  • mengajon_ #ReleaseTheSnyderCut (@mengajon_) reported

    @thechocmoojoo @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 That’s true it’s like a magical unicorn. I should just sit in the middle of the ocean and wait for it. I hope they can fix it to where it’s not like a pot of gold.

  • Dragon350XBox DragonGaming350 (@Dragon350XBox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix this skeleton ship glitch

  • CrazyJuan77 CrazyJuan (@CrazyJuan77) reported

    @CRIMS0NGUARDX @JoeNeate1 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @Xbox @XboxCanada Oh yea, it's an issue too, no doubt. Just saying that if they really wanna kill the exploit hipfire accuracy nerf should do it and make blunderbuss the CQB choice it's supposed to be.

  • CrazyJuan77 CrazyJuan (@CrazyJuan77) reported

    @CRIMS0NGUARDX @JoeNeate1 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @Xbox @XboxCanada I just hope they don't get hung up on the switching, the real issue is the hipfire accuracy of the EoR.

  • Bad_Dps Capt'n aoelord4 (@Bad_Dps) reported

    pirate service broadcast before you all leap on this strategy i feel i should say it should only be used by A professional pirate as thats what the jobs about #SeaOfThieves

  • LukasQripT QripTiiieee 🐺 (@LukasQripT) reported

    .@SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 PLEASEEEE FIX the server shit... why does it keep putting us on American servers... we have yet to play on EU servers!!! C'MON!!!

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @Defnoise @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves Well, hopefully this new patch with the smaller install will fix that. Fair winds and flowing seas!

  • Defnoise Defnoise (@Defnoise) reported

    @1Chenzo @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves Ya I think I can agree we r not going to agree on this maybe I'm just lucky or what but I'm not having these issues with pc players everyone else is having I kill them just as easy. Black screen and laggy hit boxes that's my issue pc loads so fast vs xbox

  • Defnoise Defnoise (@Defnoise) reported

    @1Chenzo @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves I don't have issues with aiming I'm at 6.5 on controller sensitively works fast enough for me I'll stick by my statement play on pc man mouce and keyboard don't belong on consoles ever.

  • matheusflurj Matheus Marchetti (@matheusflurj) reported

    @SeaOfThieves my crew just lost our last Guilded Gift due to server issues :(

  • PoseidonAtHelm 👀 (@PoseidonAtHelm) reported

    @sspooooon @SeaOfThieves The double gun issue will be addressed in the Feb. update. So, until then you will still see it.

  • Defnoise Defnoise (@Defnoise) reported

    @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves Its the next billion dollar idea shared game ip's thru any gaming device tech is just not there yet it's not able to process fast enough thru program software to much lag atm maybe in 5/7 years might see the first title share all platforms

  • Defnoise Defnoise (@Defnoise) reported

    @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves I'll just say this it's not a easy glitch to activate.. it does suck of you get stuck on a spot like a tree and can't die..

  • Defnoise Defnoise (@Defnoise) reported

    @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves Turn up the sensitivity I don't have a issue with pc players other then double gun and load times not split lobbies that's silly maybe a choice to turn off cross platform like on rocket league I like the idea of friend's on different platforms able to game together

  • ApacheZombie Dillion Waddell (@ApacheZombie) reported

    @SeaOfThieves There is a glitch in the game right now where the skull fort doors sent working right

  • pmfg333 MFN FALLRATE (@pmfg333) reported from Central Gardens, Texas

    @PeaSoupBandits @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 I am fine with people using double guns but it's that there is no delay in switching between the two that is the root of the problem. If there was a delay that allowed time to close distance, heal and counter then folks would have to have some talent to double gun. #YEEHAW

  • PloughmanDaniel Daniel Ploughman (@PloughmanDaniel) reported

    @SeaOfThieves You guys need to learn how to fix your skeleton ship agro interaction with sloops. I had one chase be for about 29 minutes even after i went to a large island and lost it. It then reagroed while i was pbe'ing and sunk my ship that had 12k+. Quit worrying about Sum.

