• First day as a pirate and this happened! 😂

  • Find a Crew!

    Looking for for crew been playing the game a good bit so anyone looking help let me know playing on xbox

  • I have been playing sea of theives for a while now and I’ve seen it go through many changes but a big problem I have been facing, and especially recently is xbox one in game chat not working.
    Once and a while me and my friends can speak in game and the next day it fails to work one bit. We have tried everything from unplugging to resetting. My friends on PCs mics work in xbox party and game so it’s not mics?

  • Ahoy les pirates de mers douces ! Nous sommes de bon matelots légendaires qui aimeraient former un véritable équipage ou en rejoindre un.
    Envoyez moi vos GT ou écrivez moi merci 😁

  • When choosing food from your item wheel Raw Meats/ Fish shouldn't be equipped unless you only have Raw Meat or Manually select it from your inventory. This is to help controller players have more control over which food items they equip without binding a button since the limited inputs of a controller makes it impossible to have every button binded.

  • Hey Rare,

    About a year ago I bought an Xbox One X because I wanted to have the best of the best in hardware to enjoy my favorite game. However, I realized that this game does not allow me to take advantage of the amazing hardware inside. It limits me to 30fps and it takes at least 15-20 seconds to load into or out of the ferry of the damned or a mermaid. That is the difference between a ship sinking and a ship surviving! There should be an option to lower the resolution of the game to gain higher frames and loading times should be equal to PC. That is just something that cannot be overlooked. I watch streamers get near-instant loading times from mermaids yet it takes me 20 seconds. This is the one thing that keeps me from enjoying this game as much as I want to. Please fix this Rare.

    Thank you,

  • Hi everyone,

    I’m posting on behalf of a friend.

    My friend and I have been running through the Tall Tales for our first time. We just finished Fate of the Morning Star last night and went to start Revenge of the Morning Star and it won’t let her vote on it despite her having the Xbox achievement of finishing it. In her commendations they are all locked and says she has made no progress on any of them.

    Has anyone else run into this issue before? Could the Ships of Fortune update be causing a glitch? Any insight is welcome, thank you!

  • When I got on sea of thieves, for some reason, the servers were down. Did anyone else get this message this morning?

  • hello everyone, if you read this post please tell rare to create a 60 fps mode on xbox, even if it is only the xbox one x it would be really good and I think it would please a lot of people, sorry for my bad english, i'm french.

    I think adding a mainland port to the far west of the map would work very well for the game. The surrounding area could have islands controlled by the navy and you could get attacked by the navy if seen. And you could attack the port and get treasures confiscated from pirates.

    Why aren't shanties getting more attention?

    I feel like they are a huge part of this game and could be for example a new emporium or TT reward kind of thing. Official SoT song like: Who Shall Not be Returning, Wild Rose, Stitcher's Sorrow + We Shall Sail Together ofc, etc. could be all made into the in-game shanties.

    It would work just like emotes where u could just choose a shanty loadout you like... (Lets say 5 shanties max)

  • Was on mermaids hideaway grinding out hunters call rep. I was on the island for about 2 hours no problem. Died to a keg I didn't hear walking up. Came back like normal and the storage crates I left at my fishing spot despawned. Just wanted to bring this up.

  • Hi,
    I made a video showing the differences with load times for Sea of Thieves on 3 different consoles

  • Simple really, I play Sea of Thieves on the Xbox One S. Sea of Thieves was made for the Xbox One X, I love the game and I especially love The Arena, however, since The Arena is so poorly optimized, I am often killed and sometimes sink because of lag and long load times. I am suggesting that a graphics settings menu be added for consol players who want performance over quality. This setting exists for PC but not for console for some reason. I am a content creator and recording slows the game down slightly, all of this added on top of intense ship fights (especially on galleons) makes me feel like I'm playing on a 2005 Dell office laptop at times. I play with a keyboard and mouse plugged in so I play with PC players who are running at 60fps giving them a blatant upper hand in CQB and gunfights. I greatly enjoy the game and I would love it if a graphics adjustment setting or something was added.

    I often don't play Arena now simply because it is too laggy for my Xbox; I enjoy Arena more than adventure because of its fast-paced PvP on demand, but because of these serious performance issues I just play a different game. This is a shame because I've been playing Sea of Thieves since May 2018 and I really enjoy it but the performance is too much of an issue now. At this point I can't even play Arena for fun now I only play a couple of times a week to record a video then play something else because I'm sick of the lag

  • The past week I have been trying to play the game (regular and insider), but after a few moments my boat will start sinking and the game will boot me out and will give me the almondbeard message. I've reset my WiFi to my Xbox, reset my router, and even tried on other profiles, but I still encounter the same thing every time. Can I get any help with this issue?

