This English Empire fleet was inspired by xerecs’ idea.
To purposely make things even more difficult for myself, I decided to only use ships from POTC, though I could use anything from SCS to SS.
The Endeavour is loaded with SAT+reroll, while Portland protects the crew. Beckett will also be rerolled, meaning that Gunn will be very busy! Beckett becomes more valuable in games like this where his ability is more affordable and more flexible with additional ships.
The Dauntless has a standard crew setup, but also has fire shot and stinkpot shot (a personal favourite of mine) to dole out extra damage. Between her powerful guns and nice ability, she’s a nice complement to the Endeavour.
Keeping with the POTC theme, Norrington joins the Interceptor, which may be the first ship to shoot moving at L+L+S in the early game. Norrington makes it more likely that Exploding Shot will find its mark, which could cause opponents problems if it hits early on.
The Phoenix is a great sniper ship that can hit on a 5 or 6 here thanks to HGold. Even at close range she’s got 4 guns shooting at 2L.
I originally had the HMS Hyena instead of the Victor, but the Hyena is perhaps slightly overused and the Victor has slightly better cannons. In addition, the Victor can repair herself if need be.
The Success is an underrated ship that can do some surprising damage through her ability and guns. Her total point cost of 14 takes up just 10% of the build total, making her an underrated asset.
Thanks to xerecs for the idea, and feel free to comment and vote on this English Empire fleet!
