    @SeaOfThieves the lantern at krakens fall for the Fate of the Morningstar is glitched! Fix this now!

  • BlownBoats BlownBoats🇦🇺 (@BlownBoats) reported

    @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd My American buddies are having a lot of complaints about lag when we’re in there, even when they’re on relatively good ping (40ish). I think this problem goes deeper, look at the frame rates on player animations in the arena lobby. Something ain’t right

  • DILLIGAFAU1 SeaDogDilli (@DILLIGAFAU1) reported

    @lukemorris10 @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves Our government went back and forth with prices and the best options and (vote for me we'll put in this fibre optic crud) And most of it all wasnt specified as to where and how much will be replaced. Internet service providers here in Australia are making Millions off us.

  • BaronBrr BaronBrr (@BaronBrr) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I can report a bug or glitch with the storm cloud that causes the game (or at least my game) that cause the game to freeze before crashing the entire program. I can't raise a support ticket because I don't have an Xbox live account (pc player)

  • Derektionz DerektionZ (@Derektionz) reported

    @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd Dude i have the fastest net any provider can offer and i max out on 70mbps and its still not enough to get me through a game without BS lag. I would love a chance to get that rare cosmetic but its near impossible with such gamechanging connection.

  • JordanMeliani Final Reckoning (@JordanMeliani) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I believe there is a glitch with Wild Rose too, Madame Olive doesn’t care you give her the box of spices I think she should tell something at least... this is really annoying and needs a fix ASAP game killer... 😔

  • PrecurserOmega QTRmaster Zeta (@PrecurserOmega) reported

    @thechocmoojoo @Thor_von_Blitz @DreadDoug @SanitariumCrew @SeaOfThieves @SayHeyRocco @CarryTheLegend @IIMikezII @JoeNeate1 @RareLtd @rare_fanatic @GrogSwillinDill Yea the sloop holding all the curse cannonballs ended up lagging out. So the last race was curse lacking.

  • chrisclarknoe © sıɹɥƆ (@chrisclarknoe) reported

    Decided to finally try @SeaOfThieves tonight with some friends. That was 6 hours ago... Had a lot of fun I'll admit. Slightly ruined at the end of our session though with some rando problem child throwing racial slurs around

  • omnomcake_ Omnomcake (@omnomcake_) reported

    Pretty bummed that the latest @SeaOfThieves update was shipped with a known issue that not only prevents you from finishing one of the tall tales, but presumably prevents you from even advancing further in the quest chain unless you have a crew mate who has done it already :(

  • Nalacha1 Rob (@Nalacha1) reported

    @SeaOfThieves this is crazy... we have to wait DAYS before we can do the next chapter... thats not right.. take the servers down fix the problem OR roll back the patch that was just sent out.. you guys best be doing a OH hey here is some compensation or something...

  • FiltheeMudblood FiltheeMudblood (@FiltheeMudblood) reported

    @JPizzle133 @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support I've the opposite problem. It puts the exact same damn outfit on me every time I load up no matter how many times I change

  • NiniLeBoss Nils (@NiniLeBoss) reported

    @Alexis24328821 @SeaOfThieves when I run the game it crash directly. I tried everything nothing changes

  • craigums Craig Kaufman (@craigums) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @SeaOfThieves I’m not sure, it was honestly just super weird and eventually we got an error in the server and the match ended.

  • craigums Craig Kaufman (@craigums) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @SeaOfThieves Yes! It seems too suspicious to just be a server error.

  • JoeyVazquezart Joey Vazquez (@JoeyVazquezart) reported

    @TheReaperGamin2 @SeaOfThieves No I mean there is a glitch where the ship will out of nowhere just start skinning with it having been damaged.

  • thecoachmilky TheCoachMilky (@thecoachmilky) reported

    @Captain_Falcore @JPizzle133 @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support I had the same issue. Tried again with not equipping the curse. It doesn't save my regular outfit. I always look weird 😂

  • XRayLexx XRayLexx (DTW) (@XRayLexx) reported

    @JPizzle133 @Capt_Logun @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support I’m getting the same. Same shirt comes back on even though I keep changing it. Server issues I reckon.

  • TripBgaming Alexander (@TripBgaming) reported

    Reason for no stream last night...Dauntless was being a shit and it took the group like an hour to get in a party....please @PlayDauntless fix dis please. Game is pretty fun for the most part...just a cartoon version of monster hunter. Tonight is @SeaOfThieves around 11pm est.

  • Slimbigins1 l ☠️Slimbiginz☠️l (@Slimbigins1) reported

    @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves look i love you all but seriously before you do anything else I mean anything black screens and hit reg.....fix it!!! I know you are but continuing to add and not fix what is wrong is driving me and others away!! It feels lke the small stuff is always broke

  • lukeAle32296453 luke Alexander (@lukeAle32296453) reported

  • IrishIsEpic Irritated_Irish (@IrishIsEpic) reported

    @SeaOfThieves We can only applaud you all for working so hard to fix bugs, thank you!

