    @SeaOfThieves #Rarelt you guys need to seriously fix the game bugs. I just got kicked out while finishing the ship fight. Did the whole thing, kicked me during final ship sinking, loaded back in to a black screen and no character. Probably lost commendation for it.

    @MegaBadseed @SeaOfThieves Yeah my main problem is finding other ships to alliance with, takes me hours and when I finally build up an alliance people usually just sail off or leave. I also no longer have the time to be playing games for hours straight.

    @gamebasebot @eurogamer @SeaOfThieves @StateOfDecay You actually said Xbox one has no games. It has plenty of games, it's a fact. You can't say it has no exclusives because you claim you don't like any of them, stupid child. Oh and being able to play Xbox games on PC as part of the play anywhere service is a great feature.

    @SeaOfThieves For a game about buying cosmetics, you sure don't seem to care about keeping them properly fixed... Like, at all. There's so many clipping issues, misaligned items, and even see-through textures on a few things.

    @SeaOfThieves Hello mates! I had a great misfortune of having my computer broken during the 2nd week of Cursed Sails and so I couldn't defeat Fool's Stride and Treacherous Bounty. Will it be possible to still claim the commendations for these two after the campaign?

    @SeaOfThieves Any chance you could fix the whole not updating on windows 10 thing? It would be nice to be able to play the game again after updates and not have to spend hours trying to figure out what obscure trick MIGHT make it update this time.

    @SeaOfThieves Are they going to fix the commadations for the isles to the people who’ve done it many times? Or is this extended week our chance to do it again? Is this weeks event really staying up longer? Curious cause I’d also like to do next weeks that was coming.

    @SeaOfThieves I'm glad you fixed Ancient Isles, I waited until today before filing a ticket; however I had the same problem in The Wilds? Everyone had the same sails, alliance was closed so no accidental joins, completed the event... On two separate occasions... No commendation. Any idea?

    @DorkyDevGaming @PhoenixFrankie @SeaOfThieves Honestly, the toxicity of trolls has led me and many of my friends to look for better pastures. Props for rising above the norm. We tired of wasting hours on chests, or skelle ships, only to have the alliance broken in the final minutes, then sunk by honorless players.

  • omarlotrc_7
    Omar Omar (@omarlotrc_7) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support It occasionally happens where you can’t invite people when a friend leaves your game, because the game acts like the friend is still there and taking up that slot that should be open. If that makes sense. Is there gonna be a fix for this?

  • MRriNICKulous
    Nick (@MRriNICKulous) reported

    @RaginCajun928 @SeaOfThieves Sounds about right. There are still a few broken achievements it seems. You're not the only one I see with problems on forums. I really hope they plan on fixing these broken grindy achievements, if not I'll be done playing this game.

    @MsCaptainStrat @SeaOfThieves Yeah do something about being a pirate. People with these problems with being a pirate on a pirate based game ruin the game. We all lose loot and we all steal loot thats the life of a pirate.
