  • SillyV1sion SillyVision 👻 Ghost Vtuber (@SillyV1sion) reported

    @SeaOfThieves If the next update doesn't address the glaring problems with this PvP system, then this system is going to die like arena. Constant hit reg, food reg, matching making dog crap, supplies, blunder bombs frame drops, etc. This is going to kill your gamemode real quick.

  • phantom_sailer phantom (@phantom_sailer) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I’m sorry but if there’s anything you need to fix its players going up against players that do not match their skill level and fix the increased allegiance requirement for any levels past 100 You have a curse that unlocks at level 1,000 how are people supposed to get that now?

    12/9 I was banned on @SeaOfThieves for the reason "Background detection of account blocking,Redbeard". I can prove that this ban is totally wrong.I've played for 5 years,banned of a 5-minute login on a friend's computer. @SoT_Support

  • AlexL0519 Alexandru Carjan (@AlexL0519) reported

    @SeaOfThieves There are issues affecting services...

  • MroHairAir O Hair (@MroHairAir) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Didn’t even have to get in the game to know there was gonna be issues. keep them coming sot.

  • Envixtiy Lucas Mercer (@Envixtiy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I think the matchmaking times are alright I’ve only had an issue a couple times with it taking longer then expected but overall I was very impressed with how well they worked

  • deceasednine Deceasednine (@deceasednine) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I have no issue with the matchmaking time. I have the issue of having 27 sinks and being in a battle with people who are already level 100

  • Zeus_LDN Danny (@Zeus_LDN) reported

    Matchmaking times are killing me 😭 allow factions to fight each other and it will solve the problem #SeaOfThieves @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support

  • EastonAbel2 Easton Abel (@EastonAbel2) reported

    @BuckoBuckner @SeaOfThieves From my understanding, YES, the mystery is completely over. Although, some people say that there is or was a way to glitch past the wall and look around in the rooms.

  • D_Adam_Fox Adam Fox (@D_Adam_Fox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix the HourGlass Queuing Times🙏

  • GalatanuRafael Andrei Rafael (@GalatanuRafael) reported

    @_Rakton @SeaOfThieves @BoxyFresh_ Had the same problem was chasing some guys for 1 hour and half, felt like a waste of time so i scuttled the ship, thay need to make somthin be decisive after 30 min

  • KoalaaaaGrlie Koala (@KoalaaaaGrlie) reported

    @BuckoBuckner @SeaOfThieves And going to add that the glitch is only to skip the part of completing the shrine to get to this door. You are not able to glitch past this door.

  • SoulGobeur FOU Soulgobeur (@SoulGobeur) reported

    @Wermux @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd fix this please

  • monopolyman_sot Monopolyman SOT (@monopolyman_sot) reported

    @JacobPlayz_ @SeaOfThieves This is a really good point and would have to fix the speed for sure!

  • viiraxetv viiraxe (@viiraxetv) reported

    @thepwnking101 @SeaOfThieves That’s like saying give a PVE away to earn Arena cosmetics (when Arena was out). There are commendations and cosmetics I won’t achieve because I don’t PVE enough, and there are ones you won’t achieve if you don’t PVP enough. Why is that such an issue for people to accept?

  • Tim_AZ_ Tim (@Tim_AZ_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Does it keep track of all the times we had to kill ourselves to fix the radial issue that Rare refuses to acknowledge?

  • ItsJustJoe42 ItsJustJoe (@ItsJustJoe42) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I’m not the only one there’s already a couple YouTubers pointing out these issues

  • gaming_4nj4 @gaming_4nj4 (@gaming_4nj4) reported

    @SeaOfThieves For everyone complaining about issues: are you calling your phone provider each year on New Year’s Eve to complain about service not available at midnight? 🤔

  • mbl666uk MBL666 (@mbl666uk) reported

    @Evilslither1 @VenomousGO @SeaOfThieves That’s how it currently works …. But apparently they are alliances exploiting that ‘winner stays on’ …If these alliances are in breach of existing rules ….. would having both ships migrating server fix it….. or just punish those with the ‘tools not rules’ elements of the game

  • NoahKel06918695 Owlington (@NoahKel06918695) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @Fiensonix Load time fix?

  • CapnTatermilk Captain Tater (@CapnTatermilk) reported

    @TheLameXGamer @SeaOfThieves @BoxyFresh_ Most people don't get paid to sit there and chat. As I said, it highlights a problem with PVP runners. Focus.

  • DeadMansSquid Davy Jones (@DeadMansSquid) reported

    @SeaOfThieves could you maybe also fix the issue of supplies while you guys are on it? Like while gathering supplies for a big fight is fine it feels like sinking, losing all of them, and therefore not being able to jump right back into matchmaking is really what's killing it for some people

  • RafinhaSidney rafa (@RafinhaSidney) reported

    @SeaOfThieves there are some issues 🙃

  • MkultraTuskegee MKUltra Tuskegee (@MkultraTuskegee) reported

    @SeaOfThieves aaand, of course, it's broken.

  • MeMoreHuman Matthew Human (@MeMoreHuman) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix wait times?

  • ItsJustJoe42 ItsJustJoe (@ItsJustJoe42) reported

    @SeaOfThieves That’s cool. But this new gamemode is gonna be dead within weeks if y’all don’t do something about the issues. Having to resupply for 40 minutes just to fight and lose again sucks, also sbmm literally doesn’t work anymore since probably 90% of all players are already gone.

  • harping16 harping (@harping16) reported

    @SeaOfThieves hope U've seen BoxyFresh 5+ hours stream today-A rule that needs 2 change N UR new PVP fighting if one quits.1 boat doesn't fight-only runs even after 5+ hours-that's how they've been CHEATING-leveling up by not fighting so other crews quits&problem boat get credit for it-

  • Coel03 Dave (@Coel03) reported

    @TheApps_ @SeaOfThieves They did the same thing last year. And many old quests are broken and no longer function.

  • HobeJoshua Joshua Hobé (@HobeJoshua) reported

    @SeaOfThieves "There are issues affecting services" it wouldn't be you guys without messing it up AGAIN

  • ToyoDesu_SoT Captain Toyo ~ Servant of fearless freedom (@ToyoDesu_SoT) reported

    @MadEyeMuldo @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support Really? I don't think any of my four opponents left the game but I'm not sure either 😐 It's really annoying if that's the problem
