    You read it right! <ADKGamers> Mal'ganis has cleared Uldir 8/8 Normal! We know that this is a very small achievement in terms of the WoW universe, but we are happy we did it! We have started this expansion and this tier with very little, and have grown to be a solid core group for our casual raids. This is the guilds first ever Group kill screen shot! Congratulations to everyone who was involved in the kill! We look forward to moving forward and announcing a Heroic kill not to far in the future! We are currently 5/8 Heroic and going to be pushing hard! Feisty Selfie!

    LADIES AND GENTS! INTRODUCING THE GRAND THEFT AUTO V SECTION TO ADK Despite the age of the game, it has grown some popularity within our community playerbase, therefore we have decided to make it an ADK sponsored section. This is a prime opportunity to get back into the fray if you haven't played in a while. In GTA Online, we have a crew dedicated to CEO/MC businesses and other means of money making. We are always looking for people who enjoy helping others and making money themselves whether it be in freemode or missions/heists. The majority of our sessions will be dedicated to grinding. Our section will also be holding organised events sometime in the near future such as heist nights, races, and mission playlists to name a few. If you wish to join our in-game crew or become part of the section staff, please message myself or CaGregorio and we can get you situated. Future posts are to include crew expectations, common etiquette, starter/advanced guides, and more. At the moment, please follow all =ADK= rules and bylaws until we get a rules post up. Good luck and hope to see you in the streets of Los Santos!

    New Server? New Mods?

    ARK Staff want to put up another server with maybe a difference Niche of mods. Show me some mods you would like to see on a new server. Tell us what you like about the mod and other mods that might go along with it. If there any particular rates you guys would like to see differently to compliment your mods then you can let us know about that as well. For Example, Annunaki Genesis is a really cool mod because it brings a lot of different game play to ARK. It has a bunch of new Dino's new, new mechanics and new items. This mod pairs really well with ARK Advance 10, the mods tend to compliment each other with the different game play. LINKS RELEVANT MODS

    Hello Guildies! I have compiled this basic guide to using SimulationCraft and RaidBots.com in order to optimize your DPS. These methods will give you mathematical evidence can be used to make critical decisions on gear, stat priority, gems/enchants, and talents. SimulationCraft Add-on In order to run simulations, we will need to upload data specific to your character (essentially a formatted string that defines your character). The SimulationCraft add-on will create this formatted string for you, allowing you to get a snapshot of your character's race, talent spec, talents, and gear (equipped and in bag, but not in bank). Step 1: Download and Install SimulationCraft https://www.curseforge.com/wow/addons/simulationcraft Step 2: Open WoW and Log into the character you would like to Simulate! Say Hello, Bauble! Step 3: in your chat frame, type /simc Step 4: Copy the generated string to your clipboard for use in the next section! RaidBots.com Raidbots is a website that will allow you to run simulations of your character Types of Simulations In this guide, I will provide a few of the most common ways to use this tool. Quick Sim: Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to determine your current "max" DPS in your current state (under ideal circumstances) Stat Weights: Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to determine what gems and enchants you should be using (given current stats) Talent Compare: Use this Simulation mode to compare different talent builds Gear Compare: Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to compare gear (Got a new piece of gear that you're unsure of? RUN THIS SIM) Top Gear: The most complicated simulation. Use this Simulation mode when you are looking to compare configurations of your best gear, talents, and enchants/gems Quick Sim Step 1: Paste your Character String into the provided form: Step 2: Select Sim Options: This interface allows you to specify the buffs you would like to simulate with, any consumables you might have active, and the length of the fight. I recommend that you do not bother with changing the config on the top, and only work with the Reorigination Array Stacks and Raid Buffs/Consumables for this Sim. Step 3: Run your Sim! Once the system processes your request and generates your simulation, you will be presented with your data. Stat Weights For Stat weights, follow the same process as above, and you will find the stats that you should prioritize based on your current gear and talents. In this simulation I recommend removing bloodlust from your simulated raid buffs, as this may skew the haste stat weight. Talent Compare For Talent comparison, simply create multiple talent builds in the interface using "duplicate talent set" and run your simulation. Gear Compare In gear compare, the tool allows you to compare your current gear with a constructed gear set. You can add in-game items, configure their ilvl, and specify azerite traits, if applicable. Top Gear Top Gear combines aspects of all the above sections, but is limited to gear equipped and in your inventory. You are able to simulate gear and talent changes together here, to allow you a lot of flexibility for simulation. Explore this if you would like to plan out specs and gear for different situations.

