Re: The elitism of Puzzle Pirates
Actually, she did, quite regularly. And here's the important part: I never had a bad experience jobbing for Naughty and Gneiss. Even back in my "Woohoo, I made distinguished!" days. It didn't make any difference who the officer running the trip was, it would have competent battle navigation, not excessive whistling, and a generally fun atmosphere.
I mean, if you distill your original post, it turns into:
And you seem to focus on the rudeness (or "elitism" as you're calling it) while completely bypassing the part about your navigator totally booching and ruining the day for your jobbers. We've been trying to hint politely that letting an unskilled officer job from the notice board is equally rude, and that return rudeness of your jobbers is predictable, even if it does show an inexcusable lack of civility.
No, we're not saying you can't use your ship. We're saying that the first couple trips, at the very least, should be with crew members and hearties who are willing to take a bit of time in the name of friendship and crew loyalty, so that the new guy can learn in a supporting environment, without having to worry about all the jobbers self-planking themselves.
