I just want to share a bit of my experience with Sea of Thieves community several days ago. Finally gathered the courage to speak up about this and letting the other people know that there is a nice random in this community that will help you no matter what
For these past few months, I've been into a lot of problems. Family issues, work issues and a lot more than you could've imagine. It's obviously taking a toll on my mental health that I've suffered a lot of suicidal thoughts and I've made up my mind to kill myself last week. And for some reason, i jumped into Sea of Thieves, wanted to see and play my favorite game for the last time ever. And I'm a solo, i don't really have any good friends to play Sea of Thieves, so i jumped into my favorite sloop with the Sea of Sands cosmetics, and i head straight to my favorite island, Sailor's bounty. I literally played the game mindlessly, just walk, and do like weird stuff there, basically, I've spent my entire sessions venting out my rage.
And, in the horizon, I see a galleon coming towards me, and i immediately checked my map table, it was a reaper. A grade 2 reaper. And i was like "Okay, this is it, they'll kill me and i can log out forever" basically i was ready for everything
They crashed into my ship, jumped out from their gal, with one particular guy was a hot mic, screaming like a pirate and just beginning to attack me, but i was like, sitting there, just watching as they killed me.
When i respawned, for some reason they were repairing my ship. One guy said to me, asking if everything was alright since he never saw someone just stand there and not fighting back. I have nothing to hide so i tell them about my plan and my last time playing Sea of Thieves. They thought i was leaving the game since I was bored, but i told them that i planned to kill myself after i logged out and i told them on what's going on irl. They literally went mad, started to scold me about my plan, but i was prepared for it. Like i was ready to do whatever i wanted after i'm done with the game.
One guy started to continuously killed me, he told me that if I kept talking about killing myself, he will continuously kill me so i won't log out, the other crew for some reason found me on Facebook by looking up my game name, started messages me by sending a lot of memes, like proper dank & fresh memes. They literally went crazy to prevent me logged out from the game. One of them, told me to join them on the galleon. So i joined them since i was curious enough to see what they wanted to do. and so we began to sail, circling the seas, finding other player and we went on a full alliance server with like.. almost 8 to 9 people, all of them know what happens to me and tried their best to kept me from logging off. We went scouring the islands for gunpowder barrels and do a chain explosion, we opens the glitterbeard secret hideout, we went to do Fort of Fortune together, we went into the Devil's roar, and get all of our ship sunk by a volcano, we went into Tribute peak without the shroudbreaker, basically the most random thing you've could imagine and it makes me happy. We also do that weird circling on the ferryman lantern, like some sort of ritual on a campfire. And when I realized, I already played Sea of Thieves more than 6 hours with them and I've forget my plan already. When its finally the time for us to log out, one of the galleon guy told me that he will never forgive me if i ever killed myself. And until today, he kept messages me just to check if i still alive
It's not everyday I encountered these kind of thing. I'm very used to be alone until now, I've found the best friends on a game i loved so much, and they've helped me went through all these [mod edit] I've experience. So Tommy, if you're on this community, I just wanna say, Thank You for helping me!
