[Viridian] A Warning for all

Respectable pirates can ignore this warning. It's not for you.

For all you low down, scurvy ridden flea-bitten Officers, Senior Officers and Captains who leave ships at sea with people on them after a battle or two because you think it's the best way out of paying them - Wise Up and Pay Attention.

I'm keeping a list. All those people who I find out have done this rotten thing to people (and I find out about a lot of them) I'm coming for you. I WILL hunt you down. I WILL PvP your ships until you can barely move. I WILL take everything off them that I can. And I will ONLY stop when you cease to be the biggest barrelstoppers on the ocean and learn to PLAY FAIR to your pirates, Cabin people and Jobbers.

Pay them properly. Don't leave them stranded. All you're doing is making more work for the Ocean Masters who get called out to rescue them.

You. Have. Been. Warned.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

One more reason to find a flag large enough to sustain your needs, and then pillage with them or their friends, almost exclusively =(

Since we'll be flamed to kingdom come for starting a public list, might I make a suggestion? Might somebody maintain a private list of "supposed" infractions, along with "anecdotal evidence to support", and I say anecdotal since no unalterable proof could be supplied...and then have folks like us just sign up to be on the list of who sees?

I mean, like the skellie hunters thread. We post to be on the "list", provide our email addys to the "moderator" of the list, and whenever a new barrelstopper is added, we're emailed their supposed transgressions?

So far - those on the list are there because an OM has needed to be called. No other officers online in their crews at the time of the ships being stranded

Catch Phoenix in game on Viridian any time really.

And no, I'm not going to post a public list of names, that stays quite firmly attached to the side of my computer on the bit of paper I wrote it on.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

Forgive me, but this sounds vaugely like the TSA no fly list.

The difficulty with that list and likely this one too is that it is very difficult to find out if you are on the list, and additionaly difficult to get off the list.

If this is list is to have any sense of being a just and honorable thing it needs to have full accountability rather than just someone saying "I had a bad time with that person" or "the OIC left mid pillage".

Aside from that it may well become a way for people to claim to have a reason to harass and grief others - something that has been shown to be frowned upon otherwise.

Vigilantie squads rarely make the game more enjoyable for anyone aside from the vigialanties.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

I swear someone had a topic that listed people who planned to hunt these kinds of people down. I was one of those who plegded their alleigence to the cause. Can't find it though :P

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

Since it's been asked I shall answer.

So far - there is One crew on "The list". And they're there for multiple acts of abandoning jobbers at sea with no officer online and no way for the jobbers to get paid. They did it to me, they did it to a whole bunch of greenies, they did it to one of my crew mates - and most recently, they did it to some of their own flag mates.

If I could ever CATCH the Captain of that crew online I'd be willing to discuss it with them - I've left a message with the monarch of their flag for them to get in touch with me - or face PvP hell. Now it's up to them to respond. I'm noting that this particular crew is now in a different flag than the one they were with when they ditched on me personally, apparently their original Monarch didn't think much of the tactic either.

And no - I'm still not giving the name out.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

Well for a side note, I've been on a few ships like this.. the course of action i take is immediately petition an OM or even send them a tell of your situation. 9 times out of 10 they bring you to shore and split the booty...

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

I would hope that due care would be taken in compiling a list like this and that it only be in the realm of prven worthy pirates (Yes its a can of works to work out how a pirate proves themselves worthy but I digress)

I extreamly rarly lead a pillage simply because I happen to belong to a crew that is prodomently from a different timezone from myself means that I am regularly on as the only officer in my crew. Things happen (I have the sort of friends and family who randomly visit, and I'm not prepared to let my RL come second to my pirates, not to mention DC's)

If I run a pillage and for whatever reason I cant finish the trip for a completly valid reason and I'm the only officer on (There are times where I start the trip with several officers on but finish it with none) and my self/crew/flag got a bad rep for 1 error beyond my control, I wouldn't be happy.

I learnt this the hard way, as a new officer I led a pillage when we got a power blackout. Absolutly nothing I could do. I logged back on the next day to a stream of abuse from an extreamly unhappy player. After debating blackspoting (the tirade was outright offensive and blowing the situation out of all proportion) I let common sense prevale and offered to settle the score with him and throw in a little extra poe for the inconvenience to which he told me to scupper off and he was going to /complain me. No idea if he did ever follow through, althoug I'm assuming he didn't as I never heard about it from the ringers.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

Things happen, but you miss the point. This isn't a once or twice deal, this has happened quite a few times, and seems to be how the crew is run (Hey! Get more poe! Leave your jobbers stranded!).

Frankly, if you have a legitimate issue (i've had those before, some where I just leave game due to a RL emergency), and there are no other officers about, then you should inform the person giving you the spew of idiocy that if they dont' stop, they'll be blackspotted and complained, then tell teh OM on what happened.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

I could perhaps of worded that one better....

My concern is that the list only be avalible to those who would understand and not abuse it. A player could read into a list like that and see a name appear there once and make something of it. Much the same reason why /blackspot is not avalible to all players... simply because not all people know what they are doing.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

I'll repeat this since it seems to be needed.

The only way you make it onto my "list" is if you abandon ship on your jobbers more than 3 times. I am the only one with the list.

As I said, there's only one crew on it, and they've had multiple officers jump ship on their jobbers multiple times. I cannot get a response from their Captain (I've tried I managed to catch them ingame) and so they are now an official target.


Amusingly last time I went out to try and hit them my ship won blood. That time they abandoned a large ship full of jobbers. This is not on.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

There is another jobbing exploit which I have already /bugged to the devs. I will not describe it, due to not knowing how fast it can be fixed, so I don't want anyone to get ideas.

But for you folks who are using it, I'm keeping my own list. Cut it out.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

Just to further clarify for any future missunderstanding, I know that some of the confusion in this thread is happening due to the fact that there are 2 distinct topics here...

The first is the fact that starrarose has announced that she is keeping a list of people who she feels to be bad pillage leaders who in her opinion rip jobbers off and intends to PvP them. The list will not be be published, although it has been sugested she would be willing to accept help in doing this.

The second is the fact that there is also a game design discussion about a collective of players doing what starrarose is doing privetly, as first raised in the post by imwamphyr.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

And since there still appears to be some confusion on this topic.

Since you know that I'm doing this, and you've got at least 2 ways to PM me (I'm on the viridianocean.com forums as Phoenix) send me a PM if you think you might be on the list - since I send a /tell to the OiC of the ship I attack letting them know why I'm attacking them you could always explain it to me then as well.

Re: [Viridian] A Warning for all

Note dates on the first post of that thread to this one. If it's been fixed yay! But I've been offline totally with a rather sick little pirate so I've not been able to keep up with everything. Naturally I read the threads that I started first, as do a lot of people I guess. Thanks for pointing that one out to me, eventually I'll finish reading it
