    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! ARK: Valentine's Day! Beginning tomorrow, February 12th until February 18th, love will fill the air as we celebrate Valentine's Day! The ARK will be placed under Cupid's loving spell. With this event, creatures have also been affected by Cupid's spell in the following ways: Red, Pink, and White colored wild creatures can be found wandering the ARKs searching for true loves kiss. When mating, creatures have a 25% chance to drop an item. That item has a 50/50 chance to be one of the following: Valentines Chocolate: Restores full HP, or knocks 40% off a creatures taming bar. Valentines Candy: Gives your tame random dino colors when eaten. All servers official and unofficial will also experience the following bonuses (auto-activated or can be toggled manually by running ActiveEvent=vday): Mate Boosted range increased by 2x Mating Speed and Mating Recovery increased by 3x Creature Maturing and Egg Incubation speed has been increased by 3x Baby Food Consumption has been decreased by 1/3 Survivors also have the opportunity to send out their own customs Valentine's Day card to their loved ones. Head over to playark.com/valentines and create your custom card! Be sure to send us a tweet with your image attached and the #MateBoosted, so that over the course of the week we can retweet your loving messages! PC Patch Notes: Xbox & PS4 Patch Notes: Upcoming Server Maintenance! On February 13th beginning at 7am EST we will be conducting a small maintenance on a portion of our NA Official Servers. During this time the servers will go offline in succession therefore all will not be going down promptly at 7am. The servers will not be running during this maintenance period once they are down. We anticipate the full maintenance duration to take a few hours however the servers will be booted back up shortly after they are taken down, which should minimize individual downtime. Also worth noting: In our next patch we will be renaming all legacy servers to include "LEGACY" in their names. This change will not affect your favorites but the name will be changed there to reflect the new name. Legacy servers will be using the following format: LEGACY-servername. Ex: LEGACY-OfficialServer2. This change applies to all platforms that have Legacy servers. Legacy servers will still be located in the Official Legacy Servers tab in the server browser. Attention Builders! Fancy yourself a top tier builder? We want to see what you can do with the new structure changes! Hop into the beta (details on how to do that below) and build to your heart's content using any of our officially supported maps (The Island, The Center, Ragnarok, Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction). You can do this in your single player world or your unofficial server if you have access to one. We’ll be picking the best builds submitted to us for featuring in an upcoming video trailer showcasing the building changes to ARK similar to the announcement video we did for our latest mod contest. Submit pictures and/or a video of your build, your map save and coordinates to your build to arkfans@studiowildcard.com so we can take a look. You can get the direct coordinates to your build location by enabling setcheatplayer true and jotting down the coordinates presented on screen. You can upload your map save to a file sharing website such as Google Drive, Dropbox, etc, and include the link in the email. Today is the LAST DAY to submit your builds! We look forward to seeing your masterpieces! Structures Plus (S+) & Kibble Rework Beta! The Structures Plus and Kibble Rework beta is still available and we're looking for additional feedback as we get closer to release of these features in the near future. We plan to have one more update to the beta for testing before the final version is released to the main game. Please check out the post below for all of the information on how you can get involved in play testing this beta. Modding Community Updates! It's mod tutorial time! Let's continue where we left off in the last tutorial and hook up our transition material to the sentry tower system. We're going to make use of some previously discussed topics and covered a new one, timelines.

    After a whole weekend of playing together with 2 friends on a new Island, starting from scratch, building a new base and taming stuff (we played for 16 hours total, managed to get three good rafts, a nice base and a bunch of tames; but most of all we had tons of fun), I decided to move back to my SP Island yesterday: - Tamed my first ever thylacoleo and I'm absolutely in love. What a fantastic means of transport! - Organised lots of stuff in my stone castle. Mainly storage-related and where I'm leaving what dinos. This one is fairly recent, but it's already become too small, so I might have to build another wing or two. Also the outside pens for my creatures is far from finished. - Tamed 4 allosauruses. Two weak ones, one moderately okay one and one good one. I might attempt some breeding (never done it before) the coming days, especially with the event. I have a bunch of rexes walking about that I could breed as well I suppose.

