Just think.... Reply to this Post

What do you think you'd be like if you'd been spawned to a diferent ocean as a greenie or joined different crews...
would you still even play the game? Would you still be a greenie trying to figure out what the game is about?

I made this thread beacause i'm interested in what people would be like if something different had happened when they were a greenie :D

Example:

Cirumstances: I'd been spawned on Sage instead of Hunter.

I think I probably would had left the game if i'd been spawned on sage. The reason why is that I made a pirate on sage way back and went onto sage thinking i'd move oceans. 9/10 people I met didn't give a crap about me because I was just a greenie.

(Not hating on sage, just what I saw. From what i see on the forums there are lots of nice people on sage.)

It wouldn't have made a difference, I just liked the puzzles.

I originally spawned on sage (where I did meet some great people), but found my niche on Malachite - and I tried a few oceans out before finding a crew I was happy in. After my first experience with a crew, it took my captain ages to talk me into joining him - and it's still home 3 years later.

There wasn't much choice ocean-wise when I started. I chanced upon some good crews both on Azure and Midnight though. Don't know if I'd have found it so fun if I'd ended up in a big flag at the start.

I originally chose Midnight because I liked the color, and I preferred the option of sub over dub (at the time, the free portion was still just a limited time trial) because you get access to everything without always having to buy some kind of badge. Less hassle that way, to me.

Looking back, I think I made the best choice, at least as far as which sub ocean I ended up in, although I do wish we had the population levels of the dub oceans.

Had I spawned anywhere else than Azure I would have immediately submitted a bug report.

I spawned on Viridan about 5 years ago, although I have made many friends on just about every ocean (except midnight, which I've never played). Currently I think Mala is good for what I want out of Y!PP though.

I started out on Cobalt, I played there for like 1-2 years and absolutely sucked.

I took a hiatus, since the friend I started with quit.

After a while I cam back and started on Hunter, still having my Cobalt pirates. I've been in like 5 crews (4 if you don't count WaterFall since it's broke up like 2 weeks after I joined.) for last last 3ish year on Hunter.

I got lucky - spawned on Cobalt and was invited into an outstanding crew after my first job. I'm still in that crew.

Had I spawned on Midnight, I don't know as there would be that much difference. However, had I spawned on a doubloon ocean, I would not have stayed to play very long. I am a hardcore subscriptionist - having to "pay as you go" irritates me no end, doesn't allow me to budget forward very handily, and (because I like being able to do anything when I log on depending on how I feel that day) would have been considered a waste of my money.

So yeah - my spawned ocean would have been an all-or-nothing, and I just got lucky.

Spawned on Midnight - not really a surprise, it was the only ocean at the time after all. So I'm another one of those "If I'd spawned anywhere else I'd have put in a bug report" people

Depends on the colour of your ocean really.

I downloaded the game in August 2006, evaluated the different ocean types, and made an informed decision on Sage, partly just from the sound of the name. smile

If I had spawned on Viridian or Hunter? Yeah, I probably would have fallen in with a group of nice people, and stayed just as long, but it certainly would have been different - for one, I would not have ever met my now-ex-fiancee and she never would have come to visit me, I never would have gone to visit Spain, and my life would be quite a bit poorer for that. We remain the best of friends.

I spawned on Cobalt, moved to Viridian when I found the option to play on a free ocean.
