YPP Weekend Blockades, Mar 5: What if they threw a 'kade and no one came?
Sat 2016-03-05 12:58:06 (in context)

Happy Saturday! For your YPP blockading pleasure, we have... well, a few, anyway. Some notes of interest:

On the Meridian Ocean, in addition to competing with Knockout for control of Napi Peak and Nightshade, Imperial Coalition will be hosting a series of Event Blockades on Sunday morning. No idea whether they'll seek jobbers on the Notice Board or whether this is an exclusively inter-ally affair. But if they don't invite you to play, it's a good bet you can get in on the mid-day action between Chapter Three and Knockout over at Windward Vale.

On the Opal Ocean, there is the unusual circumstance of a blockade without a defender. Presumably Tumult-Insel has been left without player governance; Ursa Major seems willing to fill the gap.

Meanwhile, it's the first weekend in March, so we've got a brand new Seal o' Piracy to hunt! In honor of March Madness, you'll get your limited edition trophy by...

Participating in 5 different tournaments!

Good luck, have fun, earn PoEs! XOXOX
