  1. Trolling looks bad, which is exactly what you're doing.
  2. You have proven you can say silly things without backing up your previous comment about why this map is for PvE. Either bring something constructive to this or better yet, say nothing at all. Anything else looks bad not only on you, but since you're a volunteer moderator, also on Wildcard as a company.
  3. Yes, you have proven that. What you have not proven is how this map is made for PvE.
  4. Saying that Genesis is geared for PvE is like saying your car runs fine without oil in the engine.
  5. Eviga has it right. These are the reasons the map is a failure. The restrictions imposed to force us to rely mostly on the items/creatures Genesis provides and not being able to use a lot of the tames and items from previous maps. Not the difficulty, that's expected although being at around 10% health by the time you can take your first step is simply too much. You should at the very least have a chance to survive the initial spawn.
  6. The new creatures seem like they are interesting but have only tamed a Megachelon so far and haven't tried building on it yet. The map is broken up into 5 seperate biomes and the only way to move between them is by using HLNA's teleport options. While it brings any nearby tribemembers and tames with you and you can choose between N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, and NW in each biome it takes about as long to activate as the teleports that take you to the boss fights on the island. You can't use flying mounts, just says they're disabled but hopefully that's just a bug and not intended behavior as even the argentavis and pterondon that spawn on the map can't be flown. What is not a bug however is the tek suit, All of it except the helmet's vision modes and oxygen underwater and what seems to be a nerfed tek suit run are disabled It feels like Wildcard's trying to force us to discard what we've relied upon in previous maps and only use what's provided in Genesis.
  7. The price is so high because it's a season pass including 2 maps in total, Genesis and a future one scheduled for the end of the year (Winter 2020).
  8. The map itself is too restrictive compared to other maps. Not being able to ride a dino between the biomes like previous maps is a fail. Trying to use HLN-A can be a nightmare as it tends to just zip away most of the time you attempt to interact wih it. Not being able to use flying mounts on an open map is a fail unless it is a bug or locked behind progression. It just doesn't make sense other then function as a brake on the rate at which people can obtain resources. The only thing working on the tek suit is the helmet's vision modes and air, but nothing else? A big, fat, fail. Imposing restrictions rather then building the map to take already existing methods into account is always going to be a fail, regardless of game. This has already been proven plenty of times in the past, just google it, no need to repost it all here. You'd need a library for that much information, not a thread in a forum. I started a new character in the bog biome and by the time the initial white screen went away and i could see the enviorment my character was pretty much dead, at around 10% health from deadly gas and the infernal insect swarms that are literally everywhere you go. They need to be toned down. You kill one swarm and 3 will take its place in seconds. It also rains 99% of the time and the fog's so thick you can barely see a thing. A real bog doesn't have near-constant rain. All the effects are causing a lot of lag on a standard PS4 without a solid state drive. Of course i could install a solid state drive but if the game won't work smoothly on the hardware that the console came with then it just simply wasn't designed right and needs to be tweaked, end of story. While mounted the game pauses between 2 - 5 seconds every 50 or so feet traveled. Hopefully this will get optimized over time. So far i have checked out the bog, snow, and ocean biomes and the only place i would even think of building is on the back of a Megachelon and i doubt i'll find much of anything in the volcanic or lunar biomes where i would want to build. Base building is a big part of this game after all yet Genesis clearly wasn't designed with that in mind but instead made to fit only a portion of the playerbase of the game, mostly people who prefer to play PvP but i'm tired of constantly running into people who can't PvP without using glitches, and then calling you trash, in pretty much any game, not just ARK, so i don't play PvP anymore unless it's with friends who i know will play legit. For PvE this map is lacking, a lot. Sure, there are missions to do but i haven't tried any of them yet so can't comment on them. What i have read from other peoples comments on them i don't even know if i want to.
  9. Do you think Wildcard's alone in delaying their work? Even more then once. It actually happens quite frequently in the gaming business. Be glad it's only getting delayed a total of 2 months or so. Naughty Dog's Last of Us II recently got delayed from the end of February to the end of May, an extra 3 months even though they announced the February release date before Wildcard even announced Genesis. Expect it to happen.
  10. As others have mentioned the reason the tether is there is due to the limited resources (processing power, memory, and limitations on how fast your hard drive or solid state drive can load) the consoles have. Yes, they could put in an option to adjust the length but to be honest the tether is more likely then not already optimized. Stretching the tether further would require more memory and would put a much greater load on your consoles processor and storage media. If your console starts to run out of memory your game will crash, if it overloads the processor and/or storage media everything will start to run really sluggish. It'd take much, much longer to load bases or new terrain as you get closer to it assuming the game doesn't crash from the strain or worse yet, causes so much heat output so as to damage your console at which point you'd need to buy a new one. Long story short: Sorry, it can't be done. The tether is there to keep your console alive and healthy.
  11. With only 2 weeks left of january we'll either get an official release date within the week or be told it'll be delayed again. With how quiet they've been i'm leaning towards another delay.
