I acually spent more money buying a decent alarm clock. Can I ask the Oms to refund it? Well, was a nice single round tho.

Re: Access Denied's Intent to Blockade Alkaid Island

Thanks everyone for showing up. The jobbers, the cade staff, everyone. I hope this was both fun and profitable for many of you.

Well done CC STD on the defense.

I raised pay to even up the jobbing. I only started raising pay from 1k when I saw that CC had twice as many jobbers as AD. I wanted an even jobbing blockade as this is more fun for both sides and where skill will prevail. Clearly, since STD/CC matched pay and refuse to let us catch up in jobbing, they have no intention for having a competitive blockade. And people wonder why Hunter has no blockades. Maybe since everyone decided to join the CC wagon and there's nobody else to blockade...?

Oh, I would have thought that an alternative blockade time would be welcome as asian/aussies get to participate at a more convienient time for them.

In another hand, your flag with a matched pay in the last quarter of the pre blockade time had almost equal numbers of jobbers as cc/std. Perhaps may be wé were outjobbing you in 10? WTF 10, thats hell a lot, we could overload a cutter and would be a hard mistake.

If you knew that we would keep matching, and if your intentions were a fair blockade, why keep raising after noticing that a "Match" would be predictable?

Really, and contesting when your outjobbed by 150 makes sense too :P?

Nice work on the politics, looks like i should have gotten more involved beforehand.

Oh well, Rome wasn't built in a day.

And this certainly is only the start of this battle.

Re: Access Denied's Intent to Blockade Alkaid Island

By the way, I got an awesome question to do.
What`s going to be the pay at Saiph? If it`s going to raise that much, better be a jobber :D

A good way to avoid a pay war is starting at 9999 segment. It hasn`t been used by anyone yet, but looks like effective.

Paying high is hardly shamefull when your outjobbed at all times.

Its not the ideal tactic. But understandable when your outjobbed that heavily and your opponent isent allowing you to evenjob.

So blaming it on the pay is one thing, but face the man in the mirror too...

Oh cut it out. Do you think we owe it to someone to dumb down our effort? That's utter nonsense, Dark and you know it.

Re: Access Denied's Intent to Blockade Alkaid Island

Raising pay with 40 minutes left until the start of the round is a bit extreme. There's plenty of time to make things even, and first see how things shape up before adjusting pay.

AD actually had more jobbers than STD about 10 minutes before the round, and it was within 10% at the start of the round. With the ocean-side choice advantage as an attacker, it was definitely fairly even on the board. If STD didn't want you to catch up, they wouldn't have kept it at 1700/seg to your 1800/seg, or 3900/seg to your 4000/seg.

The side that sinks first always loses jobbers, which is part of what caused the large difference at the end of round 1.

I never said that hankypanky, but you posted about them pulling out so i never said you should have let them evenjob......

I just said you can't complain about them pulling out either.

Pull out , regroup, drop again next week.

Re: Access Denied's Intent to Blockade Alkaid Island

Excuse me but i'll point something out and have the Jobber program log dumps to prove it, I can host them after this ends.


When AD started to raise pay past 1500/seg, they were only outjobbed by 20 people. It wasn't until pay got up to 3000/seg+ that the jobber deficit reached such drastic heights.

So pretty much, you set off a hand grenade that went off in your face.


20 jobbers is absolutely nothing as an attacker. Maybe learn a lesson from this week. Take your oceanside attacker advantage, and let them have their minuscule jobber advantage.

Then clearly you haven't been watching the board. I kept it at 1k when AD had 80 and CC had 140. Then I decided. That wasn't going to be to fun to be outjobbed that much. So I raised to 1.1k to try to even it up a bit. STD/CC kept matching up until 1.8k where they stopped at 1.7k. I was a bit hopeful since there was a bit of a pause so I thought "Hey, maybe they do want a fair blockade." But no, sadly I was wrong. So I thought. Maybe I can raise it a bit more to even up the jobbing at 4k when STD stopped at 3.9k. Eventually they matched when we had maybe 2 more jobbers than them?

So yeah, once you are outjobbed by 100 and the other side ain't interested in a fair cade, the sensible thing is to pull out.

Yes I would like to see this since everytime I check the numbers, you had an advantage of over 50.

Are you kidding me? You wanna take a look at who said they were running out of one flag to begin with? It was in Rebel Rouser's intent. If we didnt match that our jobbers would have been spread out.

You could apply the same exact logic to AD, Seriously you're tarting about something that YOUR Side did first. I had to scramble at the last minute to consolidate everyone so we weren't out organized. All the AD Blockade staff is the same as the RR blockade staff... So What are we tarting about? Maybe when RR/AD Aren't doing the same exact thing STD/CC are doing people might take your accusations with an ounce of sincerity other than just plain bitterness.

The amount of hypocrisy that came out in just 2 lines of text even for you is mind boggling.
