  • Community Crunch 190: Valguero for Console and Modding Contest Finalists

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

    Announcement Regarding Exploits

    It has been brought to our attention that there are some duping methods that are being exploited within the community.  The engineering team is looking at potential fixes and determining the next steps.  Exploits, like duping, are extremely important to resolve for a healthy community and we prefer to take action as swiftly as possible.  We will keep you updated as this situation evolves and let you know what to expect in the future as a result of these exploits.

    Valguero for Console

    Valguero has reinvigorated the passion of the ARK community and we're excited to bring it to all of our XBOX and PS4 survivors! Valguero will arrive as a regular game update, similar to Ragnarok.  You won't need to download anything special from the marketplace to initiate the installation.  The update will begin to roll out on July 19th 17:00 UTC.  Check out the post below for any Valguero questions you might have!

    Public Beta

    Thank you for your participation in the recent public beta!  Your feedback is valuable and has resulted in us tweaking the numbers even further on your behalf. Public betas seem to be a popular approach with the community, so we'll try to utilize this avenue more often when testing balance changes.  The feedback from the beta was compiled into a spreadsheet and shared with the dev team.

    Public Beta Responses (Google Sheets)

    There are a few other threads and topics (servers, events) that we will compile public response sheets for and share with the community in the near future.

     

    Legacy Server Saves

    For those affected by the recent server migration, the saves from those servers can be found below.  If you're looking for the NOTEK servers, they're under the "LIVE Legacy PVE" section.

    Summer Bash (Rates) Extension

    ARK_SummerBash_FeatureImage.jpg

    We hope everyone is off to a great summer in ARK.  Due to the delay of the event on console, we'll be extending the rates of the event until the EVO event begins on July 19th.  The event content (skins, etc) will end on the previously communicated date, July 16th.

     

    EVO Event

    Survivors on all platforms (including Valguero) will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 19th of July at 1 PM EST until Monday the 22nd of July 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

    Until next time!

    You would think that both the Windows 10 and Xbox versions would go live at the same time given that certification is through Microsoft on both, but nope. 

    Why are there 12 cross ark pvp servers 🤔

    39 official servers and only 12 small tribe servers? 30 of those servers have less that 70/70 and small tribes has at least 71/70 all day

    So Xbox  dedicated servers are not saving structures or tames after a restart of the game. That was a fun hour wasted. Can’t seem to get my friends to join ether, but with the server not saving what’s the point?

    Add more official PVE OC Valguero servers for Xbox One. You gave us one rubbish server! While every other region has at least 5+. Pathetic!

    What’s going on with the creature spawns in the Aberration area? The only things seeming to spawn/respawn down there are Spinos, Crabs and Anglers.

     

    I even did a quick fly-through on a dedicated (cheat) server and it was the same. Only once I went down to the radiation zone did I start to see dodos and bulbdogs, but not threats.

     

    Also, where are the blue gems? I saw on Reddit someone mentioned they are supposed to be on “high cliffs” but I’ve been all over the area, up and down and still haven’t seen a single cluster.

    PSA.

    The Official vs Unofficial ad nauseam debate is for another thread.

    How about finding out why the evo event wasn't on for the weekend even though this thread clearly states there would be one

    I don't have any control over how the game is handled.

    We all know that.. But since you like handing out public service announcements, how about giving us one we would actually care about?
