    @ChappersChapman @SeaOfThieves NEVER confuse video game action with real life action. There is not enough bananas to fix stupid.

    @SeaOfThieves Nevermind looks like inventory still broken

  • Scylliax Skrill (@Scylliax) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I don’t know about anyone else but the item change glitch is still happening to me

  • jmkeefer JM Keefer (@jmkeefer) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Okay, so now fix the bugs that have been there since day one! I still see people as skeletons with no cloths, ship still sinks into the ocean, major delay when sword fighting... etc.

  • AyeofReach Aye of Reach (@AyeofReach) reported

    @EpicSugarPlum @SeaOfThieves It's not really a solution to being spawn killed. If someone fires onto your ship then kills you the "problems" still there.

  • DenGodeHauge Johannes Hauge Sjöstrand (@DenGodeHauge) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix the loading screen time. PLEASE, it’s so frustating.

  • CallMeDemizle Kevin Petrowsky (@CallMeDemizle) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I just hope they fix some of the bugs. The game is totally fun, and would be more exciting with some of the issues being fixed. I still play, even though I'm frustrated every time I get into a lobby and my pirate legend title doesnt pop up.

  • MisterGuitoon Guitoon (@MisterGuitoon) reported

    @ShadowOpsFN @taffrr @SeaOfThieves Me too Fluffybeard error when I confirm my crew

  • MisterGuitoon Guitoon (@MisterGuitoon) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I can't access to the game even now. I have the Fluffybread error when I confirm the crew.

  • taffrr Joshua (@taffrr) reported

  • SpycyB Spycy B (@SpycyB) reported

    @iShroudey @daemonic_616 @rederz13 @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport And if you look waaaay up through the comments you'll see the tweet I wrote about there being some form of compromise to playing on a pve server. I can't see why gold gain would be an issue but rep gain, sure.

  • ShadowOpsFN ShadowOpsFN (@ShadowOpsFN) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Your servers are still broken

  • TheNic03XD Nicolas0303 (@TheNic03XD) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I see you re doing some work for arena but what about changing the game joining system. Everytime I wanna play arena I have to stay in the tavern for 4 min to end up alone on my sloop. Just let me join somenone who is already playing and facing the same issue

  • MattyClaxton82 Matty 🕱🎸🤘🕱 (@MattyClaxton82) reported

    @SeaOfThieves SALTYBEARD Error

  • SpycyB Spycy B (@SpycyB) reported

    @daemonic_616 @iShroudey @rederz13 @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport It's not just griefers. The problem is different players have different ways they want to play and players like shroudy are too selfish to see that.

  • iShroudey 𝓢𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓭𝓮𝔂 (@iShroudey) reported

    @stamrehn @rederz13 @SpycyB @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport They do. YOU are the only person that fears sharks more bro lol, just because you have that mindset, doesn't mean everyone else does, if they did, pvp wouldn't be an issue.

  • iShroudey 𝓢𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓭𝓮𝔂 (@iShroudey) reported

    @stamrehn @rederz13 @SpycyB @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport Unless you're 500 miles away from your ship/land and have no food on you, you shouldn't really be dying to sharks, and if you are, well there's a different issue there, and it's not the shark.

  • iShroudey 𝓢𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓭𝓮𝔂 (@iShroudey) reported

    @SpycyB @rederz13 @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport The game is what the devs want it to be. That's why the game is what it is. The game isn't what YOU want it to be. That's why you have an issue with it. The devs aren't on twitter complaining about pvpers ruining their game.

  • iShroudey 𝓢𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓭𝓮𝔂 (@iShroudey) reported

    @rederz13 @SpycyB @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport I just closed the game, opened the microsoft store, and now the update is downloading, think that's the issue if you are also on PC

  • thejeffster21 Jeffrey Scoggins (@thejeffster21) reported

    @SeaOfThieves why cant I play fix ur game

  • AdmiralAxios Admiral_Axios (@AdmiralAxios) reported

    @EmericaNow @SeaOfThieves @Hitbotc Not a problem!

