Puzzle Pirates blockade schedule for the weekend of August 2-3

Not sure why these innocent straw hats should attract the wrath of the Gods (Der Zorn der Götter). All we know is, they done dropped a couple war chests this weekend.

This weekend's blockade schedule is jam-packed with enough action for two weekends--no surprise there, after last weekend's blockades got canceled due to server issues beyond Three Rings's control. (Your subscriptions and badges, by the way, will last for an extra week to make up for the time during which the game was unavailable.) Looks like you'll have ample opportunity to make back those doubloons you might have spent on a subscription to Ice so you could be the first on your block to beta test the Kraken... or all the pieces of eight you'll spend on rowboat kits and lifeboats, which I hear are ridiculously expensive at the moment. In any case, the usual weekend PoE fountain is functional and its taps are turned fully to the on position, so let's get to it!

On Opal, Der Zorn der Götter is the flag that's everyone's hero, attacking no less than four islands currently held by Brigand Kings over the course of the day. Everyone's hero, that is, unless "everyone" is the flag Strawhats, whom they also appear to be attacking. Twice.

On Cerulean, the main attraction is the defense of Conglin against BK flag Jinx right at noon on Sunday. This may or may not serve as a distraction when The Art of War attacks Hell if I know about an hour and a half later.

On the Meridian Ocean, no less than three double-team attacks on islands held by Next Contestant will take place more or less around 3 p.m. today, giving the lie to the name of one of the attacking flags. I mean, It's Not Personal? It sure looks personal from here, mate...

And on Emerald... well, there's just a heck of a lot going on, all day and all of the night. Just scroll on down for the details, my friends, and keep your eyes open for any last-minute additions to the schedule.

Standard reminders: Schedule is given in Pirate Time, or U.S. Pacific. Player flags link to Yoweb information pages; Brigand King Flags link to Yppedia Brigand King pages. BK amassed power given in parenthetical numbers, like so: (14).
