Battle StrategyEdit

The main advantage of the Pirate Sloop is its low price of 15 Victory Points, making it the cheapest ship in the game. This means the best use for the Sloop is as a cheap ship to fill in the remaining ship slots when running low on Victory Points. For lower point games, one might use Sloops as their main ship type, usually in reasonable numbers to compensate for their individual lack of firepower. The Sloop is armed with a Medium Laser Cannon on the bow by default, however as there are no other good places to mount a Harpoon Gun, one might wish to replace the Medium Cannon with a Harpoon to enable the use of boarding. Due to the low cost of the Sloop, selecting the best crew members available is usually not a good idea, as this will increase the cost of the Sloop considerably, thus losing its main advantage.
