While I think the event is a great thing the timing is during active kade window.

That is some poor planing or just a false way to gain support. Look at what were doing, support us, which I would have, but this is ridiculous to put an event of such a nature with the possibility to be kaded this weekend and then the event is in prime kade window time the following weekend.

Would have been a great Friday night or Sunday event not during the active kade window. Seems intentional as a flag with the experience of BB would know this event isn't likely to happen.

When the truth comes out that you really used a mechanic to block part of the kade window. I have no issue with sharing your calling me out. Its really sad that the mechanic does exist and while just like skutleing the island is allowed its really a sad state of defense.

 
Instead of calling you out in the forums im sending you a pm.

Please educate yourself before making stupid accusations.

There are game mechanics that make it possible for a flag to set an event during a cade window but to do so the event must be scheduled 2 weeks in advance. No flag can drop a chest on the island during the set time.

For someone who spends as much time as you do correcting others on the forums i would think you would do the bare minimum research before posting such a shitty post.


You can guess for your self who sent it since I can't share it. but I have gotten tells too.

Just incase anyone has doubts about the event happening after reading this clowns enlightening post

Would like to make it clear that the event will 100% still be happening and we look forward to it : )


By the way, if we were wanting to shield the island from drops we could have BK scuttled the past 2 weekends but didn't. We could also scuttle shield next weekend coming if we wanted to.

The time is set for the weekend because I would actually like to watch the event that I organised and that my flag is giving away over 1 mill worth of ships at. It is set at that time because i am from Australia and as much as i love waking up at 4am for 95% of blockades i didn't think anyone would be so butt hurt if i set an event at a time that actually suits my side of the world for once.

So again, i really look forward to seeing a ton of baby ships clashing around for a couple of rounds and hope everyone has an enjoyable time xx

Not butt hurt at all you basically reduced the ability to kade the island by 50% on Sat the 17th.

The Generous gift of 1M worth the ships is nothing as you would have lost the equivalent in a kade, and well if you scuttle then you lose ships and pay so again it was a nice block.

The event is fantastic as my first post stated, and I enjoyed helping you win Magpie as I didn't like the Disney name's either. The timing is a poor choice could have been the same time Sunday and not been in the kade window. Its a nice move just sad the mechanic exist just like scuttling.

Its funny how many people know what your up to with the timing but afraid to say it here. I get the tells of encouragement for calling it out and the threats. They both are amusing but most of all I love the name calling.

That would have been Monday in Australia. You know, a weekday. Nice job empathizing with the people who consistently get screwed by the time difference.

I'm getting flashbacks to the early days of Malachite, but not in a good way. If they make a habit of this, it's bad. One time for the sake of an event (a real event, not just a regular event blockade that no one shows up for)? You're being melodramatic. Especially since no one dropped on them two weeks in a row, so the island clearly isn't in much demand at the moment...

You don't complain that blockades are only allowed on weekends or that blockades are closed for the holidays, but add one other day when you can't blockade a particular island and suddenly your right to blockade any time you please except all the times you can't is being violated. Boohoo.

Like I said Friday Game time would have worked too. Its up to the players to decide for me it seems like a way to block a kade.

I am not sure what or who this was directed at but I didn't like the shortening of the kade window and have posted so in this thread . I am Fine with a Thur-Mon Kade window that overlaps everyone weekends it would require flags to find people in those area's to cover/protect their islands.

As an Aussie, its refreshing having a blockade occur at a time that isn't entirely inconvenient to me.

When you consider it, it would be far wiser if BB was trying to blockades on the island, for the flag to block off a time where their leadership is unable to make it on, ensuring any blockade against them falls on a time when their organisation is at its peak. By putting a blockade at the best time for themselves, they are leaving themselves quite vulnerable at less convenient times.

With the 2 week notice requirement, it certainly gives enough notice for flags who wish to attack them to mobilise.

Also, they are giving smaller flags a chance to blockade without being overwhelmed straight away, maybe it will just go to the flag with the most ships and money, but there is a far better chance for smaller flags to win. The fact that it is on a weekend means that a small flag can do a weekend blockade, which is not something that always happens, so for all of the reasons listed, I feel that for me personally, its fine for event blockades to occur on weekends, as long as it is not abused (which the game itself prevents with the 2 week restriction).

I find it odd that you can possibly complain about the fact that BB is doing an event blockade because it could possibly block an actual blockade. As someone who is involved in the Kade scene, I don?t see this as an issue considering they planned it two whole weeks in advance giving any flag plenty of fair warning who plans on contesting Magpie. Not to mention there hasn?t been a drop in the past two weekends either. So now that they are organizing something to actually happen, someone wants to complain? Isn?t an event that is meant to encourage the WHOLE ocean to get involved better than another silent weekend or the same two flags going at it on the Kade board?

The Kade scene is already dying on this ocean as they have only opened up two islands. This actually gives smaller flags a chance to participate and win something everyone wants right now- a war frig. Why try and knock down something that is meant to help stop this game from dying off so quickly and give people something fun to do. It amazes me what people complain about sometimes. Just because there isn?t going to be 10k a seg chucked up on the NB people want to get butthurt. There will be no Kade windows to block when no one logs on to play anymore.

Edited to add I think this event is great idea btw and hope it goes well.

