 6 will mean it'll reveal at 12? Not sure.

thewoodenspoon
09-20-2013, 04:16 PM
I like you're theory but when you say 12, do you mean midnight? If so I hope you're wrong cos that's a long wait :/

thewoodenspoon
09-20-2013, 04:19 PM
Oh I didn't know that! I knew what the sea monster was but I didn't realise the initials QAR, stand for "Queen Anne's revenge", thanks wikipedia. But shame on me for not knowing my history lol

thewoodenspoon
09-20-2013, 04:24 PM
If like me you didn't even know about the ship on the front of the card, you can view the spoiler in my previous post & search it online :)

thewoodenspoon
09-20-2013, 04:33 PM
I'm now beginning to think maybe & this would be pretty cool, we get the ship that's on the card & what the initials refer to, more info in spolier > Queen Anne's revenge, the ship in question was Blackbeard's flagship for less than a year but according to wiki, was "an effective tool in prize taking". So either (& If not either of these I could be gutted):

1) We could get the ship?

2) We could get to take part in one or more exclusive missions using the ship? :P

I dunno, maybe I'm talking rubbish lol

Mr_Shade
09-20-2013, 04:56 PM
The sharing of images etc is OK - it's already been posted on twitter etc anyway

As to being only a "select few" - the cards are limited.. But, more maybe given away..


But looks like anyone can join in the fun ;)

EllJim
09-20-2013, 04:58 PM
reply to wooden spoons first post:

Time:

I asked MR shade and he said he couldn't say. Dice are showing double 6's as someone pointed out so will keep checking.

2.) no was intrigued and figured out the "code" pretty quick so got to the "place"

3.) no clue

4.) maybe some content but given that Mr shade asked Lady to post pics that seems unlikely since now all can access "place" from that

5.) watch members with X in points I think when I spoke to Mark he said "senior members of the watch"

6.) hasn't moved all day

7.) you've found :)

rest lets wait and see. I think midnight on the +2 will be likely (10 pm GMT).

Aha, I get it have eager/keen people receive a mystery, gets them talking via twitter FB and here, spreads more hype/word about the game. Neat idea.

RazgriZ-FX
09-20-2013, 05:02 PM
That's cool, I wasn't having a knock or anything, just noticed people saying not to spoil things for those who've not yet had the chance to get home and check their post, possibly wanting to see it first with their own eyes.

Anyway @ thewoodenspoon...

1. No idea,

2. It was kind of cool getting a card, mysterious. I'd got all the emails before hand so knew a key was coming.

3. I'm grateful for anything but I do share in your curiosity and do hope it is something exclusive, or in game which leads onto,

4. Exactly what I was like when I first read the email from Mark, wondering whether it's a beta or in game content. However how it'd be exclusive now I'm unsure of because when word gets out and what we have here anyway is images of what we have, sharing it with the net =S

5. I too would like to know how were we chosen... rankings, being involved in The Watch?

6. Not sure if the hourglass is accurate, have it constantly on and refreshing every now and again, will check back later. Trying to work out what QAR could stand for, and also the double sixes?

Mr_Shade
09-20-2013, 05:04 PM
Marked thread as spoiler - just so no one can complain..


People are free to share theories etc anywhere, this thread was so the forum guys have a place to chat..

6. Not sure if the hourglass is accurate, have it constantly on and refreshing every now and again, will check back later. Trying to work out what QAR could stand for, and also the double sixes?

double sixes next to the timer would suggest to me 12 somewhere, and given the releases have been on GMT +2 I betting 10 tonight GMT.

QAR - see spoons post, but a google search can help you :)

Yeah, I'm not quite sure why everything was so secretive if they're then gonna give out 1 code which is a key for everyone? & We can now share that info wherever we like, doesn't feel very special or exclusive anymore :/ but still waiting and hoping for something good, like the ship in game ;)

thewoodenspoon
09-20-2013, 05:34 PM
Mr shade? Do you know everything there is to know about this project? Just that I don't know you lol Do you just take care of the forums or are you more involved with other ubisoft work? Err and one last thing is it possible to miss whatever is on the website if I go away for a while and come back later, or is it a limited time thing?

Locopells
09-20-2013, 05:34 PM
Got my card AND figured it out, before the email arrived this morning!

Just to throw a bit of info in for people - senior members of the Watch, but as Shade as hinted, they chose WHICH members of the Watch got the mysterious playing card in the post (which, frankly, I loved!).

