Baochuan Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Fleet "Baochuan" by captain_vendari United States send message

Fleets like this are a double edged sword, as your one ship can do it all, but only so much of anything at a time. If you are able to play though, this would be an exceedingly fun fleet to play. Which I can't help but think is the best way to play.

Given the importance of extra actions to a one ship fleet, I think it is justifiable to try and go for an extra action and same action to hopefully keep the Baochuan doing as much as possible. I prefered the SAC route for choice when the actions are most important, but this is another way that might work better in the long run, if you get lucky enough.

You also had the foresight to consider UTs and events which is something I didn't do. Part of that is because my brother and I generally avoid them (and in the match we played, we were teaching new players), but for a fleet like this, they can't be ignored as they can shut us down.

Certainly if you can get Zheng over to an enemy ship, then he should be a nice bonus to your fleet. Might be difficult to get that crew home for the gold if you go on the offensive, but players generally like to attack a ship like this so they'll probably come to you

I'm not saying they're better options, but the Sea Tiger, HMS Antelope , HMS Cumberland , etc could work depending on your preferences.

Good luck getting the Cursed canoe ability to activate. It's a little sad how inferior they are to the other canoes, including the RtSS ones.

This is a tough one to rate, but I'll round to a 5 based on the fun and creative sides of things.

Yup, reading this review, I realized an optimization chance I missed in yesterday's Water World game:

Cursed Blade , 11 pts
Hammersmith , 5 pts
Coconut , 4 pts

Now that's 20 points of versatile Piracy!

I wonder how well this would fair in a mirror against my own own Baochuan.

Fantastic build. I thought about the potential for a SAC approach, but given Ms. Cheng's ability to increase the odds of EA or SAT I had decided against it.

With the way it performed in my game against a7xfanben, I'm satisfied with this fleet. While it's not top-tier, I think it can hold its own.

Yeah, I don't think any crew setup could make this ship potent enough to be worth her cost compared to what she can offer.

Props to reviewing her in the first place though - in my opinion the most annoying ability in the entire game, coupled with a rather poor and subpar ship. Not one I'd enjoy talking about very much, even though she's English heh.

I think that giving a captain to a ship with a 4-rank cannon on it isn't the best idea but it could work. Thanks for the feedback!

Reminds me a little of this one but with different strategies.

I wouldn't recommend swapping Kwan for a captain:


quote from The Pirate Code:
-Redundant abilities on a ship will not bypass the effects of a canceller. The no-stacking rule will prevent any and all additional copies of an ability from functioning on that ship, even if their sources have not yet been revealed.


UT's can be the bane of a lot of combat-oriented fleets. Missionary or Jail would also be a big problem.

Great review, very useful information and a clean presentation of the facts. One thing I'd noticed, in the "Combos..." section, you hadn't mentioned the captain/Helmsman combo crew like Thomas Gunn or Hermione Gold . Being limited to one cargo space is a hassle, but getting a bonus S to an already fast ship and giving it the ability to move/shoot can make this a very pesky ship indeed.

Interesting idea being presented here! I think it would be fun to see the cheapest possible build for each faction....

quote from crsluggo:

I appreciate that you built a decent Barbary fleet without using Janissaries' Blood . According to some people I've talked to, It is the only decent Corsair ship to be released... From the looks of it, your fleet looks well balanced and has plenty of redundancy built... Hopefully preventing you game getting screwed by the loss of a ship....


And those people are probably too focused on combat. The JB is their best gunship, but the Corsairs are primarily a gold running faction. In fact, it couldn't be much further from the truth, as the Corsair ships released make them the game's best minor faction and even better than the Cursed in most cases.

Ranking: Barbary Corsair Gold Runners

Hoping to use this fleet soon, and I hadn't even realized that the Carolina was over on points with 8. Swapped her explorer for an oarsman on the Julius Caesar, though more equipment is also tempting.
