RiddleMakers intent for a semi-normal weekend

RM will not be defending most islands against the 24h grief-fest this weekend for a few reasons.

1.) We don't believe in the "If you can't beat them, try to make them stay up for 36h" Mentality that seems to be the theme for this weekend. If you guys can only win that way, have at it.

2.) A lot of our navers are taking part in OCL Swordfighting and expect to go deep into the tournament which will likely run over into the first blockades. We aren't going to put them in a position where they feel like they are letting us down if they don't come.

3.) A lot of people in RM are adults who have to work for a living and have familys. We can't poopsock blockades for 24h anymore, well some of us could but it would really blow come monday when we have to get up and be contributing members of society.


Forum Event Question:


How many water bottles of urine would the average 18-20 y/o male fill up in a 24h span ?


Prize for the correct answer will be an Atlantean Helm and a bucket of urine (otherwise known as yellow dye).
The person who gets the correct answer first will win a helm colored with a chroma.

*Answer is pre-set. Chroma colored Helm chosen by Hunta.

Re: RiddleMakers intent for a semi-normal weekend

The average 18-20 year old male fills approximately 0 water bottles with urine in most 24 hour spans of time.

I can't speak for the rest of us and I haven't bothered to do any research, but I don't remember filling a single water bottle with [anyone's] urine during any of the 1096 applicable units of time.

Re: RiddleMakers intent for a semi-normal weekend

If RM wanted to defend at their own time could they not invite an ally/former ally to drop on the islands at the time of their choosing so that instead of defend 1 island every 3 or so hours for a whole day just defend 3/4 at the same time?

Or would this be against some blockade rule or unethical?

Re: RiddleMakers intent for a semi-normal weekend

Okay..

The idea was just floating around in my head that you could defend what hasn't already been dropped on in one go but if RM have other things then its ok. I'm sure we'll see some action in the weeks to come maybe.

Yeah, that's right. 125K for it. Atleast I had the balls and resources sitting around to be flexible enough to drop. Do you or anyone else wanna drop and make the flagsit more interesting? Feel free to, we'll be prepared none the less as if it's regular blockade. RM announcing a "no-defense at most of their islands" doesn't mean our fleet at Kirin will be 5 sloops, 3 wbs and a WF.

Re: RiddleMakers intent for a semi-normal weekend

Not quoting to save the pyramid but the post is obvious in where its directed.

Yep maybe if I had spent a lot of RL Money on the game my flag that is less than a month into its existence and starting pretty much from scratch could take on a flag that buys islands buy outpaying whilst outjobbing.

In terms of resources, congratulations, the Turncoat's of viridian will get the ocean they deserve hiding behind a strong flag until a stronger flag appears, before then complaining that they have no targets to blockade. In before 3 months time, when you get bored of island sitting and blockade them and they start crying on the forums.

Sadly I'm moving house tomorrow so I won't be around to enjoy the flag sit. Look on the brightside, in 6 months time when you've ''Huntered'' Viridian you can go to sage as well!

Yeah, I didn't deny it. A flagsit and its 125K for Kirin. Abit more if it isn't a flagsit. I don't believe everything I hear easily so we'll find out tomorrow.

Or if you had skills to raise funds.

Thanks. Haven't really seen a blockade happen without "resources" being involved, have you? A war frig costs 160K these days approximately..Even if you pay 0/seg you still need resources to have a fleet to blockade. Or wait, are you suggesting that we carry out the blockades on the blockade sim and post transfer threads?

Have fun moving houses. I don't see how that's gonna happen. RM has a sound fund-raising system. There are some good poker players, SFers and SMH runners in the flag to keep the competition interesting. As Hunta stated before, there will be alot more action in the coming weeks. RM is a tough flag that has been around for ages, tested by time. Don't underestimate your ocean with such a small sample.

Re: RiddleMakers intent for a semi-normal weekend

Skills to raise funds? Yep i've not got those oh damn. Theres a key word there, starting from SCRATCH meaning all funds raised in the early weeks goes to investing in infrastructure with which to build fleet stock etc and buy fleet.

Obviously when you were practically begging for my flag and I to join your side you must of discounted my lack of skills with which to raise poe :(

I mean, it must help to come to an ocean where everyone is ready to Rim you <Insert 90% of Viridian flag names here> and run round getting boats for you (Hi Ksb)

Yep, I know RM is a tough flag, I wasn't saying they were going to roll over and let you win but with your blockading style of outpay and outjob, i'd rather insert a rusty spork into my japseye than spend time resourcing up and blockading for 24 hours straight.
