Re: Stats

I only did this because it allowed me to post usefully in two parley threads with the same research. Onward!

"Surprisingly large" and "Surprisingly small" refer to the other thread, which is linkied here. Data is "tabulated July 7, 2006."

After posting this I entirely expect to find a linky from Faulkston showing me where I could have gone to do no work and accomplish this. :)

Top 50 crews sorted by fame on Midnight, July 7, 2006, with Cabin People and Total Active Members listed, as well as % cabin people.

Re: Stats

Heh I remember when we were getting the fame for Jorvik, the next highest flag on the fame list had 22 people. Total.

Re: Stats

I'm curious. Does anyone who know who the largest/famousest crew to have no cabin people is?

Re: Stats

Interesting "study"... However the term "surprisingly" well... surprises me. A crew of 100+ mate at the top is not so surprising while a crew of 80 mates is "surprisingly" qualified as being small.

The only crew that may "validate" any claim that the fame system is odd at best is the Phoenicians with being in the top 10 with not even 40 mates in it.

However, I think there are many more factors to consider:
- activity per pirate: do a few mates puzzle until they drop (like it seems in the Phoenicians) or do many mates puzzle less but on a regular basis. At the end, the sum of the puzzling activity is the same.
- Type of pillaging: i know some crews sail lots of sloops with mostly crewmates on board (like mine) and others ferry WBs or WFs with jobbers for the most part.

So at the end, it's a matter of puzzling sum. I will stress more on what crew have been on the top for the longest, which is a sign of an active and dynamic crew in contrast to those who shout up to the top 5 and crash 1 week later because the fame only relies on a few hard core puzzlers.

Re: Stats

That just goes back to why fame is stupid. Re: my thread about how fame is stupid. And the debates that rage on about fame in general.

Note: Phoeys still nine after 7 days.
