Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • IguanaMilo MiloTheIguana (@IguanaMilo) reported

    my brain would melt if @SeaOfThieves didnt lag like my xbox was in a microwave

  • JoshuaWoodcraft Joshified (@JoshuaWoodcraft) reported

    @JosembergN @XboxSupport @SeaOfThieves Rebooted router, UPNP is turned on, all services are up based on the console companion app. Tried turning off firewall. Rebooting router. Same deal. I believe it’s an external issue to my network.

  • JoshuaWoodcraft Joshified (@JoshuaWoodcraft) reported

    @JosembergN @XboxSupport @SeaOfThieves I’m playing on PC haha. Had no issues last night playing on my Xbox One X. This is an Xbox live connectivity issue based on the error code, which PC still uses as it is cross play.

  • itzfknfortunxz fortunxz (@itzfknfortunxz) reported

    Please fix the ADS bug literally every time I ADS it just gets stuck and I either have to switch guns or just spam right click and it screws up my shots and not being able to pull out food. @RareLtd @JoeNeate1 @SeaOfThieves

  • JoshuaWoodcraft Joshified (@JoshuaWoodcraft) reported

    @XboxSupport @SeaOfThieves Have been getting "Alabasterbeard" errors for the past hour and cannot get onto a Sea of Thieves server. Nothing wrong with my connection as everything else is working fine.

  • Moorhen66 Dan Bache (@Moorhen66) reported

    @SeaOfThieves are you having server issues today as the lag and black screens are absolutely terrible

  • kulrich74 rev74 (@kulrich74) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @pyromaker22 Please fix the long load screens.. took me 25 minutes to load in.

  • CaptGGstache CaptainGGstache (@CaptGGstache) reported

    @M3meSaurusRex @davidramon20 @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support @JasonRCross It’s the shrouded storm. It’s very annoying but I guess we will have to wait for them to fix it

  • Guillau18462262 Guillaume B (@Guillau18462262) reported

    @SeaOfThieves For the record, if you have set your Xbox on « sailing with Xbox only » then your pc game will fail to connect with AlabasterBeard, which is rather misguiding if you ask me. « Unable to connect to server» on a PC when the only « problem » is a configured option on another device

  • LovelyIrishAlan LovelyIrishAlan (@LovelyIrishAlan) reported

    @DatedRhyme @SeaOfThieves There’s power coming from the mains so the issue isn’t there. Need to test the power cord to make sure that’s still supplying juice. After that it’s most likely a PSU problem.

  • GradXD Grad (@GradXD) reported

  • Skynet_187 Skynet (@Skynet_187) reported

    @FartyMartyMole @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Just tried and same issue here!

  • RamjattanDylan Dylan ramjattan (@RamjattanDylan) reported

    @SeaOfThieves server down wake up 👍

  • AlastorDougal Duncan McRae (@AlastorDougal) reported

    Threads about PvE have proven that a lot of people are on both sides of this issue, so I don't think PvP Adventure would suffer. There are a lot of people who'd voluntarily stick to it. And they wouldn't have to deal with people whining about losing fights anymore! #SeaOfThieves

    @SeaOfThieves @DesignByHumans I’ll buy a new shirt if you fix my cosmetics and emotes resetting after every game session. Thanks 🙏

  • SeraphMatrix SeraphMatrix (@SeraphMatrix) reported

    Hey #GlitchZone I wish to apologize for the lack of streams this week. I really became ill with migraines on top of my leg issues. Then I had a work related situation come up. I am really hoping to be able to keep this Saturday’s @SeaOfThieves stream, as always keep an eye here.

  • KerryKittles Steven B (@KerryKittles) reported

    @SeaOfThieves really needs to fix the load times. Whether it’s from a mermaid or from the Damned. Takes forever

    @SeaOfThieves The lag on the game on xbox only servers is currently appalling and sometimes unplayable. Please fix this. Thankyou

  • Alexander_SR Alexander Serrano (@Alexander_SR) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support I’m having problem to connect (error: obsidianbeard)... (platform: Xbox)

  • _LarZen_ LarZen 🇳🇴 (@_LarZen_) reported

    @AyeofReach @SeaOfThieves The problem with more casual players that tries SoT on console is that they probably don’t know what cross play even means. Because what it means is your at a disadvantage against others. But with the benefit of playing with others friends on PC.

  • Nemesis2K Nemesis2K (@Nemesis2K) reported

    @SeaOfThieves No idea, I can’t keep them equipped with the new bug. I paid money for these, fix your game or refund me.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Plecotuz @lukemorris10 @Autarkis84 @DaggerMcTimbers @MerrowMan1 @SeaOfThieves Same guy has some made up story about me too, that I was banned from twitter (left on my own accord to focus on work) due to threatening joe neate (lol, no never happened). Hes got some issues.

  • I_is_WILLiam Will (@I_is_WILLiam) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Please fix the lag issues on your servers. It's making the game almost unplayable. It is NOT on my end.

  • 1Thezucc TheZucc (@1Thezucc) reported

    @TheeB_Ry @louiscarman23 @jiderindustries @SeaOfThieves The biggest issue is we have nothing to do as Athena 10 now

  • Dino412 D1NO (@Dino412) reported

    @WaTsNoTgUdD @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 It’s currently in the Known Issues in the patch notes mate.

  • VampKiwi VampKiwi (@VampKiwi) reported

    @CaptGGstache @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd So nice to find someone who understands my problems

  • Cryztalzone Cryztalzone (@Cryztalzone) reported

    @SeaOfThieves The Blunder is ridiculous. We've just had a fight, Brig vs Brig, where we got continuously noscoped by the Blunder. Meanwhile all three of us hit the same players, over and over, not killing them, while they killed us oneshot on first sight. Finally fix this thing!

  • WaTsNoTgUdD WaTs (@WaTsNoTgUdD) reported

    @Dino412 @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 according to the patch notes from this update (Legends of the Sea) the cosmetic bug should no longer be an issue as I dont see it in the "known issues" section
