  • License and Use of Your Feedback
    Rare and Microsoft makes a lot of different products and services, and we can’t be obligated to you if something that we create resembles your Feedback. We are pleased that you want to share Feedback, but we also need to be clear about the legal issues.

    When you submit comments, suggestions, input, ideas, feedback, or any related materials (“Feedback”), your Feedback is given for free and you are giving us rights to use the Feedback in any way we want. If you expect to be paid or do not want to give Rare or Microsoft these rights, do not submit your Feedback.

    Specifically, by making any submission, you are granting to Rare and Microsoft full rights to use your Feedback as it sees fit, in any Rare or Microsoft product or service, without any obligation or restriction of any kind, including, without limitation, any obligation or restriction related to intellectual property rights, confidentiality, or contracts. When you submit Feedback, you grant to Rare and Microsoft a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, unrestricted license, including sublicense rights, to use, copy, distribute, publicly display and perform, sell, market, make available to the public, practice, or otherwise exploit and commercialize any and all of your intellectual property rights in any form and/or of any type that is or may at some future time be associated with your Feedback. So think carefully before you submit to us anything that is protected by intellectual property – including patents, trademarks, copyrights, rights of publicity, or other IP – because, by doing so, you are granting us an IP license.

    We don’t have any obligation to use or respond to your Feedback. We might use your Feedback, we might not use your Feedback, or we might do something (or have already done something) that seems related to your Feedback but which we created independently. In all cases, we will not pay you compensation or give you credit or be obligated to limit how we use or don’t use the Feedback.

  • Ahoy Forum Community! As you all know, Sea of Thieves is an open, shared world adventure game (or SWAG) rich with detailed locations to explore, objectives to pursue, and other players to interact with!

    From the Sea of Thieves Home Page:

    Sea of Thieves is a new type of multiplayer game that delivers all you need to live the free-roaming pirate life. Whether adventuring as a group or sailing solo, you'll encounter other crews... but will they be friends or foes, and how will you respond?

    Whether you want to be an explorer searching for treasure, new lands - or new friends, or a cutthroat searching for your next plunder and the notoriety it may bring, the magic of Sea of Thieves is that it allows for many types of players to create shared experiences.

    It has been exciting to see a wide range of discussions around player preference and experience that revolve around multiple play types! However, some of these topics are beginning to devolve from constructive debates and personal feedback/opinions based on in game experiences into antagonistic diatribes that target individual players and groups.

    Global Moderators and Deckhands will be redirecting and locking topics related to the following subjects into their own mega-threads to allow other discussions to be cultivated and not overwhelmed. If you see a topic that should be directed to a mega-thread, let the OP know or flag it and let us know!

    As a reminder, the Pirate Code is not just guidelines (though the reference really never gets old), but the rules of the community and game that we expect all members to abide by when participating on the Forums. Any member who fails to abide by the code may find themselves put in the brig, or removed from the community.

    Thank you.

  • Thank you all for your feedback and suggestions in our previous mega thread, as we have made some new changes to the Barrels in Patch 1.2.5, we're opening a new mega thread to gather your feedback on these changes.

    @khaleesibot said in Patch Notes Discussion 1.2.5:

    Patch Notes - 1.2.5


    After feedback shared with us about the changes made to Barrels and inventory management in Patch 1.2.4, Design Director Mike Chapman gave further insight into why the changes were made and what the future holds for these systems.

    In Patch 1.2.5, we see the first of our quality of life improvements to the barrel system. These improvements to empty barrel identification and resource level increases are the first of many improvements we have planned for future updates.

    • Bilge Rat Doubloons - To reward pirates who keep the skeleton scourge at bay, Doubloons for Cursed Crews Commendations will remain available to earn even after the Cursed Crews Bilge Rat Adventure ends.
    • Empty Barrel Tooltip - Barrels now display a tooltip to indicate they are empty. Players will no longer need to interact with a barrel in order to discover there is nothing inside.
    • Resource Balancing - Barrels are less likely to be found empty in the world, helping to reducing the time taken to restock ships.
    • Quick Menu - The "Equipment" and "Resources" tabs within the Quick Menu have been swapped around as the "Resources" tab is used most commonly and should be the easiest to access.

    Here's previous discussions on this topic:
