• Okay, so I realize that the title of this thread can be a little dramatic but just hear me out on this. I have a lot of points to get through and I'll try to keep them as punctual and to the point as possible.
    Firstly, the biggest issue, content. Sea of Thieves was a game with very little content upon release driving many new players to the genre away. That started to change when you brought more content with the first update "The Hungering Deep". It was only onwards and upwards from there with the additions of Skeleton Ships, Increased Fort Spawns, The Devils Roar, and Improved Megaladon/Kraken encounters. However, this is when things took a turn for the worst with one exception. I'll bring up the one positive first, being the Mercenary Voyages, not all of them however. The Mercenary Voyages were only partly good as you had some that had specific routes, meaning that players would have to encounter others along their path. Like what you had in the early days for summoning the Megaladon in The Hungering Deep and hunting the Skeleton Ship in Cursed Crews. Its wise in a big open world game to 'sometimes' bring in quests that force people to go up against others in order to earn a great reward. BUT, continuing on from this notice the use of the word 'sometimes' previously'. I say this as it can get boring if the routes for quests are always exactly the same which is what you got right in your most recent Tall Tales, kind of. The Second main point I'm trying to get at with all this is that all your previous content updates have been LT (Limited Time), so anything you earn or buy from Dukes Shop such as the Wailing Barnacle Set, or the Forsaken Ashes ship sets become legendary in a sort of way. All this 'watch a stream for some basic hull, sails, figurehead nonsense is just that, nonsense. Introduce them into the game, give people a reason to actually play and for the love of god, give your game a shops for kids to spend real money so that you are actually earning money. Might provide bit more incentive for you to stop dooming your own game. I'm bored of typing now but even just those few points should give you a bit of clarity I hope.

    Or comment on this post
    If ur sending a mesage just tell me u saw this post

  • Recently, players have taken to crewing the highly maneuverable sloops and simply depositing a crewmate in the water near a ship, whether at port, anchorage or even on the move.

    This is particularly frustrating for smaller crews, especially other sloops and brigantines, because the player will simply kill you, then remain on your ship and repeatedly kill you as you spawn.

    This happens fairly frequently, and makes combat with other players less than enjoyable. Not only that, but it poisons interaction with other players, especially when your ship is docked at an outpost and someone slips a gunpowder barrel aboard, which for some reason can sink a ship in under a minute. There have been times where I have simply spawned in mere moments before, and can’t leave the tavern without being murdered endlessly, having yet to even see my ship after logging on.

    My suggestions are as follows: Provide a short period of damage immunity when respawning. (A blunderbuss kills you instantly, so you have no time to react as it is now.)

    Secondly, make outposts non-combat zones, or at least provide them with some sort of defense on behalf of the companies. (It only makes sense that they would not want trouble when doing business. Perhaps they can have guards or cannons to shoot at aggressors. Maybe even patrol ships.)

    Finally, allow a bounty to be placed on enemy players, marking them on the map for all to see. (The bounty could come from your own funds, and be rather spendy or have some other penalty to avoid abuse.)


  • Feedback + Suggestions

    1. Option to change your pirate (Instead of deleting your current one with your progress)

    2. Guilds. Perhaps they could cost a specific amount of coins to start the one who purchases the guild could be the captain

    3. Ship names. Being able to name your ship (Like the in game shipwrecks the magpies wing/morningstar)

    4. More passive undersea wildlife to make the environment better. (Manta rays, whales, dolphins, octopuses, sea snakes)

    5. Ashen versions of more things (Ashen version of chest of sorrows where it cries boiling water). Ashen enemies like (Ashen skeletons, Ashen megalodons, ashen krakens?)

    6. More stuff to deliver to the order of souls. You can deliver chests and trinkets to the gold hoarders and to the merchants you cna deliver animals, cargo run items and crates. But to the order of souls you can only really deliver skulls so I feel like there need to be more items that you can hand in.

    7. More curses. If they expand upon the curses they can add the skeleton curse where one of your hands or legs turns into bones. Also perhaps the curse of those mysterious strangers in the tavern could be something pirate legends get.

    8. Bounty hunts

    9. Mermaids. These could guard shipwrecks.

    10. Commendations/loot for PVP players. I'm not sure if this would make the game more toxic or not but for now I would like to earn money from sinking ships since nowadays almost no ships have loot due to the Tall tales.

    11. Different tall tale stories. So the first set of tall tales were about the shores of gold, however I think it would be interesting if RARE could make a storyline about the ancients (See captain falcore on youtube for lore videos)

    12. This may be too much to ask but an icy region would be very nice. I've seen a lot of people requesting this and I feel like it would bring a lot of old and new players back to the game. The theme could be vikings since the game is not Sea of Pirates, it's Sea of THIEVES.

