Re: As a fine and occasionally poor player, am I dead weight compared to a bot?
In the title, really - getting 'fine' is an accomplishment for me and I wonder if I'm really contributing much on a ship when the bots will monotonously give 'fine' all day long.

Sorry for the late reply, but I can't believe people haven't answered this with the huge reason.

When you pillage, the amount of PoE that gets awarded to the ship when you win is based on how many *pirates* are on the ship (along with a few other factors). The Captain then gets a cut (the "crew cut") that is used to pay for the cannonballs and rum used. If you were replaced with a bot (swabbie), the ship would get less PoE awarded and the Captain wouldn't make as much.

As long as you are really trying your best and not just lazing around or causing problems, you are helping the ship more than a swabbie would be.
Algol can not assert the truth of all statements in this post and still be consistent.
