      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. This is my little compy. Was lucky to get her tamed considering how the server is often at cap. Love my Majestic Magenta!!!
  2. Tames disappearing

    I'd suggest flying around and whistle for them. As a previous post mentioned they may have chased something. If you are on an official PVE server that is at cap be aware that there are some jerks who will lure away other folks tames and hide them in order to tame or breed something when the other person's tame eventually dies. I lost a diplo and spino to someone that way. I could whistle them but couldn't find them. My guess is someone had them under the map somewhere. Anyway, good luck!
  3. As many have noted, there is an ongoing problem with PVE servers hitting tame cap, especially during events. This is irritating for folks trying to get started on a server, and just as irritating for long time residents of the servers who are active on the server. During a discussion it was pointed out that there are folks who get around the tribe tame limit by having multiple accounts. There are also Asian players who use the NA servers as garages for their animals. I don't know if this is also true with EU players using NA servers in a similar manner or vice versa but in any event those storage tribes are inhibiting the server's more active and new residents by taking quite a bit of the number of animals allowed. Some suggestions that were made during our discussion: Restricting the servers to that particular region, thereby eliminating other regions from using another region's servers as storage. Increase the number of PVE servers available in all regions Using a player's IP as a means of determining their tame limit on a particular server. This would allow more people to tame on a server, but not impede those with multiple accounts who use their additional accounts for gathering and crafting purposes. I think 500 dinos for one person, regardless of the number of accounts they have should be more than enough for most people. Lower the number of players allowed on each server Thoughts/suggestions/comments???
  4. 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.
  5. Legacy Official PVE Server Backups

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

    Thanks so much, there's only one problem. My game gets to the same point and freezes: TheIsland_Ruins
  7. 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.
  8. When, exactly was that? And were you moving dinos at the time??? ;D
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. ITEM UPLOAD IS BROKEN

    @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...
  14. 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!!
  15. 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.
