Sea of Thieves Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • SymbioteSphinx Sixxx Hell (@SymbioteSphinx) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I don't like how people can just steal the skull and turn it in. 2 hours of hardwork taken in seconds. Fix your game.

  • Stardust19361 Kryef (@Stardust19361) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd I'd like to address the current issue in the Arena game mode where players can simply go AFK and farm coins. This ruins the game for basically everyone that at least tries to sail with an open crew. Please implement some sort of system that kicks them.

  • RubySplashtail Ruby Splashtail (@RubySplashtail) reported

    @minimemarclee @SeaOfThieves Shame you're now cursed indefinitely, where you will disconnect from the server just before you hand in those trophy storm fish you spent an hour trying to catch.

  • mr_festis Captain Oarsome, aka MrFestis (@mr_festis) reported

    @nina_michelle19 @SeaOfThieves @IIMikezII @RareLtd Too bad it wasn't a Wrecker, then it would have broken all WRECKORDS 😂

  • LittleEckert Julieckert (@LittleEckert) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Not cool that you allow Skelton Ships to despawn (dive underwater) in the midst of battle... Waste of time and a hundred cannonballs 😐 please fix this.

  • gkbenj Ben Johnson (@gkbenj) reported

    Yo @SeaOfThieves just a heads up. Tall tales seem to glitch during server migration and we just lost out mission at the last hurdle :(

  • misfit75256 mikey ostrowski (@misfit75256) reported

    @Hitbotc @SeaOfThieves Thought so, I’ve noticed since the last update my game tends to crash on pc every 2-4 hours or so

  • BaronBrr BaronBrr (@BaronBrr) reported

    @SeaOfThieves ******* fix game crashing so I can stop losing progress on tall tales

  • TheSp33d3mon Schrödinger's Cat (@TheSp33d3mon) reported

  • MSTClan3 MST [SoT] Clan (@MSTClan3) reported

    @BrunodiazGaming @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 Sword fighting has been 100% destroyed. The fix is SO simple. Put swords back EXACTLY how they were before you (@RareLtd ) fixed "double gunning".

  • MSTClan3 MST [SoT] Clan (@MSTClan3) reported

    @TwinkieTweak @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 ******* HATE this glitch

  • BruceWa17046519 Bruce Wayne (@BruceWa17046519) reported

    @SeaOfThieves not that you give a **** about the problems in your game. But if I wanted to die by a sniper with aimbots then I’d play call of duty.

  • curvyflounder Curvyflounder 82 (@curvyflounder) reported

    @SeaOfThieves please fix the Xbox loading time. Its not my internet. It took 30 seconds to load back in and in the midst of battle 30 seconds is is between losing everything and surviving.

  • jadoh89976 Radsphere (@jadoh89976) reported

    @SeaOfThieves FIX YOUR TERRIBLE SERVERS, I GET ALL THE WAY TO SHORES OF GOLD WITH HOURS OF WORK JUST TO HAVE THE SERVER CRASH AND LOSE IT ALL. SERIOUSLY NOT PLAYING ANYMORE!!!!

  • JesseGriffin812 Jesse griffin (@JesseGriffin812) reported

    @SeaOfThieves yal have switched my server 25 times in last 2 hours. And I'm lagging bad

  • metroplex11123 Metroplex11123 (@metroplex11123) reported

    @AInterfectum @SeaOfThieves My problem is my buddies get sidetracked really easily most of the time and we comeback with no loot

  • Ryan31297 ExtremelySadSixerFan (@Ryan31297) reported

    @TitanfallBlog @Dexerto @SeaOfThieves you guys should do this. And fix the lag.

  • PiratedaveMF PiratedaveMF (@PiratedaveMF) reported

    Hello Erbudy! I am having some technical issues with the old rig right now. Everything should be all set in an hour! Sorry for the delay but we will be back to killing and looting and drinking on the @SeaOfThieves shortly!

  • DadBodHans Dad-Bod Hans (@DadBodHans) reported

    @JoeNeate1 @SeaOfThieves As for motivation, well I would think resolving an issue that can hurt your profit margin would be sufficient motivation. Theres a problem with people using hacks and exploits, ruining the experience for console players and we have next to no recourse for resolving the issue...

  • DadBodHans Dad-Bod Hans (@DadBodHans) reported

    @JoeNeate1 @SeaOfThieves I think engaging the development team on a public platform IS the best way after support tickets go unanswered and the problem persists for nearly the entire course of the game. Its not abuse to point out a legitimate issue that is ruining the game for a lot of people

  • Ryan31297 ExtremelySadSixerFan (@Ryan31297) reported

    @SeaOfThieves listen. The lag is horrible brotherrrsss I can’t do shit in this game with your shitty servers. Do something or lose players

  • pastelmattyt Mattie by Day, Janet by Night (@pastelmattyt) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Please fix your game! We had to restart a Tale 3 times because this one crew harassed us for a solid hour and kept sinking us when we approached an island. Make it so ships with Tale voyages can't take player damage or something at least.

