[prMac.com] Shanghai, China - Kingdom of Pirates 1.4 is available with new features and activities! The new version is much more challenging and fascinating! This is another big update to the multiplayer strategy game by Toivon Studio. The bravest pirates set off on search of a lost treasure, laying waste to all who cross their path. The pirate officers can seize riches, join forces with others, and dominate the high seas.
A completely new feature, called Guild Tourney, will kick off in Kingdom of Pirates 1.4. It gives the chance for the guilds to climb up the leaderboards! A guild leader, officer or veteran can enroll their guild for the Guild Tourney. The system will pick out qualified guilds to enter: those are only the top 24 honor ranking guilds which were registered during the enrollment period. After enrollment, each guild can assign up to 9 members to challenge counterparts of the competing guild. Each round consists of 9 battles. In the first 8 battles, each guild will attack first in four random battles respectively. For the 9th battle, the system will randomly decide which guild can attack first. The combined results of all battles will determine the winner of the round. The guild with higher total rises up the leaderboard.
In addition to the exciting battles, a new Guild Market will also open in the new version. A variety of rare items can be acquired there. For each donation to the guild, the players will get many Guild chips. Those can be exchanged for needed items in the Guild Market. Most importantly, Amethyst from the remote island of Nonnia can be bought at the Guild Market. If the players can gather 200 such stones, a new extremely powerful pirate officer will join their team. This is the Eccentric Captain Neo. He was born on the island of Nonnia, and left his home in search for power and glory. This new officer is also one of the new features of the new version 1.4. However, only 9 Nonnian Amethysts per day can be purchased. There are quotas for all the types of items. And it is only the daily quotas that stops the players from taking all they need to become the most powerful pirates in the seas!
In Kingdom of Pirates version 1.4 there is a new way to make your officers much stronger than before. Except for upgrading their equipment or forging a better one, players can also imbed magic stones to their officer's magic matrix. Only one magic stone of each type can be imbedded. There are magic stones of four levels - green, blue, purple and orange. Those can also be upgraded up to level 12, but they can never turn into more powerful stones of another color.
The Magic Stones can be acquired from the Magic Island - another innovation in the game. Only there, a magic circle can be found. When they activate the circle, players can receive magic stones in return for gold money or rubies. There are five pillars of the magic circle, and each pillar offers better rewards than the previous one. A special magic bag holds the magic stones. When it is too full, the player can choose to enhance a stone, for which other unused magic stones should be consumed. Special enhance stones can significantly raise the stone's level.
Kingdom of Pirates 1.4 will feature a new daily activity - Flash Mode. A special type of items can drop from the Flash Mode. These are the magic stone fragments, which can be exchanged for magic stones. In the Flash Mode, there are three difficulty grades. Players need to complete all the challenges in a certain grade, so that in the end they can collect all the rewards. If the day finished before all challenges are completed, players can't collect any rewards from the challenges which were already passed - everything, or nothing.
