as for me, the Safer Seas update coming in december will be a huge quality of life improvement. I have been avoiding tall tales, shrines and bigger world events so far, because I'm sailing alone most of the time. With Safer Seas, I'm looking forward to finally experiencing all that in a comforting way. I do have a few friends who might join me in Safer Seas crews, but I don't know for sure. This is why I want to ask around here if there are other solo players or duo crews who might want to connect. It's not about commiting to any guild-like coop structures where everybody is angry when someone progresses on his or her own. I am just thinking that it would be cool to have a number of ingame friends regularly doing Safer Seas adventures/PvE world events who can join each other when it's convient.
So if you are interested in something like this as well, feel free to contact me and exchange gamertags! :)
And as to myself: I am German and English speaking based in Central European Time Zone with ~150h playtime.
Good luck to all of you out there in High or Safer Seas!
