- Do you prefer the server to be in PvE mode?
Basically we set the server to PvP to boost activity, that clearly didn't help. Most players preferred PvE even though they supported trying something new. Do we want to go back to PvE? Maybe at least then new PvE players would be more likely to join.
A few players feel it may still be possible to get PvP to happen, and im willing to hear more on that idea. So far any other approach I've seen would be very hard for admins to oversee.
There are some new tools available (https://arkserverapi.com/) that can allow us to take advantage of more structured PvP (timers, tribe wars, events) BUT IMO I think the servers base setting should be PvE.
ORP2 Gotta go. We're pushing it by still havin this on the map. Were lucky we haven't run into any serious issues yet.
IF we go back to PvE settings on Aberration (rates, S+ Engrams, ect.) will be changed to match the other servers. The only reason those were Raised/Added was to compensate for the added difficultly of PvP.
Other Things to consider IF this is something you guys wanna do:
--We can revisit some of those engrams
--We can give AB some "Slight" taming/maturing boosts (3x-vs-2x) over the other servers
--We plan to implement some sort of Voluntary PvP system either way
--This is it, we wont be making this change possible on this server again.
--IF players vote YES to go PvE, we will schedule that change. We hash out details first, and get them posted, then make changes
