So. My tribe leader and his main character are stuck on a server that's down. Just looking for information as to why the Xbox OC629 (THE ONLY SE FOR OC) isn't showing up on any list no matter the filter. "No sessions found" and absolutely NO response to reports. I'm watching a good PvP player and friend consider giving up all the effort he's put in since day one on Xbox early access. Just a tiny piece of info as to why it's down and/or when we can get him back to do his imprints... Drake imprints, you know how annoying it is to see anything but 100% on a drake? I don't want my tribe mate and tribe owner to quit, leaving me with a tribe no one owns and a damn good grinder out the door. I get stuck with everything, and this is official PvP, we need all hands on deck, especially the owner. Get back to me, he's the one that got me into ark and this may be a reason to quit, given the circumstances, regardless of any fancy teal toys we have or element that was wasted on the transmitter that despawned in the ob because of this. Thankyou. End rant!
Having been through the recent ordeal of an absent tribe leader that fails to pass on leadership before quitting, and having read similar problems occurring often enough that it's a problem, I started thinking of possible solutions. I think I've come up with one that most everyone can agree with and makes mechanical sense. Suggestion: Add a timer to the tribe leader's login time similar to what you would get on your structures. If he were the only tribe member and built a metal base, it would decay entirely after 16 days of absence as far as I'm aware. (The exact time can be negotiated, this is just an example for mechanical explanation) Therefore it isn't unreasonable to tie this to their grip over the tribe's materials. If it's due to other tribe members that the tribe's materials do not deteriorate in his absence, then they should be able to use that same measurement to take leadership and continue normally. So after 16 days of inactivity from the leader, an option comes up where the remaining admins can vote for a new leader between the other admins. The voting window will last 2 days. You may vote for yourself. After 2 days the vote will close and the admin with the most votes becomes the leader. (unless he leaves before then, in which case his name is struck from the ballot) If there is a draw between admins, then the admin with the longest time played within the tribe will be made leader. If there are no admins, then the vote will fall to remaining members with the same rules. If there are admins but they too are absent, (they don't vote at all) then the vote will fall to the remaining members after the 2 day period ends and begin a new 2 day voting period. What this system will do is allow remaining tribe members in a leaderless tribe to continue naturally without GM intervention, thus also clearing up many GM tickets on this issue. This is a first pass at the idea, so if there are holes in it or other problems then please let me know and we can find more solutions.
Hi, so I've thought about this a lot, and because of all of the character loss/wipes that have taken place, I think ti would be a really good idea to set up a function that the tribe leader can replace dino ownership back to a member that has been wiped. I have only had issues with getting GMs to help me out and just can't even move half of my dinos around or to another server. I think it would save a lot of time, effort and money for WC, if they were to create a feature like this. Only the Tribe leader could do it. That's just my two cents.
