  1. So when i joined my Official The Island EU Server yesterday, i was greeted by a Giga near my base, so i decided to Tame it (Lvl 100 Male). Dropping it was very easy but then a Problem arised, no matter how much Narcotics i would give him, his Torpor rose at normal speed, but then dropped by 500ish points in between the rising ticks, so after about half an hour and 3000 Narcotics (Dododex suggested 400) he woke up and proceded to drown himself in the ocean. Is this intentional? Because normally the torpor does not drain while a narcotic is in effect. The Server is a bit laggy since it's always at 70/70 but with other tames this didn't happen. So Wildcard, please Fix (or explain)
  2. Giga Rage Mechanic

    Right now the Giga rage mechanic is absurdly easy to work around and doesn't offer much of a risk to anyone using them to attack. In my experience a late game raid consists of multiple Gigas with air support in the form of quetzals/argents/pteras and snipers scattered around at long range. Occasionally there is a war bronto/paracer as well for anti air purposes. In these scenarios the rage mechanic doesn't really pose a risk to the attacking tribe because of how controlled and consistent the mechanic is. It's too easy to work around on top of the fact that Gigas will not attack each other when enraged. These beasts are not difficult to tame, store safely, or utilize, which I think is completely opposite of what was intended for these dinos. What if there was a randomized time rage mechanic in addition to the taken damage mechanic? For example, every 5 seconds the giga has a .001 chance to enrage. This chance to enrage could be increased for each additional giga within a certain proximity. There is no reason that an "apex predator" should be so calm and accommodating to another "apex predator" (particularly of the same gender) in its pen. I see so many elite tribes that simply store their giga armies next to everything else because they are THAT confident that they won't rage. These things are supposed to be difficult to tame, difficult to store, and difficult to utilize in battle. They are currently none of those things and they make PVP extremely binary. Do you have a giga? Yes - You have a fighting chance. No - You lose, period. By introducing a simple and less predictable mechanic it would be possible to address the issues that are making these things too easy to utilize and store. They were advertised as being a "roll of the dice" type of thing where the risk was there and the high reward was there, at this point in time it is simply nothing but high reward. Additional thought - What if the Gigas had to "ramp up" in damage during fights rather than starting fights grossly overpowered? They could start out doing 50% of the damage that they currently do and each attack they could gain 5-10% of the damage back until they hit 100% power. This gives them a bit of a window of weakness where defending tribes that are organized can shut them down a bit. Sorry for the scattered thoughts but you get the idea! I would greatly appreciate any input or feedback on the idea because I think ark is a really fantastic game but the giga has proven itself as an outlier.
  3. Highest level giga

    Just curious if anyone else has tamed a level 120 giga. Ours was a female, kibble tamed perfectly. Let me know. Also if you breed one at a higher level. Just curious.
  4. Bred Dino Stats

    Hey people! I have played some ark and heard some people say that they had realy good dino stats, like 400 melee and 25k health on a rex, and i was thinking like 'is that really so high? Because i saw videos of people who had like 600 melee and 45k health or so, and i was just curious what your best dino stats are from like rexes, gigas, therizinos, pteras, etc. i never bred dinos before because i have no time to wake up at night... props to all the people who bred rexes and gigas and such!
  5. Suddenly Giga starving?

    Hey, i just checked tribe log and saw that the Giganotosaurus of my mate Sop (Gluupor in forum) starved to dead. But there cant be any reason why this happened, since he had the same amount of food like our other Gigas have. Same access to feeder. Thats super frustrating, since we took holidays from our work to imprint this Giga and three others to 100% Thats one of his siblings, Hannah. The food amount of the dead Giga Edgar must have been the same.
  6. Boss Raids

    Is it possible to bring Titanosaurs or Gigas into a boss raid? I understand the rage mechanic would make it super risky. But in a place like the Broodmother arena where you can just grapple up to the ceiling wouldn't that be more effective than using Rexes?
  7. Alpha/Lava Island Giganotosaurus

