Here is my other tournament fleet. The rules to this senerio are no forts, terrain, mysterious islands, or unique treasures.

In this fleet I had to include the unbeatable Grinder going S+L+S with the Eternal and Fear keywords from El Fantasma. El Fantasma also can roll a 5 or 6 and give me the same action twice. So I can move-shoot-move-shoot. The Devil's Pay is my other gunship with "Cannonball" Gallows giving me an extra 5 points to use. St. Joan is my primary goldrunner going S+S+S and with the Explorer I can explore the island faster. The Marianne is my secondary goldrunner and she allows me to look at my opponent's face-down cargo, which can be very useful at times. The only bad part about this fleet the it can't shoot at ships with the "L-range cannons cannot hit this ship." Hopefully my opponent doesn't do that on me. If they do, it will be a long battle.

Please tell me what you think about my two tournament fleets. The one with the highest score will be the one I will use in my first tournament! Please come and help me out at my first tournament, see the forums for details.

A two! You can't be serious. Why?

Side Note: I think we need more people looking and voting on the fleets here.

I like the devil's pay as a gun ship idea. I would suggest that you instead use
El ageciras with a captain and contessa anita amore instead. El Algeciras is faster and cheaper. I like this idea of using a small ship as an interceptor. Devil's pay is quite slow at an L base move.

I think what your fleet really needs though is an explorer though. Explorers speed up goldrunning a lot. Not having them makes you take an extra turn to explore islands which often can mean the difference between escaping an oncoming gunship.

You definitely have good ideas though.

Thanks for the comment nealy. There are a couple of problems with the changes. El Algeciras only has one cargo space, so I can't put a captain on her. Another problem is that I don't own Contessa Anita Amore.

I rather keep the Devil's Pay to help out my Grinder. Grinder doesn't have much fire power with only three cannons. If I put an explorer on St. Joan and take the Helmsman off, that leaves me with one extra point for what? Favor of the Gods? I doubt that the players at the venue will use events.

Another two! Wow, I didn't think this fleet was that bad. I put an explorer on my St. Joan to help her explore. What do I do with my last remaining point? Put an explorer on Marianne? Put an oarsman on Devil's Pay? Take the explorer off of St. Joan and put a Navigator on Marianne?

Please help me out!

It's nice to think you can use the Devil's Pay for a gunship, but without a Helmsman it is just too slow, perhaps consider dropping the Captain and putting a Navigator on her instead. That way you can keep "Cannonball" at your HI - out of harm's way - and give all your other ships a chance at more speed(especially the Grinder! )

This seems like a solid fleet overall, but using in a tournament could be asking for trouble. Depending on how competitive the tournament is of course. In my experience with competitive play, something like this is unlikely to do well - two of the ships only move L, and overall it's rather fragile without being exceptionally good at getting gold.

I think calling it a "tournament fleet" may be part of the reason for some of the low votes - if the voters are stacking this up against what they consider to be top tournament fleets, it makes the voting process a bit harsher due to the extreme competition this fleet will face. In a more casual game with less OP stuff to oppose it, it could do fine!
