Absolute Worst Possible Fleet Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Army "Absolute Worst Possible Fleet" by captain_vendari United States send message

quote from woelf:

If you're going to allow crew to be ditched on the home island without ever being used, try Jolly Mon with Jonah aboard. Then load up the rest of your "fleet" with whatever arbitrary crew you want as long as they're all at least 2 points each.

Jonah plugs up the one cargo space the ship has, and reduces its base move to S in the process. The rest of the crew are effectively useless even if Jonah somehow gets knocked off.

One of the rules I was playing by (and should have mentioned) was that all crew used in the fleet should be able to legally be assigned to a ship at the start of the game.

Personally, I think this fleet is still worse than Solitaire + 23 Oarsmen. At least with that fleet, you are still capable of bringing home one coin. With mineall one needs to do is take out the Seminole and then the only thing left to do is avoid the Solitaire, which will try its hardest to ram and board you so it can get rid of Lady Godiva.

Edit: On second thought, maybe I should actually give this a 1. You admitted that the fleet is terrible, so either a 1 or a 5 is appropriate...

I was considering asking to rate higher based on intent, but I think I'd prefer 1 so it doesn't make Fleet of the Week lol


As for Crew starting on the home island, I had also considered your idea (as well as a crew like Godiva), but for this particular fleet I felt that it would be reasonable that all crew should have the ability to start assigned to a ship

I agree that this fleet would never win a game. Nice job.

Since crew can start the game on your home island, I've always been intrigued by the possibility of just leaving them there. How about a fleet with Le Solitaire and 23 French oarsmen taking naps on your HI? Sure it's not "standard" in the sense that you're really not trying at all, but it's technically legal.

quote from captain_vendari:
As for Le Solitaire, it still has at least one use: taking up almost half of a fleet in some "worst fleet" challenge. Throw in a French Captain and another awful ship from a different nation, and there you go.


Le Solitaire + captain = 20 points
Knight's Errant + captain = 20 points

40 points

quote from a7xfanben:


quote from cjohnson:
Whenever I talk to people, they talk about how it's probably the worst ship in Pirates. At first, I didn't agree (it's often tied for worst with Maman Brigitte ), but when I finally got a good look, I noticed that it's actually pretty poor.


If you want to see the worst ship in the game, look no further than Le Solitaire.

Check out the comment section of this review to see a discussion of "worst ships". In this case the Orca fits the description woelf mentions of the worst ships that are somewhat playable.

I don't mind the Orca. I like her ability. Sure it's more useful with something like the Bandido or Hambre, but a ship that moves S+S+S, grabs a coin and comes back at S+S all for just 6 points isn't useless. It's quite cheap and fast for what you get, and having a nearby island that's already been explored (by Lady Kamaile perhaps) helps speed up the process, along with trade currents.


Between Orca and Bandido, you're merely trading a cargo space for an extra mast. On the bright side, ramming alone won't completely put her out of commission. Between just these two ships, it really comes down to if you prefer bringing home that extra coin (Hambre has the added advantage of costing 1 less point for a Spanish version of Bandido), or adding one more HP. But I definitely agree, she's pretty bad.

As for Le Solitaire, it still has at least one use: taking up almost half of a fleet in some "worst fleet" challenge. Throw in a French Captain and another awful ship from a different nation, and there you go.

Welcome to MT!

I like how you're using the links even though I would normally swap Vazquez for a captain and helmsman since 3/5 of the guns are already L-range.

Check out this fleet for more!

Not to commit a fauxpass here but are you a UK based player, A7xfanben??


Nope, I'm actually in the U.S. I can't wait to visit Britain and I may even live there someday, although that's more of a bucket list thing. This is the second group of players I've heard about in Britain (along with submariner96), which makes me want to move there sooner!
