Re: Carmine Defense

Finnius is disorganized and all booched. Rather than concentrate his forces in one spot he's all spread out. It started by booching navigation and ending up way out by Olin's Brow. If he'd kept going they would have ended up on Sage ocean. Now he's got one-third of his fleet still stuck out by Olin's cause of his nav booch, one-third attacking Carmine cause they couldn't find Havoc, and one-third attacking Garden Cradle cause they lost a PvP. :P

Re: Carmine Defense

So is this going to be the state of Viridian blockading now that the big, mean bullies, Riddlemakers, aren't bothering to blockade?

Woohoo... it's going to be pathetic BK blockades and scuttle shields (that aren't even defended) from the smaller flags, while the larger flags sit on their islands and count taxes for the next couple of years?

Congratulations Viridian, you finally succeeded in actually killing the blockade game!

In defense of Tikao, she has been fairly active in the blockade scene given the size of her flag and her alliance of 1 flag.

I seriously don't believe the blockade situation in Viridian is as dire as your making out. Sure a terra every weekend would be nice, but it won't happen, and the blockade situation isn't 'dead' because its not happening

Probably because she was so hooked on what everyone else was doing that she felt the need to complain after being disappointed by what everyone else is doing, on a weekend where not much happened.

Seems like we need to up our game guys, Tikao isn't impressed.

Re: Carmine Defense

I think Whitehazed is right, this week was a bit slow due to two scuttles and low brigand king power, but other weekends have had some good blockades. And for what it's worth after big flags step away another always seems to take it's place.

Re: Carmine Defense

Actually, if you look back for several months you'll notice that unless RM has been involved (with a few exceptions) most of the rest of the Viridian blockades have been flagsits or one rounders of little note. I don't suspect there'll be much change in that... Why would anyone challenge Cai when he/she can greatly outpay, or are allied with them knowing that Cai will 3rd party in order to defend them. You think I'm wrong than prove it. Frankly, this kind of bull, where you all act as if RM is Voldamort and you must defeat them at all costs is stupid. I certainly hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

And didn't we have this discussion about people being allowed to have opinions regardless of whether they are currently blockading?

Dis, grow up and stop spouting crap that you get fed.

Re: Carmine Defense

I still believe your wrong. I would say the minority would be flag sits. Sure, not every cade is a large fought between two heavyweights, but it doesn't mean the scuttles over smaller islands, involving smaller pay, and fewer jobbers, are non-exsistent.

Not going to argue the cade scene is stronger then it used to be. But it is not 'that' dire.

Any ocean that can see multiple pvp cades per weekend isn't doing too bad in my opinion. Especially after spending time on other 'dire' oceans.

You're certainly entitled to believe I'm wrong... and I hope I am.

Um, Dis... don't get your point. And you've obviously missed mine.

Well, first, those two statements are not opposites, so it has nothing to do with making up my mind. It's true that not everyone likes to blockade. Just like some people don't like bilging or gunning or doing Atlantis. That's one of the positive things about PP is that if you don't like one aspect you're welcome to do other things.

Secondly, I don't think I've ever said before that blockading is dead... I think what I've always said is that if people are going to bitch about RM that they need to figure out why RM is successful and learn how to fight them toe to toe instead of relying on massive alliances or hiding behind flags. I just hope that by pretty much knocking RM out of the blockade game for now that you all haven't done exactly what RM has always said would happen. RM is not blameless in all this, they've certainly made some stupid moves that have earned them the ocean bully title, but a bully should make you rise to better things, not go find another bully to hide behind.

Frankly, and I've said it before, the biggest problem in the blockade game is pay. Why bother developing skills as a blockade team when you can just raise pay until you force the other flag off the board. And, Lux, you were one of the worst instigators of that method. It was certainly effective, but not good for the blockade game.

If you don't have ships you can't contend, if you don't have bnavvers you can't bnav the ships in, if you don't have jobbers, you can't influence buoys, if you can't influence buoys, you lose. You can't really say that pay is the "Biggest problem." They all have their part in making it a blockade.
