    Just a suggestion that makes it so if the crew leader leaves, it wont make the new crew leader someone who is already AFK. Or if after lets say 10 minutes of being AFK the crew leader will automatically be changed to a new leader.

    Strongly agree, small QoL change but no reason why it shouldn't exist.

    Ahoy, Bonny!

    I couldn't agree more to this post. It's frustrating when your crew leader can't handle the crew, and promptly AFK's. Having to entirely restart a crew can be a hassle along with trying to swooze people into leaving their previous one so the EXP Bonus can be as high as possible.

    I believe that this would be a fantastic Quality of Life change to the game as stated before, and this would definitely help in eliminating some of the active problems that players run into on more populated servers in high-density looting areas.

    Happy Pirating!

    Or also possibly add an option to hand off crew to a specific person who wants to handle it? I have been in crews where crew leader left and the person the crew was handed to wasn’t afk but simply didn’t pay attention to chat or didn’t want to pay attention. Whatever the case may have been, they didn’t manage the crew.

    That could also very well be a way to do it! I've always believed it should be an option for the standing crew leader to be able to hand off the crew to whomever he or she wants, or by electing a First Mate who will automatically take host the crew if the crew leader disconnects.

    I believe we can do that now, but in a long about way as chatting with whomever and asking them to take over. I don't do open sailing, so I assumed the capt. could choose people on the fly.

    Interesting idea! I wonder though how it would handle a crew of all AFK users. Would it (or rather, should it) still switch around every ten minutes?

    I would say if the whole crew is afk, the crew leader would not swap, but once the first player returns, they would get crew lead instead.
