    Maybe you guys could finally add the Vampire/Werewolf disease transformations you had planned for Fear Evolved in 2016. I had a source tell me that you almost had it done and working well but then scrapped it. Other than that, I loved the Dodo Rex/Wyvern Events you used to have, so more of that kind of thing would be fun!

    There should be a way to separate the balances made to dinosaurs and game mechanics between PvE and PvP. Multiple balances have made PvE nothing but hard. Managarmr being a recent example, in PvE they're useless now thanks to the many balances made to make PvP better. Flier nerf was a huge change in PvE making fliers and transportation harder by forcing us to land since PvP was taking to the skies too often and the game tried to "ground" the fight

    Deinonychus Common Name: Deinonychus Species: Deinonychus magna pede Time: Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild By the time you hear the scurrying claws of the Deinonychus, it's often too late. Superior hunters, they leap from a hiding place and pounce on their prey. The Deinonychus is an agile climber as well, jumping from wall ledge to wall ledge as it seeks high vantage points to lie in wait. A hungry Deinonychus tends to be fearless and will hunt prey much larger than itself, latching onto a dinosaur's back with its sickle-shaped claws, then starting to feed before its victim is even dead. While it likes its meat fresh, a Deinonychus isn't above scavenging a carcass if no other food is available. Domesticated Raising a Deinonychus in captivity requires an ample food supply, as they have a fast metabolism to match their high activity level. The Deinonychus is also fiercely territorial near nests with eggs, even if the eggs aren't its own. This makes breeding successive generations a hazardous process. Unless raised from eggs, they cannot be tamed; the hunter instinct of a wild Deinonychus is so strong that it reflexively pounces on a would-be master. When will this creature make its first appearance on the ARK? Find out more soon!

    IMPORTANT: Active Enforcement Initiative In an effort to maintain a healthy playing environment, we will be doing active enforcement on the servers listed below. These servers will be down for a few hours while this initiative is ongoing.

    Allow an option when placing or once placed to toggle show range on troughs this way we can place Dino's around them or litter our base with them and not have any Dino's out of range. The mechanic exists with Dino leash or Tek generators, just needs implementing into the radial menu for troughs

    Ahoy Survivors, Jeremy and Jesse here! You might have noticed the announcement today of a new MMO game called ATLAS developed by a sister team of Studio Wildcard, named Grapeshot Games. Jesse and Jeremy together are now leading the development of ATLAS at Grapeshot, while continuing to creatively supervise the direction of ARK. Grapeshot itself is comprised of some original ARK team members as well as many new hires and operates as a separate dedicated dev team. The Wildcard team meanwhile has grown developing ARK and Extinction over the past year, led by Lead Programmer Chris Willoughby and Senior Producer Colin Tennery, and have been doing an excellent job bringing fresh ideas and QoL improvements to the game. As we work together with Chris, Colin, and the rest of the team, Wildcard will continue to support and expand ARK over the years to come bringing new features, fixes, and expansions into the game. Grapeshot meanwhile will grow in a direction oriented towards the operation of the persistent MMO service that ATLAS is, while both games will share technology and infrastructure improvements to complement each other. We’d like to thank everybody for their long-standing support, love of ARK, and enthusiasm for survival games, and we look forward to the adventures ahead! Keep on surviving, Jeremy and Jesse Co-Creative Directors of ARK and Co-Founders of Studio Wildcard

