  1. But the player numbers are no low because there hasn't been a wipe. You have a few friends who would start playing, but that doesn't warrant a wipe. It will take much more than a simple wipe to bring the numbers up to a decent amount.
  2. There are still many NA players on EU PvE who decided not to start over again a second time when NA PvE released. You can't use those numbers to show whether EU or NA is bigger in PvE.

    Devs please: ships disappear after only a few days

    I'm saying it because i've read enough people raise the possible link to subs. It's not necessarily decay timers don't reset, it may possibly be if you do not enter the sub (i.e. step foot on it) then if the decay timer of the sub hits 0 it takes the ship with it. This is what people suspect may be happening to ships with subs. However, not all ships that unexplainably disappear have subs attached to them.

    Devs please: ships disappear after only a few days

    There is a possibility that subs attached to ships can cause decay of the actual ship even if you step on, anchor and move the ship without doing anything with the sub. But if not all those ships had subs then that doesn't quite pin point the issue.
  5. Please give your reasons why you think a wipe will help fill the servers up more? Are you honestly saying the servers are low pop because there hasn't been a wipe in the last 4 months?

    @NoobieDooz did any of the ships have a sub on them?
  7. Can't guarantee this works, but i've taken it from ARK and a lot of the cheats are the same for both games. cheat addexperience 1000 0 0 - this one gives yourself experience. cheat giveexptoplayer <id> <how much> <tribeshared> <preventsharing> - this one may give another player experience. You can find their ID through showmyadminmanager.

    Backup Recovery (Local)

    Yup this is advisable. I did this with ARK, just manually back them up each time you finish a session. Or if you're good at scripts, could write one to do it each time. But I can't help with script writing.

    Q&A Community vs. Devs

    If they do crossplay (which I doubt) then yes it would need a wipe, but the game wiping isn't the issue that's preventing people playing. Therefore as I said, even if there is a wipe it won't bring in players, at least not for long, because that is not the real problems with the game. I also doubt they would ever consider crossplay during EA. The most you can probably expect with cross play is Xbox/Win 10.

    Q&A Community vs. Devs

    That's what people said about the first wipe. It was true, it did happen, but didn't last. I don't see another wipe being any different, because the fact there is no wipe right now, or no confirmation there will never be a wipe is not the reason for low numbers, so a wipe wouldn't fix the issues. If there's a wipe and it brings people back, they'll come back saying yay fresh start, can get my island, etc etc etc, then soon realise the real reason for low numbers (whatever that reason is) still exists and those same players will leave again for the same reasons they left the first time. I'd love for Atlas to turn things around, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. Sadly I log in once maybe twice a week to fill trough, step on ships, log off. I guess I'm one of those that are clinging on to hope things will improve so log on to keep my belongings.

    Hey DEV's where you at?

    21k negative reviews during opening weekend? Where you getting your information from? The game has in total 23,597 reviews with approx 65% of those negative. So how was there 21k neg reviews during opening weekend? Yeah there's money behind the game, but they still need people to play the game, that's the whole point of EA. If they wanted to develop the game their own way they wouldn't bother with EA. So i'll say again that the players mean everything to GS, and i'm pretty sure the devs themselves would not say otherwise. But seeing as you like referring to the toxic waste that buy these games then you include yourself in that because all you do is attack those that disagree with you, and that itself is toxic.

    False rumors about wipe !

    No they aren't hiding content to use after wipe. In fact they've been releasing content in between mega updates like Blackwood, and single player. There's nothing to suggest they are hiding content because they are wiping soon. Talk about scaremongering.

    False rumors about wipe !

    Most people? Where have you got this info? And how do they know it will all be lost soon?

    False rumors about wipe !

    This has lack of thought. The last mega patch was start of June, I suspect the next one is due very soon. Steam charts has nothing to do with whether there will be a wipe or not. If steam charts are really low, why would that indicate a wipe is coming, when they'd probably lose some of those because of a wipe. No wipe is going to help steam charts, because a wipe is not the problem.

