I think raising the flag of a trading company when solo might be a mistake.

I raised it as soon as I joined the game, then set off on a voyage for Gold. On Smuggler's Cove, I immediately ran into an Ashen Captain, who dropped a new quest. I found some tattered parchment, which also gave me a new quest. Then a second Ashen Captain appeared as I delivered the chest from the original quest. I followed the first Ashen quest to get an Ashen Chest, and on the way found an Ashen Captain's Chest. By this point, I'm a grade 2 emissary. I was then following the next quest, not realising that I was now a viable target for others, and spent quite some time trying to find the shaded library of the east.

Since I'd parked on the east side of the island, I see a Galleon heading my way. Someone had already jumped out despite being a bit of a distance away and the cannons were already firing. Quickly I'd jumped on my ship and tried heading off, but that just played right into their hands. The one who had jumped off was now on my ship, and as I tried repairing the mast which had been destroyed, I heard the anchor being dropped. That person then killed me, and had no doubt reported to the others my current cargo. Just as I was about to head back to the land of the living, the game crashed.

I really pushed my luck with that entire session. There was an outpost immediately south of my position I could have gone to offload as soon as I had those Ashen chests, but no... As usual, I felt nothing could go wrong.

Helpful video!

It's a double gold/reputation weekend, so I'm jumping in. Just done the maiden voyage, and already I can imagine what a nightmare it would be to try and do ship to ship battles as a solo player.

If you’re lucky you should be ok, most people should leave you alone.

Played a few hours and just came across one guy. I’d stopped to sell 3 crates of cargo for a merchant quest, and came back to my ship to find he’d taken one crate and raised the anchor. I didn’t see a ship and he just jumped off into the sea and disappeared.

Might try playing with randoms today.