  • Was playing doing fotd with my bro and someone shot to our shop and I point blanked him with the shotty and he didn’t die but then when they point blanked me I died instantly like wth either make the damage consistent or remove the weapon entirely it’s annoying when other player take a point blank shotgun blast and live but when I get point blanked it’s insta death so fix this plz.

  • Ahoy pirates! Throughout this time playing Sea of Thieves, I have come up with several ideas that I would like to share. Don't forget to leave your thoughts in the comment section below. I have a lot to explain now.

    First and foremost, the sloop customization in specific. It may not be a lot to talk about but in terms of looks, this would stand out. I am no Photoshop expert or good at drawing but just imagine this. Here is your ordinary sloop without the back end covered. Imagine an option (just like closing the hatch/windows) where you can bring down drapes or that cover material to where all sides are covered. For all PvP lovers, this adds mystery for what this ship in specific has but for all those protecting your loot, you are at a disadvantage. That is the first idea that came to mind.

    This is more simplistic to explain, interchangeable hooks, eye-patches, peg legs, and other things I may not know. For all the left handed people out there, you can add these items to your right hand, eye, or leg. This would make the character hold all weapons in the left hand. This is more of a natural feel. This was something small but pretty neat.

    Last but not least, Athena's Curse. This one I may not be the first one to think of it but if not, then I am glad I am the first person to think of this. You're basically a ghost all over your body. Green and ghostly, pretty much. However, when I was trying to think of how to earn it, I only thought of one way. Completing every Pirate Legend commendation and this is pretty ludicrous. Want to know why?

    It is because of this thing here that is stopping us from getting all commendations done. The myth, the legend, the creature not to be spotted...The Shrouded Ghost. I have only heard rumors that you have to contact Rare, pay the company to either give you the commendation or to spawn it in the game for you. I heard this from a friend and I am not going to point names out. Either way, that is the only way I could think of for a person to get the Athena's Curse, if it ever comes to his game.

    Once again these are my ideas and hopefully we can see one of these in the game. If we are all lucky, all of them. Until next time, have fun sailing the seas.

  • Hello All,

    I have an oddity I would like to report. This may have already been made known but I don't have an easy way to search the forums (Or I just don't know how to do that)

    This has only happened to me once so far.

    My right analog stick would not function on the x axis. I was in a row boat rowing to treasure left in a kraken. The kraken disappeared and when I jumped into the water to grab a chest I couldn't look left or right.

    This cleared up when I had someone harpoon me to the ship. However once the rowboat was docked to our brig I hopped on to grab some chests. The issue came back and I couldn't look left or right.

    I hopped backwards onto the ship and this issue was corrected. I did not hop onto a row boat after that.

    I hope this detail helps find a resolution to this problem.


  • Hello there,

    since the newest update and the ability to toggle off crossplay (kinda) Xbox players, who use a controller for gameplay, can't use a keyboard for communication anymore.

    Now I don't know if this is intended or not. The point of the new setting is to be matched with other players using the same peripheral equipment, but in my opinion the game should let you choose if you want to use the keyboard for gameplay, for text messages or for both.

    Communication is still important in the game and using your keyboard to quickly type messages is easier than using the pirate chat wheel and/or emotes to get your point across.

  • What are Minor Suggestions?
    These are suggestions in which is not THAT important, but to at least have in the game because why not.

    Here are my Minor Suggestions:
    Boat Trail - So when on a boat IRL of course, you will see the trail it leaves behind. Why not at that into the game, just to bring some aesthetics to the sailing experience.

    Flute - OK so...I think these will be cool having to play music on along with the other instruments that is already in the game.

    Diamonds - Uhhh...I know that Gold is the top currency in the game, but would be cool to add in diamonds as well. You have Gold, Sapphire, Emeralds, and Ruby Gems...why not add Diamonds.

    Dolphins - They will be jumping out from the waters at times, mainly in the Ancient Isles and Shores of Plenty area of the map.

    Crabs - I mean come on, they look cool, and can clamp on to your hand and will damage you at 2% of health. Like it will clamp on to you, and your character will automatically shake it off.

