Next patch Feburary 6th

Any idea what the little surprise could be? A new tool, weapon, mechanic or something cosmetic for valentine's day?

And I'd like to add. Damn that Shrouded Ghost is one hard fucker to find.

I'd love more seasonal cosmetics! Was hoping for some Christmassy stuff over the holidays but I guess everyone made their own santa costumes anyway!

I think I know what the 'little surprise' is but obviously not allowed to spill the beans.

Yeah, no need to break NDA for stuff like this :D I wonder how I'm not in the pioneer program, I've been a insider since waaaaay back, did the Alpha's/Beta's.
 
Dang, I've been trying to get killed by lightning for a week now. Usually what'll happen is that I either take damage and don't die or i'll have to compete with other shit in the storm; the other day I had a shark chase me in and fight me in there plus two other sloops shooting at me.

I just want to die to get the last commendation/dubloons

Are there aimbots for SoT? Last night we ran into a couple of guys who did the doubleshot thing with a sniper/pistol combo. The thing was they hit every shot, all the time on us, no matter the circumstances. I got hit off a ship and he got me as I was falling mid-air. Another time I was in the water, and so was he, at a pretty long distance and he couldn't see me.. then his body turned and immediately, with no pause to aim shot and killed me. It all seemed very unnatural and everyone in my crew noticed the same behavior. Is there a way to report this? I don't see anything in-game.

We still out played them, despite constantly dying to this garbage. They contested our fort, we won it, took the key.. they waited over an hour for us to return and we outplayed them and turned everything in. Feels good!

You can report them thru the Xbox App (on PC) or through their profile (on console)

Apologies for going over old ground, but I'm not sure how to find out what I'm after.

Some mates and I played sea of thieves a bit near launch, and we might dive back in tonight...but I'm not sure what's new, and how we see/do the new stuff.

I've read about ai ships, forts, megalodons and a kraken?

Is there a way we can definitely find something new to do, or are all of these things random events that *might* happen to us?

If you hit start and go to 'commendations' and click on the 'Bilge Rats' section you'll see every event that there's been in the game since launch, all with a progress bar tied to the commendations (challenges, basically) for each event. I'd suggest maybe having a look through that and trying to tick off some commendations. More recent commendations will reward you with doubloons which are used to buy the time limited cosmetics whenever a new event is live (there isn't one on right now but that's a rare scenario being post Christmas).

Why not try the new cargo run merchant missions? They were added a little while back. While doing one of those you'll want to use a rowing boat probably (another new feature) so that your fabrics don't get wet. You'll definitely run into a skeleton ship. You'll either see one on the horizon (tattered sails, blue and green lights on it) or one will spawn from the depths while you're sailing. They'll drop good loot if you take one down. You can also enter a wave based battle with multiple skeleton ships if you're feeling good by following a cloud that looks like a pirate ship in the sky (will only appear if there's no Skull Fort active). You'll probably run into a Megaladon at some point during your travels. Try and kill it for some loot. You should also definitely go to the new region of the map (the Devil's Roar) because you definitely won't have seen that or it's volcanoes if you haven't played since launch.

theres an entire new region to the SE and you can frequently spot skeleton ships on the horizon (in clouds OR the ship itself). random encounters from krakens, megalodons, and even surfacing skeleton ships are also more frequent.

Also here's a list of everything new that's been added to Sea of Thieves chronologically. https://seaofnews.net/2018/11/30/whats-changed-in-sea-of-thieves/

omg so annoying, soloed a skeleton captain quest and got two skulls. Get jumped by skeleton ship instantly and get 3 goddamn dancing balls in a row - those things are stupidly long - and then spent the next 5 minutes desperately trying to keep my ship afloat while the outpost is like a 90 second sail away.

Then that weird thing happens where the compass goes nuts and the wheel locks in one direction (what does that??) and a storm hits but I had 3 holes and the boat was almost sinking so I couldn't do anything but patch and bail. Then I finally get the boat pointed at the outpost again but the skeleton ship has it's broadside at me again and I get.... back to back dancing balls. Fuck that noise, my ship is sinking so I grab one skull and jump for the long swim to land. So annoying lol

The wheel locking and the compass going nuts is because of the storm. It messes with your compass and the tide pulls you to one side thus the wheel locking.

This one is interesting. I can see the appeal of permanent stat based progression to grind towards but I do think it would have a negative affect to the game as a whole when 4 man Athena crews climb aboard a crew of new guys and not only have a knowledge advantage but stat advantage to. The nature of this kill anyone take anything game would make those advantages frustrating.

Temporary buffs are neat and I'm wondering if that's what the cooking system could be. Fishing, Pigs, Chicken, bananas and more fruit types could be used to concoct meals that give you small temporary buffs or something. I dunno.

Agreed, the game is amazing precisely because the only thing that differentiates a crew that has played 5 minutes and a crew that has played 100 hrs is their communication and teamwork rather than numbers on a stats page. I love the fact that a new crew can jump in on day one and beat players that have been playing for over a year provided they have the skill and teamwork necessary to do so.
