    IMPORTANT: Active Enforcement Initiative In an effort to maintain a healthy playing environment, we will be doing active enforcement on the servers listed below.

    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.

    First of all, I've removed the tribe name because we do not allow public naming and shaming on the forums and such information must only be provided privately to Wildcard through support tickets. That being said, while this is a very unfortunate situation, I don't think the GMs will be able to assist since this is not something covered by the CoC. When merging into a tribe, you must ensure you do not give your ownership away. They are the ones that should have merged with you, to you merging with them. By doing so, your Wife basically wilingfully gave everything owned by your tribe to them and as owner, they are free to do whatever they want. This doesn't mean GMs won't take action, though. I've seen them banning players that were not in direct violation of the rules just for generally be bad people causing more trouble than anything else so that is always a possibility but the chance you guys get back your stuff are unfortunately very slim imo.

    I would caution you before outright disabling cryopods because you don't like them, talk to your friends and see how they feel about it first. It's your server, but they're your players, and sometimes it's worth compromising for the sake of keeping them happy. Cryopods are the single biggest QoL upgrade this game has ever seen. If you don't like them then you don't have to use them personally, but that doesn't mean your friends should have to suffer the pain of pre-cryo gameplay. It's not just about tame cap; if you've never had to walk a bronto across the map, or lose a freshly tamed bear to piranhas while crossing a river, or having to caravan a line of 20 rexes to an obelisk, then it might be hard to imagine just how frustrating long distance travel can be in this game. Cryopods aren't just about being easy, it's about reducing the frustration of a game that's already needlessly frustrating for many other reasons. While I agree for lore purposes it makes little sense, I'm very happy that the devs made them available to everyone at a reasonable level and in this case, gameplay trumps everything else.

    Cryopod should be different on PvP and PvE. On PvE where sharing land and tame cap space is important and should be encouraged. Cryopods should be early game and easy to make. No cooldown to encourage player to actually use them, hello breeders. The expiration timers should be much longer. On PvP, they are likely already balanced.

    Shout Out to the Ark Support Team! I just wanted to thank you for being able to bring back my character who was previously erased! It took only three days for the solution and I cant be happier. I had that character for a decent amount of time and i'm just glad i don't have to start from scratch. Keep it up and thank you!

    Meks and Duping For the love of god please dont nerf/cap meks. Its already so hard to find a good blueprint and then even harder to get a good crafter roll on it. Before duping a good mek was super rare. Instead of nerfing meks just remove all meks over level 220 and fix the duping. Sure some meks over that level will be made legit but im sure not many people will complain if it means deleting all the duped meks as well. Pvp players in general shouldnt have to suffer nerfs, of something that was actually balanced for once, because of the real issue of duping.

    yea, anytime anyone offers you their structures, invite them to your tribe, and have them merge with you. If they do anything fishy at that point, you can kick them right off the bat from the tribe. merging with someones tribe that says they are giving away their structures is someone trying to grief people and take their stuff. Never merge with someone else when it comes to taking ownership always have them merge with you. problem is many people playing the game don't understand how the tribe merging works, saying 'good job thief for using the game mechanics' isn't really a good job at all, its just taking advantage of someone elses lack of knowledge. No good job about it, more to the point, more of a dodo bum.

    So are we going to get any explanation or compensation for OC players who have not been able to play in 5 days due to extreme lag or server outages? All OC servers have been down for the last 11 hrs. Not all OC players are in China. This is truely beyond a joke.

    Developers do not care about the game at all, only release new additions. Instead of removing all the flaws, they add new ones with each addition. How many bases were erased when robots rockets destroyed turrets. Now cloned robots and objects or bp. On a 532 server, we were simply attacked by constantly cloned robots that erased the base of players who spent a lot of time on construction. When you will already do what all honest players expect from you. Why should a tribal leader control what his player does. Why don’t you pull your hands out of your ass and write a program that will prohibit dishonest players from doing everything that they do and ban them

    Aberration solo series : - Defeated Gamma Rockwell under 12 minutes as a warm up for the alpha. - First batch of reaper clones is coming along very well, yet very costly in terms of shards. - Started to bred spino which are far cheaper. Current line is around 5.6k hp / 380% dmg (pre-imprint). Recorded a few more solo bosses fights: - Beta Megapithecus. - Alpha Megapithecus (not published yet). - Beta Dragon. Here are some of them : Gamma Overseer Beta Megapithecus Beta Dragon I'll try to upload the gamme tek cave this week (already recorded 108 GB file...) Cheers!