    Hello

    Hello, I am Tristan and I have been playing ADK on and off for about a year now. My favorite map is Ragnorak but ever since extinction came out it is my new favorite. I love and adore playing Ark because dinosaurs are amazing and ADK has been a really good server to play on because the mods add just enough to ark to make it not entirely difficult. I have been playing ark well before scorched earth came out and have been through its ups and downs. Ark being my second most time spent game on steam, I have put a lot of hours into it and plan to put a lot more hours in because of the new extinction DLC.

    This new server will take place on OLYMPUS!!! IP: 149.56.16.27:27033 We will launch the server TOMORROW (Sunday) Evening! See you then! This server will have a separate mod list and will not be hived at this time. Should this server take off in popularity we will look at turning this mod set into a hive and cut down the smaller servers on the current hive. After a couple months if the mod list takes off we will hold a competition to pick a name for the mod series! MODS: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1650976759 ARK Additions: The Collection Backpack Builder's Helmet Castles, Keeps, and Forts Medieval Architecture Dino Storage V2 Dino Tracker WBUI (Very much like our current MOTD ui but better) Immersive Taming Olympus Platforms Plus RP Visual Storage Rare Sightings Speed Saddles StackMeMore StructureSaver Structures Plus Tools Evolved ECO: Garden Decor Primordial Decor RP Decor Shoppe Decor Stable Structures and Decore ecoTrees As you can see this mod list is very much oriented towards building and collecting. But with all the normal rates of the hive. We are looking forward to testing a few mods we have never seen before like a different utility mod as well as a replacement for the speed soup mod. We are also testing a few building quality of life type mods (Builder Helmet and Structure Saver) to see if these mods are something we would like on this server or not.

    New Server? New Mods?

    Are we talking new maps or just new mods. I would recommend Jurassic Park Mod as it adds many new dinos and is well supported by the author . Also for a map I would recommend Volcano or Iso Crystal Isles. Both have the aberration content and are as large as Rag

    All hail the otter lord

    Hey guys, my name's SorGen and I'm here to kick ass and take names. I've been in a gaming community before, but that was one where they had a LOT of activity requirements. When things got dark for me, I decided to quit, since I was only getting punished for not being active enpugh, despite announcing my absence. Anyhow. I'm joining for Overwatch, but I'd love to play other things with people as well. The reason I'm joining for Overwatch is that I'm completely done with solo queuing competitive matches. I've gone down about 1000 SR since I started playing and I'm done with that. I want to improve my game, I want to climb the ladders, but at the moment that's just not working. Besides that I'm also looking for a nice community of people that are supportive and fun to be around. Okay what else is there to tell, I like playing Pokémon, I'm currently studying Business IT & Management at a University of Applied Sciences and I'm 21 years old. If there are any questions please let me know, I'm hoping that I'll find my place in this community!

    Overwatch Fun for November 2018

    This month we celebrated the holidays but had some pretty sweet plays earlier in the month. I haven't had that many charge-kills like that in a while, and we dominated a few times doing escort the VIP. The last clip is a great Team Kill by a guest (TheGeneral18) who stopped by our Discord on a Mayhem night. We hold an event every Friday night where we get together for some Overwatch Mayhem and have fun.

As for your forum question I use Chrome but I have heard other people have been having issues with our site when it comes to pop-up blocker and add blocking software. If they are on, some people have said it just takes a bit longer to load.

