Sid Meier's Pirates! Hints
|Attacking by land...||Contributed by Kasey Chang (4623) on Jan 06, 2001.|
Attacking by land allows you to get more people in to the fight, but it also makes them harder to control and fight. In general, the "bait and ambush" technique works best. Take the smallest group you got and use it as bait. Find the closest cover (edge of forest) and put the other pirates behind cover. Now dangle the bait, and intice the defenders to come out after the bait. As the defenders approach, they get mauled by the other group(s) in ambush. If they don't come out, you go in and get them. The only danger is cavalry (in some rich Spanish towns), and you can retreat into the forest if the cavalry charges.
