      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.

      Official PC: Hard Turret Limit begins on 18th of February at 1PM ET   02/16/18

      On the 18th of February, at 1PM ET we will be enabling the hard turret limit on all PC Official Servers. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius. This will work on autoturrets, heavy turrets, tek turrets, plus plant turrets and is no longer map specific. The hard limit calculation is done on start-up, so if your turrets are ever over the limit, they will be randomly shut-off until you're under the limit. In order to restore shut off turrets, you must pick up any which exceed the number, as well as shut-off turrets and replace them in order for them to work.

  1. thylas Devs Ruin thylas... -_-

    The game is as complete now as it was before you noticed the change.
  2. The island and high lvl Dino's...

    You don't say.
  3. Dino TLC: Feedback! Suggestions?

    I'd kind of like to see a Beelzebufo attack that deals less damage and more torpor. Same for the scorp.
  4. The island and high lvl Dino's...

    Kill them all. The more of a certain dino you kill, the more likely you are to find more of the same dino at higher levels as you continue searching. Usually I'll clear out sections of the map, go to another part of the map and clear that one out, and then go back to the first place and look again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
  5. Valentine's Day Fail :(

    Yeah. Damn those stupid calendar makers for putting February 14th on a Wednesday. I think we should protest the calendar making companies. Bunch of fun-ruining buttheads!!
  6. ark ROLE PLAY

    Usually that's frowned upon. Most RP servers on PC at this point are cool with PvP, but there are rules to it. Any PvP has to be done in-character and have RP reasons, which technically would cover doing what you described...but some servers are more open to the wanton-violence RPPvP than others. If you're playing a character who doesn't speak and runs around robbing and killing, you might not last too long on the server...even if it's technically in-character. Most of the RP I've done has been great, but I prefer the funny stuff, sciencing, and blowing up of things. I'm not much for the long-term and drawn out dramatic and romantic role play stuff...more for the improv aspect.
  7. Yacht-sized clown colored sand worms? That's the stuff nightmares are made out of. Lordy.
  8. "I'm going to quit the game if you stop giving me free extra stuff that I was never promised!"
  9. Ark hates pvp players...

    Thank you for posting what they said and telling us that they said it. Was it simply by accident that you chose the perfect WC quote to contradict your own original assertion?
  10. Too Many Servers / Player Fragmentation

    Do you buy your rose colored sunglasses in bulk? Unpopular opinion is an understatement, lol.
  11. This argument has multiple sides. The point I am making is that in the past most of the people who felt like official rates were too low left for unofficial, where they could play with the settings they prefer. Many others seem to prefer staying on official. Many of those official players seem to enjoy mocking unofficial players for not playing the "real" game whilst demanding changes to official to make it more like unofficial. If you were to narrow this argument down to its fundamental core, it's about cognitive dissonance.
  12. When I left Officials (for a few reasons) I found that I prefer 4-5x servers. For me it's the perfect balance...higher than that seems cheesy, less than that feels grindy. At that time official rates were 0.5x their current setting. That official rate was doubled, and now people want it doubled again permanently. Compared to when I left them, official rates are now the equivalent of 4x...which coincidentally is the exact same rate that I originally left Official rates behind for. So let's say Wildcard caved. How long before people start demanding bonus weekends on top of that? 4-5x is still enough for me, so what will be enough for the official players making these demands? How many times is Wildcard going to have to boost the rates on official? Perma 2x? 3x? Perma 5x with 2x weekends and 3x holidays? Then maybe an extra 2x as compensation when the evo events aren't on time? Will that get people to stop demanding higher rates?
  13. Major Update at key playtime nice one

    You're right. It's not rocket science. It also wouldn't be rocket science for you to consider the fact that people have been lambasting Blizzard for their update and maintenance scheduling for at very least over a decade. Don't pretend like it's all rainbows and butterfly farts over there (or any game forum) when it comes to the topic of update scheduling. It's the same in every game that has regular updates. It's not rocket science. The problem isn't that certain developers push updates/maintenance at the wrong time, the problem is with customers who assume the world revolves around them and no one else. They say dumb things like "But it's inconvenient for me. Change it so it's inconvenient for someone else!" almost as if they assume no one else will complain if the time is moved. Basically inconvenienced customers are - in many cases aggressively - demanding that others be inconvenienced instead...seemingly under the assumption that the new inconvenienced won't be as irrational about it as they are. Is it rocket science yet?
  14. I think so. Frankly, I've thought the bonus weekends were a dumb idea since day one. There are WAY too many gamers who simply aren't mature enough to grasp that they aren't entitled to a bonus. Similarly, I'm of the opinion that the "I require a bonus on official servers every weekend or I'll quit" mindset is flat out dumb. If you're only willing to play the game with boosted rates, go play on servers with boosted rates like the rest of us who don't want to invest the kind of time required on official servers. Simple.
  15. That's a fine looking Rex...but it kinda makes me feel less like a unique snowflake spending 25 generations getting that look with mutations. lol
