Daily Task System

Dear Pirates.

Today i was thinking about what would be a nice extra to the game.

When you log in There should be a message like today this are your daily's:

Go on a Expediton 0/1
Get a Good ranking or above 30 times 0/30
Haul A sunken ship in flotilla 0/1
Get a Incredible 0/1

This are Very simple tasks but we can all think of more tasks that we can complete on a daily base and after we completed these task there should be a reward Poe/Treasure Chest
The More Poe you recieve depends on how hard the task is

I hope you guys like this idea :)

Re: Daily Task System

The biggest problem with this is abuse by alt accounts. What prevents someone from just making a bunch of accounts just to do the dailies for extra poe?

(Also, why would we need such a system? If the only reason someone is playing is to do dailies, then should we really want to keep that person? If not, then why do this?)

Also, I think there's another thread about this somewhere in GD. But I'll let someone else find that.

Re: Daily Task System

That something i dind't think about maybe we should make a different kind of reward something non-tradeable that can be used up in a store.

We want to keep the pirates on the ocean and maybe during this task system they dont lose the interest in the game.

See Seals of Piracy.

What do you mean by this?

Although not similar enough, in my opinion, to release the Faulkston, it has a similar goal: encourage players to play on a daily basis for in-game rewards.


Off Topic: Release the Faulkston. . .has a good ring to it.

Re: Daily Task System

They have this feature on a lot of games now, like Halo. It's cool because it gives you objectives that are easy to complete and rewarding.

In Halo, though, they give you experience. Since you don't level up in this game, the only other rewards would be trophies, items, and/or PoE. This means it could be abused by alts.

See Seals of Piracy. I meant a kind of token that could be spended

What do you mean by this? This Lets say special tokens and a special shop for this kind of tokens to Buy something like design or special furnite or clothing

We should create something that can't be abused

It would have to be non-tradeable. If it can't be traded, it can't be lost unless it ages or is the cost of something. The only thing I can think of that like would be a special, third kind of currency, or trinkets for recipes.

Even so, the people with more characters are going to have an advantage over those who use less.

Re: Daily Task System

No support, could be abused by alts and I personally get bored of these daily tasks on all the other games I've played.

Re: Daily Task System

It should be like a third kind of currency so people can buy special kind of swords or furnite with it

Example:
200 daily tickets Throne of Zeus
Some new items only retrieve able through this store

Then people who have alts will be able to buy multiple Thrones of Zeus, when others who only play on one pirate will be able to buy only one.

Yes that is true, there is noway around that it is a very hard problem to tackle But there should be a sulution i think so
But what do you guys think about the system it self besides the reward part?

Re: Daily Task System

I use an off-game task system and give myself rewards for completing the tasks. I don't see why it's necessary to add this feature to the game, as there's already a similar monthly task for rewards. (the monthly seal)

May I ask what exactly you are referring to? (Or is this just a list you made yourself?)

Re: Daily Task System

A to-do chrome add-on in which I might have certain reoccurring tasks (go on four cit runs), and daily unique tasks (move stock from A to B for ship C, memorize route from D to E, redesign room F in my house, get E amount of patch tokens, two new trophies.) I think you get the idea.
