Fun fleet. Not as original as yours, but the thought of dual Ange's coming at me is somewhat intimidating!

Very nice fleet! I'm impressed with your strategy and overall line of thinking. I love the thought of putting a canceler on a ship with L-immunity, something I hadn't thought of before. The Bonne Chance, Neptune, and Sea Phoenix are all some of my semi-favourite ships.

Can't wait for the battle report!

So here's a relevant summary of my Baochuan's performance in a match I actually got to use my fleet. The build of which, you can find here. This comment was also posted in the forums.

After the islands were were placed, the ocean was long and on an oval table. At both ends were two center islands and each of the four players chose those islands. As a result, everyone had a close neighbor to preoccupy them and it was like there were two separate games going on. The Baochuan was opposite the Cursed fleet, played by a new player. On the other end of the field my brother's Spanish fleet was up against another new player's personally built Pirate fleet. (Who'd played 3 times before, compared to the other new player's one previous game)

The Baochuan was doing alright, not picking a fight with the cursed as both fleets were picking up decent coin. Until Turtles appeared, traded to the Baochuan's current island by Zheng Li Kwan. Then the cursed started to rally around taking out my turtles. Going up against a Sac-Divine Dragon and El Fantasma combo, I SAC'd an Oarsman to get most of my guns in range and fire, taking off 4 of the 6 masts. Next turn sinking the Divine Dragon, after losing two masts, prompted the Cursed to send their gold runners after my turtles so the Baochuan had to stay and defend them longer, though I got to capture the Sea Duck to steal some extra gold, and the Celestine to generate a few trade currents, ideally. (I left the Sea Duck derelict in the water.) Having finished off the Cursed fleet, the Baochuan got the chance to drop off her gold and hunt for a little more gold before the Spanish fleet invaded.

On the other side of the world, the Spanish equipped a crew killer on her El Cristal del Obispo to surprise the Pirates, who only had a captain on their Revenant. As a result the Spanish steamrolled the Pirates immediately, leaving a lone Darkhawk II to putz around slowly. Having claimed about half the map's gold, the Spanish had 37 of the 41 gold needed to trigger endgame, compared to the Baochuan's 20-some gold. (Mostly on the home island) With the only gold left on the board on the complete opposite end of the map, away from any whirlpools, the Spanish's last hope was to kill enough turtles to win.

The Cristal appeared through a whirlpool and got first strike at the Baochuan, taking off 3 masts. The Baochuan returned fire, taking 4 masts off the Cristal, with her returning fire sucessfully, taking off another mast off the Baochuan. At the same time, the Buscador, La Manila, and El Algeciras appeared through the whirlpool, with the Manila loosing a mast.

The Baochuan then derelicted the Cristal, derelicted the Buscador and crippled the Manila, while staying out of range for return fire. The Algeciras and Manila rammed, doing no damage. The Turtles then returned home, finally, and my brother surrendered before the captured Pirate ships could arrive (all captain-less, making them easy to sink). The Baochuan would be able to get the last gold of the game to win, easily.

There's a small imgur albumhere with some pictures I took during the game. Not enough, and not of all the critical moments so I didn't include them, but they might help people visualize what happened and get a feel for some of the game.

quote from el_cazador:

How would you deal with an extra-action Deliverance or San Cristobal ? I know that your fleet could scatter to an extent, but the speedy Cristobal seems dangerous.


Basically just run away and try to intercept with the Bilge/flotilla combo. This fleet is kind of a concept or "gimmick" fleet to a degree, it's not necessarily even supposed to remain competitive against things like the San Cristobal.

It's more for fun and to demonstrate that England has good small ships as well as the typically overused big gunships.

I like flotillas, but I don't use them that often. My favorite is the Armada , because it can decimate an enemy gunship or treasure runner. Paired with El Algeciras , it's a 12 point mobile artillery piece!

On the cheaper end of things for the Americans, I'd like to pair this with the Peacock and a captain for a a primary gunship. 19 points relatively cheap for a full-fledged American gunship, especially with this kind of firepower; it out-ranges annoying L-immunities, S-immunities, and the dreaded canceller.

As Brando stated, most people do not know about the variations. The white Clone Trooper is often referred to as "black", because of the markings.

Series 9 is still available in the parks.

One-Mast galleys are about the same size, and have the "stern turn" ability, so why does this li'l guy get so much flak for being a 1-masted Schooner?


What do you mean? The Lightning is an excellent ship.

Wow, I didn't realize you can get 3 merit points just for posting a comment on a miniature!

I like this review. If I had this ship, she'd see use in 40-point games, I think. A great ship for a great price, and a great read too! 5/5

quote from kingofthe7seas:

Actually, volt... the cancelling text doesn't SAY you must cancel an ENEMY ship's ability... bwahahahaha! So if you keep that in mind (and ignore the yells of irritation from your opponents) then yes, it's defiantly worth the price.



As Ben said, but just to clarify, no you cannot cancel your own ship with a canceller ON that ship. The key to that is it says "within S." The text in the code says:

A canceller may target friendly abilities on other ships. “Within S” is measured outward from a ship but does not include the ship, so it cannot be used to target itself or any other abilities onboard.

There was no "Super Rare" pack in Crimson Coast, so Roanoke was just randomly dropped into the set much like a standard Rare item. I think the Captain was put in as a common because that's where it fit the best in the layout.

Americans weren't a playable faction, outside of using the Roanoke, Providence, or Destiny, in Crimson Coast... Why is this guy a common? Printing Error? Barbary Coast had Jade Rebellion crew as Super Rares.

So even though the combo doesn't work with Calim submerged, it could still work while surfaced, which is still very good and potentially a great combo. I'd love to try that sometime in a game.

I would switch the shipwright on the GT for an explorer on the Neptune's Hoard and an oarsman on the GT.

I like this fleet. It's unique and uses a lot of star players from different factions, which is cool and unique, having a schooner, 6 mast junk, iconic sub, hoist, and squid. I would rate it a 4 for playability right now (possibly a 5 rounded up with the above change), and a 5 for uniqueness and creativity.

Thanks for enlightening me about the hoist/sea monster combo!

I swapped Calypsos out for Calim, since Calim is so speedy.
