  1. Too late. This game was already "killed" by a hundred other things people whined about. None of us actually play anymore, we just hang out on the forum because it's such a fun community.
  2. I made no judgements about bobs. Problem: Manas are unfair to bobs Factors: Manas and bobs Scenario 1: Remove/nerf manas. Bobs continue to get pummeled, by weaker manas or some other dino. Scenario 2: Remove bobs (aka people stop making themselves easy targets). Problem solved.
  3. Manas aren't the problem. Bobs are the problem. Remove manas from the game, and the bob will just get eaten by the next most powerful dino. Eventually, they're complaining about being knocked unconscious by a pachy. Remove bobs from the game, and consider it problem solved.
  4. I take everything that isn't nailed down, decay or no decay. If they wanted to keep it bad enough, they should have tried harder.
  5. Counterpoint: we need to get rid of the stupid holiday events once and for all. I've always hated them and would be happy to see them abolished.
  6. This. For most of my dinos, if I'm not sitting on them, they're in the cryo freezer.
  7. I prefer plesio harvesting with a basilo. I can move around a lot faster/easier than on dry land with a giga.
  8. On the flip side: -Can ride other creatures -Can wear multiple pieces of Asc. armor -Can use weapons -Can command other creatures Imagine a Giga with an Asc shotty wearing full Asc flak riding a wyvern and whistling a Rex army to Attack This Target...
  9. I was on board until you brought the compy into it. I consider 75% of the dinos in the game to be a waste of effort but the compy ain't on that list.
  10. Flyer nerf was my second least favorite change to the game behind the leeds. I was almost upset enough to start a forum thread about it, but not quite.
  11. How'd they park next to your base without being shredded by all the turrets? Oh, you don't have turrets? Sounds like a small new base, easy to just move to a new spot.
  12. Don't give up yet! We have a good exchange of ideas going here. I'm not saying build in a different location. I'm saying build a different base. Know what meshers find when they pop up into my ground-floor rooms? Walls lined with turrets and a small horde of dimos or compys. You can't stop meshing as a tactic, but you can stop it from being an effective one.
  13. If every post you've made is met with bitterness, maybe it's your posts which are the problem. I understand your frustration over your virtual toys not always working right. Unfortunately, you seem to be under the impression that software developer's primary concern is making a perfect game. Investors and the board of directors don't care, probably don't even know, about meshing or shadow distancing or anything else. The average life cycle of a video game has been surpassed in this case, Ark is past its peak. You could fix every glitch in the game tonight and it wouldn't result in a su
  14. Sorry if it annoys you, but such is reality. By all means, feel free to approach businesses worldwide with your ground-breaking idea of asking customers to donate money to address issues which don't make economic sense to address in the first place. They'll be kicking themselves for not thinking of it first. And to think, it all started with someone annoyed about glitches in a video game.
  15. Fixing bugs requires software developers. Software developers have this annoying habit of expecting paychecks so they can feed their families. Banks have this annoying habit of expecting your company to deposit funds equal to or greater than your payroll costs. Players have this annoying habit of only buying the game once. Could they fix it? Probably. Is it worth it, based on the projected ROI? Nopers.
  16. I like to think this is an attempt at a large-scale inside job. Insiding the alpha tribe is nothing compared to insiding an entire server. It'd be pretty fun to ban everyone and then just go around looting all the bases.
  17. Never. The game was developed as a PC game, they just shoehorned consoles in to squeeze out some extra cash. Y'all will always be step-children.
  18. Nonsense. I only play solo and always pick the most heavily populated PvP servers I can possibly find, preferably with several hostile "alphas". I get by just fine, haven't been successfully raided in probably 18 months.
  19. Life is so unfair. None of the people who know exactly what needs to be done to deliver a perfect game ever actually work for the game companies.
  20. You as the leader and no one else in the tribe. I got 99 problems and tribemates ain't one.
  21. No need for name-calling, I'm not the one who took all your stuff. By all means, go inside an established tribe and then come back and tell us how easy it was.
  22. Insiding is awesome. It's a very effective tactic which requires a much different skillset than simple combat or raiding. I'm a big fan and very happy that it's a part of the game. Kudos to the enterprising folks who pull it off successfully.
  23. And for every player who ponied up the fee, another would stop playing because they don't like Ark enough to pay for it. Now there are fewer players on your servers paying the bills. Now people are leaving because there's less population. Servers still need to be maintained to satisfy the players who are left, time to raise fees to cover those costs. Now those folks don't want to pay twice as much to play, so down go the servers. But hey, the game was glitch-proof for 90 days.
  24. Fair enough. What kind of solution would you suggest? A team of people to sink thousands of hours into making everything work perfectly? Gonna cost money. You prepared to start paying a monthly sub fee? May as well run your own server if you have to pay, right? The only other option would be to offline the servers. The thunder from the players would echo through these corridors like the gusts of a thousand winds. Seems like the option that doesn't cost the players any money and doesn't cost the company a bunch of customers is the option we have now. Almost like a compromis
