  • Community Crunch 174: Introducing... Classic PvP!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    Introducing... Classic PvP Game Mode!

    large.conquest.jpg

    Classic PvP is a new competitive player experience for PC players which focuses on the PvP experience from the days of old. This new game mode will be available specifically on our PC PvP network on April 2nd. 

    The Classic PvP servers are a Snail Games initiative to shake up the current PvP meta. To kickstart this initiative, our existing Conquest servers will be repurposed for isolated Classic PvP clusters. Increased rates on these Classic PvP servers will allow tribes to get established fast, and rebuild after potential losses in the event that everything is lost.

    We are aware that over time content and creatures added to ARK have heavily changed the previous PvP meta, and there are many players who miss that experience. Some of the best battles came from those early PvP days!  Because of this, we will be looking to make more changes over the coming months that are tailored for PvP gameplay, including prioritizing inactive servers on the Official PvP Server Network to support this new mode.

    Classic PvP Breakdown:

    • Experience gain, taming, gathering, breeding, hatching, and raising rates have been doubled compared to our standard Official Servers (2x)
    • Tribes are set to 25 players max
    • Tribe alliances are disabled, though informal alliances are allowed
    • Servers have a maximum player count of 100
    • There will be 4 servers on each cluster, for a total of >25 Classic clusters
    • Each cluster will consist of The Island, Scorched Earth, Ragnarok, and The Center
    • Server transfers are only enabled between the 4 servers on each cluster
    • Classic PvP servers are unaffected by Evolution Events
    • Tek dinos (Tek Parasaur, Tek Quetzal, Tek Rex, Tek Raptor, Tek Stego), Giga, Paracer, Quetzal, Tapejara, and the Titanosaur are not available for taming on Classic PvP
    • All Aberration and Extinction content is unavailable on Classic PvP
    • Scaling of weapon damage has been reduced
    • No TEK Engrams

    We have always been interested in the competitive aspect of ARK and are looking to try fun and exciting things to bring back the best memories of ARK in its early PvP days. As we introduce this new seasonal Classic PvP mode, we'll be looking for your valuable input throughout the duration. As these servers exist to shake up the PvP playstyle, it's possible that they may undergo change and seasonal wipes as the mode matures and we take in more feedback.

    Server Removal:
    In order to expand the Classic PvP network, we will be removing some of the inactive PvP servers from our PC network on April 2nd. The Isolated-Ragnarok and Hardcore servers now have one-way transfers enabled so that you can transfer off of your server and preserve your progress if you wish to do so. Please be aware that if you do not move to another server before the April 2nd deadline, you will lose your character, items, and creatures. Below is a list of servers that are up for removal.

    Mod Community Updates!

    Don't forget that April 5th is the last day to submit applications for the sponsorship program for this selection period. Please be sure to get those in!

    Continuing on from last week, the latest episode of Wildcard Workshop takes our targeting list and puts in the implementation to actually direct our sentry creatures to attack specific targets.

    Happy Modding!

    Yeah...no doubt! It was my last post since uninstalling the game and decommissioning my cluster server. SO LONG ARK!

    Me and my friends aren't playing until meshings fixed or duos come out, we've been playing for years and these recent events were more than enough of an excuse for us to quit.

    This is just like the old days of ark but we should leave them in the past. They were good but I feel like the people participating in these servers will not get a good feel for the game because of the clustering and not having abberation and extinction.

    Um olden days PvP was when someone blew a hole in your base took some loot while only killing the creatures that attacked you and left a note. Also if there was a tribe trolling the server the others would band together a d take out that tribe. No .Eva wipes or nothing. So plz enable alliances and make it so you don't not allowed to entirely wipe a base unless they r a troll tribe or the need to. And make sure that you are actually going to supervise the servers and make sure they are cleared of trolls. Also r thread servers coming to consoles

     

    Bro ur such a raptorin bob. Listen wild card, don't remove the quetzal. Ok everything is perfect its decent just don't remove the quetzal

    Precisely! It is more than obvious that Wildcard has focused their dev effort (by shuffling more devs under their Grapeshot moniker) to Atlass. It's sad to see ARK die like this but from my group of 10+ friends that used to play, I am the only left. I have finally said goodbye and have no plans reintroducing this chaos and frustration when gaming is all about ESCAPING the stresses of life....not creating MORE of them....

    Hi,
    I've been searching all over the Internet since learning that the Conquest-Servers might get wiped April 2nd. 
    I would really like a definitive answer. Or just at least something that says something more than; "repurposed". What does that mean?

    As someone who has sunk around 1500 hours into the Conquest-Servers over the last 7-8 months (yea' , I play a lot), it would be nothing less than devastating if all of that progress/work would just be straight up deleted, with a week's notice and no real statement saying that it was going to be so. 
    If they are going to delete so many 100's of people's 1000's of hours progress, and just say three very vague sentences about it in a forum post... That would be just straight up wrong. 
    Some people, like myself, put way too much into this game because it is so god-damn good. Please don't piss on us like this. 
    Please let me be wrong...

    The only thing i'm gonna be missing with the Classic Pvp servers are cryo pods. I suggest and PLEASE add them to a boss fight on one of the maps for Classic pvp cluster only. That would be so awesome and it would make a lot of people more excited for this cluster!! Can't wait!

    Remove the Queztal, it'll bring a big change to the game and it will prevent some meshing and it will prevent the hatchframe queztal raiding. I think the only thing wildcard should add to these servers are enabling Cryo Pods and Cryo Fridge within a boss fight. Make it a boss fight that is rarely done or something. But cryo's were the best thing to come to ark and I hope the devs add that addition to Classic.

    It sounds great, but i’m curious how long people will play on servers with 25 people tribes. It shouldn‘t be more them 10-15 guys allowed in every tribe. 25 is way to much. No chance for players with 5-10 people that dont wanna play with randoms and just having the risk of a lot of insiders. 

    At what time you guys wanna release the new servers? Will it be announced or do you wanna keep silence about this?

    Просто удалите сервера конквест. Кто придумал это? Иди разбей свою голову. Основной состав игроков бросить играть на этих серверах.

    A cordial greeting, I play in Insolate, it does not seem fair to have dedicated months for you to eliminate those servers, also if they ask me to make a move to another server, because that is very difficult since the Alphas tribes are very well positioned, I hope you consider my request not to delete the LEGACY-NA-Insolate server.
    I have bought all the dlc, it is to play and not to be subject to the changes that you want to make, in this way you only show that there is no respect for us
