    It's sad that this is a dead game now... It was great to play before they started pandering to console...

    I hope legends get a few weapon skins or more cosmetics, maybe even some new voyages as well!

    You should police greiffers or figure a way to punish them, because some grieffer just joined my open crew named LaimBushen23x and blow up all my gun powders on our ship causing use to sink. Then he blocked me after I confronted him about it the coward turned victim real fast. Typical sewer rat SJW causes trouble then calls harassment aka victim smh😏 Don't forget LaimBushen23x you griefed me🤔

    2:50. F-Y!!!! Rushing players till the 20th to reach the pirate legend title to get limited-time rewards is a lame excuse to play your game! Everybody should get the rewards! Not only streamers whos got nothing else in life but to play 24hrs a day this overpriced/unfinished game.

    Hello i want to ask this to the official sea of thieves team:
    is now possible to:
    1)reach a safe zone for pause the game and or logoff without lose the resources inside the ship? (For example same in elite dangerous multiplayer online game can do?)
    2) save the mission progress status before to log off? (For example same in elite dangerous multiplayer online game can do?)

    I’m a pioneer and I think it’s dumb your gonna have so many pioneers that they just gonna be a lot of feed back your y’all aren’t going to be able to tell if it’s good feedback or bad feedback if u keep the list short u have feedback that’s easy to look through and actually get feedback that’s useful not just 10k people crying about glitches but that’s just me

    Have been getting back into the game a bit recently and love some of the changes i missed but I think with all the new threats in the waters a PVE server option could be very viable now.
    Also hitting pirate legend within the first YEAR?! I hit it before hungering deep and its taken a year to get some reward for that?

    More people in servers. Going around the map and only spotting 3 different sloops is no so fun and interactive.

    • Coraldiamond 192
      Coraldiamond 192 10 months ago

      Robin Jones I’m fine with not having a lot of ships in one server. Makes it easier to do quests without someone interrupting you every 5 minutes.

    • Cheesy Boiled Nipples -
      Cheesy Boiled Nipples - 10 months ago +1

      Robin Jones facts, they should add more ships to servers or at least prioritize filling up a server to the brink of it before putting players in a fresh server

    Somebody suggested it this on another update, but how about new character appearance modification after choosing our pirate? Being able to remake our faces would be nice, or improving our teeth, etc.

  • Jacob Reed
    Jacob Reed 10 months ago

    Why do you guys do weekly updates? I've been playing almost 2 months now and the only thing you guys have done is make combat worse. Maybe spend less time on streams and empty updates and more time actually improving the game and adding content? thanks....

    I just received this message on my screen at devil's Ridge at 4:53 pm
    "The world is changing, new dangers there be
    Between boundless sky and treacherous sea
    On rolling waves with sails unfurled
    Ships come to plunder this new world"
    Any idea of what this means?

    Hey...could we look into fixing the spawning in issue taking you to a different island when your ship is still alive? Skeletons on forts spawning in floors or phasing in walls?

  • Jack Sunderland
    Jack Sunderland 10 months ago +1

    I have had a ton of fun with this game but it wasn’t without tons of struggle. You guys really need to clean up the countless bugs before you continue adding new, likely flawed content. I mean come on... barrels sinking when you arrive, skeletons not spawning or glitching in to walls, long black screens, the list goes on. This game is fun but it’s frustrating to think that it was 60 dollars and improvements are this slow.

    You ruined SoT combat. My friends and I have all quit because of it. Its so clunky now. This use to be great to play but now its just annoying. You catered to the casuals. GG