    Changes being made: Allowing turrets on platform saddles is now turned off - This was this way on the hive and I'm not entirely sure why I turned it on, but the drop difficulty is perfect without them. Base Decay: Somehow these settings got a little fudged when I was trying to do something new. Hopefully this will be the way we want it. (I am taking the map save from this shut down and making a copy just incase something terrible happens.) This is how base decay SHOULD work: Bases will decay as they normally have on the hive, 31 days for metal, 21ish for stone etc. After this time period they become demolishable like normal. After that time period passes again the bases will auto demolish, for example, a metal structure will be able to be destroyed after 31 days, 31 days after that it will demolish on its own. The point of this is too keep the servers clean, and with structures like thatch starter huts it should help a lot. ON TOP OF THIS we are enabling the destruction of pillar and foundation spam as this is against the rules. Any of these structures will auto demolish very fast.P

    Hi everyone! Thanks to those of you who came to Sunday’s mog run. This week we’ll be running on Thursday night at 7pm CST, to see if this time works better for attendance. Our run for this week will be for the meta achievement Glory of the Ulduar Raider (see link below). https://www.wowhead.com/achievement=12401/glory-of-the-ulduar-raider I think this is a cool place to start because it awards not one but TWO mounts for completing all the achieves. Rusted Proto-Drake: https://www.wowhead.com/spell=63963/rusted-proto-drake Ironbound Proto-Drake: https://www.wowhead.com/spell=63956/ironbound-proto-drake In addition to mounts and achieves we can also collect various transmog appearances including Tier 8 class sets! https://goo.gl/images/TMyFSo The last boss also has what is, in my opinion, one of the coolest looking 1h sword mogs in the game. https://goo.gl/images/H1TGxU There will be a calendar event created in game tonight, but you do not have to sign up in order to go. Any character level 80 and above will be eligible to join us for this run and there are no other requirements!

    Tribe PRIVATE Channel Rules

    We are SO excited about how the extinction server is going! We are also excited about the traffic in the discord, its so awesome to see everyone helping each other and communicating, this is the community dream! Sometimes however, people need to get away from the loud and excitable moments that happen in the open channels, and we've opened up some new channels to help with this, but they come with some rules... The point of these channels is to temporarily have a private channel to be able to be able to communicate clearly about what you are working on. So the rules are as follows: This channel is meant for smaller groups of about 2-4 people, should your activity involve more people then an OPEN chat channel should be used and anyone who joins the channel should respect that any communication in the channel should be used towards this activity (Don't be afraid to tell people that this channel is being used for X right now so if you're gonna talk about other stuff you should move to another channel.) Private channels are for temporary use only while dealing with specific communication for shorter bursts of needing silence for example, chasing a dino and too many people are talking in the current channel. If you want a quieter channel just because its too loud in general then you should choose a different OPEN chat channel. The first person to join this channel becomes the channel "Leader" by default only people associated with that persons tribe can enter without express permission. For example if Kody and Feisty are taming an owl they jump into a PRIVATE channel, Crankygrandma does not have permission to join that channel because she is not in the tribe. The only exception to this rule is staff who are on staff business or verifying channel usage, but they will do their best not to disrupt your activities. As soon as you are done the activity that required you to not be disturbed, (Your cave is complete, or your dino has been tamed) you must leave the channel in a timely manner, this doesn't mean you have to join a channel with 15 people, but you should vacate to another Open channel to open communication with other tribes once more as well as opening the channel's availability for others. THESE CHANNELS WILL NOT BE USED TO EXCLUDE PEOPLE FROM CONVERSATION OR AS GENERAL TRIBE ONLY COMMUNICATIONS - THIS IS NOT GOOD COMMUNITY PRACTICE AND SHOULD THESE CHANNELS BE ABUSED IN SUCH A WAY THEY WILL BE REMOVED.

