Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

but opening a new large in the garnet would
allow for a few SYs that could help build fleets for smaller flags
allow more of the map to be bought
it would allow for the garnet arch to be more "travel friendly" because you would have a place to stock up on rum and cannonballs that might be stocked at a reasonable cost unlike most of the arch

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

Yeah that's great and all...

But Viridian doesn't have the blockade activity to support the opening of a large. Don't give me that, "But look at the blockades we had last weekend!" How often are weekends like that going to happen? Hardly ever. Look at what happened with Hadrian. Few weeks of intense blockades, then it was just kicked to the curb for UWS and other flags to trash.

Really? There aren't enough 350k shipyards on Labby to satisfy that demand?

the island will have to be blockaded and for a few weeks flags will be fighting to stake their claim on it

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

You obviously missed the previous openings, once the Inn was up no one had interest on the island for a veryyyy long time; I'll guess this year will be 1-2 weekends of blockades tops assuming someone actually breaks appart and contests against Ksb which I doubt so it will be WoA vs BK and we won't see a blockade again on MP in a good year.

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

I already wrote this in Hunter parley, but I'll do it here too. A small flag is not going to win a large island, especially at an opening. The only way a small flag is going to get full control (as in, not an outpost) of a shipyard is if they buy one, and it looks like they already can at different islands.

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

Man, did this kid really argue pro opening with his major point being "we can build SY's on it"?

Yeah no, I could continue shooting holes in your arguement but shooting three legged deer is no sport for champions. You stick to trashing palaces and we can let the grown ups do the real decisions okay.

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

Opening MP would be nice to have the ability to port your ship and grab charts somewhere in lower SW Garnet, yeah sure that is great and all, but what most are concerned with is blockading. Basically what most have already said is that the island will almost never be contested.

Did you even read my post? Go read it again. Like I said, the same thing that happened with Hadrian will mostly likely happen with whatever island is opened. Just a few weeks of blockades and then nothing. How is a few weeks of blockades going to help Viridian? Before you answer, it isn't. Stop thinking short term and start thinking long term. If Viridian doesn't have enough blockade activity for the islands already opened, it's not going to have enough for another island, especially a large.

Like Roseh said, as soon as the inn is built, no one will care about the island apart from maybe to pave the crap out of it. That doesn't help anyone but the flag.

You throw your own argument against your point of view? I don't see a connection between no new island opening and more blockades. I however see at least 2 extra blockades for the inn or the sake of being ocean police.

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

Gee, 2 extra blockades because someone wants an inn. Yeah that's really going to help Viridian in the long run.

It's not about no island opening giving us more blockades, it's the fact that currently our island ownership turnover rate isn't that great because there aren't a lot of blockades. Having another large open just means another island which a flag will sit on and pave, that's not fun.

Re: Dragon's Nest Event Cade

And pave = more poe for some top tier flag or another, which equals tartfest, and should said flag have members in vp, they will dance in the flame. This will then encourage more flame, creating a nice strip of scorched earth in the middle.
This is where we burn the noobs who get in the way of the rise of the new Evil One and the Evil Ones opponents, the Resurrected SMA of Defiance against all that is evil in viridian.
And btw, viridian is so fricked up, it cant even beat itself. Always gotta have some bs from another ocean stickin their grubby paws in our affairs.
Cuz why use greenies when you can use alts and interoceanic superstars?
I mean, its just so duh!
