    Valentines Day

    Valentine.jpg

    Love is in the air!  We know you love events and we love providing new experiences for ARK survivors.  For Valentines Day 5, we'll be introducing new content similar to Winter Wonderland where we saw the introduction of Chibi's.

    In addition to existing content you'd expect from past Valentine's Day events, we'll be introducing new content to collect.  Our pint-sized chibi friends were such a welcome addition we've decided to reintroduce them for this event!  You'll be able to collect the 54 chibi's from the past event, in addition to 5 new chibi pets.

    We know you're probably fishing 🐟 for more information on how to get your hands on the new chibi pets, emotes and skins. We'll hook 🎣 you up with the details in due time   Similar to the last event, we added new functionality that modders will be able to take advantage of in the future.  This advancement expands our item skin functionality to allow support for items like the bow that support multiple ammo types.  Simply put:  We're able to add skins to more item types now!

    We're thrilled to share new emotes, skins, and chibi's with the ARK community for Valentines Day 5 and we'll be sure to post more details as we near closer!

    If you really expected Genesis to be released on time, you either wear pink glasses or are unaware of WC's terrible lack of commitement to meet any sort of schedule/deadline.... enough said.

    All of you that want a refund well it sucks to be you. You have been enjoying genesis already, are you unhappy with your ghost, whoops ghosts are from Destiny lol the little floaty information thing. That is genesis content pretty sure you can only get a refund if you haven't utilized the new product, so yea lol

    I'd like to be able to trigger past events after they are over. Because none of the latest work properly.

    Man. ARK is really showing its true colors as wildcard continue to hide and ignore the "Genesis problem" and haven't mentioned a damn thing in about 2 months. No more item teasers or previews. Words on the release date. Or anything.

    Funny thing is, you can just google the release date, set for JANUARY 31 if no delay.

    Community: WC is trash, this game is trash, lag, bugs... yadda yadda.

    Also the community: Oh hey, when is the new DLC coming out?

    Everyone's complaining about the Genesis release date, but I just want to say that you guys should delay it as much as necessary so it's not an unplayable buggy mess whenever it finally gets released. Playing on a stable, functional map later is better than playing on a map full of invisible dinos and broken mechanics that crashes constantly now.

    But given your track record I'm not terribly optimistic that delays will improve the quality all that much.

    good to know valentines won't be cancelled because of genesis part one. Even more of an opportunity for pve legacy players to move to official now to take advantage of spring events and get established. When genesis part two drops, which servers do you think are going to get wiped? Also, my toon needs chocolates, lots of chocolates... YOU HEAR ME WILDCARD?!!

    Personally I prefer a delay regarding Genesis. Doesn't matter how long. IF (and i stress IF), they will release a DLC that is at least half or less broken than Extinction was. Any rush and childish complaining about it begs for disaster; and the whining will increase.

     

    I don't want any more server wipes because of bugs after the release, I don't want broken spawns of end-game creatures in your base, I don't want server crashes, exploits that enable looting on PvE, creatures dying during lag spikes or stuck in meshes. I am sick of these things that keep persisting and sometimes only get exacerbated with each patch and update. I finally want a polished, sufficiently tested out DLC that justifies every cent I spent on it.

    No rush; any delay is acceptable; people understand if you keep them informed. Just do a better job. What releases have been before can't be imposed as an acceptable standard, sorry to say this Ark Team. You need to do better.

    All of you complaining  about you bought genesis so you deserve to know when its released is your own fault. stop buying preorders from poopty game studios like this one. you gave them your money already and now they will do what ever they wants since they already cash the check in

    How about... now here me out, instead of working on rolling out these events spend more time on rolling out Genesis which people have spent money on for a pre-order which originally had a release date in December 2019. At the very least provide some more transparency into a possible release date, why the original release date was false, or perhaps start issuing refunds.

    guess its time to learn the golden rule of buying videogames:

    NO PREORDERS!

    They have said plenty just not here. There is no point in giving a release date for people to complain about when they could just wait till it is done and ready then tell everyone

    Time to add a fine print to this "golden rule" (no such thing)

    NO PREORDERS! Unless you are confident in the series or new entry. If you know it's your kind of genre or so on then it won't hurt a thing. At the end of the day how you receive a games is entirely up to you and not up to anyone else or any review online.

    Is it just me or is the comment section the same, everytime Cedric or another WildCard staff post something?

    Big part of the community: *complains

    Staff member: *tries to make things better by announcing more events, content and QoL changes

    Big part of the community: *still complains

    I hope they drop it and don't say a word about a release date. Over the years I get tired of listening to all the people whining how they took the day off of work and release date was missed.  I haven't had this much suspense and excitement since Scorched Earth was released. Although I won't lie. Knowing it should  be coming within the next week or two has kinda killed doing anything in game for me.

    I really feel bad for WC. I am worried about those guys. They published a release date for their next DLC. They even received payment from a large group of people for said DLC. Then they postponed it a month now possibly 2. The back lash will be great if it doesn't drop before the last day of January. With them already advertising an event in February and silence on the project they sold. Well it doesn't look good for ole wildcard. Either they are keeping it a great secret or they have failed to deliver what they sold. Oh the refunds that are now to late to apply for. Yikes. I have been with Ark since early access, and sadly this happens every DLC.

    For those without any sort of time keeping device - today is 1/21.  The currently published release date is 1/31.  Keep saying it's late or there is no release date...

    Was there even an official announcement for a date?  I have no idea a I just started playing again and wasn't paying attention.  That information doesn't look like an official announcement, especially given the wording there.  Reads like someone trying to estimate the date on their own based on speculation.
