I love Sea of Thieves and was so excited to play the Hungering Deep content. I finally got on with my brother last night and worked through all the initial quests.
However we were very frustrated to find that in the end we need to somehow team up with 3 other people, and in the world of Sea of Thieves that is extremely rare.
The speaking trumpet doesn't help, because even though we've tried multiple times moving from Party to Game chat resulted in us unable to hear each other, let alone anyone else. We fooled with settings to no avail.
Then everytime we head to Merric to see if anyone wants to team up there are ships there that are only interested in killing us.
Asking for help on here or in looking for group doesn't help either, as even though I can get a 4 man crew together I have to work with someone else for the 5th, and you can't meet someone in game, because there is no guarantee you'll end up in the same server.
Setting aside the other numerous issues with this new content, my question is how am I supposed to complete it? How did others do so without being able to set up a meet online AND in game chat not functioning?
We only have two weeks to complete this and this is looking less likely by the minute. I find my enthusiasm for the game, and upcoming expansions, greatly diminished.
Any help would be appreciated.
