  1. That's the most valid and compelling reason I've seen to tame one so far. XD Still, I'm not one for apes/monkeys. I don't think I've ever tamed a Mesopithecus or a Gigantopithecus. I've always liked reptiles and birds a ton, so the "typical" dinosaur fare is way more up my alley. Stuff like Microraptors (even though I play PvE), Therizinosaurs, Raptors, Thylas, etc. I honestly can't wait to tame an Amargasaurus! Either way, glad for those who got what they wanted out of the vote; I hope WildCard does more player involvement like this in the future.
  2. I've been seeing Party Dodos, and the cooking pot has been showing the skins/recipes for event items and chibis. I believe the anniversary event is currently active. If it's not working in a single player save or an unofficial server, there is a command to start it up, I believe, although I've never had to use it. I do know, however, that the command only works when the relevant files have been pushed to consoles/clients. Those files aren't left live all the time because they'd bog down consoles and PCs over time, or somesuch.
  3. That is true, and also a fair argument. That's also the precise logic that had me using the word "reluctantly" in my original comment. But I agree with you.
  4. So many folks getting caught up on the specifics of draconic terms and species. I'm as much a fan of dragons as the next person, but we must remember they are fantasy creatures. If I may wax encyclopedic, though...: "Wyrm" is a term that is often used to refer to any draconic creature. Even a full-on dragon could be referred to as a "wyrm" if one were to speak in a general enough manner. (Kind of like saying "man" or "mankind" to refer to the human race as a whole.) As for the term "wyrm" referring specifically to a two-legged serpent, you're half right. A two-legged serpent is specifically
  5. That pixel art is awesome. If greyjan#9071 happens by, your art rocks!
  6. As contentious and toxic as some of the Ark player-base can be, you always keep up the kindness. It is my hope as well, Studio WildCard, that you folks experience lots of good health, happiness, and restful snacking! Please take care of yourselves, too. To my fellow Ark players: Please have a wonderful holiday season and stay safe!
  7. I'm excited to learn more about Rockwell! My biggest question is "what is he at this point?" He was clearly still a biological being in Abb, then a digital one in Gen. 1. Now, though? Has he spanned both those planes? And more to the images of the ship: What *did* bring us to this point? My initial assumption was that Earth was simply too far gone for us to repopulate and reclaim, but maybe there's something else at work here? I'm honestly pretty stoked for Gen. 2.
  8. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit stoked for the Stego TLC. I have a buddy who uses them for base defense, but I could never get into them. With this utility update and visual update, I may have to start taming some! They look amazing in that preview image, by the way!
  9. Everyone saying that this is a BS excuse... please try to exercise a modicum of empathy. Heck, even sympathy would be a breath of fresh air. I understand the frustration with yet another delay, but that's no reason to belittle the reason that Wildcard says they're holding off. Whether they're telling the truth or not, other game companies are doing the same thing, and the situation really does call for it. On top of that, COVID is still a thing. I would not be surprised if many WC employees/developers are working from home right now. Does that excuse them not planning ahead better? Maybe (d
  10. I initially thought it might be a harness for multiple creatures, but now I'm not so sure. Someone else suggested a saddle for a multi-headed creature, which sounds awesome! I guess we'll find out!
  11. Loving the contributions from the community! Postosuchus is one of my favorites, and that dossier is awesome, @Djaymasi!
  12. It's nice to see IsisMasshiro's art here! I've always enjoyed their content on DeviantArt, and it's wonderful to see it recognized by WC!
  13. I won't lie. The quality of the models and animations for the Titans is pretty high. I love the walk cycle for the Forest Titan. That little bob that emphasizes it weight as its foot hits the ground... that's pretty good.
  14. I agree, it looks like a ton of fun. I'm excited to get my hands on a scout bot! On the other hand, I apologize if I came off as especially rude or antagonistic. I don't mean to say that WildCard is perfect. Indeed, I have issue with a few game mechanics myself. (Basi can resist squid-grab and jellyfish, but Mosa can't? Eh.) But I'm also not the sort of person to nitpick incessantly at something for its flaws. (Prime example: I nitpick at Bungie for all of Destiny's wasted potential. I still love to play Destiny with friends, and I still thin Bungie is a good game developer overall.)
  15. I was thinking the same thing. (Not to mention the fact that folks also complain about things being delayed. I'd rather see a longer wait time and get the DLC on the projected date, to be honest.)
  16. I have a question or two regarding the Super Fan Edition ARK box: Has the dossier book been updated to really include all the critters found in ARK? When I looked through the one my friend had, it was missing the Otter and all the critters from Scorched Earth and Ragnarok. It was also missing the Aberration creatures, due to Aberration not having been released yet. I was also curious as to whether the dossier book includes the updated dossiers for the TLC critters?
  17. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I'm always excited to see things from the "what's next" category. My favorite Crunches include notes on game improvements. I loved the TLC posts, and anything with a Mysterious Mysteries in it. Here's hoping they start announcing that stuff in the streams.
  18. I wasn't sure if you were responding to me, @BobXan, but I was referring to this bullet point, which WC has noted as an exploit: I understand that boxing in other people's dinos is a trashy thing to do. I generally try to be polite when playing online anyway, so it's not really something I'd attempt. (I'd honestly rather make friends than make enemies.)
  19. I mostly play SP and sometimes private games, but I was absolutely not aware that "boxing" your platform dinos was an exploit. I figured that was just a mechanic used for protection during wars/raids, and even for certain tames. Duly noted for if/when I ever play Official. O_O
  20. I love the Spino, and it looks like these new changes will bring him back up to my favorite!
  21. Glad to know these aren't the only legacy critters getting an overhaul; they look phenomenal! Here's to hoping the Spino makes the list; your artists are gonna work wonders on the feet!
  22. I don't play PvP myself, since I spent about 15 minutes in an Official PvP server and saw the nonsense wherein people place down foundations to prevent resources from respawning. That said, I understand that I don't have a lot of room to offer my opinion on PvP gameplay. However.... The way the majority of the comments in this thread are composed, one would think that PvP is the only gamemode included in the game. (There's absolutely nothing wrong with people wanting to play PvE or roleplay, as long as they keep those things in their proper areas and don't force it on other players.) One
  23. I'm super stoked for the cross-platform gameplay between PC and Xbox One! I hope to build a PC that can host an Xbox One server cluster, and this means that those of my friends who play on PC will still be able to join in on the fun! Woop woop! \o/
  24. I first saw ARK on Steam and was sorely disappointed that my computer wasn't beefy enough to run it. (I could barely play The Forest!) So I resigned myself to watching trailers and gameplay on Youtube. Then one day I turned on my Xbox to find that ARK was available there, too! I immediately purchased the alpha version and began playing. Within an hour, I knew it was more than worth the $35 I paid. And it's only gotten better! (Granted, I tend to play single player and non-official dedi servers, but still.) I then purchased a refurbished console and started up my own dedicated server
