Re: Server future, Opt-out PvP, Neutral Crews
Voting seems to have died down.

"A fresh start" has 35 votes. So we have at least 35 voters.

"Increased PvP focus" has 11 votes, "More sinking battles" has 10 votes.

11/35= 31.43% (if anyone didn't choose "A fresh start" this percentage goes downward)

If we view this as representative of the Ocean, then Obsidian has a somewhat higher-than-typical PvP contingent... but it's still a significant minority, being less than 1/3 of all of the voters.

Edit: Now it's 40/19/17. 5 more votes on Fresh Start, but 8 more votes on PvP and 7 more on Sinking battles. So we know that there's at least 43 voters (and a an uncharacteristic wave of PvP'ers).

If I were a suspicious person, I would suspect that someone's trying to game the results by getting people to upvote the PvP options and NOT vote on "Fresh Start." But we're all respectable pirates here, and nobody would do that, right? Surely they'd realize that such discrepancies are obvious and detectable. ;)

Edit 10 minutes later: Now 40/21/19. Two more voters who voted for PvP options while not voting for the "fresh start" option. It's now gone beyond "suspicious" to "obviously meta-gaming."

But even with that said, that means +5 total voters (minimum) which brings the total minimum voter count to 45. The PvP'ers are still less than half the total.
