Update 7:00am 16th May - Game is back online and performance being monitored

  • Dedicated thread on the forums can be found here now -
    https://www.seaofthieves.com/forum/topic/59176/sea-of-thieves-server-instability-updates-may-16th


    "We have now completed our emergency maintenance and the game is back online. The previously mentioned features have been turned off temporarily and we will continue to monitor game performance. We will assess the situation in the morning to put together a plan on bringing those features back into the game. Thanks for your patience."

    If you're encountering errors of any kind in game, please send a report via Support to let the devs know whether there are still issues being encountered.


    Also from the crews mega thread -

    Due to a high volume of AlmondBeard errors, we have temporarily removed the Open/Closed Crews feature as well as the invisible underwater gamer tags, and give/take feature while we investigate the cause. We’ll be meeting first thing tomorrow to further assess the situation and work out a plan for reinstating these features. We understand the frustration this has caused, and will keep the community up to date with more information as we have it.

    Please use the mega thread to discuss the maintenance issues today, as well as the resulting temporary removal of the new features.

  • Oh no.. and i just want to give a banana to someone

  • "We would also like to thank all of you for testing our patch for bugs on the live servers!"

  • Thank you for letting us now, @KattTruewalker . Coming with the useful things, as always !

  • @eredhar I'll keep an eye on twitter and such and if I see anything else I'll add it in here... this isn't a situation anyone wants.

  • I have been booted twice. I'm on PC my entire crew got booted. Game is NOT fixed :(

  • "Want a banana?"
    "Sure!"
    "Here you g-" Server explodes

    Hopefully it's better now, but I would still be careful.
    Before starting a legendary voyage, do some normal ones just to see how it goes.

    And thanks for the update!

  • @katttruewalker It isn't, but it is what it is. Problems occurred, like it or not. BUT, what matters is that Rare is all over the situation, working on getting it fixed.

  • nice you guys are working on it!

    thanks!

  • And yet we're still receving almondbeards every 30 minutes...

  • @katttruewalker Thanks for the heads-up. Much appreciated, Katt. :o)

  • @xilky1

    Send a report via Support, it's the best way to let Rare know this is still an issue.

  • @KattTruewalker Have done so. Hopefully they read/respond to it quickly as I put it under general inquiry

    Yeah they wanted to include that sentence to the message, but it caused more crashes so had to be rolled back as well.
