i thought merchant alliance rep grinding was bad.
oh fuck me order of souls is awful. you get barely any rep from skulls and the 'cash in' location always being fucking cancer on outposts is pain.
if you don't find a chest on your travels you end up spending upwards of 10 mins carrying skulls one by one to cash in and inevitably having someone spot your vunerable ass and come charging over which leads to a half an hour chase until they give up.
at least merchants cash in was on the docks but solo slooping is cancer for this shit.

How do people play this solo, seems like hell to have to watch your back and sell all the loot yourself.
>>
>>671258
Many, many, many hours of getting your shit pushed in, then some more hours of getting your shit pushed in. And then, eventually, you get slightly better at sailing solo and defending your shit.
>>
>>671247
np anon, it's saved my ass countless times as a solofag; it's even better for turning shit in at reapers when you're doing reaper runs
>>671258
Unironically be a paranoid schizo, just check the horizon every few minutes. Also:
>familiarize yourself with key sounds like someone boarding or someone being launched from a cannon
>learn how to use the harpoons and do tight harpoon turns
>be good at sail management and pre-planning your path so your ship can move in your desired direction while you're on cannons/repairs
>stock the fuck up on cursed balls and supplies in general, it's hell on earth if you're caught with your pants down and lacking munitions
>avoid repairing unless absolutely necessary or you have 30s-1m breathing room, just bail as you go
>use harpoon rowboat to bring your loot next to a representative and sell it fast. Don't stack it in the boat UNTIL you're ready to sell, a tucker can steal it all or the boat can detach if shot at by cannons enough times
>if you care about loot at all, avoid stacking large amounts, the pain is less if you lost less. >Avoid running from pvp unless you know you can't win (e.g. minimal supplies)
>use your mic; 2/3 of sketchy encounters I've had turned out to be friendly because we could talk to each other
As far as pvp goes when solo, you NEED to get good at naval, so practice your cannon aim and maneuvering. I don't bother wasting firebombs on sloops unless they're new and get distracted trying to fix a minor hole
>when first engaging a ship, aim for their cannons to kill their cannoneer or keep them off the cannons; then chainshot their masts/wheel/capstan
>keep your distance, you should always keep out of range as best you can from brigs/galleys.
>DO NOT leave your sloop to board unless you're confident you've fully disabled the enemy. If you fall off and they board, it's p much game over for a solo
Solo is hard mode but you put yourself in a fantastic position for learning how to manage a ship
>>
>>671268
Fucked up the formatting a bit but regarding firebombs:
>Use them against brigs and galleys in particular, fire is a menace for galleys. I don't bother wasting firebombs on sloops unless they're new and get distracted trying to fix a minor hole
>Fighting a brig? Keep firing consistently at their deck and put pressure on them. Brigs are the fastest ship in the game but also sink the fastest. Their relatively flat upper deck makes them vulnerable to cannon shots.
>Fighting a galley? Kill cannoneers if you can, and alternate between lower and mid deck holes. A lot of crews don't bother fixing mid deck until lower deck is fully submerged. Ballastballs are a kill shot for a galley with a submerged lower deck and mid deck holes.
>Use green curse balls if you find yourself getting into an enemy's direct broadside and aim for the cannons

I've put like 200 hours just solo and I've gotten my shit pushed in and had a bad time like three times total.
Cuz if I don't want to fight or see any advantage I can take I just leave.
Unloading loot is definitely slower and thanks to the buggy respawn system if you die you sink and that's that, but other than that it's really not that hard.

OOS could use a new voyage type or two, or at least update existing voyages to be less godawful. Make the minimum number of skulls on an island 2 or 3 instead of hopping across 6 or huge 7 islands each with one captain. Ideas for voyage types? For me:
>Skelly ship bounty, go around finding a designated sloop, drops less loot than normal world event skelly sloops and only drops skulls
>Crypt finding - search for a couple summoning pieces to bring to a designated inactive skelly fort - you summon a weaker skeleton lord protected by a couple captains, all drop premium skulls
>Mystery solving - find skulls of prominent captains that went missing. Same mechanics as ferryman’s lantern TT, dig up 3 or 4 crew skulls, fight off a wave or 3 of skeletons, then dig up captain’s skull

