  1. Wow. Even better than tames? That would make the months the whole team spent on making those tames irrelevant lol. It takes. A good amount of time to design and implement a tame. Even one. That is complex content. working on something that is already existing such as the claim system, it would be very easy to just delete that crap. too much time has already been spent on tames so even if they wanted to, that just won’t happen. Too much time has been invested already. No turning back now. except the claim system. That is a very easy erase that hopefully happens soon.
  2. I actually like pillar spam. It means I can build where I want to. I never had a problem with build anywhere with ark. I guess pve might have a problem with it but pvp? Nah, I’ll just blow it up if I want to build there. bothing wrong with pve by the way, I have never had anything negative to say about pve people. I am just different. The claim system for pvp is very stupid. Bottom line Holy crap. Ok, this forum isn’t that bad. Smh. I do fantasy football and all but 100 bucks on pre season? Time to go to some meetings lol
  3. I gotta tell you though boomer, even if I was playing the game I would still have the same opinion. I try to stay out of topics that are directly linked to gameplay but there is another aspect. When it comes to opinion and not facts I will always give it. That is the one circumstance that regardless of playing experience, I won’t change my opinion. Take the claim system for example. Once the console release happens I know for a fact that I will not like it. Once I am playing the game I will come back here like I have always and give my opinion of distaste for the claim system. I wont have some epiphany to where I end up liking it. I don’t need to play the game to l ow what I dislike. sure I get tired of it, I also realize it won’t stop until console release. I am more concerned about the people that tell me that and that is the only thing they can say to me lol i like debating with you but it is slim pickings for a good conversation here lol

    Mega update 3?

    Console launch dude. I know you were trying to be sarcastic there but even when the EA launch of pc came out it was called a launch. what you are thinking about is the “official release” of the game. That is what will be in 1 1/2 years from now.
  5. Even with a high quality pick you could never get metal like an anky can(in ark at least) which is how it should be. It would definitely water down the importance of tames and I know that is what you want, which is fine. I however do not want that so we will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

    Mega update 3?

    No. Having a successful launch would be the most important thing right now.
  7. How was that not a valid reason? and I can tell you that personally even though I LOVE tames and you know I do, if I could harvest just as efficiently as tames I myself would not go through the hassle of taming. More efficient gathering is the reward for taking the extra time to get a better “tool” so to speak. If the “tool” isn’t better then it isn’t worth the time to obtain it. That is a perfectly valid reason.
  8. Oh I didn’t say I loved them or their decisions. I just said they know what they are good at and making tames is one thing they are actually really good at. edit: why do you have 3 copies?

    Mega update 3?

    Yeah and we saw how the servers handle that many people. And that was without there already being bases and ships. A wipe is needed at the very least to be able to see if the servers can even handle that many people. it doesn’t matter what it was designed for. It didn’t work before and it probably still won’t. The less strain the better. That way once everyone is building up they can see if the servers can not only handle all of the players but also the player generated content. there are plenty of reasons to wipe for crossplay. Not just one.
  10. Ah man. I got pisses off for you after I read that story. Yeah I would definitely be in a bad mood as well. taming can definitely be a pain sometimes. I was always putting up some kind of defenses while I was taming on ark. Even put up auto turrets one time because we were taming a 150 giga and I wasn’t going to take any chances on losing any levels. of course people shouldn’t be forced but I don’t see them as being forced. If there wasn’t a skill tree for hand harvesting I would understand, but they do have it so I don’t see it as forced. they shouldn’t be able to get just as much resources as a tame though. That just shouldn’t happen. They have the choice to use them or not.
  11. That is why they have the hand harvesting skill. But no, hand harvesting should not be just as efficient as tames. That really doesn’t make sense because then tames wouldn’t be important. People have the option to harvest by hand or with a tame. They can choose the less efficient if they want but it will remain less efficient. that is the fantasy of atlas. Everyone says fantasy, well I say taming a bear and riding it is fantasy. There we go taming is the fantasy aspect of atlas. if the Megas and other companies want to alliance up and not be pirates that is on them, not the company. For all of the stuff about the game not being pirate enough, the blame falls on the players for that part. It’s their fault for becoming Megas. It their fault for joining an alliance. this company has messed up a lot with things like the claim system and vitamin system and so forth, but in the end the players killed the pirates.

    Atlas and steam charts

    As we know the atlas steam charts have been broken for close to 5 days. We have had the other website to go off of but it doesn’t really do full justice to the numbers since that is only official. luckily we are only at -44 this month so far. That does show a sign of the decline slowing down and that the there are some hardcore players out there that won’t let a decline in playerbase stop them from gaming. the main problem is that we are about 300 less on average than pre-wipe numbers. Everyone swore up and down that the ONLY reason for the low numbers was that a wipe was coming. I tried to help them understand that was not the case but it didn’t work. We are now months after the wipe and we are at numbers that are lower than before the wipe. here comes the “devs come care about numbers” stuff. It doesn’t matter if the devs care or not lmao. What matters is if the existing players care about numbers which they do. at this point it doesn’t matter what the devs think. People are leaving because other people are leaving. That is pretty common and the norm. i am pretty sure it is time to bring factions in and finally be rid of the claim system. I am sure the people still playing it like the claim system and will disagree, which is fine, but everyone else left so it was definitely a problem. The only thing we know for sure is, the numbers are still going down and even though they have slowed, it is inevitable to continue for awhile.

