    Sailors
    Mostly Harmless
    Scurvy Dogs
    Scoundrels
    Blaggards
    Dread Pirates
    Sea Lords

Thanks for the data, it's useful in judging difficulty of brigands. Do ye know how the equivalent ratings are calculated for human crews?

BUMP.

A worse rating than sailors would be landlubbers, though this currently isn't in the game. Anyone know what the German and Chinese servers have for rankings (translated and not translated)?

Entirely by PvP.



So how is this figured though?


By Sheer Number of PVP's?

By # of Wins?

By # of Wins vs Losses?

Does disengaging during a PVP affect the rating?

Does soloing vs having more crew with you affect the rating?

Does who you are engaged with affect your rating? (ex: Soloing a sloop, if you engage a PVP fight with someone else on a sloop soloing: does that have any more or less affect than Soloing a sloop would against 5 pirates on a sloop? What about 6 pirates on a cutter?)

How does the color of the 'might ring' affect the standing, if at all?

It's figured like any other game rating, you go up more for beating a higher ranked crew *in the same crew rankings* not in the might, disengaging should have a smaller effect but can't confirm that conclusively.

I like the idea of a crew being 'Landlubbers' until they've done a pvp.

Until they been targeted and attacked, or until they actively attack a player?

I don't like that idea.

Neither do I. Any crew that doesn't like that tag can always clear it by doing a PvP with itself – so what's the point?

Why?

If it was directed at me, the answer is this.
Some crews don't activately encourage PvP, and its easy enough to get a PvP bnaver to join for a round, jump on a boat, PvP and then leave the crew.

Second PvP does mean is good, and with all the cheating alts its a dubbous value.
