    im late but since microsoft was there, id like to see a rent to own feature in the store. I cant afford to drop the full 60 at one time but ive been able to do gamepass. but i only play sea of thieves from game pass. with that said i think a rent to own feature. pay 10 bucks a month until its paid and its yours. if you cant make a payment, your progress would be saved but would have no access to launch said game. not sure if its even possible but just an idea that could makeit to the right person.

    I remember the first time I loaded this game up, my first ship battle, this game has had an amazing impact on my life, I've made so many friends on this game, you've made the best game of 2018 in my opinion rare, it's so amazing just to look where we are now, and where we were when the game launched, thank you for such an awesome game, cheers!

    Your game is broken. Pc players have a complete and total advantage over console player. I won't play again until I know I can choose to only play with other console players. I'm not the only one that I know on Xbox that has stopped playing due to the unfair advantage of p.c. players.

    I had the best fight I've ever seen a few days ago there was 2 galleons in a alliance when fighting the one galleon another ambushed us we ran into another brig we teamed up to fight. Skeleton ship spawned and joined the fight. We sunk so I had to chill on the other brig and sink the skeleton ship and the galleons, and we finished the skull fort we took from them

  • Winston Ralphs
    Winston Ralphs 6 months ago

    The ghost ships are cool, but I think they're a little bit overkill for new players(like me). Either some tips would be great or maybe dial them back(still keep them challenging, but not so impossible that I'm going to get sunk every time I encounter one?) I mean I love the game so much and I trust y'alls judgement that's just my only real grievance. That and maybe a little more enemy variety. Also, the skellymans with the exploding barrels are a bit rampant.
    I guess the point is that it's a dangerous world, but it just seems extreme to a new player lol. Either way I'm gonna keep playing, it's a fun experience and I absolutely adore sailing the open seas.

    2 be honest, I was rly bored after few weeks. But I still like SoT! And the last Update brings me back, it's not 100% the game I want - yet, but it's absolutely on the right way. And u guyz are so likely and passioned and I'm rly curious for alle the things are coming. Absolutely would buy the game again^^

    hey! i got an great idea for a content update, (ahem) Bones of war: four medaling young pirates have accidentally resurrected the most dangerous threat the sea of thieves has ever seen yet : skeleton man of war ships! each being lead by it's own specific skeleton captain and crew. crews will have to be careful as these monstrous ships of the undead (along with there own small fleet of previous skeleton ships) wage war across the waves! discover the deep rivalry of these cursed pirate crews as you try to survive... Bones of war!

    Firstly, I love this game. It's amazing to see it grow and develop. For the future I would love more info on anything you can share with how you run your SDLC. How do you prioritize user feedback? Where and how do do know when to you cap features? What tools do you use for PBI and bug tracking? How long do you test? What kind of stages do you move builds through? I imagine the lessons learned would help devs working in all mediums.

  • MrTehPuppy
    MrTehPuppy 6 months ago

    I do want to call your guest Mike out on one comment he made in this podcast. At one point he says (paraphrasing here) "we are just trying to give people want they want. They want more exclusives, so we're doing more exclusives."
    ...who? Who is saying "give us more exclusives"? Because I have a hard time believing that its consumers saying "yes, please take away more choices from us by making more exclusives." I can see why a publisher like Microsoft would want more exclusives, sure. But theres no way consumers are asking for that. Not in any meaningful numbers anyway

    I'll be real with you guys. I had fallen away from SoT a few months back simply because I wasnt having fun anymore. The game had become a tedious grind that felt more like a chore than a game. BUT, I dipped back in to try out this most recent update and I gotta say, you guys have snagged my interests again! This most recent update us quite a blast. Keep the good stuff coming guys n gals!

  • Mike Young
    Mike Young 6 months ago

    I wanted to like the game as I love pirate games and I'm probably in the minority but I wanted the world to be about more than just killing other pirates. Everyone's a pirate. I don't mind the danger of pvp but I don't want it 24/7 everywhere including in a town. There are no places where people congregate and interact. This makes the game less than alive. I get it, there's lots to do and for some attacking everything that moves is fun. Anyway, this is why I don't play.

