Duo/Trio/Tiny Servers

Suggestion

So i wan't to talk about the solo servers,i played ark for 2k hours by my own and official pvp servers and what i want to say i really enjoy pvp its just that if you're solo player and you can't find the tribe and everytime you build you get raided,and you have to grind forever to get something and then get raided i mean raiding is part of ark its just that its not fair if 6 peoples or 3peoples go 3v1 that's not fair at all,So i asked some streamers and ark community and they pretty liked my idea of ark adding the solo servers with boosted Rates for example ark-you cloud make a solo servers with a 5x gathering or 4x and some of us really don't enjoy playing unofficials and i am one of these guys so what im asking you guys to work is adding solo servers or duo server and ofcrouse with some boosted rates cause its hard to get stuff done in ark and i know thats why you have to put tons of hours in ark to get things done its just that its still very hard,especially being a solo on ark pvp servers and i really do enjoy playing this game it's just that it's not fair and i wish you guys would add some solo servers and duo servers cause peoples who dosen't have teamates to play ark with grind allot like me,by solo so i just wan't you guys to read this whole thing and see what you guys think and i can promise you guy's one thing that people  gona  play that and i'll be one of em' so thats all im asking and yea,Let us know what you guys think about that.See ya.

I too play solo on official servers, but as much as I like your idea, it isn’t necessary. I rarely get raided, because of 2 reasons. I get back up when my base and tames are destroyed, and I don’t put all my eggs in one basket. Don’t build on the beach. Build only out of stone and metal. Use fence foundations with stone walls on them to make your base look like stone. Build between 2 rocks in a forest. Good luck.

Yes. For PvE as well please, especially on consoles with few to no options. I struggle to find a server I enjoy that I'm not having to run myself with low rates that aren't swarmed with pillars and giant fortresses from 10+ person tribes. For some reason they feel that we only NEED small tribe servers for PvP because of competition. Its incredibly frustrating. I've played both but the PvE side of things really needs some love and new experiences. Either we need small clusters (all maps, one cluster, no transfers between them) for PvE and PvP or we need duo servers.

Defo agree that there should be duo servers. It will freshen up the game and get the pop up on dead legacy servers. 

However stats should be compatible for the duo tribe (I.e 5x) also like said above turret damage should be increased when offline to promote online raiding

A solo or duo server would require like ... hundreds of changes just to actually be playable.

Name three changes that would be unique to solo servers (in other words, changes that were already made for 6-person servers don't count), I'll bet you can't.

Nobody has really addressed these issues either.

1) Because those changes don't really exist (unless you can provide a valid list that's not full of silly "needed changes").

2) That's WildCard's job. Just like WildCard has control over making sure that changes for PvP & PvE work for those respective game modes. Just like WildCard has control over making sure that changes for 6-person servers are good for that game mode. Just like WildCard had control over making sure that the current game works properly with Classic mode. There's no way that WildCard would implement this without thinking about it first, while it's good for players to suggest solutions to potential problems for a single-player mode the players don't get to decide how the mode would be implemented. WildCard takes suggestions from players for every game mode, but there's no requirement that players have to address all of te possible issues in advance, because really WildCard will decide what changes, if any, are going to happen.

I suppose certain things such as offline raiding, bosses, pvp balance etc. People will definitely be doing what a lot of people do in small tribes, with the 'teaming for bosses, teamviewer if a friend is getting raided, trading dino lines' all that kind of stuff. PVP is another story, being solo or duo will encourage kidnapping like no tomorrow. Find a base, wait for the player to leave the base to farm/do whatever, stun them or throw a narc grenade - can then go raid their base at leisure. I guess for me it comes across as promoting a game style which (without changes) puts enormous pressure/strain in IRL - 6 man was already stressful enough at times, let alone with 4-5 less people.

p.s. Yes, I already saw this list.

1) Offline raiding - no changes needed, either they allow offline raiding or they don't, just like every other form of PvP.

2) Bosses - the game already has a build in system for solo'ing bosses, nothing needs to be added or changed for this.

3) Team viewer & trading - those are already illegal on 6-person servers, and while it's true that WC would have to monitor solo servers to ban people for infractions of these rules that's not something that is new or a change, it's already something that happened when 6-person servers were introduced.

4) Kidnapping - yup, welcome to PvP. Clearly the consequences of being kidnapped are potentially more painful, but then it's also more painful for a 1 or 2 person tribe to keep people captive for extended periods of time. People will have to work harder at avoiding kidnap and at keeping victims sedated. But nothing about the game actually needs to be changed for that. If someone gets kidnapped or narc-grenaded when leaving their base then they're not being careful enough for PvP, obviously they needed better defenses.

5) People choose the amount of stress they want. PvP is massively stressful compared to PvP, small tribes are potentially more stressful than standard tribes, solo PvP is potentially more stressful than small tribes - but no one is being forced to play any of these. Maybe solo play would be too stressful for you (and yes, in case you're wondering it would be too stressful for me), but that's not a reason to argue against it. You have complete freedom to play the game mode that you prefer, if other people want to play a more stressful mode that's none of your business, and no one needs to justify to you why they want it.

Cant believe there has been no mention of them adding these server types in the game it's crazy.

I couldn't care less for a new map to be fair it's the game modes and server types that will bring in more players.

New maps will bring people back dont get me wrong but for how long before they quit again because it's the same boring gameplay....

I've been awaiting trio/duo/solo official servers for sometime now. I've been in a range of tribes from duos-mega tribes and a lot of people would probably agree they have a lot more fun while being with a small group of people compare to mega tribes.

 

TPGs Megatron and Myself managed to take over a whole server by ourselves back during the legacy times, and even most recently GGs Stay Lifted, when we duo'd the raptor outta a center server and managed to take out 20-30 Dino's with just a giga and a wyvern.

 

Overall I'd 💯 say duo servers would make the game a whole lot more active and more fun than what we currently have.

you will never have the same hp dino, not the same equipment mega tribe ..your argentavis your ankylo will not be sure to come back alive from the farm.... stop imagine that the raid would be easy

the raid would be a real bargain because your house will be a target / 1vs1 and you vs 99 player in the map
Real pvp ... a lot of adrenaline ... as on pubg solo the error will be fatal

Really annoy me that wildcard havent made a solo/duo pvp server cluster, how out of touch with your players is it possible to be???

I am pretty sure the reson no one of my friends on steam play mutch ark at moment is the lack of solo duo servers. No point playing on classic or smal tribes as solo player, and joining making a big tribe is not that fun, wery hard to find serious people aswell, so better to just not play ark.

Guessing you guys are in big tribes? afraid you gonna loose easy raids??

 

I'm a solo pvp player I would not like solo\duo servers myself here's my 2 cents ..I enjoy attacking  the larger tribes .I love to snipe\kill their tame's the thrill of being hunted  would be gone on a solo server or duo server ..I can see those servers being pve at the end of the day..
