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.


Not necessarily.

Liz's search grabs all recent pirates, online or not. A survey based on who's online at a moment is far more likely to grab people who play a few hours a day.

If people with higher rankings play more often than people with all-ables, you could reach a situation where 50% of all pirates are able but far less than 50% of the pirates online at any moment are able.
