    @SeaOfThieves @rare_fanatic Shut down servers then fix the game. When it is fixed only then put the servers back online

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @TheXboxTurtle @TheLuckyFreckle @Dillon04745728 @Snowian_ @SeaOfThieves I suspect the servers are getting hammered. Every largish patch has these kinds of issues right after it’s released.

    @SeaOfThieves @rare_fanatic Same broblem fix your game

    @1Chenzo @TheXboxTurtle @Dillon04745728 @Snowian_ @SeaOfThieves I hit PL this past weekend - I'm not panicking in the least. I know I have to wait for mine and that's fine. We are simply discussing that people who hit PL BEFORE March are having issues, and it seems to be bugged.

  • BmanGlove BG Gamer (@BmanGlove) reported

    @I_is_WILLiam @EnragedWolf81 @SeaOfThieves Matchmaking error doesn't mean there isn't anyone - it can make a new empty server to put more people in - it means that it's encountering an error when it tries to find you/put you into a server.

  • Justmy2cents11 Justmy2cents (@Justmy2cents11) reported

    @ItsLoganCAD @SeaOfThieves Its what you make it I guess. I think the quality is fine, that has never been an issue that has crossed my mind anyway. But, there are tons of other PvP games for you so that's good.
