      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

      TLC Update - Ragnarok 'Puzzle' Cave.   03/20/18

        In our most recent Ragnarok Update, the puzzle cave was revised so that it would no longer allow survivors to build within it. Due to this change, player structures found in this location were removed and some dinos became stuck. We will not be rolling back our servers at this time. We would like to keep rollbacks limited to major service-wide disruptions going forward due to complications caused by CrossARK and Tribes (part of being a multi-server persistent open-world survival game). Later today, we'll be rolling a server update which will allow survivors to build in this area for an additional week so that players can move their creatures via a transmitter or teleporter. After the 27th of March, this will no longer be possible so please use this time to remove your creatures swiftly. Console players, please use this time to move out any creatures or structures you have in this cave because once the update hits, you'll no longer be able to do so! Thank you for your patience and ongoing support, survivors!

    Im against them releasing more isolated clusters, transfers are a good major part of the game and it makes the game a million times better with them enabled. Any new servers should just be opened up to everyone from day one. It doesn't matter if a mega tribe comes on there and takes over with all their dinos, because if they wanted the server they could have it even if they had to start at lvl 1. There is no need of a wipe, new players will have people ahead of them even if it's a full wipe. The new player will be getting spat on by dilos while the old alpha tribe is meeting back up on their old spot and power leveling. By the time a new player finaly gets a ptera and explores the map there will be mega bases with Gigas anyway. Ark of on a good place we all got good stats and mutations, nice bps etc all a wipe will do is set us back a few months. And no one needs that. Back to hours of fishing and running swamp cave and grinding wood lol hours of taming and breeding and trading just to get back to where we are now. And then people will call for a wipe again

    Or anyone with a substantial time investment? You must be an actual child, the type that takes the ball home when others don't play the way he likes

    If it's anything like the corpse locator mods then what it does is let you craft a corpse locator item which when used will give you a trail that you can follow which leads straight to your corpse. That said, that's the mod version of it. Who knows how the official version will be implemented. In my opinion, having such an item to blaze a path for you to find your belongings kills some of the survival aspect of the game. They could have made bags more visible through allowing players to dye their satchels, made the satchels bigger, and even fix the often heard problem of satchels clipping into the terrain.

    Try these: Fortitude (10 points is good) Stims (Stimberries and stimulants) Housing Mounts If done right, the troodons will realize their defeat, and will end up jobless. These unemployed troodons will then cry on forums on how hard their lives are.

    The Ragnarok map is an awesome map. Stupidly there is just 3 Servers per Region. On the Ragnarok server with the number 34 we have the following situation: 1.) The WHOLE highlands biome (and i mean THE WHOLE, LITTERALY THE WHOLE!!!!) is blocked by a SINGLE tribe called "ARK DUDU" who got reported by a DOZEN other players and yet nothing happened 1b.) The WHOLE swamp is also blocked by ONE SINGLE TRIBE 2.) Almost ALL ice wyvern nests are blocked by another tribe i didnt checked the name of yet 3.) Griffins are awesome mounts, they are really fun to play with, BUT: People KILL griffins you are luring to a trap, because they dont match THEIR desired level People KILL griffins you ALREADY trapped, excusing it with "you are blocking new ones from spawning", even if we are actually in the process of knocking them out to tame them People entirely BLOCK specific griffin spawns exactly for the reason to troll the whole server There are some specific players who play smart on the community while actually TROLLING everyone, they traverse between ALL intacts griffin spawns (they ofc have at least 3 traps at each spawn!) then trap ALL griffins they can find, tame the 140+ ones, and offer the other ones to tame, if ppl do not answer fast enough, they kill those griffins and continue stealing every single new one that spawns there, those are ppl who already tamed HUNDRETS of griffins and parts of their tribe do NOTHING ELSE for the whole time they are online! 4.) Almost ALL buildable caves are BLOCKED off, i can understand that in PVP this is no problem, since you can just nuke your way into them if you fell like that, but on PVE the consequence is that a whole VERY NICE aspect of the content of that map is completely RUINED for hundrets of other players 5.) If you lose the connection from the server, and you have been in a fight or ANY time-critical situation, you are screwed and can call it a day, because logging back in takes from 20m (very lucky) to 45m (average) up to 3 HOURS, so you can just forget about everything you had on you, tames you knocked out etc. 6.) Ressource rich areas like for example that natural stone-pillars where you have tremendous amounts of metal ARE BLOCKED because people think "oh this looks like a nice place for an elevated base" completely ignoring the fact they destroy any convinient way to get important ressources 7.) Sheep spawns been awesome, could find sometimes 20 (!!!!) of them at once, sheep are a essential core component of taming carnivores these days, but on server 34, since some retareded braindead trolls pillared the whole region where they spawn it takes now 2 HOURS to find even 2 sheeps at once... 8.) The amount of toxic chat is INSANE, theres not even 10 minutes without 2 players fighting with eachother in the global chat about some stuff, this is leading to pillar-wars where also other people are dragged into it and results in a basic toxicity that just takes all fun out of the aspect of playing with other players (thats why ppl play officials, if they do not enjoy that aspect, they could play SP oder private servers!) to have social interaction and nice trading as well as helping each other... 9.) Tame limits will be reached at least next monday, if not, one player threatened the server to help it a bit by transfering about 5k dinos to that server via exploiting multiple characters via the uploading mechanics exploit (create char, make tribe, download dinos, when 500 is reached, upload that char, create new one, rinse repeat) and his tribe members will help too The launch of 3 servers per region for a map like ragnarok was one of the biggest fails in the history of this company (besides dynamic length bridges, tameable titanoboas and adding the titanosaur to the PVE mode). P.S. All of those problems got reported multiple times by multiple people! No one of them ever got an answer or any reaction! Adding 1 Single PVE server per region does NOT help! Add 15 Servers per region! That would help! Community is still shredding eachother because of Wildcards decisions!

