    Have an Infamy-pushing contest. At the beginning of a season, send a PM to all players, saying that there is a contest to see who can gain the most infamy in two weeks.
    Specifications:
    1. Starting from the players current infamy
    2. Starts right before a season ends, so Nightmare players would have to push to their previous infamy (or half of how far they were above 4K) to start
    3. Does not count infamy gained, counts the difference between starting and highest-during-contest infamy
    4. In each tie, whoever gained the fastest comes first
    5. One time thing
    Rewards:
    1. Free crew train, one week free VIP, 2000 pearls, 2X epic chest, some captain XP, and a custom forum title
    2. 1X Epic chest, 1000 pearls, a little captain XP, and one crew train half off
    3. 1X Epic chest, 500 pearls
    • Top ten, Epic chest
    • Top twenty-five, Captain XP
    • Top one hundred, 50 pearls
    Comments:
    Imo this would encourage people to go where bad season rewards can't.
    @Devs, I realize you're busy, but keep this in mind. ;)
    Feel free to comment on what you think the rewards should be. :)
    Who do you think would win? Someone from *Noob League* (can't remember the name), Warrior, Master, Ace, or Nightmare?

    I almost thought you're hosting an unofficial contest and you're so rich to giveaway those rewards:p

    I won't be playing much soon. Planning on quitting. Good luck with the contest though!

    I love the idea, I would certainly take part.

    However, I think this is what seasons should really be. At the moment they just reward the person with the highest infamy, regardless of where they started. That would seem to advantage people who start the season high.

    Regarding the idea as it is now. I think it should probably be measured from highest infamy, so that people can’t purposefully drop infamy before it starts.

    Nightmare players can’t help dropping infamy before each season, so they might need different rules, or a seperate contest.

    I really like the idea. And it would be great to see the season rewards boosted. However if you do a contest based on most infamy gained you could only do it once. Anymore often and you’re encouraging people to drop low so they can boost higher quicker when the contest starts

    Low frequency, high reward would be the way to go here!

    It would start with no warning.
    That's why it would start right BEFORE the season ended. Then they would have to climb to their prev. infamy (or
    Say the player is at 4500 when the contest starts, you would have to get to 4500 (or if that's too high, 4250) before it starts to count. :)
    No!!! :mad::(
    Yeah, I thought about that. It'd be a one time thing.
    For a one time, all player contest?

    This would encourage infamy dropping more than anything else in the game. This also rewards people who are starting out and not those who have played for awhile and stay around the same infamy.

    For a lot of people, this would turn into “can you win a match before you get counted as a seal clubber” Challenge:(

    Well, I'm at 3,096 infamy right now... It would take a miracle for me to pass 3.2k infamy.
