General + Off-Topic Discussion - "The Outer Shores"

  • Ahoy!
    I know it's early in the year but I want to bring to your attention EGX 2019 in October!
    Tickets are available now.

    A few of us pirates met up last October, with Rare visiting for a 'meet and greet' and tell us of the journey of the game and what may come in the future.

    I hope that this year we can have an even larger group meeting together and sharing our Sea of Thieves stories in person.
    I shall be there again with my bucket and a few giveaways but am urging you all to #GetYourPirateOn and come dressed 'Sea of Thieves' style!

    May the best Pirate win!

  • I'm just curious, does anyone do this?

    Usually when I've played for a few hours, stockpiled a couple storage crates full of goodies... once I've reached the end of my journey I'll either set sail looking for a ship to donate them to or I'll drop them all off at the nearest outpost to help someone else out.

  • Hello the only reason I am writing this post is because i don't have friends to play with on SOT. I used to play a lot when i was able to go on the discord but something really stupid happened and i was banned from the discord with no threat or warning at all, and if i make new accounts to try to talk to the admins they just ban me again. I eventually ended up deleting the game because without the discord it was pointless and Xbox LFG is full of toxic ppl or noobs. So let me explain what happened, one day i joined this guys game and at some point he wanted me to leave because he wanted every player in the crew to be PC only and not a mix of xbox players. I chose to stay in the crew and the person got very mad and started acting very childish, toxic and rude. He texted me on discord claiming that he was going to get people to report me and get me banned from the discord and that he knew the admins. I thought he was bluffing so i still stood in the game. Eventually at some point he left the game and then a couple mins later i was permanently banned from the officical SOT discord with no warning at all, not even a message from the mods or a message from the bot. I really want to play SOT but i can't play if the only people that take the game seriously are on a discord that I am banned from. Can somebody from rare or one of the deckhands take a look into this?? My discord tag is xSour Budx#4939. I have proof and pictures.

    This person was not the one who tried to witchunt me, this was the guys friend, and he stated that he was the one trying to join the crew.


  • ahoy there mates.. i was sailing with a friend moments ago when the server kicked me and i got this error messege when trying to rejoin.. the error is not even on the errors list of the game .. i already made a suport request but i guess it will take a while to get and answer.... maybe someby here knows about this error and can help a fellow pirate
    thanks

  • Basically, I can't get my game to run anymore. I had my installation since the game first came out and recently I had re-imaged my PC and installed the game as usual. I think after a patch or two (I don't remember) the game stopped working.

    When I launch the game, the game window comes up and it shows me the skull login, then it closes and the game doesn't run anymore. When I hit play again, the game launches and closes much faster.

    Here is a small clip of what happens: https://streamable.com/w78vi

    I would appreciate some direction on how to fix, I have been dying to get back into this game.

  • You ever wondered who the ferryman is and where the Ferry of the Damned comes from? Steam Crow explains...

  • I need to change the idiom to Spanish:(, I play in PC, help me pls :c


  • So I'll make it very short

    Campers, this is ridiculous, camping the reaper hideout isn't pvp, come get me and the chest out on the waters. I see this almost eve;ry server i join with an active chest.

    From now on, I ask those of you to join me that hate this as much as i do, when you see campers, take your chest out to the RED OCEAN,

    If your going to camp me so I have no chance of getting it, your not getting it either.

    I love pvp in this game, and don't care if I lose a chest to pvp, but campers, gimmie a break this should be adressed

  • Hello there everyone! I've been playing this game since day one. I finally got to the pirate legend Hideout. I heard the Becalmed song on the banjo, I searched the web all over and youtube, to try and find the banjo tabs for the song, but had no results come up for it. Would anyone know where I can find the banjo music tabs for this song. I really would like to learn this song on the banjo. Your help would be very apprecvery.

  • I was playing with my friends and I noticed that the sails weren’t all the way down so i put them down them my friend goes “WHAT ARE YOU DOING” and I say “oh what you can’t see” and he says “yes but it makes you faster if you keep the sails up a little bit. That’s a big boy fact.

  • was having a nice game with friends and doing a gilded voyage and we had our fun and got all of our treasure from it and while at a trader a ship of noobs tried to pvp outside of arena mode and it was funny cuz it showed they got so salty over the fact we had treasure and other loot and they couldn't find any.

    I don't care who judges me for this but if your gonna pvp just go to arena mode as its where pvp is not outside of it cuz u look really stupid trying to pvp on ships who mind their own business. so for the salty pvp players dnt rage when us pve players find stuff before u.

  • If say in the future updates their was a tall tale and in that tall tale you get to make a choice. The choice is to side with flameheart or help protect with the pirate Lord who's side are you choosing. Also when you choose you can only unlock say a certain ship set and the other is permanently locked. Basically this would create a good vs evil in the sea of thieves world. And a new storyline unique to your choice.

    I choose flameheart.


  • Hey so I don't post much but I really wanted to hear peoples story's about kraken kills, The kraken used to be my favourite part of the game and I remember one time about a year ago I was randomly sailing around and a kraken spawned but I was completely out of cannonballs so I killed it using a sniper it took roughly 30 mins to do so and I felt really accomplished after.

