SEOUL, South Korea - June 23, 2011
To welcome new players and reward veterans, CJ E&M today launched a new tournament for their seafaring MMO Uncharted Waters Online™. Dubbed the Epic Sea Feud, this event is a massive battle that will introduce players to the PK (Player Kill) system. The Feud pits six nations against each other for three straight days of conquest and cannon-fire. Best of all, this promotion stacks with the recently-unveiled 200% bonus EXP event. With big prizes on the line and rewards for every player, now is a great time to dive into the Waters.
The Epic Sea Feud stars the 6 strongest nations as they sail headlong into battle. Spain, England, Venice, Netherlands, Portugal and France will all square off for a ferocious fight. Battles will rage for 3 days straight, with 3 hours of daily battle time allotted to time zones around the world. Winning nations will earn fame while gaining strategic control of allied ports and their nearby oceans. As an added incentive, key players who lead their team to victory will be rewarded with Court Rank. All participants, regardless of outcome, will complete the Epic Sea Feud Quest and receive both Ducat currency and Battle Fame.

Allied Port: Tunis Port

Uncharted Waters Online is known for its historical content and methodical, strategic gameplay. The new PK battle system speeds things up with aggressive attacks and hostile takeovers. Without disrupting the game’s balance, the new Sea Feud lets players discover a brand new way to enjoy Uncharted Waters Online.
The first Epic Sea Feud event saw strong player participation, but due to the restricted time schedule, players from some regions had difficulty meeting the schedule. Upon request of North American players, Netmarble adjusted the schedule to serve them better.
