  • roxaneouelletc Roxane Ouellet C. (@roxaneouelletc) reported

    @SeaOfThieves There's a translation error in the Maiden Voyage. It says Xbox and Rare presents SoT, but in the French version it says Xbox et Rare cadeau Sot, it should says Xbox et Rare présentent SoT. Sorry couldn't find a Contact button on the webpage!

  • _LarZen_ LarZen 🇳🇴 (@_LarZen_) reported

    @eurogamer Good. Hopefully #SeaOfThieves will do something to deal with their PvP issues as well

  • AnonymousH1ppo AnonymousHippo (@AnonymousH1ppo) reported

    @lukemorris10 @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves It wasn't intentional and they are working on a fix

  • Chani_ZA Chantelle “Chani” Alexander 🪁 (@Chani_ZA) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix your disconnection errors. Too many people are losing these because of almondbeard.

  • oxienatOr Alex F. (@oxienatOr) reported

    @Sith_Trooper66 @1Chenzo @AyeofReach @SeaOfThieves i love cross-play! cross-play is the damn future! perhaps not in a game where PvP is a fact... i have both, xbox and PC, and i see the advantage over the Xbox day by day! i'm glad my mates on Xbox don't want to opt-out, now @RareLtd need to fix the inGameVoice for them!

  • Sputnikpotato Ian Huss (@Sputnikpotato) reported

    @SeaOfThieves anyway to make the black loading screen not take forever. Literally have been having issues all night of a minute plus to get back on the ship

  • MrsScarlettt Helan ❤️ (@MrsScarlettt) reported

    @SeaOfThieves you guys really need to fix the problems with spawn killing. It is absolutely ridiculous to spawn in and be killed before I even get to move.

  • danpartridge03 VitalAssassin (@danpartridge03) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix the loading time after going through door on ship of the damned 10 mins on ******* xbox is a ******* joke

  • rederz13 Rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

    @louiscarman23 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Never happend to me but i got killed by 2 guys the other day and i came back with them on my ship saying "sorry don't kill us our ship just vanished" 😂😂 so i would say its a possible glitch.

  • Brian_Steinman Brian Steinman (@Brian_Steinman) reported

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Fix the server population.

  • PersonalC0ffee PersonalC0ffee (@PersonalC0ffee) reported

    @clit_crusader @ThisOceana @Matthew92775304 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves To play devil's advocate, that was a very complicated issue, was caused by multiple variables, and it was not easy to fix. Fixes take time. Fixes break code.

  • CptLuckyy CptLuckyy 🍀 (@CptLuckyy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd Can't connect to any servers are on Xbox we have set to play with controllers only. However, when we are on PC we have no option to turn controllers off. This is a major problem that needs addressing if it hasn't been already.

  • rederz13 Rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

    @iDuskk @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Yeah i know, i just dont have an SSD and dont fancy buying one just for sea of thieves. My other games don't have this issue once the game has loaded the first time.

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @MmmCherryade @davidramon20 @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Oh yeah just one of each supply on their ship 🤣 So they have something if they crash lol. Similar to how pirates used to leave pirates with one shot in their pistol. I’d love to see their faces when they see the barrels

  • davidramon20 David (@davidramon20) reported

    @MmmCherryade @lukemorris10 @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Well I did check the support site, and it said the team is working on a fix so it can be brought out in a future update. Unfortunately not a hot fix but gonna just wait after gilded season 😬

  • MmmCherryade Cherryade (@MmmCherryade) reported

    @davidramon20 @lukemorris10 @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Can’t steal the Athena chest if you don’t know they’re doing one though, I hope they revert the change/fix the issue

  • Bilbertthegreat J-Carp (@Bilbertthegreat) reported

    @katlikestacos @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Well I hope you don’t have a glitch finishing that voyage and then get no compensation like I did

  • itsbuckii ‎✪ Buckii ‎⍟ 💖 (@itsbuckii) reported

    @pigeuigi @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Oh goodness I didn’t know pet names were included! One of my friends’ birds was showing up as parrot but I just it was a small glitch on what I was seeing 😫 kinda like the flying barrels when you detach them from the harpoons 😂

  • DatboyKilljoy Joshua Williamson (@DatboyKilljoy) reported

    @OliverCowen3 @SeaOfThieves It's just a glitch.

