  • MrHyperrion ! (@MrHyperrion) reported

    @TheNye_ @BL00DY_BLADEZz @ReloadingAmmo @SeaOfThieves Lol it has nothing to do with it being easy. That’s not my problem. My problem no fair fights.

  • T_Jerome_ BopBop (@T_Jerome_) reported

    @XxoptimusfinexX @JordanMalicious @chrisbarton999 @SeaOfThieves I have the same problem.. My crew doesn't play much anymore and when they do they are not much into Athena's quests. So I'm playing solo sloop pretty often, and it takes forever to finish an Athena's quest solo :/ (When you even manage to finish it)

  • MeatyMuttley MeatyMuttley (@MeatyMuttley) reported

    Thanks @SeaOfThieves for another haul ruined by double gun pc players, so much for the glitch being patched. Several hours wasted. Honestly tired of wasting as much time as it takes to do long tasks just for someone with a dominant advantage to scum there way to my loot. Gg rare

  • ItWasMeEli eli :( (@ItWasMeEli) reported

    @doctordefiant69 @SeaOfThieves yeah but i have such a bad laptop and i really want a good pc but money is an issue :(

  • charlittto charles (@charlittto) reported

    @Gnarfield_ @ToxikBones @BertonPierreLo1 @SeaOfThieves stop being a nonsense boot licker. The game punishes players just for not having the game on a certain date and never fixing this cultural problem, such as giving exclusive cosmetics to those watching an idiot ************ in the twitch.

  • TheLittleAtari Christmatari 🎄🐾 (@TheLittleAtari) reported

    @lukemorris10 @SeaOfThieves Update will fix it hopefully.

  • TheLittleAtari Christmatari 🎄🐾 (@TheLittleAtari) reported

    @lukemorris10 @SeaOfThieves I had 3 blue cursed skellies to kill, killed 5 or 6, it didnt register. Hoping its just a glitch.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @singharmaanbrar @SeaOfThieves Yeah, there’s skillys at all the forts. Just treasure at one, that’s the problem.

  • JakobBarken Hmmm (@JakobBarken) reported

    @SeaOfThieves also when i click "Raise a support request" i also get sent right back to the "known issues" tab

  • JakobBarken Hmmm (@JakobBarken) reported

    @SeaOfThieves when i try to connect my seaofthieves account to twitch prime i get directly sent to "Known issues during the sign up process on the website"

  • AndersonEller3 um alright then (@AndersonEller3) reported

    @SeaOfThieves the past 2 days me and my crew have encountered 3 skull forts that have had loot in them but once completed and opened the door the loot was gone... please fix :(

  • Shay1774 The Mad Beef (@Shay1774) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Is this update going to fix the cosmetic problems or is it still on going

  • BooperDooper25 SeaofThievesIsFun (@BooperDooper25) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Every time I update the insiders edition it reset my pirate andi have to create a new one can you please fix this bug

  • MaFortniteClipz Battle Royenzn (@MaFortniteClipz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I wish you'd just fix your equipment... 😪

  • Mad_Skull ☠ Mad Skull ☠ (@Mad_Skull) reported

    Sailed a few missions. Saw the glitched that's been haunting @SeaOfThieves where you have to constantly reselect my equipment is still bugging the game @RareLtd maybe fix this before releasing more stuff. It's kinda annoying.

  • bluesynge BlueSynge (@bluesynge) reported

    @Tals_Tales @SlooperSolo @g_play84 @Ewoody916 @SeaOfThieves I play on pc, and I play solo. I have the same issue when ganged up on by 3-4 player ships. Ofc! I am one v four. But sitting here complaining does me no good. I usually either try to out run and use my small ship advantage. Or I just scuttle and drown myself so they have 0 to do

  • Tals_Tales Talriaen (@Tals_Tales) reported

    @g_play84 @SlooperSolo @bluesynge @Ewoody916 @SeaOfThieves Glitch/Hacks -> Report them to both Xbox and Rare. They do have the scuttle option for a reason (Trust me i hate using it as much as the next guy. I am xbox player, and i deal with that too) But those who are spawn killing for 20 minutes are Griefing and should be reported

  • G_R_S_M_N Paul Neumann (@G_R_S_M_N) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I just lost everything because someone waited at an outpost. I was rowing towards the island and for some reason I got a blackscreen and I was spawned somewhere in the water around the outpost without dying or anything. fix your game this makes me wanna quit playing

  • MichaelLarner4 Nightlock451 (@MichaelLarner4) reported

    @DarthJahus @SeaOfThieves Except they also consistently fix bugs with each content update as well.. People complained when the game released with "no content" and now that they crank out content every dang month y'all wanna complain about that xD the bugs will be fixed.

  • naughty9 Alpha1906 (@naughty9) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Naw screw all that. I was trying to deliver a quest when one of these pricks decided to sink my crew. Boost power, glitch or whatever, I am going go straight for those green lights and remind them why they are ghost.

  • DarthJahus Jahus (@DarthJahus) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Last update was just 1 month ago. It's too soon to get a new one. There are bugs and glitches that have to be fixed first. Instead of 1 update per month, do 1 / 2 months and focus on bug fixes the other month. For eg., when we are 3 to play, 2 will always crash randomly.

  • Hawkzy23 Hawkzy 🎮 (@Hawkzy23) reported

    What a shitty time to play games. All these companies and none of them know how to develop. #ModernWarfare is unplayable, #ApexLegends has way too many bugs and broken characters, #Fortnite is boring. The only game i can apparently play and expect a decent time is #SeaOfThieves

  • kore_virus Kore Virus (@kore_virus) reported

    @JuanAGomezJr94 @kordakin @SeaOfThieves I sorta enjoyed that tho learning by trial and error and the laughs from that

  • gamerLlyP Lly P (@gamerLlyP) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd 2 days playing your game and I already know what is killing it and how to fix it: No Mic players are clearly killing the game. matchmaking for 30min+ just to find mic for all mic players. make Mic Only matchmaking option. done. solved.

