    @Callum54748255 @stordyr @SeaOfThieves Oh fair enough. But its unintended then? I dont have the need to do anymore athena runs so i had no idea about the issue. Thank you for clarifying

  • Mobbster54 Mobbster (@Mobbster54) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I finished every challenge in the fishing event it shows a check by every one of them but is counting me one short on the event total to earn the hunters hero title. Please fix this I worked hard on this event.

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves Hopefully more good than bad, I personally dread updates with the issues that come in but we'll see. I'm not playing for a little while

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @DaggerMcTimbers @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves Frustration is held with a lot of the community & fair enough saying all the devs don't care might be wrong but when you put bug report in & they fall on deaf ears or you get a silly excuse of a reply & see the issues get worse... then on top of that you see nothing but

  • Callum54748255 Callum (@Callum54748255) reported

    @glermzz @stordyr @SeaOfThieves There’s a glitch at the moment that’s making athena rep way harder to get, it only was introduced around a month or so ago. That’s what he’s on about, he’s right about it taking too long to reach grade V recently.

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves Yeah I feel a break is necessary to be fair especially when the fun goes & you are only ever left being frustrated. I took a little break a few month ago for a couple weeks & it did the world of good but I'm hoping to see issues fixed & maybe take a big of a break

  • PcflWtrs Tasha s (@PcflWtrs) reported

    @Zero_ToIerance @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves I had this same issue last night with someone. I tried explaining that pve & pvp servers didn’t kill pvp ok wow or any other game. I was told that if we both spent $ time effort my items were no less valid simply cause I didn’t attacked for them.

  • BPetz29 Bobby Petz (@BPetz29) reported

    @SlooperSolo @jake_deg @SeaOfThieves We know what pvevp is bud just no fun what? They gonna beat the boss first and somehow get all the loot? Or what can’t steal it from people as they pick it up and run to their boat... go play animal crossing, no one is going to give you any problems there.

  • DeadeyeDavid20 David (@DeadeyeDavid20) reported

    @Lukathy95 @SeaOfThieves My MAIN issue however, just pure emporium updates and “events” that are things I’ve done over 100 times. That just bugs me a bit

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves I get for a lot these issues wont/don't affect them much but what I don't understand is why it shouldn't be a balanced game for all sides? Why is it a "ah you are just moaning" when it comes to the PvP side wanting actual issues fixed. (I'm not saying you said that personally)

  • General_Rob_ Robert (@General_Rob_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves is the servers down... it just kicked me out and wouldn’t let me back in

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @BPetz29 @jake_deg @SeaOfThieves You ignore that not everything would be possible in PVE servers, some things obviously woudlnt make sense like FOTD and such. I see no issue with letting everyone choose how they want to play

  • XelKthaan 🌙Xel'kthaan (@XelKthaan) reported

    Yikes my first 2 minutes playing @SeaOfThieves and I got told to not play, and disconnect. Great new player experience.

  • luis21754423 luis (@luis21754423) reported

    @SeaOfThieves FIX YOUR SEVERS

  • TopcowRaven TopcowRaven (@TopcowRaven) reported

    @XboxSupport @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves I can’t seem to purchase ancient coins packs. Trying to get the frozen sales pack before it ends in 1 day. Is there an issue with the store? Thanks!

  • Zero_Demon_King Zero, The Broken (@Zero_Demon_King) reported

    @ChimneySwift11 @SeaOfThieves No problem, here is another tip: If you have loot on your ship and you sink, the loot has 5 minute timer before it sinks.

  • JuniperRex 📸Juniper Rex📸 (@JuniperRex) reported

    @SeaOfThieves It's kind of a smaller glitch, but it's annoying, everytime me and my crew get hit by an anchor ball the pink ghost effect stays on the capstan until our ship sinks, is there any way this could be fixed?

  • DaggerMcTimbers Captain Daggers McTimbers 🗡 (@DaggerMcTimbers) reported

    @Lukathy95 @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves Do you not understand that a <200 person studio working on 2 IPs in the middle of a global pandemic can't do everything? They get told "Make new content" or "Fix bugs" As someone who lives with one of these lazy devs, they do care about the game. They can't make everyone happy


    @SeaOfThieves All you have to do is fix hit reg. That’s it. I don’t understand how this is still a thing.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Sammys_stuff @SeaOfThieves Why not? All the time I hear them talk about how they hate chasing people who run, (often because they just arent into pvp at all) and a server full of pvp players should solve that issue.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Jake50500818 @zOConnxr @SeaOfThieves I've been playing for 3 years kiddo, and pvping along the way, I even like the pvp, broken and unbalanced as it is. I've enjoyed the game for 3 years, don't assume this is for me, its for all the players who dont really get to choose how they want to play.

  • birdsurvivor1 driB (@birdsurvivor1) reported

    @MTHREMIX @SeaOfThieves The fact that they´ve been working on it for Months means its not an easy Fix

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves & sadly the PvP aspect is getting shunned while they just cater to the PvE side which to be honest is also having issues, especially the new Merchant quests

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Sammys_stuff @SeaOfThieves I agree that its fun, thats why i've enjoyed the game for 3 years, you're not telling me anything I dont know. Problem is its not fun for everyone and I dont see the problem with actually letting them choose how to play too.

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @DaggerMcTimbers @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves I do understand but at the same time these issues have been on going for way longer than the pandemic has been around

  • NoodleSot Noodle (@NoodleSot) reported

    @Lukathy95 @SeaOfThieves Yea ino. I will always mostly side with the PvP community aprt from people who use game broken exploits but usually well no it is the PvE community who complain the most and are the most toxic on the seas

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Sammys_stuff @SeaOfThieves Its like you completely ignored the part about this idea that not everything could be done on pve only and also that it would require playing on PVEVP to be incentivized. Its totally possible to have both and whats the problem if a server had all pvp?

  • hlviii67_howard Howard Halverson (@hlviii67_howard) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Hmm this is great just wondering if it’s going to be like the last two riddled with issues because of overloaded servers. Hopefully not.

  • hocka56 Mysterious Stranger (@hocka56) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I hope this fix my game

  • Lukathy95 Luke Morris (@Lukathy95) reported

    @NoodleSot @SeaOfThieves I'm glad you managed to do them! I really do want to hold on hope & like many other thing if it happens I'll give credit where credit is due bit right now the issues are far too frustrating for me to play. A break from it can never be harmful though right?!
