Private Servers[edit | edit source]

Like Twitch Rivals, Sea of Champions was hosted on private servers. Sea of Champions itself is run on a ‘make-shift’ private server provided by RARE. This has been set up to force player clients to play against only your opponents. Captains are given Sea of Champions profiles to use in the match to allow their teams to join only other Sea of Champion profiles in the Arena. These profiles were:

- SoC Goldhoarder - Gullible Gambit

Results[edit | edit source]

Feedback[edit | edit source]

The ping experienced by almost all players was negatively received throughout the tournament by participants and viewers. Players were consistently lagging back into positions, falling off ships, unable to grab items or efficiently combat other teams. As a consequence, players such as FoxDie were visibly frustrated throughout the event and suggest this should have been cancelled to deal with the issues, while other players such as Doed claimed this would be their last Sea of Champions.

The community watching the event expressed frustration as the commentators were often describing play well after the on screen play has happened. The differences between players stream delays also made the event confusing, as time would often jump several minutes forwards or backwards depending on the player the official SoC channel was observing.

Chromagon explained that "the server region is populated based on the majority region of the Captain accounts that setup the private match. Three NA East should theoretically make it an NA East server. As we saw today, there appears to be additional discrepancies happening that most certainly did not present themselves during our test matches. We have collected the data and feedback and will be talking with Rare about how to resolve these issues".

Despite the rules stating "Exploits that might allow multiple or single guns to be fired quicker than the developers intend", the double X reload exploit was allowed in the same way that the double dig or sword cancelling was allowed. Several players have been accused of having macro assisted exploits, which Chromagon will be investigating.
