Since the developers have absolutely no idea whats happening on these beginner servers let me break it down for you. It makes new players think that it is an impossibly difficult game.
The level cap on players preventing you from taming anything decent combined with the level cap of dinos makes for an absolute disaster for anyone making a 10 meter stroll from their base. Alpha raptors are gods here and nothing these beginners tame will stand any chance(which wouldnt be terrible but they are EVERYWHERE).
Taking to the skies on a ptera? With that 300 stamina be careful where you land, it attracts one or two tiny BUGS and that ptera is now dead.
Beginners love rafts, nearly everyone uses them.. but SORRY because leedsichys cover ever square inch of the ocean on the island.
Play on xbox and want to upload your beginner tames before the server gets wiped? Too bad we shut down uploads to stop duping.. OH WAIT YOU CANT DUPE ON THESE SERVERS ANYWAYS HAHA WILDCARD STRIKES AGAIN
