How does it feel that Genesis 2 is spoiled in a matter of a couple days?


Recommended Posts

How is it that I can't look at anything online without having the secrets and adventure to be had in Genesis 2 laid out in front of me, imo ruining the ARK experience I've been waiting for and now wish I could have had... already spoiled by the YouTubers and whoever else on the rest of the internet?  What happened to exploration and the adventure and the excitement of the unknown?

Also, how are all these people basically finishing the game in a matter of a day or so?

I've been following ARK since it was only the Island, back before the Carno even, and I haven't been able to bring myself to buy another DLC past Scorched Earth because of how quickly all of this gets ruined.    Even if I hide from the internet, I will easily log into a server and someone will have spawned in end game dinos, all lined up in tie dye rainbow colors playing their idle animation in unison...  surrounded by a full blown tech base with all the bells and whistles and features that were released only days ago.   This just isn't even close to what I expect or expected the ARK experience to be..   breaks my heart.

What has happened to gaming? 😪

 

Am I alone here?

Maybe I am...  I hope everyone is enjoying the new DLC either way. 🙂 Just wanted to give my 2 cents to the community and the devs if they care.

Isn't it your responsibility to avoid watching 'spoiler' youtube videos? 

Isn't it my right to get whatever information I think will increase the enjoyment of the game I choice to play?

The only thing that spoils the game for me is having creative/admin powers. YMMV but you have total control over your actions.

My older man advice is to put the self-perceived value of your feelings on a shelf, be a stoic, and do your own thing.

All games, movies, whatever have videos on youtube and twitch and spoilers and information everywhere.

Don't act as if this is the fault of the Ark community.

You can chose not to watch youtube videos of Ark Gen 2. Simple.

So, you're scouring the internet and youtube for information on Genesis 2.  You know content creators will churn out videos showing everything in 1-2 days of launch and chose to watch them. And then you blame others for not being able to restrain yourself from reading all the spoilers? 

That's like a gambling addict searching out every Casino in town and proceeding to waste all his money in them, then blame the Casinos. Personal responsibility...rule to live by

I was really just checking out the trailer and saw a massive amount of spoilers in the feed.

But you're right, I should know by now that everything is easily unlocked, spawned in...etc. for ARK.  The game is basically creative mode for a vast amount of the playerbase so it maybe it all makes sense.  I should know better by now,  or I do know better and was just hoping something was different this time around that would convince me this is worth playing again.

To each their own.  have fun bois and grils 😎

If anything can be suggested about this topic would be, if you use cheats then you dont get the cinematic. You can end the game, get the ascension levels, but the cinematic is locked until boss is defeated by some tribe who meet some parameters like no vr mission cheat unlock, no god mode, no infinitestats.

Sounds like it's your fault that you went on YouTube and saw all the spoilers.
Server problems? Probably best that you avoid the servers that are modded to crap and filled with abusive admins.
People finish the game in a matter of a couple days because they're tryhards and oftentimes use exploits.

There is certainly pressure for content creators to 'show all' and get the views, which I get. It's business after all. Some regular players just want to get to the end game stuff as quickly as possible I guess, but for me at least in PvE, It's all about the journey. Once I get to the ending, I mostly lose interest. It's like open world games where I space out main quest missions and do all the side quests in between, meaning by the time I get to the main quest ending, I only have maybe 10-15% of side quests left to do after that.
