  • 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!

    maybe for s+ you should make it so you can either have the full mod or just the stuff wildcard chose to have in it

    Please do not freely allow transfers into Extinction. If you want to allow transfers in at all, then please restrict it to Dino's that were tamed on an Extinction server, that way the map maintains its well thought-out balance. There's no need to contaminate it with reapers, wyverns, and what all else all over the place along with contending non-stop with tame caps. Enabling transfers of all dinos into extinction solves no problem that presently exists.

    Nonsense. You clearly weren't around when they opened up aberration to transfers becuase if you were, you'd remember it actually brought back many aberration players who had stopped playing on the server other than to feed their dinos.

    There is a big difference between abb and extinction and that is allowed Dino’s. Abbs are hard to raid or wipe because the most powerful Dino’s aren’t allowed on it, but extinction is different. Once transfers open all you will see is sausage quartz destroying bases in high areas then you will see gigas that have bred for months coming out. Then tribes will just bring wave after wave of titans. If you think extinction servers will survive then either you are part of a huge mega tribe that can watch logs all the time or your very naive.

    I have an issue with taxidermy. Im make a museum on extinction but i cant get some dermis to appear and i think its because those are native to their maps like the island bosses, rockwell, nameless etc. Can you make it so all dermis works on all maps? Please

    Is there already an official statement regarding modding on Ark and Atlas, whether using one's assets is allowed in mods for the other game?

    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?

    Speak for yourself you ungrateful millennial.

    Too bad your communication is not even half as good as communication between your sister company and Atlas playerbase at this moment. It feels like you were asked to help Grapeshot fixing their mess instead off working on ARK. Fine, you announced beta branch of S+ and kibble rework and after that what? Will you start bug fixing this game finally? Will you update this game to the newest version of UE4 that fixes tons of issues? We won't get answears to these question at all probably.

    Sur Xbox One, toujours en déconnection depuis la sortie d'extinction et c'est de pire en pire! Black screen à chaque heure de jeu avec un ping incroyable. Suivi de perte de dinos et d'objets. Une perte de temps incroyable! Pratiquement impossible de sortir de la base seul. Je suis très patient mais faut pas abusé. Vous ne faites rien pour réglé les problèmes de déconnection et j'ai l'impression que cela ne vous dérange pas. En plus, vous allez permettre le transfert de dinos sur extinction bientot, sans savoir le transfert des structure aussi? Le défi était de redémarré une toute nouvelle aventure sur extinction, apprivoiser les nouveaux dinos et les anciens et en permettant le transfert de dinos...vous mettez fin à la chasse! Avez-vous d'autres moyens de tué le jeu?

    RIP extinction servers. Great idea to allow dino transfers to extinction before fixing it. I like how they said they made connections better but now i dashboard more than ever and loading back in the game takes twice as long. Thanks wildcard! very cool!

    Could you please fix the disconnecting issue on xbox. I cant even play enough to get anything done and it constantly gets stuff killed. You've did a great job at building the game but please address game breaking issues first

    Yo ark team enough is enough it’s time to get real with 2 or the most hated things that’s in your game meshing and ddos and let’s talk about it and get some sort of progress to fixing these issues before any other game improvements. K meshing let’s talk about it may I ask why haven’t you implemented any sort of fix to this you have a everyone that plays the game plus YouTubers that also post things but yet you do nothing. Why have you not put in place a no build zone in these well known locations for meshing? People have built whole bases in the mesh because there is no no building zones or kill zones not saying put a kill zone just under the whole mesh but there should be kill zones in known mesh entrance locations and base locations under the map and have us the players report new locations and fix as we go.and as for Ddos you’re servers have no protection against ddos attacks a 6 year old could ddos you’re servers just by looking it up on youtube then do it.you need to look at your servers and look at your hardware and up grade them for better ddos protection and I’m not saying have the most expensive ddos protection but make it so someone would have to pay $1000 just to ddos a server for just 20 minutes and see how much ddos happens then. #makearkbetter

    Ark is still heartbreaking and disappointing to those who start new. The fact that people can just transfer servers with high level tames is killing this game and allowing trolls to run around making it impossible for newcomers to even have as much as a stone base. Everything gets wiped in every server that has a large tribe. The transfers are TOXIC to “The Island” seeing as the majority of us who have a base on the island and stay can NOT have any tames that would be able to defend against other DLCs tames. The wyvern was too much and now they have more tames that can just go through and wipe Island servers solo. It’s ridiculous. You can’t compete against someone with a Mag or Wyveryn. It can take a month to build up a decent base with two people and you can get wiped in 5 minutes. It doesn’t even make sense, there isn’t balance with anything and it just makes this game NOT WORTH IT. It’s like the game producers are going through wiping servers themselves so they can depopulate them. This game is dead and it’ll fail on Xbox game pass too.

    Fix Meshing. Introduce kill zones outside of the mesh.

    Forget about everything else.

    Transfers will destroy the game blah blah blah. This games sure is dead after they opened up transfers in 2016, then with Scorched Earth, then with Aberration, and now again with Extinction. How many times can one game die without actually dying?
