Did anyone else grab this? I'm having a ton of fun playing it. Would love to give a coordinated effort a shot and see how that goes. I've just been pugging other people's ships, it's be crazy. Some are serious and we do intense battles, others goof around and we beach our ships and have land battles on carribean beaches, which is also epic.
Though I saw a lot of bugs at first I've gotten over them. You get used to them and learn to play around them. So far I've specialized in repair. I still haven't figured out how to put out fires, especially when I'm on fire. The captain role is of the highest importance and makes or breaks a game. One crappy captain and your whole team can lose. There's a lot of potential with this one.
It does get repetitive but luckily the sides change players frequently and there's always new captains and new strategies. I have only played one game where all the ships are coordinated, and it was amazing.
I have not played a game where we've used grapples or grapeshot effectively. Most ships avoid them and just pull up broadside and fire cannonballs which kills gunners. I think if anyone can load the cannons strategically and use them effectively, it's TG.
