  • busy_el Bus❤️Elephant (@busy_el) reported

    @Krotukk_gaming @SirioNDB @JoeNeate1 @SeaOfThieves Im not sure Joe Neate is the one you have to report this to. I guess you can just report to the support and they will forward to the related service

  • BrunodiazGaming Brunodiaz (@BrunodiazGaming) reported

    @JoeNeate1 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support Small thread of noticeable issues that you may, or may not have, recognized that need to be fixed to bring quality back to the game, immediately. A full on hot fix for these is needed. We had a ship sink tonight with water only in...

    @craigums @SeaOfThieves @Twitch @AbleGamers I hate he texture issues for Xbox atm

  • StoleYourAthena StoleYourAthena (@StoleYourAthena) reported

    The fact that you can’t brig a player on a sloop without both votes is a really big piss off. @SeaOfThieves please fix this, I just did a whole ashen athena will so scrub just sat around and went afk.

  • iw_miked Mike D (@iw_miked) reported

    Finally got @SeaOfThieves working again last night. DCOM errored immediately on starting. Online fixes didn't work. My fix: Uninstall the game (tried before but didn't work). this time I looked in game dir, saw "wem-UWP64.pak" wasn't removed. I removed it by hand and reinstalled.

    @Seaofthieves my friend logged onto the game and his pirate got deleted out of nowhere. Is there a way to fix this

    @SeaOfThieves Please fix yer ghost ships... sank 3 of them now and none of them had loot....

  • kbroosky Kyler Brooksby (@kbroosky) reported

    @SeaOfThieves you fix double gunning by RUINING combat completely, and still have not fixed the endless black screen issue. Your game is going to be relevant for MAYBE 2 more months unless you fix this somehow. Been playing since release and the game is dang near unplayable now.

  • Mercefulmerc Mercefulmerc (@Mercefulmerc) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Can we please hold the new outfit in stock for longer. I will not be playing until the next Update which will fix a great amount of "unbareable" game breaking mechanics at the moment. To start again with such short time left.... I shouldnt have to.

  • TheRagingPitbul E3-2019 HYPE! (@TheRagingPitbul) reported

    @SeaOfThieves your new update absolutely ruined the combat so bad. double gunning was the only issue but delaying the aim with every weapon and spreading the eye of reach hip fire aim just makes the game combat boring, sluggish and slow. Take it back to how it was because you're

  • oo_prentiss_oo Kat Burton (@oo_prentiss_oo) reported

    @Kelleth @SeaOfThieves Should have played in the beginning when there were absolutely no threats whatsoever. If people stop playing because they can’t beat a simple mechanic or easily outrun said simple mechanic there’s issues. They’ve already nerfed the game once, doesn’t need happening again.

  • oo_prentiss_oo Kat Burton (@oo_prentiss_oo) reported

    @Kelleth @SeaOfThieves Or people complaining need better strategy. I had issues when I started out, but I adapted my gameplay. I don’t think nerfing things makes any sense. Learn to adapt and use the game mechanics.

  • Kelleth Danish Crusader (@Kelleth) reported

    @oo_prentiss_oo @SeaOfThieves Yes of course, if you don't have issues with them, then that must mean nobody else does either. Just ignore all the people complaining about it. Yep, they are totally fine! /Sarcasm.

    @SeaOfThieves fix game combat feel like poo ty

  • Kramand Andrew Kramer (@Kramand) reported

    @darrenkerwin @CHellbeard @SeaOfThieves The problem was the instant double shot not the double gunning lol.

  • Kev_Logger KevLogger (@Kev_Logger) reported

    @SeaOfThieves, I can't log in to the Sea of ​​Thieves site anymore. Every time I try it comes "Known issues while logging in to the site". I bought the game and I can play it, but I can't log in anymore, please help me !

