  1. It’s been a year! We know -- we already wrapped up (pardon the pun) with our end of year post and event but we’ve opted to throw one more Holiday treat in for our awesome community: A New Year’s Eve mini-event. At midnight EST on Dec 31st and midday EST Jan 1st, our Official Networks will be bombarded with raining gifts in a hail of fireworks to mark the end of 2020. These gifts will contain a collection of your favourite skins from past events that are currently unavailable and a chibi bonanza! And by bonanza, we mean, the drop rate of Rare, Very Rare and Legendary chibis will be dialled t

  2. Happy Holidays from Studio Wildcard As 2020 winds up--a year that has been eventful and challenging for all of us--we wanted to take pause and extend our heartfelt gratitude to the ARK community for the tremendous support you've shown us throughout the years. ARK is a community-driven game and you continue to put your dedication and passion on display daily. We pour our hearts and souls into everything we create. We embrace that passion so that we can continue creating epic entertainment for our players. Irrespective of who you are or where you’re located—if you’re a part of our evo

  5. Dunno about your thoughts on how well it swims, that's gonna be a 'let's see' for me, but as for water, there's plenty of water we can see at the bottom of the trench, which by my guess, is pretty big. Not to mention, they're giving us the canoe, and specifically said when they revealed it that 'they wouldn't give us the canoe if we weren't going to be able to use it' (or something like that), which heavily implies the existence of a water biome. Something doesn't need a reason to evolve. 'Evolution' is simply the process of natural selection, and that happens all on its own, ahem, nat

  6. I have put a lot of hours into Ark over 5 years - bought all the DLC. I think it is an inspired, vibrant and ambitious game. In my opinion, it can be a great game - but I will also declare that I think it is also an unbalanced, buggy mess with inconsistent customer support. I would imagine that much of the imbalance is a product of its great ambition. My intuitions tell me that the current way that Ark is played is much different from how the developers intended, where the exploits and imbalance have directed the way the game is played most of the time. It has bugs that I think are worthy

  7. As the title states, this update has got to be the biggest slap in the face ever to us all, no-one cares about your Ark 2 work, you will just be remembered for the mess you made of this game. Your constant messed up updates, accounts lost or corrupted. Events that players could not get into, servers constantly down. And the final slap in the face a 15gig update that basically gave us just coloured dinos and a chance at some loot, all packaged up as a Winter Wonderland without any snow. Logging on to this pathetic event was like taking a child to see a department store santa and his beard

  8. I'll be honest, I prefer the Maewing's design to that of the Noglin. It's in line with why the Velonasaur is one of my favorite sci-fi creatures : as imaginary as it is, there's a prehistoric feel to it. I'm afraid that for PvE players (and even more SP players, yes we exist, please remember us in your further endeavors ?) will not have as much use of it. We are a peaceful people ! Unless Gen2 creatures start having offspring in the wild (which... don't get me wrong, I'd be game for that), we don't have enemies. Unless you're not telling us the whole story just yet, of course Happy

  10. Seriously? It's been out 4 years, and started development 6 years ago and there are many aspects that still play like it's in beta. Does this game not receive updates? There are countless bugs, how is this acceptable? Every time a bug happens, you guys in the community just say "That's Ark!" or "Ark being Ark!", like what is that? You guys attempting to be funny? You guys trying to justify your games problems? You guys are enabling the developers the ignore the bugs. Do you guys not care about the health of this game? Or for Ark 2? Even if they have released patches with various bug fixes, it'

  11. Hey Kronos. Felt froggy so I did some testing for ya. Singleplayer, set up exactly like Official Servers (150 max level, no weird stat scalings or dino mods that affect Megalodons). I spawned in 8 level 135 perfect tame Megalodons: All 8 tamed out to level 202 of course! I spawned in saddles until I had 8 close to 55 armor.. I did this to emulate taking some garden-variety wild tames, not all 150 perfect or bred ones, with less-than-official-capped saddles to see, as you put it, if it can handle unfriendly creatures in the deep. It's harder to emulate a bred squid on singleplayer

  12. I ended up on an Official server. 892 I think it is. It took me about 2 days to find a spot to drop a campfire after about 5 deaths from starving or freezing to death. The other players on the server are friendly and do chat a lot. I'm not a people person myself so I mainly stay to myself, but it is still nice to read the chat to pass time. During the New Years event, I was chilling at the location... Literally because it was in the snowy area and it was cold. Built a small hut to wait in. My pteradon was waiting outside. A frigging sabertooth tiger or something like that attacked the pte

