Half the pirates that wear that flag are xbox sissies who are room temperature IQ, the other half want to be funny and make fun of gays, but lately i've been equipping that flag whenever i'm looking for a fight. Equipping the fundraiser sails helps too, especially on a sloop looking for galleons to sink.

You can also hear squeakers if they're on your crew, but if you spawn with one you should always immediately DC anyways. Not before setting the ship on fire and raising anchor and sailing away.

Tonight's time with randies sucked, I decided to take a break from the game for a while and uninstalled. I'm a newfag and don't know how to greentext so I'll just type my two stories:

1. Log into a Brig, get in a crew getting ready for a vault. Help them find the key and map fragments and we set sail for the island the vault is on. I notice a mermaid that clearly isn't ours nearby and warn them. See a ton of treasure on the beach. They spot two ships coming our way and the captain says "escape", so we do. He then goes "turn around and attack, it's only a sloop lol". You know how the rest of this story goes... Fast forward to us getting absolutely demolished, losing all of the treasure we grabbed along the way, and our captain disconnects.

2. Log in to another Brig, get in a crew with a semi-squeaker and a guy that leaves, I guess he saw the writing on the wall. We actually find a really helpful Sloop shortly after and form an alliance, we're going to do Merchant Guild stuff while they do Soul stuff, but we'll keep by each other. Shortly after leaving the outpost we get jumped by a Mega. We kill it just in time to have TWO skelly ships pop out right next to us. To add to the frustration, a Asian guy of some sort (sounded like Vietnamese but unsure due to the following) joins our crew LOUDLY slurping what has to be the biggest fucking bowl of soup, chattering loudly, and there's a fan blowing into his mic. I immediately mute him and focus on the skelly ships. The squeaker fails multiple times to board the ships while Asian Persuasion poorly shoots at them with our cannons. Eventually I get tired of repairing and jump in the water to catch the ships. Of course they activate nitrous and jet away from me. Just as I'm nearing one finally, our squeaker captain boards, gets REK'D, and immediately disconnects. Slurpy McGee firces us to run out of cannonballs, and our alliance guys are too busy fighting their skelly ship to help me, so I say fuck it, dip out, and uninstall
>>
>>326090
Meet some super pros with heaps of loot on their sloop. They are so strong that they dodge all our blunderbuss shots and wreck us effortlessly. They capture and drive our sloop now, leaving theirs at shore of some random island. Sneak out and swim to their ship. Drive it and start dump their loot into the sea. Manage to get to outpost and start selling, all this while they are bussy goofing around on our ship, showing their dog, playing songs and spawnkilling my mate that stayed. Sell some stuff and they finally teleport back on their ship, they kill me and turn back to grab "breadcrumbs" i dumped into sea. Meanwhile my mate already grabs some of thier loot from the sea and we manage to sell it too.
>>

Nothing lgbt in this game, only optional rainbow flag. Nature of this game is antilgbt due to free pvp and no police to stop "the bad guys" and protect the weak. Kill anyone anywhere and nobody will try to stop you.

There's a few way to play this game, but as it is with most games you just need to be patient with a lot of them.
>I'm playing solo sloop, what's the best way to play?
Start off with Gold Hoarders or Order of Souls. You'll want to get some practice in with facing skeletons and solving riddles. If you are attacked by a ship, sail into the edge of the world so your ship and its contents (treasure included) will despawn instead of being taken by more experienced pirates. Don't fight, you will lose.
>I'm playing with a group, what ship do you recommend?
I recommend for newer players who have a group of friends to start out in a brigantine instead of a galleon, since galleons are harder to control and leave no room for mistakes. Once you get more experience do I suggest a galleon, you'll need to start doing callouts for steering the ship, angling sails, etc.
>I want to play with randoms, what do you suggest?
Getting on microphone and choosing the brigantine or sloop. noobs flock to the galleon because they think more players = stronger ship but that just means you'll have to focus on repairing all the holes more often on both decks.
>What about the floating skulls in the sky? What do I do about those?
World events are something new players tend to magnetize towards or completely avoid. Skeleton forts are good, sure, but you'd need a decent crew for that or else you're gonna get swamped by a flock of boneheads with hooks and flintlocks. Plus, anyone can see a skull fort at any time and snag the loot when you finish up. Instead, look for sunken ships, mermaid statues, skeleton ships, megalodons and krakens instead since those are easier to manage.
>>
>>326377
The purpose of solo sloops is to be easy cannon fodder for the people who actually play the game.

>are the stronger characters stronger because of experience and general skill or because of levels?
General skill, not level. There's no stats, just flat damage numbers.
>so im gathering that steering ships is supposed to be like steering an actual ship?
yeah, basically the ship you currently possess is the amount of times it takes to rotate the wheel for a full turn.
sloop = 1 rotation
brig = 2 rotations
galleon = 3 rotations
and that's also why having 2 people on top deck at all times is a generally good way of navigating a ship, you can usually just have one person on wheel / back sail while the other deckhand is on the other 2 sails and harpoons in case you need a harpoon turn. while it's not a bad strategy to have at least one boarder, you can also snipe people on-deck with cannonballs if you're close enough. the strongest galleon crews tend to coordinate the best.

