  1. Center Official... Its been over a week as I have been on holiday to center Parcs (UK/EU thing). So tonight I plan on logging in to see if my tribemates have kept everything going, Im sure they have. I wont bother with Rag, Ab or SE as I leave that to them anyway, Center is my main haunt so want to check that nothing died off... but Ive a feeling some things will have. My aim tonight will be to feed everything to the point of fullness, even on single rates, and then take my new 100 imp Rex out for a levelling spree I think I left it at 412 last time so a few more levels will help out on the melee front as I think its sitting at 1200 currently and is taking too many chomps on things than what I like to see... seriously, 2 chomps on a 140 bronto!! Other than that, breed out some more eggs for the collection and possibly hatch a few Pteras looking for a mut or two
  2. I would love to say me... but I would be lying. We have a rag base right on the beach by the lighthouse, absolutely serene it is. Or should I say was. Some buggers kited a Giga into the water and around my walls and from the water came into my beachside paradise home and wiped out 3 Wyverns and chomped on much of the woodland chalet that was perfect for feeling like you were in another world. So basically we have replaced the many glass windows that were smashed, raised the main walls, and closed off the water with a behemoth gate and further metal walls so nothing can get in. The base itself has had nearly every panel replaced with metal - it doesnt look as nice but its a lot more secure - damned griefers. Started replacing the wyverns with 4 180s and a 185 Black and White poison so my tribemates will be on new flyers now
  3. With the reworking of the kibble coming soon, I wouldnt go overboard with taming eggers as that will be a waste fo time, upkeep, space and effort. Take a look at the latest upcoming patch notes as this will make it a lot better
  4. So I did spend a little more time on ARK this weekend after my week blitz of ATLAS PvP. Still haven't managed to progress on my Pteras - just not getting the stat drops, that's roughly 50 eggs I have hatched and killed in the last couple of weeks. Tribe decided to go to Rag and do Alpha Manticore and Dragon. Took our Alpha Rexes over from Center and my max tamed Yuty. Dragon went down quickly, very quickly but that lazy good for nothing Manticore just wouldn't land. We ended up getting a Rex stuck in the middle of 5 Rock Golems and it tanked them all for over 10 minutes. That was our only mistake, we should have taken out the Golems in between battles. We took 12 Rexes in with us, and Alpha 12 finally gave up the fight but at lvl 424 it had its part. We then changed tactics, smashed the golems and the Manticore started to drop down more regularly. Bye Bye Manticore. Meh, it sucked losing our first Rex in a boss fight (down to a tactical faus pax) but its done, so I now have 2 chars with the engrams. I think i will go back and start getting so Wyverns now as I need a little break from all this breeding
  5. I did nothing... absolutely nothing. Took a night off from the PC. The Christmas period killed me slightly, with an average of 7hrs per day of Atlas and ARK (mostly Giga and Rex raising). Tonight I'm going to hatch some eggs and see what I can get from my Tappys, Pteras and Allos Hope you all had a great Christmas and NYE!
  6. I havent done a lot other than bred Pteras and am in the middle of raising a Giga and a pair of Rexes of which will get 100% imprint hopefully. Atlas has taken up some of my time but I have got no muts on anything Ive bred so thinking the little break will do me good
  7. It sounds as though his internet speed is definitely causing the issue. Also, where are you based in location from him. If the other players are local and you are from further away, your ping will be higher causing you have further lag issues in comparison to those who are more local.
  8. I hatched a new Red Rex ready for my next 100% imprinted battle beast (the last one now runs lava cave with its 1600 weight). It came out at 370 so its about right give or take 10 levels, considering the first Rex I hatched was a 392 (way too close to going poof so I put that one down). I went and harvested Thyla claws and we ran Alpha Brood and Ape - took some non server players along too so they could get the engrams - nice chaps actually. It was pretty run of the mill this weekend, raising my Giga, Rex, new Ptera and some little ones too. Then I went and pissed off some Wyverns in the trench. Ive done it once or twice but on this occassion I probablt spent over two hrs in there on a Ptera pissing off the locals and then fleeing back by our Gigas parked by the entrance. The Gigas shredded the lot and were hardly touched by even the Alphas which were also found wanting. I hadnt had fun on ARK like this for a long time. There were a lot of Wyvs but the best egg I found was a 100 Lightning... meh, I was hungry. Ill have another little play later when home from work, but other than raising my Giga and Rex, it will just be a case of trying for a decent Wyv event egg I guess.