  • TCody19 Tom cody19 (@TCody19) reported

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Also fix the problem that sometimes your scopes zooms in randomly

  • rederz13 Rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

    @louiscarman23 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Having the same issues its caused me to fall off my ship a good few times just by walking towards my cannons or harpoon.

  • clit_crusader mc respektor (@clit_crusader) reported

    @ThisOceana @Matthew92775304 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Only took like 4 updates to fix your equipment changing everytime you died or started a new game

  • ThisOceana Oceana (@ThisOceana) reported

    @lukemorris10 @Thor_von_Blitz @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves So it is in the notes as a known issue but I would bet everything on the fact that they’re letting it continue through gilded season

  • rederz13 Rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

    @SaltBlockSova @SeaOfThieves Funny thing is i don't have this issue on any other game i play only SOT

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves That doesn’t mean the game is dead what so ever! Just means you have to take a luck of the draw approach which a lot take anyhow! If you can’t gauge that someone is on a gilded Athena’s without looking on their voyage table then that’s a you problem! The Devs are doing fine!

  • ThisOceana Oceana (@ThisOceana) reported

    @WaTsNoTgUdD @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves It’ll probably take them 4 months to fix this just like equipment wheel. We need another company running this game

  • louiscarman23 Louis Carman (@louiscarman23) reported

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Ever since the Update, my game skips when I walk or jump, It’s really bad. Love the game and update, hate the bugs that come with it. Hope you guys can fix it soon.

  • WaTsNoTgUdD WaTs (@WaTsNoTgUdD) reported

    @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves It's a "known issue" still

  • rederz13 Rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Never mind the ridiculous amount of lag since this update. Spending around 4 minutes to load back on to my ship. Honestly its getting ridiculous and if it carries on this way im just going to stop playing all together.

  • davidramon20 David (@davidramon20) reported

    @lukemorris10 @ThisOceana @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves It’s a known issue in the support site, but that shouldn’t have been intentional if it was at some point, it’s been there since the beta and it’s a good way to know what you can steal from players *cough* gilded Athena *cough*

  • billdoe2313 Robertó Dolé (@billdoe2313) reported

    @SaltBlockSova @rederz13 @SeaOfThieves You can also buy SSD for the xbox as another fix. But my OG xbox doesn't have bad load times except for start up. My 1X is actually slower sometimes.

  • ThisOceana Oceana (@ThisOceana) reported

    @Matthew92775304 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Except they barely ever fix anything

  • Capt_Ballzonia 👁‍🗨 Captain Ballzonia 🏴‍☠️ (@Capt_Ballzonia) reported

    @iii_jat @internalerror86 @SeaOfThieves Not sure how to fix this

  • Pocketdeath timmeh (@Pocketdeath) reported

    @SeaOfThieves i feel like this when you have amazing stuff like arena but you never do more games modes with it , or you dont fix a bug for a months but can fix a exploits in days, or how you over price skins for stuff like 30 bucks a ship packwhen its only worth 10 to 15 in my eyes

  • xCinnamonbeardx CaptainCinnamonBeard (@xCinnamonbeardx) reported

    @Tart_Tee @SeaOfThieves right.... I just don't understand what so hard about fixing the issues with the mission table.... they don't intend to till febuary's update.... I think it was intentional with the guilded missions coming out

  • OlgaKamo Olga Kamouchkina (@OlgaKamo) reported

    @KaidaWrath @CaptainKinetik @SeaOfThieves having more common sense isn't hard, speaking up is what takes serious self assurance. The problem with kids is that they're still building their peronality and values so everything they encounter is a suggestion. <- why toxic players should be kicked from online communities.

  • Phantaxus Phantaxus 🇪🇺 🇬🇧 (@Phantaxus) reported

    @zoeylyn01 @JoeNeate1 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves If its lag sort out the server problem. If it hacking via third party tools the you need to go after the companies selling these third party tools. Take them to court for damaging your brand. Blizzard did for Overwatch hackers.

  • zoeylyn01 Zoey Lyn (@zoeylyn01) reported

    @JoeNeate1 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves Really need to fix the issue with these scripters Rare. No reason my entire crew’s game just completely stopped while a ship destroyed us and went back to normal when our ship respawned across the map. “Get good” my ass.

