What are the rules?
Arr! Ye not be knowin’ th’ rules te battleship? Oh, ye landlubbers kill me…
Before th’ game begins, each o’ th’ captains arranges all his ships in a grid, an’ each o’ those ships take up squares on th’ grid. Don’t be tryin’ te be sneaky either- the ships can’t overlap each other! After all th’ ships have been put inte their proper place, each player starts with five Ability Power aka AP te fire on th’ other opponent’s board. When all o’ th’ squares o’ a ship have been hit, it’s sunk! Once all o’ th’ ships on one side o’ th’ board have gone te Davy Jones’ locker, th’ game’s over and th’ player with his ships left wins!
What is this Ability Power aka AP and how do I use it?
In PirateFleet 2, a pirate can do much more than fire cannons, so we now use Ability Power each turn to do actions. Some actions require more AP, some require none. Here is how you get AP:
Depending on number of your ships alive, you get AP.
Number of ship alive => AP
>=4 => 5 AP
3 => 4 AP
2 => 4 AP
1 => 3 AP
Sinking opponent ships quickly reduces his fire power and gives you a better chance of winning. Use this information wisely!
AP is used to do offensive actions on the enemy grids. Here is a chart of AP cost for each action:
Using non-upgraded scanner : 0 AP
Firing a cannon : 1 AP
Using an upgraded scanner : 3 AP
Using a Salvo Barrage : 3 AP
Using an Air Strike : 3 AP
Using a Rail Strike : 3 AP
What are these new powers up I hear of and how do I use them?
With PirateFleet 2, we added a lot of content and gave pirates more control over the game by giving them the opportunity to use much more strategies and tactics.
Pirates can now use in-game defensive and offensive abilities. You can see them in the game field in the slot wheel at the bottom of the screen. If you are on your grid, you see defensive actions, if you are on opponent grid, you see offensive actions.
You can select the ability by using the slot wheel and then depending on the ability, you can perform its actions. Keep in mind, the ship attached to the ability must be active on the ship for you to use those abilities. If the ship is sunk in battle, you will not be able to use the ability anymore in that game.
Mines: You can select the Mine ability on the slot wheel then target the location on your grid where do you want to place it and click the green button. Once done, if your opponent fires at it, his grid will also take damage on the same location. If you deployed an upgraded mine, his field will take a 3×3 size damage with the target location at the center. Using mines costs some amount of coins. You can place maximum 2 mines per game.
Dummy: You can select the Dummy ability on the slot wheel then target the location where you want to place the dummy ship. clicking the slot wheel icon again will change the rotation of the dummy ship. You can place 2 ships if you have upgraded this ability.
AntiAir Turret: You can place a AntiAir turret on your Anti-Aircraft ship. If any opponent tries to use an Airstrike in the row or column the turret is deployed, the plane will be shot down. Once upgraded, you can place 2 of these units in battle.
Radar: You can select the Radar ability on the slot wheel then target the location to scan on the grid. If you have a un-upgraded Radar ship, this ability will scan the 1×1 grid unit you had targeted and reveal its content for few seconds. If you have an upgraded radar ship, it will reveal a 6×6 area on the grid for few seconds. It costs a few coins to use this ability.
Salvo: You can select the Salvo ability on the slot wheel then target the location on the grid to fire. It will fire 5 cannons at the cost of just 3 AP. If upgraded, you can fire this ability 2 times per game. It costs a small amount of coins to use.
Air Strike: You can select the AirStrike ability on the slot wheel then target the row or column for the strike. Clicking on the ability icon on the slot wheel will change its attack axis. This ability will go through a row or column and hit the first opponent unit it encounters. The upgraded version of this ability will hit 2 units in the row or column. It costs a moderate amount of coins to use.
Rail Strike: This ability works the same way as the Air Strike but it will destroy every unit it finds in its path. It is the most expensive to use ability in game.
How do I get coins to buy , upgrade ships and use their abilities?
Since this is a free to play game, we give you multiple options to get coins.
