Lmao you list only PS4 servers and don't even show a timestamp to know whether it's on-peak or off-peak for that area and *that's* your evidence that they are failing? oh my ??

i don't need a time stamp.i just shot your "opinion" down but if you must be pedantic about it it was peak time.also im not going to go get ark on 3 machines just to prove my point,i proved it perfectly,you are wrong.THERE IS NO TIME STAMP ON PS4 lmfao

i also never said it was failing either,you're trying to put words in my mouth and failing.empty servers isn't success and neither are capped servers if they were even capped to begin with.the game could be 10 times more successful,you are just imposing "your" version of success which is not reality...

You and I differ on a fundamental level. My point stands.

To deserve respect for being would insinuate that respect can't and shouldn't be lost.  This is a naive way of thinking.  Again,  I'll reiterate.  There's a certain level of respect due to all new encounters.  Following a new encounter, every interaction stands to increase or decrease that level of respect.  Failing to show that initial level of respect, btw, is an interaction that would decrease said respect.

How about the ark devs learn to communicate better? That might earn them some respect. Also perhaps they can figure out how they are going to fix the problem they created when they released an update that locked all Mac players out for 9 day, which for some of us means we lost everything we had on our main servers and now also have a 9 day deficit in joining the new map. When they can tell me how they are going to fix that then perhaps they can have some respect, until then I’ll continue to consider them worthless.

I'm guessing OP doesnt have 1000's of hours of playtime since pretty much anyone who defends WC haven't been playing the game long enough. Great concept for a game and there is plenty they have done right but there is SO SO much they have done wrong. Worst gaming company I have ever had to deal with with any game I have put considerable time into.
Among hardcore Ark players they are a joke of a company.

Then why do not you personally write the entire list of claims "hard-core" players.
That would be pretty  interesting to read it.

By the way, most of the problems which we had in ARK created not by devs itself - problem in comunity and *hardcore* players in particular. 

All of these problems with a balance in PVP, dino, nerf flyers and etc. - it's the players fault mostly. Devs also made their faults but players did everything just worse.

Would be they nerf flyers so dramaticaly if they wouldnt be so OP and overused  by everybody (especially in PVP ?) 

The same with megatribes - problems not in tribe size, problem in people who ENJOY when others suffer. 

 

Just look at Day Z (when it was just an arma 2 mod ) - people had a lot of options how to communicate with each others but human nature was the reason that everything turned into a thoughtless call of duty with pew pew.

Problem in us. 

 

But devs should fix a lot,  everyone can agreed about these.

It's a sandbox game. They signed up for being responsible for the player actions in the sandbox (IE what they allow to happen) when they made a sandbox game

Can't say I agree. I don't hate the devs, or despise them in any, but a lot of their decisions are really poor. I've played the game since its original launch on Xbox One(Mostly Singleplayer), and it's my most played game ever. I've done it all: Max Speed Pteras, Giga-killing Rexes, spawned over 50 Titans on the map, etc. etc.. I've completed the story(Except Extinction) five times now. And the whole time, I've been critical of the devs. Their communication is poor to say the least. I remember reading the Titanosaur dossier for the first time, "Nomadic Tribes use this as their main base" or something like that. It was gonna be great. Then, the Titanosaur released, and it was a 24 hour tame. For me on Singleplayer that wasn't an issue due to the server setting, but it was my first clue into the dev's true nature. The dossier has subsequently been changed at some point, if I find it I will share it.

The devs deserve a good majority of the criticism they get. Extinction has by far been the buggiest expansion they released, despite being the most anticipated and hyped. It feels like it was never properly tested. Just yesterday I walked out of the Sunken Forest only to have my Velonasaur teleport somewhere under the map and one of my Gachas disappeared entirely. They don't deserve hate, but the devs do need to start listening. Do you know why the Giga was never completely balanced out or fixed? The devs waited for us to forget they existed. They waited for different creatures like the flyers, Wyverns, and soakers to occupy our attention. And now the Giga is at best a B- tier raid creature due to its poor design. Is that really a good way to develop a game?

