    . As far as your complaints about PvE viability do keep in mind that practically every PvP Dino can find a use in PvE

    voidwyrm, to a pve player its a downgraded wyvern, need a metal farm, tek paras or rexes work fine, need a fast mount on gen2, the astrodelphis is a faster flyer. aireal combat, astrodelphis again. tek breath does minimal damage and as far as a console player can see, does NOT stun lock. picking stuff up to drop in a trap, a quetz is more versatile and precise. meat run, use a rex or giga, or an r plant. thatch, mammoth or stego. the only use i can see and this is VERY specific, is to knock somthing off a cliff into a trap, and that would require alot of math or a quetz, you decide which is easier. actually the quetz will do this a million times better. and if the job u need a wyvern for needs a wyvern, its probably easier to get a crystal wyvern or raid the nests. there you have it, somthing useless to pve, but valuable in pvp

    4x taming
    2X XP
    Limits on how many DINOS can be unpodded at one time. PLEASE
    Garage for to park skiff and stryders in (effect same as podding) less lag on server and not decay in 8 days. not that I ever miss a day. but soooooo many ppl seem to lose their skiffs and dunno where they left them. 
    4x bby to adult pls
    yes crsipr would be great lol
    limits on pillaring. as in not more than XXX beyond your base. Or better yet, weekly server wipe on pillars n ladders AND penalties for those who replace their removed pillars with extra foundations.

    seriously WC crack down. Hard. Please. 

    I know I know thats beyond Evo.

    can someone make a pterodaustro dossier. i dont have the resources to do so.

    species: pterodustro findritia

    time: cretatous

    diet: piscivorous

    temperment: unstable

    wild: pterodaustro findritia is small pterosaur ablut the side of a pelagornis, and found in the same places, pterodaustro is a very unique creature among the ARKs it is the only pterosaur to be able to fully swim and fly. these stuborn creatures also have very strange agression patterns. from the alone creature will fly off at adangers notice, or the entire flock attacking on sight.

    ive seen these creatures along the shore but recently found a new place, a nesting ground. far more than ive seen in one place, definatly enough to attack agressivly. 

    domesticated: these creatures are an all terrain mount. ive seen pterodaustro climbing, gliding, flying and swimming. their teeth are nasty enough to nip and injour almost all creatures making them limp. and giving pterodaustro a quick healing meal while making flying a slower and more painful experience for other flyers. pterodaustro also seems to love fish almost like it heals them. ive seen batled up specimens almost restored by a few fish. however, these small pterosaurs cant fly with the full weight of a human, ive witnessed gliding but not full flight.

    who ever makes it will get their recognition once we can submit ideas. if my essay (it feels like one) is too long feel freeto shorten it but still keep the main concept.

    nvm, decided i will draw what i need to then get photoshop and try, still, go ahead and make one as a weekend project or if already started.if we dont get an evo event tomorrow.

    okay what youre saying sort of makes sense but please tell me 1 JUST 1 "pve dino"  that cant find a use in pvp? if the dino works in pve it will work extra better in pvp cause now  it can use all it features. 

    Archaeopteryx.

    In my experience people tame voidwyrms in PvE primarily for the prestige much like some people do with other hard/expensive tames or in the case of unofficial privately owned clusters the server owner for whatever reason chooses not to include the three wyvern native maps. They're more status pieces that look cool but can still fight/gather meat if you're low on options.

    No breeding x2. That's good. Id like breeding 2 x to occur a few weeks after transfers open on gen 2. You know after the transfer dcs and lags and crashes die down. That's when I'll be breeding again

    This would be almost impossibly tedious to actually implement.

    prestige isnt a use, its an addition. also "butstill fight /gather meat if YOU'RE LOW ON OPTIONS" (facepalm) yea this is a tame we use if were low on options. look at how expensive and hard they are to tame. this is not a creature you use purly to show off. andas i said, prestige is not a use, that doesnt make ituseful, its an addition, a skin or costume, a decoration.

    Never said prestige was an actual use, just listing the reasons I've personally seen people go after them. In the unofficial PvE cluster I run I actually broached the topic with players and this was more or less the reason they gave: They're hard, expensive tames that look cool, ergo they're tamed for the wow factor. The fact that they can do MOST of what a standard wyvern can is a nice bonus that can make them useful albeit ultimately outclassed by others of their ilk.

    Thank you for submitting your bugs 

    Please don't do that.

    We have enough game bugs already, no need for your bugs on top of that.

    Personally I think that wild card needs to focus on primal survival, and I know someone on pc is going to say you can do it already, but I am a ps4 player and before ark2 comes out, console players need to be able to play as a dino. Especially if there are AI humans you can terrorize and if they move through the stages like players do and don't even get me started on if they can tame you, just imagin if you fought the dragon as a dino.

    Dodos can at least act as a rudimentary alarm system as well as an egg farm.

    How do you report issues for single player? I have an issue that the game forcefully closes itself randomly between thirty minutes to an hour of playing. I have lost so much progress way to many times to just ignore it and I don’t know if this is an issue on my end or if other people are experiencing it as well. I am on xbox so I do not know if there is a specific way to fix this or not.

    Admincheat saveworld           thank me later

    just want to say something  the new maps wild card and loaded crysis talk about weill only be in mods thats where they started and will probably stay. they wont be added to consoles for consoles players to play so if ya only play on pc an pc server you can probably get the mods for new stuff,new maps, new structures etc.

    People want the voideggs to tame basalisks on gen 2 pve

    Kinda crazy how they continue to add basalisks to maps that have no options to tame them on ain't it? Unless you have the ability to hop servers to one with one of the two eggs they'll take you're basically S.O.L.. Having untamable creatures is annoyance enough, a tamable creature with no means of acquisition is just asinine.