>this weird assumption about shit when I literally gave you the reason
Nah these kids were non pirate legends, sloop players were instructing them, didn't even know when they left and sailed to the outpost on the sloop that I could see all the treasure they were burying until I told them so they tried to scuttle the ship lol, before that they didn't know I could see the map from the brig and where the alliance ship had first gone to try and bury treasure.

some golden points from it all since you asked
>immediately after brigging me they say they can't even let me out of the brig so I might as well leave, tell them that's weird to try to lie about, they sperg and say I must be new because there's a timer on the brig and they can't let me out

They used to have a voyage where you go dig up some gifts or a Reaper chest (idr) and stronghold kegs and a Lord would pop up at the last dig you could fight, but if you died he 50% disappeared. You'd go to 3 close forts to dig them up. I liked it and often did the voyage if I saw L1 reapers doing stuff. I'd get the kegs and set them up at the Hideout to chain explode and sink their ship. Worked for me twice. This was when the Reaper chests were new.

I know I was being a dickhead wasting some dickheads time, why do you need to pretend like the stupid zoomer kids I fucked with were in any way correct either? What a stupid bitch you are dude, reflect on it. Some people just do shit for the fun of it and upsetting toxic retards like you probably are who don't believe they're toxic is fucking hilarious. Play stupid games win stupid prizes, maybe next time they won't immediately brig someone after the work is done instead of asking them to hop for a friend who's suddenly available or better yet maybe just learn how to closed crew altogether. Being an asshole, I can comprehend that i'm an asshole and the retards I fucked with were retarded assholes too, can you comprehend that you're retarded?

18 year olds aren't 'children' and you're being facetious, but facetiousness aside being grown I have a decent amount of free time having spent most of my 20s cementing this position for myself and it didn't come from playing video games at 18, if anything the 18 year olds are wasting their youth and lives playing video games while I - an established adult, have gained for myself the ability to actually 'waste' my time wasting someone else's time. You might have missed that little part at the end of my first post that said 'worth it' because having zoomers scream into the mic about how bald and fat I must be and then defaulting to having to report me to daddy xbox for communication abuse out of impotent rage is actually hilarious

I'm not sure yet if I want to go with a reference/historical ship or not yet. I was thinking the Acheron for a galleon, the Queen Anne's Revenge for a brig, and no idea yet for a sloop. Maybe something stupid that makes me laugh, like the Parrothead.

Autism time.
What exactly makes Flameheart "evil"? All I could find was that he wants to tear down the border between the Sea of Thieves and the Sea of the Damned but is there anything else to it?
He basically just wants to expand the playable area, give pirates more stuff to loot/shoot up and crown himself King of the SoT, aka kick the Pirate Lord from his position. While all other factions are about treasure hunting, bounty collecting and trading, his Reapers are the only ones who are actually about Piracy and keep the Trade Companies from establishing a grip on the Sea.
Also did he even wrong anyone except Stitcher Jim and Wanda, a notoriously unloyal lowlife and a psychotic skeleton respectively?
>>
>>672869
Idk I just dig up chests and sell them, dude. Lmao.
>>
>>672869
It's a matter of perspective, but you do have some very valid points. The Pirate Lord sailed to the Sea of Thieves to escape the Grand Maritime Union and create a haven for all pirates. But now he's allowed the trading companies to be established and many people in the Sea are losing sight of what a pirate really is.

The Reapers' motto is "Pirates for all time", and they are all about getting back to the core of piracy. So really I don't think Flameheart is all that bad.
>>
>>672869
Flameheart's fundamental issue is that he wants piracy as a sea-wide removal of all restrictions and institutions, but only as a means to an end to put himself on top as "king" with all others beneath him, meanwhile Ramsey's alternative is a carefully curated expanse where pirates are allowed to do what they please (as long as it doesn't upset the status quo of course.) Ironically enough the friction between them may be what actually sets the Sea of Thieves on the path to true freedom, good and bad. The truth is that you shouldn't pick a side at all. The more pirates there are acting of their own accord means that the likelihood of any party becoming dominant becomes nonexistent.

am i being dumb or does this update seem like a bad investment or resources. it's cool theirs more ship cosmetics but what if you play in a crew and don't design the ship at all?
you're unlocking all these cosmetics but because you play with your friends you just don't use them.
>>
>>673262
It's not dumb because it's delivering many things people have been wanting for a very long time.
>>
>>673262
>this update isn't tailored to my needs and so it is a bad use of resources
Retard take but I'll bite. I quit the game when I first played because it lacked these very features. When it was announced, I signed up for Insider and logged 200 hour preparing for the update. Your wants and needs don't reflect the playerbases wants and needs, and even with friends you can still enjoy the cosmetics and grind. My only complaint on the friends-front is that crewmates don't earn progress towards their own cosmetics while crewing with a Captaincy ship.