  • ZeFuffleTruffle ZeFuffleTruffle (@ZeFuffleTruffle) reported

    @darrenkerwin @SeaOfThieves They posted about it last night in their discord. Yes I know we’ll get the fix. It’s just that this bug was caught pretty early on and many many people raved about it but it wasn’t fixed. So now people during bank holiday weekend and memorial day weekend can’t finish the tales.

  • ZeFuffleTruffle ZeFuffleTruffle (@ZeFuffleTruffle) reported

    @darrenkerwin @SeaOfThieves Yes they are, but they decided to send through a hotfix wile leaving out a fix for tt7.

  • maddidarlinggg 🎂🏳️‍🌈♡月光は外食♡🏳️‍🌈🎂 (@maddidarlinggg) reported

    @SeaOfThieves hey guys, just had our boat with over 3 thousand gold worth of fish just disappear under our feet while sitting at an outpost. I spent almost 20 minutes cooking it all and I'm pretty pissed. Please fix your game.

  • darrenkerwin Darren (@darrenkerwin) reported

    @jnr_payne @SeaOfThieves I'm very calm, if I wasn't then I would be making a fool of myself online, like getting upset about having to wait a few days extra for a bug fix, or resorting to personal insults because I didn't get my own way 😜 If you have nothing constructive to add, please stop.

  • poisonmeJeffy Armand (@poisonmeJeffy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Not sure if this issue has been brought up yet for Shores of Gold: My friend and I just turned in the Ancient Crown to Tasha...and nothing happened. No commendation, no story progression, nothing.

  • lukemorris10 Luke Morris (@lukemorris10) reported

    @Plecotuz @SeaOfThieves Everyone’s getting really bad lag right now... it’ll be this way for a little while until the servers settle

  • strategist22 Prodigy (@strategist22) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @Xbox I am having a huge issue with the game not allowing to get pass the start screen. I have uninstalled the game, hard reset my Xbox and even cleared system cache. I do not know what else to try.

  • FuzzyPyrate Cap'n OneEyed W1lliam (@FuzzyPyrate) reported

    @Lerki_of_Xbox @SeaOfThieves That one should be good by Tuesday I'm told. The team is working over the weekend on a fix

  • Plecotuz Derrick, Son of Merrick (@Plecotuz) reported

    @carrillogang @DreadDoug @SeaOfThieves "Anyone can unlock it" if i had have taken a month off of work, moved to america (so I could actually play without massive lag) and literally not gotten off xbox I might have been able to get 240 wins..maybe

  • iamthebblack Brandon Black (@iamthebblack) reported

    @SeaOfThieves turned in 20 fish, 2 skulls, 1 chest and no coin for my effort. Please fix

  • Plecotuz Derrick, Son of Merrick (@Plecotuz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves When we play against Americans, Germans, english people or anyone that isnt from australia we get lag that causes the game to be unplayable, It takes 20 minutes of blackscreen just to find a game. We need Oceana servers.

  • Plecotuz Derrick, Son of Merrick (@Plecotuz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves The servers for this game will be taken down before any australian gets 240 wins through the lag. For some reason game devs dont seem to understand that AUS has some of the worst internet in the world, there is literally African country's that have better internet than AUS cont

  • evilhamm18 Evilhamm18 (@evilhamm18) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I just sold a bunch of meat and chests, but did not receive gold for turning in. I force quit the game and reloaded in a new ship with the same effect. Not sure if you are aware of this issue.

  • KevinHausier Kevin Hausier (@KevinHausier) reported

    @SeaOfThieves why are you lagging...got my experience on athena waiting for my money now

  • GentildMarvin divol99 (@GentildMarvin) reported

    @SeaOfThieves it's normal that when I sell cofre / crane / crate or I spend blue parts I do not get any reputation or gold can check you if there is no problem or it's a bug that even restarting the game is still present bike please

  • Spartan11295 James “Spartan” (@Spartan11295) reported

    @SeaOfThieves MAJOR ISSUE. All of a sudden, with no player involvement, our ship was parked on a complete different island, and all of our chests disappeared. This is on Xbox and we are on a sloop. Our tags are TSF Cranberry and Kien Blade. Please help!

  • Robby7430 Robby Smith (@Robby7430) reported

  • JoeyVazquezart Joey Vazquez (@JoeyVazquezart) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @JoeNeate1 I haven’t. I will do. I spoke to a few other pirates who also seem to have similar issues, but also others who have not so it doesn’t seem universal as far as I can tell. I will reach out to the support team. Thank you!

  • cuteteahoru ✩CuteTea♡Horu✩ (@cuteteahoru) reported
