    What about all those people that work weekends and can never experience the Evo events, they finally get a once-in-a-liftetime special Evo event in the week to enjoy. You don't get a weekend event on one occasion and you claim it's unfair. Geez what an attitude.

    NO more Pod timers on PVE!!! Thank you! Holy crap! No more Cryopod timers on PVE!! What a game changer. Seriously. Cut down on lag, less dinos out ready to be pregoed, less dinos out for boss fights. No more worrying about feeding boss teams. Faster to unpod than to leave them out and move them around in place. What a freaken concept. FINALLY! You know how much time this will save? How much lag it will actually save across all servers? Just wow, finally! Something promising in a change! Good lord, took long enough. THANK YOU!

    That's the only logical conclusion you can come up with? I think the big global pandemic and national lockdowns forcing residents to stay in doors and the boosted rates being an incentive is a pretty big logical conclusion. Also the only logical conclusion why they are suddenly doing this now when they haven't ever before.

    Thank you, WIldcard. ARK has its many bugs but it doesn't change that I've had alot of fun in the 3,800 hours I've played of this game. I haven't had a chance to try out Genesis yet but it looks great. Once again, thank you for the incredible game and I hope we can get more positivity in the community. I can't wait to see the new TLC in summer. Insects? Brontos?

    They have reached their highest, 2nd highest, and 3rd highest player count on steam since Genesis dropped. How's the game dying? Looks pretty popular to me. Also your neutral mode wouldn't work. Tribes would just keep an alt level 1 character and make it the owner then store it away safely.

    It makes perfect sense. They gave you a warning. They didnt spent 8 hours carefully removing pillar by pillar but went with the bulldozer. After your rude reply they should just wipe the rest of it as well. You won't get the message anyway. Instead of bragging to enforcement that you still have over limit structures, how about demolishing them yourself? They spell out pretty clear what they "suggest" to you in that email. Try saying sorry maybe. You went way over the limit abusing some game mechanics. Take some responsibility. Good luck not attracting any trolls after that drama you are throwing here

    You can escape the build limit by building across multiple zones. Say you park your building in the four corners of where 4 zones meet, you can have a build limit of 60k pieces. devs along while back said it’s better to build wide than tall if you want to build big. I’m assuming they thought people would do that on their personal servers, not officials. Or at the time, they didn’t realize the impact it would have on official performance. I think the OP should have just kept his mouth shut. If I were a mod I would have put this guy back up for deletion. theres a base on 441 extinction in the city where if I even look in its direction my pc goes down to 1 frame a second. It takes 2 minutes just to look away after accidentally loading it into view. I have absolutely no sympathy for the OP. Especially after watching several minutes of the whining in the video. That was a huge waste of time and I didn’t even watch halfway since it was him just saying the same thing over and over again.

    I have been having a blast. It's great looking. It has new dinos. It has new core game mechanics, why is everyone so pissed about there being a store? It's cool! I found it irritating at first that there were no flyers and no way to traverse biome to biome, but I found the teleportation with hlna to be fairly interesting so I considered that to balance it out, and after getting used to it I like it.

    BREEDING TO ALL! I want all dinos to be breedable Megaloceros There are really no words for them letting the female model have holes in its head for this long. Come on! Brontos They really need to get those animations working! Not only do their legs look weird af, folding on themselves pretty much the whole time, but also the animation looks like they're taking mini steps all the time. Araneo How can we have creatues that climb walls and spiders are not one of them?! They don't need to be fast as far as I'm concerned but they really should be able to! I would also love to see them getting a zipline ability (spiderman, anyone? ) Ichthyosaurus Again - how can we have a creature that can jump out of the water and it's not the dolphin - the most iconic out-of-the-water-jumper of them all? Mesopithecus Make it cute, pleeeeeeeease? It's face is downright scary and it would be such a perfect candidate for a cute pet. Plesio Again a scary face I'd love to see it being able to strafe as suggested by @Erinn here. It has so many and so mobile fins it really feels like it should be able to strafe. Also - how can we have a platform saddle for a water dino and not be able to build air tight structures on it? Mosasaurus Same as above with the platform saddle. Ankylosaurus Autoharvest! Carbonemys Again - we have a creature that can retreat into its shell and it's not the turtle? Megalodon Sharks are said to be able to sniff out blood. Why not give them the same ability the wolves have of spotting enemies with less than half health? Maybe the megalodon is even better at it so enemies with less than 75% health? It's stuck in the water so it would have limited usability and wouldn't be too over powered. Also, I'd love a new model for it

