For those that play the Pirates application in MySpace, or any of the apps for that matter, growing your crew is an essential if you want to advance in the game. However, that doesn’t seem the easiest thing to do. You send messages, you send bulletins, you ask your friends, and yet you watch your crew look smaller and smaller when compared to your competitors on the fight page.
There is a solution. When you go to the fight page, click on the name of a pirate that seems interesting. When their stat page pulls up, click on their name again to go to their MySpace page. Once there, send a friend request with a brief note that you wish to join Pirate crews.
Once they accept your request, check your bulletins to find their “Join My Pirate Crew” bulletin, and click on the link to join their Pirate crew. You will be taken to a page to accept their crew request. If you cannot locate their Pirate bulletin, send them a personal message asking them to either post a bulletin or to click on the link in one of yours.
Another method is to go to all of your Pirate friends and ask them to post a bulletin with your contact details and a request for all the Pirates players to add you. There are also several webpages that state that they will help you to increase your crew, but in my experience, the only thing you get is a bunch of adds and empty promises.
Avoid the websites that promise to promote you and increase your Pirate crew, and use the simple steps of requesting new friends for the Pirates application, and you will get all the crew you are willing to work for. Just remember you may also get some who play more than one game, so you will get numerous requests to join other games. If you are only interested in playing Pirates, this method may not be for you.
You can also earn or purchase favors from Davey Jones and redeem them for more crew. If you decide to earn favors by completing a selection of offers, be prepared for your inbox to overflow, and to not get all of the points to which you feel entitled. Some will say that if you complete a simple survey you will get these points – but after you have answered the question or two you will be forced to spend several minutes clicking “no” on all of the offers you don’t want – a definite annoyance!
I am personally accepting all comers to the Pirates app, so if you want to build your crew you can visit me at www.myspace.com/annienygma. Just please make sure to have a recent bulletin posted for the Pirates app for a quick add!
