Coerced Coexistence declares intent to do the impossible! (Aimuari island vs Barnabas^24)


Proudly Presents
Aimuari VIII


The Intent Video is, HERE! And it is official, CC will come out full force against barnabas^24 on February 16th.
_________________________


What:
The most powerful and massive brigand king blockade to date and one of the most intimate blockades hunter ocean has seen. (Read Below)

Where: Hunter ocean, Aimuari Island.

When: February 16th, Jobbing starts at 1:30 pm gametime.
Blockade goes live at 2:30 gametime (PLEASE TRY AND GET THERE EARLY).

JC:'s Helpcc, Sunkiss, Fixy, Luigiofsage.

Pay: 300/segment + sinks/Buoy's and did I mention a dunk tank?(TM)

Raffles: We will have an ongoing raffles where we will be giving away wrapped gifts, We don't know whats in them anymore So dont ask! All we know is we wrapped everything from archelon eggs to new black skulldaggers to sand-dollars in the boxes and they are for the jobbers!Who the hell would want to go to atlantis instead of here?


Live Streaming Broadcast! - That's right! We will be having the Blockade streamed live from the battle room of the Coerced Coexistence Blockade ventrilo Server. You will be able to hear it all AND see it all as we raise arms against the mighty brigand king force! All you have to do is go to this link the day of the blockade: http://www.justin.tv/horror

Contests: Don't miss seat riveting entertainment through justin.tv such as
"Who will win the fight to not go Ocean-side round 1, Dalnoth or Wazzy?"
"Guess how many Grand Frigs Barnabas Deports in the first turn of round one!"
"How long will Shyne and Justsilly's sloop survive on the board?"


_________________________
We would like to thank everyone in large part for showing your support to the cause these past few days. If not for the overwhelming positive response we got from parties across all oceans we wouldn't be able to put on the show for you all this weekend. All sides of hunter ocean have seemingly come together to try and put barnabas in a hole and we are going to do our damndest to make sure your efforts are not in vein. We ask everyone put politics aside for a week and just come have fun.

I think its really amazing, I have gotten no less than 40 tells a day asking me if we need navers/xo's/stock/help floating/jobber support. I have told them all the same thing. Naving/Xo'n are not going to be what wins this blockade. In order to give our navers/xo's a chance to do their job, we need to the PUZZLERS to show up big. If we dont get 500+ Jobbers this saturday things may get grim. So PLEASE tell your friends, and tell their friends and tell their friends and tell their friends to come puzzle for us. We are live streaming the blockade on a website so you can see the board and puzzle at the same time. It's the MAIN reason why im doing it.
We can't thank you enough for your support for making this the success we anticipate, we treat our jobbers well and I can assure you, you wont be disappointed spending your saturday night with.
I don't think i've ever been this excited to sink at least 30 ships (I predict sink count over 50 - This is known as the Dunk Tank)
_________________________
F.A.Q. Freqnuently Asked Questions

Q: How Significant is this attack? We have seen other large ship count blockades before, What makes this different?

A: This is significantly different because other brigand kings don't bring the sheer dominating power barnabas does. Its not uncommon at high power to see him have around 700 Jobbers worth of ships on the board at any given time. That is all Frigates, Grand mainly with War Frigates for Consistancy.
-
Q: I want to help, How do I help?

A: SPREAD THE WORD and Puzzle, Puzzle, Puzzle, Load 3 screens and bilge on all of them. I do 3 bilges during blockades. 3goods on duty report > 1 incred and you make more poes! We need 500+ Jobbers to compete with the force of this attack.
-
Q: What happens if the Brigand Kings win?

A: Aimuari's taxes will be at 100% until we re-attack the next week and try again. Currently taxes on Aimuari are at 0% leading up to the brigand king blockade and if we retain the island it will stay at their normal low rate of 20%
-
Q: Do you really think you can win?

A: Yes we do, we have a plan, we have the talent and we have the fleet. This is all greatly contingent on getting around 600 Jobbers. If jobbers show up big for us we like our chances.

We hope to see everyone of all political affiliation on any oceans show up to help us. If anyone has further questions for us, We can field them here. Thanks everyone and we love you! HAVE FUN THIS SATURDAY AND GET JOBBED
EARLY!

EDIT and APPEND:

If it wasn't extremely clear, CC is interested in running this as an event to try and do what I see as one of the most challenging things in game to date. We have come to the conclusion that it is not in the best interest of CC to defend the island, but want to anyway for fun.
As a gamer with a large scale history (9 years) of looking to push games boundaries and teamwork to their limit, this gives me a new challenge. However, CC will not jeopardize our allies interest so we can have fun. If a drop on any of our allies islands happens during this, we will let Aimuari go and shift to help them. In fact if any other blockades are declared during our window, I think we will shift to help whoever the defender is. We know our chances are slim to none if we have to compete with other blockades.
So please, If you need to drop on somebody this weekend don't do it in the window of 2:30 gametime to 7:30 gametime saturday or this will likely be called off.
Also if anyone decides that they need to interfere with our fun this weekend by taking war ships onto the board to shoot at us, We will pull our ships off the board and make sure the hundreds of jobbers know who did it and why.

Re: Coerced Coexistence declares intent to do the impossible! (Aimuari island vs Barnabas^24)

Not really sure why, but I'm really drawn to this blockade. I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun, what with the high payments, BK-related flag control+sinking bonuses, and the raffles. I'll be sure to be there!

Re: Coerced Coexistence declares intent to do the impossible! (Aimuari island vs Barnabas^24)

As I said in the other thread, EAC will be there jobbing for Coerced Coexistence and if any other help is required, just ask.

A Barney attack of this magnitude promises to be an awesome event. It's a chance for us all to put aside our political affiliations for a weekend and to work together, as an ocean, to help achieve the impossible.

I'll be proud to be a part of an ocean who can put aside political differences for a weekend for a united effort against Barney. Let's make it happen,

Thanks for the support everyone. If I'm starting to sound like a broken record, it's only because I know we don't stand a snowball's chance in hell without people putting aside political considerations as so many have done.

Re: Coerced Coexistence declares intent to do the impossible! (Aimuari island vs Barnabas^24)

May I possibly be the first to suggest a reboot about 2 hours before the blockade? The lag of those bots with all the lag ye are bound to get would make the blockade suck quite a bit methinks.

/e has been setting "Disallow Pets" on all our friggies. I don't know how much help that will be with the expected crush of lag but I reckon it will help some.

We'll also be instructing our XOs to be quick with the hook to anybody that is spamming.

Re: Coerced Coexistence declares intent to do the impossible! (Aimuari island vs Barnabas^24)

About the lag, wouldn't a periodic /clear help and maybe during the break before the 4th round people could open a new client. Maybe not as good as a reboot but I would think that would help. You could ask people that lagging for them to reboot and then they would be rejobbed.
