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

Good evening:

Every now and again, Cerulean suffers from the delusion that it needs a martyr and saviour. Sure, Babylon has been a flag in control of many islands, we cared for them, but we agree that we had far too many for a healthy balance on Cerulean. Yet, we have never been a flag to pretend to be anything that we are not, we want to govern certain islands because they mean something to us sentimentally. We love to blockade. We love to see activity.

However, as much as we love to see activity, a tenant of our flag policy is that we will stand up to, and repel hypocrisy at every instance. Tyranny is that instance. They have taken certain outposts to create their much touted Brigand King shield, a shield that, largely, appeals to their self serving interests of maintaining the islands they have acquired. We will always stand up and push back against bullies and thieves.

So, to summarise, expect Babylon at the following:

Where: Tyranny Island
Why: Why not?
Pay: 1,500 PoE/segment and up
Sinking: Yes provided they have the ships to spare
When: Sunday, February 4, 2018, 11:00 gametime

Cheers,

Majorjr

A shield to protect us personally from what? Think game mechanics mean that when there are no flotillas spawning, then a BK can't drop on any player owned island (unless skuttled).

This is nothing different to how Cerulean has been for a few years now, BK's owning islands so no flotillas would spawn - this is nothing new. So please stop saying Tyranny are doing something out of personal self-interest.

We actually waited to skuttle this week to see if a flotilla spawned on Thursday, pretty sure if we were hell-bent on looking after ourselves only we'd have done the skuttles Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks for the advance warning on the blockades though, pretty sure you've just made Santa Harrjm's Christmas come early, hopefully you'll turn up this time instead of constantly no showing (you know being a flag who like to repel hypocrisy and who love to blockade and all that).

Yeah, I know. You think it is a great idea to kick BKs off islands like Conglin and then not defeat the flotillas that spawn because of your actions only to have Conglin retaken by a BK after you got bored with it.

Thanks to you, Kirin no longer has any island attractions, but it does have a new shop that isn't even as productive as a small stall.

There is an amazing amount of hypocrisy to be a bully complaining about bullies and saying you hate hypocrisy.