Also, if you're going to Eurogamer, apparently it links to something there which, while non essential, links to the bigger picture of what 'it' is...

While everyone may know about it, I dunno if everyone will be able to get access to where the clue leads... I hope it ain't time sensitive, I've missed two Master of the Clock periods on the Watch, through not having net access at the right time!

thewoodenspoon
09-20-2013, 05:53 PM
Seeing as spoiler tabs just seem to fail on me & I just had to rapidly delete my post ;) All I'll say is well done Locopells, I went down the wrong lines until the email made me think again ;)

09-20-2013, 06:01 PM
What!? You're kidding me!! I missed out on Eurogamer tickets this year =( gutted, and now this is linked to it!? :'(Not sure if anyone has mentioned it, out and about right now so only have slow net on phone, but the first thing I figured about the card this morning I thought to share and probably people know it already but just in case, the whole squid arms on the card wrapped around the skull is the kraken. The words also point to what ship it is too. Could hold value at a later stage and again sorry, poor net and on phone so unfortunately can't add spoiler tags and don't want to forget this either but the ship I believe on the card is....The Flying DutchmanWith QAR also on the "place", which is related to the legendary captain, I wonder how its all linked and will unfold. Very exciting =)

tbh all you really need is in your hand..

you don't need anything extra... You guys shouldn't worry ;)

No one, is at a advantage.

I see some complaints about other people having access? - sharing images as "unfair" your cards you may have, are special.. Not everyone will get one, so you should consider that a great collectable..


so, let's not worry about who is better.. And let's crack on!

Online webgame for Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag & all AC Action Adventure games on XBOX360, PS3, Wii U, PC, PS4 and other next-gen consoles.

Now does this mean we get to "earn" or unlock extra in-game items (maybe different from everything we already get with the black chest?).... ??

We soon depart for the Caribbean, hell-bent on making our fortune. We seek treasure, trouble and notoriety! We set sail under the Black Flag – Join us!

Or is that just a spoiler on it's own for the game to come.......

Still trying to figure out the riddle Brostok posted earlier... dang i can't place it
answer in the spoiler maybe:
could it maybe be the Jackdaw? we know that he "takes" the ship. And ships are referred to as "her" as well. Also the 2nd part "let's jump on board, and cut them to pieces." could indicate the take over of the jackdaw from the former crew. I could be waayyyy of here and i hope so (would be to easy otherwise). but just my first short brain storm

We had until the end of the week to reply to the email and those that did got the Ace of Spades card in the post today.On the card (if you look back a few pages) is a ship on one side and then on the other it says "From Flight to Spite, where her wicked soul rests". Underneath that is a code which we have learned sends us to an internet site aka "the place" aka...http://www.ac4aceofspades.com/I'd imagine that is it for them sending out cards. They may give out some at Eurogamer??? Not confirmed! I do not know, read here that there maybe more but if there is I can only speculate they'd have some at their booth at Eurogamer.You won't miss out, you're in the right place, just watch this thread ;)


Also I posted earlier but looks like my phone was being silly.

I don't think at least anyone else has posted it, but for reference and probably people have picked up on it anyway, but the ship on the card I'm quite sure it's...

The Flying Dutchman

The first thing I noticed when I got the card this morning was due to the words on the card and also the fact the captain could...

control the Kraken

...as we see it's arms wrapped around the skull which also was a dead giveaway.

So that considered, as well as the QAR on "the place", as well as someone posting about the coding giving away that this will be a game? Makes me wonder whether this will be a means to unlock extra content for in game maybe... only time will tell.

On the other hand. IF QAR is indeed linked to this "puzzle" then maybe the ship is:
Blackbeards Queen Anne's Revenge. We already know that he's a key part in the game and that the short (QAR) for his ship is used here for this puzzle. So maybe the ship is the QAR on one side as a whole and on the other side destroyed by the kraken. All theorycrafting of course :)

Ah I missed that detail.

Indeed it is the QAR being ripped apart. Again on the flip side it's intact. I'd imagine however both ships are involved in the game. Play massive roles in pirate legend. Sure I read somewhere ages ago the Kraken may play a role in the seas of AC4. Hmmm exciting, and yes of course all theory, part of the fun ;P

site wont load now, either we are all bouncing off it or it's loading right now.

From what I've read those who have cards have different ones. I think we need to try and collate information methinks we will need to work together to solve this.

