Creator Crew FAQ

What is the Sea of Thieves Creator Crew?
The Crew is more than just a group of talented, good-looking pirates, it’s a hub we’ve created to encourage and reward the best efforts of the community. We want to support all our creative players, however, they choose to tell their stories, and we’ll be exploring ways to bring in other types of content creation in the future!

Who can join the Creator Crew?
The Creator Crew is open to all players residing in a country in which Sea of Thieves is currently available. It’s free to join and open to anyone who wants to create Sea of Thieves content showcasing their talents and ideas, or simply share their unique Sea of Thieves stories with the rest of the community.

Do I need to be an established creator?
Not at all. The Crew exists to support and expand our creative community, so you can sign up with a  Twitch channel (we’re looking at ways to broaden this in future) even if you have no followers.

How do I join?
You can complete the Creator Crew sign up flow by clicking HERE

What do I get for joining?
The Creator Crew offers a library of tutorial content, plus access to a dedicated area of our official Forums for collaboration and opportunities to pick up prizes and exclusive in-game items through special challenges. We’ll also showcase some of the most popular Creator Crew content on our website and social channels, giving members of the Crew a chance to become renowned within the Sea of Thieves community!

What if I don’t have any channels to link?
A Twitch channel is required to join the Creator Crew, but they’re easy to set up!

How do I get in-game rewards?
Initial in-game rewards will be awarded to any Crew member correctly linking their Twitch account and then streaming Sea of Thieves for a minimum of five minutes, at which point a Commendation will appear and the in-game rep screen will be visible.

When will I get my rewards?
Rewards earned through streaming activity will be delivered through an automated service, upon completion of a challenge which will appear in-game. Please be aware that automated rewards are not applied instantly, so please allow up to 30 minutes for delivery to your Xbox Live account.

How do I leave the Creator Crew?
We’d be sad to see you sail away, but you can choose to leave the Crew at any time by visiting your Sea of Thieves profile page and clicking the opt-out button. 

If I leave the Creator Crew, will I keep my rewards?
