Community Crunch 89 & Eggcellent Adventure!

Recommended Posts

Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! Let's get started with some news.

ARK: Eggcellent Adventure Pt 2

large.Easter-JPG.jpg.dd218b4944b30acfea0

The Eggcellent Adventure Part 2 is now live! 

PC Survivors can now experience the one-week-only "Eggcellent Adventure" Event! During this limited-time event, players can collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK, which they can use in special recipes to craft bunny-themed items such as Bunny Ears, or even a Bunny Costume for the Procoptodon!

(Don't worry, the event will be making it's way to consoles in the next major version!)

Introducing the Yutyrannus!

Earlier this week we announced the latest new creature that'll be soon on the ARK. If you haven't seen it yet, where have you been?! We're nice though, so we'll let you have another look:

A new Dino Dossier has been revealed, this one is everyone’s favourite fearsome feathered fearless fighter, the Yutryannus!

Player Procedurally Generated Maps!

large.PGM_1_1080p.png

The Procedurally Generated Map system allows players to make their own ARK maps by determining a myriad of landscape options from the heights of mountains, depths of valleys, and the number of lakes, rivers or oceans, to the kinds of each biome they want, and more! Let's check out the entries for this weeks contest! This week's contest winner is... EXFIB0!

Now let’s get to the contest!

There were 3 potential categories for survivors to enter their shots into and they were the following:

Three Categories

Wow really, no breeding+hatching for an EASTER event where its, at least on the commercial side, all about bunnies and eggs? 

I wonder if you intentionally raptor your reputation up or if you are so clueless that you dont even understand not even the basic things your community likes and wants. 

Also this half apology half justification for why you didnt plan to do an easter event is unbelievable - no poop your customers were expecting you do at least the same event on major holidays each year, this is just common sense guys, really. 

Throughout the last weeks after you raptored up the fliers, ppl were at least hoping for a breeding+hatching event on easter, saved eggs up for this weekend which is in some contries a 4 day vacation and you dont even consider thinking about such basic things like that.

This is... wow.. just wow.

The world does not revolve around you. It's their choice to do what they want with an event and when they choose to.

It isn't a matter of cluelessness, just a choice based on the state of the game. The process of breeding, whilst yes could have some work done to it to make it more of an enjoyable experience isn't meant to be a quick one, enabling events where we increase the rates that affect that aren't going to happen very often. I understand that not many people are going to be pleased with that, but we didn't give any indication prior that we'd be hosting an event (which we normally do in the patch notes for quite a while). 

I assume by half apology/half justification, you're probably referring to my tweet-longer I made earlier in the day. That was in response to players asking why the easter event isn't something new, and why it was coming late on some platforms, and that's because it isn't a priority right now. Our focus is the main game, and as much as we'd like to do all the events and make them these huge festive experiences, sometimes they're going to have to take a back seat. 

As for fliers, there's a lot of commentary on that already out there and we've expressed how we feel about them, as well as where they fit into the game, obviously there are going to be occasions where people feel we've taken the wrong step, but ultimately we believe those balance adjustments were necessary for the health of the game. 

Hopefully, you're still able to enjoy the Easter Event and make the cosmetics if they're not your cup of tea, we've still got a regular Evolution Event running and if that's still not your thing, that's completely understandable. Hope you have a good Easter weekend!

Aye, will see if we can get one of these done soon. I know, it's always soon! But quite literally spending every moment on development. Will try and make sure the next one is juicy.

When will you finally fix the breeding bug? Baby's  can simply die of hunger when there is food in their inventory, and there is food in the food trough. They die when we go to bed, or just leave the game for a few hours. FIX FINALLY AT ALL AT THESE. THIS BUG IS ALREADY SEVERAL WEEKS, AND YOU HAVE NOT FIXED IT TO THIS TIME. ALL BREEDING NOW CAN DIE.

