Fleet "El Cazador's Random Setup"

Fleet "El Cazador's Random Setup"

The point limit for this challenge is so low. 8 points to work with (and 10 for crew) is really difficult!

No fleet here is going to be very competitive without either the Longshanks or Banshee's Cry (and without extra actions), but I'll do my best. I chose a ship that is:

1 - Immune to ramming
This is critically important at such low point values, as all available ships will have 3 masts or less.

2 - Accurate
This ship has 2L and 2S rank cannons, so I don't need a rank booster or cannoneer as much as with 3 or 4 rank cannons.

3 - Moderately fast
I would have liked S+L or S+S+S as a base move, but the choice of ships that are both fast and immune to ramming is nonexistent at this point level. La Baionnette and Le Vercingetorix have inferior base move and cannons, and the comparable Le Republicain has less cargo spaces. The Noble Swan has an awkward point cost for this competition, so although the turtle ship more durable, La Cazadora is the best choice for this fleet.

4 - Spanish
This last one is more of a bonus, but access to Dominic Freda provides me an explorer and bonus cargo spaces. Spain also has the only two-point captain in the game.

Having selected La Cazadora, the setup is fairly simple: Luis Zuan with a helmsman and Dominic Freda provides the captain ability, S+S+S move, the explorer ability, and two available cargo spaces for treasure exactly within my point limit. I leave a duplicate helmsman on my home island in case of boarding failure or crew-eliminators.

This fleet is weak to clusters of ships or someone who uses a combination of point-reducers like Jonah and a tribal chieftain (best example: Princess Arii Auraa on a French ship with the RtSS French tribal chieftain).

Glad to see I'm not the only on who went with a one ship to do it all fleet!

Good call with the ramming ability, as that more than actual shooting will probably come up more if the fleets of this challenge are actually pitted against one another.

This one is tough. I do like the setup you've got, but it feels like it won't be quite enough. Although, you have some options. You could go after an opponent right away, or leave the captain on an island to pick up a third good coin.

Solid fleet!