    Introducing Crystal Isles We are very excited to announce that the one-of-a kind experience of the ISO: Crystal Isles map will be coming to PC, XBOX, and PlayStation this Summer! Crystal Isles is a stunning, other-worldly map filled with a vibrant display of teeming life scattered amidst its varied landscapes, awe inspiring floating islands and breathtaking biomes. Ever since Crystal Isles launched as a mod in 2016, its fantasy appeal has secured its place as one of the most popular maps within the ARK community and we can't wait to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC. The Crystal Isles DLC will also launch resplendent with a new real-world dinosaur to tame! What do you think the new dinosaur may be? In other news, we've been itching to share that we'll be performing a TLC Pass 3 in the Summer of 2020! This TLC pass will see some of our classic creatures get some new love via visual and functional upgrades. As we move closer to the release of the new Crystal Isles DLC and our much-awaited TLC Pass 3 we'll share more details and information with our players. New Sponsored Mods Dead Survival Tired of dinosaurs? Of course you aren’t, but sometimes we do want a little change in our diet. Dead Survival does just that, you can swap out the wildlife of the game with some … not… quite life? Zombies… I’m trying to say you can have zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. Hordes of them even. Check out the Dead Survival Mod Roleplay Additional Items RP communities have been a long time aspect of ARK, but sometimes our core structures can feel a bit insubstantial when you are trying to build a set for acting in. Roleplay Additional Items can add a lot more flourish to your locations from lighting structures and gear, to new taxidermy stations! Check out the Roleplay Additional Items Mod ArkVenture Park I’m pretty sure we have all dreamed of having our own backyard water slides and roller coasters. (Zen may have actually tried at one point, and failed… obviously) But now you can do just that in your base. Build that mine-cart roller-coaster that plows through your living room or a water-slide to the lava pools out back! Check out the ArkVenture Park Mod Castles, Keeps, and Forts: Remastered CKF development went dormant for a little while while the author went on a break. But it’s back, and getting a face-lift. The author is taking what they learned over the years and working on a remastered CKF (The original is still available). So far it’s looking great! Check out the Castles, Keeps, and Forts Mod On The Horizon Primitive+ Primitive+ remains a priority. We have engineering teams working on the complications from the Genesis update. We will keep you informed with any significant progress Genesis Part I Update We're continuing to work on Genesis bugs and balance and we plan to keep up with the rapid iterations. Thank you for your reports and feedback. EVO Event There will be no EVO event this upcoming weekend. Until next time!

    Genesis is a prime example that some people can't accept change. It's also called taking for granted. Getting a DLC with another open world map, new dinos, blah blah blah, people will tame the new dinos and bugger off back to their favourite maps. Genesis brings new stuff to the fold. Very different from the previous 3 DLCs. A change was needed most certainly. But changes will please some and not others. But, if you wanted a DLC that is the same as all the others, then you've still got all the others. Those that wanted a big change from the same old DLCs now get something new. This whole "I want flyers wah wah" gets boring fast. It got boring fast with Aberration and now it's here again. If you can't survive without flyers then you are not a true survivor.

    Hardly. Though not perfect, ARK was their first development project and years later is more popular than ever. They deserve the credit for that. Your playing their game isn't charity on your part. You playing their game so long despite frustrations only proves they've created something great. Considering the expansiveness of the game and the huge feat involved in developing and supporting it, they are doomed to fall short. Can't help noticing that you've also never contributed positively to this forum in the past. One single post in all these years of playing this awesome game and all you can do is whine and cry?

    Completely disagree. I've only been in the bog so far except for a quick spawn and peek around the other biomes and I absolutely love it EXCEPT for the insect swarms, those are broken as hell. True, it is definitely not an "easy" zone but the aesthetic of the bog is beautiful. It might be the best looking swamp I've ever seen in a game. Briefly went down into the ocean and wow once again it is beautiful. So much more detailed than the ocean in any other map. Cant wait to explore it more. It's day 2, everything is brand new and therefore harder. Give the map some time before you just throw your hands up and declare it a fail. Jesus people are so quick to quit something when it's not easy as pie.

    Eggcellent Adventure 5 Beginning Tuesday April 7th until April 21st, survivors will be able to experience our annual Eggcellent Adventure event on PC, Xbox, and PS4! While much of the world is at home, we wanted to give you some new adventures to hunt down. During Eggcellent Adventure 5, survivors will be able to collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK from wild Bunny Dodo's. These Bunny Eggs can be painted or used in special Cooking Pot recipes to craft new holiday-themed item skins such as the Spear and C4 skin, as well as 10 returning skins. Similar to past Eggcellent Adventure events, Bunny Oviraptor's will drop festive Dino Candy. Collect the candy and feed it to your tames for a special festive effect! To top it all off, wild creatures roaming the ARKs will also find themselves sporting some eggcellent colors! For those that are looking to expand their chibi collection, you're in luck! You'll be able to collect the past chibi's we've introduced with the addition of 6 new chibi pets by placing and cracking event-themed eggs from wild bunny dodos.

