  • InsomniNerd InsomniNerd (@InsomniNerd) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I'm still having problems with the last title. I've finished every commendation in the Tall Tales and it won't unlock it.

  • GReinvented Greatness Reinvented (@GReinvented) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Can you fix the Xbox stability issues please.

  • Autumn51599453 Autumn (@Autumn51599453) reported

    @SeaOfThieves we're having problems with the tall tells. Last night the Crest wouldn't appear. Today the key wouldn't. We've cancelled it twice to restart and it still doesnt want to work.

  • ASpectrumGamer Spectrum Gamer Family (@ASpectrumGamer) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @ClaudiaRevolter Oooh yay. It's been plaguing me but I reinstalled and went away but glad to see a fix.

  • MmmCherryade Jason (@MmmCherryade) reported

    @Dusty_923 @SeaOfThieves I hope so.. I play on pc and I crash almost every time I get into pvp, FPS drops massively too randomly.

  • CannonMunkii 🐒💨CannonMunkii💥 (@CannonMunkii) reported

    I have no problems with PvE only players, go play how you want. But don't complain when something you knew could happen, happens. #SeaOfThieves

  • hayden_charlie_ Charlie Hayden 💕 (@hayden_charlie_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @gamescom @Xbox Please fix the lavender beard I have stuff to do 😭

  • jabrock666 Jason atkinson (@jabrock666) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @gamescom Never seen a game with so many server problems...I love the game bud this is getting a joke now still can't get on the game

  • konfusedfae fae kennedy (@konfusedfae) reported

    @SapphicMica @SeaOfThieves Yep, this is precisely the problem me and my friends had last night. We specifically didn't engage because we had no interest.. and yet they still followed us for 2 hours and kept sinking our ship. We had nothing.

  • GTVortex2 GT Vortex (@GTVortex2) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @gamescom @Xbox servers down again

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @Brandon29562511 @SeaOfThieves Because the issues this game has should have been fixed by now. Returning every other patch is unacceptable. You accepting it as 'normal' allows them to be half assed

  • GregThomps1992 Greg Thompson (@GregThomps1992) reported

    @vyakraz @SeaOfThieves It is fun dude. Just caught it at a bad time. Give them a day to fix the servers. As they usually do. Also pro tip. Always watch the horizons. Dont let ships sneak up on you.

  • GregThomps1992 Greg Thompson (@GregThomps1992) reported

    @nik295 @SeaOfThieves I paid the full 60 and got more than my money's worth. And when micro transactions drop, I'll pay for that too. People can keep freaking out about server issues that very rarely happen. It sucks. Move on. Bunch of babies.


    @SeaOfThieves Still no fix on the Legacy beard


    @SeaOfThieves Fix the Beard!!!11!1

  • NDHPercussion Nicholas Hobbs (@NDHPercussion) reported

    @TrevladonS @SeaOfThieves Send in a ticket to support. I’ve had the same issues.

  • xMerkah Callum | Aero Merkah | #Dare #DTA (@xMerkah) reported

    @CluelessQuartz @SeaOfThieves Glad they fixing it that is honestly so annoying 🤣 random lag and frame drops big oof

  • CluelessQuartz Clueless❄️🍹 (@CluelessQuartz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @xMerkah explains the lag and loading in

  • MiAtCh84 MiAtCh (@MiAtCh84) reported

    I spent a good amount of time doing a voyage in #SeaOfThieves and of course a window popped up in Windows 10 and minimized the game which instantly causes the game to disconnect from the server UUGGHH! I was just meters from the last island I needed to visit to complete voyage😡!

  • stevent2002 Stevent2002 (@stevent2002) reported

    @Stoic_Outrider @SapphicMica @konfusedfae @SeaOfThieves Problem with this is they're still gonna keep chasing you. Sure you won't sink, but you still can't do anything whilst being chased. I don't think a passive option is a good idea though. Solo only servers on the other hand, is something I think the game needs

  • seang92911 beans (@seang92911) reported

    @SapphicMica @konfusedfae @SeaOfThieves that’s happened to me a lot and it sucks. this is definitely a problem.

  • mahoney_fingers Fingers Mahoney (@mahoney_fingers) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I dunno if any of the feedback has been positive AT ALL.....but here's some that MAY help. My wife's account ISN'T having problems. GT is Akotra 911, if you need it for lookup.

  • GizmoTwin LogicalGizmo (@GizmoTwin) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Issue is fixed for me! Back to the seas I go

  • Pithen_ 🐍Connor🐍 (@Pithen_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Bruh’s @Plecotuz and i played last night and both our Xbox’s turned off mid sail is this a known issue or is that on our end @SoT_Support

  • DevlinGiddings Devlin Giddings (@DevlinGiddings) reported

    @SeaOfThieves so when I try to do the story missions, I can't turn the pages of the books to find out where to go or what to do. Kind of makes it impossible to do these missions...I'm not sure if this is a known issue on xbox but I thought I'd make you aware...

  • Brandon29562511 Brandon (@Brandon29562511) reported from Stuart, Florida

    @DeadCarnival @SeaOfThieves Mate your so salty over a little error. Chill out! They barely ask for money and the past 5 updates have been free and amazing. I don’t understand why other people like you talk shit about this game. Surely there are some issues but it’s not just this game who had issues.

  • SchnarrHunter Hunter Schnarr (@SchnarrHunter) reported from North Perth, Ontario

    @Tim30948255 @SeaOfThieves the stream was online before the issues started occuring

  • SchnarrHunter Hunter Schnarr (@SchnarrHunter) reported from North Perth, Ontario

    @ggd1980 @SeaOfThieves many reasons, this time let's assume it was just connection issues. happens to most online games.

  • DyroneISTAKEN Dyrone (@DyroneISTAKEN) reported

    @Tals_Tales @SeaOfThieves You realize their game shouldn't be having this many issues if it is already fully released and costs $50. Just sayin

  • ActualTLG TheLivingGlitch (@ActualTLG) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I'm having an issue with logging into the game. At some point in my session, the gold/doubloons stopped tallying from my loot. I assumed it was a glitch and went onwards. I then logged out for the day, then logged back in to allow the gold/doubloons to... (1/3)

    @SnypeSin @SeaOfThieves It happens from time to time. Seems like the server issues are intermittent though as I’m watching the stream and they are online. Give them some time and they’ll get it sorted. 👍
