What is False Flag?
False Flag is a fleet looking to recruit a moderately sized group of pirates to pillage and plunder in Sea of Thieves.
What is False Flag's focus?
Our main focus at this time is simply on recruiting kind, like-minded individuals to join with us. Respect will be one of the most important aspects of the fleet, but we will also be putting focus on PvP/PvE content, as well as a handful of roleplaying as the game develops and allows for more roleplay scenarios, etc.
Why should I join?
We plan on putting emphasis on the family/friends feeling. Our goal here is to not become so large that everyone seems a stranger, but rather keep the fleet on a relatively small scale so that every member knows one another and has a deeper connection with crewmates! To add to this question, however, our primary members have been playing Sea Of Thieves since the beginning and have much experience under our belt. We have no problem teaching new players the ropes and welcoming them to this wonderful world.
Are there any requirements to join?
Currently our only requirements be as follows:
***All new pirates who wish to join must post on this thread, making sure to tag me @Capta1n-Cr0ss or @Hidrapond in the post so that it alerts us via notification. Please state why you wish to join and tell us a little about yourself.
Must be 18 years of age or older
Have a working microphone [Some exceptions will be made if someone is really interested but cannot speak for good reason]
Respect every crew member, regardless of position or title
Always follow through with orders from the vessels Captain
I am interested, how do I join?
If you feel like False Flag would be a good fit for you, please leave a post on this thread giving some details about yourself and why you wish to join. Make sure to tag myself, @Capta1n-Cr0ss or @Hidrapond so that we are notified of your interest in joining. Once you've posted here, you will receive a link to the discord via the forum chat.

Tells us a bit about you:
I've contacted someone about joining, now what?
In order to keep true to our ways and ensure each member is close, we will not be accepting every request to join. Once you've announced an interest in joining, we will take you on a trial run or two in-game to see how you click with the crew.
Greenie -- Also known as a 'Greenhorn'. These are members who have simply voiced an interest in joining the fleet, and as far as we know, have little-to-no experience on the ocean. These members must get in contact with myself [Capta1n Cr0ss] and sail with me in order to pass through this rank to a fully-fledged member, also known as 'Pirate' rank.
Pirate -- The meat and bones of the fleet. This is where the majority of our members will be in terms of rank. That's not to say you're not invaluable to the fleet, because you are. You're the men and women who will be crewing our vessels and ensuring all the work that's required aboard them and from your commanding officers gets done. Without you, there are no pirates. Without pirates, what the hell are we doing here?
Bosun -- also knows as 'Boatswain' .
This rank is filled by men and women with aspirations to become Quartermasters and higher. The bosun will always be ready to execute the orders of higher ranked officers as fast as possible, and will always communicate with the crew. The members of this role have shown that they are active members of the fleet, both in game and discord. To become a Bosun, a pirate who has proven themselves worthy, members must be nominated by a First mate or Captain. Currently this is the only rank that is decided by the votes of higher ranked members and mods.
Quartermaster -- This rank is generally reserved for members of the fleet who have proven their worth. These are the members who don't need to be told what to do most of the time. The ones who adjust the angle of the sails without being told, the ones who are always ready to drop anchor at a moments notice, and the ones who are always on the island clanking their shovels against that beloved booty. Quartermasters are selected by a Captain, from the Bosun ranked members; so it is a privilege to be bestowed this rank.
First Mate -- Similar to Quartermaster, but a step up. First Mate's are once again chosen by those of the 'Captain' role, and will become the right hand of said Captain. These fine lads and lasses are the ones you'll all be taking orders from when the ship Captain is MIA or not aboard the ship. The care of the ship falls into this roles hands at that moment, so should anything happen, know it is your responsibility. Here in False Flag we frown upon being sunk, so make sure that ship stays afloat at all times!
Captain -- The men and women who have proven their ability in all aspects of the game, but beyond that, have what it takes to command a vessel on the open ocean. This role is NOT for slackers of any kind. Falling into this role means being able to take control of any and all situations. Take care of your crew, take care of your ship - respect will follow, and your crew will follow you to the ends of the earth. Captains are only assigned by myself [Capta1n Cr0ss]. There is a current goal to have the Captain rank at 5 men or less. Once more Captains have come to their rank, a voting system will be created for the fleet. Each Captain will get a single vote in extremely important fleet matters, where the majority votes wins favour [rarely any exceptions]
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please leave a post here tagging myself or @Hidrapond. If you do not wish to post them here, then please feel free to message us privately! Thank you, and we'll see you on the seas!
