    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:

    Have yall thought of changing /adding the days of events.  Friday for us on the other side of the world from the US is already gone and past us.  Thursdays would be better.  We lose a whole day because we are not on your schedule.

    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.

    They literally said it was for a week when the event launched. Entirely your fault.

    its lands a split second then takes off again before any damage can be done to it, repeats that until all time is done. I'm a one man tribe so this sort of thing is a big set back that should not be happening. they should have left it getting trapped in rexes rather than this buggy crap that costs you time and effort. if you got the power on dinos, then it should allow you to defeat it in that way. 
    as for the wyvern method, no one has time to arrange the wyverns to go in. more time wasted than in the fight itself

    I have to agree with you guys on this one, ark is an amazing game with an incredible story, fanbase, and amazing overall content, and they have done an amazing job making the game out to be what it is today. But I fully agree with you when you say that some of the things they have done are sorely lacking in thought. For example


     

    - making content before bug fixes. If there is one thing that I can say 100% as a fact it's that people within the gaming community for ANY GAME absolutely HATE when game developers care more about quantity vs. quality. this sadly seems to fit Wildcard perfectly with the way that they handle this issue. They often will ignore any community advice on what needs to be fixed and if they do listen they will fix it on there own time (which is not unreasonable) but it certainly does not help people in the long run.


     

    - trying to do 6,000 projects at once (not literally of course) Wildcard also had some sort of idea up in that head of theirs everytime they said they were going to do something and then did something else entirely who here remembers “Ark Primal Survival?” I'm going to quote gamepedia here. “ARK: Primal Survival is an upcoming Total Conversion for ARK: Survival Evolved. It was first announced at E3 2016 and planned for release in February 2017, but is currently delayed until an unknown date. In this Total Conversion, players will be able to play, live, and breed as any of the ARK creatures.” Instead of releasing it like they said they would they added some more dinos a couple patches a dlc and completely forgot about it. They said that they were going to work on more in game content around the time they announced “aberration” up until it’s release, and instead we got “PixArk” and there doing it again right now as well when they announced extinction and claimed that was there top priority and then released “Ark Mobile.” I do know that these games were made by studios other than WildCard so it does not affect there work on the main game but it still seems it does anyway.

    (now I feel I do need to clarify. I am not right now and never in a million years will I hate on ark it’s an incredible game and they do what the can to give us the best experience they can. And more likely than not there is some misinformation in here.I Don't know...I wrote this at school...cough* but I am trying to do what I think some amount of justice so tell me if you agree or not and please tell me if I got something wrong!!!)

    They stopped making that TLC thing?

    Very good question. Scorpions are so broken right now. It's hard to take advantage of their torpor abilities when they kill everything before it gets knocked out.

    Yeah!  Horses are really the only thing that is close to being very functional for KO'ing stuff.  And even they are on a 3.5x damage-to-torpor multiplier.  Scorpions are on a 3x multiplier, while crossbows are on a 4.5x multiplier.  Horses come close but only on shallower torpor pool creatures with DECENT HP, like bulky herbivores, carnos, raptors, pteras, stuff like that.  I have a 900% melee horse that really saved me tons of arrows!  But... the scorpion being on a ~4x multiplier would be splendid!

    I think my favorite part of this event was when my server stopped showing up on the list, only to find out its been running this entire time when i got ONE chance to login over 6 days, I was so excited to tame a ravager in my favorite color, and then your failure of a server system and support system tore that chance away from me. Can't wait to see what color ravagers i won't get a chance to tame in the next phase!

    You think perhaps the next Tek dino could be something original? Seems like you're sticking to just the ones that already have tek skins, which is lazy imo. Let's be honest, nobody wants a tek Parasaur.

    They have stopped spawning but all remaining coloured dinos will still be there until killed or tamed.

    pls stop the 2x events. U already doubled the rates thats now the normal 1x and the game is geting way way to easy, what got me started playing this 3years ago was that is was a real challenge, a true  survival game wich it aint anymore and all servers are capped and close to cap this jsut adds to the problem.

    Why don't you play SP where you can adjust the rates because sitting less than 6 hours on a tame doesn't feel like a true survival game to you.
