Studio support. Wildcard has a semi-reliable customer service team/enforcement team.
Support on the server i play on is ALOT better than what you get on official.
Official posed more of a challenge.
Rates on our server arent that much higher than official, it just a bit less of a grind.
Official wasn't controlled by private 3rd party server lease/owners. (we've seen our fair share of @#$@'ed up admins from private server clusters)
True, you need to find a good server
Official servers aren't constantly down like unofficial servers due to frequent patching and the need for private owners to update them.
The server i play on isnt down much, if i look at the forums, official is down more
Official offers a much larger and more interesting community of players from all over the country/world. Unofficial usually involves a handful of friends in a closed network.
You are right, official is more popukated, but there is players from all over the world on the unofficial i play on..
Official means there's a certain amount of responsibility and commitment by Wildcard to maintain their servers and CoC enforcement.
Again.. Nothing wrong with that on the server i play on.
For me the reason for choosing unofficial was the 8 days timer for you to lose all your dinos. raptor that XD
