Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
Valguero for Console
It's a light week in terms of news, as this week the team will be busy addressing any recent issues related to the Valguero launch. We'll also be identifying ways to address recent duping from an exploit that was isolated to the XBOX network. We've fixed this particular exploit with the Valguero patch and will work with the community to identify exploits that may still exist. Transfers should be re-enabled on all servers now.
As always, transfers on Valguero will be disabled for XBOX and PS4 for a period of time. The timing will be similar to PC (But adjusted) and updated in the thread below, once confirmed.
It may be quiet now, but there are exciting things on the horizon!
Voting Is Open!
The ARK Modding Contest has finally opened the public vote!
It's up to you, the players, to decide the final winners of the contest. The winner of each category will be awarded a whopping $10,000!
Everyone gets one vote for each category, be mindful that once you submit your vote you will not be able to change it.
If you are not sure who the finalists are we have compiled a playlist of short showcase videos for each finalist that you can find right here!
We've also set up a steam collection with all of the finalists for your convenience.
To vote, head on over to each of the contest pages for Maps and Mods.
Voting will close on Sunday, 07/28/2019 05:00 PM (PDT), so make sure to show your support for your favorites before then.
Voting will enter you for a chance to win a Collectors Edition box signed by the development team. The winners will be drawn at random after the contest has finished. One for each category.
