Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

Man, doesn't it make you sad when you type a novel and some smart kid doesn't read it and makes himself look silly? ):

Kinda funny how the Legacy are supporters are saying, "WELL, IF I CAN OUTJOB AND OUTPAY, I WILL!" when Legacy punished PM for doing that. You're not very good fanboys.

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

 
Seriously, who came up with a "freindly" blockade???

The same Flag you're trying to defend.

 
A blockade starts with a declaration of WAR, not tiddly-winks.

You do acknowledge that that's just a mechanics thing, right? That if, given the chance, most people wouldn't?

 
If I were monarch of a blockading flag (and I was, several years ago now)

Several years ago, we had cars that didn't fly.

 
You can bet yer arse on a few things. If I can surprise you, I will. If I can outjob you, I will. If I can out pay you, I will. If I can hire, bribe, or kidnap the best staff, I will.

If you can kill your opponent's father to make them miss a cade, you will. If you can set their house on fire to cut their internet, you will. If I gave a crap, I'd laugh more.

 
If you're looking for a tea-party or fluffy bunnies and fuzzy kitties, I suggest ye look to hellokitty.com.

This is fluffier, fuzzier, and so much more adorable

You sound like someone who's as mean as people bullying others for lunch money. You sound like one of those guys I'd avoid in the street, because I'd be scared. In a word, you're menacing. Less impressive part, it's the internet.

 
And for God's sake, if yer gonna expect me to read a reply, don't write a novel.

People who have good insight need to write. (Second time I've declared myself as an Ancho supporter. Expecting hate ):)

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

Oh, I'm sorry. Didn't mean to imply I support Legacy in the least. On the contrary, I had hoped someone would take up the challenge but seems all ye care about is tarting.

Anch, thank you so much! Ye just made my day. At 45 years it's been quite a while since I was refered to as a smart kid, thank you for that! No, I didn't read your novel. I'm sure it was well written and full of outstanding points.

And to Rose, another ocean dear. They are out there, even if they are dying. :)

Actually, I'm one of the friendliest guys ye'll ever meet. I check in on mom and dad every day, take my kids to the park on the weekends and if I thought you were having a bad day, I'd be the guy on the street who'd go out of his way to at least try to cheer you up with a freindly smile and a "hello". This however is a game with a war element to it.

Nah, ye'll get no hate from me! And I wouldn't kill fathers, mothers or babies nor would I burn yer house down. If ye blockaded me in the game though I'd expect ye to come at me with everything ye've got and would be disappointed if ye held back.

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

Using "unexperienced [sic] staff" is a noble reason to blockade. Being willing to blockade for that reason only if you ensure the blockade will be a flagsit ahead of time, well......

Honestly you sound like your thinking we asked for a friendly because were omg super weak poar flag. They asked us to do a friendly, we can't make it. It happens.

 
There is a lesson here for smaller flags who wish to own an island. Save up yer poez, blockade an outpost, then when approached to defend simply state ye can't make it this week, try back another time! Don't worry about it, the rest of the ocean will have your back if you're ever actually dropped on.


I do not get what the hell you mean, did you actually read the rest? And do you have any knowledge of the political scene on this ocean? I won't even say blockade scene because there isn't one.

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

I like flagsits.

They don't hurt anyone.

And all the tarters who care about islands come out.

Of course what they ''really'' care about is making sure people act correctly.

God forbid diversity.

Oops. I mean, heavens forbid diversity.
I mean, powers that be.
Well, 'whatever it is you believe' forbid diversity.

Hmm. What a mouthful.

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

People who care about islands won't do anything, people who care about blockades want to...but don't have the means to.

There's a difference between caring about islands and caring about blockades.

Why is it that, all you people can do is sit and make comments on things you DO NOT know?
Make your damn assumptions.
Its unsurprising, that when even if the most BASIC, questions are posed to your absolutely redundant person, we can figure out you have NO knowledge of either Legacy's blockade organisation or island-stocking mechanism.
So basically we're supposed to wait to drop on people who know how to set reasonable prices on islands just so they can scuttle and, thus, destroy whatever commodities/structures WERE available on that island?If there were any reason to challenge IC/KO for reasonable island management, here it would be termed as "pigheadedness". How simple it would be to make that much more poe and set ridiculous prices and THEN wait for a challenge?

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

I'm sorry, but up until now, no one has complained about stock prices at the islands Legacy dropped on. So, where this idea of horrible stock prices came about, I don't know.

Also, seeing Legacy were at least told by Dilemma that there wouldn't be defense beforehand...you could've just waited.

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

Explain to me, without a novel, why flagsits are bad.

The islands aren't supposed to matter, so I guess it's about the fact that the defender got denied a blockade.

Except now they get to choose when they attack. Sounds better to me anyhow. Boohoo 1 week tax loss.

And it can't be about islandside and other such advantages, because its about the blockade and fun, not winning the blockade and the island.

So I mean, I'm confused. Were mad cuz Legacy scuttle shielded then intentionally went for flagsits?
Shame on them. They should soooo know better. Horrible people.
I dont feel like making it purple. But its purple.

Congrats on the island record; shame you can't say you actually blockaded to break it :).



Actually, they will have ockaded to break it. Whether the opponent showed up or not doesnt matter. They still had to blockade it to take it. Anymore brain busters?


No barnacle! Really? Damn.

I'm sure tho whos opinion I care about understood what I meant :).



Oh, I understood what you meant. Its just always funny to watch you put yourself up on this pedastool as if your better than the next person.

Re: Intent to juggle some outposts

There should be a way for a 3rd flag to come in and prevent a flag-sit from happening by fighting the attacker for the island. Maybe i'll go post in GD...

The blockade actually being a flagsit is irrelevant. If you physically aren't able to defend, then you shouldn't complain about losing your island. No one is debating that point (even Dilemma). The "tarters" in this thread are pointing out that, once again, Legacy claims to want friendly blockades where they can utilize their inhouse newbies. To achieve this end, y'all ask for a friendly and then attack when the opponent isn't available. How is that beneficial for your flag? It is only beneficial if your flag is in it merely to collect islands, which has been repeatedly stated by royals as not the goal. No one is saying Legacy is wrong in doing these drops, just that the drops epitomize Legacy's tendency to talk hard, be boring and avoid competition. Actively avoiding competition (in a video game's PvP arena, no less) is t art-made behavior.

No, just making a different point. You can disagree with the choice to drop all you want, but it happened, so now the options seem to be complain about it, or do something about it. I just hope someone will chose the fun option.

******* tells ye, "and bummer.. we wanted to doubledrop you, hopefully win one on the cades, and break the record before possibly losing islands in the later cades this weekend, and have fun at the same time... making next weekend.. not as attractive"


Not really much point blanking it out, but you know, rules and all that.

When looking at every situation through those eyes, yes, every action is justified. I do however think that this reasoning doesn't match the way Legacy was when I navved for them, or the way they are trying to appear to be.

I agree that at this current point the only thing you could do game-mechanic wise is to 3P them, but if you choose to give this as an answer, why did you bother keeping up the facade for these years?
