  1. ForzaProiettile I bet you'd know the answer to this one.  If you raid a base with the idea of being secretive and you are killed it'll show up in the tribe log with your current tribe name.  Now if you changed your tribe name once the raid is over, which tribe name will show up in their tribe log the next day?

    Throw a couple dozen velos in boxes and cause em to crash too :) 

    Wait, in boxes? Please explain 🙂I love Velos for added base defense, but not sure what you mean by the in boxes part.

  3. Good example.  We just raided a base last night and they had species X and turrets.  Once we drained the turrets we still had to contend with the Species X.  Were we successful, sure but we also ended up making a couple of mistakes as mentioned above and we were killed by a couple of dinos when we were trying to avoid the Species x.  This means that we are now in the tribe log as raiders instead of unknown.  Now if the tribe has allies who are willing to help them they could come after us since they know who we are.  This is just another example where species X are cerrtainly not worthless.

    I often do this for fun. Ive killed a 130 alpha rex but it almost killed me a few times (hp brews + extra flak). I had an insane sword though, like.. christmas event bp + crafting bonus so roughly 600% damage on it

    Oh wow, yeah the Alpha Rex's can be tough if nothing else because of the knock back!  Raptors and Carnos though no problem.

  5. I tamed a Velo last night and when I went to the terminal there was a countdown timer before it'd let me upload it into the terminal which is normal.  once that timer hit zero I'd click on it to transfer and it'd give me the warning "are you sure you want to do this? It might delete your dino" Or something close to that. I'd click accept and then nothing would happen.  I did this multiple times and finally had to give up and get a cryopod from a friend.  I'm not new to Ark and have transferred my birds many times so this appears to be a bug.

  6. Since the introduction of the CryoPod the 12 hour delay for transferring dino's is now completely antiquated, so what's the point?  Please remove the 12 hour restriction on dino's that are being transferred the old fashioned way.  Not only that alot of the time the transfer is broken anyways.  I tried transferring a Velo I'd just tamed last night and after the 15 minute timer on the terminal it still wouldn't let me add him to the OB.  It was very frustrating and with Cryo it's really not necessary anymore anyways.

    It wasnt even easy to tame in the first place, given its ai. Plus you have to place the gate frame carefully so it cant even jump out.

    We actually I built a pretty great trap for taming them so I have to agree with others they were very easy tames.  I haven't actually used one since the nerf, but I'd imagine if you crank stam into them and weight they'd be pretty amazing transports now instead of just used for PVP.

    The thing is, we were all fairly new to ark, and that's what gave the game magic. Ark is a nostalgic game, not just for the funny moments with friends but for being new. Games are always better when your a noob.

    You are so right, this game was the best when I was a noob but it's still pretty great 🙂.  All my friends used to play, even my 2 sons used to play, but now it's back to just me.  I was recently wiped by the Alpha on our cluster for no reason really and yet I still play.  It was nice though getting that break when they wiped me.  Gave me a chance to try something else besides Ark for a change.  Now of course I'm back at it. I guess I never learn LOL

    it all  comes down to WC's biggest flaw. COMMUNICATE! They need to come on here and tell people what's going on. Everyone wants this or that? Tell them:

    "No, we don't have time to work on that right now because all of our resources are being used to fix the meshing issue because it's destroying the game. We'll give you more TLC's and DLC's once we've ironed out this gaping hole in our program."


    Without communicating what's going on then we're left in the dark to assume they're not working on the issue. It would be nice to be able to have the positivity to assume they ARE working on it; but we've been shown time and time again that it's not a priority. They'd rather work on adding more things that destroy the game like climbing picks to make meshing easier or managamrs to completely break PVP; than going back to their roots and fixing things. We still have issues such as baby dinos being born stuck in the mesh; and losing characters that have persisted since day 1 of early access.

    I don't think you guys are paying attention.  For the past few weeks WC has really stepped up their game in both the communications dept as well as in working on counters to meshing.  I think you guys need to start reading the community crunches...

