• So I that this thought in mind and told a friend (we are both insiders) about it and he thinks it’s a good idea.

    So when becoming an Insider for SOT, you are obliged to make a new pirate. I was shook at first, but realized it was different form the actual game. So I choose my pirate (BTW I loved the new pirate for the Insider Program). So then this came to mind.

    For those who are insiders, can we have the option to switch between our pirates in the actual game & our pirates in the Insider in the actual game of SOT.

    Confused? Let me example more.

    See, I thought about that since we cannot make changes to our original pirates from the actual game of SOT, for those who are insiders and have to make a new one, can have the option [Under “Pirate Settings”] to change our pirate (use the insider pirate we created to use in the actual game as a selection) WHILE STILL KEEPING the same progress we accumulate when we played since day one on the actual game. I just thought about it and wanted to see how everyone else think about it.

  • I would like to suggest a new option to invite friends to a serve, not to sail with you but as another crew on the waters. To be able to show off your skills AGAINST your friends and hunt them down!!

  • PAX AUS – 2019 – Melbourne

    Ahoy there fellow Aussie pirates & those who are traveling from afar. PAX Australia is almost upon us so If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet, you’d better get on it!

    Last year @stacky-a & I had a blast bumping into fellow pirates and sharing our tales from the seas. Once again we’ll be heading over from the west coast so if you see us come over and say hi. I’ll be posting our whereabouts on my twitter page to help you scallywags hunt me down. You never know, I may have some loot worth plundering.

    Those looking to bellow out some sea shanties, head over to the Wombat Theatre at 9:30pm on Saturday and join in on some high seas hijinks.

  • I know about the events, just want to know whether all of them will come back as they were, with the cosmetics. I know that the pre-order bonus isn't coming back for sure, but I would like to collect everything and do all these special event voyages.

  • Disclaimer: Yes, I do understand that in order to obtain Ancient Coins to get animals and the cosmetics via clothing for animals, we either have to do one of the two: Micro-transaction or find this VERY RARE skeleton and shooting it to gain some coins.

    However, there should at least be some type of daunting quest that we can do to obtain the coins, and each time the quest is done, we get at least 50-100 of the coins, but it going to cost you...ummmm...50K Gold to the Pirate Emporium Guy.

    ANOTHER IDEA CAME INTO MY HEAD WHILE WRITING THIS AS WELL. So here me out on this one too.

    So I am thinking, since we have the Repear's Chest & the beacons to know where the chest are located have have this ominous red glow in the sky. How about there is one or two that glow green and that these are crates of Ancient Coins, carrying up to 200 coins when turned in to the guy at the Emporium at the Outpost. But it is not easy (of course), the icon will be shown on the map (Just like the Repear's Chest) and people will come and try to take it from you. But they spawn in not so much as do the Repear's Chest.

    What do you think about this suggestion you pirates out in the high seas?

  • Ahoy thar ye skeevy skallywags!

  • just a small idea that I had for the next festival of the damned event (rare said that they want to add more flame colors for the second one)

    But my idea that I had would be to add in floating buoy's in the ocean that can be harpooned onto and even dragged using the harpoon, and that we would need to light them with the new flame colors

    Was just a small idea that I had

  • A request/feedback for skeleton forts. Forts are much more worth the value than they were before with the addition of the merchant items. But with how often they spawn and the loot you get (20k-40k average) they're not the raid they were intended to be. I remember the early days where you had 3 hour fights for a fort between half the server to walk away with 15k because that much gold was nuts! I think increasing the loot in the fort (closer to 75k+) and decreasing the rate they spawn might turn that around. It would make clearing a fort much worth while and bring back the incentive to have it be an all out raid like in the old days because it might be awhile before you see the next one.

  • So before anyone accuses me of whining I have just about every item the game has to offer and definitely everything I'm suggesting they bring back into the game for purchase.

    So I think Rare should start reintroducing a number of sets that had pieces that could only have been attained by spending Bilge Rat Doubloons earned during certain adventures. Especially the ones that are part of a set and have items in the stores such as the Bone Crusher, Wailing Barnacle, Forsaken Ashes and Mercenary items. A new player might have hopped in loves the Forsaken Ashes set and then is disappointed to find out they can't get the guns and ship set, or they buy the Bone Crusher items from the clothes shop and find you can't get the Hat, or Jacket/Dress.

