You just need to get chatting on the mic to make friends on SoT, generally it's a pretty fun community. It's better with your own friends but definitely a game with a more welcoming and fun community overall. There's always asshats 'n 'swashbucklers abound though.

The new seasons looks brilliant. My son and friends till play quite a bit, I'll jump on occasionally with them or some XBL friends who are mad about SoT.

I like that they have yet another slog of a world event that takes forever and incentivizes other ships to camp outside and steal all the hard work you just did. I get that’s the “pirate life” bullshit but I wish they had a half loot mode where I didn’t have to worry about that. One of the reasons I never go for forts or Ashton winds fights.

Wow, they really added nothing. Buy crates, which are just more of the same items. Some minor costumes, and another skeleton event.

I really love the look and feel of Sea Of Thieves, but playing it is such a weirdly alienating slog. Half the time, I have no idea what the fuck I'm supposed to be doing, where I'm supposed to be going, or how long anything is supposed to be taking, and I go do other stuff. I get that they wanted to force players to play co-op, but even then, I don't know that the loop works to the degree that they think it does.

Wish this game was better for single players. I love boating but this is just pants on your own, a damn shame.
Exactly, if this game had a better single player campaign it would be such a blast. All the mechanics work quite well. The visual are also very enjoyable. It is a shame.

This is the best 60 bucks I spend on a game I can never play.

Looks so fun, love pirates, don't have a crew,not soloable.

I have tried this game 3 or 4 times now but always move on to something more fast passed. Super happy it's still doing great! maybe I need to find the right crew.

It's "Busy work with no reward" the game. Such a cool idea but a real missed opportunity.

Pretty much, I think it's one of my most installed/uninstalled games to date, it looks great on the Series X too. I did try playing with my son but he's as useful as a chocolate teapot, then he bogged off and played Train sim, useless.

But you can play all the campaing solo, it's super fun!
Sometimes you need to play smart, ask for help, hide, but this make the run much more unpredictable.

Try yourself!

Apparently there is but..

While this feature being nice and all, as a dad that has different hours of the day to play so it's hard to schedule with others.
