    @SeaOfThieves anyone else have the problem when sailing and you try to harpoon a barrel, the harpoon makes the actions of you succeeding in picking one up, but it brings back nothing when the harpoon retracts. #AskingForAFriend

  • chrishoulden86 Chris Houlden (@chrishoulden86) reported

    @SeaOfThieves your broken sword play is shocking

  • MrRegsy MrRegsy (@MrRegsy) reported

  • dafrd frd (@dafrd) reported

    @jimileitner @SeaOfThieves Thanks - Same issue...Crazy that they're not telling you to update the game in the error...So ******* dumb

  • TdGGaming2 TdG Gaming (@TdGGaming2) reported

    @kore_virus @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves Which is why we usually have no problem even though we are all console. You get that "I'd do this" mentality and assume they are going to do that as well. It comes with experience, same as any game.

  • Julien27703091 Julien (@Julien27703091) reported

    @KirsteyMae @ThomasPlatypus_ @SeaOfThieves Found the problem go to your Microsoft store and update the game it should be fine then

  • Seanaci ❄🎅🎄StreamMom Seanaci🎄🎅❄ (@Seanaci) reported

    True. Sad part is, if Rare took the time to fix bugs it would likely mean new updates wouldn't be out as often. And people would STILL complain. I'll take bugs and new content over no new content any day. @JoeNeate1 @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd

  • Grimace221 Nicholas Gerace (@Grimace221) reported

    @SQUIFFY_v2 @SeaOfThieves It would be boring without that threat there of others players being an issue. The actual PVE content is pretty easy when working together. A PVE mode would be pretty boring, outside earning achievements.

  • Grimace221 Nicholas Gerace (@Grimace221) reported

    @SQUIFFY_v2 @SeaOfThieves Hi early, I thought the same thing for a long time. And while there have been moments where I have been hijacked (sometimes I win, sometimes I lose) ultimately, I have not had many issues with completing quests. Also, the game was built to be a certain way.

  • Bilbertthegreat 🎄Jocular Jackson🎄 (@Bilbertthegreat) reported

    @qp_ghost_qp @SeaOfThieves no problem 😀

  • AyeofReach Aye of Reach (@AyeofReach) reported

    @MrHyperrion @SlooperSolo @Scylliax @Tart_Tee @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @JasonRCross We solve this problem by making gold actually useful. Then make having more loot on your ship give you a bonus when you sell.

  • Bilbertthegreat 🎄Jocular Jackson🎄 (@Bilbertthegreat) reported

    @qp_ghost_qp @SeaOfThieves they said there was an issue so they had to remove them

  • MegaEdu13 Eduardo Barros (@MegaEdu13) reported from São Vicente, São Paulo

    @Djmerck1 @IanGaston6 @Breaking70Bars @SeaOfThieves I've been very precise on what I'll do and what crew I want, and I had no problem with it. Before inviting anyone to my ship, I speak to them on voice group and see what are they about. If we fit, they are in, of not, just don't invite to your ship. I've found it simple enough.

    Long Beard error @SeaOfThieves HELP!!

  • littletorvol 𝕝𝕚𝕥𝕥𝕝𝕖𝕋𝕠𝕣𝕧𝕠𝕝 (@littletorvol) reported

    And this is why I've taken a hiatus from SOT. I can't keep defending and playing a game that won't fix the issues. #SeaOfThieves #fixthebugs #streamer #mixer

  • goncalmfp G-Pereirazyyyy (@goncalmfp) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Guys, for the 100th time. The lobbies in the arena are bugged. If a player joins in alone the others can't play unless he leaves. Please fix this. I'm spending more time on lobbies than actually playing.

    @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves please fix your game before it dies

  • JakeDomo Jake Domo (@JakeDomo) reported

    Nothing like loading into @SeaOfThieves and immediately getting killed and your ship sunk. @RareLtd fix your game.

  • mcmikey30 Michael Cromwell (@mcmikey30) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @ImSavier I can try, but in the end your team cannot fix an system E100 error code. SOT in the xbox insider app is what froze my xbox in a constant update......

  • AntelopeSteamy SteamyAntelope (@AntelopeSteamy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Please fix the ******* spawn kill problem...

  • TOrionRelicz Todd Tucker (@TOrionRelicz) reported

    @nina_michelle19 @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd Its definitely a beautiful experience, I was enjoying it tonight but had to cut it short... before the store closed. I kinda hoped maybe i’d be abld to return to the maiden voyage island at home offline, but my account login to my pc can’t pretend to be connected to xbox live.

