Sea of Thieves is a game that had great potential with a brilliant concept. Unfortunately, it takes more than that to make a great game and Sea of Thieves would turn out to be one of the most boring video game experiences I have ever had.

Let's take that tag line: Create your own fun. That's something someone would tell you to describe how to get into a pen and paper rpg (D&D, Deathwatch, Rogue Trader, Edge of the Empire, etc.). But the difference is that in those pen and paper rpgs, you have a plethora of different stuff to do, you just have to either try to look for thing and throw your Game Master a bone, or step in and pretend that while trying to flirt with that peasant lass you learn that something has been killing her livestocks, or if you play a merchant crew in a sci-fi setting, you are a trying to avoid bankruptcy but the only way to get your cargo to the market in time is to gamble by going into that uncharted nebula full of aliens and pirates. So yes, you can have people create their own fun, but they need to have the tools to do it as well as being given the opportunities to do so. A game like SoT gives you all the opportunities you need, but doesn't give you any of the tools needed to really get creative because they aren't there. At the same time, a pen and paper rpg gives you all, and I mean all the tools you could dream to get creative, but if you have a bad Game Master that thinks he has come up with this amazing adventure and doesn't let the players explore or do anything that isn't approved or decided by him, then you simply don't get any opportunities to use those tools. Tools and opportunities, this is what game developers working on stuff like SoT need to get both right, not one or the other, but both those things into the very core of the game.

anticomuna Let’s see: We can loot the ships to get gold, and that’s something to talk about, sure. But what does the gold do? Nothing besides cosmetics.

They updated the game but it makes me mad that they didn’t release it with the arena and skeleton ships.

You can go around bashing the game saying it’s boring, But not everyone thinks so. I personally think it’s a very fun game to play. Even though there’s no real progression, for me it’s about getting other players with you, and working together to get gold, and sink other ships. Also, it’s more about encountering other ships than taking loot from A to B. Almost every player encounter is different.

I believe you already did this, but you should really revisit sea of thieves. I'll admit firsthand that launch sea of thieves was incredibly dull and repetitive but it's exponentially better than at launch. There's new forts, a story, 2 new factions, puzzle vaults, 2 whole new map sections, optional ways you can increase the risk and reward for a better payout, and much more.

Okay, I see where you're coming from. Sea of Thieves will get boring. But that's the thing.It isn't meant to be grinded, or played for 3 hours in one sitting. Your supposed to play every once in a while , jump on with friends, do a quest or two, get the money, and share some great times. But making a pirate game is hard. Why do you think there are so few? Anyone, in conclusion, Sea of Thieves is a fun game, but only for an hour at a time.

You absolutely can have cosmetic only progression. Play the game to have fun, not for progression. If you're only playing the game for the in game rewards, you probably aren't really having fun.

There is one correct way to play Sea of Thieves: Play it as a 3-man open-world PvP game. If you can't find someone to shoot, do the open world events. If there are no fun world events up, do treasure chest voyages. Playing the game like this is IMMENSELY fun (200h and counting), and retained those of us who played Guns of Icarus / Artemis / PULSAR / Blackwake or other ship-to-ship games.

Getting pirate legend in this game was pointes only thing i got was some skins so i could spend my money and some more stupid quests. The devs said it right you only have fun when you make your own fun playing with my buddys chasing other people who stole our stuff the satisfaction of screwing over other players was the best part of this game. I can say i have a good 200-300 hrs on this game. story was okish but its not even the best part

As a pretty seasoned Sea of Thieves player myself, everything you said about this game is correct. Even two years later, with Rare releasing monthly updates - the game is still a snooze fest. They have added new ways to explore and find new treasure, and the Tall Tales (which is the story mode) are pretty cool - but at the end of the day it's still the exact same game play loop as you mentioned in the video. Even now they haven't changed what you can spend your hard earned gold on. Cosmetics? Man I'd love a brand new weapon that I could only buy for one million gold, that would make the countless hours I have sunk into this game worth it. Tall Tales are the story at this point, but there is nothing you can unlock that's worthwhile, besides cosmetics of course. You know I wish this game was good, it's a gorgeous game and the community is full of nice people, it could've one of the best games of the decade. It just sucks I hope that maybe they can change the grind from fetch quests to something that it more fulfilling or even add in some more powerful weapons - who knows..

Whoa yall ovi don’t do pvp coz I’ve non stop been playing these game since launch and yes there hasn’t been much at the beginning but now, you have new boats new loot more adventure etc etc etc, maybe before judging actually try out the ACTUAL game and every thing about it, I bet you just did a few gold hoarder adventures maybe order of souls as well but left because you left and never even tried any pvp or maybe you did and got destroyed and rage quit so next time give the game a chance and find some friends on discord or the looking for group on Microsoft
