  1. Honestly wildcard needs to really clear that sort of stuff up. Dossiers also claim that the desmodus should have a fear screech mechanic but it's only vocal ability is its echolocation. Dossiers also claim pegos are skittish but those things are beyond insane with their aggression and willing to have a go at more or less everything in the game of a player is on it.
  2. Eh, I wouldn't bet on it. After the fustercluck that was cyberpunk I adopted a strict "no games with Hollywood celebrities in them" policy.
  3. Funny thing is the colors they have listed for the event aren't even new. They've been in the color IDs for quite a while. Usually when hearing the word "new" you'd expect a different color altogether
  4. I think most people more or less agree that ark2 will be dead in the water from the jump. Pity really, I can't imagine hiring Diesel was cheap.
  5. Conquest of a region that was already founded isn't exactly novel, nor is displacing the indigenous populace. Hell, prior to the "discovery" of the Americas the locals were murdering and evicting each other left right and center for land and religious regions. I mean central and South America alone were basically a preindustrial thunderdome. It's actually a fascinating if morbid thing to read about if you're a history buff.
  6. >your game isn't working the way it's supposed to >your game >your Well I'll be damned, didn't know VOLUNTEER forum mods have immediate insider knowledge on and control over why things don't work in the game
  7. It not being a novel idea does not then make it right to essentially steal from all of them. If a guy who's lived his entire life not hurting anyone suddenly gets a server he's paid to have up since ark's inception taken from him purely because of the place he was born in then that isn't justice, nor will it stop the war.
  8. This I'm actually inclined to agree with. One cannot willingly break a law and be surprised that punishment incurs regardless of how "arbitrary" the border may seem. Humans, as with virtually every territorial animal, have fought over imaginary lines in the sand for as long as they've been around. If anything while American treatment of those that illegally cross borders may seem harsh they're an absolute cakewalk compared to how some other countries would handle it. I invite anyone that disagrees to try walking from South Korea over to North Korea and seeing how it goes. To date only three people to my knowledge have done it and not been indefinitely detained in a cell, "disappeared", or openly rendered into chunky salsa with lead garnish. -- I feel the need to point out that while the three that successfully did this weren't harmed it was because they defected from their military service and were more or less living in a gilded cage and used as a way to try and make the North Korean government seem less monstrous.
  9. Banning someone purely for their nationality is beyond stupid. You're punishing some random guy for the actions of their country's leaders. Unless every single one of them are actively harassing your friend with anti Ukranian statements you've got nothing to stand on. As to the individuals actually doing it, report them for harassment. Trying for a blanket ban is just childish.
  10. Sanguine elixir apparently helps taming. Acquire bat, acquire better hawk. Though to be honest if you're just spawning in the hawk anyway you may as well just gmsummon it unless it was purely to test it. Health, speed, a bit into oxygen since I'm in the water a lot
  11. It used to be that opinions were like arseholes and everyone had one. Now it's opinions are like arseholes after a run in with Taco Bell; like or not you're going to find out the contents of them.
  12. Wow, it's almost as if you glossed over the "in this context" bit. You know, the bit that points out that in that particular circumstance it was referring to something specific, that bit? As for the prohibition era it turned out to be an absolutely awful idea for two reasons: One, it allowed various criminal organizations that still persist today to really take off and gain power by smuggling or brewing alcohol because surprise surprise some people like being drunk. Two, droves of people severely poisoned or harmed themselves with the drinking or production of hooch that was brewed by people who did not know what the sweet blue hell they were doing and was neither prepared nor proofed properly. If similar measures are applied today I highly doubt we'll see the Abortion Mafia running some underground network of fetus snatching, but you better believe that we'll see a repeat performance of that second issue as people turn to unqualified individuals to solve their dilemma.
  13. Don't be obtuse. Prohibition in that context was the term for the banning of alcohol back in the 20s.
  14. A few new maps, a few new dinos to tame, a few new weapons. There's netguns now and depending on if you play pve or pvp they're either a blessing or a curse. Shadowmanes are the new combat meta, there's giant baboons that disable tek now, and arks still a buggy mess. Classic ark's story got wrapped with with gen2 and it just released its final map.
  15. Your personal agreements and disagreements on the matter are irrelevant, what's required here is statistical data. Shooting out an incredibly disproportionate number like that comes off as ludicrous unless you have a credible and non biased source to back it. If you really want to quibble about dealing with consequences then like it or not abortion is in fact a form of dealing with a consequence, it's simply not a way of dealing with it that matches to your particular point of view. As an aside I don't think a woman that has a run in with ol' Cosby and his special sleepy time puddin pops is going to consider the aftermath of said run in as a miracle. -- Facepalming every post I make that runs counter to your belief system doesn't invalidate what I've said. Just so you know.
  16. The thing with that though is you're trying to lump every circumstance that doesn't involve some chick getting more trains run on her than a New York railway into .1% which is pretty disingenuous. Condoms can break, birth control can fail or be missed (granted the miss is on the fault of the user if they aren't keeping track), and someone may just decide "no means no" more of a suggestion. Trying to condense all of these instances into .1% is kinda crazy.
  17. This is also a good option, I'm just kinda rooted in the old ways
  18. Kicked in fenrisúlfr's door for a fifth time to beat it up, this time for a friend. Bred another andrewsarchus, cleared out some fencing some jaggoff was trying to use to block of a natural land bridge that wasn't near enough to his base in one of the prebuilt villages to be justifiable (seriously if you do this kind of garbage you deserve to have soggy cereal for life), frothed at the mouth at the fact fenrir aren't breedable, scoured the map for beavers and dams after a player was struggling to find them, frothed at the mouth because people were building so close to all of their spawn points on Midgard that it was messing with their spawns, offered him paste from my personal storage and told him to tame a frog or snail, cleared more structures, drug friend around with my desmodus to find alpha creatures because she wanted to level her chibis to reach 190 for mjolnir
  19. Ark is a cruel mistress. She giveth; she taketh away
  20. Scientists quibble about this sort of stuff all the time dude. It's never been universally agreed upon what constitutes life in the gestational sense. Where extraterrestrial singlecelled organisms are concerned it's still kind of up in the air too unless we get definitive testing that can prove those microbes match all criteria for being considered life. It's just that in the latter case saying you found life on mars sounds better for netting research funding than going "we might've found something that maybe holds the qualities of life as we currently understand it". Eggheads gotta learn to word things good if they want papa gubmint to open his wallet.
  21. A bit harsh to lump this group in alongside the people that just want entertainment with the "maybe people will do the same bit" don't you think? There are times when the political sphere can genuinely need to take a backseat to ones personal issues. Lords knows if I were facing something like imminent homelessness or cancer the last thing on my mind would be a Supreme Court ruling unless it was directly linked to my housing or illness situation. Despite what the Nyrin said silence isn't necessarily assent; sometimes it's just a focus on other matters. Granted if that's the case the person in the hypothetical probably shouldn't be waffling about in game forums, but still.
  22. We made a machine that can theoretically kill us all in a black hole by speeding particles near or to the speed of light. Not sure about you but personally I think that's more impressive than doing what literally every non singlecelled species can do.
  23. I watch him here and there but he kinda pads his videos so I tend to zone out after a while. I've the attention span of a coked up spaniel at the best of time.
