Many comments on these crunches are negative, so I'd like to take a moment to thank Wildcard for bringing us this amazing game. No matter how buggy it is, we all keep coming back due to how damn enjoy

Really excited to see a new creature submission in the works, I just hope it's managed a lot better than last time

Oh no,… not again,.. Carcharodontosaurus squad, let’s try to win this round I guess

I didn't vote or bother because voting is more of hey this tuber said let's vote for this. It rigs it and makes personal voting mean less. So unless my personal interests fallows a massive community voting the same It is pointless. I think every youtuber that suggested voting deserved a youtube strike. 

 

Btw devs your game is getting more and more broken on console. Our incubator had fresh eggs in it and thing flashed and all eggs r gone. My tek plot had gen on and fert and my meat plants did same thing my egg incubator did and it emptied.  Those seeds r so hard I probably won't find any more. As I ain't seen a seed sense start of summer event. 

 

But the issue is lag gets notable worse on regular intervals. And it never gets better just goes down hill. This has mass quitting occurring. I've seen long time vets walk away lately.  Cause lags getting so bad even some of us that delt with it worsen for years r done. Stuff dies. U can't claim babies. U get meshed into stuff walking and using a metal pick and you bag is gone and you can't get your gear back cause you got meshed into a small rock or something. When you destroy rock and still no bag it sucks. But ark just keeps getting worse.

 

Missions r such bs ones like star dolphin r like impossible on gama. Gama. And the enforcer like races need more time cause gama is bearly doable. So you need to fix it cause most people can't can't boss and it doesn't come down to skill or trying its dumb luck with star dolphin type ones.  

 

I am part of a large group that will not buy a new Xbox to buy your ark 2 when released. We have no faith in your ability to keep stuff working well after launch. Ark 1 use to work good on consoles but over time you let it slip. Alot of my friends share my opinion. We have no faith on you guys keeping it running well 6 to 12 months down the road as you let ark 1 fall apart and then say how proud you are of it. You are probably of a broken game. You must love getting nut checked.  Cause it's dumb to be proud of making a product more broken weekly or Monthly,  w.e. That's moronic Cedric! U r proud of taking our money and giving us a defective product.  

 

I can tell you what you company is among the top ones I won't play other games from for being like this.  It's ok if a released new thing has glitches and such.  But to never fix it and just make it worse. Doesn't matter. If you dump glitter on poop it's still poop. If u spray perfume on poop it's still poop. Poop is poop and ark is so poop now.  I'm a adult and I'm ashamed I've played ark and bought 2nd dlc and play a game you have zero care for it unless it's pc version. 

So, you think a content creator should get a strike for voicing their opinion on their channel, which you don't have to either watch or agree and adopt their opinion like a sheep? Not really logical, is it?

I'm on the same boat on console and one of the main reason I got PS5 was to enjoy a much better looking/running version of this game after so many years...alas...no need to get all that upset and salty over a game. It's why I'm not all that upset Ark2 ain't coming on PS. I had a good run with it and enjoyed it for what it was, but another 5+yrs of this sort of thing....no thanks.

Also, shouldn't get personal and attack someone like Cedric just doing his job. Just no need for it. You can voice displeasure at the company/service/product, but not the people imo. Reminds me of people calling up their service provider and shouting don the phone to the poor advisor on the other side of the phone as if it was them that wronged them personally.

I really hope you're being sarcastic, because there are at least 11 therapods to the 8 non-therapod dinos. Everything else is a mammal, monotreme, or water tame. I actually almost voted Carcha, but saw that it would be a glass cannon. Then the monke I ended up voting for has completely different abilities. The only way I can see a therapod winning a vote is if it fills a niche that you'd have to breed into, or teamwork to fill otherwise.

ah man, why so many giant therapods,we got one literally 3 years ago and the yuty is use less. every giant therapod has its uses.  giga,  the thing thatisscary and nasty. rex a strong boss killer, spino,utility rex also good for boss fights. the carchar will be a weaker giga with uniqueattacks andprobably a pack buff (probably not as strong as the wolf howl but strong enough to make it usefull.)  again "monke with gun monke with gun" its not gonna be "weak giga weak giga) i expect it to bemore of a utility giga.

actually the yuty does have uses.It has a roar which makes allied dinos have a buff.It also has a debuff roar which effects smaller creatures.Also the carchar probably wont do very much due to it not having a very strong bite so it probably wont even be able to break wood.Then again they did make the giga destroy stone even though it has a weaker bite than the rex which cant beak stone.So wildcard surprise us.

Wildcard literally can't add indominus unless they're willing to pay Universal Pictures for the rights to use their intellectual property. They almost certainly don't have the money to use its likeness and would be sued into bankruptcy if they tried it without permission. Also this map is supposed to be all about real prehistoric creatures this time.

Not to mention I don't think Henery Wu is on the lost island and if so he would make a giga-Wyvern hybrid. (Shudders) The mere thought is horrible. The indom would make lost island impossible.

So Monkey Fans got their poop-throwing "Monke" and still complain about the fact, that Theropod Fans could have a chance to finally get something they like, so both sides are happy.... yeah.. sure... 

I don't usually agree with you on well, anything But, WE NEED CARCONADONTHOSAURUS WILDCARD!!!!!!!! Also just think about it monkey and carconadonthosaurus fighting together.

