Community Crunch 189: Public Beta, Mod Contest Voters Giveaway, and On The Horizon

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm confused so I see here where it says:

"Mod Voting Giveaway

Remember to cast your votes for the current mod contest! At the end of the contest, there will be a raffle held for each category. Voting gets you a chance to win an ARK: Collectors Edition box set that has been signed by members of the development team!"

 

But then when you go to the contest page Here, and click on one of the sections like Maps you see this:

"VOTING RAFFLE PRIZE: (1) ARK: Collector's Edition (Xbox One) Signed by members of the development team.

For every phase that you submit a vote you gain another entry for the voting raffle. The raffle will be drawn at the conclusion of the contest."

 

So according to that we are supposed to be able to vote for Every Phase to get multiple entries to win the prize... But I have yet to see, or find anywhere to actually vote for any of them. 

It's not here in this article, it's not on the contest page, it's not listed under the contest maps page, it's not listed on the contest mods page, it's not even listed under the individual entries either.

So where do we vote on the different phases?

How do we vote on the different phases?

When will we be able to vote on the different phases?

Or are we actually only going to get to vote once, and the "For every phase that you submit a vote you gain another entry for the voting raffle." A typo?

Because so far, I haven't been able to vote on the past phase, 5/30/29 - 6/29/19, or the current phase, 6/29/19 - 7/14/19, to get any entries to win in the contest.

So why can't I vote? Or find anywhere to vote?

Please help! I don't care if I win or not, while it would be nice, I just want to participate in the voting process so that maybe the map, or mod I really like, I will eventually be able to play.

Streamers and youtubers are one of the only reasons ark is where it’s at.  If they didn’t bring most the people to the game what did?

I guess I would rather play a game than watch some other dingbat play it.

Not really sure why people do that. Do people watch other people watch movies?

I will say this I didn't buy Ark because of streamers, in fact I never once watched anyone streaming anything about Ark until after I had bought the game, and needed pointers, or tips, or help figuring something out. That's how I do with every game. YouTubers and streamers don't influence my purchasing decisions whatsoever.

 

However on the other hand, to answer your question Joebl0w13, not only do people sit and watch someone else play a game, and listen to their commentary, they will also sit and watch someone else watching a movie, and listen to their commentary as well. I've noticed this is more popular in the younger millennial crowd, than the older millennial crowd, like me. My guess is mainly because us older millennials, were just starting to have access to the internet as we were growing up, and cellphones didn't all have cameras, and good web cams were pretty expensive back then, so YouTubers and the like, who post videos of themselves playing games, and watching movies and commenting on them, wasn't something we did, or had access to, but the younger millennials have.

This is why older generations, and us older millennials, don't use this as a tool to decide whether or not to buy, or watch something. 

 

So yes, some streamers are the reason the younger crowd is buying these games, but no they are not the only reason it's still alive either. I don't know when the game was in early access, but I haven't owned a gaming console in years either, until 2018, so while I was deciding which console I wanted, I was also looking at games, and like someone previously mentioned, I grew up with Jurassic Park, so I wanted to play, because I wanted to play with dinosaurs, and pretend I'm in my own Jurassic World.

 

Just because someone does things differently than the way you do them isn't a reason to argue about it, or dismiss all of their comment, because, everyone who commented about this topic of streaming, in their own way was about 50% right.

Streamers do help for certain crowds, but have no influence on other crowds.

It's just the way the world works. What we should focus on, is that we all care deeply about this game, in one way or another, and we should be helping each other out to make this the best game it can be, rather than bickering and dismissing each other.

It is there under ark modding contest it's a green link above the contest entries. It says click here to read official rules, how to vote is step number 1.

I'm not sure but I think my comment has been deleted by they took my comment as an advertisement of someone's channel? If so, sorry for that. I just wanted developers to see what happening with some people. Domes of extinction is still broken on both ps4 and pc, but most of people don't experiencing that is really hard to fix it probably, but please fix it. And also spawning of rex in scorched earth and tops of bikini. I wanna enjoy it before summer bash is end. Thanks. And thanks saltymonkey that you told me about wyvern egg I well understood! :)

Still waiting for a belt fed LMG and a grenade launcher attachment for assault rifles. On a serious note I do want to think of coding oversights. I haven't been to the beta branch so I have these questions

