  1. Legacy Official PVE Server Backups

    I let it sit and eventually I was able to get past that point and get into the single player game. Took a while but eventually got in. Game was very choppy and laggy. Hoping that once I get some of the other dinos and bases cleared off it will run better.
  2. Legacy Official PVE Server Backups

    I did let it sit there, but maybe not long enough. Will try again and let you know. Thanks!
  3. Legacy Official PVE Server Backups

    Thanks so much, there's only one problem. My game gets to the same point and freezes: TheIsland_Ruins
  4. We are shutting down our unofficial server, so I'm uploading items into the Ark Data area of the obilisk/tek transmitter and some of the items have disappeared when I log into my singleplayer game to download them there. It wouldn't be a problem, but the counter for the ark data still says those items are uploaded. This has happened twice. This second time the counter on my single player game says 75/50 and won't let me upload anything in that game. I should mention that on the unofficial server there is no limit listed for uploading items(ie 0/50, it says 0/---) so the first time I accidentally put more than 50 items in the data area on the unofficial end of things. Only a portion of the items entered that time showed up on the other end (single player game) but the count said there were items in the inventory. Same thing happened the second time around. Pleas help me, even if its only to clear out the inventory and lose the items supposedly uploaded. My friend also has the same problem.
  5. When, exactly was that? And were you moving dinos at the time??? ;D
  6. Also, just because a server says 70 people only means that is the amount on the server at any given time. There can literally be well over 100 people collectively playing on a server. The 70 player limit is only for the number allowed at one time. If they keep the total people playing on the server to the server limit of 70, or no more that 20 additional people it might help mitigate the taming problem since fewer people collectively will be playing on the server. Of course that means they'll need to open more servers... There are also tribes on the PVE servers who will hit tribe tame cap, break into multiple tribes that are then allied, and go for tribe tame cap again. When other folks on those servers try to talk to those tribes they are either ignored (true most of the time) or find things kited into their base after complaining about the excessive taming/breeding by those tribes. It wouldn't surprise me if some of those tribes do it on purpose just to get the server up to server tame cap.
  7. Trike won't sprint

    Just tamed a lvl 130 trike on Official TheCenter60. No real weight on the animal, and stamina was at full, but when I pressed shift W it wouldn't sprint. Is there something I"m missing?? I've tamed trikes previously and they sprinted so not sure what's up here.
  8. Anyone Else Feed up with the Lack of Servers?

    I don't get why they don't have server specifically dedicated to a region (NA, EU, OC) as other gaming companies have them. It makes more sense. You will have griefers, ddosers, and dupers in any set region but less likelyhood of having them do so in all three regions. It makes the game much less enjoyable and leads to more negative reviews.
  9. I'm beginning to wonder if WC has an ulterior motive for keeping Legacy servers. What if the real purpose of keeping them was so they'd have servers available for the upcoming Aberration DLC? I would not be surprised if we see another round of repurposing just before the DLC launches.

    @GreenRoc JAYCE!!!! I wonder if this is just another way to anger current players and drive them either from the game or force them to start all over again on the new servers. Either way it is hurting rather than helping the game. It also makes it extremely difficult to transfer stuff using the beacons. I often use the beacons on SE simply because I hate the kapros at the obis there. Now I'll have to keep the items I want to transfer on my person for a good half hour before I can use a beacon, kind of difficult if I find I need something right away-like gas, or kibble for taming. Can't just change characters and transfer the stuff, then pop on your original character to pick up the stuff. Very bad planning on your part, WildCard...
  11. I beg to differ. I have been involved in betas of other MMOs. The beta testers worked just as hard, if not harder, even though they knew all their work was going to be wiped simply because they knew they were working to get the best game made. We were given a thank you gift for our hard work, and had a bit of an advantage when game launched in that we knew where key resources and objects could be found, and what to expect from the environment. Knowing the mechanics gives you a distinct advantage. Being honest with your playerbase builds loyalty, trust, and positive reviews. Treating your playerbase the way WildCard has does none of those things. Folks are skeptical of their intent now and take what they have to say with a very large salt mine!!
  12. platform saddles joke?

    From reading discord chat I think NA PVE 327 (Island) hit cap due to the platform tame count. Fortunately there are folks on there willing to cull and break platforms so others could tame and breed.
  13. changes to oil and gasoline

    Any idea if they are going to fix this? First they make it so you have to feed your animals more often, now they make it so your gas doesn't last as long. Are they Trying to piss off the player base??? I'm about to go on vacation for 5 days and I don't know what I'll come back to. This is complete BS when you can't even take a few days off to spend time with your family.
  14. changes to oil and gasoline

    I transferred to Thecenter592-PVE and was surprised to find that our generator had run out of gas, so I put 150 gas in thinking that would last the 6 days I need while I'm on vacation. When I checked it 24 hours later is was down below half of that. Previously a can of gas would last 1 hour, meaning 100 cans should theoretically last for 4 days 4 hours. Have they changed the consumption rate for generators? I don't remember seeing anything in the patch notes about that. I should add others on 592 also noticed this with their generators. Many by logging in to discover their generators were empty.
  15. I noticed that both 327 and 759 PVE servers do not have the BattleEye icon next to them for some reason
