    Campaign to have a Ruby Splashtail statue replace the broken dead Kazooie statue. How about it @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @Trixster13 @ThirstySeas @BrysonTube @brysdales @JohnGamingNL @SeaOfThieves Aw man that’s gutting, but that’s the nature of the game isn’t it... you just stick back up & start again, everyone sinks at times. One of our crew kept crashing because of a power outage he didn’t know about haha

  • PhillHughesBoi Phill Hughes 🔜 Content (@PhillHughesBoi) reported

    @SeaOfThieves hey so uh, we just fought Greymarrow. for THE LAST WHOLE HOUR! that level of difficulty is outrageous! he would explode or summon more skeletons every 5-10 seconds without exception. that's too much. not even slightly fun. fix that stuff.

  • StormySeaDog StormySeaDog (@StormySeaDog) reported

    @seaofnews @JoeNeate1 @keeyaaaa @ChappersChapman @SeaOfThieves @TheAaronLeigh @KateBloomfield true but at same time this is the first time I have ever experienced it this bad after a update. Then after the maintenance they had experience stayed the same. Had no issues before this update. I found that it appears we seem to introduce new bugs and issues with each update

  • gnarvin_ gnarvin (@gnarvin_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves So if you're gonna add a chest that catches our ship on fire can you fix the chest getting stuck in ship bug, because this is super duper annoying to deal with.

  • pandapundit Lil Panda Lea (@pandapundit) reported

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves I’m having strawberrybeard issues for Insiders. Please help, I haven’t played this week yet.

  • Disable_Chicken Disable Chicken (@Disable_Chicken) reported

    Don't know if this was a glitch or not but it was extremely funny none the less. @SeaOfThieves #SeaOfThieves #BeMorePirate

  • Nick1342 nikolas suarez (@Nick1342) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Man the lag caused me so many deaths

  • Thor_von_Blitz Thor von Blitz (@Thor_von_Blitz) reported

    @PixxyDoll @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support @nina_michelle19, @DrBullhammer and i experienced the same glitch the other week. My watch was stuck on the 1st of the month. It was the longest day.

  • LivingForgiven7 Michelle Dierkes (@LivingForgiven7) reported

    @Vahchy @SeaOfThieves I figured it was a joke, since I'm pretty sure we've never come across you. Haha. I certainly hope private servers are coming! I don't have as big of an issue with people attacking once and taking stuff, it's when we've respawned with a new ship, and they're still after us.

  • Soulless_Wond3r 🐊🧢Bryce (@Soulless_Wond3r) reported

    @Gargomon251 @xN7117x @SeaOfThieves The mast catching fire isn’t an issue, just splash it. The point of putting it on the mast or the front is too have it not catch more than one spot on fire.

  • HealPleaseHeal Empower Healing (@HealPleaseHeal) reported

    @thechocmoojoo @SeaOfThieves Ya two server, and just bad lag on both.

  • Dallassavage09 Dallas Savage (@Dallassavage09) reported

    @LivingForgiven7 @SeaOfThieves What's funny about this I noticed it was mostly with PC players I had problems with. Since I could switch to xbox only, I've rarely and I mean rarely had problems. Also when I fight other xbox players it feel any more balanced.

  • LivingForgiven7 Michelle Dierkes (@LivingForgiven7) reported

    @KaiwenWae @SeaOfThieves Yes! Or, when someone says they're "friendly" and they crash into your ship and attack. Pretty sure that's the opposite of "friendly." And, the best response people have is " it's seas of THIEVES." I get it. It's just tiring and time consuming.

  • Kneedeep20051 Kneedeep2005 (@Kneedeep20051) reported

    @TdGGaming2 @SeaOfThieves Probably because all the lag people are waiting for the fix.

  • assholegrad Grad (@assholegrad) reported

    @Sith_Trooper66 @SeaOfThieves @neo_lethal While you’re at it: Fix hit registration

  • medicas86 Wayne julings (@medicas86) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Well I did come back to give the game another try and let's say it has not been enjoyable at all from crews kill camping you to a broken alliance system where people team up with you and then come on your boat all friendly then constantly camp kill you for no reason...

  • CaptForgttnfear CaptForgttnfear (@CaptForgttnfear) reported

    @DreadDoug @SeaOfThieves Not wrong...at that point they can just fix their ship and watch you waste everything you've got!

