Interaction between Captains will be the key feature of your gameplay experience. To succeed you'll need to master all the different ways of influencing and engaging other Captains. There are several ways to do this. You can interact with your fellow Captains from the Map interface by going to the Map and positioning your mouse over another Captain's Haven and choosing an action (Trade, Raid, etc.) from their Haven's pop-up menu. You can also interact by visiting their Haven. Go to the other Captain's Haven, click "Actions" on the right menu and choose the action you want to perform. Alternately, you can perform most interactions from your Naval and Command buildings. As you make more contacts (friend or enemy) you'll find that keeping track of them all will be easier from the command building interfaces than by scrolling on the map. You can perform acts of Piracy, conduct diplomacy, and engage in trade from the Pirate Stronghold, Brethren Court and Market, respectively. All these methods allow you to use the following features:

RaidingEdit

Raiding other Captains' Havens is definitely the most satisfying way to earn Resources in the game. To conduct a Raid, choose the number and type of Units you want to send. If your Raid is successful, you will seize a certain number of Resources. The amount of Resources seized depends on the carrying capacity the Units that survived the Raid. After the Raid you will receive a report from your Master at Arms detailing the number of casualties and the amount of Resources your Units claimed. You can perform 10 Raid attempts. then 0ne every 2.5 hours or wait 24 hours for 10 raids. Any Raids in excess of the allotted 10 will not result in any acquired resources. You can view the current number of Raids available at the Pirate Stronghold ("Captain's Log" tab) or on the Map by positioning your mouse on other Captain's Haven. After you've reached the daily Raid limit, you can still send your Crew to raid other Havens, but they won't seize any more Resources. You can capture no more than 50% of the enemy's Warehouse capacity in each raid, and 5% of captured Resources will be subtracted as the cost of the Raid. If the Haven has already been raided to its limit by other players, or the amount of Resources in Warehouse is less than 50% of its capacity, the Raider will get 5% of Resources stored in Warehouse at the time of the Raid. A Raid can be performed in 2 ways: From the Map: 1. Click «Map» in your Haven. 2. Place the mouse over the Haven you want to raid. 3. Choose «Raid» on the Haven menu. From inside the enemy's Haven: 1. Go visit the Haven of the player you want to raid. 2. Select «Raid» from the «Actions» menu.

BlockadeEdit

To blockade other Captain's Haven, choose the number and type of Units you want to send. If successful, your Crew will blockade the Enemy's Haven and you'll take a higher position in the Blockade Rankings. Blockades can be broken if the blockaded Captain produces enough offensive Units or gets enough Reinforcements to defeat the blockading force's crew. If your Haven has been blockaded, you can still produce Units to defeat the Blockader or ask your Friends to send you Reinforcements.  Blockades can be performed in 3 ways: From the Map: 1.

Scouting missions allow you to get a full picture of the number and type of Units in other Havens and the amount of Resources they have to Raid.
