[Discord][F4A]The Search Continues~

Hello! I’m looking for some skilled, experienced 1x1 partners for Discord roleplays as I have none at the moment :(. Please read to the end as there is a password I won't answer messages without.
•General/Writing Style•
I usually prefer sticking at around 4 paragraphs and up, but quality over quantity for the most part. If you usually write 3 paragraphs or less, it'll be hard for me to stay interested, however. I would prefer you write in 3rd person, past tense. Please have decent grammar and spelling, varied vocabulary and sentence structure, as well as decent syntax. Please provide me something of substance to respond to in your responses. Please also be somewhat experienced.
•Age•
18+ only, but 21+ preferred (I'm 23)
•Timezone•
EST. I don’t mind what timezone you’re in- waking up to new responses is exciting :)
•Platforms•
Discord is strongly preferred for the actual role-play. I can be convinced to use kik, Reddit, or Tumblr, however.
•Response Frequency•
I'd prefer if you could respond at least a few times a week. I'm a pretty busy student can't always commit to much more than that, so I won't ask that of you. Please try to communicate when you will be gone or significantly less active for several weeks or more. I will try to do the same.
Please don’t contact me if you will be gone for a week plus very early into the role-play. I tend to lose interest very fast if there’s long breaks at the very beginning. Get me invested and I can wait quite a long time, though.
I'm a bit less lenient with this when we're still doing introductions, so if we've barely said hello but a few days pass and I hear nothing, I'll assume you're no longer interested or never were in the first place and close our discussion. You are free to assume the same of me.
•Genre•
I'm a sucker for modern, romantic slice-of-life with a healthy dose of character-driven drama and angst. I also sometimes like to weave other genres in there too such as Supernatural, Mystery, Action, and Adventure. I'm really open to most things if the plot interests me.
•Gender and Romantic Preference•
I strongly prefer playing a female main outside of MxM. Beyond that, I am open to MxF, FxF, and MxM. Currently, I'm mostly in the mood for an MxF or possibly F//. My apologies, but please note I do not play male in MxF and I am very hesitant to double up.
I do not engage in dichotomy personality dynamics and like pairings to be close to even as possible in contributions to the relationship. If a scene gets intimate, I'd prefer we fade to black.
•Plots/Creativity•
While I have plots listed, you're more than welcome to share plots of your own. I'd prefer it if you are open to brainstorming plot points and bouncing ideas off each other too. Let's keep this interesting for both of us so it stays alive.
•OCs•
I would prefer not to roleplay with OCs that are excessively shy, Mary-Sues, or OP. Additionally, please ensure your own OC does not monopolize the plot with their own issues and background. Let's share the spotlight.
I tend to play multiple side-characters and would prefer if you did too.
Please do not control my main OC or any named side characters I introduce. It can really mess with my plans with them if you suddenly auto-kill out of nowhere or something... If necessary, I may permit you to control a side character of mine, but please run it by me first. Communication is key.
•Fandoms•
I am willing to roleplay within the universe of several fandoms, but please note I do not roleplay as canon characters and would prefer not to roleplay with canon characters either. Please recall that I am more than happy to do original plots too if you aren't into any of these.
-Corpse Party**
-Black Mirror
-Death Note
-Avatar The Last Airbender*
-Downton Abbey
-Call The Midwife*
-Dragon Quest(IV-IX)***
-Miraculous Ladybug****(I'd love to delve into the more subtle, darker elements like the consequences of a broken miraculous and time travel)
-Fruits Basket**

•Original Plots•
(Muse I would like to play is bolded. If neither are bolded, I can do either. All of these are open to brainstorming and tweaking!)

