Blockade

Post by Caelin »

With most game I see being played saw 'No Blockade' lead me to wonder why there is not some kind of counter for this?

Off the top of my head ideas:

Smuggled Shipment: Takes x3/4/5? as long time to arrive

Escorted Shipment:
Cost a low amount of coin to hire Warships and takes x2 longer to arrive

Break Blockade:
Hire Warships to break the blockade totally, cost large amount of coin at least equal to cost of Blockade.

I could see a counter for it, if it was an age 3 or 4 tech or achieved with naval supremacy, but since it is an age 5 tech meant to be a game ender, I dunno what the point would be.

Games where people can afford blockade they are either kicking the other players ass immensely or both players will have so much resource/of already recieved shipments to the point where it's useless..

I think at that point in the game shipments are obsolete, and blockade isn't enough of a problem to really bother countering. Your ideas are interesting, though.
Groovy.
