Desperately needed P.v.E servers on sea of thieves.
Dear sea of thieves creators and sea of thieves community. I hope this petition is brought to light and inspires change to finally take place. We as gamers both on console and pc are desperately crying out asking for change. When you created sea of thieves you created a wonderful game full of adventure and excitement and overall joy for the player. Finally we had a pirate game worthy of our time and money! It was amazing and in many ways still is! However the time has come for a desperately needed change. Your wonderful game has become corrupted and in some ways taken over by players who don’t want to actually play the game but do nothing more than kill and sink other players for as little as haveing an emissary flag raised or just sailing the seas or even just sitting there fishing! This has become a serious problem in the game and it cries out for your attention. New players and experienced players alike are quitting and uninstalling this game due to these players. I myself can’t even go to one island just to do a mission without being attacked and killed for simply playing the game as originally intended. You have created some amazing missions of which we are unable to play or ever complete due to this very problem. The update to include the reaper emissary brought with it some amazing new features of which included an awesome new outfit and a new way to earn gold and rewards! However this update has also brought with it an excuse and reason for greifers, bullies and just downright mean players to be even more horrible on the waters. It now rewards them for being bullies on the water and just killing other people simply trying to play this amazing game! So I have taken it upon myself on behalf of a huge majority of the sea of thieves community to ask for and hopefully inspire change to finally come.
There is many ways these issues can be resolved for Instance actually haveing a easy to navigate way for people to report other people and truly have action occur. Every time I ask someone why they killed me and my crew and sunk our ship even if not flying an emissary flag or having any loot on our ship (which occurrs quite often) their response is always the same “you know it’s called sea of thieves right?”. Well yes yes it is but if you have nothing to steal or take from then it’s not thieving it’s just being mean and ruining the game for many players! The word thief does not mean be horrible or just a complete jerk, bully. In school we learn of something called honor amongst thieves which is a beautiful thing because it means even the ones who steal and take can still carry honor amidst their fellow brethren. You as the creators have even tried to implement this into your game with the pirates code which is awesome because it was a very real thing in the pirate era. However there is virtually no actions to take if someone just blatantly ignores this. And due to that many players have begun to abuse and misuse this game. As I stated new and experienced players alike are unable to even play this game in fear of other players and having literally hours upon hours of searching looting and completing missions become basically and utterly meaningless and a huge waste of time bc they get thrown into a lobby at random due to server merging and just mean players who want nothing more than to just fight, kill and sink others! It is in every way ruing this wonderful game and seriously frustrating many players alike. There is already enough action and things to keep a weathered eye out for such as krakens, Megalodon’s, various different random skeleton ships and skeleton alliance battles and now with the most recent update ghost ships. These are all such fun aspects to the game which can surprise and catch even the most experienced of players off guard! However constantly having to look over your shoulder and check the map just to make sure you don’t run into mean/bully players becomes tedious and tiring and takes all the joy out of the game! Especially when a good 90% of the time these players still find you! I cannot play the game even one day without being literally chased around the entire map for hours for simply just trying to sail even if I’m not carrying any loot on me whatsoever! This is ridiculous and in desperate need of a change! The best and easiest solution to this is the final creation of P.v.E servers. (P.v.E stands for player vs environment. - for all who read this and are curious as to its meaning) Ones where you can actually play solo if you don’t have anyone else or where you can invite your friends in and create a huge or any size alliance and actually be able to simply play the game without fear or worry of hours of time becoming in the most defining of ways utterly worthless. In addition these servers can’t have the ability to quest and loot gold and the other aspects of the game such as selling all the stuff you and your allies have looted and collected and leveling up in the emissary’s and gaining the ability to earn the title of pirates legend stripped away. Theses servers should be essentially the same as the current P.v.P servers that already exist with one difference, they need to be private lobbys. Ones where you control who you sail with and beside on the seas. So you can truly play as your own pirate and not one you’d forced to be as you fear every moment of being attacked and killed for no reason at all other than some random person wanting to just bully or attack. They make arena lobbyies for that very reason! But those lobbies don’t have the ability to loot or play the rest of the game leading those players to play like that in regular lobbies and take them over being big bullies on the water. The open crew choice should be P.v.P servers and the closed crew option should be P.v.E servers. As the creators you should care how the community for the game you have created feels on the matter and strive to make the best most enjoyable game possible! It’s clear you have put a lot of time and hard work into this game and continue to do so with your new content and updates. But all of that is being misused and corrupted in many ways. For example the alliances, the alliances are an amazing idea as it gives players the ability to make huge crews with friends and new players alike offering advantages such as shared sales where everyone shares in the rewards and offers a way for strangers to become friends as they sail the seas together! But this to is being corrupted as there is no penelty for firing upon and sinking and alliance members ship and crew. It offers bully players to see where you are at all times and sink you over and over again just because they can! As many of my friends and even myself have said if need be and we have to pay to gain the ability for P.v.E servers we will! Although we shouldn’t have to because we already payed good money just to quit and uninstall a game! But nonetheless if that has to be the case we will, that is how desperately bad we are praying for these private servers! I know I’m not the only one who feels this way due to all of my friends wanting this same thing and when I look up the possibility of P.v.E servers be it on YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, and many more an easy 90-95% of the comments all ask for these servers giving many of the same reasons I have stated. Please don’t let the cries of your amazing community fall upon deaf ears. (Sorry I don’t mean to offend it’s just a saying and a fitting one due to how long the community has been asking for this with no action taken.) So please I ask of you as creators to change these things and bring forth P.v.E servers and gain back a huge lost crowd of your community! And I ask of you the community to please let this be seen, if you feel as I do please sign you name or gamer tag or anything you feel comfortable doing to show your support and hopefully gain enough backing to truly inspire this chance to take place! It’s time for this amazing game to be brought back to its former glory! Let’s show the creators that we love this game and want to play it so bad but are denied that ability to due to an over abundance of bully players taking over the servers. I thank you so much for taking the time to read this and hopefully show your support for this amazing game and it’s much needed change! Let’s get this out there and try to get as many signatures and as much support as we can! Again thank you so much for your time and I hope everyone that reads and or supports this has an absolutely wonderful and amazing day!
