I’m not into many games that have PvP elements. Sea of Thieves is a little different because you will most certainly get into battles. It’s the mechanics of the game that make the PvP terrible.
Don’t get get me wrong, the PvP ship battles are fantastic. It’s the person vs person PvP that sucks. Everyone just runs and jumps around, constantly jumping with blunderbusses, scoped rifles, and sword attacks. Just a terrible PvP combat system. If you die, you respawn on your ship where you get camped.
