Flak Armor

Flak Armor (4/5)



  1. I can't turn almost at all. I can only destroy like 3 or 4 things so I can't even get the points to open everything up. On controller you can't even touch the left stick. I've read a million just keep the reticle centered but then how do I get the health power ups? I do not play these types of games. I did not like Star Wars, Star Fox, Need for Speed, Gran Turismo, or anything that resembles them. For a game based on tribe success and promoted as such for the last 5 years and then in the final chapter they remove that component. It makes little sense. You know what I'm good at? Having the time to tame, farm, and breed what we would need for that fight. That's my strength for the tribe. Hell, I'm even going to do that so that they can still get it done but it's definitely a gut shot I'll never get it done. 19 times, 0 improvement from the 1st one and that's only Gamma. Lol.
  2. I don't need therapy for playing Ark. I work my 40 hours and pay my bills, see family and friends monthly, and play the game. What else should I do? Watch sports? Who cares. Watch movies and shows? I do. Visit places? I've been to 4 continents, 10 countries, and 23 states in my lifetime. I've seen enough places. Read books? I've read plenty and if something pops up that interests me, I'll read that too. So what am I missing?
  3. I have roughly 17k hours in this game since March of 2017. I have endured the bugs and official headaches and loved all of it. I left Legacy for the promise of fixed issues and despite many issues persisting continued through it all because there was always ways around any issue. Tribemates, allies, kind souls. I started Ark with the mission to beat the bosses and that is where my focus was. I did some top stat breeding to pass the time but ultimately every metal node I crushed, penguin I clubbed, cave I ran, dino I raised and imprinted was with the aim at beating the bosses and I largely succeeded. Island, checked with my tribes own work and no carries. Ab checked with my tribes own work and no carries. Extinction checked with my tribes own work and no carries. The idea behind Genesis intrigued me and brought me back out of retirement. I had taken a 6 month break before I knew Genesis was a thing, logging off a level 134 homo deus, having the top weight Argy's on PS4. I loved the mission base ideas and joined up with old legacy buddies to conquer that part of Ark. Poor design plagued many a survivor but ultimately, tribed, everybody had their strengths and we were able to pull together to get Alpha MC done. The benefits of a tribe were shown especially in the run up to that boss. Today after my 19th attempt, I realized I will never be able to complete Gamma Star Dolphin. I don't play racing games. I don't play with invert. I don't play with a mouse and keyboard. If I wanted and could play that way I would play a racing game designed to be a racing game on PC. I have a tribemate who can do those things but since I need the mission done myself to participate in the fight it leaves me in the position of a level 155 survivor with nothing to work towards. We have pretty good Shadowmane line starting (8.5k hp with 0 mutes and 461 melee after 4 mutes) but what will be the purpose of continuing that project if I can't use them to fight Rockwell? Including race missions, which have nothing to do with any other thing you do in this creature taming and breeding, map exploring, survival game, is bad enough but then to discount the whole notion of tribes playing off each others strengths to get the goal done is just a huge dumbfounding decision. So here it ends I suppose. I'm not looking for sympathy (well maybe a little). I'm not looking for advice. I am just venting my frustration. Bring on your troll comments. I may even come back to see them. I am just extremely irritated that my last 3k hours in this game goes out with a whimper after being thee survivor after my first 14k.
  4. Transfer times should be the same as every other new map. Around 3 months to bring stuff in. That hasn't really altered much in the last almost 4 years (only counting since official launch).
  5. I have personally searched on Island, Ab, and Extinction. I have had discussions with people who have looked on Valguero and Crystal Isles. There are no bee hives to be found on official PvE servers. Please fix
  6. 3x breeding encompasses raising. It's Easter event. Black isn't an Easter color.
  7. You don't know her role. Maybe her character relates to Helena pre-island and she is shown only through flashbacks. Maybe Helena was an awful and selfish person until she met the caring humanitarian, Victoria, who taught her how to be compassionate to others. Maybe that compassion and the flash back references are what allow Helena to be the intermediary she is/was. We won't know until the show airs.
  8. That doesn't make them money. That would be poor business. SE is the prime example of that. Everything was put on Rag, people stopped paying for the map even when they tried to make the map an easier experience. Drakes and Reapers still make Ab a viable purchase.
  9. While I'm not overly bothered by the delay, as it is expected at this point, this comment from you is pretty dumb. I paid money to someone who promised me a working game. That contract entitles me to voice my concerns when they are not holding up their end of the deal. That's called consumer rights. Feel free to keep your displeasures to yourself but if I want to voice mine, I've paid for that right.
  10. Events usually end at a specific time so if the next imprint won't be before event ends, cryo it immediately after the last imprint you'll definitely get during the event. Even if the event ends up running a little longer, better to not risk it.
  11. Weird. I got them on single player. Do you have HLNA equipped? Are you sure you're going to the right spots? Scar Bridge, Around each of the Obs, and near that pointy rock formation.
  12. "Individuals commit the sunk cost fallacy when they continue a behavior or endeavor as a result of previously invested resources (time, money or effort) (Arkes & Blumer, 1985). This fallacy, which is related to loss aversion and status quo bias, can also be viewed as bias resulting from an ongoing commitment." https://www.behavioraleconomics.com/resources/mini-encyclopedia-of-be/sunk-cost-fallacy/#:~:text=Individuals commit the sunk cost,Arkes %26 Blumer%2C 1985).&text=For example%2C individuals sometimes order,“get their money's worth”. People invested so much time into this game during beta and then invested a bunch of time once official release always with promises of fixes plus new additions to the story it became basically infeasible to quit. A few got away permanently. Many got away but only briefly because the game landscape, in this genre especially, is bleak. Games in general are often linear and get boring. Ark gives you more options than most. Also the classification of a survival game just doesn't measure up. Day Z, Rust. Those play more as First Person Shooters or Battle Royales than survival. Ark is true survival because you can lose everything even when not on. That appeals too many. Due to all of this and realizing the fixes will only trickle in, people use cynicism as a defense mechanism when someone complains about this Stockholm Syndrome of a game.
  13. Someone spawned the Ice Titan 8 minutes beforehand. Lol. I figured someone might so I brought along my Mek and a few people brought Giga's so we killed it in 4 minutes but still, so toxic. Lol
  14. The Spring Event (Easter) is probably my favorite just because of the colors. I'm a Cyan guy in this game and that's when they pop the most. Fear Evolved probably is number 2 because there is more activities to do if you choose. Christmas irrirates me. I don't want to fight over the gifts so unless the server pop is down to 5, I just tame or breed.
  15. Please allow. In Extinction they gave you the ability to craft these amazing and expensive tek suits and then said, "but they are basically useless on the Genesis map." Which based upon the open world missions made some sense. Gen 2 missions are closer to boss fights, if I understood correctly, where they take place in their own environments so like boss fights just disable the suits in there. I want to fly like Superman on the Giant Space Tek Station in my crafted tek suit.
