Clans are player managed organizations that exist within the game client. Players can join a clan at no cost - however, they must apply or be invited. If a player so chooses, he or she can start a clan for 2,500 . Though there is no requirement to be in a clan, membership carries benefits. Besides allowing for faster communication through the clan-chat interface, members benefit from in-game perks provided by developing structures within the clan's Naval Base. These structures are built using Oil (), which is a clan-specific resource earned by members for simply playing the game. Additionally, membership in a clan allows for players to partake in the Clan Battles game mode.
Clans are structured in hierarchal order:
|Commander||Can build structures on the clan Naval Base, see the amount of Oil () obtained by clan members who hid their statistics, edit the clan name, tag, and description, modify the positions of clan members, send invites and accept applications to the clan, remove players from the clan, disband the clan.|
|Executive Officer||Has the same permissions as the Commander, with the exception that they cannot remove the Commander or other Executive Officers from the clan.|
|Recruiter||Can send invites and accept applications to the clan.|
|Line Officer||No permissions.|
Starting a Clan

Once satisfied, click "Create Clan." Keep in mind that starting a clan requires doubloons. The normal cost to start a clan is 2,500 .
