Hi everyone, this is my first post on the forum.

After playing the island PvE for a week-ish now my clan mates and I have noticed the dinos are very low levels. High level dinos are incredibly rare. Since it is PvE I had wondered why it is so easy as there is no player challenge. I wondered what everyone else thinks

As a PvE server I feel that the creatures should be a real threat, the fact that they are so commonly level 5-50 is a little underwhelming. I feel that there should be a significant increase to the difficulty level. After playing in the server for a short week I haven't seen a single dino over level 140. I am hoping to build up, tame and breed to eventually fight each of the bosses and hopefully Ascend at alpha level. The rise in difficulty would be much appreciated so that finding high level key dinos for these tasks would be much easier. I plan on staying in the server for a while and donating to support and keep the servers running s well as being optimistic that A Aberration and 3rd Dlc map will be added to the server cluster.

Thank you for the feedback. We can look into this issue. The community may also vote on what they would like to see. We keep our servers running with Official level dinos because increasing dino levels requires increasing player levels along with many other changes to player stats that would need to be tweaked to keep everything equal and balanced. 

We understand that seeing low level dinos can be frustrating but the only way you will see higher level dinos is to kill all of the lower level ones, this will cause a fresh spawn of them to come in giving you another shot at higher levels. This is essential in PvP and PvE. If you're wanting a tame at a specific level you need to hunt for that dino. Not everything will spawn exactly as you want it each time. Hunt down and kill everything that you don't want then when that fresh spawn comes in look for that one you want to tame or fight.

Yea it would be nice to have higher level dinos, but like someone said on the server last night we don't want our dinos to become useless by having loads of level 150's

Been on the Rag PvE server since it went live. Personally, I've come across plenty of high level dinos (lv120+) fairly frequently. These are ranging from dilos and the turtles to raptors and rexes. I've tamed a 145 rex, 135&140 hyaenodons (these were a PIA), and two lvl 140 pteranodons. I think the stego my tribemate tamed was tamed at 135. There's also a lv135 bronto sitting in northwest side of viking bay as of last night. As iWv suggested, I do kill everything around our compound regularly with the rex and our hyaenodon pack so spawns come in regularly.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to tame all these high level dinos (I work full time and school part time) and I also have disconnection issues (hoping this will be fixed in an internet speed upgrade in the future). The high level dinos are out there though. And when I get a few hours to play, I do enjoy the hunt.

Im in the same boat as you, I don't get much time at all during the week to play ark. Whether im at college, work or working on my fitness as im currently a recruit in the reserves. From what Ive heard, Ragnarok has a nice level average. The island on the other hand seems to have that many level 5s its kinda mad. Last weekend I spent several hours looking for high level rexs, sloths, argents, thylacos with no luck. I found 15-20 thylacos with the highest level being 65. If you ask me that definetly shows that the difficulty is set to low.

That may be the case but the difficulty is set just as official has it. 150 is max. The Island is just a more difficult map to find high level tames.

I thought that they were too low in the beginning too, but after a couple weeks I started to notice a lot more higher level ones. I've always suspected it's as T6ix iWv said, that the more you kill the higher the levels will get.

...EXACTLY this!! Lol Happened to me several times lol I'm not taming too much anymore now, planning a big move soon so gonna wait until after that. But I suspect by the time we are settled in, shouldn't be any problem finding high level dinos.
Hopefully not just ones I have to kill lol

QuoteI love the rarity personally. I don't like high level stuff being handed to me (ie Destiny 2).  Keep it up.  I was stoked with my lvl 90 thylacoleo knowing 150 is max. The excitement of finding something high level then scrambling to get your gear together so you can attempt a tame is the thrill I long for each time I log on. That's my 2 cents on the subject. Whatever you guys end up doing I'll support. Thanks for hosting the severs.

...

Appreciate the feedback and support. 

We will come to a final decision on this at the end of the month. Please if you have not voted on this matter do so now.
As always, happy surviving!

Having played many maps on many servers in the past, this is just how Ark has always been. Island has a more varied range of levels whereas the Centre and now Rag tend to have more high levels. Luckily with the cluster it's easy to pop over to Rag, find a high level and bring it back to the Island.
