    Our 24 hour Extra Life stream is fast approaching and we invite everyone from the community to join us for a great cause. Let’s try to beat or prior year record of $112,206.35 and see what we can raise for the kids through gaming and giving. This year's ExtraLife event kicks off on November 7th at 10 AM PST!

    We'll be coming to you live from our Seattle Studio to bring 24 hours of entertainment, giveaways, Collector’s Edition boxes, game keys, and much more! Whether you’re a streamer, a donor or just keen to be along for the ride, we’d love to have you!

    Like prior events, we will be enabling boosted rates for all players on our Official Networks. These rates increase incrementally as each fundraising milestone is reached.  Further details on milestones and rates will be shared closer to the start of the event.

    If you’re feeling heroic, and want to support the event with your own stream and donation goals, sign up, and let’s raise some money for the kids! Gather your tribes, alliances, and stimberries, and feel free to hop into the official ARK discord for an epic 24hr adventure! 

    If you'd like to join the cause and help us fundraise or contribute a donation, check out our Extra Life page!

    We have no idea if that will be the same for Gen 2. For all we know Gen 2 will introduce a new map(s) that aren't split like Gen 1.

    Who said no flyers on Gen 2?

    Get where i'm going with this? Don't make assumptions yet until you see more detail. We hardly know anything about Gen 2 so far.

    Good point. I don’t know why people were mad about gen 1 it was unique although I don’t want gen 2 to be a repeat lol

    OK, i normally defend the game when people call it halo but those are literally just two halo rings combined together, I mean, i dont dislike it, looks pretty cool and looks like a neat dlc.

    Never played halo(or watched or whatever), but a ring is a common shape for a space shuttle... that’s kinda just how it be... at first I though it was a Saturn 🪐 type asteroid belt tho, lol.

    There better be a new type of wolf in genesis 2, Imma be really disappointed if there isn't. I've been waiting years watching 3 new types of parasaurs be released with no new wolves  :(

    I dont have problems about how wolf look like but with pack logic and follow mode.

    Those who tried using more than one - pack with 2 or more will know about. 

    Problem is similar with many spices like vulture, deino,  even rex.

    Wolf in cave - they don't know to follow, they jump.

    And sooner or latter will end stuck in some rock or stone wall that you need grappling hook and cryopod to unstuck it.

    Or will end in some hole or lava.

    If not other then its jump will end directly in front of you not allowing you to  progress with dino you are riding

    When attacking half of them will act like shield not allowing rest of pack to attack too  as they don't know to go around

     

    Btw wiki have for very long message that Lymantria will be changed or upgraded as confirmed.

    I ALWAYS thought a TEK Direwolf would look amazing! 

    Wolves as a creature are relevant even with new additions;

    all while being easy to tame/use for new players.

    Great suggestion!

    Any acknowledgement of the floating Islands being bugged on Crystal Isles? Or Ember wyverns vanishing?

    I believe it is a new creatures, though it might not be, and if it isn’t, then this saddle is probably meant to be a new use for it, maybe one of the only ways to space? And I do hope it’s PvP useful too.. Also thinking this whole map will have a Rockwell tendril themes like corrupted dinos in extinction...  

    It has to be a new creature look at the size of it .

    i wish you would let ut know a little earlier when we get breeding events. (weekends)

    i litteraly went to work, got home from work and was home a few hours on friday before the community crunch came out. 

    There is no chance at all for planing and getting ready for raising, just have to dive into it.

    some players have kids, some have very busy days with work and everything else so would be nice to at least know about breeding rates like mmaybe at least 2 days in advance. 

    Could post like just a message a couple days in advance and the release the full comunity crunch on fridays if friday is when you want the community crunch to get out.

    You go to the store and buy bread.

    Then you cut and eat the first piece of bread.

    Question is how do you know that second part of bread is green inside?

    That is the worst example you could have come up with.

    My point is you are already basing Gen 2 on what Gen 1 is like, when in reality none of us know yet what it will be like.

    Most big companies carefully build up their image and brand of their product.

    Customers decide to buy their product partly also on mentioned things so based also on quality of previous model of their items.

    Maybe the astrocetus was the battleship whilst the teaser is the small quick ship?

    And still no fix for Master Controller not dropping his flag, or tek trikes being unable to transfer off Genesis

    I would love tek trike transfers too !  Q.Q  Having them turn into deinonychus is frustrating 😞

    That teaser show another planet or mon in the background.

    In case we need that new ride for space travel to new planets then his 200 horses look really not a bit but a lot fishy.

    Ofc server synchronization is needed to not even know when you pass server borders between maps.

    With that avatar lost on transfer  could be history.

    Guess nothing of that will be true, its just  a teaser, a bit misleading.
