Why are theservers down for maintenance? When will the Sea of Thieves servers be back up? These are the big questions everyone in the mood for piratey adventures is looking to have answered today.
If you tried logging into the game, you may have been greeted by the Kiwibeard and Lavenderbeard errors and wondering whether or not the developers are currently working on getting the game back online.
It's never fun to boot up your game only to encounter errors like Sea of Thieves Kiwibeard, Sea of Thieves Lavenderbeard Sea of Thieves Greybeard, Sea of Thieves Fishbeard, or Sea of Thieves Strawberrybeard, especially as a new Season is about to begin.
These signify connectivity problems, which is why we've created this Server Status page to keep you informed on the game's maintenance schedule and when the Sea of Thieves servers will be back up.
Sea of Thieves Server Status
Rare has alerted players to some scheduled maintenance that will be taking the Sea of Thieves servers offline on 18th August, 2022 at 10 AM BST.
"The Sea of Thieves servers are now offline, so you’ve got some time to rest up before the rescue mission begins. We’ll let you know when you can return. Or maybe Merrick’s advertised yelping will tip you off, keep an ear out." reads a.
Sea of Thieves Kiwibeard Error
While Sea of Thieves is offline, you'll also likely see errors like Kiwibeard, Lavenderbeard, or Strawberrybeard, if you repeatedly try to connect. All three are tied to server maintenance and there doesn't seem to be much that players can do, aside from being patient.
You could take this time to do other stuff or peek at your backlog and run away, terrified by the sheer number of games demanding to be played. Or, if maintaining your sanity is a thing you enjoy doing, you can learn a new sea shanty and terrorize your friends with it via voice chat when the Sea of Thieves servers are up again.
We'll keep you posted on any other server maintenance schedules that might be coming up over the coming months, so please keep us bookmarked for the latest information.
