Someone please help. I've been banging my head against the wall for the past four hours because I can't seem to figure out how to attack a pirate stronghold.
I got to the level of Lord Mayor and unlocked the Alderman Missions. There, I took a mission that said I had to destroy a pirate's stronghold/hideout.
It gave me a map, which led to the vicinity of Edinburgh. From there, I went there with my ships and then the city, which was notmally a red circle, turned into a black circle.
I tried right-clicking on the black circle with ships selected (armed, single ships, multiple ships, ships inside a convoy, EVERYTHING) and nothing happened. It seemed like my ships were just docking inside the city. Is it supposed to attack the city that way? I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing.
When I left-click on the circle, it just says "X ships are guarding the port". But I can't attack anything in the area at all.
