    So, Invincible, you know I'm a fan of yours but I have to strongly disagree with that level of generosity in your thinking. The only reason they get away with so, so, SO many problem during rollouts is that this is a game with retail customers. If they had any customers that were businesses this would never fly, or even commercial productivity software for retail customers. The only reason that game companies get away with their (constantly) shoddy practices is that they are games. In most games it's not terrible, but in a game like this one, where players can lose thousands of hours of work (for a whole tribe) if they can't get into the game and keep things alive, it's nothing less than abusive. WC created a game in which their players have to do constant maintenance, and that means there should be a publicly acknowledged burden on WC to be more careful, do better testing, significantly reduce their error rate, especially their critical error rate. In most games you don't lose anything, you just can't log in, but when things go wrong in ARK the results are a catastrophic abuse of peoples' time, WC should be held to a higher standard of dependability and being patient with them is not the right response.

    I would normally agree, that such tactics are part of the game if this was actually done in a war environment. But as stated by the OP, this is on PvE. Infiltration strategies should be left to PvP, and phishing scams have no place on PvE.

    Eco is such a wonderful person. I enjoyed all the mods a lot. Making all servers I played on more alive and individual. I am always amazed which new ideas Eco has and puts into mods. I will never forget how Eco took a lot of time helping me setting up the Mods I wanted. Was super helpful and patient with me.

    I doubt there is any way to protect against it other than build walls around containers with no doors. However we don't know the extent of these admin exploits other than victim stories. So far we only know they are able to get into bases (it is unknown if they glitch/clip through walls or if they bypass locks on doors) There are many glitches the average player can use to get into a base, but to break into a locked container with or without a pin code, thats pretty FUBAR. Its game breaking to have players who know how to exploit into any container/fridge/base they want on official PVE. This has been going on for months now and still no fix in sight. If I wanted random people stealing my hard earned items/dinos I'd play official PVP. @Cedric

    Legacy 2 servers? Oh no you don't I have just heard sbout your idea for, yet again, ruining years of hard work, hard defences sleepless nights and endless battles all because you put out a shoddy game. What makes you think that even that will solve it? Years of trying you cock up again WC and now your gonna try make 'US" pay for it again? I think its disgusting that you can consider it we are the community you crap on i swear if you do this you'll destroy this game its community. I hope everyone has something to say on this subject because as of right now I dont even know if it's worth going out on a meat run because if your just gonna screw it up for everyone in a few months whats the f****** point??????

    Holy crap: stop with the constant updates! Cant you guys use a scheduled day and time for this stuff? Like: Every Friday at 2am EST, servers are down for scheduled updates/patches. Oh its new cheats/hacks you say? Never have I seen a game with so many "hacks" and "cheats" as Ark. Beta ended years ago; this is seriously ridiculous every day. If there are THAT many potential cheats in the game, its time to re-evaluate what the hell is going on with everything..

    A Turkey just killed ALL of my dino's in my absence This has to be the most moronic game feature ever. The devs clearly only care about well established players that can fight them. For the rest of us its just a bad joke. I was off taming nearby. I am guessing a seagull attacked a tame and once the area attack from a trike hit the turkey it aggroed and murdered everything. Thanks for nothing

    Greetings Survivors! It's that time again, I am Zen Rowe and today we’re going to be talking to Eco, the creator behind a plethora of decor mods! Eco, You likely need little introduction, but for the sake of anyone who has yet to experience your mods tell us a bit about yourself. Your mods are some of the most popular in the Workshop, Eco. Seeing you branch out into more functional additions like this has been a joy. Do you have a background or hobbies that have influenced and guided the design of your mods? I imagine your empire mods involve a lot of historical research. I'll take ten... uh... for my god-daughter. Yes... for my god-daughter. I know a lot of players love your creations in ARK, but it sounds like you lived a fascinatingly creative life as well! Now if anyone wanted to follow your modding endeavors or wants to see what other artistic creations you've made, where can they do that? What prompted you to cross the bridge from more physical forms of art to modding? I take it that those Brontos are who we have to thank for the "Eco Trees" mod? That was your first one, wasn't it? You have certainly come a long way since then. Between your empire and primordial mods, you've also begun to cater to a wide variety of aesthetic styles as well. Personally I'm proud of my stick figure achievements but what you have accomplished in terms of variety boggles my mind. Would you be able to give us a bird's-eye view of your design process for your empire mods? You certainly put a lot of care and attention into your mods. What would you say are the most challenging parts of the process? Well, that's one of the things that is great about modding. You have a functional sandbox to experiment with and learn other skills in. Now, the question I'm sure many have been waiting for... Do you have any super-secret content you are working on that you could leak for us today? That's going to be an interesting one. Babylonian architecture is something that I think a lot of people hear reference to in media but may not have actually seen. I think we'll all be looking forward to that release! Before we sign off, Do you have any advice for mod authors that want to try their hand at projects similar to your own? Thank you for that, and all of the wonderful mods you have created for the community! Until next time, Happy Modding!

