Battle - weather
Special battles and weather: Besides the ten main battles, in each battle there can be 4 special battles related to the weather conditions. When there is “calm weather”, there are no special battles in contrast to the other 3 weather conditions. Those are sunny weather (typical is the distant fire), windy weather (typical are the fast attacks) and stormy weather (gives an opportunity for boarding). Information about the weather condition on a certain island, we can get from the watchtower on our island.
Distribution of the battles: The level of the positioning skills of both captains determines if we or the opponent will carry out the 4 special battles.
Battle success:The first and most important condition for a successful special battle is to have chosen the appropriate skill of the page “Fleet” before the battle. If we did not choose the right skill, then we automatically lose all chances for success. Afterwards, our appropriate equipment (canons, sails and hooks) is compared to the opponent’s one. All the equipment can be bought at the black market. For each special battle won we lose 1 type of equipment.
