It kinda is a pain that the only way to effectively get trainers is to go
every single day of your life to check on them based on their low spawn rate.
It's great for no lifers who are here all the time anyhow, but for those who
want to be here many days, but not all, I'd love to see a tweak. What if when
a trainer shows up, and is NOT claimed by the person, the chances of a trainer
showing up increases on par with one of the other types of special crews,
possibly only for a month or so. For example, I go to something cool (like an
all day long star wars movie-a-thon!), a sailor trainer shows up. Since I
didn't log on to train him, the odds of him showing up increase so that odds
are I will get him. Trainers are very nice, but we shouldn't be penalized
because we didn't log on to the mud the one day this year that he shows up.
It could be made so that you can only get this benefit for the first 2 or 3
trainers for a type, and after that you're as screwed as the rest of us are.
Afterall,, if they idea is that trainers are attracted because of our awesome
reputation, then they should still want to seek us out even if we were out on
the 3rd of february this year.
