This page will walk you through the application process for Krypted Gaming.
The Right Fit
Before you apply, we highly encourage you to read a little bit about our community and other groups you may be interested in. We have found that players who research all of their options and make educated decisions end up enjoying their time here a lot more and stick around for years to come.
There are many places to learn about us,
- Our blog posts, guides, and other articles
- Official videos, player videos, videos involving us
- In-game statistics like zKillboard
Ultimately, a little research goes a long way- and saves a ton of time in the long run!
Because we’ve been playing together for many years, most of our community is composed of veteran players. Due to this, some of our ships can be a little intense- especially when you’re flying around a 1.6 billion ISK Bhaalgorn as your mainline.
Below is a set of minimum expectations that will ensure that you enjoy your time in our group.
- Well-skilled primary character. You’ll want to make sure you have strong meta choices for your chosen role. For example, logistics you’ll want a Guardian and Basilisk- and Logistics Cruisers V. Pop in our Discord to ask about what we’re currently flying- it’s constantly shifting.
- Second utility character. This may be a scanning character, Sabre alt, or utility combat character. In wormhole space, you’ll really suffer without a utility character. We also frequently escalate with our secondary characters.
- Frequently active. Typically daily (barring real life) is the best fit for our group- it’s hard to improve at the game if you’re only online once per week.
If you’re lacking in the skill point department, we typically push you towards high impact force multipliers, since most of these are easy to start with a lifetime to master. Some examples of these are:
- Command destroyers (booshing, nanogang, etc)
- Electronic warfare ships (Kitsune, Keres, battleship EWAR)
- Tackle (Sabres, Interceptors, HICs)
If you want to learn more about being effective in a fleet as a new pilot, check out this guide.
For newer players looking to join, if you don’t already have a second account, you should create one (use a recruit a friend link) and start training it before applying. We’ll show you how to use it!
1. Create an Authentication Account
Krypted Authentication is our custom web application to manage our community.
We use it to automatically sync permissions and groups, manage all of our community processes, and track in-game activity to provide useful insights.
2. Create an Application
Some groups in our community are closed, like EVE Online and Rust, and require an application.
- Click Applications on the authentication website
- Click Apply for the group you’d like to apply to
- Fill out your application
After you’ve submitted your application, let us know in our #public channel and we’ll DM you for the next steps. Typically we take strong applicants on a few roams to see if they mesh well with our culture.
Interviews act as another layer to increase retention and ensure that players are a good fit for us. They are less common, typically we just take you on a handful of fleets.
They’re very relaxed, and mostly just answering your questions!
If you need help at any time through this process, join our Discord and ask.
