Re: The elitism of Puzzle Pirates
If you're going to unleash a battle navigator on the ocean, he really needs to have some training before he posts on the notice board. That may mean waiting for more of your crew to be online, or asking hearties if they don't mind helping out a new officer. Or in other words, having people on board who know that there will be rough patches, and are willing to sacrifice their time so that someone else can learn. At the very least

I agree with you there, but he insisted on doing it at that time nonetheless. He even wanted to do it at first with a larger ship, until I convinced him that he should begin with a sloop.

he should have had an explanation of the basics-- including how to job, when to sail, and how to battle navigate-- before the jobbing notice was posted.

In his case, he is friends in RL with two or three experienced members of the crew. I was assuming they had told him how to do these things already -- in fact, I had done part of this myself on a previous day.