    Took about 13 hours to finish up. Originally was just supposed to be a regular Giga but I liked the lava cracks so much I just left them on there. Extreme fantasy portrayal. This is my first time posting any art I've made before so I'm nervous but yeah!
  8. Giganotosaurus and Therizinosaurus got in base and killed everything ... On PS4 PVE Official NA server (634) ... I logged in this afternoon, and somehow a Giganotosaurus and Therizinosaurus was able to get into my base and kill almost every animal I had, destroy my smithy, fabricator (damaged, not completely destroyed), various wood floors, etc. My base has a three high stone wall all around, and the inside building made of stone walls was inset at least five blocks from the outside wall. I don't see how they got in, unless they spawned in my base, or glitched through the walls... or, can they get over three high walls, and then somehow get into structures? Since I have to now rebuild a lot of the base, I am going to relocate and build it different, but I don't want to waste an extreme amount of ours to make up for everything I lost if this is going to continue to be an issue. Side note: I am not sure if all servers still struggle as much as 634 does with lag and rubber-banding, but I really wish this could be fixed. I fear above might have been caused by lag / glitch / rubber-banding. The server needs some TLC. Thank you. (attached image is just the start of the long scroll of chaos)
  9. Tek Forcefields are useful after all! so, i decided to experiment and see if a giga could infact break through the new tek forcefield, what i discover, is a remarkable twist and a new found respect for the tek forcefield.

  11. Currently on our Official PvP server (The Island) we have 5 titanosaurs wandering the map. Based on wiki it should only be 3 and the increased amount of titano's seems to be the reason we only have 1 Giganotosaurus spawning in (used to be 2 for a while but since the 5th titano it even got reduced to 1). Anyone else having the same problems?
  12. Feed your Gigas now!

    I feed my giga every 3 days. I went on yesterday to find that it vanished. Nothing in my log. I flew so a friends base and found her main giga was missing and the second she had was almost dead. Fortunately she was on and I got her to log in and save it. It was at 5000 health and was fed yesterday. I checked another tribe with 6 gigas and they were lightly bloody. PC players have the same issue, so I do not know why they would put the patch in with this bug. This is PvE we are talking about. I had lots of great memories with my giga, and was going to quit at one point when 3 tribes knocked it out and planned to kill it when I had just logged in and I offered to kibble tame it. I play by myself as my entire tribe quit after we got trolled by another tribe member. Now there is no way I can tame or raise a giga by myself as I have no help and at most there are 15 people on the server. My favorite part of the game is working with my tribe. But people and glitches like this makes me play more and more of single player all by myself since I can fix anything that happens.

  14. giganotosaurus Gigas Useless?

    Am I just stupid for thinking this or are Gigas one of the most useless yet over-the-top dinos in the game? I mean not only are the OP in the wild and fairly hard to tame (incredibly hard to knock out) but by the time you tame it they have stats compared to a decent war Rex! Plus having all that health doesn't even matter if they rage before half of it's health can even empty! Plus on top of that most of its stats are atrocious, speed is only good because of its stride, stamina is literally the worst, and it can't swim for jack. None of its stats can be upgraded much at all so a 150 giga perfect tame is basically as good as a level 1 giga that someone trapped, shot with arrows, and tamed with meat and a lot or narcoberries. On top of all that the Giga is going to get nerfed, (or already has on PC) and make it even more useless! The only point I see in it is the appearance of strength and the ability to destroy stone buildings.
  15. Change Giga -> Alpha Giga

