Hey there good folk at Giantbomb, I've skimmed the AC4 threads but couldn't find a thread regarding UPlay friends for PC players.

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in being UPlay friends for the social benefits in-game.
I've noticed the best source of income would be the social Treasure Fleets, as long as they are high in numbers (lots of friends discovering these for each other) you can rake in 10k a pop. And they die REAL easy.

For a completionist like myself, money is very hard to come by so all friends are welcome on UPlay! You can search for NoxiousNL on UPlay and add me. [I think that's how UPlay works, haven't messed with it a whole lot...]

@bombedyermom: That's weird I'm getting nothing at all.

Edit: apparently social events are being super buggy and a lot of people are not getting them at all.

@baillie: I believe it's console specific, but you should be able to find a similar thread for your console pretty easily.

So other than getting a fire barrel for each "speed ally", is there any other benefit to this? I haven't seemed to notice friends' fleet ships manifesting in my main game like I thought they would.
