I love being updated with what's being added to the game, but there's also times I'd rather not know and find out for myself while randomly playing. Which is what happened tonight. Cruising a long the road, and I find a HUGE patch of Hellbug eggs.......along with a giant Hulker smashing his way around and fighting off Hellbugs. These are the type of emergencies I want to see! It was great fun, tons of havoc and required a bit of strategy while still not being super easy.

I'm sorry, but there's only so many times I can Hold X (I play on PC, but use a controller, get over it :P) on some lame hostages while fighting a few rounds of super easy 99ers. Bring those mini-bosses from the co-op maps into random emergencies. I love them and they give me a reason to stop what I'm doing and get side tracked. Elemental Hellbugs are also great, but we need a new skin with new abilities, not just re-skins with elements. Although they are much more interesting and fun to fight against, you should kick it up a notch. Keep up the great work Trion, you're headed in the right direction. Just keep bringing more interesting content instead of those little easy pursuits here and there. That is all :)

the episode 3 content added a new boss fight with elemental monarchs.

Random suggestion: Wandering arkfall. Funny why all sorts of critters and arkhunters gather around massive arkfalls, but never actually try to move it. A wandering arkfall would result from an incomplete arkfall, and players get a second chance to capture the arkfall before the whichever target group makes off with it. A Shadow War could also probably be waged where participants will have to escort an arkfall (or multiple arkfalls) to their team's drop point, with mobs constantly spawning to assault anyone nearby.

They need a new emergency mission with 2 hulkers working as a team.

No one would be safe. No one.

Rocket/tank raiders using mass cannons. No one is safe.

Random hell buy nest openings in the ground instances. These could be like co-op but occur randomly in the world.

They would be randomly generated underground stages consisting of twisting tunnels and chambers with different number of floors 5-20. Only 1 self-revive per floor and no player revives, different phases allow only a team's of 4 can go in. Each floor will get progressively harder until you all perish or reach a legendary item at the end, after a hard boss of course.

I can never find these ones. Well, let me change that. I find these emergencies all the time but the Hulker itself never respawns. I just get the banner saying "Wandering Hulker" so I'll search the entire perimeter but one never shows.

However, last night I DID happen to find one that I believe was initially in a different phase as after I died and came back (in the same area I was in) the barren, empty area that I was walking around 5 seconds ago was suddenly full of players trying to take down a half dead Hulker. However that leads to the question, why am I getting emergencies showing on my screen for something that I can't access because it's in another phase?

I've had that happen many times. The banner would pop up, but nothing would be going on around. No matter how much I search the area it never shows up and eventually disappears when I get too far away from what ever the game thought was going on.
