    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?)

    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?

      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.

    • Gargantuan Oversized Boobs -
      Gargantuan Oversized Boobs - 3 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

    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....

    Between boundless sky and treacherous sea
    On rolling waves with sails unfurled

    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 3 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.

  • Kyle

    I really don't like the idea of being marked on the map for any missions. I was personally not a fan of it in other game that took that approach. just makes it hard for people like me that are not the best at the game's PvP but still love the game. It can also become a troll farm witch sucks. especially when you loose 20,40 or 60 minutes of work. I feel that there should be a percentage lost of the loot to the player who swipes it. So like The crew that stole it makes 80%..but 20% still goes to the one who originally did the work so that way, Doing the Voyages your self is better pay but if you get it stolen at the end you don't go completely empty handed

    Hey rare I’m just saying I get how you made the kraken hard to fight but every time I see it on the brig or the galleon it wraps around the stairs that go down to the map area and it stays their for a long time even while hitting it canstantly and it stays and I’ve sunk from it every time because of that reason so if you can pls make it to were the kraken doesn’t wrap around that area so you can get down and repair the boat without it sinking and when it grabbed me my camera wasn’t letting me move it left or right but only up and down so when I sunk I almost lost all my loot I had if you read this I will like it if you could fix some of these things pls

    your weapons are still very messed up... having a delay on the gun swap is fine reduces the instant killing people can do but the pull out on the sword is to fast compared to the guns also i feel there shouldnt be a delay pulling a gun out after sprinting... say i had my blunderbuss out then i start sprinting after i get to my target i should be able to instantly shoot at any point in my sprint. obviously stop the sprint when the shot is fired but should'nt have to stop sprinting wait for the delay then be able to fire. and wtf is with increasing a delay on miss swings on the sword there is already i long enough delay???.>>?>?>?> like how about nerf the stun on the sword your choices are super confusing to me

  • Brian Figures
    Brian Figures 3 months ago +1

    one of the biggest issues is the hit rendering on the kegs of barrell skeletons there is no way i should be hitting the skeleton 80% of my shots and the other 20% either miss or hit the barrel somthings very wack

  • Shalim Hasan Rakhim Habibi

    i think it’s dope that u guys keep everyone updated on what’s going on but it’d be way cooler if u guys actually added something into the game. you’ve been saying that you’ll add a bunch of things for months now but there’s still nothing. there’s still not much to do. also nerf the gunpowder and the sniper skeletons. (it makes no sense that when ur carrying a gunpowder barrel u move very slow but the skeletons can outrun u) they’re are really annoying and make the game less fun imo. it should be possible to do things solo. i play w friends but sometimes i just wanna go solo but the game punishes u for that. i love this game but at it’s current state i’m gonna get bored of it soon

    The sword fighting is so boring man, the arena mode hasn't come out and I feel that u guys are ruining it with this boring combat. How is a solo player suppose to fight 3 or 4 guys with a sword? Before u could fight an entire crew by yourself if u had better aim, but now they can be super noobs and still kill you.. I guess that's why u did this changes...

    Fix the game. Whenever the message pops up on screen for what I'm guessing is a server switch it always glitches out the boat. Me and a friend were gathering the loot from a skull fort and when the message popped up our boat started sailing away with the anchor down. Whenever that message pops up it ALWAYS glitches the boat
