RE: The Devil’s Roar is empty, The future is dim
@kondrites let me introduce to a little place you may have heard of but forgotten about, it’s called the Shores of Plenty. It’s a calm environment with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Perfect place and miles away from those pesky geysers.
RE: The Devil’s Roar is empty, The future is dim
@solestone563412 we hunt in the DR 3 - 4 nights a week; we find plenty of spoils between 40 - 70k each run. If your lottery metaphor were true then we are the luckiest Bilge Rats this side of the Red Sea and by default, considering your experience, you are simply unlucky.
Seems as though the DR is actually ok and you are one person who thinks the future is “dim;” I actually rarely visit these forums anymore because most of the topics have some negative valence.
Thus, my crew will still farm DR more content will come and the future will be as bright as the glittering hoard that will be taken from dim wits brave enough to test their mettle.
RE: TIGA: Game of the Year Vote
I'm sorry but I can't vote for something I don't believe in. That's how people like Trump get into office. lol
Nah, people like Trump get elected because of a faulty winner-take-all electoral college and nothing more... With regard to you not voting for SoT; no worries there I get it you may like another game; clearly you put time into SoT to be Athena's 7 so you must have enjoyed it; in terms of something other than SoT that could be game of the year, in an honest sense, what game?
And in terms of "more to offer" I don't think I can go: "he says she says and such;" I mean I'll just have to disagree and say sure there were times that I dabbled in other games - I'm Athena 5+ my crew is somewhere between there and Athena 10, but yeah we keep coming back and Rare keeps giving us more reasons to do so. imo.
TIGA: Game of the Year Vote
Hello all, as I am sure you have already heard, Rare - SoT - has been nominated for several awards this year. The game of the year is one of those nominations. I'm just suggesting that you take the time to click that "yes" button for SoT here:
Whether you love to "hate" the game or simply "hate" how much you love this game; get out there and vote!!
I now return to the seas
RE: [CLOSED] Win Wednesday - Obsidian Eye of Reach and Drum giveaway!
Roll in with my 3-man Brigantine; challenge the existing alliance there as well as the current skeleton crews. Sink opposite Brigantine, sink opposite sloop. Sink skeleton crews. I captain the ship, our scullery maid is in damage control. Our Mercenary boards and kills all opposite scullery maids while our maid and I riddle opponents with canon balls. Rinse wash repeat; reap rewards!!!
RE: [Mega Thread] Alliances
I have been faithfully enjoying this game since closed Alpha. Last night I just finished an Alliances voyage that took a very long few hours. The experience left me sick.
I and a friend started on our brigantine and we joined a galleon to form an Alliance to battle the skeleton ships. Eventually my friend had to log off before we completed a skeleton ships encounter. We fought two complete rounds of skeleton ships and amassed a ton of loot.
As soon as we all unloaded the loot from each ship on to the dock at Plunder Outpost, the other group disbanded the Alliance and killed me. I spent all that time and effort fighting in an Alliance only to come away frustrated, angry and with zero loot!
I was wronged by this toxicity! This is toxic behavior manipulating the Alliance mechanic. Nobody is going to make alliances if they are outnumbered, knowing the other players can simply disband the alliance and kill the outnumbered players to steal all the loot and leave the outnumbered players frustrated.
I am seriously considering abandoning this game forever, as this behavior is not worth me losing sleep. This is a game and no amount of fun is worth losing sleep over. I know many or most players feel the same way. I could not sleep all night last night as due to this issue. I am very sad to say that I seriously considering uninstalling Sea of Thieves.
I even attempted to sail back to the outpost to attempt to communicate with them and all I could get out was "cool guys" and "SCREENSHOTS" before they killed me again and sunk my ship. I have screenshots of the offending players killing me.
I want these players banned, I want you to fix the "Recent players" functionality, I want the total amount of gold I earned on this voyage to compete the skeleton ships voyages, I want all my earned reputation gains and I want you to change the mechanic so that the Alliance cannot be disbanded once loot has been attained!
[Mod Edit - Callouts on the forums are not allowed.]
This behavior is wrong and is ruining the game.
They built the risk v. reward of alliance and betrayal into the current mechanic. The devs even stayed that they are monitoring the amount of feedback regarding successful alliance as well as successful betrayals.
There are those that actually want to ally and want to have fleets and want the alliance system to work.
Others are waiting under the cloak of alliance to stab you in the back.
I’ve actually experienced both. However those that attempted the betrayal where not calculated enough and failed. Our successful betrayal was savage and I admittedly felt bad, for a second or two.
But the seas be the seas I hope you find a trustworthy crew and alliance.
Persistent Lag Spikes
Hello I play Xbox One plugged into my net. I play quite regularly and have not experienced to many issues. Over the past three days, I've had rubber-banding issues where I am glitched off my boat, I'm having persistent lag spikes for the last three nights, it makes the game feel unplayable.
Just some feedback from a player that really enjoys this game.
