    Its been 1 year and 6 months since the wonderful PaulOnFire made his own list back in January of 2017. Old list can be found -> here <-
    This list serves as a reference point, and comparison to the PMC of 1 year 6 months ago. I’ve tried to include as many crews as I can (I’m not doing all 243).

    Enjoy.

    ——————————————————————————————————————–

    Some key points before I start (very similar to Paul’s original post):

    1. This is based off data from the 16th July 2018. It is entirely possible that people have changed crews, come back from inactivity, or founded new crews in the meantime.
    2. The crews are ranked according to number of active players
    3. ‘Active players’ count as any players that were active in the last 30 days
    4. Some crew descriptions from the last list have been carried forward, as long as they are still relevant and/or the exact same crew
    5. I have tried to avoid 1 or 2 man crews, such as my own, and will only be including a few that are of mention
    6. The crew names are spelt as they are in-game, including typos and spacing issues. I might have types some of the player names wrong, but please don’t rip my head off because of that.
    7. There are a LOT of crews I don’t know anything about. Feel free to post more information below!

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    • Terminology (these are my definitions, not official ones):
      • ‘Empire/Kingdom’ – A generally peaceful crew with anti-pirate intentions; featuring a distinctive government or leadership system, split into mostly the ruling class, generals and officials, and common folk
      • ‘Empire – esque’ – A generally peaceful crew with characteristics of empire crews, but who give more control to the non-leaders, or have a completely separate system. These are usually considered pretty chill crews.
      • ‘Collective crew’ – A crew with mixed intentions, whereby almost every member has an input in running the crew. There isn’t much in the form of hierarchy – mostly group decisions.
      • ‘Pirate crew’ – A crew with either anti-empire crew intentions, stealing and pillaging, or working as hired mercenaries. They are usually the smallest crews, but are seen as the greatest threat to peace for empire crews. There are some exceptions.
      • ‘Mafia crew’ – An organized international body of criminals that work together to achieve common goals.
      • If it just says ‘crew’ then the crew either doesn’t fit any of those descriptions above, or I just don’t know. I don’t want endless terms used; that can wait for another post :I

    Last thing to add from me personally:

    People complain a lot that the likes of TAS and CLTN run the server – but they don’t exclusively. Yes, TAS have a lot of rich players, they can exert a lot of power on the economy, they have good connections to strong pvpers with which they can attack or defend others depending on if it’s in their interests.

    But in terms of activity, TAS are slowing down a bit as their members leave for uni, out of boredom, or other irl things. Just look at CLTN for example; 6 months ago they were a true force to be reckoned with having a very active crew consisting of pvpers. But now, you could say their glory days are over. This has and will make way for new crews to compete for the ‘we rule the server’ cup.

    There are usually 2 or 3 big crews that will at any one point be seen as the main ‘rulers’ of the server – whether that be controlling the eco, controlling land, or putting pressure on people by raiding them – and they usually don’t get along. 3 and a half years ago when I first joined, the Elven Empire and Red Lotus were the two main ‘big’ crews and fought each other; after a couple of months this changed to the British Empire and the Outlaws.

    Over time, crews such as the Elven Empire, Crusaders of the Void, Delta, Enigma, Verussian Empire, JuiceKings, Coalition, Templar, and Forsaken have all been in this ‘top 3’ at one point. Some were only there for a short time such as Delta, some were there much longer such as the British Empire. But after enough time, even the largest crews fall apart.

    In short, if you dream of running a huge empire-like crew spanning over the whole world, or just want to create an island to help deckhands; don’t be intimidated by these larger ‘more powerful crews’. I mean, if DEK and the new EM can do it, then anyone can do it.

    —————————————————————————————————————————–

    And the very last thing I’d like to say – thank you to DEK and several other growing crews who are recruiting deckhands like mad after they join. Its really nice to see, and gives them much more incentive to stay on and fight for you. Almost all of the large crews on this list started by recruiting every single deckhand they could find. Some left sure, but many more stayed and helped them grow. Last time i saw this scale of deckhand recruiting was 3 years ago while BE and EE competed for ‘who has the most members’.

    I agree with Max that’s it really nice to see brand new, active crews emerging.  It mixes things up nicely and means that newer players have a chance to become rich and powerful. It’s certainly much harder to join the ranks of powerful players than it was, and these new crews are changing that. Kudos to them.

    PLEASE port to the Wiki with a date on it, so it wont get lost forever 🙂

    We could have a master page on the Wiki of active crew lists, then link to this on its own Wiki page.

    -Added all crews you’ve put up to active crew list (put some queries, mainly just about name confirmation, also Chailey’s crew might need it’s own new category -because I can’t have a bloody crew called ‘chailey’ which takes you to his profile)

    -Started adding basic info to each crew, takes a lot of time to keep copying and pasting so I’ll find some time to do that repetitive task.

    -Added new ‘stencil’ area, so people can put basic formats in, not at all because I’m a lazy bugger who copies and pastes formatting.

    Great work, Max.

    Thanks for including Verussia. I, in fact, had no idea there were that many members, albeit how limited they still are.
