Re: Cos we wanna! (Intent for Byrne)

I agree with xo's giving incentives for jobbers.

For instance if you take sweetiepiepi, she is a great naver and does attract good puzzling pirates because of this. However most ships I have been on with sweetie, carpers have recieved an extra 200 per segment for achiving good +, and often find on her ships even when damage is high, she is able to keep afloat.

Also, most ppl like to show of a little and like hitting those top spots etc incentives like announcing top ppl on reports and paying them extra, makes ppl work harder.

These and my other suggestions, makes the difference between an average xo and a great xo. I think a great XO can often be under appreciated.

Ok, but this means that you have to have foreknowledge that this is what XO's may offer. How does that solve the problem of attracting the casual players in the first place? Sure, that's one way to keep them for a bit longer, but if you can't even get them on the boat at all? Then what?