  9. So last night was a real insight into what others have been doing with their lives. I logged in and went about my usual - hatch a Pteranodon another 310 Cant seem to get any further muts or my other stats to come onto my Yellow, Cyan and Magenta bird. Tribemate is raising it as he wants to imprint upon it - it looks great but its still missing a few stats. I started to talk to a guy on here who has 3 new stats I could use, and he could use 3 of mine so we are fairly equal but his are clean - really nice. We talk, we trade and I am now starting a new clean line in which has given me a new lease of life to breed and tame more Pteras (I had given it a 6 month break). Im happy again. I like raising them, and having something to start fresh from allows me to sink some time back into ARK. 3 Gigas are currently being raised so whats a few more Pteras to throw in there. I went Raptor Clausing but didnt get any as the server is manic just now so I am just running lava cave drops instead - nothing decent here either. So last night I started to raise my new clean 310 ready to breed it out a few times so I have spares I ran some metal excursions and generally kept the global chat occupied. Oh and I cloned an Ele Gacha too - which seems to give an average of 135 dust per crystal - not too shabby.
  10. @d1nk No I didnt think it would be this popular but I get so much fun reading what peoples ideas are, what they get up to and how they go about their days. I log onto these forums during work for some down time and this thread is the one I literally read each post from start to finish. Reading what you guys get up to is great - cheers all, Merry Christmas
  11. Last night I managed to get home and do my first Giga imprint (3%) as my tribemate sat there for 7hrs hand feeding it - bless him. I reckon I can get 90% on the Giga, tribemate is going for 100% - nutter! Raptor Claus came to town, got some coal and gave it to a GachaClaus but nothing decent, just a gift to fill and give to someone. Then a Red and Black 150 Tapy flew by, having that we said, so tribemate and I lured it into an empty building and zap - downed it. I realised after an ally wanted some Carby kibble that we were running low, and that we only had a female left so tonights mission is to tame a couple of Carbys and another Oviraptor. Lastly, dropped off my 100% imprinted mistake of a Rex at the Lava Cave as that will be my runner now for drops - currently didnt touch the 30kp or 1200 melee. Now that it is stupidly at 1600 weight, I just crammed stam - 3500, and I just sprint everywhere I think the next few days will be taming so we can replace a lot of eggers with 150s and concentrate on raising the Gigas and a new Rex for me.
  12. I got stuck in traffic on the way home (1 and half hrs) so by the time I had eaten, put my daughter to bed, spent time with the wife etc I didnt have a lot of time for ARK. I logged in and pulled the Giga egg out and managed to rapidly fill its inventory with raw meat up unto 0.5% - then podded it. I reckon I can start for an 8hr imprint now as I can leave it for at least 10 mins before it runs out of food haha I bred out some Rex eggs ready for my next attempt at my 100% imprint beauty (without putting all its points in weight like this weekend - d'oh). I chose Red, but realised that my tribemate obviously didnt take the eggs off incubate as I woke up to 2 messages this morning here on the forums saying two Rex eggs at 379 hatched. Rubbish! Tonight... I will choose a few Rexes to breed and see if I can get them ready for hatching so I can try and start raising it this weekend Finished off with a metal run and sorting the invesntory of the 1000s of BPs we have lying around - this will be a mega task as they are everywhere, in dino's, safes, fabricators, smithies etc
  13. We helped an ally get their Gacha (that we gave them) pregnant - it had twins. It took 9hrs of feeding before it was stable enough to be left alone for a period of time - thats what I heard last night on our official server. Definitely meat is best.
  14. Finally got my 345 MD Giga before an Ally mentioned she had got a 365 MD Giga the same day and if I wait 2 weeks I could try for one of hers - I said no way. I will only be taming the one Giga in my life and this 345 Cyan with Black back will be fine - really wanted a Red one but that only came out at 295 MD so I shot it in the face for XP I promised a guy on the forums here an Alpha run on Center so him and his tribemates could get the engrams. After 30 mins of mulling around, they transferred over and we did a run. They didnt get the engrams - then we realised they had to be allied Felt really bad but promised them another run next weekend. We did a few metal runs, my US tribemate who gets like 18hrs a day of ARK has got a Basi with all our best stats on so I am hoping once he has that 100% imprinted, Ill get a decent breed out of it - possibly come out at over 250 which will do me fine for tribute hunting. Then here comes my bad story to tell. I was tired, I had a headache... all those excuses. I play on Official so a Rex is like 5-9 days for 100% imprint for me using cryopods to help. I had taken a wander down to my Bred 379 Rex which had a few levels sitting there so I decide it has enough HP now (30k I stopped at from 22k base). I start whipping up the melee, yeah thats better 1600 weight. FFS weight!! I now have the best Lave Cave runner known to man where I can amass weapons, bps, and whatever else I want without encumbering it I was truly pissed off, so not only do I now have a Giga to raise over the next few hrs, I also have a poopty Rex to raise and get back to 100% imp, at least I can be choosy about the colour this time; shall I go Yellow, Red, Dark Red, Green, Pink, White or Cyan?
