    Creating a crew

    You can start a crew by using /crew create TAG Full Name Of Crew (example: /crew create PC PirateCraft Crew) which costs £20 in game; a crew requires both a name and a tag. The tag will be used as the unique identifier for you crew, will be used in crew commands, and will represent your crew on lists and scores. A crew tag usually is an abbreviation of a crew name, Crew tags have to be between 2-5 characters that have not been used before.

    Using /crew you can open up the main crew GUI. Here you will get an overview of the possible crew-related actions that you can do.



    There are two types of crews, verified and unverified. Unverified crews have a restricted command list, Verified crews are unrestricted. When you first create a crew it will be unverified, These crews have a reduced feature set, no coordinates, vitals, stats, etc, they will not show up on any crew listings, and are automatically deleted if none of its members log in for 90 days (to be greatly reduced in the near future). The purpose of unverified crews is to allow for teams to quickly team up without polluting PirateCraft with one-off abandoned crews. This separates from verified crews that are active. Verified have an inactivity timer of 365 days (To be greatly reduced at a later date). to verify your crew use /crew verify, this costs £250 in-game and requires you to have the rank Sailor or above.

    Crew Chat

    Crews have their own private chat you can talk in using /c [msg], you can also talk with allied crew members using /a [msg]. See below for how to create alliances.

    Crew Alliances and Rivalries

    Any crew leader can send a request to start an alliance with any other crew with /crew ally add. If the request is accepted by a leader of the second crew, the alliance is formed. The alliance can be broken by any leader of either crew at any time with /crew ally remove, no one needs to accept the removal of an alliance.

    Crew rivalries can be started by any crew at any time, no request is needed, rivalries are automatically formed once a crew leader decides he wants one by using /crew rival add. If someone has pissed you off and you want them as rivals, their permission is not needed. To break a crew rivalry on the other hand, you need the acceptance of the other crew, you must use /crew rival remove to send the other crew a request, once one of their leaders accept the rivalry is broken.

    You can view a list of all crews and their allies with the /crew alliances command, or their rivals with the /crew rivalries command.

    Inviting, kicking, trusting and promoting members

    Founders of crews will become the first leader, they can invite other pirates to join their crew with /crew invite. These members are first added with the untrusted status. These members will not be able to view crew vitals, coordinates, or stats. This is to prevent players from joining crews just to spy on other crews by writing down coordinates of bases or viewing vitals during battles. Once a player has gained the crew’s trust they can be upgraded to trusted status with /crew trust. A player can be untrusted from a crew with /crew untrust [player].

    A player can be kicked from a crew by a leader with /crew kick [player].

    You can have multiple leaders for your crew, Pirates can be promoted using the /crew promote. To promote a leader all other leaders must be online and must accept the vote. A leader cannot be promoted unilaterally without the consent of all other leaders. Demotion using the /crew demote command works the same way.

    Crew Ranks

    You can create custom ranks for people in your crew, this allows forms of role play, or organizational rules specific to your crew. Setting a custom rank for someone in your crew is as simple as /crew rank create and /crew rank assign [username] [rankname].

    Tag Customization

    Crew tags have the ability to use color in their tag. This is a donator perk that allows the crew tag to be modified at any time, only the capitalization and color can be changed in the tag. As an example, Lets create a new crew called “Knights of the Cove” with a red and blue tag  “KotC” to do this I would check /colors to view color codes in game and use the following /crew create command:

    /crew create &4K&1o&4t&1C Knights of the Cove
    Available /colors

    Crew home

    Verified crews can set a home-base for their crew locations with /crew home set, this costs £500 each time the command is used by a leader.

    After the home is set, any crew member can /crew home to teleport to the crew location, this costs £15 to use the crew home, there is a 10 second delay to use a crew home.

    Crew Bulletin Board

    The activity of a crew logs the last few events and is displayed to each crew member when they log in to give them a quick overview of what has happened. The built-in board can be pulled up at any time using /crew bb. Trusted members can add messages to the bulletin board using the /crew bb add [msg] command. Messages added to the bulletin board are also announced to any members that are currently online. Each individual pirate can toggle the display of the bulletin board on joining with /crew toggle bb. The bulletin board can be cleared with /crew bb clear.

    Crew List, Crew Members and Pirate Leaderboard

    List all verified crews using /crew list. The list is ordered by KDR, so you can see the most aggressive crews, this will give you an insight into how they play on PirateCraft.

    To view your crew members use /crew roster, this shows the members of your crew and their associated ranks and last seen. You can also view members of other crews using /crew roster [tag].

    The /crew leaderboard shows pirates from all crews KDR, this is a ranked leaderboard that can show you who the top fighters are.

    Crew profiles and Player lookup

    You can look up the profile of any crew with /crew profile [tag] using just /crew profile will show you your crew profile. It shows you the crew leaders, how many members are currently online, the KDR, the sum of all kills and deaths of all members of the crew, allies, rivalries, the date founded, and how many days it has been inactive for.

    You can view a pirates profile by looking up specific players, use /crew lookup [player] to find out their KDR, kills, deaths, what crew they belong to, date they joined the crew, status in a crew, when they were last seen online, a list of all past crews they have been part of, and how many days they have been inactive for. You can view this information for yourself by using /crew lookup.

    Leaving a crew or disbanding a crew

    You can leave a crew with /crew resign, or you can completely remove your crew with /crew disband if you are the leader.

    Crew Stats

    Look at your crew killing statistics with /crew stats, this shows you all of your crew members KDR, raw kills, and death stats. Leaders show on the top and members on the bottom. both are sorted by KDR.

    Crew Vitals and Crew Coordinates

    The /crew vitals command shows you the vitals of all online pirates of your crew and your allies. Here you can see their health, armor and weapons they are carrying as well as the material for the weapons. Vitals also shows health and food bars for each member.

    Help find out where your crew members are with /crew coords. This is exceptionally handy with the distance indicator and coordinates of all online pirates of your crew, sorted by distance.

    Kill / Death Ratio (KDR)

    Once a pirate is part of a verified crew, all their kills and deaths will be recorded. All kills are not equal, Killing a member of a rival crew, neutral crew, and a civilian not attached to a crew, carry different weights; Rival: 1.5, Neutral: 1, Civilian: 0.5.

    Each pirate has a Kill/Death Ratio attributed to them based on their kills and their deaths (weighted kills divided by deaths). This is the metric that shows a pirate’s PVP level.

    For example, If your weighted kills are 1000 points but you died twice as much, 2000 times, then your KDR will be low (.5), far lower than a pirate who killed 20 pirates but died only 1 time (KDR of 20). This metric determines PVP skill. The higher the KDR the more worth you are to your crew.

    Top PVPers are shown on /crew leaderboard KDR is also shown on your /crew stats page.

    Pirate Kill List

    The pirate kill list shows you the list of the latest victims from a pirate /crew kills [player], here kills are ordered by who is being dominated the most by this pirate, their death count for the victims is listed here.
