NEW CREATURES

JWA_Profile_Sil_Argenteryx

Argenteryx - Epic
Hybrid Components: Archaeopteryx + Argentavis

What this tiny avian hybrid lacks in size it makes up for in craftiness! DPG members have observed this flyer using pebbles to break the shells of nutritious eggs and large insects, just like the modern Egyptian vulture! Perhaps Argenteryx inherited the trait from its Argentavis ancestor…

  • Argenteryx is a Cunning Swarmer.
  • Use Argenteryx’ Swap in Distraction and Absorb to outlast Fierce opponents, and its multiple Rampage abilities to deal heavy damage!
Alert Buff and Strike
Evasive Rampage
Fearless Alert
Delayed Cunning Rampage
Swap In Distraction
Alert on Escape Evasion
Absorb

JWA_Profile_Sil_Megalotops

Megalotops - Epic
Hybrid Components: Megalonyx and Nasutoceratops

Unlike other giant ground sloths, Megalotops lives alone in deeply wooded areas. Unique species of moss and algae grow in the under-fur of this mysterious creature, which blossoms into beautiful flowers once their seeds reach the forest floor.

Megalotops is a Wildcard Counter-attacker.
Use Megalotops’ Counter, Stun and Camouflage to bewilder opponents, and deal damage with its Strike, Impact and Rampage!

Determined Strike
Distracting Impact
Camouflage
Cautious Rampage
Stunning Alert
Armor Piercing Counter
Camouflage On Escape

JWA_Profile_Sil_Glyptoceras

Glyptoceras - Legendary
Hybrid Components: Stegoceras + Glyptodon

Osteoderms like those of the Glyptodon cover the tail of this hybrid. Glyptoceras uses this armoured tail to shake the earth in jousting displays and mark trees at the edge of herd territory!

  • Glyptoceras is a Cunning and Resilient Stunner.
  • Swap to Glyptoceras’ in battle to trigger its Alert Swap In Stun, use its Cunning Strike and Instant Charge to take out targeted opponents, and deal your knock-out blows with its Impact and Rampage!
Cunning Strike
Instant Charge
Resilient Impact
Critical Rampage
Alert Swap In Stun

JWA_Profile_Sil_Rinchicyon

Rinchicyon - Legendary
Hybrid Components: Rinchenia + Amphicyon

Ever heard of a wolf in sheep’s clothing? The tricky predatory Rinchicyon uses its resemblance to its hybrid parent Rinchenia to infiltrate their flocks and prey upon weaker specimens! Fortunately Rinchenia can still outrun this dastardly hybrid!

Rinchicyon is a Cunning and Fierce Hit & Runner.
Use Rinchicyon’s Daring Evasion to increase speed and damage while dodging, deal damage with Strike, Impact and Rampage, and use Collision to trigger a guaranteed Critical hit on Escape!

Devious Strike
Instant Buff
Fierce Impact
Alert Safety Rampage
Collision

JWA_Profile_Sil_Phorurex

Phorurex- Unique
Hybrid Components: Phorusaura + Dracorex GEN 2

Phorurex literally means “carrier king.” DPG members have taken to nicknaming this armored Phorusaur something simpler: ‘the Gryphon.’ Both titles suit the territorial superhybrid, which carries its armor with it everywhere in the bony scutes around its skull and thick, lustrous feathers!

Phorurex is a Cunning & Fierce Hit & Runner.
Use Phorurex’ Cleansing abilities to avoid your opponent’s debuffs, lock them down with Alert Lockdown, and deal heavy damage with Rampage! Swap out smart with Lethal Rampage and Run!

Daring Strike
Critical Sidestep
Stunning Obstruction
Cautious Cunning Rampage
Lethal Rampage And Run
Alert Rending Lockdown

JWA_Profile_Sil_Indotaurus

Indotaurus - Unique
Hybrid Components: Carnotaurus + Indominus rex GEN 2

The fierce Indotaurus is a fusion of Carnotaurus and Indominus rex, two predators who have hunted near the top of the Isla Nublar food chain! Could there be a new Isla Nublar alpha in our midst?

Indotaurus is a Fierce, stealthy creature!
Use Indotaurus multiple dodge abilities to avoid taking damage, and some of your own every time it survives an attack. Indotaurus’ Cleansing Rampage will give you the edge against vulnerability inducing creatures while also dealing damage!

