  1. Not to sound crude but what kind of stupid logic is that? They don’t have a problem adding in 20 different animals that turn into lawn ornaments and are completely useless for anything other than a garden gnome. There’s a ton of things they could have added from S+ that would be a benefit and would not render some aspects useless. The flipable sloped walls? Adding snap points to sloped ceilings? Large pillars like large walls? I’m just saying they could have added much more from the S+ mod without rendering certain aspects of the game useless, sorry that is probably one of the biggest BS excuse to come from studio WC.
  2. I know it’s been a couple weeks since the last post but I have to side with making the game stable with even a 90% efficiency in regards to performance, minor bugs and just overall solid stability. New content is great but it doesn’t help when it’s stacked on top of a game that in a lot of aspects is broken at it’s core. I also have played this game since early access and have experienced many “DILO” moments in playing this game. I too will give Wildcard credit, they have come a loooonnngggg way since I first picked up the controller and spawned on the beach for the first time, BUT there was also a tipping point where the game was actually quite stable after the center came out . The change must have happened when I too took a break from the game for about 3 months and logged back in started playing and noticed all the things that were just messed up. Now in regards to the comment that correlates to purchasing the dev kit if we could do a better job, there has been people who have and typical WC, they screw it up! The center was a perfect example of what 1 guy could do and it made the development team at WC look like clowns. Probably one of the reasons the center is my favorite map because the guy that designed that handed them a perfectly stable FINISHED product, all they had to do was insert the map into the game. I don’t know what the magic bullet is for WC to fix the game. Yes I said fix the game, and yes it is a broad and vague statement because there are sooo many things broken in the game from little annoyances to the big game breakers. It’s a broad range of problems with the game as a whole that build up and build on the frustration of the player base. And yes it mainly revolves around officials because we are pretty much stuck with what we’re given. What we’re given sometimes feels like ordering king crab legs and getting grocery store imitation crab meat, but paying for the king crab. Ow I haven’t figured it up to get an accurate figure. But if someone where to buy the base game AND the genesis season pass AND all the other paid maps, if I’m not mistaken, will set ya back about $150-$200 bucks. That’s fairly steep for a game that does still run like it’s early access still. All games have problems and there is no magical bullet to fix ALL the bugs in a game, especially nowadays where video games are so much more intricate and complex than what they were even just 10 years ago. COD had issues, but 98% of them weren’t game breaking. GTA also has issues, but 98% are not game breaking. Now guided Activision and rockstar are much bigger conglomerates than Wildcard so the capital is more available to ensure stable polished content updates, but I’m a firm believer that Wildcard is more than capable of delivering a polished product to us the consumers. I’m no programmer or developer and to be honest I couldn’t tell you the first step in coding or development of a game such as this, but I do know when something isn’t right. This has gone on forever but my honest opinion is that either the developers are just money hungry people who put out shotty work and have the attitude of “well we got your money so nah nah nah nah”, or they really are so deep over their heads in things to be fixed that they just are doing the bare minimum to get them through. New content isn’t the answer either, and testing COMPLETELY and BEFORE launch time and letting the community test WC’s screw-ups would definitely be in order. I’m gonna finish with this analogy......You don’t put ported &polished dart 202 heads on top of a 350 v8 that took every bearing in the motor block get torn out and expect it to run a 10s 1/4 mile!
  3. My vote for tic is quetz, giga, mammoth, meglodon and mosa. And for the love of all things holy.......ADD SOME LIMITED MOVEMENT SPEED TO THE QUETZ!!!! Make one of the largest flyers USABLE AGAIN!!! 200% movement cap is more than fair!
  4. The new dlc looks cool, and kinda hyped for tlc 3, but for crying out loud summer is only 3 months away, what about all the other issues in the game? Genesis just came out and broke the game just like every other dlc that has come out in recent years and then after a year of patches, nerfs and bug fixes it’s finally somewhat playable. How bad is the magmasaur and bloodstalker going to get nerfed because of pvp abuses? Where did QOL go? Or can console get the rest of the structures plus mod? Instead of the half that we got in the homestead update. I mean something is better than nothing but it would have been nice to get all of it. I’m sure there’s many others that have my same concerns. Genesis is barely a week old and I have talked to people in my servers that regret paying for it. Yes new content is always fun to get just like the events that you (Wildcard) is gracious enough to give us and we all appreciate that, thank you! On the flip side it’s nice to be able to log in and play the game we all love and have put hundreds of not thousands of hours into throughout the years, without having to fight the bugs, and patches and semi-broken mechanics. Not mentioning falling in love with a certain mount and use it as our “go to” animal for just about anything and then it gets nerfed into the dirt because of some tools wanna just mess with people just because they can. It’s pretty sad when I pull up the community crunch and see MORE content being added and my first thought is “here we frickin go again! I worked with a deaf guy that listened better than you guys do!!!”......just my opinion but it’s pretty close to how a lot of my friends feel on the servers we play on.
