    Patch 10.0

    Good stuff. Wasn't there a taming rebalance that was originally part of this patch? I didn't see it, so either it came out in an earlier patch or it may have been delayed.
  6. What do you guys think? Legit? Or a bug?
  7. Jumping onto the Open-World Survival genre is another new game - Population Zero. I'm going to keep my expectations relatively low at this point, as the developer (Enplex Games) is a small Russian company. I've never head of this company, so we shall see where this one goes... I have at least applied to get into the Alpha testing. https://pzonline.com/en/about-game/
  8. Here are some of my screenshots so far, including a bunch from our long sea voyage last night. The maiden voyage of the SS Skoldjr was a success! We had a large group of COTP members with us, and we found numerous treasure troves (with big exp boosts). We even survived hurricanes and Ships of the Damned!

    Personally I am all for a delay if it means they will release a better quality game into Early Access (EA). If they were to drop it on the originally planned date and it had major issues, people would go ballistic and tear the game to shreds in their reviews. IMO the devs are smart to avoid that and wait until they are confident that the game will be solid for EA. Say what you will about the "Early Access" world these days, but it has clearly become the best way to go for developers. The main difference between "Alpha/Beta Testing" and EA is that there is usually a cost associated with it. However, the funds from EA are funneled mostly into the development of the game. It allows players to try the games before release and contribute to the development process. Ark has been wildly successful despite all of the naysayers, because at the end of the day they delivered a solid game. Do I wish the DLC's were free? Yes, absolutely. At the same time though; I understand why they needed to do it that way. Developing games is extremely expensive at this scale. Think about this: the people who complain about DLC costs are the same people who spent $15 (or more) every single month for MMORPG's back in the day. How many hundreds or thousands of dollars did you spend on subscriptions while playing games like WoW, EQ, etc.? Personally, I'm completely ok with paying ~$30 for Atlas when it comes out. It doesn't bother me one bit, because I know that I'm paying towards the development of what I hope will be another amazing game. I've put more time into playing Ark than I have in hundreds of other Steam games combined. To me, that makes the $29.99 (or whatever I paid for Ark back in the days of their EA) absolutely worth it. Same goes for all the DLC. Some were definitely better than others, but each time it renewed my interest in Ark when I would have otherwise been burned out on the game.