    I've been making event mods for quite a while. People generally want: To decorate their bases (without grinding for materials -- the first Christmas forced everybody to fight for Santa drops for days, just to build a single Christmas tree) Fight new monsters (Dodo Rex, Dodo Wyvern, Zombie Dodos, etc) New ways to get cool loot (Santa drops, etc) New dinos and new items, such as Flying Brooms during Halloween (like I've done in ARK Hallows Eve, etc) Feel free to look through my mods for ideas. I submitted these for sponsorship, but there didn't seem to be any interest for some reason. ARK Hallows Eve: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1167006915 Dynamically generated Graveyards which have: Erie smoke clouds with custom suspense music Randomly generated gravestones that can be searched, revealing a custom skeleton monster or an admin-configurable loot chest. Flying Brooms Multiple types User-configurable Glowbugs that flutter around the broom, to make it easy to find at night Can fish while on the broom Speed and flight/ground abilities are fully admin configurable Can be picked up and carried in inventory after you land Skeleton Costumes for Players Candy Baskets (Randomly gives "Trick" or "Treat" candies. Tricks make you do something silly, and Treats give you buffs) All the holiday skins/decorations that are fully resizable Clown Balloons that pop when you hit hard objects. Can be used to apply Torpor to teammates, so you can put on a clown mask and jump your friends Custom music player for the Fear Evolved theme music etc, etc Autumn Feast: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1207997302 Added wild Turkey spawns. Turkeys are tamable and breedable. Build the special "Double Barreled Poultry Pulverizer" (shotgun) to hunt birds Insta-gibs Argents, Terror-Birds, Dodos, and Turkeys When a bird is shot with the gun, no XP is given, the bird explodes in a poof of features, and it drops a custom "Bird Carcass" Pluck the Bird Carcass for Feathers (used to craft skins, such as the Chieftain hat) Deep Fryer Placed plucked bird carcasses in the fryer, along with veggies, and craft Autumn Feasts! Autumn Feasts can be placed on tables, and contain a certain number of Servings based on the size of the bird used Players can place plates on tables, and clicking a plate will pull a Serving from a nearby feast. Clicking the plate again will eat the Serving. Eating Autumn Feasts gives you a "Stuffed - Digesting!" buff, which slowly gives the player food/water over time as they digest. It also increases their insulation stat slightly, because they're fat now. Holiday Delight: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=822564503 Added all of the Winter Wonderland decorations back into the game, and added some new ones. Players can build and sit on a custom Santa Sleigh for fun/screenshots Custom music player (Holiday Delight Wreath) plays the WInter Wonderland music The Snowman has been overhauled to produce snow in the area, and all of his sockets have been overhauled to allow every helmet in the game to snap to his head. Holiday Stockings have been fixed to allow player names The gift-wrap present has been updated/fixed, and now include custom sounds/effects when opened etc, etc

    Rest in Peace SMO ALCON, Ark Devs, and Ark Social Media, I have reached out to Wild Card a few times over email and messenger, but my requests turned up nothing so far and no responses so I figured I would try the forums. My tribe mate of 3+ years and nearly 5,000 hours has passed away from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was only 17 years old when he passed. We are on Island Server 46 Official PVE. We have been setup there since the server opened 3 years ago. One of his last requests was for a Laptop so he could play games like Ark while hospitalized. We setup a GoFundMe server wide and reached enough people to get him the funds to do so. Unfortunately, he passed away a couple weeks ago. Pictures of his character sleeping in a bunk bed in front of a transmitter were even used at his funeral as seen in the attached image. SMO was his character name and he loved Gigas. I have fridges full of his podded Gigas of all colors. He even named the base GigaCity. He was an amazing guy and some of you may even have interacted with him as he was a heavy trader on the forums. We on server 46 would like to host a Giga March in his memory where we will run around the entire server with his Gigas following us on ours. All that I ask from the people of Ark or Wild Card is assistance in locating a means to let this Giga March lead to something greater. Maybe a non-profit organization donation, Cancer foundation donation or children cancer hospital donation of some kind. We could have multiple servers run Giga Marches and twitch stream them. I am open to anything and anyway to try and make a difference for future cancer patients. They could be gamers just like the rest of us, but struck down so young by a terrible disease. Please any ideas, mediums or ways to let this turn into something greater would be greatly appreciated. We will miss you SMO.