    Now we are in the final stretch i was wondering if anyone knew about a building overhaul before release, i would be surprised if the game was to release with the current building mechanics, especially on the console version as we cant use mods, even as a builder since release im still finding things snap to wrong parts, or you have to demolish half a build because you forgot to place something, lower down, and doing so you lose out on resources and time collecting For me this is the one thing that really lets this game down and hope they will look at this again before release

    The leedsichthys and alpha leedsichthys are not spawning or are the rarest thing in the game. can a developer please lets us know what’s going on i assume there spawn rates have been turned down or off for some reason? i have been searching for the alpha leedsichthys for about a week jumping between 3 servers center and island killing everything in my path and i cant find them.

    Just wanted to post here to thank the devs for making Ragnarok an official map. It took my many long hours and a few mistakes but I finally have a breeding pair of 224 equus. Without the highlands spawns that would not have been possible. Ever since the equus were released I have wanted to breed them but no official map had enough spawns to make that a dream that a single person in a solo tribe could realize. Now that I have my pony pair I just need time off from work to start breeding. Just an FYI if anyone is looking to buy an equus, at some point I will have some to sell. Will be on pve servers of course. I really want to start a line of pink horses because everyone deserves to have a pinkie pie in their base to keep their tames happy. Should add a picture of the happy couple but already shut down computer. Maybe tonight before work.

