SerMedieval posted a topic in Feedback and SuggestionsWould love to make a suggestion in relation to the last patch. I think it's cool that balancing is starting to happen but when it comes to the alpha animals they are just more of an annoyance and almost impossible obstacle rather than a challenge to overcome. Before hand when we had to use fire arrows to kill them it was more balanced because there are these incredibly overpowered creatures that can tear you apart but you still have a way to fight against them. Now it's just no use even trying unless you have 30 bullets and the animal trapped and even then, it could just aggro onto another animal and regen back to full health or eat a corpse if you kill a second regular one nearby. Recommendation - If you wont do anything about the alpha spawns at least bring the fire arrow damage back up. Nerf the exp if you must, sure, but like other posts about these alphas say they make the game really hard to like. We need a way to combat them. Lost a level 30 tame to those bastards a bit ago and I can't even take revenge with my carbine.
Been living in the Polar regions (15 sections) for about 2 weeks now and although it was pretty much an insane nightmare at first, it's really warmed up to be a place I'm proud to call home along with my company/alliance. Couple things I couldn't help but notice about it that I really wanted to comment on, one of which was a pretty important one that I tested out tonight. First thing to know about the polar/artic regions if you don't already know is that there's only 4 main types of animals you'll come across aside from birds and creatures of the sea. Those are - Yetis, Bears, Penguins, and of course the Wolves. My suggestions mainly consist of taming/breeding related stuff. First thing is that you can't breed wolves right now. They're pretty easy to tame if you build a custom taming pen or even if you stand on a rock/using a climbing pick to climb onto a rock formation. But there's no option to breed them. Not sure if this was intended because out of the wolves/bears/yeti's they're probably the easiest to tame despite being crazy to deal with. I have about 8 of them now but haven't tamed anymore because I'd love to just start breeding them. Would like to suggest that gets added. Second - Can't tame yeti's right now. Tested this out with a friend when we managed to trap a yeti in a pen and it was looking at him. Was standing behind the yeti for about 2 minutes and the option to feed it/notification that it's not ready to feed never popped up. This one makes sense considering how powerful and beefy yeti's are (starting out with over 2000 health) but this would be a nice feature to have if it is supposed to be there (along with the breeding). Third - Penguins. If we're supposed to get prime fish meat to feed penguins that leaves us with trying to kill sharks and probably dolphins/angler fish. It would be nice if we could get prime fish meat, even a little from regular fish or at the very least manta rays. Penguins really help with generating body heat so they would be great for survival in these super cold regions. Hopefully these are breed-able currently. Fourth and Last - Bears can't seem to breed in these regions or have an extreme requirement to start breeding right now. We have people in our alliance that have been breeding bears for a bit now in the tundra zones (14 section) but I feel that it would also make sense if under the right circumstances in the 15 zones you could breed them too. I get that they might not want to if it's too cold but I was trying everything to get an incubation/breeding center setup and nothing worked. This was the third setup I tried - https://imgur.com/a/bGZ6mZ2 but still no luck. Was attempting to get penguins to try and generate extra heat for them but I doubt that would've worked. My last suggestion is if it's actually enabled and they just need to be warm enough, maybe the bear breeding requirement heat wise could be lowered to something reasonable? Like a full enclosed space with or w/o one campfire or about 0 degrees requirement. And if it's not currently enabled for polar/artic zones then it would be great if it could be. These mammals are all we really have access to right now down here without having to go back and fourth from tundra to do it. Would give even more incentive to live down here for sure.
