    @liverquay63 @NUROKHOWLER @SeaOfThieves ok.... Didnt have to show me, I do know it is a known issue, I never said it was fixed for everyone.

  • Tals_Tales Talriaen (@Tals_Tales) reported

    @liverquay63 @NUROKHOWLER @SeaOfThieves And yet, mine was fixed. I remember having the last couple not show unlocked, but that did fix. It did take a couple times, but i have all checkmarks now on all the tales

  • ItsNateSherriff Nate 🍁 (@ItsNateSherriff) reported

    @Oomley @streamloots @RareLtd @SeaOfThieves I will await your correction. Only way to fix this is to create that card.

  • thunderx139x Thunderx139x (@thunderx139x) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @WatchMixer Hmm maybe we might get the Obsidian wheel tomorrow when we login. Or just another glitch with giving people the wheel oh well we won’t know till rare gives us what WE WANT!!

    @Gargomon251 @SeaOfThieves @WatchMixer Microsoft’s official streaming service.

  • NerdyNCL Nerdy NCL (@NerdyNCL) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    After some technical issues with their stream on Mixer, @Xbox's #X019 has officially kicked off with a new game from the Legendary @RareLtd. #Everwild looks to be a promising new endeavour for the studio, fingers crossed it turns out better than the disappointing #SeaOfThieves 🤞

    @DMore111 @CarryTheLegend @SeaOfThieves @IIMikezII I bet you panicked when those legs were broken 😂

  • SpaceMagic773 Matt Ferguson (@SpaceMagic773) reported

    Hey @SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support there is a glitch with the fort of the damned where the loot wont spawn properly. The door is wide open and after defeating Graymarrow, there’s no loot

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @SuixideThoughts @SeaOfThieves well then, I'm not sure how much more I can help you. I would directly send a tweet to @SoT_Support and ask for help. I'm not entirely sure it's a SoT problem though... sucks. I wish I knew a trick to help

  • robertwalton10 robert walton (@robertwalton10) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Maybe concentrate on sorting gears 5 before promoting the broken game within other franchises

  • Lanseril_Storm Lanseril Storm (@Lanseril_Storm) reported

    @Tak225Th @SeaOfThieves I hope it never comes. We dont need it. Im on console and have no issues dumping pc guys

  • xKingxSlayerx Mike (@xKingxSlayerx) reported

    @SeaOfThieves FIX YOUR ******* LOAD TIME!!!!!

  • Tak225Th TAK THE CONSOLE GAMER (@Tak225Th) reported

    @JesseGriffin812 @Tals_Tales @1Chenzo @DeemFN_ @SeaOfThieves @Blueshirts102 @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears As I said before there 24 man servers and have server migrations servers not filling will not be a problem

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @JesseGriffin812 @Tak225Th @SeaOfThieves @Blueshirts102 @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Right on. So you don’t have to opt out. But let the people that don’t want to suffer m/k do so. I don’t get why that’s such an issue for some people. And, in my opinion, I don’t think it will make the servers seem empty since it is always sticking people together.

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @Its5eth @Tak225Th @SeaOfThieves @Blueshirts102 @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears I think they should add it. AS he said, if there’s no 24 people playing at a specific time, then there’s a bigger problem. But as it stands now, splitting the communities up shouldn’t ‘empty the servers'

  • oo_prentiss_oo Kat Prentiss (@oo_prentiss_oo) reported

    @AuchTwo @_Deons @SeaOfThieves If you can’t grind Arena fine, it currently is a broken system that takes way too long for the casual gamer and needs addressing, but having the ability to just buy 50 levels with never playing a match is just a cop out.

  • oo_prentiss_oo Kat Prentiss (@oo_prentiss_oo) reported

    @AuchTwo @_Deons @SeaOfThieves And that’s currently how long it takes to make one legitimate level in Arena..another path to progression needs to be added while the system is broken.

  • AlanmacM Alan (@AlanmacM) reported

    @GearsofWar @SeaOfThieves Fix your game please

  • Dur4iVal3ntin Durai Valentin (@Dur4iVal3ntin) reported

    @GearsofWar @SeaOfThieves Fix your stuff and stop that crossover bs

  • xxjayepiecexx Jaye Lyons (@xxjayepiecexx) reported

    @GearsofWar @SeaOfThieves Fix your own game before ******* up another #gears5sucks

  • Galaxygamerone Daniel Brennan (@Galaxygamerone) reported

    Hopefully it isn’t another service game like @SeaOfThieves (it’s pretty great now but took over a year)

  • DJAutumn81 Autumn (@DJAutumn81) reported

    @MrRazamataz @SeaOfThieves I believe that's what my bf has and he has the issues too. and I have a brand new higher end gaming pc and it does it to me as well. I don't think it's a pc issue but then again i'm not a pc expert :P

  • RealMisterChef TheMisterChef (@RealMisterChef) reported

    @Tak225Th @SovietXeno @SeaOfThieves @Blueshirts102 @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears I'm a console player tho lol, I have no issues battling against PC players.

