    The Great Fishing PSA


  • How is this even allowed? Like honestly is the dev team this dumb or ignorant to allow other players to camp a tall tales mission spot? I've done The Cursed Rogue now 3 times without completion because everytime I get an item, someone comes along and blows us apart. Then if I'm on the boss, someone can destroy our ship and then take our skull... Is this actually happening? Make it so we can go into passive mode like GTA, or is that too advanced for this team? There is no point in playing a game that supports griefing.

  • Like the title says, are Skeleton ships damaged the same way as our ships are now in the Anniversary Update? For example, will shooting their mast cause it to fall? Does shooting their capstan drop their anchor? Or are they completely unchanged and have to be dealt with the old fashioned way?

    It would be cool if they were affected by this update, as they technically got indirectly buffed by it, (having your anchor dropped every 5 seconds by a cannonball is super annoying), but so far I haven't been able to really test this in game. If anyone can answer this question it would be appreciated.

  • So, i've been doing the tall tales number 7 and when im about to dig up the coffin to the farryman this happends, agian and agian and agian....
    And i have reset the game and nothing helps.
    HELP ME!

  • I don’t know if I’m the only one who’s experienced this, but once I get to the island to pick up the enchanted lantern and open up the chest, it says press f to pick it up but nothing happens. I tried this multiple times even at both islands and just can’t seem to pick up the lantern I tried picking up other items and I was able to pick those up. I’ve restarted my game and tried with no success

  • Just now, Playing arena, chasing a pirate on land who was carrying a chest and I was empty handed in full sprint and I couldn't catch him up for half the length of wanderers refuge.
    How long are console players going to have to have this game ruined by being forced to play with pc players?


  • So, I was playing with a friend today, we were doing the event of the gold shores or something like that, we got into a Aventure server thinking that we could finally have some peace meanwhile we play, after a while when we were about to finish our quest a galleon comes to chase us, we didn't had anything except a mermaid gem, I told them "I'll give what I have, but please let us alone" we are female players so, the kid about 13 or 14 years old screamed [Mod edited] I told them "then just go to the arena server if you want to fight against other players and let us alone" then the other player of his crew just called me [Mod edited] I was like "seriously?" then the boy said [Mod edited] and it kept calling me bad word and spawn killing me, my friend got away, till they sunk out ship and I spawned elsewhere, very far, we left the server to another one. Is not the first time I encounter this kind of mess up kids, but what it bugs me that they just come in and offend anyone calling them words, that's not cool.

  • Hello people, since the big patch a few weeks ago i can't start the game. Everytime i start the game, the loading screen appears for 10-20 seconds and then the game just crashes down, as if nothing happened. I tried all the suggested methods to solve the problem like reinstalling it, set the time zone manually/automatic, and so on but it still doesn't work. Does anybody have an idea how to solve it?

    Thanks


  • Y'AAAARRRRRR!

    Former 'day one' player here. I initially got the game with a free two week trial of the game pass thingmebob but decided to 'walk the plank' and finally grab the game after seeing all the new content that's been added over the last year.

    Game was already updated... (err, thanks... windows store???) so I loaded up and everything seemed fine.

    Got to the splash screens, had the famililar music playing in the background of the bar while it connected to servers. This is where it all goes wrong.

    The very moment it switches to 'zoom in' if you will to my character screen the audio completely cuts out and just turns to almost a static sound. Constant crackling. Entering the game itself doesn't solve the issue. I tested hitting my sword against some objects and could hear a change in pitch of the indiscernable crackling, so 'audio' is playing but it's completely borked.

    Running a brand new Steelseries Arctis 5 RGB headset, audio is absolutely fine in everything else. Been playing The Division 2, DCS and War Thunder for a couple weeks with absolutely no issues.

    I had a tinker with the audio settings in game, nothing seemed to have an affect.

    After finally getting the game 'proper' I would be grateful if someone could give me a hand (or a hook) here. Really eager to jump back into the open seas.

    System spec:
    Intel i7 5820k
    16Gb Corsair Vengence DDR4 (2400Mhz)
    Nvidia GTX970 4Gb
    Win 10 Pro

    Cheers o7.

  • So I've noticed since the update that I haven't had a single skelly ship spawn on me while sailing... not one. I'm wondering if maybe they turned them off for a while so people can get through tall tales a bit easier? Has anyone else actually had one spawn on them since the update? I only play solo so maybe they aren't spawning on slops anymore again so people can finish tall tales, maybe I've just been lucky (or unlucky depending on how you look at it it) and they've just been spawning on other players every time I've been playing? Just curious if anyone has concrete info on this.

  • Hello,
    I haven't played SOT in a while. I just got back into it recently. I'm having trouble with the new voyages like tall tails ect. I know some places show island names and others show pictures. Any tips to help on understanding the voyages better would be greatly appreciated. I dont want to look on YouTube for walkthroughs like people have told me to. I'd like to get the quest completed as my own doing.

    Thanks in advance!!!

