I completely agree. Someone from Rare should be monitoring the situation for each player and call them on their mobile phone to give them a heads up that they are under attack! Completely disgraceful that this wasn't included from day one!

RE: can you give me a notafication when my ship is attacked
RE: Game won't load
I have previously encountered what you are describing, unfortunately I don't have a clear fix for you. The situation I first encountered it in was when joining a crew fighting the skeleton fleets, it effectively had me in the game but I was not visible, but could hear everything going on. It eventually loaded me into the game but it wasn't until after the skeleton fleet had been defeated - good news was that I earned one of the achievements while stuck in the black loading screen.
I have encountered once or twice otherwise but haven't had a solution, other than once it seemed to fix when I swapped internet connections (from ADSL to 4G, or vice versa). It seems to only occur when joining a crew, and when something is going on in the game.
All I can recommend is: restarting computer, restarting router, and if both of those don'e work just let it sit there and see if it eventually connects. Sorry I don't have a proper solution.
RE: Feedback for Rares Update - 1.4.3
@shinten-rai Sure but what pirate legend stuff? Athena voyages, they are basically just more of what you have done to get to PL, sure the skeletons are harder, but seriously they are not a challenge. There is absolutely nothing to do as a PL, I don't want to sound ungrateful but I really wish they were focusing on additional content especially for the end game.
RE: Skelly ships, skull forts, and pirates are over powered
Poor Megan, hope things improve for you. Please don't leave the game! Also please encourage your cousin to come back as I am yet to meet her and have been looking everywhere for her.
RE: What's up with the prices? Is there an economic crisis in the Sea of Thieves?
No it's because there are so many new players, the increased supply of chests has lowered demand (and hence the prices).
RE: How much would you pay for a pet?
It really depends on what they look like and what they can do. Theoretically any of those prices would be acceptable if the pet was good enough, especially if I can get either (or both) a black and white cat or a ginger cat (so that my cat family is represented in my game).
RE: Alienating PC Players.
@d4m0r3d You are remarkably naive on human behaviour if you think that making something optional, something that many of the Xbox players will believe will make their games easier, means that only a limited number of players will select it. They have nothing to lose (other than the ability to play with PC friends) in selecting to not play with PC players, i.e. the majority of Xbox players are incentivised to enable the option.
Personally I think that Rare may in enabling this option have effectively killed the game (at least in my region) for PC players. Now I will stick around to see if that is how things actually play out, but I am deeply worried about it. For the last few months, at least for the time of day that I play, there has been an ever decreasing number of ships encountered - this could make that even worse.
I don't want this game to die.
RE: Athena AFKing is rampant and we need a solution.
@new-world-clogs Probably would be best to limit it to a timer rather than to a set number of times, so you can only prompt the questions say every 10 or 15 minutes.
