Man, what if there was a parrot that repeated back what other people said but in that faster-parrot voice.
Some key quotes:
> "No loot boxes. No loot crates," Neate confirmed.
>Rare insisted the premium shop will sell nothing that affects player power or progression. Also, you'll always know what you're buying, hence no loot boxes.
>To that end, the first addition to the Sea of Thieves premium shop will be virtual pets, which you can buy directly (individually). These pets work like other items in the game: they're physical objects that can be held not just by the owner, but by other players.
I really hope they add some animals that don't really make sense for a pirate to have. I'd be totally down to buy a red panda or an otter or something.
>No loot boxes. No loot crates
Loot barrels/chests/bottles/dead mermaid corpses confirmed.
If we don't get a red squirrel with a blue hoodie, we riot.
If i can buy an abusive parrot they can have all the money.
>Won't be able to buy items that impact power or progression.
From what I've seen of the beta it's because there are no items that impact power or progression.
If this allows them to add free content instead of paid DLC I am all up for it. Really want this game to be good, been waiting for it for a long time.
So we have finally reached the point where *"monitized, but in a way that doesn't affect progression"* is a selling point