    I was thinking that these items especially after a year since they were first and last offered should be placed either in the regular shops, or permanently in Dukes Shop as something players can spend extra Bilge Rat Doubloons on. Maybe make a requirement for buying them the completion of the original event commendations. For example you need to sit on all the Skeleton Thrones to get the Bone Crusher Hat, Jacket, and Dress. Players can get a few months of having the item exclusively from an event especially if it's part of a larger set, but should ultimately be reintroduced so other players can get them and complete certain cosmetic sets.

    To all the people moaning about how the items need to remain exclusive because they want to feel special cause they have something other people don't all I have to say is that it's a petty and selfish excuse. The commendations and things required to obtain most of these items are still available to unlock. Nobody would be working harder to get these items and arguably even harder since many of the earlier ones had no unlock conditions and you could get if you had the spare doubloons from the last event to get them.

    Now obviously certain items shouldn't return and should remain exclusive to show you participated in certain events, or were in the game for a while. The Founder Sails you got from playing the Alpha, The Hungering One Figurehead from The Hungering Deep and the Three Region Sails from Cursed Sails should remain exclusive because they specifically showed you participated in certain events. The Festival of the Damned Face Paints, Sails and Lantern can remain exclusive, but I think they could be offered around every Halloween for a limited time. Actually one thing that could and should remain Exclusive from each event is a title showing you participated in the original event.

  • All of you pirates here gotta admit that the seas have been really merciful lately when it comes to the PvE threats... Krakens can be escaped from, Megalodons can be ignore and players are no longer so driven by bloodlust for stolen loot after the implementation of Tall Tales. I know that many of you can say: Yeah, but skeletons ships are still there... But thats the problem, all of skeleton ships went passive after the last update and can be easily outplayed, defeated by prepared players and those who are not just ignore them. Most of the players know that once the ship is aggresive, and takes its distance, its much more difficult to be dealt with than just jumping on the afking skeletons ship with the Gunpowder Barrel. And thats why I think that the aggresive, event like skeleton ships should return to the Sea of Thieves, now with addition of skeleton sloop to the open world, not just Skeleton Crews event, to make the Seas less predictable than it is now.

  • This could be part of the tutorial as well.

    My idea is to have people complete commendations that require to do basic ship work such as repairs, sail raising/angling, cannon firing/loading, anchor raising/dropping. I think it would be very helpful for new pirates hoping into the game. I constantly keep hearing newer players complaining that they have no idea what they're doing and although I was able to help a few I was wondering if they're were any potential players that got turned off by the lack of knowledge on what to do.

    Simple idea that could help a lot of new or unskilled players.

    Thoughts?

  • Out of all 5 known Skeletons lords, only Captain Flameheart remains "alive". That's why I think we are definitely going to see him in the new Tall Tales as one of the antagonist or even the final boss. There have been signs about his arrival my fellow pirates. Since the Shores of Gold commendations has offered a Gold Hoarder's curse I think it would be cool to have a skeleton one as well, where your body would have some skeleton parts instead of flesh.

    Let me know what do you guys think about this and give me your feedback If you would be cool with another curse as the main grind of new Tall Tale, or If you would like to see something new.

  • Ahoy me Hearties!

    I have already completed black powder stashes, it was a blast! Tho I have a few questions that I didn't clearly understand from the Dev update announcing this event, regarding mermaid Gems.

    Currently, you get the Gems everywhere, shipwrecks, shore lines, Forts, Megalodon and so on. Is it staying like this after the event is over? or will it go back to previous state, which is mermaid statues?

    Thank you

  • Hello there!
    I just signed up for the Twitch Rivals Twitch drops and the Terms and Condidtions state:
    "In-game cosmetics require Sea of Thieves game and Xbox Live Gold membership (both sold separately). "
    As I am playing on PC, do not own an XBOX and I do not have an Xbox Live Gold membership - Does this mean that players without will not get any drops from this event?

  • 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.

  • I loved the double gold event a while ago and i feel more events are needed to add variety.

    Double gold weekends would be good at the end of every month to try and get a few players back and create a buzz around the seas but my main point is environmental changes.

    There are so many options you could go with that would last a weekend or so:

    • 'High Winds' - The strengths of winds are increased meaning higher sailing speeds however much wilder waves, this could also be inverted to 'low winds' where winds are weaker however the seas are much calmer.

