2014-06-18 - World Cup Special Events
For the duration of the football World Cup in Brazil, in addition to the normal penalties, when you shoot down a ship you will also be awarded a yellow or a red card. At the end of the tournament, the player with the highest point score will receive a unique ship, the SS Jules Rimet (Specs available on the help ships page), as the prize for being the most attacking player of the tournament. Points will be awarded as 2 points per yellow card and 10 points per red card.
The following kills will award the listed number of cards for a kill.
1 Yellow card - Destroy an NPC in a small ship (cargo capacity 500 units)
3 Yellow cards - Destroy a small Police ship or Military fighter (Police Type 1,2 or 3 and Heavy Fighter)
1 Red card - Destroy a Player Ship (of any size)
2 Red cards - Destroy a large Police ship (Police Type 4 or 5)
5 Red cards - Destroy a large Military Ship (Corvette or Escort Cruiser)
10 Red cards - Destroy an Alien Ship (If you can find one)
There will also be a similar event for the peace-loving traders and mission runners, but I've not finished coding that yet, so you'll have to wait a couple of days
