    @SeaOfThieves I've put in 2 tickets and they said that they are aware and trying to fix it thank you

  • HoovieTheFox 🦊 ✨Hoovie✨ 🦊 (@HoovieTheFox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SeaOfThieves I purchased my coins through the Microsoft store and still haven't received them. In addition whenever I open the store it still shows a "Store inventory is unavailable. Please try again later" error. Could I please get a bit of assistance. Cheers!

  • discordapp Discord (@discordapp) reported

    @RogueDoctor @SeaOfThieves So sorry for the trouble! We're aware of this issue with the Overlay and SoT, and are working on a solution, but no ETA for a fix at this time. 😢

  • Jared95585272 Jared (@Jared95585272) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I still can't join creator crew please fix I want to stream and share content

  • thechocmoojoo chocmoojoo (@thechocmoojoo) reported

    @BannanaToast @SeaOfThieves Yeah don’t think twitch has been having any issues, but I know mixer has, don’t think the issue is in SoT end, there are a ton of people love on mixer right now streaming. SoT

  • thechocmoojoo chocmoojoo (@thechocmoojoo) reported

    @BannanaToast @SeaOfThieves I know mixer has been having issues off and all day with not letting people go live

  • iOdin_Xbox iOdinKingofGods (@iOdin_Xbox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I cant wait for cross play opt out to go to adventure, every time I get bad hit reg its against pc players, when im vs other xbox players its fine and I have no problems with hit reg.

  • FrankyCaliberz Franky Caliberz (@FrankyCaliberz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves So there is a glitch going around to where if you enter a game on XBoxOne with a Key&Mouse you can’t hear anyone they can’t hear you!! However if you have a controller and start up a game like that then shut the controller off then turn on K&M the problem is solved..Weird

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @SayHeyRocco @SeaOfThieves @Yung_Taku @OldCaptainJay had this issue aswell

  • SlooperSolo Hivebuster Mac (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Errrrrr13379802 @CallMeBackdraft @SeaOfThieves @Captain_Falcore I don't have a problem with arena first, but the idea that it doesnt need it in adventure mode is just incorrect. Actually needs it more than Arena, because arena is a throwaway mode. Each session is only 20 mins and you're always gonna progress at least a little even in last

  • NebulaTales Assassin Squid & Nebula Tales (@NebulaTales) reported

    @HealPleaseHeal @Captain_Falcore @JESSETATTOO @JoeNeate1 @HubofThieves @SeaOfThieves @residentveg @Gamerboss @RareLtd @internalerror86 The biggest issue with YouTube is the fact that you can't browse current livestreams and filter by games anymore. Which is a shame because I decided to not support Twitch's double standards anymore... And I'm left with only Mixer as an alternative.

  • CrimsonNikki Nicole Post (@CrimsonNikki) reported

    My heart is broken and shattered, I lose my friend yesterday to a drunk driver @Wokk64 I miss you so much, all of our fun times on @SeaOfThieves I will carry on your legacy!!!!!!

  • PolskaKing1 Polska King (@PolskaKing1) reported

    @JPizzle133 @NayfePacewell @SeaOfThieves I hope they never fix your dance 🤣🤣🤣

  • Dracontious Dracontius 🔜 TwitchCon (@Dracontious) reported

    @SirLeigh @streamlabs @SeaOfThieves I'll eventually figure it out and send over my findings. This has always been an issue for games that don't have windowed fullscreen as an option.

  • SirLeigh SirLeigh (@SirLeigh) reported

    @Dracontious @streamlabs @SeaOfThieves Unfortunately, it seems like SOT is kind of a weird quirk when it comes to this. I wish there was an easy fix for you. Sorry I couldn't get it working exactly the way you want.

  • phoenix27775513 phoenix (@phoenix27775513) reported

    @SeaOfThieves there is a bug when you try to buy some coin my friend is trying to buy a pet but it won't go through can U please fix it thx phoenix

  • Cutoflee Manos (@Cutoflee) reported

    @Dal56542713 @punyweakling @SeaOfThieves @PaceYourself22 I appreciate and respect your effort here, but sadly I think these practices get more and more encouraged by the players themselves. If Rare was to show their earnings from the emporium so far your jaw would drop. Point the fingers at the real problem.

