Hello. This is a thread for the hunters of the social stuff.

Anyone who wants to join friends please write down youre Black Flag Nick and search for White Whales, Chests or Convois, once youve found one show it to the others.

And thanks to you all for the help! Getting fed up trying to find these things on my own!

Thanks guys, got some real convoy action going now, good job all, and thanks for all those who sped up the Kenway's fleet missions too. I have .5 million reals on one save but not so many on the others. :)


Adding Cheguevara19/

Well will do the update stopped the game from working when it did before, which is ironic. ;)

Calrid
01-16-2014, 02:00 AM
ok well tried to add you Che but there is no cheguevara19 but there are only 1975 and so on no 19, are you sure you are on PC.

Nice work though all, we have a pretty large friends list going on Kudos to the original poster. :)

Incidentally I am now richer than Creousus but if you do have time when on line Kenway's fleet, if people could do those missions, it'll help those who need the cash. And thanks to all who helped me all to get rich earlier. :)

hobobozo, basically only need the social events to get full sync, also on multiplayer fairly often

Calrid
01-16-2014, 04:22 PM
Sure SpawnQ just search me out too if I forget busy atm, type calrid into search on the shift+f2 screen/friends.


We are 35% on the community achievement, would be nice if people can butcher their way through few naval forts and farms. :)

ETA: woah nice work guys we're now to 62%, incidentally if you are near the end of the game there's a bit where the whole of Havana becomes a restricted area, well worth running around like a berzerker killing every guard you come across just to make the minimum quick if nothing else. :)

Start at the fort and work your way around, you'll pick up loads of kills. Don't start the mission though if you want to get 100%. :)

It is been already said , you do not need friends to have social events

Calrid
01-18-2014, 09:03 PM
Yes we know Kmarko but since I have done all the social events in a week on 2 saves, I think it helps. And you do need at least one friend to get the challenges... :P

Guys I am going to be on line fairly infrequently for the next few days. My suggestion is SHIFT + F2 > Friends and then find anyone on this thread, pretty much all of them are mutual friends by now: just type the name in the find friends box and click, and wait 'til they are online, send a few requests to them and others if they are not online et voila. :)

Is anybody else having the issue where social events aren't populating the map? When I look in the start menu it says there is a royal convoy and whit whale available but none of them are on my map.

I have the stuck Royal Convoy. I saw where a friend shared a White Whale but its no where on the map.

Calrid
01-21-2014, 11:45 AM
Yeah same here especially white whales. The chests are hidden generally in the minimap so that is normal.

Yeah, in fact I just got a message about a white whale. There is no white whale to be seen though. It happened a couple of times when I was playing Freedom Cry as well. The whole social event thing has been one giant bug fest since day 4. I don't think I've seen a royal convoy or even a notice about one since November.

Calrid
01-21-2014, 04:03 PM
yeah they turn up eventually even so guys, you just have to be patient, I think some are there and you just ran out of time, so the message system is out of step. On the other hand it's a good one to report as a bug. I would but I don't have the time. Good work on the community challenge all 100% in less than 48 hours nice. I'll be done with this game soon enough but am just getting 100% so around and if anyone has any questions feel free to tell me in game and I will do my best to answer. I am hardly an expert, but then at this point no one is. :)

If you are rich enough you can buy white whale skins at general stores at a price but I suspect you already know that, it's an option as you wont complete any challenges you can't complete with white whales alone anyway and it's an easy way to get the white whale skins total you need for the whale hunters outfit.

Hi everyone! This is my first post and, unfortunately, i'm a convicted single player and now, for the first time in my entire life, i have to sucumb to a social event. This game is one of the best games i've ever played and i want beat it 100%. I'm stucked on the social royal convoy. All the others social events were found. So, i ask you, please, add me as friend! Thanks!!! And good hunt on the caribbean sea!

looking for convoys and need one social chest .this is my first post. 97% 2nd time around. have never found a royal convoy. need all the friends I can get.
happy hunting everybody.

Welcome miltoninm and ssrader. :)

Well as said guys shift+F2 then type in any of the names on here, I'll friend anyone, I am a social red light district pedestrian so. :)

I think the friend social on PC is now at around 25 or so at least so it is getting quite easy to do social stuff. Happy to help out as I said before send me a message if you need to know where something is or anything really, not the greatest player out there, but not the worst. I am in the top 10 of most feared Pirates, which should tell you not that I am any good, but just how much I am on. 4 hours a day atm, well man has to work. :D

You don't need to advertise as long as you are friends with someone it'll pop up with the name of the player when you log in or as it happens. That said there is a new community challenge, sink them man o' wars lads.

I apparently am in the all time top 5 for community ladder, what the hell that means is anyone's guess. I
would go with, I have far too much free time on my hands personally but meh someone out there probably cares. :)

Top 10 bad *** pirates and top 100 bad *** assassins too, which means even less I expect. Polishes shiny chufty badge. And helps himself to a cookie.*

ETA: oh i get it I have sunk 10 ships on communiuty while most people werre at work/school/college having a real life etc, so I am top of the pops as far as world all time Grand Poobah of people with no life goes, et al and whatever. Well that's kinda cool. I dare someone to beat my score though which is I
suspect kinda the point. ;) :D

I like community because you actually feel good when it says some one has knocked you down to size because it's all good for all of us.
I'm no hippy no one loses person type but even I have to say I like Kibbutz style score boards. :)

weigh anchor fellas and heave ho for them poxy ships of the line, they's asking for a barrel full of brimstone and pure pirate guile, to wake the lubbers up. ;)

Calrid

Will do Avivt110 but if you want to cut out the middle man and don't want to wait for me to be on line or any of the more addicted players, just friend pretty much anyone on this thread atm with shift + F2 I routinely accept any request and I assume others are atm too,

Community challenge is already 62% done which is nice. Good work guys especially those in the top 10 community atm, I'm five with 42 man o' wars atm, so any more than that and you are really chugging through them ships of the line, The English are such bullies they dominate in power and it's a pleasure to take them out, who'd of though crippling the English would be so much fun for an English player. Kudos to all for helping out on the Kenway's fleet quests, I don't need the money any more but I am boosting people anyway. Although I have nearly a million Reals now. if anyone specifically wants some spare cash send me a message and I will try and be on at a compatible time, I'm back to work atm, but still have a deal of free time, bear in mind I am working on GMT though. :)

ETA: there's a social chest on Florida near the synch point, I
know they can be a bugger to track down, they are usually up for an hour or so, if you are on 24/01/14 from 2:10 GMT it is there.

i came across 1 of them at a small island just after finishing mission, 1 at tortuga or a similar place while robbing a warehouse, and one just a few hours ago messing around in kingston. so its compeletely rare.

Yeah your best bet is to do the various missions. A common chest appears in the major cities like Havana and Kingston, one is North of the Market usually but they are pretty variable. But essentially, it's really quite random and they are only around for a short time. So get out there and do some naval contracts etc is my advice, usually after a few hours of play you will stumble on one when you least expect it... it's not a bad idea to treasure hunt either, those places seem to spawn community chests quite regularly IMO/IME.

I posted one yesterday, if you do find one try and post on here with the time and place you found it, because they can be a bugger to find on the map even when you know they exist. :D

Use the map co-ords and date and time stamp it, and people should if they are around at least have a good chance of getting to it within the time limit.

Nice work on the community guys. I now only need 2 more community events on one save and 3 on the other. So cheers all. :D
