Let me start off by saying that I am in love with this game and have been since beta. The sailing, the constant threat of pvp, the open world feeling, it was everything I wanted in a game. Beta was bare, but I didn’t care much because of how fun the foundation was.
Then release came and I realized it was just the beta with all 3 factions enabled. I didn’t mind, I was disappointed, but I had faith updates would bring things to do and rare promised they would be soon. Plus, I had pirate legend to look forward to!
Then came the first pirate legends, and I realized that pirate legend was just 2 fancy outfits and quests that were just what we’d been doing this whole time, but all at once. Suddenly, I didn’t want to hit legend much anymore, but I didn’t mind because I was still having fun and that gave me an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the ride instead of grinding.
Then came hungering deep, I was so hyped because new content! I found a hearty crew, and we ventured off. My hype was slowly killed as I sailed to find journals and then defeated meg in less than an hour and then…. that was it. The speaking trumpet added another mechanic, but it didn’t give us more to do. My buddy was in military training while it happened and he came back excited to see what hungering deep added and found… nothing. Eventually they added meg as a random encounter, but it wasn’t exciting. We could sail pass them and miss them entirely and when we did decide “fu*k this” and anchored to fight one, we killed it and then got… nothing. My buddy decided the game wasn’t for him shortly after that and I started to wonder too. I would never relive the excitement of that first meg fight because it simply didn’t exist now.
Then came the bilge rat adventures, and I got my hopes up again. Skeleton thrones… wait what? Okay I go sit on them and then get some currency to buy… clothes I didn’t want, gold I didn’t need, or rep I didn’t care about. I didn’t want to bother for another 8 hours finding the other 9 thrones, so I logged out and waited for next weekly. Gunpowder skellies were awesome! They changed how we fought skellies which was… something I was tired of doing anyway. Cool, got some commendations for doing OoS quests and logged off again when I realized I was tired of grinding order of souls. Then came sunken curse! Yes, this must be a lead up to the next expansion! Except… all you do is PvE some statues and then get nothing except doubloons I didn’t care about. My buddy tried it out with me again and after we killed our first statue, he went “that’s all?” and logged off.
So far, every new content addition has been time limited and barely added tangible content to the game. To add on top of that… after the event is over, there’s no incentive to do them if you took your time or missed it! I don’t wanna fight a meg I don’t get anything for killing and I can easily sail away from. I don’t want to sit on a throne and get nothing. I don’t want to search for statues that do nothing.
Where is the content? Where are new ways to search for gold hoarders chests? Where are new boss types and new mission types for order of souls? Where are new animal or cargo types for merchant quests? New items to turn in? New ways to interact with enemy ships? New areas to explore? New athenas quests that aren’t just the other 3 combined?
I know that the speaking trumpet and flag types helped add tangible ways to interact with other crews but… who cares? I’m still doing the same voyages, I’m still just grinding, I’m still bored of doing fetch quests.
Like c’mon, I can’t even go revisit the hungering deep quest because it exists now only as a random encounter that you can just sail past.
I’m getting bored of the game because it still feels like it did in beta.
