Edit - Intent to *NOT* Defend Endurance



Darkness blanketed the island of Endurance, an eerie wind blew across the shores. Governor Gillz was sitting in her office as the wind?s wail reached her ears. The distinctive howl would make most pirates shudder, but Gillz simply raised an eyebrow. That unearthly shriek could mean only one thing Barnabas the Pale and his legion of undead were heading their way. Standing from her desk, she moved quickly to the nearest balcony and tore the doors open.

From the balcony of House of Prayer, Gillz looked out over the ghostly fog rolling in around her island. "If it's war Barny wants.. it's war he will receive," she declared ringing the bells to call her mates!

Come one, come all to defend Endurance against Barnabas the Pale and his skellie army!

When: Saturday November 6, 2010 at noon pirate, jobbing will start approximately one hour prior.
Where: Endurance Island
Who: Blood and Roses, Jobbing Contact = Jobby
Pay: 500/segment

Re: Edit - Intent to *NOT* Defend Endurance

Due to TO's attack on VE and our limited man hours to defend islands this weekend as many of our flag have real world items which come before pixel islands we will not be defending either island this weekend.

I think I'm a mite bit confused here. How does TO's attack on VE - at a different time - suddenly make you unable to defend Endurance?

Sorry, but I had to ask because my lame-o-meter's needle went past red on that excuse.

Looks like an open invitation to take Gaea also.

I thought your request two weeks ago to delay the attack so you could prepare a defense meant that you would actually prepare a defense. My mistake.

Re: Edit - Intent to *NOT* Defend Endurance

No need to get snarky Nine.

Some people simply dont care about their pixels enough for it to interfere with their lives. People shifted plans around to be here for Endurance, and cannot be here for VE. Simples really isn't it?

If you wanted to have some "boomy fun" or whatever the hell you are calling it now this weekend you could have just showed up to Endurance like you seem to have been doing to other BK blockades and dropped on VE next weekend.

Re: Edit - Intent to *NOT* Defend Endurance

ehh.. not to defend Nine but as I understood things B&R had known about the TO attack for at least 2 weeks so they could get a defense together.

I totally understand that rl wins over pixles but this to me seems a bit like "FINE then we wont show at all - missy piggy offended style version 2.0!" I honestly would have thought that B&R would have gotten more jobbers than TO.. but thats just my opinion.. and uh even though Im now in TO I still just speak for myself!

PS good to atleast see you on forum Chris... <3

Sure, there's no problem with that. The problem arises when we're told to come back later because you're not ready yet - and then when we do, having it implied that we're ruining your fun to the point that you can't even participate in blockades that we have nothing to do with. Surely even you see the ridiculousness of saying we're responsible for you guys throwing in the towel at Endurance, especially when we already delayed the attack for you before.

Re: Edit - Intent to *NOT* Defend Endurance

Did you have to come back later?

No that was very nice of you.

Does B+R have to defend their island(s)?

No, not really.

Meh don't shoot me, I couldn't really give a crap either way.

Just feels a little weak, and probably frustrating/disappointing for a flag who's stated goal is to have more hot hot boomy action.

Ok, I think you're missing something, or I'm missing something.

The second post in the thread says that BOTH islands are going UNDEFENDED.

So, your comment makes it seems like you're still defending Endurance.

Which is it?

Because, if you're going to be defending Endurance and not playing at VE, that's great and understandable.

The problem that people are poking in the eye here is that it seems like you're not going to be defending ANY island, and that it seems someone in your flag is trying to lay the blame at the feet of TO.

Could someone clarify if B&R is actually defending Endurance then and just not VE?

Re: Edit - Intent to *NOT* Defend Endurance

This is my call, I've called the plug on the blockade because I realized why should I spend the weekend doing something I hate. Why should I to get a babysitter to watch my son so I can spend several hours being stressed to the point of physical sickness.

Lj is out of town, 2 of our drivers have had serious real life issues come up (death and sickness) and I am done. I pay for this game as a source of fun and relaxation and this is not fun or relaxing for me. Being the only one around this weekend, I have hit my personal breaking point for the game and there is no one in town to step in.

Yes the flag is taking a hit for my actions and I apologize to the flag for it. But it is pixels and the real life stress this has put me under is beyond reasonableness for a game. So I said No.

Well, I'd say that anyone in your flag who has a problem with it, can organize taking them back for when they can be around.

To echo what Wonks said: If you ever feel the itch to come and take it back from us, please do.

Gillz, thank you for clarifying after what appeared to be conflicting information was posted.

For what it's worth, I don't blame you for your decision and can comprehend the rationale behind it.

My condolences to those who are dealing with illness and death this weekend.
