Re: Ode to Malachite
That's not what I said. Reasonable people can disagree about this issue, but the decision was made given the relative expected cost/difficulty of attaining drogeo given the circumstances vs defending zuyua. Taking drogeo would probably have taken 2-3 rounds at 3.5k after the first round followed by a flagsit, and it was sinking. Keeping zuyua was likely to be less difficult, as CD wasn't competing with a virid PvP for jobbers, WQ is a tough BK, and CD had control over sinkiness. Plus, drogeo may be Mala's best island at the moment, but if so then it's a big fish in a small cesspool. Which is worth more post-merge: a medium on mala, or an outpost right next to the inter-ocean that can produce cb's? And, more importantly, is the difference enough to overcome the discrepancy in expected cost/difficulty?
