Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War - Tips and Tricks for Beginners

Massively Multiplayer Online Real-Time Strategies are becoming more popular, especially towards audiences who want to test their abilities in strategic warfare and resource management. For those who aren’t sure where to start, the sheer amount of tasks to do may be daunting, especially if you don’t know which tasks to prioritize. With these basic tips and tricks, you’ll find more clarity and sense of direction towards your much-needed game improvement.

  1. Max Out Your Resource Tiles Immediately!

Your resource tiles are the most important tiles in the game. You might have a lot of resources when you first start the game, but they’ll eventually run out as you progress further into the game. Whenever you upgrade your Fortress, you should immediately go to your resource production buildings and upgrade them as soon as possible. This way, you’ll maximize your resource output, and you won’t get caught having low resource counts to upgrade other buildings.

Remember that food is the most important resource you have. This is because you’ll be needing to stock up on crew members most of the game, which will cost a high amount of food. When choosing how many resources you need to allot, the best ratio of Farms to Lumber Mills to Silver Mines is 2:1:1. Eventually, you’ll need to buy food from the Market or Gambling house to generate enough food to feed your fleet.

  1. Build, Upgrade, Research, and Train ALL THE TIME!

The timers will take a while, so it’s best that you maximize the time you have by ensuring that your buildings are always doing something. Remember to upgrade the ones with the longest timers before you go to bed so that they’ll be ready to go when you wake up. You should also do this when you’re planning to take some time away from the game, like when you’re going to school or work and don’t want to be distracted by the game.

  1. Keep Recruiting New Members of Your Crew

Max out your crew members as often as possible by hiring new crew members, building new ships, and removing weaker, outdated units that take up your tavern’s upkeep. This way, your crew becomes stronger and more efficient at what they do. Having a bunch of weaker units in your team makes your army easy to wipe out, whether defensively or offensively. Remember to always match your crew count to that of your Tavern upkeep so that you don’t end up starving your people.

  1. Surround Yourself With Strong Allies

Alliances exist for a reason, so it’s best not to be stubborn about joining one just to prove that you can survive independently. There are a lot of benefits to joining an alliance, like having increased military strength through support and reinforcement, as well as in-game benefits like bonus stats and rewards for working together with your alliances. Even more, you can use those resources to complete upgrades. Besides, being a lone wolf with a lot of resources paints a target on your back for alliances that want to raid other players.

  1. Allocate Your Captain’s Skill Points

One thing most people forget about is allocating skill points to their captains. This gives them bonuses economically, or in the military department. Deciding where to spend these points depends on what you want to focus on in the game, but if you’re unsure of what you want to do, placing points on food production is always a smart move. Don’t spread your upgrades too much though; focus on one point first so that you can make full use of the benefits that this gives you.

Preparing For War at the Sea

You won’t be able to live out the rest of your life trying to live a peaceful existence by simply managing your pirate base. After all, this isn’t a city management game like Match Town Makeover, where your only goal is to make your base look pretty. Knowing how to prepare for battle is a great way to climb through the rankings and establish your position as a great pirate captain. Just don’t be too aggressive and start messing with the wrong people.

After you build a working fleet, you’ll need to test out their capabilities. The best way to do this is by taking out sea monsters or EITC escorts at sea. Try to gauge the difficulty level of the monster you’re trying to take on so that you don’t waste resources just to heal them up at the Healing Hut later on. Choose your battles wisely when attacking players and NPCs, and you’ll slowly be able to take on the big boys for sure. You can also ask help from your alliance as well.

Follow the Story and Gain Tons of Rewards

The story isn’t just there for you to pass the time and make the game more interesting. You can get so many rewards by completing the storyline. Rewards like these include, but aren’t limited to the Black Pearl you received when you first started out. There’s always something new to do in Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War and you’ll soon find out that you can do a lot of things in the game.