    Textures are still bad for Xbox users with ships masts and loading/rendering of textures. Games 4K looks dead. Please address issue @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support

    @SeaOfThieves F*** your shi* loading screen that takes (from the death screen) AGES!!! to load, so my boat sunk with 5 villainous and 3 captains chests, **** ya'll fix this and i want my shi* back for this BS

  • Malthael_AoD Ronan Bradford (@Malthael_AoD) reported

    @SeaOfThieves And now I'm stuck in the air because a team member killed a kraken tentacle and I got stuck. This game is still in beta. Almost a year and it is broken. I will send a recording of the dumbest thing ever

  • Makisartwitch Makisar (@Makisartwitch) reported

    @SeaOfThieves tried to join my friend, xbox app crashes, he joins 2 ppl on athena quest and I cant join, then my friend is in another lobby, he doesnt even show up as he is ingame, maybe fix this. Your groupsystem is the worst in any game

  • ThoracicToe ThoracicToe (@ThoracicToe) reported

    @SeaOfThieves When is the update coming out so we don’t have to play with PC players. My buddy and I are just selling our stuff at an outpost and get killed by Athena PC players. Really ******* annoying how they can jump and move so fast. Fix this shit we spent like 3 hours ffs!!

  • Sirial_RL Sirial (@Sirial_RL) reported

    @LukasQripT @SeaOfThieves yeah only the sniper riffle + pistol glitch or macro was too OP

  • FaizerTV 👀 Faizer 👀 (@FaizerTV) reported

    @SeaOfThieves stuck on opening crew ledger any idea how to fix this please guys Xbox

  • XRayLexx XRayLexx (DTW) (@XRayLexx) reported

    @Capt_Logun @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 Yeah, that I get. But even the first mercenary mission was aimed at new pirates (took our crew about an hour). I was hoping the new game download would allow them to drop in new voyages with little disruption. Like a “games as a service” it need fresh content on a regular basis.

  • Kelleth Danish Crusader (@Kelleth) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Bought the Sovereign Wheel and was very sad to see that it is green, googled and found it is a bug, but I am still sad about it. Please don't wait a month to fix it.

  • DoctorJackDev Doctor Jack (@DoctorJackDev) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Matchmaking is broken, it’s either kicking me or putting me a empty server.

  • Megalom75988104 Megalomaniac (@Megalom75988104) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @ChappersChapman @internalerror86 @thedoedelaar Fix the terrible combat you created with the OP sword. Game has so much potential.

  • Megalom75988104 Megalomaniac (@Megalom75988104) reported

    @TheChristianDM @SeaOfThieves Not sure why u keep going back to "double-shot," I think everyone is in agreement that was broken. put the old sword back in game so gun skill is a thing. Just because its a pirate game doesn't mean combat has to be a forced sword. Once again, boring combat, declining playerbase

  • OMFCody Cody (@OMFCody) reported

    Not so fun when I have a ton of loot on board and on the way to the outpost I encounter a Meg and two Krakens... Needless to say I ran out of cannon ***** and lost all my stuff... @SeaOfThieves please fix the encounter rates.

  • NotOR30 NotOR30 (@NotOR30) reported

    Sea of thieves is now the worst game I ever played Thse server is garbage Pvp is bad @SeaOfThieves fix this game you ruined it with this update. I’m stick with watching @summit1g play apex instead. Anyone who sees this don’t buy SoT not worth the 60$

  • RipcurlFitness Colin Pickett (@RipcurlFitness) reported

    @xStew360x @summit1g @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd I agree, if they don't nerf the sword then bring back the double-shot.. Fix hit marker, tend to the servers, esssgetitttt! 👍🏼

  • Darknesh57 Jamie Carroll (@Darknesh57) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @ChappersChapman @internalerror86 @thedoedelaar Fix the PvE toxicity

  • KRPC_AWalters A.Walters (@KRPC_AWalters) reported

    Yoo @SeaOfThieves attack spamming players should not be a thing, especially on servers where everyone's getting 150 ping. Just lost all the loot from a skull fort because of the lag and ability to lock players up so they're defenceless. To clarify, 3 of us were experiencing this!