    I would argue that not being able to tame or a breed on a dino capped server, affected core mechanics much more greatly. That's what cryopods aimed to alleviate and they did. The great thing, in this sandbox and open world game, is that you don't have to use them if you don't want. They don't affect how you want to play the game, from a PvE perspective at least. I personally feel they enhance the way I want to play. I did it the normal way, I prefer having less lag and having less bases to upkeep, which benefits the server by opening up more land for noobs.

    Many have argued the exact opposite stance. Why not make the cryo pods available even sooner? They solve a lot of problems that plague servers. If you don't have a cryo pod, you are more likely to leave dinos all over the server. Ones you don't have time to get back to the base after taming, ones you leave at a resource spawn so you can come back and get more of the resource. More tiny bases near caves and resources whose only purpose is to store dinos until you use them next time you are in that area. Also just huge bases full of hundreds of dinos because you have nowhere to store them (like in a cryo pod). I honestly don't play official servers, but also the unofficial servers are better off the more people use cyro pods or something like them from a mod.

    It's either let cryo pods be available or have a whole bunch of servers that are tame capped. your choice

    if there ever comes a mod for it that adds dinosaurs that can be used on console i will completely ditch ark. i know there were bears cause when i watched my uncle play it for the first time he got mauled by a bear, oh hell no mode sounds hard.

    First, put carrots in the hotbar and give them a carrot, without giving a carrot, you can‘t mount them. Then long press for mounting or press the mount button. Then you must always give a carrot if the prompt for a carrot comes up. Too early or too late, you will fall off the horse. Happy taming.

    That's a static picture though. In the reveal you could clearly see the view-port to control the guided missile extend out the side, which could easily be what the bar is representing.

    Island- Doedic where it lets you, Anky where it doesn't though for speed Mantis and pick beats them but Anky and Doedic can be transported with Argy. Mantis can't. Rag- Obsidian Island (located around 68, 15) or the desert metal area has a lot of obsidian deposits too. Obsidian Gacha- decent source as a supplement. Can get up to 30 a crystal. Karkinos is best transporter regardless of map. If using Karkinos bring a weight Ravager too since it halfs obsidians weight. If you want poly though, organic is most efficient. Can get that through organic poly Gacha or killing Karkinos on Ab seems to be best way. Can also use a high melee, organic poly Moschops to harvest to get even more. (Whistle attack to harvest is better efficiency than riding). If map jumping is an issue. Mantis on Rag and SE Penguins on Island, Rag, and Center maps. If on Extinction, kill corrupted for their nodules. Organic poly is easy to gather just get it when you need it since it only stores for 30 minutes (90 minutes if placed in a snail).

    Thank you for the advice I really needed it I was confused.

    It shouldn't. If it does, like kicking you from your tribe, you can just use admin commands to get your tribe and takes back. If this is single player, your island game will just pause like if you sign off any other time. I'm not sure if there is a persistent timer on non-dedicated servers. For PS4 single player, transfers worked like this. 1. Go to ob or transmitter 2. Upload items in ark data (I lost dino's I uploaded in creature data 50% of time so I just used cryos in ark data to take dinos to other maps) Note: Unlike official, items and clothes on you do not transfer so go naked. If you forget it will drop a bag at ob and since server pauses you can get it when you go back to that map. 3. Upload character 4. Exit to main screen 5. Load up next map 6. Choose download survivor and select your character 7. Choose spawn 8. Retrieve items from ob/transmitter Few notes; Do not close game with items uploaded. It often deletes them in my experience. Aberration obs are on surface or the boss terminal down in radiation zone so best to have transmitter unlocked or be ok with going into creative mode and spawning one in and to use it, if you are going to Ab in single player. That should cover it. Tag me here if you have more questions.