  15. Last night - nothing. Didn't get to log on as it was my works Christmas party. Some young American Girl working over here in the good old UK decided that I was English and she likes English accents. I did try telling her that she was surrounded by Englishmen as she was working and living in England but that didn't seem to give her the message. Bless her, she told me her life story of how she is from Kansas City, she was 19 years old and that living here in the UK was such an experience. After an hour I finally managed to politely explain that I was nearly twice her age, married with a beautiful daughter, and her response was 'you are so sweet, don't ever go changing will you'. I managed to escape after that by giving her my roulette chips and went on my way
  16. Were you near the ocean by any chance as it could have been destroyed by a Leeds as they love eating those boats if they spawn on Rag, not sure on that one.
  17. Lead him out into the water, otherwise just run him down the beach into a pack of trikes as the Carnos are super aggressive. You could find a high ledge and snipe him down Alternatively get on a flier and hover at a point where you hit him but he cant hit you. Last night I decided to give my tribemate a surprise by filling our base with snow owls and gachas. When he logged in, it was to 17 Gachas in the cryo fridge and 9 snow owls surrounding our current two gachas which are out giving us lots of metal He had to double count and then he told me that 9 was enough now unless they are 135+'s and thats when I told him there are never any 135+'s What a spoilsport... i was just going to carry on filling our base with snow owls Went back to the Center and bred a few eggs ready for the weekend.
  18. Another weekend came, and another went by... very quickly. Extinction was an absolute dog this weekend, no rollbacks or crashes but was utterly unplayable as it was lagging horrendously. The servers are just not capable of hosting 70/70 players. So we bred on Center and went tribute hunting for an Alpha run next weekend. Basi hunting got slightly distracted as we saw a 145 Alpha Rex and as we were both on our 300 Bary's thought it would be a great laugh trying to take that down. Our Barys have 700 md and about 6k hp but with decent asc saddles we just kept running round in circles dragging it off the beach in the water and chomped away. It took a while to get it down but we both lost about 1k hp so were never in any danger... but boy was it fun Can you say that you have taken down an Alpha Rex 145 on a Bary? We did pop on ext last night as we have some Gacha and Snow Owl orders to fulfill - 3 sets to be precise and duly tamed up 3 Gachas (2 oil which was what people on my Center server are after) and tamed 3 low level owls. Its a decent server and we all help each other out so I was happy to go tame a few up even if the server was behaving like a rubber band. Nothing else too major to report... Just the Alpha Rex kill
  19. Take a Doed, and take out the lampposts and benches around the city - this should help you run your enforcer and to save up for more - good luck I logged on last night to continue my search for my Enforcer - the bringer of doom. Ok, so not really a bringer of doom but a fun little mechanised robot that I really really want. I fly around on my argy, and kill a few around the city. I manage to trade 1k dust for a pair of crypods and make plans to go tame a few gachas - hoping for the elusive dust Gacha - spoiler alert - I didnt get one After around my 20th enforcer kill, I get a 140 come along. I take it out with high hopes. As I jump down to collect the bobbling package, I already see its only apprentice - meh and its a 132. As I pick it up I was actually quite impressed with the stats - and how cheap?!! Off the top of my head it was 125% HP, 60 S, 85 E, 85 W, 75 MD. It only cost 1727 dust, 100 poly, 200 metal, 50 oil and came out roughly 2100 HP, 1100 S, 345 E, 1100 W and 202 MD so I was impressed with how cheap it was. I gave it a makeover with flame red, blue and black and went out for a blast in the wasteland killing everything I saw. So even though it was only an apprentice - its on par with my tribemates MC and Asc enforcers so I am a happy ARKadian. I podded up 2 more Gachas - both were metal and the normal production types but I hadnt seen raw salt before so that was new - no element Gacha though. It was a good night
  20. Last night I had already resigned myself for playing just the 1hr as I am far too tired at work just now. I logged on Ext and flew around the city looking the holy grail of an enforcer BP. Found a 135 and it was an MC with 120 Health but only 50% damage - killed about 40 in the hr but nothing of any use - claimed a lot of dust though. I started off on my Ptera but I started to realise quite quickly that the higher lvl enforcers start to cause some proper damage after 2 or three fights so I went back and got my new argy out - also gets the healing buff from eating doesnt it so it made more sense. The hr flew by, so tonight I'll be out again... think I would like at least 110% Health and 75+% damage - not sure how rare this would be - also needs to be a lvl 120+ really.
