27 June - Season of the Flame - Win a Blockade Package! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I have received a missive from one of the brigand kings.

Azarbad the Great wrote: 
For just over a year, Azarbad the Great has sailed among you. Usually as rivals. Sometimes as enemies. Azarbad has fought you, testing your mettle against my own. Now, I have come to a conclusion regarding your abilities and must pass it along to you.

Your methods are slapdash. Your tactics lacking. You are disorganized and prone to wanton violence against yourselves. However, you have impressed the Emperor of the Flame. You have a certain enthusiasm that cannot be denied and tenacity that needs be applauded. This can be useful, if steered properly.

Azarbad is willing to provide guidance.

It has come to my attention that the frozen invader from the north has her sights set on a number of islands for some nefarious purpose. My concern is not that she will succeed, no. The All Consuming Flame cannot be extinguished. However, any drawn out affair is to my detriment. This is the Season of the Flame and the time when I can best bring the strength to bear against this cold menace.

However, my sailors, dedicated and willing to lay down their lives to the last, are not currently fit to hold back the tide. Soon, but not at the moment. Lacking the men and women to man a counter-attack against this north wind, I would have had to wait for a more opportune moment. But I have ships. I have gold. And I have you.

I shall set up some grand events where you may showcase your abilities. Come, fight, and prove your worth. Those who rise above the others shall be granted the resources to fight the foul frost fiend. Or another, as need be.

Join with the All Consuming Flame. And prevail eternally.


A series of event blockades shall be created on the following islands. The times listed are Pacific Daylight time, which you would see when using the '/info' command. All blockades will happen on Friday, 27 June.

Do I get this right?
Whoever wins the event blockade will be assisted (given a fleet and poe) to blockade another colonized island on the ocean?


edit:


  • Since Malachite is also given Blockade packages, which need to be used before the 31th of August, new island will have to open in order to make that possible? Is this actually a pre-announcement for new islands to be colonized?
  • Would the required fame on Malachite also be the fame required to blockade ANY island (renowned) or just the fame needed for a medium island?
  • Is any flag allowed to blockade and if they don't have the required fame only to receive a minor prize, (like only 3rd for example)
  • Prizes will "dissappear" after the 31th of August, meaning you can't use the ships anymore as a defence fleet, but you can untill then or are they a one-use-only?

Do we have to blockade on our home ocean? This looks like a great opportunity for cross-ocean blockading. Win the Midnight event, drop on an island in Hunter, for example.

Free boomy fun is free boomy fun, but 4 xebs and 5 bags isn't going to mount a credible offence against a Large island. However, a pre-delivered blockade fleet on a strange ocean, even one doomed to fail, could be most entertaining.

Yay a blockade package for a ocean that haven't had a island opening in over a year. Go Hunter!

I am praying this is a precursor to island openings.

This sounds awesome! This could possible set a president for BKs joining alliances with players :O I have soooo many questions:
*Can we have the fleet delivered where ever we want?
*Will we be able to drop on any island, or only uncolonized ones?
*Can we drop on OM islands?
*Will other flags be able to drop on the island too?
*The message talks about opposing a BK, does that mean that the defense of the island will be by a BK?


It would be awesome to take an island in a previously uninhabited arch! I can wait for this event!

Am I right in saying that the monarch of the flag which wins the event blockade receives the prizes and to keep them must use them to blockade another island?

Bia, Cronus's familiar races have a shotgun start time of noon on the 29th. Would it be possible to tweak the timing of the event blockades a smidge so that the two events don't conflict?

Many questions. I shall try to answer them all.

Regarding distribution of the prizes: Once the monarch declares the blockade, he or she shall have to contact me to receive the reimbursement. At that point, I shall have an alt with the prize vessels enter a chosen crew in the flag. The vessels will be at the chosen island.

Regarding prize usage: The prize will only be granted upon the declaration of a blockade and should be used there. If any ships and commodities remain, they may be used in defense or other attacks. However, ownership shall remain with the alt.