  • Syllviio_ Syllviio (@Syllviio_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @PaceYourself22 If only PvP got this much love, like a patch specified on fixing all of the problems with the combat. I feel like this whole “Creators Crew” thing is a cool idea but for some of the serious PvPers there isn’t really much motivation since the quality of PvP goes down every update.

  • Geek3rs Geek3rs 🎮🍕🎬 (@Geek3rs) reported

    @Dj_Redcap @zackatk77 @SeaOfThieves @Captain_Falcore @ThirstySeas They are still having a 503 ERROR.

  • Dj_Redcap Captain Redcap (@Dj_Redcap) reported

    @zackatk77 @SeaOfThieves @Captain_Falcore @Geek3rs @ThirstySeas I had problems last night also.

  • Extremejester Allan jonas (@Extremejester) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @PaceYourself22 how long till u resolve the store problems as i got your 50 dollar pack but no coins i wouldn't normally care but u took it from my bank and gave me nothing

  • Shinnonda 忍んんだ Shinnonda™ (@Shinnonda) reported

    @SeaOfThieves there's some kind of problem if the game account is different of the Mixer account i think, "Sorry, we could not link your Account."

  • BigCAviation Big C Aviation (@BigCAviation) reported

    @zackatk77 @SeaOfThieves @Captain_Falcore @Geek3rs @ThirstySeas @Dj_Redcap Getting the same problem

  • Geek3rs Geek3rs 🎮🍕🎬 (@Geek3rs) reported

    @zackatk77 @SeaOfThieves @Captain_Falcore @ThirstySeas @Dj_Redcap Yeah they are having issues.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @Tals_Tales @CallMeBackdraft @SeaOfThieves Ignoring a problem isn't a valid solution to most problems, friend.

  • Tals_Tales Shayne Wood (@Tals_Tales) reported

    @Dal56542713 @CallMeBackdraft @SeaOfThieves Its not a problem to most people. We have gotten free updates for well over a year now. How do people expect Rare to continue adding to the game when they are not getting revenue off of the game itself. Just buying the game cant sustain it forever.

  • AAUnlocked AllAchievementsUnlocked (@AAUnlocked) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support @XboxSupport Had issues with an Ancient Coins purchase, after asking for a refund they appeared. Tried to buy a few more, still taking my money, no Ancient Coins, and can't request a refund. Please advise.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @CallMeBackdraft @Tals_Tales @SeaOfThieves Your missing the point, friend. If you have to be constantly reminded of the micro-transactions (which their sheer presence alone does), That is a problem in a game you already paid for.

  • Kougeru Kou-chan (@Kougeru) reported

    @SeaOfThieves "failed to Link account" on both Mixer and Twitch. "Sea of Thieves" however, shows up on Twitch's "Connections" page. So the issue seems to be on your end...

  • Tals_Tales Shayne Wood (@Tals_Tales) reported

    @Dal56542713 @SeaOfThieves The microtransactions are completely optional, so if you dont like them, dont buy them. Problem solved. There are plenty of others who have no issue with this.

  • AutarkisMike Autarkis (@AutarkisMike) reported from York, England

    @Dal56542713 @SeaOfThieves It's been public knowledge since the beta that pets would be microtransactions, they are literally cosmetics and give no in game advantage. Considering that every single content update has been and will be entirely free I don't get what you're issue is

  • EGGamer_ EG Gamer (@EGGamer_) reported

    @DANNYonPC @SeaOfThieves @ADDISON396 Youtube will be tomorrow, they're having some problems.

  • EGGamer_ EG Gamer (@EGGamer_) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I already signed up! The assets are very cool! I hope that the forum gets fixed soon. Its giving 502 errors.

  • DardanosOfFate DardanosOfFate 🔜 TwitchCon (@DardanosOfFate) reported

    I keep getting a 'Server Error' when trying to access the @SeaOfThieves forums so I'm guessing there's some technical issues at the moment.

  • uk_mUm87 Chrissy Fulker (@uk_mUm87) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Someone else helped me fix the problem but thank you for the response

  • Syllviio_ Syllviio (@Syllviio_) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @Tart_Tee @SeaOfThieves I still find it funny how they removed DG combo because it could 1 shot someone and they keep 1 blunder, but it’s even better when 1 blunder wouldn’t be a problem if people had to actually hit you for the bullets to do damage.

