    Today i had a quick converssation with the Oil Baron:



    Dani: So Mister Oil Baron, do you got any news for us about the raid?


    Oil Baron: Well, I contacted the BeachBobys, and they were shocked. They did not think you would choose such a strong target.


    Dani: Hmm, can you maybe provide some for information about them?


    Oil Baron: ohh Yes, of course! The have their main base is on Ragnarok now and the spot is far up the mountain.


    Dani: The so called “alpha pillar“?


    Oil Baron: Not at all. They choose a spot that's near the beaches of the map.


    Dani: Makes sense.


    Oil Baron: But they still need some preparation time.


    Dani: What are they preparing?


    Oil Baron: They told me most of the time is consumed by forging a new set of chain for their mighty beasts.


    Dani: About the Legend is it true?


    Oil Baron: Well I can't confirm it with my own eyes, but they told me in our last conversation to show you this picture and tell you to “Prepare for carnage“


    Dani: That doesn't look good for us!


    Oil Baron: Maybe you have bitten of more than you can chew. But we will see.


    Dani: can I have that picture to prepare our Tribes?


    Oil Baron: Of course! Once I have new information I will contact you ok?


    Dani: Sounds great! Thank you for sharing those new Information!





    So now that the great Oil Baron presented us all of his competitors we need to choose.


    If you haven't seen the introductions of the Warlords you can find them HERE.

    The Oil Baron has given us 24 hours to decide. (Voting is open till 5 pm CET 27.05)

    Then we know which of the 5 Warlords you will face on the Battlefield.


    Your Event Team

    The mighty Oil Baron just sended me over the rest of the Infos so now we know all 5 Competitors!



    BeachBobys


    The Bobys where the first Tribe to assist the Oil Baron far back in the day on Island. They had a great time together but after some years they separated. This tribe still owes the Oil Baron ~1.6 million GC, so they still work for him as tax enforcers.

    Then they started raiding everyone on every other Server, those Players collected all the spoils of war. After all this time they have become the most ambitious tribe on the Server.


    Scouting reports can't tell any flaw in neither offensive nor defensive capabilities.

    Rumor say that they even tamed the strongest creature of the Ark.




    ForestsFury


    The tribe ForestFury is the youngest of the five Oil Baron companions. After destroying many oil manufacturing station of the Baron he sent his private army to get rid of the aggressor. He was pretty impressed after they defeated the hole army without losing one person. So he hired them for combat in such situations.


    The dense Forest of the Ark are very good hiding spot. Ambushed and stealth tactics are common here. Those survivors specializes in hidden combat. Scouts could just report and increased number of spider webs in this area.


    The myths about this tribe are to wild to be true.





    ManticoreWarlords

    Those warriors are the personal bodyguard of the mighty Oil Baron. Only the name of this tribe brings fear into the hearts of others.

    The harsh environment of the scorched land is the most brutal place to live in the arks. Only Survivor who could adapt fast could survive. Scouting report found near nothing, only rocks and hills of sand …

    Their tactics vary from direct assaults up to ambush strikes.

    Survivor of an attack told the tale of a flying horror. All Survivors died shortly after the attack even if they could run away from the initial combat.



    Thats true too. wasnt thinking about that

    This Forum post is meant for Duscussion and communication so i think you can do that here.


    Tell us what items you may need, maybe the oil barons reads this post too.

    You get C4 and Rocketlauncher from the Oil Baron. He will provide all items you may need.


    And as an oldschool PvP Player i can tell you for shure just gigas and Rexes will not work, cause both can be easly countered. i think a good mixture of Dinos is the way to win.

    Genesis is one of the easiest maps to farm most mats apart from organic poly and there are still good ways to farm it, just takes a bit longer than other maps. I don't think it is about difficulty more just getting some use out of all the useless junk you get that you can't do anything with but throw away.

    i mean in the endgame yes. But if you could just non stop grind Missions for stuff in the early game it would be to easy i think

    The Oil Baron just sent me short Information over the first two Warlords.


