Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

Ok, so everyone is thinking what are those pirates over there at Pirates of the Keys thinking? ANOTHER Blockade?? Well yes we take the spirit of the game very seriously and we seriously like to have fun.
Part of the game is blockading. There are only so many pillages you can go on and only so many commodities to move before you start getting in a rut.
So we are here to break everyone out of that rut. Meke Island is a little out of the way rock but it has a fort and supplies bid tickets. We just don't want to see the fort stay darkened and we want to give the bidding back to the ocean.
So come out one and all job for whomever ye will ( preferably us)and lets have some fun. We will be paying some poe and having a raffle so come on out and have a little boomy time with ye mates.

Jobbing Contact is mylipstickk

Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

I am on this earth to cheer on Conchy and hope she manages to make any other members of her flag REMOTELY as cool as she is.

Two things: edit button, Profile link which gets you to signature. Then you're a forum PRO!

Can I drive a bote? Making use of the edit button, I won't actually be there for the blockade! But uh, good luck to bof sides, because contrary to stupid rumors, BSB does NOT really dislike Fandango. We dislike everyone. Equally.

So, Pirates of the Keys are the goat and NF is the belly? Or is NF the troll under the bridge who demands taxes? Or maybe NF is the goat, and Pirates of the Keys are a tin can soon to be digested.

Seriously, can I get a translator here?

Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

Loose is just another example of the man trying to hold down a flag that just wants a little piece of land.

Yep, Looseweed and the dingoes have become what they hated most. They are the establishment, and protecting that rock is the final proof needed.

Okay, that was tongue in cheek. Enjoy, sink some ships and give the shipyards something to do for a few days.

Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

Things I have learned about blockades half way through round 2:
  • Work out how your going to stock your ships before the blockade
  • Work out how your going to pay your jobers before the blockade

    Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

    At the end of Round 2, I'm reading the chat and the situation is just deterioriating. I know Varuna said this was a "spur of the moment thing" and that we should be "damn grateful" but a little more organization would have helped!

    Varuna shouts, "Okay listen. This was a spur of the moment type thing. The person who usually coordinates stock, which is me, was informed about this 2 days ago"
    Varuna shouts, "most of you have NO idea how hard this is"
    Varuna shouts, "so be damn grateful"

    That what your after?

    Yep, pretty much.

    And now at the beginning of Round 3, they pulled out because it's not fun. Oh well.

    Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

    On a lighter note, must say the token gesture of the intentional sinking of a Frig is to be commended...

    Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

    Heh, I've seen Fandango plan and execute blockades in an even shorter timespan. From what I remember, this blockade, and their attack on Turtle literally started planning and floating after the warchest was dropped.

    Hey, it is hard. I am usually informed months in advance.

    I have been at Cross Country camp in the mountains for the last couple weeks, i come home late thursday night and I get

    "hey, we're blockading."
    Not exactly my fault.

    Yah, more stock and more organization would have helped.

    We stopped blocking because
    1) We ran out of stock
    2) We weren't having fun.
    There is no point in playing a game if your not having fun. Our queen, Conchfritter, one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet, was harassed so much that she announced the end of the blockade and her departure when the block was finished. We didn't want to do this thing without her, so we stopped trying.

    This was a spur of the moment type thing. But hey, its a game. Like I said before, if it's not fun, it's not worth playing.

    And as for being "damn grateful".
    Grateful for a little extra game money, which was being done. Grateful for meeting a few new fun mates, and Grateful for having fun (debatable) in a game.

    Thanks to all the people who came out to help, and thanks for all of your time and support.

    PoTK thanks you, and has best wishes for everyone's future, even though PoTK might not have one at the moment.

    Fair Winds.

    Re: MEKE BLOCKADE

    As a person who's been to several blockades, Lip did a great job especially considering all the whiners! Honestly I've seen MUCH more poorly organized blockades.

    We all learned some things yes. But you know what PotK still deserves to be commended for all they did. It was great to be on the cutter sinking an NF war frig in round 2.

    Kudos to Lip and Conch and all those that helped. Don't let stupid idiots ruin it for you. That's what /mute is for!
