    @jabrock666 @SeaOfThieves possible, but just by trial and error. there is no such mechanism included.

  • SlooperSolo FM7 Racefan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves @internalerror86 @residentveg @keeyaaaa @MudcatTV Nah, I got no problem clearing my ship. I'm not "complaining about nothing" I'm saying the game, which is based entirely player interactions, would be better without giving players the ability to turn every interaction into an ambush.

    @SeaOfThieves has turned into one of the most aweful games out there, it's completely broken, nothing works in it anymore and has become unplayable. Hope your happy @RareLtd. #seaofthieves #hatethisgame #gamer

  • MikeCantGame Mike CantGame (@MikeCantGame) reported

    @RareLtd when 4 #PirateLegends can't kill a kraken because the stupid thing wraps over the lower decks and ladders, you know your game is broken. #FixYourGame @SeaOfThieves!!

    @SeaOfThieves I love playing the game but I really hope you guys can fix the hit markers on the next update until then I can't play

  • ZeroSHEARER JAMES SHEARER (@ZeroSHEARER) reported

    @Capt_Ballzonia @SeaOfThieves Honestly think my biggest issue with trying to get all the commendations is finding long enough regularly to actually get some of them done. So long!

    @fathead7000 @Barnacules @SeaOfThieves Yep, I'm signed in, the service is actually *missing* in services.msc, not just disabled

    @SeaOfThieves I think it was between March and April I signed up for the insiders programme. I keep getting the denim beard error and am told I'm not signed up even though I've checked online and am def signed up. I've made a support request but even then I'm still not getting anywhere

  • JonlucaFusco zJonnnn (@JonlucaFusco) reported

    @AlexFivou @JonathanJames_i @SeaOfThieves I did it over a year ago there shouldn't be issues and they wouldn't change it, you just need a UK microsoft account as it's not in the Cyprus store

  • JonathanJames_i Liisn (@JonathanJames_i) reported

  • PolskaKing1 Polska King (@PolskaKing1) reported

    @a_a_r0nn @SeaOfThieves Gold is retroactively applied, so it's not even an issue for us.

    @SeaOfThieves U guys had this issue on and off throughout the games life starting at launch

  • CapnMoses 🍻Capt Moses🍻 (@CapnMoses) reported

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @SoT_Support I was looking on your site to try put a ticket in but couldn't find it... every time I play @SeaOfThieves at the minute I seem to be getting terrible lagging issues in game... it's really putting me off the game which is a shame because I absolutely love playing!!

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @Tinus_81 @WarmGlassOfMayo @SeaOfThieves They haven't fix jack and shit and jack has left the building. that alisterbeard they fixed 2 weeks ago is still around and payouts are jacked up. so I don't know "who is testing" but they should be fired.

  • dotcomrobots dotcomrobots (@dotcomrobots) reported

    @Matt23739222 @SeaOfThieves it's a mystery with Rare. Server lags, clients not updating properly on high traffic, lags, hitreg problems, walls not stopping bullets... I mean.. this is beyond a fix. It's a whole REVAMP at this point...

  • dotcomrobots dotcomrobots (@dotcomrobots) reported

    @Vap0r1zer @SeaOfThieves These lags are in the game since day 1 and they are barely talked about. We had some updates a month ago about a potential fix for the hit reg problem but nothing since. The game is still suffering of many server instabilities, Arena needs better competitive elements! OPTOUT plz!

    @SeaOfThieves fix the bullshit where the kraken blocks us from going below deck to board and get cannons. Shits stupid AF.

    @SeaOfThieves Can’t wait to do the update next week and have the game be broken like always

  • Ne0Abyss Steve McCallister (@Ne0Abyss) reported from Reading, England

    @SeaOfThieves I'm having problems getting on the insides programme I signed up a while age when I had a physical copy of the game and now I've a digital copy and am getting the demi beard error. I've submitted a report but have had no response back at all

  • LAsteroidplays Lava_asteroidplays (@LAsteroidplays) reported

    @SeaOfThieves There has been some issues on PC where people click to use the wheel, cannons, and raise or drop the anchor. They start to glitch for about a minute and then it kicks them off.

  • Matt23739222 Matt (@Matt23739222) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support JUST LETTING EVERYONE KNOW THAT THESE GUYS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR FANS! they keep ignoring the major problems

  • djbleachyuk Scott (@djbleachyuk) reported

    @NazshakEU @kory_rider @SeaOfThieves Let me fix this for you also: “I’m not intelligent enough to respond properly, thefore I claim I don’t care”

  • PatrickOakes Patrick Oakes (@PatrickOakes) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Still cannot play Insiders... Kiwibeard error

  • EpicSugarPlum EpicSugarPlum (@EpicSugarPlum) reported

    @BeeverLuke @SeaOfThieves Yes, it's all backed up, this problem is quite common, don't worry

  • kujaslover Susi (@kujaslover) reported

    @raziel_louis @SgtDangerCow @SeaOfThieves Don't worry, I have problems parking like this, too. 😅 My little ship stops a lot of meters before the harbour or isle because I'm afraid of hitting my ship 🙈

  • thatfilmnerd Nathan Sutton (@thatfilmnerd) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I’m getting a Kiwibeard error, so are several folks on Reddit.

  • Matt23739222 Matt (@Matt23739222) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support WHEN WILL YOU CHANGE THE BROKEN PVP

  • EGGamer_ EG Gamer (@EGGamer_) reported

    @mastergribble @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd You can't fix it. Is just how Windows and UWP games work. (Or at least that is what I found some time ago)

  • anxiousplatypus Emma Ward🌈 (@anxiousplatypus) reported

    @NVIDIAGeForce Has to be @SeaOfThieves because playing with friends never gets boring. If we're not yelling at each other for ignoring our directions or sinking the derpy skeleton ships that crash into us, then we're setting the world to rights whilst fishing. I have many new mates thx to SoT.

  • AndiVx Andi (@AndiVx) reported

    Another night of @SeaOfThieves ended during a mission (After half an hour) because of a server issue. Again. Meh. This is seriusly frustrating.

  • TobaccoSkunk TobaccoSkunk💖🎉 (@TobaccoSkunk) reported

    @JesseGriffin812 @Capt_Ballzonia @SeaOfThieves @Evulm0nkey @JPizzle133 @xXcarn3asadaXx @SkeletalPirate Sank it at the end. Wanted to see what would happen. At that point if other ships came near us they were lagging out and it was hour 27. There’s clips on my Twitch where you can watch the junk “dance” on the waters surface before it sinks. Easily one of the best things I’ve seen

  • jabrock666 Jason atkinson (@jabrock666) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Death by Xbox lag

  • Joanne57442452 Queen Jojo (@Joanne57442452) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @Louisejw91 so im gonna guess the issue with Skeletons despawning when your whole crew dies trying to do Order of Souls Quests. Went to Snake Island we die Skeletons disappear so we leave and go Crooks Hollow. We die Skeletons disappear again