  13. Today did not go as planned. I logged in and un-podded the 4 baby rexes. I waited a few minutes and gave them their first imprint. Noticed I was low on meat so I did a meat run to fill the fridge and to keep the trough going for awhile. Tried to contact server buddy that was raising therizinos to see if my Female was finished. No answer. Bummed because this is really what I wanted to do today... start my Theri line. Ran around for a bit re-organizing shelves, made a vault for saddles because the two cabinet system I had was running low on space. Then decided to do the lava c

  17. (Official, Valguero) Bred tek rexes and dimorphodons. Imprinted Phobos, currently waiting for dimorph eggs to hatch and for Killer Sausage to be ready for his imprint. Finally got a present! No great loot in it (stone gateframe? SERIOUSLY?), but hey! At least I got something! Made a new rifle, whole 215%! My old, 209 one will go to Crystal Isles along with some darts, kibble, and narcotics because I want to try and get a griffin. (Official, Crystal Isles) Tranq darts: all used. Crossbow that I switched to after running out of darts: broken. Griffin: not tamed. I'm: strongly displeased.

  19. Depends. If you're thinking about playing single player, or on a private server with friends, I would say yes. It's a great game, despite the tons of bugs. I would stay out of the official network, it's a awful experience full of performance issues that will turn a otherwise fun and immersive experience, into a mix of annoyances and frustrations. Might as well wait for Ark 2 next year.

  22. Well I will say i had to quit arks multiplayer awhile back. I kept giving it an honest run and did pretty well at times, but the game just got too demanding for anybody that had a job and/or family. But to make the game single player focused would really hurt the experience for me personally.

  24. The thing I'm missing here, is .. this doesn't even look like up to personal interpretation at all? The devs told us the Story of Ark via lore bits that are spread across a few maps. The story itself tells of a chronological tale that occurs on those same maps, with several characters that travel between them. This is what Story Mode is. As far as the way the devs have chosen to tell us this Story, the other maps aren't part of it. There is no lore attached to them, they don't exist as far as that Story goes. This whole thread I created was about what is the correct order and m

  26. This is just dumb rubbish people spout not even worth listening to. Ark 2 will be exclusive to Xbox and PC at launch, and will likely remain like that until official release assuming they do early access. It is likely not to come to PS for at least a year, so looking at 2023. You think they'd switch all the official servers off and leave out the PS players for so long. I mean i've not heard such dumb rubbish. I'm done going over this with nothing but foolish tinfoil hattery.

Mostly junk and things I already have but I also got 3 pieces of journeyman riot gear, a few pieces of flak of varying levles, a MC longneck rifle, another journeyman sniper rifle, a journeyman assault rifle... and some chibis. I got both a rex chibi and a party rex chibi. I have no idea what the difference is. I also got a chibi for a tuso and a reaper, which sounds pretty cool but... I need to tell you all something... I have no freek'n idea what a chibi is . I had to look it up and here is what google says is the meaning of Chibis... "is a Ja

  28. Was there ever a real possibility that ark would continue on for 10 more years? 5 more years ? It's a natural cycle that successful games get sequels. Inevitably one day all that hard breeding or building work was going to evaporate anyway, so with that said all we can really debate is the timing of the sequel. A 2022 sequel to a 2015 (or even 2017) game is by no means a rush job and we still have at minimum an entire year to say goodbye. I don't know about anyone else but I think gen2 looks absolutely fantastic thus far so hopefully the swan song for a1 will be really strong th

If you are so pissed off with wildcard then stop playing the dang game and let those of us that love it in spite of the issues enjoy it without all the bickering. I for one thank you very much wildcard and am excited for this. I just hope you are able to find a way to make it work on unofficial as I run my own server because I can't deal with the poison players like most of the people commenting on this announcement.

  31. (Official, Valguero) Rebuilt the water pen entirely. Bigger! Better! Square-er! Finally got real good loot from a present: a nice, 200-something (not the kind of something that can be found in normal drops, but 30 or 40, I don't remember, but somewhere around those numbers) crossbow BP and a 101 gasbags saddle, which I immediately put on Balloon - he's my favorite gasbags and deserves it. Decided to go to The Abyss. First a disconnect happened when I was near a pack of sharks. They broke one of my SCUBA tanks (and I only took two this time, so, big loss). Then I reconnected (somehow