    13. Health bars for skeleton lords

  • In the future I would like to see an option to create a crew/guild where you cool let your teammates into. Here are some ideas for customization.

    1. The crew needs a name. And once you have named it this would mean that your crew would be unique in the sea of thieves, and nobody could take the name.

    2. You would be able to add the crew name on to your ship with the ship customization. Much like the wreck of the Magpies wing or the Morningstar ingame.

    3. The person who makes the crew/guild is the captain and could make certain people coleader (stuff like that) Certain roles would have different powers such as being able to kick a player off the crew weather he or she is being toxic.

    4. Once you have made the guild/crew you can put on a title. For example: The captain of the Morningstar crew would have the title: Captain of the Morningstar crew while Coleaderz would have : Coleader of the Morningstar crew.

    I feel like this would make the game really feel special, since there would be player based crews instead of the NPC crews such as the Sea Dogs or Bilge rats. I really would like if this suggestion would come to life! Imagine coming across a famous SOT twitch streamer with his crew and challenging he/she to a battle. If you like my idea please upvote it so the devs can see it!

  • I am running a competition on my channel to win your very own real life Stronghold Skull! The competition ends soon, so watch the video to find out how to enter!

  • So my friends and I started playing SoT this week and are really excited about this beautiful game. While we will still enjoy the game for a few more weeks, we already have the feeling that at some point there will be missing long term motivation to play the game.
    I think there needs to be more to SoT, things you can achieve to keep playing. So here are some suggestions:

    The only thing you can grind right now are cosmetics which really doesnt change too much. In my opinion, it would be great if there were upgrades to your ship or your weapons (for example mortars or a ram). This should be balanced with the standard weapons and just add more variety to the fight and long term motivation as well.
    Also, there should be a better leveling system, for example unlocking items with level. That keeps players grinding.

    I read a bit into the forums to find out what the community wants from this game and I recognized that there are two kinds of groups in SoT: Some want the game to be more PvE (for example askin for PvE servers) and some are enjoying the PvP aspect more (more ships per map). So I think there should be added content on both sides:

    PvE
    -hunting whales (there are a lot of articles about this already)
    -more difficult raids
    -maybe another monster (pottwhale?)

    PvP
    I think there should be some kind of multiplayer mode added into the game.
    The PvE players have less trouble with PvP because the PvP players would play the MP, but the great concept of PvEvP remains the same.

    As a person who really doesnt like Battle Royale games too much (why does every game need a BR?), I still have to say that this game has one of the best potentials for it. This game already has the basics of BR which is a big map, loot and a storm.
    The best part is that dying would mean something (no respawn) which makes the feeling of this game even better in my opinion.
    Maybe there are better solutions than a classic BR but something in that direction would be great. Because I think a simple MP, for example 3 galleons vs 3 galleons, would take that great open world feeling away and take too much freedom.

    SoT has the potential to become one of the greatest games ever if long term motivation gets added. It already has such great feeling and mechanics. Seriously, I could play it for years! What are your thoughts?

  • Spent the last week holding in this rant but...
    I spent hours looking for a cru who isn't super fresh, (I don't mind helping teach the game to others but when that's all I've been doing for the last month its nice to complete some voyages and get cash) can't match make to anyone of close level or rep.

    So after slooping for 3 hours I give up, this game is making me sick.
    Riot help,
    You fill the game with lots of things( quest events etc) and yet after starting a quest at forsaken shore my boat respawn at Marauder's arch 4 times (couldn't get further away) finally get some loot and get pushed out of bounds by a Skelly ship and then a griefer is watching and waiting at the Outpost to steal my loot.

    Love your product and all the updates but some rework should be focused on some of the communitys griefing problems

    P.s. bring on the pets and arena! Woop

    Our community is currently looking for laid back, mature individuals who are 20 years of age or older. We are mainly comprised of players from the US who all speak English and tend to play in the evenings but we do accept players from all parts of the globe. We are not looking for players who desire hardcore game play, who are angered easily when they die, or who are looking to boss others around. Instead we value positive, upbeat, team orientated individuals.

    If you are looking for a hardcore group of players this is not the organization for you.

  • Hi all
    This is regarding the crew and alliance system I think it is very flawed
    I think you should be able to sail alongside your fellow pirates from your friends list as I’m sure we all have more than 3 friends that play the game
    And maybe have a lobby within the sea of the Thives world that we can search alliances.
    Please let me know your thoughts
    Many thanks sinnicksta.

  • Ahoy Mates!
    I just received a special seasonal Email from sea of thieves!
    (I'm sure many more people have received one as well)

    I read through it and at the end of the long Email I saw this:
    Fire Works

    Fireworks Confirmed!

