Re: Cnossos Blockade - Now has nothing to do with Cookiemonstr
I didn't say a thing about whether that applies to RD. I said when I would consider a blockade griefing. You were the one who applied this to that case.
The social puzzle is a skill. I specified that skills counted. I'd imagine a lot of the ocean right now views his attacks on Cranberry as griefing: his ability to win the blockade or negotiate with other people to win the blockade was far from assured, yet he exploited a vulnerability in the game's mechanic (namely, that the defenders have no worthwhile option to prevent endless attacks from the same party, even if that party can't win) to force a capitulation. I'd not equate this to "skill," or even call it "right" or "wrong." It's more of a difference in philosophy. RD views such game design holes as there for his use, I don't, and I doubt the rest of the ocean does, either.
He can't bear all the responsibility- the system allows for this type of behaviour and it needs to be changed... but, he could buy himself some points with everyone else by not using the same tactics again, if he wanted to. Entirely up to him.