    PS4 Nitrado – We made the move to Ab last week, none of us having played the map before. Having a great time without flyers. Set up a big walled off open air base not far from the portal area. Got the basics set up, industrial forge, cooker, greenhouse etc. Tamed a few high level bears and bred those which we’ve been using for early game exploration. Starting a spino breeding line as well and got a sheep farm on the go for mutton tames. Tamed a 150 mega as well last night. Decent hp but low melee. But we can hopefully get it a high level mate tonight to start a line. Been venturing deeper into the blue zone, learning the ropes, and generally just having a lot of fun. Did the cave near the portal area. That was easy enough with the 5 of us. Loving the map so far. PC Island with daughter – not had as much time this week as it was her birthday but we got a bit done. Carried on breeding Sabers. Got a decent line coming out at 270 now, all the mutations into health and melee. Will now work the colours in over the next few days so she can look pretty (that of course being the most important element) when we eventually get to do a couple of caves this weekend. Carried on with argy breeding line as well. Got a great blue body mutation. Starting breeding the two 150 Zinos we got as well. Got a great Cyan one pop out, but need to tame some more of these as the stats aren’t amazing. Want the kibble rework to come out soon. As much as I like the progression tree, I don’t have the time in my life to grind on 2 games, taming all the different dinos just for kibble, or babysit and insomniac tickle chicken for 2 hours .Saying that, I did tame some low level Pachyrhinos, as I want to get Barrys breeding asap for underwater and the more difficult caves. Also built a multi platformed ewok village. Not a bad first attempt and learnt a fair bit in the process. This is the precursor to a tek treehouse base on a future map, that I’ve been instructed to build. Been trying to get her more comfortable on foot, so have been venturing out onto Carno island without mounts, just covering her whilst she shotguns everything. Need to speak to her about her language, as ‘come at me b*tch’ seems to be the standard line before opening fire.. Also hooked the PC up to the projector the PS4 plays through. This way I can just sit on the couch and play both maps at the same time, switching from one to the other to imprint. Lazy mode level 10.

    Disappointed that there is no purple color as part of this event. Not a single event has purple color appart from that one when exctinction was releasing, which will not happen again. While red and white were part of event 45 days ago..... I think you guys should distribute colors so that there is repeatable event for each color.

    Hey all! I have tamed 32 Phoenix to date, and I have just updated my 2018 video to 2019, making it a cleaner video with a slightly cleaner build ... with my method, everyone can trap and tame their own Phoenix. Don't buy a clone, tame your own! I did this on PS4 PvE Official Servers, but should work across the board. There are other methods (just pillars and ceilings, etc.) that work as well, but I have used this method for over a year and it works 100% of the time. Happy hunting!

    Look, I'm not here to argue Philosophy of Science here, we can do that somewhere else if you want, but you're right.. The point I'm trying to make is, I am not convinced this game will improve my enjoyment of the game, thats the context I should have specified, I was sloppy thats fair. . So, no, accounting for tamed kibble, all that are separate claims that have their own separate hypotheses. If you want me to clean up my language thats fair, I get it, I decided to be pedantic, I deserve what I dish out, all is fair. So let me try this again, I am not convinced this rework gives a meaningful advantage to the game, and I am using that in the context of, my personal enjoyment of the game. Are you satisfied with that? Or do I need to revise it further. It seems to me like an update no one asked for (I'm sure somebody did, I'm being hyperbolic), when I'm still dealing with bugs that have existed since I first started playing this game 2 years ago, like getting stuck in floors, wild carnos clipping through walls and killing my tames that are inside a sealed building I've built, game crashes from random errors I couldn't even begin to decipher what they mean with the long strings of code the popup describes, like my guns sticking on the reload animation which costs me critical time to reload to survive an encounter, the absolutely dismal inaccuracy of the gun sights and hit detection, as someone who comes from a first person shooter background, this one particularly bothers me, and the list goes on. Those issues seem far more pressing, than changing the kibble recipes and devoting a bunch of time to that, they're not adding new content, they're changing whats already there, (which I don't think is inherently a bad thing) but I feel like this is one of the things that isn't a problem that needs addressed. Anyway thats my feedback, for what its worth.

    WC could figure out a way to have long term PvP servers with leader boards. But at some point no new players will be able to join, survive, and actually get anywhere. Never letting possible competition grow to be competition is a good strategy. But it dosen't make for a very fun game.

    I think these are some interesting ideas for official servers. I think more cross clusters of just 1 of each map would be good, but they probably need a wipe cycle. Like 6 months or yearly. I think a set of non-clustered single servers could be interesting. But also needs a wipe cycle.

