In week two of the Cursed Isles:

  • The Fools Stride attacks The Shores of Plenty between the 1st and 10th of the month, i.e. 08:00 - 12:00 and 20:00 - 24:00 UTC, each day.
  • The Treacherous Bounty attacks The Ancient Isles between the 11th and 20th of the month, i.e. 00:00 - 04:00 and 12:00 - 16:00 UTC, each day.
  • The Enslaving Chain attacks The Wilds between the 21st and 30th of the month, i.e. 04:00 - 08:00 and 16:00 - 20:00 UTC, each day.

The particularly observant pirate will note: Rare have not rotated the regions through the in-game dates, to accommodate players with limited play-time, in different parts of the world. Rather, what the sneaky buggers have done, is subtract an 8-hour offset from UTC time, before calculating in-game date and time, or (more likely) added 10 days to the in-game date, afterwards.

The effect for players around the world, trying to complete Cursed Isles commendations, is the same; but for third party time keepers - such as I have on my own web site - we now have to adjust to "SOT CI2" Time, i.e. "Sea of Thieves, Cursed Isles Week 2 Time".
