  1. Please, in the name of ARK, let the Sarcosuchus be able to go through Dino Gates. It shouldn’t need a Behemoth Gate just to let a Sarco pass through. Please, it could definitely fit through one. It’s about the right size. Please consider this. Thank you and keep up the great work on the game! 😀

  2. I’ve noticed that when I attack a raptor it will charge. stop. then teleport back in my direction, making it a 50/50 chance for another successful hit or not. could you please work on hit detection for the next patch as well? I love this game, I just stray from hunting because I get frustrated with having my arm all the way into a dino and getting no response. One last thing, shouldn’t raptors spawn in packs? thank you so much for all the work you do! You have truly made a gem and I love that my friends and I get to enjoy it!
