So I haven't had much time recently to play the past few weeks (last log in prior to last night was Tuesday last week), but it hasn't really bothered me because I've been stuck in a funk. Between my network speed probably being too slow to handle Rag (speed test is 15mbps or lower and I disconnect every hour) and kind of being stuck not knowing what to do next, haven't had much motivation to play. Thinking about migrating over to The Island or Abberation since I've been told it's not as demanding as Rag, but idk if that'll get me out of this funk. Since I'm waiting for Rag to come back on, I wanted to ask you guys. What do you guys do when you're stuck in a funk? If you haven't experienced something like this, what do you do to keep things exciting?

I always reach that point with Ark after a certain amount of time. I can only handle it in mild doses now a days. I personally will log out for a few weeks even sometimes a month and strictly play other games or focus on in real life things that I have neglected because of Ark.

I hope you get out of the funk. I've personally been there multiple times with Ark and other games. Just take a break and return refreshed and ready to play.

I generallly explore with friends. I make it epic and do stuff like tactically parachute from a Quetzel ship base from the top of the map into the castle or some crazy cave location. But generally, when push comes to shove, I just take a break from ark and gaming all together. Take your own time for your own little adventure, ya know? But always look for new things. At the end of the day, remember, your in control. ^_^

I have the same problems on Rag, I disconnect fairly regularly hence why I only go there to visit and take specific things before heading home to the Island.
I'd recommend checking out Aberration, it has increased my interest in Ark a great deal as it's quite different to previous maps and a good challenge.

Thanks for the input everyone. Once Rag is back up, I might just log in to keep the dinos fed for a while and roam around The Island or Abberation. Finally finishing my bachelor's degree at the end of April, so hopefully I'll gain some momentum back after graduation. Who knows, maybe I'll make a complete move over to a different server

A beauty isn’t she?

Eli did most of the taming, pretty much all of them but a few. He also built the Dino pen in the middle of the compound.

Well I’m not sure why. But maybe you build too big. Cuz every time I go into Viking bay, I crash. Then I log back in, leave the area and crash again. It wasn’t like that when I spawned there when I first started the server. All in all, I just avoid that area entirely due to the crashing.

Not sure about that. One of the reasons I don't really go exploring is I get disconnected in other areas as well. It's a pain trying to get my griffin from way up in the air when I log back in, and there's no guarantee I'll be alive once I log back in. I have to be close enough to base so I can grab another flyer to retrieve the griffin or my inventory that I may lose.

Strange. Cuz the only time I ever lag out or have problems is in Viking bay. Other than that it’s pretty smooth. Best server ever ^_^

I don’t think we built to big. It fits us and is efficient. At one time that whole area was covered with buildings. Not sure now but it was pretty jammed.

I do know also that there have been other servers that have had problems with Vikings bay. I can’t rememeb for sure but I thought there was a link about WC saying there was a problem with Vikings bay, or someone else who worked on the game.

And really you don’t have to be sure why we built big. We did it for us. That’s what Ark is about. We have discussed relocating and maybe if we do that will change something, or maybe not. But there were problems before we built big.

After logging on last night, I think it's safe to say that I'm out of the funk. Ark's been running on my mind all day. I have about a month left in my Bachelor's program at school, so I will definitely have more time to play afterwards. I'm excited! =D

QuoteUsually when i get stuck I start breeding high level dodos until i have a couple hundred of them then i find a giga and have them go at it.  Its either that or i create a new character and start over from scratch.

...

Dodo army vs giga sounds very entertaining haha. Will give this a shot one of these days!