    • 'Volcano Drought' - Volcanoes stop erupting or alternatively are much less frequent.

    • 'Chummed waters' - the spawn frequency of sharks and megs are increased (could help people get the shrouded ghost)

    • 'woeful weather' - the size of the storm is much larger and travels much faster, same applies to the fog. This could be inverted to a 'fruitful forecast' where there are no storms or fog.

    Those are just a few ideas but there are so many possibilities and i feel they would add so much more variety to the game and help pull players back in. Thoughts?


  • Feedback + Suggestions

    I know we all hear about the Man of War. There are valid ideas for and against it. What if it was introduced as another raid? One thing the sea is missing is government. Soldiers vs pirates a long standing tradition. We have skeleton forts and ship waves. What if a Man of War would sail around with the loot of a fort, and the damage of 2-3 skeleton Galleons? Maybe even have the soldiers able to bail to make it more of a challenge. Any ideas to make this even better drop here!


  • Feedback + Suggestions

    Currently in SoT we have three environmental “events” if you will that can hinder your sailing. The storm, the fog, and the volcanoes. What if the next one was a maelstrom?! Sailing around and suddenly the sky above you darkened similar to the sea darkening with the Kraken. And with this the sea around you starts to spin and then opens. Forcing you to work to sail out of it. Maybe even pulling up loot from the depths so if you stay in it you can work with your crew to get rewards while risking your ship getting pulled to a watery grave!

  • Ahoy! I’m a new player and I’m kind of confused about some of the events. I’ve only been playing about a week now. Is it possible to still earn commendations from past events? As an example, am I still able to go to the ferry of the damned and get different colors for my lantern? Also, is there a timeframe to when new events are coming out because I’d like to spend doubloons on items.

    Thanks!

  • My first mate and I had many adventures this day in the Sea of Thieves, but none as eventful compared to what had happened to us out in the Ancient Isle!

    We had finished part of a fine voyage filled with decent treasure, and were heading off to another island to complete it. Then, the great Shadowmaw appeared from the waters, and we had to steer out of the impending storm in order to take him on!

    It was an intense and lengthy battle, and the old Jackdaw managed to pull through and she kept afloat with the help of my trusty first mate!

    We came out victorious and the Shadowmaw sunk to the very depths of Davy Jones locker. We were collecting our spoils, and just as we gathered the last of it, we heard deep and monsterly growls, as the waters turned murky and dark.

    The great and mighty Kraken had decided to avenge its fallen friend and attacked our sloop!! During this long and draining battle, not once but TWICE I had been captured by the giant sea creature, and the old Jackdaw was taking such a severe beating.

    After several intense moments we finally came out as the victors, but our prize was rather minuscule. But we did not complain as we came out as victors in TWO great battles with the most well known monsters of the deep!

  • My best friend and I, just a few hours ago, had managed to do a Skeleton Fort on our own (after taking 15 minutes to find a decent spot to park, only to find out it wasn’t a decent spot to park, until we crashed into the island and had the ship parked in a decent spot). We tore through the waves rather swiftly (thanks to the help of kegs and the skeletons following us out to shore and giving us a fighting chance instead of dying every 2 minutes cuz of 7 different guns), and after over a half hour we got our reward of over 20,000 coins worth of loot (we took inventory and actually counted).

    What struck me as odd was how QUICKLY we were able to complete that skeleton fort!!

    I remember AGES AGO, how me and two friend went to aid in a skeleton fort raid with a galleon crew (four others) and somehow it took us all OVER AN HOUR to complete (and thankfully the crew was friendly and we were able to split the reward as 50/50 as possible).

    I’m not sure what sort of tweaking went on with skeleton forts but whatever was done, I’m actually impressed with how fun they’ve turned out to be now!!

    The only issue encountered was despawning skeletons. We both died around the same time and arrived to an empty fort, and we literally had to suicide bomb ourselves to get the remaining skeletons to spawn back in once we returned from the Ferry of the Damned.

    I’m not sure if this bug has been fixed or tweaked before or not, but it genuinely made us both panic for a solid few minutes.

    We also encountered an issue where a final skeleton had somehow spawned IN THE VAULT and we had to kill it using kegs ( if we didn’t have kegs we would’ve been screwed).

    Other than that, I’d say the skeleton forts are pretty awesome!!