    I went on an Allo hunt last night, couldnt find any in close vacinity so I gave up and bred some more and hatched some more. Nothing new, no mutations or anything but I got another stat merged on my Ptera line so 326 now, definitely need some new blood so will try and tame a few later tonight. Hoping to pick up my Yuty egg tonight so that will be a painful few hrs as I will watch it very carefully get to 10.1% mat before feeling safe to leave it this time. 16k ingots now hidden away from my tribemate in a safe, wanting to fill it completely before he say we need to do a metal run because we have run out... then to hear him once I tell him to check 'Anarki's Personal Stash' vault with 70k ingot sitting there I know he has a plan to rebuild a new greenhouse and some little cliff platform huts to turn into new rooms so he will need a lot of metal for that - he builds, I gather. Its a good relationship. He does all our tactics, I just breed things up... it works. So, another night on Center went by quickly and a little good fortune with a stat here and there. Lets hope my Yuty works out and that I can find some new Allos to start breeding as my current line doesnt look like it will turn out particularly well. Oh, and I donated a 269 born Ptera to a new guy who was struggling with the game. I like to do that

    Hahaha, no problem. Run while you still can... Because if ARK gets its hooks in, you are boned! I just had an absolute max level (a wild 150 female, the birth comes to 225) Reaper King baby -VANISH- inside my base. It didn't starve, it didn't die, it just vanished. Of course 15 hours later it shows up on tribe log as "starved" which is horsepiss. I submitted a ticket that will most likely be laughed at by the lackadaisical skeleton-crew of a support team that "Grapeshot" studios (Grapeshot IS WildCard, they just rebranded to develop Atlas with impunity from the bad things/PR around ARK) has left WildCard. There will be no recompense to me losing this dino from a 100% unavoidable game bug, and regardless of what any knuckle-dragging, white-knighting, blame-passing moron would tell me, nothing was done wrong, nothing needs to be done differently. It is a bug, and nothing will be done about it. They will send me the equivalent of a support-industry form-letter, telling me in different words (but essentially the same message), "LOL THAT SUUUUUCKS!!! But we got nothing for you dood, no replacement. But please keep playing, and if you wanna submit a BUG REPORT you can. Really though, we aren't working on bugs, we are working on Atlas. SO RIP YOUR BABY, and keep on surviving you dumb DireWolf!" The worst part is....... I will. Because I love ARK. And I hate ARK. EDIT: "DireWolf" is the forum-censorship's equivalent for a child born outside of wedlock... Never actually seen that before. Thought I'd pass it along.

    Today is a historic day for my Ark Solo Playthrough. Finally, I completed Ascension on both Beta & Alpha on the Island Map. I did not use any cheats except admin commands to increase gamma, speed up time using slomo & "ghost" when I get glitch stuck on surfaces. But, to make my life easier & to avoid the frustration & agony of losing my favorite Dinos, I had started my Solo playthrough with settings slight tweaked from official. My settings are: Max Dino Level 240 ie: difficulty = 8x (official is 5x at 150) Increased gathering/harvesting rates. Imprint quality up to 100%(default is 20%) Completing Ark Solo no-cheats with official settings is IMO impossible since Alpha Dragon, Brood & Ascension is impossible. Same with King Titan. So I made the changes to make it at-least possible, though extremely tough. I am posting my Boss Fight(Gamma to Alpha to Ascension) videos on Youtube at the below link. If you don't like it guys, just tell me where I messed up. If you do, please leave a like. I won't monetize my youtube channel coz I'm an amateur hardcore gamer & I play for fun & escapism only. Here's the link to my Playlist: PS: I haven't yet uploaded my 1080p 60FPS Beta/Alpha Ascension videos but will do so in a day or two. Right now, I'm super-duper excited about cross ARK transfer to Scorched Earth. Believe me, even with my server stats, Beta & Alpha Overseer fights were long & hard. EDIT: I have uploaded Beta/Ascension Tek Cave & Overseer videos. They were completed on the same day, I made this comment but I had to edit the video on the following day due to office work. Anyway, Tek Cave is easy. Only Gigas & Allo Gnash are a danger. But Overseer on Beta & Alpha make liberal & excess use of their stun-lock beams. In fact, on Alpha, if you check out my video, I was hiding behind the pillars & distracting the drones the entire time as the stun-beams were like every alternate second. Fight was scarier than Alpha Brood or any Dragon fight.

    Like I understand you can still enjoy aspects and have fun, but to defend this game having experienced it, is either very low standards, or you've dedicated way too much life and refuse to see it as bad.