  1. Muse A was born into a society where ‘falling in love’ is not a thing. Sure, it’s written in about fairy tales and even history texts, but most Readers laugh it off as a silly, archaic concept. All couples are formed by reading Cerebral wavelengths, stats that are unique to every individual. Every person has a single match and are paired with that person permanently when they come of age. No trades, no take-backs. Muse B, though born into the regular world, doesn’t believe in love either. Perhaps it was the plight of their parents, or that one nasty breakup. Perhaps it was the sight of all the couples around who’d be lovey-dovey one week, but strangers the next. Whatever it is, they don’t buy it. That suits Muse A just fine- their Cerebral wavelengths not only don’t match, they bang together in a cacophony. Why is it then that these two begin experiencing an undeniable pull to each other?
  2. One night, Muse A is taking their usual jog through the park when they trip right over Muse B tying their shoe. Cliche start is cliche, I know, but stay with me here. After some initial awkwardness, the two hit it off quite well. Flash forward a week or so and the pair are starting school in the same class, Muse A as one of the typical debutants, and Muse B a lucky upstart on a basketball scholarship. Muse B had high hopes for where things’ll go…only to find out Muse A has a boyfriend, who happens to be Muse B’s nemesis on the courts. Whoops. But something’s really off with the couple. As in the boy is downright awful, and it isn’t just the rivalry talking. Yet Muse A refuses to leave him…why is that?
  3. (This is an older one of mine, but I’ve recently kinda been in the mood to start it up again.) Marianoh’s Culinary Institute is the most renowned school for culinary arts in the country. Any who truly wish to be a master chef would be foolish not to attend. Unless they don’t have the means- the tuition is insanely high. Muse A is part of the lucky few of humble beginnings that has been selected to attend via scholarship. They couldn’t be more excited. Muse B, on the other hand, comes from a family of celebrity chefs. Their spot at Marianoh’s was confirmed before birth. Yet, somehow, they don’t share Muse A’s joy. Far from it, actually. What happens when the two are partnered up for the year?
  4. (A brand new one definitely open to suggestions) St. Cornelius’ Academy(or University) is an academic institution reserved only for those of royal or noble background as well as their future servants, attendants, and body guards. Students of the academy hail from kingdoms where individuals are born gifted with control over the 8 elements- light, wind, flame, flora, lightening(tech), water, earth, and darkness. Students are divided based on status into ‘Golds,’ ‘Greys,’ and ‘ The ‘Gold’ category includes all royalty and nobility aside from viscounts and barons of low birth. The ‘Gray’ category includes future ladies and men in waiting, other servants, attendants, and body guards. Students are instructed in all areas in order to best prepare them for their future roles from political science to etiquette to combat. Given the wealth of a portion of the student body, the campus is a vivacious display of luxury, featuring lavish gardens, seemingly endless grounds, state-of-the-art learning facilities, and even an expansive kitchen headed by a world renowned 31 star chef. Currently, I have three potential pairings in mind for this set-up.
-Muse A is a new lady in waiting assigned to a spoilt, catty Duchess of Aquaria(Water Kingdom). Catering to the every whim of the young princess-to-be is exhausting, but her goal of reaching far greater heights than her questionable background merits keeps her going. What faster way to do that than catching the eye of Muse B, the princess’ bethrothed and crown Prince of Aquaria using abilities bequeathed to her by her merpeople ancestry? The lines between acting and reality are prone to blurring, however and actual feelings soon begin to muddle her plans. Muse B isn’t as unaware as he first seems either..
-Muse A is the somewhat naive prince of Angion(Flora), unsure of his future. He’s distant from his fiancée, Muse B a cold, proud Marchioness of the same kingdom, and his closest confident is one of his newest body guards, Muse C. Little does he know, that Muse C has quite the secret- she’s truly a girl whose taken on her brothers identity to serve. What will happen when all comes into the open?
5. Muse A has always been at the top of their class since early elementary and thrived on it. They come from a family of high achievers where failure is neither seen nor accepted. Proud and arrogant over their achievements, their grades make them, them. All that changed when Muse B showed up, smashing the entrance exams with marks unheard of. Of course Muse A wouldn’t take that lying down, thus, the classic rivalry begins. What happens when the two find they have more in common than they thought? Life on Muse B’s side is not all it seems as well.

S&P Futures Slide, 10Y Yield Hits 3%, Oil Tumbles Under $50

After yesterday's furious Powell-inspired rally, the overnight kneejerk reaction has been muted, with US equity futures giving up some of yesterday's gains while Europe's Stoxx 600 Index faded earlier gains following a mostly upbeat Asia session.

After 10Y Treasuries surprisingly barely moved following yesterday's Powell speech, the benchmark yield finally saw a more pronounced move on Thursday morning, extending its decline after the Fed Chairman fueled speculation the central bank may pause interest rate increases next year...

