  1. Buenas soy un jugador de ARK desde la beta, tengo mas de 3000 horas jugadas, y jugado en oficiales, privados, custom y mantenido servidores. (DLC) para Octubre y una más para el próximo año y el día de hoy el juego fatal, los servidores están con mucho tiempo, no hay casi servidores, con el mapa de Ragnarok es muy ridículo la cantidad de servidores que tienen puestos, después de 70 ranuras, como mínimo poner 100 ranura como mínimo, todos los servidores saturados, la gente construye en cualquier zona de bloqueo de recursos o respawn de pj, colocan cimientos y pilares en todas las partes, una que los logos entrar en un servidor luego tienen una odisea para poder encontrar un lugar donde poner tu base, tenia menos lag en los servidores que el juego beta que actualmente, me parece un verdadero fraude por parte de la compañía, pero de 3000 horas jugando a una beta reportando los errores para salir del juego oficial en el juego, luego entrar en ARK primitivo,el juego en el cargar 30 minutos contados de reloj, 30 minutos para poder entrar en un servidor y después entras continuo y igual buscar zona para poder construir una base imposible, de verdad espero que lo solucionen y espero que algún administrador o moderador de foro me de alguna respuesta, por qué pienso tranvía una reclamación.porque pienso tramitar una reclamación.porque pienso tramitar una reclamación.
  2. Me and my two friends have played ark a long time but we are much slower on progress because we play on mostly default settings (default difficulty, stats, resource gathering, etc) i tend to play in my own world a lot which is very similar say for a few increased options like spoil time, taming speed (not instantaneous still), and some utility stuff like cave building and flyers. We play on Xbox, single player and non-dedicated host sessions. So ive been looking at the bosses stats on the wiki (which btw severely needs updating) and looking at the numbers i dont see how even high level rexes and such can last against these bosses, my friend went on a test world to spawn some in and see, and the broodmother was dealing 20k damage in under a minute... So basically the question is has anyone beaten the bosses without changing any settings?
  3. So the game has been in beta for so long and there a lot of people like me that we been playing a reporting bugs (some people just play the game but oh welll they did support the game by buying it ). It would be cool to give a special beta testers skin to every beta user and a beta tester achievement like blizzard does all these years for all of us that test their games in the beta program. Its a nice touch to thank us all.
  4. Beta player rewards

    I'm unsure if this has been addressed anywhere, I've tried to dig up some information but had no luck. I've been a strong supporter of ARK since the beginning, I have my Parasaur Stylish Saddle Skin that I still trot around in. I have the game on both Steam and Xbox One, bought Scorched Earth and put many extensive hours into the game. I've been seeing lots of rewards for new players who buy the special edition and the pre-order bonus skins and I understand that's how the game industry and market works, I'm a Student of Game Design and Development myself. However, it seems a little odd to me that I can not find rewards for long lasting players who have been the basis of funding. It might just be me not searching in the right places, Are there any rewards for long-committed players? Having just finished university, I do not have the money to go out and re-buy ARK again for the same console despite how much I really want that special edition. Thank you for the time
  5. Some time ago I saw that some players have a winged joystick icon of their name, and some of them told me that they were beta testers and tested the updates before they left, so it made me interesting to be beta tester and try it out.
