Some players are pirates, some players are content. People have to pick.
"Oh yeah you guys, other players are content, they aren't even worthy of being classed as people!"
"... Why are people calling me toxic? And why isn't the game being as popular!?"
Dude it's fine to go with the whole "Yeah this game appeals to X kind of people", but then you, or people like you, don't get to then at the same time grandstand about how this game is super unique and special and totally not like other games.
If this game appeals to people who like survival games (That tend to be constant open world PvP), you don't then get to in the same breath say that it is a game where time investment means nothing and that everyone sings kumbaya afterwards. Everyone who has played any of these types of games in their lifetime knows what kind of audience these games attract, Sea of Thieves is no different.
Edit: And referring to people as "Content" and having absolutely no care for anyone or the game's playerbase, but yourself and your enjoyment isn't going to win you any points in convincing that the game is going to be a long-lasting experience. Well it might be, but only with murderhobos as its constant playerbase.
I didn't remove their classification as a person, they just aren't a pirate. And that is not being toxic. Here, I'll give you a list of things that are toxic and not toxic in Sea of Thieves.
Being a degenerate over chat, in game mic/text or xbox live messages.
Sabotaging your own crew.
Spawn camping WHILE bucketing for the sake of killing.
Hunting the same boat over and over on purpose.
Hunting boats down.
Sinking boats at the outpost, they are likely in the way(fresh spawns) or trying to cash out.
Spawn camping to syphon supplies.
Spawn camping to guarantee the sink because there are only a few holes in the boat. (think small ones in a bottom deck)
Killing other pirates.
Stealing other pirates' loot.
We are allowed to and encouraged to fight other players. We do not need to alliance, we actively turn them down when people try. We do not need to let you go on your merry old way. We will chase you to the ends of the map to find out if you have loot. We are also allowed to say that this game is unique, because it is. There is no other game like it. This game is for the PvPvE crowd. If you only want to partake in half of that, it sounds like its your problem. Sure the crew I roll with does more PvP than PvE but we will do fleets(they are still kind a fun and offer good loot). I will usually shoot over and solo forts/ashen lords while they look for more boats to sink. Additionally, especially when there are new ledger rewards, we will set up a bait boat. Reapers Mark, Athena emissary(or other), and grind out loot hoping a fight comes for us. Fighting people is fun.
As for your last line. Why should I care about other crews fun? I don't when I play any other online PvP game. And why wouldn't this game be a long-lasting experience for the people it was designed for? I've been here for 4+ years with 4000+ hours. I know many like me. I am not trying to win points, I understand the type of game Sea of Thieves is.
