  • Port Blockade

    So my ports are currently being blocked by a much stronger player. He randomly messaged me and said he was going to block my ports forever then ignored me. Hes a good 10x stronger than me since I just started, so I have no idea what im supposed to do? I thought id just wait it out, but its been several days now, and obviously the game is unplayable like this. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  • If I were you, I would get another similar sized player/alliance to clear your port for you. What world is this btw?

    EDIT: I agree with the above suggestion too.


    If you're really in a pinch, delete your account and start over on another world or something. You said you haven't progressed too far although it is unfortunate to have to leave it behind.

  • This is a weird behavior for a strong player to waste his blockages on u for no reason.

    u may post a similar thread on ur own server and see if someone is ready to help .

    no didier u clear them by contacting me :D

    are you blocking his port :P
    btw this isnt weird because few player dont know about miracle and put a temple in their town and doesnt respond to the messages.
    and there are many other reasons.
  • exactly thats what im getting at Don .
    he may be leaching the miracle or not donating to the mines . or even using the town spot on the island may be a reason he wants u out .

    yeah didier . things will get more chaotic u just wait

    Yeah, it seems GF changes this every now and then. Personally I like my ships to stay simply because it reduces the annoying hassle of "I had no way of telling this player would go inactive and now my ships are scattered for 30 hours." Last I saw the ships would stay in the inactive town.

    30 hours?? is that a figure of speech or do your ships actually go missing for 30 hours if the blocked town goes inactive?

    I've had times where even with Poseidon, it takes over a day to reach the battlefield, hence why I chose 30 hours. In theory it could be as short as 4 hours 5 minutes (Paddlewheel Steamboat on the same island with Poseidon activated at the right time.)
