A "Limited Engagement" is a permission between two pilots to freely engage each other or their assets in combat without interference of CONCORD. Limited Engagements are created on attacks towards other pilots that are under a suspect or criminal flag to allow them to defend themselves, but can also be gained from accepting a Duel Request. All "Limited Engagements" are active for 5 minutes and will reset if combat occurs within that time frame. An active "Limited Engagement" will be indicated by a turquoise swords symbol and hovering over the symbol will reveal the names of the pilots that the engagements are active for, as well as the remaining time of the engagement for each pilot.
As long as a limited engagement is active, the involved pilots may freely engage each other, including attacks on capsules or any other assets. Any other pilot interfering in the combat between two pilots with active limited engagements, such as using remote support modules on one of the parties, will receive a suspect flag for the interference.
Wagers on Duels
When sending or accepting a Duel Request, capsuleers can put their money where their mouth is and put wagers on the outcome of the duel. The winner of the duel, namely the first to destroy the opponents ship, will take the pot and end the duel, as well its limited engagement timer. Should the duel pass without a winner at the time the limited engagement timer ends, the wagers will be refunded.