    ARK: Community QOL Catalog ARK: Community QOL Catalog The ARK community catalog is a list of proposed changes from the community and the design team. It's an universal list that the design team will work off of when prioritizing work. This is not meant to indicate that the items listed will go into the game. What is a quality of life request? It's generally considered a minor tweak to something that will result in a major convenience. What's the point of this list? Being a gamer, I realize it's hard to realize what the development team have and haven't seen. This isn't meant to replace our traditional methods of raising concerns and requesting changes to the game. This is a visibility and awareness initiative. If something isn't on this list, it's very likely it's not on a radar. I believe there's some value in knowing that as a gamer. What about bugs and requesting new content? This list is meant to encompass quality of life requests. While that term may be subjective, this isn't a list that's meant to contain new game additions IE: Add 3 Man servers. It's also not meant to be a bug list IE: Fix Manticore landing. While we may benefit from a list that's dedicated to those things, that's not what this list is meant for. What should I expect to happen? What I'd like to do next is have a session with the design team and begin indicating things we aren't going to do. That will leave us with a list of things we'd actually work on. From there, I'd like to indicate when we begin working on an item off of this list Will you keep adding to this list? Yes. I'll only be adding new quality of life requests to this sheet though. There's no update frequency at this moment. What are the statuses? Complete: We've completed and deployed the line item Archived: It's an item that has been seen/discussed with the design and development team New: It has not been seen by the design and development team Queued: The development team likes the idea and will prioritize it to be included in the future. Not Considering: The design and development team has seen the line item but will not be adding it. Why Google Sheets? We have internal systems that we use for project management, and rather than adding another system for them to manage (Trello, etc), I'd rather keep it simple and straightforward for the moment. In addition, we have a forum that I'd prefer to utilize over Trello. If this is something that is sustainable, we'll look at different ways of integrating this into the forum. What do I do if my request isn't on here? If your request is a bug, a new addition to the game, or not generally considered to be a quality of life request, it won't make it on this list. If it is and it's not listed, it'll get added in time. Ok, enough.. Where is it? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oMHjs3UiR2OwvUn0V6QQogL4uT0XRtxrua8Gs6mFa5M/edit#gid=0

    Providing a fair, fun, and safe environment for everyone is something we take very seriously here at Wildcard. Building an enforcement team was the first step to making sure that people can enjoy ARK without fear of cheating. Since the introduction of the enforcement team, we've noticed a considerable improvement in the overall quality of life of those playing on our official servers. In severe situations, like someone meshing or duping or spreading information related to such, our first instinct is to try and take action with the intention of preserving the integrity of our official server network. When someone is banned as a result of our Code of Conduct, there is an appeal process that allows for a fair review of the situation. There are always two sides to every story and we want to remain impartial and hear both. Any issue that violates our Code of Conduct is subject to a fair appeal process. When things land in the gray area, our first instinct is to do whatever is in our power to prevent abuse. Upon further review of the situation involving H.O.D Gaming, we felt that it was not deserving of a permanent ban. Videos showing exploit techniques are admittedly a gray area when it comes to enforcement, which is just one of the reasons why the appeal process exists for bans. Several changes each patch are aimed at fixing exploits but the methods that are used are continually evolving; as such, we are always trying to improve our procedures when it comes to situations that affect the player-base. We use these situations to take a look at our internal process and identify areas where we can do better or provide more clarification. There are established methods for escalating exploits to the development team that exist to prevent the spread of information to the general public. The more widely known an exploit is, the more likely it is to be exploited. In these instances you should file your report on the SurviveTheARK website. You can find the link to report abuse or bugs under the support header. We want to make sure that everyone can enjoy their experience on our official network and will continue to take exploit matters seriously. As always, we value community feedback and encourage you to share it with us. Thanks for your continued support and passion for the game! Team Wildcard

    PS4 console user I would like to see a special slot added to all items that use gas for power. You put the gas in there, but it stays put, like a dino's saddle when you do a transfer all. So let's say you load up your Indy Grill with meat. You place in units of gas as well, and start cooking. Minutes later, you access the grill, and hit transfer all into your character. The cooked meat transfers back to you, but the gas stays with the Grill in it's special slot. The only way to remove the gas, would be to specifically select it, just like when removing a saddle from a dino.

