Have you changed your mind about certain ships?
Yes, and it's good to learn what works better for me.

Catch them with the wind in the right direction - and a well aimed chain shot or 2 Smile

Well, I managed that. Basically I saw one approaching a port I was blockading. It came to me. So I waited until I was upwind and on top of it before I selected the attack button. A big broadside of chain on the attack screen evened the odds, and they surrendered, as I approached.

But you are right. I'd rather have a frigate class and/or a Royal Sloop.

Since the game is quite repetitive I've put restrictions on myself to make the game more interesting.

1. I am not allowed to have more than one ship permanently. I can take ships to ports to sell off but I leave with one ship. This rule also rule out the smallest ships because of the cargo limits. Smallest ship I've used over a length of time since forcing this rule is a Royal Sloop.

2. Not allowed to upgrade ships myself. This means that any upgraded ship I capture has the potential of being very interesting as a new flagsip.

I have more, but you would think me really weird if you knew them all...

Easiest ship to find with a lot of upgrades seems to be a Royal Sloop pirate hunter. Favourite ship is Brig of War, fully upgraded.

I lost my very first Ship of the Line when I was taken on by a flag galleon. Normally that wouldn't be too much of an issue. However the flag galleon had a friend which was another flag galleon.

I was out gunned 48 - 76 and had no sails. So I left my computer and grabbed a drink as I watched my beauty fall to the bottom of the ocean. Crying or Very sad

Brig, Brig of War, Frigate...those are my top choices, a fully modded Brig of war can handle 300 crew and 32 cannon...sails quick! one I learned to avoid are galleons. yeah they are big....slow...and easy to overtake!
