Fleet Captain Application Process FAQ
Because we receive many application forms and many inquiries about the process, we thought that an FAQ would be in order. If you have a question that does not appear here, please do What happens when you receive my application?
We carefully review your application form. We look for well-constructed responses to our questions and a good attitude. Disadvantaged applications would include but are not limited to one or more of the following: excess typos, inappropriate character names, obvious lack of knowledge about the FCB, it's charter and methods. If we feel that you have the qualifications and attitude we are looking for, WE will contact YOU and will begin the second part of our application process. Please do not ICQ us regarding your application.
What is the "second part" of the application process?
We will contact you via icq and attempt to get to know you better. We may ask you to join a chat with us. We will also want to come visit your home shard so that we may verify the information you submitted to us. This process may take a few days, it may take a week. After this we will make our decision.
Why does this sound a job application?
A Fleet Captain must be able to fulfill our wishes and sail their Fleet with professionalism and skill. Like customer service representatives, they have the ability to affect player's perceptions of the FCB positively or negatively. We wish the FCB to become as widely known and respected. If that means carefully screening applicants to ensure we choose the best person to represent the FCB on their shard, so be it!
When you ask what resources I have, what are you looking for?
Believe it or not, a house and money to buy a guild stone. Just having a boat is not enough.
Do I have to be a Grandmaster or Legendary Fisher to apply for Fleet Captain?
We prefer it. Your "new" fisher members will tend to look up to you for guidance and advice on fishing, being a Grandmaster or higher and having the experience of "getting there" will help. This does not mean we will not consider applicants with a good attitude and the right resources yet having a low fishing skill.
First and foremost, Fleet Captain applicants must read the FCB charter and agree to uphold it.
