[Blockade Intent] Orca/Gaea Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Now that the whole ocean knows, I guess it's time to post a blockade intent! Art of War intends to blockade both Orca Island and Gaea Island this Sunday.


(I am a greenie photo editer)

When? This Sunday (January 27th) at 730am pirate time.
Where? Orca Island and Gaea Island
Why? We wanted to go after both an outpost and a large island, and we wanted to try for islands that were fairly close to each other.
Pay? Pay will start at 500 PoE/seg but will increase as the cade progresses and as defenders raise pay.
Sinking or Non-sinking? It could be both sinking, 1, or none. Let's wait and find out how the defenders play it.

Jobbing contact will be Sundreamer.
Look for jobbing to begin on the NB 30-45 minutes before round 1 begins!

Best of luck to both Booching Blaggards and Otherworld, we hope for a lot of fun this Sunday!

Do you have any particular plans relating to the islands?

Edit to clarify: Building Shoppes? Working to Dust Shoppes? Attractions? Tax Rate?

Echoing Zac "What are your plans for the islands?" ...specifically concerning new attractions and taxes!

I've been following your post concerning Nu and your 100% "temporary" tax policy. The shops you intended to dust seem to be nowhere close to dusting, yet your policy continues. I own multiple shops and stalls on Gaea and am concerned.

Nu's tax rates are still very low at 100% due to the REALLY low population. So shops probably won't dust. Gaea, not sure about.

Alrighty let's tackle this! First things first - Jeweleen.

I have been working really hard on the Nu shoppes, and one of them is due to dust on the 30th (I believe). Another shoppe, in which all the managers/owner have not logged on for almost 2 years, is still operating, but I've been able to pull out over 180k from taxes and me running lots and lots of minerals there. Unless they REALLY put a lot of PoE in there, I should be close to accomplishing my goal. I will be continuing to run minerals there as quickly as I can, and as soon as they run out of PoE, taxes drop back down to 13%.

And also, there's no reason to be nervous about taxes. If you read about the Nu taxes, I give 100% of what I get at the palace back to anyone who asks. Fourteen and Samjones have both come to me, and I have no issue with it. I assure the taxes on Nu are not done for the 15k increase I make a week from it.

As for the other shops on Nu, about 6 of them are owned by the flag that was there before me, Fearless Tigers, and I get the impression (although they haven't said a word to me since the cade) that they do not intend to close any of their shoppes. So I will not pursue that if that's the case.


Now as for Gaea - The island is large enough and the shoppes seem active enough that there should be no reason to attempt to close any shoppes down. I'm not sure what the current tax rate is, but I plan to put it in the 20-25% whereabouts. I do not plan to build anything new.

I hope this answers everyone's questions, feel free to post more if you have any!

Even though I did agree something on Nu had to be done it is a little annoying to harass you. I dont mind that you are busy when I contact you but I mean poker? I know you send me a tell that you didnt forget about it. But when I checked later you where in a tourney and now you logged off lol. I dont know the excact time I waited but I think its 1 hr+.

Hi,

I see people asking above about attractions but no response yet. Gaea has an Explorers' Hall which is very good for vikings and IO's because the charts it generates only fall along two routes, Wrasse to Gaea and Gaea to Epsilon. So, if you buy charts you can start at Wrasse and go straight to Epsilon and hit them all without making any side trips along third or even fourth arches. Plus Gaea is not on an interarch like some other islands with Explorers' Halls, so none of the charts generated are ever terribly far away.
If you guys win Gaea are you going to keep the Explorers' Hall intact and keep enough poe in the coffers to make sure it doesn't go dark?

Zeina - Yes. When I said that I didn't plan on dusting anything, and that I didn't plan on building anything new, I meant to imply that, yes I will be keeping the Explorer's Hall.

Risky move I thought Zacthedragon was going to drop on your other island.

Congrats Art of War on winning Orca, sorry we could not give you a better fight but Orca was only worth so much to us.

I would like to thank all the jobbers that supported us even though our jobber pay was not as high. That shows me a lot. You guys rock and a big thank you to our Flag mates and crew for your hard work and continued support.

Sincerely,

Xolicks

Thanks everyone who came out to both Gaea and Orca in support of AoW! Thanks Xolicks for giving us a fight, as it would have been quite boring without you.

Why risky? I think it's fairer to tell ppl they have to expect a flag sit or rearange their cade plans instead of being silent until the window is over and no one can drop any more. We thought this more fun for everyone.

Admitting you wouldn't be around is prime targeting for Zacthedragon. I do agree it was nice of you to give the warning though ^^. I was talking about for Vernal Equinox not Orca.

I didn't really think about that and don't think that someone would want a proven reputation of wanting islands only without fighting for them.
