    Hello Civ'ers!
    (I love Civ 6 even more after that patch!)

    I play as Japan and both america and brazil attacked me (bad for them because my Privateers are close)

    I now like to use those Privateers! I like to raid and i did not know: you can even steal builders with them!

    Yes, this is also an achievement. Play Norway and steal a builder or settler with coastal raid. All of Norway's melee ships can do it.

    Privateer isn't a melee ship. Its the early tech version of a submarine and upgrades into subs.

    Privateers belong to the Naval Raider class of ships and they can pillage and steal workers and settlers. Norway's special ability is that aside from their Naval raider ships, all their melee ships can do this as well.

    I wish they'd bring back the privateer's ability to hide its flag, enter opponent territory and attack their ships without declaring war. Such a fun part of otherwise peaceful multiplayer games.
