Event Blockade Attendance Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

A problem with event blockades is that it's hard to know if there'll be an opponent there to make it worth showing up for. This can mean that people don't bother with them at all, even though they'd like it if an opponent would actually be there for it. I imagine that there are times where there's two or more flags who'd like to fight it out at an event blockade, but nobody tries turning up for it because they are all assuming nobody else will and they'll just end up being the only one there. I'd assume potential jobbers are thinking along similar lines.

So, I was wondering if it could work for there to be a thread in each ocean's parley to help co-ordinate event blockade attendance. People could announce their intention to be at a particular event blockade - or see if anyone else is also interested - and advertise which rounds they'll play, what kind of ship they'll load, how much they're willing to pay and perhaps offer some kind of forfeit if they happen to not show up.

Thoughts? Comments? Ecstatic approbation?

Pre-announced special events seem to work decently well. Part of the problem is dealing with setting up a pay offer if a royal isn't online.