  • FreePolemikoi nick 🤝 (@FreePolemikoi) reported

    @SeaOfThieves can you guys fix the loading screen times, I’ve been respawning for 10 mins.

  • darkasylum27 RuleByTheSaint (@darkasylum27) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I have a problem that I’m okay with but I can’t get the money or rep from but anyways I went to a galleon open crew and got no teammates except one then I got the gilded voyage from duke and we voted for it and when it started my teammate left

  • Dong_Diagram DongDiagram (@Dong_Diagram) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Hey, not sure if this is a known thing, but all day today, I have been getting the allmondbeard crash after being in a game after 30 seconds or so. This has never been an issue in the past. Thanks

  • DarkFire1632 SnowyWolf (@DarkFire1632) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Me and my fiance were sailing and found a reapers chest. Then another random person game along and was spawn killing us and they were a pc player. In the settings I had only play with controllers on he was playing on a mouse so not fair. Please fix thank you:)

  • Cyberspacer18 Montana Malone (@Cyberspacer18) reported

    @iDuskk @SeaOfThieves no, I'm on pc and the problem's fixed, but thnx

  • KobiGreen4 ASF_ToxicBeast (@KobiGreen4) reported

    @SeaOfThieves me and my friends have been getting this problem don’t know about other people so what’s happening is that we can’t use the clothing store at all

  • ShoumiskyGamer Shoumisky (@ShoumiskyGamer) reported

    @SeaOfThieves On console Xbox we have problems: display bug, rollback, the character freezing, endless loading time.

  • BoredSpace BoredSpaceTurtle (@BoredSpace) reported

    @JIcpvp @EpicSugarPlum @SeaOfThieves They blacked me. It isnt an issue anymore

  • Potts52_ Michael Potts (@Potts52_) reported

    @distant_reaper @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport Because you know so much about me, idiot. My group of 5 played between 4-6 hrs per day every day of the beta, and mostly didnt hit the log in issues most had til the 3rd day in. Yeah, ALL of us preordered. And the "game" for a whole year was no different than the Beta content.

  • minimemarclee Marc Lee 🏴‍☠️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@minimemarclee) reported

    @1Chenzo @thenameislow @SeaOfThieves As long as the keyboard is plugged in after loading in there should be no problems.

  • BaptisteCtn Etsitpabix (@BaptisteCtn) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Houston, we have had a problem with a fort !

  • judgejudyslayer JudgeJudySlayer (@judgejudyslayer) reported

    @_SniperFi @malawibloat @Fr0styXC @SeaOfThieves No problem, sorry you weren’t able to play.

  • _brandondorf xelti (@_brandondorf) reported

    @QueenChelly_ @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @_haaaterade_ Fun fact, I was in this crew but doing the same thing Chelly did to get underneath the floor made my game crash. 🤣

  • alk_sevinc GameOsaur (@alk_sevinc) reported

    @MonkeyzPRican @Tals_Tales @ragincrinz @SeaOfThieves I have no problem with pirates attacking me. My beef is with the ones that attack needlesly.

  • pigeuigi Pigeon - Pige - Pigeuigi (@pigeuigi) reported

    @killzone1401 @MrHyperrion @SeaOfThieves and better frame rate and better load times and smoother control. Console players aren't shitty because we don't want to play at a disadvantage. If it was just down to skill there wouldn't be an issue. You're in denial if you think PC players don't have a clear advantage.

  • MrZoltec MrZoltec 🔜✈️PAXSOUTH (@MrZoltec) reported

    @MrHyperrion @SeaOfThieves I believe that those “issues” are mostly because pc is more optimized than console. When I play with my Xbox friends they have these issues but that does not mean that people are cheating or hacking.

  • MrHyperrion This is the Way! (@MrHyperrion) reported

    @oxienatOr @WaTsNoTgUdD @CarsickFall @SeaOfThieves You guys always think I’m going to get butt hurt. I don’t have an issue getting my ass kicked in the game lol.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @oxienatOr @MrHyperrion @WaTsNoTgUdD @CarsickFall @SeaOfThieves Its not that deep buddy. People paying to play online just wanted a more level playing field. Crossplay was not balanced and it introduced problems. Last night felt like the good old days in SoT, I shot people and they actually died.
