      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. What does this mean? What is a mesh? Current Version: 276.5Requires server update.- Fixed Dino-attached C4 to not apply damage if it explodes through a mesh.
  2. Base placement against stego drain

    Do you know this for sure? Not sure as in you read it but you actually tested it. Because every time I have tested it placing turrets above where stegos would be with turrets on survivor only resulted in the rider being killed right away every time.
  3. Dire bears

    fantastic idea. love it.
  4. +1 to argy smithy saddle.. love it
  5. Unraidable Base

    Actually, I take it back. I just tested it. Ballista works against auto turrets and heavy auto turrets but NOT tek turrets.
  6. Unraidable Base

    take turrets out with balista on a boat use raft as a breach boat with c4 to take out walls
  7. Castle fortifications in Ark practical?

    Here is a question that might answer your question.... What invention came about that made castle fortifications obsolete in the 13th century? Hint: And in Ark we have: Which makes things even worse for our castle dreams...
  8. Tips for size of solo-survivor base?

    PvP or PvE?
  9. How do I Boat?

    You are welcome
  10. I shouldve clarified, my suggestions are for pvp only. And those videos showing how easy a titan goes down is meaningless. The titan walked into a swarm of wyverns and gigas. OFC 5+ highly breed gigas are going to kill a titan quick. Whew and here I was worried about those poor poor alphas with armies of highly breed gigas. I mean f!ck the smaller tribes as long as those alphas are okay amirite guys! .... yeah...
  11. Terrible Idea. Defense is so much weaker than attack as it is without this change. Would need rebalance. 1. No platform saddle for titan 2. Cant be healed by veggie cake 3. Has a rage mechanic like giga.
  12. Tips for surviving official pvp?

    Making tons of things like narcotics, dino gates, bows ect is waaaay more effective...
  13. Tips for surviving official pvp?

    Yes. Levels are important. Run along the beach naked owning nothing but a stone hatchet and stone pick and harvest every tree you can pick every plant fiber you can and just make tons of wooden dino gates or bows. The xp adds up quickly. And if you die... who cares just respawn and continue till you are at your level.
  14. Tips for surviving official pvp?

    Or put the bin on the raft and push it into some terrain so its not visible and can't be reached.