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! Let's get started with some news. Pre-Orders and Limited Collector’s Edition! In case you missed our E3 news, ARK has it's official release date, August 8, 2017! Along with our official release comes the opportunity to pre-order and get yourself a limited collector's edition of ARK, which comes with a whole bunch of goodies shown in the picture above. Read more at the link below: ARK: Evolution Event Weekend! Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special extended Evolution Event for the release of Ragnarok! It's already live now and will remain active until Monday the 19th at 12PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 1.5x Harvesting Rate 1.5x Taming Rate 1.5x EXP Rate Reminder: this 1.5x bonus is on top of the 2x rates that are now standard on our official servers! Sponsored Mod Program Update! When we initiated the Sponsored Mod Program, we hoped to bring more free content to console and PC players alike. We understand how important modding is to the gaming community and the overall health of a game. The history of modding in game development goes back to the 1980's and the first development kit for modding, The Boulder Dash Construction Kit, was released around the same time. While modding has always been popular, some see modders as the unsung heroes of video game development. Recognition for modding and the modders who create content for the game in the past has mostly been few and far between. That's why it's exciting to release content, like Ragnarok, so content creators are recognized and valued for their efforts. The Ragnarok team has handled the transition from sponsored mod to official content like pros! There's an added expectation and increased pressure when you become official content for the game. Not to mention, getting a PC mod optimized and running on a console is no easy feat. Collaboration between professional developers and hobbyist is something the gaming industry could benefit from in this day and age. This partnership will often increase the overall quality of mods which, in turn, helps the developers as well. When game developers support high-quality mods for a game, it means there is no loser. The modders win, the consumers win, and the developers win. I know the Ragnarok team is excited with this recent launch and we look forward to bringing you more content in the future! Speaking of new content, we've found another talented modder that we are looking forward to bringing into the Sponsored Mod Program. Many of you may know Impulse, a seasoned modder for ARK. Even if you don't know him, you may be using a mod he's an author of. Ever heard of the Capitalism series of mods? If not, you should go check it out! The Capitalism series is a collection of mods that adds a currency system, among other things. You can then use that currency to do a host of things like offer bounties for players or complete trades. More recently, Impulse has surprised us all with his latest mod, PG Role Selector. This mod allows admins to configure roles which restrict players to a specific set of engrams. We see this being particularly popular with the ARK roleplay community. Be sure to look out for Workshop Wednesday, where I'll be sharing more of the things that are going on behind the scenes of the Sponsored Mod Program. Until then! - Wildcard Ced Community Contests! Player Procedurally Generated Maps! The Procedurally Generated Map system allows players to make their own ARK maps by determining a myriad of landscape options from the heights of mountains, depths of valleys, and the number of lakes, rivers or oceans, to the kinds of each biome they want, and more! Let's check out the entries for this weeks contest! This week's contest winner is... roguewolf!

    Warning - nerdy math post! We've been breeding mosas for a few weeks now on Official PVE. I was excited to get started - thinking about the potential of a fully imprinted mosa with good stats - and I entered all of our tamed mosas into Smart Breeding. Typically when land dinos are bred, it is easy to predict the level range in which they will be born based on the stats of the parents. I haven't found this to be the case with mosas or any other dino without an oxygen stat. Smart Breeding does not allot stats to either oxygen or movement speed when a water dino is entered. Say a tamed mosa has a total of 170 points in health, food, stamina, weight, and damage. Its base level after tame is 224. Where do those extra 54 points go? Perhaps they went into a "hidden" stat category - let's assume that they went into oxy and movement speed. That would be easy to track - simply subtract the visible stat sum from the base level and you have your hidden number. Offspring would simply inherit that hidden number from either parent. Right? Wrong! After tracking the first generation of offspring, I found this not to be the case. I have mosas born 206 to 241 who have entirely different "hidden" stat sums than their parents. In fact, only 1 out of 7 babies had a stat sum matching one of its parents. You can see this illustrated here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_628U4ugVeb2ccp796gEKpUOidopYaPtAUcWAcaVzyA/edit?usp=sharing After sorting this all out, I'm ready to conclude that the extra level value given is a randomly generated number. Do you agree?

    Will server wipes help WC sell more copies of the game and make more money = not guaranteed. Will server wipes hurt WC causing thousands of people to quit, and making those players leave horrible feedback and hurt sales and any future games & DLC they make = GUARANTEED. Pretty sure they don't want to lose money or potential future sales.

    hello there so I've been playing on my own server with a friend and the game is a ton of fun except for the part where I have to build stuff, it is THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING I've ever done but I have a few suggestions that can help it improve let's get to it so first the snapping for the sloped roofs and pillars is an absolute pain in the arse and it kills me on the inside every time so if that can be fixed id love you forever we should be allowed to build walls that are slightly inside the ground in case your house was on uneven ground and you used pillars to keep it up it would be nice to be able to hide all that ugliness underneath and make us able to build staircases downwards and not just upwards for the same reason above, yeah and fix the railing make us able to stand on it because the only thing it does is frustrate you and get you stuck against walls oh and make us able to build walls next to sloped walls instead of only being able to place the walls before the slope that would be very nice and also make us able to build roofs directly on foundations like a carpet since I really hate the way iron foundations look but they are the best protection from anything really, in the game it shows that you can but when you try it doesn't work it just flashes green and then disappears when you try to place it and please make hatch frames that have the hole on the side so to make us build ladders directly on the walls and still fit through the hatch frame if you get what i mean now to the pipes and wires, oh boy the pipes and wires are MASSIVE and I mean insanely massive it would be nice if they were a lot smaller (making every piece cheaper) or make us drag and drop them with the price increasing the longer they are also, pipes that have a hole on the side instead of the intersections so you can place them inside a wall to place taps that aren't very far from the wall thus very ugly and not worry about that huge pipe poking out of the house on the outside and make pipes that simply turn cuz these intersections are very unpractical and ugly unless you are trying to link more than 1 water source or want to go 3 different directions which is rarely the case I might edit this in the future in case I forgot something or have something new to add I can see the massive potential in the building system but its very buggy and frustrating thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks if you fixed it