All that aside, Rare has a massive team working on SoT. The team that worked on S07 was likely barebones by the time the "polish phase" came around and the ones who left the S07 team likely moved right on to making S08 about 2 months ago, hence the delays during the "polish phase"
>>
>>673270
like what?
>>673275
>this update isn't tailored to my needs and so it is a bad use of resources
basically yeah, an update that focuses on something that one player will enjoy in a mostly team based game is kinda dumb no?
>on the friends-front is that crewmates don't earn progress towards their own cosmetics while crewing with a Captaincy ship.
Don't they pretty sure the trailer said otherwise, don't qoute me though i don't really care for this update.

>Don't they pretty sure the trailer said otherwise
ESL-kun, I did say I signed up for Insider right? You think, maybe, I know a bit more than you at this point? There was nothing about milestones being shared with crewmates in that video because it's not a feature.
>not sure what you're getting at with the polish phase
It was clear that you don't understand code development pipelines before you said this but thank you for clarifying.

The first 4 words of your OP
>am i being dumb
are a mantra you should repeat again and again until it sinks in that you are, in fact, being dumb. No one will be able to explain why this is a good feature because you're too dumb to grasp another persons viewpoint without being spoonfed.
>>
>>673300
you seem pretty spergy for no reason man, yeah I play this games my friends and I think this game caters to more team play than solo play.
look I get you're a big hotshot insider who knows everything but maybe watch their recent videos about this season you can earn it as a captain or a member of a crew.
i told you im not sure what you're getting at because it made no sense in context, it's like me telling you about my favorite fruit (apple by the way) and then saying ahh you don't get the crispness of apple.

You should relax man. It was a question not a declaration that this patch was shit it's nice you and that other guy a super into it even if you wont really say why.
>>
>>673310
You're asking retarded questions and lack any understanding of the basic processes that go into making these updates, yet at the same time think your opinion is somehow valid and that it should steer the course of the game. You also want something that's been discussed publicly over and over again to be spoonfed to you. The only sperg here is you, and you should go back to wherever it is you came from.
>>
>>673318
I'm asking how other people feel about the update, what else would this thread talk about?
You're projecting a lot of this onto my post, when did I say I could do a better job than rare.
Did some reaper 5 hopper just sink you after a 10 hour stack, you seem awfully upset at me when I just asked your opinion on the new patch. I even corrected you free of charge for your misnomer about the milestones isn't that spoonfeding?
You really too cool to just say what you like about an update?

Should I use it to buy a Sloop or a Brig tomorrow? I like solo slooping every now and then but when I play with friends we're always in a Brig or Galleon.

I'm guessing you are poor as shit and can only afford one and not both, so in that case I'd go with the sloop, since with any luck one of your friends will buy one of the others.

Brigs are the best ship, but sloops are getting a few buffs, so pick whatever you prefer honestly.
If you want you can just pick one and ask one of your friends to buy the other so you don't wrestle over captaincy when you sail in the ship you both own

The deep dive said “milestones for captain and crew”.

I got hung up on that same phrasing because it makes it seem like it would if everyone owned a boat.

That said how long/how much shit is it going to take to get a second boat?

Back in year one, when pirate legend was much more tedious to gain, I took particular joy in slowing down people's progress . One particular night I came across a sloop at Mermaid's Hideaway which was attempting to catch animals for merchant reputation. He didn't notice me board his mast, where I proceeded to watch him spend an hour trying to catch a golden chicken while dying to skeletons repeatedly. Eventually he caught the chicken and started to sail towards Golden Sands Outpost, however, before he could park I leaped out of his mast and killed him. I then spawn camped him for half an hour before he gave up on fighting and decided to just swim the chicken over. When he was halfway to shore I sniped him, leaving the chicken to drown in the water. He could never get past my blunder sword combo, and could not save it. Your business is that chicken slowly drowning in an oversaturated market, and for that reason I am out.

This is probably the worst update to the game and the total content is probably worth about an hour. 6 months for this. And we still don't have foxes.

