Blockade Intent: Cormorant Island Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



This was our teaser and our hint. As you can tell we are going to be blockading Cormorant Island. However, as the picture shows, we are only going to be using "bad" ships. So, instead of using our usual fleet of War Brigs and Junks, we will be using a fleet of cutters, longships, merchant brigs, and merchant galleons.

Against: Super Awesomeness
Sinking: Maybe
Why: They haven't had some PvP fun in a long time
Pay: 1,500 PoE/segment
Time: 12:13 pm pirate time on Saturday October 24, 2015

There will be a Halloween inspired raffle as well! Prizes to be determined.

So, turn up for either side, and let's have some fun.

Cheers,

Major

Thank you to everyone who jobbed! It was a ton of fun to use some ships that never see some action. It cannot be done without jobbers, so thank you to all of you. Also, huge thanks to Fed and Vampoman for shooting us all up. Raffle results will be posted ASAP.

Also, keep your calendar clear, because Babylon is holding Cerulean hostage for a guaranteed 24 hours of blockading this Halloween weekend!

Cheers,

Major

Thanks for the kade mates, it was pretty fun. Especially the Grand Frig and Merchant Galleon portions. I was surprised at how effective they were! They may be impossible to manage damage on, but it sure does take a long time to finish them off.

I'm tempted to bring a grand frigate now into a real pvp kade, just to see what would happen.

Oh and MBs are lovely blockading ships too. Kind of less relevant in a game where dhows and junks exist, but they had an underutilized role prior to that.