  5. Man classic WC, talk a big game and postpone a dlc by a month and the game still breaks. Servers not showing up in the list, windows 10 not downloading. And any response from Wildcard....*crickets*. I’m glad I didn’t go blow my money on the genesis dlc. I haven’t been able to log into my normal server so god only knows what’s been broken in there or if I even have anything left to log in to. I knew this poop would happen just like most others. I saw people asking for a refund earlier, hate to say it but that’s what happens when ya buy into WC’s bull hook, line and sinker without remembering that this is the same company that built probably one of the best games anyone could think of and then send it straight to hell in a hand basket. God I hope this gets fixed before the weekend because we all know that they don’t fix anything on the weekends. Just remember that there’s still a lot of people who didn’t want anything to do with genesis just because we know the complete cluster screw up WC can create with this sort of stuff.
  6. Well it’s refreshing to see a community crunch that has some meat and taters instead of “hey here’s new content we’re gonna release OP and then nerf to borderline useless when people use it to be toolbags”. Now guided there’s always people out there that are gonna cheat, lie and abuse others to get ahead of everyone else, and those problems seem to be more evident on PvP rather than PvE. The issues between the 2 just strengthens the argument to separate the game modes with their own specific balances. After the patch on Friday and S+ being broken all weekend, I agree that there should be no updates on Fridays anymore. That’s happened in the past and pissed A LOT of players off because of structures, dinos and progress that we worked so hard to accomplish over the weekend was just for nought. @Cedric, it’s good to see more communication coming from you in regards to things happening. As far as genesis, there’s a mountain of other problems that need addressing before genesis launches. Extinction is just flat out broken, there’s problems with the center, valguero just seems to be a storage facility and eggs. Ya can’t transfer ice wyverns out higher than lvl 95, and the spawns are messed up on ragnarok, and there’s a full laundry list of issues on the other maps that need some serious attention. The island is 5 years old.....it could REALLY use a face lift. Now that it seems and appears that you guys are cracking down the cheaters and focusing more on QOL, which is a LOOOONNNGGGG time coming, can we get transfer timers dropped in PVE? For those of us who play the game for what it is and follow the rules it is such a pain in the butt. Also could we get a limit to movement speed added back to the flyers (ptera, argy, tape and quetz)? Now I’m not calling for complete removal I’m just asking for a MS stat limit. Thank you for the updates though Cedric! It would be awesome if we have more like that! It’s about time! Please keep us all informed! Best of luck in the coming New Year!
  7. Yup this sounds all too familiar. Perfect example of WC dropping the ball. This is kind of a big “oops”, I dunno if the patch was tested before release but it definitely looks like it wasn’t. I know there’s some unforeseen things that happen with patches but this one should have popped right out if it had been tested.
  8. Well if the Win10 folks are having some issues not able to log with the unintended “to early” QOL update I just can’t WAIT to see what it does to console right at the start of a holiday event *facepalm*. I’m not even gonna mention the mysterious mystery, other than the ONLY mysterious mystery is how WC has been able to screw up SOMETHING every step of this game. They said themselves during the extra life stream that they introduce something and it’s used for something they never thought of during development, depending on the game mode or has unintended or “unforeseen” problems. Then they find out whatever dino or structure is being used for and they either decide to nerf the crap out of it or just to render it completely useless. The whole reason for pillars on pve was for server playability. And I don’t care who calls BS on it, that shows they haven’t played a server with no pillars and seen the junk and the crap bases pop up every where to the point that you can’t even do a meat run to feed your dinos! Let alone try to raise anything! Or tame anything! The server populations say the limit is 70, but the servers (especially console servers) can’t handle a 70 person population especially if there’s only 2-4 people in each tribe. Without the management of the people that play on those servers the game wouldn’t be fun AT ALL. I agree the cryo sickness is annoying but when I raise I throw everything out and what I found is my dinos still ate off the trough even while cryo sick. I watched them and they still picked their heads up with the eating mechanic. I checked their inventory and their food and health were still increasing even though unconscious. Either way to me that’s not a concern for PVE, PVP completely understandable why it’s there. Yes another annoying thing that’s instituted for PVP that makes NO SENSE AT ALL for PVE. I’m more curious to now that the d-bags that dupe and cheat to hide the fact that they can’t play the game right are being handled, could we get transfer timers dropped? There really are good people who have no interest in cheating and enjoy the game. There’s always someone out there who tries to cheat their way through life but don’t tell me there’s not a coding line you can put in there that recognizes it and automatically locks the account for say 3 days for investigation. @Wildcard, look just about everyone understands that this game will never be perfect and there’s always things that need fixing. A little bug in the game or the occasional crash, comes with the territory of a game that is this complex, but if you guys took the time and either postponed genesis even longer to work on the core game to make it rock solid as possible or bring in a full team that works solely on the balances and stability of the game you would probably find that the crunches wouldn’t be full of complaints. It’s VERY difficult to get hyped up about new content when we can’t log in, crash just flying across the map etc. The scenarios are endless. If ya also just logged in to a random server and played for a few days, just like the rest of us, you would see exactly what everyone is talking about and how frustrating it is. Then imagine many months or years of that, then you would understand why a lot of people have a sour taste in their mouths. I know it would piss A LOT of people off if you pushed back genesis even farther but if ya did it to stabilize the game as a whole, to me that’s a fair trade off. You would make JUST as many people if not more people happy if you did that as you would ticking people off. It would pay off 10 fold in the long run. Work on QOL (includes cheaters, balances, stability and so on), that’s more important to probably most of the player base.
