      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. Kill all passive tames.

    No, but again. It's a farm server. Why would we need it to be indefinitely when we can do the same to max pop server in a week with what we have farmed for in the current farm server.. Fun fact.. when the server is empty.. defences are pointless. 6 forges on some stone foundations is easy.. takes an hour.. why would we care if they re purpose our forges mate.. Darkelite. It partially is people like you that cause the bigger tribes to focus us solos.. a bit of advice.. put your door back on and move. Then hit them back. They hit your empty building for nothing. More of them than you makes it not in your advantage in some ways.. but.. people like them.. when you trade a few hours for a few of their tames.. their moral gets hurt. When you do it enough.. some will rage quit. And when they do.. the others will too. Simply put. Groups become weak because they are used to numbers. When you lower their numbers.. they often try to get you to join them just so they are safe from you. When you refuse.. they WILL eventually go away
  2. Kill all passive tames.

    SmokeyB is right. Dead server is a server you can knock out 12 pteras and farm your metal at a 2x2 foundation only forge/smithy no walls setup. You need an edge when megas are hunting you. Dead servers are the edge.
  3. Kill all passive tames.

    A 30 man tribe doesn't help much either friend. People just need to be shown that. On server 274 fire nation believed this would protect them. Killed their Griffen and they retaliate by showing up with 2 other people.. a wyv.. and.. um.. like how that gonna help? I tried to pick a few times and left. They lost Griff.. I lost nothing. Sorry guys.. maybe your 50 man tribe will revive your griffen.. 3 people wouldn't even chase me into the woods because scared I would get them alone. I will change their mindset. I will show them the errors of their ways while using their tames to feed my pteras
  4. Why the complaints about official pvp

