  1. How about statistics on server performance? I would think that would be useful to Wildcard as well to maybe adjust where needed and make servers generally perform better and stop kicking everyone all the time.

  2. I'm interested to see how many rollbacks there were in PvE 383 this week, how many dinos in cryopod and how many metal caps were lost because of the rollbacks and how many outage forms were ignored.

  9. Humans are the most useless creature in the game - Primary attack does a measly 8 damage, basically pointless. Titanosaur is way better with 1000. - 0 damage reduction, you have to like craft these stupid clothes to try and protect yourself. - Dumb single melee attack does about the same amount of torpor as regular damage. - Punching takes so long to KO anything, and it damages me to punch stuff. I'll probably die before I KO something. - Pretty much useless other than fighting another equally useless human. - Other people can just bola me and then I'm just stuck

  10. Dunno about your thoughts on how well it swims, that's gonna be a 'let's see' for me, but as for water, there's plenty of water we can see at the bottom of the trench, which by my guess, is pretty big. Not to mention, they're giving us the canoe, and specifically said when they revealed it that 'they wouldn't give us the canoe if we weren't going to be able to use it' (or something like that), which heavily implies the existence of a water biome. Something doesn't need a reason to evolve. 'Evolution' is simply the process of natural selection, and that happens all on its own, ahem, nat

  11. I have put a lot of hours into Ark over 5 years - bought all the DLC. I think it is an inspired, vibrant and ambitious game. In my opinion, it can be a great game - but I will also declare that I think it is also an unbalanced, buggy mess with inconsistent customer support. I would imagine that much of the imbalance is a product of its great ambition. My intuitions tell me that the current way that Ark is played is much different from how the developers intended, where the exploits and imbalance have directed the way the game is played most of the time. It has bugs that I think are worthy

  14. Seriously? It's been out 4 years, and started development 6 years ago and there are many aspects that still play like it's in beta. Does this game not receive updates? There are countless bugs, how is this acceptable? Every time a bug happens, you guys in the community just say "That's Ark!" or "Ark being Ark!", like what is that? You guys attempting to be funny? You guys trying to justify your games problems? You guys are enabling the developers the ignore the bugs. Do you guys not care about the health of this game? Or for Ark 2? Even if they have released patches with various bug fixes, it'

  15. Hey Kronos. Felt froggy so I did some testing for ya. Singleplayer, set up exactly like Official Servers (150 max level, no weird stat scalings or dino mods that affect Megalodons). I spawned in 8 level 135 perfect tame Megalodons: All 8 tamed out to level 202 of course! I spawned in saddles until I had 8 close to 55 armor.. I did this to emulate taking some garden-variety wild tames, not all 150 perfect or bred ones, with less-than-official-capped saddles to see, as you put it, if it can handle unfriendly creatures in the deep. It's harder to emulate a bred squid on singleplayer

  16. I ended up on an Official server. 892 I think it is. It took me about 2 days to find a spot to drop a campfire after about 5 deaths from starving or freezing to death. The other players on the server are friendly and do chat a lot. I'm not a people person myself so I mainly stay to myself, but it is still nice to read the chat to pass time. During the New Years event, I was chilling at the location... Literally because it was in the snowy area and it was cold. Built a small hut to wait in. My pteradon was waiting outside. A frigging sabertooth tiger or something like that attacked the pte

  17. (Singleplayer, Crystal Isles) Finished the base (except forgot to add more furniture to the second floor, so that'll have to be fixed while actually playing). The base now consists of the house, stable (6 stalls, each is meant for one horse, but technically could hold two, as it's 2x2), pen for probably bos (from Animals of Atlas mod), dodo coop, hatchery (thermal torches. I don't quite like them, I prefer hay bedding from CKF Legacy version when it comes to primitive AC options, but it takes a ton of time to load as is, so adding another big mod just for one item is not something I'm willing

  18. Two days ago, PVE Scorched Earth official After my debacle with the jellyfish and losing one of my favorite tames, I decided to finally try SE. I have seen many videos and I even loaded into it a few months ago just to walk around for a few minutes because I wanted to see it. I already know that I will play SE once done with the island so I figured I should maybe get a good start. So I started. And I died... a bunch. But I new that would happen. I even had fun doing it. Heck, at one point I had died so many times in the same area that it looked like a Vegas light show with all the g

  19. Last Week In ARK Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch survivors. In the past, the community has expressed an interest in analytics so we'd like to pilot a new segment called "Last Week In ARK" that highlights general analytics and statistics we collect on the back-end. Consider this a sample of things we might be able to provide if there is community interest. What types of things are you interested in seeing? Are there particular metrics that interest you more? Sound off and let us know! EVO Event There will be no EVO event this week

  20. Xbox Island official PvE I know this topic is 'what you did in ark today ' but here is my highlights of the past few days. Got back into running caves mainly to get explorer notes. Just gradually building my confidence up, as previously ran swamp cave and took quite a battering. So I have done lots of research on the web, bred or traded the appropriate tames for most caves (the major plus point of PvE server). This isn't an exhaust list by any means, as over the the last few months I have done bits and pieces lost to the mists of time. Swamp cave second run, ran with two

  21. Ignore these other people, im not going to downplay someone that has this much experience. I completely understand his frustration, you've been been waiting 22 years for ark to release patches. I do have to ask what was your method of knocking out this griffin, pachy headbut, shotgun or RPG? Because i think your taming efficiency took a dive

  22. Depends. If you're thinking about playing single player, or on a private server with friends, I would say yes. It's a great game, despite the tons of bugs. I would stay out of the official network, it's a awful experience full of performance issues that will turn a otherwise fun and immersive experience, into a mix of annoyances and frustrations. Might as well wait for Ark 2 next year.

