    I will never understand people who play this game solely to prey on people’s bases with such brutality. I at least try to be fair because i understand the tremendous effort enemies put into it. But i guess it’s ok as long as you’re not cheating 

    Maybe if everything took a LOT less time (10 real life days for a dino FFS) it would be better..but as of right now, there’s literally no reason NOT to be a raider. 

    This game could have been so much more fun but because of the insane grind, most raids result in people leaving. Or they just become a nothing-to-lose raider like me.

    I had the big base and everything all made by me, even you couldn’t raid me with “unlimited” explosives because the full turrets simply wouldn’t let you get close. But then a mesh cheater had to ruin it all, now here i am raiding noobs because i’m tired of being mr. nice guy. 

    Maybe it’s personalities but i just don’t feel excited when i raid people, if anything it makes me sad to see everything wasted and i probably made them leave Ark overall. 



    Funny this sounds like me right now, minus the sad part maybe LOL.  I havne't don't alot of raids yet though tbh, but the ones I have raided I actually feel deserved it. Think about it, they choose PVP but then build a base on the beach or near a popular spot on the map with basically no defenses?  To me that's just asking to be raided and it can only help them by abligiing.

  2. Sad to say I don't really have a good story by your merits, but I'll tell mine anyways 🙂.  I've been playing Ark since almost the beginning on Xbox.  When I was first introduced to the game by my brother I was amazed that something like this exists and I really hadn't even scratched the surface of what Ark is.  My brother, myself, my son, and some good friends thought this game looked amazing and wanted to play together.  Back in the beginning this dream proved impossible because every PVP server was packed at the 70 max or at the least around 68 or 69.  We wanted to play together so bad so we decided to buy a spare Xbox and set it up as a dedicated server.  Back at that time the idea of admin griefiing never even crossed our minds.  Our thought was let's setup a server, and advertise to get some folks to come play with us!  We setup our base on Herb Island and some other big tribes setup elsewhere on the Island.  It was fun, but I discovered that I'm just more of a solo player so I set off on my own.  Another tribe in the area eventually found my base and would stop by to say hi.  These guys seemed nice, but they were definitely more ruthless than they appeared.  One day they stopped at my base while I was there and started attemting to break down my door with a hatchet.  I didn't realize at the time how hard that is to do LOL.  I was scared in the little hut not sure what to do!  Eventually they gave up, but came back later and blew into my base and took everything I had.  Later they just started being more and more agressive, picking me off my pteri's and just basically griefing me.  I reached out to my old tribe the admins and asked for help.  They had a bunch of rockets, C4, etc just waiting to be used so I joined up with them and visited this griefing tribes base while they were offline and killed and destroyed everything.  We were admin of course, but the idea of spawning things in or using admin commands never even occured to us so the wiping was completely legit.  Let's just say these guys were sooooo salty!  They'd message my brother calling him names and were just not good sports about it at all.  Needless to say my brother blocked them from returning to the server, and this was pretty much the moment that our server started to disolve and was eventally decomissioned.  It was crazy and fun though while it lasted!

    Nah, I was just looking on the kibble pages perusing coincidentally as this thread came up.


    If it's on those 2 areas (Patch notes and wiki) I'd hazard a guess they do work.  Would seem to be a bit wasteful though of the more 'difficult' kibbles though...

    I don't disagree except in my situation where space is a luxury.  I'd rather give up a few owl eggs for kibble to tame a pteri instead of trying to make room for say a bunch of scorpions 🙂

    ThePrybar I am a solo player and only build metal bases with turrets in good locations its nothing about not being good AT all. I Have No one to help me i dont come online to more done than when i went off. mathematically your an idiot for working out that if i cant beat 3 plus players at once with just pvp equipment im not a good player 

    Theprybar love how you insult when some people have been playing the game for years longer than others I do MMA and get Gal FAM i dont need to be grinding all day go find a Gal not a new game lol not that im complaining more for me.  Theprybar i have some freinds who are good if you wanna meet them instead lol real offer Fyi 