... while the greenback drifted in a tight range following Wednesday’s drop, it rebounded from session lows and was roughly unchanged.

In the wake of Powell’s “dovish” comments that Fed Funds are “just below” estimates of the neutral rate (vs. “a long way” in October), hinting at a potential slowdown in the hiking cycle, the DXY gave up the 97.000 level and witnessed its steepest one-day percentage decline this month so far, to 96.622 at one stage. However, the USD has pared some losses with month-end and SOMA demand still in play, while some rival currencies also suffer further weakness. Looking ahead, FOMC Minutes are due to be published later today although with the market now pricing in just one rate hike in 2019 (from more than less than two months ago), it is unlikely that any further dovish news is possible.

At the same time, European bonds rose, and even though demand for five-year Italian debt at an auction fell to the lowest since June. Italy’s five-year bond yield dipped 4 bps to 2.36 percent and the closely-watched spread over Germany was at 294 bps. Italian debt has rallied this week as the government said it was ready to compromise with the European Union on its budget deficit target. German bonds extended gains after inflation data from the German state of Saxony and Treasury.
European shares gave up early gains of as much as 0.7%, with the Stoxx 600 Europe Index trading up just 0.2% as of 1:02pm CET, dragged lower by the real estate shares which remains the worst performer sector in the index, while tech shares trim gains of as much as 2%. Deutsche Bank dropped more than 3% after prosecutors said its headquarters were being searched in a money laundering probe.

Material names are also seeing support this morning, in-fitting with price action in the metals scope with gains seen in Antofagasta (+4.9%), Glencore (+1.8%), Rio Tinto (+1.1%); upside in mining names and a softer GBP has pushed the FTSE 100 (+0.8%) towards the top of the leaderboard.
Earlier in the session Asian stocks were broadly higher, with MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.6 percent, although the Shanghai Composite Index dropped 1 percent. Gains were tempered by investor jitters before trade talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, during the G20 summit in Argentina.
The euro erased an earlier advance after a raft of weak economic data, while emerging-market equities rose to the highest level since early October and developing-nation currencies strengthened. The dollar held steady even as the U.S. 10-year note yield fell below 3% for the first time in two months. The euro failed to sustain early gains amid mixed regional German inflation prints, while the pound led losses in G-10 as PM Theresa May said the U.K. should be ready for no deal if Dec. 11 Parliament vote rejects her Brexit plan. Fed’s hike path stays in focus with several speeches by policy makers and minutes from latest meeting due Thursday.
With Powell now out of the way, the market is looking for any signals on trade from a meeting between the U.S. and Chinese presidents that will take place at the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires this weekend.
“The next catalyst will be the G-20 meeting between Trump and Xi; we believe risk assets will tactically trade in the green following a tariff cease-fire,” said Eleanor Creagh, a strategist at Saxo Capital Markets in Sydney. “A tradable risk bounce on a paper deal at G-20 will be unlikely to reverse sentiment structurally as the underlying U.S.-China relationship is still deteriorating.”
Elsewhere, West Texas oil tumbled below $50 a barrel for the first time in more than a year as Russia signaled little urgency to commit to supply cuts and traders fretted that OPEC won’t act decisively to clear a resurgent surplus in the global crude market while U.S. crude stockpiles continue to grow.
Oil futures tumbled as much as 1.8% in New York to $49.41 a barrel, the lowest since early October 2017. Brent for January settlement, which expires Friday, fell as much as 2.1% to $57.50 a barrel on London’s ICE Futures Europe exchange. The global benchmark traded at an $8.23 premium to WTI. The more-active February contract lost as much as 2.2 percent.

