    Have you met our feisty and featherweight flier, Sinomacrops?  In Community Crunch 282, we released the Sinomacrops dossier for the upcoming Lost Island free DLC map.  Although our new friend may seem to mostly have its strength in traversal, Sinomacrops brings substantial utility for players of all types. A secondary inventory is available to players whilst it is shoulder-mounted and Sinomacrops packs a significant weight reduction on the items it's carrying for you!  Who's ready to say hi to their new backpack buddy!?

    In addition to Sinomacrops, Amargasaurus and Dinopithecus will make it's way to Lost Island later this year.  Although Dinopithecus won the community vote for the Lost Island Creature Submission, we're looking forward to doing it again later this year.  What creature would you like to see added to ARK?

    Quality Of Life and Balance Patch

    We plan to release a Quality of Life and Balance pass next week on PC, and a little further down the road on console. This patch will include various QoL additions along with some important balance-changes predominantly aimed at PvP. One of the key aspects we looked at in regards to balance is the prevalence of chain-stuns/crowd control in the current PvP meta - most specifically Void Wyvern, Shadowmane, Netgun and Plant Z. We've also made balance tweaks to various creatures and items that we think will make PvP more fun and interesting.This patch also includes two newly breedable creatures!

    We do plan to make some more currently un-breedable creatures breedable in the future so stay posted if your favorite isn't included in this one!

     

    Last but not least, we're kicking this weekend off with a breeding EVO event and a look at some amazing community content!

    I sense another round of nerfing things to the ground for PvE in order to balance the ever dwindling PvP...BAU although at this point, I guess it really doesn't matter much.

    But really, where is the damn PS5 upgrade? It's been a whole year since you promised it and you've said nothing after the announcement.

    maybe gryphons, basilisk and rockdrakes? i dont think theyll make reapers breedable though. they'd have to overhaul it.

     

    Yeah. Also mutated reapers? Reapers are already quite possibly the most powerful tame without drawbacks. (Giga rage and swimmer water restriction) the only possible drawback is charge weakness, but in my experience, people don't have the foresight to bring a lantern pet.

    Bruh, looked at your comment, looked at the picture, and it just hit me.

    Okay a few things after reading this thread.

     

    One.... STOP CRYING ABOUT CHARCHARADONTOSAURUS! It LOST, it's OVER! MOVE ON!

     

    Two, I honestly hope that one of the new breedables is the rock Drake (and it STAYS breedable). I could care less about the other one (though Either the Griffon or Basilisk would be cool), but please just let us breed these damn lizards already.

     

    Three, and most importantly, the Sino looks awesome. Just as I'd imagine it'd look in ARK, and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I didn't vote for it, but I'm starting to wish that I did.

    Any idea when we might see a Nintendo switch update...at all?? I have ark on multiple platforms but honestly I'd love to be able to play on big screen and then pick the thing up and go to a friend's or family's and play too. Think that would be cool!

    In fact, the bad thing is that, as they had presented it to us, it was yet another acqutic theropod. It would be cool if it was used as a tank in my opinion.

    Not just an aquatic theropod: a theropod that had no business being aquatic. The only thing aquatic about them is that their teeth resemble those of the great white shark, and the suggestion somehow turned teeth shape into Hydration buff, fast swimmer, and passive keratin production.

    My QOL SUGGESTION:
    Make immune from radiation for all Aberrant dinos.

    players where utterly robbed of the chance for imprintable griffins in Crystal Isles and rather aggressively voiced their malcontent on the matter.

    Nope. "Some" players didn't like something. Very very different from "all the players were robbed" as you seem to be implying here. I mained CI and have several thousand hours on it - still could not care less about griffins. That is due to the fact they are utterly worthless.
    I was neither "malcontented" nor even slightly aggrieved by the apparent (and until now unknown to many including myself) "CI griffin robbery".

    On the other hand, reapers are actually both functionally useful and beneficial so, as a result, are worthwhile having.

    It is.

    It's not. Their breeding style is so uniquely specific that it simply can't be done unless they suddenly allow queen birthing and allow people to throw the traditional acquisition method (I.e. Fight a queen to near death) out of the window afterwards. As to griffins being "useless" they still see a fair deal of action and are only really  held back by the fact that they're the only flying creature incapable of receiving an imprint boost from breeding. Reapers by nature of their gestation leveling AND imprint bonuses are already powerful enough as is which justifies the difficulty of acquiring one. Overhauling their breeding function to make an already incredibly powerful creature loaded with benefits more powerful while also removing the all of the effort of getting more of them if you can get a Queen is just redundant.

    Pretty sure all aberrant dinos ARE immune to radiation, I think you're mistaking "Aberrant dino" for "creatures on aberration"

    Aberrant anky is not immune.
    As for creatures on aberration strangely Basilisk is not immune. Wild one is, tamed isnt.

    Huh, odd that Ankys are left out of that. Basilisks aren't distinctly aberrant creatures though, they're just called basilisks after all rather than having the "aberrant" denotation, definitely odd that wilds seem to be just fine in the red zone though. Granted the same seems to apply to ravagers in the val caves so there's possibly a chance that they, ankys and basilisks getting rekt by rads once tame is probably an oversight on WC's part.

    The Carcarodonte .: I KNOW MY RIGHTS !!! ... Seriously I think you have reason. After all, to be an end game alpha predator it must have two characteristics that in my opinion and according to many other guys whose comments I have read: - Competing with the Giga (and therefore knowing how to collect the hits)
    -Have a super bite (to make sense of his teeth)
    - To be able to stock up on all kinds of meat.

    Welp, going by Dolly's twitter we're getting breedable drakes and, of all things, Achatina. Not sure why they'd make the snails breedable now and announce it like a big deal considering they should've been made breedable alongside the other invertebrates. Honestly unless breeding MASSIVELY increases paste production rates this is a really underwhelming decision compared to doing it for the karkinos or griffins.

    They did it as a joke. Admitted it as such. Nobody wanted or needed snails to be breedable.

    Must've missed that part,  they're a cheeky lot  for doing it that's for certain

    Also, for a new animal for the game, I wonder if a Chinese-style dragon would be fun??

    Rock Drakes are actually pretty similar to the Chinese Lung dragons in terms of design. Granted an arguement could also be made that they're similar to feathered serpents as well.
