It is the end of the year and it was a rough one for WildCard. Extinction was a disappointment but people still bought it since we still believe that ark could become that game that never stops growing. However, things never were completely fixed. All the bugs from the beginning are still here and massive NERF happened a few days ago to perhaps the dino that made Extinction Worth it. Strictly speaking business they have a formula that has worked for them over the past 3 years. They have a formula and that formula is to over sell what they don't have to offer. Took me a long time to realize but I all makes sense now. Worst, we all fell for it! It was a genius marketing formula. And dam it if I say it it is exactly what our president used...AND IT WORKS. Lie, lie, and lie, and slowly but surely it becomes the truth. Surely now Ark is now run by negative publicity but it is working. However, there is a use limit to this type of advertising. It is funny to realize that we all have been bamboozle by Wildcard. It is even harder to explain how we can explain thousands of hours of playing in a game that everyday constantly frustrates us. But we have to realize that this is sadly not the best game, It is not revolutionary, it is not unique, and even less completed. We all have to remember the Trendy Vs Wildcard court battle about the WildCard shady business in which they [WildCard] had to settle for about 30 Million dollars for stealing company employees and allegedly company secrets. Or as Trump would say, "great business". But still, it is always fun to remember the past to see where we are going to the future. If not, we are bound to make the same mistakes. So now WildCard trying to be sneaky they decided to NOT called themselves Wildcard on the development of that new game...Sea of Thieves, sorry, I mean Atlas in order to mask that whole bad publicity they have gotten from Ark Survival Evolved (Now they are "GrapeShot Games"). But as their past shows in their [WildCard] court battle they are not as smart as they think. They openly say that GrapeShot games is halve of their staff including lead designers of ark. Funny enough in the lawsuit according to most major gaming magazines WildCard Argued that Jeremy Stiglitz or whatever his name is was never a lead designer of Ark. But look at what he says on his Tweeter! Not to mentioned that part of the big deal with his wife was that when she created wildcard with him she used her maiden name to avoid the connection of her husband [Jeremy Stiglitz] to wildcard. If this doesn't tell you how Atlas will be...nothing will. But please don't say you were not warned. It is time to let the Ark sink into the depth of the Sea and stop complaining or working for free for Wildcard as we write free ideas for them to later exploit us for money. I don't know if people realized but all the great ideas/fix ideas that you can see on Atlas came from the forums of Wildcard asking us the gamer to indirectly work for them for free. Giving them fun stories, giving them good ideas for character development, giving them good ideas for everything Atlas is now trying to charge just to start incomplete as Ark once started. Enjoy ark while you sill like it. But save your tweets for better uses. There is no reason why we should keep tweeting these guys. Things will not change. I also wished they had a delete account from this website/forum. They don't because they now people would use it and let go of ark... I vote for a delete account setting permanently! what do you guys think about this? I think as far as we go this is where the Ark hits that giant mountain and all the animals leave the ark. There is no point in complaining anymore about what can they do or not do to ark or any other game they release.
