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 Doubloons. 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 (Icon_reward_clanResource.png), 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 hierarchically:

Rank Permissions
Commander Can build structures on the clan Naval Base, see the amount of Oil (Icon_reward_clanResource.png) obtained by clan members with hidden statistics, edit the clan name, tag, and description, modify the rank of clan members, send invites and accept applications, remove members, disband the clan, etc. Can form divisions for Clan Battles.
Executive Officer Has the same permissions as the Commander, except cannot remove the Commander or other Executive Officers, or disband the clan.
Recruiter Can send invitations and accept applications to the clan. Can form divisions for Clan Battles.
Commissioned Officer No permissions.
Line Officer No permissions.
Midshipman No permissions.