So for all the cool trinkets you need to do everything you've already done, expect now on a 'captained' ship.

Amazing, I sure do really want to grind the same grind I already ground for this new shit update

This patch offers a lot of cool QoL stuff like being able to buy more from an outpost, being able to sell all in one location, better ship customization. But yeah it feels lukewarm for a major patch especially when as you've pointed out they're asking you to do the same grind you've done before and they just pretend you haven't done it.

They cant even lie and say
>w-we never tracked this before!

because they did weird update overall a lot of stuff needed to happen but it wasn't really worth the delays I really wish they added the new ways to play and progress like they advertised in the season infographic.
>>
>>673925
I'm sort of ok with the grind, understanding they are supposed to be extremely long term goals, so it does make it feel underwhelming today though.

It did need a little more that we could do right now thouh.

Right. after a few hours my conclusions are that.
the captaincy shit is indeed cool but the soverigns 'sell in one place' and the ability to get supplies quickly and full-repair your ship is really great.
in other words i think this is just a 'flavor' patch but im so fucking glad they didn't add the auto-aim thing from the beta they were apparently testing.
i assume we'll get more content with this new 'adventure' shit.
im just really happy with the soverigns alone because having a good selling point is god-tier.
>>
>>673945

>>673945
Has this change made the game bearable for solo players? I used to play solo but I hated solo selling so much I just stopped entirely.
>>
>>673951
They made several very important sloop buffs for solo players. Masts take two chainshots to knock down, reduced Ferry times for solo players, less knockback from cannonballs.
>>
>>673951
i managed to sell over 40 order of souls skulls and it didn't take me a decade.
it took about 2 mins.
so yes it's really helped

long-shot guess here. but on the roadmap they said 'role-play' expansions for season 8 so maybe RP people want to have a variety of brigs or something?

So no new commendations for captaincy? None at all?
I guess Rare thinks milestones are enough, but I'd prefer to get at least some achievable short term goals instead of just hundreds of "grind you ass off until the servers are shut down" accolades. You know, just a little 100 captains voyages here, some stool related stuff there, maybe something for turning in logbooks, something that isn't spending multiple real life days on fire/sleeping/sitting/staring at the fishing lure waiting for a bite.
>>

There's like no PVP milestones I think they're saving it all for season 8.

Pretty much everything really. the game's quite solo-friendly. id reccomend starting with the tall tales if your a fresh start

At least some of the milestones like voyages can be relatively easily cheesed. But some of this shit is going to take ages.

It's just a collection of all the trading company voyages rolled into one. Exactly like the standard pirate legend voyages.

These new respawn rates are insane, who playtested this? You kill someone and they are back faster than you can blink.

Its a nightmare to do any boarding now since you can't even be rezzed.

>>674382
Its only for solo sloops.
Before you just had to board till you got enemy killed once + camp respawn.
3+ players respawn timer should be nerfed tho
>>
>>674390
It wouldn't be that hard to just have it scale based on crew size. This would also be handy if someone on your crew randomly quits during a fight, at least as a slight compensation you'd get a slightly faster respawn till it gets filled.
>>
Lmao rare wants us to farm shit all over again for trinkets, also no pvp related trinkets, see you in season 8 i guess.
>>
Not sure if this was mentioned anywhere in the patch notes or I just got really lucky with stuff other crews ditched, but it looks like chests that wash up on random islands are barnacled now, so there's a third source of them besides shipwrecks and skeleton ships.
>>
Was gonna try this game, but I heard it's shit solo, and none of my friends are interested. Any resource for finding crews out there?

I keep getting whimsical errors when I try to buy from the shops. Must have nodded off try again later. Sorry I can't find that in my inventory right now.
>>
>>674509
Depends on what machine you're playing on. Discord for pc and xbox has their own thing I forget what its called. Solo is fine though, just takes longer to get shit done especially long voyages. Just jump into an open crew and if they suck try again. I try 3 times and if I don't get a good crew by then I solo.
>>
>>674495
That has been a thing since shrouded spoils over 2 years ago.

To add to this you can go diving around islands to find them aswell, look for the glint. Which is is how I did it, plus shipwrecks.

Hey guys returning/newbie player here
Can you get ships for free/in-game currency or just buy? Do I have to buy my own ship to do captaincy stuff?
>>
>>674959
>Do I have to buy my own ship to do captaincy stuff?
Yes. It's with the standard gold that you use for buying cosmetics, and they're pretty cheap.
>>
>>674959
>Can you get ships for free/in-game currency or just buy?

