New Player Protection
New Player Protection will be active for 60 days after first joining our game.
During this time attacks received and against enemies are limited by your Experience attack range (except on Bounty list, so be careful!)
This means you'll only be able to attack and be attacked by players near you in level. For Pistol Whips and Bountying, enemy players must be either less than two times your level or greater than half your level — however, when you hit level 300, you will be able to be listed by anyone.
When you're under New Player Protection you'll have the freedom to explore and learn the game with other players with the same experience. You won't have to worry about getting stuck in an unknown feature or involved in an interaction where you could be at a disadvantage to a higher level player.
If you feel you have a firm grasp of the game you will also have the opportunity to opt out of New Player Protection before the period ends, just make sure you really want to! Once you've opted out you aren't able to get covered again.
Here are some tips that should help you aim yourself in the right direction:
- Increasing your Income by expanding your Rule will also increase the cost to list you.
- Attacking other players will add you to their Rivals list, enabling them to retaliate for 24 hours, this applies even if they're way higher level than you so be careful who you pick a fight with!
- The more friends or hired Captains you have the more weapons you can take in a fight, which increases your overall strength.
- Armadas are a great way to meet new players, get help with your Challenges and compete for rewards!
Important note: If you participate in War Mode your new player protection will be removed and can't be reverted back!