First off Hats off to you guys for the great CIS and AH alliance that left you with an island and them bleed of poe. I don't know if you missed the whole desire to see kades capped post but ya the kades scene has died. 2 flags both in the same faction have gained weeks on the building of Frigs. Reality is setting in every weekend that no kades happen. Giving a way a few Frigs or selling them for millions when you can crank them out won't even the playing field, but its a game of war. The politics are interesting and the ability to block an attack is in the mechanics, I don't have to like it but far from butt hurt. I do find the treating tells funny and the pm's calling me out as uninformed fun. I didn't know the event kade blocked the kade drop. In my opinion that was worse then I originally thought. It would be a good time for someone to drop on Logger as many smaller flags as you said will be participating in the event. It would be even more brilliant if BB took control of both islands while everyone is busy in the event kade. Can't wait to see if wee get kades next weekend even at 2k seg.

Magpie hasn't seen a blockade for the past two weekends. Given that the island is fully built up, I can't see anybody wanting to blockade it this upcoming weekend either.

Theres a thing called quotations :P
Well events blocking off possible times for someone to drop is bad, BKs will eventually drop anyway, haven't seen many dark side flags cade other than CIS.
Would be nice to see a more active cade scene, dunno when they'll open up more islands :/

Do you not get the point.. like seriously?

As one of the few flags on this ocean that has decided to drop a chest we had a whole 2 weeks warning if we suddenly felt inclined to take Magpie. We have no issue with them hosting this event and it's even something to do, in fact I'm happy to lend any smaller/newer flags some small ships if they wish to compete.

You also realise that if someone does drop on Logger whilst this is ongoing people are 95% more likely to show up at Logger to job for either the attacker or defender right?

Equally, I can see countless different Frigs showing up at multiple islands that are neither in BB or AH and were not supplied by BB or AH - there are 3 OM SY's pumping out frigs too.. there is no Frig monopoly that you so suggest.

And as for the AH and CIS alliance being for us to get an island and them being bled? I don't feel it warrants any form of valid response because it is such a stupid theory.

Do you believe the moon landing was fake? Is 2Pac still alive? Was JFK shot from the Grassy Knoll after all? Does the world actually have straight edges and is in fact flat?

I've peitioned for past 2-3 weeks for an order of a frig and they still say there out of stock so really, its only loggerhead/magpie pumping out frigs buddy.
On another point, OMs didn't make this fair with the WF problem after all.

I love names, just a reminder all are to be at least 14 years of age to play.

Shops do not magic product because it simply has orders. You should know this as a manager but if you don't i will try to explain.

A full Ship Yard can put out approximately one frig a day with full labor. The OM stalls have a major lack of Expert Labor and are not producing any where near max capacity. I know when my labor alts are in the shop time goes down, when I remove them the time goes to a long time.

3 Shipyards feeding 2 flags compared to 3 poorly run shipyards feeding the entire rest of the ocean does indeed leave a major difference in the number of frigs that the o Flags can get with out a premium price, basically funding those who they wish to attack.

I also would venture to guess some in the flags with islands have also ordered Ships from the OM's I know I would have.

One of my SYs has not built a single ship for our flag so that statement is incorrect. Bouquet of Brigs has only built Frigs (and now MGs) for other flags.

There is a current count posted in the SY which shows how many ships have been built for each faction in the news.

In fairness the prices they are offering for the goods are reasonable, the thing lacking is labor, I don't think they intended on players making alt armies and doing their entire shop solo. The wages they are paying are enough to make money and near an average to fair price, but people would rather work for more and they are just being out bid at the moment for labor. They pay 35/45/60


Their pay isn't out of line just people not giving them the Expert. But yes they could up their rates then people will complain they are stealing the labors so not sure they have a winnable situation here other then om magic labor which isn't really right either.

The way OM SY's work is you have to sell the stock in.. you don't just petition them to help you -.-

Jake.. you are also misinformed. A Shipyard with capped labour makes more than 1 frig a day however please do feel free to tell me how they work, I've never built a fleet before.

A full Ship Yard can put out approximately one frig a day with full labor . The OM stalls have a major lack of Expert Labor and are not producing any where near max capacity. I know when my labor alts are in the shop time goes down, when I remove them the time goes to a long time.


WF takes 1325 labor hours perWiki

A fully upgraded shop the larges the game has can pus through a max of 68 hours, There are 24 hours in a day 24*68= 1,632 Hours a day max (providing they have a perfect balance and the hours are all used which I have never personally seen in any shop or stall using more then one type of labor.
Per Wiki


So if you can put out a max 1 per day, a day being 24 hours. 8 in a week, again if every thing is perfect. Math still seems one a day is realistically all you can do but lets go for a month 30 days. hmm.. in 30 days you can push out 36.95 so we will count that as 37 because math. 37/30= 1.233333 aday

Seems like approximately 1 a day no matter how hard I try to get that up to more then one I can't the math won't work. Again this assumes perfection of balance in the SY Labor. Can you show me a screen shot of one day a player owned ship yard put out more or equal to 1,632 Hours? Did I mention the OM Ship yards are lacking Expert labor, I know cause I can suck up lots of it all my hours on multiple pirates all with deluxe badges they buy all the hours I can sell.

Say you make 9 a week, that = more than 1 frig a day on average.. not hard to work out.

Basic example from this week.. don't feel like digging further.

He told me it's 1 frig a day.. I pointed out it isn't which is what the whole argument is about. Can you are to enlighten me on how I'm being pedantic?