    I can see you are upset thats ok just breathe it will all be over soon. I agree with the OP and i feel ark has changed quite a bit since it went full release. Some would argue it is still in early access and I would agree with them in certain things but that is another story for another day. I would love to see players work together and have commeraderie but what can you do when you live in a shoe? WC provides a servicesses for us all to enjoy with our friends, family loved ones, aunts uncles children , parents, friends of lovers. We all use it for free without subscriptionz and lyke many other online games can have good aspects and bad aspects to it. The bad is logging in to abuse and that is sad also but it can be fixed. You ask your neighbour why yuou hate me so much? He can reply and say you build on his land and he dont lyke you but lets be serious sometimes players do things and it can be very frustrating. Some like otters while others like beavers and farming beaver dams but no dams and no otters and no beavers. This is very upsetting for many players because they cant do what they like to do because some other tribe is building near these spawn zones and nobody is able to police it. if you play on legacy server there is no support so not much can be done on those serber but when you play official ticket times can take weeks sometimes months until GM reply. This makes players very upset and they cry and I don't like to see people's tears it makes the game experiences very unenjoyablistic and thats not good you know? I agree things should change and players should change we should all change for the better and treat everyone equal and love eachother and life and game to the fullest every day for eternity and maybe one day ark will be great again I think. Most player hope for this day to come when they can log into a new server after buying the game on sale and thinking i want to enjoy everything ark has to offer without dealing with other players. Well they are in for a big surprise so they log into server create character and spend about 30 mins making all body proportions and face just right. Then they crash. So have to do it all over again. Very mad indeed. So they do it all over again and finally spawn on the beach somewhere but they are inside an enemy structure or anothersome tribe and they ask hey can you release me? please friend? i want to play the gamez. can help plox? but nobody answer for 3 hours. all global chat say to shut up dont wine but you are stuck and need help. sometimes players come and they hel;p you but others say do it yourself or dont answer or it is [][][][][] who knows what this means? [][][][][][][] I don't do you? It s difficult to learn languages of [][][][] and cant copy global chat so it hard. I like to usz googlale translation for helping to ask quetion if i dont speak [][][][][]/ so back to spawn in base story. if you get out of base finally you spawn in a are not inside a base or fence. You go to beach and is nice llocation you farm thatch structures but you cant place them too close to enemey foundations. you ask why csnt aI build here? too many pillar ebverytwhere. I dont like it I am very angry you know? So I complain why nowhere to build? The server has been running for over 1 year but i just joined and I expect to build everywhere. Surely no other players would thing to build where I like to build. But my dreams get crushed,. all spot taken so im upset. I go to hard area, giga eats me and my pet dilo. I cry hard because it took a long time to tame that dilo and dodo. then tame cap hits. I try to tame another dilo but says too many creaturas on this ark. people yelling at chat DONT TAME THAT DLO I say i should be able to tame whatever I want. They say no you cant. I left server, and unistalled game. I can't take it anymore. Very bad ecperience.

    Seems its identical to Atlas from what i read. I think the number of people being very critical of what they buy from Wildcard, Grapeshot, or even Snail games will just continue to increase. WC needs to find a way to bring back players and player retention.

    The game was never as chill as you make it out to be... youre just living in nostalgia. The times hes talking about it waaay before unoffials came out. When scorched was the only other server, before transfers. I explicitly remember back then people wiping others with lured rock elementals..wasnt as toxic free as Op Makes it

    WildCard did not take any responsibility for the server usage on PvP - Offline Raiders ruin Ark. Millions of ideas have been pushed infront of them to improve the game but meh.. they don't care
  25. 1 point
    This game has actually improved a lot. I personally think PvE official should be discontinued....move to the unofficial realm. PvE requires babysitters to make players share land and tame slots. Just release the files, like legacy. Speaking of Legacy, rip the bandaid off already. Biggest mistake ever. Official servers should be PvP only in some form. Timed PvP servers, more types. All ORP servers should have alliances removed (loophole closed). Smaller clusters. There also should be more variety of timed wiping servers. And lastly, there should be a subscriptions based teir of official servers with active admins. Side note: I think SOTF should be developed again, and used to make money (similar to Fortnight with a cosmetic cash shop)