While Putin praised Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and said Moscow is ready to cooperate further, he said crude around $60 a barrel is “balanced and fair” and well above the level needed to to keep his government’s budget in surplus. “Putin is fine with $60, but this time next week we will be well below that if there is no deal,” said Warren Patterson, commodity strategist at ING. “I think we are going to have to see the Saudis actively reduce flows to the U.S.”
As noted yesterday, US crude stockpiles rose by 3.58 million barrels last week in the longest run of gains since November 2015, according to the Energy information Administration. The build was higher than the 1-million-barrel gain predicted in a Bloomberg survey, overshadowing a surprise draw in gasoline inventories.
“Oil has moved into our bear case scenario,” Norbert Ruecker, head of macro and commodity research at Julius Baer Group told Bloomberg. “Today’s price levels imply that the petro-nations will maintain their output hikes or that the world economy is about to slow down significantly.”
Gold has rebounded from two-week lows, as the dollar fell following comments from Fed Chairman Powell saying that the policy rate is just below the estimated neutral range. China’s steel prices have dropped following a two day gain largely due to ample supply and lean demand in markets, with iron ore now rising following Monday’s sell off. Additionally, spot Palladium has hit a record high of USD 1186.30/oz.
In geopolitical news, US Secretary of State Pompeo said he is very hopeful for a new meeting with North Korean officials to discuss denuclearization, while there were separate reports that US requested that North Korea change its chief negotiator. The US Senate voted 63-37 to advance a bill that would end US participation in Saudi Arabia-backed war in Yemen which paves way for additional vote next week, although White House has previously noted it would veto the bill if passed. Russia are to construct a missile early-warning radar station in Crimea in 2019, according to Interfax.
Expected data include personal income and jobless claims. Dollar Tree, TD Bank, HP Inc., VMware, and Workday are among companies reporting earnings.
Market Snapshot
Top Overnight News
Asian stocks traded mostly positive after risk appetite was ignited by Fed Chair Powell’s dovish comments which spurred hopes the Fed may begin to slow down on its hiking cycle and helped US stocks notch their biggest daily gain since March. ASX 200 (+0.6%) and Nikkei 225 (+0.4%) were underpinned from the open but with gains capped amid lingering trade uncertainty and inconclusive capex data for Australia, as well as mixed Japanese retail sales and a decline in USD/JPY. Hang Seng (-0.8%) and Shanghai Comp. (-1.3%) both initially conformed to the positive tone but then stalled amid tariff threats with Chinese President Xi’s offer of an olive branch to the US somewhat falling on deaf ears, as USTR Lighthizer said China has yet to offer meaningful proposals and suggested that the US are seeking to match China’s tariffs on autos. Finally, 10yr JGBs were marginally higher as they nursed the prior day’s losses after having found support around the 151.00 level and although today’s mixed 2yr auction results failed to spur a reaction, prices continued to gain as the strength in the regional stock markets moderated.

European equities (Eurostoxx 50 +0.3%) piggybacked on the optimism seen on Wall St and during the Asia-Pac session as perceived dovish rhetoric by Fed Chair Powell continues to guide markets. Initial reports via WiWo that European Commissioner Oettinger expected US auto tariffs before Christmas resulted in downside to European equities, especially German autos, though DAX (+0.2%) saw a rebound after these comments were denied by the European Commission. Sectors are mixed with IT names the outperformer following gains seen yesterday during US hours which has prompted upside in chip-makers such as Wirecard (+3.3%), STMicrolectronics (+2.5%) and Infineon (+2.2%). Material names are also seeing support this morning, in-fitting with price action in the metals scope with gains seen in Antofagasta (+4.9%), Glencore (+1.8%), Rio Tinto (+1.1%); upside in mining names and a softer GBP has pushed the FTSE 100 (+0.8%) towards the top of the leaderboard. To the downside, energy names lag their peers with WTI and Brent crude unable to halt recent declines. In terms of stock specifics, once again, Deutsche Bank (-3.3%) have found themselves in the centre of further controversy with their offices raided earlier this morning in a money laundering probe involving two members of staff. Elsewhere, Intu Properties’ (-35%) shares have slumped to a record low this morning after reports that a consortium led by their Deputy Chairman has abandoned their plans to buy the Co.