Ships are only availble for in-game gold, renaming them is paid and costs way too much, you can also scrap your ship and buy a new one to rename it, or play it for hundreds of hours to unlock the ability to buy a second ship.

>Do I have to buy my own ship to do captaincy stuff?
Yes, everything in captaincy that isn't balance related requires your own ship, or to sail on a ship captained by someone else.
>>

Nice concept but missed the mark entirely, shit seems designed by people who don't play games and people who just want to roleplay in SoT.

The latter is a weird group, a week ago I joined a Galleon LF1M Stacking Athena and it was three 'veterans' who from the conversation had apparently been playing since the start of SoT but all three just spent most of the time changing clothes, showing off "discontinued" cosmetics etc and talking about the captain update. This was three adults(one female) and I was literally doing all the sail work, almost all the Athena quest work etc. The female, who was/is apparently an insider who knew beyond what the public insiders know and apparently signed an NDA, was bragging about knowing about a coming Order of Souls update. Somewhere one of them asked the others what they had for Athena levels and all three 'veterans' had lower Athena than I did and I just started like a month ago.
>>
>>675501
If true hopefully there is a decent OOS update; compared to the other trading companies it’s probably the most stale content-wise.
>>

>>675505

>>
>>675511
>>675501
When are devs going to learn that catering to the roleplay whales is fine as long as you release real gameplay with it. Decorating the ship with new cosmetics isn't really gameplay, it's flavor that enhances gameplay, when gameplay is getting stale the answer isnt more cosmetics and spit shining your turds, it's creating more engaging gameplay. If the only "new things to do" in an update are changing clothes and changing cosmetic features that have no bearing on the rest of the game, nobody besides your most vocal minority(roleplaying whales who main reddit) will be pleased
>>
>>675511
Because your anecdotal evidence doesn't show it's catered to roleplayers. If anything the extreme amount of grinding required would seem that it caters to the more hardcore players who just want to get shit done and turn in loot.
>>
>>675496
OK share how to do all these exploits.
>>
>>675534
>>buying literally every ship and trinket costs less than DA sails
So you don't understand how the update works.
>>
>>675534
not him, but being able to look at a ship and feel more attached to it because it's more closely your ship would probably motivate people more to not give up in fights.

>>675543
You are factually wrong about the trinkets though, it's not a strawman.
>>
>>675546

You're obviously taking this too personal. When you're ready to address the topic and talk like an adult we can continue.

I pointed out that you are factually incorrect about the trinket and other ship costs, and you've decided to spout nonsense and babby's first internet argument words.

>>675516
I would bet money that less than 1% of the people in this game roleplay actively (more than just talking in a pirate voice when you meet someone). I don't know why Rare caters to them so much.

>>
>>675422
It's clearly aimed at new players. Veterans are getting the middle finger and "just do it all again lmao"
>>
>>675700
I don't think it even succeeds in that. New players are going to log in, work towards their new ship, and then see shit milestones like complete 1000 voyages, AFK for 100 hours, catch 2500 fish and the like, and just thing it's too much. I've seen some people argue that the milestones aren't there as achievements but as stat trackers, but then why are unlockables hidden behind them.
>>
>>675704
I don't think I've seen anyone argue they aren't achievements, but the intent was to be "passive" achievements. The idea being that you wouldn't change the way you play or focus on them and you would just naturally unlock stuff for doing what you already do.

But naturally if you put unlockable stuff behind it there are going to be people who want to grind it out and for them this is going to feel pretty shitty. So not sure if it's a good system or not, but I see why it's divisive.
>>
>>675713
No one is going to naturally spend 100 hours on fire, or asleep. No one is going to naturally catch 2,500 fish since you don't need even half of that to max hunters call. Few are going to do FOTD 100 times.
>>
>>675767
I mean I've spent a shitload of time on fire. Not 100 hours, but probably enough to earn at least the first level of that milestone.

I think the idea is sound but the things they chose are the problem. Sleeping and sitting and shit should not be on there and should have been replaced with more interesting things.

Random question, do you prefix "the" or not? I feel like in most fiction works they refer to ships with a "the" prefix but then if others look at it in SoT they don't see it so I feel like it'd be weird not to add it.
>>
>>675956
You basically have it right. In naval parlance the "the" is implied and is not actually in the name. But all of the Rare generated names and ships show in their videos they have the "the" written out, and it looks better that way.

