Rare Rolls Back Sea of Thieves Death Tax, Looking at Ways to Stop Griefing

Sea Of Thieves: World Map For Animal Spawns, Forts And Outposts Location

The new system would take gold away from players upon death, which is something that did not go down well with the community. Others still complained that in-game gold was already hard to obtain without grinding.

We'll update this once Sea of Thieves is back up and running again for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.

Ocean Springs city Easter egg hunt 'biggest one yet'
Fans of the all-time beloved anime Doraemon can head to Uptown Mall and have a jolly good time egg hunting. Children charge into the field newly sewn with plastic eggs at Crossroads Church on Sunday March 25, 2018.

After a lot of negative feedback on the death tax Rare made a decision to not implement it after all, as announced in a post on their official site. "Letting everyone know we've heard the feedback and the proposed "Death Cost" in #SeaOfThieves is, well, dead", Neate wrote. "Rates are dependent on the cause of death, so the more avoidable the death, the less patience the Captain will have when we enable this feature!" This can cause some people to be little bit reckless in how they play the game, attacking anyone they come across instead of playing the game in a more reserved manner. Rare clarified in an update that it "never meant to charge players for [player-vs-player] related deaths, as we understand the negative impact this would have on player experience". We messed up with the messaging around this, and it's now gone. "Thanks for the honest feedback & discussion on this", Neate said in a tweet. All of the items on offer are prohibitively expensive and losing gold just for dying would really hurt. New players are going to see the biggest impact. That page has an unusually terse message stating that the issue is being worked on, and the official Sea of Thieves Twitter account also states as much: "Our team are now investigating an issue affecting Game Pass players and are working to resolve it as soon as possible".