    It's that time of year again, ARK: Survival Evolved is celebrating it's 4th birthday today! It's been FOUR YEARS since we first entered into Early Access on Steam. Hard to believe it's been that long, isn't it? From humble beginnings waking up naked on the beach to saving planet Earth from giant roaming Titans, it feels like we have done it all. And we have loved each and every moment of development, meeting you at events, hosting streams, and watching your content. Thank you so much for all the support you've shown us over the last 4 years. The past year has been a busy one for us. With the help of our vibrant community, we have been able to achieve quite a lot! Today we're taking a look back on all that's happened in the world of ARK in the last year. Things started out strong with the release of ARK on mobile! For the first time survivors were able to hold ARK in their hands and play on-the-go. If you haven't tried ARK on mobile, you can check it out for iOS and Android. Later in June we launched our ARKaeology event, where survivors were greeted with new stunning dinosaur skins and dig sites to unearth dinosaur bones and goodies. With the announcement of our third expansion pack ARK: Extinction coming later in the year, June was also the first edition of the Extinction Chronicles which included the TEK Rex as well as the first piece of corrupted armor. July, August, September brought with it a new TEK dinosaur each month, and one piece of the corrupted armor for survivors to collect. Our modding contest was launched in September, awarding big cash prizes to support our talented ARK modders. October was the final Extinction Chronicles that brought with it the TEK Quetzal and the final piece of corrupted armor to complete the five piece set. In October we participated in TwitchCon and gave influences a sneak peek at the Extinction orbital supply drop game mode. It was the first time survivors were able to get their hands on anything to do with the expansion pack. In November we participated once again in the Extra Life campaign raising money for sick kids charities. Together we raised $76,000+ over the course of our 25 hour live stream on Twitch. On November 6th ARK's third expansion pack ARK: Extinction became available for players to experience! New titans and bizarre element-infused creatures roam the desolate planet Earth and gave players a totally new experience unlike anything before. At the end of November, ARK became available on the Nintendo Switch! December borught the holiday season and with it, the return of Raptor Claus who had a new guest along with him this year: Gacha Claus! Romance was in the air during February with our cheeky Valentine's Day event. In March of this year we were finally able to get the kibble rework and Structures Plus into the hands of players under the name ARK: Homestead. April brought with it the return of Eggcellent Adventure, an event in which players must collect eggs to decorate and craft skins and holiday themed items. In May we announced our most recent mod contest, which just opened for entries! If you're a modder, definitely check out the mod contest and you could possibly win big cash prizes! Last but not least, Snail Games’ open world, voxel-based sandbox survival game PixARK launched for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One & Xbox One X, and PC on Steam this May! Thank You! On behalf of everyone here at Studio Wildcard, thank you for joining us on this journey and for being an awesome member of our tribe! We don't plan on slowing down any time soon, and the year ahead is shaping up to be another great year for ARK. We hope you join us. Keep on surviving!

    Survivors, We wanted to give everyone an update regarding the lost character situation on our official servers. A change we made last week resulted in some players vaults to be destroyed and items to be lost. Once we realized the extent of the issue, the decision was made to rollback the Official Server Network. Widespread rollbacks are something we actively try to avoid due to the complications and unpredictable results that can arise from doing so (duping, lost characters, lost progress, etc). It’s not a common practice or occurrence that you as a player should expect. However we realize in extreme circumstances, like last week, there will be times when a rollback of this magnitude is inevitable and the best course of action for us to take. While our goal is to prevent rollbacks from being a necessity, the recent events have highlighted opportunities we have to improve on our rollback processes in the event that it’s needed in the future. Whenever there are in-game issues like rollbacks that have affected your character or items, our Customer Service support team is there to help. After submitting a ticket, a GM receives the request and reaches out to schedule an appointment. Tickets are addressed on a first come, first serve basis. Under normal workload, a GM is able to respond to a ticket within a couple of days. Due to the influx of new tickets related to this recent issue, the wait time has significantly increased. For this, we apologize. We realize this is not an ideal situation and will look at ways to improve that experience for you. It is important to note that currently GM’s must make in-person appointments to address a large portion of the tickets and coordinating with many different players can be a monumental task. Going forward we’re looking at additional ways for Customer Service to be able to address some tickets without needing to meet in-person which will allow for faster turnaround times and a more efficient process overall. The Customer Service team has made this incident a priority and are responding tremendously to the influx of tickets. We all realize how important your characters and items are to you. In light of the increase in tickets due to the rollback we implemented, we will be disabling the auto-decay timer for PC and XBOX on the official network temporarily to allow more time for Customer Service to address the ticket influx. As this affects server performance, this is a one-time exception that is being made considering the circumstances. Once auto-decay is re-enabled in a months time the timers will resume and you’ll need to log on to prevent your structures and tames from auto-decaying. We will give a weeks notice before turning back on auto-decay. We know our community invests a lot of time into their characters, dinos, and items. We apologize for this inconvenience and will work diligently at improving our processes going forward. - The Studio Wildcard Team

    its funny that people with a low post count want a wipe, and people with a high post count dont want a wipe. new players will always want a wipe, that will never change, they want to start equal with all the others. 90% of the starters only play this game for a few weeks upto a few months, and there would be more people that want a wipe because there will always be more starters then established players. this is why it is extremely hypocritical and mean to ask for a wipe because statistics say that you are not even here anymore after 3 months. some dinos like tuso mosa and basilo take 1.5 years where they are now, they are op, but they are not even close to max possible. you want to wipe this work.

