Please see attached minutes from Q&A session on the 15th November. The Q&A channel is now open for new questions for our next meeting.
Q: Can we have a channel for Genesis teasers/discussion? Make it nsfw so no one enters accidentally
A: Calaban has made a channel
Q: In your event manager application you stated "18 years or older" as a requirement. Could you elaborate on why? Many adults are incompetent despise being adult, and there are minor who can take responsibility and are reliable.
A: these have always been the criteria we have used and at the moment we want to continue doing it this way.
Q: What is the total number of unique players that gd had since the beginning?
A: over 50,000
Q: What is the most exciting event that you can recall having for the ark pve/pvp clusters, what does it entail, and will it happen again?
A: 12,000 level giga spawn event, that was cool!
Q: Will you, or what will you do against the immense amount of trolling/spamming some players participated in (including me), once the servers are back to normal? Will there be any consequences? And why was no action taken when it started?
A: We keep an eye on the servers and Discord and if we see someone acting inappropriately, we will remove them from the servers & Discord
Q Why isn't there a Q&A today?
A: Last week was cancelled due to availability of Koga and Chris
Q: Please can u remove s+ turrets from pvp, they are totally unbalanced
A: pvp concept related question and this will be released this week
Q: Are we having compensation [like increased times] for the long downtime of breeding etc
A: We will be doing something but with PVP changes we haven’t had time to discuss
Q: Can you give us the pvp details, I’m dying to know them lol
A: It will be released next week
Q:Why ATV is disabled?
A: It’s very buggy and useless
Q: Is it possible to make trophies like Sarco skins and sails transferrable? If yes will you consider it?
A: It is possible using Auction House, and we could look at changing settings in the future
Q: If i ever win top voters can i ask for basilisk fang instead of bp?
A: No it will only ever be Blueprints to keep it fair
Calaban left 19:39 uk time
Q: Can we have public transmitters in aberration
A: It’s up the community, we won’t do it as a organisation, but people must remember placing transmitters counts as your outpost.
Q: Any updates on breeding? When can we have an event? What is the expected compensation promised by you guys for the issues with the same? Can we have a vote on custom loot drops for specific maps? Thanks.
A: Custom loot drops, we have answered this before, community asked for it to be removed and bringing it back will be a lot of work and at the moment we have so much going on we just don’t have the time
Q: Also, what are the ranks on forum like dodo hunter etc, how do we get higher ranks?
A: Activity points for certain actions, participating in polls etc, making posts
Q: PVP can we get s+ tek structures disabled so you have to get the engrams in order to access transmitter or replicator? and is it correct that reward vault is disabled for 4 weeks after the wipe?
A: The final concept has not been released yet, 4 weeks is correct
Q: Furthermore, can the seed spawn time/number for plant Z seeds be changed? One every 60 seconds is infuriating.
A: Hard coded we can’t change that
Q: Why is ghost bot in a bad mood and won't hug?
A: Because Biehlomatik is grumpy and doesn’t like the community
Q: Any ideas to sort of control the PvE marketplace?
A: It’s very difficult to police and its down to the community to decide
Q: What is the future for breeding rates if WC doesn't fix it?
A: Were looking to keep existing values until a change comes from WC
Q: Would there be any sort of automation of ark bar conversion from the forum to in game?
A: We have looked into this, but we require a change by the TC vault, it’s not anything we can do in near future
Q: There is a mod on the workshop called "The Ghost Division - Rewards" by Blutschnabel (Gunnsen). What's it about?
A: It’s a big surprise, and it’s still in testing. Further details may be released in the future
Q: Gachas/element veins nerf them? these things broke the element or is it hardcoded to?
A: This was intentional by WC to make element and Tek easier to get. We won’t change this at the moment.
Q: @koga who is your favourite c-person?
A: Cherrie (this is banter Chris is his favourite person)
Q: Will you post all the settings, all the disabled s+ stuff etc. when you give us the pvp details? And if we see something "broken" or whatever can we talk about it before server goes live?
A: Yes, this is in process and we hope to have it sorted soon
Q; Do you have plans to add the multiple maps from the new DLC to the cluster permanently
A: Genesis will be added as a permanent map when it is released
Q: Would you consider adding special mods like Gaia, genesis, extinction core....? Like a special map for a month with one of those special mods. For the event server I mean
A: The event server can host anything the team and the community want. We have a lot of things going on now regards PVP and we are still recruiting for Event Managers. Once all this is sorted, we will start planning what we are going to do in the near future.