This pushed EUUSD to fresh session lows of 1.1350 and bringing into play options around 1.1340-50 (3.2bln) and 1.1360-65 (1.35bln). Note, the EUR did not really react to mixed German state CPIs but did respect a key fib just ahead of 1.1400 (1.1394). Looking ahead German national CPIs are due at 13.00GMT. AUD – In contrast the AUD has showed some resilience despite lower than expected capital expenditures with the antipodean staying afloat above 0.7300. JPY – The major beneficiary of the post-Powell Dollar weakness as USD/JPY fell through 114.00, 113.50 and currently rests around 113.40. In terms of technicals, the next level to the downside is at 113.17 (tenkan line), looking ahead, Tokyo CPIs are due to be released later today. TRY – The clear EM outperformer with the currency breaching 5.1500 (and temporarily rallying through a key fib at 5.1562) vs. the buck as the move was exacerbated by the drop below 5.2000 in the wake of a significan improvement in Turkish economic confidence index and falling oil prices (as Turkey is a large net importer).
In commodities, Brent (-1.3%) and WTI (-1.0%) have moved lower recently, which may have been exacerbated by reports that 7k WTI contracts were dropped at the same time. Overnight oil prices had moved higher, despite a greater than expected build shown in EIA weekly crude stocks of 3.577mln vs. Exp. 0.769mln, with prices boosted by a stronger dollar in addition markets are looking optimistically to this weeks G20 meeting to improve global demand. Gold has rebounded from two-week lows, as the dollar fell following comments from Fed Chairman Powell saying that the policy rate is just below the estimated neutral range. China’s steel prices have dropped following a two day gain largely due to ample supply and lean demand in markets, with iron ore now rising following Monday’s sell off. Additionally, spot Palladium has hit a record high of USD 1186.30/oz.

My Awful (or hilarious?) ARK Experience! Long story...

