Monthly Seals..

This may have been suggested or mentioned before, but couldn't find it. Monthly seals have proved quite popular over time, and a lot of pirates have the entire set (I had a long hiatus from the game so I don't) making sure they get them asap as each new one comes out.

Last month it was HS graveyards - suddenly more pirates were logging onto my usually sleepy Cerulean ocean and people were actually.. shock, horror.. going out on ships to get the seal. Sadly after about the first week this slowed down quite quickly as more and more people got their seal and then seemingly didn't want to go on HS anymore.

This month it's complete 2 foraging sessions.. come on GH thats a bit uninspired, took all of 2 minutes to get the seal, and then done.

My suggestion is to have levels of monthly seal - same seal icons but with a bronze, silver or gold (and platinum if ye want) frame around it to show just how much work was put in to get it. Pirates still can get the seal with minimum effort - or they can keep going to get it "upgraded". For example with the HS graveyards it can be 3, 10, 25 for bronze, silver and gold. That way the interest goes on for longer - more pirates logging on, and on Cerulean we sure need that!

Apologies if this has been suggested before!

Brilliant. Any sort of "levels" in the game drive people to play more, and this is an easy way to keep people coming back regularly each month.

Another trophy idea:

Ones for having puzzle experience for every puzzle in a category. There are many different trophies for experience in one particular puzzle (expert, sublime, etc.), but there's nothing showing that you are a pirate with experience over many different puzzles, like broad on every pirating puzzle, or broad on every crafting puzzle. I think that would be a cool addition, and could spur people to diversify what they do a little more.

Broad of Broads? Sounds a little insulting to some, no? Lol. Anyway, I think this has been suggested before.
