    As above , nice little addition to the game really handy well done guys and girls.

    Also....why is it that it's only steam that ever gets Ark discounted every now and then and never on ps store ??

    I know people who'd buy the game if it popped up for a little less on PlayStation

    Lost Island is a HUGE letdown. It's obviously NOT even close to being a finished product.  smh

    What’s unfinished about it…?

    Funny how WC made Lost Island tames SOOO PVE and difficult that the maps were 20/70 most of the time (gen 2 capped almost all the servers)

    Sorry my friend to tells you that almost everyone knows exactly that Lost Island map isnt all finished, because if that would the case, then why a lot of patches to solve stuff that should been done before the release? Peolpe knows that the new map would be full because its new, but also its not full because mostly of the people know exactly that its an unfinished map and doesnt wanna lost everything that was done. Multiple people have lost a lot of progress whn Gen1 was new and WildCard needed to do a Wiped out rollback from a week (irl) or so (it means that everything that you have done it was erased). So, old players have already know how would be hard to stay in the map in the very first days. Im not playing this new map because I dont feeling like ths map would be awesome.

    Tbh it’s for the better. Actually what’s PVE about monkey disabling tek? Either way, I think we’ve had enough of managqrmrs and void wyrms and other stuff that’s the newest bestest ever pvp dino and somthing that everyone can use.

    Will you make a final vote with the 10 most voted creatures like last time, for Fjordur? Will the third creature be chosen from the most interesting suggested?

    Same here. I know many friends who want to try it to see if they like it, without having to pay full price for it.

    You really overestimate that stinky monkey.
    Also the best Creature by far is the Amargasaurus

    This is so cool I like the new creatures and the cool new map it’s so unique because the desert and the forest are separated by an ocean. I also like snow area and how there are so many base locations such as the snow castle, the tower, and the red wood castle. I’m talking about the lost island if you did not know

    I think it’s disgusting that y’all do not answer support tickets in a timely matter or at all but just keep dropping maps like it’s cool. Pathetic. Y’all got us. Good job. Y’all got your money and ran.

    My dude, one creature disables tek armor, another is designed such that in one mode  it BREAKS high quality and/or advanced armor as well as offeres two additional modes for slowing or DoT, and the last provides the flight capabilities of a tek chest piece at a fraction of the noise. Lost Island may have a hiccup or two but I'm no way is one of the issues the fact that dinos are PvE based.

    Sounds like you're one of the people still mad that it won the final vote a few months ago. It's pretty useful in the right hands, just don't go into it expecting some super mega ultra tame.

    It has been on a huge discount on PS a while ago, think just before the launch of Genesis. That was the base game and the first set of DLC.

    Where can I contact Wildcard in a manor that they are likely to see it? I have an important suggestion for the game, but the forums are washed out by people complaining about petty things, so game suggestions are hit-or-miss, regardless of how potentially brilliant they are.

    I can’t find a real email address, only the website that makes you type the email ON the website, which means it doesn’t appear in MY email. So I doubt it’s real.

    I have very good suggestions that have been well received on YT comment sections and subreddits, so I think they’re quite good suggestions.

    Any constructive help is appreciated.

    nah, just bothered by the fact how it all went.. but that´s not the motivation. Been looking at the creatures and their abilities and by my opinion it´s just not as good as the Amarga and stays behind some other map exclusive tames like Deinonychus or Bloodstalker. But delivered as ordered, I guess.

    Is snap cycling ever going to be fixed? I'm pretty much done playing untill I can switch snap points without punching like a crazy person.
