This Week's Community Polls
Board Comments: Tameable titans were introduced in Chapter 2. We all know their power and we are equally aware of there weaknesses. Having Titans locked to Extinction only gives players a choice whether to build on this map and face the potential consequence of a titan raid defence and also allows players the chance to tame these beasts to perform other things such as OSDs or King Titan. We don't feel this change has been active long for us to consider reverting already. What we would be more open to is a poll to potentially delay their taming further than the current 2 days into wipe. If you feel this good be a good change, feel free to poll it.
5 ele per craft from chargers on abb so people can get tek and stuff going on earlier on abb
Board Comments: We have touched on this subject and addressed it already in a previous suggestion results post, please view our previous posts for further context behind our decision to overrule this particular suggestion.
Overruled - Added to Blacklist
Board Comments: We believe Manas to be in a good place at the moment. And similarly to the Titan suggestion above. We don't feel this change has been active long for us to consider reverting already. I think I speak for the majority of the player base when I say Mana's are not an immediate concern in MTS. We wish for them to remain in our clusters as they serve a purpose while not making them too strong as people presume them to be on official and vanilla ARK.
2 extinction servers
Board Comments: Beginners starts soon, and as touched on briefly in our announcement post. A brand new map will be added to Main cluster at the conclusion of every Beginners wipe. A second Extinction could be introduced via this method. Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the first Beginners cycle of Chapter 2 in the coming week.
make it so you can only be in 1 tribe with same members on every map
Board Comments: This recently came into effect in a previous suggestion results. We don't feel this change has been active long for us to consider reverting already. Restricting player's on potentially more raiding and PvP events are not in our interests. As long as raids and PvP encounters are always a maximum of 8v8 with tribe vs tribe. We are content our ruleset is being followed.
set season end date so people dont just "wait for next season" instead of rebuilding
Board Comments: We do not have a magic 8 ball which we can rub and predict the future, our seasons will always aim for 3+ months and we will happily continue that into further months as long as the demand is there for it. Saying this, we remain committed to long term wipes and do not expect any knee jerk reactions if the day comes population begins to drop. If you are expected a rapid wipe schedule, this is not the cluster for you.
bring back old season 6 stacks
Board Comments: No, increased stacks sizes are, in my opinion, more detrimental than increasing harvesting rates.
Add Skins and Emotes from killing alphas would be nice
Board Comments: Skins and emotes remain as a Membership exclusive for now, given our restricted P2W mindset we need to keep some things exclusive for player's who support our server financially. Skins, emotes and cosmetics currently fall into this category. Nice idea but, we will overrule it on this occasion.
change the structure obstruction plugin to tamed creatures only not wild ones
Board Comments: Not possible currently, sadly. Structure collision is enabled for these specific structures for balance reasons.
2x mts points in during the weekend rates
Board Comments: This, if it was to be done right now would need manual adjusting from server admins each weekend. As our servers are self sustaining and automated, this is currently not possible. We will however, consider this idea if it becomes a reality in the future. Thank you for the idea.
bring back voting rewards
Board Comments: As a server owner I hate vote rewards, trashy, doesn't work half the time and unstable. It's a no from me.
Up the capacity a Tek turret can hold from 5k to 7.5k considering the update where it now takes 2 shard per shot. This is still less than the original Tek turret but not as worse for maps such as Island, Center where Element is a PAIN
Board Comments: No reason to do this. Still takes considerable effort to cap TEK Turrets and even more effort to soak them, even with their nerf.
Maybe make increase upload item timer from 24 hours to 48 since people are working, have school and play sports.
Board Comments: Don't leave stuff in upload when you know you have work, school or sports.
Overruled - Added to Blacklist
add in the cool custom chibi's arena has for Membership purchase
Board Comments: Nice idea, but this would require the addition of a further mod which we are not interested in currently. If the opportunity comes in the future where we can integrate that particular mod into our MTS community mod, we may revisit this suggestion.
disable gen for first 12/24 hours of wipe, cheesing missions and buying shittons of resources and getting basilisks/basilos with 20k+ HP shouldnt exist early game like it does on gen, would also kinda stop ppl complaining about bloods too
Board Comments: Willing to official poll this idea, will maybe put everyone in the same boat when it comes to server launches. As some people do not have access to Genesis DLC.
Officially Polled - (reverted)
make it so you can transfer tool ele shards and arb
Board Comments: You can already, silly sausage.
bring back /ds since /dinostats is to long
Board Comments: Grow up
allow north ice, lava pearl and shadow. island ice and central are allowed, no reason to disallow the others
Board Comments: No
ban pillar spam in ab blue zone
Board Comments: If they went to the effort of spamming a biome or hot spot on the map. You can go to the same effort to destroy it all. This is a PvP server at the end of the day.
free 1 time kit of 1kpts + 2 cryos since voting rewards indefinitely disabled
Board Comments: Go play EliteArk if you want free stuff and P2W kits.
change from 2.5x taming to 3xtaming but leave weekend taming to 5x
Board Comments: 2.5x taming is fast enough already, 5x on weekends is me being very nice.
remove turtle cryosickness after being thrown out, it essentially makes ratholes,crouch caves unaidable
Board Comments: There is no cryosickness on Turtles, we have our own MTS cryopod exit debuff for certain creatures only, we do not use the Wildcard cryopod nerf which effects all creatures.
re nerf flamethrowers. the only people who will vote no on this are just the people who run around with them
Board Comments: Flamethrowers are already nerfed (7x dmg) from official (9x dmg). Our previous flamethrower (5x dmg) was garbage. Carry a beer jar or kill them before they kill you. Flamethrowers are fine.
make the time to get points 30min again and half the points you get cause if you farm or something you dont stay for 1 hour and get no points at all
Board Comments: Officially Polled, I'm aware players rarely spend more than 1h+ off server especially so lowering it to be more frequent will see a slight increase in obtainable points.
