  • 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!

    First no Breeding Event on Xmas and now we don't even get a NewYear-Event with Breeding this year?

    Only thing thats usefull of a normal Evolution Event is 2x Harvesting, no one needs more EXP or faster taming.

    And if you think it's too early for a Breeding Event on Extinction Servers, just dont enable it on them?

    Yeh its true,the players need x2 breeding or you want all players quit the game lol

    Happy New Year, i am looking forward to the Public Beta being more of a thing before live features are added this will help to curve game-breaking issues and should of been something that was added way back! 

    Will there be some patch notes to follow? I know there is a bug with one of the artifacts so I am told on Scorched Earth.

    While you are at it, why don't you fix the PAID bionic dino costumes available in various stores, you have content that people paid for and cannot access, new people will be coming in to this game and seeing stuff they can buy but will be very upset that it doesn't exist in game but is still purchasable!

    Server transfers already killed the game as soon as they allowed them the first time. PvP isn't really a thing anymore. All you see is griefing offline bases, desert titan raids on aberation (no flyers btw but nvm) and stuff like that. Opening the extinction servers now will end in a big mess. PPL will just bring tons of gigas, wyverns and reapers and red orbs won't be a challenge anymore.

    Seriously devs, do you even play your own game? Do you think about what you are doing?

    Maybe closed maps could be a new feature, 

    EU-CLOSEDMAP-EXTINCTION-PVP.smalltribes

    I can see this being a very fun game mode, you build a community on PVP outta mutual respect, sometimes server rules that everyone can abide by! and then if any noobs join and build and troll you can attack them. thats fun..

    But when unknown trolls invade a server when you are offline bringing Giga's and Titans, Wyverns etc.. you are rendered defensless..

     

    Ark devs. Realise this please! People cannot be on the game 24/7 even if it is PVP and raids are always going to happen, you missed the primary aspect of PVP when implicating server transfer! a blind move and quite irresponsible... 

    PvP IS PLAYER VS PLAYER! by doing what you do...-_- it is PvB! player vs Base!

    People raid when you are offline! as in they are living and breathing in the real world. why cant you respect that?? the second we go off it makes the server population low and raiders see this and destroy months of work, built communities and years sometimes of breeding lines! 

    You need to get together and say "PvP! what is PvP and how can we implement it in to Ark fairly and evenly for our community?"

    The answer is not always be online, worry like hell all day every day and log on preying you have not been blown up just because you went to work or saw your girlfriend.....

    Think about it.

    I have played since legacy. I have lost to glitches and exploits and kiters. But I kept playing. I have been dc'd so many times while just trying to tame or fly somewhere I have lost count. The Nerfs that you have made in the game have damaged a lot(Yes, I get it was changed for PvP), but I still played. Please listen to the players, your customers. Extinction is suppose to be END GAME material, so please do not let transfers in. If that happens it will be maybe a week to two before the map is done. We can transfer all our "good" dinos in, finish it quick. Please leave a challenge for us and keep the game fun.

    Please don't open Extinction up for transfers! 😬

    In my opinion, it will screw up the balance of the map.  I'm a casual player with a small tribe, however, I still can participate in OSD or get Santa Raptor drops because we all have the roughly the same dinos.  If Wyverns and other dinos are allowed on the map, they will drastically change the dynamics.  I know the intent is to increase popularity and purchases of Extinction, but there have to be other ways to generate revenue that won't kill the map. 

    Thanks

    Finally the Transfer is available. I Really like Extinction but i think it will be better with the Wyvern

    I'm thinking they probably wrote atlas with s+ in mind. Ark requires a recoding. I think they should have just made a total conversion option on console like p+

    Will Ark be available for xbox 360 for sure through the game pass?

    Your xbox 360 just caught on fire with the mere thought of trying to run Ark.
