Opinions on this game? I've played for about an hour and so far I don't really get it, plus it's winter so you die very easily especially if it's your first time playing.
Should I refund it or keep playing? I want a good survival game with a healthy community not an empty open world that will end up in battle royales a la H1Z1
I'd stay away from ARK for the time being

It was pretty fun for awhile.
Sucked losing everything repeatedly desu.
Maybe it would be better with a bigger map so you really had to scope some shit out to find people's bases and you could have better defense etc? I mean once someone knows its there, it's as good as gone. I guess the only thing I was able to do it save my shit was making 2 secret rooms in my base that held muh shit. Kind of a pain though because I had to destroy/build walls everytime I wanted to get at my stuff.
Also, I don't have several hours to capture a dinosaur. Not everyone is a NEET.
Well, your shit can get wrecked when you are offline m8. So, if you don't play often, you're fucked. I mean, your going to have to log in daily to rebuild your shit.
It's the most high maintenance game I've played now that I think about it.
Unless you wanted to play on a PVE server, but that is kind of a joke...