    ADK Server Wipe Schedule

    LAST CLUSTER WIPE DATE: December 19, 2018 Mod Changes: Addition of BAAutoCollectors A New all in one stack mod StackMeMore that will no longer require us to have 4 stack mods. Extinction added to the hive Player and Dino experience has been altered - It was a giant messed up monster. We are now a 3x experience cluster NEXT CLUSTER WIPE DATE: TBD No planned changes as of yet - Next wipe will hopefully not be till 2020 ____________________________________________________ The ADK Hived Servers are Scheduled to be wiped every 12 to 18 months. When a wipe takes place the Admin staff will be refining our servers for a better player experience. We will be going over player feedback and making changes where possible. (Rates, Mods, Rules) The Admin team reserves the right to wipe the servers early when major changes to the servers are required. For example a mod is broken and no longer supported that most players use and will effect current bases or player characters (Most of the server built their entire base using Structures and keeps but the mod needed to be removed.) We will only resort to this under extreme circumstances. Wipe Protocol: Donation Purchases: Players who donated up to 6 months prior to the wipe (flexible if you miss the cut off by a few weeks with a purchase) will have their purchases credited back to them. You may receive the same purchases or use your balance towards other store purchases to get you back on your feet. For example. Feisty bought 1 small dino - $10, 3 Ascendant Flak sets - $15, and 5 Dino Paint jobs - $5. She now has $30 Dollars Credit and Buys 2 Flak sets - 10$ and 2 Small Dinos - $20. This balance must be used within a month of the wipe date, with the exception of credit that was used for TEK or Element related purchases. Should you choose not to use this credit for another donor pack, the credit for those packs can be held until requirements are met once again. (Completion of boss fights for element purchases OR caves for TEK suits) Returning Players: Approx. 48 hours prior to the wipe, the dino soul recovery file is going to be wiped, at this time players can ball a single dinosaur that they want to have returned after the wipe. Normal Boss Fight Dinosaurs will NOT be permitted. (Rexes, Yuti, Daeodons, Spinos) The purpose of this is to allow players to keep a single prized dinosaur, or a dinosaur to ease them on their new beginning, but not to allow players to easily overcome the boss fights immediately after the wipe. Wiping the servers on a schedule is very healthy for continued growth within the community as well as giving the Admin team a deadline to make changes to make our servers better for our players. I know that some players do not enjoy wipes, and we will unfortunately never be in a position where the entire player base will be ready, but we will do our best to make the transition as painless as possible for those who remain loyal to the community.

