Wipe Official Servers

Suggestion

Posted (edited)

After almost 2 years of constant breeding, every larger group now has incredibly mutated dinos that are nowhere close to what the game was originally balanced around. This means that dinos like Rhinos or Therizinosaurs deal much more damage and are much harder to kill than they were 1.5 years ago when the game released. Politically, the game is currently very stale, with alliances constant, no big conflicts and many people leaving the main cluster for others clusters or other games for a fresher and more exciting experience. A wipe would easily reset breeding back to its original state and bring these dinos back down to what they were originally, and bring back many players that have left over the last year.

 

edit: im talking (mostly) about the Official PvP network, non-legacy, main cluster)

turning off breeding in conquest servers would be a great idea (if not done already)

and asking for plain wipe of all servers just makes you sound like some loser who got wiped and wants revenge through some obscure political schemes on the forum, so stop it, it won't happen

if the servers are not fun anymore let them get bored of the game routine till their dinos starve to death, on my server there were spammers from asgard tribe asking us to join their server, and we all know why, they're looking for slaves to feed their dinos, just let them get sick of it

I'm sure smalltribes servers are/will be dying. Normal official servers have been dead for a long time thanks to megatribes. The biggest issue at the moment is that any server you see maybe has 35/70 people online, but once you join you wont find any bases. You know why? Because everyone has mesh bases everywhere. There are actual mesh wars going on where people are trying to find the mesh bases of the people who meshed their mesh base. That is how the game is right now. 

We need official server wipes AFTER meshing is fixed to get everyone out of the damn walls, so the game can be played as it was intended OR we need new servers like Classic PvP. I'm confident that ALOT of people will come back to play. I know at least 10 people in my list alone who would be back to play and i'm only 1 person.

guys ... its a survival game.  People cheating , glitching,  meshing is all part of the experience.  Evolve --  its in the title of the game.  Adapt be smart and you will survive!   Im on console ps4 pvp official.  Just hit level 100 since starting in January, EVER.    3 man tribe always getting over powered by these megas but guess what... i run and hide my stuff when i have to. . I switch out servers when i have to.  if your lazy in the game,  someone who is not will get you.   Survive- Evolve- Adapt to the bullpoop cheaters.    

 

If you are a low level trying to make it to the top... you will be raided at least 20 times.  Don't get frustrated because each time you build it will be better then the last.  lol, and you need the experience points anyway lol 

 

p.s.

I think rail gun shoots through to the cheating meshers, and a parasaur can detect in mesh aswel.   And if all else fails well im sorry ARK but if you yourself need to go in the mesh to kill off raiders, you should because they gona take your stuff you spent time for and you can  submit as many tickets as you want.  You know you're not getting your stuff back lol.   

GL guys. 

 

p.s. #2.

if you cant beat em, maybe join em?

So I've seen a lot of activity around this topic and I thought I would post my opinion cause why not. I'm going to break this down into three parts. Reasons for a wipe, What to do before a wipe, and what this should achieve. 



REASONS FOR A WIPE:

Many people are agreeing that the Official servers have become stale and are pretty much just a playground for tribes in the big alliances. Dino breeds have become suuper strong - good job breeders - but have gotten so strong that they remove competitiveness for smaller tribes. most servers are either getting griefed every day or have huge tribes built on them with heaps of spam. I am making these comments as someone who has played in mega tribes, started in a smaller tribe recently and am currently playing in a alpha tribe in one of the alliances. Also grand scale PvP is pretty horrible abused by DDoS attacks and server capping.

the official cluster also has some pretty major points of inequality between new and old tribes. things such as the new kibble system where older tribes benefit from A) still having working old kibble that is much easier to make then new kibble and B) having already got a lot of tames such as griffins and rock eles with the easier kibble system for them

 

NOTE: I believe this should only effect PvP, I do not play on PvE servers and can not speak for them.


WHAT TO DO BEFORE A WIPE:

It is important that things change before a wipe is even considered otherwise everything just goes back to where it was before.
1) limit Tribe size to 20 player tribes
2) Rework alliances to not be two ways and instead be given to individual players who have normal alliance perks within the tribe.
3) make tribes exist across all servers. example: if I was in tribe X on server 1 and then joined server 2 I would still be in tribe X with all the same people.
*
4) rework the necessity for foundation spamming. foundation spamming is a pretty fundamental and defining part of ark pvp. it contributes to the unique war scenarios where you see tribes pushing against each other to gain ground. It is important to keep this fun PvP style alive but remove the server lagging foundie spam that creates it. I suggest introducing an item that has a lot of hitpoints and locks enemies out from building in the area around it, this area should be 5X the size of a single foundation. 
*
5) cap out a dinosaurs mutations at 20. currently there are ways to endlessly mutate dinos. 
*
6) reduce the cost of crafting ARBs.
*
7) hard cap the player speed at 150%. 
im sure there are more changes that could help make ark more fun post a wipe.
 


WHAT THIS SHOULD ACHIEVE:

1, 2, 3) These changes will shrink the sizes of tribes and a tribes effective player count when PvPing. this should almost entirely wipe the competitiveness of mega tribes and would also cap the extreme growth rate that you see some of the tribes achieving. This should hopefully also stop the Slot capping meta and without that hopefully also reduce the need for DDoS attacks. 
*
4) this should clear up lag on servers whilst also retaining the fun style of PvP that foundation Spam produced. I would think that the item that protected an area would also have the ability to be powered to further increase its hitpoints. 
*
5) this would be a soft cap on the dino stat growth rate. it would still be possible to have competitive stats as you can find wild dinos with better base stats but it would also stop any dinos from becoming too strong. 100Khp paracers come on.
*
6) this should hopefully counter offline raids a bit more, offlining will always be meta as it is the easiest way to wipe a base.
*
7) this shoud just make true PvP without dinos a little more interesting, we really don't need little women with underbites running around faster then any dino in the game.

My first comment was just to rile up the pve players commenting on this thread, most down voted lol obviously worked. 

 

But this will will just kill the game more so then the badly thought out turret cap did. I bet nearly everyone that I know that still plays would move on to another game and never look back, and all the people that quit wouldn't even consider going back. 

 

Doesn't matter though they said in one of the past crunches that this won't be happening thank goodness.

Ark on console is dead. The lines are to good and the game is stale. It’s impossible to build up anymore because of the way everyone plays right now. A solution to this would be yearly wipes or continue to add new clusters such as Classic every so often
