    @Pithen_ @NayfePacewell @JoeNeate1 @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @BradenBeattie I wish it just wasn't a problem. Other games in the past had this issue and they fixed it because it was unfair. (Halo 2 with the plasma pistol and battle rifle combo)

    Dear @SeaOfThieves please don't fix the drunken skelly ships that sometimes beach themselves. It's hilarious. We've all been there, flesh or not.

    @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves I love Sea of Thieves and have been playing since launch. Since the end of summer my game has had pretty frequent crash problems. Sometimes it crashes mid-game but it almost always fails to start. For 40 minutes the game crashed while loading a server.

    Once it was sufficiently thick it was no problem at all to lose them. Which felt great after being chased for the better part of an hour. :) #PirateLegend #BeMorePirate #SeaOfThieves

    @SeaOfThieves I’m not gonna lie.. I really miss that old feel of just hopping in the beta or scale test servers and getting that error.. I really miss that a lot (you might see this as a joke but I’m being serious) I miss seeing it as that game that had so much more to do..

    @SeaOfThieves During this Issue our Galleon turned in 50k worth of loot at 6am est and we did not earn any Reputation or Gold. We Finished an entire Athena's Devil's Roar Voyage. it took over 3hours. When I logged in this morning I only had 10k gold and no Rep. Gamertag EndlesVengence

    @SeaOfThieves Don't know if you are aware of an issue with the achievement for 700 skeleton captains defeated not unlocking at 700, I'm guessing it's because the in game commendation is for 1000

    Lastly, on the PC the words of the messages are so blurry I can't read them. I don't know if it'd be better on another monitor, but this is the only thing I've ever had an issue with (same monitor we edit video on). @SeaOfThieves

    @SeaOfThieves Hello, since the Shrouded Spoils update I keep having trouble with the game crashing to XBox home on my XBox One X. The crash is always preceded by a buzzing audio glitch about a minute or two before crashing.

    @MRriNICKulous @DustyFlapdragon @Bad_Dps @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support @Xbox @XboxSupport Bad grammar or not, I'm almost certain Xbox enforcement staff can read through it without issue. I would love to see his face when he eventually gets perma banned. It's only a matter of time.

    @SeaOfThieves Still no fix for the Chic hair, my character still have a gigantic dent in her chest, still missing shirts for the new clothing sets and you still haven't readded the swords and figureheads you removed because colorblind people told you to... Still very disappointed in you guys.

    @SeaOfThieves I would adjust the shrouded ghost meg i personally am on day 5 of no sighting.....the fog should spawn on the map more and not on the edges halfway in the red sea having a extremely large amount of lag and glitches just some feedback food for thought love the game

  • MillsTheHunter
    🦇 Mills (@MillsTheHunter) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Please do something to balance the game. Right now it favours those who can play 10 hours/day. Will be almost done a skull fort and then have 1 or 2 crews come in and take it over. Argument to just "get better" is not good enough. The balance is broken.

    @liverpoolgem18 @murray_fm @PolskaKing1 @SeaOfThieves @internalerror86 @JoeNeate1 @BIGsheep You can’t do private servers and then allow for commendations or achievements since ones in private servers would be WAY easier to get. I’ve said it before, the threat in the game isn’t the AI characters, it’s the other pirates. Removing them would be an error.

    @liverpoolgem18 @1Chenzo @murray_fm @SeaOfThieves @internalerror86 @JoeNeate1 @BIGsheep Solo slooping is near impossible these days. Especially if you try a fort. I'm 1 for 5 in that respect. The only way to fix this is re-adjusting the server merge rate or reducing ship encounters. Or make fort skull clouds visible from a certain range.
