I just killed most of my crew in a mutiny for the first time, and I was surprised when i didn't have to fight them. I think it'd make more sense if you actually had to fight all of the crew involved in the mutiny. My captain (an assassin) and about 5 non combat crew were fighting against 6 fighters, 3 of which were officers, plus some non combat crew. It should have been nearly impossible for the loyal crew to come out on top, especially without a scratch.
I think i had the categories swapped. Realized that after returning to the game and still had my officers and a lot of high level crew. That makes the win a lot more likely, sorry about that. Still, fighting the crew would be kind of cool. Thanks for the quick response, I'm going back to bounty hunting and killing pirates 😎
