Challenge status = War status, but limited in time.
Your Brotherhood will be able to challenge other Brotherhoods in order to compete, earn new Brotherhood Achievements, and prove your Brotherhood's strength and superiority.
How to start
A Challenge condition can be initiated from the "Diplomatic Status" window in the "Brotherhoods" section of the Brethren Court. Once a Challenge is accepted by another Brotherhood, the countdown timer starts, and the Challenge points are being calculated.
Only the Brotherhood Leaders AND the ones entrusted with Diplomatic privileges, can challenge other Brotherhoods. When offering a challenge Brotherhoodleader and to those who were given permission get mail notifications. If the challenge was accepted or ended all Brotherhood members get the notifications.
1. Only one Challenge at a time is allowed. Your Brotherhood can't challenge the other until the challenge you accepted expires.
2. A Challenge condition cannot be cancelled if activated, and Brotherhood management will need to wait until it expires if they wish to change the Diplomatic Status with a certain Brotherhood.
There is a "Report" button next to a Brotherhood that is either involved in the Challenge condition or in a State of War with you in your "Diplomacy" tab of "My Brotherhood" section at your Brethren Court.
You will see detailed statistics of the encounter if you click on it. There will be a timer at the top of the screen indicating the time left until the Challenge condition is over, or, if you are currently at War, it will indicate how much time you have been at War with that Brotherhood for. You can view the detailed statistics on all Brotherhood Wars and Challenges in the "Brotherhood Report" tab of the "Brotherhoods" section at the Brethren Court.
For Chalenge and War states there are additional button “Statistics” ()that has an icon green or red that informs if you are winning or loosing. Pointing the button shows a tooltip with text and points.