  • HyperSparklez maga (@HyperSparklez) reported

    @JoeNeate1 @RyoveYT @PrecurserOmega @SeaOfThieves @ChappersChapman @internalerror86 @thedoedelaar @GreggsOfficial Can you fix the delay on weapons after sprinting, combat just feels mega clunky and it seems like a lazy change. This has nothing to Even do with double gun, this was just a nerf to Guns generally

  • oo_prentiss_oo Kat Burton (@oo_prentiss_oo) reported

    @Prod1gyXx @Capt_Ballzonia @SeaOfThieves @CaptainAshBacon No poor taste is the constant call out of #NotMyPirateLegend...I personally have zero issues with how you did it because quite frankly all of us that started at Beta had no idea what the hell to do. Your success as a gamer is great just as @Capt_Ballzonia success is great.

  • RyoveYT Ryan (@RyoveYT) reported

    @RipcurlFitness @summit1g @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves #SeaOfThieves Had the potential to become very competitive with its older gameplay , adding a 0.1 to 0.2 seconds delay between switching weapons and simply nerf the eye of reach hip fire accuracy would have been enough to prevent the " glitch "but they went all in

  • AvroLancaster45 AvroLancaster39 (@AvroLancaster45) reported

    @jmulathegod @SeaOfThieves Yea I def will once I fix my mic

  • stevent2002 Stevent2002 (@stevent2002) reported

    @DMFSaint @MrLimitless91 @SeaOfThieves I wouldn't be surprised if the confusion is caused by poor hit registration. The guns have a problem where you land a shot but don't actually deal any damage. It's harder to tell with the sword as it lacks proper hit markers but it's definitely still a possibility

  • DMFSaint Saint (@DMFSaint) reported

    @stevent2002 @MrLimitless91 @SeaOfThieves People need to stop jumping directly to cheating when they lose a fight. Please educate me about a way to cheat that gives you extra health without lag switching, which he didn't do. Happy to be wrong but I've literally never heard of or seen it in my 500+ hours playing.

  • DMFSaint Saint (@DMFSaint) reported

    @ItsViolq @MrLimitless91 @SeaOfThieves Blunder could have been hipfire and w bloom could have missed most of the pellets. Also, link me proof that there's a way to cheat that gives you extra health without lag switching, which he didn't do. People need to stop jumping directly to cheating when they lose a fight.

    @SeaOfThieves hi I'm having a control issue. I've only just downloaded the game in xbox and have been playing for 5 minutes, I haven't been able to sprint not matter what I do. I have rebinded it to the A key (jump) sprint still doesnt work. Any ideas

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @PolskaKing1 @SeaOfThieves Yes!!! Also when I change weapons while in combat from a blunderbuss to a cutlass 🤔 it’s only happened since this last update 😔 I hope they fix it because PVP has became impossible and I loved a bit of PVP

  • DMFSaint Saint (@DMFSaint) reported

    @MrLimitless91 @SeaOfThieves Shit I can barely afford my ONE XB account let along an alt. Not me bruh. Just tired of people saying things are broken or people are cheating when it's player gameplay issues. FYI neither of your videos look like cheating. They look like you missing swipes.

  • ThatsailorG ThatSailor Gaming (@ThatsailorG) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix the sword trap. That is more toxic then double. But good try on trying to fix a game. #fixthesword #bringbackdoublegun @summit1g

    @EmersonrocksTv @summit1g if that was true SOTwould be top twitch it's not... what poeples enjoy watching in @SeaOfThieves is dead with their patch wich rujn the fast and competitive gun plays.. nerfing snipers hip fire would have fix the glitch there was no need to make the entire gameplay slugish&Bad

  • JanglesAU JanglesAU (@JanglesAU) reported

    @Cloakraven Now that would be a great idea in itself, Skeleton Wizards/mages that create duplicates so you need to pick the right one to kill. Or they cast curses like the cursed cannonballs on the player ie a broken leg. #SeaOfThieves #BeMorePirate #skeletonwizards #skeletonmages
