I don't know a single person in PvE who lived permanently on quetzals in the sky. The flying mechanic with platforms is too glitchy, especially when carrying Dino's.
What really bothers me about all this is you, Jaylt, and the other devs, telling us how we should and shouldn't play. I get that PvP needs balancing. And that's your core experience, that's fine.
But PvP is NOT PvE. There is a REASON I chose PvE over PvP. There's already stuff we can't do, like pick up wild Dino's, so WHY are PvP balances being forced on us pve players?
I play for fun, to breed, I only tame when new stuff comes out, then I breed. The oven servers I played on were communities. We all helped each other. We would trade kibble or fert eggs or stud out our male Dino's. Now, it's almost impossible to do all of that.
We can't fly far from base, it's a chore to help someone out now. And on top of it all, we have you telling us how we should and shouldn't play.
Pve is not PvP. Stop treating us the same. There's no need for all these balances on pve as no one is fighting each other.
All this has done has made a lot of people quit, I'm pretty much stuck in the back of redwoods on the center, and trading and helping has halted. All everyone does now is complain, and I want to tell them to have faith in the devs, but even I am losing faith. If it takes a half hour to fly across the map, I'd rather spend that half hour in another game where I can actually make progress...
And that makes me sad, because a game that inches helped my depression by taking me to a fantasy world is now just stressing me out.
