  1. I am curious if there are going to be any major process changes behind the scenes for Ark 2 development and support? I loved Ark and have spent a good amount of time playing it with friends and my kids. I usually played private unofficial servers at first on Xbox One, but then I migrated to the Windows 10 version for better performance. I had to quit at the beginning of this year due to the frustration of frequent and large updates (many of which caused more issues), frequent game breaking bugs, and terrible update parity scheduling leaving me/us unable to connect to servers. I am legitima
  2. I would use these as early game sources for fiber and narco berries. Set them on wander and check in often. And then later for eggs as somebody else mentioned. I love Moschops for early game utility.
  3. Yes, I can confirm. I have an Xbox One X with external SSD and while it plays acceptably, it is not "smooth". Especially around busy areas and/or large builds. I made the mistake of trying Ark on my mediocre PC and now it's hard to go back to the Xbox version. I had no idea what I was missing all that time. Lol
  4. This is it. The devs used to engage in the conversation at least every once in a while. But they all got attacked and chased off. The official announcements, patch notes, and Community Crunch updates are still here though.
  5. It does not bring your inventory. All inventory is dropped in a bag when you transfer. And yes, you can put items/tames in the obelisk. You then must get to an obelisk or a loot drop to retrieve them.
  6. Sounds like you may possibly have some NAT issues. That's what I would investigate first.
  7. The dev team allotted to Ark seems pretty small and disorganized. Most of the team has been assigned to Atlas. Unfortunately, I don't think we should get our hopes up for anything in the manner of a major upgrade. Especially when they don't seem to be able to handle bugs existing for years. That being said, the new consoles will be a huge improvement by themselves. The difference between Ark on an Xbox One X and a moderate PC are pretty amazing. I had a hard time going back to console once I tried it.
  8. While it makes the official servers no fun to play, you have to consider the alpha tribes point of view. Why on Earth would they give smaller/new guys a chance to get built up and challenge their authority?
  9. I know it sucks to disconnect mid flight, but unfortunately it happens. As for all the rest, that is the game. You have to be careful and avoid rushing in to rescue a bag of items. Especially on a mountain side. I'm sure we've all experienced this very situation at least once. Rebuild and keep going! Game is a blast.
  10. I don't think any developer/company out there would want to bother purchasing this game and have to try and work within the existing codebase. Just look at how often patches are mishandled and tend to cause new bugs. Plus the obvious lack of communication and coordination in the current dev team. I can only imagine how fragile and scattered the code must look at this point. Regardless, the game is still a huge amount of fun. I think when you play for a long time it's easy to forget all the amazing things that Ark gets right. And yes, some of the bugs/issues are annoying and sometimes
  11. He's telling you how it is, not how it should be. That is sadly the current nature of official PVP. I agree that in this state official servers are a joke. That is why I choose to play elsewhere.
  12. I think the important thing to remember is you do not need the official PVP servers to play Ark. If you are not enjoying official servers then join or create unofficial servers. It is what it is. You are arriving late to a persistent online game where lots of people have already put in a lot of time and work. I got a lot of enjoyment out of this game by sticking to unofficial. I knew I didn't want to dedicate that much of my life to keeping afloat on official.
  13. The cave creature level should scale with your difficulty. If you changed the difficulty down after playing for a while, you might have higher levels creatures left over from when the difficulty was higher. I would suggest a wild dino wipe. You should see better results then.
  14. How do you "patch" aimbots? The answer is you cannot as it is software running parallel to the game. Your best bet is to report players and depend on server enforcement. And I would make sure it's aimbotting and not some super rifle as it sounds to be from your description.
