Sea of Thieves Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • AdamOzzy LUFC OZZY (@AdamOzzy) reported

    @Jumper92PL @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves The biggest problem with this adventure is other players. Constant toxic crews

  • CGallerine Gallerine (@CGallerine) reported

    @Shaguar88 @SeaOfThieves Just cause you're bad at it or don't like it doesn't mean it's a bad game. There could be solutions to your problems, come back when you have some actual constructive criticism or clips instead of making blank-backed rage comments

  • BladeoftheWord Anthony McAndrew (@BladeoftheWord) reported

    @realraphi1 @SeaOfThieves Still not working, even after 2 days of trying to fix it 😒

  • Wadaya_Meane Wadaya Meane (@Wadaya_Meane) reported

    @Jumper92PL @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves I personally feel like the problem with Sea of Thieves, regardless of which side you stand when it comes to PvP, is that the PvP never seems to be taken into consideration when implementing new things into the game. It's bad for people who enjoy PvP as well sometimes.

  • Ein_Falseblood Ein Falseblood (@Ein_Falseblood) reported

    For those of you who have been griefed during #SeaofThieves latest adventure and have it recorded, drop it in the replies below this post. I'm going to compile them and send it in a support ticket to Rare. They need to fix this before it gets worse. Retweet so word gets around.

  • agntawesome007 AGNTAWESOME007 (@agntawesome007) reported

    I have tried no less than four times this week to play @SeaOfThieves and every time I get the LavenderBeard error... Am I stupid? How do I fix this? #seaofthieves #helpme

  • TheLordBanana1 The Lord Banana (@TheLordBanana1) reported

    @Fare_Thee_Well_ @SeaOfThieves I really hope they fix this I'm just going to list a few problems I have 1. Bugs - During the most recent adventure, several things did not update, and I had to leave and rejoin many times. 2. Players - They literally are toxic 50% of the time if the adventure requires them

  • PhuzzyBond Phuzzy (@PhuzzyBond) reported

    @Jumper92PL @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves This footage is enough evidence, however, these are obviously alt accounts so a ban will likely do nothing. It's an Xbox issue that I hope they address at some point.

  • joel_pashenee Joel Daniel Pashenee (@joel_pashenee) reported

    @SeaOfThieves What i don't understand is, why can't we invite friends to the same server, but not in our crew? 8 people can actually be on a real brig with no issues. Idk why you need just 4. Add in the MOW already, we fight them all the time. Why not operate one???

  • Thug4ng3l Ben Vickers (@Thug4ng3l) reported

    @SeaOfThieves I've called mine Crash Bandisloop

  • BladeoftheWord Anthony McAndrew (@BladeoftheWord) reported

    @SeaOfThieves 2 days and still not working 😕

  • ZackAmor1 Zamen (@ZackAmor1) reported

    @Jumper92PL @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves These are the people i encountered yesterday too lol. They are actually bad at pvp the problem is we (me and my crewmate as slooper) couldn't finish off their galleon due to interference of the ghost ships and we eventually low on sups didn't anticipate fight in adventure :(

  • Fare_Thee_Well_ Fare Thee Well (@Fare_Thee_Well_) reported

    @TheLordBanana1 @SeaOfThieves Aye, the bugs are rampant with Adventures. With their short lifespan, they never seem to fix the issues before the Adventure is gone forever too. In my opinion, story content really should not rely on another player's choices for people to have a fulfilling experience.

  • NIMO066081 Walsh Staples (@NIMO066081) reported

    @AstoriaRego @Reaper_Redcap @SeaOfThieves Where's the problem?

  • ZackAmor1 Zamen (@ZackAmor1) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Fix the new adventure, people get spawn camp for no reason

  • Wells1503 Daniel Wells (@Wells1503) reported

    @LEGION1TE @SeaOfThieves Had the same problem, me my cousin were looking forward to this adventure but couldn’t even enjoy it because there were three other ships there and we constantly got spawn killed. So frustrating

  • Ausstatterer Captain Camouflage (@Ausstatterer) reported

    @Fare_Thee_Well_ @SeaOfThieves I have to say I like the adventures, but it would be great if ppl could read what happened in the Las adventures. This one has massive problems, I was lucky and got it done in the first try. I was very very excited for the mystery, I was so hyped and now it's getting frustrating

  • CTMiniManiac CTMiniManiac (@CTMiniManiac) reported

    Crewmate has been experiencing some pretty bad lag spikes (one every 30 seconds) Anyone got any ideas to fix it? #SeaOfThieves @SoT_Support

  • AeternumNox Prophet of Infinity🔞 (@AeternumNox) reported

    @SeaOfThieves How about you fix your damn game first, yeah? I was in a pristine galleon that got ran up on by some speed hacking a-holes that sunk a 4 person crew in, no exaggeration, 6 seconds. Maybe if the game wasn't so ******, your community wouldn't be so disgusting to each other.

  • xMLG_Drizzy Dave+ (@xMLG_Drizzy) reported

    @SeaOfThieves fix your damn game…I can’t do the new adventure because these players are so damn sweaty and keep spawn killing

  • WizardSpirit23 AriesSpiritWizard (@WizardSpirit23) reported

    @Jumper92PL @SoT_Support @SeaOfThieves Only problem is i mainly play on playstation i didn’t think about getting xbox or pc didn’t know witch one to pick

  • AegnorB Captain Aegnor (@AegnorB) reported

    @Fare_Thee_Well_ @SeaOfThieves I feel the general problem with adventures comes with how people feel after the recent griefing reports. This last adventure was a good idea in theory but it was underestimating the toxic part of the community. Closing Merrick's arc on that has a sour taste and feels too short.

  • DaltonNovinski Dalton Novinski (@DaltonNovinski) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Bro the new Merrick mission is just for tryhards to get free ******* kills please fix it dude I'm tired of getting one shotted by a damn reaper emissary while a phantom shoves their sword up my ***

  • InMemeoryOf Wednesday Addams 🐈‍⬛ (@InMemeoryOf) reported

    @SeaOfThieves This is great and all... but uhhh when are you gonna fix the bugs since the update? Game keeps setting my captain ship to default sails etc and costing me gold or the disappearing cannon ***** I purchase from the new ship options? Been robbed of about 50k so far 🧐😤

  • ThatChickRebyTV Reby ♡ (@ThatChickRebyTV) reported

    @Deano_M_ @SeaOfThieves Only problem with that is there are people who intentionally go around sinking tall talers I've had it done myself alot of times..

  • SNADER420 SNADER (@SNADER420) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Bro i am writing this while i've been in a black loading screen for 5 minutes while my crew is fighting another galleon fix your game and then add more content

  • iiSlxyy iiSlxyy (@iiSlxyy) reported

    @Scoggiemadden @SeaOfThieves You have the same glitch I have, idk if you know his but if you buy a voyage from merchant it will allow you to pick it up. So buy a supply crate and right after a voyage and it’ll allow you to take it. (The discard voyage)

  • beardedcuttlef Colt (@beardedcuttlef) reported

    @SeaOfThieves Started last week of April....484 hours in since then....I may have a problem?

  • FriskyBeaverr 🇨🇦 FriskyBeaverr 🇨🇦 (@FriskyBeaverr) reported

    @SeaOfThieves this new adventure is amazing, but the spawn camping is so damn terrible... Fix this please?

  • ttvExtinguisher extinguisher (@ttvExtinguisher) reported

    @SeaOfThieves please fix it to where I can equaling fight another ship who has a lot of loot without having to deal with a slideshow
