  • Community Crunch 212: Legacy Servers, Winter Wonderland 4, and Sponsored Mod Applications

    Legacy Server Removal




    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.

    we would like the saved files from the closed legacy servers, in my case I have a lot of genetics that I can use on my private server, I think there are several people who also want it.

    tbh not a great thing with the killing of old server ...but still it may help with server laggs

    I'm hoping they use these servers and not just stop paying for them.

    they will but still they have to fix it somehow for the ppl that cheat ingame or do something that is not normal to get banned and not kill the servers

    why the Legace -PVP servers disappeared ? :steamsad:
    I had a character of 95 lvl, how can I restore it now? ....

    In this post, the developers promised to save and not destroy https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/articles.html/ark-state-of-the-game-r486/
    i am disappointed and feel cheated .....

    Many are disappointed with this, however, it is possible to see a noticeable improvement in performance on many servers returning to what it was before the disastrous extra life x8 farm x36 lag, in part correcting some of the flaws in the ark itself and in another of the players who use inappropriate tools to try to get advantage the game, but undoubtedly the players in the legacy cluster ended up paying the bill for everything that was bad about the new cluster and the legacy, what I could see is that some friends partially reduced the frequency of the game of the ark, others have stopped and a small part is playing in the new and inherited clusters. ARK's image was undoubtedly scratched and discredited. There are three paths to the future of the legacy cluster: 1) ARK will end the entire legacy cluster, stating that it is not possible to take seriously what the ark team writes. 2) The ark will keep the legacy pve cluster separate and will impose more difficulties or 3) try to improve the image by merging the clusters.
