  1. So I see alot of complaints about the wipe but either the game is unpopular enough to prevent a repeating of the launchday scenario or devs are driving the already dying game back into old issues without having their servers stable enough to even handle +40 players on a grid. 16 Freeports (2400) & 58 (8700) Lawless on a server (like NA PVP f.e.) = 11100 potential spots for players per one of the 4 big official servers. That probably will be enough for the current playerbase of +-10k overall. In case it would pick up significantly when the wipe is done and at 'relaunch' these servers are only able to handle about 40 players before becoming unplayable there is room for about 2960 players on a server. Having 4 servers gives room for 11840 players. Now knowing that alot of people avoid the hardest environments to start a new character with very little chance of survival the best Freeports in terms of conditions will be clogged with alot more players. Those who are eager to restart or are new to the game might be force to the harsh biomes and having a very bad experience at first and being left behind again in terms of finding a nice spot before everyone else rushes out. Can't see how they want their servers to handle this again, if people start spamming rafts in freeports at relaunch we're in for a long night.

    PVE ships from inactive players

    I never tried but if u manage to get hold of a ladder it might still get overencumbered, if u get higher than the boat itself and are able to toss items on the deck of the ship en masse u will be able to overencumber it and make it sink, this is not something I encourage you to do but if it's really bugging you and you are very very sure those boats are from people long gone then be my guest and find out how to trash someones boat on PVE, it's not like devs are banning people or it.

    PVE ships from inactive players

    Are you new or are u assiming they properly fixed the PVE ship weight sinking bug? Cuz for all I know it's not 100% fixed and still doable to sink ships in PVE with weight.

    Find a bug to sink them, I'm pretty sure that still is possible.

    WTF...You really think thats the answer?

    Too little too late I'm afraid, dropping under 10k peak in players during the week and probably soon not even over that 10k in the weekends either. How is your 40k players on a world gonna happen when it's this low, so scattered around and such a depressing pile of code you guys have the guts to call a game. Looking forward to spamming the stream again to be ignored some more by you guys. Your ship is sinking, and scooping up water with buckets ain't gonna prevent it from sinking before it left the EA Shipyard, it will crash on release like many of us have lost ships.

    Devs. you doing something wrong

    The ones I posted as an example was when someone else in another topic said compare it to the top steam games cuz that is what Ark and Atlas were in that person's eyes so yes that's what I compared it to. And yet again u fail to see that there are games that have more players currently playing it than when they launched their game meaning their playerbase increased over time rather than just bleeding out like Atlas is doing right now. Stop arguing for the sake of arguig and use your eyes.

    Are u blind or just unable to read lines on a chart? There are plenty of games in that example that started with a much lower playerbase than there are playing nowadays.

    Yup, the only official who ever talked to me was this forum moderator in terms of insulting the devs. Plenty of topics and bug reports are not looked at and yea the support ticket is just a placeholder right now.

    And No Man's Sky also made fake promise on reveil that it was a multipayer game while it wasn't, at least it wasn't for a long time until they added it in. So yeah if u wanna compare Atlas to No Man's Sky you are making a good comparison as they both sold half truths.

    Dude, the comparison was made cuz people like u kept saying: Atlas and Ark are great they are on the top steam games list in terms of amount of players, so i took that list to compare it to. But if u wanna compare '"apples to apples" I suggest u take some survival games that also released in EA. And I have checked those out before making my previous post and believe me, if i post a comparison to that it will make Atlas and Ark look even worse than they do right now. Alot of these EA games start off with a small playerbase and increase it over time, where here we have some overhyped shit that actually runs like shit. Compare it to 7 days to die or stuff like that I dare you

    This is my couple week old comparison, for those who said it was normal to lose that many players over time take a look at these top Steam games and look at their All Time Peak and their 24 Hour Peak. These pictures are still generous to Ark and Atlas because of them being a few weeks old. Only games which is doing bad in comparison is GTAV and that's probably because their online part is also a cheatersfest that isn't taken care of by the devs but hey they also do still release new content right?

