ARK at Gamescom! First-look at Upcoming Content!

Recommended Posts

As happy as I am for this game reaching launch, I really hope it keeps to its original concept of story less survival with a classic or survival mode. I believe that the older dinosaurs deserve their touch ups and remodels, as well as retouches on the new ones when they get around to it. Most importantly, I hope Primal Survival gets back into the workshop. There are still a lot of things that need to be fixed or changed, such as breeding mechanics. As well as things we wish to be implemented, like various vocals for our tames.

 

Best of luck in the end for WC and Instinct.

Awe... That's unfortunate, I would love a Tek monkey throwing Tek poop from my shoulder 

I was thinking a tek monkey would have a little tek rifle and/or shoulder mounted cannon. Maybe a little tek monocle like some characters in science fiction have.

"Look out! He's got a gun!"

With all this tech gear we'll be playing Star Trek survival soon.  Once you go tech you don't even need dino's,  All low level weapons are useless.  I remember 2 years ago having spear fights on the beach and loving it.  Now were flying through the air without dinos and a spear cant even hurt you.  What's next Tech Buggies and Tech Tanks.  We can already fly so we don't need Tech Jets, but that may come next anyway.  All the basics like wood and thatch are useless so why even have them.  I think tech was a step too far and they should have used their time to better develop the usefulness of their basic items.  The survival game I fell in love with 2 yrs ago is now lost to a game about just leveling up till its time to build something worth building and passing up on thatch and wood even stone.  I prefer primitive +.

Yo that is lit and did anyone noticed that in the end the argentavis was going more faster so this could mean... oh yeah!!! And just a question how in the world do I make those jerboa emoji lol

I surely hope they bring back movement speed. Taking that away was so dumb.  Such a terrible "fix" to the ptera bombing.

Well it's still a game preview, they can still do what they want as of now until the 29th unless they delay it again. The risks of buying a game preview is that things may change, but at least they give you a notice ahead of time so you can get you dino's and look for another server. So I really don't see why people like you get so mad.

Would it be possible to get a reward system in place for surviving consectutive days on the ark or something similar, possibly a gather bonus (for tools) or xp bonus that builds up over time and is lost on death (2% a in-game day) with a cap of 20% for gather rates or something as it is there is no penalty for dying and no reward for surviving. I just think it would help the "grab and run" methods for a lot of stuff like artifacts, cave drops and even things like early game organic polymer farming or loading up that drop next to the metal spawns with raw metal just to claim on other side of the map after dying or fast traveling.  It may also help bridge that gap between the large active tribes and the smaller active tribes building up with an effective bonus %. But all in all the bonuses shouldn't compete with ways large or experienced tribes can work together and use high level farming Dinos and xp boosts like (broths/lystros/toilets) to achieve greater results it would just be a way to reward the players that actually survive on their way up the tier list.

I must say I am very disappointed in this game right now. I started a few months ago and yes I have had a great time playing, yet I feel for the people who started years ago. You gave notice on Sat or Sun last week of server deletions. So 4 or 5 days notice in the middle of an event. Then gave another event until tonight like that softens the blow of people losing all their time and effort. Then your choice of the word "legacy servers"? Founders servers is more like it. None of the problems would have existed if your game wasn't buggy as raptor and you could easily dupe items. A friend of mine duped items in another game and was banned swiftly. So you delete a raptor ton of server because "you" couldn't fix hackers and cheaters from cheating in your game, then decide to call the remaining servers "legacy servers" and make it so people couldn't, at the very least, move their raptoring chars to the new servers let alone anything else? I mean seriously who the raptor does that? 

I just started prepping for boss battles and even though I lucked out and my server isn't going anywhere right now, I have the feeling it's only a matter of time. So why would I bother even playing anymore? I can't speak for everyone but I'm a relatively new customer and I already see the poop you pull after a few months, I feel bad not only for the existing players losing all of their poop, but also all of the new players you are going to dupe. In my short time here I have been plagued with disconnects at the absolute worst times, game breaking updates, game breaking raptors that with high movement speed can't even traverse ten feet without lagging tremendously or causing massive frame dips, spawning inside a base with no way to leave, flying a mount into an un-rendered base and almost getting trapped among numerous other bull poop bugs that take hours or days to fix. 

I seriously hope that with launch day you get enough money to fix this raptoring game and make it last.

I wonder how the game will run at release when approaching loads/huge structures like the trailer. Sure hell it doesn't look/run like that in game on console right now.

 

bullsh!t, i've been playing this since day one of xbox1 and it runs fine with bases like that shown in the trailer, me and my boys have a structure twice that size in trees and one on regular ground area that loads in perfectly fine, it all depends on your internet when it comes to consoles. oh btw i have a gen 1 xbox1 so yea...the game runs good regardless of the operator's intelligence level.

I love playing your game ARK! (other than all the duping on legacy servers)

When ark was a Preview at least I could play the game, I have yet to play your game even though I have virtually stared at my t.v. for 25 hrs waiting to get into a Ragnarok server.. It was ok, that the servers came up 17 hrs later than expected, but it is too much for me to stare at all the full official servers that I hopelessly cant get into.

It isn't appropriate how poor your communication is with the purchaser. It is just disrespectful now. I have wasted time and asked others to waste their time for me to play your game that I now understand isn't ready. I had a 17 man xbox crew on stand by for 15 hours waiting to get into Ragnarok and now this wont be happening. I dont care to enjoy your game anymore, too much headache dealing with your lack of leadership to take responsibility. Please tell me how I can get my money back and add on scorched money too.

So this is why the "state of the game" is utter sh*t huh? You spent all this time on expansions while the core game has been floundering for the last two years. Great ideas, great promise for the game, just absolute sh*t developers. Issues happen, but what they've chosen to focus on instead of addressing serious issues in their game including balancing issues is ridiculous. Flyers are still broken and the game is fully released. They promised for months to fix known bugs after all their content was out for the base game, never happened. Not one major issue was fixed. Some small ones, but the ones that absolutely ruin the game weren't. Probably won't ever try another wildcard product again until they can get their sh*t together. Honestly the game was better 8 months ago, seeing as none of the bugs got fixed anyways at least back then they didn't break the good things they had going for it. Sad to see such great potential in a game get killed by developers that don't know what they're doing.

since ark is being bought by hundreds of younger children, ark really needs to boost there stats. I don't mean 6x or higher, i know about ten kids at my school that bought ark ( me being one of them ). I was the only one that continued playing, they did not just quit to play another game they quit because it is so hard to start off in a new server in ark. it took some of my friends around 30 minutes to build a decent base in a server. ( running out of stamina, starving, no water, dilo, other players ) and then once you build it all you start grinding for a bit, you log of then you could come back having your base half destroyed.

this used to drive me crazy even with a tribe.

thanks.

Umm, no offence dude, but its a survival game... The whole point is to die and learn from your mistakes. Especially in Ark.