My card (and Ace of spades obviously)

/spoiler "from flight to spite, where her wicked soul rests " then the number series reverse has what I assume to be the QAR intact, however the flag is not blackbeards (I have a magnifier for documents and it looks to be Portuguese or Spanish

From flight to spite where her wicked soul rests..
From hight to spite..

Why the difference? Card says Flight, Site says Hight.. That's a clue somehow

From flight to spite - from where she ran(flight, fleeing, escaping) to where she regrets?(spite, guilt, regret)
That's kinda my take on that..

And for those who think the ship on the card is the Flying Dutchman.. I doubt it because the ship on the card bears what I think is a French flag. I'm not sure because the color shading doesn't match up for France either. France is red, white, blue but on the card its dark, lighter dark, lightest so the order is off. (Should be dark, lightest, lighter dark for France)

Never ever seen(might've missed it?) an AC reference to Willem van der Decken and most important of all the Flying Dutchman myth originated(so sank even before that) in the 17th century. AC4 takes place in the early 18th century.
(If any of this is wrong please correct me.)

If it would be the Flying Dutchman then it's the Ghost Ship Wrong Flag version of it. ;)

Also.. I don't have the card but for the people who do.. Try scanning it with a Smart scan or a Enigma scanner. If it's a key then you should be able to unlock it somehow?

We already sussed it was a typo.

I "thought" i.e. my opinion, that maybe a clue to it speaking about a ship and with the Kraken in there I thought it maybe the Flying Dutchman. However when I looked closely at it, the Kraken is tearing a ship a part so I doubt that it'd be the Flying Dutchman.

All speculation at the moment.

However it'd be cool if in the game we do have all the ships of pirate legend in there.

The picture of the card is on the first few pages. The code, i.e. "key" is on it and we've unearthed the website as such.

Davy Jones is also said to be captain of the Flying Dutchman and the Kraken and Davy Jones do have a relation so maybe the Flying Dutchman thing wasn't as far off as I thought.

Yeah the Davy Jones connection to The Flying Dutchman is the one I meant, with the whole ghost ship. My first impressions this morning was in the words on the card, possibly reflecting upon the story of Davy Jones and Calypso. However the "wicked" part could also point towards Blackbeard... but it's the part "From flight to spite" keeps me thinking the former.

Definitely, that'd be epic even just to see them in the distance.

I'm sure however I read months ago or even talked on a trailer from one of the dev dairies, that we maybe able to make Blackbeard and the QAR a part of your armada. Don't quote me on that though lol

From flight to spite her wicked soul rests

Using what I said in my first post and taking in that someone mentioned this could be about Juno..

Juno ran(flight)
Juno felt guilt(spite)
Juno's soul now rests there.

She felt guilt because of killing her lover. (After that experiment gone wrong)
She ran because of the same thing.
Then she hatched her little take over the world plan and programmed herself into the AI thing in the Grand Temple AKA 'her wicked soul rests'

Just some speculation..

That cannot be it, surely?

The words are already on the website, and it says "Flight" not "Hight", it's just caligraphy.

I'm obviously overlooking something and it's right under my nose. However whether it has connection to the card? Pfff, mind blown. Or whether its from the game... a reference from somewhere. Like "her wicked soul rests" being part of the answer, who is "she" and where does her soul rest.

Would it be in connection to the Queen Anne's Revenge or???

But if i take what it says ("Current Crew 3 crew member(s) required") then i'd believe/think that a ship has to be full with crew before it can participate in everything on the 30th.

Maybe MR Shade (think that was his name right?) can shed some light on this.

I think it said on the first page that you can only create one ship. Also, I don't think crew members can leave once they have joined a ship. At least for now, there aren't a lot of options.

I think you're right about that. I've joined a ship that is full and it says:

"You've found your ship. It sets sail 30.09.13 . You have sworn your allegiance to the good ship... and she is now fully manned with a murderous crew! ... is now ready to start plundering its way around the Caribbean, you'll be notified when your ship is free to leave port..."

Me - Silver - Lady - Wayne

We haven't voted yet. hehe... I am captain on Golden Falcon. But we'll create a new ship (unnamed yet). I don't mind who is the captain or not! (But ya'll need to let me design the flag! :p)

We could create a new one or me & pac could just join the Falcon, besides that's a great name haha

We are creating a new one because their ship is full. But in due time. We need to let Lady make a new email first.
