I trolled the SoT forums and found something odd. Anyone can join my ship's crew without my approval?
I'm glad there is a large purchase barrier to this game (Windows 10 or Xbox + Microsoft Store), or else I'd have already bought it rather than trolling forums. Griefing seems to be a problem both by getting crew members you don't want, and by being attacked by players who respawn too fast and too close after you just sank them.
Luckily, i don't need you to like me to enjoy video games. -nariusseldon.
In F2P I think it's more a case of the game's trying to play the player's. -laserit
