  1. Hoo boy, I’m hyped. ARK is a heavily flawed game, yes. I’m not excusing the dev’s poor decisions or inability to fix issues at all, but I’m still hyped. I’m not the most serious player, I mostly use ARK as a way to goof off by myself or with friends. I don’t play Official at all, but I do feel for those that do. I feel bad you guys who work so hard have it so rough what with all the issues Wildcard doesn’t fix. However, I can still enjoy the game for myself. Even if a game doesn’t fit one person’s standards, it can fit someone else’s. So long as I have a few friends and creatures to fool around with I’ll have fun. Doesn’t mean ark is a GOOD game, but I still enjoy it. It’s the same with the new Pokémon games. They probably won’t be the greatest, but I’ll still enjoy them myself. On a less serious note, super hyped for new creatures, especially aquatic ones. They’re the big draw for me, and the fact we’ll probably get extra with part 2 is really exciting.
  2. It’s TECHNICALLY there, there’s just no link on the steam page yet. I found it earlier, I’ll grab ya a link if I can. In the meantime price is 35 US dollars for season pass but nothing on individual DLCs.
  3. Okay, so as far as I can tell this is far from the full extent of content in Genesis. More creatures will probably be revealed in torn dossiers as we get closer to release. Plus, this is the season pass price. Each of the two halves of Genesis will probably be a little bit smaller than a normal DLC, but still come with lots of content, as they’re slightly cheaper than regular DLCs. Genesis as a whole may have DOUBLE the content of a regular DLC for map size and creature diversity. I would suggest waiting to buy to see more of it (I’m doing so meself) but I think the price is really reasonable.
  4. The new patch is brilliant! The ability to pick up structures is nice, though I think it should be changed to a full minute with some utility structures pickupable forever empty storage crates, decorations, maybe fences, etc) The kibble rework will be a lifesaver on Official, but you’ll need to change the recipes so they can be made on any map. After that, I’m pretty happy with this! Looks like it’ll make things a lot less tedious and more enjoyable overall.
  5. Wait, you can actually tame more than one on servers? THAT needs a change. A nerf would be good too but I think it’s a bad idea to globally nerf their stats into the ground for PVE player’s sake (they’d become even more useless) Having a major debuff outside Extinction would be good, as would a general weakness to Element weaponry/Tek creatures (including MEKs)
  6. Ah, RIP. At least you’ve got a workaround in place. Poor console players always get the short end of the stick, it seems.
  7. That would be a decent way to do it. At least we’ve got mods to fix this problem. At least, once the dev kit is out.
  8. They gotta have SOME reasons for you to buy the other DLCs. Although you can apparently get Scorched creature saddles in Orbital Supply Drops, so there’s that. It’s kinda like a teaser for people who go straight to Extinction. As for replacement resources, they’re for people who’ve transferred over so they can still build the engrams they unlocked without needing to transfer to Aberration to gather them.
  9. I’m holding out hope that Extinction is simply testing this kibble rework and it will later go global without needing Extinction resources because it works so much better. We stopped receiving word on the rework while Extinction was in development, so it seems like they’re meant to replace the old kibble.
  10. Taxidermy is a PVE based addition, yes. It’s to add decor or if you have a dino with colors you really like die, just bop it with a taxidermy tool and stick it on a plinth. Cryopods however have enormous PVP use. You can carry dinos around in them much more easily, and if you managed to get inside an enemy base you can just unleash a few dinos to murder all theirs. It’s a great way to store dinos for boss runs more efficiently, because all you need to do is carry them to the warp pad and pop them out. The Titans are clearly PVP based. When asked what they do for PVE, Wildcard said they’re great for clearing space and meat runs. I tested and the Ice Titan doesn’t even gather meat! They’re immensely powerful tanks that can break anything (not sure about TEK) and have huge platform saddles so you could probably use them as a mobile war base. The Desert Titan even has multiple anti-aircraft features. It has a tail slap where it smacks it’s back (presumably to remove any enemies on there) and it can release swarms of birds that you can command to target a particular foe. MEKS are the anti-Titan feature, and they have various addons they can use, including a deplyabke tek shield, rocket launchers, etc. Plus, who doesn’t want to destroy their enemies with a giant mech?
  11. So basically, there’s four new types of kibble which are various tiers of enhanced kibble. You use medium sized eggs to make the first (anky/trike/stego size) large to make the second (allo size) and extra large to make the last (bronto/rex) There’s also a fourth made from special eggs like titanoboa, golden hesperornis, and presumably rockdrake/Wyvern/basilisk eggs as well. If this system completely replaced the original system, with creatures having kibble quality preferences based on their size/value as a tame, it would immensely help reduce the problems with the current system because you only need to farm the eggs of four or so species rather than dozens.

    Gacha Taming

    Supposedly Element Dust is a better means of taming them, try that first. Apparently they’ll eat effectively anything, too, so you might try a mix of items.
  13. So from what I’m reading, there’s a new kibble system in Extinction, and it actually seems like it works pretty well, especially to reduce the size of egg farms. What I’m wondering is, has this new kibble system replaced the old one on all maps, or is it for whatever reason Extinction-exclusive?
  14. Guys, c’mon. It’s a week. It’s not the end of the world. Chill a little! If you get this upset over a video game, might be time to take a break. And for those who used vacation time for this, you should probably reconsider your priorities in life. Why spend vacation time to play a video game you don’t even enjoy playing? I always see these complaint threads and find them so confusing. People whine that they lost their gigas due to an incident, but they talk about how they took sick days and spent all nighters for just a video game. If you genuinely enjoy it, fine. I can sympathize (delays suck) but y’all seriously need to take a few chill pills.
  15. Lindwyrms are terrestrial. This has wings. It is probably classified as a Long, or Chinese dragon. This is reinforced by the presence of fur and other mammalian traits (common in Longs) It does have wyvern-like characteristics however (forearms are wings, while Longs usually have none) However, it shows Titan-like traits (its belly is covered in element, like the Frost Titan) so it’ll probably be called the Sky Titan or something similar.
