What is the #1 crew on Midnight and who is the Capt?

Just wondering cause I have never been on Midnight. Does the #1 crew change a bunch or have they been there for a while?

We tend to value crews by quality rather than by fame rankings.

Midnight crew fame lists can be found here.

There are a lot of quality crews with an excellent reputation.

Re: What is the #1 crew on Midnight and who is the Capt?

Every Midnighter should be able to post their own crew name here and feel like they're telling the truth (based on whatever qualities they think are worth ranking to get a #1 out of). If that's not the case, consider looking for another crew.

Note: Every Midnighter except my crewmates will be wrong, but that's another story ;)

Re: What is the #1 crew on Midnight and who is the Capt?

Sweetie's right, fame does not show who the *best* crew is. Both Don't ask to port and Klingon Warriors have been in the #1 spot for long stretches recently. (although, I must say those Datp mates are truly the best *winks*)

The best crew is one you have fun in, and one where you're friends with the mates in it. I think in another thread someone said the crew to join is the one whose members would be on your hearty list if they weren't all crewmates already--this is very true.

If you're looking for the best crew (for you), do some searching, job with the various crews, chat up their officers, and see which one fits you best. There are *many* great crews and flags on Midnight. Good luck finding one that suits you!

Yeah, these guys are pretty good.


They do lose out a bit in the Leifiness category though.

WILLEY'S COYOTIES is the #1 crew. At least in my mind.

Re: What is the #1 crew on Midnight and who is the Capt?

You're no captain. And I will NOT take what I said about Leif back. I think i'd weigh about 10 pounds if he was in my crew, i'd just be up-chucking all day long.

7*.20*34/31+(133+31)^7+15+2-2+1=3.19x10^15

percentage of day there is a pillage found very technically. Took the avg duration of battles over the last week and found the average of those (9 min and 49 sec) then found the average # of battles per day (21) so that makes us in battle on average 4 hrs and 45 min every day, or about 20% (which is low... our 2 main pillagers, me and hubby been packing to move, lol)

Since SO humor and SO bnav standing were kinda put together, i did them on a 7 point scale, 7 being ult, 0 being able. Yes, they all received Ultimate in humor because they make me pee my pants multiple times a day. Bnav wasn't as great... too many lazy booties that have yet to do much bnav since the stat came... sheesh.

The +1 at the end for special bonuses is because if you watch our crew chat 99% of the time you would probably think we are on crack.

Now, I would like to propose some additions to the formula. One is to take the final answer and divide it by 10 for every mate in crew that spends time at the forums, especially parley, lol. Also, divide by 10 again for wasting the time to be such a dork to even compute these silly numbers. With those additions our new CAI (Crew Awesomeness Index) is 3.19x10^13

Edit, one of my smart SO's told me we should take off for crew mates that frequently are muted by multiple officers, so I'm going to go ahead and divide by 10 4 times for 4 of those pesky ones that have managed not to be expeled yet.
New score= 3.19x10^9

:)

Re: What is the #1 crew on Midnight and who is the Capt?

#1 crew for each of us really depends on what you are looking from the game. Some like to play the parlor games, other are merchants then you have the hard core pillagers.

I am honored by the mates of my crew and the fun atmosphere they provide each time i loggon, so to me obviously the Warriors is the #1 crew in the ocean (not only in fame but as people also). Others will probably hate my crew and go somewher else, it's all a matter of opinion.
