Fleet of Thieves
Welcome to the page that will fulfill all of your dreams and curiosities about becoming a higher-ranking individual on Fleet of Thieves. Before you rank up, you have to meet the prerequisites of the rank. Every rank in this document has the requirements listed for you to rank up. Once you meet the prerequisites, do /promote in #bot-commands along with a screenshot of your faction levels. For all of the Fleet member ranks, all you have to do to rank up is meet these requirements and post a screenshot in #bot-commands. In order to be promoted to Officer status, you must submit an application. These applications can be found in our member portal on the website. Spots aren't always open, but applications are! Feel free to apply any time and you will go in the queue. The prerequisites are simply designed around you naturally being an active and caring member of the game and the clan.

All officers start off as a Boatswain Junior. Each officer rank has three tiers, until you get to Pirate Captain. Pirate Captain only has two tiers. Every rank after that has no tiers, it is just the supervisory role itself. Our promotion system is organized, and requires you to meet eligibility as well as test for it. Doing promotions this way helps us eliminate bias and lets people shine.

The ranks Commodore and above are purely management and administrative, and have ultimate say when they are needed in situations that call for them. The highest rank that should be needed day-to-day in the clan is Pirate Captain. To compare the fleet to a business, imagine Commodore+ as district managers/corporate staff and Boatswain+ as store managers.

Rank Hierarchy


Clarification for ranking up: “Faction levels must equal X” means your faction levels to rank up can be any combination of numbers to equal at least the number required. For 50, it could be 20-20-10, 15-15-20, 10-0-40, it is completely up to how you decide to level yourself up.
