    New World Map!

    Ahoy Pathfinders, 

     :anchor: News from the Cabin :anchor:

    Major news! We have been working on our plans for some time and getting ready to give all you Pathfinders the details of our new ATLAS journey. We’re growing the development team and we’ll be starting to introduce those team members to you next week!

    Updates! Our first major change to the ATLAS will be a whole new World Map which is designed to intensify the fun at higher levels and make it a bit safer for lower level players. This is just the first step in the greater plan to shift gameplay from the land out on to the open seas! This new World Map drops in the first half of July for both PC and Xbox.

    Another piece of ATLAS’ grander plan is to focus on PVP play with an eye towards breaking out PVE play into something else.   As part of this plan, we’ll be taking NA PVE offline and leaving the EU PVE server as the official PVE world for the time being.  

    Bringing a new World Map online will require a complete reset of the system, something we don’t take lightly.  We wouldn’t do it if we didn’t feel that it was vital to the new experience we want to create for you all.

    We have new goals for supporting the game and delivering regular (dare we say monthly!) content updates that will bring joy and piracy back to the open seas, with plans for Trade Winds, Farms, Warehouses, and more! Stick with us on this ride and we’ll sail the high seas together!

    :wheel:

    Happy Sailing,

    - ATLAS Crew

    You know they have faith in the patch when they preemptively shut down all other forums to avoid the backlash.

    There are more classy ways to say F*** YOU to the community that purchased your product.

    cheers

     

    Also, no Facebook post. Wonder why???? Bet it will get wonderful responses...

    Just my imaginative hunch, but I have a feeling that this new map is going to have PVE and PVP elements combined into one. Perhaps some parts of the map will be PVE, and majority parts PVP.

    Why would they do this if you ask me? They want to combine what's left of the population and save more money from server hosting. 🤣

    I was thinking the same, and I would be a huge advocate for PvEvP. I’d love to not have to worry about my base being raided in a PvE zone, but still have the ability to go to a PvP zone to fight. Many private servers follow this model, and I am currently starting up on one until the wipe since I am a NA PVE player.

    I hope there is a special hell they all go to where after 9+ months of working on their game it is deleted, and they have to start over. lol. The best part will be that their employers will promise them that they will only have to do it once, before the 9+ months.

     

    The best part will be in this hell they aren't paid.

    It'll be like that Zeus parable, the rolling the stone up the hill one. Cause lets be honest, that's what their doing. They don't give a fuck about this community.

    One option is to wait until the game is finished and out of early access before playing. That way the chances of your progress being removed is severely reduced.
    Unfortunately, when early access is treated as it should be, a process of change and development for a game, then such things as wipes and lost progress do happen.

    Just FYI there was a global chat that popped up right before the last wipe in October or September, the week before Xbox launch.

    It said it would be the final wipe.

    You would know this if you actually played the game, but you apparently don't.

    Maybe a refund??  I just got the game a couple months and now its done?  No PVE?  I left World of Warcraft cause they are pushing everyone to PVP, and look at this!!  I didn't see any warnings that this may be the direction you were going or I would have spent my money else where.  thanks for nothing

    They're forcing us PvE players to move to the EU servers if we want to continue  PvE...albeit with more lag I'm sure.... They should allow us to transfer over (for free) and not only keep our levels, but at the very least keep our tames as well. Ships and bases can be rebuilt....finding that perfect tame you worked so hard to get isn't exactly easy to get again. Yes, the game is "in early development" but I'm sure they can do something like this for us, otherwise it's true what many players have been saying: they'll lose a lot of players.

    i thought ya'll promised not to wipe again after the last time. I have a lot invested in this game and every time i get my self built up  I hear you are going to wipe again. that is so wrong after you said no more wipes you will lose more player doing this because they are tired of  feeling like they have a investment in the game and nobody really does anymore

    Am I the only one that hopes and prays  that they add new ships to the game every time I see there's an update?

