    Aberr Server PVE 380 = 255 Ping AGAIN

    Hey folks- We have community members very diligently reporting the issues via the outage application and yet no resets incoming. I have a clutch of lag drakes sitting stagnating and developing at ridiculously reduced rates. Trying to play at 255 ping and hoping each time I sign on to see evidence of a reset. No dice. Can someone please take ownership and babysit the server and send us reset love as it climbs? Last year I heard horror stories of the Life event resulting in mass dead babies because the bonus instead went the opposite direction. I for one would really like to enjoy it working at proper rates....

    Ping at 255 AGAIN please reset?
  3. Hi Wildcard. Long time player here from the early days who has endured all the growing pains and rollbacks and bugs and stuck with it for over 5k hours on my main account. I had to leave for a couple years, but recently returned when some friends and I got nostalgic and decided to see what you have grown up to become. I have to say you still have keyed in on some great material that just wasn't out there. You appeal to me still, you really do. But the tame cap just has to go. Now, I know why. I understand. I felt the agony of game crashes coming into view of certain bases with loads of dinos. I know about 'Box tribes' who fanatically collect every variation of dino color they can fine then let them sit in 'boxes' doing nothing much other than that. You can't have just one (You really can't...you need kibble for bigger and better dino tames, or you need to go to war and need backups...so collecting is a major part of the game). You can't really arbitrarily tell a consumer they can only have X dinos...to many variables at play for that. But what is worse is people buying a game...that they can't actually play. Today's situation that keyed off this post: Two weeks of searching for an official map for friends and I to play on where we can actually tame the distinct dinos of that map. We found a place on Aberration...but not a single other official map connects to that one that will allow us to establish an outpost there. Not one. Every inquiry, every hop to explore....not a single official alternative map was open. (side rant- why do you not have server health statistics informing new players a server is tame capped?! Ping is great to know...but being able to actually tame a dino would be good info as well...) I have witnessed player after player signing on and asking..."hey are you tame capped?" And today on a Rag map we resigned ourselves to just for the pearls and oil...a guy comes on looking for a home for himself and his son to actually play this brand new game they bought...only to be told for the umpeenth time "Sorry...tame capped...you can't tame dinos here." The guy was understandably upset. He bought a game that looked fun. He was told all these amazing things he could do...build, tame a dino for every job, meet people...yada yada. But after buying it and getting it home...no sorry, you can't do that on an official map. So Wildcard. Is this good enough for you? Players say a lot of angry things but I don't want to think this is where you stop caring. So I bring you a possible solution to your overly successful game: Allow players to use the TEK line to install Barns on their property. A prefabricated, one size fits all structure you can walk a dino into...and let it upload off the server to a 'holding pen'. One barn per dino type. Stego. Rex. Giga. Bronto. You can have every color, stat and level you like...but it is off the server so performance is not hindered. People can land a bird and 'view dino' to see what you have and what levels and how it looks if maybe they want to buy or breed. (A setting you can control- say a 'open for viewing' option radial dial). You can display a couple dinos if you like. Out in the field..whatever. But the mega collections are all stored data off the server. You get eggs from the 'barn' from a dispenser. You put food in a trough to feed them all- or they die just like usual. The barn does not stop decay. You can have dinos out while online. When the offline timer kicks in= dinos upload again. Maybe..if people really want to display their hoard-implement an unrestricted monthly fee. That's right..if you want to have them all out...pay for it. This is just one idea. But you have to address this dino cap thing somehow. I really want to play your game on official settings with other folks. Thanks.

    Official Server Transfers Between Maps

    Yeah I thought it was strange too! Haha...but I am new to all of this transfer business so I am leaving room for operator error. So to recap I can tell you what I did- see if you see any problems with my actions? 1. Currently on our old legacy server, 367 Island. We heard about the pending doom for low pop legacy servers and decided to take the dinos we have and move to official Island map. 2. At green obelisk, after filtering 'official' , our only choices...are other Island maps. 3. We assumed maybe we would have to jump from one of the listed 'official' Island maps to an official aberration map we also put roots down on, and/or a fire map. We tried this, and even from one of the official island maps, there was no listing for any 'official' map other than Island. Things I have since learned- there is this thing called 'clusters' which I still need to investigate and may be why we can't connect to our official Aberration map? Yet it still seems very strange to me that our 'cluster offers only Island maps as 'official' options. Ultimately what we want is one map with each dino type to make small taming bases on. Then one primary map for main facility. So it is important I can xfer to each.

    Official Server Transfers Between Maps

    Thanks for responding, I appreciate it. Yes I am on a legacy server currently and it allows xfer to other Island OFFICIAL servers which I experimented with. But from THAT island server there is no connection to any other official map and no I did not filter them out- the only filter I used was 'official'. I apparently was not playing when this all went down. Kind of confounding that it seems the intention of letting people move was so they could close the old legacy servers then not connect them to other maps? When we came back we thought we could move our high xp toons at least to new maps...no dice. (though mine poofed all together so...there is that.) Just pondering the point of xfer functions then hobbling it so badly with restrictions, there is no use for it.....
  6. Hey all. I am coming here for advice and perspective as this whole process for transferring is so different than when the Hubs and I last played about 2 years back. In the past couple weeks he signed on the old (legacy) server Island map, came on a decaying base and grabbed some mats and just decided to start over on the map we originally had as our main. After getting up and running we found out about the legacy server thing- that they are no longer supported, have issues with coding for new material and could close at any time if low pop. So- we decided to try some of the other maps and came up with a mad scheme to do small bases on each map type to tame the critters particular to it- all official servers of course. But when hitting the obelisk to move servers we saw we could only move to other Official Island servers. Well, we figured we would just do a hub base on an official Island base to move our dinos to and then hit other maps from there. Nope. From the new official island map- still no other official fire or aberration map showing. We started with friends on an official aberration map trying to link up that way- still no dice. Is there something to this 'new and improved' method of server hopping I am not seeing? Not doing correctly? Because I have no idea why this is the case? Is something bugged or not working correctly? What we want to do is move dinos from the old defunct Island map- to official island map. Then from there be able to hop to our official aberration home, and also set up on a fire map. What am I missing? Signed, Confused Old Timer
