Greetings Survivors!

    I remember joining a friend's server for the first time, they had dragon mods and a cool map to look at so they invited me to check it out.  I spawned in and immediately got harassed by a pegomastix as I was trying to gather resources... I punched this pego in the face and it had tamed instantly! I stood there shocked at what had just happened while my friends were laughing so hard about it all... To this day we all laugh about it still! Funny thing is... Not long after.. I did it again! Who knew punching in the face would give you a friend or two

    so im level 50 right, so I was exploring around my base with my ptera and found a male 145 rex terrorizing the local herbivores around 300-500 meters away from my base, so i was worried that if it continues it would stumble its way to my base so I took 2 cross bows and 130 tranq arrows and set out to tame the mf before it shits on me and my base or at least lead it farther away

    well I was prepared to die, but uhhhh turns out the rex fell unconsious and Im taming it up rn

    now wth am I supposed to do with this thing, I cant even ride it till level 72 😭😭

    So... I was wondering if the awesome team at Wildcard had any information as to a possible ETA of the Charcharodontosaurus being added? It's got to be my most anticipating dino to be added right behind seeing the Rock Drake Reveal for Abberations Trailer, yall probably won't respond but this dino is the closest thing I'll ever get as an xbox player to the Ark Additions Acro and it would relieve me and probly others if we had any info as to a possible release? Or atleast any Community Crunch relating to it to keep us hungry for its arrival?

    Can you please fix dinos despawning/not spawning on Fjordur 1918? We are a week into an event with no way to gather meat to raise babies, and no dinos to tame for event colors. Not to mention half of the dinos that are spawning despawn during taming. This event is a flop. Should be extended after fixed. 

    All Fjordur servers are same, but they dont seem to care.

    Just a minor thought: Are the huge number of Alpha's eating the dino's before we can get to them?
    Still does not explains why a velonasour just despawns when nearly tranqued or why fish just pops out of the water to die.
    And I'm not even starting on the rubberbanding and teleport/moonwalk abilities of Alpha Raptors, or the +500ms latency for attacking, mountin/dismounting and some more serious UI response issues that got (again) worse.

    I was used (annoyed but used) to the delayed response of the last input when those 15 second minibreaks happened, but at this moment it turned into a series of delayed commands or minibreaks, making you mount and dismount faster than the imputs normaly register when the game picks up again.

    Please: give us some prospects about future improvements.

    @Cedric: Dear community manager, can you please manage our expectations? Just a little more communication would realy help to manage our expectations and reduce the frustration. Half the event is gone now and I never had such a [selfcencored] hard time managing meatruns or finding tames. The only thing we don't lack are berries, wood, stone and metal.

    If there is a moderator reading this can we have an ETA on spawn fix? Fjordur 1937 PS4 spawns have been dead for a week, only time there are dinos are around 2 to 6 am AEST and dinos are constantly despawning halfway through taming.

    I'm sure moderators are reading. Just wish Wildcard management would do, too.

    such a shame to see a rare creature walking the map.....and believe me any creature including dodos are rare right now, and watch it despawn in front of your eyes within minutes of you starting to tame it...............

    We are always reading. But we don't control anything happening in-game.

    Most of us realize that. Is there any way you guys can push the staff to be slightly more interactive with their users?
    The situation as it is now is realy a new level of low.

    Ced has been Tweeting about this issue over the last few days. They are fully aware of it. There's nothing us mods can do.

    Day 10 of barely ANYTHING spawning on Fjordur! 10 Days of an event wasted! No Dinos to do meat runs to raise babies. No wyverns to get milk from. No event dinos to tame during the event. Do you people read what your community reports to you? 10 days have gone by and nothing has been done. 

    Kinda weird that official servers have such issues, my own unofficial has stuff spawning fine.

    Unofficials aren't as intrinsically tied to the whims of wildcard and the questionable skills of their code monkeys. Unless it's something truly game breaking a lot of issues that can happen on unofficial can be solved by the owner of the server
