  1. Will the radiation increase the chances of getting a mutation when breeding on the map? Will the radiation bring new buffs/debuffs to normal creatures? (Say you bring a Rex to the map and it mutates into a mini Godzilla) Can element be harvested from the nameless?
  2. Dilos not listening.... PS4

    Check whistle command groups. That is very likely the problem. And no, the heart has nothing to do with it. That simply means that they're mate boosted.
  3. Realistic animal DLC

    Nobody knows for certain how Rex preferred getting it's food. It might have been a scavenger, it might have been an ambush hunter, or it might have just been an opportunistic feeder. But I will say that Jack Horner's reasoning behind his assertion that Rex couldn't hunt at all is fundamentally flawed. Let me ask this - which is the best predator between a cheetah and a lion? Well according to Horner if it's not built like a cheetah then it isn't well suited to hunt live prey. In reality though it just depends on the prey and the situation. A cheetah might be better at chasing down something fast and weak like a gazelle, but which one will pose a bigger threat to something beefier such as a buffalo? Obviously in that case the lion is better. Prehistoric predators would have been no different. A Rex wouldn't have been the type of hunter who would engage in a high-speed chase, but that doesn't rule out ambush tactics or just going after slower prey. And, on another note, you all might want to take a step back and think before you continue with the fanboy labeling. As they say, when you point one finger at someone else you're pointing three fingers back at yourself.
  4. Realistic animal DLC

    So acknowledging facts brought to light from the fossil record is the action of an extreme fanboy. And baselessly speculating that Rex is weak and while calling it Overusedosaurus is what you do if you're looking at it rationally and without bias. Gotcha.
  5. For me it has always been about the dinosaurs, not shooting or survival. But I'm still excited for the new dlc simply because it looks cool. If you don't like it you don't need to buy it. It doesn't affect the game's realism though, because frankly the game is not realistic to begin with. The base game has godmode Gigas who are twice the size of a Rex, magical disappearing Liopleurodons, and Unicorns. If you're looking for a nice realistic dinosaur game that doesn't go in other crazy directions I'd recommend giving The Isle a try. I haven't spent much time in that game yet, but when I did play it it did immediately felt a lot more realistic and immersive than Ark.
  6. Overuse of TEK in marketing

    It's part of the game so there's no reason it shouldn't be featured in the trailers. The number of players who can get it on official is irrelevant. Also the whole survival argument is kinda moot anyway because tribes and modern tier already took the survival out of the game anyway before Tek was even a thing. If you want it to have more of a survival feel then play single player and go to Scorched Earth or do some deep sea diving. Primitive, hardcore, or no-tame would help too. Other than that it's more accurate to say that you're playing an MMO with survival elements rather than a true survival game.
  7. Too late. Hence the reason for the new servers.

    If it was doing 200+ damage per hit then either the numbers on the wiki are way off or the Mega is indeed bugged. Even if the Rex had no armor it shouldn't have been doing that much damage. I wonder if the extra damage vs bugs is being applied to all targets? Also are you playing on vanilla damage and resistance settings?
  9. Mammals or Dinosaurs?

    For me the choice will always be dinosaurs, but that's just me. It depends whether you're someone who gets giddy at the thought of anything dinosaur/reptile related, or whether you're someone who is more likely to travel the country attending any furry convention you can find. Also... This right here might be enough to determine which path you should take. I've noticed that there are people who breed Rexes/Gigas because they want to be a badass, but then cry because nothing in the wild poses much of a threat to them. Even though that's what happens when you're an apex predator. It's important to know up front what play style you will enjoy and choose your tames accordingly.

    Hmm, I dunno. They've never seemed like a problem to me, but maybe I've just been lucky up until now. A 120 tamed Rex with saddle armor getting curbstomped by a wild lvl 40 Megatherium is hard to justify. Unless there were some other factors involved that you didn't mention?
  11. PVE Land Hoarding: How much is too much?

    This is why PvE doesn't work without admin support. Like it or not there has to be rules for the greater good. You should either move to unofficial, or bring some Titanosaurs along for a nice friendly chat with the land hoarders.
  12. The Definitive Dino DPS Guide

    With the Allo it's all about the bleed, which this dps chart does not take into account. The Allo is better against opponents who are small and fast, and also against tanky dinos with an extreme health pool. The slow effect will prevent fast opponents from getting away, and the dps from the bleed scales with the opponent's health. The slow effect can also be used for hit-and-run tactics or as a support for other damage-dealing dinosaurs. Basically the Rex is a slow-moving bruiser who wants to stand there trading chomps with his opponent, whereas the Allo is more of a tactical killer who shines most brightly in a team setting.
  13. Elemental Rock state on the game

    It would be one thing if the golem were only good for tanking and nothing else, but that's not the case. It's a tank, it's one of the heaviest hitters in the game, it's a siege weapon, it can be used to harvest pretty much everything, it's amphibious, and to top it all off you can feed it rocks. In other words, it's probably the most versatile jack-of-all-trades in the game while also being one of the most powerful tames in the game. What more could you want? And if you look at the level at which you unlock the saddle you'll see that it's meant to be on par with a Spino or a Theri. I'm almost tempted to say that it's OP, until I remember that you can't breed it. From what I can tell that's pretty much the only thing keeping it in line.
  14. Indominus Rex Anyone?

    They would need to work out a deal with Universal for the rights to it, which is very unlikely
  15. A wall of gigas literally

    That is false sir. What's the typical damage of an OP imprinted boss Rex? 800% melee? If so then that's roughly the same damage as a very poopty 125% melee tamed Giga. Sorry but there's no comparison. Well by that reasoning shouldn't the best wild-tamed Giga be effortlessly destroyed by an imprinted Rex, or really any imprinted battle mount? And how does the challenge of breeding justify the overpowered state of wild Gigas? And what about Mosas? Squids? They're on the same breeding timers as Gigas yet they don't get the massive rewards that the Giga gets. Just saying.