  • TSoul19 SoulyGaming (@TSoul19) reported

    Sorry guys for not streaming these past couple days. Some issues concerning me and my family happened. So stuff had to change at work for the time being because of it! I’ve missed a #Destiny2 Update “Season of Dawn” yesterday and @SeaOfThieves update Today! “Festival of Giving”

  • xbl_Galuxii Flea (@xbl_Galuxii) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Just saying. I have loved this game and grinded it for a long time until I got pirate legend. But recently I have started playing again and realized these ANNOYING GAME PLAY PROBLEMS. 1. Can't do crap against a GALLEON with 4x the cannons. (Read replies)

  • Symlistic Symlistic (@Symlistic) reported

    @ShineTheRock @SeaOfThieves It should be fixed now. I had the same problem earlier.

  • InTheRuff_ InTheRuff (@InTheRuff_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Hey when I try to play Sea of Thieves I get an error "The Sea of Thieves Services are temporarily unavailable. Please try again.(Strawberrybeard)" I've restarted the game and still it is not working. I wanna see the new update!

  • ImSavier Savier (@ImSavier) reported

    @SeaOfThieves tried opening the game and it says i need xbox game pass when i have it, i also updated the game still not working, i tried another game pass game and it opens.

  • AssassinAJ05 AssassinAJ05 YT (@AssassinAJ05) reported

    @Anonyme963_ @_Crumbz_ @SeaOfThieves You do realize they have to make the update, install the update, fix any problems that may have been caused and then have to realize it to the platforms after it gets approved

  • namelessgal23 Heather Wright (@namelessgal23) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Still no equipment fix. 😔

  • CrinxCrono CronoCrinx (@CrinxCrono) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Just letting you guys know that the game is completely broken right now. Commendations not counting, lag and ping is insane, skeletons not spawning correctly, skeletons not fighting back, meg spawning in late. Just everything is broken.

  • zyxarz Elli (@zyxarz) reported

    @GroganJak @SeaOfThieves Same issue.

  • C007Moshe mosheC007 (@C007Moshe) reported

    @SeaOfThieves For anyone getting #strawberrybeard error: you need to update game! 8.59 GB! For PC, go into Microsoft store > click Sea of Thieves > click 3 dots on top right > click update!

  • pinkwkid pinkwkid (@pinkwkid) reported

    @EpicSugarPlum @SeaOfThieves Yeah the equipment glitch is something that they know about and already trying to fix and you know this. If you know how to fix it, let them know. They still fixed 40+ bugs and issues.

  • LT_Robinson25 LT Robinson25 (@LT_Robinson25) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Update American Gallon Arena servers broke still please invest in fixing load times for North American Servers. Update Holidays on SOT needs maintenance immediately might have been my server but no Flames major Lag spikes and bouncing ball row boats in the air.

  • Leo_ffical Leo (@Leo_ffical) reported

    @kore_virus @ThirstySeas @SeaOfThieves I have the same problem but i cant log in the sea of thieves website it gives me an error message. So i cant send a ticket.

  • craigums Craig Kaufman (@craigums) reported

    @SeaOfThieves "Resolved animation issues with certain body types when performing the jump sit emote." Thank you for fixing things so fast, but also... this makes me sad. My creepy sit was so much fun.

  • kore_virus Kore Virus (@kore_virus) reported

  • rederz13 rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

  • Zewez2 Zewez (@Zewez2) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I still cant manage to get in. The strawberry beard error keeps popping up

  • EpicSugarPlum 🎄EpicSugarPlum🎄 (@EpicSugarPlum) reported

    @pinkwkid @SeaOfThieves No fix for equipment glitch (while still having equipment dependent commendations) £70 of pirate emporium items which amount to little more than 2 sails, emotes and pet clothes. The weapons should have been sold through jim for completing the gift giving comms.

  • fakedfollower17 Festive Follower (@fakedfollower17) reported

    @Rep_Raptor98 @SeaOfThieves Rare had to pick between more content or a simple fix, they chose better. More content.

    @SeaOfThieves The PC version is up and running, they are having issues with the Xbox version.

  • waning_poetic Jeremy Weaver (@waning_poetic) reported

    @cptblackrambo @SeaOfThieves In addition to adding stuff they’re also updating the backend code to fix bugs and such. I believe they also run tests prior to opening it to the public so if something comes up post-update they have to take care of that first
