    @balbasuar Ahoy matey!

    The patch isn't out yet... the game will be down for maintenance tomorrow 10am - 2pm BST at which point a patch will be issued.

    This patch makes me all kinds of happy (for myself as a pirate in SoT and for the folks at Rare)!

    I think this is such an excellent follow-up to THD.

    I can't remember what I was going to say, immediately after reading the notes, because I foolishly decided to read all of the other replies before posting... but... Yayyyy (for the game and for Rare)!

    Just checking in to see if the real problem in the game has been addressed (Crossplay) and the answer is NO! I guess thank for another couple hours of game play.

    This Flag thing is blown out of proportion IMO. Everyone is asking for more content, right? They have to raise money for it somewhere. If the only way they can sell more copies is to cater to special interest groups then I think we're going to see a lot more. Ye be warned! The SoT marketing is looking for its next sucker!

    @thekitchner Some people, including myself, do not like this because it is introducing politics into a fantasy game. I get bombarded by political BS all day long, I don't want to deal with it when I escape into a game.

    This pretty much sums up my thoughts.

    I'm not begrudging anyone's lifestyle. But, in explicitly connecting this flag to pride month, Rare introduced a political slant to their game.

    Is it expecting too much for Rare to follow their own rules and keep politics out?

    I don't see anything in the patch notes about awarding the delayed gold and reputation from June 10th. The twitter account said it would be "later this week". Has there been any update on this?

    @khaleesibot as long as Creed allows those to request and get implemented flags that denominate them as well.

    As was mentioned in the large thread, a white flag with the fish symbol on it, a Muslim flag for those of that creed and so forth.

    This is a touchy subject and NOT including others can lead to a huge PR backlash if not handled correctly.

    Rare also needs to state how they will handle any abuse those flying this Rainbow flag receive. That was my biggest worry about this and I really don’t mind the flag, it’s the actions of others towards this that worries me.

    Rubbish. Celebrating diversity is not a religion. It’s just being a decent human being. There will be no “PR” backlash. As for players being abusive in the game...have you actually played the game? LOL. The kind of people who would act abusive towards other players over a flag don’t need a reason. Most people attack on sight anyway, so I don’t see the difference.

    I think this is a brilliant, bold, positive decision by Rare. They’ve earned even more of my respect and loyalty, and I believe you’ll find many others agree with me.

    +1 on that... also @CptBartRoberts The flag does not support and religion, nationality or a political statement. As mentioned before, celebrating diversity is not a religion.

    Also: "Where is my update!?" XD

    I'm curious about how the new currency will work. Why not just unlock access with participation in events and buy rewards with gold? I'd like to hear or read the reasoning sometime.

    It's a shame the first weekly event has been delayed two days in a row. It calls the "weekly" aspect into doubt. Does this set back the next event?

    It will be nice to plunder shipwrecks without feeding the sharks!

    The event won't be complete until I see a screenshot of a throned pirate surrounded by loot.

    I can't wait to fly the rainbow just to see if it gets me "flagged" for pvp. I'm straight (but very much an ally), but I still want to sail with a fleet and call ourselves "The Gay Agenda"

    I feel this was an addition that was more in line with what Rare represents as a company rather than "bowing to SJWs" as some seem to think. The released an SoT shirt in the shop to celebrate pride after all and it wasn't at the bequest of the players. They did that on their own.

    I do hope for a wide variety of flags in game. But maybe more abstract designs or just make options fully customizable.

    Either way, great job on the patch just PLEASE fix the double venom glitch!

    Just checking in to see if the real problem in the game has been addressed (Crossplay) and the answer is NO! I guess thank for another couple hours of game play.

    I will agree that the Flag issue is way out of proportion, but I can also say the exact same thing about CrossPlay. You know it seems that Console players outnumber PC players almost 5 to 1. That means that maybe, just maybe, 1 potentially full ship of players on your server is a PC player. In all reality, you probably will only run into a PC player once every handful of games or higher if you server hop to only do skull forts.

    There are so many other things in this game that should be addressed that Crossplay is nearing the bottom of the list. If the Flag Situation brought you any messaging it is that All Players are equal, that includes PC and Console Players. With that said, there should not be any exclusion under that rule and that flag addition. I think that Rare made a statement that no one will be excluded so I would think that the same statement applies to Crossplay.

    It looks as if the Bilge rats are going to be thier own faction, and will be around for good from now on, think the whole doubloons thing is going to be a consistant thing used throughout future weekly events, the fact that they can be either cashed in for gold or "a word in the ear" of a chosen faction to increase XP is good news, if playing some sort of side game within the game (Bilge Rat Quest) and being able to increase your XP will help elleviate the feeling that everything is a "grind" to get to pirate legend.

    Would of been good to have seen that you could also use them towards upgrading athena levels for pirate legends too though.

    @nightmare247365 No offence, but I am in a "crew" (discord server) that consists of around 50-50 PC and console players. Either way @honusdan , I am not sure what the Crossplay problem is even supposed to be. The game is cross platform, some people like console, others prefere PC. You can even use controlers on PC so players complaining, that the other system is more or less powerful and that is why you stick to your system or can't use tho other is nonsense.

    So basically, I totally agree, Crossplay is not really an issue at all in my oppinion.

    @thekitchner I have edited your post. Please refrain from using derogatory language against a specific group of people. Your point stands on its own even with the edit.

    Thank you!

    Why is there so much censorship today? I seen a religious thread shut down for talking about it, but i thought the new flag means everyone is excepted? So we have a flag that includes excepting everyones religion, but we cant talk about religion or other flags that express it? I am confused

    Thanks for all the amazing updates! Really looking forward to the two expansions and can't wait to work on the Bilge rat progression!

    I'm so confused?! I logged in and can't find any of these things! Has it not started yet or am I missing something? I read the post three times!

    Muslims and POC are persecuted far more where I am from. I want to protect them and represent them in SoT.

    Cool, and if there was a flag for religious tolerance I'd support that being in the game too.

    I’m sure you would. Which is why being inclusive and adding religious flags separately would be a great idea and a step forward.

    Rainbow flag needs to be removed. Your community is separated enough by Xbox players vs. PC players, PVP players to PVE players. All this new flag will do is anger people one way or the other.

    I'm so grateful to the individuals at Rare for opening lines of communication and giving players what we have been asking for. I truly believe that you are creating the one of the most unique gaming experience in the history of video games.

    This, coupled with gloriously stunning graphics, and an uniquely dynamic and creative gameplay dependent on a unifying international multiplayer experience without doubt places Sea of Thieves as one of my favorite video games of all time.

    Thank you to all of the developers, social media teams, research and development teams, executives, and everyone else at Rare for such an incredible amount of dedication to this game and continuing to release free weekly content and quality of life updates (mainly rowboats, OMG thank you thank you thank you, I literally cannot wait).

    Man, really wish every gaming website on the planet wasn't reporting that this was out already. You guys should really state clearly what day this is dropping.
