Players can conduct Gauntlet Wars against one another. This also applies to alliances
Gauntlet Wars must be declared and accepted like a contract in order to take effect
Towns of players who you are involved in a Gauntlet War against will be highlighted on the island view with a red-coloured banderole
Islands with player towns against whom you are conducting a Gauntlet War will be marked with a red flag on the world map
In the 'Gauntlet Wars' tab in the military advisor, you can see who you are involved in a war against or which alliances your own alliance has a war against. Each Gauntlet War is linked to its own page which lists the towns of all enemy players. In the case of Alliance Gauntlet Wars, the general can mark priority targets on this screen which will highlight them with a crosshair
During a Gauntlet War, the number of General Points destroyed by each party is counted and displayed in the overview. Damage done to third parties (e.g. in battles where more than two parties take part) will not be counted
A Gauntlet War ends when one side concludes the 'Gauntlet War Agreement'
