We need more badass titles.
« on: March 29, 2013, 03:48:43 am »
As the title says, specifically for captains. I mean: 'master sailor' or whatever it is, is so lackluster, I don't feel it conveys the appropriate tone of badassery. It is the view of many that once you pass level 6 'Aeronaut' the titles go down hill. It says something when I can't even remember the proper level 10 title because it's so unremarkable. I heard somewhere that level 10 gunner title was 'Striker' see, you nailed it with that one. Give us captains some lovin' muse <3

TL;DR: Captain titles need a revamp.

Start using naval ranks?

Ensign-1
Lieutenant jr grade -2
Lieutenant-3
Lt. Commander-4
Commander-5
Captain-6
Rear admiral lower half-7
Rear admiral upper half-8
Vice admiral-9
Admiral-10

I agree. "Sailing Master" is just such a step down from Chief Navigator, which in turn isn't as cool as Aeronaut. I like Lord Dick Tim's idea.

I don't know about the naval ranks. It kind of lacks that steampunk flavor. Aeronaut for example screams airship captain. I'd have to have a look at the full the current list to get a better idea (anyone know where I can find it?) but I'd like to see something ranging from like "Master Aeronaut" downward.

This won't work, just because of Zill.... he is lvl 10, and I fear that if he is named "Admiral RearAdmiralZill" would cause the game to enter into a logic loop that would then deteriorate, and finally implode... on the other hand it would be a good way to nerf Zill..... choices choices choices......

On a more serious note, I agree that the names lack the proper awe... but I'm not sure what names would be good for it...

I really wish i could have a signature sometimes. Id have half a page of quotes like this.

I agree that after Aeronaut, the level titles took a slight creative nosedive.

To be honest, I don't mind as long as I'm not called something patronizing like "able sailor".

Good point. There is probably a character limit though at some stage.

"Admiral RearAdmiralZill"


I come across plenty of Captain "X"s around the lobbys, so I don't see how someone's name should influence the overall title system.
