Tasty Brew! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I love distilling and to that end I want to see a trophy for finishing a game of distilling without sending up ANY white balls. That is to say sending up 12 rows full of only spice, brown, black, and burnt balls! I think this is much much harder than it sounds. Please oh please can I have this trophy!? Boots of bilge are easy. You need to really know what you are doing to mess distilling up this badly. :D

Call it the "Unsavory Brew" or "Poisoned Brew".

Give it a try, this condition is hard to do and shows a good amount of skill in distilling. :)

Blah, blah, distilling, blah, blah.

Grandpa, what is that medal for? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I don't think this one has been covered yet:

Trophies for flags and crews. I.E. The flag or crew itself gets a trophy for a significant event or accomplishment much like individual pirates do. The point of this is to provide nice but not gameplay effecting rewards for group efforts, encourage activities that are beneficial to the game, and provide levers for getting new players interested in crew and flag activities.

Certain of these trophies would cascade down. Cascaded trophies would note the flag or crew they cascaded from.

Cascaded trophies would have their own boxes below the pirate trophies on the pirate info page. Crews would have Crew and "cascaded flag" trophy displays. Flags are top dog and only have their own.

Example:
Blue Flag blockades (as their first blockade) Alpha and wins.
Blue Flag gains "Blockade Alpha II" for an island control blockade, "Control of Alpha" for what it says, "Blockade Victory", and "Blockade Participant".

The "Blockade Alpha II" is a "campaign trophy", and would be given to all participating flags, with cascading down to both participating crews and members. Jobbers from flags that did not participate directly would not get the trophy, since mercenaries don't get medals.

"Blockade Victory" would cascade down the same way, of course only applying to flags and their members on the winning side.
"Blockade Participant" would be awardable directly to participating crews (including independents) and jobbers.

"Control of Alpha" would not cascade, but would remain with the flag even if they should lose the island later.


Other obvious sources for flag trophies are PvP sinks, fame, and reputation.
Other obvious sources for crew trophies are any of the sea battle activities.

Ideas?

We have trophies for getting maneuver tokens, but how about one for getting the specifically requested token?

(For example, getting the thrall token in CI, especially since that can be pretty vital to the trip and yet it often comes at the price of performance.)

I second this... right now token trophies are only received for blockades... can we have a CI token trophy (like "thrall tamer" or something) or an Atlantis token trophy.

I'm assuming this has been discussed earlier, but why not remove redundant trophies? For example, removing the trophies for ultimate hearts, spades, poker, TD, drinking when the ultimate carouser is awarded, removing broad trophies when expert trophies are awarded, etc.

It seems like we should try to make trophies pages more succinct, as theyre getting to be quite huge. I know people like to show off their masses of trophies, but it really is a waste of space.

I think we need to add a new Ci trophy. There should be different trophies for getting a certain amount of frenetics. say... 30. There could be more at different increments, i don't know. This would be helpful when jobbing to weed out the 'lucky' foragers who happen to get frenetic once. With the one frenetic, the people who constantly get frenetic get lumped in with the people who get it every once in a while. This will help elite jobbing.

That's not true. I hardly ever blockade, but go on CIs all the time, and I have a few token trophies.

That is less of a reason for giving it then and more of one for giving it now. Then you had to be part of a special clique, and got a figurative gold star for it. Now everybody can - but not enough people do.

Flag/Crew trophies Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

From searching around these forums, I know that crew/flag trophies have been suggested before. However the type of trophies have been variable.

My two cents towards such trophies should be to recognize benchmark achievements for a crew and flag as well as current activities. A common question I get as a greeter is "where a good crew/flag that I can join?" It's hard to someone that this crew/flag is a good fit for their level and method of playing. Some pirates just want to pillage (no SMH/CI, and vice versa), some want to just carouse (parlour game crews), some are interested in Flots and/or cades. The current ranks of fame/reputation touch on these aspects, but it's all grouped into large categories. Also trophies are a more visual indicator, especially to newer pirates.

As a CI and elite pillage bnaver, I look at a pirate's trophy page to screen for certain type of jobbers I want aboard my ship. Thus the same reasoning could be applied when a pirate (new or old) could be crew/flag shopping. The trophies should reflect a crew/flag's ability for certain aspects of gaming:

Order of Jolly Roger: this would indicate whether the crew is old or new. This would help pirates in the aspect whether they want to join a new fresh crew/flag and be part of building it. Or join an old salt crew/flag in which they can gain experience from (relatively) older pirates.

(Monthly) Seals o piracy: Although this would involve a lot of time for developers to implement, this would be a collective goal for crew/flag. My take on personal pirate seals is that it was OOO's solution of getting pirates more active in different aspects of the game. The same could be applied for crew/flags. I don't like the idea of monthly seals... it may be too much pirating overload. So preset seals could be the start of this scheme. An example could be 10/100/500/1000 successful brig/barb battles. This would show to prospective pirates the activity of pillaging within a crew/flag and its success rate.

Cade flags: like the number of points a pirate earns on cades, a crew/flag should get recognition as well. This would indicate crew/flag activity in cades and flotillas for the prospective pirate wanting to get a lot of sinky action.

There are many other suggestions previously stated before, so I won't repeat. Of note, if these trophies (or similiar ones) were ever implemented, they would have to be retroactive. I'm not sure if that poses a problem with developers, but long existing crew/flags would deserve the shiney.

Re: Flag/Crew trophies Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

A new thread was just posted asking for monthly skill-based trophies here. While I don't think that the monthly trophies should be skill-based, I was looking over my trophy page and realized we really do need more skill-based trophies.

Right now, the only skill trophies are for the top of the top. Incredible (not too tough to get once, but still the top level), Ultimate (very difficult), and #1 (even more difficult). There needs to be something for skill that's more obtainable for a player in his first few months.

Trophies for achieving Master standing (perhaps silver versions of the Ult trophies?) would be great, since "master" is usually the cut off line for jobbers for the more difficult activities like Atlantis or CI.

Trophies for multiple incredibles (bejeweled and diamond plaques for perhaps 100 and 1000 respectively)

Furniture corresponding to those trophies that can only be purchased if you have the trophy (and is inscribed with your name) would be awesome, too. That way there is another reward to show off for doing well in puzzles.

I'd suggest Renown, since that is the cutoff for things like Expert labor, seeing skeleton missions, and the like.

One at distinguished, one at renowned. Yes, I know that means more trophy spam for skilled players, but for a few people, distinguished is an actual achievement.

Having the ability to hide trophies that have been upgraded would be nice, as well.

Too easy to fake :P And people who keep flag funds for larger flags reach that amount easily, even though the money is not theirs.

What could perhaps be a fun trophey, is one for having spend x Dubloons (on a Dubloon Ocean ofcourse). It's a bit similar to the x whisks and the x portraits one.

Or if Sub oceans would feel left out, it could be made for having spend x PoE aswell. I think it would amaze a lot of people about how much they have actually spend already in their career!

One thing I'm thinking of though, dubloon payments in-game are tracked always. I don't know if this is the case for PoE though?
