What is Streaking?[edit | edit source]

A Streak is a series of consecutive battles, started when you immediately recruit your crew after attacking a Rival Captain’s Island (PvP match) and go straight into the next fight without returning to your island. A Streak ends when you return to your island.

Purpose of Streaks[edit | edit source]

Chest Farming
The biggest benefit to Streaking is that it allows the player to acquire chests at a rather fast rate. Outside of Exploration Map battles, chests are the only way to gather the items necessary to upgrade your stock of Legendary Pirates. Chest Farming entails getting chests in the most efficient way possible. This Guide is based on this principle.

Streaking while in a rumble is a good way to help increase your score as the Grog, recruit time and Gem reduction allows you to perform cheaper, quicker raids than what would be possible by doing them individually. This bonus however comes at the price of you being unable to refill your Guild Ship troops, so use them wisely.

Streak (Victory) Bands[edit | edit source]

As you increase the amount of wins in your streak you will tier up to different Streak Bands. Each Streak Band brings progressively lower recruiting costs in terms of Grog, time and Gems. Your Victory Band will reset once you leave a Streak, as will the recruitment costs.

Streak Buffs[edit | edit source]

As long as you get at least 1 Star on an island you get a new Streak Buff at the start of each battle. Streak Buffs include boosts to particular Pirate types, reduction in ability wait times, bonuses to looted Gold, Grog and extra BP as well as enhancements such as increase damage done to Walls and certain defenses. Each buff also has a number beneath it that shows how many battles it will be active for. The number decreases by 1 after each attack.

Like Chests, each buff has 5 rarities. The higher the rarity the bigger the increases are:
Red: Common
Green: Uncommon
Blue: Rare
Purple: Epic
Orange: Legendary

Each unit has a buff available to them that can increase their Toughness or Damage dealt. Every unit that has an ability can also receive a buff to reduce the cool-down time for it. You can click on the buff icon in the Streak Buffs or Streak Summary screen and it will display the name and what it does. The main symbol in the middle of the icon indicates the type of unit that receives the buff and there’s also a smaller symbol that shows what stat is being increased or decreased.
