  1. Ab 380 PVE has been wiped.... Uhm...guys? Not a single structure, I am not in tribe aaaand I am stuck there with a main toon as there are no drops spawning. I am trying really hard not to panic assuming you will roll it all back. Please fix.
  2. Dude...you realize you are asking THE guy that made the primitive content....the guy that loves being a 'caveman' the most...to 'step out of his cave'?! I mean srsly...have you SEEN the big scary things out there???!!!
  3. Longtime player, multiple servers and even from my perspective the events are tortuous. I hung on through Ab 380 being at 155 ping each weekend and rockdrakes unflyable and trikes unusable because of it...It got better. I guess I keep hoping for improvement on Rag as well but with friends departing the server and leaving the game over these crashes and losing toons I am losing faith. The silence on behalf of Wildcard has been deafening.
  4. Rag 382 is down multiple times a day for an hour or more. So many lost eggs/babies, toons lost to rollback etc.
  5. Lol...the character lost was my second toon. I have my tribe owner max toon sitting in the cloud. But my working toon is the breeder/imprint daily use toon.
  6. This is the second time. The first was my main character...only character at the time. I am a tribe owner on Ab and on Rag and when the Game ate my toon- the exact same way first day of Xmas event no less....I would have been wiped if not for my husband having just made a toon as a placeholder for both tribes. It was THREE MONTHS before they came to 'fix' it. I had not played on my account on the server the body of my toon was disconnected on, assuming they would just reactivate her. You could physically see her..she was just link dead. I did not make a new toon because I thought that would overwrite her and all they needed to do was reconnect the character to the server or somesuch. Boy was I wrong. So after three months they came and told me sorry- make a new character we will give you increased xp up to level 105 (I believe) but not replace any of your lost engrams or boss fights. The GM that responded had absolutely no clue what they were doing. They insisted you could immediately repod cryosicked dinos...that there was no cooldown. They started assigning dinos to me one at a time...and I had hundreds of course...then 15 minutes in said they were going to lunch. I kid you not...3 months wait....15 minutes of painstakingly one by one assigning me as Tribe owner again and connecting dinos to me....then Oh hey its lunch I have to go. I waited...2 hrs or so for them to come back. They get there and immediately said ok appointment time is up I am off to another ticket...and I was WAIT! I have gigas and wyverns in cryopods- babies! Then the cryopod argument happened...and long story short they left me with a pile of babies out waiting on a timer to recryo them - they had jumped to Ab to make me tribe owner there and do those dinos... I get the babies podded and frantically jump to ab....and no GM. I waited another hour. Then thought to look at the ticket where I found the GM said "Oh hey I went to Ab and you never showed. You have to open another ticket now." They never reassigned imprints to most of my dinos...I found wyverns they said they had done still owned by the old toon after this...and not even a fraction reconnected. So I finally get the second half of the ticket and the GM (a dif one) shows for the appointment. Was like ok what do you need? I said hey I need tribe owner and dino imprints switched to me. THIS GM was a rockstar. They typed something in and wham bam I was completely reconnected and all dinos assigned to me. Under 5 minutes, ticket was done. The glaring differences between the dude that thought they had to go one by one to each dino, and that babies could be immediately repodded (they straight up argued with me until i dropped empty pods for them to do it...and they punched my babies with the cryo until they nearly killed it...lol) Entirely broken process. I have never ever played a game with such poor assistance when something goes wrong and as an old lady gamer I have played a LOT of games. The good news at the end of this process is a friend reminded me I had a disconnected (unintentional) duped toon from months ago just sitting at their base. I was able to jump on, reclaim the toon, so at least I get all the dinos imprinted to her and the babies in pods imprinted to her back. She does not have the Chibi levels or the alpha Ab fight but I'll take it. But holy HELL Wildcard...when you design a game that requires a toon to jump servers for bossfights at the very least...then know that we can lose the character in the process...you need to be FAR more conciliatory when it comes to YOUR errors. This is unacceptable...
  7. Character Loss So once again I have lost a character due to server crashes and roll backs. Full Alpha on all fights. Plus 5 levels on chibi. Max. Countless imprinted dinos. Babies being raised that can now no longer be imprinted. And so I go to make a ticket knowing I once again have lost countless hours and work and that Wildcard will not restore this stuff despite the fact they repeatedly break the game. Me starting a new toon and doing all the work- again. Is not a solution. If you are going to persist with rollbacks and breaking the servers you need to restore a toon fully. I am sick and I am extremely pissed off. How many of you have lost your main toons this event?