    I know you, and you're reporting the wrong people. A little bit of understanding would go a long way. That island you're referring to is occupied and has been for as long as I can remember, by a 4 player tribe. They were there before you, and have been protecting the spawns and their base, this latest patch meant they had to place ceilings everywhere or be trolled by [][][][][] tribes like last time this happened. Same reason people have placed lone pillars with ceilings until devs figure out DILO they're doing with resource spawns. Reporting people for defending their territory from trolls is ridiculous and just goes to show what started this problem in the first place. People complained about pillars, now this is the alternative. The server you're on only functions properly because of people like that, and you're saying they should be wiped? Go deal with the invasion of block tribes building on every mountaintop and beaver dam, blocking caves or in the case of one asia server I've been on, the entire swamp. Then complain about pillars protecting bases. Smh PS - no fresh spawn needs a campfire, never stop picking berries - it gives you needed fibre and cheap raw food until you can find a place to build a hut. Beaches are generally full, people tend to build near where they spawn and most servers have been running for over a year.

    UPDATE; It seems to have gotten worse since Ragnarok announcement at E3. It's been on and off since then and on june 16,17 and 18th this cluster has been knocked out/down for 6-9 hours at a time, which was my gaming time. Quite bummed about this.

    Different splits on the hidden oxy and movement? For example if Baby had 23-23 but if Magnus had 32-29 you could get a 32-23 split on their baby Minnie, IE its 45 wasted.

    Even if they did make new servers with transfers disabled, how long would they be disabled for? 3 months 6 months it's still not enough time for a tribe to build up strong enough to defend against a mega tribe when the transfers are finally enabled. And these noob servers will be prime targets for megas and trolls alike when the protection goes down. Bottom line is closed servers make people quit when they get wiped, transfers alow them to stay playing the game and move server. You don't want all the new players joining new non transfer servers and then getting wiped and finding their characters stuck on a hostile server. Ark is survival of the strong, we all had to build up with stronger tribes ahead of us, now they are wiped and we are the strong tribes it's part of the game, why should it be different for the new players. We would lose more new players from a total wipe because With no strong tribes after a total wipe it will be chaos as there is no leadership on the server, you think the trolls are bad now? The experienced trolls will run riot wiping everyone who can't rush turrets and metal (ie everyone except the experienced players in big tribes) new players will quit before they learn the game everyone they meet will put them in a cage for hours and no one will let them build. Most alphas will only wipe someone when there getting too big but a recovering alpha after a wipe will demo every wood hut until they have fully rebuilt.

    Hey, is there any idea when a mute option is coming up in this god forsaken game? It's almost being released and it still doesn't contain one of the most primary options that every online game is supposed to contain. Global chat flooded with chinese squares or french/german gibberish is not what I like to see in the morning (No offense to any of you, I know there are chill people that speak english in global and you got huge respect from me guys). @Jat? Anyone? T_T Pleaseeeee this is a torture! And every time you ask them to switch to tribe or local they do this: EDIT: Yes I know there's an option to remove entire chat but I don't really feel like losing 90% of a nice conversation just because one kid is spamming various kinds of diarrhea on global.

    i just feel many people hope a wipe to be some huge equalizer so they can finally have a "fair" competition with others, but thats never gonna happen there will always be that guy/tribe that has broken op dinos/equip after a week or so, imho they tried the "wipe thing" with extinction servers and most players didnt appreciate it,
  25. 2 points
    False. We've never bought anything in-game with real money and we've never even bought a wyvern, golem nor a Giga for in-game currency, yet we have plenty of them and yes, we'd quit if the servers were wiped.