    Devs broken?

    I totally get where you are coming from forb. The thing is ever since ark they are usually very active on Twitter. To me, this is usually the best way to communicate with them. I wouldn’t bother with reddit... got some ($&’nr’s) can’t be too careful on there lol I am totally with you on having announcements. However, there are times when more important matters come into play. That will happen sometimes. After jats explanation, he was well within his rights. that always need to be taken into account.il ow what it is like to have to be gone/absent for an unspecific amount of time. I’ll give them a hard time until I have an explanation, but once the explanation comes then you will accept it.

    Atlas and steam charts

    To be honest, even the short videos of the Wild West bs, was pretty good. Still copy and paste but pretty good. please boomer, at the very least don’t forget that Jeremy(through unethical business practices) got sued and that is the reason snail games got involved in the first place. jeremy screwed ark. Ark didn’t screw ark. Be yoda all you want to. Once you get here in the real world you will see. Jeremy left ark.... ark got better. Jeremy made atlas.... atlas is there is a very close comparison between the two. Don’t bother with the toy don’t play . No matter what anyone says, I see the numbers and the numbers are way more valuable than a person(lol) saying I don’t play the game.

    Yeah but I quoted you. Thank you by the way

    Mega update 3?

    The thing is you need to understand that Xbox will not crossplay with steam. If it does you will be wiped. If not then cool, you are good. If so, then you will he starting from the beginning.

    Atlas and steam charts

    WTF? What is this Wild West bs you are talking about?
  18. Yeah in ark, tames were a definite necessity. With atlas it seems as though it is not. i have not played the game mind you but the one thing I have learned from everyone is that the skill tree opts for a branch that could almost make hand harvesting almost as efficient as tame harvesting. This is a very sad conclusion. Takes are very important whether people wan them to be or not. That is what this company does. here is one thing everyone needs to remember and they usually don’t not remember this. “ this company built themselves on tames. This company tried something new. Regardless of it being new, tames will remain. I realize you want something totally and completely different but that will simply not happen” besides all the EA babble, and others saying if you don’t like it then go play another game. I love hearing those words because I will he playing ark very soon and if you don’t like that? You can go play another game. It’s time to deal with it. none of this was directed at you @The D Legacy it was just needed to be said. This co pant knows what they are good at and they know what they aren’t good at. I personally can not wait to tame 100’s of the new animals available. That is what I am most excited for with atlas. I shouldn’t be? Yeah I am because that is probably the best additions that have been brought in. to the new tames.

    Post your idea for how to make sailing less dull.

    That would definitely help Megas. Not saying it is a bad idea. Just saying who it would help

    Post your idea for how to make sailing less dull.

    Yeah I can’t blame you there. Don’t think I was arguing with you so definitely wasn’t. I was just saying I am doing ok lol. but yeah I am very excited about scarlet. My wife is going to hate her the very unfortunate thing is one of my good buddies is going to get the ps5 gifted to him and he tried to change it but they are a ps family. I might have to buy scarlet and ps5. Smh. the good news is my buddy is getting a really good pc soon(within a couple of weeks but for you tube purposes) so you can see our builds. Evidently if you want good YouTube conetwnt you need a good pc. I watch YouTube but have never streamed so I have no clue on that. i really don’t want to have to buy 3 systems so the sooner they figure this out the better. getting a little annoyed with all of these systems. good thing about Xbox is that as long as I order online my buddies can download any game I buy. Not sure how that works either though. I don’t buy physical opuses anymore though. cant wait for man of modan. I love the whole interactive movie thing. Choices equals actual consequences. I love it. and borderlands 3? Yeah dude, you can’t beat borderlands.

    I have flown birds before the flier nerf and stuff didn’t render in sure, but my Xbox handles it fine. And that was with 400% speed and flying. Don’t worry my one x can easily handle it

    Post your idea for how to make sailing less dull.

    Bottom line is that if people are actually playing another game while sailing that is stupid AF. while playing sea of thieves, I might text someone back because I had the time to but I sure as hell wasnt playing another game. this is becoming very unacceptable. Increase sailing speed by atleast 3x if not 5x. That old stuff just isn’t going to work. This isn’t a sailing game mind you. A pirate game yes, a sailing game no. definitely not happy with hearing how people spend their time sailing.
  23. Sound good man. Totally understand things happen, especially when family was involved. smh at Chris lol. there needs to be an answer on the crossplay jat. Like seriously. Not a date, but a very definite answer of crossplay on steam, crossplay on windows 10, of no crossplay at all. That really needs to be answered and I am sure you agree with that. if crossplay with steam happens then a wipe needs to happen. If it is windows 10 like ark then no biggie as well as no crossplay. I already know you guys are fully aware of potential impacts but this does tend to be a heated issue, not just for me but for the steam guys as well because of the needed wipe. thanks for the heads up though. I respect that you replied the way you did.

    Atlas and steam charts

    It seems as though the NA pvp And pve are dwindling. I am wondering why Americans are starting to drift off. There is consistently more people on EU clusters even during the US peak time.
  25. Yeah that was pretty disappointing to say the least. I was really surprised nobody was mentioning the forum crash. The sad part is they didn’t even say anything about it. I was looking on twitter and no announcement whatsoever. when arks forums were down they immediately announced it on twitter and gave updates on when it would be back up. This was another big fail for them. The lack of communication is just sad. i wonder how long that Q&A is going to be up before they actually answer some questions.
