  • Community Crunch 220: On The Horizon and EVO Event

    Community Crunch 202

    untitled-11.jpg

    Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

    We've got a short one this week. We're all busy working on new and exciting content for upcoming months.  We are remaining focused on the health of the Official Network and collecting bug reports and feedback from various social media platforms.

    You should expect to see a continued focus on existing bugs and polish as we round into the summer months!


    On The Horizon

    Enforcement Updates

    Mission Areas

    Last week we encountered a bug that rendered some caves build-able.  If you have structures within a mission zone (cave) on the Genesis map, you should remove them.  The Enforcement Team will take the appropriate actions to remove them otherwise.

    Teleport Zones

    Teleport zones are treated as spawn zones and should not be blocked or have turrets in them on PvP or PvE

    Mindwipes

    Recently we deployed a patch with a fix to the cooldown timer on mindwipes.  We are aware that this didn't resolve all the existing issues that players are currently seeing.  We are actively working on a fix for the remaining issues.

    Player Dedicated Servers

    We hoped to have player dedicated servers up and running but we've hit a roadblock that will delay us from being able to deliver the feature as we had previously hoped.  We will keep you updated on the progress we are making!

    Voice Chat

    We're excited to introduce new chat modes (whisper and yell) for those that found the previous chat functionality lacking.  We expect to have this feature deployed to PC in the near future!

    EVO Events

    We've enhanced our tuning system that's responsible for rates, like harvesting and taming, to be more accommodating for the various game modes and play styles that are available.  This will allow us to do specialized rates for those who didn't normally receive them.  We're putting the final pieces in place and we'll let you know when the system is live and ready to go.  We'll do a detailed post outlining how you should expect EVO events to work in the future.

    • 2x Harvesting Rates
    • 2x Taming Rates

    There is a bug in Genesis for the Moeder boss battle whereI’m not able to spawn in. Every time I try to spawn it says I failed the mission and all of my creatures get teleported. Can y’all fix this?

    Does this mean pvp and pve will have different rates for EVO events?

    Why make spots buildable around these teleporter locations if you can't place turrets near them?

    Same question for mission areas, there's a place in the middle of the three mission points in volcano that is buildable. I'm assuming that too is now a no no for turrets?

    Is there a rough idea of when a fix will come out for single player settings on PS4 resetting every time we start ark up? I'm blue screening all the time (mainly in the snow biome) and have to re set my settings 20+ times a day.

    Ive been playing since legacy dropped. I have stuck by why you guys continue to kill the game. All you care about its pushing new content. I think you might have finally broke me lol. I honestly dont give a crap about any new content. There is just no excuse for extinction or any other part of the game that is still broke and been broke for years to not be fixed by now. If you obviously cant drop new content without breaking something else then just stop already. All the new content you've dropped, genesis, chibis, holiday events just dont out way what has been broke in the process. You dont even act like you all care. Your response is it might be fix in a patch a month from now.  Really... it took you 10 seconds to break something and a month to drop a patch that didn't even work. Just look at the numbers now. Genesis is dropping and there not going back to the old servers.

    Please tell me the big lunar cave isn’t getting changed to non-buildable, sooo many people have bases in that spot and it’s been buildable since launch you can’t just change it at least not for pvp

    It would be epic if we could continue with the EVO rates while we're all in quarantine and isolation due to this annoying virus pandemic going on. It's a complete disaster around here in Florida and it just keeps getting worse daily. Businesses are shutting down left and right, grocery stores are picked clean.  So here we are lol, non-stop Ark for 2 weeks or maybe even longer.

    Hey, messaged on Twitter but I’m unsure it will ever get seen. The community crunch mentions caves in the lunar biome are supposed to have action taken on them because of a glitch. But this is very unspecific. We have spent the last weeks grinding a building up a cave on the east side of the lunar biome. When we started construction it was not a “mission zone” and if using HLNA showing boundaries there is no boundaries to be seen. Also, there is no mission kiosk anywhere close to the cave. Is this a safe cave to be built in? If not, why did this cave suddenly become a mission zone out of the blue? Are you guys going to give some more specific information before you take action? Again to make a point the crunch says that a patch last week made previous mission zones  Buildable. This cave was not a mission zone to begin with, so is it safe. It will be very disheartening if we and I’m sure many other tribes wasted their past few weeks to lose all the time and effort they put in.
