    Spino vs Rex

    Unridden Spinos do fight on 2-legs and can be buffed via the puddles of water in the Broodmother arena. I recently killed Alpha brood with 19 spinos and 1 yuty, it was a very quick encounter but I did lose 2 Spinos. The biggest challenges I faced were fitting 19 spinos at an obelisk and trying to pull the boss near to a large puddle. I put the majority of points into health and only managed to get my Spinos to 30k Health which is just not enough to be safe. Maintaining the water buff on unridden Spinos is tricky and unreliable so I agree that a mix of unridden Rexes and ridden Spinos for the broodmother (+Yuty ofc) would be the way to go.

    Alpha Manticore doable with argies?

    I've killed beta Manticore with Argies. Biggest problem I encountered was the Manticore seemed to match the Argies for speed and often both would enter a circling pattern where neither side would do damage. I kept having to switch the Argies to passive, pull them off and send them back in, this was a huge downtime in DPS. I'm not sure if the Alpha Manticore is faster or not but if their speed is similar I'd be worried about lacking the DPS to kill it in time.

    Graphical Glitch with Screen

    I'm also experiencing this bug, seems worse lately or just bad luck (had it 3 times today).
  4. I've encountered this problem when wanting to build a water pipe down a cliffside from my base into the lake near the portal. I've instead had to go half way around the map with a crap ton of pipes just to reach the water directly under my base. Same issue with cliff platforms that high up, you can place 1 structure on them but get the "too high above ground" error when you try to snap anything else to it.

    Tree platforms don't work on Abberation. This is dumb.

    I was a little annoyed after I wasted mats crafting one, only to find out I cannot attach one to a tree. I ended up making my own platform in the end:

    Megatheriums Vs Broodmother

    My theriums had similar base stats to yours (more health, less dmg). They did really well against the Gamma and Beta but got wiped on Alpha, it's a massive increase in damage. All 19 of mine were unridden though and I imagine struggled to compete for the bug killer buff so took too much damage with my 54-66 armor saddles. My wipe on alpha is here if you wanna take a look: https://youtu.be/YFsUEQsselg?t=865

    Boss fights

    Anyone got experience with wolves against the broodmother? I recently killed the Gamma BM with 19 wolves and 1 yuty (official-legacy) and noticed the boss and adds favoured targeting my Yuty over the wolves, being only Gamma I didn't have too much of an issue and thought nothing of it. When I took the same dinos to Beta BM I soon noticed the boss and adds were completely ignoring my wolves. At first the boss was trying to get to me but was stuck running into my wall of wolves. Once my yuty started to get overrun by adds I called my wolves to help, which freed the boss. The boss + adds then preceded to pummel my Yuty down till it died, then killed me while on foot. I've killed the BM with various dinos and have never seen the AI act like that so wasn't sure if it was something to do with the wolves. I did quickly try 20 wolves on singleplayer but they got splattered in seconds so not sure if you need 1 ridden dino or if official AI differs from SP. I'd love to try again with 19 wolves and 1 full HP Rex but it's too much time consumption at this point

    Boss fights

    I recently killed Gamma Broodmother with 19x Kentros and 1x Yuty on an official server and they were far from impressive, granted mine weren't super-bred ones but all were imprinted to 98-100%... 5 Kentros survived the fight. I do have a vid up on youtube but the last time I linked one of my vids on this forum I got a warning for advertising my channel so if interested you'll have to search for it So far I've killed Gamma Brood on official servers with bears, wolves, allos, rexes, kentros, ankylos and theriums... I've only got 3 teams left (therium/ankylo/therizino) to sacrifice to bosses before I quit legacy (my way of not completely wasting months of breeding on legacy servers).
  9. I'm certainly no "pro" when it comes to breeding but I have spent some time doing Argents, My base stats are: (level 269 born): Hp 3431, St 1300, Ox 735, Fo 11800, We 744, Dm 419

    Are you buying aberation?

    I won't be buying it. I'm a legacy player receiving zero support from Wildcard so they will be receiving zero support from me.

    ARK: State of the Game

    I feel the same way as the OP, and was disappointed to hear that this change will apply also to PvE. Surely it's only a matter of time before the legacy servers shut down due to low population. Cross-ARK trading will also dry up on legacy servers, which is something I have been working towards via months of taming/breeding. A small part of me is tempted by a fresh start on a new server but a bigger part of me is put off by having to rebuild and lose 2 years (over 6k hours) of taming/breeding/building/trading. I'm just not sure atm whether or not to stop playing now and cut my losses or wait for the inevitable decline of the PvE legacy cluster.