  9. I agree with every one of you! As a pre-release player and pretty consistent player for the last 4 years on console, I have never seen this many issues logging into ANY game including this one until now. There have been times where logging in has been a challenge but it has never been to the point of logging in and having my base spot full of rocks and trees like nothing is there and 1/2-3/4s of the base missing. And for it to go on for -4 days now is just absurdity. People are getting pissed! A rollback might not be a good answer depending on what players were doing and what they accomplished but a definite extension of the turkey trials I would think would be a must!!!! All these issues that WC is having just within the last year tells me that they don’t have a team that plays this game to ensure stability and just being able to log into the game..........oh wait yes they do ITS US! We just don’t get listened to and get updates on what they’re doing OR even a warning about a possible issue from a new patch. We used to, a lllllllllllloooooooooonnnnnnggggggg time ago. Now they keep pushing genesis, hey WC what’s the point of a new expansion of the game when all the other expansions, or better yet, core game components are broken, and keep getting broken? Rockstar doesn’t do this with GTA or Red Dead Redemption. I haven’t played fortnite or warframe but i’m pretty sure I have never heard people who I play ark with complain about those games in this matter. Couple simple ideas that live by (this one doesn’t apply here but oh well), “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and “ya won’t get $100k for a 67 Corvette that doesn’t run”. My idea is postpone Genesis for even longer, the rest of the game stable enough to handle it. What that in-tales I have no idea, I don’t have any understanding of coding, nor do I care to. Actually follow through on the QOL you guys brought up months ago, keep us informed and updated as far as the happenings behind the scenes. If there’s things that you guys are having trouble with say so and with a work around so we can still get on and enjoy the game without the aggravation of us loosing or bases and dinos. You guys have developed a helluva modding following as of late, throw ideas out to the modders or ask for their help to fix stuff. I can go on and on, this post is long enough. Wildcard, 90% of the attitude filled responses you receive on the forums and community crunch and in general, wouldn’t be there if you’d just kept us in the loop on a lot of things.
  10. No it’s not my internet especially when I have 10 people on the server I play on at any given time have the same problem. Number 2, NO S*** SHERLOCK! Yeah there is an epilepsy warning on every game, but that doesn’t mean that something broken shouldn’t be fixed as a QOL, and if i’m In the green on area on center (along with the rest of my server and I’m sure tons of other center servers) it’s annoying after a while I can’t accomplish what I need to accomplish and with the logging in issues? Yeah right take me at least 1/2 the day to get back in. Ya know the Pegasus wouldn’t be a bad addition to the game they’ve made worst additions (the diplo is at the top of the list).
  11. I can get behind most of that for sure. The level cap/delete option sucks! My cousin had a ninja kitty (thyla) on legacy that he wanted to use for cave runs that had the unfortunate circumstance of being subjected to this. He was leveling it for the cave runs and he was in the hatchery feeding babies, working on the building and overall trying to do 5 different things at one time (just like every other ark player out there), wasn’t thinking, forgot about the 450 cap and put that last level in it (it was a 449 btw), finished up the base stuff went to bed woke up the next morning and gone it was. He was MAD! He didn’t log back into ark for a week. My point being that we’re all human and some of us don’t have the gracious endowment of not making a mistake. The seatbelt idea is a 2 sided coin idea. Oh god how many times I have gotten dashboarded while flying and doing every short of selling my soul to the devil to hope I was still alive and able to get my bird back. It always happened when I was one a mission to tame something or going to get the flyer that was left in the air after dashboarding before that. These wouldn’t be necessarily taking the grind out of the game but it would definitely tame the cluster known as ARK Law, Murphy’s law is bad enough but even that doesn’t hold a candle to ARK Law. People play the the different game modes for a reason, and it really isn’t fair to pve players and pvp players alike how the changes enacted for one mode exclusively and has lasting negative affects on other mode when the reason for implementation doesn’t pertain to how the alternate mode is played, and in reality makes the opposite mode less fun.