    I firmly believe, that since the kibble system is a core mechanic, it most definitely should work on each server in isolation, since there are several reasons for people to only want to play on one map, not to mention it will also mean any combination of maps in a cluster is still working. The current kibble system fails in this regard. The problems: Golden eggs are in their current state classed (by me) as unobtainable with regards to making more than just the odd kibble. That means The Island and The Center really have no feasible way of getting Extraordinary kibble. As for the other maps, what I gather from the forums is that Wyvern and Rock Drake eggs work ok and as either of these is present on all the other maps, I guess there isn't much of a problem there. However, I don't know how feasible obtaining these dinos is on those maps. Another thing is the low amount of dinos creating exceptional eggs on Scorched Earth and Aberration or All the dinos without any preferred kibble. The names are too confusing! Basic and Simple are pretty much synonyms and indistinguishable, same goes for Superior and Exceptional Solutions: 1. First, I'm quoting @Eldar Seer since I believe that is a sound suggestion: Another solution could be to change the mechanic for Hesperonis to lay golden eggs so that they lay regular eggs every so often, just like all other dinos, but if they are allowed to hunt, they are guaranteed to lay a golden egg after a certain amount of fish killed, or an interval. But pretty please lower this interval in that case. Here, I'm assuming the devs aren't interested in adding dinos that can be bred into the "Special Egg" bucket. I'm not too fond of the above solution as it's still a hassle and only a minor improvement... another way of solving it would be to bump Yuty eggs to "Special Eggs" since they use the Extraordinary kibble anyway and the idea seems to have most dinos prefer kibble from their own egg level. Of course, a Giga could be bumped as well as they're rarer. 2. Bump the Megalosaurus or the Spino? 3. Give all the dinos that don't have a preferred kibble or special taming method a preferred kibble. That is: (Arthropluera), Compy, Lystrosaurus, Manta, Microraptor, Moschops, Oviraptor, Pachyrhinosaurus 4. Change the names to Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large and Special Kibble. To help visualise this, I entered some data into a spreadsheet: The lists of what kibble a creature's egg creates and what kibble the creatures prefer, is copied from the PC patch notes and the list of what maps each dino can be found on is made by myself by looking at the wiki's list of creatures for each map. This is where I'm most likely to have gotten something wrong. Please let me know of any errors in the data!

    We see that extinction has its city terminals that function like a teleporter, this seems to be a design choice based on the accident that it is so difficult to leave an aberration map that you map be on without building up to get climbing picks and finding a drop to escape from. So can we see charge stations have the "travel to another ark" option, even if they don't add the creature tab and the ark data tab, just the travel to another ark option to get stranded players off of aberration easier

    Adding new dinos that would just do the same things as the dinos we already have would become boring very fast. Adding stuff like this, whatever it is, can add much more variety and encourage more people to get them or craft them rather than spend time going out and taming a dino that is the same as everything else. I think by now, after 3 DLCs and more to come that people should have come to terms with the fact this is not a 100% dino game.

    I've done trading before, with some of the biggest traders in Ark. And there have been times when the trade was for a large amount of desired resources. Since there is a transfer limit of 50 stacks of anything at one time, and weight being an issue, sometimes using an alliance as a means of trade is the only reasonable course of action. In such cases I've been invited to an alliance to ease the burden of trading. Many people have and have been honest in their dealings. This is a fairly common practice in trading although going forward it probably won't be. You're right, it's not a bug. It's a horribly designed mechanic that can be exploited. And it's not ignorance about not knowing enough about the alliance system, it's being part of a community and how that community functions through a trade system that is also horribly designed. Instead of snarky comments perhaps show a little bit of freaking empathy for a person who just had thousands of hours wasted and potentially had an amazing game ruined for them. edit: Poppet, if they're still playing send my sympathies. Sucks it happened to them when they've always been fair and nice traders.

    Bah. Already tired of all the whining. The cheapskates just need to mow more lawns. The game is incredible value for the $$$.

    Read the room Wildcard. We don't want new stuff that's only temporary. We want you give permanent fixes for the current problems plaguing the game.