    Melcreif i get your point mate but it hard doing this solo when im getting grieved daily. i set up 6 turrets and double layered walls in 2 days third day base is gone Ive tried hidden locations dangerous ones does not seem to matter i have to do everything my self so is time consuming. no one to show me where and what things are every time i recruit i get inside im not the toxic ones 


    I think the turrets are part of your problem tbh.  When I create a base I start super small and hidden and typically just build in stone.  I'll use that small hidden base to start building up.  It's also ok IMO to start making grenades right away and take away from the other Bobs who need to learn not to build on the beach LOL.  If you don't do it someone else will anyways and the resources you get from them are helpful.  If this kind of strategy won't work for your current location then I'd just recommend moving to a different server and trying it there instead.  Believe me  I'm doing this right now actually and my base hasn't been found for about 3 weeks so I know it works.

    Official is Dead because no one can get anywhere  the Day one Crews have us growing like corn and are waiting just long enough for a good yield. There are players who have not taken their own wyverns eggs and raised them and just been given them so they just troll because they didn't have to do that grind and kill passive dinos of tribes of no threat because they dont appreciate the effort taken. fair enough war of attrition with potential threats but not this 

    I get it, being griefed stucks!  Still, just gotta do a better job of hiding and plan how to respond.  I was recently wiped by the Alpha on my cluster for no good reason so I took a couple of weeks off to play some Division 2 and now I'm back with plans of doing things differently this time!  It's fun to start over IMO and it's also fun to think of ways to play differently than you did last time.  Instead of all that grinding for example a friend and I raided a few small bases and let someone else grind out our gear 😎.  Not the way I would  have done things before because I've been that guy who's been raided and it sucked.  But also if you think about it we're doing them a favor!  You wanna build a little stone/wood base and place it out in the open with no defenses aren't you just asking for someone to raid you? LOL

    When a car manufacture makes a faulty product in which causes accidents, what happens? How many computer companies make devices which loose their data? 

    That being said, I understand where your coming from, but they don't even try to fix half the problems with the game until people complain. They also ignore some problems completely which are easily fixable. Look at my last few posts and what happened to me. They won't even acknowledge me....what other major company acts in such a manner. Its unprofessional, and its inexcusable at this point. If they were hard at work trying to fix the product and all these issues it would at-least in my opinion be understandable. However, the same issues have been present for years and the the support is terrible. What other major company takes weeks to months to reply to a customer....and thats even if they "choose" to reply. This is also a company with money, and not a company which recently got into the business. They are now owed by snail games, which has more than enough funds to be able implement fixes and have a proper support staff. Once again, they choose not to...I don't believe the game is unfixable, but I am no expert. If it can't be fixed, then at the very least make sure all items/tames that are lost due to the games "flaws" are replaced, and have enough staff to make this possible so everyone can be compensated. 

    They knew about all these issue, but instead of fixing them, they went ahead and just released more DLC to profit from and not care about the consumer. Please remember the  sheer amount of time this game requires. The could have made sure the new dlc maps didn't have theses issues, but it was just simpler to pump out new DLC without the changes needed. They don't care about us, and it's evident. So I don't think a "thank you" is appropriate to those who took advantage of us. Though, this is solely my opinion. 

    Dude, I think you need a vacation

    Run up to turrets with a rocket launcher hoping to get a rocket off and destroy a turret before you die. Repeat.

    ah, don't know how that'd work if the turrets are up high. Of course I guess same strategy as C4 bombers running up to the base and attaching and exploding C4 on the wall to get in.

    I'm trying to tame an oviraptor but I'm in trouble, every time I end up killing him, someone has a tip to not kill him

    What are you using?  Typically a low level CB works just fine I never have issues killing them and it just takes a few arrows.

  9. Just to add there are a few others can't tame with cross bow. Gall hard and Dire bear not at all. Others like giga where cross bow better coz faster reload and less chance to kill it.
    Unless you have an owl which changes the whole dynamic