    It is true that so many people purchased the game when it was first out, like £27 i think upon initial release when I got it, not much revenue i bet and since then the community has dwindled away slowly due to their own incompetence and lack of experience building games and maintaining quality, servers will be costly but WildCard do one thing that REALLY annoys me and that is IGNORE THE FACTS from the community, We tell them what is wrong and they ignore it and release more content? they dont fix anything and publish the broken game on the android, Ios and Switch!? The most backwards company I have ever known. <--- Nearly at 'No Mans Sky' standards! Ark used to be hundreds of island servers all showing server 1 -70/70 connected server 2 -70/70 connected server 3- 70/70 connected server 4 - 70/70 connected And I used to spend 30 minutes bashing join hoping to get in ! it was such a fun and magic experience and I could not get enough... Now its dead.. rotten decomposed death! Because they ignore us! fail improving quality and show ZERO acknowledgement on issues raised so far and reassure us things are being done about them. we are a community that PREY we are heard and hope for fixes, Wild Card sould be at least 1% decent and highlight them and show us they are working on them and tick them off each updated! look at these we can all agree on and they done NOTHING! Meshing! - still a thing Map holes - everywhere Disappearing dino's - everyday tickets - unanswered Broken Meta dino's - untouched disconnection issues - 24/7! graphic flaws - everywhere render issues - never changes Lag Spikes - FML... High ping - just play Rag... GM response time - you die in real life before they help you events - to far and few apart (breeding events are as rare as a ticket being answered) Shall we continue WildCard!? CHANGE YOUR ENTIRE PROGRAM WC!

    Should say: WC destroyed their own official servers. Perhaps it was intentional, less servers= less cost. Official servers numbers have slowly been whittled away. Single player and unofficial communities are great.

    Server transfer was the ''death of ARK''. It was ''said'' as soon as it was hinted by wildcard, it was ''guaranteed'' when they added a date to implement it. it is now ''FACT'' that ARK is ruined having it in place. ARK destroyed their own game.

    As much as I still enjoy ark, the best days were pre server transfers. No random bobs just popping on, placing 40 behemoth gates and stacking it full of rexes only to be seen once every 5 days for 10 seconds. The island knew which tribes had particular dinos and abilities and there was a much greater sense of community. When a tribe went crazy, the entire server rallied to sort them out, and they pulled back into line at they had no where else to go. Fun times.

    Lack of pve threats is a big reason behind pvp toxicity. With no meaningful survival threats anymore, people turn on each other. The friendliest ark.servere i seen were back when i was playing with other beginners, back in days before gamma 5 and level 400 bred super dinos. The struggle to survive in this hostile alien environment brought people together. Now the environment is a joke, ark is like rust, purely pvp and all.tye assosiated problems that come with it. I would make all wild dinos stronger and able.to damage structures like corrupted dinos. Also introduce a purge element like conan where titans, overseer drones, corrupted dino armies etc begin spawning and attacking tribes that reach tek tier. Of course this would not happen, because the hardcore pvp community do not actually want a survival game.

    You know, I have had this website saved for ages. I used to check it every day. Follow Arks updates, and imagine the possibilities. Read about the new creatures and updates. And see the community creations. But now? I am removing it sadly. It doesn't really get used anymore. And when I do click on it, it's unfortunately filled with contests and information that has very little relevance to my game experience. The posts are infrequent and inconsistent in content and quality. There simply has to be more going on in the community than these pitiful entries would lead someone to believe. As sad as it makes me feel, I think Ark had its run. It was a good one. But, the developers aren't interested in the level of support they once had for it. I don't blame them at all. It's the reality of both the industry and time itself. But I always felt that Studio Wildcard was better. That they tried to consistently keep the fans updated. But now, it's become mostly unreliable to still expect that from them. This used to be a very relied upon feed. Not so much anymore. But the memories of the passed few years with Ark was great. Maybe ARK 2: Survival Evolved Further will rejuvenate your love for the community once again in the future

    It's called "convenience" and "Quality of life". As it turns out, humans beings like things like automatic drills, screwdrivers, cars and smart phones. If everyone were like you, we'd be peddling stone cars like the flintstones and manually digging up roads and house foundations with our hands. Maybe you'd prefer having to manually force-feed dinosaurs too, instead of having them automatically feed themselves when they have food in their inventory. You're completely wrong about the new kibble's being "easy as picking up stone" too. Either you're a troll or you are very young, in the latter case I don't blame you for having an infantile mind. Just try to think for once.

    Max level is controlled by the DestroyTamesOverLevelClamp setting which is set to 449 on officials. This also includes the 73 levels gained with xp you can distribute yourself so if your babies hatches above level 376 you won't be able to fully train them which is why you want to remove useless stats from your breeding line (e.g. speed points, or oxygen for land creatures, etc.).

