    What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what this creature is?

    Jen Has Ascended!

    image.png

    Jen has been with the ARK team since the beginning days of Early Access and has been critical in the overall development and success of ARK. At the end of the week, Jen will be ascending into a new opportunity - closing one chapter and beginning the next. We will always consider Jen a part of the Wildcard family and are appreciative of everything she’s done for the studio and our products over the years. Join us in wishing her luck wherever her future takes her. The Mother of Parasaur’s will truly be missed!

    Mod Community Updates and Developer Podcast

    Image result for ark modding contest

    In case you missed our separate announcement post last week, submissions for our latest mod contest opened this Friday, May 31st. Check out the current entries and don't miss out on your opportunity to win an ARK Collectors Edition by voting on your favorite entries. In other modding news, sponsorship applications close on Wednesday night 6-5.

    Since the mod contest is underway, we thought it might be a good idea to check on some of the modders who have transitioned into roles on the ARK development team.  Since launch, we've hired over 30 members from the community for various roles.  Hosting is Cedric, accompanied by Dave, Jackson, Zane, and Josh.  Listen to their experiences in the mod community and the different perspectives of becoming official mods and working for a game development company.  If this podcast format is something you'd like to see with other topics in the future, let us know!

    Note: The goal was originally to post a video format but we had video issues while filming and decided to use the audio and do a podcast format instead.

     

    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.

    Evolution Event!

    Moros Intrepidus, but with extra feathers? Hope not. Don't really need another bipedal carnivore like the Giga/Rex/Yuty/Allo/Theriz/Raptor/Troodon/Pego line. Maybe this one can fly/glide? Be a more dangerous version of the thyla?

     

    Theriz? Not a carnivore

    I really hope you aren't a team member of W.c. talking like that is abundantly clear why the community thinks of what it does about W.c. :D 9 gigigabyte update with a couple sentences of problems that should've never existed. Abundantly clear W.c. doesn't know what they are doing. "Hey we know the games broken butttt, heres more content"

    these r two forums that me and my friend james have made about a ocena dlc, go check them out if u want a water map, @Atlantis, @SaltyMonkey and @Greatchawhee, anyone else aswell, we to want an ocean map ever since scorched came out.

    On a side note, i did say in another thread that they would be adidng creatures from ark aditions into ark for its birthday, also if this is true then i belive it could be a the deino, i hope so, and look at the facts, ark likes to ad well known dinos, have easy names to spell, or reasonable easy names to spell and take now r adding things from mods, so honestly it points towards a deino, i will rage raid wildcard like a giga or crack and steroids then rage quit if wild card tease us and it is just a skin or another useless item🤬, dont screw this up or u will se me charging at u with an endless army of gigas, reapers and anything else that will gladly eat u. if this is a new dinos or new useable content, then yay for wildcard.🤩😎😁 

    proof-reading is not your strong suit lololol

    Some YouTube channels are sweating up and down that at E3 Wildcard will unveil Crystal Isles as an official map to kick off a new Season Pass. Apparently this Dino will be exclusive to that map like the Griffin is to Ragnarok.

    I don't get my hopes up too much for that blessing though.

    So I have heard, I will sometimes set them to play in the background when I am on the game, and I have heard that is one of the latest rumors going around. 

    And while I would love to see just about any map come out at this point, and Crystal Isle is near the top of the list, personally I am rooting for Valguero. They have announced the map is nearing completion with an estimated date sometime in August. I know that Crystal Isles has a lot going for it, but it seems to have been out for a while and doesn't contain most of the newer items that Valguero takes on as a newer map. 

    Either way, if a new map comes to consoles, regardless of which map it is, I will be much appreciative and a very happy player.

    its tuff dealing with us... we are so invested/addicted to the game you helped shape that we get a little crazy, you did good jen, good luck, oh heres  a idea iv just had while writing this...... can we get a 1 LIFE SERVER ???

    (*as a experiment)

    you only need 1 SERVER running, it would fill with 70 players, they all get 1 LIFE, then when they die the get kicked, event/server lasts 2 weeks, at the end the remaining players win...

    ideas for days, hit me up

    Uh what if someone falls off a cliff or gets disconnected while flying above the water or something a hardcore server maybe but not a 1 life one 

    Next idea lol

    You couldn’t have played this game very long. “Mysterious Mysteries ??????” isn’t a new concept and they have done the exact same thing when revealing all other previous DLC creatures before they released Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction. The Raptor already exists in the game, why would they name a new type the exact same thing?

    i am a very long term player, i have only started looking at the crunches in the past year, and it has been a while since a mysterious mysteries was released, and i am not syaing it is a raptor, i am saying it may relate to the raptor, so possibly V-raptor, it is only speculation.

    Please, not more feathers o.O. The actual hybrid chicken-raptor looks bad enough -.-. You don't need do be correct with this feather sh*t... we have plenty of Mystical and Tek creatures that are not even existed in RL. So make them look like dinosaurs should look like: Spikes and leathered Skin...

    I see alot off people saying it's a Deinonychus, how can they be so sure of that? I'm not saying that it isn't but there are alot of raptors that are similar to each other in appearance. velociraptor, utahraptor(yes i know we have the utah already), dakotaraptor, Dromaeosaurus Albertensis just to name a few.

    I'm sorry but i think a feathered raptor looks alot beter than a naked one. Also who are you to say what a dinosaur should look like?

    Maybe this is a silly question, but the bottom of the post, the part about the Evolution Event says: 

    Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 7th of June at 1 PM EST until Monday the 10th of June 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

    It lists these 3 things, but I guess I'm confused as to what the "special perk" is? This is the standard Evolution Event isn't it?

    yeah, rockwell is not a real overseer, therefore he had no idea what the protocall was for when the arks decended. he is a separate entitiy, there fore meaning he has his own free will. he will most likely try and take controll of the other arks

    I also gew up with the lizard like raptors but i prefer the modern versions because they look less plain and more interesting imo. They have been related with birds from the moment they got named, where do you think the name raptor comes from? Also wanne point out that Most Dinosaurs in ark don't have feathers including the ones that have been proven to have them like the Gallimimus (literally means chicken mimic), So let the feather lovers have this one.
