  1. Well by the time the server came back the presents had despawned. 1-2 lucky people managed to grab some before they vanished.
  2. And the surprise is my server crashes (and is still down) before the event even starts. >_> Lovely. (NA PVE 338). Forget presents, hopefully me and my best argy is still alive when I get back on
  3. See that would actually make sense. Raptor Claus as it exists just makes people hate the other players on their server because it's always a few greedy jerks using manas or skiffs to steal the drops from people who got there first and/or were waiting on the ground. Heck the first night of the event one of them got under me with his mana and jumped into the air so I'd fall to my death. Adding holiday loot items (even at a reduced rate) to normal drops during the event would make things more fair so everyone could have a chance to get something other than frustration.
  4. Heck, I have wyverns and tropeos and I haven't gotten a single one. At least three drops I've been on the ground the only person waiting for a solid two minutes (the rate those things fall are ridiculously slow) just to have a Chinese player (you can tell because their character and tribe name are are in blocks because it can't translate the kanji) swoop in on a mana and steal it. Even waiting until 3am doesn't help because the Asian players are on then. Heck the first drop I went for I got killed by an Asian player on a mana (pve server) because he got right under me with his mana and jumped
  5. Fear evolved....the stuff you need to unlock the holiday skins are ground spawns. Thanksgiving event....you get the wishbones from killing turkeys. Valentine's event....you get the boxes of chocolates from breeding your dinos. Christmas.....you learn to hate every other player on your server because a bunch of greedy jerks don't believe in sharing and think they deserve it all. >_> Can you at least add coal and mistletoe to the loot tables of regular supply drops or add a ground spawn system so people who just want to unlock the holiday skins can?
  6. Or heck, just add a chance for normal drops to have holiday items so those of us with slow reaction times/computer/etc have a chance to at least unlock the holiday skins. We have people on manas stealing every single drop no matter who was there waiting first. This is my least favorite ark event for this reason. It's making me hate humanity and other players more than I usually do.
  7. Yeah this is my least favorite Ark event due to toxic players ignoring anyone actually waiting (or got there first) for a present to land and stealing it. Worse, one of the block blocks (the tribes that just have asian characters in their names) deliberately jumped into the air with his mana so I'd fall to my death. You'd think WC would at least add a small chance for the coal/mistletoe to drop in regular supply crates so we could at least have a chance to get the holiday skins without selfish jerks ruining it
  8. That was honestly my one quibble...that if they felt the need to have Helena be gay/bi that means either they're only planning on covering the island timeline and not the other maps, or else maybe they're going to write Diana out and instead they're planning on covering the other maps (or the entire pre-genesis timeline) but to make things more simple they're going to pair Helena and Mei instead (not that I'd mind since a large chunk of the island story was their unconventional friendship anyway).
  9. Oh please. Mei Yin over the course of the notes fell in love with Diana, so it's not like the story hasn't had non-straight people. Also...having read all the explorer notes, I don't recall a SINGLE reference in Helena's notes indicating what her romantic preference was, so since she's WC's character, they're the ones who get to choose that for her. Also, the synopsis mentions 'after tragedy' she wakes up on the island, so it's very possible her mother and wife (like Mei Yin's brother) are only ever seen in flashbacks and die. Since she IS alone on the Island.
  10. The story has always been present in explorer notes. Do a lot of people just take the XP buff and just not read them? The first 'npc' we got was the HLNA robot in genesis 1. But they're specifically referring to Vin's character Santiago as 'the hero protagonist' while still saying it's going to be a multiplayer sandbox game like Ark currently is...so I'm assuming Ark 2 will have him as an actual character we somehow interact with?
  11. I wish they'd give us a clear timeline as it relates to the original survivors (and our own character). I assumed Ark 2 starts some time after the colony ship Rockwell is trying to take over in Genesis 2 lands (or crashes?) on a new planet (hence the control room they go into in the trailer and the stone that shows the HLNA robot on it). There's also the issue that Santiago was killed (or just presumed dead? I didn't fully play through extinction) in Extinction so is there confirmation that this is original Santiago and he either didn't actually die, or was he brought back (or is a new clone o
  12. 'hero protagonist'.....so does this mean we have to PLAY as him? Or is he just an NPC we interact with? Also...is this original Santiago (as in died in Extinction), because I've spent the past ten minutes arguing with a player on my server who says Ark 2 is somehow a prequel when I figured it would be obvious it would be happening post Genesis 2. >_>:
  13. By story-based I meant 'this game has a pre-set protagonist, you play through a linear story'....not the lore. I love the lore of Ark (which is why I've played it over three years, bugs and all). I was super-hyped by the trailer (and especially the animated series one, that one actually made me 'squee' I'm not going to lie. I think I just had a moment of panic when I saw a reactor on youtube imply you'd be playing as Santiago. If the new game has the story front and center (instead of just via explorer notes like the first few maps), I'm sold. As long as I can still breed my dodos in peace ^_
  14. So is this purely a story-based game and not multiplayer? I'd be more excited if I had more details about the actual game. Bugs and all I like Ark because I can make my own character, no offense but I don't want to play Santiago.
