  • Community Crunch 183: Upcoming Legacy Server Removal & Social Roundup!

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

    The Great Migration!

    large.598e538d96ba6_FataL1ty-Patrol-8x.j

    Once again it is time to remove some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network. Over time the ARK population has migrated from legacy to non-legacy and in its wake left many servers with low populations. Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works:

    Taking Down Low Pop Servers
    With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-4 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 11th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network. Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers.

    Servers Up for Deletion
    Below is a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deleted come June 11th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4).

     

    How To Move Servers
    If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above.

    Server Saves of Deleted Servers
    We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past.

    Mod Contest Opening Soon!

    In case you missed our separate announcement post last week, submissions for our latest mod contest will be opening on this Friday, May 31st. Check out the full announcement here:

    Social Roundup!

    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.

    @Jen @complexminded

    Forgot the legacy servers list

    Edit: Nevermind. I missed the compiling of said list still.

    Should of just made it, it's own announcement tomorrow as many people gloss over the Community Crunch but it's a bit more important than mod contests and non-commital answers that are usually featured.

    Where is legacy list pls

    Edit. Just saw the compiling still

    Just my 2 cents...i think your legacy players deserved that the announcement of servers deletion would be accompanied with the list at the same time. 

    Not doing so is really a let down.

    Why would I feel the need to switch to official servers if our legacy server is going to be shut down? After more than 6k hours of playtime I'm not going to start from scratch again. I'd rather ditch the game and move on.

    I’m suspicious of this great migration. Wildcard have been rather quiet as of late and with E3 around the corner, Ced mentioning we should be expecting content in one form or the other, by going off previous legacy server repurposing that I’ve paid attention to there’s a possibility something might be coming to light 🤔

    In the last migration you deleted servers that were not in the list, will they do the same again?

    Why not give us a list that you will be permanently keeping alive? So we know which servers to move too

    The kill list is always based on population. Not legacy server is safe.

     

    Get the server files and host your own cluster.

    Could you open up one way transfer from legacy? If the goal is to eventually shut them all down, it seems pointless to keep transfering to other legacy servers.

    the point of legacy servers is that they don't want them transferring to the current official clusters. legacy servers were a way to get rid of the pre launch servers without actually having to take the blowback of getting rid of them all at once. 

    They rightly projected that people would eventually lose interest and they could safely remove them in the future at which point they would only be angering a handful of die hard players instead of a huge chunk of their player base.  There was a never a plan in which nobody was going to be angry.

    a complete lack of respect or any kind of consideration to legacy players, not releasing the list of servers at the same time of this announcement