    Tribe: Frozen Wastelanders



    Conqueror who made the Icy tundra their home. After establishing oil stations in the mountains the Oil Baron faced many obstacles and needed help to keep them running. This tribe was perfect for this job! The infinite supply of oil to keep their bases running boosted the tribes power to the maxes.


    With the help of their ferocious Beasts they form a Foe to fear. And the frozen world around them makes and attack even harder.

    All scouting report told that only frozen remain of attackers could be found with huge bite wounds in the bodies.


    Legends say that they even tamed the biggest mammal of the Ark.


                                                                          



    Tribe: DragonProphets

    A highly aggressive tribe that defends with full offensive tactics.


    Ones the Oil Baron found a way to harvest the deep sources of active Volcanos he needed a Tribe of specialized Fighters to build and survive in this fiery environment.

    Quickly they have become the most feared people in the area. Attackers face an onslaught of Tames. The tribe has a seemingly infinite amount of offensive capabilities.


    All scouting report only find scorched, broken bones…

    Legends say they have the heart of the Volcano on their side.


    So i had a little interview about the upcoming Event with the Oil Baron and now i share it with you!



    Dani: So almighty Oil Baron can you tell us what exactly you meant with your letter?


    Oil Baron: Of course, as stated in my letter i want to see more action . So i ask my Bodyguard‘s and Warlords if they would take the challenge to defend themselves against the whole cluster.


    Dani: that sounds intimidating!


    Oil Baron: they all laughed and just told me the cluster had no chance


    Dani: So which Warlord shall we face?


    Oil Baron: I will let you decide. Tomorrow i will release Information over my 5 Competitors and you can choose which one you want to fight.


    Dani: Are there any major differences in the Warlords?


    Oil Baron: In strength? No all of them are elite fighters who will use any means necessary to defend themselves. But how they fight and where they live is strongly different. Some of them are even using unholy methods.


    Dani: So do we bring our own Dino's to the fight?


    Oil Baron: Yes you need to bring your own Dino for the battle. I will provide the rest!


    Dani: Ok and what kind of spoil of war we can expect from this huge raid?


    Oil Baron: well maybe you find something in the Bases and with all the money i accumulated even within this Interview maybe i can do something even better if I'm pleased with the results.


    Dani: That's sounds interesting Oil Baron! Thanks for the Interview, and we hope to share this with our Community soon!


    Oil Baron: I Need to thank you for hosting such an Event.

    We have received this letter today:


    Dear Players,


    Being rich comes with great responsibly, but also great power! I want to see who is worthy of becoming an ally of the almighty Oil Baron! I took great joy in watching how much you all enjoyed the jumping event, but there is so much more i want to achieve!! So i challenge you all to fight one of my Warlords! Over the years i have formed some strong alliance's with many ruthless and unbreakable Tribes.
    This battle could come at great cost and will not be easy, and I want you all to have the best opportunity to defeat these "Unbeatable" warlords so i have paid Ghost Division a huge sum of Ghost Coins to extend the breeding event! This will allow you to prepare your best army of dinos to fight!


    The War is coming, will you stand strong with your allies, or be crushed in battle. This decision is yours!


    I will provide more information soon!!!!


    Sincerely
    Your Oil Baron



    For discussions and questions pls post them here


    Your Event Team

    The Problem is that you can ONLY set Tek turrets with a Blacklist or whitelist what and what not to shoot. All other turrets can only be set to complete categories like "only wild" or "only tamed" / "only survivors" and so on. You can't tell your heavy auto turret to only target Gigas for example. It either shoots any wild dino or no wild dino. So this is more of a turret problem IMO.


    If a base is really build so close to a creature spawn that it kills everything that spawns there like your Quetz example then I would take a screenshot and make a ticket for it. Such extreme cases are ultra rare and will be dealt with by the admins on a case by case basis. Of that I am sure. But each "normal" base that does not completely kill a spawn of rare creatures should not get forced to remove their turrets or to build only TEK turrets.

    Thats not true, i have Heavys on all my Maps and i can clearly select what they should shot e.g. on SE Wyvern/Alpha Wyverns. same on Center for Argies and Direbear. I think you can do it with Tek heavy and normal SS turrets. The plant does not work ofc
