Aww, Sea of Thieves’ latest update patches out the inadvertent spyglass dongs

going nowhere, going nowhere

It was a smidge delayed, and then down again, but it’ll happen eventually: Sea of Thieves is due back up with its 1.2.5 patch. It’s not really that exciting a patch, I’m gonna be honest, as it focuses on quality-of-life improvements to the barrel system, allows players to feed caged pigs (again), vows to keep doubloons around after events end, and gently tweaks some no-brainer UI bits.

Probably the biggest change is a bugfix for the game’s telescopes. As Eurogamer chronicled, prior to this patch the community was having itself a ball with a bug that overwrote the animations for holding a treasure chest and holding a spyglass, which effectively led to a week of players running around with erect spyglass dongs. Shenanigans ensued, but unfortunately the bug is spent now. “Fixed issue with telescope clipping,” the patch notes blithely say. My favorite part, I think, is the cover slide on the developer update this week.

I don’t normally read Sea of Thieves updates, but when I do, it’s for quality topics like this.

Yeah and they’re trying to say that was by accident? Perfect positioning, turned around backwards – there’s no way that was accidental. Someone took the time to position them perfectly.

Maybe it was a disgruntled employee, maybe it was someone who thinks it was a great funny joke, but it wasn’t by accident.

You didn’t let Eliot write this one? Is he being punished for some reason?

“INADVERTENT SPYGLASS DONGS”

BS. They were not inadvertent. They were *exactly* at the crotch, *and* turned around backwards to look more like a dong. Someone in the coding team did that on purpose, no matter if they are pretending it was by accident.

They weren’t positioned exactly like that accidentally. They’d be floating in the air and facing the other way, or clipping, etc, if it was by accident. Not placed perfectly to look like dongs.

Yep. It’s pretty clear what you’re expected to see looking through that spyglass.

That’s probably why Bree didn’t post the evidence picture. We’ll see how long mine lasts. Sorry not sorry. \(^O^)/
