Re: Regarding sinking blockades
Sinking changes the dynamics of the board as it becomes less desirable for attackers to spam undermanned ships oceanside, and also discourages third parties whom generally inflate the PoE cost of a blockade. It also discourages the longevity of cades, which if you've been dropped on at an ungodly hour can reduce your time commitment. This compensates for attackers advantage to a small extent.

That's not to say that in all instances of a sinking blockade, it is not made so for for purposes of attrition, or even made sinking as a deterrent for future drops. However I'd disagree that making blockade sinking is a pure illustration of the warfare of attrition.
