since ark is being bought by hundreds of younger children, ark really needs to boost there stats. I don't mean 6x or higher, i know about ten kids at my school that bought ark ( me being one of them ). I was the only one that continued playing, they did not just quit to play another game they quit because it is so hard to start off in a new server in ark. it took some of my friends around 30 minutes to build a decent base in a server. ( running out of stamina, starving, no water, dilo, other players ) and then once you build it all you start grinding for a bit, you log of then you could come back having your base half destroyed.
this used to drive me crazy even with a tribe.
