          Dude I'm actually so glad I'm not the only one who thought we needed patch notes for the fucking planet man. Do we have one on the recent female gender buffs in the most recent patches? I think the devs haven't taken into consideration how many consecutive buffs they've been getting recently

                              Hey, so I've been seeing most of your videos, and then repeating the vides again for further understanding of the topics, but if it were possible I would very highly appreciate if you could list some sources for further reading that we could use. I tried just googling "Triassic expansion" but reliable sources are too broad and use too much previous knowledge so it is very hard to keep up. Again thank you very much for this videos and for the great work

                                    For revenge the mammal faction seeped into a primate class with higher intelligence now the homo sapient faction basically owns the game

                                      Personally, I think that the human buff was the worst update because now the carbon dioxide levels in the air and pollution in the sea makes the game a lot harder for water mains and weaker aviary sub mains.

                                        With the new expansion in development called "Mars" do you think human could take on different builds than earth humans? And how drastically different would they be?

And if their meddling via asking for various favours and etc are affecting the players or the server patches? Or maybe you'll add the god thing in as something different to the devs, like it being an NPC that influences gameplay or something.
