Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

4k a seg as starting pay is the most pathetic thing I have ever seen. I don't care who it is against.

Having 4k a segment...lame. Having Boi make your intent...even more lame.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

Redistribution of wealth is a good thing. The fact that someone can afford 4k per seg for a large blockade says that too much PoE is concentrated in too few hands. I'm all for equalizing the papah.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

Well, if you want to have a good distribution of PoE, make an event, but we want to blockade, not to throw away PoE in this unfair way. Also having such payment only shows that they are trying t buy the island and not trying to have a fair competition for it.

I really find sad how people think they can have whatever they want just because they want it no matter what way.

But let see how all this goes. Let's blockade!

It isn't unfair by any means. Lame maybe, unfair...not at all. Considering it is Chuck Norris' first blockade as a flag though, it speaks wonders where they want things to go from here.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

Polie, over a year ago it was rumored that LOL had an 80mil+ bankroll; one would assume that your flag's current disposable income is at least in the triple (million) digits. How is it lame to challenge one of the (possibly) richest flags to a resource war? I remember Kneiss once posting something along the lines of "If Scrim is attacked we will do whatever is necessary to win;" how can you have it both ways? If it is acceptable for your flag to threaten an no-ceiling pay war for defense, why must there be a ceiling for an attack?

I do not think there is any real precedence setting to be worried about here. It isn't sustainable to enforce 20k per jobber rounds. If anything the ocean needs a few leveling blockades to redistribute PoE to individuals who care about blockades. People bitch incessantly about how Atlantis/Poker/etc are distracting from traditional aspects of the game. Chuck Norris and co. are just giving the jobbers what they want and deserve: more PoE. Of course this cannot happen every blockade but it does provide a great opportunity for a new flag to build a significant PoE base in one day. Twenty flaggies jobbing for five rounds, donating 100% nets 2mil for the flag in one day. That is a blockade right there. Redistribute the wealth and open the doors to new flags.

But this is Admiral, the one island that is worth owning. Polie, I don't have a problem with LoL, but you guys have made it pretty clear that you will crush any attack by using your large jobbing support. The next logical step is for people to start paying crazy amounts of money to even out jobbing. Now I assume you will just match this because LoL is quite wealthy, but don't complain when your style of play leads to inevitable conclusions.

Also, Vil is my new favorite poster :)

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

While the idea 4k a seg makes me walk a bit funny and makes it hard to sit down, there's always a lot of people talking smack about wars of attrition and sticking it to the man, blah blah blah. Well, it's interesting to see someone who looks prepared to really take it to that step. Not heartily endorsing or not here, I'm just saying I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out and what happens after. Love it or hate it, at least there's somebody out there willing to push boundaries.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

The sad truth of the matter is that paying 250-500 a jobber just means LoL get 500 jobbers to your 11. Anyone that wants Admiral has literally been put in a position of "be crushed or pay through the nose".

Didn't Daduk say that it should cost more than 300k and a cutter to defend Admiral? Wish granted Polie.

Frankly whatever happens, any flag willing to throw at least 15m in jobber pay is either going to end up buying an island that doesn't get attacked ever, or losing and being left to consider 15 mil and some ships gone in a day...

Fneh, I'm sure whoever's bankrolling it knows the finances.

But yeah... What happens with the island if/when you win? building any shoppes etc? Some of us care about other things than the amount of poe thrown, especially when LoL will be paying high too (no doubt)

What are you talking about here? It allmost sounds like you're suggesting that BB/PA are involved and/or part of Chuck Norris. Which has crossed my mind on more than one occasion.

And this is some sort of covert plan, to regain Admiral.

Quite the contrary. For a flag having their first blockade, the only chance at having a "fair competition" against LoL is for them to pay 4k/seg and you guys to pull all of your massive jobbing support from both Sage, Viridian and Hunter. Consider that even an experienced blockade flag which has been able to pull a fair number of jobbers on their own (PA) was significantly outjobbed by LoL at an Admiral blockade. When that happened, and PA upped pay to attempt to make the blockade more "fair" I remember posts saying that you guys had every right to keep the blockade the way it was because it was all about winning the island. Why, now, has it become about a "fair competition?"

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

Is this pay rate an attempt to keep third parties out of the blockade? Not many flags can match/outpay at that start rate. Will be interesting to watch.

As for the 250/seg against LoL, it is absurd to think that you will ever get even jobbing with their massive political ties. People just do not kade for that rate as much as they used to. Paying 4k a seg is a bit much, but hell, if you have the poe and want to attract the unaffiliated jobbing pool this is one way to go about it.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

I love how any alt every OBVIOUSLY is tied to PA. Really guys, there are lots of other people on Sage. Also, 1million PoE says that the forum alt you guys love you would hate if you knew who it was. (Vil keep hiding, it is your only chance!) =P

I DO NOT think outpaying to try and get even jobbing, or to just win at Admiral is necessarily bad at this point in time. I just think STARTING at 4k a seg sets a pretty ugly tone. But, Vil does make a good point and the distributing of PoE is a good thing. So there are pros and cons.

Also, as someone who DOES care about Admiral I do worry about what happens when someone like Wazzy or Boi gets their paws on it. Are we going to see a scuttle fest with loads of paving? Or are we going to see them take care of it?

The war of attrition should be amusing though. Welcome BTV to Sage and lets watch the pay wars go to Hunter level.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

Want to give away poe?, make something more suitable like 1K segment, it is so obvious that they want to make LoL waste their resources.

Want to have a fair blockade? do you politics correctly, don't try going away trying to buy people and islands with your "hard" earned PoE, or mess around large islands doing whatever you want with them just because you want to earn more PoE.

I don't know but something is fishy here, attacking just large islands with such crazy blockade pay. As I said before it just "island buying". Also I find a bit fishy that we have not really direct replies from royals and monarch from the flag if I AM NOT WORNG. I have not checked around.

But whatever happens you must be sure that LoL will be there defending.

Re: Ultimate Intent for Admiral

Meh I think you should build a flag and then go get beat up by PA. Just kidding but seriously if you have to pay war to get an island I disagree, maybe more time on the political front works. HE went against SOS in a fairly paid blockade and jobbing went thier way. So just my thoughts on that one and if you start up the pay wars all you do is destroy some flags that actually worked hard to get where they are. Meh I am finished.