To be fair, it's completely balanced as a B tier raid creature. Sure, they don't have the 1.5 million HP and 6k base damage they used to have, but they still do the most damage in the entire game and occupy an entire swath of PvP and PvE roles making it one of the most bred, used and effective dinos in PvP

Am I the only person who think that the ark devs deserve a lot more respect then they get? And I bit more appreciation??? The way people comment on their twitter posts and page posts is just disgusting!! Show them some respect. You obviously enjoy the game as your still playing it. Yes it's buggy yes it's glitchy but come on guys!!! It's a HUGE online game with A LOT of things going on in the game! i don't know the littlest thing about developing games ... but I'd imagine it isn't easy!! Especially a game of this size ! With structures and creatures that I'd imagine require a lot of mechanics? I think we really need to lay off them and show them how much of a great job they are doing! Yes they make mistakes ... they maybe make a lot of mistakes but I bet they don't ever rest until they have fixed their mistakes ... their constantly on the job ... it's not like your average job where you go home and forget about work till the next day . No no no .... I'm sure ark never leaves their mind and they are always coming up with new ways to make gameplay better ... a lot of their bug fixes and improvements go unnoticed to the average player but A LOT of work goes into this game daily . START APPRECIATING IT :(❤️. You guys are doing an amazing job. Keep up the great work ❤️ 

I'd love to show them respect, but so far they have delivered a product subpar to what was promised to me. The Linux version is riddled with texture issues, render issues. Heck, we don't even have music to hear or the sun to look at. They have always claimed for UE to support Vulkan properly, yet UE now has switched to Vulkan as the default while ARK devs have not. With a basic failure such as this, there's just nowhere I can go. The response from ARK devs has been lackluster at best, we literally have to @ them everytime the client is completely broken, etc. Due to the lack of ground clutter ragnarok's plains like a massive pile of poop. It's just such a shame and it's aggravating that the devs refuse to fix these kinds of things.

The animations on the characters (and dinos) also leaves much to be desired. The gun sizes are too big for most character without any discernible reason. Some caves/dinos are poorly balanced for certain gametypes (snow cave PvE is almost impossible thanks to the purlovias jumping out of the ground and chainstunning you to death). And while the game is as unfinished as it is, the devs are releasing new expansions and barely look back at the content they made in the past.

Yea I use to be you too. All of us did. Just like any bad relationship though there comes a time when its time to just let it go and move on. Either play and be content with what you have or save your time and emotions for another game that actually listens. These debates neither help nor hurt the game more than it is already doing to its self. All they do is rile everyone up for no reason just to have the same outcome in the end by the people that matter. silence.

The Giga was designed to be the Apex Raid Creature. I'm one to think the Giga needs a rework to bring it in line with the other creatures in the game. The devs tried too hard to find a sweetspot between the Rex and Titan(Normal creature Vs. Raid creature), which doesn't work. I get that it's "balanced", but for the wrong reasons.

Lay off the devs?! Is this a troll post? If not I will do my best to help you understand why there is such hate for the devs of a game we love so much:

Great game in the hands of a horible company. The 'Great Migration' was a perfect example of this. In a move to satisfy both the wipe and don't wipe crowds Wild Card decided to wipe 'some' servers upon launch. And a move I agree with. Now this is reasonable. However, they gave everyone only 5 days to do it. And oh wait, it gets better. In some game servers running special modes (primitive plus) they never turned on the ability to transfer! So two days into the 5 day transfer period to escape deletion they finally turn it on and we enter a mad rush to get our many tames and items and characters to the new server. On the 5th day Wild Card puts out a patch (never a smooth roll out) and breaks transfers. More than 24 hours BEFORE transfers close, the transfers close! And, in a true scumbag move Wildcard doesn't postpone deletion. Many characters who were going back and forth between servers to move items were now trapped along with many tames that were about to be uploaded on these doomed servers. Minutes turned into hours and finally the deadline came and many of our tribemates stood on obi transport pads with their tames and items hoping Wild Card would allow them to not be deleted. But it never happened. Thousands of hours of work gone. And the final insult. Never a word on this issue from the dev team despite hundreds of posts on the forums.

Don't get me wrong. The game is great. I will continue to play it. If you are thinking of buying this game, do so with one warning from me. Only proceed if you are okay with without warning having everything you worked for taken from you due to Wild Card for no good reason.

I have 7350 hours in the game.

TLDR: Great game, you will fall in love with it, and Wild Card will rip your heart out spit on your face and ask you to buy their next DLC.

I have been playing for a long time ... not long after it came out as pre release ?‍♀️ Trust me Iv had a lot of issues in the past haven't we all but I still rate this as one of the best games i have played by far with most definitely the best concept ... the only thing keeping it from the number 1 spot is the lag ... I can deal with the bugs or at least get over them mostly ? The bugs that take top spot of annoyance is when Dino's vanish of the face or the ark ... that's great fun.
