I wouldn't necessarily say a discord channel, but a way to know what shiny dino spawned today. If you're not online when it happens you can't find out atm.
My most fun moment:
Me and my tribemate tamed a gigantopithecus and used it to play "shoot the duck". One of us used it to launch ourselves off a cliff, the other tried to shoot his airborne tribemate with a longneck. Was super fun, I highly recommend it.
I tamed a ferox when gen just came out. It was a Russian roulette of bugs. I thought "hmm, let's upload it to the marketplace, maybe that'll fix it". It didn't, the server crashed instead and the ferox duplicated. Was an interesting ticket to try and explain, but Gunnsen was very helpful.
Most annoying ARKed moment:
So many to choose from it's insane, but I'll go with this one. We went to the blue cave on abe with capped tek armor. It broke on our way out, but we had grappling hooks and climbing picks so we thought we'd be fine. Grappling hooks didn't work, so we resorted to the picks. Halfway up and out of the cave, the game decided "yeah you're clearly trying to mesh, no other reason to use the climbing pick". Insta-killed both me and my tribemate and deleted our inventories. Luckily the server crashed and needed a rollback, unluckily (is that even a word?) the last save was AFTER our tek armors broke. Attempted another climb via a different route, game still killed us and deleted our inventories. We were pissed for a few days.
This could be cool, especially if they only do dinos that no one usually tames.
Does the screenshot contest count for this? It's super cool, I want one lol.
Dang I missed this one, I misred the 24 as a 29. It's not active anymore, is it?
if it's on an event server, then it would probably be better to have Admins + few randomly selected players defending the base. Making the raid harder and enjoyable on both sides.
Maybe recruit some players from the PVP side? Or players that play on both? I for one suck at PVP, I'll admit it, and I'd hate it for them to randomly pick PVE players and end up with people like me xD
Cluster Crash. Put the PVP players on the defense, the PVE players on the offense, and whichever cluster wins gets a cluster-wide prize. Events or something, idk.
Here's some ideas on how this could work loot-wise. Have a huge base, turrets, dinos, etc, plus the admins defending it. Inside, there's only rooms with vaults and stuff, and you have to get in, break them, and run out with the loot inside them. The deeper inside the base you get, the better the loot.
Would it be hectic? Chaotic? Would people profit by letting others fight and enter for the loot themselves? For sure. Would it be fun? In my opinion, yes. Just host this on the event server, and make it a free for all, like actual PVP is.
All of that being said, I know that this would be hard to pull off with the admin team having their hands full with maintanance and stuff. This is just my suggestion, if it doesn't happen I'm still VERY greatful for this amazing cluster.
+1 I'd definitely join. Sounds like a ton of fun.