First I'd like to preface this with the fact that after almost 200 hours played, you could say I love ARK. It's an awesome game and I really enjoy it. Unfortunately I'm finding it hard to find motivation to play after the events I'm been subject to, so I thought I'd share my story. This is NOT a complaint thread, but rather a collection of tales.
I started playing on an official PvP server, and have thus far experienced FIVE other servers.
My first server was a blast, at first, I started on the beach and teamed up with some guys and we built a thatch compound (lol) in our first few hours of playing. We gathered a tribe of about 10 on the beach, fended off naked dudes with spears screaming into their mics, and tamed a Parasaur. I woke up in the morning to the base being completely leveled (no surprise there), and left the tribe to go play with some IRL friends on the same server.
We built a respectable 2-story base over the course of two days. You would not believe my excitement at having tamed our first Phiomia (lol) and Dilo. Both of which were ganked, because I didn't build a wall around them. So, to bolster our defenses I created a dinosaur pen and tamed a Carno, man, we were so excited to have that Carno, the entire process took about 4-5 hours since I was a noob and it kept running out of food, but eventually I got him solo. I took the Carno out on our first adventure to level him up, this was probably day 3 of release, and I just had him following me around. He was ganked by a single guy with a spear much to my disappointment. After a few days we had a few raptors and had begun to progress in earnest, almost every night we lost 1-2 Raptors while we slept, as well as a trike. This was due to a combination of people punching and noclipping through our walls.
Due to the losses, we decide to make an "alliance" of sorts with our neighboring tribes. We had pretty good relations but didn't want to risk losing our stuff to a random-join player, so we all added eachother on Steam and we built trading networks, since my group had the highest level players and we made saddles, weapons, and metal tools in exchange for raw resources. It was a blast, we had groups come to a designated spot on the beach to trade via supply boxes. We built a really good community on our part of the island.
Eventually, after being raided multiple times, it was decide that it'd be best to move as far away from the big raiding clan as we could. They would break down my Dino gate, kill our dinos, and leave billboards and signs that said "nger, fgot" and all of the other favorite words of the internet in my dinosaur pen. This baffled me, since I did not know these people and they never broke into the base to steal our actual resources.
We move west to live next to another tribe in a more diverse area, away from the beach. Through our many adventures there we come into contact with a huge tribe that happens to have many of the people we helped earlier in the game. We start trading with them, and they even let us borrow their Mammoth so that we can farm narcoberries. I guess karma does exist! When I first discovered their base I was reminded by the tribe I was looking at that we had helped them tame their first mounts when we ran by on raptors. I was very pleased that they remembered and they even gave us a fabricator for our troubles! :D
Unfortunately, the old raiding clan found us. I'm not sure how, since we were quite far away, but I'm assuming they flew around the island looking for bases. They raided our 2-layer wooden base to the ground. We lost a Mammoth, Carno, Sarco, 3 Sabers, 4 Raptors, and a Rex total. All of this happened when we were asleep (again). It was depressing and I was quite mad, but we decided to keep playing and instead upgrade to a metal base! At this point I was also suffering the XP bug, and had to make up a whopping TEN THOUSAND xp before I could level, which put me way behind my friends.
We started building up the metal base and over the course of a day or two we acquire a load more tamed pets. We got two mate boosted T-Rexes, a Bronto, 6-7 Raptors, 2 Sabers, 2 Argentavis', and a Megalodon over this course of time. Unfortunately our Mega was killed by a server restart, but what can you do.
We had guns, explosives, all sorts of weapons, flak armor.. We were decked out and very confident we couldn't be raided. All our carnivores were mate-boosted, and we had a nice 2-layer metal base. Eventually we form a sort of "RP Government" with some of the bigger tribes in our area, and we were having a blast. While farming narcotics one night to overcome my xp bug, my Bronto is suddenly hit by an RPG round.
"Oh shit!" I say to myself, we're getting raided. This was about 5am EST, an outrageously early time. I have a sub-terminal illness so I often find myself up at very strange periods of time, because my medication makes it hard to sleep. Although I'm sad to lose the Bronto, I'm excited for some PvP and I'm 100% confident they can't break through our 2-layer metal base that took probably 600-800 man-hours to build up. I also had full flak-armor and a shotgun, so I was pretty strapped.
I jump onto our mate-boosted Male Rex. Both our Rexes are close to 60, but this guy is an all melee-health beast. He had almost 700% melee damage and about 5400 health. One of our best tames, one shotting Brontos just about. The Rexes auto-aggro'd since they were outside, and I call my tribe-members to get online. As I'm attacking the enemy raiders I notice there are at least 10 of them, maybe more. I hit the familiar enemy scorpion multiple time, thinking that if I lose my Rex at least I'll take our their leader.
It was not to be, somehow even through an outrageous amount of registered hits, his pet remains alive and I didn't register a single kill as our noble Rex hits the dirt, dead. I lament this loss, but I throw a grenade into the pack and pull out my shotgun to avenge my fallen saurian brother! 4-5 rounds to the dudes face doesn't kill him, unfortunately, and I also die.
We continue fighting and one of my buddies gets on as I rez inside, grabbing a pike and armor. I wait inside very confident that they couldn't break through (what I thought to be) the most impregnable base on the map. Even their base, after raiding the entire server dry since release, is a shitty wooden cottage by the volcano. I was wrong, they did break through the base, but we had two level 50-60 mate-boosted sabertooth's, and they were on foot.
I hop on a sabertooth and attack them, never registering any kills. Finally we just throw down all of our explosives hoping to kamikaze them out of there. No kills, we're not sure if this was lag or what it was, but it certainly killed us. Essentially, we lost and a lot of sketchy shit happened. But I suppose it was exciting to say the least. Over 600-800 man-hours reduced to ash in a few minutes.