  6. A lot of people have had growing concerns on when ARK will become a full and final release. I decided to look into it and found that, after reading tweets and watching interviews, the overall mindset seems to be this: 3 stages for release. Stage 1) Pre-Alpha/Alpha - This is the current stage. This stage is the point in game development where the base game is being created. The final goal in stage 1 is to release all creatures and features. 6 months ago this seemed like a daunting task, but as time goes on, WildCard has been doing a great job of steadily releasing 2-4 new dinos each month. At this rate(after upcoming v256 update with Equus) there will be 9 remaining unreleased dino dossiers left. Maintaining the current rate, we are looking at approximately 3 months(end of June) before all dossiers are released. This would be a great timeline for WildCard too, because: it'll be around same time tek tier items are finalized, will be around the 2-year PC anniversary for release, and will be in the summer time(which is a huge time for the gaming industry player base). -Once all of the creatures and features are released, the game will transition into the next stage... Stage 2) Beta -Ah, finally! The long awaited 'Beta' phase. Contrary to popular belief, the beta phase, NOT THE ALPHA PHASE, is the time in game development where bugs, glitches, disconnects, networkings, graphical issues, updates, nerfs, buffs, etc. takes place. If you ever follow WildCard in their updates and blogs, you will see a repeated question: "When are you going to update the older dinos looks/abilities/stats?!". The answer to this has, and always will be, "Once we have released everything, we will go back and look over all of our dinos at that stage in the game". In a post dated last June/July, they had given a few examples of their future re-vamps(trike gets a charge similar to Rhino, Alpha Wolves get a howl buff, etc.). What exactly WILL happen or change? Aint got a clue, but I know that's when it will take place. - And, finally, after a few months(or when they feel confident) of Beta, the game will finally be ready for the last stage... Stage 3) Full Release -This one is kind of self-explanatory, but the game will officially be out. We will still receive patch updates for glitches, and we might get some new DLC or what not, but at this stage, those will be far and few between. The game will be released to all in the general public. Hopefully, with new Playstation and Xbox Scorpio, we will get some revamped hardware updates for the game, but only time will tell. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, Hopefully this will put some peoples' worry to rest. If everyone were to read this and understand that constant complaints about "Gigas/Quetzs/Etc. are overpowered!" or "The old mammals(direwolves, sabers, deer) have crappy models compared to new ones!" and "Why even have Parasaur or Trike or Mammoth in game? There are SO many better options!". All of this and more will be handled in the long-awaited beta phase. Now, I am no WildCard affiliate, but I would argue the timeline will look something like this: Stage 1: June 2015- July/August 2017. Again, like I said earlier, will fall in line with release of original PC version, summer time kids, and the conceptual dossier release timeframe. Stage 2: July/August 2017 - December 2017. This is the time frame that, I believe, WildCard will want to power through all their bugs and glitches. Imagine if all their time spent on releasing and prepping new dossiers and tek gear, they could focus 100% on dino buffs/nerfs/reworks and bugs affecting game? That would be amazing. I also, personally, believe the beta phase information will be gathered and tested on PC, then transferred to XB1/PS4. This way, come the time for stage 3, all Pc and Consoles will be on the same page. Stage 3: December 2017- January2018. I Truly believe that it will take the rest of the year to get ARK to the point of a full release. I believe WildCard would want to start off all the systems on the same patch for day-1 release. At this point in time, servers should be prepped, bugs should be all but fixed, and the holiday season will be upon us. If they are, at all, capable of getting a release out pre-Christmas, this game's sales would sky-rocket. I am excited for this phase in ARK's life, and I hope to see twice as many people play. I want it to be like the initial release, when servers were always 80%+ full. *********** So this is my unofficial take on the scheduled release date. Let me know if yall have any thoughts or ides/critiques on my time frame(preferably other than 'its never getting released, lol!'). I would love to hear what everyone thinks. I just thought this would be a good way to bring some closure and guidance to people who seem to be constantly frustrated with the state of the game. Remember: BREATHE. Game development takes time, give them some more and you will be pleasantly surprised.********* That is all, Thanks!
  7. Peaceful Server?

    So me and my tribe are tired of Alphas that just ruin the game and we're in search of nontyrannical servers, and cannot find any. We barely even want to play the game anymore, the alphas have become way to OP. Lemme know, if you need a tribe to merge with, alliance, or you know of a peaceful server.
  8. Alpha Tribe Alliance

    My tribe and I build extremely fast with only about 4-5 active players (around 8 or 9 total, but the others rarely play). So when we join new servers, no one raids us... Except the Alpha tribes, we don't know what to do considering we only get raided from alphas and that is hard to defend. SO, we were thinking if there is any alpha tribes on PS4 that want to ally since we are pretty good. We will build up really quickly, and you won't have to worry bout us sucking. Also, this isn't me trying to find an easy way out, or bragging. We just literally have nothing else to do since we're good so alphas raid us for no reason, and leave everyone else to be.
