  1. Rag 382 wiped? I am hoping this is going to be fixed with a rollback...but currently my main map has suddenly reset to day 1? I certainly hope wildcard would not make an arbitrary decision to wipe a server and restart it without giving players the opportunity to move belongings...
  2. I hate my life. I think that's what it is. I thought the huge ass multi hour download I did was the new map
  3. Can't access Crystal Isles servers So I have been trying for 5 hours now after patch. I select any of the NA crystal isles maps (they are not listed as full) and I start the load process, the screen flickers and kicks me back to the main ark page with the steam overlay showing all new and exciting crystal isles content. I have tried multiple times on multiple servers. I have tried joining through friend. I have tried joining through Battlemetrics. I have verified files. I CAN go in on single player. Suggestions?
  4. Note all I did was teleport from our ocean TP TO a public tp in the swamp...and that rock drake is still there flickering all over the sky like that- the giga tped about 5 bronto lengths from the actual tp, damaged itself and I could not 'catch it as it flickered all over the wall of a cliff for some time.
  5. Problems with dino teleport-Genesis There has been a rash of teleport problems with dinos on our Genesis 602. People losing dinos that go poof- no death message and no alternative spawn points...and with both HLNA and actual TP pads. For us it has been while using a tp pad from an ocean platform not sure if that is part of the problem. Happened with a fully imprinted giga yesterday and again today. Yesterday's is just gone...today this one was farr off from the Telepad jumping around against a cliff wall. I managed to film when my ravager did this inside the confines of a ocean pad base...bounding like a pinball up and down the walls as we phased in. Now it is my rockdrake:P It isn't quite gone you can see it flicking all over the sky above me like it is in a different layer and not fully brought into the area? Hard to explain...let me see if I can post images:
  6. 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.
  7. 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???!!!
  8. 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.
  9. Rag 382 is down multiple times a day for an hour or more. So many lost eggs/babies, toons lost to rollback etc.
  10. 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.
  11. 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...
  12. 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?
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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'.