    I would like to repeat a suggestion that I made a while ago, based on my concerns regarding the giganotosaurus. To put it bluntly: I **** hate it! Simply, the way its stats step out of line in such a manner that you would think somebody typed one too many zeroes into a config file. In addition to that, the devs had to introduce these freakish taming-penalties to prevent it from breaking PVP interaction completely. Now that just looks like band-aid to me. Counteracting the symptoms of a problem that lies somewhere else. However I spent a little bit of time looking up the reasons why you might prefer it this way. The primary concern being the lack of threat to end-game players / tribes with metal bases, an army of rexes, a thousand auto-turrets and so on. Regarding at least this concern, I would propose a change that would serve both sides: Take the current Giga, make it the Alpha Giga (cannot be tamed) and make a normal Giganotosaurus that is more in line with the remaining cast of creatures. Personally I would be happy with stats that double those of the Rex. Something like 10000 HP at lvl 1, 200 or 300 Base Damage. But at least bring it down to the stats that a tamed Giga has at the moment. That way, it does not need to lose 80% of its health and damage upon taming, just out of nowhere. This way, the Giganotosaurus can be a normal creature because, well ... I just like consistency in a game, and you still have the Alpha Giga, being properly designated as a boss-creature, to worry about in your turret-peppered metal bunkers. As for the things that would actually change: Taming a giga is now, in my opinion, a bit nicer, not because it is necessarily easier, but because there may be more options, other than sitting on a quetz platform and shooting a ton of tranq darts for half an hour. I would love some feedback on this, especially if you have other reasons why you want the current Giga in the game, or if you could point out other gameplay changes that this change would bring about. The way it stands, I believe that this change would give us all the best of both worlds. EDIT: To clarify: The Alpha Giga would be identical to the current Giga and the new 'normal' Giganotosaurus would have more similar stats to the other creatures, though I agree it should still be the strongest non-alpha creature.
  16. Hi! Before the last big update I needed to feed my gigas every two or three days and they didn't run out of food/hunger completely. But now it seems like I need to feed them every day and they start taking damage from being out of food. I would be happy to have this fixed back to normal. Or even make it slower. As itisb't easy to be avalible every week, especially in the summer. That's also why I'd like to have a more advanced feeding through. But right now I at least want to get the old food rates back. Thank you!
  17. Hello! How come the center island doesen't have 6x damage on the whole island? It's disconnected from the main land, which makes it superior to all other places where you can build a base. You cannot bring Gigas over there, but you can tame Gigas. It has to have some weakness to counter its advantages. It also has a lot of metal, alpha predators and beaver dams, all in a very short reach, which makes it even more superior to all other places.
  18. On my official Xbox server that I play on these to tribes say they tame Gigas with rare mushrooms. I was wondering if this was true. They also demand that we get them 2000 rare mushrooms or they will wipe us. ?
  19. Giganotosaurus rare?

    So today we went to Far's Peak with our boat to harvest the large amounts of obsidian found there, take a look, and tame some dinos that we didn't have yet. We found a Giganotosaurus (my first), that luckily was doing his own thing and didn't mind us that much. However, later he suddenly strolled unto the beach and killed two of our dinos when destroying our raft. We kited him into the ocean where he eventually drowned. That said, back on the mountain, there was another Giga that seemed to be stuck at the mountain. Taking an Argy to the top, we found six (!) Gigas that were strolling about. The ARK gamepedia says that they are "Solitary hunters" and "very rare". I had tried to convince my tribe mates that the mountain was safe enough, and that Gigas were very rare, so that after that first one we had a safe zone to harvest the obsidian... Now they will never believe me again. Is this a glitch or just a coincidence, or quite normal? I really thought that only a few could be present at one time on the whole island, and six on one square metre is, well, an overkill in my opinion. Anyone else experienced this?
  20. I was thinkin, maybe the Bronto, or Carno or even the Raptor should have a roar option! what do you guys think could use a Roar?
  21. Stupid Question

    So as the title says, prepare for a stupid question... Is the giganotosaurus available on Xbox? I've been scouring the Ark and haven't spotted one yet!
  22. Giganoto's Inspiration?

    Dear Studio Wildcard- I'd love a response to this one... Was this your inspiration for the gargantuan monstrosity in Ark? ?

  24. A large alpha tribe has several bases with at least one giganotosaurus just standing out in the open. Please tell me there are ways to enrage that dinosaur and cause havoc in their base. If not, are there any ways to kill it from range?