  • NightfaII13 Nightfall13 (@NightfaII13) reported

    @Sekkosakk @SeaOfThieves They can track all that but still cant fix the equipment glitch...

  • euanwarframe euan johnson (@euanwarframe) reported

    @SeaOfThieves are the servers down for the update or is my game broken #SeaOfThieves

  • SpycyB Spycy B (@SpycyB) reported

    @1Chenzo @iShroudey @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport I don't play the game any more. I won't until there are pve servers. If that never happens then I won't play it again. No problem for me, plenty of other games to play.

  • UnDeadTonto Tom Britt (@UnDeadTonto) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I ran it day 1(didn't count), day 4 after the hot fix(didn't count), then finally again after 3 weeks when my friends and I finally had the time to try it( then it finally counted) but I know others ran it a lot more than we did for 0 credit towards the commendations.

  • _andre169_ ✞Andre✞ (@_andre169_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves pls fix them servers I wanna play the new update

  • mc_meiler mc_meiler (@mc_meiler) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix the damn servers or else

  • mrbellek Merijn 👨‍💻 (@mrbellek) reported

    @Sekkosakk @SeaOfThieves They have said before that tracking was completely broken before, so people clearing forts wasn't saved at all. Otherwise you'd have had your fort clears added retroactively, I assume.

  • BlakeButton blake button (@BlakeButton) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @AlactarGaming Having trouble joining to game after update anyone else having issues

  • nofussofficial Andy Tomin (@nofussofficial) reported

    @SeaOfThieves hey guys. I keep getting LavanderBeard error, but im on xbox. I have no idea how to log in because it says the servers are up and running. I only got this after the update.

  • NUROKHOWLER Nurok Howler (@NUROKHOWLER) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @pcgamer Too bad the achievement for doing all of said fishing is still broken

  • iShroudey 𝓢𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓭𝓮𝔂 (@iShroudey) reported

    @JIcpvp @SpycyB @SeaOfThieves @XboxSupport It's funny because you really do think you're right, and yet the game is a pirate game and has PvP, so I guess you're not as right as you wish you were :L If you're older than me, and have been gaming as long as me, PvP wouldn't be an issue to you.

  • fugdissheet Nice (@fugdissheet) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Imagine taking your servers down for 6 hours in the middle of the day 😂 and some people paid $60 for the game

  • Capt_Vicarious Mike Sillaman (@Capt_Vicarious) reported

    @rederz13 @SeaOfThieves Speed is key. Definitely. And no room for error. My 42 year old hands are getting arthritic, and it's easy to slip up here and there tossin' buckets o' water...lmao🤣🤣🤣

  • AceeTeam Team Acee (@AceeTeam) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix alliances please, just lost a whole fort of the dammed raid to a crew full of tryhards that made an alliance with us. 70k and like 2 hours work gone... something needs done....

  • bewickuk Jamie (@bewickuk) reported

    @SeaOfThieves If the equipment glitch isn't fixed I'm gunna be screwing.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @Capt_Vicarious @SeaOfThieves I don’t think it’s going to be that big of a problem. (Not any more than any of the cursed cannon *****.) Sloops sink slow enough that you’ll have time to ***** the flames.

  • EpicSugarPlum EpicSugarPlum (@EpicSugarPlum) reported

    @MrHyperrion @SeaOfThieves Servers will be broken and commandations won't be counting, I'm in no hurry

  • urukhaigalleon Richard Matthews (@urukhaigalleon) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @pcgamer Fix the lightning please. It’s horrendous trying to catch storm fish at the minute!

