Pirates of the Caribbean Online Explained: Guilds
A guild is a group of pirates, sharing their guild name, and leaderboard stats. Like Adolf Hitler’s third reich, a guild is very much a dictatorship. Each guild has a Guildmaster, which controls all aspects of the guild. To Kick any member of the guild at will, and as many at once as he pleases, promote and demote members, invite new pirates to the guild, name the guild, and create invitations. Each guild has it’s own channel for chat which only members of the guild have access to.
Each pirate’s individual leaderboard statistics are combined to create the guild’s.
i.e. T S U N A M I consist of 3 members; Jason Dreadfury, Johnny and Captain Nick. On July 24th, 2015, Jason Dreadfury defeats 2,000 enemies and sinks 300 ships, Johnny defeats 10,000 enemies, sinks 10 ships, and wins 40 hands in blackjack, while Captain Nick sinks 600 ships, wins 15 matches of mayhem PvP, and goes to jail 3 times!
T S U N A M I’s stats for July 24th, 2015 would be:
|Enemies Defeated||Ships Sunk||Blackjack Hands Won||Poker Hands Won||Times in Jail||PvP Mayhem Wins||PvP Team Battle Wins|
Guild’s consist of the following member ranks:
There can only be one Guildmaster. The Guildmaster is by default the founder of the guild, however, the rank can be appointed to another member. When done, the former Guildmaster will automatically be demoted to the rank of Officer.
The Guildmaster has the abilities to name the guild, invite new members, kick anyone, promote and demote a member’s rank and create invitation codes.
Unlike Officers, there is no limit to the amount of Members the Guildmaster can kick per day.
There is no limit to the amount of Officers a guild can have.
Officers have the ability to invite new members, kick Veterans and Members, and create invitation codes.
Officers can only kick up to 5 people a day.
There is no limit to the amount of Veterans a guild can have.
Veterans have the ability to invite new members and create invitations codes.
This is the default rank for any new member joining a guild.
Members have no special abilities.
A guild by default’s name is “Pirate Guild [#of guild created]”.
i.e. Jason Dreadfury created the first guild in Pirates of the Caribbean Online. The guild’s given default name would be “Pirate Guild 1”.
A guild can only be renamed once.
Guild names are unique, no two guilds can have the same name.
When requesting a guild name, a moderator must approve the name. If a name is rejected, the Guildmaster will have the opportunity to request another name, and can keep doing so until a name is approved.
A pirate’s guild’s name is located beneath the player’s name.
