Strategy: Fleet Types

Posted by Captain Salem Vendari on January 22, 2015 at 11:25 AM

There are many different types of fleets you can build. Here I will list some common ones you can find:

1. Vanilla
This is a typical fleet with a designated gunship, and a designated gold-runner. There is usually a third ship that serves a special purpose, whether it is to support either or both the gunship and gold-runner, or has its own purpose entirely.

2. Swarm
The idea behind this fleet is to use a bunch of small, fast ships to get out to the islands. With so many ships, it's difficult for an opponent to catch them all, so many of them will be able to bring in some treasure.

3. Battle-Boarders
Boarding is a difficult way to win, but it sure is fun (it's also one of the more effective ways to play the Cursed). Ships in these fleets prefer to take gold from the enemy, rather than exploring themselves. Sinking ships and stealing half the gold (or using Divers to take it all) is also part of the mentality.

4. Silver Explorers
This fleet focuses on using Silver Explorers to increase the value of silver treasure it brings home. Remember to contribute silver tresure if you play with this fleet!

I'd add pure gold running and pure fighting fleets to the list. Both are more common than silver-based fleets.

The battle boarders are very fun indeed! As I have found, especially with the cursed.
