    @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

  • 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

    @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...

  • Kippershy Niall Mullenger (@Kippershy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @JoeNeate1 Eight krakens since the pet update. I'm going to tweet at you at this point, for every kraken I have to deal with, to make my point. Also, @SoT_Support, gaining Athena miles during tall tales seems to have broken itself again.

  • Schrodember Schrodember (@Schrodember) reported

    Putting this out there, has anyone found a fix to “gpu has run out of memory” error when playing @SeaOfThieves funny thing is my stream doesn’t drop or lose frames. It has to be SoT. Also running a 2060 and Ryzen 2700 with 16gb mem everything up to date.

  • sergiosclicks Sergio's clicks (@sergiosclicks) reported

    A lot of players (included myself) are not able to buy ancient coins in @SeaOfThieves. It seems that the shoppping store is not working at all.

  • LordVargar Channel Vargar (@LordVargar) reported

    @SeaOfThieves The pirate emporium is NOT open on Xbox ! i have been trying to buy ancient coins since last night and is says it unavailable try again later! 😡 I want to get my son 1000 coins for his 10th birthday tomorrow! @SeaOfThives please FIX THIS!

  • fabienfecamp Fabien_76 (@fabienfecamp) reported

    @SeaOfThieves hello I contact you to report a problem emporium I can not buy everything via the online store

  • WillyNilly418 William Savoie 🕷🕸 (@WillyNilly418) reported

    @SeaOfThieves the support website gave me a server error when trying to make a ticket. But I wanted to mention a sounded bug I keep getting when randomly going underwater and then coming back up quickly that basically just destroys my ears. It’s like being underwater times 100000

  • feistykitten_ The Feisty Kitten (@feistykitten_) reported

    @PiotrWerner2 @SeaOfThieves It's a known issue, they'll come out with a hotfix eventually

  • WarmGlassOfMayo warmglassofmayo (@WarmGlassOfMayo) reported

    @DeadCarnival @SeaOfThieves But the fanboys love it and they are the reason the games still broke. Ya think since launch you would address the real problems first especially the black screen.

  • VinnyVeeLive Vinny Vee 🔫 (@VinnyVeeLive) reported

    @Syllviio_ @SeaOfArena @SeaOfThieves More like "known issues we actually created ourselves by 'fixing' something that shouldn't have been touched in the first place"

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @BeardOfBlack @SeaOfThieves meanwhile, flex broke every one else's game to do nothing but be annoying so SOT could make more money because the $60 for $10 worth of content wasn't enough. and don't even try to say the game is broken to all hell right now.....

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @SeaOfThieves ENOUGH OF THIS NONSENSE!!!! FIX YOUR GAME!!!!! it's so broken right now it isn't even funny. This game is so broke after this "update" there is too many things to list

  • hhgoblin rickie (@hhgoblin) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @SpikeNox @brooke20346231 You keep telling people that but it's obvious it's not an isolated problem. My whole crew can't buy ancient coins! Sort it out already.

  • KGerhartz Katelyn Gerhartz (@KGerhartz) reported

    @SeaOfThieves It's still not working... I sent a request and they said it was solved. It wasn't.

  • atheeena_ LadyAtheeena (@atheeena_) reported

    @SpikeNox @brooke20346231 @SeaOfThieves I had this error all day yesterday my fix was that Microsoft App on my pc wasn’t signed in to the right account that my game was playing on which made it unavailable. Be sure to check you Microsoft app on you computer it should work after that :)

  • DadBodHans Hans 🇺🇸💯 (@DadBodHans) reported

    @LazyAngel_ @PsytronZero @SeaOfThieves Well see the problem here is that a lot of people LIKE the "shoes". Most dont see they're being scammed.

  • UnfixedKdog Ken (@UnfixedKdog) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Im have problems looking left to right in Sot. It would randomly freeze. Tried 2 different controllers and different games. Just started tonight for me.

  • SpikeNox Spike Nox (@SpikeNox) reported

    @brooke20346231 @SeaOfThieves I'm getting the same error. I would feel better if the developers would let us know they at least know about it.

  • SpikeNox Spike Nox (@SpikeNox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I am still unable to purchase ancient coins. Been getting the error "unavailable".

