Sea of Thieves has officially launched in North America and the servers are playing up.
Day one of a major online title having server issues. Who could've predicted this?
It was too much to hope for smooth sailing. Players trying to join Sea of Thieves are experiencing 'Greybeard' errors, which relate to the game's matchmaking services.
Ahoy Pirates! We are aware of the Greybeard issues that some of you may be experiencing. Our team is investigating to have this sorted ASAP. We’ll update here when we have more details to share. pic.twitter.com/O41cnbmge3

Trying to get around this by going solo is generating 'Cinnamonbeard' errors, which are another type of matchmaking error.
You'll just have to be a patient pirate while this is sorted out. Maybe go watch Muppet Treasure Island while Rare bails out their servers.
We'll do our best to keep you updated on when the seas have settled.
Update 5:15pm AEDT - Both matchmaking and solo play appear to be working now. I was able to log in to both with less than a minute wait. Looks like the storm has passed, full sail ahead!