So either way is correct, but I personally put the "the" on my ships.
>>
>>675957
Yeah looks better on the ship itself but when others look at your ship from afar for the title card I feel like it'd look better with it, so there's no winning. They should add it to title cards basically.
>>
>>675961
But it doesn't work for all ships. Like if my ship is named Jessica, "The Jessica" would look stupid.

So is there a point to captain voyages besides having a stock on board? It's the same shit as before and doesn't give anything more, except now you can get stuck with garbage you don't want to do.
>>
>>676361
That's pretty much it. On the plus side they do make it easy to get some of the older commendations for completing X number of voyages. I bought an assload of the Gold Hoarder captains dig voyages and would just cancel and drop new ones until I got small islands to dig at to make it fast.
>>
>>676361
Way easier to cheese certain commendations with a big stack of captain voyages.

How do I break a deadlock in pvp battles?
Last evening my open crew was just slightly better in a Brig vs Brig battle against a Reaper 1 but neither side could get the upper hand until all curse balls and chainshot was spent.
Both if us fended off every single boarding attempt with vigilance and they always ran away whenever their need to repair became too big.
It only ended after like half an hour when we gave up and portal hopped.
>>
>>676371
You can board and then shoot around ladders with cannonballs to defend them as they climb, a board is enough to break a stalemate if you can even just anchor them
>>

It's hard to say without knowing more details. If they were able to run and repair it sounds like both of you were playing very defensively and that will lead to battles like this.

The only thing I can suggest in cases like that is to play more aggressively and go a bit more dangerous. Even if you lose at least there is a decisive victor.

That's the thing, like if I want to get something decent I'd rather just pick the 200 gold voyage from emissaries and do it over and over, without having to deal with the shittier ones. Like I picked the long one I guess for merchants and was given one for fucking 10 animals or something stupid.

Ram them to get your boarders on and blunder bomb off any boarders to your ship or kill them if you can. But only do that if you're confident in your pvp skills.

Veil voyages are the best way by far. Sell what loot you have after the first two parts but before inserting the third gem and spawning the tornado to be safe.

He's clearly not confident in his abilities so selling before the most dangerous part makes sense. Also if you put the stone in at the outpost then sell you'll probably be grade 4 and are getting almost as much anyway.

>>678190

Reiterating what >>678196 said, but Veil's are both low stress and really fun to do solo. Just be decently stocked going into the last part and you'll be fine.
Before you start, check the emissary tables to see who is doing what. I always still do emissary, but if there's another guy doing Athena's or a couple Merchants then you're pretty much guaranteed to be in the clear.
That said, it's not worth selling until the very end simply because the loot you'll get in the first three parts are teeny tiny compared to the loot at the end. It's paltry and not worth the fuss.
I'd also say just keep an eye out for ships in the last fight. Launch a few cannon volleys and then slink off to restock and repair and look around. If you see anyone on the horizon at all, just check in on them every minute or so. If they're barrelling down towards you, put the fort in between you and them and leave the other direction. You can always come back and finish the fort later.
If you get fucked and you think they're finishing the fort and want to be vindictive, you might be able to cancel the quest and prevent them from getting loot but I don't know for sure.
To be fair I've done the veil solo about 5 times and never actually had an issue.
>>
>>678231
much appreciated anon, I usually play with others but they're not really interested in the latest update.
>>
>>678231
Yeah, the fort just disappears into thin air once the voyage is cancelled. I remember a lot of Reapers crying about that, saying it shouldn't be cancellable in stage 3, or that the fort should remain loaded as long as ships are near it because as it is now the Athena emissary can deny them their hard earned loot.
>>
>>678242
I can see the argument for being able to cancel it both ways. If you're doing the best Athena mission with the best loot I feel like you should be forced to accept that risk of it being stolen, but the Lost Voyage merchant missions work the same way so there's already precedent for doing things this way.
>>
>>678242
>Yeah, the fort just disappears into thin air once the voyage is cancelled.
Oh god lol I love it