  • Syllviio_ Syllviio (@Syllviio_) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @Tart_Tee @SeaOfThieves It’s just so frustrating to have to watch the PvP get stomped into the ground because the devs keep changing things when there isn’t a problem, the only good chance to PvP they have made was patching the double gun combo.

  • I_is_WILLiam Will (@I_is_WILLiam) reported

    @xStealthKitten @SeaOfThieves Just a glitch, log out, go back in... If you have a crew member of course.

  • cootiez1 Cootiez (@cootiez1) reported

    @WooDRowWillSON3 @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves @WatchMixer @MixerRetweeter @SmallStreamersC @SmallStreamersR @SeaOfThievesHQ It’s a glitch- barrels we have harpooned and have them angled to close to the boat when we move makes that sound 😂

  • WoundedVanity Ooh! Aaah! Ooh! (@WoundedVanity) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Come on guys. Stop playing this stupid game. It took me hundreds of hours to get my fill but when you realise there are so many other great games out there & there is so little time in our lives for fun you will see this is just a waste. Rare are amateurs. It’s always broken.

  • caitlynlopez25 caitlyn lopez (@caitlynlopez25) reported

    @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves fix this please its now been 2 days of me trying to buy a pet with the money in my microsoft account and nothing has happened i still am stuck with buffering for 20min every time i try...

  • Kyleia Kazsia the Rogue (@Kyleia) reported

    @Capt_Logun @SeaOfThieves I had xbox currency loaded, so no issues there.

  • SparbucksTV Sparbucks (@SparbucksTV) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @BoxyFresh_ @SeaOfThieves @SeaOfArena Windows update also shit on my stuff too, what I ended up doing to fix the in game mic issue was literally disabling all recording devices except my mic, because it just kept defaulting to some bs no matter what

  • jongrim13 Jon Howell (@jongrim13) reported

    @RealFPJr @SweetzThe @SeaOfThieves I have no idea if it was a glitch. I was say, sailing north. A wave came from the west, about the same size as my boat. Literally rolled me over.

  • Dangerboy4020 Dangerboy4020 (@Dangerboy4020) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @BoxyFresh_ @SeaOfThieves @SeaOfArena Voice chat has always been an issue on and off with this game.

  • caiovodopives Caio Vodopives (@caiovodopives) reported

    @SeaOfThieves please, fix a bug that every time that I join the game I have to select all my equipments (compass, etc...) again.

  • Axel123ax Axel Johansson (@Axel123ax) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @JoeNeate1 @Spammals You really need to stop making commendations reliant on other players, when there are no other players to rely on. This is the same problem as I have had and STILL have with the skeleton thrones, be one day late and you won´t have a chance to complete it. It's ridiculous.

    @SeaOfThieves fix the blunder

  • TheNinthSword CAMERON (@TheNinthSword) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I can buy coins just tells me there an error, try again

  • _nathanminer Nathan Miner (@_nathanminer) reported

    @HahaPete @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @residentveg @keeyaaaa @JoeNeate1 Not a problem. Their setting is no comms with non-friends. We all play in the same house, my daughter on an S, my son on the laptop, & myself on an X and we don’t use a headset. We also destroy almost all ships that engage us.

  • laynievee1076 Helana (@laynievee1076) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Nothing since I’ve tried 3 times to buy one and it’s booted me out, called CC company and it’s not an issue on their end.

  • Wetheshelly WeTheShelly (@Wetheshelly) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Trying to buy coins to buy a pet. But error for the last 2 days 😥

  • Bushxy Lex (@Bushxy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves ever since Pets Update, I have a glitch that I cannot use anything in my tools nor maps radial. I checked my Insider account and that's fine. Reset my controller to default settings and still cannot access. HELP!! I CANNOT play the game without access to wood etc

  • ConnorDowney8 Connor Downey (@ConnorDowney8) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Nothing because it’s broken and I can’t get a pet

  • JakaKotnik1 Jaka Kotnik (@JakaKotnik1) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I bought the game once and paid 60€ to play it, wont see me paying some extra stuff for a lame add-ons but I hope a lot of ppl will so you can develope the game further. But rather then cosmetics, fix the damn basics of the game like sword stun, sword reach, busy servers etc...
