Ark - The Great Emotional Rollercoaster

The emotional highs and lows in this game are nuts:

Recently returned after a couple of years out and are loving it. I had never left the Island so decided to move to Valguero.

HIGH: teleport in near Green obelisk: Wow this is simply beautiful. Die lots of times trying to get to the obelisk to retrieve my stuff as i'm in my underwear and its protected by 7 level 120+ raptors - great fun, having to build traps and walls to kill the little bastards with my primitive bow.

LOW: Download all my gear and most of the dino's and the game glitches and crashes and I lose everything. (there is a time delay between changes to the game save and updates to obelisk data). Luckily 2 dino's left (a 100% imprinted Argy and a 100% imprinted Direwolf). Start the long trek of starting from scratch.

HIGH: Find a beautiful base location (38 46) and get to work. Build an argy trap and get some great birds and start breeding. My standard baby is now level 227 and I havn't had any mutations yet!

ECSTATIC: Spot a level 168 Tek Rex. No kibble, no base yet but what the hell. Have a classic night time hunt and finally knock it out. My original imprinted argy is now 6445 health and 615 damage so feeding it prime from alpha's and large creatures.

DEVASTATED:  I had surrounded it with a ring of animals to protect it and 3 sabercats spawn virtually on top of it. The splash damage from the fight has knocked it down to 48% effectiveness - a whole 40 levels lost 

Pretty sad about that.

Happiness and sadness seem to go together in this game. What are your experiences?

This game can really affect someone emotionally. You could be having a blast taming, breading, building, etc. and then next thing you know you're getting pounded with elements of ARK or players online; and turn your mood upside down in the blink of an eye.
