    Sea of Thieves - Pirates > Ninjas

    Well, had to give the thread title a little nod to the madness of the forum...

    Sea of Thieves - Pirates > Ninjas

    Also we decided to become evil after one too many Athena grinds took it's toll and the turn towards the dark side and PvP began... We rode up on a sloop doing a reaper run (we were on one ourselves so had out reaper flag up) and absolutely blasted snot out of it, sank it in seconds. They obviously didn't take too kindly to this and tracked us down again, after some superb sea battle action and multiple boarding attempts we took them down once more. Undeterred, they crept up while we were digging up chests on the aptly named shipwreck isle, delivering a barrel to the underside of our unattended galleon and getting sweet sweet revenge. We lost a couple of chests and due to us glowing like Chernobyl they found us one by one on the island and took us down. After that we managed to complete the reapers run and even though a Kraken took our ship, we had left @Boothjan on shipwreck with all the chests while went to the next to get the riddle done, including a few more chests he had found hidden by someone else and ended up with a pretty penny and very very tired as it was about 1:30am at this point. And so the next chapter begins, no longer concerned with grinding rep we will hone our PvP skills ready for Arena and the coming adventures with Tall Tales, and I cannot wait for the future of this game, I may as well burn all my others. Beware ye sailors for we shall sail together and whats yours shall become ours!

    Release Notes 1.4.5 Ahoy, pirates! Come and join us as we celebrate Sea of Thieves' first anniversary with a treasure trove of gifts for you all! While the full-sized Anniversary Update is coming a little further down the line, today's build brings some special time-limited items to mark one year since launch. Whether you've been sailing with us since day one or since yesterday, there's something special here to help you enjoy the festivities. This build isn't just full of celebratory goodies, though: there's a brand new set of Mercenary Voyages for the competitive and the adventurous alike, with some swish new rewards for their completion. You're also getting a whole bundle of other updates to enjoy including a newly populated Skeleton Fort, Xbox mouse and keyboard support, Xbox Chatpad support, new cosmetics available to grab with your gold and much more besides! MERCENARY VOYAGES Reaper's Run of Shipwreck Bay – Duke offers another treacherous Reaper's Run Voyage costing 5 Doubloons to challenge daring pirates. Any crew willing to accept this challenge must brave the waters surrounding Shipwreck Bay. With multiple crews all heading to the same location, prepare to do battle! Reaper's Mark Challenge – Looking for more of a challenge? Equip your Reaper's Mark flag before you set sail to warn rival crews of your presence. Pirates who complete the Reaper's Run of Shipwreck Bay with their Reaper's Mark raised high will unlock progress towards a Legendary Commendation (Legendary Reaper of Shipwreck Bay) and the title of The Shipwreck Reaper. Only for the most fearsome pirates! Mercenary Voyages of The Devil's Roar and Shores of Plenty – Visit Duke to also find two new regional Mercenary Voyages on offer. Both voyages cost 5 Doubloons and direct pirates to a specific region of the sea to complete. Additionally, The Devil's Roar voyage offers significantly greater rewards! The Gilded Mercenary Voyage of Legends – Pirate Legends should visit Duke to find the return of a popular voyage – the notorious 'Gilded Athena'. This voyage can only be taken once, so make it count, Legends! Shipwreck Reaper Sails, Mercenary Eye of Reach and Blunderbuss – Visit Duke for his next set of time-limited cosmetics! Completing the Legendary Reaper's Run of Shipwreck Bay unlocks the dreaded Shipwreck Reaper Sails, completing the Mercenary Voyage of The Devil's Roar unlocks the Mercenary Blunderbuss and completing the Mercenary Voyage of the Shores of Plenty unlocks the Mercenary Eye of Reach. Happy Anniversary! Year One Celebration Shop Items – To celebrate our first year, all players can purchase two exclusive cosmetics for a limited time. Pick up the Golden Sailor's Hat and Golden Sailor's Cannon for only 320 gold each from their respective Outpost shops. Get them before they're gone! Year One Player Reward – Thank you to everyone who joined us on our first year on the seas! To celebrate, all eligible players will have Captain Bones' Original Pirate Cutlass added to their armoury. Wield it with pride! Year One Pirate Legend Rewards – Congratulations to everyone who reached Pirate Legend in our first year on the seas! As a reward for this mighty effort, all Legends will be gifted a range of items: the Golden Legendary Tankard, Golden Legendary Hurdy-Gurdy, Golden Legendary Blunderbuss, Golden Legendary Sails, Golden Legendary Hull and Golden Legendary Figurehead! Players who reached Pirate Legend before March should already have access to their rewards when they log in on March 20th. For our newer Legends, we expect all rewards to be granted and available for players to use by March 22nd. Combat Balancing Improvements Wielding Weapons – The forced firing delay has been removed when wielding a gun after sprinting or undocking, allowing players to fire sooner. The forced firing delay when switching weapons still remains to prevent fast switching and firing between guns. Sword Switching – Players are now able to switch weapons/items at any point during a light sword attack. Players are still prevented from switching during a heavy sword attack. Updates Molten Sands Fortress – Molten Sands Fortress is now active! Face off against skeleton waves while dodging volcanic rocks and luring them onto geysers before raiding the vault for Ashen Rewards! Mercenary Cosmetics Bundle – The previously exclusive Mercenary cosmetic bundle is now available for purchase at Outposts across the world. Head to The Wilds, The Ancient Isles, The Shores of Plenty or The Devil's Roar to purchase the Mercenary clothing, equipment, Pistol and Cutlass from their respective Outpost stores. Xbox Mouse and Keyboard Support – Players on Xbox can now take full advantage of mouse and keyboard support on their favourite console! Xbox Chatpad Support – Players on Xbox can now use a Microsoft Chatpad to engage in text chat with other players. Press 'T' (Default) to initiate chat or rebind from your Settings menu. New Player Onboarding Improvements – The final onboarding pop-up informing players where to purchase their first voyage now persists on-screen until the onboarding is complete. Inactive Player Detection – Improved detection and disconnection of inactive players wherever they are in the world. Construction In Progress – Work appears to have begun around the Arches rock formation. What could they be building? Performance Improvements Voice chat should now be much more reliable when many players are speaking at the same time. Resolved a number of game stability issues. We are constantly reviewing the performance and stability of each release and providing performance optimisations and stability improvements. Fixed Issues Gameplay Resolved an issue preventing players from switching to an item/weapon after hitting an object with a sword swing. Players can emote while vomiting, and no longer see a stream of vomit coming from their head. Sound and Visual Resolved eyepiece clipping issues in some Eye of Reach scopes. Resolved missing geometry on Sovereign Figureheads. Resolved stretched texture on Majestic Sovereign Trousers. UI Prevented fog from changing the colour of UI banners. Environment Resolved issue preventing Fort skeletons from correctly spawning in Lost Gold Fort. Resolved issue where players could get stuck between trees on Roaring Sands. Resolved issue where players could get stuck in missing geometry on Smugglers' Bay. Known Issues Extended Black Screen on Loading – There is a chance that players may be held indefinitely on the black loading screen (with spinner) when returning from the Ferry. Item Quick Switch (PC Only) – After undocking from a ship interactable you will be unable to tap the Quest Radial or Item Radial to return to the previously wielded item. Mercenary Voyage Cargo Run – The Mercenary Voyage of the Shores of Plenty Cargo Run provides players with Devil’s Roar Cargo to deliver. The Voyage still directs players on a journey through the Shores of Plenty however the cargo is more vulnerable (and more rewarding) than intended. We are continuing to investigate this issue, but we have also identified a potential workaround if you are affected by this and in a crew. If you find yourself indefinitely stuck on the black loading screen, have your crew select your gamertag from the My Crew menu and 'Vote to Lock in the Brig'. After arriving in the brig you can then be released to bypass the black screen issue. Download and Installation Download size: Xbox One: 3.4GB Xbox One X: 5.1GB Windows 10: 5.1GB

