Re: Blockades of Attrition: Yes or No?
How much of a reward isn't what I'm getting at - but what *kind* of reward it is. There's a very important difference.
We don't know this, because it hasn't been tried. Besides, what kind of material rewards are you thinking of? There are already built up large islands that produce plenty in taxes and flag shoppe revenue, but there are all kinds of ways that islands could be tapped materially that aren't.
Also, I said strategic rewards - which could include material rewards, but could take all sorts of other forms - from live sinking blockade boards to enforce embargoes to commodity spawn control.
Try playing MP Civ on Pitboss with several players...that'll take a year (or more). :P
Anyway - they're specifically designed to be not just war but conquering games - and conquering isn't exactly ideal for an MMO, because then the game "ends"...but with the number of people and volatility involved, that doesn't happen. YPP *could* be a big huge game of Risk. It not only could work, too, it already does, and well: look at EVE.
That's really not what the SotG sounds like. I'm pretty sure the ToS already included an "at OOO's discretion" clause to begin with, too, if only for legal reasons.
