Endorsed the Fray Throphies for lantis (Has already been suggested before I think), endorsed the duty puzzle throphies, and the #1s.

I am sure though that these have previously already been suggested, atleast a few of them. Though eodrsed them again :)

Really nice names raggedjoe, and a perfect match of reference names(Liquidation, Nemesis...)
The #1 's are very addictive, we shoud have a competition to see who will reach King first.
Liked it a lot, more than endorsed.

PS: Thank you for the credits ;D

I want a "Benjamin" trophy*, for collecting 100 sand dollars.

I mean, what else are they good for?

For bonus points, all 100 dollars vanish when the trophy is given.

I'd think 1000 would be more appropriate as getting 100 can be done in a day or so.

I think that would be more of a ranking system, then another trophy itself. Like you could be a "Gold Trophy Collector" for getting 100, or something.

I Don't know if this has been suggested but i think that Every Duty Puzzle should have something like the Boots of Bilging. You should get a Trophy for being Sublime/Able in every puzzle.

It has been suggested, but it has also been said (dunno where) that other trophies like it will not be created. The trophy is a joke on other RPGs where items increase your skills (such as in Runescape).

With the recent change of referral awards from poe to bandannas, I'd like to see that replaced by a trophy. Maybe one for having a referred friend create an account and log on and then 1 for having a friend buy doubloons or subscribe. The first trophy should not have any extra levels to it, otherwise people will go right back to abusing the system. There should, however, be levels for the second trophy, maybe another one is handed out after 5-10 friends become paying customers and so forth.

Sounds like a great idea to me, and this will encourage people to refer as well.

Re: Trophy Suggestion Thread Reply to this Post

I feel that Trophies should always be split into one of three categories:

"Play the Game" Trophies:
These reward good play. For example, Bronze / Expert / Sublime medals, getting an Ultimate in a duty report (face it, it isn't that hard to do this at least once...) and so on.

"Nicely Done!" Trophies:
These are for harder things, but by no means impossible.

Examples once again include getting onto the Ultimate List, or hauling 250 Treasure Chests.

"Epic Fail!" Trophies:
There are times when failing is fun just because you get a prize. The problem here is you don't really want people screwing up the game for others... so, whilst I think it'd be pretty funny to have a "lose five pillages" Trophy, it'll only end badly if it's included.


I've never liked Trophies that work along the lines of "Be the best in the whole world!" because I feel a Trophy should be something everyone can earn, not just the ones who were here when the scoreboard was empty.


Anyway, here's a few Trophy ideas:

Pirate Pal - Add a Hearty.
Life o' the Party - Add ten Hearties.

Stowaway - Puzzle on a ship as a Jobber.*
Hireling - Puzzle on a ship as a Jobber ten times.*
Mercenary - Puzzle on a ship as a Jobber fifty times.*
Dog of War - Puzzle on a ship as a Jobber one hundred times.*

Press-ganged - Puzzle on a ship from your own Crew.*
Dogsbody - Puzzle on a ship from your own Crew ten times.*
Midshipman - Puzzle on a ship from your own Crew fifty times.*
Buccaneer - Puzzle on a ship from your own Crew one hundred times.*


* Puzzling must be done for at least thirty minutes on a single voyage to count. You may work multiple stations if you wish (so you could do 5 minutes on Bilge, 20 minutes on Carp, then 5 Nav/Bnav if you wanted to). Pillages, Flotillas, Blockades, Atlantis & Cursed Islands all count.
----------------------------------------
Drink up, me Hearties, Yo-Ho!

I go by Lylax on Midnight, and Lylax on Ice.

i just think that there should be a trophy for getting a royal flush in poker, since the odds of them are very slim and there is a atrophy for winning 1 million Poe.

Makes sense to me!
Endorsed

Though it would add the need for a whole 'nother database or whatever the dev's use to keep track of the numbers.

That involves too much luck.

So? Just because it would be a matter of luck, it isn't worth making a trophy?

I'd think it'd make a good trophy, because it is so rare to happen. In my opinion that makes it a thing worth commemorating or something.
And I wouldn't think it'd take much to code, but that's a guess*.


Royal flush trophy initially endorsed, but due to following comment by Deceptive, I reconsidered and decided that I agreed with him.

Not endorsed.

See, thing is, there is no point in commemorating luck. Since you had NOTHING to do with getting it, you don't deserve a trophy. All it would say is "Oh look at me! I got lucky!" not: "Oh look at me! I got skill!"

And in case your having trouble, we are going for the second one for trophies ;)

It'd be no different is difficulty from achieveing a broad trophy.

Skill? Have you seen the current crop of trophies? Clearly not

Broad/Expert/Sublime trophies have no link to skill.

Blood trophies have no relation to skill.

Flag point trophies

Boots of Bilging

I'd even argue that skellies/zombies/vargas Ci trophies. weren't skill based, just luck that you were in enough winning frays.

Blood Trophies ye need skill for. The battle navigator has to win the battle, and he can't do that alone, and therefore, the skill of the other ship mates, helps get that KB.

Skellies/zombies, vargas CI need skill, without skill, you wouldn't win those frays, without skill, you wouldn't win and you wouldn't get the trophies.

Flag Point Trophies. That requires skill. You have to b-nav there, and sit there, and not get shot. In some blockades, that is hard. And for the rest of the ship, the ship wouldn't move very well if it was only bots.

P.S., look at the text I added and made bold, should clarify things for ye mate.

Very much endorsed. In fact, I think there should be somthing like crabs/guns for more puzzles. My thought for rigging was trophies for looping. It is a feature kind of like crabs that gives you more points, but isn't esential. The MP trophies should be along the lines of the guns in number because they are the basis of carpentry, and the looping trophies could be closer to the crab trophies.

I propose there be 'Flotilla Sink' trophies.

Sink 10 green ships

Sink 10 Red ships

100 Green

100 Red

13678 Green

8933428 Red

I would give names for such trophies but...nothing cheesy comes to mind :p

ps. why not have the Bking or queen actually on one of the ships and if by sinking it you get a trophy.


Flotiller need trophies
