  1. My admin wouldn't hassle you about your dinos. PM me if you want the details.
  2. Get rid of breeding and all dinos but parasaurs, and there's going to be that tribe that tames more high-level parasaurs than every one else. Make all parasaurs the same level and cap their numbers, there's going to be that tribe who respecs crafting and makes better saddles. Get rid of high-quality saddles and there's going to be that tribe who brings more players. Cap tribe size, and there's going to be that tribe who treats Ark like war instead of a game and shows no mercy. Give everyone the same dinos, the same saddles, the same point of view, and then we'll all be on equal footing (as we leave the game en masse).
  3. I voted no, but take it with a grain of salt. I'd prefer to see platform saddles removed altogether.
  4. Why does it matter? I can't think of a reason why this would have any impact on gameplay.
  5. Another good solution is to just grind gunpowder for a day and buy a quetzal. If anyone on your server is breeding them you'll probably get a much better bird anyway. Plus, most tribes/players don't need much more than 1-2 quetzs, good chance they have extras.
  6. Might take some practice, but once I figured out the solo grappling hook/argy method, quetz became one of the simplest tames. Considering no other dinos will mess with you that high in the air (unless you're taming over the wyvern trench or something), you really only need to worry about where the quetz is going to land and what else is down there.
  7. I'd estimate the value of the stuff I've been given by other players vs. the stuff I've had destroyed is about 100 to 1. Everyone loves to gripe about the "toxic community", but most players I've encountered are actually pretty generous with advice and stuff.
  8. How about the map just gets divided up into areas, each PvE player gets one area and no one else can even enter that space? How about letting PvE players just place metal nodes or drops in their own bases so they don't have to go anywhere dangerous? How about every PvE player gets their own personal GM to follow them around and take care of every problem for them?
  9. Posing as a foreign player is a great strategy, especially when you're incognito on your home server. Folks are so wound up about the chinese and block names, they never suspect the English-speaker from down the road is actually the one who smashed their base and took all their loot. Thumbs up to this thread for making that a little easier.
  10. Absolutely, flat out wrong. Players can choose their own destiny in either mode. The only difference is that PvP players do so while people are trying to kill us, instead of just picking Easy mode.
  11. If you want a playerbase, you're gonna want to put in more effort than this. You're competing against a lot of servers. I suggest providing details such as what map you play, what kind of settings and mods you're running, time zone, number of players, etc.
  12. Dear Ark, We need to break up. It's not me, it's you. You suck. You aren't the way that I want you to be, I don't want to be with you anymore, let's talk about all the reasons...
  13. Arg Anky Frog Basil Wolf I could survive with only these 5, and I probably don't even need the wolf.
  14. Except there are still trolls in PvE, as evidenced by weekly forum posts. As for wiping, I haven't been wiped in 2 years of playing PvP, and have plenty of time to do everything including bosses, even as a solo tribe. What else ya got?
  15. I can only speak for myself, but my bitterness towards PVE stems from the fact that they get all of the rewards with less of the risks. PVP players are above PVE players, because we face both the easy, programmed opponents and the more difficult human ones. One man's exploit is another man's common sense. That "one up" thing you're talking about has been driving the advancement of human civilization for quite a while now. Without it, we're playing with rocks, not virtual dinosaurs. No idea what #5 means.
  16. Already put in thousands of hours. Quit because I got tired of the devs coddling people who do dumb stuff and lose their stuff.
  17. Opinion noted. Unfortunately for the OP, definitions of PvE not covered by the CoC are subjective at best. Some folks see the "Free Candy" sign and just have to get in the van...
  18. The island is home to the two most dense concentrations of tree cover I've found on any map. Both are extremely annoying to raid if the defender has spent adequate time on defenses. Hard to make a plan of attack when you can't see where anything is.
  19. A good raid is fun but a good infiltration is better. Kudos to the thief for understanding game mechanics and using them to their advantage.
  20. A fine sentiment. Unfortunately, benevolence is not a luxury that players serious about their defense can afford. When survival has been prioritized, it's either conquer or be conquered. Once you've seen a few wolves make it to the gates in sheep's clothing, the sheep start dying too.
  21. Friends don't let friends play Official.
  22. Yup. They've decided to shut down Ark, but a simple schedule and press-release are boring. While sipping sherry and twirling their mustaches, they've devised a devious plan of slightly buggy updates to eventually drive the playerbase mad before they finally pull the plug.
  23. Happens to everyone at some point. Good that you learned the lesson now, so later when you finally hatch that purple/black bird with all your max stats that you've been trying to get for 2 weeks you'll know to stay up until 3am hand-feeding it. Somewhere in dino heaven, all the ghost babies from trough starvation are hanging out with all the babies we accidentally ate before hatching. It's a sad party.
  24. Didn't mean bitter about this issue specifically, just about the collective group of stuff that annoys you. Don't take it the wrong way, I enjoy watching you get fired up about stuff, even if I don't always agree with you. I was like that too, before I ran out of energy and just lowered my expectations lol
  25. I'll be surprised if there are still official servers in a few years. Once the revenue stream dries up to the point that it's no longer profitable to maintain them, we'll have the greatest forum day ever.
