History

The Beginning

An original backer of Star Citizen, Duox has been following the developments of Star Citizen very intently. The Cosmo Kraken Privateers began back in January 2014. The group settled on privateering and protection services as their focus of operations. From the beginning, the leadership set out to build the finest privateer fleet the galaxy has seen. Membership has consistently increased, with quality members joining daily. Rounds of War Thunder to practice techniques and to build cohesion are commonplace in waiting for further content. With the release of Arena Commander, we have flown together regularly to hone their skills and to provide feedback on development. The Cosmo Kraken Privateers have a Youtube channel, where you can check their exploits with regular updates. A Twitch channel is available where action is regularly streamed.
The future of Star Citizen and the Cosmo Kraken Privateers is as bright as ever.

We are regular gamers, with no hardcore restrictions on our members and no roleplay requirements. All we ask is you uphold our name. We are relatively fluid in our role in the universe as changes occur in the future plans of Star Citizen. We are looking for more quality candidates to join our ranks and share in the glory.

Our Direction

The vision of the Cosmo Kraken Privateers is to work as a band of renegade pilots who will raid, make profit, and have fun. To make this vision a reality, we have established clear, concrete directions. As experienced privateers, we take on dangerous challenges and missions which other organizations shy away from. The Cosmo Kraken Privateers focus in three particular play styles.

  1. Raiding. A great deal of money can be made off those foolish enough to venture into our territory. Those that defy rationality will be ransomed of their goods and lives. The traders and miners who take this risk will have a choice: pay for safe passage or release their cargo. Failure to comply will end in obliteration. Compliance guarantees safe passage.
  1. Defense. Those who are wise choose the Cosmo Kraken Privateers as escorts to protect them to their destination. Our fleet is powerful and capable of handling any variation of threat. The Cosmo Kraken Privateers are fiercely protective of those under their aegis.
  1. Smuggling. The talents and fleet lend themselves to expert smuggling operations. We deal in specialty goods which few others are bold and powerful enough to transport.

As our fleet grows, so too do our ambitions. In the future we may establish their own mining and production systems.

Our Goals

The Cosmo Kraken Privateers are and will continue to be wealthy; that is assured. Our natural talent and prowess earn copious amounts of credits. We set aside some of these profits for achieving more advanced goals. Our current goals include:

  • Obtaining and utilizing a flagship Corvette or higher. We are looking to obtain a capital ship to serve as a flagship for our fleet. It will provide the firepower to take down more entrenched enemies, and will be a rallying point for our fighters, bombers, and other space-superiority gunships.
  • Maintaining a parts insurance fund. The Cosmo Kraken Privateers respect those who lost equipment fighting for our cause, however rare that occurrence may be. Some of our funds will go towards replacing parts that may be too exotic to insure or are high-cost losses.

The Cosmo Kraken Privateers will always strive towards higher plane of achievement. This is only a partial list of what we will and can achieve. The future holds more.

What We Do

The Cosmo Kraken Privateers primary goal is to have fun, by achieving maximum profit and .

We are a band of pirates conducting raids with the intention of making financial gain. Primarily, we target larger-scale operations in groups; taking smaller marks should the opportunity for profit present itself. We make a point of not terrorizing, rather focusing on making maximum profit.

We also function as freelancers. Though the syndicate identifies itself primarily as a band of renegades, we take mercenary jobs provided the credits are good. The Cosmo Kraken Privateers take our commitments very seriously, and will protect their contractor’s cargo as if it were our own.

Cosmo Kraken Privateers also work together in PvE.

How We Operate

All Cosmo Kraken Privateers retain their individualism, and if an operation or raid is not in progress members are free to traverse the galaxy at their pleasure. Membersj are still, however, encouraged to travel in convoys of no less than two ships both for security and strength. A lone pirate is a dead pirate.

Teamwork is important in raids and operations. Members are expected to cooperate and make concerted efforts to play an active role in syndicate activity. We fight smart. In order to succeed, sound strategy will be critical.

.

Who We Recruit

The Cosmo Kraken Privateers’ strength lies in its diversity. Members comes from all backgrounds and walks, their qualification lies in their ability to cooperate. Pirates are held to a certain level of maturity.

Officers are selected very carefully and are expected to go above and beyond the call of an ordinary member. Active members who consistently participate will be rewarded with higher star-levels.

We are regular gamers, based on the East Coast but recruiting members from all timezones. Real life is always the priority. We understand this. We expect members to make an effort to take part in syndicate operations. However, we will not flay you for failure to attend.
