Rare added a long awaited update this week that added the among other things the following features:
Lmao what a mess
Shit happens. It’ll get fixed soon enough.
This is after this update was already delayed by a week too. Private crews should have been there at launch and absolutely blows my mind a team of devs could come up with the solution they had at launch. This game has been such a disappointment, what a waste of potential IMO.
Underwater one is really good update and I can't wait for it to come back.
At this point I'm kinda worried for the upcoming 'big' content update patch that is supposed to come out this month.
Those have nothing to do with issues in this patch. But oh well.
Every game has a bad patch once in a while. Every. Game. To see this and assume it’s somehow indicative of a nonexistent larger problem at the studio is borderline idiotic.
Yeah, it sucks. But what can you do? Just sit tight and wait until it’s fixed.
I regret buying Chips Ahoy codes for this game.
Also yes private lobbies should have been in at launch.
How is that unrelated and how will that not make people drop the game?
Glad I haven't played in 24hrs, the cross play, scalability and online nature of this game would be a nightmare to get right I imagine
great game but
I was fire and flame, bought everything it had to offer, story books, art book, controller and now I haven't played it in a month.
This company is a mess, why are they still working there? Hundreds of people and all that they can do is develop an empty shell of a game in 4 years, create a hand full of new clothes in 4 weeks and broken features that they have to remove.
What the actual fuck are they doing all day? Specially the design part of that company? I know we had that topic a hundred times before, but like several people with a similar job on ERA already said, shouldn't they create and design stuff nonstop? And if, why aren't we getting at least 10 new cosmetic items in a week? What the heck are they doing all day in their 8 hours of daily work? Also the programmer.
A company where I really have the feeling that they are actually working 8 hours a day is EPIC, cause they deliver every single week with huge patches and cosmetic stuff every few days.
What a hopeless company.
And Fortnite is a completely different game, in a completely different genre, than Sea of Thieves. Just because they’re both multiplayer games does not mean that they’re inherently comparable.
an online game runs into some issues because of an update. The update is then removed to be worked on while not affecting the players.
Era: What a mess! no wonder people are leaving this game thats already dead!
They have had an update video like every week with updates coming like bi weekly. people need to chill. in 2 weeks time you will have a "medium" sized content drop in The Hungering Deep, a trailer, more updates on the this patch and those that like and enjoy the game will continue to enjoy and those that dont will continue to not enjoy it.
Bummer, the people who stuck with the game deserve better.
Whatever you want your weird goalposts to be you can't deny the game population is dropping, and will continue to do so unless they really do something drastic with this upcoming "medium sized" update.
Judging by the lack of content they have planned, it sounds as though most of the studio are moving on to a new project. I thought they could learn a thing or two from the Driveclub devs (and even Hello Games) but apparently not.
What's so weird about this? Is the first time this happens to a video game?
by that description, it seems some really bad coding was at play.
Don't try to generalize and pretend this place is a hivemind.
This game is such a missed opportunity... It could have been a wonderful experience with more interesting/surprising quests and mysterious locations. I seriously doubt if Sea of Thieves will recover from the huge player drop.
I mean if they don't want to make money, ok.
I would assume setting a required expectation for a future update is more of a goalpost than literally anything I’ve said. But oh well. You do you, man.
The beauty of this game is that it's a gamepass title. More people will sub to the service or take free trials when other games hit the service such as Forza, Halo, Crackdown 3 or soon SOD2.
Even if people do 'drop the game' it will still have a healthy player base.
There are bugs, they are being fixed. Unfortunate, but hardly a big deal at this point.
Haters who have never played the game trashing the lack of content, countered by apologists defending everything Rare does tooth and nail. Yep, it’s a Sea of Thieves thread.
sorry to the posters you can just ignore.
back on topic: Yarrr this be a mess up lads!
It's going to be a matter of too little, too late by the time everything is where it should have been at launch.
The game is bare bones at the moment (pardon the pun) but I can see myself putting in more time when the game is more fleshed out.