  • Dave02684509 Dave (@Dave02684509) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix YOUR ******* GAME

  • Dave02684509 Dave (@Dave02684509) reported

    @SeaOfThieves bullshit hit reg bullshit sword delay shoot someone in the face hit them 3 times with the sword they hit me once with a shot and once with a sword I die 30ping FIX YOUR ******* GAME

  • Cyril_ODST Jaymes Thompson (@Cyril_ODST) reported

    @SeaOfThieves you know.actually, my biggest problem is the reoccuring horrible lag that happens when someone ohln has a crap connection. At least GTA lets you find a new session to try and fix crap. Stuck rubberbanding around my ship off a skel fort unable to play because of lag

  • DrewDefinition Drew Tombs (@DrewDefinition) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I'm having a really hard time playing the game atm. When launching it'll give me errors, and then when I get on I'm getting crashes constantly and kicked to the dashboard. It's really bad.

  • FiltheeMudblood FiltheeMudblood (@FiltheeMudblood) reported

    @AutarkisMike @NayfePacewell @MeanaFaerie @SeaOfThieves @ChrisMarlow666 Crap I forgot. Uuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh fine, just a pineapple until further problems arise.

  • karebear1392 Kaja Edwards 😍👽✨ (@karebear1392) reported

    I'll sure miss playing #SeaOfThieves next few weeks while my broken arm heals, but twitter will help fill the void a little!

  • AutarkisMike Autarkis (@AutarkisMike) reported from York, England

    @FiltheeMudblood @NayfePacewell @MeanaFaerie @SeaOfThieves @ChrisMarlow666 You will very occasionally get shot from above but not often enough to make it a real issue

  • DrewCiambor Drew Ciambor (@DrewCiambor) reported

    @SeaOfThieves The world is changing killed me crew...It caused me to crash into an island and a stronghold keg blew up and killed us all...smh

  • TheOneRealNigma Temporal Enigma (@TheOneRealNigma) reported

    @StreamerStoney @SeaOfThieves That seems like a you problem

  • ViolentPayload 🕹ViolentPayload 🕹 (@ViolentPayload) reported

    @Kaptn_Klutch @PeaSoupBandits @JPizzle133 @SeaOfThieves I got booted out of a party and essentially everyone left bc not only me but 1 other person were having a less than stellar showing. A train wreck of errors. Next lobby I was better. But random lobbies are difficult to deal with. 😬

  • SimonIsTalking Simon (@SimonIsTalking) reported

    I think the rule in @SeaOfThieves arena should be once you're in the match you're in the match. No leaving. If you disconnect, you're banned from arena for 24 hours.

  • HopesBane Hopebane (@HopesBane) reported

    @SeaOfThieves please fix the scumbag afk boters in arena

  • GliffGaming EMPIRE Gliff (@GliffGaming) reported

    @Microsoft @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @Xbox for the love of christ please fix the damn game. I crashed 6 times with no reason for why and I missed out on battling the gold hoarder with my buddy @GnobGaming He couldn’t send me an invite back to help fight for whatever reason

  • R0DRIG0M5 Rodrigo Mariño Sousa (@R0DRIG0M5) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Since the matchmaking changes I keep spawning in solo or two men crews. Its very frustrating to start on a ship by your own and being able to really compete against the other crews, feels unfair. Also there a lots of AFK players just farming reputation on the arena. Please fix it

  • LiamBassett24 Mag977 (@LiamBassett24) reported

    @SeaOfThieves The only other clunky part of the PvP is when I go for the parry sword lung I won't get the move speed buff and the movement is really glitchy. Idk if this is due to server lag or if it hasn't finished the parry animation, but I know it did not used to be like this.

  • LiamBassett24 Mag977 (@LiamBassett24) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I know these issues are important to everyone, but I'd love to chime in a PvP related issues that make combat quite clunky. The major bug I'm running into is when I go to aim in my gun (mostly happens with blunder, but other guns as well) it will un-aim the weapon.