    Not sure you can blame Wildcard for the download from Steam/Microsoft/Sony taking ages. So many other things you can blame them for (and you do seem to make a hobby out of it), but download speeds from a third party is not one of them.

    Couldn't care less. Those bases are horrible and ruining huge areas of official maps for a lots of players. Totally selfish. Play single player, you can still make videos for whoever might find this interesting, but you won't be ruining the gameplay for others.

    I don't understand your confusion. Should GMs inform you about your base being horrible at least after removing part of it if not before? Yes. Is there some issues with limit counter? Yes. Evidently. Does this mean you should keep trashing the server getting 1 frame per hour just because game shows you can shove yet another pillar there? Definitely not. Use some common sense. You are dropping frames and lagging like crap in your own base which is 90% empty. Just wasted space that serves no other purpose other than crashing the server. I wish they did this kind of cleanups more often.

    I can see this happening. He even built his base out of stone - a known contributor for its mass rendering issues - when compared to metal. Be built cheaply and took up massive amounts of space and started to destabilize the integrity of a server that probably had 30% overall stability in the first place, because everyone here knows how terrible they are. If your server lags and rubberbands with 7/70 personnel, I don't understand the logic of attempting to destroy that already-limited functionality.

    Besides the suggestions thus far, most of which I agree with the one I'd like to see get some TLC and I've read MANY threads on this as well are... Humans! Yes, I want to see more variety, not just the sizes but more different faces, hair, etc. Also a bit more variety in the armor models. Besides the body shape everyone has the same face. Outside of that more love for the shoulder pets. I'd love to be able to whistle them on and off my shoulders, specifically the flyers when in flight. That and fix the hitboxes for the smaller flyers, they're terrible, you can have 20 arrows sticking out of it and none registered on the server. LOL
  39. 5 points
    The only thing I hope to see is a fix for Tuso hitbox. Mantas and other small dinos always get stuck in their head and there is no way to attack them or break free if you get swarmed. Either fix the head, or make the tentacle attack AOE around the head. Similar to how the giga bite can kill things behind it. Also make Tuso Eggs drop outside of the body.

    Please Stop Crying About Bog Every single day there is nothing but complaints in chat and on forums. Please stop moaning and groaning about your daily struggles in the Bog zone. I understand the swarms are annoying, but you chose to live in a zone that is absolutely littered with hostile dinos. Kapros do what kapros do: catch you off guard and maul you to death. Barys do what Barys do: stun-lock the piss out of you and maul u to death. These do not need nerfs; they have been like this for the longest time, and the game shouldn't revolve around you. Carry a sword and run around with flak = no issues with kapro. Stay out of water = no issues with Bary. Furthermore, just because WC labels Bog as "easy" zone, doesn't mean it's an easy zone. It's interesting to see that casual players don't seem to be able to distinguish easy from hard, and think just because it's labeled "easy," it must be where they live. MOVE OUT OF THE BOG IF YOU WANT TO LIVE PEACEFULLY. It's like living in the middle of the swamp on The Island, DILO do you honestly expect to happen? One of the best biomes for metal, crystal, and fungal wood is Bog, you think it comes free? Last point of mention: You don't need to live in JUST one zone. The HLNA teleport ability allows everyone the ability to jump around biomes. You don't need to live in the Bog just to tame spiders or mine metal, you can live in an easier zone like Snow and teleport there with an anky/theri/etc, and bring it back home. TLDR: Please for the love of God stop complaining about Bog.

