Re: Riddle me this.
 
If familiars were awarded more regularly for duty/crafting puzzle competitions, would this event have felt like such a slap in the face?


Yes, just a lighter slap in the face. (This is speaking as a genuine 100% Grade A capital L Lucker in the familiar owning category. I find that there's something poetically right about my situation, though--the raffled familiar I own is a serpent, the least popular familiar in the game.)

 
(I'm aware there are other factors. I'm just trying to get a feel for how big this aspect is.)


Here's my three PoE:

* Classic familiars (monkey, octopus, parrot) should be Serious Prizes won on merit.
* Fine contests are actually a great idea! They just need other prizes.
* Fine contests should be put on hiatus until it's possible to run Fine puzzle contests that CANNOT be played on human run ships. While being a captain should not be easy, captains should never face the threat of having OOO bribing their crew into sabotaging the ship.