    I think that is all I have. What are your thoughts?

  • I thought this was fixed ages ago but it would appear that I'm wrong, me and my crew mate just completed a fort at Shark Fin Camp only to open the door to find out that there was nothing there. After spending ages on one fort this is really disheartening.
    Although I personally don't need the reputation, my friend does, and obviously it gives lots of gold.
    This glitch? Bug? Waste of time? Should've been resolved a long time ago but apparently not.

  • Ahoy there fellow pirates of The Sea Of Thieves. Due to some small disagreements with a few members of me crew...well lets just say I be on the lookout for a couple (Or even a few) new faces to sign up. Here be a few things about us and hopefully it catches ye interest.

    We are an Crew of 6 currently. (used to be 8 but remember those disagreements i told you about?...)
    We are a very respectful crew who cares a lot about anyone committed to our alliance and our jokes and banter never intend to harm anyone, only to have a small laugh.
    We accept all genders and races. doesn't matter who you are as long as you can play well with others and work efficiently. Oh and have fun at the same time.
    We are a friendly crew most of the time and we always avoid pvp whenever possible, but will attack if attacked.

    Our crew are from very different places around the globe and aren't always on together (Hence one of the reasons I am here) so we will usually be able to find a slot for you.
    Discord? If you stick with the crew long enough then you might be welcome to join.
    Do we play other games? yes we do but if you catch us on another game don't hesitate to ask.
    I hear you asking "what do we get in return" well A good solid crew, lots of gold and rep (If you need it) also quite a bit of a laugh as we often stumble upon the stupidest stuff.
    Are there any specific requirements to join? only 2. No Squeakers and no noobs please bring at least some experience along.

    Do we have ranks? working on those.
    I'll wrap up here since I've been going on a bit. But I hope I have at least interested some of ye. especially if ye are having issue finding a solid crew. Ye can msg me over Xbox Live, or Twitter @Mayorsam01 or sail over to Sanctuary Outpost where you you may find me with a mug of water and Lydia Or Keira (My Parrots) (I'm not a fan of that grog stuff)

    This be Captain Dom. Alliance Commander. (Pirate Legend 31 HC, 49 SD, 50 GH, 50 OoS and 50 MA) (Been on the seas since launch) I wish you all a great voyage and hope you will be interested to join our friendly crew. Good day.

  • So I'm not sure just when this bug began to occur but I just recently equipped my Ferryman Boots for the first time in a while. I bought the controller shortly after launch so I've had them for a long time. As such, I can speak from experience in that they never had this issue before.

    Basically—as you can see here—the boots are intended to come adorned with golden rings on the sides. They clearly display this in the thumbnail for the item.

    However, when equipped the rings are seemingly removed from the boots entirely. This is frustrating since this is an item I spent real life cash to acquire. I know the rings were visible in the past but now the icon is misleading. I've also tried it with various pants and other clothing items but the bug continues to persist.

    Does anyone have some insight into why this bug occurs and how I may be able to temporarily fix it? Does Rare know about it or have they acknowledged it? I'm not very active on these forums so please forgive me if this is something that's been brought up already and is being resolved. Cheers!

  • About a year ago I purchased the limited edition ferryman controller, I also got the code for the ferryman outfit and weapons, but after a while of using the ferryman eye of reach it just disappeared from my armoury. Does anyone know how I can get it back? Plz help rare.

  • I play on a solo sloop 99% of the time. I’ve done FOTD raid solo twice now, but decided I might as well open the crew for extra eyes and guns. Especially since there was a brig and sloop on the horizon.

    First person joins, they have a name like “Player48826844692924” (just a bunch of randomly spammed numbers), once they’re loaded in they take a banana and just stand there in the lower deck looking around, I get their attention by slashing at them. They follow me up but when I’m in the water I see them running in circles near the capstan and wheel (must’ve not seen or heard me jump in the water). I shoot at them to get their attention again, and they follow me up to the fort. Once the raid starts I quickly check the lanterns like usual, and get the active one. The guy tries shooting at invulnerable green skeletons over and over, gets swarmed and dies at the beginning of the first wave (I was running after the gunners). He respawns and comes back up no problem, only to die in the second wave to red skeletons, same reason. He leaves.