While I'm certain the new vote may have more or less been made to stop the whining from the losing side, we as a community aren't in any way required to look at the new contest and go "Well shucks, I guess I'll just vote carchara now since dinopithecus won, it's only fair". or not give an idea flak. Not everyone may be interested in what's practically  giganotosaurus-lite and to expect dinopithecus voters to vote for or otherwise support it rather than the other competitors that they may fancy more is borderline insipid.

I'm pretty sure a theropod is a biped carnivore not herbivores like the galli and theri

they evolved from carnivores in theripoda and still had the pelvis shaped like this:   _______

it doesnt require it to eat meat, just posture and branch it evolved from                          /

im now seeing just a slanted T would have done it for pelvis demonstration.

Despite my view on theropods being too prevalent in game I decided after talking about velociraptor to slap together a little dossier, more so because I enjoy writing about this kind of stuff than because I actually intend to compete. Plus every now and again I feel people should consider adding tames that AREN'T just for end game players to try and tackle. If anyone likes the idea enough feel free to use my scribblings for it to add it as a competitor. Just credit whatever I write up please.

Velociraptor Vitae (Swift plunderer of life)
Diet: Carnivore
Preferred food: Mutton/Regular Kibble
Temperament: Opportunistic
Taming method: Passive*

"With its diminutive size, slight build, and feathery body, many survivors of the ark might mistake velociraptor vitae at first glance for its nocturnally predatory kin the troodon. Despite this initial assumption however the behaviors and hunting patterns of these creatures is, if one can pardon the pun, night and day. Whereas troodon favor aggressive night time assaults on hapless survivors and their smaller tames, vitae seem perfectly content to watch from a distance and strike only when doing so appears favorable. Another competitor in the now hotly contested title of smartest non-humanoid creature on the ark, Velociraptor will lie in wait with its pack mates for potential prey to become engaged  in a battle for survival with other small predators. Upon the target (or more accurately, targets) showing signs of being wounded, the alpha will announce the attack with a piercing screech before the pack swiftly descends on both parties in a flurry of feathers, fangs, and sickle shaped claws. More frightening is the fact that Velociraptor makes use of a similar tactic as its larger dromeosaur cousin deinonychus, latching on to and viciously mauling prey until blood loss claims it. When a survivor is at their lowest point, it is often these little nightmares that come to finish the job."
Domesticated
"As the second smallest dromeosaur on the ark Velociraptor is quite obviously impossible to use as a mount. Instead, Velociraptor finds its usage amongst tribes as a tool for asymmetrical warfare. Swift and all too adept at pack hunting, Vitae is commonly used either as a means of harassing survivors and smaller tames in combat or as a surprisingly fearsome guard dog. Some smaller tribes have even been known to pair them alongside dilophosaurs, dimorphodons, and other "harasser" dinosaurs to slow raiding attempts by would be attackers long enough for survivors to take up arms or bring a more powerful creature to end the fight."

Taming Method*: Since taming processes seem to be moving more away from the old fashioned tranq and feed of like to keep with the trend and do something a bit different but still relatively familiar. Taming velociraptor involves wounding other creatures around it for it to feed on. While obviously you can just shank something near you with a spear and let nature take its course your best bet at doing this would simply be to knock something out nearby, preferably with a club or bow to get in some good damage with the torpor so the process doesn't drag on. Dodos and other small dinos will do just fine to fill the taming meter and like troodon its effectiveness won't go dropping unless of course it gets hurt. Since it's almost never alone you'd do well to kill pack mates first.

Potential abilities/perks: 
-Deinonychus style latch and bleed attack on anything up to either human or gigantopithecus size
-Pack buff
-Warning call (really just the alpha signaling the pack to attack but it'd be a great raid alarm. Will require more than one velociraptor since it's an alpha specific ability)
-Armor (it's likely gonna be kinda squishy to make up for that early game ease of taming so this is a nice balance)

Utility: 
-Harasser
-Warning signal
-Pet

Dangers:
Velociraptor despite not being initially aggressive or too powerful will almost never spawn alone and will eagerly go after a reckless player if they don't play smart. Beach bobbing and suddenly get into a scrap with dilos? Raptor pack. Running for your life from a Rex or an angry theri and you fall off a high point and injure yourself? Raptor pack. Try to knock out any small creature without responsibly genociding every predator nearby? Boy you better believe that's a raptor pack coming to ruin that efficiency. This will be as much a "kick you while you're down" dinosaur as it is an interesting addition to your collection.

I would LOVE to see the v raptor in ark, and have it like a troodon that doesn't give torpor would be a nice addition as well, just, don't make it spawn on the beaches.

I know I am just saying that as an example of what they can do all I was saying is they need a way to stop this vote getting rigged by youtubers

Oh I get what you are saying, i'm just saying that is NOT an example of what they can do, because they can't give copyright strike for it.

I think we should have a Tek Spino added to all maps. It’s sail could be mental with a spikes with laser fields in between each spike(completely for looks). But the laser could different lights depending on the gender or just random. But allowing this to give off light at night time so no need for torch when out in wild even when not riding it. And could give option of closing sail so that the light can’t be seen in dark when playing PVP
