So far I pretty much hate the new kibble. Running beta full time on 3 clustered servers with somewhat active community and no one seems to like it. I didn't come into this hating it, I just think the implementation is not even well though enough for beta yet, but that's just me.
Biggest suggestion off the top of my head right now would be simply use Prime Jerky and Cooked Mutton rather than Focal Chili and Lazarus Chowder.
I understand the reasoning for this is 1 simplify and make the game more accessible. Noble and good, love it in theory, but as all the comments and errata in this thread show it has made things both more complicated and left a ton of gaps and imbalances, seems like it took work think up ways to complicate things. Number 2, to prevent people from cluttering up servers with tons of needless dinos, which clearly this has failed to do.
Lastly, resource management is a way bigger concern for most people than any of this and from what I am hearing, people do not like filling up their cooker which already has too few slots for how huge it is. Why make people use a ton of easy to get resources by doubling the berries... it ONLY serves to piss people off by over filling slots and creating resource management bottlenecks. That is the only reason it "appears" to add a difficulty level and complexity to this, not because its actually hard to get the resource. If Wildcard is looking to make people "need" more cookers, fine, but there has to be a better way without mindless berry resource management.
