  1. I don't mind the downtime terribly much, however I do find the lack of communication disappointing.
  2. Servers Down? I only have a small handful of official servers listed as online in my list. Is this on my end or is something going on?
  3. Brontosaurus Ridiculousness Why the heck are there so many brontos on the Valguero map?
  4. I am surprised that people are really concerned with alpha predators as low level survivors. Honestly before you get a sword and some armor or a decent dino, anything that surprises you is going to kill you in seconds. Anything you build that isn't stone or metal is going to be destroyed quickly too, alpha or not
  5. Sure, if it's a low level one and he/she has about 500 arrows.
  6. Has nothing to due at all with the lag spike every time the server saves. What you are talking about is ping, which is the players' responsibility.
  7. Horrible ideas. I agree that the lag during server saves is very bad, but all of your ideas are terrible. The only one I support is official servers with a monthly subscriptions fee. Nerfing aspects of the game just because they don't impact you personally is a surefire way for your ideas to be ignored by the devs and raged upon by the players.
  8. I have only been playing ARK for about three weeks, so obviously that entire time has been with the decay timers turned off. I honestly can't think of a worse state for this type of game to be in; it is catastrophic. My first session was spent running around for 30 real time minutes just looking for somewhere to place my campfire due to all of the "too close to enemy foundation" messages. Everywhere I looked there was a player-made pillar. There were more pillars than trees in some areas. The entire coastline was either filled with an unfinished 1x2 thatch hut or claimed with a pillar. I started raging. I left negative feedback on Steam and almost asked for a refund (I wasnt aware of the decay timer at the time). I was disgusted, but I wanted to play so badly that I kept on. My first base was a ridiculously shaped group of boxes stacked on pillars due to the limited space bot claimed and the odd way the game calculated where I could build. Some spots were unavailable on the ground but could be built on via the second story. My base looked like a Dr. Seuss illustration. Then the heartbreak started set in when I started exploring. I found so many wonderful and beautiful places for a base. Places that inspired me to build intricate towers and balconies incorporating the landscape. I watched videos how to do expert structures. Alas there literally was no place for me to build. So I built a raft and started building this wonderful octogonal tower with balconies and pillars....until I hit the construction piece limit. I almost quit again. Here we are now and I am overjoyed. I am so excited for the decay timers being turned off and so many wonderful landscapes becoming available. I play on the official 404 server and my name is Fekth. Come play with me Saturday, Sunday or Monday 7pm to 7am central.
  9. Get the sand out of your crack and maybe people will stop calling you out.
  10. That is an entirely separate matter that new players are not responsible for. Wildcard is responsible for answering tickets, meanwhile their Steam rating has gone to crap and no new players are coming in.
  11. Yeah, those "damn kids winning"
  12. Look at the Steam reviews.Tons of new players bought the game, couldnt build anything and then left horrible feedback and quit. They need to turn that decay timer back on, it's ridiculous, especially for the new players that log in and think the game is just BS because they can't build.
  13. It's time to add decay back into the game. New players can't even put a bedroll down. Lots of brand new players quitting, getting refunds and leaving negative feedback on Steam.
