Solo TournamentSolo Tournaments are special competitions where you can compete individually against Captains from all across the Seven Seas for big prizes! Participation is optional, however the outcome of each Global Tournament can alter the game storyline, result in permanent changes to the Seven Seas, and unlock rewards or new game features for participating players!
Participation in Solo Tournaments will often - but not always - require Captains to embark upon on dangerous adventures to collect Tournament Points. The tasks vary depending on which Tournament is currently taking place. All participating Captains will be rewarded in proportion to their contribution!
All Captains are divided into Classes according to their respective Level: Novice, Amateur, Professional, Veteran, Master, and Expert. Your rewards from Solo Tournaments will be bigger if you are in a higher Class at the moment you engage in the Tournament, but even novice players who occupy the top positions in their Class will get large rewards! You and your fellow Captains are divided up into Classes before each Tournament begins, and you will remain locked in that Class bracket for the Tournament's duration, even if you level up during the course of the event!
IdolsYou can earn Idols by participating in certain Global Tournaments. They cannot be purchased with Rum, Lumber, Gold, or Rubies, and you can't exchange them or send themem as gifts to other players. Other players cannot raid Idols from your Haven. You can use Idols to purchase special Sketches that are required to train Steam Units, as well as other game items and features. Once you have collected enough Idols, go to the Smuggler's Den, open the "Idols" tab, and select an item you wish to purchase.
Check the Smuggler's Den to view the full list of items and game features you can purchase!

Progress PushTo earn Tournament Points in the Progress Push, you must do the following:
- Research or upgrade Discoveries
- Apply Pearls in the Witch Doctor's Hut
No battle actions are required for this Tournament, Captain. Strengthen your Haven and get ahead of your enemies. The Seven Seas only have room for winners.
Treasure HuntBoth Targets and Treasure Islands are sites on the Map where you can get of one of the three main types of Resources (Rum, Lumber or Gold), or special Resources like Rubies or Gears.
There are three sizes of Targets: large, medium and small. The rate of Resources offered up by the citizens of a Target, and its storage capacity, depend on its size. The bigger a Target, the more Resources it yields per hour, and the larger its capacity.
You will find Treasure Islands of different sizes on the Map according to your level in the game. The speed at which you can load Resources from a Treasure Island depends on the upgrade Level of your "Levers an' Axles" Discovery, and the amount of Resources you can collect in one trip is determined by the collective carrying capacity of the Defensive Units you have stationed at the Island.
TARGET AND TREASURE ISLAND DEPLETION
When a Target is emptied of all its goods, it is removed from the Map. The time remaining until a Target's depletion is displayed on the pop-up Map menu and in your Administrative buildings (your Pirate Stronghold and Lighthouse). A Treasure Island doesn't have a set lifetime. It will be removed from the Map when all its Resources have been dug up, or if no one has attacked or captured it for an extended period of time.
When new Targets or Lighthouses appear on the Map, they are vacant and unguarded – so try to be first to capture one! Any player can view the number of Resources currently hidden there by positioning their cursor over the site.
Brotherhood Bastion ShowdownThis Tournament gives Captains who belong to a Brotherhood the chance to show their power! Prepare yourself for a traditional Pirate fight to the death! There be a number of different ways to receive Tournament Points during the Brotherhood Bastion Showdown: You can upgrade your own Brotherhood Bastion, or alternatively downgrade the Bastions of your rivals - fighting and destroying their Units in the process! You will receive Tournament Points when you take down enemy Units at any Brotherhood Bastion. Remember: Tournament Points are awarded in proportion to the strength of the Units you destroy!
