  • Kevins_A_Girl Kevin Lawler (@Kevins_A_Girl) reported

    @Dal56542713 @SlooperSolo @Dragonify_ @SeaOfThieves (2/2) SoT has always been marketed as a games as a service title, meant to exist for 10 years if we're lucky. For Rare to employ developers for a decade working on one game, they need a steady stream of money coming in to do so. This isn't a novel concept.

  • Postosuchus_rox Daniel Marshall (@Postosuchus_rox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I started a legendary storyteller quest, an hour in I finally got to the second key, the game lagged awfully right before I could get into my sloop, it respawned me on the boat, despawned the key and now there quest is undoable. This needs a fix :/

  • MrThibRB MrThib (@MrThibRB) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I cant register on the seaofthieves site. Every time i click login, he sends me to the support page..

  • mod_bluejay Bluejay Plays (@mod_bluejay) reported

    @VerbeekTim @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves We should try that gunpowder barrel glitch thing next time 😄

  • ZombieCeli ZombieCeli (@ZombieCeli) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @Captain_Falcore I wish I could but I get an invalid token error while trying to connect to my twitch account... ._.

  • byVerts minecraft is gangster (@byVerts) reported

    @SeaOfThieves please fix the sword mechanics in your game, it's so slow going anything

  • Seanaci 💕💜Stream Mom™ Seanaci💜💕 (@Seanaci) reported

    @AutarkisMike @SeaOfThieves Yeah. Not surprised by that. Constructive criticism goes a much longer way than just flat out "your game sucks, you suck, fix it" garbage. Guess some people will never learn that.

  • TheLittleAtari Admiral Atari ☠️ (@TheLittleAtari) reported

    @SeaOfPhotograph @SeaOfThieves You sign in on the website, not xbox.

  • CannonMunkii 🐒💨CannonMunkii💥 (@CannonMunkii) reported

    Well, due to playing with my crewmates but on diff ships we were able to fight each other. This made me realise how broken/how many bugs are in #SeaOfThieves combat. 1. Multiple times while duelling I would miss a shot, only to be told that on their side it hit them...

  • mrcfield Chris Field (@mrcfield) reported

    @DavidGouge @SeaOfThieves @Twitch Oh i see, hmm ok! will see what's what. That error is on Twitch's side btw...

  • MonkeyzPRican MonkeyzPRican 🇵🇷🐒 #GoT9 (@MonkeyzPRican) reported

    @cootiez1 @WatchMixer @SeaOfThieves Yeaa there's an issue with vods. I was upset my Gears 5 stream didn't save.

  • _callico_ ⚜| 𝕮𝖆𝖑𝖑𝖎𝖈𝖔 |⚜ (@_callico_) reported

    @Huldera1 @SeaOfThieves Well that is broken!

  • SlooperSolo Gears for Goty (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Dal56542713 @SeaOfThieves You don't have to grind for ancient coins. If being "exposed" to a menu is a problem for you that's really on you. You're exposed to content you don't want or can't have in almost every game. You've really got those Sterling talking points memorized though.

  • Dragonify_ Josh Sams (@Dragonify_) reported

    @Dal56542713 @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves And that's an issue of parental supervision, not the game. Turn the same kid lose in a toy store with a credit card and he'll do the same thing, but no one will blame the store.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @Dragonify_ @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves Not my issue to fix. My only issue as the consumer is to decide when my money is not getting me what it used to. Rare somehow found the funds to support their game with huge updates this long. Some companies have less to work with, than Rare does anyway.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @Mayorsam01 @HeshlerBeck @SeaOfThieves You don't know that, friend. F2P has worked just fine, if not better for some titles. They could add more micro-transactions to help make up for it, and even combine it with a subscription service, similar to RuneScape.

  • Dragonify_ Josh Sams (@Dragonify_) reported

    @Dal56542713 @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves They had bigger issues, bit you'd have to be blind to say that visuals weren't a big part of it. And lol no. People still take microscopes to games to complain about visuals.

  • ShyNieke ShyNieke (@ShyNieke) reported

    @discordapp It is either a massive issue on this streaming feature or you guys just don't seem to like the @SeaOfThieves game, i mean it is a good game but going live is not a posibility using discord sadly

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @Dragonify_ @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves Not really my issue to worry about how poorly Rare and Microsoft handled their budget, and it ignores the many other modern games that release just fine while only charging $60.

