  1. Man I'd love to see a video of that, lol. Not cause I don't believe you, but because I think that'd be hilarious to watch.
  2. How about an update for Xbox one to fix the dashboarding and ridiculous lag on Extinction? It's been over a month since the last patch. I played Rag for 8 hrs this weekend = not a single crash, only a handful of ~2 second lags. Played a few hours on Aberration, no lag and no dashboarding. Switch to Extinction and I dashboarded within 20 minutes. It's ridiculous.
  3. Setup Aberration on a PVE CrossArk cluster with a few friends so we could go get Rock Drakes and Reapers. We want to play legit, working our way up, etc, but with a little help to be able to transfer back to our Extinction server when we want. On my first spawn, I came in to the Fertile Lake area and setup a 'safehouse' - just a big tek building with a behemoth gate and a tek transmitter so we could bring things over or switch back without having to hunt down a loot box. I hadn't played much on Aberration, so didn't realize how far away from....everything....this location is. I know there's a surface cave nearby at least, but I'm wanting to setup another safehouse somewhere that'll be easier to get to the Rock Drake nests and such. Any suggestions on where to put another one that would be better located for Rock Drake runs and such? We're still building bases and such - the safehouse is strictly used as a safe/reliable access to the transmitter.
  4. I'm *really* hoping it's addressed in the next patch, which is due pretty much any day now. Given that Ark was added to Xbox Game Pass on Jan 3, I'm sure MS is breathing down WC's neck to make sure it's a good experience. I switched over to Aberration in the meantime. Might as well get me a rock drake and reaper while I wait for a playable game. None of these issues on Aberration - textures all load in (fully), no dashboarding, etc.
  5. Same here - I can play ~45 min before a crash. Doesn't matter what I'm doing - I have a big base, but it crashes if I'm in the base, out of the base, clear other side of the map (with no player-made structures rendered), etc. It's made it damn near impossible to do drops or veins solo - have to have a buddy, as each will likely crash at least once. It's ridiculous. Maybe since it's been added to Game Pass they'll finally do some work to optimize.
  6. The cut to black and dashboard is the worst - I'm afraid to do the big stuff (OSD, titan, etc) cause I just know that it's going to happen right in the middle of the battle and then I'm screwed. Are you guys on Xbox One, One S, or One X? I think the original One is having trouble keeping up with Extinction.
  7. Same here on the original Xbox one. It also really seems to struggle with rendering the full-res of stuff. I've gotten used to Ark looking like a cartoon in most instances - I have several tames that I've literally never seen fully rendered. It's obnoxious.
  8. How hard would it suck to start from scratch on Extinction, seriously? I play PVE and have been working my way up on a Ragnarok server with a buddy to be able to fight bosses. We've collected most of the artifacts, still have a few trophies to get, etc. From my understanding, you pretty much *need* Tek unlocked to play on Extinction, is that right? Cause legitimately unlocking Tek engrams would require us to play every boss on every map (Island, Aberration, etc), which requires quite a bit of work to get the trophies needed and such. Am I missing something? Could a new player pick up Ark TODAY and enjoy Extinction?
