is this related to the round i got bwoinked in yesterday ?
I rolled pirate yesterday with a pirate captain who ignored every advice i gave with “i’m a captain i don’t care”, proceeded to launch the ship while i said i wasn’t ready, landed us 20 tiles away from the station with no jetpacks & no actual useful plan other than “charge in” & told us we’d just do it his way because he’s the captain and we don’t get to choose
I told cap that, if he really wants to do this plan, then i’d just wait on the ship to defend it from borgs/mechs/spessmen while they assault the station,
Because, no, i don’t want to barge into a suicide plan solely for a guy who ignored every single thing I said.
The other pirate was also totally unconvinced by cap’s stuff but went along anyways.
Cap proceeded to instantly die (obviously, the crew was armed and ready for us), the other pirate forced to flee in the opposite direction of the ship (turns out it was parked too far for him to risk going towards it, but he was very robust and survived). Waited a fair bit just in case, kept hearing people circle around the ship and had to leave to retrieve the other pirate at a better, stealthier location - with whom i then proceeded to retrieve 2 other tots & steal shit from the lathes and attempt to get our green.
I then get bwoinked for “not being a good teammate” and “needing to act more in team” when said cap forcefully ignored everything told to him and imposed himself as a leader with 0 experience (which is fine) but NO care for any advice gave unto him. Thankfully, no note, because after explaining, admin agreed that, with the situation, no i wasn’t just betraying the cap to act on my own for no reason.
If you weren’t said cap, then this is even more proof that, no, pirate cap should not have exclusive access to the console.
Disregarding the obvious point that - if cap dies then this is the end of pirates. which is totally stupid.
Even nuke ops don’t have reliance on their captain, apart from just opening the bay doors. I don’t see why it’d be diff for pirates.
