American Campaign on Hard

The newly received merchant Earlston carries two units of Fusiliers to the Battle of Bunker Hill. It is a back and forth affair, but we win the day and when we return to our Harbor, we find the 7th Rate Brig Andrew Doria waiting for us.

This is a really tough fight as you have to escort a merchant to safety. I buy a 6th rate ship (the USS Chippewa) and we fight our way across the map. I manage to de-mast a couple of the British ships and make it to safety. No captures but my ships all earn their second perk.

Absolutely crazy battle with HMS Fury wrecking havoc on my ships with at least 2 of my ships losing masts. At one point the USS Virginia surrenders (Yikes!), but is not captured and her crew regains their morale! I do manage to sink 1, capture a 6th rate, a 7th rate, 3 merchants and 30,000 in supplies. I then run away... leaving the HMS Fury defiant and fully capable of destroying my entire fleet and trophies.

In this video I explain the challenges of the American Campaign and contrast that with the British Campaign. The viewer will come to understand how each campaign represents a totally different strategic philosophy to win, and why each is therefore challenging in its own right.

We have been order to prevent the Royalists and British troops from taking Norfolk. Though we suffer an initial set back due to high quality British troops, we are able to form a battle line and retake the city. We also receive our first 5th rate frigate as a reward.

We capture a 6th rate Corvette and a 5th rate Hermione Class Frigate (yippee). It will take all my reputation to bring the new frigate into my fleet. But can I afford to not do it?

In this battle we sink 3 and capture 4. Our haul includes 2 7th rates and 2 merchants filled with 20,000 of supply. We have a rather epic 4 on 1 versus a British frigate at the end, but unfortunately we sink her. A major disappointment.

In a desperate move I use my last remaining 6th rate as a fire ship to take down a British 3rd Rate. It's a long hard battle but we sink 2, capture 2 merchants, a 5th rate and 2 4th rates. We also pick up 65,000 in supplies. I can't help but feeling my campaign is on the knife edge of success or failure.

This is an extensive port video in preparation for the Battle of Valcour Island. Although you are given 3 ships to fight the battle, their crews are only 1 star. I show how to give them better crews (3 star) and prepare them for battle with the best fighting ships I can. No reason to give the AI an advantage... this is after all... war.

I decide to destroy the British Fleet. We sink 11 and capture 2, a 6th and 7th rate. Interestingly, I lose the USS Spitfire with its 3 star crew from my fleet. (grrrr....) Though I did get to keep the USS Connecticut and Jersey.

With a little help from the French, we slaughter the British Fleet sinking 4 and capturing 3, including a 5th rate Hermione Frigate. An easy battle as we had the poor Brits outnumbered and outclassed.
