Whatever Floats Yer Boat (training alliance for the 6 Ship Armada)

Newly created training alliance for the 6 Ship Armada. New players, veterans, and everyone in between welcome to join and possibly fill an opening on one of the other Ships. Have a small alliance and looking to merge? Bring them all over, we have plenty of room!

Climb aboard!

@zephyr1 Possible merge? :slight_smile:

6 Ship Armada Wants You!

@ThePirateKing Looks like they’re different alliances, just in the same family. :slight_smile:

Oh okay, that’s cool. I thought family alliances had a single thread. My bad. :slight_smile:

Most do, since it’s more effective for recruiting. But the rule is technically 1 thread per alliance, so I think it’s fine if people want each alliance in the family to have a separate thread — even though it’s typically less effective.

@Adisty you may want to consider sticking to a single thread, as the Forum ranks threads based on :heart:, comments, and views, which are all aided by having one thread for your whole alliance family instead of a separate one for each individual alliance.

Sorry about that. Shala, the OP for Ship Happens no longer plays and handed me the leader role, so all I can do is reply to it to bump it up.

Whatever Floats Yer Boat is completely new and I wanted a thread specifically for recruiting for it.

The 6 Ship thread needed to be updated as we lost contact with one of the ships mentioned in the original post and we added WFYB.

Not sure what the forum rank has to do with a single thread versus multiple threads though?


Still have 9 spots available!

Sorry for my delayed reply, I missed the original notification.

Having a single thread consolidates the :heart:, comments, and views, which increases the visibility of the thread. Threads are “ranked” by the Forum software, so the more activity a single thread has, the higher it sorts in the “Top” and “Suggested” lists.

Alliance families have typically had more success getting a single thread to have a lot of activity (and thus rank higher and be more visible) than trying to get a separate thread for each alliance in the family to get a lot of activity.

But either approach is allowed for alliance families — one thread for each of the alliances in the family, or one thread for all of them together.

Still have 5 open spots, fighting 4 and 5 * titans

Still have rooms available for 4 more people

Had a few come and go. 4 spots available

We’ve swabbed the deck and updated participation requirements. 7 spots open, taking down 6* titans. All we ask is that you hit at least 3 titans a week, use a minimum of 3 war flags or opt out, and be active (3 days inactivity without prior notice and you’ll walk the plank, but you can always rejoin when you come back). War flag minimums do not apply to newer accounts (under level 20). This is a place to grow and learn for newbies and veterans alike.

Got plenty of room here for newer accounts. No cup or TP minimums, no titan requirements (though strongly suggested), war is optional (also suggested). Just stay active and grow. Happy to teach new players and offer advice for older accounts. Move up to stronger alliances in the family when you get strong enough.

Hi there.
So ‘Floats’ is the first of six from a family? What is the name of the next tier up alliance?

I’m not sure Floats would suit me, I’m not a beginner, but I haven’t participated in AW (Raids actually get on my t**s but each to their own). I like hitting Titans and usually use any flags unless I think it’s getting late and hitting it will be a waste of time. Not too keen on hitting 9 &10* though.

What titans are Floats hitting? 6* would be good.


Floats is only hitting 3s at the moment (very low level/less active players). What’s your team situation look like? The next step up is Ship Happens, but we’re currently full. We have room on the Ironclad, and while we’re hitting 9s and 10s, as long as you hit it your totals don’t matter much. The Calypso is hitting 10s and 11s, I’ll have to check on Twisted Gull and get back with you, and the Black Pearl is the main alliance hitting 12s and 13s.

Hi, Already joined an alliance, were hitting 9s & 10s unfortunately, with mixed results. Wars aren’t fun either so I might opt out of that.

I’ll keep a look out in future for Ship Happens, I think it might have been a better choice for me but nevermind :slight_smile:

My teams are okay I guess, I have a few maxed 5*s (Alice, Kingston) I just need to use them properly lol.

Thanks for taking time to reply.

Anytime! If you find your new home isn’t a good fit, we’ve got room for ya somewhere :wink:

Still have room for 16, taking all level of accounts
