Sorry Jemcrystal, but I strongly have to disagree. I've seen quite a few of your replies on other forums topics come by lately and most are quite negative regarding game mechanics, which alot of other Ark players seem happy about..
On topic, they made the kibble system less complicated then it was, improving on new player friendliness, without completely makinging it way too easy. In games like Ark , there is a learning and progression curve. Making it that if you first invest in something, you'll make it easier for yourself in the long run.
Not every beach bob is meant to have 100% tame efficiency max lvl rexes from the get go. Instead you tame some low lvl rexes, gather some ingredients, plant some veggies and then you can go and get your nice high lvl pets.
And lets be honest, how hard is it to look up how to make Focal Chili and cook some for the kibble that can tame almost all dinos in Ark.. If someone can't be bothered to look that up (or read the in-game notes on that) then maybe they shouldn't have max lvl tames..
