  1. Very True!!! If you look at the downtime history on Battlemetrics you can see that this has been an ongoing problem since LAST Winter Event!! It seems to happen most often during the events, with at least 1-4 server crashes lasting multiple hours each event. I know we're ONLY PVE in your eyes, but PVE players do make up a decent amount of the playerbase. One has to wonder, if WC is unwilling to address these issues in the current version of Ark, whether or not the current players will want to waste their money on ARKII...
  2. NA-PVE-Official-Ragnarok382 - (v320.38) OK, this is getting ridiculous!! This is the THIRD TIME in as many days that this server has been down for more than TWELVE HOURS!!! Stop playing your games, put down your remotes and FIX THESE SERVERS WC!!!!
  3. If they are going to adjust the stats for the Ice, Fire, Lightning, and poison wyverns, then I propose that they do a 'mindwipe' of those animals so the players have a one-time chance to re-distribute the points earned while levelling up the animals in much the same way they mindwipe our characters on occasion. That way we can adjust things to use them to the best of their new abilities. Also, many of the older players probably don't remember their wyvern's original stats. I know I didn't pay too much attention to them after they hatched since they weren't breedable. This would give us a
  4. As good as the additional items sound it would be very confusing, plus the amount of work to institute these crop changes would be immense, I would believe. Would love to see crop plots for mushrooms, rare flowers, and cacti though. harvestable crops do need a TLC, sooner rather than later!
  5. I was kind of surprised when my basilo tame required more kibble than I originally thought it would.
  6. I knew they had been doubled, just though the harvesting bonus also applied to things you picked up. Doesn't seem quite fair to me if you don't get the harvesting bonus when you use your hands. It's like you're being penalized for picking stuff up off the ground.
  7. Regarding supposed harvesting boost Explain to me how, if we are once again picking up only 1 stone, and none of the material quantities changed for blueprints and engrams, this is a 2x boost to harvesting? Since we are harvesting the stone with our hands, shouldn't we still be picking up 2 stones? I'm also skeptical that taming has been changed to 2x.
  8. There appears to be multiple problems with multiple servers. Not only is there insane lag on them, but folks are getting black screens when they go to certain areas and are unable to log back into that server, and other servers are playing the roller coaster game of being up, then down, then up, rinse repeat. Tickets have been sent but very little action. Hello, WC, are you even home???
  9. Excuse me for being a cynic, but I have my doubts that the bugs and game design issues would be fixed if they went to a pay to play format. Their past track record regarding these issues would lead me more to believe it was just another way to create revenue without doing the work to fix the problems. They don't have the reputation that longer term developers have of creating and maintaining their game, and tackling problems and complaints of their player base in an efficient and timely manner. My guess is they would lose a significant amount of their player base if they chose to go that route
  10. My NA PVE servers, specifically my CI 854, Valguero 564, and to a lesser extent Rag servers 382 and 383 have all been experiencing repeated disconnections, as in it goes down, then it's up for a minute, then down again, rinse and repeat. Many believe someone could be duping, or maybe a DDOS attack, though not sure on that. On my Val 564 server there's been major problems with rubberbanding and insanely high ping as well. I've been hearing in discord that there are other NA servers experiencing the same problem, all starting up last week after the update. I should add I'm in NA so these ar
  11. Server Stability On our Crystal Isles discord server we have a bot that notifies us when the server goes down. I've been noticing in the past week or so there has been a marked increase in the number of times the server goes down. The server seems to go down in a series of consecutive ups and downs. This has also been happening on my Valguero server, and to a lesser extent on my Rag server. It seems like either duping or DDOS, but not sure. The servers are NA-PVE-Official-Valguero564, Crystal Isles 854, and Ragnarok 382. I've also heard the Ragnarok 383 has also been experiencing this. At th
  12. The problem a few folks on my server (crystal isles na pve 854) have been having is that when it happened they werent able to get back on to do anything. They are immediately disconnected when they try to log in. This is a BIG problem for them because there is now no one in their tribes to refreshtimers or feed animals. They are essentially going to lose everything because every time they file a report it is either marked immediately as solved or the are given the run around with no solution to their problem. So, yeah, no screenshots from them.
  13. I posted the outage link on our discord server with the recommendation that folks file a report. Thanks for the link!
  14. Crystal Isles Water Vein Bugged I've tried multiple times to place a water well on the water vein at 69.3, 55.1 and it won't allow you to place one here. Can this be fixed please??
  15. There have been multiple people on our server, 854 who have been saying that they have had the same issues with regular crystal taming attempts.
  16. Huh, well that's good to know. Hope it's back to normal soon. It's been really awful on 382 this event. It's to the point that folks are leaving the server because they can't play.
  17. Well, lets hope that's the case. I'll check back a little later today and see where we stand. Still doesn't explain the PVP mode or the fact the server indicates being locked and requiring a password. That's why I posited the hacking notion. What you described with not seeing the owner and inventory flickering is EXACTLY what I"m experiencing! Maybe they should rollback the server to sometime Sunday afternoon/evening when there wasn't these issues for folks logging in. I know things are probably crazy for WildCard right now. Good luck to all of them. Having to deal with all o
  18. Yep tried again, still kicked out, also can't seem to access my inventory. It flashes on but immediately disappears. I'm wondering if someone has hacked into that server and messed things up for the players already on there. I noticed on Battlemetrics that the number of players has dropped dramatically, and not because the server has been having problems and folks haven't been playing. Since about 7:30pm EST Sunday there hasn't been more than five players on the server. It's still technically online but nobody's able to play it.
  19. NA-PVE-OFFICIAL-RAGNAROK382 is messed up NA-PVE-OFFICIAL-RAGNAROK382 is showing up on the log in screen as locked, and is marked as PVP. When you try to log in it asks for a password. Quite a few folks have mentioned this in our discord chat. They also mentioned that they were getting booted out every 5-10 minutes. The server is showing as online in battlemetrics but no more than 4 players have been on at any one time in the past 12+ hours. A tribemate also mentioned that multiple servers have been experiencing the same problems. HELP!!
  20. Messed up Servers There appears to be something strange happening to random servers. When I went to log into Ark today I found that my Rag server (NA-PVE-RAGNAROK382) was supposedly locked, it indicated that it was now PvP, and when I logged in, hitting accept at the password request, I found myself kicked out of my tribe. I filed a ticket, but I'm not sure if it'll be resolved before all my animals and stuff disappears. I'm hoping they do a rollback to before this issue showed up. Are there other folks experiencing this same problem?
  21. I've heard reports in my discord channels of other servers showing up as PvP, not showing up at all, and some folks getting requests for a password for an official server. I'm wondering if there's some trolls messing around with the servers causing these and the DC problems. My rag server has been going down on a regular basis since the beginning of April, often for anywhere from 3-16 hours at a time. Really sucks!
  22. You might want to try PVE instead of PvP if you want to play to tame and build structures more interesting than a box. Folks who try pulling crap like kiting animals to other tribe's bases or griefing players will find themselves quickly banned for their actions. Keep in mind, the older servers have well-established tribes and many areas, especially in the starter zones claimed. Still, on the right server with the right folks you can have a lot of fun with a good community.
  23. According to their last patch notes we should be seeing more event dinos since they upped it from 10% to 25%. Just wish they'd fix the spawns. From what I've heard it's affecting many different animal species.
  24. And yes, I know, I have a problem...
