    You misunderstood what I said. Its not a case of someone being allowed to do something while the others are not.

    It seems mining fields and resources moved around. Why was that necessary?

    My first impression is that several resources have been added to each field (not replacing the existing ones, but in addition).

    Sorry to say this, but worst update ever, kinda a nightmare. Ive mined the same field for over a year now. Now theres lotsa different ressources i find there and the area seems to have changed even. This ruined my game for now and i logged out at once, kinda have to get over that shock first

    I don't know when you last mined, but back around January, Mindark added in some universal resources. As far as I know, no ark resources were affected.

    Last time I mined on Ark was Yesterday. I have been mining Arkadia almost from the launch and have all of the planet mapped out in terms of resources. I can tell you with 100% certainty that fields have changed today.

    Well, I noticed right off the new Mission queue. I like it, but had a problem with it intefering with my action icons on the right side of the screen. I moved the queue to the left side of the screen, and could press those buttons again. Second thing i noticed was that Chips now tier. This is great. More info on whether they will have unique enhancers or use weapon enhancers. I hope it is weapon, I have bp's for skill, accuracy, and damage already. Is there a speed enhancer for weapons? If not, there should be!

    And the latest thing I noticed is the halix are missing in the dessert around the oratan villages in the northwest. i wonder what other mobs are moved or missing, and if entropedia can have the old info removed, as well as how long it will take us to update with the new info. Logistics....

    All in all, Im looking forward to more time exploring my home, Arkadia.

    You said

    We cant really say what mobs TEN edition items will drop from nor what those TEN edition items are. Its a MA sponsored event and they have asked us to remain Hush Hush about the details.

    1. So either you have been told not to say and neverdie just didnt listen
    Or
    2. Its the choice of the pp if they say or not and he did and u didnt
    Or
    3. Pps were told not to say but neverdie was told he could say and did.

    So which case is it?

    Because if it was option 1. Or 3. Then other pps should be furious, due too a double standard.
    If it was option 2. Then you are doing this to purely increase your revenue and decay on the planet because you expect us to just shoot everything blindly hoping that what we camp might have a ten item, and in this case many many people will have large losses to find out later that what they hunted couldnt even drop the things they were hunting for. Which is messed up.

    A better business strategy that will create more avatars willing to spend alot more peds there would be to follow neverdie's lead. Too many players have gotten fed up with camping and grinding a mob or bp for an expected outcome just to find, O sorry MA DIDN'T ADD THAT TOO THE POOL YET. Its much less risky pedwise to hunt or grind bps or mobs where u know the items have been added in..

    You follow my thinking on this?

    Keep in mind iv killed more than 250k huon and about half as many yuka and neither have ever dropped a UL item when almost every other mob there has dropped 2 or more.

    The other offset for ark in this case is you dont drop the caly shared items like caly and rt do which further lowers the chance of us dropping somthing nice in loot but, you wont at least tell us what will drop 10 stuff to balance that out a bit?

    Caly has already dropped several UL armor parts and at least 1 gun thats not even part of the 10 loot. Those items like shadow footguards are also in rt lootpool but not arks loot pool. So on ark u get ark specific UL or ten ed. Items but on other planets yo can loot the generic UL,generic 10 ed. UL, planet specific UL, planet specific ten ed. That hardly seems to be balanced for the people spending the money on ark, so I think being told what mobs can drop ten ed. Items is not unreasonable

    So can yo reconsider and give us the info we need?

    Your thoughts?

    Communities thoughts?

    Am I wrong?

    I think so yes. When someone asks you to keep something silent, you should not say a word. I think it is good moral from some planets that they do ask they were asked, and questionable moral from planet partners who don't.

    Also have you ever in the past heard that mob x will loot good items on any planet, except for Rocktropia?

    Still need to know was it option 1 2 or 3 from the list of choices in my last post and if nd did what he shouldnt have that should be addressed but chris has yet to say which of the the choices is the case

    Lets give ark dev team some time to reply

    While I completely understand the motivation behind them, I think these questions about Neverdie are a tad unreasonable. Chris has stated that MA has asked the A-team not to reveal certain information. The A-team has nothing to do with ND. It sure seems like ND gets special treatment from MA, but whatever the truth is on that front, if the A-team were concerned about it, this forum would not be an appropriate place for them to voice those concerns.

    If you have questions or complaints about Neverdie, I recommend you ask them on the Rocktropia forum or arrange your travel plans accordingly.

    this, i grinded oratan for months, there were 2-3 of us who figured out which mob would drop items according to the clues given, and nothing drops for anyone, and then months later, a VU comes, and the same day a ton of items drop...

    guess who isnt grinding on arkadia any more :)

    The questions are not about nd, they are about what the guidance the pps were given actually was and its direct impact on ark economy, so they are far from unreasonable and shouldnt be discussed in private, because I am not the only person who pays a butload to play in an inbalanced system as fallen pointed out, so I think its an issue the comunity should address.

    I spend a ton of money on this game monthly and am sure many many others do as well.

    Its not unreasonable to get a list of what mobs can drop ten items or if its possible with mining treaure or crafting to get them

    Spot on Harmony.

    I very much doubt you will get any further clarification Raven. It would not only be unprofessional for the A-Team to answer your question to the extent you want but also foolishly bad business etiquette as well and we all know that the A-Team are far from being either one. Read the posts from Chris again and take them in context with all the other posts in this thread along the same lines and the answer is quite clear without having to be spelt out in black and white.

    Neil puts it beautifully below --->
