      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

      TLC Update - Ragnarok 'Puzzle' Cave.   03/20/18

        In our most recent Ragnarok Update, the puzzle cave was revised so that it would no longer allow survivors to build within it. Due to this change, player structures found in this location were removed and some dinos became stuck. We will not be rolling back our servers at this time. We would like to keep rollbacks limited to major service-wide disruptions going forward due to complications caused by CrossARK and Tribes (part of being a multi-server persistent open-world survival game). Later today, we'll be rolling a server update which will allow survivors to build in this area for an additional week so that players can move their creatures via a transmitter or teleporter. After the 27th of March, this will no longer be possible so please use this time to remove your creatures swiftly. Console players, please use this time to move out any creatures or structures you have in this cave because once the update hits, you'll no longer be able to do so! Thank you for your patience and ongoing support, survivors!

  1. This is probably the most fantastic Unofficial PVP server I have seen on here. An actual PVP server that lets players engage in PVP without some mandatory hand holding rules that limit what you can do. A true PVP server. I have become so used to going onto a PVP server and then being faced with a wall of text listing a hundred different rules on PVP, most of them nonsensical and impossible to enforce such as "when raiding you can't damage the enemy excessively". In contrast your rules are well defined and basically only ban what I would call various forms of cheating. The cap on tribe numbers and no alliance is true PVP bliss. It's a shame Official servers have not got a similar tribe cap and done away with alliances, as they have become rather stale as a result. I wish you all the best in running the server, hopefully it becomes popular.
  2. Turret Nerf

    If your going to talk realism then I have to ask you when did humans and dinos co-exist? You see bringing realism into this is rather pointless.
  3. Turret Nerf

    They need to halve the amount of crap players can build on servers. The current limit is 6000 or so which is very high. If they set it to 3000 players could still make reasonably large bases without affecting the server performance not nearly as much. Secondly for eggs they should add 'dino egg chambers' which would work like the sleeping pod but instead of XP they would release eggs like a vending machine. Except each could hold a few dinos the more being in the chamber the greater the chance of it dropping an egg. The chambers would require food to stop the dinos inside from starving but other that that they could be anywhere in the base as a structure.
  4. Turret Nerf

    I would support a reduction in player speed if it was paired with a large reduction in tamed dino stats. Most high level tamed dinos upwards from a wolf can easily one shot most players. There is little balance in that. Throw in breeding and it gets even worse. If there was more balance between a player on foot and some clown on a dino then I'd be in favour of reducing speed but atm that is all ground pounder have to survive.
  5. question on new Arkpocalypse servers

    I agree the start of ARK is almost the most fun. When you have a small base and your raiding other bases for anything they've got. When you get a big base with heaps of turrets and dinos it becomes a bit of a chore as well as a liability. The bigger your base the more you stand to lose as such the game loses its fun. These apocalypse clusters seem to be a good alternative to the mundane regular ARK but I wonder if they will limit tribe sizes because other wise mega/alpha tribes of 30 players will continue to dominate unchecked. Secondly while I agree with these kind of servers that wipe every month you need faster resource collecting I think that being able to tame a 150 giga in 30minutes would pretty much invalidate every other dino. If that is the case then when it comes to dinos there won't be a lot of variety in what players are using. Giga, T Rex, Quetzal, Squid, Griffin will be the dominant ones even very early on in the game at a time when players should be working their way up to those by using the early and mid tier dinos.
  6. Help Save Legacy!

    Oh no dead empty servers are being deleted. The horror, how dare they! I'm in favour of deleting all of them. People need to move on, times change, the game changes and you can't sit around forever in your dream world hogging an entire server for yourself. It is completely unrealistic. At least they are giving you the option to download your virtual palaces so you can recreate them in all their splendour in single player While they are it I wish they would remove 50% of the PVP servers. The majority of them now peak at 10 players tops. Delete them and force the players into more populated servers. The result would be better PVP for all.
  7. So how do people find me so easily?

    If you are playing on Official servers and your fairly certain no one is using cheats/ESP (which is unlikely anyway) then the most likely reason you are being found in the middle deep, dark comes down to a few game settings and tricks. One is that your base has become large enough that is depleted an area of trees making it very easy to spot from the air ie a strange clearing in the middle of the forest. The only real solution to this is to build a small base. The second is that a good PVP player will be using low GFX which is actually a flaw in the design of the game. Unfortunately this game doesn't reward you at all for running it like in the trailers, having the game look pretty will only impede your ability to win PVP fights. Basically if you put your graphics to low and in particular view distance to low and use certain launch commands you can essentially remove shadows and leaves from the game. In addition given enough range trees will render without branches and rocks won't render at all. Basically any harvest/destructible resource won't render. The effect of this is you could be hiding behind a big rock and a guy a long distance away will see you just standing there as if you are out in the open. He won't be able to spyglass you nor shoot you but none the less he knows where you are. The third possibly explanation is by using the broken "K Mode/Vanity Camera" to look under the map. This mode makes it very easy to spot hidden bases when you are rather close and the above options don't work. Any base's foundations will clearly show as will players and tames. The only way Wildcard could successfully fix these issues would be to declare that there is no valid reason why someone should be trying to run our game on a computer from 2005 or earlier and therefore low render distance isn't a valid option. This might marginally impact their sales though so they probably won't do it. K Mode though can definitely be fixed if they try. They could always just disable it for PVP servers since its basically a PVE feature anyway. Anyways these issues have been in the game since day 1 so don't hold your breathe on them getting fixed anytime soon.
  8. Ark Isn't Just Dying, It's Being Murdered

