Community Crunch 182: Auto-Decay Back Tomorrow & Social Roundup!
Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
Decay Timers Return Tomorrow!
A little repost from last week, now with accurate timing!
Over a month ago we announced we were temporarily disabling our decay timer on our official servers. This was done in order to allow for our customer support to successfully reunite players with their tribes, bases, and tamed creatures after an issue caused some players characters to be deleted. Our customer support has been able to address many of these concerns that were as a result of the incident last month, and therefore we are re-enabling the decay timer tomorrow, Tuesday, May 21st.
A note for those who have not logged in recently, if a structure on your server is over the timer limit it will automatically be removed when the servers restart with this change enabled. Therefore any spam structures will be cleaned from your server immediately. If you have refreshed your base in the last ~8 days (more/less depending on structure type), your structures will be safe just as they were before the decay was disabled.
We look forward to having our servers cleaned up tomorrow. Our servers may take a little longer to boot up (especially on popular PVE servers) with this enabled so we appreciate your patience during tomorrows server deployment.
The Social Roundup is geared to showing you some of the social activity you might be otherwise missing. Here we will highlight some of the posts that happened on our various social platforms. Topics might range from existing bugs to questions about events or future content.
There has been quite a bit of discussion on social regarding meshing since our last console update where our improved mesh detection was added. We want to acknowledge that the immediate results have not been as impactful as our players have expected, but we want to assure everyone that this is something we are actively working on on a consistent and daily basis. Going forward we believe console players (and all players) will see more positive action taking place, as we continue to expend resources on decreasing the meshing problems. We want to also extend a thank you for your patience with us. We have made great strides in reducing the problem, but there is still more work to be done.
ARKpocalypse servers wipe every 30 days. The next wipe will be on the 23rd.
In case you're not aware, our ARKpocalypse servers are a special set of servers that wipe on a monthly basis. You can join a freshly wiped server in just a few more days if you're interested in a faster pace environment without the threat of establish alpha tribes. Just search for ARKpocalypse in your server browser!
Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 24th of May at 1 PM EST until Monday the 27th of May at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:
- 2x Harvesting Rates
- 2x Taming Rates
- 2x EXP Rates
That's it for this post!

All the best,
