With the launch of Sea of Thieves season six, a bunch of new features are being added to take players back to the ocean and scour the deep waters for treasure. However, with these new additions comes a serious loss, like Arena mode has been glitched with this major update.
In tribute to the death of Sea of Thieves’ ill-fated PvP mode, players have assembled in-game to submit the arena in typical Sea of Thieves style. This includes playing music, walking in a sad conga line, and spamming crying emojis. Some also started drinking, as is a standard of any good pirate wake.
On a video posted to the Sea of Thieves Reddit page, user ChaoticVic shows a large number of like-minded pioneers circling the arena lobby to celebrate great PvP activity later this year. . The comments below the video are filled with players recounting their time with the mode, waving goodbye to the arena and leaving anecdotes about their time playing it.
User Piotreck9t wrote “I also played a final match that ended 3 minutes before season 5 ended. I expected it to be sweaty but there was only one other ship in the galleon arena and that guy was solo, so yeah, if that’s the state of [the] minutes before the end of the arena, maybe Rare would have put it down. Will definitely miss it tho, now it’s back to hunt reapers.”
It was true that the arena had been lacking players until now. In the official blog post announcing the removal, executive producer Joe Neate wrote, “As we’ve shared before, only 2% of player time is spent on The Arena on a consistent basis. and this has never really changed.
We recognize that some of the criticism we may receive here is that we have not invested enough in The Arena to give it the best chance of success with Adventure’s continued growth. . The fact that as a new platform, The Arena has unfortunately never been popular enough to justify focusing our creative efforts there, beyond our initial effort tailor the experience to appeal to a wider audience. ”
This means that, as players depart happily into season six, being the top PvP players in the arena will have to focus their efforts on looting and looting on the high seas. So this is for you, the arena. You’re fine, if you’re a little hot-tempered.
