Realtalk one of the best streams in forever.

The last hour and a half is like a comedy of errors trying to get that GOD DAMN GLOWING CHEST to the right spot.

First there's a bad pirate, then other bad pirates, then skeleton pirates AND A SHARK, then A KRAKEN!??!?!?!?!?!?

This is the first thing i've ever watched that made me want to get this game.

This felt like one of those dreams where you are trying to do something or get someplace but things keep happening that distracting you so you can't ever get to the thing you were originally trying to get to. And then you spend half the day being irrationally mad at Brad and rowboats.

Luckily it's not a dream and I'm quite rationally entertained instead.

Brad refusing to avert a collision because Alex won't use nautical terminology is an instant Top 5 Giant Bomb moment for me. I can appreciate a man willing to die on such a hill (or rocky outcropping).

This was really entertaining, the last hour was pretty insane with the game seeming to want to stop the crew from returning with the chest. Alex was a bit of a downer at the beginning though.

Seems weird to be feeling like Rona made dreams come true, but this is how things are now, we live here. I feel weird. And very grateful.

This was a great a stream. It's always fun when Brad decides to be an agent of chaos. That being said, burn all the rowboats now and forever.

I must have completely missed when Alex left, but that fourth shipmate would've made a huge difference during the last half.

Can't wait for the next episode.

this was the most entertaining GB stream i've watched since Dan left.

how it slowly morphed from a test stream into a epic quest to turn a chest in was incredible. I can't believe how much emergent stuff happened to them and that they somehow managed to retain control of that reaper chest.

the mid-stream microtransaction break was also hilarious (even though I don't care for microtransactions in full priced games!)

more of this please

Hell yeah, son! I'm so goddamned glad you guys are picking Sea Beasts back up.

Sea of Thieves is such a good game once you get the hang of it. Hit my Athenas rep to 10 just tonight before watching this, and watching you guys is such an insane mixture of painful, hilarious, and exciting. I was yelling in horror and cheering for you guys watching you guys do loops around that boat.

If the next Best Of isn’t called “Crab Dab”, then what are we even doing here.

@frankiebeanz: It's why people love this game, and hate this game. I've been playing since beta and I love it for the very reason you describe. The game is a story generator and the way you win is to have a good story at the end. I'd say they won big time.

love this shit, such a great mindless game that lets the team's vibes shine through. Brad discovering just how fun this game is with the right people as the stream progressed was very charming, he's a really interesting personality to mix in with the east coasters

It gets pretty frustrating when Vinny, Abby, and Brad are all having fun and being silly which is great and having Alex aggressively agitated and trying to get them to stop.

It’s a video game stream, Alex. No one cares about watching ’proper’ sea of thieves play. Cmon man. Relax a little.

I was so sure that they would fail to turn in the Reaper’s Chest, but I never should have doubted the tenacity of the Sea Beasts!

So much better with a group of folk all whilling to play along and go with the flow, so glad there is a stream where they were able to get a crew that were able enjoy the organic flow and nature of this game.

Love it! Especially how they got murdered 5 times trying to retrieve that dumb chest and Brad still insists on hanging out in the danger zone to get the stupid rowboat lol.
