Community Crunch 169: Valentine's Day Event Concluding & Upcoming Server Maintenance!
Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
ARK: Valentine's Day Event Concludes!
Our Valentine's Day event has concluded as of February 18th midnight 12:00 UTC. However we will not be redeploying servers to officially end the event until 10am PST tomorrow, Tuesday meaning that event rates will continue until 10am PST tomorrow.
Event items and creatures will only stop appearing after your server has been restarted. Event items such as candies and chocolate will not despawn after the event concludes.
Upcoming Server Maintenance!
On February 20th beginning at 7am EST we will be conducting a small maintenance on a portion of our NA Official Servers. We anticipate the full maintenance duration to take a few hours however the servers will be booted back up shortly after they are taken down, which should minimize individual downtime.
On March 4th we will be reorganising our Switch network to better allocate servers to serve our player base. At the link below is a list of servers that will be taken down so please be sure to migrate to a server that is not present on the removal list.
Customer Support Relocated!
Our report abuse form here on the forums has been relocated to Zendesk to better facilitate our Customer Support's ability to communicate with players. The submission process for your reports will remain unchanged, but responses and further communication will come from Zendesk so be sure those messages do not go into your spam by mistake.
Structures Plus (S+) & Kibble Rework Beta!
The Structures Plus and Kibble Rework beta is still available and we're looking for additional feedback as we get closer to release of these features in the near future. We plan to have one more update to the beta for testing before the final version is released to the main game.
Please check out the post below for all of the information on how you can get involved in play testing this beta.
