Keeping #20 Fjordur Closed For Longer

Everyone is enjoying the starting over and playing on Fjordur seperately. Opening transfers would ruin the map and the experience for a lot of people and just lead to a bunch of max size tek bases being spawned on the server that get little to no use. I would like to keep it closed longer (not as extreme as months) but maybe a few more weeks because everyone is enjoying how it is right now

    Since you can’t even bring anything out yet, why would it make sense to add transfers in? The map would become stale after only a few days for all the players who bring in their tek/dinos/etc.

      I agree Tenny, for me at least it doesn’t feel too right to let transfers in yet. Why have the capacity to bring things *in* but not out? With some other maps, we even saw that you could bring things out first but not in. I think at least changing to this would be better, and I like the idea of this “transfers out only” happening at a later date as PC said. Maybe 2-3 weeks after so everyone can still be immersed.

    I want to open transfers in. There are already huge tek/metal bases from a lot of the bigger clans. I want to play without getting destroyed by alphas every day. I do not play in a huge clan I grind every day after work. I want some of my tex comforts that I have worked on building up I would love the Keep the Viking theme in building but wood dose not last to alpha Rex and Gigas. The ones that are going to loose interest will no matter what.

    As it being a server in a cluster it makes sense to open it up, otherwise why is it part of the cluster? I agree with Katalina I dont have time to grind out huge bases and I wont be joining with 9 other people to make it easier

    As a player, I’d like to see transfers stay shut at least until the final boss is beat by someone. As an admin, I think opening up transfers in alone will help with a lot of the griefing going on because most of it happens due to resource competition and many players crammed into a small map. Transfers in allows for resource farming on other maps and then importation into Fjordur to avoid the large crowds.

    As one of the last players regularly playing on Genesis transfer out only, when it was closed for good. I feel keeping Fjordur locked from transfers in for awhile won’t hurt to much. I am not in a big clan and yes have been killed by a few alpha’s but after playing for 12-15 hours over the weekend I feel Kit and I are in good shape. Maybe it should be when an online player count drops below a certain number during prime play times open it or maybe once WC fixes any new dino glitches with regard to any older map, then maybe open up to transfer both ways. I personally think it to soon to open.

    The map has only been out for 2 weeks. Can we at least leave it closed for maybe 4-6 weeks, or until both the transfer in and out can be done at the same time. Having it in only doesn’t make sense. Why aren’t we waiting until WC officially opens the map for transfers? I just think it’s a bit one sided to ignore so many who’d like to keep it challenging for just a bit longer. I mean we currently have over 20 votes to keep this closed a little longer, but it only took 9 votes for Gen#11 to be removed. I do agree Fjordur should not remained transfer free for a long time, but 2 weeks is really short.

    To add on, this the final ARK DLC from what WildCard has been saying for a few months now. Why would you wanna rush all your overpowered dinos and gear over instead of enjoying it fresh and having a fun time on the last DLC? This game is going to start dying fast and I think this is one of the last chances we have on the Cluster (Domination) to get a fresh experience.

    I think keeping it closed for a bit longer is a good thing, if fjordur gets voted in as the new patreon map it would be cool to have transfers closed until that’s released for instance, that way a fair amount of the supporters will flock to that map and not overwelm the current fjordur map to hard. I see that as a win-win.

  9. Cyn

    Beings that we just got enough for our replicator, I’m all for opening it up for tranfers; Other clusters have it open, official has it open. I see no point to keeping it closed.

  10. nitenerd

    I think the public Fjordur map should remain closed to transferring in with dinos and inventory to prevent the huge influx of tek and high level dinos. If they decide to do a patreon fjordur, then sure, let it open with transfers, but not the public server.

    Hey all! After discussing it and looking at the votes, along with the accusations of votes being botted, the team has decided to compromise.

    We will delay server transfers by two weeks.

    What this means is that transfers in will open on the 15th, along with pat tickets.

    If the issues we’ve noticed with the bugs on Fjordur are rectified by then, the team will discuss transfers out.

    For now though, this will be for transfers in opening on the 15th of July for server 20.

    I like the grindy feel, and that everyone is on/at the same starting point!!! Another month or two would be so nice.

  3. LULZ

    I agree, 1-3 months of no transfers would be ideal. Opening it early would make the majority of players lose interest faster.

    Open it up for everything if people don’t want to bring the stuff in or out then don’t bring stuff in her out it’s pretty simple.
