war declaration Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

My question is: if you receive a declaration of war, are you automatically in war even if you don't want the war? Our crew and flag are small and would stand no chance against a larger flag so do you have to accept this declaration...if not what is the next step?
Thanks for any help offered.

No. Only when both sides have approved war declarations does a state of war exist.

You will see this often in blockades when the attackers must declare war against the defenders in order to declare the blockade in the first place. It is up to the defenders whether they want to go to war and force a sinking blockade.

Although, as long as the war dec is in place, you are unable to port in the declaring flag's islands.

And we can all laugh at you. Not for using 'and' as the first word in a sentence, but for not accepting the war dec.

Don't believe that you don't have a chance just because you are small. Get your hearties and go hunting. Or do some arranged 2v2 sloop battles since full sloops are hard to sink.

The biggest worry is if you are merchants and need to move goods around.

Wars are fun.
