    @DaggerMcTimbers @SeaOfThieves I've speedtested my connection and I've had no problems on other games. They need to stop skipping maintenance periods IMHO.

    I am almost certain #SeaOfThieves has been totally dead since a while, but it is baffling that those 3-4 content drops were totally useless and don't rectify a single problem that game had.

    @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 Hey guys you need to fix the eruption times on the islands. My friend and I just step foot on and island that just got done erupting and i swear not but a second later it went off again. Please fix that makes it very hard to do voyages.

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves please add dead zone adjustment for Xbox! Save me from having to buy another £150 controller. The problem only exists in sea of thieves 😕

    @SeaOfThieves Make a small hole in the hull, fix it and use water from the ship to do it. Water won't disappear from the ship

    @SeaOfThieves why is it the volcano rocks target the boat. Not only that but the player. There’s no way that all of those rocks are going directly at the boat. Fix your programming and make them actually random. This is a ridiculously stupid update. No wonder this game is dead

    @nina_michelle19 Not a problem. Looking to do more if anybody has any #SeaOfThieves pics, I will gladly work on them and add them to the #SeaOfThievesFamilyAlbum

    @SeaOfThieves ok, take a look at those rowboat codes. A glitch just cost me my ship and cargo. Grabbed the oars and was half way through it, couldn't dock to my ship, fell through into boiling seas.

    @SeaOfThieves NERF VOLCANOES!!! I waited for a volcano to stop so I could go get my chests and the second it stops I sail in dig my chest 1 time and its starts erupting again! I was on the island for 30 seconds and it erupts and destroys my ship! FIX IT

    @SeaOfThieves me and my son just got done playing The Devils Roar and this is the 2nd time we didn't get credit for finishing a gold hoarders voyage even though it said it was completed, have you heard anyone else having this problem

    @SeaOfThieves @rare Volcanoes go off WAAYYYYY too often. I've no issue with geysers, earthquakes or difficulty, but its absolutely downright stupid how long they go on for WHILST ALSO going off so often. THIS IS NOT FUN. I can deal with difficult, but IT IS NOT FUN!

    @SeaOfThieves We have run into a issue of senior trader Maureen on plunder out post whilst doing a cargo run, we couldn’t get her to drop cargo while pressing x. It did nothing, but could press y to buy voyages.

    Andrea (Fizzeelime) (@Fizzeelime) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I wanted to let you know that I think the plants on the cargo runs are broken or you maybe haven't noticed that they don't stay wet in a storm. I'm currently playing and have just delivered some to lone cove and was surprised I didn't get the full amount. 1 of 2...

    @WilliamDavisTX1 @TotestheGotes @SeaOfThieves I'm a console player and their IS an issue, compared to pc, console controls are slow and clunky and there's no way a console player can preform actions as quickly as a pc player. Why not make the left and right dpad keys quick select keys, each press cycles your cursed cannons

    @SeaOfThieves Hi, I have some problems with your game. When Im launching the games it gets stuck on "Enlisting pirate". I have tried unintalling the game and update Windows. All the solutions I have found is from seven months ago and they dont work for me.

    @ThirstySeas @SeaOfThieves Question! Before this patch introduced Cargo Runs I was 100/100 but only 16/19 titles? Did you have the same issue? I actually have 18 titles from commendations though. XD

  • christyxo2
    Christy O'Connor (@christyxo2) reported

    @OliTremblay2 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves I can accept that (to a degree) when the player is moving around and such but not when stationary for so long. I find that hard to put down to lag.

  • TotestheGotes

    @WilliamDavisTX1 @SeaOfThieves Im not sure what you mean. I play on PC and have played with plenty of console players without issue.

  • OliTremblay2
    Captain MiThRillanT (@OliTremblay2) reported

    @christyxo2 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves It happens to me too. Sometimes it is a glitch or lag that place a player somewhere but he is not there actually. You think you hit him but no he is not at the place your game points it. The pirate legend lair is a good example of this glitch.

    Hey @SeaOfThieves just wanna say you made me cry over a video game for the 1st time tonight. After all my efforts on a chill solo session I lost everything because of a damn glitch in game before the game decided to troll me, cuz you know it wasn't enough....

    Sea of Thieves Support (@SoT_Support) reported

    @AhhiraLS @SeaOfThieves Hi Ahhero. I am looking into this issue. In the meantime can you try running "wsreset", forcing an update for the game through the windows store, and a reinstall. If none of them work please let me know.

    @SeaOfThieves Hey I got codes for both the Ebon Flintlock and the Spinal figurehead and have redeemed them yet they do not show up in game. Can I get some assistance with this issue?

  • thebroadgame
    Charlie (@thebroadgame) reported

    @SeaOfThieves What is exactly the purpose of the volcanic eruptions ? Die and die and die without the chance to repair ? Even after your boat sinks you keep getting killed by eruptions on the new island where you respawn. Fix your game please.

    @Mathias_alstrup @SeaOfThieves Well I mean your pretty shit at explaining your thoughts it took you this long to say the issue you’ve had which is only with cloth if I’m correct as you’ve said, and you seem very angry I mean you said “shove that response up your ass” seems pretty angry to me lmfao

    @shaneofthrones @ItsDavidEmery @SeaOfThieves I feel your pain. My merchant rank is lagging. All rep is directly tied to the gold value of the thing you’re selling. I’ve toyed with the idea of just getting cages and catching golden animals - I wonder if it’s a better time vs rep situation.

    @SeaOfThieves instead of all the updates why not fix all the bugs in the game?

    @SeaOfThieves A PvE server? Please. I work full time with other commitments and have little time to play. I love this game and REALLY want to love it more but I'd love to login to a PvE server to progress at my pace with friends without greifers undoing that progression.

    ☠?Captain musick ?☠ (@illmusick83) reported

    @Captain_Falcore @SeaOfThieves I would disagree this is in my opinion the easiest thing to do in the game you keep bottom of the boat with water in it put everything else in the crows nest no issue the bottles can take a bit of damage to before they lose value I got hit with 2 cannonballs and still got 350

    Brian (@BrianTheDinoGuy) reported

    @Zombie_Cartman @misfit75256 @SeaOfThieves Past games didn't plan for the future and not everything that has been added was planned like the skeleton ships. The game has been advertised as as a game as a service since it was announced so you really can't complain about that.

    mikey ostrowski (@misfit75256) reported

    @Mathias_alstrup @SeaOfThieves I’ve had no issue with the rowboat mechanic when it comes to transporting items for cargo runs, and if the lack of content annoys you stop playing for a few months then come back, you may not like how that sounds but there’s either that or deal with less than what you expected

    @SeaOfThieves Hmm. Did you not know about the frequency of players turning into brilliant green skeletons? It happens a great deal more often than it used to. It wasn't in the "known issues" area, so I thought I'd mention it.