Longneck:
Tranq darts, shock darts, and pheromone darts still have a coded dmg value, and their torp dmg is based off the quality of the rifle's dmg value. Can someone confirm whether or not tranqs and shocks will now actually do *less* damage, due to having a multiplier in effect? (Armor doesn't reduce incoming torp unless it's riot armor, as a result, I'm worried the engine's logic will look like
Torp value = dmg quality * armor rating * penetration value. If armor rating is zero, remove it from the equation.)
If this theoretical bug exists, longnecks are about to be messed up for taming. If the opposite is true and they do more torp value due to penetration being > 1, they'll do more torp dmg than intended against armored tames and players.

fab sniper:
what classifies as light armor? is it non-platform/tek saddles and hide/ghilie/desert/hazard? or do you mean light armor penetration as in small penetration value? E.g lighter penetration than a longneck?

General:
What does this penetration value due to wild dino bullet resistance? (dino's have a flat 30% ballistic resistance, another reason in a long list of reasons players prefer crossbows when dealing with dinos on foot or taming)

We work with external partners to bring ARK to PS4.  So it's making sure all teams are ready and on the same page/ready to launch.

Just PS4? Xbox is here too... as an Xbox player it’s been extremely frustrating and difficult to see everyone else get events and maps first... can Valguero please be the exception???

So since it has to be linked to our steam account if we play on PS4 or Xbox we can't vote.

Actually that's not true... I was going by that because you said step #1 is how to vote but when I click that link #1is this 1. How to Enter.  To enter, all eligible Submissions must be submitted online at https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/modding/enter-contest/, with a link to the contestant’s Steam Workshop in full compliance with these Official Rules, as specified, before the end of the Contest Period (“Submissions”).  Submissions that are incomplete or do not adhere to these Official Rules or specifications will be disqualified at the sole discretion of Studio Wildcard

 

So what are you talking about? This link https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/contests/1-ark-mod-contest-2019-maps/rules/ doesn't have anything there about voting especially not as #1

You asked a question you got an answer no need to be at all rude.

Is there anyone here who really know where we go to vote? And how we vote?

 

Because as of right now I've missed two of the phases were supposed to be able to vote in.

Which means 2 less entries to win for voting, so I'm already at a huge disadvantage over others who know where to go and how to vote during each phase of thisn

I wasn't trying to be rude... However the information you gave is inaccurate.

Also I'm frustrated that I have missed two of the phases of voting, which give us multiple entries to win. So I'm two vote entries behind many other people who know where and how to vote already.

 

And I don't understand why none of the moderators have chimed in to tell us where we are supposed to be going to vote.

 

They want us to vote, but then won't tell us where, or how, it makes 0 sense to me.

The information I gave is what they WC stated on their page nothing I did. I just gave you their information which was requested. End of.

I'm sorry that you misunderstood what I was asking, when I copied all of the information WC has already posted, none of which was correct. That is why I posted the information they have already given, stating it doesn't work, and asking how to actually do it. 

You unfortunately, didn't provide any info as to where to actually vote, and how to do it. You only provided more of WC's misinformation. Which if you had checked the link to the official rules, like you suggested I do, you also would have seen that the information WC had given, that you were about to pass on to me, was incorrect, and that #1 didn't have anything to do with voting. At which point, I would guess you wouldn't have posted incorrect information that WC had provided.

I'm not blaming you for the misinformation, I blame WC. I do however wish, you had checked the link yourself first, to make sure that what WC said was there, was actually there.

Thank you for trying to help. My apologies for coming off as rude.

What is wrong with you devs? The forest kaiju should not be able to grab through mek shields either, there is no counter if the thing is in their turret rang and in their shield, you literally cant do anything while it grabs all your gigas racers ect. Learn what balance is and fix it.

Well I'm glad that you guys fix some of the stuff on Xbox One we're still getting kicked out of the private servers that we rent be like one minute if freezes then all the sudden it black screens and we're back to the console for Xbox it's been like this ever since are came out in 2015 it's also the lag part you're sitting there for 2 and 3 minutes while being attacked and then you die because the dinos are killing you but your Frozen can't do anything I know it sounds like the same old thing  but something's got to be done I love playing the game I've had it ever since it came out is there anyway that you guys can find out why it keeps freezing and why you get kicked? And just let you know that there's a lot of us older folks between our late thirties and forties and fifties that love this game and play it. And having a computer programming degree I see some of the things that are happening in the codes are just not there.