    The map itself is too restrictive compared to other maps. Not being able to ride a dino between the biomes like previous maps is a fail. Trying to use HLN-A can be a nightmare as it tends to just zip away most of the time you attempt to interact wih it. Not being able to use flying mounts on an open map is a fail unless it is a bug or locked behind progression. It just doesn't make sense other then function as a brake on the rate at which people can obtain resources. The only thing working on the tek suit is the helmet's vision modes and air, but nothing else? A big, fat, fail. Imposing restrictions rather then building the map to take already existing methods into account is always going to be a fail, regardless of game. This has already been proven plenty of times in the past, just google it, no need to repost it all here. You'd need a library for that much information, not a thread in a forum. I started a new character in the bog biome and by the time the initial white screen went away and i could see the enviorment my character was pretty much dead, at around 10% health from deadly gas and the infernal insect swarms that are literally everywhere you go. They need to be toned down. You kill one swarm and 3 will take its place in seconds. It also rains 99% of the time and the fog's so thick you can barely see a thing. A real bog doesn't have near-constant rain. All the effects are causing a lot of lag on a standard PS4 without a solid state drive. Of course i could install a solid state drive but if the game won't work smoothly on the hardware that the console came with then it just simply wasn't designed right and needs to be tweaked, end of story. While mounted the game pauses between 2 - 5 seconds every 50 or so feet traveled. Hopefully this will get optimized over time. So far i have checked out the bog, snow, and ocean biomes and the only place i would even think of building is on the back of a Megachelon and i doubt i'll find much of anything in the volcanic or lunar biomes where i would want to build. Base building is a big part of this game after all yet Genesis clearly wasn't designed with that in mind but instead made to fit only a portion of the playerbase of the game, mostly people who prefer to play PvP but i'm tired of constantly running into people who can't PvP without using glitches, and then calling you trash, in pretty much any game, not just ARK, so i don't play PvP anymore unless it's with friends who i know will play legit. For PvE this map is lacking, a lot. Sure, there are missions to do but i haven't tried any of them yet so can't comment on them. What i have read from other peoples comments on them i don't even know if i want to.

    I don't play officials no, so I never comment on server performance, however, I am stating that these higher rates are due to the global pandemic and lockdowns currently happening around the world. I don't need to play official servers to know that. They also had other higher rates recently for smashing their CCU on Steam to more than 150k as a thank you to players. Now, your topic title asked "Can someone explain why WC keeps having insane boosted events?" which my explanation gives you the answer you asked for. Also, I see every single week people begging for 2x this, 3x that... every single week. Every single regular EVO I see people asking for breeding event this, breeding event that. Now they are players that play on official servers, yet every single week they are there asking for higher rates.

    Why do we STILL have parking lots? As the title says really, I am a returning player from a year or so ago now when cryopods first came out population of dinos on servers dropped which is ace but having returned i have seen the server i am on full of parking lots again ... huge pointless bases with tons of the same type of dino mainly wyverns so far - so i ask the wider community why? seriously why the clans have to feed these etc so why not just pod them all and have a smaller footprint if its only going to be a parking base, we can name the cryopods etc so it wouldnt be hard to see / organise them either. I know its a PvE only problem since in PvP we can just 'kill' the opponents dinos but im a casual PvEr

    Genesis Update We'd like to give a big thanks to the community for all the support you've shown during the Genesis launch! We've seen some amazing community content and enjoy hearing your experiences in the simulation. We have a busy summer coming up! Last week we announced the addition of a new map, Crystal Isles, and a new TLC patch coming this summer. Click here to read about the plans for Summer 2020. In the meantime, we have a number of tweaks we'll be deploying to Genesis in the form of bug fixes and quality of life enhancements over the coming months. We are planning for a patch Wednesday to address some of the more immediate issues following the Genesis launch. Enforcement Update The Enforcement Team has been monitoring the overall health of the Official Network and have new updates to share with the community. Recently there has been an influx of people reporting that dinos are being left in mission areas, including blocking the hoop in basketball missions. Going forward, we will be removing any dinos if they are reported to be blocking mission areas or mission objectives EVO Event Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 13th of Mar at 1 PM EST until Monday the 16th of Mar at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rates 2x Taming Rates 2x EXP Rates Until next time!

    All the other dlc maps have kept the core intact though. This dlc has changed the game at the core mechanics, that's the difference. Breaking the map into sections, adding teleporting, and adding an in game store to buy crafting materials has really changed the way the game was originally designed. There is much less survival, exploration, and risk in this dlc. Before if you wanted to travel to the other side of the map you better be ready. You had to get geared up, you had to prepare to die which meant sleeping bags or beds along the way, you better be able to get over that mountain or across that river without being killed, plus keeping your weapons and tools in good shape, having health drinks in your pocket, and most importantly knowing how to get back home. Now you just fast travel around, no biggie. oh one other big deal, taming animals far from home? You had to be prepared for that, knowing how to get them home safely, now you can drop in, tame something and teleport it to safety without any risk.

    I read Astrophysics for People In A Hurry. Doesn't mean I'm much cope at Astrophysics though. If Wildcard were on top of things from the start..... I like to think of Ark like a large cruise ship, filled to the brink with amazing content that you'll just not see on any other ship. However the ship is full of holes and is letting in water. The owner is running backwards and forwards, slapping cheap cladding over the holes, but new ones appear at a rate that they just can't keep up with. It'll never sink though. All the customers who love the content are holding it up, regardless of whether their heads are under the water line.