    THE TIME HAS FINALLY COME! I'm going to start this dev blog update with the news you really want: the Identity Town Square module will be published to Steam before the end of this month (October)! This means that you'll be able to create your characters, meet other players and set up your homes very soon. Here's how it'll work: before the end of the month, the Identity Town Square store page will be published. At this point, we need to wait for Steam's approval of our application which takes a couple of weeks. Once approved and released, you'll be in the square! The great news here is that when the Town Square does show up on Steam, the date shown (which will be quite near) is the absolute date that you'll be playing. We're so very close to getting the foundation of Identity out there for you to get your hands on! Next to come, the SWAT module's development will take but a fraction of the time to create as the Town Square has the foundation in place for the entire MMORPG. The back-end we need to push forward is here and from the point of the Town Square release our development focus is switched over to gameplay features. As a developer, this feels great! GET YOUR IDENTITY STEAM KEY! We're getting close! You can now connect your Steam account to your Identity game account and obtain your Identity game Steam key. This key will add Identity to your library so that when Identity is released, you can download it and start playing immediately without having to do anything else. To get your key, login on the main site at www.IdentityRPG.com. You can then go to the Account tab of your profile where you'll see an option to link your Steam account. You must have BETA ACCESS on your account to claim a key! ATTENTION! You can only attach one steam account to one game account, and it's permanent. Be sure you're logged into your game account which has the items you've purchased before attaching a Steam account! While you won't get Identity in your game library just yet, you will as soon as we're published and approved. Handing out the keys like this allows us to reduce load on our servers. We currently have 20,000 keys in the system and we'll be adding more. Once you've obtained your key from the Identity website you can enter it into your Steam client, but be sure that you're logged into the Steam account where you'd like to own Identity. Click the Games menu in Steam, and then Activate a Product on Steam. IDENTITY INSIDER: PRISON LIFE Another Identity Insider is here, giving you a detailed look into the prison mechanics of Identity. You can see more Insider updates on the about page of the Identity website. Identity prison concept art Eventually, your luck is going to run out. Crime does pay, and it pays well, but the long arm of the law will catch up with you. For minor crimes you might see a ticket or time in jail, but serious offences will land you in prison. In Identity, prison has a culture and lifestyle of its own. You might be there as punishment, but there’s a lot going on while you’re serving your sentence. Put in your time in your cellblock’s relative safety, or choose to step out and join a prison gang. Prison Gangs Prison gangs are the core of your activity behind bars. With three gangs vying for control around you, you’ll need to choose a side to stay safe on the inside. Those without gangs are even more vulnerable when they step outside the safety of their own cellblock. Each prison gang has access to a private contraband market, providing its members with unique looks, makeshift weapons and more. Don’t get caught with illegal goods, though, as some police officer players could be serving as prison guards in their down-time. Infamy You’ll need to pull your weight if you want the protection that a gang can offer. Your gang is going to ask a lot of you; prison life is incredibly dangerous. Each gang member will be offered tasks to carry out for cigarettes, the prison currency of choice, allowing access to equipment and items from the contraband markets within the walls. You may be asked to shank a rival inmate or to destroy a treasured artifact deep in hostile turf, for example. Special achievements available within prison, often related to nefarious activity, will unlock customizations such as tattoos or haircuts so that you can send a message to those around you on the outside. Sentencing You could be serving up to 45 minutes behind bars. That is, unless you take matters into your own hands! As a good and obedient inmate, you have the options of working for the prison with small jobs such as pressing plates or cleaning up trash in the yard. This work will reduce your sentence time. Time is money, though. Sometimes you just can’t wait. If you’re willing to take the risk, you can force your way out. When conditions are right and the inmates are ready, you might be able to get into a guard room and get your hands on a weapon. This can kickoff an entire player-versus-player scenario between a group of inmates and the guard forces. Fight your way out through an increasingly difficult situation and you’re home free; you’re going to have an even bigger bounty on your head, though. Prison breaks can also happen from the outside. If the prison isn’t on lockdown, outside gangs can gear up and bring the fight to the police. These conflicts are much more intense, though, and there is a lot of risk involved as the police are well equipped and the attackers can lose everything if killed or arrested. Trial by Jury If you hate the idea of getting your hands dirty with work but you’re not up for risking a longer sentence trying to escape, you might want to try your luck in front of a jury of your peers. Those with a heavy term can request a trial. Several random citizens around the land will be summoned to jury duty, being paid if they answer the call. Your fate will be in their hands, and also on the shoulders of your attorney. You might represent yourself or hire a smooth-talking legal corporation to help get you off the hook. You or your lawyer will have a short opportunity to explain how the law must have wronged you (you’re innocent, right?) and then it’s all up to the jury. If most of the jury declares you not-guilty, you’re free to go; however, if only a few don’t buy your story it’s back to your small cell. Serving Your Time When you’re not in the mood for the gritty and competitive life in gang warfare, find your way to the common areas in the prison. Common areas are safe zones with all sorts of ways to pass the time with other inmates around you. The common area gives you safe access to weightlifting, TVs which play from a variety of streaming services, billiards and more. You might be locked up, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have fun! DASMEHDI PLAYS TOWN SQUARE LIVE! Earlier this month, DasMEHDI, a popular Twitch streamer, had the chance to hop into our development build and explore the Town Square with his friends. Check out the hilarious footage below! Note that this is an early development build, which was already outdated at the time of play, and is not representive of the Town Square's current state. Still, it's a lot of fun! DasMEHDI Early TS Development Build Play NEW WEBSITE IS HERE The Identity website has had an overhaul to prepare for the Town Square release and Steam integrations. The new website brings all kinds of cool new features, mostly for the game account systems and the Identity shop! We're also going to be filling up the About page with all sorts of new information from the Insider releases. Now that the website has a true and proper shop, you can now get your hands on cool new items without having to buy entire packages. The shop now has all kinds of exclusive items, including apartment pets! You'll be able to get your hands on friendly critters for your home in-game as well, although those featured on the shop are only available there. Some of these items are only available for a limited time. Some of the new items include: Custom T-Shirt Graphic - Upload an image which can be placed on T-Shirts you create in-game! Each image can be used on 10 shirts. Vanity License Plate - Show your style with a custom license plate, visible on your in-game vehicle. Vanity Phone Number - Want a number that's easy to remember? Get a vanity phone number for yourself or your business. More Apartment Floorplans - Floor plans which haven't been available since Kickstarter, including the enormous Penthouse. Huge Clothing Packages - Clothing packages including clothes with dozens of original brands. Pets! Cats, dogs and more - Pets currently available include sphynx and tabby cats as well as pugs, maltese and the shiba inu (doge?). Another important note: when the new payment options (aside from PayPal) go live, we'll shortly after be removing all of the old packages. We will at this time never again be selling cash, so there's not much time remaining to get starter cash before Identity goes live. This is not something we plan to sell again in the future, but all who have it in their account will be able to claim that cash once on each server. Visit the New Identity Site Now! THE TWITCH CLIPS If you've been following Identity's development closely, you probably already know that developers stream their work live on the Identity Twitch channel every Tuesday and Thursday. We also use that time to answer almost every question that gets asked about Identity's development and gameplay. Now that we've been doing this a while, we've answered a lot of questions. Our awesome community manager, BeachBall, has taken the time to compile a massive list of questions linked to clips where they're answered by a developer. Get comfy and head over to the Twitch Clips Directory forum thread. If you haven't found this already, be prepared to spend a good bit of time listening to all sorts of awesome information. This is the best place to learn of Identity's fine details! -- John VanderZwet

