Pvp ranks

Ahoy pirates!

I need ideas for pvp ranks depending on the bounty you have. So for example:

Bounty > 0 = landlubber
Bounty > 100 = bandit
Bounty > 250 = pirate
Bounty > 500 = corsair
Etc...

I need many titles and would be cool if they were pirate related.

The rank will be shown next to the player name.

Thanks!

Speaking of bounty system, it's easy to abuse. I can just ask a friend to let me kill them over and over again while racking up bounty points.

Nice list dragothor!

Yes, will need to fix so that killing someone with 0 bounty doesnt give much. Anyone knows how other games do it to prevent that?

The bounty system will become more meaningful later when incorporated into the crew system that will come in the next version.

In no particular order:

Blackbeard
Ironhook
Blackeye
Patchy
Redbeard
Scratchy
Cutthroat
Swashbuckler
Buccaneer
Scurvy
Scallywag
Deadwood


The rank will be shown next to the player name.

Our in-game name? Because we already show: character name + crew name + skull(if Crusader), and I think adding more might be too much text.



Idea: what if we had ranks for "good" AND "bad" players. Do something "good(kill a Crusader, etc.)", you earn points towards a positive rank. Do something "bad(kill a non-Crusader, etc.)", you earn points towards a negative rank. Each side of ranks could have their own pros and cons. And the top ranked player of each side could be rewarded with a special, permanent bonus to stats(or something else along those lines), as long as they remain #1 on that side. The two top ranked could also be rewarded with a special crown/pirate hat/etc. hat skin to show off. Top ranked "bad" player could be named 'Blackbeard' while top ranked "good" player could be named 'Whitebeard', for example.

Thanks for the names!

Maybe I can make an icon for each rank so it won't look to cluttery. Name, crewname and rank is not shown unless you hover the mouse over the player, so I think it can work.

I like the idea of "bad" and "good" but I don't want to promote players to be jerks to eachother. I think it would be better to promote crew interactions and motivate crews to fight eachother, that way we can have "Blackbeard" crew, "Whitebeard crew" etc. In v0.72 I will introduce the crew points and a "battlefield" like pvp game across the whole world map.
