Experienced Captain

In order to help preserve the in-game economy several checks have been implemented to determine whether your character is truly a new player or is an "Experienced Captain." Players that are labeled an "experienced captain" cannot earn resources or experience in Grey Sectors. A player will be deemed an "experienced captain" if:

  • His character reaches Level 15
  • His character is associated with other characters that have earned Levels between 0 and 15.

If you believe your character has been inappropriately labeled an "Experienced Captain," please contact the Staff at [email protected] with a list of ALL of your accounts.
