    New pvp changes are trash.

    I didn't play much Ark to be honest and there is 0 need to flame me. The prior PVP was trash in this game or were you living under a rock and not playing because they killed the population faster than the incoming wipe made people not play. The changes are solid and will need some future adjustments I'm sure but the playstyle of griefing is over and the Ark like mentality of acquiring and holding land is a thing of the past

    This is a MMO not a hardcore Survival game that's Ark and it's still there for you

    Incoming patch

    With all the incoming changes what keeps you playing PVE instead of giving PVP a chance
  4. Its statements just like this that is the problem in this community, you aren't offering any valid suggestions and your only answer is to go play PVE . The carebear insult really grinds my gears because I know this is what is crippling this game. Your only answer is to recruit people from other timezones which in theory is the smart thing to do however this community suffers from the 123 syndrome. I cant count the number of individuals i've turned down simply because of the name 123 , how can you possibly know who these folks are or where they have been or what they have done . If there is one thing we have to offer anyone in a video game its our "word" based off our reputation that is attached to our "name" and its such a shame that this is the bottleneck simply over the "meta" that came to this game from Ark.
  5. The only irrelevant idea is the one swimming around in your head about the way things should be if you want me to be honest with you. I've read through this thread and seen many post about some of the mechanics of EvE Online and how they could do something similar in Atlas. Then I watch as the majority of you guys who believe this is Ark dogpile on who ever has a well founded idea found from their research of other successful MMO games. I've invested over 500 hours in this game on the official servers and not in a mega what ever you want to call it. Its a silly notion that this is a different game and the majority of you still use ark terminology to define it. I understand that the way you choose to define the "meta" is engrained into your brains from the countless hours and years most of you played Ark. I played it too for many thousands of hours and multiple years myself and I never could quite comprehend the "meta" that surrounded it other than who could exploit, mesh, ddos or inside the best and force people to quit simply because the "meta" has 0 social skills when it comes to living in an MMO. Since the launch of Atlas i've watched as racial wars broke out across the servers, reddit and followed by a few hackers spawning everything they could on the few streamers who were trying to have some fun and give this title some of the attention it deserves. Now lets take a look 2 months down the road where this title went from 50k to around 2k in any given prime and that's pretty sad to see. I often find myself wondering if the majority of this community even understands that in order to have a healthy game you need an equal portion of both pvp and pve. You cannot hope to achieve either without the other and until you understand that this game will continue to decline over the coming months no matter the content being delivered. There needs to be a system that will control just how much land each of us holds as well as a system to protect our vested interest in this game. The offline meta that cursed Ark has no place in Atlas and I am sure the developers are working hard to achieve this so we can stop the slope before its too late. I hope to see the developers install an API system to protect those of us who play this game from 3rd party software that is currently being used to track our where abouts in the game. I also hope that they will do something much like EvE Online and gives us a vendor we can pay so we can find the last known location of the douche canoe who raided us while we were away. There needs to be many checks and balances for this game because currently its like the wild west giving some an unfair advantage by using the name 123 or coding a bot to track peoples locations based off of the steam network. The meta needs to change from the cloak and dagger horseshit because its literally killing the game that all of us here have grown to love and hate.

    Implement an API for the game

    I really hope that the devs will look into giving us these asap. It would allow us so much flexibility in micromanaging our companies. Not to mention making what we do with our characters during its lifetime. I would also like to suggest giving us the option of what we can share with who ever is asking for it much like eve.

    PvPers wont let new players on current Isands

    Hopefully in time the community will understand there is a need for a change to themselves more than the devs need to be making swinging changes to try and resolve this issue. I've played thousands of hours in Ark and I always felt as though there was so much missing from the way "most" tribes were structured. I am hopeful that when the Devs overhaul the Company structure they will look to other MMO's and give us something more fitting than 5 roles to try and micro manage 500 folks with. I would love to see a more robust chat system ingame to enable us to be more social with newer players and give them a hand up instead of the finger so many of them get on the daily. Keep your head up dude and reach out through the forums and reddit to try and build some relationships.

    I love you so much right now , no homo , I am glad to see this Community taken a proactive approach and explain things such as this to newer players.

    Too many Mega Tribes ?

    Why is the long term planning up to the devs when this is a sandbox MMO. Your future is yours to make so get out there an build some relationships because you won't survive alone for long.
  11. Yeah and it seems like its always well they do so why don't we .................. because WC isn't doing anything. I'm seeing them ( WC ) do things myself and they have come a long way in my book. Now if we can just help them by taking a stand together so we can actually play this game without all the exploiting to get ahead because the "other" guy did.
  12. I've played with them in Ark as well myself in the past. You and I both know its not only just the Chinese that support cheaters is the point I'm trying to drive home. There have been many other cultures involved with many exploits and cheats through the years of WildCards games. I just wonder when the community will draw a line in the sand and take a stand against it
  13. I've really tried to stay out of this conversation on many platforms and today I am going to post just what I think. Seriously people how shallow are you to only say its one country's people who are actively cheating or abusing unintended mechanics. In my gaming history I've played with just about every country this world has to offer and all of them taught me something about their culture. None of it was abusing unintended mechanics or cheating in any way shape form or fashion. This is not the way to create a narrative to unite against a common foe in my book. I've lead many "Campaigns" in MMO video games in my past and never has it been racially driven because at the end of the day those of us who are "Adults" were taught better. This statement is bogus, racially driven and for the lot of you grow up.Find another way to build a "CAMPAIGN" against a common foe other than throwing one country under the bus. I have played with many people from China in my lifetime, learned a little mandarin in the process and created my own MOMO for their fleets when I have the time to fly with them.

    Too many Mega Tribes ?

    That was my point that it was the poster child for success. This post was about too many "Megas" and no "place" for the smaller Companies. A simple contract system to purchase boats would be an opportunity for smaller folks to make a decent buck and not just be another stone farmer. Lord knows that just capping one takes forever currently and not something I would want to do on a regular basis. No what I'm asking for is more mechanics to safe guard new players so we don't have yet another Ark on our hands where seal clubbing is a norm. Eve too made a huge change after 15 years because player retention was at an all time low. I would love to see zones where players could rebound from a wipe to come play again. Atlas has I guess we could refer to it as a mission system. The power stones, which need a change , treasure maps, whale hunting and exploration are all time sinks to gain either XP and or Gold. I don't know where you are going with this because Ark isn't an MMO in any way and Atlas is far different.