  • AugieDoggie08 Augie (@AugieDoggie08) reported

    @SeaofThieves @SoT_Support There is this bug that wont let you "equip" any items or weapons. Once you select them they automatically sheath. Dying or taking a mermaid does not fix it nor interacting with any parts of the ship

  • PlaySouls PlaySouls - Spieler mit 💚 (@PlaySouls) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd I can not buy coins in the game. 😭 The game says: The purchase can not be completed. Please try again later. I get the error message since yesterday.

  • lmmx21 Lauren Marie (@lmmx21) reported

    @SeaOfThieves TO ANYONE RECEIVING THE ERROR OF THE STORE INVENTORY BEING UNAVAILABLE!! I just read from the support page that if you’re on game share or do not own the game, you will be unable to purchase ancient coins. IMO, this should be fixed. I just paid $10 & won’t getcoins!

  • crafterpuggy Crafterpuggy (@crafterpuggy) reported


  • crafterpuggy Crafterpuggy (@crafterpuggy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Ok now this is incredibly stupid. I would like an answer on how to fix this please. I haven't been able to play this game in 2 days and its frustrating me. @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @SoT_Support

  • Tigerfly110 Tigerfly1 (@Tigerfly110) reported

    @SeaOfThieves My sea of thieves dousnt work of i click on the game its there for a sec and than its gone again what can i do to fix this

  • crafterpuggy Crafterpuggy (@crafterpuggy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves this is getting ridiculous now. I can’t load into the pirate emporium OR load into a game!! Your giving me hazelnutbeard... Fix this please...

  • DavidArgodavid Argo (@DavidArgodavid) reported

    @SeaOfThieves i wanted to get some ancient coins but everytime i open the store to buy them it always unavaible and try again later just wanting to know if there is an issue for PC players that cannot access the store because i would really like a bird to join me on my voyages.

  • barryggould1 barry g gould (@barryggould1) reported

    @UnDeadTonto @SeaOfThieves try buying from the xbox store. i have a friend that had the same problem but was able to buy them from the xbox store

  • Tak225Th TAK THE CONSOLE GAMER (@Tak225Th) reported

    @LEGIONUK2 @C3DPODean @SeaOfThieves Maybe so but I do think in slot of games mouse and keyboard is a advantage and I ain't a fan of it being forced on us with pc no issues with console cross play or pc players using controller but don't wanna be matched with mouse and keyboard players

  • BluePlaydohLIVE MrBluePlaydohLIVE (@BluePlaydohLIVE) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix the bug that says you have not completed shores of gold when clearly have as you have the curse, thanks.

  • UnDeadTonto Tom Britt (@UnDeadTonto) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Still can't buy ancient coins. Either from the main menu or the in game emporium. Error messages every time or a never ending spinning icon. Would love to buy a pet, but unfortunately can not.

  • WarmGlassOfMayo warmglassofmayo (@WarmGlassOfMayo) reported

    @MrSilverHawk @SeaOfThieves The reason it gets pushed and these problems exist is because of fanboys

  • Syllviio_ Syllviio (@Syllviio_) reported

    @VinnyVeeLive @SeaOfArena @SeaOfThieves I find it funny how the only thing PvP got this update was a “known issues” mention in the patch notes

  • rgommanss RG (@rgommanss) reported

    @SeaOfThieves For those still having server issues, try reinstalling the game if you find the time for it. My brother coudnt get into the game no matter what he tried untill he reinstalled the game, which did the trick. Good luck!

  • HeimeerS AlzHeimeerS (@HeimeerS) reported

    @XboxMik29 @VirtualShelton @SeaOfThieves @Gamerboss @JoeNeate1 @residentveg Thats not the problem, my problem is finding crew ledger screen its just loading trying to find my pirate but with no luck a week before the update i reinstalled my game 4 times 😌 and mu girls account works perfect on the box ( but her pirate is started on Xbox, and my on pc

  • Ghoulyboy Gregg Mayles (@Ghoulyboy) reported

    @BrysonTube @lukemorris10 @OldCaptainJay @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd It would have broken our rule of pets not giving you power, but this little fellow would have been an excellent gold digger

    The problem with the monkeys in #SeaofThieves is that they aren't the parrots.

  • jude71539117 jude (@jude71539117) reported

    @XboxJuggalos @xPerfecsean @SeaOfThieves they launched this game with 2 quests at 50 dollars. they don't get to put microtransactions in the game. the year of "free" content should have been there at launch, and even then it still would have been overpriced. you are so braindead that you can't see how this is a problem.