    Sea of Thieves is GOTY! Too bad this garbage industry tries to smear every Xbox console exclusive to try and make PS4 shovelware movie games look good. Xbox by comparison tries to create unique games for a variety of genres instead of licensed game shovelware and bad clone open worlds that make bad copies of Arkham, Ubisoft and Dark souls clunky gamplay ideas. Hacks. Been a great year with Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, Forza Horizon 4! Great trifecta! Look forward to future updates!

    the game is pretty fun! but when you play you feel it incomplete, you need more content to find even if you re not maaking quest, and a lot of stuff to find, not only chests, rom, or plants, if you keep updating the game, it could be a perfect game

    The game has gone a long way but much is still needed. To say 4 large updates were added... wouldn’t go that far. A giant shark and a drum was added on the first one. I hardly call that “huge”. Arena doesn’t do much for the main game... which still needs a lot. The main problem, voyages, are still repetitive. Give me that good lore and rich story building mechanic. Give me mini game riddles and platforming.

    I was alone with my sloop, getting some chest from an island, and I so a skeleton fort, and there was a galleon attacking it, I kept searching the island and found, a rowboat. Leave my sloop hidden and with the rowboat, when to the fort, after they was done with the Capitan, hide the rowboat behind the galleon, deck it and star getting the goods while there was loading them, hidden on the back part of the ship, when I was done (i left a few things)got back on my rowboat and go back to my sloop, but I didn't had resources, and while I was heading to the outpost, a skeleton ship came out the water, right next to me, and shoot me out of my ship into the water, I catch a marmid but my ship sink, but I didn't die loaded the goods that were coming up on the water, on the rowboat again, and and use it to go to the outpost, and sold all $$$$!)

  • Xylr - World Famous Hacker

    Hey guys, I'm really loving where the game is now with shrouded spoils. It feels like there's something to fight or do all the time. And I feel the Skeleton ships, megaladons and krakens all drop a good amount of loot. I'm actually excited to start collecting doubloons and things again.

    I have an amazing story to share! Me and my friend where fighting the kracken 2.0 right next to plunder outpost and he died and we sunk but I lived. As we had sunk a sloop just joined the server and was right at plunder outpost. So I swam over to it and stole the ship to finnish off the beast!!! But the guy came back and I expected him to fight me but we teamed up and defated it after taking many blows to our ship and saving eachother from its sucking tentacles. In the end we where victorious and we drank grog, played music and danced amongst our hard earned loot!!! Btw he was xbox and I am PC this game is amazing I can make unlikely friendships with cross-platform!!! This game is by far one of my favorite games!!! Keep that content coming!!!

      @Captain Funk GOTY is a popularity contest. It has nothing to do with quality of a game. A free game is at such an advantage in this scenario because of how many players it draws for being free. This game is obviously if higher quality than fortnite

      A lot has happened since launch. Push aside any opinion you formed 8 months ago, I highly suggest giving it another try.

    I have a question. Why can't players keep the loot they find in the world of Sea of Thieves in their ship? Each new start for a game is from scratch. 🙁
    I think that is a huge opportunity. Splitting the reputation perhaps, Players may lose a small fraction of their reputation for not turning it in, but still have their rep increase for finding the loot and defeating the bosses.
    Also, will law enforcement skins be released? (Red Coats)

      Play Elite Dangerous. And that conclusion will comes VERY quickly. Having to start your game by traveling somewhere first before doing anything IS NOT fun.

      If you just hoard until you see a ship and leave game, there is no risk. It's also server based, the second the server goes lose everything.

    Interesting that Minecraft was mentioned, as I always believed SOT was similar to it in a way. Minecraft never used to be popular in its beginnings, but grew over time. SOT is not popular, but is growing (maybe not as strong as Minecraft) with updates. I think Rare need to continue to drive forward with a vision and goal similar to that of Minecraft's.

      Sea of Thieves is somewhat popular. It was maybe a bit more popular than now but it will continue to grow I'm sure.

      It’s the only gaming community I know that will kill and slaughter each other but then come together to discuss and show love for said game. It’s just the best community I’ve been apart of. Streamer light you Hitbotc also help bring this game even more life and help me get through some rough days

    Sea Of Thieves,
    A game which when I first discovered it - I instantly fell in love. I bought the game about a month after launch - after a lot of media disappointment etc. However, even though I recognised the faults of the game - I still appreciate it! This game is in its early beginnings, still rising up. The game is getting continuous updates, and I hope that'll never stop - as this game has potential to be 200 times better! So much content that is possible to be added in and make the game even better - Rare has been amazing to add so many things since launch - but they need to drive forward and carry on and never stop.

    Where can I enter the fanfiction contest? Having a hard time finding more details.

      Found it. It's under the Athena's Fortune contest. Deadline is today. I already had a fanfiction written which is 1300 words over the max word count stipulated in their rules, but here is to hoping they accept my submission anyway.

    I experienced the fog for the first time yesterday! It was awesome! Great job! It added a cool dimension where I could use it as a tactical advantage, but it also built a real sense of danger. It was so awesome!
