Community Crunch 384: Dreadnoughtus Concept Art!

You know......I've had A.S.E. for about 8 years now; stopped playing official multiplayer after the first 2; and yet I've still barely experienced maybe 10-20% of the game's full content. Even with using cheats on single player to make the game easier, faster, and fix game breaking bugs; there's still sooooo much to do, explore, experience, and enjoy. I can play A.S.E. now on highest graphics to, which really is pretty good enough in the video game world as far as I'm concerned. (Wasn't able to on the computer that I first began playing it on.) A.S.A. on the other hand, will probably melt my computer at highest graphics; meaning I'll probably have to play it on medium or minimal settings; which would probably be close to the same as A.S.E. on medium or high settings. While the game experience improvements for A.S.A. mentioned are pretty cool, really they just rub me the wrong way; considering that they're all things that the Ark community has been asking them to do for A.S.E. since the very beginning, and which they consistently refused to do for absolutely no reason beyond simply not wanting to take the time to do them. Even so, most of these things can be added and fixed for A.S.E. simply by adding mods made by people who actually cared about the game and wanted to take the time and effort to make it better.

Hmmmmmmmmm..........................

Yeah, I've made my final decision. Really, I don't need A.S.A. or Ark 2. I mean, I've got like 80% more of A.S.E. to experience, Atlas to play which I've barely even done any sailing on, over 300 other video games on my Steam account to play, am considering getting Conan Exiles soon which is just a gigantic hoard of content. I mean; if A.S.A. ever goes on sale for like, $5, then I guess I'll pick it up just to have it. Same for Ark 2; if it ever does get made and released and goes on sale for like $5 then I guess I'll pick it up just to have it. But really, I have no entertainment needs to buy this game for since I already have A.S.E. and Atlas; and PixArk to I guess if you count that one. Even more importantly, I have absolutely no desire to give my money to such a blatantly ridiculous company.

I've been waiting for them to do something which would give me the desire to give them my money as I would like to invest in someone who's creating a game like Ark. Ark Survival Evolved and Bioshock compete at the top of my all time favorite video games list. But.....all they've done since the beginning of this year is give me reason after reason to not feel like giving them my money. 

Sooooooo.............. Hey WildCard?! Let me know when A.S.A. goes on sale for, like, $5 yeah? I mean, free would be even better, but I'd at least be willing to give you some pocket change to put the game on my Steam Library Wall.

Until then, if I REALLY want to experience A.S.A. that badly, then I'll just watch Syntac play it on YouTube. That'll be good enough while I spend the NEXT 8 years experiencing the 80% of A.S.E. that I haven't gotten around to yet. By then, A.S.A. official servers will be permanently closed and you'll be releasing the re-remaster of A.S.E. which you'll call A.S.A.E. (Ark Survival Ascended Evolved). It'll be a fully immersive experience which we'll need Sci-Fi VR equipment for in order to play. I dunno if we'll need to use a full-on body suit with wireless interaction as the controller, or some kind of brain implant to go into the game subconsciously while our bodies lay in a special bed, or if we'll need a full-on Star Trek Hollo-Deck. All I know is that the hardware needed to play it will cost as much as a small car and while that might be possible for some, I'll be picking up the old retro gaming style A.S.A. for $5 instead and spending my time finally getting acquainted with it while I ignore the slew of terrible marketing strategy and community outrage that will undoubtedly accompany your release of A.S.A.E.

Los señores de Wildcard sin duda se estan riendo de toda la comunidad de Ark Survival Evolved, otro dia sin información a menos de una semana de la supuesta salida del juego, los gestores de marketing de la compañia son unos payasos, retraso tras retraso y ahora no dicen mas que informacion que vale mierda por que a nadie le importa, se os acaba el tiempo

...it's possible, considering that (if I haven't misunderstood) they already have agreements for the exclusivity of ARK2 on XBox.. (I repeat: if I haven't misunderstood)

I remember another game that had a partnership with Xbox a while ago. For a long time all we got to see was some minor screenshots and old trailers while the hypebuilding was done mostly by content creators speculating. Xbox even made a special edition of the One halfd a year before launch...

