To prevent any unfair advantage for a blockading flag...

How about if a blockade has been declared anywhere on the ocean, Island Broadcasts are disabled until all pending blockades end.

Why anywhere? Some flags have multiple islands, or allies that own large populated islands. It'd still be prone to abuse if every island but the island being blockaded could have broadcasts.

As an utter novice at blockading-- how much of an advantage would this really give a flag? Yes, it would advertise the blockade. But then one of two things happens-- either the players are novices at the game, and follow the tell precisely... in which case, the flag gets noobs. Or they are experienced, hit the notice board, and job for either their favorite flag or for the one paying the most... in which case, it's just business as normal, except that a few extra people get involved. It becomes a bit bigger, and a bit more expensive.

When it comes to blockading, I think most flags would usually agree with "Bodies on ships > Skill of those bodies".

If you're able to spam a heavily populated island, and saw "Job for _________!!! They're paying 5,000 poe a round! Send _______ a tell!", I can almost guarantee you you'd get a 10-20 jobber advantage from that alone. Probably more.

But isn't that a bit similar to being allied to a big flag? (with possibly a lot of novice people) If that flag does a regular flag broadcast, then the novices will also most likely just follow your broadcast.

The only problem pointed out with broadcasting at the island where the blockade is happening, is that jobbers of the attacking flag will also hear the messages which could lead to unfairness. I still believe that still allowing broadcasts on other islands doesn't give that much extra to a flag owning (or being allied to a flag owning) a large populated island. You can counter it by tournaments and by spamming the Inn of those islands?
