Do you think the developers should remove the Deep Grand Reef entrance to the Lost Rive?

So right now there are three entrances to the Lost River, one in the Deep Grand Reef, one in the Blood Kelp Trench, and one in the Northern Blood Kelp Zone. But recently the devs have said they are planning to remove the Deep Grand Reef entrance and turn the Ghost Canyon into a dead end with a skeleton and some other things in it.
Here's what the developer Cory Strader said about this "The LR has 3 entrances. That is too many. And most people I've seen find it going through ghost trees" "the more entrances and exits the more likely players will explore only half of it before running into an exit and leaving" Do you think the Deep Grand to Lost River connection should be removed?

    Just put a monster or other environmental difficulty in there if you want to prevent casual use.

    While I can see the devs point of view, with players finding an exit while exploring and just calling it quits. But the inverse is also true. The more entrances, the more likely a new player is going to stumble upon the Lost River. By getting rid of ways to get in, the more people are going to go to other sources trying to find a way into this amazing biome. Such as the dreaded Subnautica Wiki, and going there is just a spoiler party.

    Besides, there is most likely going to be some kind of signal/coordinate for the DGR abandoned base. The Lost River Entrance is right next to it. It's a great starting point for new explorers.
    I've been skulking around here for almost four years.

    Yet I still have no idea what's going on.

    They should leave it as is and connect the entrances after 1.0.

    frankly i've never entered lost river through blood kelp entrances, i always go through grand reef. so if i had two cents in, i would rather they remove other two and keep grand reef one. besides, it's how degasi crew got in, with even their last base located there.

    For a horrifying moment upon reading the thread title, I thought that they were going to remove the lava zone's deep grand reef entrance. That was the first one I discovered.

    Yes, lets remove options because people might get discouraged about traveling through there! /s

    I haven't found the Blood Kelp entrance yet, I placed a beacon in an area I thought was the entrance, but I got lost (and surrounded by Crabsquids). My next try is to get to the entrance in the Deep Grand Reef.
  • AvimimusAvimimus Members Join Date: 2016-03-28 Member: 214968Posts: 402 Advanced user
    Third option: The entrance should exist but be so small that you can't get the Cyclops or Seamoth through!!!

    Why is there no an option for "who cares" or "don't care" in the poll; that'll be my choice, I really couldn't care less if the devs closed one of the three entrances if I am honest.

    I vote no but the devs must have a reason for removing it. Whether their reason or our crying is stronger remains to be seen.

    I'd rather they kept it. It's the only entrance I know and the last abandoned habitat being on the way doesn't hurt either. Feels like a natural progression. I remember back before we could access the biomes people knew the deep grand reef was going to be the transition to the lost river, it was the only reason to go down there.

    Do we really need 2 blood kelp entrances? Cut one of those.

    Just because some whiny YouTubers with low attention spans who spend most of their time playing COD only go through one entrance doesn't mean the rest should be removed.

    If the player turns around and exits or does not completely explore the area, it would be to their own disadvantage not due to lack of opportunity.

    The YouTube streamer that got me into SubNautica was Markiplier and Jackspticeye and I do believe they do not play COD.. True, are are somewhat dimwitted when it comes to things that are in their face lol, but they were comical about it at least.

    Well, yes, Mark and Jack do overlook things (which is sometimes irritating, but I can cope with it). However, Mark and Jack weren't who I was talking about. I'm talking about YouTubers like everynightxRIOT.

    Not quite sure what you're talking about, Riot's pretty good at ferreting out secrets in the game. He along with Phaota got me into Subnautica in the first place. Conversely, there's something about Markiplier I can't stand...different strokes for different folks?

    I really hope it isn't because of certain Youtubers that entrances are being removed.

    I often base in Grand Reef due to the convenience of the location. I like having multiple entrances because it forces me to remember where I am going before I get lost. Point A to Point B is a boring concept. If you want players to explore more, then it should be done by adding certain incentives to continue exploring.

    Admittedly, I first found the Lost River by going to the northwest Blood Kelp Forest, and from there I found the Big Skeleton, and then the Ghost Tree, and past the tree I found the Lava Zone, etc etc.

    What I'm saying is that I have yet to find the Deep Grand Reef entrance to the Lost River.

    If devs wanted a linear game, they shouldn't have made an open world. And also, the Inactive Lava Zone is inacessable unless you have the right tech.

    @Kyman201

    If you wanted to know the location.
    You can find it by going to the floating island and exploring just below it. Hard for me to say the exact spot but it is around that area.

    My first trip through the Lost River was through the Deep Grand Reef entrance, but on my way out I found my Beacon from my first attempt to get in to the Lost River, I placed it at where I thought the entrance from the Blood Kelp Forest (near the Mountain Isle), I always thought I placed the beacon in the wrong spot, but apparently I just got confused about which direction I was and didn't realize it.

    So cool when an entrance you thought wasn't an entrance turns out to be the entrance you intended to go through first.

    Lost River is a cool zone, need to explore there some more.

    The Deep Grand Reef goes into the Lava Zone. If it were to go to the Lost River, too, it'd make other entrances kind of obsolete. Also having both entrances to the Lost River through the Blood Kelp, fits thematically.

    that big open cavern near the Deep Grand Reef entrance is perfect for some kind of giant predator.