  • The tall tale tells me to go to f 12 but there's nothing for the tale here. PLEASE HELP.

  • ok I have had this happen 2 times now and these things take a long time so I am talking like 5+ hours wasted. We are doing the Constellation quest and twice now we had the first gem and getting next to the second island it disappears and the entire quest is just gone. I can't keep doing this until I learn how to prevent this from happening.
    To answer your question it has taken me so long cause I am just kinda messing about doing other stuff and fishing and playing with a friend who hasn't played since launch. and the 5+ hrs is including both attempts. I suppose I could try to just do it quick, but that's not really how I want to play the game

  • Tonight I sailed into sanctuary with a crying chest and a meg hitting me at full speed. I load the row boat and pop off letting the boat sink. I admittedly was greedy tonight with 30+ chests to turn in. As soon as my ship sinks a sloop spawns and two new players of course take half my stuff. I don’t whine about being robbed but, mechanically speaking this seems a tad unusual. That said, this may be normal as my ship did sink and I had a solid 3 minutes before the new one spawned.

    Normal? unlucky? Both?


  • A few minutes ago I was playing SoT when a skeleton cannon hit me as I was leaving it’s island 4 or 5 times (hit all of its shots from so far I couldn’t see the cannon.) I repair the ship as my boat is going towards he next island and the second I finish the repairs I am greeted with another Skelton cannon on this island. Before I was close enough to even think about dropping the anchor a skeleton shoots a cannon and hits me an kills me. I respawn and my boat is half underwater and half on land. I repairthe whole boat but the skeleton cannon had unlimited cannon and I can’t repair even turn the boat around as I have to constantly repair the ship. I eventually run out of wood (which I had stockpile a ton of) and my boat sinks along with about 5-6 chests. There was absolutely nothing I could have done, do I just have to memorize where these cannons are if I want to be able to play solo because I can avoid another play but these can hit u from so far u can’t see them and once hit once you have to completely run away if you want to live.


  • Hello everyone, play a lot of time sea of thieves since your first steps, and the truth is that this error never happened to me. After the last patch I suffered many disconnections with the name "AllmondBeard" game on brazil servers with a ping of 80 and in other cases of 60 and out of nowhere I disconnected from the game. I had to do the missions more than 6 times because I was disconnected and I can not connect again, does anyone know how to repair this?

  • Ahoy!

    I'm trying to get all the tall tales commendations so i'm completing every tale 5 times.
    I've just finished the 1st time of a Cursed rogue, but when i tried it a second time the book at plunder outpost didn't spawn. Anybody know why that is? and how to fix it?

  • Is there any way to know how many hours I spent playing the Sea of Thieves? Already searched for the Xbox menu and I have not found

  • I have been playing sea of thieves since launch, although I admit I took a multi month hiatus over winter. I have a question for the many more knowledgeable pirates than I.

    My question is compound, and here it is. First, and please don't thrown a banana at me for asking, is it just for use with your mic or does it also increase the distance in which you can see the chat wheel text?

    Second, must you hold RT or the PC equivalent to make it work or is simply holding it in your hands enough? This question stems from my thinking that it DID effect chat wheel distance so I am trying to hold RT, Press Up on D-Pad then adjust the RS to select my words and even "X" for more options at times.

    So, am I just another drunken pirate or is there more to this horn than I can obviously comprehend?

  • Hello there! I hope your day is going well, and that I'm finding you at a good time.
    I have been playing Sea of Thieves for a few weeks now, and I have realized that I cannot find any other players out on the seas. I have looked at the main map that is found on the ship, but I still cannot find other players. Upon opening the game, I select a sloop, and open crews, hoping I will see other players. I invite my friend and load into the world. Still, I can't find other players... Does anyone happen to know the fix to this? I have always wanted to get into a ship vs. ship fight, but I just can't find anyone. Does anyone know the fix to this? Please let me know! I would be quite grateful!
    Cheers!

  • But I must delete my existing one. I know I will lost everything, I have almost lvl 25 rep with everyone, like five clothing sets, and completed 4 stories of the Tall Tales but I really needed some help from you guys.

    Should I start all over again? I have the game since December, it was a gift, but I rushed my character creation so I could play with my brother. The thing is that I always took a LOT of time customizing my character until I feel good playing with it. I really get involved with my characters as is the adventure that I'm going to play with them, in Monster Hunter I took almost 5 hours designing my character, the same in MMO when is related to choosing a name. I really love the game but I feel unconfortable like, if it wasnt myself. The character that I have is pretty cool, is funny but idk I just feel weird.

    Do I lose all the dobloon items that I've bought too? I just have the christmas cannons that are like a fish and the wheel.

  • Hi guys,
    to get some new parts for the ship or other accessoires you have to get all achievements in one chapter of the story, e.g. legendary storyteller.
    There's one "complete the story" and it says "1/5" after finishing a chapter. Does that mean you need to do the same chapter 5 times to unlock the achievements?

    Thanks.
