  1. 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
  2. @George Catcher Fugget, at this point and with the game in this condition may as well make it a 10x event
  3. @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..
  5. 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?
  7. @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..
  8. Some advice for the devs, piggybacking off of @NewLexican From The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Baltasar Gracian (Christopher Maurer translation) #27 Better to be intensive than extensive. Perfection isn't quantity, but QUALITY. #57 Thoughtful people are safer. Do something WELL and that is quick enough... Only perfection is noticed and only success endures. #66 Take care to make things turn out well. Some people scruple more over pointing things in the right direction than in successfully reaching their goals... It is an art to set aside art when you must do so to bring things to a happy conclusion. #91 Never act unless you think it prudent to do so. ...It is dangerous to undertake something when you doubt its wisdom. it would be safer to not act at all. Prudence refuses to deal in probability: it ALWAYS walks under the midday sun of reason. #92 Transcendent wisdom. This is the first and highest rule in acting and speaking... An ounce of prudence is worth a pound of cleverness. It's more a matter of walking surely than courting vulgar applause. #136 Size up the matter. Take pulse of the business at hand. Many see the trees but not the forest, or bark up the wrong tree, speaking endlessly, reasoning uselessly, without going to the pith of the matter. They go round and round, tiring themselves and us, and never get to what is important. They waste time and patience on what it would be better to leave alone and later there is no time for what they have left. #147 Don't be inaccessible. ...The person who doesn't listen is a hopeless fool. Even the most independent of people ought to heed friendly advice, and even sovereigns are happy to learn from others... We all need a friend who feels free to scold us and give us advice... We need the faithful mirror of a confidant. If we value that mirror it will set us free from deceit. Post is getting too long. Zero clue if your listening anyway. Good luck.
  9. @ScarlettSwagger Few more tidbits... 1. The meat consumption is insane going from juvenile to adult. Can't remember if its 5 or 7 imprints, anyway, i would FILL 2 troughs with salted meat every 8 hours (12000 meat) for cub batches of ~8, still lost several batches due to starvation just by oversleeping a couple of hours. I was just hobby breeding but I'm 100% serious, 3 or more filled troughs recommended per 8 hours depending on litter size. 2. I parked my breeding females out of range with the bears also for the most part, once they're mature the food requirement isn't bad at all. 3. Can't remember if i raised the bottom floor/ campfire area EXACTLY 2 foundations but I think that's what it was. The important part is getting the campfires right below the mating/ birthing area to radiate upwards though... So basically just be aware they require ridiculous amounts of food growing from juvenile to adult. Was VERY fun though, some had ~750 HP, STAM, WT, w 200+ melee. Some of my dedicated sidekicks had 1000+HPS (all pretty much fully imprinted). Also I was just a part time breeder, fyi. Once again good luck, warned ya atleast TWICE about the food
  10. @ScarlettSwagger Details Regular Map (Maelstrom) Tundra PvE Breeding Area (Top Floor) 1. Two story (4 walls high) w vaulted ceilings. Top floor was breed area. Also I suggest building it 2-3 foundations above ground level so snakes can't glitch through the wall. Quick and dirty way is to make all inner foundations thatch and wrap it in wood. Stone IS NOT necessary. 2. One tile in from the outer wall I placed wooden doorframes on 3 sides of the 2nd floor. 3. Between the outer wall and inner perimeter doorframes I placed as many campfires as i could fit 4. I left enough room on the entry wall for a preservation bag w ice, a water barrel and large storage box for saddles and various crap. 5. Used a small gate w ramps for entry. Whole breeding area was about 8x6 tiles, maybe? Plus about 8x6 for the conga line outside. 6. I was able to place the stud in the middle w a female on each side and breed 2 at a time. As my stable of female lions grew (~20) I would line them up towards the entry in a conga line and rotate until i got to the first one impregnated. This resulted in ~2 births every 3-5 minutes to give ample sorting time. *** Very Important Bottom Floor *** 1. Raised the floor 2 foundations using foundations in the center, ceiling tiles on the edge and added half stairs. 2. Crawled around and spread ~6 campfires AROUND THE CENTER DIRECTLY UNDER the mating area. I usually only needed the center 4 or so. Leave space to crawl between to light them and refill. 3. When built correctly the campfires from the bottom floor will be ~touching the bottom of the second floor. In real life it would burn down , but, in Atlas the heat from the campfires underneath radiates safely to the 2nd floor breeding area. Few pro tips A. However much raw meat you think you'll need, triple it. B. Park Bears away from the feeding troughs or they'll eat the meat for the maturing lions. C. Lots of ice and preserving bags D. I used salted meat in the feed troughs since it lasts 8 times longer than raw. E. If your doing this for resale most buyers will want tigers for the swipe and bleed. F. Don't freak out about the hot and cold icons above the new borns, just check their HPs, usually they'll be fine when you get practice. At night the temperature drops so I would often get cold icons but they rarely lost more than 2HPs out of 35 and immediately healed when the temperature returned to normal. G. Once I had my litter sorted i drug them to the corner and usually operated w 4 1st floor campfires and ~7 2nd story fires. H. Don't forget to disable wandering, follow, actiivate ignore group whistles and set them to passive. I. Occasionally, in addition to all the aforementioned campfires, I had to use ~8 torches on a switch, placed on the doorframes, to get breeding to occur. Cold front maybe? Final thing, this system is 2+months old. Good luck.
  11. @Nacona We'll just agree to disagree then since I am 100% positive it can be done. Have a nice day.
  12. @Nacona You do realize that the PvP servers already have PvE areas right? The Freeports Also MANY other games have been able to find various ways to balance PvP and PvE on the same server for over a decade now. I play Roblox games with my kids where they manage to pull it off. It's not hard. Even on TOTAL PvP servers. The system 1 Identify the griefing scenario. 2 Fix the griefing scenario. Thats it
