Too few crew slots and people who bought helix stuff will be the only ones getting their Jomsvikings recruited by others with any frequency.
Regarding the subject of this thread, maybe some people save before creating a Jomsviking to see what it will look like and they somehow all end up saved?
I've recruited 33 other players' Jomsvikings. The only thing I look at is the player's ID.
I don't recruit any Jomsviking where the user name has "Guest" as the first part of it anymore. I figure those people most likely can't be bothered to create a Ubisoft account, so they're probably not interested in anything beyond the actual story content of the game.
I don't recruit "CachouMTL's" Jomsvikings: because of the bug.
I've recruited Jomsvikings from:

I think that's all of them. There could be some typos in there. There really are two "Ergi-Impaler" Jomsvikings side by side in my barracks.
I didn't recruit any of them because of how they looked (though I did choose not to recruit one basically naked really big one, as I found him hard on the eyes). Most of them are wearing in-game armour.
Their outfits change, too. The ones that I have on my ship keep the same name, but occasionally wind up equipped differently. It looks like their appearances are updated when the player who owns the Jomsviking changes the gear. It wouldn't make sense to recruit them because of how they look.
My Jomsviking is Ofridr Sneak-Thief. He's decked out in the Mentor's set right now, with dual daggers, but that will change again.
I'm hoping I'll be able to utilize more of them with the river raids.
@kreutzgang I typed it all up while I was watching the U.S. inauguration. I’ve actually been meaning to do it for a while. I think it would be fun to learn that someone had hired my Jomsviking, but there’s no way to find out. At least there’s now a written record of the ones I’ve hired (minus the people who appeared to use their real first and last names in their user names).

Im tired of only seeing CachouMTL jomsviking only takes away from trying to get friends as well as others who play game that I could be helping out I do not recruit any now because refuse to get the guy who has unlimited supply. I'm hoping this can be fixed soon id love to experiance river raids with jomsviking of choice not one players.

My turn to dig up an old thread. Lol.
Just came on to say, I saw your jomsviking today in raventhorpe and recruited him. Usually I ignore those bunch as my Eivor is too good for those peasants, but for some reason, today I actually went and checked if it belonged to someone I knew.
Thanks! I just popped into the forum today for the first time in a couple of weeks and saw this.
I used yours in most of my raids (along with the other friends’ Jomsvikings that I've been able to recruit) and yours levelled up for me: not as quickly as my own levelled, but I was pleased.
I’m not sure if my use of your Jomsviking benefits you at all, but it makes me smile.
