Sorry all.  I'm usually only logged into the ATLAS account, and not my personal account.  

I also don't usually chime in because there is nothing for me to say.  It doesn't seem the Q&A questions are satisfactory, so we may discontinue them for now, and only post when there is a definite timeline for things.

Satisfactory? As in, we don't tell you what you want to hear? Or it's just easier if you don't look, like as in, putting blinders on..........................................

Did someone talk of wipes? That would def do it for me, as it is I only get on a play a little bit depending on how bad the lag is or how badly battleye keeps me out.

There is absolutely no reason to wipe if their is a decay timer, that makes no sense at ll.

There is definitely a wipe coming i just hope its later rather than sooner. It is still early access and wipes right now mean more map features. I dont want it either but it is inevitable.

Here's my Ask A Pirate question: When are you going to focus on server performance issues, rather than add "new and exciting things"? We currently do not need new things added to the game. We need what we already have to be fixed first, including the ridiculous lag.  Fix the game, then add new stuff.

Ok so I wonder when promises actually start meaning a freaking thing. Did you read it here on the forum or is it because it is early access that you say this? The answer determines if I uninstall this puppy for a few years.

What promises it’s early access I think to many forget that concept, you knew it when you downloaded it that’s it’s early access which means anything you do now won’t exist at official release. Anything can change at anytime at any point. That’s the purpose of a early access game, it’s testing.

Question: Are you considering more PvE ocean jobs like strictly whaling, lobstering, shrimping or fishing for rare aquatic stuff? 

Answer: Yes! You get it! We really want to put way more things for players to do on the ocean and that is one line of our two prong strategy. We are halftime working on cleaning up the code, which means removing bugs and readdressing broken systems, and the other half of the time we are focused on more ocean-centric features. 

I'm looking forward to some of these PvE ocean jobs. It would be awesome having a crab boat, setting strings with the 30 pots I've made and my team mate using a grappling hook to get the pots. As long as the ocean jobs are rewarding and you can make out a decent living catching crab, shrimp or even some long lining this would add to the experience in game.

There's a long way to go before this becomes a reality though as you guys (the dev team) need to focus on fixing what is already implemented but I like the ideas that are being considered.

And the storms that spawn cyclones are way to often cut back on the spawn rate that way people can spend more time on the sea.

My single player crashes every time I exit the session. Made a ticket about it including the crash report, but bc it has nothing to do with what they're currently "focusing"  on, I doubt the ticket will ever be read. I'm almost certain that it even says (just before making the ticket) that the  "team" is currently focused on X,Y,Z aspects of the game, and tickets not dealing in those areas might not get read. I personally hope I didn't actually see that part.

-- EDIT -- Thankfully I don't see that messsage about what types of tickets will be read, and what won't.

Ask a Pirate Question: When will more elaborate PVE content make its way into the game? Right now FOY/PS are a joke, and a no brainer Kraken fight and Ghost ship fight. Only thing that is remotely challenging is the Yeti. What is being done to appease the PVE side of Atlas?

Here is my question: why was my character deleted off the one and only pve Xbox server after buying day one?

 

when I bought ark Xbox day one, while in early access and after, I never lost my character? (Until legacy servers were made)

If there are major changes to the game and/or servers, a while can be necessary.  In the case of the most recent one, they re-orged the servers, grids, islands, and such.