  • SNoddlez Spicy Noodlez (@SNoddlez) reported

    @magiciks @jaredeppss @SeaOfThieves Oh my god yes,they need,to fix this

  • StormySeaDog StormySeaDog (@StormySeaDog) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Please keep investigating the performance spikes and lag spikes!! On a good NOTE Today ping seems to be a little more stable in servers. #SeaOfThieves

  • mojkokusak Majo Kusák (@mojkokusak) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SeaOfThieves fix the beard errors which are after update!

  • Hitbotc Hitbotc (@Hitbotc) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Aye and I found this broken NPC running into walls. I was very confused.

  • gortholomew gortholomew (@gortholomew) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I finally got around to doing my 5 Shores of Gold runs but it says I only have 104/105 commendations even though I completed the requirements to unlock everything 🤨 I held off on doing this for months because I thought it'd be fixed by now and it wasn't on the known issues list.

  • IWrate Isaac Wrate (@IWrate) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Funny thing is this is a normal occurence every time an xbox player rolls up to a pc player lolol I got a pc just to see the difference and I load in 2-3x faster than an xbox player and theres no lag, nice to see the pc players having to see some lag for once ;-)

  • st00pid_n00b that darn n00b (@st00pid_n00b) reported

    @SeaOfThieves No not really these bits of lag that freeze my screen every 20 mins is getting really annoying. I'd hate to see what would happen trying to turn in/load up a skullforts worth of loot to have my screen freeze when someone is trying to attack us. Please fix soon!

  • Plecotuz Derrick, Merrick's son (@Plecotuz) reported

    @PcflWtrs @SeaOfThieves The servers will ******* crash haha 😂 good idea though

  • kyle_polhamus sharkbaitwhohah (@kyle_polhamus) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @BeardedGGaming The lag has been so bad this update.

  • JonnyChampagne2 Jonny Champagne (@JonnyChampagne2) reported

    @SeaOfThieves games broken me and my friends keep freezing and my hud was stuck on the screen forever really loved the game until now

  • NayfePacewell 💀☠ Capt. Nayfe Pacewell ☠💀 (@NayfePacewell) reported

    @PLRedWolf @SeaOfThieves They removed it from sloops and brigantines, for galleons it remained. But, the cannons beside the tentacle can reach it no problem, 5 or 6 cannons will shake it off in a pinch 👌

  • koalamanryan Ryan (@koalamanryan) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I’m not happy, me and my mate were on the Shores of Gold tall tale again, the server just decides to shut down losing all our progress. We try to rejoin multiple time’s to no avail. Can you fix this so it doesn’t happen to others. We were so close to finishing.

  • Falianne Fali (@Falianne) reported

    .@SeaOfThieves for Issues of connection with network we played, disconnected after ship did crazy thing, impossible to join the network again (Marblebeard)

  • TElvenking Sphen (@TElvenking) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Hopefully this will get rid of the Hazelnutbeard error-

  • MDBOAKTREE Oak Tree (@MDBOAKTREE) reported

    @Balistic_Chick @SeaOfThieves Well they’ve had issues today, so maybe this was a side effect

  • ScrotumShrek Shrek's Scrotum (@ScrotumShrek) reported

    @Befy21 @SeaOfThieves I would rather lose a Athena's for a patch then have to deal with the server issues

  • quentin_mille Dexter (@quentin_mille) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix your bugs before !!! Current freezing is not a DLC

  • Tyler29349 Tyler (@Tyler29349) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Dumbest update yet. Nobody asked for this yet you put it in anyways. Devils Roar is the worst. Fix your game! It can be so much better!!

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @DeadActionJones @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @ChappersChapman They are going to add private servers but it’s not going give rep or gold… It DOES suck when you’ve got a 5th (or more that wants to play though…) I’m not sure how they could fix that without there suddenly being 3 ship alliances in every server.

  • StooLaird92 Stoo (@StooLaird92) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Still having bad freezing issues. It actually seems worse than last night. Have raised a ticket.

  • Moonlight1The InTheMoonlight1 (@Moonlight1The) reported

    @PHANT0MXRAY @SaiyajinGoto @SeaOfThieves “They stay on top” and “fix constant bugs” lol not even, the devs fix bugs to get frustrating bugs to go along with it. Remember the equipment glitch that they were going to fix, took them about 3 monthly updates to fix, remember the hit reg that they were going to fix, still

  • Justmy2cents11 Justmy2cents (@Justmy2cents11) reported

    @SeaOfThieves You might have a problem with your commendation about lighting 1000 skeletons on fire. It’s only tracking 1 at a time no matter how many skeletons there are. Either it’s bugged or the description is completely wrong.

