    Legacy Server Removal

     

    legacy.jpg

     

    Earlier this year we reached out to find out what type of servers you're interested in and what legacy players enjoyed about their experience.  As we move closer to the release of Genesis and another year of ARK content, we have been monitoring the Official Network server population and Legacy servers.  Due to the current legacy server population, we will be closing all PvP legacy servers on January 28th.

    We've read the feedback from legacy players and know that you've invested time and created memories on these servers.  Immediately following the closure of legacy servers, we will be providing the save files from those servers for you to download.

    Below is a complete list of servers that will be removed following January 28th.  We appreciate the time our legacy players have spent with us and look forward to an exciting year of content.

    ¿Por qué dar eventos y dlc a legados si planean eliminarlos más tarde? Es irrespetuoso y deshonesto por parte de wilcard con nosotros que hayamos comprado un juego que en ningún lugar inicial dice "no juegues en el legado", pague el dlc génesis pensando en continuar mi juego y ahora debo  comenzar de nuevo, pediré mi reembolso wilcard personas deshonestas e incompetentes eso es una estafa, cierran todo el legado de una vez por todas , usted más que nadie debería saber cuánto tiempo se dedica a criar y hacer crecer una tribu ...

    Do not expect honesty from those who do not have it. If you still believe that the server with high population would be respected and that there would be a fair classification of server usage, pay attention to the 501 SA server, the fact cannot be disputed. If you still believe in the purity of the ark, answer honestly if the legacy only had an "extended" life, why didn't you block these servers for new players?🤐
    This is very easy to do and need not be a programming genius.🤨 Isn't it by chance that the 504 server of a few months, with an average of 45 to 50 people online on the island's fourth best server, suffered and continues roolbacks, dripping 255 or more to intentionally downgrade? Professionalism is so concerned about the image of ARK that it is closing its eyes to what happens in the legacy: a self-assertion of total neglect? As are the most distant people who bought the new DLC, you from Wildcard have stopped to think about it, it sounds like a bad and extremely dirty policy to respect, because they do not list what will be deleted before new DLCs are released. I am deeply saddened by losing a lot of friends here from SA, I have participated in 504 since it was created, and I can say in every card that much of Latin America comes into play, but talking to them, I realized why they do not continue to play in 99% of cases don't They stay and consequently don't buy dlc for several factors and all pass directly in front of WildCard, which unfortunately takes shameful paths.

    Talk to your friends, get your save and pay for an unofficial server and never have problems again.

    Yeah, there is plenty of pvp in legacy if you aren't part of a giant alliance, at least on the server I played. At least once a week there were people there to attack us.

    The "chill pve servers" are the ones controlled by mega tribes/ mega alliances, and its no different at all on official...

    Friends, what Wildcard does, is to lie to us and disrespect us ... More than two years thrown away ... In some legacy, many more players play than in some official servers !!!! What they want is to close servers to be able to use them in genesis and save money .... couldn't they leave a cluster so we could continue playing?

    Extreme disrespect for South American players, high ping often prevents South American players from playing on OFFICIAL servers and staying in LEGACIES, players who paid the same price for the game should have a little respect for players playing on LEGACY servers or show competence and create low PINGS OFFICIAL servers for South American players! They say Legacies are unsupported servers, but they do not create new SA servers, and remember that Legacy servers are home to many players who do not play OFFICIAL servers for high PING!

    That's primarily what they are for.

    It was a ton of fun back in the day when the first saves came out to load them to your unofficial and flip PVE to PVP then roam around and blow up every ones stuff.

    folks until you can get most players to actually not buy <add item>. None of this will change, they have zero motivation to do so. This is offering any type of customer service at all. They added the chibis so you could get past max level. Then screwed up the leveling of our characters. They rolled back the servers yesterday evening. This after locking us us after 1 warning and before that time had runs its course. All servers are running overly slow our se we got disco'd twice in a boss fight. that was 38 rexes 2 yutis all with 124 saddles shotguns etc. We all have a choice, we can continue to play out this dlc, as a lot of us have years into our characters. Then just do not buy the next one. In this way WC will get a hint. Guess they miss that most of us when something bad happens we say "you've been arked". I do not ask WC to fix everything but when we all are made to suffer because they refuse to fix any of it is a shame. As I bought the dlc for 6 of us, at almost 200 dollars this will be my last time. I am tired and can just continue to play the different servers I have at least until they decide to shut all of them down. Yes I get if people do not buy new they will not support the official servers. shrugs, considering they do not support us now in a few years so what

    Its not WC fault you misunderstood that legacy was borrowed time and would be culled until there was nothing left.

    The save files will be released if you want to pay for a cluster as a community.

    like on single player? yeah i imagine the sheer magnitude of dinosaurs and buildings on an official server would smash most PCs or consoles trying to run it in single player.  for the record i was suggesting renting a server so they can play with their friends still.

    Because they need the servers for other purposes. Like Genesis

    Yes we are losing, losing the right to play on servers with low PING, because we pay the same amount for the game that people today play in Official, it is easy to start over in Official, but what is behind are often 2 to 5 years of work and dedication!

    I and a bunch of my friends play on Legacy servers for specific reasons separate from official servers. I know almost every single person on Legacy PS4 and most of them say they haven't heard anything from wild card so when they say they spoke to Legacy players that is BS. I knew there was a reason why I was refusing to give them money for the Genesis DLC. And I'm definitely not going to give them any more of my money if they shut down my server which I've spent years on. If they offered us to transfer our dinos and our characters to official that would be more fair. But if their solution is just to shut the servers down then I have no reason to play Ark again and I have no reason to get any more wild card games. Feel free to message me my PSN is prime2448.

    All legacy players were given the opportunity to join official servers at launch and not be behind.
