We've seen some extreme pvp, where skilled players had some brutal feuds, massive base raids and constant fighting; and we've also been on servers that were overrun by Chinese griefers. After they ruined the server, they would login once every two to three days and wipe everything out right down to the ground. They weren't even playing - they just wanted to make sure no one was having any fun.

Everyone can tell the difference, and the latter will not be tolerated.

We don't have a 24/7 presence, but one or more of us are on every single day, and the forums are probably looked at over a dozen times or more. We can react pretty quickly if we're in the loop.

I wish more of the players would take a minute and join us here!
Mantis,
I probably should ask this in a PM, but the Thread is fascinating and perhaps there are other "non-players" readers.
Why would people spend so much time apparently ruining a game? Is there anything except intrinsic rewards involved? Are we dealing with a group of gang taggers here who simply cause trouble because they can?

Every MMO has such players. They play for the sole reason of ruining other players experiences. Not sure if you guys played WoW back during the plague exploit, or the hours people spent dragging world bosses to major cities. It would literally ruin thousands of people's game time for days on end, with no escape. ARK isn't the first and surely won't be the last to feel the griefing of players.

If people can group up with a dozen or so others and spend a couple hours here and there to make people stop playing, they will. It's sad, but it happens all the time.

If the Chinese just wanted to be the "Alpha" tribe, that's one thing, but destroying everything in sight consistently every night is another.

I'm more pro-economy, trade based personally, and I like to play around with that kind of logic, but these sorts of players just want to watch everything around them crash and burn instead.
