|Result||Purple Spy War begins|
Dutch East India Company
The War of the Seas refers to the large scale piracy committed by Arrgh against the Dutch East India Company in March 2016. Starting on March 13, Arrgh began launching raids against DEIC without any notice. Between April 13 and 31, nearly 75 raids were conducted on the lower tier of DEIC without much retaliation or reaction. Towards the end of March, a majority of the DEIC lower tier began switching en-mass to the United Purple Nations alliance affiliation. After doing so, some began a spy attack campaign against Arrgh. This ended up causing the Purple Spy War to break out.
