  1. I don't think thats entirely true. I believe ase xbox player base was more than double pc, and I would be willing to bet ps was right there with it. The info is out there if you want to try and find it, its been awhile since I saw it. but since asa isn't out on all platforms yet nobody really knows which has the larger player base yet, but they were bragging about selling 600k copies on pc, that is not a lot of copies, at all, not even close. I don't know where it stands today, but back when games had to be printed, packaged, and shipped a million copies sold was required for the devs to just break even.
  2. I don't know who you are talking about but I was talkng about /6 and zipper interactive. And I don't think you get why people are mad, its not about the waiting so much as it is about the consistent lying wildcard is so famous for doing. If they would stop lying, hiding the facts, and just plain making up things, 3/4 of the hate would be non existent. Now sprinkle on the fact they pretend to be transparent and have the nerve to think most people are dumb enough to believe them and you have yourself a developer that deserves every inch of hate thrown their way.
  3. I have never had any issues with framerate drops on the ps5 except in the boss fight on genesis, there I had the frame rate drop down to 2-3 fps, it was completely unplayable with more than one person and any amount of dinos. I had to do it solo just to get through it. As far as the UI goes, back when ark was only a year or 2 old the UI was much better, they screwed that up with a patch and "were going to address it in another patch" but never did.
  4. Ark 2 in a console launch exclusive. That means it will launch on one platform first and then on the others a few months later. Ark was also a console launch exclusive. Although thats just how they worded it, they might be lying about that as well. Its hard to say with wildcard.
  5. Have YOU ever thought people are becoming toxic (and I hate that word btw) because they continue to lie their way through life? How about if they just told the truth? People get mad because they knowingly give out false information. They knew the game wasn't going to release on all platforms at once in october but they continued to say everything was just fine right up until the last minute. They knew there wasn't going to be a release for xbox this week last week but still they pretended there was going to be up until the last possible minute. And they know the game isn't going to release in november but they will continue to lie about it right up until the final minutes of the month. They also know the game isn't going to release in Q1 2024 but that will be their next announcement. Delaying telling the truth does not take away from the fallout that is going to come, it just intensifies it. Now hear me out, this might sound like a crazy idea, but how about theu just tell the truth? Sounds crazy right? How about instead of saying "hey everything is on track! get ready for next week! its going to be great!" How about they say, "well, we sent the game to sony cert this week but it still has quite a few issues and its a crap shoot on if it passes or not. We tried to get it ready but ran into issues with this thing and that thing and some other thing and we are trying to get those issues sorted out now." Wildcard was a community manager, where is this so called community manager? Their job is to interact with the player base and give actual information, where is this information? where is this interaction? Why hasn't this manager been fired and replaced with a competent person? I have seen your argument before, the whole they are quet because the community is toxic line. Well guess what? Its wrong, I have seen devs with actually community managers instead of paycheck collectors like wildcard currently has and they had a much better time at it. when the devs don't purposely lie and the managers actually do their job, things work out much better for everyone. I have seen it happen, its not a guess.
  6. Most other game devs don't seem to have this problem. Why do you think this is? They can somehow manage to set release dates months and months in advance and still hit them, wildcard can't even come close in a year. Whay do you suppose that is? And how are they not to blame?
  7. I have heard directly from other devs the playstation cert is pretty tough. But think about the buggy games that are on the playstation that have cleared cert, imagine if they had the same standards as other platforms, I mean you can take a 3 week old dog turd, heat it up in the microwave and put it on steam for sale and they are happy to have it. But at the end of the day, the delays do not fall on the platforms, they fall on the developers. They are the ones that are not good at their jobs and they are the ones trying to get a luke warm dog turd to pass cert knowing there is zero chance of that happening but still telling everyone "everything is on track and next week is going to be hot"
  8. But at the end of 3 months they would just delay it and launch it broken 6 weeks later.
  9. If I never played the game or dealt with wildcard? Yes absolutely it would stop me from buying it. Terrible reviews do not help sell products. There are countless times I read up on a company before buying their product and ended up going somewhere else because of bad reviews or negative comments about the company.
  10. I for the life of me cannot understand why all the developers are so interested in this cross play crap. stop wasting time on cross play, nobody wants to play with cheaters.
  11. They have standards. If the game isn't up to their standards it gets rejected.
  12. You have to understand this is called "development". when "launch" comes, the development stage is supposed to be over, not in the middle somewhere. You see, all games go through these stages, the difference is, when most other companies get to the "launch" stage, they launch the game, and its either done or requires a day one patch. They don't release it and then start really working on it. It all boils down to pure incompetence.
  13. Do it the old fashioned way. Get a Quetzal, build a truck bed on its back and haul animals around that way. Or fly to where you want to be, build a small outpost, tame something to do the job you want to do, and walk back. Not having cryopods is one of the better decisions they made with this game. When they make the game to easy it takes the fun out of it. I like having to work for it. Thats why I don't like the fact they took wiring and pipes out of the game.
  14. I think this is such a cheesy downgrade. I hate it when developers dumb games down.
  15. I expect the price to go up to make up for the lack of customers. I don't see them getting half the business they got with evolved at these prices.
  16. Nothing, its free. They used to have this thing called "beta testing" They would let a few thousand people play the game months before release and then have a good idea of what needs fixing and then fix it before the release date. Now they use the term beta test as a preorder bonus. Basically a glorified demo that serves no purpose other than getting people to spend their money. Seems beta testing and release dates are a thing of the past..
  17. Admitting the issues? Transparency? Really? You want to know what transparency would have been? How about not lying to everyone about the game releasing in october? They knew from the start the game was never going to launch to pc and console in october even though they strait up said otherwise. They knew there was no chance of it releasing by then, and they also knew about the loophole in the contract that would get them out of losing tons of money. That is why they never gave a solid date and instead just gave a time frame. Have you seen all the issues people are having playing right now? Do you honestly think they didn't know about these issues when they sent it for certification? They knew for a fact it was going to fail cert, that whole process was just a big show they were putting on. They think like politicians, say whatever you have to to make people happy now and then ignore them and pretend everything it perfect when the truth comes out. Kick the can down the road, deal with the fallout later. That is how they have been from day one. So originally they said this game would release in August, then pushed it to October, now its November. The next few weeks we will get a lot of "transparency" from them about how much progress they are making and how things are on track and doing great but without ever giving a release date, they wont make a peep about the date all the way until the end of November, then they come out and say they need more time to make the game perfect and bla bla bla and say Q1 2024! Then you wont hear much until may or june, then they will finally give a release date sometime in late june. Will they hit that date? probably not. You know how I know all this? Because its the past repeating itself and because they already know this is how its going to go, they just are not going to say it until they have to because they are super "transparent" and all... Now, would you like to talk about this super deal they struck with nitrado? The one they kept going on about how great it was? Only it was only great for them. We are getting screwed over in that deal. sell the rights to one company, create a monopoly, make some quick cash, and we get bilked out of more money, unless you think tripling the price to us is fair?
  18. They used that same excuse before. But is it really necessary to triple the cost? 33 bucks a month is really steep, but thats how monopolies work I guess...
  19. Either you are on the wrong forums and don't realize you are talking about wildcard, or you work for wildcard....or want to? Because none of that made any sense unless its opposite day or something.
  20. you wont be seeing ark 2 anytime soon. maybe 2-3 years from now at best.
  21. I dont see it hitting consoles until at the earliest spring, and thats a reach, I think june/July is a little more realistic. Just take a look at their track record and you can get a pretty decent idea when the game will actually come out.