  10. Or you could just try your luck on Rag and Center where they are much easier to get.  On Rag in Viking bay there are tons as well as other spots in the south.  On Center Mosa's are really too common and easy to find Alphas.

    The other option is to go to Extinction and find yourself a black pearl Gacha.

    So I don't know if it was Thanos or the rollback, however this past week I lost my level 101 character with many tek engrams unlocked.  This is crippling for multiple reasons in my tribe.  How long until Wildcard will respond normally to this type of ticket so I can turn back time on my vanquished character...or force level my new one?

    I'm sure you put in a ticket already correct?  I'd give them 4 or 5 days and I'd imagine they'll get back to you in that timeframe.  I know alot of folks lost characters in that last update so I'm sure they are still working through those so it will probably take a bit.  I'd recommend power leveing your other character which will be best for you in the long run anyways.  It's always nice to have 2 good high level characters IMO.

    Hi all, im new in these forums... i don't know if this is the right part to talk about this but the thing is, that im getting an error called Lowfatalerror or something like that. Pretty much what happens is i start the game and it just crashes when im on the loading menu or a few seconds after im in the game. I tried verifiying the files and it said that there were two files missing and they will be reaquired... i started the game again and it happen the same thing, and this was after the new patch came out, before that it was good. Any help? :( i tried so many things... don't know what else to do.

    I'd open a ticket with WC and also post in the bugs forum.  Good luck!

  13. Go to Extinction and get yourself some Owls.  Super fast tames and they are awesome for scouting and also very helpful in taming with their healing ability.  For getting Wyvern Eggs I highly recommend you get yourself some Griffins from Rag as well.  You can't breed Griffins, but they are fast and fairly tanky so good for getting eggs in the Skar.

    I wish there was a way to turn building damage way down (maybe 6x or 10x), but keep damage to doors vanilla. I think it'd be a neat experiment to see how raid styles change.

    I agree that would be interesting.  Folks would certainly make sure the front door was where they kept all their defenses for sure.

    These kinds of stories are why I run my own unofficial 6 map cluster.  PVE/PVP, offline damage turned off and damage to buildings/etc turned way, way down.

    To each his own, I guess, but if I had to play this way, I believe I'd hit another game.  Great deal that WildCard made this game with unofficial and options to set it up as the server owner sees fit.

    I'm a fan of turning building damage down, but addiing offline protection as well? That's going a bit too far IMO. Might as well play PVE.

  16. They do need to fix the models for the Owl.  I hate that you can't dismount from one in a 2x building but need it to be 3x. They should make the model act more like the Argie for sure.

    Is any one else annoyed at how hard it is to get snow owl eggs. Would prefer owl to get same hit box as the argentavis.


    Unless they've changed them, I've found that Snow Owls lay eggs more frequently than Argies.

    So I will start this off with the obvious, I am very new to the game. I had Ark for a long time but only recently got to start playing because I finally have a PC that can handle it.

    I play on an unofficial server with friends PVP but for the most part its just casual skirmishes no complete destruction.

    I am currently the first one on the server to obtain high level Rexs (86 and 195 post tame with no levels) the next highest on the server is a level 14.

    Both Rexs are COMPLETELY AVERAGE in every possible way aside from color - in this regard they are FABULOUS!

    I just need to know if it is worth it to attempt to breed these two Rexs or if I should just wait until I find something with more points in better stats.


    If you have any questions feel free to let me know - I apologize for anything I might be missing here - again - super new, don't know a lot about breeding. Anything helps!

    Thank you! 

    Great question!  I'd assume your server has standard levels up to level 150 correct?  So alot of folks would say don't breed them with good reasons, but I'd say it depends on what you want to use them for.  If you are thinking you'd just like some nice looking Rex's around to go around and maybe do meat and hide runs and you'd like the experience with breeding then why not?  If you are thinking you'd like to use them for Boss fights then no.  If it was me I'd consider finding an opposite gender for the 195 in order to try and keep the color but also start working on a stronger Rex for fighting bosses and ditch the 86 all together.