    Second person joins (some weird name I can’t remember), big fat mustache and unkempt hair, wearing a white dress, very odd. Have to get their attention too. Same issues, they try attacking invulnerable skellies, and at no point catch on that you need to use the different lanterns (even as they see me changing mine and stunning the skellies with it then shooting. This person spams the sword for some reason, even on sword skeletons that are just blocking non-stop. They die once, after which I hear cannon fire, I return to the ship to find the sloop parked up and firing. I get on, repair ship, get into a better angle, fire back. He boards my sloop only to die in a sword duel. The noob respawns at this point. Once the enemy respawns and starts firing again, I spam “Man the cannons!” while getting an angle again (enemy moved slightly). Noob straight up loads the right cannon as the sloop is pummelling us from the left, and just stares out into the fort’s pier. I run down and try to get his attention by swinging, all he does in response is gets more cannonballs from the barrel and goes back on the right cannon. I get thrown off by a cannonball, then hear him die and he leaves.

    I pummel the sloop with a few firebombs and he goes running off into the horizon with his entire top deck covered in tall flames. Tried to board my ship again and I just blunderbussed him.

  • This isn't a game breaking problem but why will they including selling empty collector's chests????? The ashen collector's ones kinda makes sense as in 'Oooh they might be cursed or have hidden meaning' so the factions are interested but selling normal empty boxes for the OoS or GH or M? Why would they be interested?! This just seems as an extra way to make a quick buck or something and adds nothing to the experience.

  • There's a major problem with the newly introduced Black Market 'Archives'. As we all know, the major rewarding factor of Sea of Thieves is having a piece of limited time cosmetics. The fact that the idea of re-releasing the exact same items with the exact same color scheme was even brought up is laughable. Many people strive to play Sea of Thieves at specific time periods to obtain time-limited cosmetics. What will be the point of trying to play the game when the updates come? To get at a cheaper price??? That won't affect anyone with millions upon millions of gold. (Unless the price increase will reach 5mil+ a piece or so, which I doubt will be the case).

    Please reconsider releasing the exact same colors of time-limited cosmetics as that would ruin the experience for anyone who joined during that time period. Adding a new color gives the player-base the missed event items themselves while giving respect to the players that played the content during its period.

    This problem is reaching an absurd level with the constant re-release of limited content ever since the release of the Mercenary Clothing Set with the Midnight Blunderbuss [Purchasable Hard-drive] following soon after, after that the Victorious Sea Dog Blunderbuss with its permanent 240 win cap after being announced as time-limited, and god knows what's next.

    It's honestly starting to feel like a scheme set up by Rare to extort money or play time from its fans. I hate to assume the worst but based on evidence from the Dev Update/patterns of re-release it seems this plan is going through.

    Please keep this part of Sea of Thieves untouched.

  • During this week I’ve been playing sea of theives loads but ive seen the kraken like 5 times so could you turn down the spawn rate?

  • Hi,

    Last weekend something weird happened while I was sailing on Devil's Roar: I couldn't see the volcanoes smoke, I was hearing the noise and I could see how the volcano was throwing up rocks, but not the smoke.

    Today it happened again but I realized it's worse: I couldn't see many important effects. This is the list I have noticed:

    • Volcano smoke
    • Fire (on surfaces, enemies or myself)
    • Water pouring into my boat
    • Water from geysers
    • Keg's explosion

    And it doesn't reset when I die (like the wind bug), I have to close the game to "fix" it.


  • If you are a pirate legend and maxed you shouldn’t get anything less then the maximum loot for that faction especially on a Athenas why am I getting sea fears and disgraced skulls when I should be getting all captains chest and villainous can you pls update that becasue why would I grind so hard just to get the same chests as low level it’s honesty not fair

  • Feedback + Suggestions

    Can you please make it Xbox vs Xbox and pc vs pc Xbox vs pc players is so unfair we have a huge disadvantage can you pls fix that it’s making my experience bad and also if you pick a sloop you should join a only sloop server it’s not fair of your a sloop and a galleon rolls up and destroys you you have no chance so can you look in to fixing that please it’s really a not good experience when playing

  • This is a simple one and I’m sure it has been mentioned in the past but having more wildlife in the ocean would be amazing. Dolphins, whales, different kinds of sharks (maybe a big great white?), bigger fish in deeper regions (i.e. - tuna) and/or giant schools of fish.

    Sea of Thieves has one of the best environments in the industry, and I genuinely feel like more diverse wildlife to fill up the ocean would make the experience of roaming the seas so much better. Imagine dolphins swimming in front of the ship or a massive whale breaching the surface of the ocean in the distance! So much potential!