    Welcome to The Division an open-world RPG. You are a sleeper agent that has just been activated by our government to join the second wave of agents also known as "Strategic Homeland Defense Division" going into Manhattan. Your primary mission is to assist emergency responders, now called the Joint Task Force (JTF) in restoring order. All you know is that Manhattan is under quarantine due to a smallpox pandemic known as "Green Poison" or "The Dollar Flu" & has caused widespread chaos. While working with the JTF, you will be based out of your own Base of Operations. There are 3 wings to work out of within your base: Medical, Tech & Security. You will be exploring the city to unlock these wings and while investigating the source of the virus. Each wing will help you progress throughout the game. To unlock wings, you will do missions that will give points for that wing which you can spend to gain access to new talents, perks and facilities in the Base of Operations. While you do missions, you will see on your map a red zone called the "Dark Zone" There are checkpoints along the way that go into this area. This Dark Zone is a player-versus-player, walled-off quarantine zone in the middle of Manhattan. As soon as you enter here you immediately lose the connection to the outside world and a gas mask is advised to proceed. You will find Mobs or NPC's that have a chance to drop high level gear. Once a NPC drops gear it will be color coded to indicate the quality of gear: Green being "standard", Blue being "specialized", Purple being "superior", Yellow being "high-end" and Emerald being "set item". Once you have this gear in your bag its considered "contaminated" and must be extracted from places called "Extraction Sites" Whenever the extraction is initiated, a timer runs down til the extraction chopper fly's in, then you have to run up to the rope, put your "contaminated" loot on the rope and guard it until it fly's away. But be wary, other players will try to cut your rope and take your extraction while at same time becoming a "Rogue Agent". When you become a "Rogue Agent" you are visible to all players and you start a countdown timer with a Red Skull above your head. When the timer goes out, your rogue status ends. Good Luck Agent!
