    @admiral-rrrsole there is no need to copy/paste an entire events calendar here. A link is more than enough to make your point.

    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.

    You're almost correct. Once upon a time there was a 5 to one ratio of XBox to PC players. I might run into a PC player once a week. Sometimes not even. I stopped playing when it was every other ship I came across was PC and yes it is very easy to tell who is PC. I think it's fair to assume the PC playerbase didn't increase that much. That leaves us with the XBox playerbase that has been chased off. Yes, I do understand that a lot left for content, but crossplay is the bigger killer. Players will push through a little monotony as long as they are having fun. It's the flat negative experience which will cause them to delete the game. Forced crossplay is the single biggest problem with the game. SoT will never recover because of it. Anyone that actually cares has already given up and left the game. We spoke with our numbers. Enjoy your PC game! (no pun intended).

    @gloog It is the age of identity politics. Everyone needs something that represents their own self-importance, even in fictional worlds that have no concept of real-world politics. It is society being crushed under its own decadence.

    @oldrusty-gaming It's called virtue signaling. It isn't enough to just be accepting. You need to display it in an overt manner so you will be "accepted." Quite ironic. Never mind the fact that Rare releases this into a game (whose progression system is purely cosmetic) already lacking cosmetic content. Nope, don't need some new looking weapons or clothes. I'm convinced Rare has one dude locked in a basement being forced to code this entire game. His name is Chuck and he needs your help to free him. How else can you explain the ridiculous slow release of cosmetics. Never mind all of that though, we just need that rainbow flag. What a slap in the face that is.

    @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

    Some people believe diversity is code for european genocide.

    Can’t say I see much diversity anywhere else.

    @nightmare247365 lol. youre going to mingle the flag situation in with crossplay? really? all people should 'be equal', but crossplay definetley isnt equal.
    And stating that its near the bottom of the list?
    The last thread ended with an employee or moderator(sorry I forgot which one) saying something along the lines of 'thanks for the input, we are listening to feedback, analysing internal data, and we are taking this topic very seriously'. Or something along those lines anyway. Maybe rare will say something a little more concrete one way or the other to stop this argument?

    Rare, many thanks. Look forward to the new event and the new content coming. Fantastic work as allways. Don't mind the rainbow flag at all. It's simple, those who don't like it just don't sail with it and let people enjoy the game no matter what flag they are using.
    No one is forced to use it and it's about beeing tolerant and respectfull to everyone. So why don't just be happy that we get new content and enjoy playing instead of argueing about a simple flag.

    I consider myself as a treeman minority, sort of druids, "respect my authoritah" I need a treeman's flag or it's absence in game insults me, I'm obsessed to show everyone my tree nature and my special way of breeding!

    And I need some more flags for my friends - catman, frogman and androgynyalien!

    @khaleesibot said in Patch Notes Discussion 1.1.2:

    Rainbow flag - A new flag has been added to all pirates' flag inventory! Article 1 of the Pirate Code states that, "Everyone is welcome on the Sea of Thieves regardless of age, gender, race, sexuality, nationality or creed."

    Why does a rainbow flag need to be justified in this way?
    Lock the post for introducing politics and hot button topics.

    Seriously @khaleesibot edit your post. This is already causing political topics we don't need on the forums.

    You mention players assign meaning to the flags themselves then explicitly assign meaning to the rainbow flag.

    Now we will demand flags for all creeds and causes.

    What would Jesus do? Braclet cosmetic plzzzz

    This is a valid concern. Going by that explanation I ask: Where is my country flag? Where is my cross? Where is my gender symbol? Inclusiveness does not mean that some groups should exclusively be able to represent themself.

    • Bilge Rat Cosmetics – Spend your Bilge Rat Doubloons on exclusive time-limited items too! You have until the 26th of June to purchase the Bone Crusher Hat, Jacket and Dress – priced at 20 Doubloons per item.
    • Bilge Rat Trading – If you’re feeling a thirst for a little extra gold in ye’ pocket or fancy some Reputation in any of the three Trading Companies, the Bilge Rats can also pull a few strings and allow you to trade your Doubloons towards a bit of progress.

    Could we please get confirmation here?
    Will Doubloons carry over to future events? Say I don't like what's up for offer this week, should I hit up "a bit of progress" before this currency expires?
    May I save my Doubloons until future events where I might see something I like or will there be a time limit on spending Doubloons?

    I'm sorry but with time limited content and a series of further content available only to a new introduced currency, there should be a lot of questions answered before they are asked, which is usually after it's too late.

    These latter progression items will be a permanent part of the Bilge Rat shop and aren’t time limited, so make your choice wisely!

    That's a little confusing. To me it says "no rush, no fuss". Take your time, save your Doubloons and wait to see if something better gets introduced at a later date.
    Why choose wisely if they aren't time limited?
    Fair enough, you have until the 26th of June to purchase the Bone Crusher clothes but don't just buy it because it's there. Right? A million other pirates will also be wearing that get-up.

    So, will the future Doubloon exclusive items be displayed for browsing before hand to enable calculated decisions or do we have to wait and see what's new week by week?
    I can see potential for regretful impulse buying.

    I personally play for the social interaction of the friends I have made but many are here purely for the cosmetics. I think it should all be made clear to everyone.
    Thank you.

    On the subject of flags I'm not about to wade in on the rainbow flag but what I would like to see is national flags so we could represent for our homes. I like the idea of pretending I'm a part of her majesties navy waving the union jack aboard HMS Banana hoarder. That said im sure something like this would be way down the priority list so if it never happens thats fair enough.

    @khaleesibot please stop making these timed events force us to team up! I got lucky on the hungering deep but you're making it waaaaaaay more difficult than it should be. I get the hungering deep thing as there is a huge big boss to fight, but for sitting on thrones I would like to just find them with my crew mate and let that be it!

    I'm all for increased teamwork with randoms, but come on!

    @khaleesibot Has a quick keybind for the speaking trumpet finally been added in this update? It's important to have quick access to a communication tool like this in a multiplayer game.
    Also, has text chat via Xbox One Chat Pad finally been added to the Xbox One version yet? @Rare-Employee
