Tactics in Privateers Bounty
I took the suggestion of a friend and tried using destination points for groups of ships. That turned out to be incredibly good. With the difficulty set to "Medium", the Dutch, under my control beat the Swedes 72% to 0%, in the Battle of the Sound scenario.
I want to try other scenarios, as well, to see how well it works. My basic fleet tactic is to break the enemy fleet into two pieces, where one is usually smaller than the other, and then sail back and forth, between the two parts. The enemy ships come towards the fleet, and get raked and destroyed.