    I look forward to reading your storys.

  • I just wanna post here to say that I love exploring the water. I hope to find more landmarks and treasures in the water, but I really would like to say that I REEEEEAALLY WANT A DIVER SUIT!!!! PLEASE? I spend my time mostly in parties, on Galleons with friends searching the water. I wished they'd add harpoon guns and that came true, so please gimme my old rusty and dinky diver suit outfit. They don't even have to give us water immunity, I just want to look like the ghost diver from Scooby Doo! Gotta give it a referencing name too.


  • For some reason I could get a help request so im going to post this here. This https://xboxclips.com/BalanceB3ast/666a8cbe-23e5-4ffb-8271-b74b94da602e Has been happening to be for a few days now and the game is completely unplayable. Im considering getting an Ethernet cable to my xbox (Which is in the basement), but I want to make sure it is an internet problem. What do you guys think?

  • Ahoy! It seems the reapers hideout is starting it's construction and heavy fortification. At the core and below the stranger is what seems to be a hole with a glowing red aura, what could this possibly be and why is it being protected?!

  • First look, trailer etc..
    Does this interest any PC players?
    It would cost approx $1200+ to build a PC to compare to this. And this will sell for probably $400/600

  • There is no ship to ship pvp in this game canons do like no damage at all and all someone does is jump off with a gunpowder barrel and take you out in one its actually trash i thought i would be in luck when arena came out but nah they had to throw in digging up chests for points.

  • Hey,

    I’ve been so busy so I’ve not played in over a year until recently, so today I thought I would have a good session but customise the ship then realised as well as all the new stuff added the founders sails had gone as well as some other stuff or was I just overwhelmed and did notice them?

  • Hey I been a while since the game has been out, so I am just doing to ask will we ever get an Eye of Reach for the Ferryman set? I would love to see how it looks. I hope we get it someday.

  • Hey all! I was wondering if any of you may know where I can find the artwork for the tattoo on this pirate's chest.

    alt text

    I usually see it much smaller, but the fact that they have it in a larger resolution for something like a pirate's chest makes me wonder if there is any high-res image with this logo that we can access.

    Thanks so much!

  • I saw another player's brief video on another site showing the pirate attempting a saber dash off of the bowsprit only to go backwards. I didn't think much of it until tonight. I was, of course, minding my own business.....because that's what I do. For the most part. Sometimes.

    Anyway, I had a skelly sloop pop up on me next to Lone Cove. No worries. Solo on one of these is easily managed. However, I did catch a cannon to the kisser. This didn't knock me back off of my ship, it knocked me towards the skelly ship. When I surfaced, I looked in the direction I expected my ship to be and I was between the two sloops. Is this some kind of voodoo or do I need to lay off the rare tea?


  • Ahoy me pirate friends. I finally start playing this game as a person who like pirate life more than anything. I'm having so much fun rn, in 2 days only I killed the shark and pirate ship and the kraken already and it was too much fun however I got a question. These 3 enemies appeared in a row and then another player ship came out of nowhere. They were so experienced and they chased me and my friend for an hour. Our only chance was to crash an outpost and give the loots to the npcs as fast as possible and actually we managed to do that. But I wonder if the game actually makes it so your ship getting visible to other ships who is in the same spot but in a different layer or something if you have so much loots in your ship?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Keep seeing people banging on about them on social media. What is it?

  • Hello!

    I just downloaded Sea of Thieves on my Windows 10 Desktop and was very excited to play. I've been playing on Xbox but decided to try PC. I've run into a problem.

    "Your Graphics Device Does Not Support Shader Model 5. Please Upgrade Your Graphics Device To Play The Game."

    I'm playing with an Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset Graphics Device and can't find any updates. Do I need a newer computer to play?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,
    Sorry if this topic has been covered before or if this is the right place to ask. But I have gamepass ultimate and have installed SoT on both my PC and Xbox one X. But I can't seem to play with my son at the same time. Every time I launch the game it says "You're signed in to this game on another device". But the funny thing is, on the first day I got this, it was working. After that I can no longer play with my son. I have my main xbox account with gamepass ultimate and I have created a normal Microsoft account for my son. Do I have to buy purchase another gamepass for my son for us to play together?

    Thanks for any help!

  • I cant pick up any gilded voyage in game from duke, even though I have no quest. My gamertag is Okiiee I need help with this, so I can play thanks.


  • I was in the middle of voyage to complete last couple time-limited gift stash voyages just now and only had a 30min warning servers would reset!

    This was not nearly enough reaction time and I wasn’t able to finish before reset — there should be a 2hr notification and a 90min countdown to give pirates enough reaction time to complete what their currently doing.

  • So i recently got back into sea of thieves. I would like to find some chill decent ppl to play with. My gamertag is XxgraffixsxX on xbox. Feel free to leave gt n ill add you to play

  • Does anyone know if they will ever offer the Obsidian Ship set again? I completely missed out when they were giving it away through Twitch.

  • Ahoy fellow pirates! I would love for you guys to check out my latest piece and let me know what you think, it has a little backstory too (Check the link)!
