Do you love PvP action with friends in Sea of Thieves? Well, you might not like some of the changes implemented in Update 2.6.2 because the ferry time across crew sizes has been rebalanced.

For those who don’t know, pirates who die in Sea of Thieves will go to the Ferry of the Damned and wait a bit before a portal opens, leading them back to their ships.

In Update 2.6.2, the ferry time received some adjustments, which make it so that solo crews will only have to wait 15 seconds before the portal opens. However, once the crew sizes increase, the wait time increases as well; 19 seconds for two-pirate crews, 23 seconds for three-pirate crews, and 25 seconds for four-pirate crews. 

The changes made are good if you only play solo. However, this is definitely not good if you want to engage in PvP with three of your friends.