Fierce Strike
Intimidating Impact
Cleansing Rampage
Revenge Taunting Cloak
Pesky Alert
Greater Rending Counter Attack

JWA_Profile_Sil_Andrewtops

Andrewtops - Unique
Hybrid Components: Andrewtodon + Arctops

Andrewtops has a unique skill among the creatures of Jurassic World. Like the modern Argentinian Tegu, this hybrid can raise it’s own body temperature, becoming a temporarily warm-blooded reptile! DPG specialists believe this capability may come from its mammalian ancestry.

Andrewtops is a Wildcard Jack of all Trades.
Swap to Andrewtops to trigger its Lockdown. Stay ahead of your opponents with Counter Vulnerability and Cleansing effects, then take them out with its Impact and Rampage!

Daring Strike
Delayed Revenge Distracting Rampage
Cleansing Impact
Piercing Revenge

WHAT'S IMPROVED

Drone Targeting Improvements

Make each dart count! The red dot at the center of your Drone crosshair has increased in size on all Drone modes in order to help you aim with more accuracy!

VIP Communication Improvements

Jurassic Alive is better as a VIP! We’ve improved communication around VIP rewards with a few changes to the ‘Become a VIP’ Pop-up. Now, this pop-up has more information on increased rewards available in the Daily Battle Incubator. The Daily Battle Incubator will also now have a VIP info button next to it for all players!


CREATURE UPDATES

As more Apex creatures find their way into Jurassic World Alive, their stats have to be adjusted to make sure they balance well against each other. Our analysis has shown Ceramagnus and Hadros lux have been over-dominant within the Arenas and among other Apex creatures. Mortem rex, on the other hand, has been slightly underperforming. We’re therefore adjusting each of these creatures accordingly.

Ceramagnus
Attributes:

  • Attack: 1500 to 1300
  • Speed: 114 to 113
  • Armor: 30% to 25%
  • Critical Chance: 20% to 10%

Hadros lux
Abilities:

  • Resilient Rampage becomes Decelerating Impact

Attributes:

  • Attack: 1500 to 1350

Mortem rex
Resistances:

  • Stun Resistance: 50% to 75%
  • Vulnerability Resistance: 0% to 100%

Testacornibus
Prior updates to Testacornibus caused it to become imbalanced and shoot up the Arena rankings too quickly. We have reduced some of this creature’s resistances and tweaked its ability kit to allow it to work better in the overall meta.

Abilities:

  • Swap In Heal removed

Resistances:

  • Stun Resistance: 100% to 67%
  • Swap Out Prevention Resistance: 100% to 33%

WHAT'S FIXED

Bug Fixes & Known Issues

About 210 of those pesky bugs have been squashed in this 2.10 update! Here are a few of the most notable fixes that you are likely to enjoy:

  • During a Raid battle, the Archaeopteryx’s Alert Buff and Strike will no longer display as Area Of Effect
  • When receiving an error in your Alliance, you will no longer have an issue entering any space in the description field.
  • While in the lab, the Alert Decoy no longer has a precise attack marker on a none precise ability.

We’re currently working on solutions for the following issues:

  • When accepting a Raid invite from a friend, GooglePlay may logout
  • During a battle, Raid Boss Andrewtops Random Daring Rampage ability will not target a random opponent.
  • Raid Boss hit boxes are too large.
  • Apple device players may receive offline / push notifications while online.
  • Raid invite push notifications are only in English.
  • Icons and buttons are all displayed on screen after a drone session or opening incubators on a 1 gig Apple device.
  • Expired DNA Donation Requests Remain in Alliance Chat
  • Tooltip stats information are not updated as soon as their associated buff/debuff has ended in Raids

A note on data collecting
We’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who has been participating in our numerous surveys and providing us with constructive feedback on our forums and social channels.

I can already see all the nerf argenpteryx and phorurex treads

Wow…yet again…ludia manages to surpass itself on not thinking things through…slow round of disappointing applause. Creature markers…pointless. making it easier and easier for players to leave the constant Beta testing game behind.

The game is like a draft game…Will we ever get to see the finished product?

Also the whole “bugs” that have been worked out and nothing compared to the major bugs youre " working on".

Try solely focusing on the bugs to improve player experience then bringing in new “look at me” dinos.
