Are characters tied to servers? That's dumb. They should be free roaming like in Day Z. I guess it has to do with the shelters and stuff.

I'm on 298.

NA, that is. Don't go on the EU ones, you'll get an awful ping.

Yeah. How crowded is 298 might shoot on over tonight.
It doesn't take too long to level up really Connor. It's even faster as a tribe doing stuff together or in vicinity as u get shared exp

There were 10 people on it last night when I was playing. Didn't see anyone, so was able to build a nice little hut on the beach right beside all the early resources. Only thing proving a little tough to find is hide, but now that I've built the bed I feel a little braver to venture out.

If u look upset approx spawn locations you'll see that south 2 is below where the above co ords are.

The first thing you'll wanna do before you even try and find anyone is to pick up some stones and go punch a few trees. Then you can make the stone pick, which is your basic survival tool. It'll allow you to get flint, as well as thatch and wood without hurting yourself. This is essential for making torches and campfires. It's really useful to at least have a torch before it gets dark because you won't be able to see a f***ing thing. :lol:

I think you need to level up a bit to get the campfire but it doesn't take long.

Hmmm I will have a look at it. But if its like Destiny where you have to spend months getting anything good.. I will likely pass


I would liken it to more like Minecraft with time vs gain or fallout4 or something...
Apparently can take 5 hours to tame some of the biggest / best Dino's..
But... Dinosaurs.

You don't really need bandwidth for multiplayer, what you really need is ping. And that is always going to be limited by distance because you can't break the laws of physics. (It's tempting to moan about 200ms ping to America, but that means a signal has travelled to the USA and back in 2/10s of a second.)

How good your ISP is at routing things will affect your online gameplay more than what your bandwidth it because very little data is actually sent while playing.
