The Pirate Start strategy requires you to acquire 3 different Pirate champions. Most likely, you’ll pick up Graves, Pyke, and Gangplank, as the last Pirate, Miss Fortune, only appears late game. If you manage to get the Pirate buff, you earn up to 4 additional gold each round. The sooner you acquire this buff, the better. In most TFT games, early game isn’t that important, as long as you don’t lose too much health. Therefore, the Pirate Start strategy is a great way to secure a lot of gold for late game. Notice, you might lose quite a few rounds early on, as the Pirate setup isn’t the strongest in terms of power. Once you get the Pirate buff, get to 50 gold as soon as possible, and you will be rolling in gold each round.