>>678253
>If you're doing the best Athena mission with the best loot I feel like you should be forced to accept that risk of it being stolen
My counter to that is cancelling it already sacrifices the loot you would have gained from it
>>
>>678256
>My counter to that is cancelling it already sacrifices the loot you would have gained from it
True, so it's not like it's a complete win for the person cancelling it. I just prefer situations where you have to play to win instead of playing to "not lose". Cancelling the voyage just ends it very anti-climatically, and is boring to me.
>>
>>678256
and this is why this guy plays solo
>>
>>678259
>I just prefer situations where you have to play to win instead of playing to "not lose"
Since the guy with the voyage has everything to lose and nothing to gain through victory and the guy who is attacking has nothing to lose and everything to gain through winning, the person with the voyage will always be playing to not lose.
If they've already beaten me and I cancel the voyage then they've still already won and gain the rewards of victory. It's just that the rewards of victory aren't much.
>>
>>678277
>Since the guy with the voyage has everything to lose and nothing to gain through victory and the guy who is attacking has nothing to lose and everything to gain through winning, the person with the voyage will always be playing to not lose.
Sure, but that's how the game has always been and is nothing new. I get and play both sides, I just like it better when there's more risk involved. Even when I'm the one doing the voyage it's more fun knowing there's risk.
>>
>>678279
Either way you are still risking getting nothing from the voyage. One is just on your terms and one isn't.
Players should always have the freedom to deny others a prize if they choose to make the sacrifice.
>>
>>678285
>Players should always have the freedom to deny others a prize if they choose to make the sacrifice.
And I disagree. Not saying that way is wrong, I just think it's less interesting.
>>
>>678231
>you might be able to cancel the quest and prevent them from getting loot but I don't know for sure.

I've stolen quite a few Veils, from what I've learned:
If they cancel before the last of 3 minor forts are destroyed, the tornado and ghost fleet will vanish but the buildings remain, but the game will not allow you to sail up to or cannon over to the center fort. You just bounce off, and your ship can do some freaky shove backs if you keep trying.
If they cancel with the tornado down, the fleet and fort defences disappear, you can go up to the fort but there's no loot there.
In both cases, any storage crates in the water or on the minor forts remain.

My advice: If you solo a Veil and a ship rolls up on you, sail off and let them finish it for you, meanwhile, go get a keg and a rowboat. While they are fighting the final fort, row up and keg them while they are busy repairing. The last part of the fort is pretty intense and can cause the crew to not pay any attention to whats going on besides repairing and killing the fort. I've done this before, it works especially if you live and kill off the crew.

Newbie here. Feel like I'm missing out on something. The rewards for missions and the cost of shit at the store seems out of proportion. Like, I'd have to grind really hard to buy anything.
>>
>>678763
You should make a profit on any voyage you take, though the later voyages are obviously more profitable. I'm not sure how out of proportion you think they are, but you shouldn't be expecting to buy whole new sets of things after every voyage. Ship parts especially are intended to be something bigger to work towards.
>>
>>678763
The basic missions are horrible. The fun stuff starts at about grade 25 for each faction. I would've quit in the first couple of hours if I didn't have friends to play with that showed me the more advanced voyages and world events.
Though, once you start doing these advanced missions, the cosmetics start to become ridiculously cheap. I could buy half the clothing shop with the amount of money I make in the average 4 hour session nowadays.
>>
>>678765
Well I'm doing like 5k per voyage, rough estimate but I sell treasure I find at around 500-1500 gold so it's somewhere around that.

>>678766
I'm 20 at around all of them. Maybe I should really focus on one faction. Order of the lost souls seems the easiest out of the bunch.
>>
>>678769
OOS is actually the hardest. Merchant is the easiest after you unlock the next voyage type (at 25), while Gold Hoarder is somewhere in the middle. If you're about at that threshold just keep pushing until 25. Also make sure to buy the emissary for each faction,
>>
>>678769
That sounds about right. And yeah what >>678773 said is important, at 25 you get a new voyage type for each company and can raise an Emissary Flag to make more gold, so it'll go up pretty quick from there.
>>
>>678773
>>678778
Shit, thanks boys. I'll focus on that and see where it gets me. I thought OOS would be the easiest because it's the least amount of time searching and the maximum amount of time fighting skeletons. Guess it doesn't remain the same at higher voyages.
>>
>>678791
No, the next one you'll get is naval against ghost ships. Which is much more fun and more profitable, but certainly more challenging than the other voyages.

