    Watched quite a few youtube videos of this game last night, and am fairly jacked up about it. Think I'm gonna steer my pirate into being as similar to me as possible. He's gonna be a yuge asshole.

    Yeah, I think most are of the fight when seeing other pirates opinion. Probably the most frustrating thing is hiding near a loot turn in, and then killing the pirate turning in their loot. Stealing said loot and turning it in. I've only done it once, but I'm still laughing about it.

    Do you need a mic to play this game? I mean, do you have to talk to your squad during the game to communicate and shit? Cuz, I'm pretty effin antisocial and communicating with random 8 year olds while playing a game might not jive with me.

    Yeah comms is pretty fucking important if you want to play with a crew. That said, they have solo and duo ship options. Also, if you join a boat with squeakers just leave and find a new one. Most of the random boats I was on had pretty chill people for the most part.

    The stress test going on this weekend is available to anyone with Xbox One. You have to download the Xbox Insider App and then you can download the game. I'm installing now.

    Also, please add me because I don't want to play with randoms all the time.

    Got the beta going on finally on my PC. Installing now. Does anyone want to group up? Will be my first experience. I guess you have to add people through the XBOX app?

    Welp I feel like I can't get any better at this game. I snuck aboard a galleon when running a sloop with a random and killed the entire crew. I ran their boat into an island but it didn't damage it enough sink and they all respawned and killed me. I respawned back on our boat we ran to the nearest island to get supplies because we were out of cannonballs. I went ashore and they showed up after us. I found a gunpowder barrel on the island and hopped in the ocean ahead of where they were circling the island. They ended up anchoring just off the coast and I swam up to the boat hopped on the ladder and took the gunpowder downstairs dodging a couple of swinging sabres. They chased me below and shot at me and hit the gunpowder which proceeded to explode killing us all and sinking their ship. I respawned just in time to see the crows nest creep beneath the white caps.

    This happened in the first hour.

    Can't wait for more.

    I have this DL'd but none of my friends have it DL'd, so I haven't gotten to play the beta yet. It's driving me nuts.

    Umm I would love to play with you. I’m assuming you’re on XBox?

    I solo queued all weekend and had no problems getting in. The sloop was better though because twice I queued into parties of 3 on a galleon and they all threw me into the brig. I stayed locked in there for awhile one time.

    I ended the night with two 15 year old brits and some dude from South Georgia on a galleon. We hunted for chests and blew up quite a few ships before the server shut down.

    It seems a large percentage of the beta player base is on Xbox which makes sense because I was able to run circles around a lot of other players while being on PC. All but one person I played with was on XBox.

    Game is super fun and will provide content for literally every single type of player. You can RP. You can solo PVE or PVP. You can grind. You can group PVE or PVP. You can explore and solve riddles and find chests. It’s massive. Very few betas I’ve played require a 20gig download.

    I played the shit out of the alpha, but haven't gotten a chance to run the Beta yet. Fortnite addiction, Smite addiction, Monster Hunter World, new updates to BF1, and then the occasional request for Overwatch.

    That said, Sea of Thieves would be top 4 right now if I had someone to play with. I'll add you jplaYa

    I think if you have xbox insider you can play the beta for free regardless. There's a reddit post on it. Maybe that's just for PC homies. I pre-ordered anyway but yeah.

    If they’re letting us play the beta this much then they must have a ton in store for the release and beyond.


    Still holding out hope that the Kraken will appear this weekend.

    YorkXboxers...but beware that my 9 year old plays it more than I do. He's better than me, but if mom walks in and hears some YARRRR MATEY F bombs it'll be game over for both of us.

    The real question is whether or not all of this 'progress' during the tests will carry over to the finished game? I'd think not..

    It won’t. Last test I really didn’t grind much because of that. My crew was rolling around with a bunch of chests just to make it interesting.

    Came on here to ask how everyone was liking it. Most of what I've read says the game is very very light on content. Only 2 types of ships, you can't open treasure chest (only trade them for gold that doesn't really buy much), and no progression system other than cosmetic (not necessarily a bad thing if you have a wider range of ships). Everyone I see that says that says it's still pretty fun, though. seems like easily fixable stuff, and more content will mostly fix things

    Pretty much this. I’ve probably only gotten 2-3hrs logged. Had fun doing a solo mission and sailing my ship and a buddy signed on a we found a few treasure chests and a map in a bottle but only turned in the two chests. I’ll be grouping up on the larger ship tomorrow night when my married friends with families have some free time. I can report more then. Having a lot of fun sailing through storms and the water in the game looks amazing.

    Yeah it almost looks real. I'm hoping to have a computer that can run it in the next few months. I'm sure there will be so much more added to it by then, too.

    Rebelution, myself, and two buddies high jacked another crews skull fortress treasure. We took our time getting to the island. By the time we reached it the skull cloud disappeared and another docked ship came into view.

    Sunk their ship and killed the remaining crew. They came back and chased us for the next 30 minutes while we cruised close enough to outposts so we could have a few guys drop off the treasure bit by bit.

    It was great because these guys were hell bent on catching us. They came close a few times but we kept jumping overboard and sneaking aboard their ship and dropping anchor. By the end they came crashing on to the outpost just to see that all their treasure was already sold off.

    Felt so wrong, but so good.