    The fact that the Studio leaves us hanging with its decision only to prevent the impending poopstorm right before launch if it really pulls this thing off is, I think, one of the major problems. Most people (well - at least I do) dont know whether to play or not to. If I knew there would be a wipe, I'd certainly be upset and stop playing. No point for me in taming or building or even cooking one silly kibble if I knew in 2 months everything is gone. But the very situation with WC holding back it's final decision makes it clear to me that they already decided to wipe and keep this information to themselfes only to prevent a massive outrage on forums where all the dirty laundry will be dug up and thrown in their face. Not only that it intentionally betrayed its playerbase by taking away what they paid up to 50 bugs for, but there would be no communication with the studio, tickets unattented to, no server supervising, no customer support whatsoever, no cheating and exploit protextion. ALL THESE THINGS will flood the forums whether they are true or not only to harm the game. It's up to wildcard whether they risk their game demolished by 1. angry EA-Players who got stripped off their efford, 2. angry new Players who (apparentelly) don't find a place to build (its a cute reason - and the only one imh - for people who demand a wipe) or simply stop swirling around, put new servers online and everyone - and I mean EVERYONE - is happy. Last will cost money. The first two will cost a lot more.

    They have stated that there is no intention to wipe servers at launch, with the exception of very low populated or empty servers that may get re-purposed with a 1 month notice. As for how low a low populated server needs to be that is unknown.

    Is anyone else having an issue with skins spawning on PS4? I took 4 hours to get all of the explorer notes so i could get the bone costumes ans they spawn in with me in singleplayer but not on official servers. Ive tried suicide to get my inventory refreshed but it wont work. Does anyone know what i should do?

    As I said in another thread, I strongly believe that WC tries to wind itself out of all statements they made against a server wipe from a year back. There is an obvious reason why PVP-Servers call out for a wipe. Only to establish balance (whatever) for like a month until the old power structures established again. But it's hard for them to wipe the PVE servers due to there is no halfway acceptable reason for it. People only mimimi for not being able to build everywhere they want on an already full server. Thats it. But WC seems to try to outsmart the community by deliberatelly implementing an update that led to the downfall of most PVE-Servers none the less. Im talking about this horrific pillar-update which's only effect was to systematically destroy entire landscapes and completelly obliterated a servers ressource economy. I sure hope they didn't do that for this particular reason but it sure looks like they're actively searching for an excuse to rewind their earlier statements not to wipe servers. Now all they need to do is to wait another 1 or two weeks to speak out to the community: "oops... we... erm... yeah... it kinda didnÄt work out as we planned it to. Well... most PVE maps are a complete desaster. We COULD just erase all lone pillars but we kinda made it that everyone was forced to place a spawn blocking structure above 'em, so the only way we can get this straight again is to completelly raze all structures. That sure sucks... but hey! You brought this on yourself! We didn't force you to exploit our changes in the game!" I'm telling you. If this will be the official reason for a PVE-wipe, WC cowardly provoked it rather than just pulling its poop together.

    You could go one of two routes if you wanted a torpor dealing flyer. 1) Giant Wasp: Wasp are notorious for their paralyzingly poison which they use to incapacitate other insects inorder to lay their eggs on the helpless victim for a first meal. 2) Poisonous Bird: There are a few cases of modern birds that secrete toxins derived from their diet in order to ward off predators.

    Incorrect. An official announcement was made in very clear and definitive language. If it turns out this statement was nothing but a lie, the s*** storm that will follow will make the "paid dlc" ordeal pale in comparison.

    Other possible workarounds are floating the babies in water, their food drops much slower when in the floating animation. Leaving a daeodon or 2 nearby with passive healing enabled. at the cost of a lot of food from your troughs.

