    Cool. At least its not a "its broke and we dont know what is causing it" situation
  2. Community Crunch 98: Gold Master Edition

    1) I can say with certainty that i have met more legal aged adult players than ive met people 16 or younger on ark. windows not missed, and anyhow, with kids starting school....I dont know about you but thats like the blowoff part of the school year. I was in honors classes and can attest that the first 6 weeks of the school year are the easiest. Kids will have time. 2)About Dark and Light. Have you seen that game? Have you played it? Have you by chance seen the ini and game files? I have, and the funny thing is it all looked exactly like ark in many ways, particularly the ini and config files and file structure(right down to portions being copied and pasted pretty much, which you can tell because of the things like "dinofooddrain=1.0000" and stuff like that. This makes total sense because wildcard is owned by the same company that owns the dev studio that does Dark and Light. So, if it werent for wildcard then dark and light would be at square one still, and not with a premade and finely tweaked engine made by wildcard. Given that its a business nothing is free, like the use of that engine, even if it is their sister company so my point here is is Dark and Light suceeds then that means Wildcard succeeds. IT also suceeds by merit alone of the fact that the very foundation of that game was wildcards creation, so in that perspective if Dark and Light succeeds then thats something for WC to be proud of. It's pretty smart for the parent company, its like a guy going to a small town with no restaraunts and opening a mcdonalds on one side of a street and a burger king on the other side of the street. People will pick their side and some may dabble in both, and some may hate the opposing side. Either way, the guy owns both and still rakes in money by giving both options, seemingly pitted against each other.
  3. Wow this flyer nerf is beyond overkill.

    The quetzal was one my favorite dinosaur(and I wasnt one of those guys boxing them or even raiding with them). Now, I walk out to my dino and I just look at it in disgust and sadness, (though im not disgusted with the bird itself but more so disgusted that this happened to it.) and I dont ride it unless I HAVE too. When those rare times do come up I am dreading it the entire walk out to the dino pen. Theres more than one side to look at here and i see people generally only looking at one or the other. Prior to the nerf, birds were fun but when speed crossed a certain threshhold they could move faster than turrets, and scoop up a tribemate and be gone before you realize DILO just happened lol. So it was also unfair. Now, we look at it again and ask is it fun and is it fair? Is it fun to fly a bird now? No. All of them are slow and obnoxious except the griffin. They are neccesary evils. There is no freedom to tailor a bird into what you as a player want(a raidiing bird, farming bird, etc.) Now its confined to what were "supposed to do." Is it fair now? I will say its more fair than it was before when they were broken, in regards to raiding. Otherwise though no, it went form one side of the spectrum all the way to the other one. There was a small window where it would actually be considered fair but they went right past that and caused the inverse of the previous issue.
  4. ... Im finally done

    To OP, I see your point about the PVE thing and single player, and get the impression you(or perhaps the tribe) are playing pvp or not playing at all. Seeing as I also get the impression you(and/or your tribe) want to play but are unhappy with the way things are in pvp, I second the other people who recommend trying unofficial servers. Theyre have rates from 1x-1000x, and some are vanilla while most are modded to some degree but the thing that would solve your issue in my opinion is that well maintained servers have rules that are enforced by admins. Some common ones are no wiping(only raid to get the loot and go), no killing passives, etc. Some also have an Offline Raid Protection mod thats superior to the vanilla ORP and usually is configured so everything has 1,000,000 hp in your base and passives are invincible while youre offline. On a side note but still on topic, theres many other things that add to overall quality of life in ark in unofficial that may in itself make playing much better(Structures+ for example is an amazing mod, fixing a vast number of issues with standard structures and snap points while also adding handy extras(like resource pulling, you can pull any resource from ANY container or dino within its range, so the days of taking ten trips unloading metal from an anky or searching for which vault you put the polymer in are over). at 4200 hours in ark(including my 2nd account) id say 90% of it was in unofficial because of all these things mentioned(and more which are off topic). tl;dr Of course theres nothing wrong with pve, official pvp, or SP, but I think you and your tribe could very well see a huge improvement with the issues youre having on official by trying a decent unofficial server out. is your friend for finding a good one. Good luck

    Sweet baby jesus, thank you sir
  6. Im just looking to see if any tribes are recruiting, I only play pvp servers and HIGHLY prefer island map. Good at pvp, building, breeding, logistics for a raid and how to build defensively. have 3k+ hours, discord, a mic, all the standard stuff to be an effective tribemate.

  11. Seeing if this gets me out of gathering thatch... lol

  12. Golden Rules of Ark

    To be honest I have only ever tried a pve server one time, and it was by accident. Granted it was 2 hours before I noticed I cant give an opinion of any value as far as pve servers go... Isolated servers can be better but some are overrun. use, thats a great way to see data about a server like how many daily players(both new players and consistent/return players are counted seperately) and can help you see how active it is over a week, month, or 3 months. if numbers are steady then thats a good sign, if not or if the numbers are low then theres usually a reason. That also shows MANY more servers than the actual game does, and you can search keywords and sort them. I dont really know much like how many hours you have either, what youre wanting to do in ark in general( like just learn mechanics of it then try pvp, or build in peace, etc.) so you can hit me up on steam and I can help you more there if you want. my steamname is the same name I have here.
  13. Golden Rules of Ark

    Ahh, I see your problem. Anything against trying unofficial? they have some with official server settings all the way up to 1000x normal rates, benefit there is mods but also admins of servers usually are there to enforce rules(like no pillaring for example)
  14. Golden Rules of Ark

    Honestly the best way to tribe up on any server is to just join and get to work, level your guy up and start your starter base, move up to a good spot when you find one and just do your thing building up, be active in global chat and itll just happen on its own, most servers have at least one person a day who wanders in wanting a tribe so it wont be long before you have a few guys. If youre built up already too and take in other solo players then you usually get the benefit of being your tribes owner and calling the shots. If you dont know someone though, use your group restrictions and keep your valuables ina safe they cant access at first, or in a WELL hidden spot not at your base.
  15. If they announced plans to continue sotf...That wouldve been the absolute best news to hear. I wouldnt buy ark again for a collectors box but id pay the price of ark for sotf for sure