    There are a lot of videos on Youtube lately where the creator tries be as pessimistic as they can about popular games. I don't know if its a trend as such but it seems to be just another way to earn quick $$$ by tacking on a sensationalist headline and then ranting for 10 minutes about everything bad in a game and saying the world is going to burn. Most of them only know the most basic and widespread facts on the games they rant about, something you could collect from reading a review for a minute as opposed to playing the game for any significant amount of time.
  9. Ark Isn't Just Dying, It's Being Murdered

    That video is nothing but sensationalist bullcrap. The narrator spends the majority of the video talking about ARK's history instead of actually focusing on the current which is what it is meant to be about. When he finally does get to the current he launches into a rant full of hyperbole and nonsense. I finally turned it off when he called players engaging in PVP on Official servers "greifers" and said that they are "toxic". It is clear he is just another little safe space gamer that can't handle actual competition and danger and wants to be coated in bubble wrap. In terms of the developers there seems to be a lot of genuine hate lately on here for the developers and while they have made lot of mistakes particularly with releasing paid DLC in Early Access, going easy on cheaters and not working on reducing the effects of mega tribes on the game. If however you compare their deeds and actions to other Early Access developers they generally come off in a better light. I have been trying Conan Exiles again recently and that is a game where the developers need to be lined up and shot. The developers in that game are truly pathetic and make the ARK devs look like gaming professors. For instance in that game even though its releasing in 2 months time there is still a commonly occurring bug where when you shoot your bow no arrow is actually fired. It makes all the sounds, does the animation but no arrow is actually fired and the enemy takes no damage. Now can you imagine ARK having a bug like that and the Devs still not being able to fix it for over 5 months? The ARK devs are not perfect by any means but clearly there is some real crap floating around out there in the dev world. We are fortunate that the ARK devs are well above average. My one gripe with this game is the growth of mega tribes in PVP. If you ask me the whole alliance thing since it was introduced has negatively impacted on the game. Players are holding hands more then they are fighting. In 2015 when I first got the game a week after launch, PVP was genuinely much better. Everyone was fighting everyone and boring OP flying dinos weren't really a thing just yet. If you ask me and I've said this many times before but I think tribe size should be limited to 10, alliances disabled on Official servers and the amount of Official servers reduced to cram everyone into the remaining servers. This would foster much better and active PVP.
  10. Raft TLC and C4 Nerf

    You must be new to the game Jumbo because this trick has been around since forever. It can't be fixed unless they add proper collisions to structures on platforms which they won't do and even then since the turret can't hit the driver it would still work. The only solution would be to make the rafts take damage from the turret bullets which could be viable since technically they are treated as a dino by the game. Also its not just rafts you can use this trick on. If anyone is so foolish as to build their base near the water then yes it works for that also
  11. I'll start by saying that my opinion is probably going to be highly unpopular but I'll say it anyway. There are too many Official PVP servers and not enough players to support them. I have played this game since it was released in 2015 and I can remember fondly back then the servers were full to the brim 70/70 each night. You would walk 50m on a server and you would bump into someone and get into a vicious fight. In 2018 though things are very different. I go in the server browser and hit filter by players and I see that there a 4 servers have more then 30 players in it and then I see a long list of over a 100 servers with none of them having more then 15 with most not evening having 5. The game currently has 5 Official maps (Island, Center, Ragnorok, Scorched Earth, Aberration) and there are supposedly plans to add another unofficial map as an Official map on top of the unreleased DLC that will soon be coming out. I am a bit concerned what will happen when these two new maps come out because the ARK community is already highly divided. The release of Aberration hasn't improved things in that regard. A lot of servers that were borderline dead are now actually dead due to the big migrations to Aberration. The Scorched Earth servers have been pretty dead for a while especially since Ragnorak made them redundant. I have to wonder is there a valid reason to keep so many of these dead servers around? All these dead servers make for bad PVP since the players are spread thin everywhere and all that typically happens is you get the occasional night raider come to your server but that's no fun since your not there to fight them. The daily PVP on your server is no longer a thing since there is no one to fight. I would like to suggest the Wildcard merge/move dead servers so that overall there is less servers and players have to play on the more limited ones available thus making for better PVP since there will be more interactions between players on servers.
  12. Evolution events do contribute to a decline in players during the week and I agree there isn't much incentive to tame dinos during the week. That said if taken away a lot of players would probably stop playing all together. I would be favour of raising the Official rates to 2x permanently. Its pretty extreme to expect players to spend 6 hours taming an Anklo or Doed on Aberration or any creature for that matter. This would be good for PVP since players and tribes can build up faster after getting wiped. As well less time required for farming is more time for slaughter.
  13. Getting Started on Official?

    Most won't take direct applications. You can just join a server, type a few words in global and expect to be recruited. Most tribes will wait till you have been on that server for at least a month and get to know you a bit better before even considering it. The biggest threat to Alpha tribes these days is rarely other Alphas its people insiding them.
  14. What's your favorite thing about TLC phase 1?

    Previously useless dinos now having some kind of use even if its very niche. Also the newly balanced Giga should make PVP fights more interesting rather then just coming down to who has the most Gigas.
  15. Surface Access Blocking - PvP

    Not against any Official rule as far as I am aware. I'd submit a ticket for abuse of powers for that GM, he is clearly in the wrong.