    Without having played the beta yet, these things I want to comment on: I like that prime fish meat isn't needed in any of the recepies. Can the cooked prime meat please be replaced with prime meat jerky? Seems pointless to make it now, and I really like that jerky doesn't spoil as quick. If cooked prime meat stays as kibble ingredient, I'd like to see prime jerky added as imprint "kibble". Will all dinos ask for extraordinary kibble for imprints on all maps? If yes, I can see myself replacing all the egg layers I don't need any more with snakes, so we will still have the same tame count (unless drop rate is increased, but then the eggs wouldn't be special any more). If so, my suggestion would be to remove extraordinary kibble from the imprint(!) kibbles. I don't like the focal chili and lazarus chowder in the recepies. I need to look up two recepies now (food and kibble) and it seems like just another time sink. How about using more crops and some obsidian, crystal, silica pearls, hard poly or even black pearls instead (although some of those mats would be really annoying to carry due to their weight). Can "special taming food" (deatworm horns for mantis, carrots for horses, pearls for tusos) still be used too for max. efficiency? I hope so. And a question for the ones who tested it; If you look at the eggs, does it say in their desciption which size they are? If not, I really would like to have that added as text ("small egg" etc.) and/or color code (egg text color matching kibble text color).

    I cannot believe I bought this game. It seems like EVERYTHING is broken. I assumed an indie developer created this. It's an embarrassment on all game alike. Buy this game if you want lots of new content tons of new dinosaurs but NOTHING ever getting fixed. Tons of bugs. Literally everything is bugged. Like not being able to fire your bow? Like getting stuck for hours without being able to die? Then this game is for you. Its beyond sad. It's like some stupid kid created this and was happy screwing over the world who bought it. Not to mention people just buy dinosaurs and cheat to get them then one hit kill everything and HOURS you put into the game. Hands down biggest regret was playing this game. I'm old school too I even really enjoy old 2d games and this still is the most amount of my life I've ever wasted. I haven't even played that long, thank God, because you will never be satisfied with the level of amateur programming that went into this game.. Save your money, time, and life and play another game or wait until someone makes a half decent dinosaur game.

    I feel slighted by this GreenRoc. You are on my official server - Center60 and we as a community are in a really good place. There is good general discussions throughout the day, many offerings of help, eggs trading, helping people find lost mounts and you seem very negative in your comments about the ARK community. Now I am not saying there aren't gamers in which you have quoted but to say many is very much overkill. I think the selfish gamers have double the impact on players feelings but I would say there are some great gamers out there. I think our tribe of just 2 is allied with 9 tribes on our server and all are so helpful and friendly that I can only say good things about them. I can echo that on our Ext and Ab server, possibly not on Rag but for me 4 out of the 5 servers we play on, people are pretty cool.

    The Center Small Tribes Xbox Haven't really been doing a lot lately just mainly taming, farming and storing loot in the purlovia. Was excited to mate the argies tonight though. Laid down the fert egg surrounded by torches while it incubated with a 1.5 hour timer. Watched a Conor McGregor doco on netflix and when I checked on the egg it had just vanished. This was my first egg hatching aside from boosted unofficial wyvern eggs so I'm not sure what happened here. I'm thinking it fell through the ground or maybe theres something about egg health I dont know about. Poor baby bird never had a chance.

    Just because you can't be bothered to read more than 3 lines of text doesn't mean you should quote this guy and mock him via some bastardized version of being a grammar nazi. Its annoying to those of us who happen to be capable of reading larger blocks of text just fine. Maybe instead ask the poster for cliff notes or an audio version for the reading impaired. Or of course practice your reading skills so you can choose to read what this person has to say. K, thanks!!!!

    My server has an outward appearance of friendlyness but it's run by overlords who hog the server up with old knowledge of the game. They know where all the good stuff is. They take newbs underwing and turn them into overlords in a few nights. Then they taunt you if you don't join their click. Kinda like being back in high school. It helps not to talk in chat at all. Try to stay to yourself and not communicate. You help someone you can be sure they will stab you in the back later. Literally, if you invite into tribe. Since pvp dynamics are ever present in pve. They taunt me because I like otters. Got any otters lately statements that seem nice if read one way but not so much if read in context of how they treat me. Yelling at me if I take up a tiny piece of land way off in some remote corner even tho they own all the main lands and important spots. So no they are not being nice they are mocking. Now ever time I go near the otter spawn I disconnect and think they're hacking somehow and getting me to disconnect.