  • scampbell048 Steven Campbell (@scampbell048) reported

    @SeaOfThieves This video is redundant. You have made posts about all of this stuff. I knew all of it already. These videos should be a look behind the scenes at what the team is working on. Ideas that have been presented that you may try to implement. Game issues you are trying to resolve. Etc

  • Djmerck1 MorningRain (@Djmerck1) reported

    @DeadCarnival @SeaOfThieves They should be doing anything to fix the game but instead they're trying to sell imaginary pets

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves Gamers never asked publishers to bloat games budgets to the point of needing to implement F2P markets in upfront cost games, friend. And at least with those plastic statues, you got a physical good you can resell. Although how the Wolf Link Amiibo was handled in TP is a problem.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @FknSamsquamptch @SeaOfThieves Again, premeditated customer milking, is still bad. And maybe you would talk about issues affecting a game you don't play because you have a genuine interest in it, along with the broader industry, friend.😊👍

  • Justmy2cents11 Justmy2cents (@Justmy2cents11) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves My main issue is the achievements really, no way in hell am i going to grind all that over again. The only achievements I have left are the arena ones.

  • Justmy2cents11 Justmy2cents (@Justmy2cents11) reported

    @Tals_Tales @SeaOfThieves My main issue is the achievements really, no way in hell am i going to grind all that over again. The only achievements I have left are the arena ones.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @XNightStalkerX8 @1Chenzo @SeaOfThieves (2/2) … And the fact that anyone paid a full $60 and is still being shown micro-transactions in the actual game, is a problem to me.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @Dal56542713 @SeaOfThieves They stated they won’t do this. That’s where it becomes and issue. Pay to WIN is a completely different animal than paying a little extra to have a non game changing monkey or a set of sails.

  • Tals_Tales Shayne Wood (@Tals_Tales) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves It doesnt matter if you dont care about the streamers. Rare does, so they will continue doing these kind of events. Its not a "problem", its just someone who is whining about nothing. It doesnt always have to be something interesting for players.

  • SlooperSolo Gears for Goty (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Tals_Tales @SeaOfThieves Yes, I understand how it works. Yes, I've used other screens to ignore streamers and get the items. No, it doesn't feel rewarding or add anything interesting to attempt for in the game. That's the problem, completely unsolved by your oh-so-helpful tweet.

  • Tals_Tales Shayne Wood (@Tals_Tales) reported

    @SlooperSolo @SeaOfThieves The Obsidian stuff has always been this way. Either watching xbox events, or through Twitch drops. If you dont like that, then dont watch. Thats up to you. They are only asking for 30 minutes. If anything, play it on your phone in the background. Problem solved.

  • SlooperSolo Gears for Goty (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @Justmy2cents11 @SeaOfThieves Cant imagine that will would be an issue.

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @FknSamsquamptch @SeaOfThieves Just because they told us they were gonna rip us off before launch, that doesn't make it okay, and this is coming from someone who hasn't even bought the game. And with all due respect, telling gamers to not support a game, instead of telling devs to fix it, isn't healthy for SoT

  • Dal56542713 Dal (@Dal56542713) reported

    @SeaOfThieves My preferences will always lie with games that are sold earnestly! Please make Sea of Thieves free to play to justify the micro-transactions. Or sell the game normally, like you've been doing for months without issue, and like older titles often did. Rare is better than this.😄

  • EpicSugarPlum EpicSugarPlum (@EpicSugarPlum) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Still. Not working for' me

  • g_play84 Gianni🅿lay (@g_play84) reported

    @SeaOfThieves isn't enough. i had to login into my mixer page (on pc) to receive my rewards and reccomandations and all others stuffs. i was already streaming "sea of thieves" for over 10 mins....but after my log i ve instantly unlock my stuffs

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

    Hey @SeaOfThieves, just tried viewing the animations from the creator crew asset pack and it BSOD'd my laptop :( Said the graphics engine had shit down to prevent harm. It's probably just on my end but thought I'd let you know incase there's a problem

  • omnomcake_ Omnomcake (@omnomcake_) reported

    @Snake52489347 @DrBullhammer @CaptainKermit_ @SeaOfThieves Because the whole point is for the company to make money. The game has been out for a year and a half, released two content updates that could have easily been paid dlc, and want money to continue making the game better. I don't see the issue with giving them $5.

  • mickmyk Myk (@mickmyk) reported

    After a failed attempted at streaming #SeaofThieves last night, I'll be having another go around 10pm BST tonight. If any issues arise I'll just call it quits and the world will probably be a lot better off...

  • Jared95585272 Jared (@Jared95585272) reported

    @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.

    @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."