  33. Oh well, I didn't know I'd come back here so soon, but I've had a little adventure and I'm in the mood to spread the news. As pretty much always I've been playing Valguero on the chaos-server. Besides having a line of Thylas going, I also have a smaller line of Sarcos and a lease of a Basilo and a Baryonyx from a friendly player. So I decided I need some black pearls. Hadn't seen any. White pearls I can farm in masses pretty much everywhere, but black pearls... none. So I looked up a youtube video and got a location. I sorted through my possessions and picked a couple of useful things. Then I

  34. Hey all, it's been a while since I've posted to this thread. I'm playing on the chaos-Server almost exclusively. Some nice people donated a breeding-pair of Thylas to me and I've quite the population running. Taking them out is fun. They're no match for the wyvern trench, but that's to be expected. Mostly, because they take to swimming in Lava for some KI-specific reasons. Also because they're having a hard time to actually hit the wyverns. but other than that, they're doing great. And taking them to the wyvern trench was really only a desperate attempt at getting some gear back I had los

Instead today I'll first feed the argent and parasaur on my (Official, Extinction) side-base, and then try to hunt some presents on (Official, Crystal Isles) and maybe use that kibble (as I realized later, not even the right kind) that I transferred there for my griffin-taming attempts to get a ptera or two to try and get a griffin after all, the proper way, trap and all. Or maybe tame a nicely colored argent to send to Valguero once it's possible again. Or a ne

  36. XB CI Server Got on early in the morning, started breeding. Got a good female megatherium to complete my line to pop finally. Stats combined until I find a new one to tame lol. Popped a few snow owls and a couple wyvern eggs to get more bloods for the queen. Also threw out all my females to amass kibble eggs. Imprinted them all and did a few metal runs between. Popped over to my eldrich beds and grabbed more black pearls, shards and crystals, decided that I'm sick of not having a mantis - went back to base to prepare to head to the desert and get one. Podded up my spare wyvern

And yes I added an extra S for screaming. I also am hoping Astrocetus will be on this map as it's kinda awkward to release another new space creature with no friends while floating. About the Maewing It will probably be somewhere in between rideable and shoulder pet as imagine a baby Tyrannosaurus Rex trying to nurse from a tiny platypus. PERRY THE MAEWING?!?

  38. I have not posted in a few days so I will try to just hit the high points... Gave up on finding the perfect baryonyx. Found a 75 male and tamed it up to a 112. Took it through the chitin cave for some levles and podded it the past two days for extra passive levels. Now it is 151 and, I think, ready for upper south cave. Might give it go later today. The two baby rexes, argy, and thyla all finished maturing. The megatheriums are still going. 95% last I looked. Wow, they take forever. I was hoping to use them today for swamp cave but I don't think I will have time now. I w

My new public owl trap has gotten lots of traffic, I tamed a nice 270 event argy and a 270 owl in it between others using it. Got a nice breeding pair of owls from one guy who's been using it:) Excited for those. Friend and I loaded up one of my diplos with speed, for fun went for a run around most of the map. Holy smokes. If you haven't- level an imprinted diplo in all speed.. hilarious. On our way back we got jumped by a high lev

But taking advantage of the double rates and have started snow owls, mantis and aberrant megalosaurus' maturing to juvenile before ending my time for the day. Snow owls have become a priority due to the need of more pellets. I am currently working on my fourth and final gacha clone. Element dust production facility when completed will comprise of 2 mate boosted pairs with a total of 8 owls on a 'socially distanced' platforms.

  41. That's the best way to do it, start from scratch on a better engine. Grapeshot games make Atlas not Wildcard. Atlas have their own team dedicated to that game that aren't involved in Ark, so this point it moot. It is clearly obvious that after 5 years there are some bugs and performance issues that cannot be fixed after all this time. The sooner you get your head around this and accept it the less stressed you'll be about issues that can't be fixed. Now if something can't be fixed then why waste time trying to fix it instead of making sure the future products don't end up

I bought a high stat mating pair at great expense a few months back as I had started building a ocean pen and was plagued by jelly fish. But I ended up losing the high stat female to magelodons just after they were updated. During the Halloween event I raised 5 Basilo babies to adulthood but I have rarely entered the ocean since losing the original female. But I digress, back to the trade. It turns out that my demands of 6k polymer were too much, which is

Tried to go on an alpha dino hunt, but found no alpha dinos. But at least I got tons of hide out of it. Imprinted dimorphs and named them, one is now Tiny and the other is Shriek. And now waiting for the game to update. ... After the update: tried to go after a present, but there's a new tribe being Grinches about it. So, no present. Did a metal run. Traded away one of my crystal wyverns. Also, got a scare because all my pod
