The following are strategies for the Pirate Plague Scenario. Please feel free to add your own strategies, tips, and Q&A here:
- Start in Saudi Arabia, Casual Difficulty, with the Neurax Worm.
- Evolve Eggs 1, Eggs 2, Concertina Locomotion, and Undulatory Locomotion.
- Evolve Trojan Planes 1, Water 1, and Air 1.
- Once Occipital Mesh mutates, send the Trojan Planes to the following areas, in this order: Caribbean, Iceland, Greenland, New Zealand, Madagascar, New Guinea, and Philippines. Indonesia will be infected by S.E. Asia as if the two share a land border.
- Evolve Genetic Swap, Mutative Regeneration 1, and Mutative Regeneration 2. Allow symptoms to mutate naturally. It'll make things easier in the future.
- Evolve Cold Resistance 1 and 2, and Drug Resistance 1. Due to the hot, arid climate of Saudi Arabia, Heat 1 may not be necessary, but can be evolved when desired.
- Wait until the majority of the world is infected, and evolve symptoms up to Transcendence. One option is to evolve the following symptoms: Adrenergic Constriction, Anxiolytic Infusion, Psychosis, Adoration, and Transcendence.
- Evolve Genetic Hardening 1 and Genetic ReShuffle 1 to stall cure effort.
- Send Trojan Planes to countries that haven't been completely infected.
- Watch as the world burns.
