Founded in July of 2018, The Pirate Council started with long standing communities found on the Sea of Thieves Forum.
Our founders consisted of:
Blackwater Buccaneers (fka The Blue Devils)
Fleet of Thieves (nka Grizzly)
Freemen of Nassau
The Thirsty Thieves
Since its inception TPC has grown to form a larger coalition of several organizations within the Sea of Thieves Community. We all share a common passion for the game. Over time, more fleets were invited to participate, adding extensive experience, events, manpower and resources that helped create some of the most entertaining Sea of Thieves content. With the guidance of several deckhands, boatswains and the beginnings of a connection to RARE, The Pirate Council began to flourish as a civic service the game really needed.
As with all games, interest can deteriorate over time and some crews lost their passion for the game and moved on. However, as of October 2019, The Pirate Council is the single largest coalition of individual groups focused on Sea of Thieves and has 35+ individual contributing fleets and creators representing 70,000+ Sea of Thieves players. This includes 6 major tournaments / events and over 1000 subscribers on its YouTube channel.
Purpose & Vision
TPC presents a united front providing events, knowledge and assistance to the Sea of Thieves community. With people from around the world bringing different perspectives, skills and insight, we believe that we can influence the tides and bring a positive and impactful experience for our own community members and the larger Sea of Thieves Community. General goals are to better the community through interaction with each other, and showcasing positive in-game events that we hold (like En Garde, Skullball, Grand Odyssey etc.) as well as our public outreach on Social Media and the Sea of Thieves Forum.
Our vision is to unite as many communities as possible under one name while maintaining a group of respectful, honorable, and truthful members that will provide the highest level of professionalism within The Pirate Council. These individual representatives will work within the alliance, using our discord server to communicate and work with each other to meet our combined goals of development or community behavior and events. It will be a priority to ensure that our allied community is a safe and entertaining place to be competitive and support member’s endeavors both in public outreach and community events.
We, the community leaders of the Sea of Thieves, in order to establish a method of communication between all fleets and communities free from any bias, promote the general welfare of both the game and its community in a healthy, positive and respectful manner; and adhere to the very principle of equality between all. The members of the Pirate Council are committed to excellence in providing a positive impact on the Sea of Thieves community through our PvP/PvE events using multi-fleet/individual cooperation, our public outreach on the Sea of Thieves forum, as well as our Social Media Platforms.
