  • Community Crunch 265: Minigun, Noglin, Small Tribes Update and More!

    Fresh off the  Federation Crop Plot, Shadowmane, and the Loadout Mannequin images, we're following up this week with more images of upcoming Genesis II content.  

    Canoe

    Have a joy ride with the tribe or go for a relaxing fishing session.  

    Convenience is key with a canoe that can be picked up and placed down in any body of water and is great for storing your consumables and freshly caught fish!


    Noglin

    Don't be fooled by Noglin's adorable looks.  Behind that cute face is a mind-bending surprise - the ability to take control of enemy creatures, tames, or even other humans!


    Minigun

    Who needs to be accurate when you're firing a massive barrage of bullets to keep your enemies under pressure.  When you're not wielding it, place it in stationary mode to improve its accuracy and clear targets around corners!

    Small Tribes Update

    As previously announced, the Small Tribes Rules have been updated and made more stringent to address some of the pain points you’ve experienced.

    Along with this comes the need for those sharing defenses to move those defenses or for some tribes to relocate altogether, depending on the location. 
    The full rules can be found here if you’d like to go over them

    We’ve noticed there hasn’t been much progression in this area and we’re past the end date of April 23rd!  

    Because of this, we’ve decided to give players two more weeks as we’d much prefer not to have tribes wiped by enforcement. Let’s address a few questions that have come up from the community to make sure the cave/shared defenses rule is crystal clear. We’d like to take this time to clear up any misconceptions players may have gotten from the last post. 

    • Sharing Center Ice Cave is against the spirit of the rules, irrespective of the fact small and large sides can theoretically be regarded as different defenses, they are quite directly benefiting from the presence of each other in that location If a tribe hasn’t relocated (or forcefully taken both sides) by the end of the two-week extension, enforcement will opt to wipe the base on the small side. 
    • Valguero Underground entrances cannot be blocked. Images showing limits for defenses near chokes are shared below. Multiple tribes can live inside but they must not share defenses in any way. For example, a tribe in tree and a tribe on large plateau with their own unique defenses is fine. A tribe at the bottom of the tree and a tribe at the top equates to shared defenses: the defenses at the bottom must be breached to reach the tribe at the top. In this example, the tribe at the bottom would be wiped by enforcement.

    image (8).jpg

    cheat spi 307462 -148205 -32354 75.56 -27.47 (location)

    Enforcement will begin to take action on these and other similar cases after the 15th of May. 

    These changes may just be the start, but they’ve set the stage for possible fine tuning in the months ahead. 
     


    EVO Event

    well, can I just stick up for those who read the forums and not twitter?
    we'd prefer to have ALL info equally diverted or at the very least updated (commentary works), so we don't have to log in for one little update.
    this is just for those forum-only readers. hope this helps.

    You can stick up for whoever you want to, I was just informing you that they did up the rates to 2x. I provided the link so you may check for yourself, instead of just taking my word for it.

    fine by me. I don't get everything right away. I'd explain why, but it's personal. besides, why explain it in the public anyways, as I said it's personal.

    I'm hyped for the minigun. I'm gonna act like heavy from TF2 and just blast every dino with the gun I'd call Sasha. the last words they hear? simple:
    "I am heavy weapons guy. and this.. is my weapon"
    they gonna get beat.

    im happy for it too but i don't want it to EAT my ARB

    on our sever we uses that as money and plus, APB are not used to much.

    The mini-gun better not be like the cannon...

    it's a deployable machine gun/turret. ever read descriptions? plus, to add on, DO YOU NOT SEE THE BULLETS FLYING AND FIRING FROM MULTIPLE SPOTS IN THE BACKGROUND PICTURE FOR THE MINI GUN ITSELF!?

    Edit: seeing as some other comments have said otherwise about your comment, I'm sorry for my behavior. I just didn't understand since I don't play in tribes. and no, I don't think the minigun is anywhere near the cannon. call of duty games may be able to help with that, just a recommendation.

    minigun raiding?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!!???!?!?!??!!?!?!?!?!?!??!? but in all seriousness I don't think that the minigun is a base destroying tool, I see it as a base defense and front line weapon (front line being of course the line in which you keep most of the soakers and hard hitting animals, you know, just to keep the enemy away)

    They'd do that or SOMETHING if they cared. They don't. Delays and bugs that won't ever be fixed, but hey we get a minigun.  Maybe...

    They do care, they just don't do evo events every weekend because what would the point be if every weekend was always gonna be amped? they do evo events every 2 weeks (maybe 3) a month which is plenty. they've already boosted the official stats so it is easier. And i say it time and time again, Ark is a game with many bugs (good and bad) and they try to get those bugs fixed but im sure theyve realised this by now but its probably never going to be completely fixed. this is why they are making Ark 2 as they now have more experience and more staff to assist in making games unlike 2014-2015 SW which had 15 people working on it. But hey Miniguns

    Just wipe small tribes, everyone wants it

    i dont want a small tribes wipe, my mate and i were planning to move to smalls and it wont be pleasant if we move and get stuff going and it all goes away. official servers are hard to start on especially when everyone is raiding everyone for the tiddely-winks of resources they have. i say just leave officials as they are and if it all burns to sh/it then wipe it.

    not to assume anything, but I thought you were austrailian when you said 'mate'. but yeah, I'd go with your response. I'm trying to think in the online perspective so much here. there's always some sort of person who may doubt WC, but yet they're just trying to make the game a bit more fair.

    again as I say: a minigun can fire a bunch. this may just be a mini-version of the big mountable turret already in game
