Of course you can, but with the thousands of different outcomes the game can produce it all comes down to you. But maybe I can try and help a little. That's where this video comes in. I will give you some tips on the "what" and "how"... we cover a lot of things.

I've found that going to small islands and killing the Asher guardians and selling the skulls is easy and fast money for solo playing. I usually always find a Asher guardian on a small island

I'm not saying don't practice in adventure because not all the tactics you learn in arena would work in adventure and vice versa, but arena can and does help you learn pvp better so if you can find a good crew than definitely practice there as well as in adventure

I used a nuke on these people that rammed my team's galleon without thinking. Immediately regreted it because it blew up our ship, taking down our emisary flag and everything. I got too savy with the power and saw us getting attacked

The thing is, Arena is just full of a ton of absolute SWEATS that do nothing but PVP and just continue to spawn kill your for the whole game

1:22 I advise doing open crews, while galleons might seem more helpful, sloops are a good starter ship, and since you are probably going to solo a lot, there's also the fact that afk farmers are much less apparent

if you really want to see why more people is better, get a buddy and try to 2man a gallion... all you can do is go forwards and backwards and combat is a death wish

I learned how to play through solo slooping for around 150 hours. Now when i join crews i find myself geeting annoyed when people over twice my hours miss even super basic things and make their crews do 80% of the work 🙃

If im on a galleon i shouldnt be doing all the steering, plotting, looting and sail mangement. While i have 1 person whos convinced they need to find a tuck ship asap, another is afk arguing with their mother in the background, and the last is fishing 24/7. Even when i make lobbies for very specific "gold emissary" or "reaper emissary" in discord. I end up having to spend an hour filtering through people. Like if everyone does 25% of the work. It becomes a very easy 400K+ run while sipping seagrams

Just spent 8 hours joining bad crew after bad crew. Afk's, sabotage trolls, and mostly people just not being productive. Made about 5k gold in all. One of the crews even ignored a red mermaid that was like 50 feet from where the boat was parked. Told them many times, they wouldn't do anything. There was also a carafe lying on the beach again about 50 feet from the boat. I picked it up but they departed despite me telling them I was coming on aboard with the treasure. I mean wtf. Oh but I'm sure they they were happy with a few seafearer and castaway chests. The frickin' red jewel would've been worth more than the haul... Can you solo? Yes you can, and you should.

From the moment I started this game, I played solo. I did not realize that I should’ve played with others in my crew. But for new players I recommend playing with a crew because you can learn alot from helping them and watching them.

Can you solo sea of thieves? Yes you can. Just as World of Warcraft or Ark Survivor Evolved. You can, but you are your own worst enemy if you do.

Actually Shores of Gold isn't bad at all Solo. Sure it takes a while, but you know you won't have anyone trying to fuck with you the entire couple hours. Just make sure you spawn closer to the east side of the map.

This game would be playable if the matchmaking was balanced , but since it is ok for Rare to put me solo sloop new player against multiple groups of 2-3 to 4 people on brig or galleons ... I think their game deserves to die at this point since by the looks of it that's what they want otherwise this shouldn't've been a problem in the first place. I've seen games where they put you against someone who's much more experienced than you in the game by far but at least its a 1v1 , but I've never seen a game where they put you (alone) against entire teams who are also much more experienced than u in the game. That is just retarded. Some people are even getting mad when they find a solo hacker player , but they never ask themselves uhm why would he hack? uhm maybe because we are doing 4v1 against him and trying to ruin his game and this is his way of punishing us and the bad matchmaking uhmm. Nah hes just so bad that he needs to hack the game. Lmao fucking retard I hope this game gets as many cheaters as possible that's what they get for developing a game and then not caring shit about it.

0Bennyman 25 days ago
I don't get the whole stacking up on lots of stuff, never had any use in it, I would probably stop playing if every time I started the game up or took a short break I had to spend 20 minutes stacking up a tonne of stuff. I don't entirely care if I get sunk so maybe that's just me even though I've probably only been sunk by players about 2 times and by skeleton ships about 4 times because while doing Wild Rose Rare decided to have 2 skeletons ships patrolling together so I stood no chance with them both shooting cannons that stopped me from supplying and stopped me from using my cannons while in between unloading into my ship lol. But yeah also with Tall Tales they have checkpoints now so doing them is beyond Easy as a Solo, you literally cannot fail them lol which is annoying because as a new-ish player (I've played on and off since launch using game pass and mainly just did merchant and gold runs and am now addicted to the Steam version) this is my first time actually delving into them and it removes any kind of fun sailing because you know that if you get sunk you can just re-load the tall tale and get the stuff back without any penalty, there should be maybe a halfway checkpoint but that's it. Instead they have a checkpoint every single time you do something which is dumb.

10:05 - well, i was pretty unlucky in the arena, and was left out alone v full crews, or got a m8 who DID NOT shoot cannons, when he had the best shots avaible i ever saw (easly 20+ hits up close to side and front with no real threat other than a boarder), and when i actually was alone, i didnt go for the objective, i just fought as aggresive, as possible. i was shit with cannons, especially on the move, and mid to long range ones... well, that has changed for the better (funny story tho, i kinda didnt believe i would hit that, but i shot a skeleton gally from pretty far away, and i didnt think i would hit... well guess which solo slooper got sunk by a skeleton galleon combined with a mermaid glitch... (didn't show up at all)... yea... i sunk with a lv 40 bounty voyage and 2 skelly sloops worth of loot cuz i didnt miss my shot...)