    Yeah, sadly that's true. The only way to fix ARK imo would be to sell it to someone that actually knows what to do with this intrinsically broken game.

    "React" doesn't really mean positive only, so get ready. The stack sizes are a decent change, especially Org Poly and refining equipment. Some good TLC there to ease so materials come easier! But then... Modified Drag weight of creatures to prevent carry by Quetz and Crab: Galli Kapro Megalosaurus Procoptodon Megalosaurus I guess I understand. But the other 3? I dunno. Especially Gallimimus and Procoptodon. Two of the most niche tames, multi-seat fragile speeder and berry-getting superhopper. They are both good tames, not trying to say they don't have value but their value is limited. So who in the hell asked for this? Why is this the wheel that gets the grease? An artificial difficulty increase on otherwise easy-to-get tames targeting PvE unofficials with flyer-carry turned on? Neither Procoptodon or Gallimimus are a big part of PvP on official. Sure, they rule to have some FUN on, but past that, you aren't boss-fighting or raiding with a Roo or Galli regularly. Now I'm sure maybe ONE video exists of ONE guy with ONE Roo/Galli doing ONE raid or bossfight which, keep in mind, says nothing about their actual usefulness. On official PvE, you can't carry them as wild anyway but now you... what... have to... cryopod them to get them back to your base after you tame them? Which 90% or more people are doing anyway? So then on unofficial flyer-carry PvE, people who would tame either for funsies can't tow them back to their base to tame them up, but have to tame them on site. I just don't understand this. If you were going for an opposite QoL change, this nails it for lovers of these tames. @Cedric the other changes are understandable, and like I said, Megalosaurus I can understand. But a bit of reasoning for the other three would be nice. *I don't think a possible upcoming TLC is the reason, citing the recent TLC on the Procoptodon.*

    This is simply a band aid to the reality of what happened and is beyond disrespectful. People lost bases and dinos with 100s of hours poured in. It's like your saying who cares to the investment of everyone that sinks alot of time into your game. Keep it up and there will be 0 supporters of your broken 4 year old game.

    Smells like a troll post to me. Honestly, if people want to play unofficial, they go over to unofficial. I switched from official, to unofficial, to singleplayer, and there was nothing stopping me. There's no "inconvenience" with it, aside from having to start over, but that shouldn't be a problem if rates are higher. If you are having so much trouble with Bobs lagging up the servers, why don't you switch to unofficial?

    There is actually a setting for this that will be going out. It's already in code, it just not in the live version of the game yet. I'll try to make sure Ced includes mention of the settiing in the Crunch when it actually does go out.

    Manticore is a bugged boss 100% guarantee. Manticore usually only lands like 2 times, tries to land a lot more, but just doesnt. Sometimes it stays in the air for 10mins straight without even moving and doing nothing. We tried spacing them out alot, but that just does not work. Sad that players have to have bad experience and lose armies cause of a boss which needs a fix, but doesnt get fixed..

    Jesus the OP is annoying. MOST ARK PLAYERS ARE ON PvE. Stop talking about the game like it's purely PvP. When someone mentioned to you that stone is fine for them you said "obviously we're talking about multiplayer" but PvE has way more players than PvP and stone is the most commonly used building material on PvE servers. GO PLAY RUST if you want to talk about the PvP meta like it's the main part of the game.

    Wildcard does it again.... thought about logging in to get the new emotes... learned they are character bound not account bound.... didn't bother. why they do this is beyond me. Having the emotes shared over your mulitple characters adds no advantage to game play. Don't want to spend the time collecting 75 bones per character to unlock the emotes for them all. more wasted time is all I see. Good job wildcard.

    PVP community will continue to be bitter and toxic toward PVE'ers because PVE is widely regarded by the PVP community to be a "safe space". A wide spectrum of PVP players consider themselves above PVE players and are willfully ignorant of the reasons players prefer to play a different mode than them. It is widely known that a vast majority of PVP players exploit the best tames and glitches in order to compete against other tribes. The constant glitching and need to "one up" eachother on PVP forces WC to nerf useful tames and fun mechanics into the ground screwing over PVE players in the process. Not much will change for PVP. Everything will change for PVE.

    I remember way back when ARK came to the PS4. Back then I had to walk 9 miles to and 10 miles back, just to turn on my PS4. In 3 feet of snow! The only source of power was to ride a stationary bicycle, and we only had AOL dial up 56K internet. Of course, that didn't matter, as we were just excited to be playing a dinosaur game, as we huddled together in front of the TV, mostly for warmth, but also because we only had a 12" screen B & W television. Oh man, I mess those good old days! Dang Millennials ruin everything!
