    ... blue obelisk and put everything in but there was only 50 slots in tribute so I tried to put everything in the other tabs ...

    Gues you used organic poly or so? That is only 20 per slot so you need to replace some with hard poly comes in stacks of 100.
    Be carefull with crafting with full slot cap never tested that in obelisk but had issues with that in argies and fabricators.

  2. If only reporting worked better it would be an improvement. One of our allies tried to report a cheater/griefer but the link to create a ticket did not work from his phone. Also, why they do not accept screenshots in PM on consoles? The extra work would pay off in goodwill and trust.

    The company policies and merrits need to be improved, the general tendency is little trust in future projects if things not change.

  3. The random beach bob will be happy to talk, hoping for gifts or advice.

    In PvE people running away and not communicating are offten trolling or scouting. Griffins or shadowmanes seem the dino of choice for them. If they start dumping glowsticks everywhere better get into bed and log off, this is believed to cause bluescreen so they can drag and drown you. Tribeless higher levels named "Human" are a big red flag as well.
    Another thing is stealing eggs. Now we have incubators it is less of a problem but before that trolls could realy mess up your hatchery by just taking all eggs and simply eat them if they were overweight.

    This has nothing to do with PvP, the decay timers are basic game mechanics that affect PvE also. It's silly to have wiring decay days sooner than the equipment it's connected too. Wiring is basically a metal tier technology and it should last as long as other metal tier objects.


    please read my first comment again:

    I absolutely agree with the decay system being a bit random and is not encuraging nice builds

    I do agree that the decay timers are random and only press people to build ugly.

    The thing I was talking about in the rest of my comments was the presumed insta kill of podded dino's when a fridge was unpowered and that is a thing that is not correct. Also, that is something I can't see as "Trolling" from WC as stated in the title but as part of PvP tactics.

    The OP is raising a valid issue, WC has made some truly boneheaded decisions with their decay timers.

    Don't get me wrong, the workarounds you're suggesting are smart, those are the things that players have to do in order to protect themselves from WC's bad decisions, but no matter how smart your suggestions are they don't change the fact that the OP has a valid complaint and that WC has hosed the player base with their stupid decay decisions.

    It is not a smart workaround, it is just how it works: Fridge unpowered is NOT insta kill podded dino's.

    I'm not the first to "defend" WC but in this case I can totaly see why it makes sense and that is PvP: Target oppo's power to kill his defenses, including the dino's. The smart workarounds there are double wire's, auto start generators, batteries

    BTW- Cryo fridge last 40 days, but electrical wires disappear and kill everything at 8 days!

    I absolutely agree with the decay system being a bit random and is not encuraging nice builds but that last bit is not how it works.
    True, after 8 days there will be no more wires but no one stops you to re-wire them. As long as you do not acces the inventory your pods will be alive as soon as you powered the fridge up again. Another thing is the upgrade to a tek generator, these don't need wires.

    Just keep in mind to never open an unpowered cryofridge

    Whoops, yeah I made a mistake in my thinking about the dates.

    Early Access began: June 2, 2015

    Early Access ended: August 2017

    Wait what? Think you made a typo: EA ends in 2027.

    Also it seems the pvp community agrees that the most fun you can have in Ark is when the new maps come out. Lost island was so much fun it was crazy. But it's ruined now that transfers are open. Fjord or w/e it's called will be very fun for the first few months as well.

    Not just PvP, a lot of people on the PvP servers had a real good time there building up their tribes to get their first OWN bossfight.
    Now the servers are turning into just a copy/paste version of all the others with big boxes full of "top stats", fully lagged out.

    Unlimitted transferes are not good for the gameplay.

    My drake that's normally 25% , imprinted at 100% instead on 2x so i think they did try to adjust for that.  IS there a dino that raises in only 16hrs?  That's the only dino I'd think won't work out.

    Yes, that is how I explained my thoughts in that other thread ;)
    As far as I can think of there were only the bat and the little monkey in the dangerzone. Not a big issue, just kind of annoying there was no response if this would be an issue or not.

    It's been evo event weekend and imprints have been fine on official for me. Been easy to hit imprints even with baby boon up too. 

    Most creatures do not have issues with the interval. Only the Mesopithecus and Onyc are normaly getting 3 imprints but now only 1 and therefor on risk missing 1/3rd imprint unless the first is 100%.

    Well he certainly wasn't talking about the EVO event. So he's either on unofficial or official Gen 2. There's nothing else that could do what he claimed.

    Ehm... Obvious???

    And now stop beating about the bush: DILO are they doing?

    I think he was originally referencing someone activating the "Baby Boon" effect on Genesis 2 by playing the missions.

    I don't know about that but it is happening everywhere right now on official.
    First they start the event with only harvest/xp/tame and after 45 minutes they do the rest but forgot the imprint.
    New intern in charge of Evo or so?

    So some bone head increased the speed dinos grow at n didn't think about imprinting, what joke I've now got 6 useless dinos, well done guys n gals. 

    Are you a fortuneteller? It did actualy happen now LOL

  14. It is nice to see we have an Evo event but if maturing and imprint is 2x but the timer is normal we have a few dino's we can't breed with 100% imprint!
    Please correct the imprint boost accordingly.

    Anyone had dinos not appear in pods after podding them after the update? love losing dinos for no reason lol (official pve xbox)

    Yup, our baby otter did not stay in it's pod during the update. Sad story..,.

    They may not be able to do that. Sony and Microsoft control how things are released.

    Those are big boys that know how things work in IT. As I said in another comment, doing mayor maintenance that is causing downtime they pretty well know it should be done in the middle of the night when the servers are least used.
    These companies are very good to implement regional times when it comes to big releases in their own store.

    If no one adresses the issue things will never improve. Try to find a solution instead of excuses.

    Peak times still ain't really a thing even then. Time zones play a role. The US immediately comes to mind. I'm on the east coast and my game updated at about 1 pm, if two of the American friends I frequently play ark with did theirs at the same moment I did then that means that my friend living in the Midwest had his game updating at 12pm while my friend in the west coast did it at 10am. If I jump on at 10pm, they're on at 9pm and 7pm respectively.

    At least if you pick YOUR 5am on a weekday, most of your normal friends would not be playing. You can never rule all issues out but you have to admit that it will improve the situation for MOST people if server maintenance is done very early morning LOCAL server time.
    If you however choose to play on a server way outside your own timezone you have to keep in mind that is your own choice and not something the rest of the world should be adjusted for.
    Having updates done outside regular office hours is a very common practice to avoid issues for the mayority of users.

    That does show peak times, just for the Steam players. However, these days, the console player base is larger. There isn’t a quick and easy website to show those statistics though. Simply said, no matter when you make changes, many players are going to be inconvenienced. 


    In that case I refere to the first part of my reaction: Servers have a region, adjust update times to the region.
