  1. Use your context clues, we are discussing PVE there are no alpha tribes.
  2. Do they hold a new vote every time a new player joins to see whether there is 100% agreement? You and they are full of so much raptor poo, stop trying to justify selfishness
  3. T I have no aversion to playing games with people who play differently. I'm not the one making up my own rules on a public server
  4. None asked you to get involved at all. You decided to answer my question which was directed to the OP, maybe you should let people answer for themselves if they want to in future.
  5. You don't see the problem with them carrying newbies through boss fights and making the rest of the game pointless to these people? It's how are they keeping their sever "Healthy" It works like this New player Day 1 join server Day 2 get carried through boss fight ( no real involvement just stay at the back out of the road ) Day 3 what do we do now? we beat the game already Day 4 leave server look for new game Very helpful
  6. Personally if it was someone on my steam friends I would have given them a heads up if I had spotted ahead of time that the timers were about to run out. After they have run out I would collect as much as I could and store it for them message them give them maybe 6 weeks to reply. But if you just want to keep the stuff that is fine too, everyone knows the timers exist no one can expect anything if they don't refresh them If they arrive back and ask awkward questions you could tell them you didn't get there quickly enough for the BPS and cryos and those are lost to some of the
  7. Clearly you have no idea what I read from that post or the other thread. No one has to do anything. But people should be allowed to do as they please within the COC. Think carefully about what the OP and the other established tribes are actually doing. They are taking what many consider to be the end game for the Island and giving it to new players so that those new players will not do any of the things that are required to reach that end point. Not for the benefit of those new players but to ensure that no one else tries to enjoy the game and tame and breed their own boss army
  8. You're confusing me! You don't want people breeding their own dinos Yet in another thread you have started you say Ark is a breeding game
  9. What we really need is servers that are reliable enough to make the events enjoyable and worthwhile. I hatched gigas ( not a huge amount only 4 ) on the first day of valentines event, but due to server crashes and the resulting rollbacks they are as yet only at 48% matured. That's 7 real world days of 3x and 3 days of normal rates and still only 48%. One day I had the joy of imprinting them 4 times, that's the same imprint 4 times! Everytime as soon as I got them imprinted the server crashed and rolled back to before the imprint. I'd rather they spent their time dealing with t
  10. Much better community crunch, information about what you are doing to tackle issues to help the players base is much more valuable than some of the content of recent crunches The official network still needs a pretty big overhaul though. EU-PVE-Official-TheIsland78 Uptime 7 Days: 74%. If you had a pizza delivered and 25% was missing I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be happy Hopefully you'll work on this now as I'd love to read that you'd sorted this in a crunch in the near future
  11. yeah getting salty because someone faceplamed a post can you believe it
  12. And I don't go around giving other forum members the finger. If you don't like other people having an opinion then maybe you should move on

  14. It's not pessimism, it's cynicism. I didn't create it, Wildcards history of letting people down created it. I am very optimistic about the future, another game will come along and I will ditch Ark the same as I gave up a stack of other titles in the past. But it won't be Ark 2. I am very cynical about Wildcards ability to operate on anything other than a scale of well funded amateurism. I'd love them to prove me wrong, but, really I have no trust in them being able to, new engine, clean slate, it won't matter if the company's attitude and culture doesn't change
  15. Servers are unplayable, why extend that?
  16. The engine makes no difference. Wildcard are clearly too disorganised to make a change to the way they operate to deal with their obvious weaknesses. They have become complacent that people will just accept them half assing everything, poor support and communication are driven by attitude not the engine the game was built on New people arrive at Wildcard and post all over the forums about how active they are going to be to help the community but slowly over time they post less till they too are gone submerged in the black hole of Wildcard silence They have our money and on
  17. Not sure if it was a bug or not, the first giga we ever tamed kept going unconscious because we had over tranqued it. Even after it was tamed it's torpor kept going up and it would pass out, we'd stim it back awake and it's torpor would just continue to climb. Made it a nightmare to get back to our base at the other end of the Island. Fun times
  18. @Cedric @Dollie @lilpanda Guys there are real issues with your server network at the moment, this has been ongoing since before Christmas but is much worse whenever there is an event. The servers are constantly crashing at server save and rolling back anything up to an hour at a time. It really makes trying to achieve anything almost impossible. It's no fun waiting for eggs to hatch repeatedly or hand feeding of babies for an hour just to have to go back and do it all again because of another crash and rollback. Would really be good if someone can try and work out what the issue is
  19. Do you mean lilpanda's reply to me from way back in 2019? That was actually before this thread even existed. I've always found lilpanda very helpful but clearly he has a big enough job to manage their servers and I don't think he has the time anymore to answer individual server issues personally. It shouldn't really be his job to do that. Wildcard have people that they pay to communicate with their customers, but they are notably absent in this thread. If people have issues with servers they are free to comment on them. Telling other forum members to shut up is incredibly rude.
  20. It is a good idea, it would save you having to pop back transmitter to check when you are able to upload or transfer with stuff in your inventory. Or given the current performance of the extinction server I play on when the next crash will happen.
  21. Could be port forwarding. I had a friend who had a similar issue after changing his router recently, after changing to what was a newer and supposedly better router he couldn't see any servers in the server browser. Turned out the newer router his 4g provider recommended did not have UPnP. Once we got port forwarding setup on his router it sorted him out
  22. I think we can gauge by the most frequent topic in this thread and the 316 page server instability thread that Wildcard have a significant amount of detractors. I know someone posted that player numbers grew recently, which made me think Can we have some stats around how many of those players were new players, how many were as a result of free EGS access and how long they remained players? It's easy to add numbers especially through the EGS free weekends, but would Wildcard like to share some data on how many of those "added" players stick around compared to how many find the
  23. Best way to Level Chibis in doing Purple OSD on extinction as the corrupt alpha tek rexes give the best XP to your Chibi I don't think you can skip levels, if you check your character implant it says "Chibi Dino Level ups x Max Level x get a Chibi Dino to Level y to advance"