>random players don't know what an alliance is

>>327658
so if the ship handling is supposed to b realistic, does this mean smaller ships can move faster and obv they are easier to handle

so if you are soloing and you are a strong player. how will you fare?
>>
>>327729
>so if the ship handling is supposed to b realistic, does this mean smaller ships can move faster and obv they are easier to handle
Ships move faster than each other depending on wind
>Sloop - fastest against the wind
>Brig - fastest perpendicular to the wind
>Galleon - fastest with the wind
Sloops are the easiest to handle and can more quickly turn, but they are outgunned and more crippled if the mast goes down.
> so if you are soloing and you are a strong player. how will you fare?
A competent solo slooper can be deadly, especially if they can maneuver really well. You have to constantly monitor every status component of your ship though. Steering, sails, cannons, repairs, and bailing all have to be managed

I was playing solo last night and even though I didn't sink the brig of 3 people I managed to chase them away from an ashen winds event and solo the entire thing myself uncontested. I beat the ever living fuck out of them and chased them a good while. They even jumped ship to 2v1 me, but I beat both of them. Just couldn't catch up to them to take advantage of them being down two.

I love when that shit happens right after you have your ship loaded up with loot from the super awesome good treasure fort you had to fight off several other crews for, right when you finished, so you have very little cannonballs or boards left over and you get sunked after one of your crew mates decides it's not worth playing anymore and ragequit uninstalls.

sloop vs brig is fun because if you're like me on a sloop you can easily out-maneuver the brig by simply going to an island with a bunch of rocks (shipwreck bay being my kino choice of pass) and doing a bunch of well-placed harpoon turns in order to lead the brig around the island before getting a bunch of good shots on them with curse balls and chain shots

So, this is the path i take on shipwreck bay when i'm chased by a brig, it's why i solo sloop in the ancient isles every time. Takes practice to figure out but once you get it you can get the timing and angle down perfectly at full speed with tailwind as well.
>Step 1: come from the opening at the south west rocks, half turn towards north and get on the right harpoon immediately, pull until your side almost knocks the arch then release, the wheel will keep you steady before you knock into it
>Step 2: look where the brig is turning, choose a side to turn out depending on how you want to approach (if they follow you in i guarantee they're crashing into the arch or one of the smaller rocks) then harpoon turn and fix the wheel when you detach.

Anyone had a crew that was excellent at everything and active then just all of a sudden stop at a stand-still right when some other ship attacks you, so you're stuck doing everything until you get boarded and killed over and over while you watch your dead-eyes crew stand in the corner on the ship of the damned?

Ship vs ship training can be done in the Arena. It's all that with only a single chest grab but you can get way more points just with cannonballs. Unfortunately, afaIk it's just sloops and galleons.

>>335005
I'm gonna assume 3 man galleon would just be a bad time so we should save arena for when one of us wont be playing and sloop it?

What >>335005 is saying is solid advice.
The most important thing for ship combat is call outs and knowing who is doing what. Here's a few tips:
>when you have holes, bailing > patching
>canon shots curve depending on the helm position
>when sailing against the wind, flat sails are better than angled sails
>avoid using the anchor as much as possible
>there is a split second pause when an enemy boards a ship that they cannot defend against an aimed blunderbuss shot at point blank
>use your sound, SoT uses tons of audio queues
>always stay mobile

Some ship tips--
Sloop:
>easy to disable, hard to sink
>fastest ship against the wind
Brigantine:
>fastest ship with wind
>easy to control
>only 1 lower deck, but easy to bail
Galleon:
>most firepower
>crew needs to be on point
>sails and anchor are slow to move
>can take a pounding, but a good crew will shoot bottom deck holes rather than middle

I have close to 1,000 hours in this game if the Xbox PC app is accurate, I'd be happy to give any tips or show a new crew the ropes.

make sure your water is bailed to a manageable level before attempting to patch the holes

That makes sense. But "bailing" can be understood as jump off your ship, which is quite silly.
>>
>>335262
Not really, its mostly context in this situation. You bail water with a bucket, and you would abandon a ship if you were to be "bailing" in that sense.
Truthfully there's never a time you abandon your ship

>Ship vs ship training can be done in the Arena
it's just turned into boarding and spawn camping like adventure mode. I really wish they'd make the pvp less clunky, because it just turns into a shit fest me and other pirates looking like faggots sword spamming or fucking up shots
It's a shame because I fucking love ship v ship combat and a lot of the chaos that goes with it. It's dogshit to be a solo slooper though and get raped by two or three boarders.
That said it's the current best strategy to sink ships and as much as I loathe it, I still practice as much as I can. But if I'm solo slooping in adventure and a ship with 2 or more players shows up, I'm running away like a coward since I do way better maneuvering than handling boarders
>>
>>336067
As a galleon player I hate sloops that attack and run. I mean it's their best strategy, it's just so annoying. I get that it's what you have to do though. I love the sweaties that try to stick around and fight like they have a chance 2vs4.

