  1. So I see so much hate for this map and I really dont understand why especially after playing through it on single player Alpha Boss completion and all. The map itself has tons of great loot and it's in my opinion the most beautiful map bar none, the underground world is expansive to say the least only being outsized by Aberration and has alot of beautiful landscapes, the spores the map emits look gorgeous at night and theres countless other landmarks such as the namesake enormous floating island, the ocean gets darker as you go deeper which really isn't something most maps do at least not to the same degree and it adds a feel of realism Outside of the landmarks the artifact caves are pretty fun, maybe not the most complicated but fun nevertheless. But that's all praise and while I think the hate is massively exaggerated I do think there are some issues First and foremost the main complaint from people is traveling due to the ocean, to which I reply with get yourself a Sarco, they are strong battlemounts that move very fast through the water and can be brought into most caves especially if you got a cryopod, Sarcos are godlike on this map and if you have never tamed a Sarco here and you think it's tough to travel then go and get yourself one, they really will help carry you through the map and are very versatile. However the ocean does have another problem that I cant deny and that's the lack of stuff to do in it, other than gathering drops for the higher boss difficulties there isn't much to do, I think the map desperately needed more caves to mix up the variety within the massive ocean, for example Ragnarok has the Pit of Dreen, a Tuso infested trench filled with ship wrecks and a artifact within, it's a great place if you are looking for a challenge and really puts your aquatic tames to the test, if The Center had more stuff like that then I think more pr would lighten up on the map. Finally due to this being the first map this has no unique creatures, which is a shame, I think just like the previous point that more creatures revolving around the ocean would have helped the map alot and without it it has arguably the least amount of creatures of any official ark map. Overall the map based on appearance is 10/10 with beautiful landmarks and a overall jaw dropping tone, the map is also great for resources and anyone who is starting with Ark should start here, start and find yourself a Sarco then you'll be on your way to beating your first map although it does get hindered by the lack of attention to the ocean itself, it has some good landmarks but it needed more reason to explore the expansive dark depths Overall I give this a 8/10, it's really not as bad as many people exaggerate and it is very new player friendly with beautiful scenery and fun caves to go through but the ocean while it had loads of potential just doesn't cut it, it needed a Pit of Dreen equivalent and more stuff to do within it, unique creatures also would have helped give the map more reason to go throughout the oceans other than to get Apex Drops and 1 artifact
  2. So it seems to be the largest map we could possibly get with ALOT of content but there will inevitably be things removed or changed, for the most part they said it will stay the same but I already got my ideas on what's being removed First off I think just like the last 2 maps we will get a new Boss based on one of the creatures added and by process of elimination I think its fairly easy to conclude that we will see something like a Desmodus King The Fjordhawk is a shoulder pet so that's instantly disqualified, the Andrewsarchus just doesn't seem like the type of creature to get a boss variation and the Fenrir while it's the second most likely candidate is still a solid no since Steinbjorn exists and is basically a Fenrir like mini boss but in bear form, so Desmodus Draculae King it is, plus with the huge amount of caves on the map it makes sense to capitalize on the creatures that spawn in those caves This also makes me think that the Titans will definitely be removed, if they stayed they would take away from the spotlight of the boss and considering this is the final boss ever to be added I'm sure they wouldn't want the Titans to steal the Spotlight, maybe they'll keep the general heavy visage of the Titans around the map as statues and the like but definitely no Titan spawns on Fjordur anymore I think the rest of the bosses will definitely stay though, they got custom unique arenas as is but I think they will do away with the artifact in the arena and base it around the trophies of the bosses, they would also bump down the Manticore to be one of those trophies since in the mod you need to collect things from the other bosses for the manticore and instead of the Manticore they'll make it as a trophy collection to summon the Desmodus King, to me that just makes the most sense, it is the final boss to ever be added into ark 1 so why not make it stand out
  3. At least you can start the damn game On ps4 it completely freezes in the menu or when loading so its basically unplayable unless you find joy out of the menu screen
  4. If you mean freezing in the menu to where the game is unplayable then yea they've been fantastic Guess I'll have to wait till fear evolved 4 to actually try the raptoring event
  5. So theres a problem where I can't even get on the game when I play ps4 because it freezes
  6. So theres abit of a problem on ps4 where sometimes the game freezes on the menu And by sometimes I mean anytime I try starting the game Also completely off topic but you guys should work on the procedurally generated maps mode, it would create massive variety that would let everyone have the ability to make their own maps and would keep alot of people around which in turn would only be good for both your team and us as players in the long run. It would keep ALOT of people around if they could: 1.Choose which creatures they wanted or didn't want in the map. (Ex. everyone hates pegos so the option to remove them from our maps would be very nice) 2.Set up their own custom boss fights by choosing which arena and which boss to use (megapithecus broodmother and dragon with their arenas and the manticore but without the arena and maybe the mod arenas as well) and obviously instead of artifacts we could just use trophies used from killing certain creatures such as argentavis claws and etc. 3.And finally if there was a mini map in the generation options menu to show what were changing would help alot since most of the time its guess work. I think we should have access to DLC creatures used in mods such as wyverns and karkinos however I think if players have bought a expansion pack with exclusive creatures (titans or reapers for example) then it should be locked to single player so it doesn't interfere with the expansion packs sales.
  7. And obviously they probably would have struggled to even get a ps4/xbox 1
  8. Honestly all I want is the DodoTitan The day it gets added to ark is the day everyone dies.
  9. I'm personally excited for genesis It's what atlas was supposed to be at least part 1 anyways.
  10. They aren't official so no they won't work
  11. 1.Your acting entitled and immature and the proof is with how your trash talking console players Guess what, I bet PC players would "whine" too if it got delayed for them so don't act like their the problem. As a matter of fact they are as proof by you. Anyone would be upset so don't act like the entire situation revolves around you. 2.Some people are poor and don't have the money and struggle on a daily basis just to get by. So saying "they should stop whining and buy a PC" is pretty damn rude considering you don't know their life and they don't know yours. 3.Even if they did release it early guess what? People would still complain because of bugs so either way there would have been upset people. 4.Guess what they postpone every expansion pack so I don't exactly know why your surprised. And I can understand your son would be reasonably upset but no need to take out your frustration on people who did nothing, whining about it won't fix it.
  12. Honestly I'm not surprised genesis is delayed because every expansion pack always is. Although even if they did decide to release it early people would complain about bugs so either way I guess theres no winning.
  13. What this person said basically.
