MTS Beginners' cluster cycle has now ended. The servers, now closed will be prepared for a new Beginners Cycle launching on Friday 14th August!
This new Beginners will be a little different than previous, as we introduce some potential new changes and test the waters on a few things we are keen for player feedback on. The Beginners' process will remain as always with a freshly wiped cluster with the goal of building up and transferring all loot to the main cluster, this is not changing. However, below we will list what changes you can expect from our currently know cluster settings.
Change Log for Next Beginners
Tribe size increased from 4 to 6, this may go even higher (up to 8) the second week of Beginners depending on various factors and polls. To be decided.
ORP can no longer be placed inside caves with 6x damage. (ORP is still 3x Turret Dmg and Structure resistance for all bases eligible for ORP placement) *Example screenshot below.
Ice, Desert and Forest Titans are now tameable on Extinction, but cannot be transferred (Locked to Extinction only).
Structure collision has been enabled for Dino Gateways, Billboards and Spike Walls only to prevent the "gating meta" of dinos during PvP. *Example video below.
Bounty system added, this plugin will choose a player randomly and put a Bounty on them for 10 minutes, if any player kills this player during the bounty phase then they will be rewarded with ArkShop points. (killing tribe members do not count).
New Memberships will no longer be available for Beginners, strictly Whitelist only (no boss kits or instant points).
Beginners Pass price has been reduced from £14.99 to £9.99. AVAILABLE NOW!
*Structure Collision (Dino Gateways, Billboards and Spike Walls only)
*No ORP in caves
With all these changes, they will only be active on Beginners (not main or crossplay) as we assess them closely. Feedback during this Beginners phase will be greatly encouraged as we tread into new waters and look to take MTS into a new chapter. There are still new developments and projects being worked behind the scenes and any further changes will be made in due course. But these are for further down the line and announcement will be made when we are able to share more.
