Subject: The UNCOMMON Fleet Challenge   PostPosted: Fri Jun 15, 2018 9:34 pm Reply with quote

After looking at various challenge ideas and consulting my own litany of ideas I hope to try at a later date, I have decided to go with a theme similar to The Common Fleet Challenge. (which actually led to my first fleet at MT!)

The Challenge:
Make a 40 point fleet using ONLY Uncommon (U) game pieces.

Rules:
-Only one fleet will be allowed per player.
-There can be fleets of multiple nationalities.
-Game pieces from Return to Savage Shores are allowed.
-Custom game pieces are not allowed. (hopefully next time though - could get really gamey with the restriction)

Fleet Scoring:
-I will pick the best fleet.

More Stuff:
-Post a link to your fleet in this thread.
-If you make use of RtSS items: Since none of the RtSS items are in the database, you'll have to use existing items as proxies in the fleet on MT. Choose a similar ship/crew/etc. with the same nationality and point cost, and in your fleet description list exactly which RtSS item will replace it. Also be sure to list the stats of all RtSS items you use so readers won't have to dig for them.
-Edits after posting are okay if there are rules issues or other serious problems, but try to avoid any drastic changes.
-If you will be participating in the challenge, feel free to make a post about it here in this thread.
-Please post any questions you have in this thread.

Prizes:
-Bragging rights.
-The opportunity to create the next Fleet Challenge.

Deadlines:
-Submit your fleet no later than Sunday July 29th.

Would the uncommon restriction apply to crew as well? Not just named crew, but ALL crew?

I'm in either way, been a while since I made a fleet.

Only Uncommons in totality. Applies to every type of game piece with no exceptions. When the fleet is finished, it should be 100% Uncommon rarity distribution under the stats MT gives you for the fleets.

As in only picking generic crew from the few uncommon out there? This is a really neat challenge, I'm definitely going to try to take part.

Literally every fleet so far is Spanish Rolling Eyes

Kinda tempted to re-do mine to stand out.

this is crazy, all 4 fleets so far are all spanish lol.

I have two fleets in mind, and one involves Spain too, although it involves no ships already used! Crazy!

Maybe I will try the other fleet lol

Edit: Jinx with Godmason =)

Although when you look at it, all the minor nations are out, and the Cursed have to Captains, and the Americans and French have no helmsmen =

Godmason, looks like we have similar strategies. Great minds think alike I guess.
