  • LoneWolfXuz_ ZackSnydersJusticeLeague (@LoneWolfXuz_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Hey guys I noticed when I turned treasure last night it was not counting it as sold. Please fix this issue. My rep wasent even moving.

  • rederz13 🎮Rederz13🥊 (@rederz13) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Cool cosmetics but pretty boring quest, nothing really new but the good thing about the quest is more people should be tempted to do FOTD now wich means more steals lol. Also getting slightly faster load times wich was one of my main problems.

  • LiquidWIFI Liquid🍪 (@LiquidWIFI) reported


  • rederz13 🎮Rederz13🥊 (@rederz13) reported

    @SeaOfThieves New quest is completly broken i go to an island pick up the flame and no skeletons spawn causing me to be stuck on one island

  • AegnorB Captain Aegnor (@AegnorB) reported

    @1Chenzo @DavrimTV @SeaOfThieves Problem is they might not have enough time and ressources to fix all of that with COVID around, so they can be excused.

  • MajesticApple90 apple (@MajesticApple90) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Wait what was the point of making people lag through the air after being shot out of the air from a cannon, was this only put in to discourage people from tdming. Air shots are one of the most fun mechanics in a tdm there is and you just kinda ruined it for nothing

  • Yade90 Kevin Fehrenkämper (@Yade90) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix EU ping pls... 150 pings damn it @SeaOfThieves

  • Yade90 Kevin Fehrenkämper (@Yade90) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix the ping problems instead of baiting with drops

  • DavrimTV Davrim (@DavrimTV) reported

    @1Chenzo @ShoobieGamer @SeaOfThieves Yup. They need to reset expectations around the update schedule so they can “fix the fundamentals” Smaller more health focused monthly updates and larger content quarterly updates. Or every other month health updates and quarterly content. What ever is best for the devs

  • ShoobieGamer Shoobie (@ShoobieGamer) reported

    @DavrimTV @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves Yes it can be a band aid, but not a sustainable one. They need to solve, as you said, the core issues that are most likely stemming from unorganized, or badly written code

  • DavrimTV Davrim (@DavrimTV) reported

    @ShoobieGamer @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves If there is a memory leak, a weekly reset is at least a band aid yes? I’m no developer, just going off my knowledge, experience and talks with people who are more closer to or in Rare. Still speculation on the core issue though.

  • DavrimTV Davrim (@DavrimTV) reported

    @1Chenzo @ShoobieGamer @SeaOfThieves Theoretically that is how it should be. But if you notice the longer the update plays, you get more hit reg issues, more lag, more ships flying through the air, more dead servers with no players. Something is broken in the spin ups OR major memory leak issues in the code

  • DavrimTV Davrim (@DavrimTV) reported

    @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves Server hoping causes dead servers. So you load into a server with no boats and no merges. This is a known issue caused by server hoping. But when you have to hop to find events, PvP ect, it falls on development to fix / guide players to NOT do this

  • DavrimTV Davrim (@DavrimTV) reported

    @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves I would wait that long. They are owned by @Microsoft so there is no reason they should have funding or staffing issues to address their issues. If they can’t get it, who ever is in charge of making the business case is failing.

  • DavrimTV Davrim (@DavrimTV) reported

    @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves 1) Do a weekly server refresh to help your server health 2) dedicate 80% of your monthly updates to core fundamentals (server and combat) 3) go to quarterly content updates which are new and fresh not reused mechanics 4) fix match making - stop server hoping

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @DavrimTV @SeaOfThieves Yeah, but I think the problem with those is something that would require a larger time frame to fix. They're fundamental issues with the game engine/server, I suspect. Suppose they said it would take 4 to 5 months of no updates to find the bug and fix it - due to testing...

  • SilveredCup SilveredCup (@SilveredCup) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I won't be taking part. Rare refused to look over my previous issue redeeming the Ori ship, despite me doing everything correctly. I don't think they even read my ticket properly. What's even the point?

  • Iconoklasm1 iconoklasm (@Iconoklasm1) reported

    Why does everyone not talk about how well the game chat doesn’t work for Xbox players in @SeaOfThieves #SeaOfThieves ? Every creators content could be so much better. I’ve had it glitch and been able to hear in-game chat while in party. So why not?


    the new @SeaOfThieves update is straight to the point for sweats. its a fill in update that happened last year stop bitching nerds. btw the hacks oh baby #trustyoursotcom scrubs you all use some bullshit./ admit it fix the game and move on.

  • CallMeDemizle Kevin Petrowsky (@CallMeDemizle) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd Did ya'll fix the 'Grey Beard" issues yet? Cause literally the game has been dead not having the ability to join public lobbies the past few weeks!

  • Nvk_Zz DØKKØ 鬼 (@Nvk_Zz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves there is a glitch to disappear boats, please fix it

  • Nvk_Zz DØKKØ 鬼 (@Nvk_Zz) reported

  • hemi31 Brandon Payne-REAP3R31 (@hemi31) reported

    @SeaOfThieves having so many issues with the update, screen is flashing and spawn time after being killed takes forever, glitching so bad. Sorry but I don’t not pay a bunch of money for a game that has this many issues! I have over at $500 plus into this game with cosmetics.

  • killzone1401 Killzone1401 (@killzone1401) reported

    @stevent2002 @SeaOfThieves Again, the ship is more expensive than that, but that clearly isn’t the issue i have with it, i’m done with this conversation anyway as I’m basically repeating myself over and over again to somebody who clearly doesn’t want to listen.

  • tommydeeelive Broken Reality (@tommydeeelive) reported

    @TwiztidThorn @JonathanGiek @SeaOfThieves There is a good amount of timed items that are no longer available that you might/should have that new players don't. We also got story beats and events that new players will never experience. I have no problem them getting an incentive to buy the game

  • killzone1401 Killzone1401 (@killzone1401) reported

    @stevent2002 @SeaOfThieves As i said, i don’t have an issue with them giving away things to new players, but this kinda crosses the line, not only is it a kick in the ***** to those who spend money on the ship set, they are also giving away an improved version of the end game ship set.

  • stevent2002 Stevent2002 (@stevent2002) reported

    @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves but you dont have an issue with this ship set being unlocked for £20 in the emporium? i mean youre complaint is that new players can get a better version of the ghost cosmetics without the grind

  • killzone1401 Killzone1401 (@killzone1401) reported

    @stevent2002 @SeaOfThieves Yet again you are missing the point and calling me entitled when I haven’t even asked for anything, i’m fine with them giving things to new players such as a pet or something else, but i already explained multiple times why i have an issue with this ship set being free.

  • stevent2002 Stevent2002 (@stevent2002) reported

    @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves youre complaining that theyre giving players a ship set for free? i could just buy the ship on a new account and have it without grinding but you dont seem to have a problem with that. you seem a little entitled to me