  8. PLEASE make dinos/imprints account bound. Having leveled several toons on different maps there is nothing more frustrating than having to figure out what cryoed dinos is imprinted to which toon. Likewise when raising dinos some are imprinted to an older toon and switching out especially during laggy events can be a horror. While there are many things I could rant on this is one small thing WC can do for us old timers who have multiple toons. Not to mention when toons are lost, there is no need to pull out a thousand dinos to switch imprints to a new toon- thus saving your GMs a huge amount of time on these tickets. Thanks!
  9. Hello again Mister Dudebro Things you get wrong: 1. I am a female not a 'lad'. Crazy concept in an internet game, amiright? Please consider your default perceptions of who peoples your gaming communities. 2.I chose to play a game on official settings- meaning the fact I am not playing on my own availability curve is part of that. If I can't spend the time to play the game per the rl time investment, I can play on unofficial at my own pace. That is NEVER a legit reason to cheat. 3. I am very bothered by a setting where a clearly defined set of rules is haphazardly applied on a whim, as should we all be, in and out of a game environment. Laws should be enforced in an even-handed manner or not at all- and the not at all bit equally communicated to everyone affected. 4. The only regulation any population can exert upon a regulating body, is to speak out against inconsistencies. Silence is consent.
  10. Wow. So now not supporting cheating and playing by the rules...and expecting that in the official server I play on....is about feeling superior and boosting folks ego? okaaaaaay..... This is simple folks. What modality is being used in the application of enforcement? The rules lay out very specifically what will happen if you break these rules, and instead the same perpetrators are pumping out several generations of babies with no action from Wildcard curtailing their activities. This is INCREDIBLY damaging to a community...especially as I personally know people who were nuked for it before. Look I am well used to these forums being about how PVE doesn't matter, and I know wading into this morass will always result in that particular flavor in responses. I love the mindset here that the rules just don't apply because 'oh well'.

  12. I have exactly 3 hours today to play the game. (This is an example by the way, not an actual measure of my time.) I can unpod these babies I have in my projects fridge and sit and hand feed them. I can also maniacally run out occasionally to grab meat so they do not die...even worse when it is not 2x. This will take several hours of my time. For babies like Gigas? It will take days of my time. OR... I can owl glitch these podded babies. Go out with friends and run drops/veins on extinction while they sit and mature without me actually doing the work. Gain all the ele I need for various projects or to buy those dinos I have my eye on that other traders are offering. Look at it another way: Hey go ahead and mine that metal ore over there as much as you like but if you use anything other than this grey metal pick we are gonna ban you for breaking our CoC. I go and happily mine my ore with the metal pick and slowly gain what I need for my projects. Player 2 decides to screw all of that grey pick mess, busts out a 700 base melee anky and goes to town on the orefield. But it's cool...it's just PVE and doesn't really impact anything important, right? You can 'not agree with dino sales' all you like. Just like you can disagree with me that chocolate is the best flavor for any cake. I don't really care about your opinion. What is important here- is if the game we are playing is administering the rules they created fairly or at all so we all have the same parameters to work from. Every player out there has the same opportunity to breed up super dinos. But I expect you to do the work and sink those thousands of hours into it I have in order to get there.
  13. You have some really odd logic constructs going on here. You don't think cheating is ok....but you are jumping into an argument to support cheating. You are saying cheating is the same as a player working hard to breed up dinos and applying colors and not giving them away for free? Your critical thinking skills need some work my friend. Owl glitching is cheating. Your words. You are then ok with the cheating epidemic plaguing the game. Good talk!
  14. You are a trader. So am I. The real thing we trade is TIME. If I am spending that much more time working to do it right, and you are trading babies you sit and forget due to glitching it is an enormous imbalance. I knew folks would chime in with your attitude. I can't help that you think cheating in a game is ok- that's about you and your world view. But it should absolutely bother everyone that some people have been banned for this sort of thing and now it seems to be no big deal at the very least. What I count on in official servers is a level playing field with equally applied enforcement. If you are going to have rules, enforce them.
  15. Lack of enforcement Dear Wildcard, I have been thinking of how to write this to best communicate the problem. We all know there has been a problem with duping and owl glitching. We know you are working on a solution. But it is what is happening on the enforcement side that upsets me on Official PVE. Multiple people on each server I play- other than Ab of course- have been using the Owl glitch to raise babies. As a largely single player that does it right- setting alarms, hunting exhaustively to support the babies I am raising I can't tell how discouraging it is to fly around a map and see folks on the 5th set of owl glitched babies- and nothing is done. So I ask you what is the official word on this? Is this a glitch and a bannable offense...or not? Why are these serial offenders not being nuked? You have to realise that more people will do this if you fail to enforce your owl rules. And the next glitch that comes along will find many more players willing to partake given your failure to crush the people who are openly cheating. As it is I have no desire to get on right now and raise babies. And that is unfortunate as that is a large part of PVE for most folks.