    To participate you need to sign in as google user which I'm not. So cant participate. So i give in short few issues in wish to be addressed. -implement trade system. -improve AI of tames specially when they get lost, they don't know to circumvent obstacles and they get stuck too easy. -you don't have PVE servers at all.: Newcomers on official "PVE" servers get killed by enemy foundation as they cant place campfire and die from cold or of hunger. Even if they find place they cant have water as beach is full of pillars and you cant place water intake to bring water to your base bz pipes. Implement taxation for those who place pillars far from their base. In that way those who want to play alone and occupy entire server with multiple bases and rest with pillars have to pay monthly fee lets say 100 metal ingots for every pillar placed with intention to prevent other players to build. At least apply a code to campfire to be able to place it. Code exist as raft and tamed dinos don't have any restrictions on enemy foundations, gates .. ie an flyer can rest with no problems on enemy roof and an raft can move also on coast where sea is full of placed pillars and celling. Wish list is long but let stop here.

    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???? How perplexing, who can guess what this might be? Ongoing Enforcement In an effort to ensure a stable and rewarding experience for survivors on the Official Network, we will be taking a more active approach in ongoing enforcement; including but not limited to wiping or banning tribes who are in violation of the Code of Conduct. In addition to acting on cases that are reported through the ticketing system, we will begin to take action based on metrics from game data and implemented logging systems. Going forward, we will regularly review data from implemented logging systems and third parties to initiate large scale enforcement initiatives. During times of large-scale enforcement initiatives, some servers will be inaccessible until enforcement completes. What Should I Do? Refresh yourself on the Code of Conduct Report any activity that is in violation of the Code of Conduct Be careful who you invite into your tribe, only invite those you trust. If you’re concerned someone in your tribe is in violation or has been in violation of the Code of Conduct, please submit a ticket with any questions you may have. On The Horizon PS4 Primitive+ We are still working to resolve the outstanding issue that's preventing PS4 players from accessing Primitive+. We are in the process of updating and attempting to recompile the mod with the latest content to see if it resolves the remaining issues. We'll keep you updated with any important developments. EVO Event Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 15th of Nov at 1 PM EST until Monday the 18th of Nov at 3 PM EST.

    so yesterday riley got beat up at school, had his arm broken and his nose badly broken among other things, he has always dislike fighting in real life. so he is in hospital recovering. some terds at school parently beat him up for him calling them out cheating in a math test, right thing to do but anyway. so he sadly wont be able to play ark for 2-3 months, or he should not play ark, knowing him he will continue playing for that time. for those who dont know riley is my best friend and the one i spent 90% of my online ark time with. so yesterday i posted about me starting a new world were i am taking things slow and progressing at a slow pace. first chore was to make some narcos, i have set up in the cave in highlands. safe and has metal, obsidian and water right next to me. so went out to the yellow flower patches with carrots my new best stats horse and collect 5000+ narco berries. next was to go ollect spoiled meat from whales, after 30 mins of harvesting and leting the whales respawn i had enough to make 1000+ narcos. so whiel they crafting up i work on building a raft to take to go hyaenodon taming. so finally made a reasonable raft to carry my horse on and return back on. arrived at the shores of the volcanoe and went up to look for some hyenas. they were all over the place. soooo many high levels. after what felt like for ever of pain saking taming i finally got them all. 14 all up. so get them all up onto the boat and i am called to go do some chores, i pause the game and g to do them. bout 20 mins late ri return back and carrots his dead, there are a horde or spider, scorpions and arthros attacking the boat. so i quickly mount onto the raft and zoom off. not sure how it unpaused but whats done s done. bred carrots the 2nd and leveled him up. i bred out 10 other horses to kill. got 40+ levels from them. went out to make some more narcos. found a 140 and 150 trike in a herd of 4 above the waterfall. knocked em out and tamed em using potatoes. went back out to find some sheep to laso and drag into teh pen i made. well i got 2 high lvl males and 4 high level females penned. i figured would find and trap some so whhen i do need mutton i can easily kill them, or if i need to tame some sheep i can easily tame them and not worry about finding them. so as i head back out to look for something else to tame i remember i left my pistol in the smithy, so i dismount carrots the 2nd and run back into the cave, as i am about to exit the cave a freakin giga drops down, i franticly whistle to carrots, but too late, RIP carrots the second. i am real pissed as that is my second horse gone in one day. so i leave the dumb giga to wonder away. i quickly ran out when it was safe and grabbed the saddle and other stuff. bred out a dud horse and leveled it in health and speed. i charged out and shot the giga in the face, next thing i know i running for my life from a giga, i led him into the water where he has stayed for the time being. problem is he fairly close to the raft. called it a day after leveling carrots the third. also got a nice red stripe form my mutation horses. tomorrow i plan to tame some kind of carnivore for meat gathering. and possibly tame a some utility dinos.