  9. STOP DOING THISStop blocking the obs and drops plz i had a tribe we were beta on the server we were on, and then the alpha found us and wiped us so we transfer they give a server number, and they messed up but when they corrected themselves i was already logging in to the server, i go to an ob to transfer to the right server and then boom theres gates and a tribe that picks me with a ptera and drops me i go around the map looking for a drop and i found 1 it was blocked by a metal foundation, i had a lvl 79 character on an official server and was there for 4 hours until som1 finally demolished 1 of the metal foundations and i was free i was even trapped and caged outside of the ob. Plz stop doing this!!!
  10. Hi i'm starting a new server that has increased stats. I am willing to change to meet wants/needs. RULES: No passive tame killing Forge/Community areas are PvE When raiding don't wipe base (Just take what u want and leave no base destroying) STATS: Tame 25x XP 10x Hatching/Maturing 12x Player stats increased Dino stats increased For any questions Add/Msg ArkHub or Ultra3DGamer WARNING: I haft to inform you that this is a TEST/BETA server and things can change but they can also stay the same. The server are in its test stages and with have some problems Msg ArkHub or Ultra3DGamer
  11. I recently quit ark and made a final post of advice to go with it, in thread Ark > SE > general, but it was taken down due to, "name shaming." No sticky to explain forum rules, mind you, not that it should matter under the circumstances. I wasn't grossly vulgar, nor inappropriate, with referring to the individual/tribe. I was merely informing, or advising readers. Quick show of hands; how many players join your server and immediately ask, "is this server any good? How are the tribes?" I fail to believe I am the only one who has witnessed this. Would I be slandering these peoples' names in chat, then, to tell those new players to go elsewhere, expect the same ole same, or play a different game altogether, because the tyrannical players own this server as well? How broken is the community, that alphas can utterly rule, but when someone speaks out against them, the informants are silenced. Here's the information, that may help, which was taken down: My 3-man tribe made it to 70, slowly over 2 months, on three different lives, by not building big bases, and by logging out in bushes by cliffs, with ghillies on, and with spike walls in front. Our logic was the alphas didn't like to clean up spike walls, and patting mobs couldn't reach us. Keep tames in similar pens, one at a time, or in small groups. Store your valuables in chests, in bushes, where people or berry gathering dinos wont cross. Furthermore, remember, don't keep all your eggs in one basket; tried and true. Reaching level 10 is the hardest, but after you get bolas, midlands 3 & 4 are good leveling, with the only threat being an occasional raptor. Having our fortitude at 26 helped stave off the extreme temperatures. With 38 fortitude (and armor), you almost never have to watch out for freezes, or heat storms. Anyways, last post. Too many hours spent on this game, for not.
  12. I've posted before a suggestion that there be a publicly available beta server for players to try out and to test new features before they become patches. But now I am wondering, the possibility of a nightly total-conversion mod. This would be a no-holds bar nightly-build vanilla server that would be a total conversion. It would be made available for those who have their own servers to test things out. This would ultimately require players to understand that it would be a complete test server that had the latest untested build. To offer a separate staging ground for testing within the community would help inspire those willing to contribute in feedback. This would be a vanilla testing ground, no mods, and only the map/s that apply. Every new build would or can wipe characters, dinos, and or buildings. Whatever is on focus for testing. I believe there to be a strong community force willing to step up and join in the testing efforts of new features to be released, or to help out in any way. For those wondering what "nightly-build" refers to. (not everyone will understand this) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daily_build
  13. Just wondering when were going into beta
  14. Offline Co-op

    As thrilling as this game is when you play online, I'd love to suggest the addition of offline co-op. Not everyone's internet is able to support the great wonders of live play. Most people lag out, have the issue of finding fair servers to play on or just don't enjoy the thought of hosting their own sever. I personally enjoy playing offline with my boyfriend on many games because I don't own xbox live and 2) I don't have an xbox one to play with him. It's just a suggestion. Thanks(:
  15. Will Ark end up having an early access such as xboxand PC but on the ps4, and if so when?