  • Was having a discussion on reddit and this idea came to me.
    New players sometimes have a difficulty learning the ropes in this game. There is no tutorial and guiding like other games for this era. My idea is to have a commendation under the Athena's rep commendations for Pirate Legends.

    The commendation would be for the Pirate Legends to do 1 / 5 / 10 / 25 / 50 voyages with players that are below level 10 for any of the companies. I think this would..

    1. Vastly improve the quality of players in the game.
    2. Possibly lead to more players staying with the game
    3. Give Pirate Legends something challenging to do that is none traditional and somewhat "unpirate" like... ironically.
    4. Build community

    Possibly lock a set of helpful Pirate Legend sails behind this commendation as well.

    Comments/Concerns/Additions/Subtractions welcome

  • Ahoy Mates!
    The older sea dogs among you probably remember when Rare changed the Barrel System from a single button press system to a menu system.
    Example Picture
    Picture is historically accurate

    The change was made for the Cursed Crews Bilge Rat Adventure some 3 months ago in September.

    The Cursed Crews Bilge Rat Adventure added a slew of new features, the most notable of which were the following:

    • Cursed Cannonballs
    • Reaper's Mark Flag
    • Inventory Quick Menu
    • Barrel 2.0

    The final addition (Barrel 2.0) caused quite the little stir indeed...
    Many players were very much disgruntled by the sudden/drastic change & had little difficulty in expressing their opinions on the matter.

    They brought up many valid points against the new Barrel UI, saying it was slow, clunky and destroyed the perfectly good old system.
    Some said the change ruined the game for them and they left.
    Others defended the new system, arguing that the system will allow Rare to add more items to the game in the future.

    The community's uproar at the Barrel 2.0 controversy escalated so high in fact that it prompted Rare to send out Design Director Mike Chapman to address the community's concerns.

    He explained to the community in his Thread that the changes were for the Game's future & that they intend to add more Food/Ammo types to find in Barrels some time down the road.

    He also promised improvements to Barrel 2.0 such as Take/Store All, and an empty tag on Barrels with no resources in them.
    These changes he promised were added to Barrel 2.0 and the system is objectively less clunky than the way it was on launch.

    His thread seemed to address some of the Community’s wows and things settled down bit.

    -End of History lesson


    And here we are in modern times long, after the changes were implemented.

    So here's my question:

    Do you still dislike Barrel 2.0 or do you like it now?

    My thoughts on the matter:
    I feel it's come along way from where it started thanks to all the improvements, and it has such potential for growth.
    Aslo I've gotten used to Barrel 2.0, so I don't miss the old system as much now.

  • Ahoy Mates!
    I'd like to get the community's opinions of Duke's prices on his time limited Flags.
    Right now he charges 40 Doubloons for a Flag.


    So, do you think this is a fair price?
    Or do you think the price is too much for the item's worth?

    Let me know your opinions mates!

  • Ahoy Mates!
    I'd like to know if the community approves or disapproves of the Cannon, Capstan and Helm prices.
    Are they too expensive or are they a fair price the way they are now?
    Let me know!

  • Ahoy Mates!
    If ya missed last week's eventful stream, (or don't have the time to watch it in it's entirety) Rare has ya covered!
    With the Weekly Stream Highlights: Spoilt for Choice!

    Definitely worth a watch!

  • I'm quite tired of seeing posts on the feedback section about players who have been betrayed or lost loot to PvPers asking for a way to counteract this or a way to report these players.

    Pirating is not against the rules and the alliance system was designed to work this way in which betrayals are always an option.

    Unfortunately these posts gain quite a lot of traction from other people who don't fully understand this and people informing OP that this is part of the game even if 20 other people have already said so.

    A sticky post at the top informing players that this is not the place to complain about loosing loot would deter this a lot and inform players that the alliance system works as intended

  • Please add a right-click / left trigger function for the spyglass which lets you hold it the other way around, so that everything seems further away than it actually is... xD This doesn't add anything really useful, but who doesn't like funny features?

  • Being a newer player to Sea of Thieves, I, like many others, often have questions that come to mind while playing, which of course, leads me to these forums.
    With that in mind, I just wanted to take a moment to express my personal thanks and gratitude to the many players who have taken the time to answer new player questions, and even offer gameplay tips.
    Like any other forum, there are plenty of 'Get Gud' responses to be found, but by-and-large, the responses I've seen have been more along the lines of 'Don't give up. I've been there too.' or 'Add me and I'll help you figure this out.' or 'Here's how I do that...'

    Seriously guys, from the bottom of my heart as a player and a human being, thank you ALL for the positive reinforcement, and tips and tricks; it's been a wonderful thing to see, especially in this day and age of gaming.

    We don't all have to agree on where we'd like to see this game go in its evolution, but it's nice to see so many willing to help others out.

    Thank you, again.
