    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    Special Colored Dinos Ending Tomorrow!

    DiqEnxhWkAA62jj.jpg:large

    Here's just a quick reminder that the week of purple, black, grey, and dark blue creatures on the ARKs ends tomorrow. Be sure to get your taming done while you still can! The colored dinos will stop spawning after a server redeployment tomorrow at 1pm EST. We've really enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful tames on Twitter so keep tweeting them to us!

    Mod Community Updates!

    I've gotten a really good number of tutorial requests this month for potential bounties! Thank you, everyone. I'll be choosing which ones get turned into bounties at the end of the month.

    Don't worry if your particular request doesn't make the cut this month, any requests that don't get made into bounties will remain on the request list. To that end please make sure that if you are interested in seeing tutorials for any of the requests that have been made, or if you still haven't added your own request, that you visit the bounty request form and submit it. I make the determination of which requests become bounties based on their demand.

    We also have a new mod tutorial ready for you today! We're looking at Blueprint interfaces and their magical properties. Seriously, these things are so useful to mod authors it's scary how overlooked they are. We're starting to get into some very useful, but possibly abstract, information. If you find you have any questions, please ask in the thread and I will do my best to fill in any gaps.

    Upcoming Server Maintenance!

    At 1pm Eastern on July 25th we will be taking down some of our NA servers for maintenance on PS4 and Xbox. Check the post below to see which servers will be affected:

    Why couldn't you guys make this color event last longer ? These colors were actually cool , unlike the last event that lasted a month.

    Ya totally agree the last event was 1 month long and I wasn't as excited for it as this one. I would love to see on for at least 1 more week ^^

    Why can't we have breeding instead? That would be more useful than another taming event. Maybe even some more patches to fix a few things like the lag on Ragnarok. 

    Because a lot of servers are capped to all hell and they don’t need want to do anything to really address the cap issue.

    I would trade all the Crunches and Events in the world just to get some technical support on Xbox. All this talk of the next DLC, contests, and events, and all, but the game is falling apart at the seams on Xbox. Just look at the forums. People who’ve bought and paid for the product are getting no response to their service tickets and a big F U in the form of absolute silence. I don’t know what the Wildcard 35 person staff is doing with all their profits.

    Glad i am not the only one that feels this way :)

    Would you rather no event? I can't say this enough. There used to be a time back in the old days of ark where there was no such thing as a evolution event. And in that time harvesting, taming, and xp were half the value. Go to a single player game and set the harvest and taming to 0.5 and see what the days of old were like. A time when a 150 rex took almost 4 hours or a rock golam took almost a day and a half on sulfer.

     

    Enjoy the same old events. One day they may disappear altogether.

    just because something used to be terrible doesn't mean people should just accept the current state of affairs even if they are marginally better than they were.  I personally don't care what the official servers do but your response just rubbed me the wrong way.  The change you speak of, the permanent rescaling of what 1.0 means in the difficulty slider came around due to massive opinion that the previous rates just weren't fun.

    Support is lacking, kited, vapid in assistance and will be for the foreseeable future. This is unfortunately the reality of it(out side of those who will throw out anecdotal examples they experience on rare occasion to the contrary.)  Given the majority of players opt to play on unofficial servers and away from official/legacies due to a lack of (and intentional with legacy I might add) support,  You may want to consider then making such a non issue and making different play choices.

    May have to. I keep trying to give this game a chance man. I really am, after all I payed for it to be able to experience the game the way it was intended. I hope this isn't what is intended

    Well i managed to get around 15 minutes on xboxone playing single-player on the island map before another crash to desktop, so i have now uninstalled Ark.

    Wish i could get some proper game time without the constant crashes. Only upside for me is that i only paid £10 for Ark, feel sorry for all the other xbox players that paid full price for a seriously broken game.

    I was expecting the colors to be around until the next tek dino was released, kinda like how they did last time. In fact, i have been avoiding looking for good colored dinos till the rush died down. That's what i get for expecting wildcard to stick with the same schedule.

    More like... everyone was quitting the game which resulted in declining core game and DLC sales. The rates were doubled in December, 2016 and if you look at Steam Charts... the player base nearly doubled over the course of Jan, Feb, Mar. I'm trying to think if anything else happened around then that would boost the numbers like that, but i can't. SE was released months before. The sales boom in december, 2017 was aberration.

    https://steamcharts.com/app/346110

     

    /edit

     

    Wait a second. These numbers are highly suspect. There is no way they gained 33% in the player base in the month before last. People were calling it quits on every server I play on. And to top it off, last month it says they added another 13%.... yet somehow the total players stayed the same?  /confused.

    Wildcard,

    Please make a storage device for players to build so they can store the dinos that they do not use on a daily basis.

    A digital dino vault.

    Erm at least 2-3 weeks ago we had x2 breeding after the x3 for July 4th u must have missed that 1

    July 4th was 3 weeks ago. It was in the middle of the week so not many people were able to utilize it. I too wish we had more maturation events.

    At least on PC if you play single player you have a way to back up and/or revert saves. On Xbox the save can get corrupted and automatically deleted and there’s literally nothing you can do to backup and prevent it because Xbox saves to all locations simultaneously and automatically.

     

    dumb game design by wildcard to allow one save per map and dumb design but Microsoft for making saving function like this

    So can we get the ability to turn are tames to ice cubes so we can get rid of server tame caps. Something that does not require tek to operate. Considering that part of the player base never makes it to tek tier.

    Do an unlimited weight event, increased harvest health, reduced boss fight mats, increased mutation chance, or something different. If not, fix meshing outside border on scorched already.
