You may remember back in June we had a Hot Topic about creating a Pirate Code for the Sea of Thieves Community. Want to refresh your memory, you can check it out here!
Our Pirates’ Code is a social contract that outlines how the community expects players to engage with each other, both in-game and in all parts of our community. Think of it as a set of guidelines helping to ensure that Sea of Thieves remains one of the most accessible, welcoming and friendly places to play anywhere online!
We’ve been busy since then! Our team scoured through all your feedback and pulled out the main themes eg, inclusiveness and communication. We’ve spent some time putting together the first version of what our Pirate Code could be! What’s really important to us is that is code is a collaborative effort between the Sea of Thieves team and our community. That means YOU!
Take a look at the below and let us know what you think!
ARTICLE 1: THE SEA CALLS TO ALL
Everyone is welcome on the Sea of Thieves regardless of age, gender, race, sexuality, nationality or creed
ARTICLE 2: THE SEA UNITES US AS ONE COMMUNITY
Outside of the heat of battle or piracy on the high seas, all crews shall bond together as a community of likeminded souls
ARTICLE 3: DISPUTES ARE SETTLED UPON THE WAVES
None shall quarrel or overly dissent against another crew, but let every engagement be settled by sword, pistol and good seamanship
ARTICLE 4: ALL CREWMATES ARE EQUAL
Let each crewmate be respected as equal, free to follow their own bearing, speak openly and vote in the affairs of the voyage
ARTICLE 5: THE CREW BOND IS SACRED
Those that betray their crew and ship through griefing or trolling shall be sent to the brig
ARTICLE 6: RESPECT NEW PIRATES AND THEIR VOYAGE AHEAD
May the old legends help to forge new ones. Treat new pirates with respect and share your knowledge
ARTICLE 7: THOSE THAT CHEAT SHALL BE PUNISHED
Pirates who show bad form and cheat against their crew and others will surely face bitter hardships and punishments