Got to say that Cyberpunk 2077 had a poor lanch and needed almost 2,5 years of patching before it became the game that should have been launched... That extra money or whatever they got was not a guarantee for a good product on launch, neither was the line-up of Series X/S the first year showing MS having the knowledge to create good games with their partners.

So these new announcments are just new announcements to me and no reason to expect anything good or bad. I just wait and see, no hype here.

That would have been funny if they had stuck with the initial ASA/ARK2 package. Even without that package it will be another change of hearts since they never realy mentioned ARK2 being platform exclusive, altough there has been lots of speculation about it already.

Dont know if this will change after release of ASA, but at the moment i dont think anyone besides Cedric from WC is even checking this forum anymore. Can see some of them on Discord tho, there is quite a few things been pinned in General channel, nothing too important but more info than on any other sites/platforms. 

I'm not saying it's right on their part, given this is official forum for ARK, but if you want to get some info you might consider joining ARK`s discord.

Quite sure they are still here. And checking the forums all the time. They might be a bit busy at this moment.

As people beg for a trailer, SOMETHING, WC offers skins for Ark Wiki…….

 

0/10 communication.

 

If WC sold ice cream they would let it sit in the sun all day and then try to convince people they could just refreeze it when they got home. 

actually are wiki volunteers making skins and restyles, not WC at all.

people need to learn to have patience. Today you want to have everything right away. Doing things takes time, you have to wait. Luckily the wait for ASA won't be too long: They already shut down the Ark Survival Evolved servers. This implies that they will open the Asa servers soon. Be patient. The desire to play ASA may be understandable but some of the comments here are very " imaginative " .

"learn to be patient' ? I dont think any developer in the history of gaming has left the trailer until a day or 2 of release? Its unprecedented marketing madness. Its unfortunately very telling of the state of the product too.

Remember years ago all games were platform exclusive. I remember friendly rivalry with mates about which platforms had the best games. Then devs realized it was financially stupid because although some people bought multiple consoles and a pc, many didnt which meant millions in revenue down the drain. So exclusivity became a thing of the past for big titles. Funny how things go full circle and they think its even viable again.

Hello people,

I am new to this site an technology hates me. What I have to ask doesn't pertain to this article. I need help though. Iv talk to several different sites an they point me here now. I have a switch system an have played ark for almost 2 yrs now. For the past 2 was my game has been constantly crashing. Either while I try to save or even while in play. I play single player not on the server. It's so bad now I barely get to play 5 minutes an then I get a server error that something went wrong no communication with server an kicks out to menu. We have trouble shooter, deleted an reinstalled, corruption check an nothing. Please I need help. I love my game an have some very important character (dragon) that means a lot to mean. The wk I starred playing I started scorched earth during valentines I hated my first dragon egg an then found out my favorite YouTube Thick 44 with neebs gaming passed. I don't want to loose him. Please if anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated!

Normally the mods and some others here are pretty helpful with certain questions like yours bud so not sure if they've answered you privately? All i can say is ark is a little buggy on any device to say the least and i cant speak for pc but on console good Internet connection is essential and the only other thing is memory space. I had to delete some other games once a while back when i had similar issue. So yeah run an Internet speed check and check your system storage maybe

Not necessarily! If you look at Fromsoftwares Dark Souls: They have insane DLCs that are all fantastic, some better than the base game. Some of them got shadowdropped without any Trailer or hype-buildup behind them xD
And they are all masterpieces. It doesnt always mean that the product is bad, maybe they just didnt want the hype of the game to be over when it releases due to an early trailer (not saying that they couldnt have dropped it last week tho). I would just wait and see and not make such a fuss about it.

DLCs or even major updates get 'shadow dropped' not something they're trying to sprout as a completely new game. Disastrous marketing strategy

True, but thats not what I meant. I am saying that it doesnt always mean that the product is in a bad state. There is no way of knowing until it drops.