  • BranscobaerBHV Branscobaer _BHV (@BranscobaerBHV) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support Please take the update back or fix the geysers and volcanoes, because you don't feel like playing anymore. The skulls only spawn in the volcanic area. If you are alone with a sloop you have no chance to enjoy the game.

  • james84786265 james (@james84786265) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Ok I had that problems

  • Sekkosakk Henning 🔰 (@Sekkosakk) reported

    @Pithen_ @blakey_nz @SeaOfThieves Because some bugs doesn't show up until the game is released on live servers. A ton of people, me included tested the potion on Insider. I changed my character 4 times in about 3 weeks. I had zero issue with it on Insider.

  • TylerStein17 Tyler Stein (@TylerStein17) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Finnaly I still was sinking boat's even though my game was lagging every five seconds. I Did sink a couple of times though

  • CaptainSkandalf Skandalf (@CaptainSkandalf) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Could use more heads up on these server shutdowns. Like 2-3 hours advance, not 30 mins. And in-game on the main menu. Not everyone uses twitter daily or even monthly. Voyage failed just cause i didn't read twitter prior to sailing. Still good that issues are being fixed.

  • Befy21 ChimiV2 (@Befy21) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Thanks for fixing this issue but wtf, we are almost finished our Athena, not cool at all 😠

  • MookFresh Mook Fresh (@MookFresh) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Can you fix the crazy amount of GroomedBeard I have been getting. My Discord has lost so many boats to it since the patch!

  • TheORING89 The_o_ring (@TheORING89) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Thank god we don’t have to wait til the next monthly update for this fix

  • HeartlessMoesh A L E R T (@HeartlessMoesh) reported

    @SeaOfThieves This becomes an even bigger issue as I now have to re-equip all my weapons, equipment, and emotes each time. Instead of getting out on the seas, I spent the first 15 minutes of each session sorting my shit out, and then I close the game because it took a long time to do.

  • LostMusicfreak LostMusicfreak (@LostMusicfreak) reported

    Well, outside some internet issues causing problems with my stream, I would say that this was a successful test of my PC for gaming and streaming. Can't wait to stream some more #SeaOfThieves on #PC

  • Chris31583 notgoodatfantasy (@Chris31583) reported

    @SeaOfThieves spent 30 minutes with my crew of three to finally beat the new skull fort. Start sailing out with a full load of treasure only to be hit with the Kraken, Meg, and a ghost ship only to have our cannons to glitch so we couldn’t fire. Glad we wasted all that time.

  • Tenac1ousGrace Grace (@Tenac1ousGrace) reported

    @davidramon20 @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support @RareLtd It did it a lot to me yesterday but I didnt freeze once today. However I still get bad lag spikes if I go near an opponent ship/player or a ghost ship. I saw on discord though that they're working on it. Thank goodness! 🙌🏻

  • zdude_108 Zdude (@zdude_108) reported

    @NatashaMetcalf9 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves They haven't even reimbursed me yet and I filed for a ticket and did it twice with them. This makes me so mad because I got a pirate I like and I can't even go with it because they can't fix the problem. Irritating.

  • Arrogynt Randy.exe (@Arrogynt) reported

    @SeaOfThieves what is error code groomedbeard please help

  • Tenac1ousGrace Grace (@Tenac1ousGrace) reported

    Much less lag today on @SeaOfThieves. Now if I could just steer clear of the pvp trolls long enough to catch up on some Tomes. I don't mind PVP but the 1v4 spawn killing is a bit excessive. 🙄

  • ed_beringer Ed Beringer (@ed_beringer) reported

    @SeaOfThieves The lag has literally been unbearable, please fix it

  • CalkinsDeklan Deklan Calkins (@CalkinsDeklan) reported

    @SeaOfThieves there is massive lag spike on xbox don't know if it's just me.

  • ThodinCruelsea Thodin cruelsea (@ThodinCruelsea) reported

    @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @CaptainKyi Just comes up with can't process your payment but my info is correct and I have the money like I said but just won't let me. This problem may be just Microsoft being a pain but I really wanted my little pirate monkey and emotes little bit gutted haha
