  1. Now you're getting it. Doesn't time factor into replayability? You feel driven to continue. Also in ark, you'll either invest the time to gaining your assets, or you'll get instant-gratification and become bored too easily. The replayability is there, but the sustainability is not. Now as far as what dear old VM just stated above, I'd just assumed that they were either joking or attempting a playful troll, because there is no actual way that it could be taken seriously in this age. I'm still wondering if anyone will catch it yet.
  2. Ok..I'm honestly slightly surprised at how far up over a number of heads the term "investment" just went.. Either the concept is too high or its just ignored altogether. If one can only quantify the term financially then the burden placed was just too high. Either that or its simply the human condition to be tuned to agree with a specific set of individuals. It just seems odd. I was curious but I'll admit: It threw me off a little.
  3. Many scenarios beg to differ, along with many more that easily refute that, but I'll leave it at that; perspectives are also subjective despite fact. This explains a lot, though. Lets just agree to disagree. However, I'll just leave you to think about that last part for yourself.
  4. Not entirely; time + effort = results, regardless of the platform as this is true in anything in life. Time is the equivalent of money - except worth 'much' more, dare I say priceless. I earned what I put the time and effort into taming and creating via building. Enjoyment gained from earning as you build and tame also factor into your currency, adding to your personal experience of wealth. Comparing something such as an action shooter is irrelevant, considering once you leave - you're gone. However, you are also incorrect there as well considering the fact that experience and tactics gained i
  5. True. This would assume that logic and common sense were at play. If for all these years the company in question still refused to acknowledge the performance demands of the clients - I.E. players - before up and saying "Welp, that's all folks! On the the next venture!" then there isn't a single doubt in my mind that they'd actually *neglect learn this important lesson. Not a dime from me, said this one. As per usual; once a week... I get on once a week to see if anything's changed, and make sure nothing despawns. That is all its worth for me at this moment. Much less annoyance whil
  6. Take that still-beaten old sportbike with the lopsided forks, blown cylinder head and multitudes of problems still existent across the board and be the company known for building yet another motorcycle while neglecting any of the problems that its predecessor had before it. I'm sure riders would 'love' to hop on that one... Its official: wc and Harley go hand-in-hand. As long as it looks cool though, right?
  7. A regrettable ordeal, but it'd likely be wise - if you simply just enjoy officials only - to just cease wasting your time on such a broken game. At least abandoning any sort of gratification whilst playing on officials. I only hop on once a week for a few minutes to make sure things don't despawn; waiting for the day when this company would actually gain 'any' semblance of permanence in their "bug fixes". Personally I feel it is no longer worth any more than 10 minutes of my time.
  8. I 'really' wish to know wildcard's stance on this. Too much "You bought the game, not the support and/or servers" current logic floating about. This could set that straight.
  9. Truth. That in and of itself should tell you plenty. Then again, it hasn't told the dev team much besides to pump out more content so...likely not. Wasn't trying to start a "captcha" trend, just stating that it seems exceptionally bot-like.
  10. I've never seen a single soul in these forums preach the exact same thing more than them about unofficials. Its almost bot-like...
  11. "So as we see here, despite the constant problems, some players are still managing to come out pretty well for themselves. Lets seeee....There's sheep in the game? Oh, yeah! Ovis! Almost forgot about that one..." "Yeah, they're either finding them or gathering resources for a tame, then keeping them to get around better and even succeed at building up from little in order to survive better." "Indeeeed... How about we just go ahead and tweak that for 'em." "Genius!" See? It's fine when you take into consideration the fact that you aren't actually
  12. I won't bore you with a healthy, lengthy response. I'll just tell you that right now its...pretty terrible. You'll sink hours upon hours into what could amount to - at any given point - nothing at all due to something that happened with literally any recent patch, only to get trolled when you question why and mostly ignored when requesting assistance. The integrity of the current official servers make it seem largely that of a laughable parlor trick. All of this will likely happen to the point where you just pokeball your tames and only log-in a day or so out of the week just to make sure thin
  13. Regretful, but I doubt that anyone can give you any solid response any time soon. Support moves as rapidly as an achatina, and I'm honestly still surprised a lot of people aren't opting for the whole "shut down" approach to their bases.
  14. You should've checked your tribe permissions. I used to leave a vault of junk(to me) open when everything else is prohibited to see if someone wishes to loot 'n scoot. Randos should not be trusted otherwise. Or...y'know... ....This...
  15. Its true. The only option for social interaction is going into an unofficial, and then when that stops suddenly, then you may hop to yet another. Then another. Also another. I mean, likely a little better performance at the cost of uncertainty weighed upon the official's buggy-yet-consistent(for the...moderate part) nature. There' a chance it may stay up for years, actually. You just have 'no' idea unless you purchase your own, and even that may become corrupted at your top dollar. So unofficial is....is the only way to go....just be prepared to spend more and/or keep
