Thanks to everyone that came out tonite, we peaked at 15 jobbers.

We went 7-0 tonight,

1st battle - junk - (brigands) no greedies - win
2nd battle - junk - (brigands) 6/13 greedies - win - buried treasure
3rd battle - War Brig - (brigands) 4/15 greedies - win
4th battle - War Brig - (brigands) 7/17 greedies - win - yeti
5th battle - War Brig - (barbs) 7/15 greedies - win
6th battle - Baghlah - (brigands) 6/10 greedies - win
7th battle - War Brig - (brigands) 4/14 greedies - win

Pillaged ended early cause silly me forgot about the hold and booty being merged so we had a full hold - lost most of the yeti chests.

Ended up with 19 lockers tonight (out of a possible 34)

The lockers contained 12 trinkets and PoE.

--

One thing that really bugged me with this run though...

There was one player who came to the pillage late, didn't actually participate in the battles (divy said 0 battles) -- and she got a trinket. Meanwhile two players who were there for the entire thing -- got nothing.

The divy should reward players who stay around. With a divy like that it also discourages players from jobbing people late (even for 1-2 more battles) as they can "steal" trinktes.

It's ice, so I don't really care too much, but it would sting if that happened on the main ocean.

i was there fer 1 battle and rightfully received no lavish locker since there were only 12 lockers to split among 16 pirates who participated

image links fer the divvy randomness:

this random divvy mechanics will make jobbers preferring not to job fer as long as they could.. its better to just keep hopping on different voyages and staying fer just 2-3 battles each

on another note.. i still have not seen any merchant expo being awarded despite it being "increased" while testing greedy brigands on ice

is it possible to change the merchant expo mechanics to make it similar to how BK expos are spawned? it doesnt matter if the merchant ship contains only cheap & bulky stuffs like hemps, sugar canes etc.. there are way better way to earn poes than to hunt fer merchant ships

keep the regular merchant ships the way they are fer those who like to attack them when they see them

but please do create a different merchant ships which spawns the same like BK expos (visible only to those who won the expo) with intangible loot fer trophy sake

i want merchant expos mainly bcos i'm an avid trophy collector
i have not seen a single merchant expo my entire pirate life since this announcement on spyglass http://blog.puzzlepirates.com/spyglass/entry/release_part_deux
