Ahoy!

A correction to the above statement - To better accommodate our last minute holiday shopping blockades are now closed for the weekend of December 21st in addition to December 28th. Merry Festivus, everyone!

A note on scuttles: Scuttles were briefly disabled as part of the blockade shutdown process. They are now again enabled for your scuttling pleasure.

Due to behavior in recent blockades, we are updating our policy to help defenders deal with mass drops from flags with no intention to blockade fairly.

http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Official:Policy#Blockades
 
If at the end of round one the attacking flag is not putting up sufficient fight, as determined by the Oceanmaster on duty, we will consider that as their flag's consent to end the blockade early.


Therefore in such cases, a petition to end the blockade after round one will only be required from the defender, the attacker's agreement will not be necessary.

A clarification of our policy has been made here.

http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Official:Policy#Blockades
 
If at any time the attacking flag is not putting up sufficient fight, as determined by the Oceanmaster on duty, we will consider that as their flag's consent to end the blockade early.


A blockade still has to run until the end of round one.

The intention of this point in policy is to prevent defenders from being required to continue to mount a defense when there is no significant attack on the board.