  • FaultyExpert95 Mitchell Smith (@FaultyExpert95) reported

    @ItsWonderPhil @thealcani @try_saratop @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 I mean its still the same issue you are being rewarded more total loot for having an easier time while anyone not in yiur group who os having a more difficult recieves no benefit. There is still no downside to an alliance which for many including me is an issue.

  • FaultyExpert95 Mitchell Smith (@FaultyExpert95) reported

    @k8lyn2550 @ItsWonderPhil @thealcani @try_saratop @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 I do c how ppl have an issue with 3 gallys in an alliance. Like the pve servers where people play the game without any worry of losing loot, i would say is breaking game mechanics. Only reason i think this eg isnt so bad is because it happened naturally, rather than planned out.

  • MaggGame MagGame (@MaggGame) reported

    @SeaOfThieves any reason why suddenly my frames drop under 20 while streaming using obs suddenly. Just started recently. Can’t find a fix at all.

  • Barky103 ₩ØØ₭łɆ (@Barky103) reported

    @Defnoise @SeaOfThieves Did you say get on your lvl lol and there is no god mode glitch if there was it's would be insanely over used and rare wouldn't have replied like that and you used to advertise a candle company and you have tweets saulging **** you to PlayStation and rare

  • HauntSlider HauntSlider (@HauntSlider) reported

    I think I'm done with @SeaOfThieves for a while. I generally solo because of my work schedule and other issues. Tonight was the 4th time since Saturday that I've just been completing quests and either the Ghost ship shows up or some ass jumps me at an outpost. #greatgamebutdone

  • NuggieYT Nuggie (@NuggieYT) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Can you stop posting shitty updates and just fix your ******* game. How hard is it to make 2 different servers one for pvp and pve you ******* retarded company. Im sick of no skill ***** shooting me in the back when im playing your stupid ******* game. (1/2)

  • JordanMeliani Professor « Hate » McSalty PhD 🇫🇷 ⭐️⭐️ (@JordanMeliani) reported

    @Dj_Redcap @therowrowe @stevent2002 @SeaOfThieves Like people don’t get me wrong the problem isn’t me PVPing it’s the crew pvp where I play with friends that are not used to play w/o aim assist that makes it hard. I can’t help them and sometimes I can’t help myself too because PC is absolutely OP asf. I wanna have fair fights

  • AaronWStump Aaron (@AaronWStump) reported

    @iw_miked @SeaOfThieves Yea I'm going to play that on PC still. I just miss streaming some console games + can't stream BO4 because of FPS issues on PC.

  • Defnoise Defnoise (@Defnoise) reported

    @Barky103 @SeaOfThieves Not even talking about this glitch.. there are so many glitches/bugs alot of ppl don't even know about im more talking about God mode no mod or pc or hack needed its just part of the game. Let me know when you find it and get on my level...

  • hiatus23 Jesse (@hiatus23) reported

    @CrazyJuan77 @PixelBit7 @RareLtd @Xbox @SeaOfThieves @XboxP3 @XboxQwik @Gamerboss So im saying to stop crying about other pirates raiding you cheating is Obvisouly an issue

  • GAARAtheRED Charles (@GAARAtheRED) reported

    @ByteSizeImp @SeaOfThieves Granted all the wrecks I found last night were fully submerged, maybe that was the issue for me personally. That and I still seem to get caught up on everything inside the ship when searching it

  • kieranmcclure94 Kieran mcclure (@kieranmcclure94) reported

    @SeaOfThieves hi is there a issue with letters of recommendation I purchased 3 for 90 dubloons and haven't received the levels can you please help

  • GAARAtheRED Charles (@GAARAtheRED) reported

    @ByteSizeImp @SeaOfThieves I said *almost* unplayable solo, and it's not JUST the Megs, it's the emerging Skelly Galleons and any other boat bigger than a sloop, hell even duo sloops can pose a major threat to solo players, especially till they fix the double gun abuse

  • emiel1981 Emiel (@emiel1981) reported

    @Vanila @MrMidLifeCrysis @SeaOfThieves @XboxGamePass Double gunning works on Xbox aswell but will be removed from the game. The hole "PC players have a huge advantage"- narrative is just a cooked up story by Sony fanboys. I'm PL5 and have been playing since alfa; zero issues with PC players.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @gangspank_exe @SeaOfThieves They just mentioned that the fix for the double gun is in the next patch.

