Patch Notes

Ahoy pirates!

Last week we fixed the issue which prevented players from obtaining The Fleet Protector of the Ancient Isles Commendation. We have now retroactively awarded the Commendation to all players who unlocked the Commendation before the fix was implemented last week.

This is the final week of Cursed Sails, making this week your final chance to obtain the campaign-exclusive Bone Crusher Ship Liveries! This patch has no download, as we are making server side changes during the scheduled maintenance window.

Sea of Thieves Developer Update: August 22nd 2018

Duration 3:53


  • Cursed Sails Battle Times - Battle times have been rotated to give players who can only play during fixed times the opportunity to battle for a different region each week.
    This change was made in response to community feedback.

Fixed Issues

  • Fleet Protectors of the Ancient Isles Commendation now unlocks correctly.
    Players who have met the requirements for the commendation and did not earn it before the fix have now been awarded the Commendation correctly.

Known Issues

  • The Kraken has been temporarily disabled due to performance issues.
    We are working to enable this feature as quickly as possible.
  • Merchant Alliance crates on board a ship which sinks will not float to the surface and cannot be picked up.
  • When a player receives multiple alliance offers within close proximity, accepting one alliance will form an alliance with all crews offering an alliance.
    Accepting an offer should only form an alliance with the closest crew. We have a fix for this issue which will be released in next weeks patch.