    Keep calling people who make these threads attention whores and keep telling yourself that all these numbers are "'normal" for any game. I've made a topic weeks ago about the comparison the other games and my man, Ark and Atlas are two shitshows together, those who say that it's normal to have lost so many players and considering it's just 11k players at peaks dispersed over so many servers and grids it's just a wasteland in game. Most people probably even just log in to keep up maintenance for their flags and log out shortly after. Very immersive gameplay right? Then u have these forumtrolls who say go play unofficial or something else if u don't like it... First they didn't listen to us since launch about the real isseus, the game nearly bled to dead then they say they gonna fix alot of bullshit players really wanted to have fixed, messed that up, game bleeds to death even more. Those who believe they will finish this and it will ever get out of EA status are delusional. The only official reply from anyone was from Jerryn who's a moderator here and that was cuz i called the dev team crackaddicts and he said that's a nono ... I understand now that crackaddicts have more perseverence and insight than the devs and it was wrong from me to insult crackaddicts in such a way. I uninstalled this game last night after my first official reply being a moderator telling me what I can and cannot say on here. Since my only reason to keep playing the game was to build a pyramid of shame for the devs which I completed last week on Gravelton Island L10 EU PVE server and to get my refund somehow but yeah let's face it these junkies already ran off with my money and plenty of others. 40k players on a single server ... they are gonna have hard times trying to reach 40k players combined on all servers during the period of a single week in just a few more weeks from now. Let's face it, this weekend we might peak around 12-13k players and next week we won't see peaks of over 10k during the week and that weekend will probably be the last one where this game get's over 10k players during the rest of it's EA existance, after that it's either gonna die off slowly and never will be finished or the best thing that could happen is that some capable studio buys over GrapeShit and it's assets so a team of pros can deliver us a game that was advertised to us and not whatever this thing is we were playing until now. Might be my last post since there is no more point of me to make, just wanted to give special up yours to Nutcutter, Percievel, Jerryn, Jatheis, Dollie, Jeremy Stieglitz and all u muppets who think everyone needs to "git gud" or "stop whining" we all paid too much for whatever this piece of code is supposed to be and have a right to complain just as much as anyone else, if u don't like to read complaints don't read them but don't tell people to stop whining or shut up when they experience a bad game. Towel out, without a refund, will keep dissing whatever game company pulls another trick like this in the future.

    How much longer before u shut down the official servers due to lack of interest and being a big cost if we compare it to the sales and refunds from Atlas alone? That Ark money won't last forever and this project is a pure cashgrab with the result that this game is a crabshack. Just took a look at Battlemetrics website to see how many people are on the various official servers, I could choose 3 official servers excluded NA PVE, for some reason it's not listed atm or it's somewhere in the list and I haven't found it. Either way, if u rank that list on highest players per server u will see the first page of 10 servers already drops down quickly to just 30 players per grid. Going down the list towards the back this decreases ofcourse, to hit the last 5 pages which are 50 (51 actually) grids/servers where there is not a single player online. From those 50 (51) servers from 3 out of 4 official server lists there are only 4 Freeport regions in it, 2 Central Maws(?), and 4 Lawless regions. So still 40 servers where areas are claimable that nobody is online at this very moment. 51 servers without players 52 servers with 1 player 70 servers with 2 players 65 servers with 3 players 70 servers with 4 players 61 servers with 5 players 58 servers with 6 players 43 servers with 7 players 34 servers with 8 players 40 servers with 9 players +-110 servers with 10 to 15 players 40 servers with 16 - 25 players 13 servers with 26 - 55 players 1 server with 129 players online which is currently NA PVP E9 Even when NA PVE would be included I doubt this list would become much better. Now take in mind that each server has up to 4 islands where these players are also (possibly) divided over just to give an idea how much fun it must be to play Atlas nowadays. I'm not gonna take the time to try and add all those numbers up to see how many people are actually stlil playing on official servers, was hoping there was a website that could show me this by just selecting the 4 official ones showing how many players were on each but couldn't find it yet. Sure these numbers are still to get slightly higher as there is a weekend starting for most and well if the trend continues this weekend we'll peak around 12k maybe 13 if lucky but over the last weeks the playerbase peaks in weekends drop off around 2-4k players a week so yeah, have fun while it lasts.

    Where they really messed up

    It's a copy paste but just to add up to the 80% loss in numbers to put in in perspective a bit.
