  • Community Crunch 219: Genesis Update, Enforcement Updates, and EVO Event

    Genesis Update

    GenesisIntro.jpg

    We'd like to give a big thanks to the community for all the support you've shown during the Genesis launch!  We've seen some amazing community content and enjoy hearing your experiences  in the simulation. 

    We have a busy summer coming up!  Last week we announced the addition of a new map, Crystal Isles, and a new TLC patch coming this summer.  Click here to read about the plans for Summer 2020.

    In the meantime, we have a number of tweaks we'll be deploying to Genesis in the form of bug fixes and quality of life enhancements over the coming months.  We are planning for a patch Wednesday to address some of the more immediate issues following the Genesis launch.

     


     

    Enforcement Update

    The Enforcement Team has been monitoring the overall health of the Official Network and have new updates to share with the community.  Recently there has been an influx of people reporting that dinos are being left in mission areas, including blocking the hoop in basketball missions.  Going forward, we will be removing any dinos if they are reported to be blocking mission areas or mission objectives

     


     

    EVO Event

    Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 13th of Mar at 1 PM EST until Monday the 16th of Mar at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

    • 2x Harvesting Rates
    • 2x Taming Rates
    • 2x EXP Rates

     

    Until next time!

    So there is no Crystal Island in Asia without Genesis!  Asians can buy this game on steam without being told that there are no Asian servers. How is this different from a scam?

    Game still works in single player official servers aren't something they owe you.

    It won't be to stop people from taming them, it will be to AFK farm Organic Poly and Chitin. There are a few caves they spawn in, might have some luck in the others

     

    This guy said it was because he didn't want people taming his karks :P Tried to tame one and he will walk out with the rex and eat it in the trap :(

    people still built in non buildable caves, tickets closed without replies, very disappointed.

    I really hope you guys take another look at the teleport system on genesis. It is unnecessarily risky to travel this way and we are forced to use it. 

    Also, you can for example, teleport to Ocean SE and it will spawn you in the central or South West. The teleport arrival locations need to better reflect the selected area.

    Yeah, I can't tell you the number of times I've tried to warp to the east in bog and get sent straight to the SE corner.

    Hey... instead of removing dinos from quest zones... please fix that ridiculious anti-meshing system.... now i lost a few ferox because of it. Please help your community to not loose anything because of that anti-meshing nightmare.

    Server lag has been getting progressively worse. A lot of the race missions are unplayable with this lag, because the time keeps rolling while I lag.

    I could care less about a new map 🙄

    That means you have room to care less, which means you do care somewhat. 😉

    I care that I have to input settings everytime I play the #*$&$ game and it crashes upon start, so yes I care but not about a new map.

    Dont know who else feels this way but i feel like the tribes that are blocking the mission points ie the basketball hoop just one right of the top of my head with a rex sitting right inside the hoop should no just lose that rex they should lose everything on that map base and all tames because you kill one Dino and that dose nothing to them when they are mass raising them anyways so whats it hurt them or teach them were as if they lose everything then they will be a lot less likely to do it again

    I must ask there is talk of rolling back servers to 2/25. I play on PS4 and still have no update the rollback is fine for those that can access prim+. How's that going to work for PS4 users?

    Is this added to the already x2 we get on weekends or just regular x2? @Cedric usually on weekends we get x2 anyways for those things, so I was wondering if it’s going to stack or not making it x4 

    I mean it’s x2 on weekends on the server I play on not everyone’s servers.
