I finally played sea of thieves with one of my friends and I don't know if this is common or not but we instantly got attacked by the Megaladon!

Spend the first hour trying to find a real crew until you finally give up and just do a 2 person ship.. spend the next 2 hours trying to play the game until you realize that it’s the most boring game in the world and there is nothing to do.. Go play something else and wish you had those 3 hours back...
Wolf Among Sheep (21 days ago)
Klumsy Kameleon Even if you can make a real crew. The game is empty.. It’s like they never finished it.. It’s a beta disguised as a full game.. If you think 4 weapons and one fetch quest with 3 variations is a full game idk what to tell you...
Klumsy Kameleon (30 days ago)
Oh Dennis do you have no friends? 😆 that's why people find the game boring, because they don't have any friends to play with!

Nah, bad video. You don't start alone with a big ship. You start with a sloop!
Dan anonymous (3 months ago)
Thanks :)
Mr. Kreb (3 months ago)
I remember once me and a friend were on a sloop and once when heading to an outpost we saw another ship trying to ram us. We turned around and ahot them down and they came back and we sank them again.

CamDBK (5 months ago)
So what exactly is the objective? I get it’s to have fun and all that but is it a Destiny type of “Loot up, hit the highest level, wait.” Type of game?

Thanks a lot, this video was really useful.
CrimsonSerenity (5 months ago)
i play sea of thieves but finding troll groups quite alot whether being put in brig right away because they didnt make a private slot/group action to be able to add a friend after you started or people just generally being rude for lack of a better word either way would anyone like to play together sometime im getting tired of feeling like having to solo in order to get stuff done :/

Add "gL Bayrock" on Xbox Live. Whenever I sail the Galleon we usually need another crew member.

Don’t forget to charm the snakes so they don’t bite you! The skeletons with seaweed are week against melee the shadow ones you need to shine a light on if it’s night or dark and the gold ones you need to get wet. Have a nice day plundering that sweet booty!
Gavin Mitcheson (5 months ago)
Thank you.i neerky lost spout of lout but I learned the information just in time
Charles Lozano (5 months ago)
Lets pretend that I know nothing about the game because I do'nt. That is why I am watching this. What does each button do. What is "lb" your are supposed to hold it down. There is a X,Y,A&B buttons a cursor two joy sticks two trigger buttons a power button and two other buttons. NOTHING marked LB
Sam Akanji (5 months ago)
Charles Lozano you go into the control scheme in the settings to find out, this isn’t rocket science
Raphael Loh (5 months ago)
Seriously? There's no customisation, you have to go through "process of elimination"?

how do u leave your crew
Csaba Tanko (5 months ago)
8:54 Yeah, we got attacked and ran out of bananas and planks, the 3 chests and golden chalice that was onboard simply sank, since the guys attacking us probably were to idiots to care about the treasure, they probably attacked us just to kill us and make us rage (i was with someone when that happened)
midnightmosesuk (5 months ago)
I am a rubbish pirate. Thank'ee for the advice, I shall think upon it the next time I'm on my way down to Davey Jones's Locker. Which happens quite a lot. Pirate Norman "Two Bananas Please" Arkwright.
Shadowreeper213 (5 months ago)
One thing that has just happened to me recently while playing solo was having a fully manned galleon full on charge me after just finishing three gold horders voyages with around seven chests on board my parked boat. I anticipated possible attacks and had my anchor up so I could set sail right away and they missed, but ONE dude managed to jump on board and blunderbussed me overboard. All that progress and time gone because of player toxicity. I know that looting and pirating is in a pirate game, but it really is toxic. I've ran a galleon crew in circles for like ten minutes or more beforehand before they finally decided it wasn't worth it. Even in skeleton forts I've only met one person who wanted to play nice and split the loot, then came a galleon of dicks who wanted everything. Aside from content lightness at launch, douches ruin the game. Other than those complaints, it's an awesome game.
ZTheLonelyWolfZ (10 days ago)
It is annoying. Same thing happened to me after having four captains chests. I was with a friend and went to the Golden Sands outpost while my friend kept on heading towards Crescent Isle. I meet people with the alliance flag, so I get out my siren and ask for an alliance. They seemed nice at first when I boarded their ship, but as I was scrolling through the text chat options, one of them attacks me. I jump off and see them heading where my friend was going. I take a mermaid to my ship, only to be dancing and see cannonballs fly into our boat. I jump off forgetting about our chests. I see it's the same crew, and one boards my ship and crashes it. They kill me and I spawn back at Sandy Shallows with my ship. My friend tells me to come back. As I head towards the island which is across the sea, he leaves my party and I see he's on YouTube. As I'm solo slooping I get an achievement. "This is unacceptable!" Yeah, it's the achievement you get when you give or have your chest stolen from you and cashed in lmao. So yea annoying. But it is a pirate game so I wasn't mad or anything.
LordMarkvirs (5 months ago)
So for example if I start out on a galleon but want to switch to a sloop is that possible or am I just stuck with one ship
DrakeWingGaming (5 months ago)
No amount of positive videos or articles by Eurogamer is going to convince me to spend $60 on what seems like an Early Access game with little actual content, not to mention the recent allegations by a former Rare employee that the company knew about the issues and did nothing.

How do I save the game
it saves automatically.
Jobin Plays (6 months ago)
The game's fun light casual fare, but I'd like to see more stuff to do, and a fleshed out trading economy. Needs way way way more customizations for it to be worth playing long term with it's structure right now. FISHING! Need an NPC who collects and pays out for fish, bigger fish grant bigger payouts, spear fishing for shark/whale/etc. There's so much missing from this game, like wtf, wow, pretty water. ::yawn::

This was the Xbox last hope of an exclusive and it’s average.... if Microsoft exits the console market like people are saying who do think will fill the spot? Will google do something? Or do you think it will just be sony and Nintendo?

Why would Microsoft exit the console market????

You know, you can change your pirate
Brandon May (6 months ago)
You should only get this game with game pass. The game is enjoyable but realistically there is 3 to of hours playing before you have seen and done everything. It is not a complete game by any stretch.

On the ship selection screen, you can go to the options to delete your pirate. So your choice is not set in stone.

Same people complaining about endgame+mission objectives are the same clowns who've put 100s of hours & platinumed minecraft. 😂😂 and this is coming from a person who prefers playstation.
