with payouts from pillaging doubled or tripled and the price of rum & shot staying the same, would anybody like to defend an amount greater than 20% even ?

and isn't 13% less than 20%, making it the perfect choice?

I always thought 20% was still too high before the update, I try to keep it between 10-15% depending on my ever so fickle mood.

Never give Thalatta access to crew articles or island tax sliders.

Back in my day, normal was 25%. That's why I changed mine to like 23. Maybe next time I do another extravaganza pilly I'll lower my restock cut to 17 or whatever.

When was "back in your day"? The "normal" that I've always seen is 20%.

As far as I remember, back when lanty was really popular it wasn't unheard of to see it as high as 30%, and rare to see it below 20%.

Hmmm. I remember not jobbing for people that were set to anything over 20%, but I don't remember that being a common occurrence. It's probably poor recollection on my part.

2009-2013ish. Seeing it directly at 20% was seen but not as much as it is now. It was usually 25.

Also it just occurred to me that we should at least be grateful there's still people wanting to pillage. I just saw a pilly with restock rate at 30% sailing with a couple mates on it. Now 30% is high but with how small the population is on the ocean, I'd rather be on a ship sailing than not doing anything (unless I'm doing homework, pokering, in a meeting, or making a meal then that's an exception). But hey if mates want to sit around doing nothing at home because a restock rate is just a tad too high, that's on yer picky self. (I will be lowering my restock before my sub runs out, just FYI lol)