  • JordanMeliani Professor « Hate » McSalty PhD 🇫🇷 ⭐️⭐️ (@JordanMeliani) reported

    @Mynuku @stevent2002 @therowrowe @SeaOfThieves I talked about the keyboard and mouse more than the adapter itself which is the same problem basically.

  • CrazyJuan77 CrazyJuan (@CrazyJuan77) reported

    @1Chenzo @Fallenhero00 @Vanila @SeaOfThieves @XboxGamePass yea but really thats a band aid. It wont really bridge the gap between playing on console and PC. It'll be interesting after they fix double gunning, if the fix is real, prepare for much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

  • stevent2002 Stevent2002 (@stevent2002) reported

    @JordanMeliani @misfit75256 @therowrowe @SeaOfThieves That's an issue on both version. Hit registration is so broken in this game. You can shoot people 3-4 times and they'll walk away like nothing happened

  • JordanMeliani Professor « Hate » McSalty PhD 🇫🇷 ⭐️⭐️ (@JordanMeliani) reported

    @misfit75256 @stevent2002 @therowrowe @SeaOfThieves Not to mention I suspect a hit registration problem I shot a guy on the ladder climbing to our mast with the eye of reach TWICE he kept going and dropped our barrels and taunt us in the chat.

  • XxTHOR1998xX Emma Thorburn (@XxTHOR1998xX) reported

    @robertwil01 @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd I’ve never had a problem with the one, plus I just bought the one S so it can’t be the Xbox... also re installed the game and... NOTHING.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @CrazyJuan77 @MrHyperrion @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @Gamerboss @ChappersChapman @Natiredgals @HTK360 Perhaps. I’d love to see real data (but I expect they keep that kind of stuff close to the chest.) I do know that the geometry shooting issues are cross platform, it’s just easier to do on PC.

  • CrazyJuan77 CrazyJuan (@CrazyJuan77) reported

    @1Chenzo @MrHyperrion @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @Gamerboss @ChappersChapman @Natiredgals @HTK360 It'll be a good start (and a beautiful meltdown) when they get that corrected. I still think the fact that it went most of a year without being an issue illustrates that its not really the game that is the issue, but the flood of pc players.

  • MrHyperrion 🎮 (@MrHyperrion) reported

    @CrazyJuan77 @Nintendad_ @RareLtd @Xbox @SeaOfThieves @XboxP3 @XboxQwik @Gamerboss Crossplay is really a simple fix. I think Rare is scared to make changes bc of Summit to be honest. That’s just my take. Who knows. Why not take about it. No 1 word. Weird

  • KbergOfficial Kris (@KbergOfficial) reported

    @AutarkisMike @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @residentveg @BIGsheep @LadyFeyat But he can’t control his chat though, no one can with such big fanbase, he can do somethin about ingame but i do not see a problem with what he’s doin except being a regular gamer but alright mr.overlyfriendly

  • AutarkisMike Autarkis (@AutarkisMike) reported

    @KbergOfficial @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @residentveg @BIGsheep @LadyFeyat I have zero problem with PvP and stealing loot, I do it myself, it's the toxicity I have a problem with

  • Mrharrybawlz MstrHB (@Mrharrybawlz) reported

    Newsflash: If you're playing SOT with a controller, you're gonna lose fights to MKB. Even after the fix comes. And if they fix hit reg, you're gonna be even worse off. #seaofthieves #notseaoffriends #sot

  • BIGsheep James Thomas (@BIGsheep) reported

    @ERaidz @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 @residentveg @LadyFeyat This is something we're addressing. Hoping to have a fix with pioneers sometime soon.
