    On The Horizon

    Hacks/Exploits

    Abuse of game mechanics, such as meshing and duping, are being reported at a higher frequency.  As always, we will continue to implement changes to address any methods we have been able to reproduce.  Please continue to report any known methods via the ticket system.

    Enforcement

    With the increase of reports, the enforcement team has been tasked with a larger number of tickets.  This backlog of requests prevented our enforcement team from acting quickly to incidents that were being reported.   We've made a considerable dent in the backlog and hope to improve our response time to incidents that are reported.

    Events

    If there's something you'd really like to see in events (regular and holiday), check out the thread below and weigh in!

    maybe its some kinda water bug that skates on top the water?

    I would love that as a new way to traverse the water between islands like a water bug, Instead of always flying or rafts.

    I will say though it is too curvy to be an above ground bug, so I would say it is an aquatic creature as well.

    Lol enforcement lol what a joke.  You dont have any enforcement of the code of conduct.  Every ticket i ever submitted the so called gm comes in and either says "thank you for the recent ticket, no other info is needed from you at this time", they dont do anything to fix the problem, then a day or so later they just mark the ticket solved.  It's either that or they ask for more info then when you submit it the gm comea back and says something like "unfortunately i wont be able to assist you in this issue" then closes the ticket.

    It's honestly a joke.  Wc pays these people to enforce the code of conduct but they do nothing.  Where can i sign up and get paid by wc to do nothing?

    Ive even sent in screen shots of in game chats from the players that are violating the code of conduct as they are laughing at what they did, admitting to it, and mocking wc gms saying they wont do nothing, basically mocking the gm.  It's pretty sad.

    Why have a code of conduct if you aint going to enforce it.  What a joke.

    Oh, another sassy remark from someone who doesn't understand controlling the servers to that level isn't something Wildcard has access to do themselves. Before you say "pay for better servers", ARK's going to need a steady income (micro-transations) to keep those going. Then again, it depends on how strong the DDoS attack is.

    That’s just completely false. Look at all other professional gaming companies that host online servers. They have made MORE than enough money to pay for a server host that actually prevents and fights/bans IPs that are sending an attack on their servers. They just don’t care about their player basis so they refuse to pay for quality server providers. They also have allowed meshing and duping to absolutely destroy their active player base completely on PVP servers. Fixing the game first before producing more garbage content for fast bucks actually would make them more money in the long run. Sadly greed takes over and quality goes out the window. Hundreds of thousands of players have quit ark for good never to return due to the lack of quality and ark devs just completely ignoring game breaking problems.

    I believe your statements  are false... it truly depends on how the server is being  attacked. Hundreds of thousands have quit?? Where are you getting your statistics  from??

    Is it supposed to be a winged insect or a long leg crab?

    It looks like a Karkinos re-skin to me.
