Ahoy thar Captains!
Thar be changes in the winds fer ye all to grasp!
From this day forth your Brotherhood will be able to challenge other Brotherhoods in order to compete, earn new Brotherhood Achievements, and prove your Brotherhood's strength and superiority.
A Challenge condition can be initiated from the "Diplomatic Status" window in the "Brotherhoods" section of the Brethren Court. Once a Challenge is accepted by another Brotherhood, the countdown timer starts, and the Challenge points are being calculated. The Challenge condition is all about battling rival Brotherhoods and proving that your Brotherhood is the fiercest faction of pirates out there!
Only the Brotherhood Leaders, or the ones entrusted with Diplomatic privileges, can challenge other Brotherhoods. Only one Challenge at a time is allowed. A Challenge condition cannot be cancelled if activated, and Brotherhood management will need to wait until it expires if they wish to change the Diplomatic Status with a certain Brotherhood.
There is a "Report" button next to a Brotherhood that is either involved in the Challenge condition or in a State of War with you in your "Diplomacy" tab of "My Brotherhood" section at your Brethren Court. You will see detailed statistics of the encounter if you click on it. There will be a timer at the top of the screen indicating the time left until the Challenge condition is over, or, if you are currently at War, it will indicate how much time you have been at War with that Brotherhood for. You can view the detailed statistics on all Brotherhood Wars and Challenges in the "Brotherhood Report" tab of the "Brotherhoods" section at the Brethren Court.
That be yer lot then!
Away to yer Challengin’ all of ye!
Yer pirate Queen,
Captain “Bonnie” Anne O’Malley
