Again, you are talking about the two only missions you have made in this DLC, come back when you'ld try alpha of escort or hunt missions. For now, you tested the most dumb missions (easy on gamma, impossible in Alpha, really hard in beta to finish manta race btw). You can't say the whole missions are dumb af when you only did 2 of them, that's completely an opinion made on nothing

 

You can't say there are more ppl disliking this DLC than ppl liking it. Because you can see both opinions here, and most ppl happy on the map won't come here to say they like it. Ppl are more tending to complain than hyping. Give me official datas.

Allow me to just insert myself into your conversation.

Let it be said, I am actually enjoying the expansion. As in, I frequently go to Genesis now, and I have a huge base on there. I play on an unmodded cluster but so I've been transferring a lot to Genesis. The criticisms I have aren't reasons why I hate it, they are reasons why I don't enjoy it more. I have heard some people make the point that Genesis is not a map you main on, it's a map you go to for adventures, and then you head back to your main base on whatever map that's on. Although a very unofficial/cluster point of view, I feel that way too, but if that's by design I have to scratch my head for a little. It can't possibly be by design considering how official servers work.

In some of the missions, like I did Ruffle Some Feathers. On gamma, you get a buff so that my dino did 10k damage to the yuty. Seeing those kinda numbers, and having the yuty die in like 5 seconds was no fun. I then re-did the mission on beta, and now I'm doing about 2k damage per hit. I assume on alpha I will do damage as if it were an X-dino I was attacking. So apparently, the quests work by a system where you have a buff that decreases up towards alpha that has no buff. I just really dislike this. It makes it hard to ever know your actual powerlevel vs. difficulty level of missions. This is another poor design. You shouldn't get buffs when doing easy missions, the harder missions should jsut be harder so you have an anchor for what your damage number means. If this was a tame I just brought out and it did say 7k to the Brute Yuty on Gamma and I had just did that, I don't really know how much damage that translates into if I'm doing a regular alpha dino on the Island. Could it kill Megapithecus? Who knows because the numbers are so janky and all over the place. I really don't get why they take away features, and I really don't get why they make confusing stuff like this.

Genesis is a prime example that some people can't accept change. It's also called taking for granted. Getting a DLC with another open world map, new dinos, blah blah blah, people will tame the ne

You guys need help I'm not sure what's going on with everything ..but GENESIS need alot of work..how you make a map with no flyers ..for some most of the game is flying and not loosing their birds.

Aberration had no flyers and it was honestly one of the better maps. I like Genesis. No fliers makes me want to use creatures like the Bloodstalker and Ferox for their traversal abilities as opposed t

People here try to make some in other opinions bad game mechanics seem valid with the ''ARK Story'' while 99% of players don't give a flying f*** about ARK's story ?

The story shouldn't matter at all in this open world survival game unless you are playing RP and that is probably less than 0,3% of all ARK players.

This game is not about it's story, no one buys this game and expects a good story, people want to build bases, tame dinos, grind resources or PVP, the super small % of people who care for the ARK story should really, really stop trying to argue game mechanics with some weird made up story that ''explains'' big restrictions/changes, this is not World of Warcraft.

I can't count how often I have read the ''BUT IT'S A SIMULATION'', NO please stop! It's just another map to play on. Please stop with this ''b...but SIMULATION'' garbage and actually talk about game mechanics. Sorry, it just bothered me ?

Ok, then go on a modded server, with custom maps. It's not about RP, just about something logical with the story and the map you're playing on. I wouldn't see the point to add a map without new restrictions/bonus on. Then, just do PvP or custom maps on PvE. If it is just "build bases, tame dinos, grind resources", you just have to come on Genesis to tame new dinos, get new engrams, and then go back to a previous server. Furthermore, just wait for tansfer to be open, come with OP dinos, rush boss to get all new tekgrams, go back home. End of story. New map are only funny when transfer are off anyway, after, it is just crushing everything with OP rexes or gigas.

@Alocostethat's exactly what I'm doing atm ^^. Also ''fun'' is very subjective, it's fun for you that way is what you should say.

Yeah, i won't deny it it is fun from my pov, depending how you are enjoying this game. There are so many differents ways to like this game. Some like only the building part, some PvP, some breeding, some harvesting, etc etc. I'm actually into cleaning the game (finding strats and way to finish the story ie final bosses), and also optimizing farming with new Tools (about quantity and time spent). Building, i'm such a lazy guy, i'll just make the minimum and the most functionnal base, like very small now with cryofridges x)

No? You could collect the glitches or magmasaur eggs basically any way you want. You can also tame an Astocetus without a Tek Skiff(With some difficulty though)

It's easiest if you use the new content, but in no way are you entirely limited to that content. I stole my first Magma egg with a Rex, and tamed my first Astrocetus with the old Paracer platform. 

Oh, ok just let me get Genesis, hop onto a server and then tame me up a good old pteranodon thenI'lljustflyonovertowhicheverbiomeIwantanddosomebarrelrollsalongtheway because there's nothing stopping me from fly......oh....wait.