    I think as a whole, your fanbase and player community is a patient one. We are both understanding and empathetic to your issues when it comes to the release of a new map and the bugs that come with. I think the issue here and the reason your players are getting so angry is the lack of response from you, the developer. As I read all of these forum posts from many different and increasingly angry players, the one thing i notice is no reply from anyone on your side of the fence. Not a simple, " we see the issues and are investigating at this time" or " We apologize for the inconvenience, and are doing everything we can to find the source of the crashes", But nothing....not a single word from anyone. Not a tweet, not a forum post, not a dev response anywhere to let your players know that help is on the way. From the players perspective, this makes them feel like noone is listening. Noone cares and their pleas for help are going unanswered. Like they are tal;king to nooone, and that leads to more and more frustration as we all stare at the server screen hitting refresh over and over and over again. I think if you acknowledged us and the situation you would be surprised just how understanding and patient we can be. We are your fans, your customers and many of us are loyal ones. Weve stood here beside you through many years since the early access of Ark, and we will continue to stand by you in eager anticipation for what lies ahead. All we ask is that you say something, anything, to let us know that you are on our side as well. yours truly, Erik

    Many of us have requested this many times. We would like to be able to turn off Bloom and Light Shafts from within the main options.

    This is a survival game but there is no real benefit to surviving most of the time. If I am in my base, why would I ever eat food or drink water? If I die from it while in my base I just spawn right there again. I had a friend that played and never ate or drank while near his base and was never penalized for this in any way. It might be nice to have a timer in the HUD that tells you how long you have stayed alive and then you are given some sort of bonus based on that. Bonus could be an experience buff, a stat buff or maybe just unlocks achievements. It just seems like commonsense to reward surviving in a survival game.

    It is amazing how many people just want to b*tch and moan. I have purchased 5 other PS4 games since I first bought ARK. The COMBINED time spent on those other games is what I normally spend in 2 two weeks on ARK. $100's of dollars in other games that I played thru once, and have no desire to go back to. Yet I keep coming back to ARK. I wish other things I enjoyed provided such an amazing Entertainment value : Investment ratio.

    The guy made a video that was basically a noob's guide to cheating and then filmed himself meshing on an Xbox Official Server. 100% guilty and deserving of the ban. The things people will sink to these days just to get a few subs/viewers on their videos...….

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Winter Wonderland 2018! Winter Wonderland is almost here! This winter-themed holiday event begins tomorrow at 10am PST for PC, Xbox, and PS4 and will last through until January 7th. All of our maps are supported in both single player and multiplayer. The event will automatically activate on any map, even on your modded map servers. Raptor Claus will be sailing across the night sky in his sleigh, air-dropping presents filled with high-end loot as well as Mistletoe, and Coal for those naughty Survivors. Raptor Claus won't be alone this year. He is joined by Gacha Claus who will be roaming all maps in a dashing Santa Hat and sporting holiday-themed colours to help out the very busy Raptor Claus. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday themed items, or you can trade in your mistletoe for weapons and armor! Gacha Claus will also have a random chance to gift you with a new special dino holiday candy when given mistletoe. This candy appears to have a strangely festive effect on any creature that eats it however. Better give it a try and see what happens. Bon appetit! Survivors can stay warm this season in their festively decorated homes with the holiday lights, decorative Christmas tree, wreaths, stockings, snowmen, and wrapped presents they receive from trading with Gacha Claus. Be sure to spread the holiday cheer wherever you go while it lasts! Be sure to send us all your holiday-themed pictures, videos, and artwork here on survivetheark.com or on Twitter as we'd love to see them! In addition to the holiday event, we've included a bevy of fixes that we're launching simultaneously across all three platforms. We're starting to reach into the backlog and fix issues that you've been asking for starting with improvements to commanding flyers and better AI for the Manticore. Patch Notes: Modding Community Updates! Fanart of the Week! The Pegomastax who stole Christmas by Erthera! Evolution Event! Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 21st of December at 1 PM EST until Wednesday the 26th of December at 3 PM EST.

I don't expect fixes should be received with fanfare and adulation because they're doing something that I would much prefer had been correct the first time...but for those who haven't perused the patch notes yet, I think it's worth noting that quite a few (but obviously not all) player concerns, frustrations, and outright failures have been addressed. It's best if it's right the first time, and great if it's wrong and fixed quickly...but even when it's painstakingly slow I have that "better late than never" mentality. I hope they keep this up in the coming weeks and months. Hopefully with Extinction released and teams split, this will mean many more fixes and TLC improvements are on the way like they said they were. We will see, but I feel like this is a good sign. Feel free to begin the hate fest, trash talking, and a never ending string insults and vitriol towards anyone who says something remotely nice about the game or WC. ?