  • EpicSugarPlum EpicSugarPlum (@EpicSugarPlum) reported

    @AyeofReach @BLU3S65 @XFlyer_ @SgtGrogDog68 @OlivvesofReach @SirWize @Tals_Tales @SeaOfThieves It's the issue, I can't fight back because pc has advange over me,

  • WaTsNoTgUdD WaTs (@WaTsNoTgUdD) reported

    @BLU3S65 @SlooperSolo @MrHyperrion @1Chenzo @HarryRektEm @SeaOfThieves @Xbox But when you play against PC it becomes a problem

  • BLU3S65 Team Rum Dumbs (@BLU3S65) reported

    @WaTsNoTgUdD @SlooperSolo @MrHyperrion @1Chenzo @HarryRektEm @SeaOfThieves I have zero problem in Arena when I play with @Xbox players.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @WaTsNoTgUdD @MrHyperrion @1Chenzo @BLU3S65 @HarryRektEm @SeaOfThieves That doesnt make you special, we've all killed PC players too, but doing so doesnt mean we're not at a disadvantage, nobody is saying pc is invincible, just that the margins for error are slimmer for Xbox players.

  • JakescapeAU Jake (@JakescapeAU) reported

    @chris_wilson21 @SeaOfThieves I've been asking for something for 2 weeks, 2 incredibly important things and they are yet to even mention it being a problem. They don't care and no form of comms are available to them to get help

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @Danielwildish2 @SeaOfThieves Sometimes, when the door doesn’t open, it’s a visual glitch. Try just walking through the closed door.

  • Danielwildish2 Daniel wildish (@Danielwildish2) reported

    @SeaOfThieves can you please fix the respawn times, I was doing a fort but now I've been waiting 5 mins for the ferry of the damned to load in

  • Remilution reliDRONE (@Remilution) reported

    @ItzXVII @SeaOfThieves The issue with larger boats is that the lobbies only support a small amount of players right now. In order to bring in a larger boat they will have to do a lot of changes to the server itself. I'm not saying it's not possible, but I wouldn't expect it anytime soon

  • killzone1401 Killzone1401 (@killzone1401) reported

    @HarryRektEm @SeaOfThieves I never get attacked during tall tales, this just seems like a you problem, its still a pirate game so you should always expect to encounter unfriendly people.

  • XFlyer_ #ReleaseTheSnyderCut (@XFlyer_) reported

    @EpicSugarPlum @SeaOfThieves You have to remember you can't fix stupid @EpicSugarPlum

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @HarryRektEm @MrHyperrion @SeaOfThieves Yeah, but the threat is other pirates. I do a bit of solo slooping too, you just gotta not let them get close (And definitely not let them board.) Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean it’s broken.

  • kore_virus Kore Virus (@kore_virus) reported

    @PlaidKnuckles @NilOggier @XboxGamePass @TheInitiative @Xbox @TacomaGame @SeaOfThieves It is semi unique, There is that learning curve. Then never ends to learn, Your experience is the actual level up, by trial and error. All are equal except for knowing what to do

  • StarWuzerd StarWuzerd (@StarWuzerd) reported

    @chris_wilson21 @SeaOfThieves Buddy, you are not the only person experiencing this, literally everyone is being affected and the issue is much more complex than you may think. It's already been confirmed that the issue will be fixed in the next update.

  • YoduChaos Yo Games (@YoduChaos) reported

    @chris_wilson21 @SeaOfThieves It's a more complex issue than it seems, they working on it since several weeks now, don't worry. It will be fixed soon.

  • BrayanS55447907 Brayan Soto (@BrayanS55447907) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I got my friend into the game. he had never played. We grinded out a quest for two hours just to die and our ship be sunk. He uninstalled the game. This is your problem. Let me play the game as is without the unfairness. A full galleon vs a sloop and a newbie. Fun..

  • KatTruewalker Kat Truewalker (@KatTruewalker) reported

    @DJ_ZMB @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support It's a known issue and being worked on, mentioned in the latest patch notes, hopefully a fix coming soon!

  • XFlyer_ #ReleaseTheSnyderCut (@XFlyer_) reported

    @EpicSugarPlum @SeaOfThieves Yep and commadation won’t work. The Talk Tail will be broken, dablooms won’t be accounted for, the lag will be a hit pile of wet garbage, people will be trying to get there shit done but can’t because if toxics ass hols andnthere ******* fire bombs. That about some it up.