The prize must be used for any legal blockade. That includes any currently colonised island and any new islands that open between the event and August 31st. The prize-winning flag must have the necessary fame at the time of the chosen blockade (thus the requirement for the flag to drop the war chest before the prize is distributed). The prize must be used on the same ocean as the event blockade.

No other flags will be prevented from dropping in the chosen blockade.

You may use the prize to blockade any size island. If you take third but wish to blockade a large, we shall reimburse the value of an outpost blockade (25,000) and provide the ships. Conversely, if you win first but wish to blockade an outpost, we shall reimburse the value of the outpost blockade and provide the ships.

Regarding the timing: I had known of Cronus' event when I did my initial write-up, but it seems to have slipped my mind. While I can move the times for those oceans, the alternatives are not quite as optimal. However, I am willing to alter them if there is an open consensus.

  • Friday, 27 June, between Noon and 4pm, PDT
  • Sunday, 29 June, between 4pm and 8pm, PDT
  • Friday, 27 June, between 4pm and 8pm, PDT
  • Sunday, 29 June, between Noon and 4pm, PDT

    The first option keeps the benefit for being open to most time zones, and avoids the familiar events, but is also during the American work day. The second and third are mostly during the weekend for players, but are not quite as open to different time zones. The last is the current choice.

    The times for the remaining three oceans will be up to Castor, who shall oversee those directly.

    If I understand correctly, the "war chest" (PoE) is use-or-lose, i.e. use it by the deadline or else it's gone.

    What about the payloads (i.e. the shot and rum)? Will any "surplus" supplies disappear after the deadline?

    What about the ships themselves? I see where you say the ships will still be owned by the "alt", but how will that work? Will the ships always be unlocked (for Crew Use) and/or "Battle-Ready"?

    Thanks! :)

    All stock and ships that you get are to be used for a blockade.
    Whatever is left after that blockade can be used for the next one, wether it's a defensive blockade or on a another island doesn't matter. As long as the blockade follows the normal rules, you can use the stock and ships untill you drunk all rum, shot all cbs and sunk all ships in a blockade.



    I assumed the alt would be there from the moment you dropped untill the blockade was over, so I'm not reallmy sure wether they could be used for regular pillages, nor atlantis. Though I'm waiting for an official clarification on this matter.

    A similar time to the one of the first event blockade on Malachite would be a good time. Many flags were able to attend then.

    I'm guessing from the Malachite prize package that:

    a. The first island opening on Malachite will be before August 31.
    b. At least one medium will be opened on Malachite before August 31.

    Let's say someone wins and decides to drop on the new island opening. Can they use the xebecs that they won, but additionally they can use some more-traditional War Frigates? I mean- it seems as if it would be a disadvatage to win and have to use only those ships when other flags are going to bring war frigates.

    Or... will the new island opening only allow xebecs, baghlahs, and dhows? Some sort or response to these questions would be appreciated.

    The rules above only apply to the event blockades and the distribution of the prizes. Normal blockades are not affected in any way.

    That statement confuses me... in order to keep your prize don't you have to drop on an island as in a real blockade? So confused.

    If you win... you have to use your prize in an event blockade? Wha...


    Ok- I think I get it. If someone chooses to drop on an island you cover the cost of the war chest and deliver the won # of ships and stock. However, that brings me to another question, is it possible that a flag would drop and get the war chest refund, ahve the ships delivered, and then not use them at all- keeping them afterwards?

    Regarding prize usage: The prize will only be granted upon the declaration of a blockade and should be used there. If any ships and commodities remain, they may be used in defense or other attacks. However, ownership shall remain with the alt.

    The prize must be used for any legal blockade. That includes any currently colonised island and any new islands that open between the event and August 31st. The prize-winning flag must have the necessary fame at the time of the chosen blockade (thus the requirement for the flag to drop the war chest before the prize is distributed). The prize must be used on the same ocean as the event blockade.

    Will the alt puzzle occasionally? I don't carry slackers in my crew, no matter how many ships they supply ;) Oh, and if you want Officer, you better have good stats :P
