This article is only for bringing all information obtained about the Jinxed Idol together. This page is kind of a spoiler.

Jinxed Idol


Things we KNOW about it

  • You can get it at any ocean.
  • It is awarded upon log in.
  • It was not awarded to pirates directly after the patch (makes us assume it has to do with a recent activity).
  • Unsubbed pirates can get it.
  • All the pirates who have it assume that they don't know how they got it.

Some pirates who are known to have received it

Please use the international date format yyyy-mm-dd. That other one only works for North America.

Please note this is not a exhaustive list, and is compiled from the discussion thread. Some information is missing, also dates used here as recieved are speculative based on the dates of the releavant posts, please edit accordingly, remaining in date order.


Things which, as standalone events, do NOT trigger it

The events listed in this section are have been tested to see if they are sole triggers for the trophy, and have been eliminated. They may still be in contention for combinations of events and/or circumstances if the trophy turns out to have multiple triggers.

These broad categories of activities, events and status have been eliminated as potential triggers for the trophy:

These more specific events have also been eliminated:

given that I passed very little money.-Only have a sloop.

Theories that have been suggested

  • Multiple triggers, with only N out of X triggers required
  • A lot of POE passing through the pirate's hands
  • a longer delay than simply "next login session" before it is awarded
  • Low experience / High efficiency trophy
  • Repeating the same action(s) in 2/3+ sessions (know as the "Deja Vu" theory)/Mique(viridian) adds: i loged in and did EXACTLY the same as my last session (even chat was almost a deja vu) and i foraged and won exactly same type and number of commodities and dont have it.
  • Something to do with idling out, or idling for some amount of time (note the idle/idol pun)

(Kornflake - The next 5 suggestions don't fit my circumstance, unless there is a long delay before rewarding idol)

  • losing at least 5 matches in a row and loging out.
  • being marooned a set number of times (someone even put this on the trophy page!)
  • Having a Certain Number Of Sinks/Items Degrading
  • Certain # of sinks Without Injury?
  • Being rated close to #1 in the ocean in a puzzle for a long time, but never actually getting #1.
  • Being a pirate who has contributed in-game art, and whose art has been bought by other pirates.
  • Fighting zombies on a darkened island and losing an unknown amount of battles before finally besting them.

Unlikely suggestions

These suggestions would normally be considered unlikely because they reward a player for poor performance or bad behaviour... but on the other hand the name of the trophy has a negative connotation.

  • jinxed the ship by joining.... they went from winning (3 wins) to losing (2 losses)
  • A significant drop in standing
  • Frequent/many disconnects (would encourage players to deliberately disconnect)

Things we HOPE that they are not true

  • Trophy may be given out randomly - we really hope that's not it, but it has been awarded to a very diverse range of pirates and many players believe that it is random because no patterns have yet been found and confirmed.
