Malachite blockade history

From YPPedia
Revision as of 15:58, 18 September 2010 by Kamuflaro (talk | contribs) (added akhlyscade)

This is a brief history of blockades in the Malachite Ocean. Blockade winners are indicated in bold. All blockades without defenders (uncolonized) or involving a Brigand King are sinking. All blockades with a player defender and player contenders are non-sinking unless noted otherwise. All dates represent the day (in PST/PDT timezone) that the first round began. Only official contenders and defenders are listed. Contenders' allies are not listed, nor are unallied defenders.