Then i do hope you'll address some of the questions related to the Xbox One and the issues we're having with it. The Xbox One community is part of the same overall community. Granted we paid way more to have player dedicated servers up and running, which currently are a huge mess at the moment.

 

No wanting to derail, but seeing as you were responding to others, i had to jump at the chance.

 

Grats to the winners. Love the art as well. Everyone's a winner imho.

Surprised no one else made some Easter themed content submissions  o:  Holiday stuff is always fun, but Easter is a tough theme.

Wow really, no breeding+hatching for an EASTER event where its, at least on the commercial side, all about bunnies and eggs? 

I wonder if you intentionally raptor your reputation up or if you are so clueless that you dont even understand not even the basic things your community likes and wants. 

Also this half apology half justification for why you didnt plan to do an easter event is unbelievable - no poop your customers were expecting you do at least the same event on major holidays each year, this is just common sense guys, really. 

Throughout the last weeks after you raptored up the fliers, ppl were at least hoping for a breeding+hatching event on easter, saved eggs up for this weekend which is in some contries a 4 day vacation and you dont even consider thinking about such basic things like that.

This is... wow.. just wow. 

ungrareful and disrespectful. entitled brat

Surprised no one else made some Easter themed content submissions  o:  Holiday stuff is always fun, but Easter is a tough theme.

I'm sure there probably will be now that the event has started.

Even if there wasn't one, sometimes ya just got to be creative and make it happen yourself :P Power of imagination.

True, but Easter goes through 2 weeks. Starts on Friday which is usually the day the submissions close and ends on Monday. So there could have easily been submissions in the next one without the event.

Aye, will see if we can get one of these done soon. I know, it's always soon! But quite literally spending every moment on development. Will try and make sure the next one is juicy. 

Cool-beans! Thanks for the reply I know you're busy and I'm grateful for the hard work you and the others put in to Ark.

It isn't a matter of cluelessness, just a choice based on the state of the game. The process of breeding, whilst yes could have some work done to it to make it more of an enjoyable experience isn't meant to be a quick one, enabling events where we increase the rates that affect that aren't going to happen very often. I understand that not many people are going to be pleased with that, but we didn't give any indication prior that we'd be hosting an event (which we normally do in the patch notes for quite a while). 

I assume by half apology/half justification, you're probably referring to my tweet-longer I made earlier in the day. That was in response to players asking why the easter event isn't something new, and why it was coming late on some platforms, and that's because it isn't a priority right now. Our focus is the main game, and as much as we'd like to do all the events and make them these huge festive experiences, sometimes they're going to have to take a back seat. 

As for fliers, there's a lot of commentary on that already out there and we've expressed how we feel about them, as well as where they fit into the game, obviously there are going to be occasions where people feel we've taken the wrong step, but ultimately we believe those balance adjustments were necessary for the health of the game. 

Hopefully, you're still able to enjoy the Easter Event and make the cosmetics if they're not your cup of tea, we've still got a regular Evolution Event running and if that's still not your thing, that's completely understandable. Hope you have a good Easter weekend! 

 

 

As a side note, I don't think a flyers mk3 is needed. I am happy with the current state 

 

Just give the whiners a config and call it gg

Although I understand the reasoning behind this, I do hope you guys understand the nature of gaming addiction at least to the point that you will consider shifting the system such that people who are driven to getting 100% imprints can still function and get the required sleep. I have encountered way too many people who are not getting the sleep their bodies require in the pursuit of the perfect dino. Either by allowing someone who did not to do the original imprint to continue the imprint process in tribe while the original member sleeps, or allowing a daily 10 hour period where the entire process can be frozen to allow people to get to work and home again before continuing, after all most people are either at school or work during a large portion of the day. A surprising amount of people spend days raising gigas or similar to get that 100%, and that is simply detrimental to their health.

You will often find that extreme guy on most servers that before tribe count nerf had 1000+ dinos most of them bred to near perfection indicating months of zero to no full sleep.

In my view any game that requires you to forego vital things to your health to get the optimal result has gone somewhat astray.
