Jaryd ‘Sea of Thieves is missing during a stream with Rare and the development team’s response was very encouraging to say the least. 

The popular Call of Duty, GTA RP and more. 

However, during a broadcast on October 31 the former CS:GO player challenged members of the game to add some new features to encourage him, and others, to keep playing on the high seas. 

Summit was playing Sea of Thieves with the game’s Executive Producer, Joe Neate, and other members of the development team during the stream, before he was asked a big question.

RareSea of Thieves developers wanted to hear summit1g’s view on the game during the broadcast.

“If you had the choice, what’s one thing you would like to see come to Sea of Thieves?” one said, opening up the floor for the streamer to pick one treat he would like – fitting too, as it was Halloween. 

After taking a few moments to think of something, his first answer might have been a popular choice. “I want my double gun back!” he said, sparking laughter from the whole crew. Neate responded: “So, we have two things!”

For those who aren’t aware, the double gun feature would allow players to fire their gun right away after sprinting, without delay – meaning they could rotate between weapons too quickly. It has since been patched. 

On a more serious note, though, summit did have one idea that he believed would freshen up the game and keep things interesting for those who played it. 

RareSea of Thieves added a Shroudbreaker story mission previously, but does the game need more?

“Honestly I would love to see dailies and weeklies (challenges). I’ve been kind of talking about that for a million years” he said. “I really like the idea of a daily and weekly… Something. Something that gives a bit more to look forward to.”

Summit went on to suggest that while it should still be their focus to keep voyages interesting and have people play them, introducing challenges that can be completed on a daily and weekly basis could drive more interest – a successful strategy deployed by Epic Games for Fortnite

The Sea of Thieves team took the advice on board and even hinted at some more bonus content coming to the game in the near future. For Christmas, to be exact. 

Summit praised developers for the addition of the Shroudbreaker and Red Zone elements to the map, something they say we’ll be seeing more of in the near future. 

Joe responded: “We definitely have plans in the future to utilize that space more. So, I was chatting to Mike the other day actually and he’s got some super cool plans about how we use that and set people some cool and interesting challenges and stuff around that space in the world. 

In terms of daily challenges, Neate also confirmed that in the run-up to Christmas they are looking to add some new content that could be something like what summit is looking for.

Summit1g defends actions on Sea of Thieves after being labeled “toxic”

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has hit back at a report and claims that he was toxic on Sea of Thieves after breaking up servers where players wouldn’t interact in PvP. 

For the most part, playing Sea of Thieves can be a fun and enjoyable experience. You hop aboard a ship with a friend or two and sail the seas in hopes of completing quests picking up loot that you can sell on.

However, there are plenty of players who try to ruin that – typically through bombarding your ships with constant attacks. As a streamer, Summit has dealt with his fair share of this too, but he’s been able to fight back. 

Previously, he’s put people on blast on Twitter for not playing the game the right way, and while he hasn’t played Sea of Thieves for a while, he’s come under fire for his previous behavior. 

Microsoft StudiosSome players have big issues with the Sea of Thieves community.

Summit’s supposed “toxic” behavior was highlighted in a recent article after streamers quit the game due to harassment from other players. As he started up his October 4 stream, the leader of the 1G squad fired back – tearing into how some players aim to keep servers to themselves in a bid to farm coins. 

“Motherf**ker, you don’t talk about how they get those servers going in the first place – on Discord, through harassment themselves. They will stomp a ship out until they leave the game and get on their ship, you feel me? They don’t talk about all that stuff though,” he said, addressing the article. 

He turned his attention to the players who try to ruin these servers, adding: “Then, they sit on their servers where it’s supposed to be a give and take experience, pirates that take, and pirates that find, and it’s a big circle of we need each other but they sit in their circlejerk farms avoiding all aspects of fear.”

Summit added that playing like that is “not how the game should be played” so after those players took things to Discord in a bit to communicate and organize, he and his pals used “streamer benefits” to find out about them, as well ultimately infiltrating the servers.

He added that he’d never verbally abuse anyone in a racist or sexist way, but just trash-talked if someone else started on him.“We’d only talk s**t if they talk s**t, we’d only give it if they gave it,” Summit continued.  

“And if they’re giving it, they’d take it. They’re fine, they’re big boys, but what we’re talking about here is ridiculous. So, I just don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for one side to do it but not a bad thing for another side to do it.”

Plenty of his fans and Sea of Thieves players backed Summit’s cause to frustrate the players who keep servers to themselves in a bid to coin farm.

The game has undergone plenty of changes in recent months, but it’s unknown if he’ll return to it on a full-time basis as he once did.
