  • Vap0r1zer Vaporizer (@Vap0r1zer) reported

    @MattyGorm @acmartin55 @SeaOfThieves Yeah, something... I played insiders when there was "something" to do. Arena testing, everything back in the day.. when they were doing "something." The problem is they havent done anything in 2 years LOL. No new tall tale to try out.. no new ice island area...meh

  • umlixobembosta Gabrimenes (@umlixobembosta) reported

    @rcasale42 @jakejiam @SeaOfThieves i believe the problem is the old xbox one, they need the game to run in that old fat bathtub, and it can't handle a new region or sea creature so the console are limiting the sot in some ways

  • Cas37631475 Cas (@Cas37631475) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix ur game im tired of undownloading it and redownloading it everytime there's an update

  • birdsurvivor1 Avian (@birdsurvivor1) reported

    @Rolle59475986 @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves It instantly gives PvPers a negative Connotation, as you say they "target" Players that aren´t experienced in PvP, which most of the Time isn´t the Case at all. It is also putting PvEers into the Position of a Victim, as if PvP were a Problem that others suffer with

  • LittleEckert Julieckert (@LittleEckert) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves Idk... As someone who plays safely and avoids conflict anyway it wouldn't sit right with me knowing that I could be getting the same amount of value with much less trouble. Just my take. Maaaybe if they made it so you could not do higher rank voyages that give Captain/Villainous

  • PhantomNowOnYT Phantom (@PhantomNowOnYT) reported

    @SeaOfThieves and @SoT_Support for some reason when I switch from XBox Party Chat to Sea Of Thieves Game Chat I cannot hear any other play speak. Some of the players I play with also have the same problem and it's annoying. I am on XBox. Please fix this issue or help me

  • hensolo1981 hensolo1981 (@hensolo1981) reported

    @ashyra_ @cptboscliff @SeaOfThieves Funny how other game devs have been doing better during covid though. 🤔 I'd rather they skipped an update to fix the many bugs and glitches this game is suffering from at the moment.

  • STiastin Toasty (@STiastin) reported

    @Lorenz_Sinclair @SeaOfThieves The code to fix Hitreg

  • razorstorm Razorstorm (@razorstorm) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves The issue is, it changes the dynamic of the player base in game which ultimately changes the game feel and formula. Another option could be instance based events which only your crew can enter.

  • JamesJubane James Jubane (@JamesJubane) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves The point is PvE servers shouldn't exist and those that want them is normally due to pvp issues. I'm trying to help resolve some of those issues with a few tips. That way they can achieve pirate legend normally, like the rest of us.

  • FredChunks_ Fred Michaud (@FredChunks_) reported

    @TESOnline @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves See, this is how you update your player base. You tell them what exactly went wrong, what you did to resolve the issue, and you compensate them. Super simple, and everyone stays in the know.

  • selfSagax Ryan PerSagax (@selfSagax) reported

    epilogue, i'd love if #SeaOfThieves incentivized cooperation more, way overall. i'm sick as hell of getting ganked as a solo player constantly, and of always getting destroyed the moment i see a galleon. It's a community problem as much as a mechanics one.

  • LonelySloth Captain Sloth Sparrow (@LonelySloth) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves Not entirely the point. Do you even understand? There is no way they would even be able to support the servers. They would constantly crash and people would get upset. Besides what fun is it to take the reward with no risk... Ruins any game.

  • Twistedsoul1020 Rob (@Twistedsoul1020) reported

    @SeaOfThieves can you please fix your hit reg please

  • paulcr1982 paul ryan (@paulcr1982) reported

    @LilRedDiablo1 @SeaOfThieves I know its ping related upload speed is more important for hosting games and download is just useful for large gane downloads, I'm just making the point that the servers are so laggy of late. I know its a microsoft server overload issue due to the volume of people playing online

  • Dylbert__ Dylbert (@Dylbert__) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves no it would just ruin how the game is played , because most people to make money have to take risks thats apart of the SOT experience , without those risks the economy is broken people can stack as much loot as they want and it would break the prices of stuff in game

  • mos2016 Chris (@mos2016) reported

    @SeaOfThieves took nearly an hour to get into one Arena game 😡 I know you’re not working on Arena anymore, but really?? #waistingourtime #searchingtheseas

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @LonelySloth @SeaOfThieves what are you talking about constantly crash? lol Also who said no risk, without opportunist players waiting for others to engage in it pve could be much more interesting and challenging.

  • MrDeltt Mitsch (@MrDeltt) reported

    @SeaOfThieves It's not gonna matter if you dont fix the hit detection

  • nuglatron Lord Enrath (@nuglatron) reported

    @MissGenkiArt @SeaOfThieves I’ve got no problem with conflict in SoT. I’m a major PvP try hard lol but this barrel thing is just irritating af

  • BeanGrumpy Grumpy British Bean (@BeanGrumpy) reported

    @BoiBitty @SeaOfThieves Just going by what I have seen before :) I know they said they were not working on arena anymore, the term "ignore" seems appropriate. It is a great game, I just feel they need to push the envelope to keep people playing. I would gladly pay for an expansion if they did one.

  • GrapesLoaf Flapjacc (@GrapesLoaf) reported

    @SeaOfThieves how about fix reg

  • Kharjo19 Kharjo (@Kharjo19) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves If rare wanted to add this. They would have. And they are! With no progression. The progression is meaningless anyway. So whats the problem playing on a server by yourself. Nobody is going to see your cosmetics anyway. All you are doing is being annoying, and you know that.

  • CaptainEmbers Captain Embers (@CaptainEmbers) reported

    @noob76052507 @SeaOfThieves Exploit definition: “use in an unfair or selfish way” this glitch does nothing but throw a keg straight into the air when dropping another item on top of it in a very specific part of the shallows on an island. It has no combat advantage and infact is quite the opposite

  • True_Spica TrueSpica (@True_Spica) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves Even if this doesn't get added I still advocate for a server selection screen as a pseudo fix that allows players to enter an empty sever that can get filled but not guaranteed to fill up fast. Best of both worlds with the server selection screen.

  • LilRedDiablo1 LilRedDiablo (@LilRedDiablo1) reported

    @paulcr1982 @SeaOfThieves You have obviously never played Rocket League. I lag so bad in that game, its not even worth playing. Btw, lag isnt caused by bandwith, its caused by the latency of the connection to the server (ping). The further you are from the server the higher the ping, the worse the lag.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @NotAscension @SeaOfThieves You didn't say it but yes you're terrified. I told you. I play the game "proper" whatever ******** that means lol. There's no wrong way to play, only problem is people who don't want to pvp don't get to choose that. You keep citing Rare's intent, bet it'd surprise you.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves Everyone plays the same game but only those who want only to pvp can choose to play only the part they want and they're so spoiled and entitled that they think they should be be only ones allowed to do so. I'm not delving into your issues with being unable to tell what affects u

  • jwg5550 james grant (@jwg5550) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I mean if someone does it on your boat just use junk loot and place them on the barrels on the ship problem solved cause knowing game physics someone that’s barreling on there items will fall through them

  • ChozoCraig ChozoCraig (@ChozoCraig) reported

    @RCausey @moobloo07494600 @SeaOfThieves Yep! Was really excited to see that on login this morning.