    May I say they never said they were scrapping pve completely. They are taking down the na server to begin changing pve completely. As far as the wipe, YAY! Maybe I can actually explore some of the islands that the over builders lag me out of. Seriously, y'all want to stay on land, breed animals and build unnecessary buildings go to ARK. Let Atlas be for the pirates and explorers. 

    I am looking forward to seeing the changes as they come out. Part of playing an unfinished game. Minecraft used to change every week. Ark changed a lot as it developed. If you seriously built massive structures on a game that is a pre-release and you're getting upset because it's getting wiped go play a finished game...

    Wow... Kinda missed a few important details in that broad stroke there...

     

    Any ETA on the end of "pre-release" status? Ready to take responsibility for your product yet?....

     

    Come on. Anytime now...

     

    I agree with previous posters stating this is an exit strategy. Hopefully I'm wrong to doubt.

     

    Going to go dump all my gold and things since you just tied my hands and sucker punched me. Wow

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!??????????? removing NA PVE I suppose we should expect nothing less from Wild Card. I've been on EU it lags soo bad when accessing from the West Coast. I'd ask you (Grapeshot/Wild Card) to reconsider these actions. Invest in your servers and just add a new one, why punish the North Americans?

    Too late they are already doing it as we speak. That is why they shut the forums down.

    OMG we just took our break and started playing again the last couple of weeks. What kind of "heads" up is this? There should have been a much better forewarning. Last time I buy their products. We were in mid play when the NA Server went down just now. They make an announcement yesterday and then pull down the server today??? Whom ever is at the helm needs to walk the freaking plank. NO CONSIDERATION to players.

    Pooter, so you are saying they took the server down today while we were playing?

    They haven’t announced it but taking down the one server they said would come down along wit all their social media is a pretty sure sign. 
     

    remember, even though they wanted to release it in early July, they will have to take down the server early like last time to implement the new changes

    Thanks Pooter. I don't read toxic social media. I read the forums and what the splash screen.  Still, this just turns my stomach.

    Your two cents wasn't worth the time it took you to type it, and certainly not two cents.  NPC's and Tames bridge the disadvantage of a small company versus a big company.  If the devs  implemented your suggestion ... PVE servers would turn into mega companies owning island and every small company  would be kept in the stone age.   NPC's and tames are still disadvantage to actual players but it helps keep things from being as unbalanced as they would be with out them. 

    None of this would matter if land content is less of a focus anyway.  We're pirates.  We sail around and fight on the sea primarily.  Best bet for this game's survival is to break away from the cookie-cutter model of ARK and make sea content more viable, and none of these suggestions do anything to hinder that whatsoever.  If anything, it's only a benefit to separate ATLAS from ARK.  It's alright if you disagree though, we can both hold our own opinions.

    I'm excited to see the new map either way!

    I said are you ready to take responsibility for your product yet? Any ETA on the end of the "pre-release" status double talk?

     

    Why should i invest ANY time or energy in a new map? Is the NA Server gone? Decision final? Any carry over to new map?

     

    Y'all might want to talk to the marketing dept before ya go all wipey wipey again after this.... Jagasses could give an Aspirin a headache.

     

    Wow

    So much for NA PVE having till the middle of NEXT month, Y'all give your players one day notice that they are going to lose everything that have worked for. Great way to show that you care about your customer base.

    So, thanks for the warning before taking the NA PVE server down. Always nice to work real hard in preparation for plans the next day and then go to get on just to find the server no longer exists.

    I was hoping for one last trip out on the seas before all my hard work was just gone ~ You couldn’t give us a warning way earlier than the day before? Y’all knew of this awhile ago if the new world map is suppose to come out next month and you let all us keep on going building boats, bases, farming, etc. for you to give us one day with no clear time of when you were taking na pve down ~

    I’ve defended this game many times but this is just a really crummy way to treat NA players 😞 ~ I don’t mind the wipe I’m bothered by us getting one day and not being told we only had one day because the message we were given wasn’t clear ~

    Also I hope after the new world map comes out we are not expected to play on EU but from what I read it’s looking that way ~
