  1. As we all know when it comes to PVP in this game there is many ways to approach it. There is the obvious blunt force trauma approach and then there is alternative 'methods'. I am a great fan of taking the strategic initiative to gain the advantage, in particular I have won many battles without doing much heavy lifting on my own part. I must admit I quite enjoy this aspect of PVP, the diplomacy and politics mixed in with some phycological warfare probably more then just the regular combat. One of my first success was back in the early days of ARK. Basically we were playing on an Official PVP server and there was 3 main tribes including ours that were allied up. There was also some smaller tribes, but the server was for the most part pretty peaceful for a PVP server. At that time our tribe was still a normal/conventional tribe but after a while this kind of got a bit stale and then an opportunity came along, a reasonably large but peaceful Chinese tribe joined the server. I was acutely aware of the hostility and suspicion towards such groups on other servers and games and decided to implement a new tactic. I and my most trusted lieutenants went ahead and bought a 2nd copy of the game and then created some fictitious Chinese alts with plausible Chinese style names as a well as fake tribe to go with it which soon became quite infamous called the ABC. We also implemented a strict set of rules to ensure our ruse was a success. All communication be it global, local or voice was entirely forbidden, in the several weeks that the campaign was run we didn't say a word. It was also forbidden to go near our main base except to deposit loot and to stage attacks. With the rules of engagement in place we began our campaign of terror, attacking all the non Chinese tribes on the server and in particular our allied tribes. Up until this point what little PVP there was on the server had been a fairly tame affair, it was mostly fairly gentle combat and raiding. Much of it was the smaller tribes stealth raiding each other where they would for the most part leave the base intact and avoid killing their dinos. I realized for our plans to work we needed to usher in a new era, things had to become more brutal so to speak. Orders were put through that nothing was to be spared during our raids. The passive tames and indeed everything in their base including the foundations was to be deleted, maximum damage and trauma was to be inflicted. It was important that the victims were fully aware who had attacked them and thus h we made no efforts to hide our actions. The more publicity they generated the better. We wanted to terrorize the server and thus be able to channel the hate and anger that we knew that would likewise follow our actions towards the Chinese. Occasionally we would also attack ourselves to keep up the ruse. These were staged attacks where we would blow up a wall or two of the outer walls, we'd also occasionally ritually slaughter a low level dino or two so we could show the body to our allies who we called over to assist us fight off the evil bandits. The loot we gained from out raids would be deposited in our vaults via using a pin coded little hut in the woods just outside of turret range of our main base, which acted as the transfer depot. Over the course of our campaign, the storage space in our multiplied. We started out with 2 vaults and by the end had added 4 more floors to the base and another 12 vaults. Things worked pretty well for us with our two tribe separation ensuring there was little chance of discovery. Even in our tribe only about 4 of us out of about 15 knew of the scheme, everyone else was told the story that the accumulating wealth was from over zealous farming. At one point we even used it to inspire our workforce as well as give ourselves a pat on the back. We implemented a sort of quota system where we'd award small prizes for exceptional farming efforts in the form of high tier weapons and armor set, which we naturally always won. This allowed us to present ourselves as examples of the devout farmer, the ideal tribe member that all others should aspire to. I would take the regular members to the mining hut and show them the thousands of ingots one of our heroic 'farmers' supposedly farmed that day and say to them look how much Bob farmed today. Of course these farming efforts were fictitious, and no one in our tribe managed to get anywhere close to our farming achievements but it was a good source of inspiration to the rest to work harder and work they did. Overall farming profits went up and we were the first tribe to have an entire ring of full metal bemouth gates around our base on the server. The scheme went very smoothly until the one time when one of us got lazy and was photo'd collecting loot boxes thrown to him by one of the Chinese by a guy in a French tribe. Luckily for us the leader of the French tribe was also quite unscrupulous and instead of going public with the information he simply added me on Steam and sent me the photo. In order to keep things quiet we agreed to a deal where we wouldn't attack his main base and we would also give him our excess loot. He and his small tribe eventually became extremely wealthy and no one seemed to notice this little