Also, the guy steering should be able to hear and see anyone trying to board by a ladder, he can jump down while pulling out a blunderbuss and kill anyone who thinks they can get on by that route. Now the ones that use a cannon to launch themselves to your ship, that's another story, just remember, they usually head straight for the capstan and have to stop to lower it, that's when you shoot them.

i never get why people try making generals here instead of /vg/ aside from big games like Risk of Rain or TF2, and even those are kinda inactive. /vm/ is just a smaller board all together.

Twice now over 2 days I had assholes join my crew and set the ship on fire and grief in any way they could. After they left I looked in my recent players list and found that they went to playing Fortnite. I never played it so is there ways to grief in Fortnite? I wanna give the cunts a taste of their own medicine.

There was a thread on /vg/ when the game came out. It kept hitting page 10 because no one could be bothered to keep the thing bumped and there wasn't enough conversation in-thread to keep it alive organically. Which I'm sure the /sotg/ Discord server probably wasn't helping things

Do you even play the game? That's incentive enough.

>plus can't add due to hardware limitations

What?
>>
>>336924
The game is on Xbox One. It's the main reason behind the 6 ship server maximum, 4 player maximum per ship, only one world event at a time, lack of new areas (though that might change) and other things. I would love to see the day they drop support for a 8 year old console but I assume they want the xbox one playerbase to be below a certain threshold before they pull the plug.
>>
>>336928

Only one intimately familiar with the development process and performance testing can claim this to be so, and even then I would doubt such statements. Moreover, having new ships doesn't mean you need to allow for more ships/players on a server so the idea that having a different kind of a ship will introduce performance issues is unfounded.
>>
>>336931
>Only one intimately familiar with the development process and performance testing
Or you know, just read/watch what the developers have talked about for fucking years

How does that address the difficulty of introducing a new ship?

Why are you trying to do damage control for an abandoned game?

Anyone up for playing? Don't care what we do or what the crew size is as long as it's not tall tales. If you're new I'll help you out with your shit and teach some shit you don't know. Just reply to me if you're interested and I'll post my discord/gamertag/steam for you to add me. Please have a mic, I don't care what your voice sounds like, I just want to play with peeps.
>>
>>336790
You have a twisted view of what wins. I'm not mad I just want to troll their game for a while. Is it worth the dl?
>>
>>336942
You have a ship for 1-2 players, you have a ship for 1-3 players and one for 1-4 players (yes you can gally alone but fuck is it hard) what you want a 5 man ship?6? A gally is slow and clumbsy af and will never win combats without a good crew, I can't imagine having bigger ships and being a better experience.
>>
>>337048
This is the case, without regular content added people only play after new content comes out, and most of them are sweaties that play it all out in 3 days. For the past month I have struggled to get full crews in my galleon open crew games.

>>
>>337243

Could use a 1-man ship, and better solo content too. Mostly I just see "hardware limitation" as a very poor excuse, I assume the devs themselves didn't say that so we can drop it.
>>
>>326090
>>
>>337473
Happened with me and my gf the other day. We started up and fort of fortune was going on so we said fuck it let's try it because neither of us had done it before. Did the entire thing without seeing a single ship on the horizon. I think the ashen boss glitched out too because he died while no one was damaging him.

>>

Didn't imagine someone would check my frames lol.

>>338168
You aim and shot. That's it!
The aim will always be on the center of your screen, so you don't need to keep aiming.
As soon as you enter in aim mode/iron sight you press to shoot.
>>
>>338005
Also... when you start to notice that its more about where you feel the enemy is, than where it shows on screen, you'll hit much more and stop complaining all the time about hitreg

I find that the people who don't work the sail are the ones who board enemy ships and fuck them up. It's still annoying to have to do all the sailing yourself all the time tho and worse if you'r edoing the repairs and bailing. All the work and none of the fun.

So, are they adding a new region to the game or something? I've always wanted a port town in sot.

From what I'm gathering it's 5 tale tales, new enemies, probably a couple of new islands or a new region, new cosmetics, and probably a new faction to grind reputation with their own missions

The tall tales thing didn't occur to me, but that's pretty sweet.

>>341414
I'm pretty stoked about the very existence of a new type/faction of enemy. I would imagine, or hope, that they won't get limited to just appearing in tall tales. If there is a new region, I would guess they'll be that region's pve enemy. I wonder how that would factor in to OoS missions.
Also they said something about side quests, yeah?
