  1. Haven't played in months but I thought i read a patchnote saying there was a way... anyway heres what we used to do.. Unless something changed from several montths ago WHENEVER my trading partners or I had an issue we... 1 All got in chat together. 2 Demoed our markets 3 Then 1 by 1 we synced them up If private mode is still an option and functions then maybe it will help with the trade request spam, i doubt it though Good luck
  2. @Whitehawk & @George of the jungle yea I'm still befuddled as to why companies go to mass market via mmo's when they don't have a single player or its bugged. Strikes me as a learn to crawl before you walk type of no brainer. 90% of Atlas' problems could have been avoided this way. I do understand it, I suppose, under some scenarios.. A large, well funded company w years of industry experience directly relating to mmo's well then i suppose it would be logical. The industry giants, so to speak. However, they've stated on numerous occasions that their development team is small, so I don't get it.. To build BIG a stable foundation is required. The "foundation" is single player or small scale matchmaking. From there, when the core experience is defined, stable and popular THEN run with it.. They've spent 2 years putting the wagon in front of the horse. Period.
  3. Expanding on @Whitehawk comments, they've had literally years worth of constructive criticism and the game just keeps getting worse. I joined between the 2nd{?} and 3rd(?) wipe, was pretty happy and was encouraging people who had left the game to return. Then they stuck it in sideways, completely wiped all my progress. The dictionary definition of "prerelease" is "existing or occurring prior to the release of something". The game is mislabeled as "prerelease" when it should be labled as "under development". Theres been like 5+ wipes Core mechanics undergoing complete overhaul Bugs that are persistent and expanding constantly Many features or adjustments are rolled out partially then just left in half ass status I could go on ad nauseam I quit playing months ago but unless something radical happens not only will this company never receive a dollar of my money, nor an ounce of my time, but i will encourage anyone who asks to boycott the products of the affiliated companies. They're literally charging people to beta test and then shitting all over the people who participate. I dunno if they lack leadership, just dgf or have TOO MANY leaders. Either way they've turned a potential G.O.A.T. into a clusterfuck. My 2 cents.
  4. Could be mistaken but theoretically I think no matter what settings used an insider can just sink your ships via overloading the crew,.. So, for example, just go to freeport, purchase crew then transfer them all onto the ship targeted for sabotage. Not sure if the company settings mentioned by @Whitehawk prevented this or not.
  5. Don't even need to see the map, your statements contradict eachother. "High level areas w valuable resources in the North... Resources spread out so that nobody dominates valuable resources... Trade winds so that you can travel the map faster""... Soooo, um, basically, the top companies head North, gear up, then use the highway to return South and extend their advantage? Am i missing something? Did you create a small-tribe-invincibilty-platform-rabbit-hat that I missed in the notes? I'm usually not the type to slow down and gawk at a car accident but wow.
  6. A friendly rebuttal. Alot of people start games as solos They become solo when friends switch games Sometimes they're in a small guild but they may have an odd day off... Theres 50 more reasons probably... They neglect solo play at their own peril. Gamers tend to lean towards introverted personality types. Even in a Mega its a SINGLE person connecting to game and interacting by default. I've happily moved on to an mmo that caters to everyone. Also, left my character logged in for ~20 hours on accident and didn't get booted. Its frikken perfect. I can set my character up to cook 2000 meals, go to work, put them away and go pvp or pve. I've happily dropped 100bucks voluntarily also.. like tipping good for good service. I didn't like Ark but I liked this game until the wipe that removed NA. I was excited at Atlas' potential. NOW though, reading this last update,... Nopin the fuck out. Easy call to uninstall. * sidenote I'll go bump my other thread so you can hear it from a game developer speaking at a conference
  7. @George Catcher Fugget, at this point and with the game in this condition may as well make it a 10x event
  8. @George Catcher & @Nacona Just curious, where is that 5x event Pic from? They still think other message platforms are more important than their Official Forums? Really? Going to play the other video game thats earned my business. Sidenote, from here on I refuse to refer to them as "seasons", they're fucking WIPES because the developers can't get their shit straight. Period. I'm losing count what will the next wipe be #4 or #5?

    If I was using a translator it wouldn't be a guess..
  10. Interesting video. I figure some of ya have some downtime waiting on the next patch.. I definitely prefer small group or solo play over large groups. https://www.youtube.com/tv#/watch?v=b2l2ZxNhCSg Thoughts?

    Venturing a guess for a goof.. 1. Web site in french isn't working correctly? 2. The support ticket system isn't answering the questions posed? 3. Slow response time? 4. Fix it and maybe the old saying about breaking a few eggs to make an omelette? 5. Thank you for listening to my complaints? Is my paraphrasing close? At 20 points per did I score about 80 out of 100? Anyone?
  12. @Grayson I don't agree w everything @Chucksteak says about you but I will offer some possibilities to consider. 1. Single Player/ Co Op may provide the experience your craving, if they ever manage to get it sorted. 2. Same for private servers, once again, if they ever get the mechanics stabilized. 3. Worst case vote with your feet. I'm on hiatus myself and theres plenty of games to choose from. Final thing, I definitely flipped my shit when they pulled the "surprise-wipe-no-more-NA PvE" for season 3, so I sympathize w your frustrations. I don't understand why they don't realize the importance of catering to BOTH play styles in a ONE CHARACTER experience. Pretty simple.. Some days I wanna PvP, some days I wanna PvE and some days I don't want to log in at all. Not rocket science, unless they cut a deal that pays per customer hours played, I heard thats a thing.. Dunno. Next few months will be interesting to watch either way if one is sufficiently detached..
