Intent to drop on [to be decided]

Lately (like so many times before), I have had a lot of people who lack blockade experience, but want to change that, talk to me about the difficulties they see. They want to find a target that will give a reasonable defense on their level, and they don't want tarting afterwards. Those are the times when I miss having islands (outpost islands, that is - I wrote this text before the Kirin/Laby blockades but obviously, larges are very unsuitable for training blockades), and being able to tell them, you can drop on us if you want that! (Even though most of the flags back then ended up dropping elsewhere, or not at all, I liked being able to offer them the option.)

Sure, there are flags that offer non-sinking outpost cades, training for new flags etc, and I'm not trying to talk down those initiatives. Not at all. But it doesn't help me.

To this end, I want to drop on an outpost. The project is entirely mine, but Q has given me go-ahead for it. If I end up winning it, it will be used as a playground to offer those people, who talk to me about wanting to get into blockading. Defense blockades at it will be non-sinking, and payraises kept small - we will never outpay the attacker by more than 50 PoE (ideally 25 PoE raises and only raise if down on jobbers, of course), and startpay should be 500. The defense team will have less-experienced Legacy pirates and allies as well as blockade regulars. I will of course also offer the attacking flags help and advice, and possibly help them with fleet, though I will not keep a complete fleet for them like I did at Dendrite. When we lose the island, if I still like the idea, I will drop on another one.

Likewise, we will never outpay by more than 50 in the attack blockade. If we lose, we lose, and I try elsewhere another week, unless the tarting that I know will come has killed my motivation by then.

I have not yet chosen a target. I will leave this thread open for a few days for owners of outposts to volunteer as a target, if they wish, and if so, state drop times that would suit them. (0f course, we will not necessarily respect the defender's choice, though, but try to find a compromise that suits both flags.) Island owners who absolutely not want a drop, are also free to state that. If noone has volunteered this week, I will pick a target and write it here, and give the defending flag a chance to suggest drop times, or place a veto if they absolutely don't want the drop. In the case of no volunteers, my drop will be postponed to another week. It will also be postponed if we end up too busy defending the islands we have, or if I fail to study enough this week.

Please note that is my own side-project, and the goal of it is enjoyment of the game, for me. It is not primarily an attempt to be the good guy, or to help the game. Nor is it an attempt to gain PR points, or anything of the like. Also note that the ideals/goals mentioned above do not apply to Legacy's plans and actions as a whole.

With your stellar record of helping new flags and pirates enter the blockading game, I'm sure this can only go famously.

Its a result of misconstrued forum tarting and lies that got legacy its badass name, especially by those people who felt like they had nothing better to do in life than make the game superpersonal. Legacy used to do all such events prior to its current state, many with Q's consent too.

I think its a grand idea avi! Lets hope we get a ton of flags who might put out their outposts. Plus when my ordeal is done I'll help with stock and whatever the new players might need!:D

Edit1: no need for tarting, I cut mine out:D

I like Avienda, none of what I say is directed to her in any possible way, just Legacy as a whole.

That being said, you're a pretty cool dude nag.

What ive learned from Chip is that new faces and antics similar to his are needed for some freshness to the blockade scene. While this is called for, it should also be noted that politics are meant for the skilled elite and cade board familiars. However, many wannabes, including new kids just gettin their feet wet, are overrunning VP much to chips horror.
These kids need to realize that politics and blockades arent the same. Newb blockaders should avoid coming to the forums and spamming us, so that when they win an island without posting island plans we can all tart at them for being noobs. Then go back to telling legacy they are failzorz at being newb friendly.
Ya?

Simply not true, many people made very good points. But that's old ground.

After 'attempting' to run a similair thing at Surtsey, were very happy for such an idea to come to Moab, i'll talk to Avienda in game.

Re: Intent to drop on [to be decided]

The reason it's Moab is because Whitehaze hates me and doesn't like the fact I have an island now.

My personal and flag's record of introducing new players and flags to the blockade game, as well as participating and honoring competitive blockades, stands on its own. Avienda and Legacy's (yes, this is a "personal" endeavor but is still subject to Legacy politics given that the island is under Legacy's control) record is equally representative; however, one (hint: former) record is actually stellar while the other is laughable to anyone besides fanboys.

Or, as Dahl said, blind leading the blind.

No, it's just because the government called and said you were making underage porn on the island. We have to get rid of it to protect you.

Re: Intent to drop on [to be decided]

After talking to Whitehaze and Elfeesh in game, I am no longer interested in dropping on Moab. I wrote a long explanation of why, then went PvP hunting, and a flotilla dropped, so... Not much to discuss.

Anyway, I'm once again on the hunt for a target outpost, ideally in a flag that can stay relaxed about things, and let it be up to us what staff we use, which of our navers are in need of training etc... And preferably flexible enough to keep it dramafree, even if the blockade would not go exactly the way we planned, because blockades are dynamic and if you feel the need to control them in detail over an outpost, then you're not the kind of flag I want to play with. If I get to pick and choose, that is.

Anyway... Still on the hunt! Post here if you volunteer, otherwise I'll pick one anyway!
