Dear Argosy

At noon gametime today, someone from Argosy decided to drop on Acanthaster. I have never really had a problem with Argosy as a flag except of the way some of their royals look upon being blockaded, but, they are entitled to play the game in their way so I've never been one to bash them. However, I would like to express how utterly stupid this was.

You decided to drop at the same time of the Viridian Island Opening, meaning that due to the expected pay war, there will be no jobbers on Malachite, making it impossible to load any ships. And if there is any ships loaded and someone by chance, even tho I really don't see it happening, succeeds and kills off the BK it will be the lamest, and most poor opening of an Island marked in YPP history.

And my question is, why?

Re: Dear Argosy

To clarify, once the chest was dropped, our hand was forced on the timing.

Re: Dear Argosy

I have to LOL at this - it is the first time I am 100% innocent of ANY involvement in an action like this. That's right absolutely zero zip zilch.


I did agree with several parties to make sure to not drop proactively nor suggest any one should. I did not like this agreement but did commit to it. (For those out of the loop all 3 current contenders were aware of this)

I do believe there will indeed be a cade and some jobbers, in order to compete whatsoever and fill WBs or more than a few small ships on each side it will be necessary to match Viridian pay.

Four parties or more would certainly be interesting....

The problem is that Malachite's pay of 9999/seg is considered less than 5000/seg on Viridian, because of the Doubloon Exchange. And since Viridian is probably going to hit 9999/seg... yeah...

Re: Dear Argosy

Just to point out in FItB's intent post Emmett wrote

 
Assuming the island's schedule stays, the blockade will commence on Saturday, December 3rd at noon game time.


OOO decided that the island openers would be on the same weekend on all oceans.

Even on Mala - surely you don't expect an island opening to be contested on only 1 weekend.

oh Wait - I believe I did see some people assume that FIB would have the first island opening in 2 years as a cosy flagsit all to themselves.

Didn't they already get to design Drogeo? Oh yes and Celesta? Just saying...

Uh...

Whether its contested or not, what''s the point of doing it at the time where the fewest possible players are going to be around (i.e. many from both this and other oceans will be on viridian?)

No one is objecting to Argosy going for an island opener. They're objecting to doing it at the worst possible time they could have chosen.

Honestly I would not be surprised if no one takes the island this weekend given the timing.

If you go there you throw all morals out the window. It has more immature players than Malachite and frankly the people have a lower IQ. They smell and like to burp at the dinner table. This is where greenies are mean and mouth off to greeters and the blockade scene is now equal to Malachite's.

Other than that, Dwizzles does suck :)
