I first want to say i refuse to believe this content was play tested at Jagex before it's release, This content is not ready or finished, Yet you guys are quick to tell us you will only release content when it's upto your standards. Well your standards are low if that's the case.

Ive killed about 200 Dinos in BGH, it has potential to be semi fun.

First the Frogs, finding the right one isn't challenging it's annoying I'd like to have seen.

FROGS:

Blue frogs decrease the dinos vision making the spook radios smaller.

Red frogs do 45k damage, but they are only 2 no more than 3 in the instance.

Gold frogs, lower change to catch, Twice as long to gather poison only 1 in instance and does the full 90k damage.

PATHS:

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but the Dinos on occasions do this Zigzag path, it dramatically increases time to kill the Dino, Going against your comments of being able to get 3 minute kills, which is why i think it's a bug.

Turn the ability to get more than 1 dino off, seriously it's not as much fun as you think it is.

I assume surging into Exits isn't part of the intended game play, but fact is it's easier as tall grass isn't always helpful.

There should always be at least 1 tall grass.

Drop enhancers.

x2 dino meat every kill.

increased chance for compacted hides, change to get compacted logs from trees, and vines with vines.

We would agree that regardless of the profitability of the loot box trade, the risks associated with them are worryingly high

HUNTER MARKS

Hunter marks, obviously it goes without saying, the higher the Dino the more marks you should get.

Improve the shop seriously, this was clearly done last minute.

You should be able to buy further improvements to improve game play speed.

Stun bombs would stun the dino on the spot for a few seconds allowing you to get away.

(blueprints) Distraction dummy, made with invention, when caught You instantly throw the dummy down and run away, giving you another chance, only 1 can be used per kill.

(blueprints)Distraction dummy 2, Is made with the preferred dino meat and filled with a stun bomb, It's distracts the Dino(if in range) better range with better invention, Dino bites the dummy gets stunned for a few seconds.

Tall grass camouflage, or allow us to plant tall grass seeds (buy seeds with marks) also dropped by slayer flowers. can be planted in every Dino location, How long it lasts depends on farming level.

Also why can't we make our own spears, we have just had a mining and smithing rework, New logs from the island, make the spear heads with smithing. using poison in the instance.

Traps, like bear traps, make with invention and construction.if in the path of the dino, slows down the dino until it's killed, also stops more often can only be used once per kill.

On a camp improvement note, I upgraded the Player lodge for increase chance of compacted items, what was the increase like .0001%? I haven't noticed any difference infact if everything it now seems rarer. royal society magazine

Thanks for taking the hit. I know what I'll upgrade last. I've just been working towards getting more workers.

I don't think anything can entice me back to trying Big Game Hunter at this point. It's truly the worst content I've had the disservice of participating in.

Yeah very annoyed about this, i figured it would be good as all the other perks are great, this one is a total let down.

Thank you for the feedback. I thought I was just being winney about Big Game Hunter, but if your pc isn't up to speed... Unfortunately where I live the internet isn't so fast hence I do get lag and guess what... It gets very frustrating that you can't get away fast enough because of it. The dino move great, but my character gets up hung. This running around to set traps and avoid the dino while may be fun to some to me its annoying - not fun. I'm lucky to get 2 kills out of at least 20 tries - I can't seem to get away fast enough, besides it's tiring running back and forth constantly. Maybe decrease the area of detection a tad... I don't know. Was looking forward to this, but I'm really not enjoying it.

I agree, the Dino moves way too fast or it's range is way to big or there ar too little safe spots.

It's not much fun just waiting and watching a Dino stamp around, makes it take all too long (if you succeed at all).

I've still gotta find the persons who actually likes it.

It seems that they think just because its a surprise, that they can get away with sub standard update thats a rush job...
When will they learn...
Shattered worlds... Rush job... No one does it apart from for achievements.
Player own farm... Community lead... Very popular content that people do past achievements.

I have tried since this came out and i just can't catch one. I have got as far as making 3 traps and arming them but i always get caught and then i have to start all over again. Its so stressful and frustrating. No fun in any way. I would rather go to the dentist
