Hello,


can you please explain me how does blockade and ransom work?


I'm blockading some inactive players around me and stealing some of their resources.


Now there's the question: How is the ransom calculated?


I used to get 110 or 120 timber/gold per hour, recently these numbers dropped to 82/90 per hour.

When I blockade some other player, I get even less - around 47 per hour.


What affects how much resources can I get per hour?

1-- Last activity of the player, in top right corner you see a dot if it is green it means player is active, if it is orange it means last sign in was 3+ days & if it is grey it means last sign in was long ago.


2-- Level of the player, higher the level, higher the ransom.

Best suggestion on what to block for ransom. Pick players that are in a BH they're more likely to be active. Or just pick one of plethora of bots . Those are all generally active

Bot havens have names including numbers & alphabets.


They are just auto generated such as 5tjca1, 63hjg2 etc.


We won't give you location of our targets :P you have to do a little work by yourself.

Blockade someone -> Pirate Stronghold -> Territories tab -> Right above a player's picture, before "Ye may claim ye ransom!"
