SOLO SLOOP - AN IDEA
For the past 3 months, I have been into solo sloop in #seaofthieves and most other pirate feels it lucrative to destroy a Solo sloop and take away everything. It was quite frustrating at the beginning and finally, I made my mind to fight against any ship and tried to find a way to gain an advantage in naval combat. My cons: 1. I was so afraid to board an enemy ship leaving my ship behind as it might hit a hard rock and sink or the enemy puncture my ships with cannonballs and take it down 2. Getting thrown off the ship from a blunderbombs was an easy way for enemies to outplay me. 3. I can't do world events except for flame heart and Skelly fleet fight (forsake the loot of one ship as I can't get them all on time) 4. tucks on my ship who wait till I get near an outpost so "kill me and take it all" So, in order to overcome those weaknesses, I started to set sail in open areas without rocks and put my wheels straight so it doesn't hit on any object. Fine, I can overcome the 1st cons a little bit. Not a perfect solution I started to fire cannons in 3 shot volley then empty pockets of cannonballs so enemy can't kill me easily with cannon shot or blunderbomb me out of my ship. It worked as intended and it saves me on a lot of occasions. I can't help on the world events, whatever the world event is, I see a tucker trying to get into my ship and sabotage my world event fun. Fine, kissed goodbye to it. For normal tucker, I answer them with my cutlass. A swipe in common tucking spot got rid of them. But still, PvP is not perfect. Suggest how you guys handle PvP and sink the enemy ship! Note: Don't suggest "TheAbsolutePixel Rule 0"

to be honest I don't think sea of thieves is fun to play alone in general. My suggestion would be, if you really want a party that talks, go to the discord server from SoT and find a sloop voice chat. I agree its very frustrating but best experience is playing with friends / a party rather than playing alone.

After all those frustrations of trying to find a crewmate, I decided to play solo sloop. Experienced people want to run Athena while most people looking for groups on SoT discord server are totally new. That's why I post regular LFG here to meet new players! So far found a few people.