  21. Last night I logged on to see what tribemate had been doing - making gas and a shed ton of it too. We wont be needing any CP or Gas on our Center map now for ages. He had also got himself a nice Enforcer so I was quite jealous. Even though I play a lot, I rarely get a lot of solid time on ARK so taming for me is usually only done when its 2x or if I get a 4-5hr session. I was just flying around killing enforcers for my own nice BP when a 120 Argy flew past, decided to take it down and tribemate came over and helped. During the melee of it all (Ext has big lag)I got tranqed by my tribemate and was slowly just about to drop. I didnt and we got the bugger down. Now this was meant to be an early night for me, but I decided I would stay up for the whole 2hrs and tame it on prime - came out at 167 which will be better than my current level 35 which is now level 130. I wont need much more - an enforcer and my argy and Ill be set until they allow transfers. Still didnt get a decent enforcer BP but it will come.
  22. I probably spent more hrs on ARK this weekend than I have in possibly the last month - it was a busy one thats for sure. After the loss of our snow owl late last week, we went on the hunt for one. I had a 135 following me back to the trap whilst on my Argy. Then a player from [][][][][] tribe decided to come and take it off me - so not right but what can I do. I tried killing the 135 off so if I couldnt have it, they couldnt either but then as they were on a snow owl they kept healing it up. I gave up, didnt have time to play silly buggers. We got three low level snow owls tamed up and then saw a Magnananathingy. It was stuck so tranqed it down and tamed it up. Then it just vanished... so headed up high to look for it and there it was stuck in the ceiling/dome of the biome - put it on follow didnt work, dropped a tribemate on it with a parachute - didnt work. Then a snow storm came and it was gone, totally lost sight. It hasnt died in tribe log yet but clueless as to where it is. With new snow owls, went out for some gachas and tamed 4 or 5 up - no dust Gacha but a few with red crystal, oil, black pearl, silk, blue crystal, green crystal and metal which was good. Ill try this week for more but I wont get the time in the evenings much. Other than that, started raising some more Boss Rexes, Tek raptor and started on my 310 Ptera line again so Ill hopefully make some mroe progress. I gave some new players (the ones I gave our Rexes to) a set of Thylas as I am trying to clear out the last gen dinos. Oh, and did an Alpha run which went smoothly but it takes an age to get all the Spino sails on Center - urrgh! So with the exception of the buggy Mag, it was a decent weekend.
  23. Most useful dino... depends at what stage of the game. End game - Rexes, start of new game - Argy. When i start on a map, I like to get a flier, I want to be able to see the areas around me and Argies give me something to get meat/prime, carry a lot of res, keep me safe from the nasties below and allow me to craft, so for me are a really good first tame. Its great getting your first anky, or doed, but without an Argy to take the Anky/Doed to rich veins, it can still be a long grind to get anywhere.
  24. I logged on Center last night and put out some more Rexes from the cryo fridges. Put some meat in 3 normal troughs and let the 6 Rexes and 2 Argies have a feast together. Then logged onto Ext as I havent done much there the last few days... ITS DEAD!! Our lovely Snow Owl (granted it was a low level) had starved to death It had only been 2 days so not sure how that happened. Feeling a little sad I turned my attention to finding an enforcer BP that is reasonable - went and roamed the whole city as there were meteor strikes ongoing so decided to stay safe, not one raptoring enforcer. I was really getting angry by then. Tribemate was out taming some low level sarcos so went and assisted by bringing him some narco's or blackberries as he calls them - bless. He had down an 80 and with no kibble hadnt realised it would be a 3hr tame - haha. Found him a lvl 5 female and that was still gonna take over an hr on just meat. We killed a load of Megalas from around his 3 unconcious sarcos and then I decided enough was enough and logged off and went to bed. I guess a snow owl is the mission this weekend poor ickle Snow Owl.