    so gutted I was playing something else last night Happy One Year Anniversary to SoT! A year that has been an incredible journey of love laughter and adventure on the high seas, other games just don't compare any more I just want to go be stupid with my naval chums and laugh the night away Special Thanks to @Boothjan and our Viking crewmates, it's truly been an amazing time, Arrrr the feels!
  7. Lack of jolly co-operations is killing my enthusiasm. A world without SunBros just isnt right.
  8. I regularly swap between an original Xbox controller and new one (and an Elite) as I have machines in different rooms, it's never even occurred to me the bumpers are in any way different so I think calling them crap is somewhat of a leap Still massively prefer them all to the Dualshock 4 though.

    Honestly as it’s out of warranty I’d just have a go at what I posted about above, it’s quite straight forward and much cheaper than sending it to MS. i also did my OG PS4 yesterday, that’s gone from sounding like a drone to original quietness too, the PS4 was much more fiddly, the x is very neat and compact

    After weeks of my Scorpio dying regularly and sounding like a leaf blower I did somethign about it today and dismantled it and put new Thermal paste on, look at the bloody state of the old one, it was like lumpy dust, not paste at all and almost entirely squeezed out around the processor. Its a bit of a scary process but was well worth it.

    I know I'm getting on and my eyesight is pretty bad but christ, those font sizes are unreadable (55" TV too), I know you can bump up the subtitles etc but its really hard to read the pop up info boxes that you cant seem to resize
