Oops Pow Surprise!!

Black Veil has declared a blockade on Sayers Rock, the blockade will commence in 4 days.

For those who are wondering, EAC has scuttled the BK to Sayers Rock in conjunction with my semi-retirement form the game. We will not be defending.

With the dramatic decline in player numbers, it's become impossible for me to do anything fun in my evenings (the dead hours on the ocean). The Game Design discussions, which had initially been promising with a discussion on providing extra swabbies on ships, have changed focus to things like the upcoming Trading Posts which will do nothing to address the problems the game is facing.

I see little hope for improvement to the game in the near future and am therefore stepping down from politics. A disillusioned person is not the right person to be leading such a great flag. EAC will continue with a revamped leadership team and I will be around as much as is needed to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Re: Oops Pow Surprise!!

Aye, the lack of numbers nowadays it depressing. I'm afraid it probably won't get any better. Best of luck to ye Duckling. Hopefully see ye when Heroes of Telara launches? :P

Good luck to the flag that drops on Sayers.

Re: Oops Pow Surprise!!

With the decline in players and the game become more and more boring for some, I must admit you found one hell of a way to boost that for the next months.

Have laying back!

And also a lot of courage for those who have the difficult task of succeeding you!

Re: Oops Pow Surprise!!

See you Ducky. I didn't know you that much but you were always amazing when we came in contact. Always willing to chart, always willing to help and listen.

On a side note --> Sayers, Aim, Alkaid and Pukru all given to BK's? Sounds like a fun month for cades.

Re: Oops Pow Surprise!!

Before I get into everything, I'm sure the #1 question is what's going to happen to our Islands. All three will be transferred to an alt flag and released for blockading with no CC defense in about 2 weeks. At this point, You can blockade them and CC will not defend.

That's what Dalnoth said. So not BKs ;)

Re: Oops Pow Surprise!!

Yay for uneducated flames.

If you knew Duckling at all, this has nothing to do with CC. Duckling (along with Northstar) has been on retirement mode for the past several months. She's tired of the game, and is going to become, in her words a "spades noob".

Semi-retirement during the holidays is nothing new. The news of CC going away and Duckling stepping down at the same time are more than a fluke.

Ducklings semi retirement aint exactly super fresh news, i can assure you it's not because CC is stepping down.

If you really want to be taken seriously without your absurd accusations, you should try and back them up with a war chest, but hey if you think you're actually accomplishing something by running your mouth, keep going with it.

As for EAC and Ducky, all of you gave me what I can proudly say was the best time period of my entire pirating career. I can only hope that you come around every so often to say hey. Fair winds Ducky, and good luck with whatever the future holds.

Exactly!!!

We had have inflag navs, XO's, JC's, BA's and LA's well pretty much everything.
We had help from CC; that we're very thankful for, but we had our own cadestaff two.
And the cooperation between the teams made sure we'd have a strong lineup whenever and wherever.
EAC is still a strong flag, don't count us out.

I'll also point out that they still have Saiph.

Re: Oops Pow Surprise!!

It's nothing new to have kids like Thejoker mouth off without A) knowing anyone involved well and B) knowing anything about running a top-tier flag. It's like a neighbor's yappy rat-dog: you learn to tune out the constant noise, though a bit of teasing can be vastly amusing from time to time.

I always kept a pellet gun close by for such occasions..idk it was quite satisfing hearing the little yelp as it ran back inside with its tale between its legs. I am sure CC would be happy to do something similar in this case as well if the yappity rat keeps pushing buttons.
