Leveling and unlocking ships

Hi every one,
I would like to ask You about leveling and unlocking ships which I can buy. I already upgraded my shipyard to lvl 2, this is ok, no problem... But i have to "destroy gunboats", i destroyed many od them so i think it is no problem. Next i found a gunboats sailing on map at lvl 40 (i am lvl 24) but it is impossible to destroy 8 or more gunboats at lvl 40 with my poor ship (yes i did upgrades). Do what's to do, to unlock better ships?

Second thing is why ships on lower level (19-20) shot me stronger than I can shot them... Is it normal? Or maybe i have to do much more upgrades?

Thanks for your attention

Thanks for this feedback.
Can I ask you what your current tier is on your equipment? How many stars and what color are they?
I might made the gunboat fight to unlock the next ship tier a bit too hard.

I personally thought that a boss fight to unlock new things should be hard. But I might have overdone it.

Please let me know ;)

Hi again,
I reached lvl 27 now, and I have 3 stars on sails, 4 on guns, 5 on armour. I already found first mat at chest, do it's additional bonus. Maybe You know why my ship is still shooting ~150, my enemies can now shot me near 400 (ship lvl 19)

I see.
Equipment works as a multiplier on the base values of a ship.
The gunboat you get at the start of the game has quite low base values.
Try to work your way up to a new ship with higher base stats.

Also the game has a dynamic adjustment for battles.
Each time you win in a battle, all enemies get a little stronger.
This goes faster each time you won without losing in between.

This system however also works the other way around.
It also makes the enemies weaker faster if you lose a lot.

If you find the game is scaling too fast for you, try not to fight the weaker looking ships, as they will also make the harder enemies even harder to defeat.
We do this to keep the game challenging for players and avoid people from always trying the easy ways. ;)

A little hint: Try to go beyond the 5 stars, your equipment will upgrade to the next rarity and receive a big boost to its multiplier.

Now i know why if i attack 25-29lvl it's easier in my feeling. Thanks for your attention.

I already defeated gunboats using chain balls, it was much easier than without them - new boats unlocked ;)
