    I had no idea what I was doing for the first 20 minutes. And then starting sailing rather aimlessly in the hope of finding another ship to attack. No sign of one? Why are there no other ships about?
    See, every once in a while we get someone trying the game once and complaining about not seeing any other ship. Meanwhile people playing regularly know how much of an issue griefing is and how not empty the world actually is.
    Is attacking another ship discouraged?

    It is if it's my ship

    And if your ship is destroyed don't you just respawn with another ship?

    I'd still say the world is very empty. Most of the time I don't see other ships and it's rare to have much interaction with one.

    But when you do it's all kinds of infuriating because you may as well have been something else for the previous 2 hours.

    And you lose all your treasure (if any) that's onboard.

    @TheHammerite you do it if that's what you fancy, just pointing out that for many players PvP is too prominent but in your case you're complaining you don't see anyone. It's all the luck of the draw with the servers you get, just wait until you spend 2 hours completing a voyage only for your loot to be stolen by a Galleon :)

    I wonder how many of those players have merely used their Game Pass trial, but nonetheless, it seems like they at least managed to hit a good note here.
  • Deleted user 28 March 2018 15:29:59
    I'm using my 14 day games pass trial. If I do eventually buy it, it will be when it's 19.99 in tesco. Having to pay for xbox live is annoying as I just don't use it ever since becoming bored with gta online.

    Aaron Greenberg tweeted that the sale numbers don't include Game Pass.

    Can you play it in a sort of PvE way instead of PvP?

    They don't state sales numbers, do they? The article talks about players not purchases.

    @quadfather It's all blended, you have PvP whether you want it or not.

    Nope but seeing as MS aren't boasting game pass numbers my guess is it's sold very well. MS don't usually give out sales figures

    We have no idea what itís sold, just that itís their highest selling new IP. What are the others?

    2 million players is nice but that is including Game Passers.

    Wasn't being serious ;)

    But yeah it's always been rare for MS to release software numbers.

    Not played this for a few days, have they upped the motion blur on this up to 11 or is it just me (x)

    Actually I think it's just me pushing it checked the tearing has improved, and it certainly has.

    The brig system is very annoying. Needs to be adjusted.

    Man this game is repetitive and is quite shallow in content.


    /plays for 8 hours


    ;)
  • Deleted user 29 March 2018 06:25:11
    It is shallow but remains fun. Although I've only had it a day.

    If they did tell numbers, you'd put a negative spin on that anyway...lol. We know you're not fond of the game so it seems whenever someone says they enjoy it, you're quick to tell them why they shouldn't. ;)

    I was playing with 3 randoms last night, 3 of us were working well but the 4th person kept on dropping the anchor & stopping us in our tracks! We voted to put him in the brig but he didn't learn his lesson & was put in the brig a second time.

    We stopped at an Island to do a quest with him still in the brig, we must've crashed into the island as the next minute the Galleon sunk with that poor soul still in the brig! :lol:

    I do like it, I just want more to do. The core co-op nature is a lot of fun, it's everything around it that needs some work.
    Keep trying though.

    Rather helpfully, since the debacle of the Game Pass issue earlier in the week, SoT will no longer install on my PC at all.... 4 attempts at 19GB and each time it craps out AT THE VERY END with a 0x80070005 error.

    Other items are updating and Snake Pass installed. Just this frickin' game that seems to be knackered.

    First install problem since rejoining PC game some 18 months back. Bollocks.
