General flotila tips and strategies

Post  Piratus on Sat Jan 02, 2010 12:22 pm

The last few weeks I have ported a WB(thanks for the loan, Frame) next to a non-sinking flotilla. The goal is for the crew to have fun and for myself to learn a thing ortwo about multi-ship bnaving and managing larger vessels. Something I have very little experience about, but a Captain of my caliber should know.
When I become more experienced and secure we could do more risky thing.

Anyway, I could use some tips and advice to make this more painless. Thank you.

well, i never run a flotilla before, so i dont really have some good advices...
but i think the thing u most concerned about is with TH, just telling to not TH wont really help. In danger situacions stay where they cant TH that would be ok xD
let us know when u plan to do that if I have the time i will join too xD

Good tip.

I will do it whenever 1. I am online 2. A few crewmates are online, so I can have a XO and some trusted mates. 3. A lot of other people are online and 4. No, or few, smh's are running.

Flotillas in a wb are a great experience =)

Jerricho and I have tried our hand at these and learned a lot. (Mainly because we failed a lot)

First, stock. You shouldn't worry about over stocking your ship because this is non sinking so you'll have the rum/cbs even if you sink.

Second, jobbers. Jobbers are the hardest thing to get and the easiest thing to lose. Plan on spending 45 minutes to an hour just trying to gather up a respectable amount of jobbers (especially on a non-sinking tilla). Go in with a full ship because jobbers love to leave.

Third, strategy. When you go in, the ships are all the way on the other side of the map and its easy to waste all your moves getting over there. Be careful not to put yourself in a risky situation when you are low on moves because that many ships against lonely 'ol you can get ugly. Try to single out one merchant ship and draw him away from other ships. Don't go shooting at every ship that sails by you or else you will get nowhere fast. Don't worry too much about the sloops and cutters that shoot you, they are just distracting and a waste of cbs. Don't be afraid to run away. Things can get ugly (especially with a wb) and if you try to take a ship down 1v1 with a risky move, you could be jeopardizing the whole attack. And don't be afraid to shoot! You'll be surprised at how many times you accidentally hit a ship.

Fourth, treasure haul. Telling jobbers not to TH is pointless. If you really don't want them to TH, move, or else they will do it. Don't try to tell the carpers to stay on their station and fix damage because they won't, they will TH too. Basically only go near a TH spot when you have everything under control (damage, bilge, moves) or there is no ship near you. You'll also find sometimes you just get stuck near a spot and there's nothing you can do. Just don't get frustrated when jobbers won't stop THing because its unavoidable.

Flotillas rocked Jerricho and I the first couple times we did them. It is a steep learning curve but its loads of fun and great practice for kades. I'll be sure to be on there with you!

Yes, the only real diffrence is that the "ships" looks like monsters and that there are brawls.

Just to keep you updated. Yesterday I made my first succesfull Flotilla attack!
I sunk a Merchant Brig wich was protected by only a sloop and a dhow. I hauled it all up and decided to go for another ship.
Then I ran out of cannonballs! /me frowns
It was my first run when I didn't "sink" and brought poe back to port, it wasn't as good as it could have been, but I would still call it a succes.
