Bring back 25 man in General Discussion Posted July 10 On 7/8/2019 at 6:38 AM, covenantgrunt said: Classic is fine. It's just that hardcore pvpers or megatribe type players coming from officials can't handle it. Classic does not have ez mode Abberation farming, or unraidable cave bases. They can't handle farming with argies. They put in enormous amount of effort in trying to ape official style bases and tactics with Argy farming. Which obviously will drive anyone insane and people just start quitting after a while. And then when after 2 months of nolifing and grinding everything gets wiped in a day it just crush their little souls and they just quit instead of rebuilding. Meanwhile the bobs in their little turret bases or hidden outposts are prospering. Small tribes used to reality of ark being a dangerous, unforgiving world where you get wiped and have to rebuild. Most of them never had the ez mode conveniences like teleporters and transmitters that mega tribes take for granted. For tryhards moving stuff off server with drops or obelisks drive them nuts, for bobs it's just another day in ark. It is ironic but classic is a bobs paradise. Out of all the official modes this is the place to be for smaller tribes, even better than 6mans which is just tryhards trying to become YouTube stars or teaming to create defacto megatribes. On classic a lot of the toxic tryhards could not hack it anymore and quit and it's become the best environment for casual ark players. Keep classic going, megatribe players make a tiny portion of the playerbase. In their view there is only "bobs and roleplayers" on classic therefore it is dead. They just can't handle the idea that there is more to ark than their little cliques doing their infantile rivalry. Just because they are not active does not mean classic is dead. Ok you have peaked my interest. I just started playing small tribes about a month ago, and yeah it's no joke for a small tribe guy who plays maybe 12 hours a week to get ahead. I just take my lumps and keep on plugging. I'll have to check more into this mode and see what it has to offer!
