We are happy to present the first part of the Brotherhood Interview series, dedicated to the best Cloud Pirates Brotherhoods out there. Without further ado, we are proud to introduce the interview with the currently best Cloud Pirate Brotherhood: REKT!
When did you create your Brotherhood and who founded it?
Day 1 of early access (February 9th). It was founded by Razer and two long time players from recent closed betas, Floriano and Decadence.
How did you get your name?
Back in the closed betas we dominated everyone, so we needed to have a suitable tag. Decadence came up with the edgy tag "Rekt" and then "Erektile dysfunction" was born.
Who is your leader and how does your ranking system work?
Razer is the leader. New recruits start out as a trial and then become a member if they are successful. Only the most aroused captains become an Officer!
How many of you are in the Brotherhood?
We have around 35 members. With 5 more spots open for fresh blood!
Cloud Pirates is a fairly new game. How did you find it and why did you decide to settle down in it?
I found out about Cloud Pirates in late 2016, before the closed betas had even started. I was hooked once I had played a couple games. From that point I have been honing my skills and now run the most successful Brotherhood.
On which activities do you focus at the moment?
We mainly focus on the rated 7v7 aspect of the game, but enjoy grouping throughout the day.
Are you recruiting and if so, what are the requirements and the recruitment process?
We are always recruiting! Being the #1 Brotherhood, requirements are a lot higher than others. But generally you need at least one Tier 4, be online for 7v7 rated battles and lastly be really good on your preferred ship(s).
Did you have any special moments/experiences in Cloud Pirates?
Probably just dominating every brotherhood in 7v7 since it came out.
If you’d give a ship a name - what would it be?
Captivator - a ship that pulls one or everyone together.
If you could add one feature to the game, what would it be?
Custom lobbies so that we can play custom games with rules or play against different brotherhoods.
Do you have members that stream, make videos or write about Cloud Pirates?
We have guides on the forum from a couple of our members and also someone who makes youtube videos.
What are you offering to your members?
Erectile dysfunction self-help groups. Just kidding. We offer the highest competitive level in the game, daily groups, weekly 7v7 brotherhood rewards and an active discord server.
Final question: what message do you want to get to other Cloud Pirates players and Brotherhoods?
There is no pay to win, once you hit Tier 4, you have access to the most powerful ships and equipment in the game. Don't let the ranking system fool you. Although a rough indicator of your skill level, and your general success in battle, the ranking will not display your macro game or your ability to work as a team. Play the game. Have fun. Play with your friends, or make new ones. Plunder on, and don't get rekt!
