Okay, personally I dont think item theft is enough to get you banned at ALL! I mean think about it. (If oceanmaster are reading this...PAY ATTENTION!)

Theft is what Piracy is all about. Wheres the fun in having a game all about pirates and BEING a pirate without being allowed to steal anything?! If you get things stolen from you then its your fault! I think that instead of getting banned, I have a better idea.

What if you steal something, instead of the victim go crying to the Oceanmasters, they go crying to the Royal Navy! That would be so much FUN!!! Then the Navy could put a bounty on your head and then youd be like a high priority target for brigands and navy ships of course. PLUS! If another HUMAN controlled ship manages to take on a ship with the thief on it, they can try and take him/her prisoner, then take him/her to a Naval ship to claim the bounty (which would differ from the seriousness of the theft)

Oceanmasters, eat your hearts out.

A lot of people would be sad if you lost your heart, but it could create a new event!

Guess what? We are not really pirates. We are just people playing a game. Stealing is wrong, everyone ought to know that, so there's no excuse for stealing.

And as for your argumentation, pirates did not steal from their own crewmates either you know. I'm pretty sure that was a very serious offence if one did that, and could easily cost one their life. So be glad we aren't really pirates, and the equivalent is just killing someone's piratey life by banning them.

You pretty much were killed or incapacitated or incarcerated if you stole back in the good old pirate days. A ban is the same thing. Therefore, we are playing real pirates and you received your proper punishment.

You morons i didnt get banned for it...i would have had i not found out from a friend and thats as far as ill go. Come on you sissies! Something like that would be much more fun. You could still make the punishment a permanent ban BUT dont do it unless you can get caught (caught in the literal term)

The punishment is a permanent ban if you get caught.

And we're not pirates. We're people playing a fun puzzle game with little noseless Playmobil pirates. If you were playing with little plastic figures in real life, and hit the person next to you, would you expect to get away with the excuse that "real pirates hit each other all the time"?

Oh yes, it sounds like so much fun to be forced to be online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, watching your stuff so it doesn't get stolen... Not. Besides, it would be completely impossible, if you have any sort of life, not to mention the need to sleep. And it's so much fun to have your hard earned stuff stolen because you couldn't be online watching it... Again, not. All you are suggesting is a sure way to kill a game.

Oh, and drop the language, "surprisingly" that is against the ToS as well, despite us playing a pirate game.
