Conglin Island
Ahoy!

After reflection at the upper level of Babylon, we have decided that we do not want to hold Conglin Island. However, since event participation is lackluster, and rather expensive in terms of cost to participants, we will be scuttling the island to Admiral Finius. The reason we have chosen Finius is because he is the easiest Brigand King in terms of difficulty.

We want to encourage anyone* to blockade the island. If you want to inquire about securing Babylon's support in a blockade at Conglin please contact Fourteen.

Yours,

Majorjr

Well, there are currently three flotillas on the ocean, no one runs flotilla attacks anymore, and as a result, BKs keep attacking islands until some island falls. So, wouldn't it make more sense to put the Chthonic Horde (Barnabas) back on Conglin like it was before you knocked him off the island?

Re: Conglin Island
Theres "only" 2 flots left. The one off Chaparral was sent home a few days ago. I do not know when you last checked about who runs flots. But I know that Gunnerfreak, Waterspout and myself has been loading the last month+. Granted its tough to load at times but if we just give up and do not try then things defo won't happen.

This is not about having a BK sit and camp on an island so that specific BK do not spawn a flot.

Re: Conglin Island
you are correct that I am no longer even checking things very often and I missed both that the ocean is down to "only" two flotillas and that people are now running flotilla attacks. Last fall, I did quite frequently camp on the "voyages" tab for days on end looking for a flotilla attack. I also inquired on the forums about flotilla attacks. Both methods seemed to show that they weren't being done anymore.

If people are running flotilla attacks because they enjoy doing them, cool! If they have become choretillas, then not so cool.

I did a little data scraping after my post and much to my surprise, Kirin is currently the only island that is being held by a BK, the fewest in about a year.

I also created a list of islands held by flags with low fame, which i also a smaller list than I expected:
Aspiring        Adept Warriors       Harmattan Island
Aspiring Fearless Tigers Orca Island
Obscure Bathrobe Army Iris Island
Obscure The Insane Asylum Corona Reef
Obscure The Insane Asylum Tigerleaf Mountain
Rumored Elements of Fear Park Island
Rumored Elements of Fear Spectre Island
Rumored Public Enemies Eta Island
Rumored Raising Hull Cranberry Island

Tries to correct a flag on what Bk to scuttle to, won't even defend large island due to lack of activity. #OK

Re: Conglin Island
Thing is, we know we don't want Conglin. How would we ever know if anyone were to want to blockade any island?
