Bounty from Ellipse!

Triggster is still unhappy that Ellipse exploited the forums to help in Ellipse's personal war, but let's not go back to whether this was right or wrong. But I have thought of my own fun (and profitable) event.



Place: Dragons Nest.
Who: Under the crew Memento Mori.
When: Just find Triggster online and send him a tell.
Date: On-going, from now until we get Ellipses PoE.
Registration: None.
Why?
1) Ellipse want to give away all there poe!
2) They want PvP as well!
3) To see if they actully give away 3k a time or back down. (Like they imposed the new 40% rule)
4) Viridian Parly is boring.

Rules: PvP the war brig 'HMS Daring' in the waters of DN. Win 3k every time ye defeat Shippster in a sea battle. Ye can engage as many times as ye want!

For the battle to count you have to post a screenshot at some point in SF and the opponent ship in the upper right corner must be visible. You have to post the screenshot in the thread here and send a PM to (Saintdeath).He (might) check the screenshot and the list of recent pvp battles. Then you try to send a lot of tells to saintdeath in-game to collect your prize. If he doesn't reply it's because he's lazy, snubbing you or offline.

Prize:

For every battle you win, you receive a PoE prize.

War brig 'HMS Daring' 3k.


Note again that this event will end if Ellipse remove the bounty.
Also, believe it or not, members of Ellipse cannot participate. AUMGZ!


I reserve the right to withdraw this at any time.

Re: Bounty from Ellipse!

If you want them to loose PoE, go to war with them and sink their ships to the point that its too expensive to replace. Don't "exploit the forums" so you can accomplish something that your flag is afraid to do directly.

1)We don't want war.

2) Isnt Ellipse's use of the forums exploitation as well, also using other crews to do their work?

3) We don't want war.

I'm very sorry if you've explained this already, but what is the reason you don't want war? I'm curious.

Re: Bounty from Ellipse!

I agree with Moler.

This whole thing is ridiculous.

RiddleMakers and Ellipse need to stop trying to get the entire ocean to fight their own vendetta.

It makes both flags look bad. Both flags for trying to drag the ocean into it, and both flags for "exploiting the forums". If you are upset that Ellipse "exploited the forums" then dont turn around and do the same thing.

If you two have issues, war. That's what war is for.

Having wars is not a flag goal. Some flags are made to be a safe haven as the flag doesn't go to war, we are one of them. Whilst others are made just to war dec anything that looks at them funny. We have had a war before with Requiem, which I guess left a sour taste in our mouths. We don't want them, nor do we need them. If ye want to war dec someone, find them. Yer not getting one here. Owning an island was a flag goal, we achieved that goal.

This isnt a RiddleMakers event. This is an event ran by me and me only.

Re: Bounty from Ellipse!

Riddlemakers don't want war.

They don't want it so badly, they are going to parade around in a grand frigate like a Jets player begging Jesus to make the end zone bigger.

I mean, duh, right? Nothing says self esteem like encouraging anal PVP rank drops.

I seen IC has sent you a war dec. Why havn't you sent it back?

Before ye start balabbering that this thread isnt about SX so and so. I said that this has nothing to do with the flag. I'm running it.

I guess thats ice hockey or somthing. Doesn't mean much to me. Although, when someone comes hiting you with a big hockey stick do ye turn and defend yerself or do ye sit there and take it?

It hardly hurts the PvP rank of Memento Mori when its sailors and a floating crew.

We would love to war, we have had the declaration up for quite a while now. But alas...Riddlemakers would rather not war and have fun...

You mean football?

I hardly consider "using an alt crew to have other flags attack you thereby winning 8k" defending yourself...


So I will say this again. Either declare war back, or stop complaining about "forum exploits", turning the ocean against ye and such.

It hardly matters. It's still a crew from the flag. When the post was written it included the whole flag.

Isnt this what parly is about?

It still isn't defending yourself, it is just floating a GF and being pvped. How will that defend you from the mighty wrath of us evil Ellipsoids.

Usually the people who complain in parley actually try and do something about it in game. So...war please? ktnxbai.

Re: Bounty from Ellipse!

We need a war, or blockade, or something....this is just so not right. Or maybe this is normal, and the days of 5 blockades a weekend was abnormal? I dunno.

I have to agree with Des on this one.It's been way too quiet on Viridian lately.A good war or a multi island blockade might liven things up a little bit.

What was the decent multi island blockade??Been so long I forgot =)

I think most of ye fail to understand I'm not playing the physical war. I'm playing the political war. Way more fun, its so easy to wind Ellipse's backs up.

As I was saying, this event is nothing more to do with RiddleMakers that it does with SX.
