24-hour blockade

From YPPedia

Contents

The 24 hour blockades were a series of event blockades split across all oceans on the weekend of September 9-10, 2006, and the weekend of January 13-14 2007. The results of these blockades enabled certain flags to pick which islands would be next opened.

Series 1

Rules

On each ocean, a blockade on the resident event blockade island was declared on by the flag Ambrosia, such that the five blockades took place over a continuous 24 hour period one weekend. Ajax's flag (which varies per ocean) declared on just Ambrosia. Interested flags had to pay 25,000 PoE and declare war on the defender (and have the standard outpost-level fame) to compete. Both the defender and Ambrosia did not contend, and the defender did not declare war on any other contenders.

The aim, just as any other blockade, was to win as many rounds as possible. In the case of a tie, the number of points scored throughout 'all the rounds was taken into account.

Blockades were set to terminate after 4 rounds, but if a flag scored 3, not only did they win the first prize, but the blockade would terminate prematurely.

Prizes

On all oceans, winning teams would be awarded the following:

  • One war frigate
  • One war brig
  • One cutter
  • 600 units of (fine) rum
  • 600 units of large cannon balls
  • 600 units of medium cannon balls
  • 600 units of small cannon balls

Additionally, the team that finished in second place would win an extra frig, brig and cutter. First place finishers would get an extra 2 frigs, brigs, cutters, and get 900 units of each of the ship supplies.

On subscription oceans, the winning team could pick the next eligible island to be open. It had to be medium or outpost.

On doubloon oceans, the winning team got to pick an eligible large size island (or less) to open. Second place got to pick a medium or smaller, and third place got to choose an outpost to open.

NB: the winning flags did not win the islands involved - only get to pick what was next to open.

Islands picked had to be on this list