This tribe was well known for their antics, racism, etc. Typical internet shit. And after losing all of our stuff I was pushed out of my group and essentially unable to play on the server anymore, because I "made the group too visible", and the raider tribes leader swore to hunt me down wherever I went, etc. I take their feedback and swear to apply it in the future (staying low-key), all too aware of the fact that they blamed me for the loss (as the tribe leader / scapegoat) and they all deleted me on Steam. As a 23 y/o man, this was all of the high-school familiarity I needed to make me leave the server for all time.
As an additional bit of funny info, he also openly admits to googling me via my Steam info to look at my social media, and watching my online-status to know when / when not to attack. Essentially "scouting" my profile and attacking when our tribe logs off, intentionally exploiting the offline-mechanic. He constantly changes his Steam name as well as his tribe-name so that other people cannot retaliate, often changing it to the same name as some of our Allies, probably hoping we'll attack them instead. Idk, it was ridiculous and very immature.
He proceeds to call me ugly, curly headed jew (one of his buddies did at least), and all sorts of names. Here's a picture of me for posterity, just so you know what he also saw and to allow you the sweet moment of vindication when YOU TOO can participate in this one-time offer to demean someone for no apparent reason:
https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/10408144_10202256923939082_343436808481272358_n.jpg?oh=00223af98b610c6edbd6085e99b0d47e&oe=55E973B7
His tribe agrees to a non-aggression pact with my old tribe-mates, which I'm happy about, with the deal being that I'd never be welcome to play with them again (I'd assume, it was hinted at but I never specifically asked). Although the raider tribe never held their end of the bargain up, and killed one of their Bronto's for no good reason while they patrolled the beaches on their T-Rexes. That's 5 relatively good friends that I'll never speak to again, and I'm perturbed as to why anyone would go that far to harass someone. But this is the internet, so I guess that's that. After being called a "loser" and "fag" by my old tribemates (it really was never that serious, I'm not sure why they blamed me like that), I broke into their old base and deleted all of their shit. So you could say that I achieved some measure of revenge, although it was petty and I regret stooping to that level.
That part was by far the longest, thanks for sticking it out friends. Here we go to my second server, which is a private server. Without taking too long to explain, my solo base that a neighboring tribe helped me build was torn to the ground by Chinese people with ascendant gear and admin commands (server donations apparently get you OP gear on this server) and T-Rexes that had been speed-boosted to the point where they could cross the map in the span of 3-4 minutes. They had ascendant gear and kept me in a box for an hour and threw me food/water while they leveled my base with their pets, while they insulted me the entire time with broken English, and even got into our TS channel and somehow changed the names of our channels to "Fuck Mother White Devil Gay". It was kind of funny, but definitely turned me off from private servers and I decided to dive back into Official PvP.
I played on an Official server taken over by MJ8 for a while, I was killed 30 times in about an hour or two. By swarms of player-mounted birds that would pick me up and throw me to the ground, while their riders called me the N-Word and dirty white person (lol) through voice-comms.
Here comes server #4! I joined this server via-steam tribe recruitment, and fell in with a new group. Over the course of 2 days, we lost three bases to Japanese raiders who used all sorts of racial slurs and camped us for about an hour and a half on birds. Why? We're still not sure, they said we killed them but I had never heard of these people before, so who TF knows. They brought Spino's, Rexes, and Argentavis' down and destroyed our entire base down to the last foundation.
It's also worth mentioning that we could not retaliate because they had been duping and had a gigantic crown of behemoth gates around their base, as well as almost half an entire mountain covered in metal spikes. It was pretty sweet.
After complaining in general about being griefed by this tribe (my apologies, I'm only human), we're taken in by a much larger clan and we have many fun fights with them defending against Japanese/Chinese raiders. It was good times, while they came in with birds and refused to fight us in any fair way, we end up winning (tranq arrows ftw) and finally fed up with their BS, we team up to destroy every single base they have on the map. While this is occurring, my tribe is finally finishing it's 2 story metal base, which is super exciting.
Then comes the last minute overnight wipe. Which kind of dampened my spirits, but I thought it'd be cool to finally be on even footing. We all log in as soon as the servers are up and bum-rush our old-cave location in South 2. After capturing the cave and building some defenses, the Japanese raiders are back with pikes after only 45 minutes of the servers being up and they eventually push us out. Unfortunately due to ping issues and desync we are unable to hit them consistently.
After being pushed out we send scouts out to every cave on the map. This tribe owns EVERY SINGLE cave except for one, and even with 15 people we are unable to kill the wooden dino-gates blocking the other caves because they instantly teleport the same 5 people to every cave as soon as we attack. I'm not sure how they did this, but they kept repairing the doors so we could not break in with pikes. Somehow they had managed to amass a startling amount of resources at every base to keep their defenses repaired. Essentially, they won, so we resigned ourselves to not getting a cave and we head to the far Northwest to live in the thick jungle.
We build somewhere else, and the next day the same Japanese raiders find us even though we were in a super remote area and grief us into the dirt. They all had birds within the first 12 hours of the servers coming up post-wipe and begin griefing the entire beach up and down the island, killing everybody. A large amount of people leave the server and are replaced by more people of Asian descent, and I hear that the entire server pretty much belongs to the same raiders who bring anywhere from 30-50 people to every engagement. Good for them, they definitely beat us.
I am now on my fifth server, and hopefully this one goes better than the last. I hope you enjoyed my exciting and heartbreaking tale, and hope it teaches you something.