  • FluffehShiba Fluffeh-Shiba (@FluffehShiba) reported

    Just started the #SeaOfThieves stream! obs seem to be handling it better than expected, but I still think It'll probably crash at one point... XD

  • MrRazamataz ☠ Black Dragon Raz ☠ (@MrRazamataz) reported

    @DJAutumn81 @SeaOfThieves If you buy a solid state drive (ssd) and run sea of thieves off it. This will fix any loading/black screen problems 🙂

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @SlooperSolo @MrHyperrion @Tyler29349 @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves I’m literally asking you to tell me how it’s designed poorly. Don’t talk about the past I obviously don’t understand that. I don’t see the issue with the current FotD (and obviously neither does rare.)

  • killzone1401 Killzone1401 (@killzone1401) reported

    @MrHyperrion @1Chenzo @SlooperSolo @Tyler29349 @SeaOfThieves Server hopping really isn’t that much of a problem, if you start the FotD up you can expect to have company, server hoppers or not

  • MrHyperrion demon (@MrHyperrion) reported

    @1Chenzo @SlooperSolo @Tyler29349 @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves Server hopping is definitely a big problem. I’ve done a lot of sailing the last 10 days. I’ve completed al the Tall Tales comm except the Shores of Gold. I’ve been on many servers and many hours on and not once was it started up. Only time I saw it was once and was when I joined

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @SlooperSolo @Tyler29349 @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves Server hopping isn’t as big as a problem as you think it is I think. And yes. The risk IS the loss of the time and effort. That’s what I’m saying. You remove those and then it’s just another fort. It makes stealing the fort more enticing and satisfying

  • 1Chenzo Chenzo (@1Chenzo) reported

    @Tyler29349 @SlooperSolo @killzone1401 @SeaOfThieves IMO, making the start conditions easier would make the FotD boring. It’s the threat of other pirates and the time spent that make it a true accomplishment. It’s supposed to be camped. The red skull is a beacon for call to attack. I think server jumping is a minor problem.

  • SlooperSolo CrazyJuan (@SlooperSolo) reported

    @killzone1401 @Tyler29349 @SeaOfThieves its not about the camping. you could sit on the FOTD all day and never see anyone start it. Its the server hopping. which used to be a problem with the forts long ago, but they'd solved that by making them more common... this is just a step backwards.

  • JakescapeAU Jake (@JakescapeAU) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Australian arena servers and Legendary sea dog fix. I'm just going to keep saying this on every form of post I see for exposure. This NEEDS to be addressed.

    @EFFTENDO @majornelson @SeaOfThieves ...the switch) but in games that allow M+K support you'll probably be able to use it If you hook up a Bluetooth M+K set up and only that consoles standard controller. PS4s stream service only allows PS4 controllers cause it's be sacrilegious to allow you to use an Xbox controller

  • TheJeydrick9 The Jeydrick 9 (@TheJeydrick9) reported

    @EFFTENDO @majornelson @SeaOfThieves Yeah, depending on your streaming service, it's not a matter of can you connect it, it's a matter of they probably won't let you, you'll only be able to use input devices allowed in each plataforms belonging to the streaming service, for example Xbox and PS4, (can't say for...

  • samantha_32199 Samantha (@samantha_32199) reported

    Shoutout to @SeaOfThieves for having the most TOXIC game in the world . Imagine every single time you login to play & you get loot . Someone kills you . That doesn’t make the game enjoyable . Imagine spending 2 hours on the tall tales just to lose the final piece from dying .

  • lordshacks SAD? (@lordshacks) reported

    @DeadCarnival @RealMisterChef @SeaOfThieves If you don't like the game crying like a little ***** in their replies isn't gonna fix that.

  • TheJeydrick9 The Jeydrick 9 (@TheJeydrick9) reported

    @majornelson @SeaOfThieves We need XCloud servers in the west us coast or Caribbean and a low quality stream option to prioritize less lag and latency at the cost of resolution.

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @RealMisterChef @lordshacks @SeaOfThieves and I always will but if your going to say shit, at least tell the truth, truth is.....I have been complaining since the DAY this half assed broken no content having ***** launched.

    @majornelson @SeaOfThieves So jealous. Game Streaming not working for me and patiently awaiting xcloud. Looks the business though!

  • DeadCarnival WickedDeath (@DeadCarnival) reported

    @SeaOfThieves No that's overkill and it's what happens when you have a companies running a live service game that have no clue how to program live service or not. Just get that $41 out for that boat set.

    @VarahOliver @JIcpvp @SeaOfThieves @RareLtd @BoxyFresh_ I agree... they're just trolls. Oh well. I sometimes think we can have a normal conversation about issues but... this is the internet so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    @SeaOfThieves Please fix the 5 million bugs and add better servers before pushing out more content that will be inevitably buggy and laggy.

    @SYND1CATE_77 @SgtGrogDog68 @Xbox @SeaOfThieves True story, I was so sad the 1st time I went into Legendary hideout and saw my Galleon all broke down and tore up. Not to mention, un nameable, unable to sail through waterfall, much less anywhere else. All that grind for a broken down, POS Galleon.
