Community Crunch 232: PC Server Transfers, Beginner Servers, & More!
Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! This week we'll be taking a sneak peek at something small and cute, discuss the opening of transfers on PC Crystal Isles/new servers, and sharing awesome community fan art and content!
Check out last week's Community Crunch for more information on Genesis Part 2, Crystal Isles on console, and other events planned for this year!
Crystal Isle and New (*) PC Official Server Transfers
We will be enabling full server transfers into Crystal Isles and our freshly launched Official PC Servers on Tuesday, August 25th. This means from that date, players will be able to download items and creatures onto the map without restriction.
Beginner Server Wipe Schedule
Just a friendly reminder that we're close to the next reset date on Beginner servers, which will take place on September the 8th, 2020.
For those not familiar, Beginner Official Servers are an experience for new ARK players to test the waters without the threat of thoroughly developed tribes.
Unlike our regular servers, these have undergone some changes. First of all, there have been some limitations on how much a player or dino can progress. Player levels hit their cap at 44 and the highest encounter possible for wild creatures is level 30. Tamed creatures can receive up to an additional maximum of 30 levels. Due to the progression limits, some engrams are not achievable through leveling up but are found via supply crates. Some other changes include the disabling of alliances and tribe sizes have been limited to 5 members maximum.
Once established on a beginner server survivors can choose to exit into the rest of the official server network by uploading their character and moving to another server for the full ARK experience. Downloads of any kind are permanently disabled on Beginner servers so once you upload your character and leave the server you can't come back.
these servers are not intended to be a long-term place to become established and, because of this, they are regularly wiped so new players can get their fresh start.
Upcoming Wipe: Sept 8th, 2020 Wipe following: Dec 1st, 2020
If the mantis is always praying, what is their faith?
Varies a bit. They're all in sects after all.
We'll see ourselves out...
As mentioned in the prior Community Crunch, the Official Network rates will be increasing to 2X following the next major version update. Following the update, we'll have more information on EVO events. Until then, we'll be using the EVO event system to apply the bonuses.
