  • 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!




    Modding Contest Finalist


    The finalists for the ARK Modding contest have been declared and we are now in the spotlight phase of the contest. Over the next week, leading up to the public vote, we will be releasing small preview videos on all of the finalists. 
    The public vote begins on 07/21/2019 at 05:00 PM (PDT). Please check out these finalists and of course, Happy Modding!

    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.

    Current Server Backups


    Summer Bash (Rates) Extension


    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!

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

    What people care about is subjective.

    There is a bug for the valguero map on xbox dedicated servers. Using a 2nd xbox as server. The game doesn't save. If I back out the server or switch it off it resets to day 1. Other maps are fine. You keep your character, level and explored map. But that's it. You lose items and creatures.

    I have several invisible Ice Wyverns for sale, some are event(likely).  It won't let you pod or ride them though.  I have whatever level you want it to be.  Low prices.  Also have taxidermy stands with invisible wyverns.  Accepting any mats for trade that are not invisible.  Official,pve

    To bad this map is completely broken on Xbox even single player doesn't work crash after 30 seconds I don't even move it crashes 30 + times now in a row extinction works fine just thought I'd test see if whole game broken but nope new map is completely unplayable on Xbox please fix game it's been years an still we don't get to enjoy a finished product very frustrating was random crashes an rollbacks for first few weeks now it's completely broke won't even stay open just dashboards me I'm done playing on valguero I guess until they fix this game hasn't updated since new map came out so don't understand what's going on but needs to be fixed wasted weeks working on that map an now it's useless as I can't even open the map or play it an that's offline single player should work before anything else your offline game should work gg this is ridiculous if I had to pay for this map I would have been so livid this has happened to every map every game mode at one time or another fix the core game stop adding maps Dino's an items fix the game itself no point in adding new content to break the game what's the point if we can't even enjoy it or use it

    If you make spurious claims with no data to back it up, I'm going to challenge that.

    This, ladies and gentleman, is my new best friend.
