  • Community Crunch 162: Happy New Year, Public Beta & Extinction Transfers Soon, & Xbox Game Pass!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the first (and also short) edition of the Community Crunch for 2019! :Jerbhi:

    2018 in Review!

    large.collage2018.jpg

    Happy New Year, Survivors! Thank you all for making us a part of your 2018. It has truly been an insane year for us. As always we are humbled by your support of all things ARK and we could not have achieved these milestones without you. 

    Let's bring in the new year with a roar, and keep on surviving in 2019!

    Structure Plus & Kibble Rework!

    We look forward to being back in the office this week and back to the grind so we can bring you more ARK this year. In case you missed our post about it, two of the main things we are currently working on in the month of January include Structures Plus and the Kibble rework, which you can read about here:

    The extra exciting news is that we will be launching a public beta on PC for the next round of S+ implementation and the kibble changes very soon. We will be relying on your feedback and making tweaks and changes during the beta process before these features make their way into the live game for everyone to enjoy. When the beta releases we invite you to break these new features as much as possible! ;) 

    Extinction Transfers Opening Soon!

    We have been getting a lot of questions about this lately and rightfully so. We will be opening server transfers on our official servers into Extinction on January 15th! This will be on all applicable platforms. There will be no transfer restrictions on creatures (unlike Aberration).

    Xbox Game Pass!

    We're excited to announce that ARK will be joining January’s Xbox Game Pass titles today! Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription that lets you enjoy unlimited access to over one hundred great Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles.

    We are excited to be welcoming Game Pass holders into the world of ARK. Best of luck surviving! 

    Winter Wonderland!

    Don't forget that Winter Wonderland is here but it won't be around forever! This winter-themed holiday event ends on January 7th so be sure to get your fill of this festive event before Raptor Claus and Gacha Claus make their way back to the North Pole.

    Fanart of the Week!

    Yay wildcard! Your crap official servers ended the year still trash, and began the year as trash. Can we expect less expansion and more fixing this year? Im still waiting on responses from my bug reports made last year. Do i smell more disappointment or lawsuits in the future?

    Raptor s+ and kibble rework. Sort the tek gauntlets and owl hacks before the game just turns into one big mesh war.

    extinction on the xbox is the biggest disappointment of 2018 . constant dashboarding . shocking rendering issues . dinos look better on pixark . orbital drops making game run at 1fps and crashing server . i remember day 1 of the preview program the island ran better . you need to make game run like a proper xbox one game don't add more stuff . oh and please don't bring atlas to xbox in 2019

    Theres no other game like ark. They just need to fix the major bugs to keep official clean.

    Nothing but dissapointment, im on scorched earth and STILL crashing every 20 minutes, for f/uck sakes stop sitting dildo's all day and fix your f/ucking game.

     

    Now why would they do that? They would rather work on a pirate game then actually fix a tenth of the problems on Ark.

    Extinction needs help. Watched my giga melt through the map and die last night. Slow painful process like it was going through quicksand after I got hit by a bronto in the wastelands. 

    Teleporters turn black when on public. And push dinos under the map if you teleport another on top of one that’s already there. 

    And the lag is terrible. Huge lag spikes every 10-15min that will kill manas when you jump and it rockets out of the vertical kill zone. Lost 4 manas in the last few days like this. 

    I have lost six manas to the same thing not including fresh tames that were on some of them that I had just cryod to take to base put in tickets for each one and still nothing

    Extinction will be dead in a month with transfers open. Sad to see that, honestly. 

    Leave it closed. It’s more fun that way. @Jen

    Its such a shame that transfers are opening up on servers, i fear this will kill extinction maps entirely. Most of the fun of Ark is starting fresh, and i feel this will just mean that every server will hit dino cap pretty quickly.

    I for one do not want server transfers to happen. I looked forward to extinction just because it was a fresh start and brought the fun back to the game. Get ready for server cap and massive laggy builds because you cant properly fix your game after 3 years. Time to play a different game that is not named atlas.

    PLEASE LEAVE TRANSFERS TO EXTINCTION LOCKED!!! 
    MOST SERVERS WILL BE CAPPED, WITHIN THE HOUR. LITTERED WITH RIDICULOUS STRUCTURES THAT MAKE THE MAP UNPLAYABLE, A BLUESCREEN AT EVERY CORNER. 
    EVERY PVE SERVER WILL HAVE GRIEFERS COMING OVER JUST TO USE CORRUPTED TO RUIN THE SERVERS ORIGINAL PLAYERS BASES JUST TO LOOT CRYOFRIDGES AND VAULTS FOR DINOS AND BPS.
    WE ALL HAVE THE HIGHEST QUALITY BPS AND DINO STATS SO UNLOCKING THIS DLC WILL ONLY REDUCE THE MAPS LONGEVITY AND LOSE YOU WHAT FEW PLAYERS YOU HAVE LEFT PLAYING.

    I REALLY HOPE YOU LISTEN TO THE PLAYERS VOICE ON THIS MATTER, BE A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT IF YOU DO NOT.

    WILL DEFINITELY BE MY LAST MONTH ON ARK IF THIS EXTINCTION TRANSFER HAPPENS.

    2019, ABOUT TIME WILDCARD TRULY "SUPPORTED" ITS TOLERANT AND FORGIVING PLAYERBASE

    It has truly been an insane year for us. As always we are humbled by your support of all things ARK and we could not have achieved these milestones without you. 

    Let's bring in the new year with a roar, and keep on surviving in 2019!!

    for the love of god leave extinction has it is. dont activate the transfers.  titans will have no use other than to kill them and that will now be a piece of cake.  no more taming on extinction has we all have the highest stats out there including myself.  it has been fun starting again.  NO TO TRANSFERS!
