I think I'm putting this game to rest for the next month. Hyped for the 20th of March announcements.
I've found the merchandise store to take a VERY long time to update / send you anything other than the order confirmation. It took around 2 months for the Tales and Athena's Fortune books to be delivered when I ordered them. (UK based if that matters)
I never even got an order confirmation email which is..a little worrying. I've got a reference number though so I may get in touch with them soon. They say on their website they aim to dispatch 2 - 3 days after ordering, clearly a lie!
More.Saw this on /v/ and never heard or seen it before so i assume its gonna be part of the arena update?
Holes in ships apparently have different sizes now depending on how many times youre hit so i guess theyre just doing an overhaul for ship damage
People have been watching Summit. He swims for ages to sneak on ships.solo sailing and heading south from mermaids hideaway i see a galleon sailing to the SE after a skelly fort. they saw me and made a bee line for me, so i quickly dropped anchor with the wheel locked to one direction to whip the ship around to sail back north and around mermaids hideaway. they are chasing but as i hoped they are sailing to cut me off as if i'm racing to golden sands outpost. as soon as our line of sight is broken i flip another u-turn heading back south, into the wind, AND FOG. cool, i'm free.
i sail way past discovery ridge, thinking i'll hit up shark bait cove which will hopefully put me out of their path. but once out of the fog i see they've resumed going after the skull fort. its quite a ways away, but i change plans and sail north to plunder island for a quick riddle. on the island i'm continuously checking on them. still parked at the fort.
i bang out the riddle, dig up my chest, and hear cannon fire. the island is shooting at someone? fuck! I run back to my ship and its sailing away. the island is shooting at it! i hitch a mermaid into not one, but two, waiting pirates swords.
how? there were no boats, no row boats. would they really have swam that entire way? me friend was complaining about a similar incident the other day, is there a new exploit?
They couldve kept following you. All you need to swim from one island to the next is five bananas and five EoR shots, which you can replenish at islands. Plus if you keep hopping islands youll probably find a rowboat you can ditch a safe distance away when youre in range to finally sneak onboard
it sure took people some time to realize how viable it is, I've been pulling off that shit almost since day one. Only time it wasn't viable was when sharks got spawn increased for little while
I'm really excited for it. I love SoT PvP but on those days when I don't feel like grinding athenas running around looking for PvP can be very time consuming. Being able to jump in and find other people looking for a fight in shorter burst sounds awesome.
"Are they flying the Jolly Roger because they want to kill or because it looks cool?" is too real lol. Every time we encounter the reapers mark we have the discussion of "Are they here for pvp, late comers to the commendation, or are they new and just picked it because it looks cool and dont actually know what it means?"
lil ingame rulesets/sports like this and stuff like skullball i hope eventually get worked into the arena mode as alternate gametypes because this stuff looks fun but i will probably never play them because of the people/work needed in setting it up
