@teck7772 the game that made me think of the feature was the multiplayer part of Mass Effect 3. Being able to check on your unlocks etc OUTSIDE of the game was very useful indeed. REALLY hope someone can do something with this idea and make it a reality. :)

RE: Seeking information on Pioneer status
I believe it would also be good to have a status on the xbox insider app. But I will need a mod to confirm that with me.
That would indeed be very useful imo. The insider app needs some love right now.
RE: Pioneer recruitment
It is odd how many threads get opened on a subject within hours/days of others asking/addressing the exact same thing. It's always happened on these forums tbf but if only people would check one page back BEFORE they post, they'd more often than not find the answer to their question.
This is (I think) the 3rd or 4th topic on this subject since I made one 2 days ago, asking for someone in the know to post a link to where we can get information on the current state of the Pioneer status. A moderator promptly made the info available in a reply and a few people added comments thanking them and asking follow-up questions. Since then, so many topics have been started asking pretty much the same thing over and over... is it really now so alien a concept to most people on forums now, that actually looking for an answer to a question BEFORE asking it just doesn't cross their mind?
It occurs to me that if more people did just that (something that was always considered normal forum etiquette in my experience) then we would have a LOT more relevant, informative posts on the first page, rather than lots of smaller threads, with very few responses and missing information due to over saturation of the given topic. It's no wonder so many oft requested features get overlooked by Rare JUST because forum users either didn't use the search function OR even simpler, just click ONE page back on the recent posts to check before they type.
Not an attack on OP, or anyone really, just a plea to fellow members to think before they act in the interest of promoting a BETTER forum for us all. Swift winds and happy sailing all :)
RE: Bug Report: Wind corrents not showing
This bug has sadly been present since before release. Luckily the fix is simple, you just need to visit the Ferry of the Damned and it'll be fixed for when you're back on your ship. In the meantime, as stated above, you can use the flag to determine the direction of the wind.
It would be nice to see the bug fixed once and for all though, so it's hopefully a good thing that it's brought to light again on the forums, although I believe the best thing to do is to report it to the Support team.
RE: Do you think we will ever get a single player mode?
If they were to allow a single-player option, then imo it would have to be one where all achievements are turned off. Everyone else has had to handle the full range of threats to reach the level they're currently at, whether that be the lofty heights of Athena 10, Pirate Legend or just somewhere on the way towards both/either.
With no threat from other players, despite all the dangers now present in the world since Shrouded Spoils helped bring the world to life... there's still very little risk in a single player environment. With no risk, should come no reward. Gold should still be paid out for anything you hand in but all commendations etc should be negated whilst in an offline mode.
I personally don't wish for or need a single player mode, I like the game just as it is, however, I can see how some players with very limited gaming time and a love for the game might want such a thing and I don't see why it should be refused them... as long as it doesn't give them an advantage over the players that play the full mode. Well, that's my two doubloons worth anyhow :)
Possibility of adding Pirate Legend status to your forum profile and being able to access commendations OUTSIDE of the game?
As above really. Would it be possible to have our forum profile recognise our progress within game and display Pirate Legend along with any other titles we might have eg. Pioneer, Insider, Boatswain etc? A small feature but one I'm sure many of us would appreciate seeing.
The other half of the question... could we have access either via our profile or perhaps in a separate web page, or even an app, to our commendation progress without having to fire up the game. I've had several discussions with others recently, whether that be chatting to friends or discussing the game on Twitch etc where commendation progress was brought up and we had to solely go by memory to recall what we'd completed etc. I know I speak for more than just myself when I say that such a feature would be very much appreciated also.
Many thanks and happy sailing :)
RE: Loading supplies on a boat.
There are better solutions than this in several forum posts.
Save supplies? Buy supplies? No. That's definitively will unbalance the game.
Just imagine. You just sink an enemy that attacked you while you made a fort, they were A10, they bought everything from the game, they have money to spare. You're just a novice learning how to play. Less than 10 minutes later they come back, 1000 cannon balls, 1000 bananas and 1000 wood planks. They can buy, they have money to spare. What would your chances be? This game is fair for both an A10 and a newbie. This way it would not be.
I have to say that I completely agree with TargasBR here. Once you reach Legend and Athena 10 and you've bought all the cosmetics, there's nothing left to spend your gold on. Making it so that players could buy supplies puts all PL's at a huge advantage and makes the whole concept of each ship having limited supplies null and void.
Is stocking up a fresh ship each time you load up SoT annoying? Maybe a little, more repetitive than annoying imo but I get that some hate it. Is it fun? Hell no! However, like it or not, the key to victory is often to have the best supplied ship for any situation. Inventory management is a part of this game, whether it's popular or not. It's just something that you get accustomed to and deal with. Sure it could be improved upon and ideas for that are always welcome, I just don't feel that allowing players to spend gold to acquire resources would be healthy for the game overall.
Happy sailing :)
Seeking information on Pioneer status
Firstly, I'd like to state that I'm not creating a thread to beg for Pioneer status, I'm fully aware that such a thing is in all probability, the LEAST likely way to be added (or re-added for those that no longer have it) to it.
With Arena just around the corner and all the nods in the weekly dev stream that Joe and the team have made towards the programme being used to test the build/s before the general release, I just thought it'd be useful/informative if we had some up-to-date info on what I'd imagine, is a much sought after status.
From memory, it was a mix of player level/experience and forum activity, although I don't think this was ever officially confirmed. Any clarification on this and/or news about whether there might be another wave of recruitment being done ahead of the Arena release would be very much appreciated.
Also, apologies if the answers to all this is readily apparent somewhere really obvious already. I did take a gander and couldn't see anything recent anywhere.