    i tried something like that with broodmother, it helps to have them in squads, the bleed only stack to a certain amount, so sending them all in at once otherwise they will all just die, send maybe 5 at a time in, it also means ton wont just be standign there behind other not able to do anything but get hit. so i made a new profile on my ps4 and started a new world on ark rag. the purpose of this one is to slow right down and enjoy the game from all aspects. i feel as though in present times we rush too much and try to progress to alpha within a week, a day for the real pros. with grieving in pve and trolling in pvp it kinda a must to speed progress. so the setting on the server are 2xXP, 5x taming, 3xharvest and breeding is fast. anyway i spawned in highlands and died a few times to allos and gigas, finally got to carrot farm and collected enough for enough to last until i find a horse. i quickly got some crystal and made a spy glass and went off, i had to doge soo many allo packs and gigas. so i finally find a herd of horses near the shore, a 150, 135 and 145. male female and male. now i am gonna be honest here, i have never really tmed a horse, i have attempted it, but failed, so i ususally ask my friends to tame the horses cause i that bad, the problem was i never knew how to tell when to feed them, anyway i finally learnt via practising on some lower levels. so i approach the 150 and jump on, 10 mins later i have him tamed, i run him into the cave and got for the 145, tamed it up and return for the third one, so i make my way back and i kid u not there is a 120 unicorn trotting down by the beach, i ususally dont bother with them as they kinda useless, but its a 120, so i run down and tame it up. i got an idea for it later on, so i tamed up the 135. i take the unicorn out to look for more, i get down to the wyvern area and there is like 10 of them. i scope em out and there behold a 150, 125 and a 130. my lucky lucky day. so i gallop down there and my luck runs out, a wyvern was flying around killing everything. so i freak out and try to think of a way to get rid of it, i make bed and place it down aswell as storing all my stuff on the unicorn, tamed up a low lvl horse and run over, my first though was "f*ck i gonna die" i shoot it with an arrow and run for my dear life, also it was poison which makes it even worse cause if it hits me i screwed. i managed to drag it into the redwoods. stupid thing got stuck in trees and could not get out, so i get cocky and do the horse's emote, really should not have, i got microraptored and then the wyvern shot at me and kill me and the horse. i did not really care about the horse and i also had the bed placed. woke up to find a mantis smacking the unicorn. so i kill it with a slither of health and continue taming. tamed all 3 up and returned back to base. i just bred them good stats into 3 sets of breeders. 1 pair has plain colours consisting of white and black, they are for mutation breeding, the other 4 have cool colour combos. i set for s black striped and orange bodied horse, it got to 100% imprint and its health, stam and melee are the best i have ever seen on a horse in ark. tomorrow i plan on making a small base.

    -Builder: As for what I want in Ark. Server stability, not having to panic, cringe and conduct a luck ritual dance around my computer before transferring servers in case I get another toon deleted would be nice. Other than that, more decorative stuff for bases would be cool.

    The question: What type of player do you most identify as? Is lacking an builder alternative, none of the answers really suit me or my friends. Really seem like you (Wildcard) is underestimating the builder community and think everyone is about the action parts of the game....

    "Ones you don't have time to get back to the base after taming" "tiny bases near caves and resources whose only purpose is to store dinos until you use them next time you are in that area" Both cases I consider to be part of ARK's core gameplay. You tame a dino, you transport it back to base. You want to farm the resources in a specific place, you build an outpost to hold the farming dinos. ARK is an open world game. This means everything happens on a single interconnected map (for the most part). Your perspective seems to be that ARK might as well give up on that, because people can't be bothered to travel and transport. That's fair enough, it's just not the kind of game I thought ARK was. What's the point of the enormous size differences between dinos if you can stuff as many Brontos into a cryofridge as you can Compys? What's the point of the huge map you would have to transport dinos across if you can just cryopod all of them, basically for free, and hop on your Pteranodon? They might aswell turn ARK into a Pokemon game where you walk around with your dinos in your pocket and only release them whenever you need to. Again, if that's the game you want to play then that's fine, but I personally think this is destroying core mechanics of the game.
