Battle of the Seven Castles
The Battle of the Nine Castles is the main event in ChatWars. Every eight hours, the forces of the nine different castles fight for gold and resources. Every player has the choice of defending the own castle against enemy forces or attacking one of the other six castles by changing his state to attack or defend. For a few minutes, the game is locked and no other activities can be done, the player gets the message
The wind is howling in the meadows, castles are unusually quiet. Warriors are mending their wounds and repairing armor after a tiresome battle. All the establishments and castle gates are closed for the next couple of minutes. Await the battle report at @chtwrsReports
The game calculates the battle results depending on how strong the forces of attackers and defenders were at each of the castles. If the attackers were stronger than the defenders, the castle is breached and players of the breached castle lose gold and resources to the attackers. If the attackers were weaker than the defenders, the attack fails and no gold or resources are won by the attackers, quite the contrary: attackers can lose equipment to the successful defenders.
