This is asking for quite a lot, but once the submissions have ended, could we get official artwork of all 10 creatures, as well as a few of the creature's ingame abilities, just so we know what we're voting for? Abilities and design can make or break a creature, and I saw a lot of people upset about the Dinopithecus's lack of weapon wielding, so knowing what the creatures have beforehand would be really nice.

Given the fact that ark 2 is (theoretically) right around the corner I'm curious as to whether Fjordur will see its addition to the official maps in ark 1 or be added as the first map to the sequel should said sequel follow the original formula. Either way I really hope that wildcard doesn't do what it's been deadset on doing in the past and gutting content. The fenrir is still a work in progress and its creator says that it's addition isn't guaranteed so that could go either way, but I'm sick onto death of having rock drakes cut from maps designed to have them.

It will be coming to Ark 1 not Ark 2.

Ive been thinking about this: UpFromTheDepths suggested the dinopithicus could have a bandolier to hold grenades in, from there it could throw grenades. instead, it eats grenades, poops them out, then throws them. why is this? Ive realised, the bandolier would be a saddle, they never wanted to put a saddle on the dinopithicus because then, the saddle would determine the damage each grenade does. does this mean that, either 1. the dinopithicus's melee determines the grenades damage. 2. the grenades will always do a set amount of damage which just makes the... no wait then this would be an extra step making this redundant so... My guess is the dinopithicus is a way to get more damage out of your grenades with out having to make the worlds most expensive tropeo saddle.

The artwork is cool and all, but I would really like to see if some stuff is being worked on.  What bugs are being looked into?  What QOL conditions are being considered (the QOL catalog is outdated IMO)?  Just a short list of things that would be nice to see since Ark 2 isn’t coming out until 2023 ( should be longer IMO):

Some sort of device to read live birth creatures.

A fix to troughs showing ranges on log ins when they are on hide range setting 

Allow HLNA to be utilized on other maps or an improved spyglass

The ability to transfer boss trophies and flags to other maps (but maybe make it so they are display only)

Allow the transfer of element or shards in PvE

The ability to start boss fights from transmitter 

Investigate why Gen 2 servers are crashing during events across platforms(it happened during summer bash, fear evolved and a lot people got shafted on the extra life event)

Last but not least, fix the hover skiff tractor beam so it’s not so derpy

Other than that looking forward to Turkey Trials and hoping the servers are somewhat stable and playable.

Would you like them to forward their meeting schedules for this week and plans for lunch as well?

Ya know that was a little uncalled for, did I say that?  No.  Are those things I listed things that many have talked about in servers?  Yes!  Where in anything what I posted is justified to receive a response like that?  The point I was trying to make was that the communication out of WC needs to be much better than it is.  How many other people on this forum gripe and complain and hardly get a look at and I get that kind of response?  When I’m just throwing up some things that MAYBE might be a good thing to come to the game that others have expressed as well, in a place where I know WC will see it!  I come here for the same reason everyone else does, information about the game, events and what might be to come.  Not to get a sarcastic, simple minded response that does nothing to intellectually advance constructive discussion from a volunteer moderator on a forum that I had thought was the sole purpose therein, to talk about the game we all love??  Introduce ideas?  Express concerns?  If there was something else bothering you fine, we all have those days but there’s no need to take it out on anyone unprovoked.  The times I have come here and laid out my frustrations has not been towards anyone EXCEPT WILDCARD!  If it’s about the complaints here about the game then my only answer is, maybe those enabling WC to produce mediocre should stop.  Maybe it’s time WE ALL hold WC to a higher standard in which we all know they are capable of.

 

To Joebl0w13:  I would greatly appreciate it if you refrain from unprovoked responses like that,  I didn’t attack you, don’t attack me.  Thank you.

People have been complaining about WildCards 'communication' for 6 years. It's a video game. They communicate everything the player needs to know to play it.

People arguin about this and that, what WildCard should do and doesnt is done yet... Yeah its too much to aASK to WildCard... you are asking to a "small" company to compare to "Huge" companies... i really doesnt expect anything else well done from WildCard, they promises stuff and never they make their promises done... thats why i started to play other games and just come to my servers when i need to refresh... why? Bc the game and devs arent so devoted to the game as a long time ago... they only sellect the "Good Vibes" messages and never give a "thing" to the people that is asking the real stuff been done from a long time ago... they released a non finished game since BETA, for me... FOR ME... its still BETA and tehy make money for new players when they BUY the full game. Im not interested any more in this game neither in trust in this company since more than 6 years playing or so... (i really lost time of playing this game). Old gamers always have the REAL view of the game, not the newies... bc the newbies have the latest view and ii SEEMS to be awesome, cool and whatever... Old Gamers in this game knows better the HISTORY of this game, and really we doesnt have the support that we deserves...

 

Thank you very much for your reading... but no... we cant do anything to have what we deserves... just excuses...

 

Good Luck...

 

Have fun... with other games... of course.
