  1. I sure hope so! They are pretty worthless right now and it would make sense to start using them!
  2. ThAt's a great question, they didn't really talk about imprinting which of course is a big deal. If the babies still ask for all sorts of random kibble folks will still be taming different dinos. That being said, it could offer a unique opportunity for trading with other tribes on your server.
  3. I can, I remember just 3 of us on the Island one time going around and coming home with 5 hives so a huge tribe coming home with 20 in one night would be easy.
  4. Not on official, No flyers on Ab on Official servers. Mr Managers yes, Owls no.
  5. I'm in agreement and trust me, I'm all about this is a survival game. Last night I'm on my Owl and going to the spot at the very top, 0 lat, 43.5 long in order to get oil. Guess what folks? There is oil there for a reason, so you can harvest it! It's a decent spot too, one of the best on the map. Typically I fly from the snow region and I have a route I take and have never had issues with the screen going red, or insta-killing me. Last night I was at the Sunken Forest so decided to hit my favorite spot on the way home so basically coming to it from the opposite side of the map. Right around around 10 Lat, 34 Long it goes red. I try to turn away but instead I'm insta-killed. So your telling me that 0 Lat 43.5 Long is a legit safe spot on the map, but not 10 Lat 34 Long? That makes no sense folks and so I was screwed because of a wonky shaped map.
  6. Logged in to tame a few female dilos so we can tame an ank and a doed. Ended up grabbing a level 120 direwolf. Tried knocking it out with tranqs but it died, should have brought the owl. Flew to the north to checkout the oil deposits there. Saw a corrupted rex and Giga. Kited the Rex down the mountain. I think the Giga wandered off. Got some Oil and Obsidian, ran from a Corrupted Wyvern and logged for the night after taming 3 dilos. Funny how you login for a specific task and ADD sets in LOL.
  7. It's amazing that people are complaining about some dinos becoming pointless. If you tame a dino and it's only purpose is to sit on a ramp and lay eggs it's already pointless. This way people can tame what they like without feeling like they need a dino just for its eggs. Would you tame a Gali if you didn't need its eggs? Maybe? If so then great! If not then tame what you like and use its eggs for taming other creatures you like. I think this is great!
  8. Frustrating nothing about this anywhere. I created a new post about it and they moved it to oblivion LOL. I've noticed there aren't any supply crates on SE, on Rag, and on the Center. I can only assume this is also the case with the Island as well.
  9. Clearly a big issue I hope they fix soon. Tried to bola a moth and yep just went through it!
  10. Lots of advice, I'll echo Ariana above if you are interested in sticking with PVP, and in sticking with official. The PVP CrossArk servers are pretty chill and pretty low pop. I'm currently on PVP CrossArk12 and while I have had some troll issues it's mild compared to where you chose to start your playing time. Especially small tribe servers are tough because they are pretty new so pop is going to be much much higher over there...
  11. Ok so I'm a bit behind the times LOL
  12. If going solo just use an Archaeopteryx or Terror bird. Why raise a bunch of high end dinos when you can't bring any back with you???
  13. So I read your post and thought it was interesting and was ready to give my opinion and after reading all the comments I almost forgot what the original question actually was LOL. I had to go read it again... So to answer Your question, no trading, acting friendly, global chat, etc is not teaming. The teaming they are trying to prevent is multiple tribes acting as one tribe. This doesn't mean tribes don't have the right to be civil with each other and to even trade with each other. These are parts of Ark that give it real depth and keep it from being like all the other PVP games out there. PVP is possible, but it's not required. It allows folks to grasp at that idea of a Utopia that isn't forced on you like PVE but is possible if folks work together. I think people get confused with what the intent here is with the 6 tribe limit servers. They aren't trying to force eveyrone to be enemies! They are simply trying to limit the size of tribes. So if you do a boss battle with multiple tribes, attack another tribe with multiple tribes, then you are acting like 1 big tribe. Trading with someone doesn't make you part of their tribe right? It's actually a very untribe like action since you have to give something to get something, so don't look at it that way. With those thoughts out of the way ForzaProiettile made a very interesting point. This concept of keeping tribes from working together as a unit definately does work to the griefers/trolls advantage since I can see where folks don't think they are able to work with other tribes to eliminate a threat that needs to be dealt with. I'm not entirely sure what the answer here is in this scenario but I have to admit it's kinda fascinating.
  14. Ok so I have to respond! First off I don't believe this story of the Leeds were created for getting rid of raft spam, that's just garbage. For one thing most of the rafts I see are beached and not out in the open water anyways. 2nd, sorry but you're story of not being able to get around on rafts because of the Leeds is just totally inacurate. You bring up the Center and all the waterways and how the Leeds keep you from being able to use them. It's NOT TRUE!!! How do I know? A couple of months ago me and a bunch of friends decided to play on official again (shudder) and we chose the Center! We are currently playing on a CrossArk Server and our base is on an Island!!! We used rafts in the beginning, even made a little raft that we encased in metal so we could drive it over to Tropical Island South to park where we could trap and kill alpha rapters to help us level up. Did we have to be careful? Of course! But who cares? We have Rex's on our Island now, not sure if we used rafts to get them there or not but the point is the Leeds make things interesting out on the waters and I really hope they keep them there and don't nerf them like they do everything else!!
  15. It's these kinds of rants that bring me back to read them LOL. Please!!! Take this away!!! Please, make this game eaiser!!! Please!!! Keep me from dying all the time!!! It's awesome ?
  16. They remind me of when I was a kid and in the movies people would take a boat out into the dangerous sea, river, lake, etc. Not knowing what kind of evils lurk down there that might pop up and kill you is actually kinda awesome!
  17. Dude if you don't like the idea, don't play there. Why waste the time to post something that has no baring on your life? for that matter why am I responding to it? LOL
  18. So I'm not going to complain about the EVO event because I'm not a whining baby like some folks but I am a little confused by the 1.5 cooking effectivemess. Is cooking effectiveness and crafting the effectivemess the same thing? I've never heard of them being seperate before so hoping to get some clarity on this one.
  19. We are going with a Nitrado server as well but I'm not the admin so I haven't had to look for this info. I'll bet either SA Companion has something, or try emailing them directly and ask them for some insight.
  20. Yeah try it in single player, it's great! It's actually the first time I've ever taken the time to try a theory in single player first! It got to the point where it was pretty easy. Just fly in the small hole facing the beach and then move through there making sure there aren't any Wyvern. You can even land a few times first to make sure you have plenty of stamina. Once a Wyvern actually spotted me I'd fly back the way I came and then there's a little rock formation down on the beach with a small hole you can climb into where the Wyvern can't reach. It's about perfect :-)
  21. First I played for about 3 hours on single player to fine tune my route for gaining Wyvern eggs from the Scar on Rag. Took a bit but I think I've got it. Then jumped on my official server for about an hour and mustered together the materials to make an ascendant pteri saddle for maximum protection against wild Wyvern. Tonight I make my first live run into the Scar, wish me luck!
  22. Sorry if this has already been asked, but will there be an option in the near future to host your own Xbox Dedicated server on a Windows server? Or will it only be available through services like Nitrado.
  23. Let me see. I used my Therizino followed by my beaver to go out and farm wood, cutting down wood with the Therizino and transferring it to the beaver. Repeat until beaver is almost encumbered. Then I cooked the wood in the industrial grill to make charcoal, turned all that charcoal into gunpowder for bullets. Yep that's pretty much all I did last night other than install the 2GB update.
  24. Actually a good tip. Keep something like seeds in your last hot box. That's where the Pego always steals from.