  • oo_prentiss_oo Kat Prentiss (@oo_prentiss_oo) reported

    @Elemental909 @solusgraffiti @DJAutumn81 @SeaOfThieves It’s unfair that we’re focusing on the only advantage the sword has (which I agree needs to be addressed) while ignoring the obvious exploits that the insta kill double gun is. Quick 5 slash kills isn’t comparable to 1-2 punch of the DG glitch that was reintroduced

  • SYND1CATE_78 #GhostWhispererWannaBe (@SYND1CATE_78) reported

    @JIcpvp @SeaOfThieves Oh ya the bugs and the lack of giving a shit. No one gives a flying **** about putting a fire out with puck when there are so many other issues that need to be fixed

  • Tart_Tee Tart Tee (@Tart_Tee) reported

    @Rep_Raptor98 @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support @SeaOfArena Maybe in a few months, they will put it in the known issues section and then a few months after that they may or may not fix it.

  • Allgoldgaming Nick Angiolini (@Allgoldgaming) reported

    @SeaOfThieves it’s one thing spawning me hella far away from where I sank but it’s another by spawning me across the map and not even in the same biome this is a joke fix ship spawns

  • chris_tha_guy 👻Chris Cuellar🦄 (@chris_tha_guy) reported

    @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves Fix this fort bug did the fort and nothing like really

  • SYND1CATE_78 #GhostWhispererWannaBe (@SYND1CATE_78) reported

    @EpicSugarPlum @SeaOfThieves Sea of Thieves your game is broken with all the bugs. Instead of making puke put out fires work on your bug issues on both main game and insiders.

  • CoopaTroopa187 CoopaTroopa187 (@CoopaTroopa187) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Lol fixes puke on fire... Leaves arena broken... Makes sense

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @ragincrinz @BitTexas9 @Jrams307 @SeaOfThieves ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I’m sorry you feel that way. I just got good at running away. And don’t seem to have a problem. (And it seems to me, that I only have to run 20% of the time. The rest of the time, the other ships just sail on…)

  • SYND1CATE_78 #GhostWhispererWannaBe (@SYND1CATE_78) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix you game and all the bugs no one cares about gold

  • BobLabotte Bob Labotte (@BobLabotte) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I hit a guy the other day, then i couldn’t hit again and he started blasting me with like 5 sword hits one after the other. I hit him but then it doesn’t let me hit again like i missed and he can land 5 hits one after another. Thanks for the fix comin

  • novacooper72 Dylan Cooper (@novacooper72) reported

    @ragincrinz @SeaOfThieves It's called "Sea of Thieves." The whole game is built around pvp and the fact that anyone can just come along to sink you and take your stuff. If you can't accept that then you're better off playing a different game. I had the problem when I first played but I accepted it.

  • ramazangecu Ramzen (@ramazangecu) reported

    @SeaOfThieves i'm getting "Beatnikbeard" error all the time, i was able to play before, now i can't join anyone :(

  • DisThoughts DisThoughts (@DisThoughts) reported

    @minimemarclee @Jrams307 @ragincrinz @SeaOfThieves Well, yes, it's a pirate game, but that's not an excuse for not admitting the problem. My sister just started playing. Someone killed her immediately. In the tutorial. While she was working out the graphics settings. She couldn't return to tutorial. That shouldn't happen.

  • MrFawlout Fiery Fawlout (@MrFawlout) reported

    @DEM0N_XIII @SeaOfThieves Same, my issue is I’d rather just save short clips instead of streaming

  • KibbsJ Kibbs (@KibbsJ) reported

  • therealbobby9 danny farmer (@therealbobby9) reported

    @SeaOfThieves for the love of God fix the AI this game is so not fun every time I dig up a chest there is five shitty AI That I Have to kill it’s not fun

  • damnigoes damnigoes (@damnigoes) reported

    @SacrediKon @SeaOfThieves Not interested in PVP, the game has a very fun adventure mode and pve that's worth playing a lot. I get jumped on every day, there isn't a session I play where I don't find anyone, otherwise I'd never have any problem while on my pve missions.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @DalePorter9001 @SeaOfThieves @SpecialEffect Sounds like… ping issues or something.

  • BlownBoats BlownBoats 🇦🇺 (@BlownBoats) reported

    @NayfePacewell See that is just lame. A few shotgun pellets go through like the ship is made of paper, yet at the very same moment a massive cannonball hits and does nothing, the ship is reinforced steel! FIX PLEASE @Seaofthieves

Those first 3 pictures and that message at the bottom. I (CM - Captain Moses) didn't tweet them and I fear that something or someone is coming now freed and will soon emerge out of the darkness to join this Evil.

    @LordHighFixxer @SeaOfThieves It means I have stopped playing games I have loved but the over all benefit has outweighed the love hate issues in a single game

  • WarmGlassOfMayo warmglassofmayo (@WarmGlassOfMayo) reported

    @dirtnap372 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves I beat PC players all the time I don’t see a problem

  • rederz13 rederz13 (@rederz13) reported

    @dirtnap372 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves They won't do it because the population is too low... only problem is that they are losing a lot of xbox players for this reason so the numbers will keep dropping. Probably better off just accepting it will never happen lol

  • Hammy_Hamster Hammy (@Hammy_Hamster) reported

    @dirtnap372 @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves The PC abuse has been a problem since day one, it is totally maddening but Rare does not care.
