My Crew[]

Under the My Crew, players can manage their Crew, Pets and Ship.

  • In Crew Management, Players can vote to Change the Crew Type between Open Crew or Closed Crew or vote to lock a specific Crew member into the Brig. For these two actions, players need to receive the maximum amount of votes. Players can also choose to Mute a Crewmate's Voice, Text or Phrases chat or to choose whether Friends are allowed to join the Session or not.
  • In Pet Management, Players can dismiss their active Pet back to the Pet Chest.

Players can also vote to Scuttle Ship, which will make the Crew's Ship sink immediately and spawn somewhere else. This decision also needs the maximum amount of votes.

Other Crews[]

Under the Other Crews, players can manage Pirates from other Crews and Ships.

In the Arena Game Mode, Players can see Team Compositions of other Crews, select individual enemy Players and choose to Mute their voice, text or phrases chat.
