What's the deal with Ark now? When I played back in the day, you could have a good time, you didn't rubber-band and bounce all over. The servers didn't crash regularly. The support was frankly a lot better.
You can play other games with smaller teams and get more assistance when you place a ticket. I've had a ticket with Wildcard open for weeks, and to be honest, judging by most of the posts on these forums its a similar story.
Official is frankly just unplayable. I am not sure how literally freezing in place every 5 minutes is an acceptable form of gameplay.
Does anyone actually pay attention to what devs say? I know awhile back they changed the server save to every 15 minutes or something... but by god ... the lag that we experience that often is abominable.
A great game... riddled by terrible developers, zero support, and frankly horrid performance.
It's a shame people still support them when they don't care... I wish another company would buy them and fix it.