Rare are shit. Open crew is awful because it wont let you filter for language or filter for emissary.
It's literally fling anyone to anywhere and hope the in game shitty wheel can suffice but it rarely can.
All they'd have to do to make it no garbage is add a couple options to indicate what langauges people spoke and what gameplay they wanted to do.

But no rare you use discord to do any crewing up so open crew remains this dice roll where you lose most the time and it's never going to get improved because rare is too busy stroking their own cocks when they think about the word community.

Honestly, I think all they need to do is change the queueing priority so people not at an outpost are prioritized. I've opened my crew up sometimes to get a 4th when I get a good server and someone has to leave, but it can take half an hour for no one to join. Being able to join open crew, see if they're doing something you want to do, and leave instantly knowing you can keep cycling quickly would pretty much immediately solve most problems with the system.

also queuing mic'd players with non mics. It only puts you in random servers when there's no one else online, so that's not really an issue, just the grand wizards playing at 2:00 A.M might have to play with the asians once in a while

>it wont let you filter for language
Does any game do that?
>>
>>679876
For pugging? Yes. That being said it's only marginally more useful as you'll find people who speak your language but are also retarded.
>>
>>679876
None I've played. It filters by region, so I rarely end up playing with foreigners.
>>

>Grand wizards playing at 2AM
I was playing midday every time it's happened lol I don't even play past like 10pm, if anything it's Korean/Chinese kids playing in their middle of the night

>see some guys clearing a fort in a sloop
>keg them

I think I have a problem but god damn I love kegs so much it's insane

Nigga just turn on translate crew chat in the menus. It can even translate speech.
>>
>>679890
>For pugging? Yes.
Which ones?
Not trying to say you're wrong or anything, I'm genuinely curious. I'm mostly just familiar with regions
>>
>>679922
nta but I remember seeing it in one or two games and that's it, I can't even remember the names of either now but it's a thing in at least one small game, maybe a larger one as well
>>
>>679906
I wish they still had the reaper bombkegger rowboat
I think the lanterns gone now, I took a newb over and I couldn't see the chest for it and the ghost text is gone too, skeleton is still there tho.
>>
>>680016
I'm pretty new to the game so I have no idea what any of that means, but if they took away an option for kegging people then I'm disappointed. The guy who got me into the game said I also missed out on some sort of keg cannonballs
>>
>>680016
>>680020
forgot to say that the lantern is still there, we found it last night
>>
>>680020
I think what he was talking about is still in the game, they're just locked behind RNG in a voyage instead of a guaranteed drop from a world event, so really not worth it

pretty hype that theyre finally opening the hatch at reapers. Can't wait to see what theyll have down there, maybe some reaper only merchants selling exclusive cosmetics...
>>
>>680194
You can get a Skeleton Curse to turn into a spooky scary skeleton, complete with special skeleton cosmetics. But you've got to be a real Reaper.

lol reading their reasoning though made sense and it's lame they reneged on it

It wouldn't have been an issue if they had just picked better Milestones to track instead of mostly boring shit that people don't want to do.
>>
>>680539
You're not wrong and in fact - a different trophy for every fish? I mean come the fuck on, there's so many random whacky shit you can do in this game that would make hilarious or great trophies and I understand future content but having it so bloated with random shit, cmon

a side note if sail my ship again and 3/4 the shit is reset and I have to spend more than I'll make in the session to save it again, i'm not saving shit to the boat till it's fixed lol how do they manage to fuck this shit up
>>
>>680538
Retard. They increased milestones for the ones that are easy to achieve, and decreased it for ones that literally no one can feasibly get without grinding for. Were you expecting anyone to sit in a black screen for 4 days of their life?

Hi. Do I need a mic to play with you guys? I've only ever played solo.
>>

i like the colour of that boat. which one is it?
>>
>>680935
Looks like The Azure Scout from Arena. Meaning if you don't have it you can't get it.
>>
>>680929
Yes
>>

lol newbie reapers not even intimidating

how fucking small is the game actually
>>
>>681261
There's plenty of players, but there's no one who uses that feature because there isn't any point at all.
>>
>>681262
Pretty much this. Once you earn the commendations for using the map board (assuming you even care about those) there's literally zero reason to use them ever again.

The problem with it is there's no indication what you're digging up has any value. They need titles based on how much the treasure buried is worth, pitiful, plentiful, bountyful, splendid etc. No one bothers with them because you just end up sailing out and digging up a Keg and a Silvered Cup or a couple Seafarer’s Chests.
