  • Community Crunch 409: Introducing Xiphactinus from ARK:Additions!

    welcome_crunch2023-1.png

    Remember when we announced that Ceratosaurus from ARK:Additions is being integrated into the core game in the last Community Crunch? Well, get ready, because the fearsome Xiphactinus is next! Even though we may make a few changes to the design of the creatures from ARK: Additions, these beasts are going to shake up the game in mid-May!
    Which of Garuga's creatures are you hoping to see get integrated?

    Be wary of the open ocean, for there lurk shoals of Xiphactinus, relentlessly aggressive fish with appetites bigger than their bodies. These voracious predators will blindly attack anything in sight, so you'll need to act fast or become their next meal! They tend to become even more ferocious in packs, so stay on your toes!

    Expire Servers Reminder.png  

    On April 8th, we deployed a new type of server across the network (for the various game types) that we refer to as "Expire" (which is what you can search for in the session filter). 

    These servers will be online until 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on June 1st. We're preemptively using our allocation for The Center to host some additional sessions that players can travel onto to farm, tame, and experience the Scorched Earth Gameplay. The same transfer restrictions apply in that you are only able to download your character, but you can freely take anything off. This is to help reduce load off some of the other servers, or provide players an option for those who just want to jump onto Scorched Earth temporarily.

    Please note that these servers will no longer exist after 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on June 1st, so if you intend to use them, remember to transfer your items/creatures/characters off before that date, as nothing will be saved beyond that time period.

    For the full list of the Expire servers, click here.

    I knew Xiph would be the one to join cerato, as it's the only one out of all the 10 that's going to be a 1:1 conversion (safe for the variant which is not coming to base game :( ). Anyway, happy to see what to expect next week (assuming it doesn't get delayed).

    The Xiph an interesting pick to say the least, it should make traveling the ocean much easier during the mid-game. I can’t wait to see it come to the main game! On the other side I was hoping for the other pick to be Deinosuchus but beggars can’t be choosers.

    Another great crunch guys! Thanks for the weekly updates. That dino looks awesome! Im loving PvP SE right now and i cant wait for Center!

    Please add a store in game that i can buy tradable currency or flat out buy resources! You have some serious potential waiting for you to capitalize on it. Please please please! Your community is practically begging you to take our money *insert fry meme*.

    This could rival elder scrolls online and world of warcraft micro transactions if you get on board while the game is fresh n fertile!

    That would be the best move for Wild Card, even though I personally don’t like the spider many people do and it would pull many in. However, I do like to see the Diamantino, Sivatherium, or Eocharia in the main game, all have such cool concepts and abilities.

    Let it come out as a mod 1st, the current one is not based on the one in the vote, there are plans in the works to many many of the vote creatures that lost into mods

    That makes a lot of sense of what you’re saying but the biggest comparison that came to my mind is with UpFromTheDepths Ledumahadi for Paleo Ark. Once it comes I hope Wild Card might add it eventually to the game, it can be a lovely addition to Scorched Earth along with the Fasalo. However, the main reason why I want Ledu is because it would be a “collab” with UpFromTheDepth who would own ownership still. In addition, he is a very talented and deserving person who has played Ark for what feels like decades now.

    I can assure you that the majority of the community would NOT want something like this. One of the biggest points of praise I've heard over the years for Ark is that all of their paid DLC actually feels like it's worth the money, and adding micro transactions for any element of the game would only work to tarnish that and make the community upset. At that point you may as well charge players for every fifteen minutes of playtime in the game.

    the archelon is really cool imo and if it's gotta be one that's already a mod I'd like that next, but I can't wait to see the garugopteryx or the suchomimus

    It is no longer a survival game that point, why not just join a boosted server and save your money?!

    Love how they are going to take someone else's creatures, mods, and tweak them to their liking, which means, they will screw them up and be no where close to what the author intended then to be.

    WC is literally making me not want to touch this stupid pos game anymore. They’re adding horrible dinos for no fkn reason. Nobody even uses he Xiphactinus mod yet they’re adding another stupidly aggressive ocean Dino just to make the ocean even worse. Clowns.