    I give up...

    Earlier the person stated they've been playing games on PC for 30 years. It's pretty easy to then read the sentence you quoted as being that over 30 years of games that Atlas is counted as one of their absolute favourite games.

    Okay Grapeshot - you had me faithful. but after...

    I found where 3 weeks came from. In Patch 18.0 (pre-wipe) they added this: - Ships that have been inactive for 3 weeks on PvE servers and Golden Age Ruin servers will now vaporize (tackling the abandoned ramshackle boats/rafts on maps) Then they immediately reversed it and removed it from patch notes because if I remember correctly it caused issues with ships disappearing that weren't meant to straight after patch went live. They said they reintroduce it when they fix it. I suspect it got reintroduced at wipe (as there'd be no existing ships anyway) but they failed to state the decay time. So some people, myself included, will have assumed it was still 3 weeks. Was driving me crazy trying to find where I had seen 3 weeks before.

    The ship is gone

    It was confirmed by Jat and Dollie that ships on PvE decay in 2 weeks not 3, and you just need to step foot on them, physically touch them.

    False rumors about wipe !

    The way they described NPC encampments, if I remember correctly, is that they need to be destroyed before an island can be claimed, although I could be wrong in that. But it would make much more sense to wipe, so that NPC encampments can spawn anywhere on the islands, otherwise if they added it now you'd get encampments spawning most likely inside bases. It just makes much more sense to wipe. And there's no other obvious reason to me as to why it didn't come to official, or at least get put on a PTR. As for your example of grabbing 5 islands and just wiping them, I doubt they would go down that route as that is 100% unfair on the playerbase to get dev wiped for an update when all others don't get touched. They should handle wipes as wipe all or nothing. As for wiping player data I don't see that as necessary, with the exception of maybe at official launch.

    False rumors about wipe !

    My first thought that the reason they haven't introduced the wild NPC encampments onto official servers yet is because for it to work properly they'd need to wipe. A lot of people told me I'm wrong and that i'm trying to stir up wipe rumours. I mean it just takes commonsense to realise it, but I guess those people are pretending because they don't want a wipe. I'd find it hard to believe they can introduce it without a wipe. Official release, I dunno, ARK never wiped on official release, but they did add new servers. The official servers on Atlas isn't as simple as just adding new servers, so for that reason they may wipe, but it's not guaranteed. Who knows what the server population be at release anyway.

    Okay Grapeshot - you had me faithful. but after...

    Thank you Jat, and Dollie on Twitter for confirming this. Now I'm confused where I saw 21 days. But still good to know.

    They never spoke about a game going for 30 years. Instead of trying to bully someone that may not have English as their first language, try using your own brain and simply read what they said and figure it out yourself. It's pretty easy to understand what they were saying when they talked about 30 years.

    Okay Grapeshot - you had me faithful. but after...

    We still need confirmation of how ship decay works on PvE @Jatheish @Dollie We so far have the players guessing (we shouldn't have to guess) that the following things are required, yet all contradict one another. Decay is 7 days Decay is 21 days Stepping foot (boarding) on ships or fast travel to ships refresh timers Stepping on ships and simply raising and lowering anchor is enough Stepping on ships, raising anchor, slightly moving ship, reanchoring refreshes timers. Ships have been inactive for longer than 3 weeks with no issues So we need to know once and for all, only the developers know how this works, what exactly refreshes ships decay timers, and how long is the decay timer? Either that or simply place the decay timer on screen when you look at the ship just like structures. This is simple basic things that should not require repeated requests. People shouldn't have to guess at this and learn from losing ships.

    Okay Grapeshot - you had me faithful. but after...

    @Jatheish @Dollie Can we please get confirmation of this? What exactly do we need to do to refresh timers of ships every 21 days? Do we need to board them? Do we need to unachor them? These are the sorts of things that people need to know and should not be left to guess and find out. I'm under the impression it is simply boarding them, but others claim it is unanchoring them. We need this clarified once and for all.
