Re: Conference of the Monarch (Thoughts)
 
I don't understand; shouldn't a random sampling of an ocean's entire population show a distribution really close to the one detailed by LiztheGrey? That is, 50% of the sample ought to be able.

That is solely used to determine active pirates that count towards the scoring curve. In determining the average pirate, there's no reason why you should consider pirates that have puzzled once in the last 10 days instead of some other arbitrary time frame. With a longer sampling frame, you're weighting greenies that logged on once to try the game and neophyte/able alts equally with more dedicated pirates.
