actually... i always thought "nice set" was a lame bonus. why not an "efficient carping" bonus for using some of the more rare/exotic shapes to make a completion. (using a at least 4 or 5 I's, W's, Z's, for example)... something that requires more skill.

Couse that is not how carpenting works, such thing would encourage people to save spots for rare pieces who don't often come, and thus getting a lower score, letting the standing of people drop...

True Acheivements:

Treason!: Collect all of a Brigand King's available trinkets.

Master Of The Trade: Acheive Ultimate/Sublime in a puzzle.

Unbreakable: Max an enemy's ship while no damage is dealt to yourself in 5 consecetive battles.


*Sarcasm* Acheivements! *Sarcasm*:

O Pilly?: Arrive in port after 3 pillages with a 0% profit rate or less each time. (At least 2 battles are required in each pillage)

Ya Pilly!: Same as above but have a maxed damage counter somewhere during the pillage

No Wai!: Same as above, but with both damage and bilge counter maxed

*Dead*: Same as No Wai!, but with the goods and PoE on the ship at the beginning of the pillage gone.

Note: You can mix the pillages that fits into 2 of the category to get the "lesser" trophy

E.g. 2 pillys that fits into O Pilly? and 1 pilly that fits into *Dead* can get you the O Pilly? trophy. Yay.

Id like to see a trophy for battle nav. Have different stages. 100/500/1k/5k battles. Most battle navers get a little screwed in pillies, cause they dont have to or can not man a station.

All these would be achieved with one float between almost any two islands, if you put some limes and 10 poe in the coffers. So... bring it on!

Adding to this thread because I guess people liked the idea best as a trophy, even if I'm not convinced that a trinket isn't more appropriate:

At the end of every YPP 24 hour period, award a trophy to the pirate who has done the Most Incredible duty puzzle league and the Most Incredible crafting puzzle session.

As with other trophies, they are upgradable if you meet the same criteria multiple times.

We have a trophy for killing skeletons, and trophys for acquiring skeleton skulls. Why not a trophy for winning the same trinket in a tournament more than once?

Well, first of all for carp Grain Bonus trophies are no good because people will carp badly JUST so they cna get the trophy and secondly Nice Set is ultra hard to get for High standing ranked player such as leg/ult because of harder (much bigger holes).

So my idea for the carp trophies is the hammers (much like the crabs. But it will take a while to get 100 master pieces to maybe my formula will speed it up?

For example if you get a Masterpiece5 that will be masterpiece1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +5 so this would equal 15points, instead of each masterpiece counting as one where that total would only be 5points.

So a Masterpiece^15 would be 120 points? Cooooool.

My suggestion is that you wouldn't get trophies for only being #1 in a puzzle. I think getting to top ten is good enough for a trophy.

Yes it would because 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14 = 120

Meaning it will maybe just take a bit longer then the crabs.

Problem there is that more then one ship attacks one, and if one ship did say 99% of the damage then someone comes and Ks's it, the one who got the last shot would of won that trophy while the other ship who busted their butt gets zip :/. Trust me it happens on FPS games so it will happen on here sadly, maybe not as often, but some greedy naver in a blockade would take the kill off a ship who worked hard damage the ememy ship badly

That's not a very good scoring scheme.

Getting 100 masterpieces isnt hard at all. Any Ultimate can easily do that in 1-2 hours.

My average per puzzle is MP^10.

My girlfriend (a GM at carps) makes eventuals MP^3s.

Please, lets not make trophies so easy to get. Look what the silver crab trophy has become...

That problem can be easily solved if the trophy is given only on PVPs and not on blockades.

It will also encourage more war battles!

It actually would be 2x as slow as the crabs in most situations. But i admit it would be very easy for the ults, but we really cant afford to make it any harder for lower level carpers as you say yer gf is GM get a few MP3s here n there. Meaning she would have to get MP3 17 times which may take a while for a GM. and i hate seeing sublime/dist bilgers walking around with diamond crab but to get the hammers in carp you need to be more skillful.

The person who asked about it though didn't metion what kind. I was only stating if it was in Blockades, I know it would be better use in PvPs, but he wasn't asking about it.

I think there should be a trophy for instakills in sf. Like the crabs trophy in bilge, you get a better one, the more insta' kills you do.

I dont know how hard this code would be to make, but i think it would be a good troophy to have.

The Black Ship is a punishment and therefore the less enchanting and rewarding it is , the better.

Last thing we want , is people attacking blue ships on purpose to get a stupid trophy.

If anything, a trophy should be given to the small blue boat being chased by a big red one.