French tribe of 4 with a large base and wealth seemingly well beyond their means that always managed to beat off these fearsome raiders. Anyways after several weeks of plunder, we decided it was time to take the next step. These attacks had generated a huge amount of anger and suspicion towards the Chinese from the rest of the server. The real Chinese tribe repeatedly denied having anything to do with us but despite several weeks of searching no one could find our base on the island (this was before server transfers existed). Up until this point there was a lot of hostility between the Chinese and the non Chinese tribes but since there was no direct evidence linking the raiding tribe and the Chinese there was a reluctance from the others to go to outright war. We aimed to change this. In the dark of night one evening, I swam across to Herbivore Island which was where the real Chinese tribe's base was located and took out of my pocket a ready to go metal base. I plonked it down in the name of the fake Chinese tribe as close as I could to their walls and then swam away. I then went onto my allies Teamspeak and told them what we had discovered near the main Chinese base. This was for me the most challenging part, I had to engage in a bit of acting and fake outrage but they swallowed the whole story and with my urging they decided to go to war. Despite furious Chinese denials, the very next day, they us and the other ally began the invasion of Herbivore Island and so began the war. Here is a video of this event. It's taken from August 2015 and was uploaded after the events by a fairly large YouTube streamer from the time who was in one of our allied tribes. The video shows the initial invasion of the Chinese island and he gives a brief background to the situation. Anyways I am curious though to read about what other adventures and schemes some of our most enterprising and ambitious PVP players on here have pulled off over the years. I am sure there are many great stories still waiting to be told.
  2. There are a lot of threads on this forum lately talking about quaint stuff like what colours mutations your baby dino got or popular dino names. I think its time there was a thread that discussed something a but more substantial. ARK is a PVP game and a lot of us on here no doubt share a blood lust, we enjoy the thrill of the hunt and a good violent rampage on a PVP server. So this is a thread to report your nefarious in-game activities like stealing the narcotics out of your friendly neighbours tame or just breaking into a base and slaughtering everything in sight for no particular reason. The more brutal, violent and cunning your story is the higher your post will be rated. Keep it factual though this isn't a place for aspiring fiction writers. So with that I will begin. This was from an event from a while back but one that I think should help inspire others.
  3. Dragon boss strategy help So me and my friends are getting ready for the alpha dragon boss, but we know that it's supposed to be really hard. We're not sure what we need to kill the boss on are first try. I know we want a yuty, but mainly I don't know what the stats should be for the rexes. How much health and damage, armor. Anything would help.
  4. As per the title. My tribe and our allies have tried him twice on gamma now. The first was more a "let's see it" sort of action, we took only the ice titan and some managarmars. Ice Titan pilot DC'd, it all went to retreat mode pretty quickly. For our first "serious" attempt we took the ice titan, desert titan, and managamars, with some nearby owls to fly to and a lot of sleeping bags nearby. Also used 3 meks, had about 12 players total. This feels like it should have been enough for the boss, but in reality it wasn't anywhere close. The current patch has the titans taking a LOT more damage from the King than they used to, making us question how useful they were for the effort needed to get them. His "one shot" move is one of the cheapest things ever in an environment guaranteed to have lag. Meteors are sometimes invisible, and their craters affect flyers well above them. The corrupt spots for spawning gigas spawn their gigas way, way too fast. The whole fight felt very out of tune. Is fight meant to be done with a very specific strategy in mind? (considering trying HIGH flying platform quetz with gunners next while managamar kite as an example). Just seems like the titan nerf may have gone too far with the final boss.
  5. Open discussion and theorycrafting for Purple (Legendary) Orbital Supply Drops. To start, I typically play duo and was able to down a Red OSD with our 2 Gigas, roughly level 310, and it was fairly easy. We attempted a Purple using the same strat but healing with a pig between rounds which was needed. Managed to get to wave 5 but then our Gigas enraged from what I assume were the alpha/enraged Rexes and being overwhelmed and we failed. The first 4 rounds we did lose 5-10k health each but weren't in risk of enraging. Some thoughts on future strats. I have seen some speculation about using a Tek Gen and Forcefield. Has anyone tried this yet? The thought I had was to use the Gen/Forcefield along with Turret Velonas inside, cannon fodder Rexes outside, and giga riders.