  26. Well I will say i had to quit arks multiplayer awhile back. I kept giving it an honest run and did pretty well at times, but the game just got too demanding for anybody that had a job and/or family. But to make the game single player focused would really hurt the experience for me personally.

  29. People say things like this cause after years of screaming for the devs to fix things, many of these things have not been fixed adequately and at some point it just is what it is. I for one have accepted that this game will never be "optimized" and work perfectly whether its the old engine it was built on, or poor coding, or just devs that are inept in some way, it makes no difference as Im not going to be the one to jump in the fray and fix anything. I think the people that can enjoy this game for prolongued periods of time are the ones that can look at a glitch or bug and think "how can I wo

  30. The thing I'm missing here, is .. this doesn't even look like up to personal interpretation at all? The devs told us the Story of Ark via lore bits that are spread across a few maps. The story itself tells of a chronological tale that occurs on those same maps, with several characters that travel between them. This is what Story Mode is. As far as the way the devs have chosen to tell us this Story, the other maps aren't part of it. There is no lore attached to them, they don't exist as far as that Story goes. This whole thread I created was about what is the correct order and m

  32. This is just dumb rubbish people spout not even worth listening to. Ark 2 will be exclusive to Xbox and PC at launch, and will likely remain like that until official release assuming they do early access. It is likely not to come to PS for at least a year, so looking at 2023. You think they'd switch all the official servers off and leave out the PS players for so long. I mean i've not heard such dumb rubbish. I'm done going over this with nothing but foolish tinfoil hattery.

  33. (Official, Extinction) Wanted to just feed the dinos and send the dino leash BP I have to Valguero, but checked the taming HUD, and Diablo still hasn't starved, so I decided to try and get him back after all. For that I'll take one of my female tek rex breeders from Valguero, level her up, make a saddle for her, and send her there. Won't be quite as strong as if I sent the male (because mutations), but male's still not disposable because I haven't managed to hatch a replacement so far, so a female will have to do. Just gotta pick one that inherited Jotunn's stats, and not Empress'. (Offic

  34. Spent some time feeding gachas today. Mostly junk and things I already have but I also got 3 pieces of journeyman riot gear, a few pieces of flak of varying levles, a MC longneck rifle, another journeyman sniper rifle, a journeyman assault rifle... and some chibis. I got both a rex chibi and a party rex chibi. I have no idea what the difference is. I also got a chibi for a tuso and a reaper, which sounds pretty cool but... I need to tell you all something... I have no freek'n idea what a chibi is . I had to look it up and here is what google says is the meaning of Chibis... "is a Ja

  36. (Official, Valguero) Bred tek rexes. Went to the redwoods to throw cluster grenades at Broodmother. Game froze. Damn. .. Back on, I'm alive, Phobos too, turns out there's still two broodmothers, still mate-boosted, AND there's an alpha carno in there, so alpha-boosted too. Grenades didn't wound them even in a slightly visible way. Should have brought regular ones - cheaper, could have made TONS. Ran out of grenades, not gonna go down there and bite the spiders myself, so just gonna hunt stuff and then head back home. ... Phobos got a new level, I killed 4 alpha carnos (and

  37. I've been literally running 20 forges, so I decided to splurge and craft an industrial forge. Gathered up the mats, crafted, and went to place it.. and it didn't fit. You know, that picture is very misleading. It is much larger than you would anticipate. I also crafted about 20 cryopods and put any dinos that did not have a utility use in them for now. Less food for me to gather in the long run and they still get xp in the cryofridge.

  38. Only because everyone wants the easy and quick tame. When CI dropped I tamed my first Oviraptor with an assortment of eggs like Dodo (tamed and quick egg production) and eggs I found laying around like Sarco, Stego, etc. It works as intended.

  39. That's only true if you're trying to get a perfect tame on everything you ever tame, no matter what level they are. The normal/standard (and dare I say, sensible) progression is to tame low/medium levels with meat/mutton/mejoberries, then use them to get eggs and harvest prime meat + other ingredients so that you can make kibble for when you want to perfect-tame high levels. No one needs kibble to tame anything Lvl 100 or less, that's just a waste of kibble unless you have a surplus and don't care about wasting it to save some time on the tames. Even for Lvl 100-120 the main benefit

  41. Oh c'mon. Stop doing that. These people are working really really hard on the game. And if it really matters if u have 2x or not then put 2x from the settings. Think about it, they work on gen 2, ark 2, ark: the animated series, ark 1 on bugs and probably keeping an eye on the community forums, so let them catch their breath.

  42. So what i did today? I discovered that with latest patch for PC PC Patch Notes: Client v321.1 - Server: v321.1 disabled dino tracking for currently not in taming process tames. With that we lost best function in game ever in my opinion. I posted it in general section as Did ve lost best function in game with last patch? And got message that my thread was moved. After search i got that my post is now in Workshop section moved by Joebl0w13 . So today i was probably Workshopping.
