Welcome to the official Sky Pirates website!

Sky Pirates {arr} is a clan of players for the game Altitude. We are a small 'casual pro' clan concentrating purely on the ball game mode.

'Casual pro' in our case means that we take the game seriously and try to be as good in it as we can (thus pro), but our training times and amounts vary a lot depending our real lives (thus casual).

Sky Pirates was formed by two enthusiastic brothers, {arr}Gemi and {arr}D4rt, when they started playing the game in late 2009. The clan has kept quiet for a couple of months while both have been training their flying, killing and scoring skills, but now the clan is finally ready to announce its existence and start recruiting more 'casual pro' ball players with the aim of building a functioning and well trained team to challenge the other ball clans.

If you are interested in the clan, its members or recruitment please head out to the members page.





{arr} ball tournament

Gemi has revealed his plans to hold a high quality ball tournament in the close future. All established ball clans should stay tuned for more information.



Victory! Yarr!

Sky Pirates has ensured their victory over all other clans in SkyLeague and is now officially the best ball clan!
That being said others are very close to us and especially tV0 offers a very even competition. We are looking forward to future games.



Long time no news

Appologies for such a long interval between news. It's been a busy time for the web admin (Gemi) so the website has been lacking updates.
SkyLeague has gone well and we are currently one match away from league victory. Our latch match is against tV0 and the winner of that match wins the entire league.
We also have a new website under construction. Thanks to Wolfey for his work on it.



Status update

The clan has taken it a bit slowly the past two weeks, training their skills, leveling up ACE ranks and spending time with irl things.
The SkyLeague is closing in (starts at 3rd April) and thus clan activities will start again this week. All members plese see our forums and let us know of your availability in the SkyLeague.



Matches against {aV0} and {ball*}

This evening we had an unscehduled match against {aV0} and a scheduled match against {ball*}.
The first match went surprisingly easily with {aV0} losing all maps. There is a new scheduled match tomorrow.
The second match started quite badly with a lose streak of 3 maps against {ball*}. After that we got our team working and ended up tied 3-3 in map wins.



Fake members

As usual when people start to recognize you the fake members jump in. We have now banned the first faker and will continue to do so.
Please let us know if you see any other players trying to fake being our member. Only those players listed on our site are real members.
For a full list of bans please see our server page.



Second training against {ball}

We played our second training game against {ball} and did quite well.
First 4 maps were played 6v6 and map wins were tied 2-2. The last map was played 5v5 and we lost.
See the gallery for participants and round results.



Recruitment opened

We have had a lot of interested players asking for a possibility to join {arr} after recruitment was closed a few days ago.

We have now decided to open a recruitment clan, Arr friends {arf}. {arf} is meant for those who are eager to join us and acts as a training and recruitment clan from now on. Members of {arf} can participate in training and some matches with {arr} members and will be asked to join {arr} if they prove their skills and attitude. All {arf} members are regularly told what their status is so that they know how close to getting into {arr} they might be and what they need to improve.



Forums opened

Private forums for our members have been opened. Please visit http://z7.invisionfree.com/arr/ and register.
After registering let Gemi know and he will approve your account.



Recruitment closed

We are now at 9 members and have closed recruitment. If we have given you an invitation earlier then it is still open.
Exceptionally skilled players, especially Explodet flying ones, might still be considered.

Second training match
