  • Community Crunch 245: Extra Life, Free Weekend, and More!

    Ark_Gen2_Haloween_SteamThumbnail_800x450.jpg

    Get ready, our 24-hour Extra Life stream is approaching on November 7th at 10AM PST. We're anxious to beat or prior year record of $112,206.35 and see what good we can do for the kids through gaming and giving. 

    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! You don't want to miss out because at the top of the hour, every hour, we will be sharing juicy Genesis 2 details and teasers.  If you want to know what's in store for Genesis II, be sure to tune in!

    Extra Life Events and Activities

    • Genesis updates from the ARK team every hour!
    • IRL games and mischief
    • ARK developer interviews

    • Official server rates bonuses as we reach our donation goals

    Extra Life Donation Rewards

    • Sponsor Giveaways!
    • Collector's Editions periodically throughout the Extra Life stream!
    • Genesis Season Pass giveaway periodically throughout the Extra Life stream!

    As we reach various donation goals, we will increase the Official Server Network rates. If you're an ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile survivor, you're in luck!  Our friends over at Grove Street Games will be matching our final rates for at least 24 hours at the close of our stream at 10am PST on Sunday, November 8th.  We'll be extending the event past the regular 24 hours as a gesture towards those with slower connections who may be downloading for a portion of the livestream.

    If you are interested in joining our team to help raise money, we'd love to have you!  Check out this link for more information on how to get started.  All donations go to the Extra Life organization and contribute to raising the Official Network rates!

    For specialized game modes, we'll be using the rates below:

    Tender Loving Care 3

    November 7th also marks the date that the Tender Loving Care 3 update will be reaching PC, Xbox, and PS4. Aside from the dedicated reworks of the Stego and Mammoth you may have seen in prior Community Crunches, we’ve added a bunch of Quality of Life changes to make your time on the ARK more enjoyable.  Check out the thread below for more information:

    We'll be keeping you up to date as we hit our donation goals and increase rates on the Official Network but we'd love for the entire community to come and hang out with us while we raise money for a great cause.  Pop a squat in our Official Discord or hang out in our Twitch chat when the action starts.

    ARK Chaos Creator is a unique addition to the sponsorship program; this isn't just a mod for ARK, the Chaos Creator mod will open a line from a twitch stream right to the game. Stream viewers can influence the game for the streamer either making things more difficult, giving them useful (Or sometimes ridiculously chaotic) gifts, or spawning a bunch of mayhem directly on top of them. There is also a version in the works to allow content creators to use channel points instead of bits if they choose.

    EVO Event

    ugh free steam weekend and Extra Life at the same time .... joy as said the free maps are gonna get killed .... plus the island is gonna be hammered while people might be trying to raise babies etc with the event going on ... looks like it could be an event to donate and just watch / casual play instead of actually playing properly ....

    Guys this is incredible. The fact that you donated over 100k last year was insane, but syntac has already raised 20k! Imagine this year's total.  Thank you guys so much

    i lost a skeletal wyvern chibi due to a server rollback. That is unfair i need it back

    You think that's unfair, haha?

    I lost my entire character. I've submitted a support ticket, now I'm just hoping I get a response soon. Though I am sure I have already lost the 15 Dino's I was raising along with the 2 event reapers. 

    But I am sorry you lost the chibi.

    Donation page just crashed.... it would be cool if you could link the amount to this page, so people would check the numbers donated here. Otherwise peeping Toms that dont donate are crasing the donation page... and noone can donate!

    I Also lost a 136 character right before 8x  not a happy chappy I’ve also subbed a ticket but response time is typically slow and 8x is in a few hours and I don’t think they will restore boss fights so we have been screwed tbh the time it takes to farm a set of fights plus the hrs it takes to get the higher levels is Insaine

    How do i report a bug that cost me 3 dinos and tons of stiuff they had in inventory? Is there a point to reporting it? Am i going to have my stuff replaced? Is this enough to turn me off of ark permanently? I work alot. It takes me almost a month to raise a quetz. Then it takes 1 bug to lose that quetz in 1 second. @&%$!? THIS SUCKS WILDCARD!

    Sadly Ark customer support is really bad. Also their admin are represive and have never heard of responding to threads. But will ban you very fast ofc. without a proper response or comment on what you wrote. They say the fish stinks at it's head.

    All these bonuses would be great if you we could play the game.   There is no update available in the Microsoft Store for PC Users.

    5.45pm GMT Extra Life event launches

    5.46pm GMT Server maintenance begins

    5.47pm GMT Xbox  44.84GB  update begins

    download speed 1.47mps presumably because the entire ark community have to download the same thing and WC "didn't expect such a high demand"

    Thanks Wildcard, for making sure I(we) miss the first 10 hours of a 24 hour event that we have all been looking forward to and planning for. Many people i know of planned days off around this event that you screwed up by launching a MASSIVE TLC update right at the start. 

    Imagine, if all those twitch streamers and youtubers that are promoting the Extra life event also had to wait the first 10 hours of the event to download the update.......your twitch stream would just be 3 guys repeating the genesis 2 trailer because they had nothing else to talk about!!! oh wait, thats what i just turned off!!!

    Absolutely will not be making a donation - can't even play the game for more than 10 minutes without the server crashing and down for about 20 minutes.
