Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

Wasn't around last night, but how did "Sloops not removed" work out? Do they sit at max, or just not take damage?

Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

They simply didnt sink...so you do your best to repair em while getting shot at some more by a dozen invincible sloops. It was chaos.

Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

Scup, 6 PM game time or Central/Mountain/Eastern/Pacific/GMT etc etc? My sloopy wants some action. She loves to ram other ships.

Ok, that came out a lot dirtier than intended, but I'm letting it stand.

Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

They'll all be 6pm game time (/info). I redid the one for tonight on the ocean so it's correct. It never occurred to me that the interface would be in local time, instead of game time, so my bad, but fixed.

Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

It was fun for those of us who haven't had blockade experiences. Plus we got that cool trophy with no risk of a gain or loss of an island and that such. Real cool. Good training.

Or see who can be the one to sink the GF (hey, it could happen!).

BTW, how is a "segment" different from a "round" in blockades?

Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

There are 5 segments in each round, so if you pay 100 poe/segment, it's the same as 500/round.

Also, congratulations to Imperial Coalition and United Warrior Empire! I'm feeling generous, so it's pigs for all the round winners! Sorry I missed the end of the blockade - the sleep moster caught me last night - catch me in game whenever for yer prize :)

Friday night is still on! Bring yer useless ships!

Grand Prize: Elephant!
Second Place Prize: Some abandoned swords and clothes maybe?

Re: Prolix - Your Event Blockade Capital!!!

Do I get a prize for going down in less than 15 minutes? I just threw myself in there like a cog into the works, rammed some random sloopies until I was about 3/4 damaged. Then, I was going to repair but the battered sloops pelted me with cb as revenge.

Ah, good times.

I love coffee and early morning event blockades! I haven't been able to join in any of these events yet, but it should be fun!

Yeesh, those are no fun. Its just ram fest. Blech. The Sloop/Cutter non-sinkin was good. I look forward to the useless ship one tomorrow. Should be fun.

Without Prolix I'd be utterly bored now a days. Heh.