    Just wanted to post another story. Was on Xbox official 274. Uploading my c4 and other gears. A Griffen flys in landing as I jumped in ptera. I pick him. Drop rider. He proceeds to talk too much.. He was in a big tribe.. figured it was his right I guess. Rip passive Griffen. Him and 2 others show up.. proceed to pick them and try to lead them into cover of the woods where 1v3 feels better than in the open. They wouldn't chase.. You in a big tribe.. and you refuse to leave the open while 1 guy on a ptera harrasses you? LOL FIRE NATION go to pve friend. We coming for them passives man. We need the easy meat farm, it's rough in the snow.. we appreciate your assistance with keeping us from starving out there. Btw.. hate people who think they are untouchable due to massive numbers. It just makes it more fun.. instead of making a pve tribe of 3 rage.. I'll be making a mega tribe rage.. it's much more rewarding.
  5. So after my time on ARK I've decided a few things. The BIGGEST problem that players make.. is the server settings they chose. They join PvP server thinking they want to be on a PvP server, yet they complain when they are killed by others.. they complain that they get raided.. There is only 2 reasons to play a PvP server.. 1 you plan to kill/raid someone without their permission 2 you wish to play with a friend that wants to kill/raid someone without their permission. Either way.. how can you complain when someone better comes and does it to you? How is that justifiable? Why not play pve where you need to agree to PvP? I love when alpha sets a rule of no killing passives. THIS is official pvp. I will do what I want. We need to clean these servers up of the wanna be pvpers. They are bad. They don't want to PvP. So why not show them the errors in their ways? If your with me.. kill their passives. Kill their campfires and unlocked storage boxes. I'm tired of hearing "why you kill me" on an official PvP server. Teach these baddies they don't want pvp. Tell them to go to pve server where they belong. UPDATE- have gotten rid of a tribe of 3 pve players who thought they were pvpers. The story - I knocked out a pteranadon on a mid population server. I am laying in the bushes awaiting my new tame to finish up. As I lay there in the cold night I spot a raft with fires and forges running. At first the raft past the location of my pteranadon. Then it stops. All of a sudden they jump out and run to my pteranadon killing it. (My character has 160 move speed) I decided retaliate. After killing one of them with my fab pistol I use for alpha hunting they ran towards there raft. I made a quick judgement call.. they were going to escape if I didnt act quickly. I had farmed some grenades to raid someone.. I decided to grenade their raft before they could get to their raft. To my knowledge, I thought it would be a waste. But after killing them and getting killed by there saber and wolf.. I ran back to discover.. this raft was a raft that was prepared to raid. I got my grenades upgraded to c4. I killed a saber and wolf (by the looks of it either kibble or prime tamed and leveled up) These kids thought they wanted to PvP when they didn't. RIP pvers
  6. I would agree with some but not all of this. I loved sotf. But it is not the only way to PvP. They have made it very easy to get gear without putting in time (looking at you wooden club/bola) that's not even counting scorched engrams.. not to mention how easy it is to prime tame something when there are alphas getting stuck.. any "competitive" game.. time is an advantage. If you waste time you will most likely lose no matter how good you are. Ark has made it easy to counter lack of time. Anybody can get on once a day to reset their ark data time.. you don't ever actually even need a base if I'm being honest. Get kill.. loot.. use what you want.. put rest in data.. then whenever you get on to PvP you have gear waiting. To be honest the people like you that think.. let me spend this 5 hours of time taming these useless Dino's that aren't going to protect me when I'm offline or let me build this base bla bla.. your doing it wrong man. If you can't be online more than offline why build a base? If your going for PvP what's the point of base at all? It doesn't help you.. it makes you an easy target. You will never be able to out build the guy that has the same time as you that spends it on raiding you.. that is ark. But you people. The people who build.. I love you.. without you guys.. I wouldn't have your raided bases to repair my gear <3
  7. I agree with much of this. However, some of it can be avoided. The main and 2ndary servers I play on have bully alpha that keeps server to themselves. I do have 2 characters 1 main and a farming character. My farming character is also the taming character. My main is my PvP/main base. I transfer to high population servers to pvp. Due to politics I am safe from both for now. The enemies I make by transferring and killing have come to look for me. So far they get killed by the tribe that has claimed the server. Haven't found my farming character base yet anyway.
  8. For obvious reasons it is nice to have a server to yourself.. afk taming.. leaving Dino's outside.. never being killed.. this is what some alphas attempt. You just need to play politics a bit. I'm on such a server. Where alpha wipes any base they find. Yet not mine? They have been to my main base (I hide my stuff just in case) yet I'm the only person I know of that isn't ever touched. I've been longnecked before. They apologize and move on. Why? Politics. It's as simple as letting them know of high end wilds. You see a 150? Let them know. Find a missing dino? Let them know. Find a bp that you know they could make better with their crafting character? Offer them the bp if they make it for you. These are all VERY easy to do and you are generally rewarded for it. It's such a simple thing.. I've even had tribes of other servers come to find me. They get kosed by my servers alpha and are unable to find my hidden 2x2 or even my separate dino pens..
  9. This.. lol. I bought the game on steam when it was 20 bucks. I've been in 3 tribes for about a month each time. So totaling 3 months. Give or take a month. Other than that I've played solo. I would like to start by questioning your logic. If I'm hiding in the woods with a gun. If there are 50 people in those same woods looking for me.. well no duh bro.. you won't be able to hide. That is your problem. You assume that to fight the alpha or mega you have to do it all on their server. This is where you went wrong friend.. the possibility of transferring items, characters and tames completely shuts down your argument. You aren't supposed to be able to hide from 50 people on their server man. That's why you base in one server tame in another then pick them off on theirs just to retreat again back to yours. Please tell me how they can find you with my technique. The problem is how you are attempting to accomplish your goal. Just this morning I uploaded 3 iguanadons and 20 c4 to the oblisk. Guess what I did tonight. I got 3 iguanadons killed and blew up a bunch of their stuff. Sure they know where I tamed the iguanadons. But let's see if you were paying attention. Will they find me? Just adding, no I alone did not wipe the mega. But due to my attack a few other tribes stepped up and took advantage of the alpha members chasing me down. Nearly all their xplants and turrets are now gone. They have no choice but to rebuild. They can't afford to continue attacking. Due to my 3 hours or so of farming I cost them days. This is the problem with many new players. You think that tribes are invincible. You think they can shut you down no matter what. When reality.. the bigger they are the easier they can be found. And of they can be found they can be inconvenienced. It's all about effort.
  10. Try getting some Decent Coding to beat dupers

    The only people who would complain about this is A. People who are exploiting a server crash or B. People who bought the game and let someone who exploited the dupe get them banned. Either way is still a win in my book. Should be more careful of who plays your games.
  11. Try getting some Decent Coding to beat dupers

    If I get killed and looted for my pants. Then that person killed and looted for my same pants. The person who looted it can see that I crafted those pants. You can't tell me they can't find the liscense attached to a ddos. The ONLY fix is to swing that ban hammer. 60 bucks Everytime 15 mins to try to prevent something you were already able to do. That's a win in my book. How many ddos attacks would really happen then.
