I can't believe I watched close to five minutes of that...

I also cannot believe that I thought that was hilarious, and the lego man was superb. :)


I'm looking forward to a great kade.

Re: Wicked Peace defends Ilha da Aguia!

First off, thanks to all the pirates that came out to support WP today. We couldn't have contended as much as we have without you. Unfortunately, poe outranks skill in a lot of areas, and the costs of this series of blockades was just outrageous, so congrats to RD for buying their medium island, you've successfully won via the attrition thru paywar method of blockading.

I'd like to personally thank all the flags that came out in support of us today, allied and non-allied alike. We had great navvers on the board, but it was the great jobbers that made their jobs so easy through the first 2 rounds. So again thank you.

The customary thank you list of navvers: Dalnoth, Gunnermooch, Wooden, Tommers, Demoncowboy, Dingybeard, Mentos, Thawix, and our reserved navvers that waited so patiently for their chance to nav this blockade. Also thanks to all the great XOs (I know I'll miss a few of you since I only made it 2 rounds) Annabelle, Godoftheseas, Athens, Kevk (great first blockade mate you will make a truly great member of someone's cade team), Nahemah (you are truly one great ally) and as well as our JCs, Ladysheena, Shortntarty, and the ever wonderful Keight.

What's in Wicked Peace's future? Who knows. We still have a good size fleet, a great flag, and another island to care for. One thing's for sure is that you will see us on a blockade board again in the future, either as a contender or a troublemaker.

Once again, congrats Requited Desire for a well fought blockade/pay war. Enjoy your new island.

Dingybeard.

P.S. Kudos to Demoncowboy and Mentos for refusing to lay down and keeping the fight going even after we offically conceded. You guys are nuts.

Perhaps this was the blockade that Ilha missed when it opened.

If - by real 5 rounder- you mean a blockade where one side was convincingly leading until they ran out of poe and it dragged on for 2 rounds that were only contested by people willing to donate time, then yes. It really did go 5 rounds, although not a single round was close.

As for everyone enjoying it... thats debateable. I've refrained from posting anything cause the taste still lingers, but I'll write something soon. I got to find a way to word it so as to insult the most people possible.

Yeah it was a bad pay war. I guess it started since RD was so late in jobbing and so much behind in it too at first.
But I don't really get why pay wasn't just dropped a bit by both sides then during a round. That would have made things easier.
Sounds easy, and is kinda easy too.
So I think that eventually it was a blockade worth spending your time in, but that's just me.

Re: Wicked Peace defends Ilha da Aguia!

Typical.
Side A uses mostly navs and XO's not in their flag; not even allies.
Side B uses poe. Probably from an outside source; not their flag or an allie.

Kinda hard to drop pay when the other side is constantly raising pay. Besides, pay can't be lowered during a round.

Re: Wicked Peace defends Ilha da Aguia!

yeah, srry meant during a break in between rounds, there it can be.
They were behind in jobbing and at a certain point it was equal and then you guys ran behind in jobbers.
I don't know about this time, but personally I noticed that sometimes all I have to do is ask and talk to the person in charge.

Anyway I'm sure WP is not done yet, they have been around too long for that.

In your post you write all the time that the paywar from Requited Desires made Wicked Peace lose the blockade. With this post I will remember you that Wicked Peace started to raise the payment, Wicked Peace raised to 2150 poe/segment. Requited Desires replied only on your pay-raise.

Re: Wicked Peace defends Ilha da Aguia!

Wicked peace started out paying 400/segment. RD raised pay all the way to 2k/segment.

So, to summarize:

RD raised pay 1,600 poe/segment.
WP raised pay 150 poe/segment.

Both flags were paying equal till Wicked Peace raised to 2150 poe.
But it was a nice blockade were the best flag won and that's nothing to do with the payment if both flags were paying 2150 at the end.

Re: Wicked Peace defends Ilha da Aguia!

What happened at the end was different then what happened at the beginning.

I'm going to assume you were only around for round 3. What happened at the beginning was I made a vast and profound miscalculation that cost us the blockade.

WP put up their offer of 400/seg about 50 minutes prior to the blockade. We had jobbed roughly 30-40 jobbers before RD put their offer up. They started at 750, a 350 raise. Now here is where WP lost the blockade. Instead of keeping our pay even and letting them pull even in jobbers or pass us (which is what happened last week) I made the decision to match their pay and try and keep our jobbers. I could dance around the issue and say I felt I owed it to my jobbers, but that would be a lie. I wanted to keep the advantage WP had in other areas by keeping the poe element level.

This is what lost WP the blockade. RD was prepared to keeping upping pay, and they did so liberally. Finally in round 2 they raised to the point where they finally made up that 40 jobber gap and overtook us in round 3. By that time the pay was so high, WP didnt think it was logical to spend anymore on a built up medium.

In retrospect, I should have allowed them to pull even in jobbers, or made an agreement with them on some sort of jobber pay-to-jobber number cap. It would have allowed for a more even blockade through all the rounds.

My bad.

There is a new dynamic of blockade organization, planning, and execution and I simply have not adapted the that new way yet.

Actually, we matched every raise made by RD through out the blockade, the last and final raise, 4 minutes before start of round 3 was by us, true. What isn't true is that we instigated every pay raise. We even waited to match their previous raises to allow them to get some jobbers.

Is the reason we lost because we ran short of poe, yes. Did RD outnav/outjob or outplay us in other area other than pay? No, and that can be seen by the very fact they had to continually raise pay throughout the blockade.

So, Xanover, either you weren't there for the entire cade, or you think 2150 was the pay for a lot longer than it was. Could we have continued on with the blockade? Actually, yes, but going into huge debt to other flags or putting large amounts of money into this game isn't something I'm willing to do. So did RD win the blockade on poe alone? They were beaten on the board for 2 straight rounds, convincingly i might add. The flag ahead in rounds, needing only one more to go pulls out because of pay issues. So, RD, and their backers in BTV accomplished their goals and won the only way they know how.

 
Both flags were paying equal till Wicked Peace raised to 2150 poe.
But it was a nice blockade were the best flag won and that's nothing to do with the payment if both flags were paying 2150 at the end.


No, both flags were not paying equal. The pay had to get up that high somehow, if pay started at 400 for WP and 750 for RD. Are you the only person that doesn't get it that after WP only matched pay everytime RD raised pay until the final minutes of the blockade?
