"[Player name] has placed a blockade on your Home City!"—Message when an enemy has researched Blockade
Blockade is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched at the Capitol by European civilizations or the Town Center once the Imperial Age is reached by Native American and Asian civilizations. Once researched, it prevents all enemy players from receiving Home City shipments for the rest of the game.
As with Spies, Blockade has a variable cost that depends on how many units the enemy has, but with no minimum or maximum limit.
