  • Community Crunch 200: Genesis Chronicles, Mysterious Mysteries, and On The Horizon

    Genesis Chronicles

    We're making the final preparations for a client and server side update that will bring Genesis Chronicles to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4! Leading up to the release of Genesis we will begin to include Genesis-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration.

    Survivors with the cosmetic HLN-A will find some explorer notes provide a glimpse of what to expect in the forthcoming Genesis expansion -- and how it all fits into the larger ARK story. 

    If you want to unlock a new set of skins for your armor, be sure to collect them all!

    So that's definitely a net, the question is how large is it (what dinos are affected by it) and how is it deployed. By hand, or a launcher?

    How about glowing colors for event, like on aberration.  Only ask because you devs keep wanting to shove more and more Tek stuff on us. Tek stuff is cool but if we get all Tek junk in this update and get no new dinos (and I mean dinos not Tek created feeaks?) then I know alot of people will be dissatisfied, disinterested and disappointed in this update. I love the island, Val, and rag are my favorite maps. I only head over to the other maps to get the creatures that are actually worth getting. To be honest I would be happy if you just gave our beloved Dino's an update. Some of the original Dino's are unused forgotten creatures. I get to Tek teir kill the bosses assassins and then I start over. But by far I spend more time in the early stages of the game and any others.

    Will we be getting extra levels with the genesis chronicles like we did before as I would love to hit 140? Thank you for all your hard work over the years I know that a small but very vocal part of the  community love's to complain but the majority of us understand that things take time and really appreciate everything you do to keep us playing.

    When will the pet give HLN-A in other languages? Before the pet does not speak German, I will not buy the DLC or Season Pass.

    It won't, since Helena is an Aussie.

    So, you corporate heads of greed going to let Abstraction fix your rushed raptor up or you just gonna be scummy about the whole thing? A month away from 1 year release on Switch and you've literally said or done raptor all for Switch player base.

    Anything yet on patching mesh methods:

    • Paracer/Chair/Grapple
    • Quetz/chair/grapple
    • Mosa/chair/ grapple
    • Pretty much any chair/grapple/platform dino
    • Dolphin / chair
    • Refrigerator / climbing pick
    • Karkinos / Procoptodon (popular one)

    Or the duped meks destroying and overtaking the pvp meta? PvP on xbox literally consists of meks most of the time and it's not even PvP. It's literally rushing 50-60, 60k+ health / 472+ melee meks at towers and wiping bases. That's not PvP at all and it's been happening too long for developers to not speak up about it at all.

    Ok cool genesis chronicles, sweet.   Looks cool, but the veteran player in me that first picked up the controller for this game 3-4 months after it hit console tells me that it’s one more thing, just like the rest of the game, that’s gonna be broken for 6 months or more and going to be glitchy and 10 patches are gonna have to be made just to fix it to the point of usable.  I swear every time I read the community crunch I just start shaking my head and probably facepalm about 50x through the comments.  It would be the best community crunch EVER if WC would actually talk about fixing some core game mechanics and stability issues that really have never been addressed until someone figures out a glitch and exploits it (kinda how duping started and they should have killed that monster when it first started).  I agree with KennethLM, there’s been so much basic game stability that has been overlooked that it’s beyond aggravating, yes and there is a point that niceness goes out the window.  Not to be a d***, but when new content comes out everyone seems to forget the problems and gets all googly eyed like a teenage girl meeting Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and forget there underlying problems with the game that new content is going to make worse.  How about having to re-log into a server upwards of ten times before you can actually play?  Or say the dashboarding issues of extinction?  Or some of the meshing problems on the center?  How about the world chat box breaking so ya have to relog  and then relog again half a dozen more times before ya can actually play again?  I see QOL got swept away pretty quickly, haven’t heard anything about that.  I’m sure there’s loads of other problems that others could add too in more detail.  So yeah it isn’t any wonder why a good portion if not a majority of players cop an attitude with Wildcard.  Don’t get me wrong the new content does look pretty awesome, and i’m just as excited for it as everyone else I just believe that there are other priorities that should be at the forefront of discussions from Wildcard rather than “oh hey check this out”.  Also a more substantial discussion regarding problems and solutions and actually taking people seriously when an idea is suggested when they are asked.  As well as giving the community a little bit more to go on than just a line or 2 in the crunch about what they are trying to fix.  With all this being said, you guys are doing a fairly good job keep it up........but there’s a ton of room for improvement.  I guess my point is that niceness is ignored, and usually until ya can’t be nice anymore.  Also getting “Beatle Mania” over new content doesn’t help matters either because it just seems to push the attention away from things that aren’t right and should be addressed and fixed.  We wouldn’t brush off Rockstar adding new missions and cool looking stuff if all the sports cars in GTA5 were broken and looked like boxes, would we?