    They will contact you via the forum private message system (could take anywhere from days - few weeks). You get a basic Tax form to fill out and return, and they request your Paypal info to send prizes to. Prizes are done in batches which seem to be every 1-2 months currently (much improved from previous waiting times). On another note, didn't think the DK stages would place so that was a neat surprise. Was a quicker, fun idea and a test for some upcoming stuff. Planning to do a retro/90's recreation series of several different things. Think I'll come up with something different for freeforms, they took too much time.

    Sorry to break it to you but the whole world Arent filled with mirrors of you. No one really cares that you think there's too many players for your taste, and I bet WC would rather have more players than few players. Go restart from scratch multiple times not using trade forum and do all the bosses on hard mode solo. Please then go tell me you want a wipe.

    IIRC "7 days to die" spawns you in with a single block that when placed, stops players from building within so many feet of you. Combining this with a building buffer zone around resources could be a fix. It would stop land hogging, make the map look better because there wouldn't be 14,000 pillars, make the map load faster, and protect resources. Just my two cents.

    Well i really think the same approach should be taken that was done with dragons and have the high cap moved to 190 like wyvern eggs. Since we can never stack mutations or genetically create a higher level we should be given the same range we get on wyverns.

    Oooh devs why did you do that to me After 2.8k hours of play time i was finally at the end of my interest in the game and the biggest reason was the time consumed playing this game So i stopped playing for about 2 weeks. Then i saw the latest update: Ragnarok map with wyverns and thought.. nice, if i ever restart it'll be on that map.... then reading further i saw it: new creature GRIFFIN. Now that right there is my all time favorite phantasy creature (hence my gaming name ). Conclusion..... My break was a very short one, i have now started a new single player game on ragnarok and i must say i have found the perfect spot. Highlands north, that beach is huge and flat, it has beached whales giving keratin, hide, spoiled meat and a trickle of oil. On the left there is the lava region which houses crystal (and megalania...) and on the right are the highlands with metal, sheep and horses (but also allosaurs which are not far from my base...). And to top it all off, the seafloor drops almost immediately so a water pen is definitely possible here. I'm loving this map, great resource distribution, very nice scenery and SE and normal engrams. My thanks to the devs and the creator of this great map. Ow and a little note from my wife "i hate you all for keeping my husband tied to this game..."

    I often see normal leeds on center. In weird places like the leviathan bay, which is very swallow (indeed a leed destroyed a very nice boat I made for new users that spawn on my base with free gear/tools/custom meat so they were able not only to go out but have a nice reward. Ofc if a bad coded leed destroyed it Im not gonna to replace with a new one). However I havent seen any alpha leed at center yet. In the island map I havent seen a leed since the tek cave patch, and also, the underwater caves are broken, with no big spawns in it, just cynidarias, eels, pheromone slimes and passive water creatures like dolphins and salmons.

    This can be done with ark-tools tribes --creatures --tribeless --pretty /path/to/savegame.ark /path/to/output/folder/ The savegame file and all .arktribe files have to be in the same directory. This will get you a list of all dinos for all tribes (and people without a tribe count for the "tribeless" tribe).

    Its the risk of playing, there are always alpha tribes you just have to try en hide or group up with others, me en my friends play only in the weekend, so we dont have a big base en get raided sometimes. I can remember it good our first encounter with a alpha tribe, we only had our first raft with a few things on it(we decided to live on the ocean) when all of a sudden 4 guys from a alpha tribe with there T-rex and argy's were standing in front of us! While we were standing there with only a spear and a bow and arrow.... the started to attack/destroy us. When i told them 2 stop en we will pay them some contribution to live. The stopped we gave them some of our stuff en the left us alone. 1 week later the come again en we gave some stuff again just 2 stay alive. it worked well for us for a few weeks its also a kind of roleplay en we didnt get raided anymore. so last week they came again, this time we were prepaired with some guns armor and a turret (because we payed weeks of contribution to be alive we collected alot of stuff to prepair for our next encounter) en this time the where suprised! We killed there argy's and T-Rex en there characters, after that happend we collected there stuff (we met up with other tribes who also got raided by them in the past weeks so the can help us) en we all went to there base en destroyed the alpha tribe and there base!:D I think thats how it should work, Not saying the admins should'nt do a wipe bcause of the tribes that put's spikes en other things on spawn locations and blocking other things like obeliks but just leave the server en join another 1 en make aliance. some trading can help you band with them