  • caitlynlopez25 caitlyn lopez (@caitlynlopez25) reported

    @SeaOfThieves are you aware of the issues with the mermaid spawn ever since the patch the mermaid never spawns in front of me or my friends anymore it spawns on the completely opposite side of where we are and it makes things very difficult especially if we need to get back quick

  • Deacon72Poole Deacon Poole (@Deacon72Poole) reported

    @Technigaming @SeaOfThieves Or maybe a “Titanaboa”, Giant Serpant boss. Also Whales, that could be hunted and harpooned, but could also fight back and breach themselves and crash ontop of your ship, or slam into it from the side

  • Steve_Kay_81 Stephen Kay (@Steve_Kay_81) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I love the anniversary update, but just a slight problem when doing the final Tall Tale. This needs to be a private instance, or when you sink a ship, they shouldn't respawn at the island. This makes it impossible to finish the tale when you have unfriendly pirates.

  • Plecotuz Derrick, Son of Merrick (@Plecotuz) reported

    @FyreSails @JakeTheOtherDog @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd I'm more or less happy to be punished for getting hit, Maybe let me turn still so I can defend a knife in the back but they need to fix this punished for missing a swing garbage especially when it's the hit reg not working and not me missing

  • FyreSails FyreSails (@FyreSails) reported

    @Plecotuz @JakeTheOtherDog @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd in the new dev update they actually addressed the hit reg issues finally which i think is about 80% of the problem. The other 20% is everyone sprinting around slashing their swords like maniacs.

  • Plecotuz Derrick, Son of Merrick (@Plecotuz) reported

    @FyreSails @JakeTheOtherDog @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd They have a few options then Fix hot reg, That way when I 100% hit a sword swipe I don't get punished for a miss (in arena just about every sword swipe I hit I get punished for) Put us in matches with people from our own country (Aus has shit net and we suffer playing us/uk)

  • CurtisAshley1 Curtis Ashley (@CurtisAshley1) reported

    @Nausicaa_Kazeno @SeaOfThieves Yep I hear ya. When the white flags up they should make it so that other players can't damage you or your boat but still raid your storage and loot. World items like explosives would still be an issue tho.

  • JordanKgames Jordan Kuiper (@JordanKgames) reported

    I'm going to spend the next few hours trying to fix my issue with xbox games on the PC. I really want to get back into @SeaOfThieves...

  • camelfromlunch3 Camelfromlunch3 (@camelfromlunch3) reported

    @lukemorris10 @kore_virus @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @JoeNeate1 I believe it bud! It’s soul crushing when the game has true potential but the toxic community as a whole that exploits these issues and bugs and doesn’t encourage them to be correct is what truly ruins the game.

  • dirtydawg469 Dirty (@dirtydawg469) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Money says it's still broken.

  • FyreSails FyreSails (@FyreSails) reported

    @DILLIGAFAU1 @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd Swordplay was screwed over when they changed it period. This isnt real life and they need pvp to be balanced which is why we cant swing endlessly. It's already a problem that there is hardly any penalty when missing a slash.

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @seaofthieves fix your damn servers already!!! I am tired of losing tales because they are so laggy or the games crashes. Especially by daggertooth.

  • misfit75256 mikey ostrowski (@misfit75256) reported

    @SonikuRaharu @Sarah_S_Rivera @SeaOfThieves Hopefully after they add optional cross play they also work on hit registration as that has been a slight issue since launch

  • rogerkingsland Roger Kingsland IV (@rogerkingsland) reported

    @wildwelshpete @SeaOfThieves Devs have been looking into this for months now, but they've said it's a more complicated issue than it seems - it has to do with memory allocation etc. and if a fix is possible, it requires some heavy restructuring of code. Fingers crossed that it works out!

  • squashman22 Squashman22 (@squashman22) reported

    @Gothalion @SeaOfThieves They are pushing it on a different streaming service. It's Microsofts fault.

  • VinnyVeeLive Vinny Vee ⚡ (@VinnyVeeLive) reported

    @MrRazamataz @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd Yeah it literally happens to me every time I play, but it is what it is until it's fixed. I am very excited for the hit reg fix. At least it's a priority and hopefully they figure it out

  • Metal_Ninja MetalNinja (@Metal_Ninja) reported

    I'm really gonna have no life other than gaming this year 😂 - recently become obsessed with @SeaOfThieves - Crash Team racing gets a re-release soon - @Warcraft is incoming - MCC is coming to the PC! Looks like this will be the last the wife sees of me for a while!

  • DreadDoug Dread Pirate Doug (@DreadDoug) reported

    @MrRazamataz @VinnyVeeLive @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd I think that's related to some of the hit registration issues they discussed in this week's dev update. That's definitely happened to me once or twice.

  • wildwelshpete wildwelsh Pete 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@wildwelshpete) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Personally I think loading times are more of an ongoing issue
