    A draw would have been fairer but it's so much sweeter to win when it turns Rafa into a frothing, bitter mess. I can't abide the man. Good to see Diogo Jota playing so much better. 2 goals in a week will have done him the world of good, but we need to stop playing Traore up top because he's got worse control than Protocol Penguin on the Brexit thread.

    I had to post this - WHAT a tackle this is by Ryan Bennett.
  3. Had no luck at all yesterday trying to find a decent crew - I must have tried about 10 times but every single time I was crewed with utter fuckwits. One of the times, we couldn't even get 2 of them to vote on a voyage because they decided to jump around the deck before sitting on the plank. At the dock. FFS, just vote for the fucking voyage and help out. What's the point of playing any game if you're not going to actually do anything? So I'd had enough and did some solo merchants missions instead in a sloop. And that's where I had fun. I was about to log out having cashed everything in (5 golden striped pigs gives you a lot of gold!) when another sloop with 2 pirates on it pulled up at the outpost and proceeded to wreck my boat before docking themselves. They knew I was still alive somewhere as the mermaid appeared, but I sneakily 'slept' in the grass in sight of to the Gold Hoarders tent..... The last thing I had left to sell was a gunpowder barrel. Mwahahaha. So I placed the barrel right next to the tent, but out of sight before I 'fell asleep' to stay hidden. Sure enough, about 5 minutes later they arrived with a Chest of Sorrows and a Captain's Chest. They ran up to the tent and just before they could cash the chests in, I shot the barrel. Thanks very much - 2000G is fair compensation for sinking my boat when I was already annoyed with the shitty open crews from earlier.

    Yeah they're good but nothing groundbreaking live. Glastonbury 2005 was a good set but I was really hoping for a new album because everything they've done in the studio has been fantastic.

    Lose to Huddersfield and Cardiff and then beat Chelsea. Football makes Brexit look sensible at times. Chuffed for Diogo Jota - his first Premier League goal.
  6. I actually managed to cash in every single chest and skull - I got the mermaid to my ship which was now anchored miles away, found a rowboat, sailed all the way back to that outpost, put all the loot onto the rowboat, got back on the sloop, sailed to the outpost, but then the meg attacked again, sunk my ship so I rowed the rowboat to the outpost and cashed in all the loot. I have no idea how I managed to keep just one of the chests, let alone the whole lot. I didn't see a soul throughout the whole tedious unloading process! If anyone would have seen me, they'd have had the easiest gold it's possible to make.
  7. Ahhh what a lovely relaxing solo voyage, stocking my sloop with a load of treasure after a very generous gold hoarder voyage. I didn't see any unfriendly pirates - just a couple in a sloop who said hello when they were passing. Very nice of them. After several hours of play, I decided to call it a night and headed to the outpost. So after a completely tranquil evening with not so much as bad weather, I was very nearly there when I noticed a skelly ship appear to my right. Then this happened. Fuck you, Rare. Fuck. You. My ship was shot and bitten to fuck. Look how bloody close to the outpost I was!!

    Yeah, he's actually getting them to play football. The difference between the 2 managers is massive, and I think Smith was pretty much the best appointment you could have made. I like him - it was always good to watch his Brentford sides.

    Cardiff v Wolves last night "Fucks sake. That's fucking amateur. Basics, man. Fuck this, I'm off for a shit"
  11. I'm off out too but back later. I'll log on - pissed or not, I'm sure we can get through a voyage or 2!
  12. I'll be on tonight. So let's find these fuckers and sink them!
  13. No pets yet either! I think one of the biggest issues when it launched was when will they update stuff? Will they change things? What sort of content will be included? The updates have been regular and some of them have been extremely good. The more you play, the more you notice things and realise that there's potential to add something here - lots of empty shop buildings for example. I also read back on this thread when the game was released and a common theme was 'will this keep me coming back x number of months down the line?' The answer for me is absolutely - yes! Even the buy voyage - select voyage - fetch treasure - sail back - sell routine. I'm still loving it!
  14. https://www.trueachievements.com/n35422/if-you-still-think-sea-of-thieves-has-no-content-youre-not-paying-attention I really like this article - it shows just how different the game is compared to the pretty basic Day 1 release. And I agree with it. This thread is very quiet nowadays, and I'm sure plenty of people who posted around the time it was released have played Sea of Thieves and felt it wasn't for them. Which is fine of course, it won't be for everyone. Or other games have come along. But I do think that anyone who stopped playing in those early days because there wasn't enough content should revisit the seas and discover for themselves how much more variety there is after the numerous improvements Rare have made. I think this is a VERY unique game. It's biggest fault IMO is that when you can't find any other decent players yet really fancy a few voyages, it's frustrating. But if you want a bit of solo treasure hunting, it can be so therapeutic. When you team up and all kinds of shit happens to you, I think it's a feeling that's completely unparalleled anywhere else in gaming. I've never known time pass so quickly when SoT is at it's very best. Sea of Thieves is without a doubt a very different game to what I was expecting when I first saw the previews. It's completely hooked me and I intend to keep going until I hit Pirate Legend status. And there's no questions whatsoever that once I'm there, I'll want to keep going. Rare are going to keep improving it, and even if they didn't, there are so many tools and features already in the seven seas that make experiences on this game so rewarding.

    Ha - hoping for a good game tonight. We shouldn't (please god!) see another poor display like Sunday and hopefully we'll recover and perform the way we did at Arsenal. We could really do with a win TBH - I wonder if Nuno and Warnock will have a nice friendly hug at full time, no matter what the score...?
