Sea of Thieves

A Suggestion to Player Progression: Allow Us to Show Off Our Accomplishments

Sea of Thieves 4 - A Suggestion to Player Progression: Allow Us to Show Off Our Accomplishments

Sea of Thieves progression being limited to cosmetics is absolutely perfection and should never change. However, it does feel a little underwhelming at the end of some progression goal when there's not much to show for it. While it is great having a wide variety of cosmetics to simply buy with no strings attached, rocking the Ceremonial Admiral set after reaching level 50 Merchants is feels great, and every Pirate Legend can recall the joy of dawning the purple and gold garbs for the first time. Cosmetics like these are the best not necessarily because they look cool (even though they do), but because they represent your accomplishments. For the vast majority of goals the game gives you though, the reward is nothing more than a title that often goes unnoticed and you personally never get to see while playing.

With Sea of Thieves in such a great state after the Shrouded Spoils update, a shift of focus to more cosmetic rewards would be great. Now, we have seen in the past few updates (Cursed Sails, Forsaken Shores, Shrouded Spoils) that Rare is able to lock cosmetics behind commendation completion. So the basic of this post will be to suggest a cosmetic piece that can be unlocked by completing a commendation and used to show off your accomplishment.

NOTE: All unlocks require Tier 5 and must still be purchased with gold.

Note that these are just a suggestions for what each commendation can unlock. By all means, recommend better unlocks if you can. I tried to keep some parity between the factions. I also skipped over Athena's, which already does have some unlocks behind commendations, but not all commendations.

Alternatively, they could make it as simple as a sail or flag with the logo from the commendation pasted on it.

Having more real ways to show off our progress will result in meaningful cosmetics that will in turn make the progression feel more meaningful.
