Blockade Histories Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

To say the blockade histories for all oceans are a little out of date is an understatement. I'm more than willing to go through and bring them up to date, however I would obviously need the data to upload. Anyone know of any magical place where this has been collected?

Cheers

This has been discussed before and I provided some data, but I can't seem to find the thread.

So, since 2013, I've been scraping the yoweb island info and I can generate a list of ever time the flag owning island has changed. This isn't everything you want and contains things you don't want. I can't tell you about failed blockades. I can't tell you the scores. I can't tell you the BK strength. This list includes things like island transfers. This also notes when a flag changes its name, although the flag id number doesn't change, so you can filter them out.

island flag changes meridian 2017-05-28
island flag changes emerald 2017-05-28

I'm very much of the view that something is better than nothing! I'll add a note saying "records from XX date to YY date incomplete" or similar as well.

The YPPedia user/administrator Therobotdude used to keep the Blockade History articles up to date. He's disappeared for quite a while. :(

The last ones he did before suddenly stopping were Meridian Blockade History, Emerald Blockade History, and Cerulean Blockade History.

From what one can glean from the user's contributions, at here, he did some other edits before finally completely falling off the radar. :(




Anyway, enough about him.

I've been taking screenshots of Blockade scores almost every weekend, after the Cades are over. But there's definitely a loss of history before I started doing this. :(

For these lists, I added the day-of-week after the date so that island transfers are more obvious. Turns out, some interesting things happen on Fridays. That appears to be when OMs like to move islands around among OM flags.

Also, it appears that a flag disbanded on a Friday. When a flag that owns islands disbands, the island reverts to being "uncolonized" and no longer can be accessed via yoweb. Apparently, the OMs eventually shift the islands over to BKs.
