    @Robinjeelay @SeaOfThieves Tomorrow is Wednesday, but today is the 19th not the 20th. Sometimes they push updates back to fix the bugs in them before releasing them. Helps with not having to close the servers down halfway thru the day

    @SeaOfThieves Just took out 5 ships at a skull fort and they just kept coming back. Fix your bullshit fucking game your untalented swine

    I really love @SeaOfThieves but this whole "sea of friends" stuff makes the game so boring. Waiting 2 hours to find someone to do the thrones with and still not finding one is ridiculous. @RareLtd needs to fix this. #BeMorePirate

    @DarkinPriestess @Slayer0fKings @pharaohcreator @SeaOfThieves I'm just confident in myself and judging by both your responses I can tell that you lack any sort of problem solving skills and forward thinking. Therefore you'd have already lost as soon as we spotted you lol so please take your noob self and exit my mentions lol

    @SeaOfThieves are there any issues with Xbox connecting at the moment? was playing, got kicked, now cant join due Lazybeard error (inactivity)

    @JeStErDaClOwN @SeaOfThieves Hi there, this issue can pop up from time to time but your gold is not missing it is just not displaying correctly. Try restarting your system and then logging out and back in a couple times. This should fix the issue. Hope this helps!

  • TravisGajewski

    @SeaOfThieves just loaded into a session and did not have any gold or doubloons. Had to completely close the game and come back in to fix.

    Just Garry (@GJ_Doggy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Tried 6 times now over last couple days. Can not get another ship to help once without just opening fire. And since we can’t repeat the 5 solo seats without completing the other 5 I consider this patch broken. @Gamerboss

    @Paul_Mach1 @jessewilli33 @Gamerboss @SeaOfThieves If you work at sea of theives please try to fix item selection on console, never selects bananas, feels like you have to wait too long to pull them out if they even pull them out

    @XboxSupport @SeaOfThieves ahoy! I've a problem! When ever I try to play SoT with my partner on yh same network, we both get kicked after 5-10 minutes. Is this a known problem? Any other game is fine. But SoT boots us then my whole Xbox freaks out about its connection to parties.

    @pharaohcreator @Slayer0fKings @SeaOfThieves I'll just keep server hopping. Won't be an issue. Until they give me more reasons to PvP I'll just make the reasons they give PvE players to play hell

    @SeaOfThieves your game is need to fix the cheating problem. You know the one where you shoot someone point blank with a blunder 3 times and they don't die. So much for balancing. Bet if I posted a video of it you wouldn't repost it

    @SeaOfThieves it’d be nice if me and my crew didn’t lag out every time we are at a skull island fighting. Can’t rejoin due to “inactivity.” Definitely a game breaker

    @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves are you guys aware of the lag issue when encountering other boats? It’s happened a few times this week where half the crew freeze and the other half is fine.

    Krueger (@FreddyKrueg) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Ummm??? You can be DDOS just by being in the same server as another player? Got chased by 2 ships that were only there to grief and although we sunk them 2x, we all D/C at the same time, im told this is a DDOS attack... but without getting any info

    @raywand @BeastFireTimdog @XboxP3 @Gamerboss @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 There is an apparent issue with the game, if you have more than four playing someone(s) is getting screwed out of playing with friends.

    I had a technical issue with @SeaOfThieves and not only did they respond but they retroactively corrected the error. Not many dev teams do that, shows they really care about the players. Kudos.

    @SeaOfThieves sorry not sure where else to send this. I was selected for the pioneer program, I have opted in and when I try to reach the forum to report a problem it tells me I don’t have access. Also the Xbox pioneer program says it needs an update but it can’t retrieve it.
