Ark: Aberration

This is ironic. I don't know the entire context of what he said, but It tells potential cutomers and playerbase the vanilla gameplay is not satisfying enough to keep players in game.

What it tells me is with their current architecture and limitations they cannot possibly keep enough official servers up to satisfy the land hungry, dino hoarding population of their game who for some reason think this game is a mmorpg and not a multiplayer survival sandbox.

I do care about the expansion, and I really think that what WC offers with their expansions may be worth the money. However, we should have had that promised TLC pass BEFORE Aberration. The core game needs more work before WC starts working in a new expansion. They say money is not a problem, but working on the release of Aberration before really finishing the core game is not well seen by many (including me). ARK right now costs the same as the top video games out there. And it does not feel as polished as it should be. The release of ARK was actually going from alpha to beta, not an actual final product release.

Not really.  There is a segment of folks that have difficulty understanding that the game is primarily designed around and focusing on modded content development and customized game play.  Official servers just serve as basic game play showcase servers.  There are though unofficial  servers out there that have vanilla and even more challenging than default settings/play too but typically they're very niche.

I think the expansion has a bunch of features I like the look of, some nice dinos too. Not sure how I feel about a struggle the map as it presents its own challenges but a refreshing change and some items to bring back to normal servers, should be fun.

I think overall this direction of thinking is just going to frustrate you more and more as time goes on.  Ark is, for all intents and purposes, -never- going to be finished, perfectly optimized, etc.  Games with active and progressive development never can be because each step, change, addition, etc takes those goals out of synch. Even top games have this similar issue and their forums are a'glut with lamentations in this regard.

Does that mean WC couldn't do a better job?  I most certainly think they have many areas that they could improve but there has been a consistent pattern for 2+ years with how these things go and no indication of that changing in a direction that would satisfy you or others with similar thinking.

Sorry if this has been brought up before, but I can't find the answer anywhere. I know Aberration was delayed to November, but has there been another delay or is it still set to November? Really looking forward to the new map! :) Thanks for the replies ahead of time!

It says on steam release November 2017. Thats where I got that from, as well as them announcing at TwitchCon that itll be delayed a few weeks back in October. So it has been delayed yet again?

The most clear answer is... yes. Thankfully, it will be out this year! I am guessing it will come mid to late December. Can't wait to get in on this exotic exploration! :D

Thank you! Yes, I agree this will be the best expansion yet by the looks of the trailers. So pumped!

Within context, it's harkening itself back to the stance we have regarding flyers and trivialization of content. The flyer culture is just so ingrained on people that have played the game for so long as it makes things that much easier. Why go through a wall when you can go over it, and all that. Basically, if you're too attuned to a playstyle revolving around flyers that you can't fathom trying to survive without them then there's always unofficials.

Actually no. It was in regards to a question specifically asked on the chatroll asking about  official vs unofficial server viablities(not worded in this way but if you watch the stream you'll catch as he repeats the question on camera before discussing. I know because I asked it. :)

Yes its delayed again.  In this article yesterday, CEO Doug Kennedy discusses various things and at the bottom of the article it states the dlc now will come "next month": http://www.pcgamer.com/ark-survival-evolved-studio-ceo-on-early-access-reviews-and-punching-trees/?ns_campaign=article-feed&ns_mchannel=ref&ns_source=steam&ns_linkname=0&ns_fee=0

Was this officially stated by Wild Card?

Would really like to know if it was officially delayed a second time.

I don't think it can be delayed a second time as WC have not stated a date for release yet besides it being in 2017. Yes the Steam page states November 2017, but WC have stated it will be before 2017 is over, so really even if it is December that doesn't mean it has been delayed a second time, as no date has been given like it had originally with October.

Refund is a Steam issue, so you need to speak to them.

You don't pay twice for SE, the Season Pass on Steam takes into account you already owning SE in the price.
