Is Blood thicker than Water?

Ok,

Im in a geting stuff off my chest sort of mood, so its random but i needed to say it!

This is something for all the captains of the great crews to think about, reguardless of fag, political circle and all that jazz, there is a few thing we have to deal with on occasions which can be annoying. Im talking about dealing with Thieves and down right low lifes who dont care about people feelings!

I would say its a 99% chance that all captains have had to deal with Expelling a crew member for being abusive, disrespect full, ignorant, and even on susspicion of theft, these sort of reasons!! But what happens to these people???

Well this is my question, they say that people gather in different types of social groups, where people with the same interests share the same ideas, goals, ambitions, crews become a family comunity so to speak, so what happens to the low lifes you get rid off, those that escape the system, slip through the net, cos lets face it, they exsist, people who get around the rules and carry on to ruin the game. Where do they go!

Well the interesting thing I discovererd is this, because I use Quartermaster, anyone I deem to be one of these idiots, I place in my blacklist, and purely out of checking who a certain individual was now crewed with, came an almighty shock, about 10% of the crew were people on my black list, people who I believe to be of the "wrong sort" people who I DONT TRUST, people who would sell their own mother!!

But this got me thinking, has anyone else seen the same pattern I have seen, or is it a huge strange coincidence!!


Have a look, see what you find, you may be surprised!!!


Tart away!!!

/me wipes off Rude's chest
/me pets Rude on the head

There, there hunny, we all love you and these low lives normally hide on alts, so although QM may help you, people will continue to be scum <3

Side note, do some investigating as well, not everything is true that you hear

Example A: "Low life 1 starts rumor associating themselves with "low life 2" even though #2 has never spoken to them about said rumor, has nothing to do with the situation, and quite honestly just wants to hang out with their friends, low life 2 has rumors fly, and well we all know the rest. (True story, happened to someone in my crew that I love dearly, good thing I didnt listen to Low life 1)

Re: Is Blood thicker than Water?

Its a know fact that in all online games have a small part who just want to ruin the game for everyone and we just have to /complain them then, just forget about them and don't let them get us down.

Re: Is Blood thicker than Water?

So, there's a crew out there that's at least 10% barrelstoppers? Well, then you know who you shouldn't job for.

I generally don't blacklist people. Sometimes they're just kids who don't know better. When they learn, they become tolerable, if not skilled pirates. If they really are incurable grandma-selling tarts, they tend not to last long on one pirate, so blacklisting them becomes useless.

Re: Is Blood thicker than Water?

People I care enough about to follow up and have expelled = 2. One no longer plays on Viridian, the other is in a place that is better for them at this point in their life anyway.

The rest of the expelled people - weren't in the crew long enough anyway.

Wiki: http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Kraken%27s_blood

1 kg of Blood has a volume of 1 L.
1 kg of water has a volume of 1 L.

Blood is not thicker than water, they're equal. (Yes, it depends on Temperature.)

And on topic...I have nothing.

Re: Is Blood thicker than Water?

As a former Captain I can agree with Rude on his points...but I've been more tolerant than most of the Captains that play.

There are 2 things however I will not tolerate...lying and thievery...I would expel a member of my crew without hesitation...then /complain them.I have a lot of friends in the game so not only do I do this I also alert them as to the actions of the former crew member...BUT...I also bring the friends on the ships that have been stolen from so they can see for themselves that this former crew member has stolen from me.

I'm not one to accuse anyone of anything without infinite proof...also in my former crews I always made sure that all the officers that were in my crew did 3 things:

1) Started out as pirate and worked for their rank...I found that hiring someone off the street as an officer unknown to me or any one of the other officers was a recipe for disaster.

2) That person would have to prove themselves to me and other officers to have the skills necessary in order to recieve the rank of officer and above i.e. run a few pillages and see how they do.Mean as it may seem sometimes I'd even hire a few friends and let them put the officer through their paces (good jobber,bad jobber).

3) Make sure that all my officers were a cohesive unit and worked together.Any officer that had an issue with another would have a meeting with me to resolve the issue with myself as the mediator.Fair and impartial...not taking sides but me offering different options for resolution.

Sorry the post is so long....just wanted to let you guys know my requirements when I was a Captain.I actually expelled someone 3 times before I finally gave up on them.

Re: Is Blood thicker than Water?

Comments

Terry : Yer slightly off topic but I agree

Terry : The bit on topic of vetting officers means fewer thieves and liars get anywhere where they can do damage

Swearers : Tend to get expelled from many crews until they join a swearing crew or get complained, banned and/or repatriated

"I want Officer" : tend to find small crews where they strut their stuff for 5 minutes and try to use it as leverage to get into a bigger crew at a higher rank. A few get lucky that the small crew they join gets large, most always feel a hollow victory of officership and are still Officers ina small crew.

"I want Gun/Nav" : Most eventually get the hint that they need the extra practice, which only takes a short while in any case and move on

"My other character is an Ulimate gunner" : These liars normally just move to other crews until some poor bugger accepts their lies

So in general Rude
- people with like minded ideas do tend to clump as that is where they find *acceptance* for their behavior
