Crew in MMO Game Atlas refers to the team of people a Captain forms around themselves in order to sail their ship efficiently. While it is entirely possible to man a ship entirely by oneself, players may find it easier and more enjoyable to hire on people to help. Be careful, though - if your AI crew members are not paid on time, they may start a mutiny against you!
A crew can be formed of real players or AI sailors and pirates, or a mixture of the two.
Optimal size for a crew is 5 or 6 people, but a skilled crew of two can handle a ship if they know what they're doing, and a well-organised team of two can be more efficient than a team of 6 who can't work together. Assemble your crew with care - they could be your saving grace, or what sinks you.
How to Recruit Players to your Crew
Real players can be recruited to your crew at Freeports to fight alongside you and help sail your ship.

How to Recruit AI Crewmen
- Basic Sailors
AI crewmen can be recruited at Freeports.
- Seasoned Sailors
Seasoned sailors may be recruited from 'Army of the Damned' shipwrecks, and can perform more specific functions than novice sailors.
Captains may appoint other players as Lieutenants on their Ship. Lieutenants may direct the AI to fulfil such tasks as adjusting the Sails or firing the Cannons.
