Ahoy, me hearties!
From now on all ‘whitebait’ may join an Academy within a Brotherhood to hone their skills, gain new knowledge and experience, and become an integral part of Brotherhood life. If your black heart desires your name written alongside the other heroes of the Seven Seas, now is the time to join a powerful Brotherhood!
Go to your Brethren Court, and click “Join Now”. If you haven’t decided which Brotherhood or Academy to apply for, click “Join random Brotherhood” at the bottom of the screen.
From now on all Brotherhood Leaders are empowered to start a Brotherhood Naval Academy in which to train potential Crewmen. Customize your Brotherhood Settings to automatically place candidates in your region and language who are looking for a Brotherhood to join. You may allocate associations between key Brotherhood Members and Cadets in the Academy as your black hear desires, and customize its size and recruitment parameters. Don't let the enemy enlist potential new talent before you! This is first-come, first-served... so start your Academy Now!
Go to your Brethren Court, open the “My Brotherhood” tab and click the “Brotherhood Settings,” then enter the required level for joining your Academy, preferred language, and the number of Brotherhood Membership slots you allot as training space for Cadets.
Cadet is a newly added rank which allows Brotherhood Leaders to train low-level players under the watchful eye of salty Captains. The Brethren Court has also voted to add another 2 Ranks – Ambassador and Scout. These permit no special new abilities, but will allow you to designate Brotherhood Members to conduct diplomacy and gather intelligence.
NEW STATISTICS TAB AT YOUR EMBASSY
If you wear a tattered eye patch, it does not mean you should close the other eye on what is happening in your Brotherhood. You know Pirates - cannot trust any of those sneaky old salts! From now on Brotherhood Commanders or the one entrusted with such authority can easily keep track of other Brotherhood members' units. Find out about your fellow Captains’ units from the Brethren Court without filling up Excel tables, spread-sheets or any other forms!
If you are a Brotherhood Leader or designated to that position, go to your Brethren Court, open the "My Brotherhood" tab and look at the "Statistics" Section. Click the “Brotherhood Settings” icon and select which ranks are entrusted to view Brotherhood Statistics. All empowered Captains can view Statistics in the following way:
1. Go to the “Brethren Court” and open the “My Brotherhood” tab.
2. Click the “Statistics” section and choose information you wish displayed.
Here you can choose which type of Units you wish to view - Offense, Defense, or Scouting - and see the number of Units your crew possesses, their total Offense/Defense, how many Units they gained or lost during the previous week, and some additional information!
Take off your tattered eye patch and watch your Brotherhood like the biggest treasure across the Seven Seas!