  12. As a pve player I completely agree with this!!!! There are a metric s**t ton of changes, nerfs, balances and patches that have been instituted for pvp that are just completely absurd to be instituted into pve. Turrets/PSX on platform saddles was the first. Now that was over 3 years ago but that’s where it ALL started! Now pvp mode, I completely understand why that would be changed, but for pve? Anyone that says it should’ve been banned for both needs to go change their medication. We used “battle” animals for taming and added base defense. That’s just one example, and in regards to “it’s a lot of work”, yeah I’m sure it probably is but that’s the only way you’d be able to keep the different game modes from screwing the other one over. Besides you guys built an entire dinosaur survival game from the ground up to become what it is and ya can’t handle making 2 separate rules to match 2 COMPLETELY different play modes?? We can’t pick up wild animals in pve, but pvp can. Pve is where that would be super handy for taming. Yeah it would be used in a malicious way but that’s how people are. There’s always someone out there that just wants to mess with people for no reason. The flyer nerf was a complete kick in the nuggets for those of us on pve, and anyone that says it was a good thing needs their head examined. Again there’s always some jack wagon who is going to abuse it, but for the majority of the pve players it rendered just about every flyer other than wyverns and argys about useless. A VAST majority of pve players were down right ticked over that, and used the pre-nerf flyers with leveled movements for legitimate reasons and not for causing problems. Nerfing the ever loving god out of end game animals never made sense for pve. To reply to whoever said that tamed gigas can’t kill wilds, not true it can be done, I’ve seen it with my own eyes but it is definitely a very intense and scary fight. With a good leveled giga and a MC or ASC saddle it can be done. I will admit that pve has the potential to get some very OP monsters for dinos with significant breeding involved but probably 95% of the time those animals are used for defense or special fights (giga v titanosaur or t giga v w giga). The gachas nerf sounds A LOT like the fishing “nerf” they pulled a couple years ago. Fishing was actually a ton of fun before the “change”, now most people don’t even mess with it because they know it’s not worth it. I can go on and on with all the points to strengthen the debate of splitting pve and pvp game modes and having separate sets of rules for modes that are literally day and night differences from each other. If there was a poll of how much of the community in both modes want this separated WC would have no choice but to do it. Maybe someday it’ll happen.
  13. Well the mysterious item, is the mining drill. C’mon man! To quote Cedric, if you guys are just going to run through the same stuff ya unveiled during the extra life stream it’s not really a mystery is it? As far as the patch notes eh there’s a few good things in there. Picking up all items in a range would be handy. As well as limiting the number of items ya drop. I mostly play on the center official and I would LOVE to see the lightning fixed in the snow biomes and green ob area. Man that would be a nice QOL. Every time it storms the lightning keeps up when it quits and then just compounds with every storm after that until it’s a constant lightning flash reflecting off the snow and sky. I’m glad I don’t have epilepsy because wow that would really mess up some people. In order to fix it I have to relog, and wash rinse repeat when it starts storming again. Other than that it’s nice to see that you guys are really taking care of the crashing issues. It is definitely 100x better than what was during pre-release, that was brutal, so thank you. The next mystery how about showing something that was NOT in the extra life live stream, please?
  14. It’s good to get an update on what’s going on with fixing exploits that people who can’t play the game and feel like they have to cheat. As well that genius thing looks to be a tek saddle for the Karkinos, either that or a new insect that we don’t wanna run into in a dark cave alone......you would not return the same lol. As far as the events, definitely permanent 2x breeding and maturation would be sweet. Regarding the holiday events, definitely some more steak and potatoes to those than just the standard color and skins/costumes. I like the idea of a mini-boss that spawns on the map, I guess that’s probably what the alpha dinos are but even a fairly new tribe can kill those with relative efficiency without too much concern with a good Rex or giga and even a lower quality saddle. I saw an idea somewhere that ran along the lines of a “dino bounty”, that would be cool to introduce, along side of a normal event. Maybe like a tame or kill dino bounty, but the dino would have to be worth taming or killing, like it would drop some good loot if killed and taming would give you better loot or resource. The animal would also have to be tame-able maybe just a little bit more difficult than a normal tame. Ya wouldn’t want to have to passive tame a bounty Rex, that’s just bad ju-ju waiting to happen. Maybe another attempt at the crop event just a little better executed. With the kibble rework that would come in handy BUT I would say that be an ADDITION to a normal event. The colored dinos are cool in the events but they do get a little stale. If there could be a fair chance for a heavily bumped stat that comes with them that might be something. It does kinda take the incentive out of breeding for color mutations when there’s a flood of colored dinos in cyberspace to pick from. Make event dinos, EVENT dinos. A ton of ideas, and if implemented properly would increase the “oh cool!” and “this is awesome!” reaction 10 fold, just please don’t break the game anymore than normal trying to do that lol.
