Puzzle Pirates blockade schedule for the weekend of March 8-9

See also

The majority of the blockade action this weekend is happening on the Emerald Ocean. Everywhere else--well. One might begin to doubt your commitment to island motion, if one couldn't see the three big Brigand King attacks coming to Meridian next weekend. But let's leave next weekend for next weekend and talk about today's and Sunday's highlights instead.

Probably the biggest event of the weekend is Vargas the Mad's attack on Admiral tomorrow at noon. He's bringing a 12-strong fleet with him. That attack and today's attack by Gretchen Goldfang on Caravanserai come to you courtesy of the flag Snatched scuttling away their islands. Says Hitchhike (now of the recently formed flag Luv U Long Time),

Snatched are calling it a day due to the majority of the royals lacking the free time at this point in the year to invest into YPP.

Therefore Admiral and Caravanserai will be scuttled away this weekend and we wish the future owners the best of luck.

From this you can expect not to see Snatched defending. Want to save those islands from Brigand King rule, where the taxes are high and the edicts are unreasonable? Hustle up your flag and drop on in. As of now, no one is contesting Caravanserai, and the shop keepers are not amused.

On a lighter note, Soulsearcher says you should all job with Rebound to take Alkaid Island away from Admiral Finius, "because if we win we will fill the dock with puppies!"

Meanwhile, if you sail the Cerulean Ocean, mark your calendars for March 22, when "Blackstar will be blockading Olive regardless of who controls it at that time." If you don't like the idea of Azarbad the Great being the controller at that time, you might consider jobbing with Static Before the Storm, who aim to "shoot some eights into your pocket while we sink some BK shippies." But if you want to help Blackstar cross an item off their to-do list early, keep your eye on the blockade schedule, as Wampuscat suggests they might blockade Olive early. Like, today. They haven't thrown a war chest at it yet, but anything might yet happen.

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).
